President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave., NW
Washington, D.C. 20500
Dear President Obama,
On this Veterans Day, I am writing to again encourage your action to direct immediate release
by all government agencies, most notably the CIA, of voluminous and still-withheld records
pertaining to the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy. Evidence readily demonstrates Lee
Harvey Oswald - as described in his own words - was indeed merely the designated patsy in a
choreographed sequence of events involving cooperation (a conspiracy) among highly placed
personnel in military/intelligence and other governmental positions. In retrospect, it is clear that
President Kennedy had begun to pursue a strategy of peaceful engagement with the Soviet
Union, likely viewed by some as a threat to U.S. National Security interests (as if the coup that
occurred on November 22, 1963 - and the subsequent coverup - havent been equally or more
destructive). As some now asserting political leadership seem intent on renewing tensions and
even open conflict with Russia, honoring veterans and seeking to avoid unnecessary, avoidable
future wars requires transparency on the historical record of JFKs assassination.
Please ask your staff for a briefing regarding on the record statements made by former CIA/
National Photographic Interpretation Center (NPIC) Chief Information Officer Dino Brugioni
(considered even in retirement the worlds foremost imagery intelligence analyst) to Douglas P.
Horne, Chief Analyst for Military Records of the Assassination Records Review Board (the
ARRB - dissolved after 4 years in 1998). Interviews of Mr. Brugioni and related evidence
demonstrate that within barely 24 hours after JFKs murder, skilled personnel employing CIAs
state-of-the-art, Rocheseter, New York Hawkeyeworks lab created an altered version of The
Zapruder Film, minimizing the visual evidence that one or more shots struck President Kennedy
from the front, causing wounds that included a baseball-sized exit hole in the back of President
Kennedys head, as is the testimony of literally every attending physician from Dallas Parkland
Hospital - and others. To this day, Americans thinking theyve pondered the truth by viewing
excerpts of the publicly available, altered version of The Zapruder Film have only seen, at
best, a limited hangout of events, partially but not fully revealing how contrived is the lone
gunman lie-theory quickly imposed on a distraught America and world via The Warren Report.

Testimony in a 1985 Miami federal trial - never publicized by mainstream media - implicated E.
Howard Hunt, Frank Sturgis, and other CIA personnel in the assassination (see Plausible Denial
and Last Word by Mark Lane). Before dying in 2007, Hunt taped his own confession - thin on
details of self-described 'benchwarmer' status in the plot - yet implicating the involvement of not
only Sturgis, but other CIA figures, including William King Harvey, David Sanchez Morales, and
David Atlee Phillips. How can the CIA be permitted to further delay releasing operational or
other records of those who have confessed or been so implicated in President Kennedy's murder?
"'National Security?' No - National Security requires genuine unraveling of lies that have been
perpetuated for more than 50 years via The Warren Report; even reining in CIA to its original,
intelligence-only mandate - terminating its operational duties - as recommended a month after
JFK's murder by the man who signed into law establishment of the CIA, President Harry
Truman. Trying to make the world a better place by just killing all the right people, as seems the
objective of CIA operational functions, obviously hasn't worked so well. The founders were
wise to agree, as reflected in the U.S. Constitution, that Congress, the peoples' collective
representation - not just a president, or CIA - must declare war prior to unleashing acts of war,
like assassinations and destructive interference in the internal affairs of other countries. We have
traveled far in the wrong direction since JFK's assassination; it's time to correct our direction.
Every November 22nd for over 50 years, Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas has been the primary,
almost exclusive focal point for gatherings in remembrance of JFK's assassination. As a
touchstone, a place for reflecting on the nature and conduct of evil - the violence and lies which
constitute, surround and protect it - nothing can substitute for standing once, twice, even a dozen
or more times in that place. Yet among important truths that have emerged from the intense,
prolonged focus of activists and researchers upon what happened both to President Kennedy and
the subsequent political direction of our country, is that all roads indeed lead back to Rome - or
at least the New Rome, Washington, D.C. It is here that the Central Intelligence Agency and
other entities continue withholding from public scrutiny records that, especially if one believes
the Warren Commissions official theories of non-conspiracy (Oswald acted alone; Ruby acted
alone); it defies explanation either that such voluminous records exist, or that fifty years later
any of their content must remain hidden in darkness. Our nations capitol is the single place
where political pressure can and must be brought to bear for real transparency to ever be
achieved regarding not only JFK's murder, but to inform and guide the future of our country.
Formally named "The John F. Kennedy Memorial Center for the Performing Arts" and located at
2700 F Street, NW, Washington, D.C. 20566, "The Kennedy Center" is self-described on its own
website as "America's living memorial to President Kennedy." The Kennedy Center thus exists to
be more than just a place for experiencing and celebrating among the finest artists and
productions of entertainment mankind has ever known.
Since November 22, 2013, a precedent has been established - and even well received by The
Kennedy Center's staff and local media - that the public terraces of this building are a most
appropriate place for gathering in memory of John F. Kennedy every November 22nd (and May
29th, JFK's birthday), peaceably assembling and petitioning merely by one's presence for: 1)

