Summary:

Fifteen years after the assassination of John F. Kennedy, the Central Intelligence Agency appointed George E. Joannides liaison to the House Select Committee on Assassinations – but concealed the fact that Joannides had been the CIA case officer who oversaw a CIA-funded anti-Castro Cuban group which had clashed publicly with Lee Harvey Oswald soon before the shooting.

Notes:

Jefferson Morley, a Washington, D.C. researcher and author, won a six-year FOIA lawsuit against the CIA (and weathered the agency’s appeal) for the partial release of the files.
