Doesn’t change the fact CIA obstructed justice by withholding information about Oswald. CIA failed to inform Warren Commission that they had hired Mafia to murder Castro and who knows who else. Disgraced former CIA Director Allen Dulles, of course, served as straw boss of Warren Commission.

Tim Weiner and Rolling Stone got all that. Russia manipulates Western media, governments, groups and individuals. That doesn’t forgive CIA doing same thing in regards to Dallas when misinforming and disinforming the Warren Commission, HSCA and We the People.

ETA: Oliver based his film on the work of James Garrison, US Attorney in New Orleans — the only US Government prosecution of any one involved in the assassination of President Kennedy.
