Bernard.Fensterwald: Fensterwald,,was born on August 2, 1921, at Nashville,
Tennessee: He received the B. S. degree from Harvard College in 1942 ·

of Mr. Fensterw~IC!'s mother. and sister appeared on a list of delegates and


" members of the South~rn Conference for Human Welfare, c·ited by the House
Committee on Un-American Activities, at a meeting held on.April 19-21,
1942, at Nashville, Tennessee. Fensterwald and his mother traveled to the

t \~. ~
wherein we had furnished information to members of Cong}"ess'. ,se\{~tor
Henning subsequently advised the Bureau that Fensterwald 's requests ' tp
the Bureau had been improper. Over the past.four years we have had
considerable contact with Bernard Fensterwald as Chief Counsel of the
United states Senate Committee on· the Judiciary; Subcommittee on Adminis- ·
trative Practice and Procedure (the Loni'Co~mittee). In these contacts-·
with Fensterwald it was clearly evident4'J:\e,,was
# $. ,,_ .unscrupulous,
,.., untrustworthy
and anti-FBI. He frequently endeavored
. to draw
~ ,. .·
the FBI into .
conflicts .
around the
. country by his requests of various ...,_..._ ,...telephone . companies and
. other sources who might possibly have inforJ:IlatiQ.)l of wiretaps and other
technical surveillances by the FBI. · In January, 1966, in connection. with
Fensterwald's hearings in San Francisco he indicated that ex-Agent William
Turner would be one of the. witnesses he intended to call in connection with
the extent of FBI wiretapping. Mr. DeLoach briefed Fensterwald and
Senator Long who was pre'sent
~~ ~'
at the time of the. discussion with Fensterwald
as.to Turner's unsavory Backgrorn:rl. Fensterwald indicated he would take
a second look at Turner in .~ew'of ......the- .information furnished - by Mr. DeLoach.

1 Mr. Rosenthal said it is very interesting to knm". that
; Fensterwald, who is Long's Chief Counsel, and Fred Graham are boyhood
friends from Tennessee and are very friendly now. Obviously, Graham
is getting all his information from Fensterwald, who has been pushing
Senator Long on this matter.

ACTION:

For infor.mation.
? .
-ADDENDUM: CDD:mel 12-18-65

Insofar as the newspaper inquiries are concerned, we will


continue to "no comment" any inquiries received concerning the above mentioned
matter. Obviously the "heat" on this matter is building up again at.the present
time because of Graham and his known enmity towards the FBI. It is not
believed that it is necessary to fly to Missouri and face Long at this time. We
know that the Department is taking. positive steps to kill off the law suit against .
our personnel in Las Vegas, Nevada, and it is felt that if the Department is .
successful in this regard there will be less "heat" insofar as Senato:r: Long's
Committee is concerned. A summary memorandum will be submitted' to the .
Director no later than Tuesday, 12-21-65 regarding the exact status of the

Isituation with Senator Long at the present time and recommendations for· ·
handling this matter with him immediately following the first of the year when
he returns to Washington. , ~ dR'-

LAS VEGAS CASE STUDIED BY SENATOR


LONG OF MISSOURI
BY Fred P. Graham
Special to the New York Times
Washington, D. C., 12/16/65
. J~/ .
Senator Edward V. Long of Missquri said today that he was
considering turnilg his wire tap investigation against the Federal Bureau of -·.-.
Investigation. ·

Mr. Long, a Democrat, said he would decide early next month


v,:hether to hold public hearings concerning what he called wholesale wire
tapping by the FBI in Las Vegas, Nevada, that his investigators had been
informed about. If so, it would be a new turn in the five-month old investi'gation
that has already shaken the Internal Revenue Service with testimony about
violations of taxpayers' privacy in several cities.

Almost all of the violations were conii.ected with the. Government's


organized crime drive against suspected racketeers.

It was the hearing involving the Revenue Service that turned up


testimony about illegal eaves-dropping by .the Federal Bureau of Investigation
in Las Vegas, Miami and Kansas City.

When evidence of wire tapping by the Federal Bureau's Agents_


first cropped up in the hearings,Senator Long seemed reluctant to discuss them:.
But in hearings in Kansas City last October he asked several witnesses if they
knew about FBI activities. He did not call the Agents to ieS::ify.

The wire tapping by Federal Agents in Las Vegas has come to
public attention in a series of legal moves since it was accidently discovered
in April, 1963. \
'
· Last Friday the FBI Agent in Charge of the Las Vegas Division,
Dean W. Eslon and three of his Special Agents were named in a .$6 million
invasion - Of - privacyl-~.Jll.~.l'.. suit filed by two ~otel executivESin Las Vegas.
One suit was filed by Everett Levinson, part owner of the Fremont Hotel in
Las Vegas who once was a business associate of Robert G.Baker, secretary
to the Senate Democratic Majority. He sued the four Agents, the Central
Telephone Company and six of its employees for conspiracy to place wire tap
de:vices in his quarters in the hotel.

