Truthstream captures the rote quality of much of the recent media coverage of the JFK file release.
“There’s no smoking gun,” the logic goes, “therefore one man alone killed the president for no reason.”
If you think about it, that doesn’t really make sense. It would make just as much, if not more, sense to say: “The new evidence does nothing to refute the suspicion that JFK was killed by his enemies.”
The most important story to be found in the last of the JFK files–and it will take time for us to excavate it–concerns the CIA’s pre-assassination surveillance of the putative assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
I tell the story in broad outlines in my new book, The Ghost: The Secret Life of CIA Spymaster James Jesus Angleton.
