Don't forget Dirty Dick Helms'  other smart aleck comment, "Well we could put them up at the Hilton."

How anyone could joke about putting a guy through almost three years of isolation and torture, that to me epitomizes what the Old Boys Network was all about.

Unfortunately, it's not old-school stuff. Corruption leads to more serious criminality. I'd like to think I wouldn't do such things to save my skin, but I know that stating that I would not do it is meaningless until I've been tested. 

There is no way to avoid the slippery-slope to sadism and evil unless one disavows corruption personally and speaks-out and acts when one sees it.

If one goes back to the beginnings of the CIA mail opening operations in New York (1950's) two names that come up in this story as well as the assassination, Angelton and Helms.  This is the same time that Oswald is writing letters to the Socialist Workers Party but as is pointed out in "Oswald and the CIA" no case file is opened on Oswald (that we are aware of).

I suggest that it is possible that both Helms and Angelton became aware of Oswald at that time.  If that were to be true....it is Helm's that seems to have continuously followed Oswald, especially after he returned from Russia before the assassination and I suggest that it is Angelton that wanted to know why.  

Nosenko is just one more key to unlocking the assassination story.

P.S.  John J. McCloy missed a Warren Commission meeting to be at the Nuclear Arms meeting when Nosenko defected.
