What a senior KGB officer said about Lee Harvey Oswald

Nikolai Leonov

Insider: Fidel Castro, Nikolai Leonov, and Nikita Khrushchev

Nikolai S. Leonov has an interesting perspective on the story of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Leonov joined the KGB in 1958 and retired in 1991 with the rank of Lieutenant General. In the spring of 1963, his fluency in Spanish gained him the job as the Russian interpreter for Cuba president Fidel Castro during his first visit to the USSR in the spring of 1963, In the photo above he is the man standing between and behind Castro and Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.

HuffPo asks the right JFK questions

This video sticks to facts, avoids theories, asks the right questions: What is new in the files? And what does what is new tell us about the causes of the assassination? Was it a coup to block JFK’s negotiations with Soviets and Cubans?

Who was Valery Kostikov?

Was he a KGB assassin? Did he have contact with Lee Harvey Oswald before the assassination of President Kennedy?

Some answers from my piece (co-authored by Rex Bradford)  in Newsweek:  “America’s most powerful conspiracy theorist will decide the fate of CIA trove.”

Think there’s nothing significant in these JFK records? Think again.

Daily Beast goes for an unfounded JFK theory

In a piece for the Daily Beast, How the KGB Duped Oliver Stone, Max Holland argues that an article published in an Italian newspaper in 1967 was a KGB disinformation operation that convinced the American people and Oliver Stone that JFK was killed by a CIA conspiracy.

There are many problems with this claim. I’ll just mention four. Read more

Judge Tunheim: I saw Oswald’s KGB file and it was five feet tall

Lee Harvey Oswald,

Lee Harvey Oswald, Marine and defector

The Soviet intelligence service has a massive file on accused presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald that has never been public, said federal judge John Tunheim, former chairman of a government declassification panel

Tunheim said he reviewed the file in Moscow in 1994 on behalf of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), which declassified millions of pages of JFK documents in the 1990s.

“The KGB file stood five feet tall when you stacked all the boxes up,” Tunheim told a Washington press conference on Thursday.

KGB man talks about his time with Oswald

As a historian of the Cold War, I found these comments by retired KGB officer  Nikolai Leonov, to be fascinating.

Assassination in the struggle for power in Cuba

Reader Photon asks:

Assassination was not his tactic.

“So ‘LBJ and crew’ murdered John Kennedy, but Fidel ‘most certainly was not [involved]’? While I consider it unlikely that Oswald could have cooperated with anybody in a conspiracy, his visit to the Cuban Embassy certainly is intriguing. It is not like Fidel had never sanctioned political assassination in the past. For 50 years he has gotten away with knocking off Camilo Cienfuegos after Huber Matos didn’t do it for him.”

The ensuing fast and furious debate in the comments section on this subject is reminder that the history of assassination as a political technique in the struggle for power in Cuba from 1955 to 1965 is definitely relevant to any discussion of the assassination of JFK.
