Dear Dr. Weinstein,

We the undersigned are published authors on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy and former members of the Assassination Records Review Board. We call on you to resolve doubts the JFK Assassination Records Act of 1992 is being adequately enforced. Those doubts are raised by Judge Richard Leon’s recent dismissal of the lawsuit, Morley v. CIA, which seeks to obtain the records of deceased CIA officer George Joannides.

The central issue in Morley v. CIA is the records Joannides generated in the summer of 1963 when he serving as the Chief of the Psychological Warfare branch of the CIA’s Miami station. We called for release of these records in an open letter published in the New York Review of Books in August 2005. Judge Leon’s ruling ignores the consensus of JFK authors that the material is relevant to the story of Kennedy’s assassination.

The court’s decision ignores the CIA’s own records which demonstrate that Joannides had a professional responsibility to report on contacts in August 1963 between Lee Harvey Oswald and members of the Cuban Student Directorate (DRE). The group’s New Orleans chapter publicly called for a congressional investigation of Oswald in August 1963. After the assassination, the DRE took the lead in identifying Oswald as a pro-Castro activist. At the time, Joannides was secretly guiding and monitoring the group’s leadership in Miami and providing them up to $25,000 a month.

Judge Leon’s decision, handed down on September 29, also ignores Joannides’ subsequent cover-up of his knowledge of Oswald. Joannides did not disclose his financial relationship with Oswald’s antagonists to the Warren Commission. In 1978, the Agency called Joannides out retirement to serve as liaison to the House Select Committee on Assassination. He did not disclose his role in the events of 1963. His stonewalling effectively compromised the HSCA investigation.

Judge Leon’s decision serves to hide from public view CIA records that would shed light on what a decorated undercover officer learned of Oswald before Kennedy was killed and why he covered up what he knew afterwards.

We urge you to take action to reverse the corrosive effects that this decision would have on public confidence in the JFK Assassination Records Act and in the National Archives.

We recommend a simple remedy. Marilyn Dorn, the CIA’s director of information review, acknowledged for the first time in the course of the lawsuit that the Agency has files on Joannides’ operational activities. In a sworn statement submitted to the court, Dorn said the Agency will not disclose whether these files are related to Kennedy’s assassination.

“I have ... determined that any operational files that would likely contain information responsive to Plaintiff’s FOIA request do, in fact, satisfy the definition of operational files set forth in the CIA Information Act,” Dorn stated. “Because these operational files are exempt [from disclosure], the CIA was not obligated to search them for information responsive to Plaintiff’s request.”

We submit that the CIA’s obtuse posture is inconsistent with the JFK Assassination Records Act. The Act, passed unanimously by Congress in 1992, mandates that all U.S. government agencies are obligated to identify all JFK assassination records and make them available for review and release.

We note the responsibility of the National Archivist to ensure that newly-identified JFK assassination records are incorporated into the JFK Collection at NARA.

We remind you of the working definition of “assassination-related records,” as established by the Assassination Records Review Board between 1994 and 1998. It is worth noting that the CIA failed to disclose to the ARRB the existence of the operational records to which Dorn refers. The Board and its staff never had an opportunity to determine whether the Joannides files qualified as JFK records or not.

We request that the Archives designate a qualified independent expert to review all of the operational files identified by Marilyn Dorn to see whether any of them concern George Joannides’ activities in 1963, 1964 and 1978, as they related to the DRE, Oswald and Kennedy’s assassination. Any JFK-related records should be promptly reviewed and released, with the exception of names of living intelligence sources and genuinely sensitive national security information.

The importance of JFK’s assassination to our nation and its history remains undiminished. With it unanimous approval of the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Act, the Congress sent a message that the spirit of the law requires full disclosure on this key history event. That is the imperative and we urge you to act on it.

The above should provide something of a 'litmus test' for the post-midterm Republican 'direct hit in the bunker,' if you will.

If inaction is the end result i.e more of the same, it will be tempting to think, "everything changes everything has stayed the same." [paraphrasing]

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/....do?docId=14253

Last week I got to wondering if Cuban exiles, Jean Souetre of the OAS, and E. Howard Hunt were in Madrid at the same time.

There are several CIA documents about Souetre being in Madrid trying to get CIA backing for a coup against DeGaulle.

Did they meet?

Thank's Steve for posting that; it is indeed an interesting question, and it, [the document info] has been added to the list.

Joannides crossing Elm Street?

manonelm.jpg

It seems Joannides is discussed in a new book The Mystique of Conspiracy. According to Martin Shackleford, this book first appeared in 1978. If so, this must be an updated version.

