This world exclusive video, first published on JFK Facts in 2014, presents a fascinating interview with CG Harvey, the widow of legendary CIA officer William King Harvey.
A commenter on YouTube writes:
“When relaxed and able to casually flow on her feelings about the Kennedy’s, the wife of wolfish CIA member Bill Harvey made a Freudian slip and said “When they recruited Roselli to assassinate Kennedy”. She corrected herself and said “Castro” but the truth had already been spoken. In Mrs Harvey’s mind was a good guy and a loyal patriot and Bobby and Jackie were idiots and scum. A true sounding of the politics around Kennedy when he was assassinated.”
Freudian slip or senior moment, CG Harvey’s comments are well worth listening to and forwarding to a friend or posting on social media.
Filmed at an Indianapolis senior citizens home in 1999 by Scott and Andy Alderton, CG Harvey’s observations provide a unique first-hand testimony about the hostility a senior CIA man harbored for President Kennedy and First Lady Jackie Kennedy. CG Harvey also expresses disdain for Robert Kennedy and describes her warm friendship with Johnny Roselli, a leading organized crime figure of that era.
The interview was filmed with CG Harvey’s permission.
The footage was provided to JFK Facts by the Aldertons, and is used with their permission. It was edited by JFK Facts editor Jefferson Morley.
Who was Bill Harvey?
Harvey was one of the big men of CIA in it earliest days. A former FBI agent, he was the agency’s first chief of counterintelligence. He ran the CIA’s Berlin base in the 1950s. In 1960 Harvey was put in charge of ZR-RIFLE, the agency’s assassination program. Robert F. Kennedy forced the CIA to transfer him to Rome in 1963. He died in 1976. CG Harvey died in 2000.
In the 1977-78 some investigators on the House Select Committee on Assassinations regarded Harvey as a prime suspect in the assassination of President Kennedy, because of his harsh criticism of JFK’s Cuba policy and the role of Robert F. Kennedy in it.
Although no proof that Harvey was involved in JFK assassination has ever surfaced, he has to be considered a prime suspect. His hostility to the Kennedy’s bordered on insubordination as this video shows.
Hundreds of pages of files concerning Harvey’s still-secret operations are due to be released in October 2017.
