Hosty asserts he himself was the victim of FBI deception in connection with Kostikov. The agent said someone in the FBI office in Dallas prevented him from being able to testify about the true KGB mission of Kostikov when Hosty appeared before the Warren Commission. Oswald’s internal security file was secretly removed from its place in the Dallas office, Hosty claims, when he was ordered to attend a Dallas police interrogation of Oswald hours after Kennedy was shot. Consequently, Hosty said he never saw some newly arrived documents that revealed Oswald met with Kostikov, identified as the KGB agent for assassination and sabotage. Missing Camera Hosty contends the Kostikov documents were reinserted into the Dallas FBI files after he appeared before the Warren Commission five months later. His commission testimony of May 1964 supports his story: “I was quite interested in determining the nature of his Embassy in Mexico City. I had not resolved that on the 22nd of November to resolve that.” Nothing indicates the excised documents ever reached the Warren Commission. Hosty recalls that Alan Belmont, Hoover’s assistant, became quite disturbed when Hosty mentioned Kostikov’s name during a preliminary briefing in preparation for his testimony. Hosty told Warren Commission lawyers he saw a notation somewhere in the Dallas office on the day of the assassination that Oswald met “with a Russian named Kostikov.” Belmont, Hosty said, muttered under his breath, ” Damn it, I told them not to let you see that.’ ” Kostikov’s true role as a KGB agent was not publicly revealed until thirteen Ronnie Dugger: “Heard’s accounts of the Bees in hiding are the pure gold of real history.” Bryan Woolley \(Dallas Times “It ought to be right beside the Alamo books.” “The Miracle of the KILLER BEES: 12 Senators Who Changed Texas Politics” by Robert Heard Honey Hill Publishing Co. 1022 Bonham Terrace, Austin, Texas 78704 $7.95 plus $1.03 tax and shipping years after the assassination, in 1976, when the Senate Intelligence Committee declassified the CIA’s report of Oswald’s Mexico City contacts. The committee said the FBI’s Soviet experts in Washington in 1963 knew of Kostikov’s KGB role. The panel stated it was “most surprising” the FBI’s Soviet experts “did not intensify their efforts in the Oswald case” after being informed of his meeting with Kostikov. THE KOSTIKOV incident wasn’t the only one for which an important FBI document failed to reach the Warren Commission. Within a month after Oswald returned from Russia to the United States in 1962, FBI agents interviewed him to try to determine, among other things, whether he was a “sleeper,” a Soviet agent provocateur. During the interview, Oswald refused to take a polygraph test about his negative answers to questions of ties with Soviet intelligence. Two years later the pages that discussed Oswald’s refusal to take the lie detector test were omitted from the FBI report of the interview given the Warren Corbmission. And John W. Fain, the agent who wrote the report, did not disclose Oswald’s refusal to be polygraphed when he later testified before the Warren Commission, the Senate Intelligence Committee said, “despite detailed questioning by commission members . . . as . to the discrepancies in Oswald’s statements and Fain’s reactions to them.” Other potentially important evidence which never reached the Warren Commission was Oswald’s Minox a miniature camera often used for espionage work loaded with exposed film. Dallas police found the German-made camera in a search of Oswald’s old Marine seabag after the assassination and listed it in their inventory of Oswald’s property. The Minox camera subsequently was listed in the FBI’s inventory when Dallas police turned over all the property to the Bureau four days after the assassination. However, one day later, after the property was delivered to the FBI laboratory in Washington, the camera item was changed to read “Minox light meter.” The FBI also tried unsuccessfully to pressure Dallas police into reporting a light meter in place of the camera. “The thing we got at Irving out of Oswald’s seabag was a Minox camera, no doubt about it,” said Gus Rose, the Dallas police detective who found it. “They [FBI] tried to get me to change the [police inventory] records because 12 NOVEMBER 25, 1983
