Poll: Was Nosenko A Defector, A Plant, Or Had He Been Kidnapped By The Evil, Evil CIA?

Recommended Posts

Tommy - you need to start answering your own questions. When I read this series it looks like harassment to me. Chris may not agree. I don't know. But he is being very patient.

well... thinking and typing at the same time here...  If Angleton was a double agent...

... and he was involved in planning the assassination and recruiting co-conspirators, one could make the argument that the KGB was involved in the plot.

... it might explain why he wasn't able to "catch" his high echelon mole despite the hunt.

... a motive could emerge that would be consistent with current KGB objectives.. sewing discord and mistrust about US institutions and government among the general populace.

 

Chris - I posted something similar, though I would suggest that it may be that military establishments in both the Soviet Union and the US had more in common than we think. Yes, Angleton may have been the mole he claimed he was searching for. It fits. But what to make out of it? He was no Communist. His fascist credentials are strong. What I would ask is was the KGB Communist? If CIA and KGB collaborated what conclusions can one draw other than confluence of interests? If one reads the private letters between Kennedy and Khrushchev one sees that both were interested in ending the 'Cold War' (in quotes because I don't believe it was a real ideological battle), and both feared their own military establishments, and knew that their were vested interests in continuing the open hostilities. Both were removed from office. Dulles represented these kind of transnational interests as well.

There are so many Russians wandering around this case. Are they still there? Are they, even now, blackmailing our government, politicians and Elite Guard with regard to the JFKA?

It becomes difficult to even detect some of these Russians since some use America names.

Bernard Barker's father was Russian

Ralph Paul was a Russian immigrant. 

This subject could use it's own thread.

Current poll results:

Nosenko was a false defector  --  2

Nosenko was kinda almost a false defector  --  1

 

Anyone else care to vote?

Update:  

I haven't exactly counted up the votes since I know it's something like

Yes, Nosenko was a genuine defector -- 50.5  votes

No, Nosenko was a false defector -- 2.5 votes

 

Anyone else have an opinion on this?

 

By the way --  Has anyone here actually read Tennent H. Bagley's  book Spy Wars?  (2007)

Okay then, how about his 37-page sequel, Ghosts of Spy Wars?  (2015)

http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/08850607.2014.962362

 

--  Tommy :sun

 

PS  I intended this as a poll thread, not as a discussion thread seein' as how there already are threads on Nosenko, Golitsyn, Angleton, etc.

So please, put your comments, if any, on one of those threads so as not to interrupt the "flow" of this here poll thread.

Thank you.  Thank you very much.

Pamela,

Thanks for the input.

My comment:  Maybe I'm wrong, but didn't Nosenko claim to have been in charge of a review of Oswald's case, and therefore privy to Oswald's complete KGB file, before he "defected" in January, 1964?

--  Tommy :sun

Don't recall if I replied specifically to this post or not earlier.  It is my thinking that Nosenko was told he had access to LHO's complete KGB file when that was not the case.  It was really a scenario of the Russian dolls (dolls within dolls).  There were others above him who were using him who DID have access to LHO's complete file.  Thus, Nosenko was a real defector but had been misled intentionally by KGB.  JJA should have figured this out instead of torturing him.  JJA was seriously flawed due to Philby's betrayal and lost his CI acumen imo and never got it back.

Yes, Pamela, you already have.

Intriguing theory btw.

Have you read Spy Wars or Ghosts of Spy Wars yet?

In them, Bagley (one of Nosenko's interrorgators) points out that Nosenko's answers changed so much over the years as to suggest that it wasn't just a matter of his KGB superiors' giving him bad information for him to unwittingly pass on to CIA, but that he was lying a lot and having a hard time keeping his lies straight.

--  Tommy :sun

Or put another way, CIA was asking him detailed, unexpected questions on things he'd already knowingly lied about in a general kind of way, and he had a hard time keeping those "secondary" answers straight during subsequent interrogations.