A similiar suit was brought by his assistant Johnny Grandy.


'~~
The suits charged that the Federal Bureau had leased 25 special
lines from the telephone company early in f961 so that Agents could monitor .
the plaintiffs' conversations from the FBI's office. According to the suit,

. On May 14, cailed. He is the U:-dividual I


ta_lked to abou~ a reque~t from the Senate Committe_e on Constitutional Gondy
Rights for a list of all instances where we had furrushed information or had not
---1
furnished information to Members of Congress. On that occasion I also talked
to Tom Hennings who, in Fensterwald' s presence, stated the request was
improper. He apologized and stated his office was to work in the closest of
harmony with the Bureau and he was very profuse in expressions ·of personal
friendship. Since that time, Fensterwald has gone out of his way to trj to be
helpful. · · ·

When he called on the 14th, Fensterwald stated the Senator had


been asked to introduce legislation to block the deportation of Pierre LaFitte.
The Senator wanted Fensterwald to check with us b€fore giving it consideration.
I told Fensterwald that this,· of course, was a matter for Immigration Service
and on a purely personal and confidential basis the Senator should be exceeding~y ..

I
cautious before he got out on a limb; that if he inquired into LaFitte' s background;'
ne would find an extensive record; and that under no circumstances would the
Bureau support LaFitte. I told him that officially, of course, we could not take
a position but that, personally, we would hate to see some friend embarrassed
and he should be very cautious. Fensterwald stated that was en0ugh for him.

Paris Flammonde appears in the January 1969 issue of Evergreen
as the author of an article entitled "Why President Kennedy Was Killed".
His book The Kennedy Conspiracy has been published by Meredith

was for many years the producer of the Long John Nebel radio show.
We have no record of him.

Daar Mr. Helms:

··on January 4, 1971, the C.I.A. declassified a document,


· signed by you in March of 1964, and addressed to Mr. J •
.. Lee Rank.in, counsel to the President's Commission on the
Death of President John F. Kennedy. The rec~ntly ·.declassi-
fied document, the date of which is difficult to read, is
identified as Commission No. 674; a copy is attached for
r purposes of identification.

You will note a reference in paragraph 2 of the document


to .. photographs of an unidentified man who visited the
Cuban and Soviet Embassies in (Mexico] City during October
and November 1963." In paragraph 4, you . informed the Com-
mission :that Mr. Willens or Mr. stern could view the "pho-
tographs of unidentified man that are in our file."

Having conducted an extensive investigation into the murder


of President Kennedy, we feel that we might be able to
identify the man in the photographs. Being aware of the
requirements of the Freedom of Information Act, we enclose
our check for $20.00 to cover the cost of making copies of
the photographs. If there is a greater charge, please in-
form us, as we are desirous of obtaining the photographs·
without delay.

i SUBJECT : Kennedy Assassination - Warren


Commission Report

I. This memorandum is for your information.


\

2. The attached letter is Bernard Fensterwald's request


for photographs in connection with the Warren Commission Report.
You will recall that one photograph of the unidentified man in
Mexico City is in the open record and the now unclassified papers
pertaining to it speak of photographs. Under these circurr_stances,
I took the position that we could not withstand a request premised
on the Freedom of In.formation Act, and '. readily agreed .
to make available other photographs of the same man for Mi-.
Fensterwald's i~spection.

3. Mr. Fensterwald ·came to my office this morning with


his partner, William G. Ohlhausen, looked at th.e other photo-
graphs, and told us he did know who the man was. He said he is
presently serving a prison term somewhere in the United States
and admitted that he had known Oswald, but Mr. Fensterwald
said there was nothing to indicate any connection between the man
in the photographs and the assassination of President Kennedy.
Mr. Fensterw ald did not give us the man's name at this time, as
he said enough people had suffered unneces sarilr from allegations
that they were associated with the assassination, but he did say ·
he was sure we had a file on the man. He asked if he could have

he did not know and finally agreed that for the time being he
would not press his request. I then returned their check for
$20. 00. The whole meeting was extremely friendly and they
thanked us for our response.

from the names they gave as being of interest to them, they
appeared to be following down some of the. same old t~acks ·

SUBJECT Interview With Bernard Fensterwald, · Jr.


