Hello,

There is a new forum that is in addition to the one on Sept 26th, which is about the false , Missile Gap story. This will be first, then they will do the already scheduled one on the Missile Gap at 5:30 p.m to 7:00 p.m.

CIA Overview of the Missile Gap

Monday, September 26, 1:00 to 4:45 p.m.

Preceding the Kennedy Library Forum on the 50th Anniversary of the Missile Gap Controversy, there will be a special CIA-sponsored conference.

In September 1961, President Kennedy was officially notified by the CIA that the United States had surpassed the Soviet Union in missiles, dispelling the notion of Soviet superiority in the arms race.

The CIA has commissioned a special report to analyze this history and is sponsoring two panels on the challenges of intelligence analysis and the implications for US policy with a former CIA Director of Intelligence, a former head of CIA's Guided Missile Task Force, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Strategy and Threat Reduction, and others. Free copies of this report, containing newly declassified documents, will be available to the public.

The second forum is:
