The question at the heart of this book concerns 2017 as much as 1963.

If the United States could survive the release of the Snowden documents, it can withstand the release of the JFK assassination records.
Here’s spot-on Jacob Hornberger vis a vis Bernie Sanders and the state of the national security state in the 2016 campaign
as interesting as Sanders’ position was in the 1970s, what is arguably more interesting is the response to the Politico article by a man named Jeremy Bash, who currently serves an adviser to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
I recently enjoyed speaking with Jacob Hornberger about the secrecy surrounding thousands of JFK assassination records on his DIY talk show “The Libertarian Angle.”
In a new piece JFK and the Cuban Embargo, Jacob Hornberger connects Obama’s Cuba diplomacy to JFK’s Cuba diplomacy of 50 years ago:
“Already, we’re hearing that President Obama is a traitor, that he is surrendering America to Fidel Castro and the communists, and betraying the Cuban people and the cause of freedom and democracy for wanting to lift the 54-year-old Cold War-era U.S. embargo against Cuba.”
“That is precisely the way that the national-security establishment felt about Kennedy and actually much worse.”
As Jacob Hornberger notes in his blog for The Future of Freedom Foundation, this very basic question about the assassination of President Kennedy cannot be answered in 2013 — thanks to the Agency’s obfuscations, based on far-fetched claims of “national security.”
Throughout 2013, I reported on the latest developments in Morley v. CIA, my long-running Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for the JFK files of deceased CIA operative George Joannides,
Picked up by dozens of news organizations, the Joannides story was one of three 2013 journalistic scoops from JFK Facts that made national news.
In my coverage I explained why I filed the lawsuit, recounted the Feb. 25 hearing before U.S. Court of Appeals, and reported on the appellate court’s favorable ruling in June. In November, I revealed that the CIAacknowledged for the first time in a court filing that Joannides maintained a residence in New Orleans while serving as the chief of the psychological warfare branch of the CIA’s MIami station in 1963-64.
At the Future of Freedom Foundation blog, Jacob Hornberger reports on last weekend’s conference in Pittsburgh.
