Stephen Cohen: Hvorfor russerne tænker at USA fører en krig imod dem

stephen cohen
Russiagaters påstår, uden beviser, at "Rusland angreb Amerika" i 2016, men mange russere tror - med rimelig grund - at USA har angrebet deres land i de sidste 25 år.

Professor Emeritus i Politik og Russiske studier (ved Princeton og NYU) Stephen F. Cohen og John Batchelor fortsætter deres (sædvanligvis) ugentlige diskussioner om den nye amerikansk - russiske kolde krig. (Tidligere indlæg, som nu er i sit 4. år, kan findes hos TheNation.com.)

Cohen's emne er både nutidig og historisk. Den mest centrale, vidtrækkende og farligste beskyldning af Russiagate er at "Rusland angreb det amerikanske demokrati" i løbet af præsidentvalget i 2016. Efter 18 måneder, er der stadigvæk ikke noget troværdigt bevis for denne beskyldning. På den anden side, er der mange russere - blandt den politiske elite, den uddannede middelklasse, og almindelige borgere - som tror at "USA har været i krig med Rusland" i de sidste 25 år. en opfattelse som jævnligt udtrykkes i den russiske media. De tror dette af forståelige grunde.

Amerikanske kommentatorer tilskriver sådanne synspunkter til at være "Kremlin propaganda." Det er sandt påpeger Chohen, at russere, ligesom amerikanere, er stærkt påvirket af hvad der vises i medierne, især i fjernsynet, og at reportager og kommentarer i russiske medier ikke er mindre politiseret end deres amerikanske modstykker. Men eliten og den russiske middelklasse er ikke mindre informeret og kritisk tænkende end deres amerikanske modstykker. De har endda mere adgang til daglige amerikanske nyheder og meninger - fra kabel og satellit TV, amerikansk understøttede russisk-sprogede udsendelser og internetsider, og fra russiske sites, såsom inosmi.ru, som dagligt oversætter masser af artikler fra amerikanske medier til russisk - end amerikanere har til russiske medier. . (Retsministeriets seneste indgribende censur imod RT og Sputnik kunne betragtes i dette lys). Generelt er mange flere russere langt bedre informeret om Washingtons politik end amerikanerne er om Moskvas politik, mener Cohen.

Kommentar: Cohen is one of the sole voices of reason in American political commentary.

Hvorfor feminismen ønsker at opbryde familien

Stolt single mor January Jones: en far figur ville være gift for min søn
Som mange andre ismer før den (Kommunisme, religioner, kulter), søger feminismen at afmontere den traditionelle familieenhed for egen vindings skyld. Hvorfor? For ismen er gamle loyaliteter ligesom dårlige vaner, der forstyrrer et individs evne til at aflægge en usvigelig troskabed. Ismer ønsker kontrol, men familier har en tendens til at sætte familiemedlemmers og deres behov over ismens krav, reducerer derved ismens magt og indflydelse og underminerer derved dens kontrol.

Igennem historien, har familien været "den ultimative og eneste konsistente undergravende organisation ... den vedholdende permanente fjende af alle hierarkier, kirker og idelogier," bemærker Ferdinand Mount, forfatter af The Subversive Family..

Latterlig! YouTube censurerer kristne videoer fordi indholdet beskriver og støtter værdier i den russisk-ortodokse tro

Really YouTube?

Virkelig YouTube?
For to uger siden blev jeg i en kort email fra YouTube summarisk informeret om, at vores Russian Faith kanal,- på hvilken vi havde brugt hundredvis af timer med hård arbejde og som komplimenterede vores Russian Faith website, som jeg ejer, var blevet "termineret." Ingen begrundelse blev givet andet end en meget generel én, som kunne betyde hvad som helst.

Russian Faith er et nyhedsmedieprojekt jeg begyndte i September: en webside, YouTube channel (nu lukket ned), Facebook, og Twitter - for at dække kristne problemstillinger i almindelighed, og en store historie om kristendommens renæssance i Rusland.

Denne dramatiske vending i både regering og samfund i Rusland er meget vigtig, ikke blot for kristne, men for hele verden uanset deres religiøse synspunkter, fordi det har mange konsekvenser, der er vigtige for os amerikanere.

Det burde påvirke vores udenrigspolitik, og det står i kontrast til fjendtligheden mod kristne værdier i vores egne Vestlige samfund. Det er en kendsgerning, at Rusland har udviklet sig til at være den ledende forsvarer af kristendommen i verden, og det er en vanære, at liberale kræfter i de amerikanske eliter og regeringen er blandt kristendommens mest indædte fjender - både hjemme og i udlandet.

Kommentar: How symbolic that a website named Russian Faith has been so needlessly and egregiously attacked in this way. But it also fits the 'Big Picture'. And that 'Big Picture' is to drag down, demonize and undermine anything and anyone who would seek to have Russia succeed as a nation and as a people - on nearly every level - and in whatever way it can.

