  1. I saw Oliver Stone mention that on Facebook, in a post he made about RECLAIMING PARKLAND. I’m keen to read whatever eventuates.
  2. Great, thank Joseph, will check this out. I’ll also post the link on Twitter when I get a chance. My posts and links on the files there have been gaining a surprising amount of traffic - a recently BAFTA nominated director began following me solely due to JFK stuff, which was surprising.
  3. New document release today 10,744 documents

    I wonder if they just misspelled ‘fired’. ‘Fried’ is good too though.
  4. Witten's report on Oswald in Mexico just released

    I didnt see any redactions in this version. I could be wrong. I’d never heard of Wilcott’s testimony till this morning btw. http://www.aarclibrary.org/publib/jfk/hsca/secclass/pdf/Wilcott_3-22-78.pdf
  5. New document release today 10,744 documents

    Guerrero is also mentioned in this document below (released earlier, I believe). It ends with authorities trying to ascertain if he worked at the Benjamin Franklin Library on the day of Kennedy's murder. https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/docid-32125890.pdf
  6. New document release today 10,744 documents

    Lots of FBI stuff. Didn’t see any CIA.
  7. I can’t interpret what this is and would like further comment. Denis Moricet reportedly just received this from NARA (how?). It’s a Garrison-era recording, either of Ferrie or of someone reading a Ferrie statement. Important - on YouTube, adjust the playback settings to a slightly faster playback speed, as this audio is slowed somewhat.
  8. David Ferrie interview audio from NARA?

    Okay, I see where they got it now. https://www.archives.gov/research/jfk/finding-aids/garrison-papers.html In Box 1 of the section titled - Investigative Files received from New Orleans District Attorney Harry Connick - it says 'these materials are now available to researchers'. They have quite a lot listed. I'm not sure if any of this is newly available, or just old stuff that is newly listed online however.
  9. David Ferrie interview audio from NARA?

    It turned up on Facebook today in the discussion threads of a few researchers, with someone saying they had 'just received it from NARA'. I wasn't aware NARA was receptive to dishing stuff out like this through FOIA requests or the like, so how that person acquired it is a puzzle. It's not my upload, btw. The clip I've linked is what was posted on Facebook this morning. I thought it sounded more like Garrison reading the document at first, but I've never heard Ferrie so couldn't tell. Funny stuff.
  10. The Finger Finally Points to Pentagon Chief Lemnitzer

