A friend asked Is the CIA and FBI intransigence around JFK records a lost opportunity for moving closer to closure on the Kennedy assassination story?
Absolutely. I replied:
The JFK Records Act was passed to prove that the government had nothing to hide about the assassination. The fact that 85 percent of the last tranche of records are still secret three days after the statutory deadline shows the law is not being enforced. That’s a recipe for cynicism, suspicion, and most importantly, solid evidence that CIA and FBI are hiding important JFK facts.
Jefferson's Morley compulsively readable, and deeply reported biography of CIA spymaster James Angleton is "the best book ever written about the strangest spy chief who ever lived," says Tim Weiner. From the OSS to the CIA to MKULTRA and JFK, Angleton was a ghost of American power. BUY THE GHOST NOW.
