New batch of JFK assassination files illuminate CIA’s interest in Oswald

It’s going to take a while to make sense of the November 3 JFK file release, which contains much more significant information than previous releases on July 24 and October 26.

The Washington Post digs in and confirms my point. Pre-assassination communications about the unimportant Lee Oswald went straight to the top of the agency, i.e., to James Angleton.

One of the CIA files details Oswald’s visits to the Cuban consulate and Soviet embassy in Mexico City in the weeks before he fatally shot Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963 in Dallas. Oswald himself was shot by nightclub owner Jack Ruby in Dallas police headquarters on live television, fueling decades of conspiracy theories about the assassination.
