“Oswald was under counterintelligence surveillance from 1959 to 1963,” Morley said. “Everywhere he went he touched CIA collection operations, code-named secret intelligence operations, whose product was delivered to Angleton.”

The failure of the release of the latest documents to clarify the causes of JFK’s assassination is hardly surprising.
Don’t forget that the CIA knows the contents of the documents and controls the order in which they are released.The CIA is not going to release revelatory documents first. It will release them last and then only under duress.
To the story of the CIA’s continuing cover-up, McClatchy’s Kevin Hall identifies another hole in the historical record of the assassination the JFK files of Russia, Cuba, and Mexico.
I disagree with Judge Tunheim that the Russian records are the most significant. SInce these records all date before June 1962, they cannot shed much light on the events on November 1963.
The records held by the Cuban government are much more significant, I think. They described what Cuban counterintelligence learned about what CIA-sponored anti-Castro, anti-JFK militants said in private before and after November 22, 1963. Some of these records are referenced by Fabian Escalante, retired Cuban intelligencer officer, in his book El Complot. It would be great service if the Cuban government made these records public.

Jeffmorley, thank you for this post. Its very inspiring.
I think the Mexican records may be the most important of all. If they still exist, we will be able to hear the voice of the man who was supposed to be Oswald, the woman who was supposed to be Silvia Duran, and more. We will also find out who knew what about LHO in the days during his alleged visit and in the days immediately after. Both American and Cuban records were held by the Mexican Treasury Service (DFS) and other agencies
In terms of importance of the records of other countries, I would rate Mexico #1, Cuba #2, Russia #3. France may be #4 given the games played by Angleton with French intelligence and Harvey with QJ/WIN.
The most important records we have not seen yet are the American records of military intelligence and the NSA – they make the CIA look like the ACLU.
