W. Tracy Parnell on Jefferson Morley

W. Tracy Parnell is one of the best JFK assassination researchers out there. His website is essential reading, and his book, The Bishop Hoax, which covers the allegations of Gaeton Fonzi about Antonio Veciana is magisterial.

Parnell has just published an FAQ about Jefferson Morley and his various allegations about George Joannides, the CIA, and Operation Northwoods.

According to a CNN article, the National Archives has concluded their review of the documents in the JFK Collection. Ninety-nine percent of the files are now publicly available with the remaining redactions representing information witheld for the "strongest possible reasons" according to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre. The remaining classified documents or redacted portions of those documents will be released "on an ongoing basis when the underlying reason for their declassification is no longer applicable."
Of course, this will not satisfy everyone, most notably conspiracy author Jefferson Morley who has been crusading for full release of the records for years. Morley is also advocating for the addition of 44 records on CIA official George Joannides to the JFK Collection so they can also be released. Despite the promise of eventual full disclosure, Morley will no doubt be criticizing Biden's actions -- UPDATE he has. He is already doubling down on his claim that there is a "smoking gun" in the Joannides files even though he has never seen them.
With this in mind, I am releasing my Jefferson Morley FAQ. The purpose of the FAQ is to "alert the news media and the public about misinformation being disseminated by Jefferson Morley regarding the November 22, 1963 assassination of US President John F. Kennedy."

I strongly recommend you read the entire FAQ and its various links:
