The JFK Assassination was one of the most significant of all the incremental death blows to the US and to the Constitution. It was a coup d’état by the 1947 National Security State against the Republic. So much about the strange state of our current cryptocracy has its roots in that infamous event.
One small piece of legislation that seeks to fight this coup is the 1992 JFK Records Act, which directs the National Archives to release all government records relating to the assassination of John F. Kennedy within 25 years, to be viewable by the public at Building II in College Park, Maryland. (That is, all that are “safe” to be released, natch).
That anniversary is this Thursday, October 26th and the Donald has decided to uphold the Act, over the protestations of many in the Intelligence Community.
One of the most eagerly-awaited documents researchers are hoping to see is the never-before-released transcript “Volume 5” of testimony on Lee Harvey Oswald given by James Angleton, the CIA’s legendary chief of counterintelligence from 1954 to 1975. The CIA has maintained that this document doesn’t exist, despite records indicating they were partially released to an archivist in the ’70s. By 1997, Volume 5 had “disappeared”.
It will be interesting, among other things to see if Volume 5 is among the final set of documents to be released tomorrow.
