As I wrote in today’s Miami Herald…..
But when the Biden White House announced late in the evening of Oct. 22 that the last of the JFK documents would not be released until December 2022 at the earliest, I began to rethink my caution

I’ve studied this crime since I was in high school. I was 13 the day JFK was murdered. I’ve read, researched and perused assassination information for almost 6 decades. I’m convinced beyond any doubt that elements of the CIA plotted JFK’s assassination and that hard core anti-Castro exiles were the shooters. I’ve just finished reading the great Larry Hancock’s most recent work on the subject, “Tipping Point.” As with his previous work, “Someone Would Have Talked,” it is a revelation. The climactic chapter, entitled “The Conspiracy,” is probably as close to what actually happened as we’ll ever know. If another 60 years pass the Government/CIA/FBI will never allow the whole truth to be made public. It’s the greatest state crime in American history. It must never be revealed.
Jeff – The talking points for POTUS within the linked document from 1975 speak to how the National Security Council can influence the actions taken by the President. It seems that President Ford experienced similar disclosure challenges that President Biden may be facing today.
This is exactly right. It’s not a single page or even single document that would be a smoking gun. It’s a combination of documents. The mosaic has been painstakingly pieced together by researchers and investigators whose work over these decades can only be called astounding. Those of us who woke up to the importance of this issue much later owe a debt of gratitude to all these researchers and writers (who are really historians to be more accurate), because the pieces of the mosaic that are still concealed mean so much more to these historians than to those who are relatively unschooled. We’re the beneficiaries of all that work already done by others.
The killing of a President is an act of treason. Dr. Robert McClelland observed JFK’s wounds and stated the head wound was the result of a bullet from the front. Lee Harvey Oswald, in the Texas School Depository Building was behind the limousine. Therefore, this remains an open murder investigation, if the DOJ were doing their job. The Warren Commision report was a novel, attempting to make the bullet wounds “fit” the lone gunman scenario. Fifty eight years later, this fabrication is crumbling. The foundation of our democracy is currently at risk, in part due to the falsification surrounding of the events of 11/22/63 and the failure of us to recognize and address gender and racial inequality, as contained in the Constitution. Are we truly a “House of Cards?” There seems to be a mountain of rectification necessary if we are to achieve 300 years as a democracy. I won’t accept the alternative.
The JFK act was passed in 92 , why would there be any delay ? If the findings of the Warren Com. were accurate , over a half century later and most involved are taking dirt naps what would stop any release ? If the truth of the assassination was a lone nut , why not prove it ? Turn on the lights and watch the cockroaches scurry
To understand the C.I.A. reason for not releasing the files,I believe we have to think out of the J.F.K. box
Because all this investigating had to lead to the happenings of other crimes. Some of the files probably have information on Jimmy Hoffas part.Some of the files probably contain info on Robert Kennedy,Malcolm X, and last but not least M.L.K.. I believe all the presidents reason for not releasing the files is it would piss citizens off so bad there would still 58 yrs later be rioting in the streets in every major city. Looting like never before. ESPECIALLY if there is serious info on M.L.K.. The truth is they are chicken shit to release the files and the truth is what we need to do to get the files released is all concerned citizens should organize a million person march on Washington to show were fed up with waiting for the release.Im not calling for riots.Just one of M.L.K.s peaceful protest on Washington would do it. It would bring closure to all these assisanations victims. Then and then only will all people of every color and race be united.United We Can Stand.But Devided We Will All FALL.
Jeff, Your article is excellent and right on point. Thank you for continuing to provide the public with the facts in a transparent manner. Keep up the great work, as the Truth is within reach. Jeff
