Bowing to public opinion, the CIA releases more JFK files

Good news: The CIA has released another batch of JFK assassination-related records, according to the New York Times.

In the face of criticism from a federal judge and the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, the CIA has released 676 new documents related to the murder of President Kennedy in Dallas, Texas, in November 1963.

As always, I’m looking for any files on my top 5 JFK suspects: James Angleton, Bill Harvey, David Phillips, Ann Goodpasture, and George Joannides.  And anything on CIA operations in Mexico City and New Orleans.

If you find something interesting, drop me a line.

Since we published the first on-camera interview with CIA widow, CG Harvey, I’ve been getting grief for publishing her allegedly false statements about John, Jackie and Robert Kennedy.

I don’t see anything demonstrably false in what CG Harvey said. I believe the story that JFK had invited Italian prostitutes into his bed two at a time but I can’t prove that it’s true. I agree that CG Harvey’s comments need more context.

Who was William K. Harvey?

When the CIA split with JFK

“Harvey approved the dispatch of six three-man teams to Cuba, on either October 21, or 22, 1962, as the missile crisis heated up. The missions were launched at the specific request of the Pentagon, as part of the standing interagency Command Relationship Agreement. The military was reckoning with an invasion of Cuba by air and sea; it’s forces needed support on the ground to help the landings. Harvey did what was right operationally….the climax came at a top-drawer meeting in the Cabinet Room of the White House on October 26….Harvey chose to tell the Kennedy brothers what he thought of them and their handling of the situation. “If you hadn’t fucked up the Bay of Pigs, we wouldn’t be in this fucking mess!”

Plausible suspect: William K. Harvey

“William King Harvey is worthy of our attention,” writes Alan Dale. In 1962, Harvey served as chief of Task Force W, the CIA’s anti-Castro operation, and then lost his job after an argument with Attorney General Robert Kennedy. When Congress investigated JFK’s assassination in the 1970s, the CIA pulled a 123-page file on Harvey’s operational activities.

All of that file remains secret, according to the National Archives online database.

Dale writes of Harvey:
