From latest files: FPCC Co-founder Turned CIA in ‘62

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The FPCC was co-founded by a future CIA agent? We already know the FBI had an informant at the top of the organization in ‘63. Were there any actual Castro supporters running it? 

And the supposed pro-Castro leftist turned spook, Richard Gibson, is still alive at 87.

Jefferson Morley has the goods here:

It gets stranger... from Spartacus:

“[Gibson] stated that it was his personal opinion that it would be much more effective to use the FPCC as a cover for intelligence and counter-intelligence purposes...”

http://spartacus-educational.com/JFKfairplay.htm

Isn’t that what CTers have maintained all along regarding Oswald’s interaction with the ‘subversive grassroots group’ - the FPCC was more like a CIA and FBI front group and commie honey pot?

And somehow the future alleged assassin walks across the FPCC’s path and also the CIA-backed DRE within weeks of each other. But of course nobody knew him or paid him any mind.

 Just another former Marine defector/traitor interacting with groups secretly guided/infiltrated by US intel  agencies completely by chance and yet also completely unmolested.

Waiting for MSM to put this on the nightly news.... jk

FPCC began as directed by Castro for we of the 26th Of July Movement members to join this

new organization as it would assist and defend the 'New Cuba'. At that time in 1960 I had just

returned from meeting with the Cuban Revolutionary Government, and was appointed Secretary

of FPCC just forming in Chicago. At the outset Richard Gibson and Robert Taber, founders of

FPCC appeared at organizational meeting with Richard Criley, John Rosen, I and other leading

officers. It was during those first few months that I learned Criley and Rosen  were old line

Communist party members..........

The special interest today, within the general field of Communist activity, is the field of Communist youth activity, and the committee will seek information particularly, from the witness today, about the Fair Play for Cuba Committee.

Our witness is Richard Gibson.
Senator Dodd. Raise your right hand.

HEARINGS BEFORE THE SUBCOMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE THE ADMINISTEATION OF THE INTERNAL SECURITY ACT AND OTHER INTERNALISECURITY LAWS OP THE COMMITTEE ON THE JUDICIARY UNITED STATES SENATE EIGHTY-SEVENTH CONGRESS FIRST SESSION APRIL 29, MAY 5, OCTOBER 10, 1960 TOGETHER WITH HEARING HELD JANUARY 10, 1961

Mr. Sourwine. You have been a member of the India delegation to the United Nations?
Miss Grant. I would like to decline to answer that question on the following grounds: Lack of legislative purpose, lack of committee jurisdiction, lack of pertinency, and on the basis of my rights under the first amendment and on the basis of my rights and privileges under the fifth amendment.
Senator Dodd. Well, now, I would order you to answer except that you have claimed rights under the fifth amendment and the first FAIR PLAY FOR CUBA COMMITTEE 69 amendment. Do you actually feel that if you answered this question yes or no, you might incriminate yourself or degrade yourself?
Miss Grant. I have the same answer.


Mr. SouRwiNE. Miss Grant, is it true that when you visited Moscow in 1957, you marched in the Lenin Stadium with the American Youth delegation, led by Jacob Rosen, who dipped the American flag to Khrushchev?
Miss Grant. I decline to answer on the grounds previously stated

Mr. S. Is not Mr. Rosen connected with the Fair Play for Cuba Committee ?
Mr. Gibson. On the basis of my rights under the first and fifth amendments, I must decline to answer.

Criley does not appear in the text of these hearings...  neither does Mr. Dean.

Thanks David, yet the  NARA entry lists the document as running 191 pages.

(My apologies for my copy-pastes of snippets of these PDF's. I have no idea how they look on anything other than my iPad) here is left side of that entry, cut off in my previous post, indicating 191 pages. The Black Vault also shows 191 pages in their clickable 3000 + page index.

Here is the link to the Archives page, the entry is the third one down as my device resolves the URL.

Hi Paz, that first link is a very long set of documents. Can you tell us anything about it or draw our attention to anything in that document?

****edit.. the three links amount to over 700 pages. Can your help us focus as we read them?

I've found that many of the page counts are wrong...

And to that extent.. 200 page docs are 3....

Thanks David, I was just double-checking myself. This morning, that PDF link went to an archives link that said" Document not found", and I tried it several times and in different forms. It definitely changed since this morning. Also, I have found that page counts on these entries to be accurate, until now. To be sure, those links bring me to the same document that you posted (thanks again) which is 11  pages.

In fact, I still have a "page not found" window open from this morning, with that URL in the Navigation pane. I took a screen shot.

Reopenkennedycase were on this as well late last year sometime. Fascinating study:

http://reopenkennedycase.forumotion.net/t1680-was-the-fpcc-cia-operation-under-the-direction-of-gibson

May I add that this seems to be pretty significant news (aside from the fact that they outed the guy....strange as all hell).....?

I thought the same thing - significant news.

I’d like to know who wasn’t connected with US intelligence among LHO’s interactions in ‘63?

This is really interesting.

Newman hinted in his book Oswald and the CIA that Gibson may have been a CIA informant, but he thought it was a bit later in time, after the assassination. But in that book, he clearly suggests that the scapegoating of Oswald had two purposes, the other being to destroy the FPCC.

But it looks like Hopley and Olstead are going to try and make a quantum leap with the FPCC. I have to say that Olmstead is a meticulous researcher.  He did some really bracing work in exposing  the fingerprint evidence at the Wecht Conference in 2003.

My understanding was that the FPCC was an FBI infiltrated and directed thing... in the US...  CIA is supposed to keep their hands off domestic stuff...  ;)

https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32389829.pdf

This is Whitten asking whether to speak with FBI about Oswald and GIDSON since both were FPCC...  So this is the CIA not using his crypt and not sanitizing his name from the doc...  that seems strange...

In the [   ]  from the newly un-redacted version is INANITION (?)
