According to the National Archives' online JFK data base , the CIA has a 61-page file on Morales that has never been made public.
7. The files of George Joannides
Geoerge Joannides by www.jfkfacts.org
In 1963, Joannides, an undercover officer, worked for David Phillips and he worked with David Morales. His job title was chief of psychological warfare operations at the CIA's Miami station; his job was running agents.
Joannides handled the CIA's contacts with the Cuban Student Directorate, an anti-Castro exile group whose members tangled with Oswald in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. The group, responsive to CIA discipline, publicized Oswald's pro-Castro ways before and after JFK was killed.
Yet, as the New York Times reported in 2009, the CIA did not tell the Warren Commission that the CIA, via Joannides, had a financial relationship with Oswald's anti- Castro antagonists.
When Congress reopened the JFK investigation in 1978, the CIA called Joannides out of retirement to serve as liaison to investigators. He revealed nothing about what he knew of contacts between Oswald and his agents, which HSCA general counsel G. Robert Blakey said constituted obstruction of Congress. In 1981 Joannides received the Agency's Career Intelligence Medal. He died in 1990.
In the course of my lawsuit seeking Joannides's records , the CIA acknowledged that it retains more than 50 documents about Joannides's actions in 1963 and 1978 that it will not make public -- for reasons of "national security."
How will the public confidently know when ALL the records have been released? First and foremost, this must be ordered and announced publicly by you, President Obama. The public may thereafter seek affirmation the records have indeed become public from those leading the most reputable organizations that evolved during the past 50 years, pursuing and documenting issues related to President Kennedy's assassination, including: The Mary Ferrell Foundation (www.maryferrell.org); Coalition on Political Assassinations (www.politicalassassinations.org); JFKlancer (www.jfklancer.com); The Cyril Wecht Institute for Forensic Sciences (www.cyrilwecht.com); JFKfacts (www.jfkfacts.org). Americans may trust in the perspective of attorney Mark Lane (www.marklane.com), an early, constant and continuing voice for truth, alerting America to inconsistencies between evidence and the Warren Commission's "official" version of assassination events: Rush to Judgment (book and movie); A Citizens Dissent: The Alarming Account ofthe Vast Efforts ofthe Powerful and Influential Forces of Our Government and the Establishment Media to Suppress Mark Lanes Investigation into the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy ; Plausible Denial: Was the CIA Involved in the Assassination of John F. Kennedy? ; and Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK .
President Eisenhower warned of dangers implicit in a "military-industrial" complex that now seems more fully developed into a "military-industrial-intelligence-financial/banking-legal- corporate-info/entertainment" complex. Resulting concerns are well expressed in the global reaction to the extent of America's spying, or intelligence gathering activities, recently disclosed by Edward Snowden. The urgent need for restoring transparency to America' s governing institutions and processes, and confidence therein, can best be furthered by prompt release of ALL the assassination records.
President Obama, as the world watches on November 22, 2013, a perceived and longstanding trend towards increasing secrecy, even tyranny, can be effectively reversed by your faithful action to order immediate, unredacted release "in full" of ALL as yet sealed records associated directly, or indirectly, with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Please do so.
