John McCaa of WFAA-TV in Dallas voices a common complaint: Too many JFK conspiracy theories. He’s right about one thing. There are too many conspiracy theories, most of which are wrong. But he’s otherwise uninformed.
To say, “We can’t keep a secret in this country for five minutes, let alone 50 years. Anything new has probably already leaked out,” is factually wrong.
Justice Department lawyers appeared in federal court on Monday proclaiming their intention to keep 50-year-old CIA records related to JFK’s asassination secret. As we reported earlier this morning, the Kennedy family itself has at least seven JFK records that have never seen the light of day and are now the subject of litigation.
McCaa takes the easy way out to blame “conspiracy theorists” It is the U.S. government that is to blame for not producing a credible account of the crime.
