Asked in 1992 what he expected to find in still-closed JFK records, Judge replied,
“What’s more important is the principle that this public information and it belongs to us, the people of the United States and not to some secret government or intelligence network or any president or any Congress who are merely hired by us to do our bidding.”
Twenty-two years later, John’s principle has yet to be vindicated with the CIA still withholding files that are obviously relevant to JFK’s assassination. (Here are seven examples of what John was talking about.)
John, a founder of the Committee to Open the Archives and the Committee on Political Assassinations, died on April 15, 2014, in Washington DC. He is mourned by friends and adversaries alike in the JFK wars for his dedication, dignity, and knowledge he brought to the cause of full disclosure and historical truth.