Immediate, un-redacted release of all still withheld assassination-related records; 2) Reining in

the CIA to its original, intelligence-only mandate; 3) Ending the intimidation of official secrecy
and the violence it perpetuates, necessary to achieve real transparency in governments
This November 22nd at 12 noon, whether a few or many assemble, John F. Kennedy will be
remembered on public terraces of The Kennedy Center. It is expected that a simple, wooden
"soapbox" will be available upon which any in attendance may stand and briefly speak, honoring
JFK's legacy in thoughtful reflection and with hope for the future. And whether on this or some
November 22nd (or May 29th) yet to come, those gathered may then elect to disperse and
elsewhere reassemble, in the most Constitutional of manners, furthering their petition for redress
of cited grievances - perhaps at the White House, the Capitol, or even just off the George
Washington Memorial Parkway, at CIA Headquarters. "Civil Obedience, peaceably assembling
in petition for redress of grievances, as provided by the U.S. Constitution, may thus prove
Americas best hope for revealing the entire truth, as has not yet - but must be - achieved
regarding JFK's murder. Your commitment to transparency of government would be well-served
by your publicly acknowledging - or even joining in - this assembly.
JFK said, "A man may die, nations may rise and fall, but an idea lives on." And yet, "One person
can make a difference, and everyone should try." Honoring JFK by assembling, in increasing
numbers on this and subsequent anniversaries, upon public terraces of The Kennedy Center, will
positively, even overwhelmingly influence timely and real transparency concerning not only
records of JFKs assassination, but the overall conduct of governmental affairs in our nations
capitol - and beyond.
I am sending copies of this correspondence to: Ms. Deborah F. Rutter, President of The Kennedy
Center; Washington, D.C.s Mayor Vincent Gray (and Mayor-elect Muriel Bowser); Chief Cathy
L. Lanier, Metropolitan Police Department; Robert MacLean, Acting Chief, United States Park
Police. This will ensure all are fully aware of the JFK Vigil occurring this November 22nd on
public terraces of The Kennedy Center, that the Constitutional rights of assembly and petition
may be well respected and exercised that day, indeed providing you with encouragement and
visible support to accomplish prompt and full transparency of records associated with President
Kennedys assassination, yet still withheld from public scrutiny.

Testimony in a 1985 Miami federal trial implicated
CIA/Bay-of-Pigs veterans in JFK's murder, including
Watergate convict E. Howard Hunt, who confessed
involvement and implicated others before his death
in 2007. These facts alone render the Warren
Commission's official theory - "Oswald acted alone" nonsense, a lie now perpetuated over 50 years (see
Last Word and Plausible Denial by Mark Lane).

