Oh what a tangled web is weaved by our government. How many believed/believes the government and the so-called official Commission that covered the investigation? At least the outcome that was reported. One only has to look at the murder investigation of Vince Foster, the close friend of Hillary Clinton who was found “dead by Suicide” in Fort Marcy Park.
A special House committee in 1978 concluded “on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy.”
The conclusions of the investigations were arrived at in good faith, but presented in a fashion that was too definitive.
The Secret Service was deficient in the performance of its duties.
The Secret Service possessed information that was not properly analyzed, investigated or used by the Secret Service in connection with the President’s trip to Dallas; in addition, Secret Service agents in the motorcade were inadequately prepared to protect the President from a sniper.
The responsibility of the Secret Service to investigate the assassination was terminated when the Federal Bureau of Investigation assumed primary investigative responsibility.
An independent body, which folded in 1998, was headed by a federal judge and empowered to collect classified information from across the government that might have bearing on Kennedy’s murder and make public as much as possible after consulting with the agencies where the intelligence originated. It also had legal authority to overrule recalcitrant agencies.
President Joe Biden has once again delayed the public release of thousands of government secrets that might shed light on the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
“Temporary continued postponement is necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations that is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in immediate disclosure,” Biden wrote in a presidential memorandum late Friday.
That pretty much covers the government and all its entities.
Researchers are keenly interested in the personnel file of the late George Joannides, a career CIA intelligence operative who staffers on the House investigation in the late 1970s believe lied to Congress about what he knew about a CIA-backed exile group that had ties to Oswald.
More on the shadowy figure of George Joannides
JFK Facts reports:
Joannides, now deceased, was an undercover CIA officer, whose actions provides strong evidence that certain Agency personnel manipulated Lee Harvey Oswald for propaganda purposes before and after President Kennedy was shot dead in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
George Joannides, chief of CIA covert operations in Miami in 1963, also had a residence in New Orleans.
Declassified CIA records show that Joannides obstructed two official JFK investigations by not disclosing what he knew about contacts between his Cuban agents and Kennedy’s accused killer. Most records of his activities in the summer of 1963 are still classified.
Conspiratorial speculation aside, his story demonstrates the CIA is capable of keeping JFK assassination secrets, even 50 years later.
There is no evidence Joannides was involved in a plot to kill the president. He was not a “rogue officer.” As recipient of the agency’s Career Intelligence Medal, he retired from the CIA in 1981 with the esteem of colleagues, family, and friends. Whatever he did in 1963, he did at the behest of his superiors.
His story continues to emerge. In a federal court filing earlier this month, the CIA acknowledged for the first time that Joannides maintained a residence in New Orleans during his tenure running secret anti-Castro operations in Miami 1962-64. Oswald lived in New Orleans from April to September 1963.
To this day, the CIA will not disclose the nature or purpose of Joannides’s residence in New Orleans — for reasons of “national security.”

What’s still hidden?
Portions of more than 15,000 records that have been released remain blacked out, in some cases a single word but in others nearly the entire document, according to the National Archives.
The records were collected by the Assassination Records Review Board, which was established by Congress in the 1992 JFK Records Act.
The independent body, which folded in 1998, was headed by a federal judge and empowered to collect classified information from across the government that might have bearing on Kennedy’s murder and make public as much as possible after consulting with the agencies where the intelligence originated. It also had legal authority to overrule recalcitrant agencies.
And for Vince Foster? Let me know if this sounds familiar. Deputy White House counsel Vince Foster was found dead in Fort Marcy Park off the George Washington Parkway in Virginia, outside Washington, D.C., on July 20, 1993. His death was ruled a suicide by five official investigations, but remains a subject of conspiracy theories.
For more on Vince Foster from an earlier post if you want a real conspiracy theory. From Bunkerville, July 3,2018:
This is the only time in history that an Independent Counsel was ordered to include evidence of a cover-up by his own investigators in his own Report.
Search Vince Foster in the search bar located at the top right side of this page for additional posts on the topic. I had spent a number of months reading all of the primary documents available and it is mind blowing..
We know about the JFK investigation. We were suppose to get the report released by now after many years but now they have extended the time. We know the drill don’t we?
The best of the swamp today.