    Gladio was a Dulles-approved project partially conceived and run by Frank Gardiner Wisner, who gets a mention in Ganser's NATO'S SECRET ARMIES as the 'architect of Gladio'. Cottrell's book, which I own, is a bit of a mess. Robin Ramsay (of the UK Lobster research site) tore Cottrell's book to pieces in his disappointed review. A lot of assertions, not enough footnotes or backup to how and where he got his data. Philip Wilan's THE PUPPETMASTERS is older, but maybe better. Jeffrey Bale's 1994 thesis on Valerio Borghese covers some of the same territory, looking at the Gladio years with him in the foreground. It's unpublished, but a PDF finally leaked online a year or two ago. Peter Dale Scott supervised Bale during the writing of it. https://www.scribd.com/document/3625...egy-of-Tension I can't remember if I've linked this here before. Foreign Service Officer Peter Bridges (later the US ambassador to Somalia), did a long oral history interview. His department head at Middlebury College in 1953 was Dimitri von Mohrenschildt, brother of George. http://www.adst.org/OH TOCs/Bridges, Peter S.toc.pdf George does pop up in some online articles about Gladio, notably these two. For the second of the two links, I'd suggest you stop reading once you get to discussion of Sibel Edmonds and 'Gladio B'. It's an unproven label for an unproven project that exists solely on her say so, and she's never given any direct evidence for it. The stuff on Gladio, however - which is documented, and proven - is useful. http://americanjudas.blogspot.com.au/2015/02/george-de-mohrenschildt-and-paines.html http://americanjudas.blogspot.com.au/2013/11/the-defense-intelligence-agency-dia.html Peter Bridges later served at various embassies, and worked for some oil companies on the side. Then Wikileaks published a leaked embassy cable a few years ago that implicated Bridges in the Gladio activities that were ongoing in Italy through the early 70's. Though he isn't mentioned in the below cable, Borghese popped up in and around the Gladio story in Italy, and the aborted Golpe Borghese government coup of December 1970 was named after him. The domestic investigations into Gladio conducted years after the event all made a point of acknowledging the role that NATO and US intelligence played in stirring things up through the period. https://www.wikileaks.org/plusd/cabl...ME03261_b.html Researchers can use the link between Gladio and the aforementioned Illinois bank to join other dots. Nixon-era Treasury secretary David Kennedy, the chairman of that bank, later testified at a criminal trial to having held a long relationship with Michele Sindona. Sindona gets a mention in Jeffrey Bale's just released book, THE DARKEST SIDE OF POLITICS - POSTWAR FASCISM, COVERT OPERATIONS, AND TERRORISM. That volume only came out a month ago, and there are no online reviews for it yet. Much of it is an expanded version of Bale's thesis above, but with substantial new details on Aginter Press and the Borghese coup. https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/business/1979/01/10/david-kennedy-testifies-to-link-with-sindona/d664e6be-46f1-4f84-bc2a-838b7cba7b07/?utm_term=.8b8ed5d29181 Frank Wisner's son - Frank G. Wisner, Jr - seems to have had a role in more recent deep events, but that's another story. Philip Willan is working on a big book on the Aldo Moro assassination, and will probably have more material on Gladio in it when it appears. He also touches on some of the players in his overlooked 2013 book THE VATICAN AT WAR, linked below. He speaks fluent Italian and lives and works among Italian researchers. I asked him a couple of years ago if any new material had appeared within the archives over there on guys like William Harvey, who were active for a period in Italy during the Gladio years. He said a few tidbits had, but not much. https://www.amazon.com/Puppetmasters-Philip-Willan-ebook/dp/B0081F82ZQ/ref=pd_sim_351_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=8MFSX0CD44KXVTBMHPH9 Some of the networks surrounding Gladio are discussed to an extent in Kruger's THE GREAT HEROIN COUP, which was reprinted in updated form a year or two ago. Peter Dale Scott did an intro for it back in the day. The original volume was published in the late 70's. The new edition was updated for 2016, quite a while later. https://www.amazon.com/Great-Heroin-Coup-Intelligence-International-ebook/dp/B01AFDYNMC/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1510697616&sr=1-1&keywords=great+heroin+coup
  11. District Attorney Jim Garrison's Case For A Conspiracy

    That comes alongside Google and Facebook reportedly de-emphasising (or worse) left wing and alternative news and journalism sites. RT, which shows lots of good stuff, is being targeted at the same time.
  12. Delay in release of records.

    Some thoughts, and a few documents of interest linked here. There is lots of redacted stuff though. I mean, lots of it. https://deeppoliticsforum.com/forums/showthread.php?16705-NARA-releases-third-JFK-document-batch-including-533-CIA-documents#.WfzzFRimNyo
  13. Delay in release of records.

    The detail about a party and possible affair is already present in the copy of the document on the Mary Ferrell site.
  14. Press release on 6 month holding period for some documents.https://www.archives.gov/press/press-releases/nr18-05October 2017 document releases. These aren't in ZIP form, but PDF's that are ready to read.https://www.archives.gov/research/jfk/2017-release Documents 'formerly withheld in full' begin appearing at the link below, but not consistently, and the October 2017 document releases conclude one page later. All later documents are from the July batch.https://www.archives.gov/research/jf...elease?page=56The documents withheld for release today seem to be nearly all of the 'formerly withheld in full' documents. There should be many, many more. Stuff like the Angleton HSCA transcript is not here.
  15. Delay in release of records.

    Some limited documents have now been released. We get a lot of stuff that previously had minor redactions. Documents previously withheld in full, are still, for the most part, being withheld in full.
  16. Trump: JFK files to be released

    Just dumb. I mean, look - Suspects, plural? If he's conceding that there's more than one potential suspect, he's conceding the whole ball game, yet his article sticks with throwing mud at 'conspiracy buffs'. Kampmark has written good things on other topics, but I'm concerned that he's going to be spouting this rubbish about the JFK assassination to his students.
  17. Trump: JFK files to be released

    Kampmark teaches at my old school in Melbourne. He's a smart guy, but not at all on this subject, and his article is idiotic. Trump just tweeted about the files again, btw. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/923277142271684609
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. We should put together a GoFundMe or Kickstarter to help buy the CIA some new printer toner for their office room.
  21. 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.
  22. It varies. I couldn't get through last night, then grabbed the first zip file a while ago.
  23. 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"
  24. 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.
  25. 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
