Angleton 1974-75 | perjury in Church Committee testimony


Recommended Posts

Came across this article this evening, had some stuff in it that was new to me. Good piece. 

The mystery of disgraced CIA spymaster James Angleton’s “retirement”

This well-documented and sourced piece describes how James Angleton was immediately re-hired by the CIA as a contractor--at the same pay rate he received as chief of CI--upon his 1974 termination and that he continued working there for about a year, well into the fall of 1975.

Angleton testified before the Church Committee in 1975 a few times and it's clear now that he committed perjury when he erroneously claimed under oath that he had left the agency in December of 1974.

He failed to acknowledge or even recognize that he worked from January of '75 through September of '75 at CIA, where "all operational issues remained solely the preserve of Angleton" during that period.

Given that JJA is one of the chief suspects in the JFK assassination and subsequent cover-up I thought worth posting here for those with an interest.

Nice post. You can read organizational charts, but then there is the way things really get done...
