CIA Continues to Conceal JFK Assassination Files. But Here’s What We Do Know

The delay struck me — and University of Texas Professor James Galbraith, among others — as a smoking gun in itself. The CIA’s slow-walking tactics are not quite definitive proof of a JFK conspiracy. They do, however, demonstrate that the CIA does not intend to obey a law concerning the assassination of a sitting American president.
The most plausible explanation of the CIA’s six-decade long history of deception, deceit and delay about assassination-related records is the desire to hide embarrassment or malfeasance. If nothing else, Biden’s order on the JFK files indicates that the CIA has a JFK problem: the clandestine service today cannot afford full disclosure about what happened in Dallas a long time ago.
To be sure, there are other possible explanations. Mark Zaid, a leading national security attorney in Washington, suggests that the CIA is hiding legitimate non-JFK secrets. This is possible, if not probable. But the CIA, facing a deadline set by President Trump in October 2017, released no JFK documents of any kind, basically saying, “the COVID dog ate my homework.” You don’t have to be a conspiracy theorist to wonder if non-JFK secrets is all they are withholding.
In fact, JFK researchers know something about what the CIA is hiding. Most of the still-secret JFK files have been partially declassified. In some documents only a paragraph, sentence or single word remains secret. From context we can deduce much about what is still hidden. A redacted 123-page CIA file on Watergate burglar Howard Hunt, released in April 2018, for example, may shed light on what President Richard Nixon called “the whole Bay of Pigs thing.” Nixon used this phrase as a coded reference to JFK’s assassination, according to his chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman. The Hunt file lends credence to Haldeman’s claim.

We are an arrogant species, believing our fantasy based "facts" are better than the other person's fake facts.
The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.

Watergate, for example… the so-called “plumbers” were supervised by E. Howard Hunt – who was actually arrested (alone with Frank Sturgis) in Dallas at the grassy knoll, but released after the Oswald narrative took over the case. Some of the “plumbers” themselves were Miami Cubans who had also been part of the ACTUAL failed “Bay of Pigs thing”. And then there’s the whole Jack Ruby thing…. who Nixon had known since the 1940s and was known to hang with Tricky Dick and his pal Prescott Bush on occasion…..
Yeah… that’s him, between Bush & Nixon in the background. Jack also had ties to the Chicago mob, who had ties to the Cuban mob. Just a coincidence of course….
And Tricky Dicky himself was actually in Dallas on 11/22/63. Though he’s got a reasonable alibi.. he was at a Pepsi board meeting at the time of the assassination. Pepsi, oddly enough, used to buy a lot of sugar from a plantation in Cuba which was owned by Prescott Bush & his father in law, Herbie Walker. Until Castro nationalized the plantations, of course.
So could all of this have started with a personal grudge from the Bush Crime Family??
