HSCA commentary on Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations on the Performance of Intelligence Agencies in the Inevestigation of Assassination.

Blatantly critical of the FBI and CIA.

Early mention is made of Gelberto Lopez' flight to Cuba via Mexico, beginning on Nov. 23, 1963.


Mention made of:


LIFIRE - joint program with the Mexican security forces. LIFIRE obtained passenger manifests of all commercial flights, passport photographs of travelers to Cuba, and could sometimes even follow a passenger to the hotel with their surveillance truck. 

Giberto Lopez (Mar. 19, 1964)  is said to have been involved in the Kennedy Assassination

- March '64 report on Lopez " jibes fully" with that provided station by LITEMPO early December, 1963.

- Lopez' wife stated that Lopez suffered bouts of epilepsy, and had to be confined to Jackson State Hospital (crossed-out in Key West crossed-out).

           - assuming this is Jackson State Hospital, Mississippi. No such place in Key West.

-Lopez' FPCC activities

-- CIA provided no information on Lopez to the Warren Comission

- FBI provided one singe piece of Lopez information, regarding a check, to the Warren Comission