,. Re: Photo Of Unknown Man In Oswald Case

Larry Houston, General' Counsel , invited me to join him in


an inte:i:view this morning with Mr . Fen~; terwald regarding the un-
known man who v..ras photographed by us in Mexico City during the
per i od Oswald was in Mexico (see attached letter). We met
Fensterwald at 8 :45 a. m. in Mr. Houston's office. Fens.terwald
was accompanied by his law partner William C. Ohlhausen. We
showed them the three pictures in the attached envelope.

Mr. Fenst~rwald said he knew who the person was and had
spoken to him; that the man was too nervous .to c9me forth on his

- own. Fensterwald would n ot give the person's name but said he is


a n American, s _e rving a prison term in this country on a criminal
charge, and that he had met Oswald in Mex ico. I asked whether the
prisoner had any conspiratorial relationship with Oswald. Fensterwald
replied he did not know the answer as he had not interviewed the man
as yet. We rei~ erated that we did not know who the man was, anc:I said
that we would lik e to know his identity ~ Fensterwald replied that CIA
has a thick file on the unknown man, and that we will be furnished his
name i n due cou r s e. He asked w hy w e didn't have a picture of Oswald
· since it w as w ell known w e were photographing the embassies from
_acro s s the stre et. W e replied t:fiat we knew of no pictures tha t we;e
taken of Oswald i nMex ico City and that Fensterwald would have to

take our word on this as well as our explanatio~ of the circum-


stances surrounding the photo of the unknown man.
'
I

!
We told him that Mr. Helms had issued instructions to
cooperate fully with the Warren Commission; that members of
the Commission visited CIA and were shown everything we had.
Fenstenvald seemed impressed by this and said that he doubted
that the American people were aware of this fact. He raised a
question about the 4 October date of the photo since Os,v:ald al-
ready had left Mexico. I explained that Oswald was not under in-
vestigation when he was in Mexico, and we did not learn about his
departure date and many other details until the exhaustive FBI in-
vestigation following the assassination. I also explained the reason
for the two affidavits of Mr. Helms. I told him that the Commission
was trying to disprove the -allegation by Oswald's mother that the .
man in the picture was Jack Ruby; that at first it asked for a de-

I tailed affidavit which was furnished, and then decided that the
broader one, used in the public record, would suffice. Fensterwald

I
said it was obvious that the picture was neither Oswald nor Ruby.

Fensterwald mentioned that he recently had been to Califor-


nia where he visited former Commission attorney Wesley J.
Liebeler (source of Epstein's book "Inquest") and that Liebeler
would like to see tbe case reopened. I noted that both Epstein and
Mark Lane (Rush to Judgement) used false dates when referring to
our turnover of t.he photo to the FBI. Fensterwald indicated that he
has done considerable investigation in .co·nnection with the assassina-
tion of President Kennedy and would like to see a congressional
hearing to bring out the full facts.

Fensterwald asked if he could have a copy of the picture


taken in front of the full wall. We declined on th!! grounds that it
never was used by the Commission nor placed in the public record;
that the Commission attorneys examined it and settled for what they
I con.sidered a better picture. After examintng the three photos~
Fensterwald said he saw no reason for the cropping initially since
.I one couldn't recognize the background. I replied that the person

who furnished the photo to the FBI didn 1 t want to take any chances.
He then said that he had no need fo~ the pictures anyway and thanked
.I us for cooperating with him.
·I Fensterwald did a little fishing about our classifieci exhibits
I in National Archives. We told him that they were being withheld to
.1 protect intelligence sources and methods - - not because of any
inc rim inatt n g contents; that some of the ex..lJ.ibits bearing different
numbers are int errelated, giving a misleading impression that
there are more exhibits than is the case.

Fensterwald is confident that he and his colleagues will come


up with the true solution to the Oswald case and discredit the Warren
Commission. On the basis of the few ideas he advanced, this is
strictly wishful thinking. One thing is clear, however, we apparently
have not heard the end of the unknown man.

Central Intelligence Agency

I Washington, D.C. 20505

Dear sir:

I a."11 111riting to forwally request that certain records pertai.ninq ·


to the "debriefing" of Lee Harvey Oswald by or on behalf of the
Central Intelligence Agency after his return from tl1e U.S.S.R.
in 1962 be made avail2ble to'me under the provisions of the Free-
dom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. §552) and 32 Fed: Reg_ 10759
dated Ju1y 21, 1967.

The records I seek are those indicating the date and ho-Jrs of
I Mr. Osw·ald's debriefing, and the city and street address of the
building in which the debriefing took place. If there are no
r physical rec_ords of the debriefing / please inform me whether
reco~ds ever existed and provide the requested information by
letter.