COPA Conference Poster and Political

February 3, 2014
By admin
The official poster logo and artwork used for our national conference in Dallas in 2013, "Fifty
Years is Enough! Free the Files, Find the Truth", showing the famous Kennedy half dollar issued
in 1964 with a bullet hole and blood and the conference title slogan above, with a reference to
our website was specifically and exclusively designed for our use and for the conference by
former JFK assassination researcher and advertising expert Gene Case. Permission for exclusive
use by COPA was given by Gene's widow, Sylvia Rodriguez and by the artist who designed the
It has come to our attention that certain individuals have appropriated the image for use, often

without reference to COP A as the source, without prior permission or request. We ask that they
cease and desist in such unauthorized use, regardless of their intent.
Some argue that anything posted on the Internet is somehow fair game for download and use
without even asking. In our view this not only violates the intellectual property rights of the artist
and the creator but also breaks the rules of common decency and courtesy. Some continue to
defend their use on the grounds that COP A needs to post notice to deny them the right to do
these violations. If so, consider this such a notice.
Continued use after being informed that permission was denied in our view dishonors Gene
Case, the artist and the serious research community COPA represents, and is a form of political
opportunism that should not be encouraged.
COPA and other members of the research community have long been involved in the struggle to
free the files regarding the Kennedy assassination, and in fact this guided the formation and work
of COPA from the beginning.
Our member organizations were responsible for both the passage and the implementation of the
JFK Assassination Records Act, and continue to push for full release of files under that act or by
any other method.
We have spent decades using FOIA requests and lawsuits, appeared in public forums of
government agencies tasked with release, including the ARRB, NARA, PIDB and the NDC as
well as the specific agencies withholding the files to demand expedited release. We have at times
taken part in public demonstrations focused on the release of these files, not the least being our
annual Moment of Silence held in Dealey Plaza on November 22.
We welcome and encourage others to join us in this effort if they are sincere and if they want to work together with those who have been involved for many years.

We also welcome any and all public demonstrations and other pressure put on the government
for full disclosure and release of records if done in a legal and nonviolent manner by those whose
agenda is simply such transparency in the historical record.
We will not sponsor or endorse individual actions that conflict or compete with our announced
annual events or the actions of those who misuse our name, wrongfully appropriate our images
with or without asking permission, or demonstrate an opportunism by planning events without
reference to or cooperation with the existing body of researchers and organizations who have
worked on this issue for so long.
Calling for "working together" after making the planned actions and themes solely by
themselves, defending conflicting events with no interest in the harm done, and continuing to
defend unprincipled actions is the definition of political opportunism in our view, and an attempt
to wrongly lead or take credit for the majority public support for release of the JFK files with no
history of working on the issue, and in contempt of those who worked for decades to build that
We call on COPA members and the serious research community to withhold cooperation with
individuals and groups who demonstrate this sort of opportunism. We also, again call on
everyone to cease and desist in reproduction, reprinting or any use of our conference poster,
artwork and slogan.

