What Happened to the JFK Records?

By Rex Bradford, October 30, 2017

What happened on Thursday, Oct. 26, with the JFK records scheduled for release under the JFK Records Act? A travesty.

They are off by a factor of 100. In fact, tens of thousands of documents, possibly as many as 30,000, remain sealed at the National Archives. Continue reading

SPECIAL OPS NOW DEFINES THE PENTAGON'S EXPANDING WARS By Danny Schechter

16 February 2012 — The News Dissector

New York, New York: William H McRaven is an admiral in Obama‘s Navy. He was a member of Seal Team 3, and oversaw the killing of Osama Bin Laden.

He’s the consummate Special Ops warrior and wants more special ops forces, more drones and, most significantly, more “autonomy” (read, power) to position “his” troops in more places.
