My conversation with Sharon Weinberger, editor of Foreign Policy.
I’ll be appearing at the Miami Book Fair on Sunday, November 19, at 12:30 pm with Nicholas Reynolds, the author of a new book on Ernest Hemingway’s career as a spy. It should be fascinating.
I’ll be talking about what we now know about James Angleton’s role in the events of 1963 on Friday, November 17, at 4 pm CT, at the 2017 JFK Lancer November In Dallas Conference.
From a review in Mondoweiss
“Angleton was was a leading architect of America’s strategic relationship with Israel that endures and dominates the region to this day,” Jefferson Morley writes in The Ghost: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton. More than any other man, the longtime chief of U.S. counterintelligence made possible Israel’s shift “from an embattled settler state into a strategic ally of the world’s greatest superpower.”

In Angleton, he has a character beyond the imagination of John LeCarré, perhaps even of Patricia Highsmith.
Some of the best reporting on the new JFK files is coming from USA Today.
In today’s story, the national daily notes an essential newsworthy fact revealed in the newly declassified records.
Within hours of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the CIA started to distance itself from any connection to suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, recently released secret records from the National Archives show.
Reporters ask me, “Is there a smoking gun in the new JFK files?”
I used to say “No.” But after reading the CIA’s latest releases, I have changed my mind.
Now I say, “Yes, there is at least one potential smoking gun in the new JFK files, and it may soon come into public view.”
This from my friend Dan Hardway, West Virginia litigator and former congressional investigator, who knows what to look for in the new JFK files.
While I doubt the existence of a “smoking gun,” the circumstantial evidence we might look for in the delayed files could show a correlation between Lee Harvey Oswald’s activities in New Orleans and Mexico City in the late summer and fall of 1963 and CIA covert operations that were occurring at that time.