I am not asking for the names of i)f ficials who par'ticinated in


J:<ir. Oswald's session, nor am I asking for the subs'tantive content
of such interviews. If necessary, this material should be ex-
punged before making the records available.
i
!,. I have taken note that Mr. Helms. acknowledged before the A.-neri-
can Society of Newspaper Editors meeting in New York City on
April 14, 1971 that " ••• if there is a chance that a private
citizen travelling abroad has acquired foreign information that
ca...-i be useful to the Ai-nerican policymaker, we ar·e certainly goL-iq
to try to interview him." (New York Times, April 15, 1971, p.30)
.,l
Mr. Oswald would appear to ·be one who your agency \·muld have .had ·
an interest in debriefing.

. I
In yo·.ir letter of February 11th you requested a copy.
of a. photogra.ph which constituted Odum Exhibit 1 to the
Warren Cornmis sion. As we pointed out to you la.st April
when you visited this office, the uncropped photograph was
classified to protect the source and method of acquisition.
I, Nevertheless, a full disclosure was made to the President's
I
j Commission charged v1ith investigating the assassination of
President Kennedy, subject to that classification.

For your inform~tion, we still do not know the· identity


of the man in the photograph. In the intense effort to produce
everything that might possibly have some bearing on the assas-
sination of President Kennedy, the p·hotograph was furnished
1 to the Federal Bureau of Investigation on 22 Novembe.r 1963.
It was thought at that time that he might have had some associa-
tion with Oswald, since both were in the area. around the same
time. As it turned out, the photograph was taken on 4 October
1963, one day after Oswald left Me..xico and returned to Dallas
(Commission Report, p. 323 ). Oswald was not under investiga-
tion by us when he was in Mexico, and we did not l,earn about
his departure date and many other details until the.. exhaustive
FBI in,1estigatio:n. :following the assassination.

I appreci<::te your pro::npt reply of 18 February to my letter 0£


February 11, and for the moment I accept your explanation 0£
why it is not feasible at tbis time to release the· _uncropped
original of the photograph which constituted Odum Exhibit l to
the Warren Commission.
)
However, you did not respond to that portion of my inquiry con-
cerning "additional photographs of the same individual "tak2n
under other circumstances." Knowing the extent to which infor-
mation is compartmentalized within the CIA and between such
agencies as yours and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, i t
._._..,,.. occurs to me that you may not be awar~ of the existence and
import of Commission Document 566 (an FBI Report declassified.
by the Department of Justice on. 1/14/71), which sheds some ad-
ditional light on the individual depicted in Odum Exhibit ~ and
Commission Exhibit 237. !

-Enclosed is a copy of the first five pages of Commission Docu-
ment 566. The bulk of this document, in my opinion, has no
releva.c-ice to the assassination. However., the passage marked on
pages 3 and 4 persuade me to believe that the FBI, i£ not the
CIA, was in possession of at least three different photographs
of the individual depicted in Odum E:ishibi t 1, which photographS
appear to have been taken under two different sets of circum-
stances. Item 3 on page 4 of CD 566 seems unquestionably to
describe the photograph from which Odum Exhibit 1 was prepared,
With no i11di.catlo11 _of: c.l:'opplng or trimming. Moreover, those

photographs appear to have been shown to a foreign national in

closure .

I 1have bee n unable to find any indication that the fact of the

I furnished to the 'i'larren Commission, either by the FBI or the CIA.

The possibility occurs to me that some or all . of these photographs

its discretion, chose to furnish to the CIA and the Warren Com-
I mission only the item correspondirgto Odum Exhibit l, thus account-
ing for the silence of the CIA on this point. Can you cl.ear this
./ up for me? . !
I
You have suggested in your letter that I furnish any information I
I
concerning the man depicted in Odum Exhibit 1 to the appropriate j

agency I should contact? Would i t be the CIA? If ' so, I would

GUTIERREZ i·;as again shown a photograph ot: I.EE Hi\.RVV..: !
OSWALD which had appeared in 11 Life" magaz1.ne and Nhich dep1.cts j
OS\-!f\LD passing out pro- Cub;:m literature on a street in New !
Orleans, Louisiana. It is to be noted that this is a pro:file i
photograph of OSH/\LD sh01·rinQ; 'his rit:ht. arm extended and i
depicts his torso :from the i-1aist up. '

GUTIERREZ, on February 20:, 1964, stated that the


11
Life 11 magazine photograph of' OSl'lALD does not appear :familiar
·.to him and that he cannot say that this photograph in any
way resembles the American seen by.him in the company of: a
Cuban exiting the premises of the Cuban Elr,bassy 1.n r,Iex:Lco, .
D. F., on October 1, 1963. GUTIERREZ was told that this 1;lioto-:
graph is a photograph_ of LEE HARVEY OSWALD and he thereupon ·
stated that during his brief encounter with the -Arner·:l..can and
the Cuban on October 1, 1963, he at no time observed the
profiie view o:f either the .American or the Cuban.· He explaix1ed;
that when the Cuban bumped into him in the patio o:f the Cuban '
· .Einbassy (the details of' wr.icll he has previously reported), he ,
had only a brief ·oppo:i;-tunity to observe these persons f:rom a ·;
:front view and thereai'ter he wal1(ed behind these individuals .,
·and could only observ€) their baclw.
I

