"One day after the CIA blocked the full release of JFK
documents, in defiance of the law, it's more clear than ever who's
running the Trump admini
Trump still insists that after six months -- or maybe another 25 years
-- the American people will be granted full "transparency." But Roger Stone, the Trump advisor who's been courageously
pushing for full release of the Kennedy records, has been around the
block in Washington too long to have much faith in this:
data dump that the National Archives did in July of a small amount of
JFK-related material is any indication, the fallback of the intelligence
agencies appears to be redact and withhold as much of this information
as possible,” Stone stated yesterday. “They’ll use the broad rubric of
national security. If the censorship is so great to make the president’s
order meaningless, it’ll get litigated in the courts.”
came to this defining moment in American history -- over whether we are a
closed or open society -- it was the CIA's authoritarian director Mike
Pompeo, not Stone, who prevailed in the Oval Office.
What exactly is the CIA still hiding by blocking the full release of these papers? Here's a partial list:
1. The travel records of key CIA suspects in the the Kennedy
assassination, including William Harvey, Howard Hunt and David Morales.
Were they in Dallas shortly before or on Nov. 22, 1963, as evidence
2. Did Allen Dulles -- the embittered former CIA
director fired by JFK -- go to the top-secret CIA facility in northern
Virginia known as "The Farm on Nov. 22, 1963, as his own calendar
indicates? Why was he there -- despite having been pushed out of the CIA
two years earlier? With whom did he meet and speak with on the phone?
3. A tape of the William Harvey interview conducted by the Church
Committee behind closed doors on 4/10/75 -- long withheld by the CIA. By
the mid-'70s, Harvey -- a Kennedy-hater who ran the CIA's assassination
program -- suspected that he was being thrown to the wolves by the
agency to which he'd devoted his life. He might very well have had some
interesting things to say about his former colleagues.
338-page file on J. Walton Moore, the head of the CIA office in Dallas
at the time of the assassination. Moore assigned George de Mohrenschildt
-- a Russian speaking, globe-trotting oilman and CIA asset -- to
babysit Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas. This file is certain to add to the
overwhelming evidence that "the fingerprints of U.S. intelligence were
all over Oswald," as Sen. Richard Schweiker of the Church Committee
5. An 18-page dossier on Gordon McClendon, a
Dallas businessman who conferred with Jack Ruby just before he shot
Oswald. McClendon was a CIA-connected media entrepreneur who ran a
right-wing radio network in the Southwest. As Ruby was arrested, he
shouted out for McClendon.
6. Withheld -- or destroyed: Oswald's
"201" file compiled by the CIA's Office of Security, presided over by
the ghostly James Jesus Angleton. According to Judge John Tunheim,
former head of the Assassination Records Review Board, "I have no doubt
Angleton destroyed (JFK) files," when he took control of the CIA's
internal investigation of the assassination.
Despite any agency
purging and tampering that has occurred over the years, don't believe
the "experts" who are telling us there's nothing in these JFK files of
any significance. There's a reason that the CIA is still hiding this
material...because it points directly at the agency itself in the
killing of President John F. Kennedy and the coverup.
