Entire Volume of CIA Files On Lee Harvey Oswald, Set to Be Released in October, Has “Gone Missing”

By Jack Burns

Countless concerned individuals are still searching for answers surrounding the mysterious death of the 35th president of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The official narrative, that a lone former Marine named Harvey Oswald assassinated him, is widely disputed.

All available documents from all government entities are required by the Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 to be released on October 26th of 2017. But if history repeats itself, the Central Intelligence Agency may not release an entire volume of documents on Oswald, known as “volume 5.”

As Sputnik reports, the release in July of 3,810 CIA and FBI documents on the assassination by the Assassination Records Review Board threw up a number of revelations that JFK researchers have hungrily devoured and enthusiastically publicized. For instance, the mayor of Dallas at the time of Kennedy’s assassination, Earle Cabell, was a CIA asset in the 1950s, and his brother, Charles Cabell, a high-ranking CIA official until 1962.

The release in October has been highly anticipated by those seeking answers. However, thanks to a deliberate fudging or records, or a conveniently timed clerical error, an entire volume may never see the light of day.

Inside Langley Air Force Base’s CIA Headquarters is an office known as the Office of Security. The Office of Security maintains its own top-secret archives known as the Office of Security Archival Holdings and is a separate archive from the agency’s more frequently used facility located in Alexandria, VA known as the Agency Archival Record Center.

As late as 1977, the entire 7-volume collection of documents was intact, having been checked out by Russ Holmes in the Office of General Counsel and noted the 7-volume series was all together, not missing any volumes. But when the CIA was asked to turn over the volume of documents on Oswald, the hitman in the assassination, it seems the agency stonewalled a bit, like a shell game according to independent investigator Malcolm Blunt.

Blunt described the stonewalling:

This huge search by CIA did not surface Oswald’s security files and the Assassination Records Review Board (AARB) remained uninformed about their existence. Not until 1997 when an ARRB staffer stumbled across evidence that two previous congressional investigations had access to these files did CIA “discover” them.

The AARB eventually received the 7-volume set of documents on Oswald in 1998, but staffers quickly realized there was one volume missing—volume 5.

An agency explanation was offered that volume 5 could have been consolidated into Volume 4, or Volume 6 for example. Eventually, the agency concluded, according to Blunt, Volume 5 of Oswald’s Security file may never have existed.

So far, 2017 has been a year of anticipation for JFK conspiracy theorists as they await the release of all files surrounding the assassination of one of the country’s most beloved presidents. One group, known as the Citizens Against Political Assassinations, is chomping at the bits to get to volume 5 and others. They believe the official government narrative is full of holes and needs to be investigated.

Many of its members are lawyers, and as TFTP has reported, have desired to clear Oswald’s name of any wrongdoing if possible.

But it is attorney Lawrence Schnapf, Chair of the Environmental Law Section of the New York Bar Association, whose comments concerning the current president and his relationship with the Deep State (implied but not referred to as such) have the media ablaze with talk of yet another political assassination.

Schnapf is the co-chair of the CAPA legal committee. After a brief discussion of why JFK’s assassination is relevant today, Schnapf compared the early 1960s with 2017. He said the Warren Commission was the “original fake news” organization whose conclusions later became the official government narrative. Although the commission refused to pursue “exculpatory” information, which is now hidden behind “government secrecy,” he says he hopes will come out this year, in compliance with the JFK Assassination Records Act.

Turning attention again to the case of JFK, the group plans to use the shell casings found on the scene and 21st-century ballistics analyses to conclusively determine whether or not Oswald actually killed JFK.

He said they’re first going to conduct a mock trial in November, and later an official legal proceeding called a “Court of Inquiry,” an official court proceeding to definitely prove “Lee Oswald was not the shooter…that’s what we hope to prove.”

The group hopes to expunge Oswald’s name from the official narrative, clearing not only his, but also his daughter’s, to “expunge the stain of their father’s name from” theirs.

“Oswald was not convictable, much less indictable,” he concluded.

The reputable lawyer contends that the mainstream media often overlooks the real story —that the government is not transparent — and that the Department of Justice (which also includes the FBI) has been politicized.

  1. No Comment – SNAFU

  2. “has been politicized”. Since when has any government agency NOT been politicized. It is their job to cover the asses of their bosses. If people knew just how badly they were being screwed over by all aspects of government, we wouldn’t be slaving for one today. Not to mention the boon to the economy as hangman jobs for politicians would be BOOMING!

    • The financial elites love it when the politicians they control take the blame. As Goebbels wrote in the principle of propaganda #18: “displace anger onto targets of hatred.” Jews, Mexicans, refugees, the media,politicians…..blame anybody but the corporate elites who run the country.

  3. “Oswald, the hitman in the assassination” er sorry, legally he’s innocent. Either add the word alleged or remove “the hitman in the assassination”.