GUTI~RREZ
agreed that a mist&keri ident:l.ficat:l.on f'ro:n
ne1·1Spaper photographs :o:r OSl·TALD which he saw almost ti·10 months .
··.,Ij later 1·1ould be very pqss:l..ble. He pointed out, however, that he~
does not believe he is mistaken in his ident1:f1cation o:f OS\"JALD:
because the image of the American he observed during the ;
. ·'','
occurrence at the Cuban Embassy in Mex:Lco C:Lty on October 1,
1963, became firmly fixed :Ln his mind because o:f the importance
he attached to his observance that the Cuban and the f\mer:l..can ·
were arguing heatedly and that the Cuban passed some United · . ;i
states 9urrency to the American ai'ter these ind:Lviquals had . ;
exited the Cuban Embassy premises and were wa;J.ldng along the ''
pidewalk toward the Cuban's vehicle.
I . :!
'
GUTIERREZ state.d he is certain that· the Cuban 1s

Dear Bud: 'I
I have your letter of February 24th with which you !'
i ..
.' forwarded a declassified FBI report identified as the first
I five pages 'of Commission Docurrient 566. I was not previously
L.- familiar with the document and its reference to photographs .
l do not know at this point whether we can shed any light in
this area, but I will be "back to you in due time.

The comment in: my letter of February 18th about furnish-


ing information to the appropriate governmental agency ar'ose
from your statement in your letter of February 11th that the .
significan.ce of the individual in the picture has greatly increas.ed.
. Since your letter was in the context of the Warren Commission .
proceedings, I assumed it had some pertinence there. Since"we
were merely in the position of furnishing inforz:nation to the
Warren Commission, we would not be the proper agency t<;> take"
cognizance of such information, and since, as_ I said in. my
February 18th letter·, we have no information about the man
pictured in Odum Exhibit 1, we would not appear to have any
interest whatsoever in the ~atter. If there is ariy Government
interest at all, it would appear to be a matter for the Department
of Justice. As you have the information, you with your broad ·
·governmental experience would be the best judge of this.

Your letter of the eighteenth of February is somewhat perlexing.'
The conclusion that records of Oswald's debriefing do not exist now is
apparently based upon sta;:ements of persons other than yourself.

The letter and spirit of the Freedom of Information Act and the
applicable regulations require that you respond to iny request on your
own authority. Accordingly, I ask that you 1) make the records available;·
._;
or 2) state' the exemption provision of 5 u. s. c.' 552 'under which you '
clair:i privilege; or 3) state' that the records do not exist and never did
exis>:, if that is the fact.

You can understand that I am in no position to appeal your decisi".a ..


in admiillstrative channels and ill the courts until I know exac;;ly what;

·] of a cons p iratorial relationshi p be t wee n t h e Soviets and
Oswald either throu gh our coverage of t h e EmhassV' or
outside 1 11eetin~s. He specifically referred to ~oviet
consular officials Pavel Antonovich Yatskov and Valeriv
Vladirairovich Kostikov, one or hath of ,.! hom . os~·:al<1 •
contacted at the Soviet Embassy. ( Both Yatskov and .Kos tikov
were identified in t he Commission's Report as consular
of ficiRl s and KGB representative's.) I told him that CIA
did not hav~ Oswald under inves tigation when he was in
Mexico City; directed his attention to the pertinent
exhibit; nnd explained that the KGB affiliations of the
two Soviets were suuplied bv CIA e.xuerts who were aware
of their activities· ~nd not' by anything said or indicated
· b y Oswald i.n the evidence comni led by us. · ~!r. I chord
examined the exhibit, noted that Os'.vald 1 s ef-F'oM's
only related to securing visas; indicated that he had been
misinformed; and said that he had no further questions to.
ask on this point.

