In this video for Black Ops Radio, Dan Hardway, a former investigator for the House Select Committee, talks about the HSCA’s investigation in 1978 and how the CIA obstructed it.
Hardway, now an attorney in North Carolina, provides an eyewitness account of how an Agency officer, George Joannides, a material witness to the events of 1963, stonewalled the Committee.

Now, as the Boston Globe’s Bryan Bender reported last year, Hardway, Blakey and Ed Lopez are suing the CIA to find out what really happened.
