Among the first three documents on the list of those still-secret JFK Assassination records is: “178-10004-10394 McIlvain Tape 75′ Rock (Duplicate).”

In a post for JFKCountercoup2: Judd McIlvain – TV Reporter Subject of Secret JFK File, Bill Kelly explains who McIlvain was.

    What on earth could he have testified about that remains secret?

  2. DG Michael says:

    I read the Kelly link and unless I overlooked it, I don’t see anything in that article that’s even remotely related to the JFK murder.

    • Ronnie Wayne says:

      That’s not the point. You or I neither one have seen the comment’s in questionin. It’s what’s in the withheld information that might be important.

  3. Bogman says:

    That is a strange one. How can the govt hold on to an interview with a media person? Isn’t that an infringement on freedom of the press? Wonder what McIlvain ever said about it.

  4. There are other Mcilvain docs that are open and it appears the transcript of this is available -,which appears to be the case with many of these records. I am preparing a preliminary analysis of the entire list of withheld records and the issues it presents that I will be posting soon.

    Also note that I posted that at JFKCountercoup2 – my backup blog where I post important information that I generally refer to in articles I post at my primary blog – JFKCountercoup –

    Also note that John Barron – who wrote the book on the KGB and popularized the term “disinformation” came out of the same journalism school – and he may have gotten mixed up with Mockingbird or was one of David Phillips assets.

    We have a new resource. Let’s demonstrate it with an example.

    Those interested to know the destiny of the Mc Ilvain tapes should download this spreadsheet:

    http://jfknumbers.org/~ramon/jfk/FOIA-Subtotals-by-Agency.xlsx

    Next, they should perform a search (“within workbook” option) for RIF No. 178-10004-10394.

    The result will be the Agency, page and line number in the list recently released by FOIA:

    The National Archives claim to have released 3,603 record numbers. Brian Bender says the number is 3,063.

    The real number is 3,568.
