Another Kennedy Assassination Conspiracy Theory: Lee Harvey Oswald Was Contracted for CIA Operation Three Months Before Killing, Reporter Claims

This one isn't about the assassination itself, though I'm sure there'll be a theory connecting it up. It's a claim about Lee Harvey Oswald working for the CIA to discredit pro-Castro protesters three months before he killed Kennedy.

Personally, I'd love to see the CIA even more discredited than it is already.

But... I dunno. We hear a lot of crap. I'm pretty sure I've heard this before. Or saw it before: I hate to admit I watched the Steven King series about time travel and the Kennedy assassination, but I did. And it's all about Oswald meeting with this alleged CIA controller about three months before the assassination.

The same sixty people have been peddling the same variatons of the same basic stories for the past sixty years.

By the way, don't bother watching the Steven King thing. It's like every other Steven King thing: It starts off mildly interesting, then you begin to suspect he has no idea where to go with the story, then he wastes your time as he tries pounding the typewriter into submission, trying to make it tell him where to go with the story, then he just sort of gives up and admits he doesn't really know how to end the story, and just ends the story.

The CIA holds documents that show presidential assassin Lee Harvey Oswald was involved in an intelligence operation before the assassination of John F. Kennedy, a prominent Kennedy assassination reporter alleged Tuesday.

"We're talking about smoking-gun proof of a CIA operation involving Lee Harvey Oswald," reporter Jefferson Morley said.

Morley claimed the CIA operation involving Oswald took place in the summer of 1963, three months before the assassination. The allegation from Morley, who has written extensively about the CIA in the 1960s, could shake up the history of the Kennedy assassination if it proves to be true.

I feel like Leonard Nimoy should be narrating this, with all these "could be's" and "might's."

Kennedy investigators have long sought to investigate the extent of Oswald's involvement with intelligence agencies, and whether that could reveal more about whether Oswald was the only person involved in Kennedy's death. Despite decades of investigations from Congress and independent inspectors, the CIA has never disclosed any involvement with Oswald.

"This is an extraordinarily serious claim, and it has profound implications for the official story," Morley said.

Morley claimed that Oswald, a former Marine who defected to the Soviet Union before returning to the United States as a supporter of Cuban communist leader Fidel Castro, was involved in a pre-assassination CIA operation meant to discredit American supporters of Castro. Morley's allegations focused on files created by now-deceased CIA agent George Joannides, who was involved with anti-Castro exile groups. Morley said 44 documents in Joannides's file are still being held by the CIA and could shed new light on the purported operation.

"No one outside of the CIA was any wiser," Morley said of the effort, which he said involved work to promote Oswald as an unhinged pro-Castro figure.

When they have something, they'll have something.
