    It is interestlng to see that the CIA files greatly exceed the total of other agencies files. Whether pre or post assassination, they were certainly very involved in the investigation. Why the intense interest in the case? And the agency “influenced” the press for decades to print articles favorable to CIA’s position on various facts the case versus the researchers, as has been well documented. Not a coincidence, in my opinion.