From the publisher:

"The Mystique of Conspiracy delves into the mystery surrounding the JFK assassination. It focuses mainly on anti-Castro Cuban exiles and their relationship with the CIA, but it also offers an excellent framework to gauge the "plausibility" of any conspiracy theory. Unique to this work is the offer included at the back of the book to involve the reader in an online exchange with the author. The author, an online Professor of criminal justice at the University of Phoenix, will guide the reader/student into formulating his or her own credible approach to solving the nagging mystery behind the JFK assassination (or any conspiracy theory they are interested in). Also compelling is the Foreword and personal letters included in the Appendix written to the author in 1978 by David Atlee Phillips, former CIA Western Hemisphere Division Chief. Mr. Phillips passed away in 1988, but many have tried to link him directly to a CIA plot to assassinate JFK utilizing anti-Castro Cuban exiles. A new name in the annals of the JFK assassination is CIA covert operative George Joannides. Mr. Joannides passed away in 1999, but his role in directing a group of anti-Castro Cuban exiles who had contact with the assassin in New Orleans several months before the assassination has never been made public up until now. As recent as 2005 the CIA went to court and blocked the release of any documents on George Joannides. David Atlee Phillips was Mr. Joannides' supervisor in the CIA. This book will be of interest to anyone interested in the "mystique" surrounding conspiracy theories, whether it is JFK, RFK, MLK, Princess Diana, 9/11 or Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, killed in London by radioactive polonium 210. There is a common thread that runs through them all. The author will reveal what that is."

Jeff Morley's latest account of his struggle to get the George Joannides file released:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jefferson-mo...-j_b_69414.html

The ARRB established George Joannides' relevance to the JFK historical record in 1998 when it discovered and declassified five fitness reports from his personnel file. Those records revealed for the first time that Joannides had served as the chief of Psychological Warfare branch in the CIA's Miami station in 1963. He arrived in Miami in 1962 under U.S. Army cover, according to recently declassified records.

At the time of Kennedy's assassination his duties included handling the CIA's contacts with a militant Cuban exile group called the Cuban Student Directorate, known by its Spanish acronym, DRE. In CIA cables, the group was known by the codename AMSPELL.

JFK scholars consider documents relating to the DRE to be relevant to the history of events in Dallas. A series of encounters between DRE members and Lee Harvey Oswald in August 1963 have long provoked investigative interest and debate.

Oswald approached the DRE's delegation in New Orleans and offered to train guerrillas to fight the Castro government. He was rebuffed. When DRE members saw Oswald handing out pro-Castro leaflets a few days later an altercation ensued that ended with the arrest of all the participants. A week after that, the DRE's spokesman in New Orleans debated the Cuba issue with Oswald on a radio program. After these encounters, the DRE issued a press release calling for a congressional investigation of the pro-Castro activities of the then-obscure Oswald.

The CIA was passing money to the DRE leaders at the time, according to an agency memo dated April 1963, found in the JFK Library in Boston. The document shows that the Agency gave the Miami-based group $250,000 a year -- the equivalent of about $1.5 million annually in 2007 dollars.

The secret CIA files on Joannides may shed new light on what, if anything, Joannides and other CIA officers in anti-Castro operations knew about Oswald's activities and contacts before Kennedy was killed.

In a July 2003 FOIA request, I asked for all records on Joannides' contacts with and responsibilities for the DRE in 1962-64, as well as records on his stint as liaison to the congressional investigation in 1978. In the course of the lawsuit, the CIA admitted the existence of 33 still-secret documents in Joannides' administrative file. The CIA refuses to release them in any form, claiming that the release of even a single word would harm national security or violate someone's privacy. Those records have been "denied in full."

The CIA denies any obligation to release JFK-related documents in the Joannides files. "The JFK Assassination Records Act has no applicability" to a FOIA request, according to a brief filed by the agency this summer.

The agency also asserts that its operational files are exempt from being searched under the terms of the 1984 CIA Information Act -- even though the JFK Records Act supersedes that law and contains no exemption for the searching of operational files.

"The JFK statute is quite clear," stated Anna Nelson, a former ARRB member and a professor at American University. "Every agency had to search every file system for records relating to the JFK assassination. Nothing in the statute excludes operational files. Furthermore, the board guidelines are clear that files like the Joannides file are a part of the assassination record. So the CIA is legally bound to search those files and to report on what they found, even if the documents aren't released."

The article The Man Who Did Not Talk includes the following:

http://www.playboy.com/magazine/features/jfk/jfk-page02.html

Perhaps the single most intriguing story to emerge from the JFK files concerns a career CIA officer named George Joannides. He died in 1990 at age 67, taking his JFK secrets to the grave in suburban Washington. His role in the events leading up to Kennedy's death and its confused investigatory aftermath goes utterly unmentioned in the vast literature of JFK's assassination. Vincent Bugliosi's otherwise impressive 1,600 page book debunking every JFK conspiracy theory known to man mentions him only in an inaccurate footnote. In 1998, the Agency declassified a handful of annual personnel evaluations that revealed Joannides was involved in the JFK assassination story, both before and after the event.

