    The U.S. government considered manufacturing or obtaining Soviet aircraft in order to launch an attack on American or friendly bases that could then provide an excuse for war, according to newly released documents.The documents are part of an October release of thousands of formerly classified files related to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It describes a March 22, 1962 meeting that discussed “the question raised by the attorney general on the possibility of U.S. manufacture or acquisition of Soviet aircraft.”The meeting was held by the “Special Group (Augmented),” which according to an encyclopedia on the Central Intelligence Agency, included Attorney...

    NY Daily News ^ | November 3, 2017 | Rich Schapiro and James Fanelli
    A newly declassified FBI dossier on the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. alleges the civil rights leader had a possible lovechild and once bedded folk singer Joan Baez. The scandalous 20-page report - included in the latest document dump of files related to the JFK assassination - says that "a responsible Los Angeles individual" informed an agent that King had an affair with the wife of a prominent black dentist and may have fathered a baby girl. The individual, who was a relative of King’s paramour and had known the reverend since 1960, also accused him of having affairs with...

    The National Archives and Records Administration on Friday afternoon released hundreds more documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. This latest batch of 676 records could yield more interesting results than last week's release, as they are the ones intelligence agencies requested more time to review, citing national security concerns. President Trump urged the release of all remaining JFK documents last week. The majority of records from Friday's batch — 553 of them — are from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Those records were previously denied in their entirety, according to NARA.

    According to White House officials, Trump accepted that some of the records contained references to sensitive sources and methods used by the intelligence community and law enforcement and that declassification could harm American foreign policy interests. But after having the scope of the redactions presented to him, Trump told aides he did not believe them to be in the spirit of the law.

    ...this memo from William A. Branigan, an FBI agent who later rose to become chief of the Bureau’s counterintelligence division before he retired in 1976. Branigan’s investigative work was important; he was instrumental in investigations that led to the espionage convictions of Ethel and Julius Rosenberg, Col. Rudolph Abel and Kaarlo Tuomi, as well as working the JFK assassination. In the memo below, Branigan is passing on information to William C. Sullivan, who at the time was the head of the FBI’s domestic intelligence division. The information being passed along counts more as rumor than anything else, though perhaps with...

    The White House said Thursday that the National Archives will only partially release a final cache of documents related to the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy, as President Trump grants additional time to agencies seeking redactions.Trump is giving agencies an extra six months to review documents, using his authority to grant a waiver under 1992 legislation that established Thursday as a deadline to release nearly all of the 5 million pages of documents relating to the assassination. About 1 percent of the collection was withheld in full by a review commission in the 1990s. Another 11 percent was previously...

    President Trump has issued a memo to executive agencies ordering the release of 2,800 remaining records related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. The files are among the last to be released by the National Archives under a 1992 law that ordered the government to make all remaining documents pertaining to the assassination public. There has long been a trove of conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's death in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, including doubts about whether assassin Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone, as the Warren Commission determined in its report the following year. Other files are being...

    The remaining JFK assassination files are being released today: Thursday, October 26. Viewing these files won’t be too difficult, but it may take some time depending on just how slammed the server is. When early JFK files were released in July, the National Archives’ server was so overwhelmed that many people couldn’t get the files to download at all at first. The files were released around 7 a.m. Eastern in July, but for many the downloads didn’t start working until sometime that afternoon. So if you’re trying to get the downloads to work today and run into some problems, don’t...

    I’ve been hearing from news reporters for major news organizations, who ask, “What’s in the new JFK files? Is there a smoking gun?” The answer is no. There is no one piece of evidence in the 113,00 pages of JFK records scheduled to be released by October 26, 2017, that will change people’s minds... But the new JFK files, if released in their entirety, will fill in the two key gaps in the JFK assassination story that have long been obscured by government misconduct, official secrecy, and lazy journalism. Think of the JFK assassination story as an incomplete mosaic. The...

    Calling all conspiracy theorists! The National Archives is set to release the last remaining top-secret files about John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination, in a process that could begin by this summer. The trove of some 3,600 files, mostly from the FBI and CIA, were part of the collection assembled and sealed by the Archives, on the condition that they all be made public by October 2017. But there’s a catch: According to the same law, President Donald Trump has the ability to block the release of any or all of the documents—if he certifies that keeping them secret is a...
