In response to my semi-apology for going political in a JFK blog, Jim writes:
“I’m glad to hear you say this Jeff. I love this blog and the partisanship made me cringe. I didn’t say anything because I’m a free speech absolutist and well, it’s your blog. You can do whatever you wish with it. But in this age where politics has become so many people’s religion, it’s very exhausting that you can’t go anywhere, ANYWHERE, places you think would be politics free, without politics rearing it’s head.”
“Look at the NFL. Used to be an escape for me, and now it’s something every week. Players absolutely have the right to sit for the anthem, but for me it was a pleasurable escape and now it, like so many other institutions has been invaded by the Church of the St. Everyone I Don’t Agree With Is Hitler. Hollywood is the major example.”
“Granted, this is what Twitter refers to rightly as #FirstWorldProblems. I don’t live in Syria. My life is good. But I think this whole country needs to find some perspective and not look at his friends who voted opposite them like someone who prays with the wrong scripture at dinner. Sorry for the rant, but again, thanks for your perspective on this and thanks for all the research you’ve done.
“Can’t wait for the Angleton book. Cheers!”
“Can’t imagine a more meticulous take down of the CIA’s decades-long subterfuge surrounding the assassination.”
Jefferson Morley’s new ebook, CIA and JFK: The Secret Assassination Files, available on Amazon, provides the fullest account of the role of CIA operations officers in the events leading to the death of JFK, with a guide to what will be declassified in October 2017.