In November 1963, Joannides was serving as the chief of psychological warfare operations in the CIA's Miami station. The purpose of psychological warfare, as authorized by U.S. policymakers, was to confuse and confound the government of Fidel Castro, so to hasten its replacement by a government more congenial to Washington. The first revelation was that Joannides had agents in a leading Cuban student exile group, an operation code-named AMSPELL in CIA files. These agents had a series of close encounters with Oswald three months before JFK was killed.

The second revelation was that the CIA's Miami assets helped shape the public's understanding of Kennedy's assassination by identifying the suspected assassin as a Castro supporter right from the start.

The third revelation, the one that is most shocking, is that when Congress reopened the JFK probe in 1978, Joannides served as the CIA's liaison to the investigators. His job was to provide files and information to the House Select Committee on Assassinations. But far from being a helpful source and conduit, Joannides stonewalled. He did not disclose his role in the events of 1963, even when asked direct questions about the AMSPELL operation he handled.

When the story of the Joannides file emerged, former HSCA chief counsel G. Robert Blakey was stunned by the audacity of Joannides's deception. Blakey, a former federal prosecutor, thought the Agency had cooperated with Congress's effort to look into JFK's murder. Twenty-three years later he learned that the CIA bureaucrat ostensibly assisting his staff was actually a material witness in the investigation. "The Agency set me up," reported the Washington Post.

Blakey, now a law professor at Notre Dame, says Joannides's actions were "little short of outrageous. You could make a prima facie case that it amounted to obstruction of Congress, which is a felony."

Blakey has long argued that organized crime figures orchestrated Kennedy's assassination. The revelation of Joannides's unknown role has given him second thoughts about the CIA's credibility.

"You can't really infer from the Joannides story that they [the CIA] did it," he says. "Maybe he was hiding something that is not complicitous in a plot but merely embarrassing. It certainly undermines everything that they have said about JFK's assassination."

For some reason, that is a bad link.

It should be http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...amp;relPageId=1

Steve Thomas

That would be incorrect, at least for me. I can click on the link and it pulls up immediately. At any rate the document is dated September 1, 1963

RIF 104-10110-10544

TITLE CUBAN EXILES ACTIVITIES IN SPAIN

SUBJECT CUBAN EXILES

The "To" & "From" fields on the cover sheet are blank.....there is also no indication who specifically wrote this document, but since it is in the CIA Segregated Collection.......

The document reads as follows:

1. I recieved a letter dated 1 September 1963 from Angel Solano, a Cuban exile who was formerly active in Anti-Castro activities in the US, Solano went to Spain around 1961 and

is currently a movie actor.

2. In his letter, Solano wrote:

"Some of the DRE boys were here a couple of months ago looking for [illegible probably spanish translation for money], but people are rather cured of that baloney and I do not think they got over a thousand bucks all together. Nobody believes nobody anymore and I cannot say I blame them. Former President Carlos Prio was here last week and "coincided" with my friend General Batista in Madrid. There is a rumor that an interview took place but frankly I don't know and care less.

END

Angel Solano is mentioned, I believe in the book Sons & Brothers [Richard Mahoney 1999] page 75 as being associated with Santo Trafficante, if I am not mistaken.....Not to say I told you so, but months and months ago, I mentioned that Madrid was an important city in the JFK saga, a statement that was pretty much ignored as most of my posts usually are.....Individuals associated with Madrid in the JFK saga, include

Albert Osborne aka John Howard Bowen,

Generalissimo Francisco Franco

Lt. Gen. Charles Willoughby

Jose Solis Ruiz [Franco cabinet member]

In 1963 according to Dick Russell, Willoughby wrote two letters [dated September 1 and September 21, 1963] to Colonel Charles Thourot Pichel, who had past Nazi-associations and was a member of the Shickshinny Knights of Malta, in the letter Willoughby wrote of his upcoming European trip: "I will see Franco and Salazar, It is all arranged.

John,

Members might be interested in this document that proves that George Joannides was at JMWAVE at the time of the assassination of JFK.

I was looking at George Joannides fitness reports in the Miscellaneous CIA Series on the Mary Farrell Foundation web site.

There are several of them, and there are some that he signed as the employee being reviewed as aka Walter D. Newby.

If you run the name Walter D. Newby in the search function, you come up with several hits of Walter D. Newby being introduced in late 1962 as the new case officer of AMSPELL.

Peter wrote (quoting Morley?):

In my admittedly subjective view, the JFK Records Act is being slowly repealed by CIA fiat.

No reason for a slow repeal. My reading of the Court of appeals opinion is that the courts have determined that the JFK Records Act is no longer in effect and that release of assassination documents are now governed by the much more restrictive provisions of the FOIA. I think Atty Lesar would agree that this is where matters now stand.

The court essentially said the Records Act expired when the ARRB closed shop per the statutory limitation on its existence. The solution would be for Congress to amend the law so it still controls even if the release of records is now controlled by the courts rather than the ARRB or a similar body.
