Rex Bradford, founder of the Mary Ferrell Foundation explains how he built built the largest online archive of JFK files.
The CIA now has until December 15, 2021 to produce the last of its JFK assassination files. As I told the Washington Post, I suspect this second delay in the legally-mandated release of the files is a “ruse.” I hope the CIA proves me wrong. In any case, we will learn more about the Agency’s intentions in six weeks. Meanwhile, although BIden’s JFK records embargo is an important development, what we have learned in recent years is just as important as what we might learn. Case in point: this new video from Vince Palamara, the JFK research community’s leading expert on the Secret Service. The video illuminates one aspect of the JFK story that the CIA is still hiding 58 years after the fact.
John Simkin writes: Mort Sahl died yesterday aged 94. Younger people might be unaware of Sahl’s connection with the JFK assassination.
This excellent video comes from the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas. Rivera, a veteran TV correspondent, made history when he broadcast Abraham Zapruder’s home movie of JFK’s assassination on national television for the first time in March 1975. Rivera reveals he took a big risk personally.
Comedian Trevor Moore has died at age 41. As this bit shows, Moore was a satirist of assassination, depicting ominous events as buffoonery, to make fun of the powerful and our media obsessions. Moore is correct that George H.W. Bush was social friends with the family of John Hinckley, the man who shot and wounded President Ronald Reagan in 1981. As Moore says in one of this thought bubbles, “Awkward!” Moore makes one factual mistake. George H. Bush was in Dallas on November 22, 1963 and he had a friendly cooperative relationship with the CIA. But it’s not accurate to say Bush was “working for the CIA” that day. He was not employed by the CIA at the time. Also: there’s no evidence that Bush was complicit or involved in Kennedy’s assassination.
Along with Rolf Mowatt-Larsen, John Newman and Dick Russell, I was interviewed extensively for this two-part show on NHK Prime, a prime-time magazine show on Japan’s public television network. Here’s how NHK presents its latest JFK story.
President Kennedy gave two speeches, on June 10 and June 11, 1963 that changed the course of American history, says historian Andrew Cohen, author of “Two Days in June.” Cohen explained what JFK wrought in a recent interview with CBC TV host Peter Mansbridge.
