Lee Harvey Oswald, the accused assassin of former president John F. Kennedy, had been under the CIA’s control, says James Petras, a retired professor at Binghamton University. “The CIA was involved for substantial period of time with the reputed assassin Oswald. The records have turned up that Oswald had been under the control of CIA agent (George) Joannides,” Petras told Press TV on Sunday.
Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 in Dallas, and five decades later the US government and the CIA have yet to disclose the documents pertaining to the incident.
Jefferson Morley, a former Washington Post reporter, is currently suing the CIA to release a file containing about 300 pages on Joannides, whom he thinks may have had contact with Oswald prior to the assassination. Joannides served as Langley’s liaison for Kennedy’s assassination investigation in the 70s.
“Any details on CIA involvement with Oswald would obviously change the whole nature of the post-assassination investigation,” Petras said.
“The question of CIA involvement in association with Oswald raises a further question about the role of spying agencies in the United States particularly ones implicated in assassination plots,”
