RION: Richard M. Helms



Three documents are presented for your inspection. An internal message sent using pseudonyms (code names) between the CIA's Mexico City Chief of Station Winston Scott and Deputy Director for Plans Richard Helms. The cable reveals in the days following President Kennedy's assassination officials internally supported the possibility of a conspiracy. A position Helms would consistently deny and seek to dispel after the President's Commission Report. Two other documents identify Helms as Fletcher Knight and Scott as Willard Curtis. #JFK
