Oliver Stone, right, with Kevin Costner on the set of ‘JFK”
Stone, 69, said his doubts about ‘Ron’ were dispelled. As a former marine in Vietnam, the film-maker was convinced by the ‘military jargon’ and intricate details within an account that he describes as ‘plausible’ and ‘very authentic’.

Unlike “JFK,” the movie,” this allegation seems uncorroborated. “Military jargon” and “authentic” details do not constitute corroboration.
Two JFK books published by The Future of Freedom Foundation are doing well on Amazon, indicative of the persistent demand for a credible explanation of the Dallas tragedy. Read more
Jacob’s responds to Dan Ellsberg’s JFK challenge: what do you want to happen when people come to an understanding of the causes of Kennedy’s death?
“Those who make peaceful revolution impossible make violent revolution inevitable:”
In this well-edited YouTube piece, Eytmon reminds us that President Kennedy was a “dove,” a leader more inclined to restrain U.S. military power than to unleash it. While JFK was often aggressive in rhetoric, he also emphasized peace was “necessary and rational.” It was his experience as a Navy lieutenant in World War II who repeatedly faced death in battle that made the cause of peace personally urgent to him. It also distinguished him from the hawks of his day
Joannides, now deceased, was an undercover CIA officer, whose actions provides strong evidence that certain Agency personnel manipulated Lee Harvey Oswald for propaganda purposes before and after President Kennedy was shot dead in Dallas on November 22, 1963.
“In the aftermath of Edward Snowden’s disclosures, public debate largely focused on balancing personal privacy and national security interests as they relate to governmental collection of communications data. While this approach is fruitful, it consumes so much attention that it inadvertently overshadows a fundamental question: who authorized the government’s wide-reaching national security policies and who oversees and reviews their implementation?”

Peter Dale Scott
Alan Dale, moderator of JFK Essentials forum, had been conducting conversations with JFK authors, including me. But the one I’m most interested in hearing is Dale’s interview of Professor Peter Dale Scott, the author of “Deep Politics and the Death of JFK,” among many other books.
I don’t always agree with Scott — his ideas about the Sept. 11 attacks strike me as more imaginative than credible — but he is a formidable intellect whose provocative writings and deep research on JFK and the national security state are have taught me a lot.
Listen to Dale’s interview with Scott.
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.”
Kerry McCarthy, the daughter of President Kennedy’s sister, spoke at the JFK Lancer conference in November 2013, and I was lucky enough to be there.

I’ve been remiss in keeping up with posts on the serialization of Bill Simpich’s remarkable book “State Secret,” now available for free at the Mary Ferrell Foundation website.
“State Secret” tells the story of Lee Harvey Oswald in Mexico City in October 1963 in unprecedented detail and clarity. I told this story, as it was seen through the eyes of station chief Win Scott, in my book, “Our Man in Mexico.” But I can see now that my account, while not wrong, is simplistic. Using documents declassified after I wrote my book, Simpich shows there was rather more going on than I knew.
The Obama administration isn’t asking you to “friend” the Facebook page of the National Security Agency. They don’t offer that option for some reason. We, the customers of NSA, as it were, are not happy about this. We would like the option to “friend” NSA.
Fortunately, you can still “Like” NSA and so you should now. This is the way to express your fealty to Big Brother, just like they did in George Orwell’s “1984.” Honor NSA for capturing your metadata and putting it to good use in programming a drone to wipe out a wedding party on the other side of the planet. It wasn’t your wedding, so don’t worry about it. Just be a pal to the surveillance state.Do the right thing. “Like” NSA.
Echoing a post in JFK Facts last week, UNREDACTED, the blog of the non-profit National Security Archive, has called for prioritizing the declassification of more than 1,100 CIA documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy that are still kept secret by the CIA.
Blogger Nate Jones notes that the National Archives has recently “asked for suggestions for which documents 25 years and younger and 25 years and older should be declassified.”
The son of Robert F. Kennedy and nephew of President John F. Kennedy writes in the current issue of Rolling Stone:
“And today, JFK’s great concerns seem more relevant than ever: the dangers of nuclear proliferation, the notion that empire is inconsistent with a republic and that corporate domination of our democracy at home is the partner of imperial policies abroad.”
