Clay Shaw

Ostensibly an aide to General Charles Thrasher, Shaw stated under oath that he was an OSS (Office of Strategic Services) liaison to Churchill's headquarters. During WWII, received military decorations that would be unlikely if Shaw were merely an aide to Thrasher. Discharged from the Army with the rank of Major, later made a Colonel.

Founded the New Orleans International World Trade Center. Probably involved in money laundering. Served on the Board of Permindex.

Strange claims are made about Shaw's death. He was definitely suffering from lung cancer.
