Oswald and the CIA Hardcover – May 1, 1995 by John Newman (Author) Tight Binding Bright Clean Slight edge wear Not Ex Library Not a remainder A study of the Kennedy assassination and the links between Lee Harvey Oswald and the CIA provides revelations about the agency's secret operations This meticulously documented expose gives the lie to the official CIA position that it had no relationship of any kind with Lee Harvey Oswald, alleged assassin of President John Kennedy. A former U.S. military intelligence officer for 20 years, Newman (JFK and Vietnam) relies primarily on newly released government documents made available within the last three years under the JFK Assassination Records Act, passed in 1992, which mandates that the U.S. government make available all its information on this case.
