Roselli's leaking of CIA-Mafia plots

Recommended Posts

I came across an interesting memorandum from the CIA- 2/11/72- concerning Johnny Roselli and the CIA /Mafia plots against Castro:

"The Agency was aware that Roselli intended to expose his participation in the plot should we not intervene on his behalf. The DCI decided to ignore his threats and take a calculated risk as to the consequence that may occur with the disclosure of this story."

Roselli was in prison in Seattle at the time, and was also facing deportation hearings. He was trying to strong arm the CIA into helping him. When they balked he spilled the beans.

Considering a few years later, Santo likely had him strangled and chopped up, Roselli came out on the raw end of the deal.
