From Bryan Bender of the The Boston Globe:
“The CIA has a long history of blocking congressional oversight of its activities. ‘I think there is a pattern,’ said John Prados, a senior fellow at the National Security Archive at George Washington University and author of ‘The Family Jewels: The CIA, Secrecy, and Presidential Power.'”

The CIA also obstructed investigations into known Nazi war criminals they had recruited for espionage during the Cold War: In Cold War, U.S. Spy Agencies Used 1,000 Nazis http://nyti.ms/1rHIyLV

A few years later, those very German scientists and engineers took us to the moon.
BTW: I highly recommend the Science Channel and the Military Channel, as both have JFK-related material.