November 12, 2013
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington,D.C. 20500
Dear President Obama,
With the approach of November 22, 2013, the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedys
public execution, I am writing to encourage that you order immediate release to the public in
full (without redaction) ALL the 1100+ files/records remaining secret, under government
control and directly - or even tangentially - related to that event. I also invite you to recognize,
encourage and even join in a silent, ongoing vigil awaiting release of those records, begining on
11/22/13 at 12:30 p.m., in the public plaza adjoining the John F. Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts, a Memorial built in Washington, D.C. to honor President Kennedy. (http://
President Kennedy is not honored as records of his murder remain secret while thousands daily
gather to entertain and be entertained in the Kennedy Center, a structure not fully celebrating
the life of John Kennedy while these contradicting circumstances persist, even highlighting
maturation of a trend in American culture away from vigilant awareness of civic rights and
responsibilities, a trend pointedly implicit in the title of Neil Postmans 1985 book, Amusing
Ourselves to Death. The public plaza at the Kennedy Center thus uniquely provides a best focal
point for newly engaged citizens to exercise their nearly forgotten Constitutional right to
peacefully assemble and petition for this redress of grievances: that ALL records related to
President Kennedys assassination be promptly released, a step crucial to reclaiming public
confidence in, even control of, the very institutions and processes valued by John Kennedy as
functioning in time to build America, not into a tensely politicized democracy - subject to
tyranny by majority/mob rule - but a Constitutional Republic, calmly persistent in respecting and
protecting both majority and minority interests.
The public plaza adjoining the Kennedy Center clearly and historically has been a public space,
appropriate and available for a Constitutional assembly, or vigil. In fact, until recent years, the
entire Kennedy Center and grounds were within the jurisdiction of the U.S. Park Police, who to
this day recognize the right of Americans to assemble and conduct vigils on public spaces
within their jurisdiction as not requiring application for or approval of any permit. More recently,
and for that very reason, management of the Kennedy Center and adjoining grounds were
apparently transitioned away from jurisdiction of the U.S. Park Police, with the intended result of

prohibiting public assemblies or vigils at this necessary focal point as the 50th Anniversary of
JFKs assassination became imminent. These circumstances evidence not just a theory, but an
actual Conspiracy (18USC371) to accomplish Deprivation of Rights Under Color of
Law (18USC242), to discourage, even prevent exercise of the Constitutionally defined and
protected right to peacefully assemble and petition for a redress of grievances, specifically at this
most important time and location. This is a serious matter. If on November 22, 2013 or thereafter,
any public, private or corporate entity employs legal tactics or law enforcement/ security
functions to interfere with this vigil, this peaceful assembly at this location, those actions must be
recognized as in furtherance and ultimate accomplishment of the stated Conspiracy, requiring
diligent investigation and prosecution by the U.S. Justice Department to enforce criminal and
civil penalties upon the offending parties. Very hopefully, it wont come to that.
The irony and absurdity of further delaying release of records related to his assassination are well
highlighted in a perspective on secrecy and the media expressed by President John Kennedy
himself, speaking to journalists in 1961:
The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people
inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret
proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted
concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.
Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its
arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation
if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced
need for increased security will be seized upon by those anxious to expand its meaning to
the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to
the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank
is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to
censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press
and the public the facts they deserve to know....
....This Administration intends to be candid about its errors; for, as a wise man once
said: An error doesn't become a mistake until you refuse to correct it .....
Without debate, without criticism, no Administration and no country can succeed - and
no republic can survive. That is why the Athenian law-maker Solon decreed it a crime for
any citizen to shrink from controversy. And that is why our press was protected by the
First Amendment - the only business in America specifically protected by the
Constitution - not primarily to amuse and entertain, not to emphasize the trivial and the
sentimental, not to simply give the public what it wants - but to inform, to arouse, to
reflect, to state our dangers and our opportunities, to indicate our crises and our choices,
to lead, mold, educate and sometimes even anger public opinion....

Abundant evidence has entered the public domain since November 22, 1963 to establish that Lee
Harvey Oswald has been falsely framed in history as a lone gunman responsible for the
assassination of President Kennedy. Rather, the evidence points towards Oswald having been
innocent, maneuvered into the role of patsy, then himself murdered within days. Yet as the
50th Anniversary approaches, the Oswald Did It Alone mantra has been ever more regularly
and definitively imposed as historical fact upon the American people, even the world, by an
increasingly bland, insipid and controlled mainstream media, compliant in perpetuating lies of
commission and omission well documented in the Warren Commission Report. Instead, it is now
time for the media to wake up and demonstrate a revived and courageous passion for truth.
Why do those records still secret need to be released? To persecute those still living who may
have acted, or failed to act in preventing, either the assassination or subsequent cover-up? No.
The objective of prompt release of the records is to begin nothing less than a watershed transition
towards greater and functional transparency in government. The country, even the world, yearns
for America to take this step.
What records remain secret? Among the most important withheld records are believed those of
former and long deceased employees of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). As excerpted
below from the website, Journalist Jefferson Morley suggests the seven most
important CIA files yet to be released are:
1) Files on the interrogation of Yuri Nosenko