But here's the thing: Every time we see one of these attacks, more and more people get to see and know for themselves just how biased, irrational and pathological this impetus towards Russia's destabilization actually is.

ÆGTE internationalt aftalt spil: Nigel Farage afslører massivt Soros netværk af Europaparlamentmedlemmer, der spreder "gender theory" åbne grænser og russofobi (VIDEO)

Idet han overtager anti-Soros faklen fra den ungarnske leder Viktor Orban, søger den britiske politiker Nigel Farage at undersøge andre medlemmer af EU parlament, som støtter den rige forretningsmands kontroversielle vision. Men er Orbans og Farages frygt begrundet?

Den britiske politiker, Nigel Farage, det fremtrædende ansigt for Bexit, er nu bekymret over Europas skæbne. I en tale til EU paramentet i denne uge fremlagde Farage nogle tænksomme ideer om kilden til påstandene om, at Rusland på én eller anden måde manipulerede Brexit afstemningen og Trump valget.

"Netop i sidste uge igangsatte valgkomissionen i Storbritannien en undersøgelse for at finde ud af, hvorvidt "Forlad" kampagnen modtog offshoremidler eller russiske penge," Farage sagde.

Kommentar: That right there is the real collusion that is "undermining the fabric of Western civilization," not Putin's Russia.

At skrive din vej til lykke ved at redigere din personlige historiefortælling

handwriting
Den videnskabelige forskning om fordelene ved den såkaldte 'udtryksfuldt skrift' (expressive writing) er overraskende omfattende. Forskning viser, at det at skrive om sig selv og ens personlige oplevelser kan forbedre humørsvingninger, hjælpe på reduktion af symptomer blandt cancer patienter, forbedre helbred efter hjertetilfælde, formindske lægebesøg og selv forbedre hukommelse.

Nu studerer forskere hvorvidt skriftens magt - og det at genskrive - sin personlige historie kan lede til ændring i opførsel og forbedre lykkefølelse.

Konceptet lægger sig op af ideen om, at vi alle har personlige historier, der former vores syn på verden og os selv. Men nogle gange har vores indre stemme ikke fat i den lange ende. Nogle forskere tror, at vi ved at skrive og sidenhen redigere vores egne historier, kan ændre vores opfattelse af os selv og identificere forhindringer, der står mellem os og et bedre helbred.

Det kan være, det lyder som noget selv-hjælps vrøvl, men forskning viser at virkningen er ægte

Mens det russiske forsvarsministerium frigiver beviser for USA's militære samarbejde med IS, fordømmer Lavrov USA's tilstedeværelse i Syrien

Sergei Lavrov, Vladimir Putin and Sergei Shoigu
Dette er Ruslands hidtil stærkeste udtalelse til dato, der fordømmer USA's illegale tilstedeværelse i Syrien.

Ruslands udenrigsminister, Sergey Lavrov, har fordømt USA for dets tilstedeværelse i Syrien, som ikke blot er illegal men yderst kontraproduktiv.

Lavrov henviste også til en udtalelse fra det russiske forsvarsministerium, som i klare udtryk anklagede (med vedlagte fotografiske beviser) USA's undgåelse af at ramme IS soldater i Syrien, mens de tillader dem fri passage væk fra de indkommende befriere fra den syrisk-arabiske hær (Syrian Arab Army).

Syrien har gentagende gange udtalt, herunder i de Forenede Nationer, at amerikanske tropper og piloter i Syrien ikke virkelig bekæmper IS men blot spiller en hindrende rolle for den uundgåelige syriske styrke, én som omfatter bevæbning og financiering af terroristgrupper.

Ruslands seneste udtalelse bakker op om disse afgørende vedholdende påstande fra Damascus.


Kommentar: Den syriske regering krævede igen i går, for hundrede og syttende gang, at de amerikanske styrker forlader dets land.


Kommentar: The Russian Defense Ministry has provided further information, regarding the situation in eastern Syria and the covert US-led coalition support for ISIS terrorists.
Last week, units of the Syrian Army (while receiving support from the Russian Air Force) liberated the town of Abu Kamal, the last remaining ISIS stronghold in Syria, located at the Iraqi border. The operation not only delivered a decisive blow to ISIS, it also ascertained facts of direct cooperation and support provided by the US-led coalition to the ISIS terrorists.

Following the triumph of the Syrian Army, ISIS terrorists began to depart Abu Kamal en masse, while avoiding the strikes of Russian and Syrian aircrafts, and making their way for Wadi Al Sabha passage, located at the Syrian-Iraqi border.

The Command staff of the Russian forces stationed in Syria sent two requests to the Washington-led international "anti-ISIS" coalition headquarters, in order to conduct a combined operation so that the fleeing ISIS convoys on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River would be eradicated for good.