:) . fie said that his question Has s·r>arked by Bernard


fensterwald, Jr. a former constituent, about whom he
knew very little when he requested the documents. Since
then he has learned of Fensten~· ald's dubious credentials
as an expert on the assassination and of his association
wi th Jim Garrisson and others of qu est iona~le repute.
I de tailed our m·;n difficulties \'d th Fensterwald: his
ins istence that we are hiding somethin g , and how, as
Executive Director of the Committee to Investigate

classified documents under threat of invokin~ ~he

7_ I mentione~ in passing, that two other things


beyond 01ir control have contribute cl to the raisconcep ti ons

there are more exhibits than is the case. r;1e release
of the master list without the accom 0 anying documents

I caused much apprehension and misinterpretation, particularly


among assassination "buffs" and Ac;ency critics. I cited ·.·.

the President's Commission. I said no, but mentioned that
II former DCI Aller.. Dulles was on the Commission. HE then
turned to the makeuu of the Commission staff an.d ho\" i t
I was chosen. I replied that we were not really competent
to comment on how it 1·1as chosen but the staff consisted
largely of attorneys of varied political and ethnical
backgrounds from widely separated parts of the country;
that, from my observatioi:, the Commission was impressively
organized and a highly motivated, hard ·.-:or},ing group.

9. rlr. Ichord stated that he had no further questions


to ask and thanked us for easing his mind. ;•!e offered to
produce any other documents he might »Tish. to see. Mr. Ichord·
replied that this would not be necessary. He returned our
exhibits and told us to consider the matter closed.

recommend as follows:

the Director of Central Intellige;,,ce is responsible for
protecting from unauthorized disclosure (section 102(d)(3)
of the National Security Act of 1947, as amended}. Pursuant
to that statutory requirement, the photographs were clas-
sified in accordance with Executive Order 10501, and this
classification is continued pursuant to the provisions of
Executive Orde~ 11652. , Spe.cifically, sec;tion. l(J?) of ..
Executive Order 11652 refers to information'which requires
a substantial deg:-ee of p::;:-otection· and among th~ examples

Dear Larry,

If your memory hasn-ct failed worse than mine in our aging process, you will recall
a meeting regarding an unidentified man characterized as a "possible white male
sus]ect" in the J :fK case.

Following a suggestion from you, I sought from the FBI two additional photographs
of the 'same man which were taken in Mexico City. Ultimately .. we got the photos;
copies are enclosed.

At your convenience, we would appreciate a meeting with you and your assassination
expert (who was present at our last meeting). If possible, I would like to bring Fletcher
Prouty, Robert: Smith, and Jim Lesar. If, for security reasons, it would be easier to
meet in my office, we would like very much to have you and your colleague t9 lm1ch.
Hopefully, your secretary and mine can arrange a convenient time and place

With warm reg~ds ..

~~

DETAILS:

A UPI release ·on January 3, 1969, announced the formation··'"


: '•
of a new National Committee to Inv_estigate Assassinations. According to
' ;I.. Bernard Fensterwald, 47, of Arlington, Virginia;· a board member, the·... ·..
. ..:• ·., .·committee's pu:i:pose is "to embarrass or force the Government to make· . ·.:· ·
,J,nvestigatio_1\!3 they have been putting off since November 22, 1963." . '~ : :::: ..
... . According to"Fensterwald, the committee will concentrate on the assassina-
tions of President Kennedy, Senator Robert Kennedy and Dr. Martin Luther
King. In addition to Fensterwald, other members were ic!entified as Jim · -.~:.
Garrison, New Orleans District Attorney; V/illiam Turner, former FBI ·. ·_
Agent; Fred J. Cook, author; Richard Sprague, Hartsciale, New YorkJ .'•" '.·~' ·
:
a computer expert; Lloyd Tupling, associated with the Sierra Club, " . ,
Washington, D. C.; and Paris Flammonde, a New York writer who is, :., .
· the .author of a book on assassinations, which is soon to be released. ; ,.•• .: ·

·The Director has asked for a memorandum on FensterwalC,


Sprag,ue, Tupling and Flammoncie. - · _·/ . · ·
·. . .

"Bernard Fens·cerwald: Fenste::.-wald was born on August 2, 1921, at Nashville,


Tennessee. He received the B. S. degree from Harvard College in 1942
., and the LL. B. degree from Harvard Law School in 1949. He received the
M.A. degree in 1950 from the School of Advanced International Studie;:;, : .
: ~·· Washington, D. C. ·

FeEsterwald was the subject of applicant-type bquiries con-


ciucted by the Bureau in 1949 and 1959. Vlhile generally fa.vorable, t.'-:e naines
of !v'.i:r. Fensterwalcl's mottler and sister appeared on a list oi delegates and
members of the Southern Conference for Human V!eliare, cited ·by the House
....· Committee on Un-American P..ctivities, at a meeting held on .Ap:ril 19-21,
1942, at Nashville, Tennes~ee. Fensterwald and his mother traveled to the
._ Soviet Union in June, 1956, for a three-week vac2.tion visit. ..t~t that time,
Fenstc:rwalci was employed as a lawyer by the United States Department of State.