Yuri Nosenko was an officer in the Soviet KGB who defected to the United States in
April 1964, shortly after the assassination of JFK. Nosenko said that he had seen the files
that the KGB compiled on accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald in his two and a half
year residence in the Soviet Union between 1959 and 1962. The Soviet intelligence
service had not recruited or used him as an agent, Nosenko said.
Deputy CIA Director Richard Helms told Chief Justice Earl Warren that he could not
vouch for the accuracy of Nosenkos claims exculpating the KGB. This left open the
possibility that Nosenko was a false defector sent by the Soviet Union to obscure its role
in JFKs assassination.
According to the CIA s website, Helm said, It did strike me at the time that it would be
a great mistake for the Warren Commission to shape its findings on the basis of a
statement made by a man whose bona fides we could not establish.

Yet what the CIA learned from its interrogation of Nosenko remains secret 50 years later.
According to the National Archives online JFK data base, the CIA has 36 files on the
interrogation of Nosenko, amounting to 2,224 pages of material. None of these records
have ever been made public.
Was Nosenko telling the truth? Or lying? The CIA doesnt want you to know.
2) The files of William King Harvey

Bill Harvey was one of the most highly regarded CIA officers of his generation. One
colleague described him as a man without sentiment, considerable stamina, great
determination [and] high-skilled and a gun nut. His contempt for President John F.
Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy was not disguised.
When the CIA wanted to create an organization capable of carrying out assassinations in
1960, they gave it the code name of ZR-RIFLE and put Harvey in charge.
When Harveys CIA colleague John Whitten was asked by investigators why Harvey
might have told his wife to destroy his papers after his death, Whitten replied, He was
too young to have assassinated McKinley and Lincoln. It could have been anything.
According to the National Archives online JFK data base, the CIA retains a 123-page file
on Harveys operations.
3) David Atlee Phillips operational files

David Phillips was a trust fund kid from Fort Worth, Texas, who was recruited into the
CIA in the 1950s and won a medal for his clever work in the CIAs overthrow of the
government of Guatemala in 1954. With Howard Hunt, Phillips went on to play a leading
role in the CIAs failed effort to invade Cuba at the Bay of Pigs In April 1961.
Phillips had an interesting role in the JFK story. Working undercover in Mexico City in
1963, Phillips was involved in the pre-assassination surveillance of Oswald. There is also

a credible but uncorroborated report from a Cuban who worked with the CIA in 1963
who said he saw Phillips in the company of Oswald in Dallas in September 1963.
Phillips went on to become the chief of CIA operations in Latin America. Upon his
retirement in 1975, he established himself as one of the most prominent public defenders
of the CIA. To defend the agencys reputation, he founded an organization, the
Association of Former Intelligence Officers, which still exists today.
When Congress re-opened the JFK investigation in 1976, Phillipss inconsistent,
inaccurate, and evasive answers to questions about Oswald, prompted JFK investigator
Gaeton Fonzi to allege that Phillips was guilty of perjury in the case of the murdered
Phillips denied it but he did say late in life that he thought JFK was killed by unnamed
rogue CIA officers.
Phillips, who died in 1987, also knew how to arrange an assassination. In 1998, the nonprofit National Security Archive obtained and posted CIA documents showing that
Phillips, at the direction of CIA director Richard Helms and President Nixon, had worked
with ultra-right-wing Chilean military officers responsible for an assassination in October
A search of the online JFK database of the National Archives shows that the CIA retains
four files containing 606 pages of material on Phillips.
4) The files of Anne Goodpasture

Anne Goodpasture was a career CIA officer who served in 1963 as the top aide to
Winston Scott, the longtime chief of the agencys station in Mexico City. She also
worked closely with David Phillips.
When the CIAs photo and audio surveillance monitors picked up on the curious actions
of a man identifying himself as Lee Oswald in September and October 1963, the
reports were sent to Goodpasture. Thus Goodpasture became acquainted with Oswalds
political views, personal history and contacts seven weeks before JFK was killed.
When first questioned by JFK investigators in the 1970s, Goodpasture denied that the
Mexico City station had tapes of Oswalds phone calls. She later changed her story and
admitted, under oath, her role in disseminating the tapes after the assassination.

