JFK Will Not Die

As Jameske noted in his news earlier in the week, Federal Court judges have queried the CIA’s rationale for withholding records which might be pertinent to the assassination of John F. Kennedy:

Three appellate judges probed for explanations of the agency’s rationale for withholding records concerning a deceased undercover CIA officer named George Joannides whose role in the events of 1963 remains unexplained.

For the past three and a half years, CIA has blocked the release of the Joannides files, denying my Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and spurning scholarly appeals for full disclosure. At stake is the viability of the 1992 JFK Assassination Records Act, which mandates the immediate review, and release of all government records related to Kennedy’s murder in Dallas on November 22, 1963. One of the strongest open government measures ever enacted, the future of the JFK Act is now in question as the CIA seeks judicial permission to defy its provisions…

…Joannides served as the chief of psychological warfare operations in the Agency’s Miami station at the time of Kennedy’s assassination. Using the alias “Howard,” he was the case officer for a Cuban exile group whose members had repeated contact with accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in August 1963 — rendering any records of Joannides’ secret operations at that time potentially relevant to the JFK assassination story.
