The U.S. government’s last-minute announcement that President Trump has decided to only let go some of the remaining classified documents on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy, has brought up the issue of what the government is leaving out, and why.
Two of the most significant clues can be discovered in the latest trove of documents that was released Thursday evening. One document detailed the deposition of ex – CIA Director Richard Helms, who was “called for examination by Counsel for Commission on CIA Activities” on April 23, 1975. The document ends with a vital question from commission member David Belin.
“Well, now, the final area of my internal investigation relates to charges that the CIA was in some way conspiratorially involved with the assassination of President Kennedy,” Belin stated. “During the time of the Warren Commission, you were Deputy Director of Plans, is that correct?”
“I believe so,” Helms answered.
“Is there any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy, which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent…” Belin inquired.
The released documents end here, unable to answer one of the most sought after questions in the whole JFK conspiracy.
While the newly released documents suggest that the FBI had contact with suspect Lee Harvey Oswald before the shooting that killed Kennedy, this specific document does not incorporate Helms’ answer on whether Oswald had any connections to the CIA. This raises questions about what was enclosed in Helms’ answer that would have made the government keep it redacted for “national security” reasons.
In one document tagged “Top Secret,” the identification form claims that it includes a 33-page transcript from a hearing on July 17, 1975, with a account from Richard Bissell. The ex – CIA agent was appointed as the CIA’s Deputy Director of Plans in 1958, which supposedly gave him control over half of the CIA’s budget, and over the CIA’s Black Operations. Bissell’s chief target was a plan to overthrow Cuba’s Fidel Castro.
The starting page of the document claims the transcript covers topics such as the effort to overthrow Castro with the failed Bay of Pigs invasion; ex – CIA Director Allen Dulles and ex – President Eisenhower; the overthrow of Dominican Republic President Rafael Trujillo; the ZR/Rifle Project and CIA agent Arnold Silver; ex – CIA Director John A. McCone; Mafia leader Sam Giancana; CIA and FBI recruit Robert Maheu; and the Department of Justice.
The transcript of Bissell’s responses to inquiries on any of the topics listed above would be extremely telling with regards to the inner workings of the CIA and the activities that led up to, and happened after the assassination of President Kennedy. Nevertheless, the document that was unveiled consists of 3 pages, and only 1 page has text from the transcript.
The only page of text has inquiries for Bissell such as “Now, Mr. Bissell, we went over the notes in the other room, didn’t we?” to which Bissell replied, “Correct.” The subject of the page seems to be on the actions of Bill Harvey, a CIA agent who played a essential role in Operation Mongoose, the agency’s effort to overthrow Castro after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion.
Mr. Schwarz: “All right. Now, in light of that document … does that have any effect upon your prior testimony that you had no reason to question Mr. Harvey’s statement at the occasion you asked him to set up the capability you said that the White House had twice urged you to do so?”
Mr. Bissell: “Yes. I think these dates do call that into question, because accepting these dates, which are Mr. Harvey’s own notations, it is clear that I had given him at least some exposure to that assignment at the end of January, just at the…”
The document finishes there, leaving the general public to question exactly where the other 30 pages of the transcript are, why they were not revealed, and if they will ever be revealed later on.
While the documents do not feature crucial answers to inquiries about the assassination of President Kennedy, they do contain several threatening revelations about the CIA, demonstrating that the agency openly funded terrorism and worked with the mafia to carry out a variety of assassinations. WikiLeaks has offered a $100,000 reward for the full release of the documents.
