George Joannides

Updated on February 24, 2015

Joannides was instrumental in concealing the CIA's connection to Lee Harvey Oswald

Called out of retirement to be the CIA liason to the House Select Committee on Assassinations, George Joannides never disclosed that he had supervised the DRE, The Cuban Student Directorate, who in 1963 played an antagonistic role in establishing Lee Harvey Oswald's legend as sympathizing with Castro, when in fact Oswald was a soldier in the secret war against Fidel Castro.

      Bob this is a first for me in two ways - 1. With over 40 books on the JFK assassination this is the first time I have heard of Joannides, and a big piece of the jigsaw just falls into place.

      2. I have just today been given Squidangel status - and I'm happy to make this the first lens I ever 'bless'.

      Keep up the great work!

      it would seem that your analysis of events is well founded.I believe that the JFK assassination disturbed you and that you have spent many years researching the case.This particular page that you have written is very interesting and informative.I always thought that the JFK assassination was an overkill.[ pattern ]

      [in reply to alasion] What I'm saying straight out is that he was involved in creating Oswald's "legend" and involved in hiding the truth from the House Select Committee.

      Big O? Big B? These terms are foreign to me.

      JFK's assasination was orchestrated by a group of anti-Castro Cubans and

      high echelon CIA personnel.

      I don't believe it was "ordered" per se; it was more like a consensus was arrived at by those who arranged it. The identities of the actual assassination team members may never be known, but many of the players identities are well established.