Fensterwdc! has been employ2C. on the staffs of .a number of


Sen::..'.:e committc:es. fa 1953 Fensterwald was e1:1ployed by the Senate Silo..:

whereh1 we haC: furnished information to members of Congress. Senator".-··.


Henning subsequently aG.vised the Bureau that Fensterwald 's requests to
tile Bureau had been improper. Over the past four years we have had
considerable contact with Bernard ·Fensterwald as· Chief Counsel of the
United Sta.tes Senate Committee on the Judiciary; Subcommit.tee on Adminis-
trative Practice and Procedure (the Long Committee). In these contacts
with Fensterwalci it was clearly evident he was unscrupulous, untrustworthy
.. ,.· and anti-FBI. He frequently endeavored to draw the FBI into conflicts
around the country by his requests of various telephone companies and .,,_.
other sou:c-ces who niight possibly have information of wL:·Gta~)S and other
technical sm:veillances by the FBI. In January, 1966, in connection with
;F'ensterwald's hearings in San Francisco he indicated that ex-Agent William
Turner would be one of the witnesses he intended to call in connection with .
the _extent of FBI wlretapping. Mr. De Loach oriefed Fensterwald and
Senator Long who was present at the time of the discussion with Fensterwald
as to Turne:c-'s unsavory background.. Fenste:c-wald indicatec he would take
·a second look at Turner in view of the information furnished by Mr. DeLoach.
(Turner is ·reportedly another board member of the assassL'1ation committee)

"The Natioi1" magazine in December, 1965, carried an article


by Fred J. Cook dealing with wiretapping by Government agencies, including
the FBI. It was obvious Cook, a longtime FBI critic, had obtained the
information for his artide from Fensterwald whom he quote.:l several times.
Typic:o:.l of many of Fensterwald's utterances in connection with his assignment
as Chief Counsel of Senator Long's committee was th.e statement, in "The
Nation" magazine a:·ticle, "The thing that has impressed me most is the ease
with which Federal agents can lie under oath. "

·· .. · .
Iv1r. DGLoach maintained close oersonal liaison with Senator .
Long concerning the work of thG FBI as it might pertain to inquiries conducted
by his committee?. On occasions letters directed to the ·FBI re~uGsting certain
information w;;re handled orally by Mr. DeLoach with SGnato:c- Long who
indicated fuat Fenste1·wald had prepared the lettGrs. One such instance was
in DGcemb2r, 1937, in co::mection with FBI contacts wifo credit udons. On
that occasion, Senator Long stated we sho:.Ud ig11ore the letter and he would
instruct Fensterwald to "keep hands off" the F:o::.. On 1;'.-,2 same occasion .

"P...ssassination of President John Fitzgerald Kennedy, 11-23-63, Dallas, Texas, •

taken at the assassination site, and also stating that he W2.S a p1·oponent of tile
t.'leory that mo!'e than one individual was firing shots at President Kennedy when

negative.

f.: brief biographical data concerning .Fensterwald and bis


e~ploy.:ients, together with the data developed during the

furnishes Memphis information concerning Fenste:nrald's anti-FBI
attitude and bis associa~ion with Turner.

RECOIBJENDATION:
That the attached letter, 1f approved, be fo?"Warded

C T I A NEWSLETTER
COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE ASSASSINATIONS
1520 16th Street, N.W., Suite 101
Washington, D.C. 20036
(202) 232-1152

Fall, 1973

This Newsletter has been l ong overdue and for that we


apologize and make no excuses .

Our committee had its latest Board of Directors meeting


in Washington on August 15th and at that time a number of
decisions were made. Probably the one of greatest interest
was the ratification of plans for a two ~ay conference on
November 23rd and 24th. The Conference will be held at
Georgetown University and presented jointly by our committee
and the University. Although the affair comes on the 10th
Anniversary of JFK's murder, the conference wil l also cover
the RFK, King, and Wallace shootings. We expect to attract
as speakers and panelists a large number of experts repre-
senting diverse views on the several cases. Among other
things we expect to have special discussions on the following
subjects: medical evidence , physical evidence, new investi-
gative techniques, l egal aspects, conspiracy theories generally,
and new books and movies.

As the number of those who can attend the conference is


limited by the size of the auditorium, admission will be by
registration on a first come, first served basis. If you
wish to assure yourself of admittance, there is enclosed a
registration blank for your convenience. The arrangements
for the Conference are being made by Ms. Andrea Wyatt.
Questions can be addressed to her c/o CTIA, 1520 16th Street,
N.W., Suite 101, Washington, D. c. 20036.

