In a new sworn declaration filed in federal court, former JFK investigator Dan Hardway tells the story of how the CIA stonewalled him and other investigators for the House Select Committee of Assassinations in 1978.
Hardway’s first-person story is the most vivid and powerful account of how the CIA obstructed Congress’s attempt to investigate JFK’s assassination in 1978 since Gaeton Fonzi’s book, The Last Investigation. Hardway adds new detail to the story Fonzi told by detailing the obstructionist tactics of George Joannides that he personally experienced.
On our third podcast (now downloadable!) featuring analysis and discussion of topics relevant to the study of President Kennedy’s assassination including: the 48th anniversary of Robert Kennedy’s assassination, Jeff Morley’s new ebook, CIA & JFK, and his next book on James Jesus Angleton (2017). We also delved into Dan Hardway’s remarkable declaration and his recent articles at aarclibrary.org and 2017JFK.org.
Jacob Carter, millennial author, wants his generation to know and care about the JFK assassination story. The result is “Before History Dies,” an introduction to the debate over the causes of JFK’s death via interviews with thoughtful people who hold diverse opinions on the subject.
They include: Anthony Summers, David Talbot, Dan Hardway, Marie Fonzi, Dale K. Myers, Max Holland, Judge John R. Tunheim, and Gerald Posner.
I’m not unbiased because I am interviewed too, and because Carter is the social media manager for JFK Facts and a friend. Nonetheless, I have to say this is not just an excellent introduction to the JFK story. Its a model for people of any age for how to think about the JFK story: with humility, tranquility, and courage.
Dan Hardway offers another gem of historic audio to our discussion of how Allen Dulles came to be named to the Warren Commission. He cites this phone call that President Johnson made to Allen Dulles on November 29, 1963, informing him he would be on the Commission.

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.
“Initially, the CIA was cooperating — we had no reason to think that they weren’t… [It was] when we started pushing… on investigating the disinformation efforts after the assassination, and realizing that I could tie just about every single disinformation effort directly back to David Phillips, that George Joannides gets involved.”—Dan Hardway.
“It was time to fight one last time to ascertain what happened to JFK and to our investigation into his assassination,” [Ed] Lopez, who is now the chief counsel for a school district in Rochester, N.Y., said in an interview.
He is joined in the effort by two other former investigators, researcher Dan Hardway and G. Robert Blakey, the panel’s staff director.
