Edgar Hoover dated September 1, 1964, responding to a CIA question whether Kostikov ever worked for FBI Department 13. Hoover answered, no. Hoover did not mention Lee Harvey Oswald at any time in his reply. The CIA, however, added a NOTE at the end, in which they were still trying to figure out (even in 1964) whether LHO had met Kostikov during his Mexico City trip in 1963. The CIA note further discloses that the CIA was very worried about Kostikov from earlier in the year in 1963, as to his possible status with the KGB or other Intelligence communities, and they had asked the FBI for help with the Kostikov status as early as 5/31/1963. Here it is, 1964, and the CIA was still unsure. This helps to explain why, even during LHO's Mexico City trip, the CIA was investigating Kostikov as very suspicious. Yet the CIA didn't ask Hoover about the connection of Kostikov with LHO -- which is proved by the fact that Hoover didn't mention it. That suspicion was a CIA Mole-Hunt secret. Only people close to the Mole would speak about it. That's why I strongly suspect FBI James Hosty of participation with the Mole. BTW, Chris, I truly appreciate the fact that you are sharing all these CIA and FBI documents, proving that James Hosty made up all that stuff about an LHO-Kostikov connection. There are no supporting CIA or FBI documents for Hosty. IMHO, James Hosty attempts to deceive the reader in his 1996 book, Assignment Oswald. If anybody publishes authentic CIA or FBI documentation of a Kostikov-Oswald connection, I'll publicly reverse my opinion -- but not otherwise.
