By reading this diary entry by Edward J. Epstein, open-minded guests and members can learn not only about false-defector Yuri Nosenko, but about the KGB's "inside man/outside man" approach to counterintelligence operations, as well.

Which devestating approach was implemented in 1959 with the creation of Department D, aka Department 14, in the KGB's Second Chief Directorate (today's FSB).

Fwiw, Newton "Scotty" Miler is one of my heroes.

Have you read the Edward J. Epstein link, above, yet?

For his 1978 book Legend, Epstein got a lot of information (not about Oswald, but about the situation in general) from my other hero, Tennent H. Bagley.

Cheers!

PS  It was Tom Mangold's main source, Leonard McCoy, who destroyed the files Epstein talks about.

TOP SECRET

13 October 1970

MEMORANDUM FOR THE RECORD

Subject: BAGELY, Tennant, Harrington

#386 38

1) On Wednesday, 7 October 1970 I briefed Colonel L. K. White, Executive  Director-Controller on certain reservations I have concerning the proposed promotion of subject to a supergrade position.

2)  I was very careful to explain to Colonel White at the outset that my reservations had nothing whatsoever to do with Bagely's security status. I explained that it was my conviction that Bagely was almost exclusively responsible for the manner in which the Nosenko case had been handled by our SR division. I said I considered that Bagely lacked objectivity and that he had displayed extremely poor judgment over a two year period in the handling of this case. Specifically as one example of Bagely's extreme prejudice I pointed out that the SR division had neglected to follow up several leads provided by Nosenko which subsequently had been followed up by this office (Bruce Solie) and that this lead us to individuals who have confessed their recruitment and use by the Soviets over an extensive period of time.

3)  I explained further that Bagely displayed extremely poor judgment in the actions he took during that time that  Nosenko was incarcerated at ISOLATION. On many occasions, as the individual responsible for Nosenko's care, I refuse to condone Bagely's  instructions to my people who are guarding him. In one instance Bagely insisted that  Nosenko's food ration be reduced to black bread and water three times daily. After I had briefed Colonel White, he indicated that he would refresh the Director's memory on Bagely's role in the Nosenko case at the time he reviews supergrade promotions.