According to the National Archives online JFK data base, the CIA has a 286-page file of
Goodpastures operational activities that has never been made public.
5) Howard Hunts operational files

E. Howard Hunt was a career CIA officer known for his prolific prose and conservative
politics. In 1961, he was a leader of the CIAs failed effort to invade Cuba at the Bay of
Pigs. Embittered by what he regarded as JFKs failure to support the invasion, Hunt wrote
a book Give Us This Day, which castigated JFKs Cuba policy as shame-faced.
In 1963 he worked at CIA headquarters in Washington. He was close to David Phillips.
Hunt became famous in 1972 when he was arrested for running a burglary team breaking
into the offices of the Democratic Party in the Watergate office complex in Washington.
Hunt and the burglars were paid and apparently directed by President Richard Nixon and
his aides. In the resulting scandal, Hunt all but blackmailed the CIA by threatening to talk
in court about what he described as numerous highly Illegal conspiracies in which he
had participated.
Later in life Hunt made cryptic remarks about a possible CIA plot to kill JFK in 1963 that
he called the Big Event. Hunts comments can be seen and heard on YouTube, Hunt
was convicted burglar and a scoundrel so his testimony has to be handled with care.
Was Hunt involved in a JFK conspiracy?
The question cannot be answered definitively because the CIA retains six files containing
332 pages of material on Hunt, according to the National Archives online JFK data base.
6) The files of David Sanchez Morales

David Morales was a career CIA officer who served as the chief of operations at the
CIAs Miami station in 1963 where he worked with David Phillips and Howard Hunt. He

later served in Laos and Vietnam where he gained a reputation as a skillful and deadly
In retirement, Morales did not often speak of his CIA exploits but when a friend referred
to Kennedys assassination, he reportedly said, We took care of that son of a bitch,
didnt we?
According to the National Archives online JFK data base, the CIA has a 61-page file on
Morales that has never been made public.
7) The files of George Joannides

In 1963, Joannides, an undercover officer, worked for David Phillips and he worked with
David Morales. His job title was chief of psychological warfare operations at the CIAs
Miami station; his job was running agents.
Joannides handled the CIAs contacts with the Cuban Student Directorate, an anti-Castro
exile group whose members tangled with Oswald in New Orleans in the summer of 1963.
The group, responsive to CIA discipline, publicized Oswalds pro-Castro ways before and
after JFK was killed.
Yet, as the New York Times reported in 2009, the CIA did not tell the Warren
Commission that the CIA, via Joannides, had a financial relationship with Oswalds antiCastro antagonists.
When Congress reopened the JFK investigation in 1978, the CIA called Joannides out of
retirement to serve as liaison to investigators. He revealed nothing about what he knew of
contacts between Oswald and his agents, which HSCA general counsel G. Robert Blakey
said constituted obstruction of Congress. In 1981 Joannides received the Agencys Career
Intelligence Medal. He died in 1990.
In the course of my lawsuit seeking Joannidess records, the CIA acknowledged that it
retains more than 50 documents about Joannidess actions in 1963 and 1978 that it will
not make public for reasons of national security.
How will the public confidently know when ALL the records have been released? First and
foremost, this must be ordered and announced publicly by you, President Obama. The public

