The backlash continues. Trump’s much ballyhooed release of JFK files is drawing more criticism for being late and incomplete.
“I just don’t think there is anything in these records that require keeping them secret now,” John Tunheim, who from 1992 to 1998 chaired a congressionally established board that reviewed all the files on the assassination, told POLITICO in a telephone interview Friday. He is now a U.S. district judge in Minnesota.
The law is quite explicit about President Trump’s responsibilities today. With each passing hour, he is in danger failing to see that the law on JFK records are faithfully executed.
The JFK Records Act
The long-awaited JFK document release has still not happened. Knowledgable sources are saying that the documents may not be posted today, at least not all of them. That would be a plain violation of the JFK Records Act.
Somebody asked me other day, “What happened to the documentary film project ‘The Parkland Doctors?” Read more
“It was my understanding that she wanted all the information released,” Hill tells PEOPLE. “She wanted people to have as much information about what actually happened as possible.”
John McAdams used to be considered an authority on the JFK assassination by some news reporters. His integrity and veracity are now defunct.
In a staff-written piece, Politico’s Challenge to JFK Orthodoxy That Isn’t WhoWhatWhy alleges that Politico’s recent piece on the new JFK files is “disinformation.”
I agree with WhoWhatWhy that the Politico story is politically convenient and factually incomplete, but I reject the claim that it is “disinformation.”
The National Archives’ long-awaited release of JFK assassination files, which began on Monday, has some holes in it.
At least 12 CIA documents that were supposed to be released online Monday are still in the possession of the Agency, according to the Archives.
Among the missing documents are ten pages of notes on the FBI/Army Intelligence file of Tony Cuesta, an anti-Castro militant who implicated a Cuban exile marksman in the assassination of JFK.
The CIA also retains a 47-page file on Cuesta, which is supposed to be released this year, according to the National Archives online database.
The omission of the Cuesta file and 11 other documents from this week’s release was inadvertent, according to archivist James Mathis.
In an email to JFK Facts, Mathis wrote.
In a lawsuit filed Wednesday in Washington, D.C. federal court, Hardway, Lopez and Blakey say they filed a Freedom of Information Act request in May, requesting “201 files” or “soft files” on themselves.201s are a set of documents held by the U.S government on members of the government or military. The file usually contains information describing a person’s military and civilian education history, and can also include personal details like home records or records of awards the person has received.
How exactly can I start downloading these files and reading them? Are the files themselves online for us to download and read without payng and ordering them from the National Archives?
On the 50th anniversary of the attack on the USS Liberty on June 8,1967, people wonder how could the United States let the deaths of 34 servicemen go unpunished.
“The next day, the CIA produced its first analysis, which exonerated the Israelis. The paper concluded, erroneously, that there was ‘little doubt that the Israelis failed to identify the Liberty as a U.S. ship before or during the attack.” The Liberty “could easily have been mistaken” for El Quesir,” the memo asserted, a claim that the U.S. Navy would soon repudiate. The report was ‘compiled from all available sources,’ probably by [James] Angleton, the Israeli desk officer.”
Monica Mercedes Pérez Jiménez is the daughter of a Venezuelan dictator and Marita Lorentz, a former mistress of Fidel Castro who became a CIA spy.
She recent told her story to The Tico Times in Costa Rica where she lives There are problems with the story her mother told JFK investigators in 1978 but there is no doubt that Lorentz was involved in CIA covert operations in the early 1960s.
