What does NSA know about JFK?

Over the years, the National Security Agency has made public 373 documents related to the assassination of President Kennedy, according to an NSA Web site called the JFK Documents Index.

NSA also has an unknown number of JFK documents, never released, that are scheduled to be made public in October 2017, according to Martha Murphy of the National; Archives.

What’s the most interesting document in the NSA collection? Send me your thoughts.

  1. Director, National Security Agency from 1962 to 1965 (which means he was DIRNSA both at the time of the JFK assassination and at the time of the Tonkin Gulf incident) was Air Force Lt. Gen. Gordon Blake.

    1. Lots of information about NSA at the time of the JFK assassination here: http://educationforum.ipbhost.com/index.php?showtopic=3561&page=3

      Perhaps most interestingly, the John Hurt whom Oswald tried to phone the night of the assassination was not only employed at NSA. He had a long and illustrious career there, as one of the original five-man team that linguist and codebreaker William Friedman put together in 1930. Hurt was fluent in Russian. But, since he was apparently in the codebreaking part of the house at NSA, it is interesting that he would have had any connection with an operative like Oswald.

  2. Roy W Kornbluth

    Most interesting document in NSA collection? For the most bizarre one, #358: speculation that Cuba may have been involved in the totally peaceful coup in Zanzibar Islands, which was practically concurrent with the assassination. (?!!) But then, 2nd page, they note that the outgoing governor was a socialist, friendly with Cuba, Syria, and Egypt, the new wellsprings of Arab nationalism.

    80,92: Deriding Syrian claims that Zionists were involved.

    93: the brutal search of Sylvia Duran’s apartment in M.C.

    81, 82, and many others: Cubans and their reactions and reactions to their reactions. A lot of concern about Cuba in these 373 documents. Anything but the heart of the matter.

    Happy 98th birthday, President Kennedy

    1. Roy Kornbluth: “The Strategy of Peace” by Senator John F. Kennedy, edited by Allan Nevins. Great source material. Kennedy’s speeches on the Middle East are so very forward thinking in stark contrast to his successors. Related to assassination research, I wonder if Cuba and Vietnam distracted attention from the Middle East and the possibility that Kennedy’s predictive policies might have threatened the more global, pragmatic agenda of the Deep State.
