“Initially, the CIA was cooperating — we had no reason to think that they weren’t… [It was] when we started pushing… on investigating the disinformation efforts after the assassination, and realizing that I could tie just about every single disinformation effort directly back to David Phillips, that George Joannides gets involved.”—Dan Hardway.

Over the years, the National Security Agency has made public 373 documents related to the assassination of President Kennedy, according to an NSA Web site called the JFK Documents Index.
The CIA retains two secret files on New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, the crusading prosecutor who inspired Oliver Stone’s hit movie “JFK.”
The files–whose existence is reported here for the first time– are among the 3,600 secret U.S. government records related to JFK’s assassination that are scheduled to be released in October 2017. Earlier this week, Politico and NOLA,com reported on the existence of the 3,600 records, which was first disclosed on May 12 by JFK Facts.
The Garrison files contain 16 pages of undated and unclassified material, according to the National Archives’ online database of JFK assassination records
One file– labelled “CIA File on Garrison, James”–contains ten pages of material. The other–described as “Illegible Document, Garrison Investigation”–has six pages.
On May 12 I reported bout the 3,600 JFK-related documents that remain out of public view.
On Monday, Politico picked up on the story and added a host of new details and comments.
Yesterday the story was picked by NOLA.com, the Web site of the New Orleans Times-Picayune.
The JFK Records Act of 1992 ordered that all of the files related to the federal inquiry into John F. Kennedy’s assassination be made public in 25 years. As the October 2017 deadline nears, POLITICO takes a look at what the files might tell us -– if we actually get to see them.
Bryan Bender of Politico digs deeper into the story of the 3,600 still-secret JFK files held by the National Archives, reporting that the withheld material includes records from the FBI and the National Security Agency. And he see indications that some federal agencies will continue to seek postponement of the records’ release past their scheduled release date of October 2017.
Two weeks ago, I posted a conspiracy theory survey asking readers to choose between the competing interpretations of two JFK Facts authors:. Robert Morrow, who posits a CIA-military plot from within the U.S. government, and Phil Shenon, who suggests Lee Oswald had pro-Castro Cuban accessories.
Which conspiracy theory won?
Former CIA analyst Brian Latell says Cuban government officials were complicit in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. I have posted my take on Latell’s claims.
Here is how he made his case to me. The interview was conducted by email. I have deleted three questions for which Latell said he had no independent knowledge. Otherwise, Latell’s comments have not been edited.
The CIA has credible information implicating seven Cuban government officials in the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 1963 that it has never made public, according to Brian Latell, a retired agency analyst.
“The Kennedy assassination should be added to the agenda for official Cuban-American negotiations,” Latell recently told JFK Facts. A retired CIA employee who served as the agency’s National Intelligence Officer for Cuba from 1990 to 1994, Latell first made the allegations in his 2013 book, Castro’s Secrets. He elaborated on his views in an email interview.
Latell’s allegations come at a turning point in U.S.-Cuba relations.

I recently enjoyed speaking with Jacob Hornberger about the secrecy surrounding thousands of JFK assassination records on his DIY talk show “The Libertarian Angle.”
From Jesse Walker at Reason, a 1976 presidential campaign ad for Gerald Ford that was never aired–and for two very good reasons.
Natalie Portman has signed on to play the former first lady in a new film titled Jackie, reports Variety.
“Jackie talks about the days when Jackie Kennedy becomes an icon but has lost everything,” an insider involved in the production told the trade publication.
