Jim Hargrove Posted August 4, 2017 Share Posted August 4, 2017 Mathias, I agree with most of what you say above, and I'll try to get to some of your other points ASAP, but I wanted to point this out right away.... When you referred to "a disgruntled ex-employee" I assume you are referring to James Wilcott. Of course, the fact that he said he was told by other CIA employees that he had himself paid the putative assassin of JFK might make an ex-CIA fellow a bit disgruntled, eh? But Wilcott is hardly alone in accusing the Agency of employing the alleged assassin. From HarveyandLee.net: In 1996 former Deputy Counsel for the House Select Committee on Assassinations Robert Tanenbaum testified at the ARRB hearing in Los Angeles by saying, "the Attorney General of Texas, Henry Wade the District Attorney and Leon Jaworsky counsel to the Attorney General, on the transcript spoke to the Chief Justice and said in substance, as I recall, that they had information from unimpeachable sources that Lee Harvey Oswald was a contract employee of the CIA and the FBI." Richard Sprague, chief counsel to the U.S. House Select Committee on Assassinations said that "if he had it to do over again, he would begin his investigation of the Kennedy assassination by probing 'Oswald's ties to the Central Intelligence Agency.'" Sen. Richard Schweiker said, "We do know Oswald had intelligence connections. Everywhere you look with him, there're fingerprints of intelligence." CIA Agent Donald Norton said, "Oswald was with the CIA....' Former CIA agent Joseph Newbrough said, "Oswald was an agent for the CIA and acting under orders." CIA employee Donald Deneslya read reports of a CIA agent who had worked at a radio factory in Minsk and returned to the US with a Russian wife and child--that agent could only have been Oswald. Marvin Watson, an adviser to President Lyndon Johnson, said that Johnson had told him that he was convinced that there was a plot in connection with the assassination. Watson said the President felt the CIA had something to do with this plot. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
