New files reveal the CIA spied on JFK researchers in 1995

Bill Simpich has a terrific piece at WhoWhatWhy about the new JFK files released since October 2017. One document found by Simpich jumped out at me. In 1995 the CIA asked Brazilian intelligence.

to photograph the JFK researchers and Cuban counterintelligence officers that met together in August, 1995 in Rio de Janeiro pursuant to an invitation by the Ministry of Culture.

About John Newman’s new book, ‘Countdown to Darkness’

John M. Newman, former U.S. Army intelligence analyst turned historian, has just published “Countdown to Darkness,” the second volume of his history of the JFK assassination. I’ll just say I learned how to report on the CIA and JFK from Newman 25 years ago and I’ve never stopped learning.

The book is available on Amazon, and it is important, especially as we get closer to the JFK disclosures coming in October 2017.

NatGeo’s un-journalism on JFK

The re-broadcast of National Geographic’s JFK documentary, The Lost Bullet, in Canada last weekend is another reminder of how stilted and weird the mainstream media discussion of JFK assassination is. I haven’t seen the film yet, so I won’t comment on the particulars of its thesis.

But the film’s not-terribly relevant point illuminates a curious phenomenon: how the obsession with conspiracy distorts, defines and limits the editorial vision of news organizations. It is a species of un-journalism.

Jan. 7, 1963: Under U.S. government eyes, Oswald goes to work

On Monday January 7, 1963 Lee Harvey Oswald reported to his job at Jaggars-Chiles-Stovall, a graphic arts company in Dallas, where he had started working in October 1962. He would work there through April 1963.

Oswald’s time card

At the time Oswald was quarreling with his wife and corresponding with several leftist organizations. Various agencies of the U.S. government were also keeping track of him. When Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev wondered “What really happened?” in Dallas and doubted that U.S. security forces were so “inept,” he had a point:  When it came to watching Lee Harvey Oswald, the U.S. government was not inept.

Can Zac Efron save the Warren Commission?

Hollywood heartthrob Zac Efron has joined the cast of Tom Hanks’ forthcoming JFK flick, Parkland, along with fellow A-listers Paul Giamatti and Billy Bob Thornton.

Student of the Warren Commission?

With its all-star cast and reassuring agenda, Parkland is shaping up as the feel-good event of 2013 for those who don’t want you to worry about the legacy of the American national security state. Pre-production publicity makes clear that Parkland (the hospital where JFK was declared dead) aims to breath new life into the government’s old theory that the violent removal of the liberal president from office in 1963 was a meaningless deed committed for no reason by a lunatic. Matinee message: eat your popcorn and swallow the “tragic absurdity of life.”

Is this a movie anyone really wants to see?
