    Can’t President Obama pressure the CIA to release the JFK documents?

    By refusing to release these files, the CIA are breaking the law, it is as simple as that.

    For example, how can the files of George Joannides not be assassination related when you consider his relationship with the DRE and his involvement with the HSCA?

    CIA may cite national security but this just doesnt wash after 50 years. I believe they want to conceal the truth about the assassination, whatever that truth may be.

    The CIA state they dont have the time or resources to release records related to the JFK assassination, but what is more important than the murder of an American president?

    They really should be compelled to release these records.

    In ordinary life (and in court proceedings), if someone tries to hide something, it suggests their guilt. But that’s obviously a much more complicated issue with an intelligence agency. The CIA’s natural instinct will be to disclose as little as possible about its activities, almost no matter what. It doesn’t necessarily suggest guilt.

    However, the Joannides situation does seem a little different. They didn’t just resist providing information; they secretly made a very interested party the gatekeeper. And the guy they picked was knee-deep in the Agency’s antiCastro activities, suggesting that in the late 70s, that was the activity the Agency still thought was most sensitive. To me, that’s a neon sign pointing to something interesting, still uncovered, about the Agency’s antiCastro associations and activities.

    I got this moral lecture below from some Frank Burns sort of character, angry with me for not loving my country strongly enough, accusing me of being a “negative nimbob” like Hawkeye Pierce, when I mentioned to him my complaint about CIA withholding JFK assassination documents.

    AMERICA, LAND OF THE FREE

    Thank goodness we live in the USA, and not in one of those despicable communist countries, where the government can tell the people what they can and cannot read, hear or see.
    No sir, we live in a country that is truly blessed with liberty and justice for all! As Americans, the government is owned by We the People, as Created by our Great Founders. There are no secret police, no government of despotic dictators, harboring secrets from their citizens. In the Land of the Free, undemocratic things just cannot be*!

    (*but if they did, we should think ‘happy thoughts’ like the North Koreans, and wave our flags even harder, so the bad thoughts will go away in a patriotic fervor-storm)
