17. CIA head Dulles? As in Secretary of State Dulles?
Edited on Fri Sep-02-11 05:30 PM by No Elephants
Yeah. Lots of weird coincidences around the JFK assassination.

ETA: Ok, I googled. CIA head Allen Welsh Dulles was the younger broth of Secretary of State John Foster Dulles.

Get a load of this:

{CIA head} Dulles was one of five children born to Presbyterian minister Allen Macy Dulles and his wife Edith (Foster). He was five years younger than his brother John Foster Dulles, Dwight D. Eisenhower's Secretary of Stateand chairman and senior partner of Sullivan & Cromwell, and two years older than his sister, diplomat Eleanor Lansing Dulles. His maternal grandfather was John W. Foster, who was Secretary of State under Benjamin Harrison. His paternal grandfather, John Welch Dulles, had been a Presbyterian missionary in China. His uncle (by marriage) Robert Lansing also was a U.S. Secretary of State.<1> His nephew, Avery Dulles, was a Roman Catholic cardinal, Jesuit priest and noted theologian who taught at Fordham University.

Three Secretaries of State, one diplomat and one CIA head in the same family. Wow.
