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.
Here’s the first episode of Len Osanic’s so-far excellent JFK video series, “50 Reasons for 50 Years,” which purports to tell the story of why the Warren Commission was a “hoax.” Don’t be put off by Osanic’s Jesse Ventura-style narration, which is dramatic but not over the top.