may thereafter seek affirmation the records have indeed become public from those leading the
most reputable organizations that evolved during the past 50 years, pursuing and documenting
issues related to President Kennedys assassination, including: The Mary Ferrell Foundation
(; Coalition on Political Assassinations (;
JFKlancer (; The Cyril Wecht Institute for Forensic Sciences
(; JFKfacts ( Americans may trust in the perspective of
attorney Mark Lane (, an early, constant and continuing voice for truth,
alerting America to inconsistencies between evidence and the Warren Commission's "official"
version of assassination events: Rush to Judgment (book and movie); A Citizens Dissent: The
Alarming Account ofthe Vast Efforts ofthe Powerful and Influential Forces of Our Government
and the Establishment Media to Suppress Mark Lanes Investigation into the Assassination of
President John F. Kennedy; Plausible Denial: Was the CIA Involved in the Assassination of John
F. Kennedy; and Last Word: My Indictment of the CIA in the Murder ofJFK.
President Eisenhower warned of dangers implicit in a "military-industrial" complex that now
seems more fully developed into a "military-industrial-intelligence-financial/banking-legalcorporate-info/entertainment" complex. Resulting concerns are well expressed in the global
reaction to the extent of America's spying, or intelligence gathering activities, recently disclosed
by Edward Snowden. The urgent need for restoring transparency to America' s governing
institutions and processes, and confidence therein, can best be furthered by prompt release of
ALL the assassination records.
President Obama, as the world watches on November 22, 2013, a perceived and longstanding
trend towards increasing secrecy, even tyranny, can be effectively reversed by your faithful
action to order immediate, unredacted release "in full" of ALL as yet sealed records associated
directly, or indirectly, with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Please do so.
Thank you,

Pittsburgh, PA (October 17, 2013) This evening at the Senator John Heinz History Center, a panel
discussion entitled "The JFK Assassination and the Media" was held in conjunction with "Passing the
Torch: An International Symposium on the 50th Anniversary of the Assassination of President John F.
Kennedy." Sally Wiggin, host of WTAE Chronicle, moderated and received questions for panelists Oliver
Stone, David Talbot, Jefferson Morley, Russ Baker, Lisa Pease and Jerry Policoff. One in attendance
asked whether the media in general, but especially journalists in attendance, would report on a simple idea
also expressed at the Symposium's morning session, detailed below in a virtual Q&A, imagined as an
interview with staff reporter Bryan Bender of The Boston Globe:
Q. What is your idea?
A. That the single priority of the global JFK Assassination Investigation Community should be
immediate, total release by the Obama Administration of ALL the 1100+ documents still retained by the
government pertaining to the public execution of President John F. Kennedy. The movement to release
records has thus far lacked a physical focal point for what Gandhi may have described as principled, nonviolent, non- cooperation with the evil of those records remaining secret; a geographic focus for a
peaceful, respectful "vigil" that, absent prior release of the records, should begin on 11/22/13 at 12:30
p.m.. I don't think that is meant to be in Dallas; procedures there seem intent upon restricting Dealey
Plaza access to the point of frustrating attendees. Why go there? A better location is the public plaza,
larger than several football fields, adjacent the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in
Washington D.C. As if designed for this event at this moment in time, there's even a statue of Don
Quixote near the plaza's entrance, highlighting the perhaps wistful notion that by simply and respectfully
assembling, in a most Constitutional sense, Americans can surely prompt release of the records, a crucial
step towards restoration of our Constitutional Republic.
Q. How is this event being organized?
A. It isn't. If it is meant to occur, the idea will go viral and the event spontaneously self-organize. There is
no website, not even a Facebook page - nor should there be. It is a simple concept, after all On 11/22/13
at 12:30 p.m., from a handful to perhaps a million Americans can arrange their own travel and lodging,
arriving in the most peaceful and orderly way at this very appropriate location. To the plaza itself, they
should BRING NOTHING; absolutely no backpacks, chairs, tents, sleeping bags, radios, food/drink/
coolers, etc No Starbucks coffee cups - NOTHING. No distracting clutter. Nothing to create the potential
for even a single piece of litter. Imagine individuals spontaneously self-organizing into groups of perhaps
six each, allowing one from each group to always remain on-site, maintaining the vigil - even a SILENT
VIGIL - while their associates leave and return as scheduled among themselves, giving each other breaks
to eat, or take care of personal business elsewhere. All that's necessary for this to happen is for the media
to do its job and report, or "forecast," on what is only an idea, something that just might happen. The
media makes weather forecasts all the time, why not forecast and report the prospect of an event likely to
occur, even imminently, in Washington, D.C., on 11/22/13?
Q. Are there any concerns for violence?
A. There is no reason for concern; quite the contrary. All legitimately in attendance will adopt an almost
reverential respect for orderliness and tranquility in the gathering Any in attendance who even speak
loudly or disrespectfully towards each other, or those in authority - much less act violently - should be
immediately shunned by all others in attendance. The same holds true for Dallas on 11/22/13 violence is
only a tool of those likely planted and seeking to disrupt, to precipitate an excuse for government
intervention, a recurring scenario in history. Everyone knows.
Q. Why the public plaza adjoining the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts
A. It is a Memorial built to honor John Kennedy. So long as ANY of the 1100+ records related to his
public execution remain secret, concealed by the government, John Kennedy is not being honored by the
daily entertainment of thousands attending events at the Kennedy Center. It will be a day to rejoice when

