What will Biden do about the last of the JFK files?

Come October 26, 2021, President BIden is going to have to make a decision about the last of the U.S. government’s secret JFK files. There’s more than 15,000 of them. Accompanied by jazz drummer, Alan Dale, host of the JFK Facts podcast, I explain what’s going to happen and when.

Gladwell’s folly: Did a Secret Service man shoot JFK?

What me worry about JFK?

No, he did not.

The “Secret Service Man Did It” theory is comic in its macabre ludicrousness. It would not be worthy of discussion, except that Bill James and Malcolm Gladwell, and now the Huffington Post, have taken it seriously.

JFK Second Shooter? New Documentary Makes Radical Claim,” the liberal site reported. The article quotes a couple of cable TV documentarians from the Reelz Channel insinuating, without evidence, that a Secret Service agent killed Kennedy. There is no comment from any historian or journalist who actually knows the record of JFK’s assassination. To date, more than 3,000 people have “liked” the HP story. I have submitted a correction without hope that it will ever be acknowledged.

I could blame Gladwell for this sorry display of public ignorance, but let’s stick to the facts: …

JFK on secrecy: ‘the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts’

“…The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it….And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment….”

President John F. Kennedy’s speech at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, New York City, April 27, 1961

 

 

H.R. Haldeman: “We would be in a position to get all the facts “

“An investigation of the Kennedy assassination was a project I suggested when I first entered the White House [in 1969]. I had always been intrigued with the conflicting theories of the assassination. Now I felt we would be in a position to get all the facts. But Nixon turned me down.”

– H.R Haldeman, chief of staff to President Richard Nixon, from his book, The Ends of Power (p. 39).

#HowtoSolveJFKin2014: If the courts don’t work….

I agree with Karl Golovin about the need for a public vigil in the case of the suppressed CIA files on JFK. Public protest is not my thing but if the courts fail then we may not have a choice. So I endorse Golovin’s call for a meeting and the Kennedy Center is as good a place at any. I’ll be there.

(Full disclosure: Golovin has some opinions about the Sept. 11 attacks that I disagree with.)

 

 

Ken O’Donnell on grassy knoll shots

“I told the FBI what I had heard [two shots from behind the grassy knoll fence], but they said it couldn’t have happened that way and that I must have been imagining things. So I testified the way they wanted me to. I just didn’t want to stir up any more pain and trouble for the family.”

– Kennedy aide Kenneth O’Donnell, quoted by House Speaker Thomas P. “Tip” O’Neill Jr. in “Man of the House,” p. 178. O’Donnell was riding in the Secret Service follow-up car with Dave Powers, who was present and told O’Neill he had the same recollection.

Who was ‘Maurice Bishop?’

Antonio Veciana

Earlier this week, we reported on a newspaper interview with former CIA agent Antonio Veciana in which he talked about JFK’s assassination and the CIA man he knew as ‘Maurice Bishop.’

From Citizens for Truth About the Kennedy Assassination, here’s the essential background on this long-standing JFK mystery that has now been clarified:

“Maurice Bishop…was David Atlee Phillips.”
