  1. So, years before Baker peddled nonsense, Rocca was peddling some similar rubbish. Like others here I hope the next batch of archival releases are better.
  2. We should put together a GoFundMe or Kickstarter to help buy the CIA some new printer toner for their office room.
  3. Very annoying redaction http://documents.theblackvault.com/d...D-32271723.PDF The document titled OUTLINE - LHO, THE CIA AND MEXICO CITY is represented by just a single page, Document Withdrawal Notice, Release Delayed Pending Coordination.
  4. It varies. I couldn't get through last night, then grabbed the first zip file a while ago.
  5. I posted a few comparisons on this page at Deep Politics Forum, from the first (previously censored, now released in full) zip archive. https://deeppoliticsforum.com/forums/showthread.php?16598-National-Archives-releases-first-batch-of-2017-JFK-documents/page2#.WXaxcBimPUY Page 2 of CIA cable to Mexico 'Re Passing Info to Warren Commission' Redacted version at Mary Ferrell site is here, redactions on page 2. https://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc....eId=2&tab=page First sentence of redacted version reads 1. OUR PRESENT PLAN IN PASSING INFO TO WARREN COMMISSION IS TO ELIMINATE MENTION OF [REDACTED]. The uncensored version reads 1. OUR PRESENT PLAN IN PASSING INFO TO WARREN COMMISSION IS TO ELIMINATE MENTION OF TELEPHONE TAPS, IN ORDER TO PROTECT YOUR CONTINUING OPS. The other deletions on the page are code-names, no names are mentioned. And from the Mary Ferrell site - MEMO NO. 9 - GARRISON AND THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION http://www.maryferrell.org/showDoc.h...eId=5&tab=page Page 5 is redacted. "Martin was a [redacted] when he was a Director of International Relations and World Trade of International House in New Orleans" The uncensored version reads "Martin was a DCS contact and source in 1964 and 1965 when he was a Director of International Relations and World Trade of International House in New Orleans"
  6. The head archivist, discussing the releases in a mainstream interview a few months back, stated that the October date was a final deadline, but that they would probably start releasing some of the material in batches from the middle of the year. That said, this first batch is right on schedule.
  7. The National Archives have just released the first batch of long awaited 2017 JFK documents, with more to follow. 3810 documents have been released, 441 of those were previously withheld in full, the rest present unredacted versions of previously censored documents. The first batch comes to many gigabytes of material. I'm on a phone so can't post a link but there is a lot of stuff now awaiting the attention of researchers. JFK Facts has the story and Jeff Morley is going through documents and will update the site with info soon. It's happening folks.
  8. John Newman: Countdown to Darkness available soon

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01N7YNXQ6 I believe this means all three of the new/revised books are now up on Kindle. Volume 3 of the JFK series will be titled INTO THE STORM and will hopefully pop up sometime next year.
  9. John Newman: Countdown to Darkness available soon

    John says the Kindle version of the Vietnam book has just become available today. The link is below.
  10. John Newman: Countdown to Darkness available soon

    The new paperback edition of JFK and Vietnam is here. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/153047793X/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 John says the Kindle version of the JFK book should be appearing around the 7th or 8th of Feb.
  11. John Newman: Countdown to Darkness available soon

    The pictures referred to by Newman are here. 16300239_1282609618494808_2025301006473134618_o.jpg 16462967_1282609808494789_8411086321943486937_o.jpg
  12. John Newman: Countdown to Darkness available soon

    Three new / updated John Newman books, including COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS, are appearing on Amazon sequentially over the next few weeks. The links to all of them on Amazon will be up soon. The updated new edition of JFK AND VIETNAM is out on January 15th. John Newman posted the new preamble to the book on Facebook. I've reprinted it below. There is substantial new supplementary material in the volume. The all new COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS is out on January 25th. Noted John - "Vol II is a big surprise. Completely changed my view of Eisenhower. And the Joint Chiefs were seditious on the Bay of Pigs plan--not good." The back cover of this long awaited volume features long quotes of praise from Bill Simpich, Peter Dale Scott and others. It will be very enticing to see where John's study of the assassination is leading. The revised edition of 2015's WHERE ANGELS TREAD LIGHTLY is out on January 31st. "One substantive change in Vol I is Merton is Jack Stewart, not Phillips. Otherwise there are minor changes, a few new crypts etc." PREAMBLE TO THE 2017 EDITION OF JFK AND VIETNAM – On Amazon January 15th 2017.
  13. This long withheld document has finally been shaken loose by FOIA requests. The full document runs for 181 pages and is linked at the bottom of this post. A 'disclaimer' of sorts from CIA historian David Robarge follows. OFFICIAL HISTORY OF THE BAY OF PIGS ​DRAFT Volume V: CIA'S INTERNAL INVESTIGATION OF THE BAY OF PIGS by Jack B. Pfeiffer https://archive.org/details/CIAsInternalInvestigationOfTheBayOfPigs
  14. Book Inquiry
