Since I last checked three weeks ago, more than 50 more people have signed the petition calling on the Obama administration to do its job and enforce the JFK Records Act by ordering the review and release of 1,100 CIA documents related to JFK’s assassination.
“This has been important to me since the summer of 1964,” wrote Theresa Mauro of Culver City, California, “when the Warren Commission Lie tried to pass off those stick figure drawings of the bullet’s trajectory, and I got this chilling feeling that I was being lied to by the Government of the United States, which was supposed to be guiding and protecting me.”
Thanks to the National Archives, we know specific details about
these records which indicate they are historically significant. Writing in Salon earlier this year, I described these files as “the Holy Grail” of JFK researchers. They include files on CIA officers such as David Phillips, Anne Goodpasture and Birch O’Neal who were familiar with the travels, politics and intentions of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald before President Kennedy was killed.
