Oliver Stone on Trump and JFK

Oliver Stone on the still-secret JFK files that are supposed to be released in October 2021: Stone believes that no US president since Kennedy died has been “able to go up against this militarised sector of our economy”. Even Trump “backed down at the last second” and declined to release all the relevant documents relating to the assassination. “He announced, ‘I’m going to free it up, blah blah blah, big talk, and then a few hours before, he caved to CIA National Security again.” Stone is absolutely correct on this point.

Why CIA Ties Were Omitted from Obituaries of Priscilla Johnson McMillan

My fellow JFK researchers note lugubriously that the New York Times and Washington Post obituaries of the late Priscilla Johnson McMillan, prominent defender of the official theory of JFK’s assassination, made no mention of her documented relationship with the CIA. Too true! Newly declassified records reveal what McMillan (and the newspapers of record) did not care to share publicly. At the time McMillan wrote an influential biography of supposed assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, she was a “witting collaborator” with the clandestine service. Before I go on, let me just say, tediously, no, I do not think McMillan was part of a plot to kill JFK. No, I am not citing her CIA ties to justify any theory of JFK’s death. No, I’m not speaking ill of the dead; citing a relationship that she herself cultivated cannot be considered derogatory.

Oliver Stone’s Coming JFK Documentary

Oliver Stone has done what, curiously enough, no major new organization or documentary filmmaker has done: try to make sense of the totality of information about the assassination of JFK made public since the 1990s. A huge amount of new material has come into the public record but no one has attempted to put the new information in the context of the old, a basic journalistic function taken up by Hollywood director. Oliver interviewed me for this documentary, which I have not seen. It was an intense session with a knowledgable interrogator. I spoke in detail about what I learned about CIA operations around Lee Harvey Oswald, while writing my books, Our Man in Mexico, The Ghost, and Morley v. CIA Using the records released since the 1990s, my books show Oswald as he appeared in the eyes of senior CIA officers like Mexico City Station chief Win Scott and Counterintelligence chief Jim Angleon. These files show how Oswald became a person of interest to CIA mole hunters in a secret office known as the Special Investigations group; how he was monitored in Dallas by the Agency’s Domestic Contacts Division, and how he was publicly linked to the Castro government by CIA agents in a psychological warfare program known as AMSPELL. I’m looking forward to seeing how Oliver incorporates these revelations into his narrative.

Morley v. CIA in Review

James DiEugenio has published a lucid review of my ebook, Morley v. CIA. It starts like this: Recognizing the significant contributions to JFK research made by mainstream journalist Jefferson Morley, Jim DiEugenio reviews his recent e-book, Morley v. CIA: My Unfinished JFK Investigation, and traces the history of George Joannides involvement with the CIA and the DRE dating back to the time of the JFK assassination and beyond. —Kennedys and King DiEugenio picks up on a couple of points that I think are key to the JFK story in 2021.

Stolley, an editor at Life magazine, played a key role. JFK Facts editor Peter Voskamp interviewed Richard Stolley for this site in 2014. Here’s their conversation.

The author of 1967’s “Six Second in Dallas,” Thompson has now updated that classic with new research, corrections, and his revised conclusions about the crossfire that killed President Kennedy. When it comes to new books about JFK’s assassination, Dale says, “Unquestionably the biggest news is the publication of “Last Second in Dallas.” You can buy Last Second in Dallas, published by the University Press of Kansas here.   .
