Jim DiEugenio has a fascinating piece about How CBS News Aided the JFK Cover up, based on the reporting of the late Roger Feinman, a CBS News employee who pushed for a serious, independent coverage of the Warren Commission report and was thwarted by his superiors who were determined to endorse the official theory of a lone gunman.
I will be appearing on Miami’s WIOD talk radio station on Tuesday April 26 from 10-11 am ET with host Fernand Amandi. We’ll discuss the Rafael Cruz theory, my forthcoming JFK ebook, and the continuing national security relevance of James Angleton. Read more
My story in The Intercept: “How the CIA Writes History.”
In response to several queries about the Rafael Cruz (father of Ted) JFK conspiracy theory, I delved into the record with the help of a faithful reader. Here’s what is known: Read more
George Will exposes one of the tricks of U.S. national security agencies use to protect themselves from embarrassment.
Documents can be kept forever secret by government agencies declaring them “drafts” or otherwise “deliberative.”
The bogus question Did Rafael Cruz Kill JFK? is being peddled by a self-described “conspiracy theorist” with no track record of credible reporting on the JFK story. It echoes on the Internet with Crooks & LIars expressing appropriate derision..
JFK Facts can set the record straight.
A few things are known for sure. First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, 34 years old and dressed in a U.S.-made knock off of a pink Chanel suit, was looking at her husband’s face with concern from inches away when a bullet shattered his head.
After that horrible moment, Jackie had to pull herself together, give Jack the funeral he deserved. She assumed that her husband’s enemies had killed him. A week after the assassination, she and her brother-in-law Robert Kennedy confided in a friend, William Walton. They said they believed Dallas was the work of a high-level domestic plot, meaning JFK’s enemies on the political right.
But mostly Jackie didn’t want to think about who killed Jack. She was close to insane with grief, clutching to her brother-in-law who was devastated as well. She was often suicidal. And so Jackie fades from the crime story. The men who dominate the discussions of JFK conspiracy theories are often united in ignoring the views of the woman closest to the crime.
Jason Leopold has the story:
The CIA’s involvement in the production of Zero Dark Thirty (effectively exchanging “insider” access for a two-hour-long torture commercial) has already been well-established, but the agency’s role in the production of Argo—which won the Best Picture Oscar for 2012—was heretofore unknown.
BBC has uneaarthed amazing footage of Soviet spy Kim Philby talking to a group of Stasi agents in East Germany his espionage against the ruling classes of the West.
The somewhat extraordinary final day of President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba was eclipsed by news of the attacks in Brussels, First there was the joint Obama-Castro news conference in which the Cuban leader actually had the novel experience of having to answer freely asked questions. Then there was the overlooked story that those notorious communist sympathizers at Google have agreed to provide the country with cheap and fast Internet, confirming fatuous Newt Gingrich’s point that President Obama is a suspected traitor, or something like that. Finally, there was a feel-good photo op: a baseball game between the Cuban national team and the Tampa Bay Rays, which Obama described accurately as, well, “somewhat extraordinary.”
