FTR #47 Update on the JFK Assassination

Lis­ten now: Side 1 | Side 2 | Side 3 | Side 4

The assas­si­na­tion of Pres­i­dent Kennedy is a main focal point of Mr. Emory’s research. This series updates a num­ber of aspects of the inves­ti­ga­tion into that crime. In addi­tion to dis­cussing a for­mer CIA oper­a­tive’s alle­ga­tions that ele­ments of the Agency were involved in the assas­si­na­tion, the pro­grams high­light the mys­te­ri­ous life and death of Richard Case Nag­ell, a U.S. intel­li­gence oper­a­tive, who main­tains that he was assigned to kill Lee Har­vey Oswald and pre­vent the assas­si­na­tion from going for­ward. Nag­ell died just before being inter­viewed by the Assas­si­na­tion Records Review Board con­cern­ing his alleged role in the plot. Nag­ell con­tends that fas­cist ele­ments in the U.S. nation­al secu­ri­ty estab­lish­ment killed Kennedy and that he (Nag­ell) was assigned by a KGB offi­cer to assas­si­nate Oswald. Nag­ell con­tends that his “con­trol” was part of a KGB oper­a­tion that had infil­trat­ed the CIA. Nag­ell also con­tend­ed that Oswald may very well have been “dan­gled” in front of the Sovi­ets for the pur­pose of iden­ti­fy­ing KGB ele­ments infil­trat­ing the CIA’s U‑2 spy plane pro­gram. The series also high­lights U.S. intel­li­gence’s inter­est in (and attempts to destroy) the Fair Play for Cuba Com­mit­tee. Oswald was the only mem­ber of that orga­ni­za­tion’s New Orleans chap­ter. The fourth seg­ment con­tains a tape of Oswald’s inter­view on WDSU in New Orleans (arranged by the Infor­ma­tion Coun­cil for the Amer­i­c­as and high­light­ed in the 6/2/96 Ed Haslam inter­view.) (Record­ed in the spring of 1996.)
