If such suspicions had proved correct, the Cold War might have turned hot. Nosenko, however, told the CIA exactly the opposite – that Oswald was not a Soviet agent newsweek: CIA Chief of  ounterintelligence James Angleton believed Nosenko was ... possibly trying to possibly cover up a true, deeper connection between Oswald and the Soviet Union.