The committee is also tr y ing to arrange for the produc-


tion of a documentary film which would be, in effect, a
critique of Dal las, ten years later. we are unfortunately
running into problems of both finance and film rights. The
movie project i s in the hands of a young New Yorker, Bob
Galdston, who i s a ·musician and record producer.
Page Three

"Q. Mr. President, you recently suggested that


if the late Robert Kennedy had initiated 10 more
wiretaps, he would have been able to discover the
Oswald plan, as you described it , and thereby pre-
sumably prevent the assassination of President
Kennedy."

"A. Let me correct you, sir. I want to be


sure that the assumption is correct. I said if 10
more wiretaps could have found the conspiracy .
uh, if it was a conspiracy, or the individual, then
it would have been worth it."

The President's uncertainty on the matter has not been


further elaborated .

Another recent development appeared in the July issue


of Penthouse Magazine. Writer George O'Toole, applying a
new type of purported lie detection device (PSE) to the
recorded statements of various warren commission witnesses,
has found what he believes to be a pattern of deception
consistent with the view that Oswald was framed. O'Toole
has since carried his research much further and will report
his findings in a book which will be pub l ished late this year
or early in 1974.

A movie has been made out of Mark Lane's and Don Freed's
book Executive Action, starring Burt Lancaster and Robert
Ryan. The flick is part fact and part fiction. rt is due
for rel~ase in November; possibly its premier will be held
in Washington on November 22nd, though its producers are
hoping to have it open in Dallas.

~-F-K.

Sirhan Sirhan has acquired a new lawyer, Roger Hanson,


of Los Angeles. Hanson has achieved considerable recognition
for his efforts to re- open the infamous Kirschke Case. He
believe~ that if he is successful in that case (and we be-
lieve he will be) , then he can get a n~w trial for Sirhan.
He would have at least three major thi~gs going for him:
Page Five

There are also particular Watergate effects. For


example, E. Howard Hunt's rn~w book on the Bay of Pigs
emphasizes the zeal with which the author advocated Castro's
assassination coincidentally with the 1961 invasion. The
name Frank Sturgis (or Frank Fiorini, etc.) rings a familiar
bell; Sturgis apparently once claimed that he had encountered
Oswald in Miami, stimulating an investigation by the FBI
which produced three lengthy documents in the warren Com-
mission's files. Arid then there is Arthur Bremer; many people
wonder whether he was financed and directed at an early stage
of his career by any White House "agents."

Even Chappaquiddick has drawn the attention of Ervin


and cox, and a lawsuit has been filed against the "plumbers"
by one of Mary Jo Kopechne's roommates. And so on.

*****
The Committee is still basically unfunded. We have
enough for rent, telephone and postage, but that's about
all. If any of you can spare a few dollars you can be
assured that they will be put to good use. Four contribution
blanks are enclosed; please distribute them to interested
persons. If you can spare more than a few dollars, we might
even be able to afford to hire a trained investigator to
follow some of the myriad leads .smoldering away in our files.

We hope to see you in November.

a series of other criminal acts including burglarizing homes,

offices, and erribassies? What about Sirhan Sirhan, the assassin

of Robert Kennedy, and James E<'Lr 1 Ray, the killer of Martin Luther

King, and Arthur Bremer, the man who shot. George Wallace? Did

Hunt or Liddy or his strange Cuban contacts, did any or all of

them know any of these people? If so, how and how well? Under

normal circumstances, and in more normal times, these questions

would not be asked. Unfortunately for us all, circumstances are

fai from normal. These are not normal times. Among people on

the street, among people far removed from the elite strata of

politics and with no stake or arribi ti on in partisan politic al

machinations, the questions are there, wandering the backroads of

their minds. Especially about the assassination of President

Kennedy. Doubts. long have nagged. The warren commission con-

eluded on the basis of evidence and testimony available at the

time that Oswald and probably Oswald alone fired at President

Kennedy. No conspiracy was the conclusion. Please pardon the

personal reference, but it seems advisable in this instance to note

that this reporter was in Dallas when Kennedy was shot, followed

closely th.e warren investigation, and conducted for CBS News and

with CBS Newp' full resources an independent investigation. Then

and ever since, this reporter had defended the warren Commission

and.its conclusions. However, it occurred at the time, to this


Page Nine

,Another part of the reason is fear -- fear of opening further

all those old doubts and suspicions. But fear of the truth is not

an American trait. Perhaps it isn't time to re-open the case of

the Kennedy assassination, or any of the others in any formal

way. It may be, however, that someone, somewhere in authority

already is asking quietly, investigatively, some of the tough

questions about characters such as Hunt and Liddy and their Cuban

contacts and whether they had at any time any connection with

Oswald, Sirhan, Ray, or Bremer.
