Two Key Findings that Show the CIA Redacted Potential Smoking Gun from JFK Files

The U.S. government’s last-minute announcement that President Trump has chosen to only release some of the remaining classified documents on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy, has raised the question of what the government is leaving out, and why.

Two of the most notable indications can be found in the latest trove of documents that was released Thursday night. One document detailed the deposition of former 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 crucial question from commission member David Belin.

“I believe so,” Helms replied.

“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 asked.

The released documents end at this point, failing to answer one of the most asked questions in the entire JFK conspiracy.

While the newly released documents indicate that the FBI had contact with suspect Lee Harvey Oswald before the shooting that killed Kennedy, this particular document does not include Helms’ answer on whether Oswald had any ties to the CIA. This raises questions about what was included in Helms’ answer that would have made the government keep it redacted for “national security” purposes.

In one document labeled “Top Secret,” the identification form claims that it includes a 33-page transcript from a hearing on July 17, 1975, with a testimony from Richard Bissell. The former CIA agent was appointed as the CIA’s Deputy Director of Plans in 1958, which reportedly gave him control over half of the CIA’s budget, and over the CIA’s Black Operations. Bissell’s chief focus was a plan to overthrow Cuba’s Fidel Castro.
