After a long hiatus, the JFK Facts podcast has returned! This week Alan and I talk about the important keynote speech of Judge John Tunheim, former chair of the Assassination Records Review, at the CAPA conference in Washington last month. Tunheim talked about the JFK issues of 2017
Jefferson Morley and Alan Dale discuss the unique challenge of sifting misinformation, disinformation, and government secrecy while trying to established a rational and factual foundation of thinking about the assassination of President Kennedy.
As I recently completed writing a biography of CIA counterspy James Angleton, I am now giving renewed attention to JFK Facts: its look, its appeal, its functionality, its strengths, its weaknesses, and its mission.
As the editor of JFK Facts, I welcome your thoughts and help.
(l to r) Peter Dale Scott, Russ Baker, David Talbot, Dan Ellsberg, and Jeff Morley.
Pardon my absence. I took a vacation from blogging about JFK to finish writing a book about JFK. It was a coals-to-Newscastle type of journey, a veritable busman’s holiday that took me to northern California where I met some of my favorite people to talk about, well, you know.
Tink Thompson and I explored the Pointillism of the Zapruder film. Bill Simpich parsed some bullets for me and purchased some of the finest cocktails in the Mission. David Talbot filled me on the perfidious Allen Dulles (his book on Dulles is going to be great). Russ Baker wised me up on the American elite. And over a lovely lunch in Berkeley at Peter Dale Scott’s house, I met Dan Ellsberg for the first time.
Look at the “Breaking JFK News” column to the left and you will see proof that JFK Facts is making a difference in the JFK coverage of AP, CNN, Fox News, Detroit Free Press and other mainstream news organizations.
The recent media blitz around the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death confirmed the public’s enduring interest. The discussion of the JFK story is sure to continue through this year until at least the 50th anniversary of the Warren Report in September 2014.
With your help, we can continue to make a difference.
