2) WATCH: ‘Oswald was known to a dozen senior CIA officials’

I make a strong claim about the CIA and Lee Harvey Oswald in this video. I think the new JFK files corroborate my observation. But I’d like to get independent verification, preferably from a reputable fact-checking service like Snopes.

1) Birch O’Neal: the CIA’s unknown Oswald expert

One of the most significant new JFK assassination files concerns a CIA officer you almost certainly never never heard of.

Birch O’Neal is virtually unknown in the vast literature of JFK’s assassination. He is not mentioned in the reports of the Warren Commission or the House Select Committee on Assassinations. He figures in no conspiracy theories.

A note on George H.W. Bush and the JFK story

A reader, Laura, takes issue with my recent post exculpating the late President Bush from involvement in the Kennedy assassination. Upon reflection, I think she makes two very good points.

George H. W. Bush, CIA director
George H. W. Bush, CIA director and future president

One is about the definition of evidence. Certainty is not required, it is true.

The second concerns a point I had scanted: the declassified Bush records make it clear that someone thought it important to brief George H. Bush about the Miami Cubans under investigation after JFK was killed. I should have noted this fact.

Who thought that Bush needed to know and why they thought he needed to know is an interesting and potentially important fact. I still don’t see what it tells us about the causes of the assassination but it is a salient point I should have mentioned. My conclusion was too sweeping. Thanks Laura.

Here’s Laura’s note:

Ask Nancy Pelosi: Call for Congress to Reopen Assassination Probes 

JFK
https://www.americantruthnow.org/
AmericanTruthNow.org

The Truth and Reconciliation Committee needs your help. The Committee, consisting of 60 people (including the author) are calling on Congress to re-open the investigation of the four political assassinations in the 1960s: (JFK, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy.)

CLICK HERE to read the Joint Statement.

CLICK HERE for Calls to Action.

“The consequences still haunt our nation,” says Adam Walinsky, former speechwriter for RFK.

The Committee needs you to sign a petition telling Nancy Pelosi to act.

The joint statement calls for Congress to establish firm oversight on the release of all government documents related to the Kennedy presidency and assassination, as mandated by the JFK Records Collection Act of 1992. This public transparency law has been routinely defied by the CIA and other federal agencies. The Trump White House has allowed the CIA to continue its defiance of the law, even though the JFK Records Act called for the full release of relevant documents in 2017

A group of over 60 prominent citizens aims to convene an American Truth and Reconciliation Committee to bring out the facts of the four major assassinations that changed the course of the country and the world—those of President John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Senator Robert F. Kennedy.  ​           A multi-part action plan has been set in motion, including a petition to Congress and a pubic inquest.

RIP: Harris Wofford, Aide to Kennedy and King

Wofford, who passed January 21 at the age of 94, was a lawyer and political operative close to both Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King.

What Wofford wrote in his 1980 memoir, Of Kennedy and Kings, underscores the importance of the recent open letter from MLK III, RFK Jr. and some 60 other luminaries calling for a reopening of the investigation of four most important assassinations of the 1960s.

Angleton: The role of a ‘master bureaucratic operator’ in the JFK story

I think this might be the most cogent radio interview I did about THE GHOST.

(Just because I was on Lew Rockwell’s show doesn’t mean I agree with this politics.)

Now is a good time to lay to rest the JFK conspiracy theories about George Bush

(This post was first published on the JFK Facts blog, in different form under a different headline, in March 2013)

The theory that the late President Bush was somehow complicit in JFK’s death has often been heard in the comments section of this site. Exactly how he was involved is rarely explained.

Four claims are adduced to support this theory:
