The 5 Most Amazing Documents From The JFK Files

11/05/201717 Comments

OK, the dust has settled on the “release” of the JFK files last week, and here’s what we know so far:

As expected, the release is not a full release by any stretch of the imagination, despite Trump’s tweets to the contrary. As I pointed out in the most recent edition of New World Next Week, if Trump had done absolutely nothing this week, then the records would have been released as scheduled. But instead, he gave a green light for agencies to withhold documents that they suddenly realized (after 25 years of preparation) need further redaction. As a result, just 2% of the documents that were previously withheld-in-full were released, along with less than 10% of the redacted documents. (Is there really anyone left who doesn’t realize that Trump is fighting to save the deep state?)

Also as expected (and as predicted by yours truly months ago), the release contains “revelations” about Oswald’s contact with the Russkies that throw a new “How Much Did Those Dastardly Russians REALLY Know?” lifeline to the Oswald lone wolf fairy tale that has long been abandoned by the public. Accordingly, expect much more pontificating about the Mexico City trip and other elements of the Oswald fiction from the MSM talking-head class as we approach the assassination anniversary later this month.

In addition, we’ve seen other distractions and previously-released documents and hoaxes being revived along with the public’s renewed interest in the assassination. Someone sent me the McCone-Rowley memo, portraying it as a “new document” from the recent release and not a decade-old long-discredited hoax. The “CIA photograph of Hitler in 1954” that’s making the rounds right now has, as my New World Next Week co-host James Evan Pilato points out, been available for months now.

Indeed, JFK assassination research has become such an arcane and specialized field that even the most honest and well-meaning of researchers can get tripped up misinterpreting a key document or falling for an old hoax. That’s why I set The Corbett Report community the task of trawling through the JFK Files archives in an open source investigation earlier this week. After all, thousands of heads are better than one.

There’s still much more work to be done, but here are five of the most interesting documents that we’ve uncovered so far…
