It is true that Malcolm Blunt has a copy of the manuscript and made it available to Larry Hancock and Jeff Morley.

If Larry sees this, I would ask if this manuscript has seen greater availability since 2008?

I know portions of it have been circulated on the internet periodically, as Bill noted all this seems to go in cycles. I don't know that I ever posted it myself, my impression was that what is available could either have been drafted for a book or very possibly for a TV or media program...at about that time Phillips was pursing the possibility of a TV series on the CIA like the one on the FBI.  One of the things folks miss is that Phillips actually wrote several books, not just Nightwatch.  I recommend reading them as they give a lot more insight into his thoughts and attitudes at different points in time.

Honestly I didn't think anyone would ever take the few pages he drafted on this as any sort of confession....Phillips loved mind games though, its not out of reason that he was just playing with JFK conspiracy folks...