all the records have been made freely available to the public. Perhaps a SILENT VIGIL in the adjoining
plaza will even prompt some ticket holders to spontaneously and voluntarily boycott their own
entertainment until the JFK records are all made public; a matter for each persons conscience. Read the
text of John Kennedy's historic speech to journalists that described Americans fundamental abhorrence of
secrecy, then ask whether John Kennedy himself would have wanted records of his own assassination
kept secret. If you had been President Kennedy, would you?
Q. Do those who direct the Kennedy Center welcome this suggested use of the public plaza?
A. I hope they support it as an essential step to honoring John Kennedy by prompting release of ALL
records still withheld pertaining to the assassination. Perhaps they may even open wide the doors of the
Kennedy Center for those peacefully and respectfully gathered towards that end; not to suggest any
unwelcome use or occupation of the Kennedy Center facility itself, only quiet and respectful use of the
adjoining public plaza. Actually, those who direct the Kennedy Center could call the White House, or
elsewhere - even today - and prompt immediate release of ALL as yet undisclosed records, precluding any
reason for this vigil to ever begin - in the public plaza adjoining the Kennedy Center, in Dallas, or
elsewhere, for that matter.
Q. Why seek the records? To persecute those once involved and still living?
A. No. Release of the records is essential to reversing the trend since John Kennedy's murder towards
ever greater secrecy in government. Transparency, restoring of respect for and adherence to the
Constitution and its processes is essential. For those fearing retribution for their historical actions, or
inactions related to John Kennedy's assassination and subsequent cover-up, they should be shown God's
grace: "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him
should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but
whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son
of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather
than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and
does not come to the light, lest his works be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so
that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God." (John 3:16-21)
Q. Should Americans be afraid to assemble for such a vigil, in Washington, D.C.?
A. "There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The
one who fears is not made perfect in love." (1John 4:18). None should be afraid to peacefully assemble,
seeking release of the records and restoration of our Constitutional Republic.
Q. Who are you? What has encouraged your conceptualization and communication of this idea?
A. Karl Golovin, @KarlGolovin . By God's grace, through faith in Jesus Christ.
The seminar in non-violence at The Gandhi Institute, Rochester, New York, And
I just visited the Kennedy Center gift shop, finding a refrigerator magnet that portrays, in red and blue
letters on a white background, this quote attributed to John Kennedy: "One person can make a
difference, and everyone should try."
Q. Where may those interested download this information?
A. The text of this document, location photos and images perhaps useful for individuals to make their
own flyers and posters are available at