  4. At the crucial moment loses the original document.
    No such careless neglect is possible
    The autopsy of JFK he lost his brain.
    The Apollo missions have lost all original documentation,with the most vain excuse.
    The destruction of evidence confirms the false “official”.
    And justice , entertained in the deception that destroys it ALL

  5. “So far, 2017 has been a year of anticipation for JFK conspiracy theorists,,,,,,” yuck

  6. Media often overlooks the real story”? Any overlooking is intentional and related to media’s relationship with the deep state and its enforcers, the CIA!

  7. “t the mainstream media often overlooks the real story —that the government is not transparent — and that the Department of Justice (which also includes the FBI) has been politicized.”

    Who’d a thunk it? That attorney is one sharp young fella…

  8. Seriously though, my bet is that file # 5 shows Oswald’s new identity and whereabouts. Anyone who seriously studies the Oswald “assassination” footage cannot help but perceive this was a staged event, complete with Kleig lighting, microphones and strategically placed photographers. You can’t see any blood because of his dark sweater and L.H.O actually reacted to the shot milliseconds BEFORE the sound of the shot was recorded –
    that bullet was faster than the speed of sound !. What they need to do is exhume his body and – oh wait, that’s right he was buried in an unmarked grave. “Spooky” stuff eh?

  9. With the CIA involved in these documents, it is not a coincidence but SOP to protect those who are really guilty and for those who were falsely accused. The Warren Commission was just as much a farce as the 911 Commission. The CIA has been directly involved in all the wars and police actions since 11/22/1963 as well as orchestrating them with lies and propaganda. So is the CIA on America’s side and our protection or the globalists? Someone mentioned that the sole purpose of the CIA was to protect the elite’s interests overseas and has nothing to do with securing or protecting America. Zero confidence in the DOJ and the intelligence agencies of the US by its citizens.

    • CIA – no peace on earth as long as they exist
      Monumental fraud Obama was a total CIA creation

      • Actually, the CIA hated Obama and Clinton because they tried to reign in the CIA drone assassination program. Anyone who tries to limit the CIA, or even hold it accountable by demanding justification for its actions, becomes a target. That is why the FBI, which in domestic issues fronts for the CIA, intervened to defeat Clinton. That is why the beneficiary of this intervention has declared: “I love the CIA. I am behind you 110%.”

    • The difference between the Warren Commission and the 9/11 Commission is that the heads (Kean, Farmer, and Hamilton, plus others) have all publicly stated that 1) the government lied to them repeatedly and 2) the CIA stonewalled on critical information. “The Commission was set up to fail.”

      No such repudiation of the results has ever come from the people involved in the Warren Commission, tho a Congressional investigation in the 40’s found that the shooting involved a conspiracy.

      The similarity is that both reported the government version of events; the difference is that the 9/11 Commission has exposed the government as sabotaging a genuine investigation and report.

  10. CIA is covering its ass because there the ones that blew the top of Kennedys head off when they fired from the bridge over the route.

    • It seems Kennedy was shot from a storm drain manhole just a little way ahead of the procession, but if there were multiple shots fired then the bridge, the fence on the grassy knoll, and a building across the street from the Book depository were likely vantage points also. The front temporal shot though was probably from the storm drain manhole.

  11. Add;

    1 “Goy” president demanding an inspection of Israel’s Dimona nuke plant, (persistently) coupled with a threat to stop ALL foreign aid if they continue to refuse AND demanding AIPAC register as a foreign lobby.

    1 Executive order to begin creating NON FED RES currency.

    1 plan to “shred the CIA into a thousand pieces”.

    1 nation completely dominated by “dual citizens”/Shabbos Goi and a huge “Johnson” waiting in the wings.


    1 president’s head exploding onto his wife’s lap and an accelerated “end of empire”.

  12. I said it on blacklistednews and I’ll say it here — when police announced that Obama was using forged identity documents, nobody in state or federal authority had a problem with it. Zip, zero, nada. The mainstream media did not have a problem with it. Why-the-phuck are we surprised when this disappearing documentation crap happens.

    They are laughing in our faces — I really don’t know why they even bother with elections. People, we’ve had a coup ….. this is absolutely not our government. No way, no how.

  13. The whole assassination was smoke and mirrors as in the magic bullet.
    I’m sure nothing of value will be released from the beast in the east.

  14. LOL! Whoops! Lost the files! I imagine the Federal government never loses their files on any of US!

    Smoke and chivas, how they love giving ye the shivers

    A hoax within a hoax within a hoax, JFK was part of the clan, as was MLK, a longest running joke, no-one died and everyone cried, the standard fare lame stream lies, whilst some in the hood winked, LBJ to Jacqui, “’tis nothing like what they think”, the matrix ensures that all the scams are linked, ’tis up to you to connect the dots, failing which they’ll keep on playing you as ignorant clots.

  16. Most now rightfully or wrongly believe it was the CIA that was responsible for his assassination .

  17. …might have motivated Oswald, or ‘others’… what did he mumble – ‘that could have been, uh’? does anyone have the link to the whole interview?

  18. George Bush senior was there that day as a see eye aye member.

  19. It’s gone missing because the people behind this horrendous crime on the people and country are still alive.

  20. Has anyone been able to ascertain whether or not the confiscated news footage from that day was destroyed or is still in some government library somewhere.
