VIDEO: The Church Committee

Recommended Posts

In 1975, the Senate Committee on Intelligence (also known as the

"Church Committee") investigated reports that the CIA was involved in

plots to murder foreign heads of state. The investigation was a result

of a series of published reports by columnist Jack Anderson that the

CIA and the US Mafia had conspired to kill Fidel Castro.

Shown is a memorable exchange between Richard Helms and Sen. Christopher Dodd over whether or not the CIA's supplying Rolando Cubela with an instument of murder constituted an "assassination plot".

Were the Kennedys trying to kill Fidel Castro, or was the CIA

operating on its own without Presidential approval ?

See what the Church Committee concluded.

Also, Geraldo Rivera's "Good Night America" first airing of the

Zapruder film is shown.