The American side, however, completely refused to take any action against the terrorists, stressing that they began to surrender themselves voluntarily, meaning their actions were assessed in accordance with the provisions of the Geneva Convention relative to the Treatment of Prisoners of War.

In addition, the Americans failed to respond to a question previously asked by the Russians on why so many of the ISIS terrorists that supposedly left Syria on combat vehicles with heavy armament were regrouping in the Washington-led coalition-controlled territories and preparing for new attacks against the Syrian Army in the vicinity of Abu Kamal.

But this is not the only controversial thing related to the matter. In order to spare the terrorists from Russian and Syrian air strikes, the coalition's aircrafts attempted to interfere with the Russian Air Force's actions in the area.

BBC afslører hemmelig aftale mellem USA og IS: Fri passage ud af Raqqa for topterrorister og udenlandske soldater

bbc raqqa
BBC har afdækket detaljerne i en hemmelig aftale, som lod hundredvis af IS soldater og deres familier slippe ud af Raqqa for øjnene af den amerikansk og britisk ledede koalition og de kurdiske styrker som kontrollerer byen.

En konvoj omfattede nogle af IS's mest berygtede medlemmer og - på trods af forsikringer - dusinvis af udenlandske soldater. Nogle af dem er spredt sig ud over Syrien og endog nået så langt som Tyrkiet.

Kommentar: See also: U.S. makes deal for free passage of ISIS in Raqqa - but denies involvement, BBC video proves they lie. As MoA points out in that article, the Americans had criticized the Syrians and Russians for making a similar deal with ISIS just months before. But in addition to "maintaining good relations between Kurds and Arabs" and "minimising casualties", the U.S./ISIS deal also served another purpose: maneuvering ISIS fighters into areas where they could do more damage to the Syrian army and civilian populations, not to mention letting ISIS fighters flee to other countries where they could keep the ISIS threat alive. U.S. policy towards ISIS is very much schizophrenic: the true believers want ISIS stamped out, but the cynics see it as a useful tool in destabilizing the world, thus creating the opening for American intervention.

The Turkish PM commented on the Raqqa deal:
"We told the United States: it is not a strategy for big states fighting against terrorism to use some terrorist groups in a struggle with others. Now nobody knows where these withdrawn terrorists will use their weapons against civilians - in Turkey, Europe, America or the whole world," Yildirim said.

The prime minister once again pointed out that Turkey considered the Syrian Kurdish Units terrorists.

"We see that armed Daesh terrorists left [Raqqa] being replaced by other terrorists from the Kurdish People's Protection Units [PYD]. Is that a smart policy? We turned out to be right again. But our aim is not to be right but to defeat terrorism," the prime minister added.

Ifølge syriske militærkilder var der en masse amerikansk fremstillede våben og militært udstyr fremstillet i Vesteuropa og Israel. Ud over M16 automatgeværer, var der også TOW anti-tank missilsystemer og amerikanske 155 mm feltkanoner.

"Der var også Hummers, som enten blev brugt til at transportere folk, eller som inden i var fyldt med sprængklare bomber. Israelske efterretnings og rekognoscerings luftfarttøjer og moderne israelsk beskyttelsesudstyr til at brug ved fjernelse af miner og sprængstof blev også fundet," fortalte kilden Sputnik Arabic.

Kilden sagde også at teknologi til luft- og jordrekognoscering, satellitkommunikation og sække med C-4 sprængstoffer også blev opdaget inden i disse lagre.

Kommentar: The American government and its intelligence and military intelligence agencies support ISIS. They have done so for many years.

Let that sink in.

Putin ved Valdai 2017: "Vores største fejltagelse var at vi troede for meget på jer. I tolkede vores tillid som svaghed og udnyttede den"

Oversat fra russisk til engelsk af Ollie Richardson og Angelina SiardStalkerzone.org
putin valdai 2017

Putin taler, folk lytter, Fake News Inc flygter
Af alle Vladimir Putins taler, som jeg havde lejlighed til at lytte til og se, vil jeg kalde denne tale ved Valdai forumet inklusiv spørgsmål til svar den mest anti amerikanske, endog antivestlige. Idet han beskriver historien bag Ruslands relationer med Amerika i 1990'erne, deler den russiske præsiden en historie - der er slående i sine detaljer - om hvordan, inden for rammerne af to aftaler om begrænsning af atomvåben, eksperter fra USA havde adgang til de mest hemmelige russiske faciliteter og ind i kontorerne, hvor de etablerede sig: bordene var endog dekoreret med små amerikanske flag.

Hvordan besvarede amerikanerne vores lands åbenhed, der var uden fortilfælde? Vladimir Putin gentog adskillige gange, at de anså det som en svaghed. Rusland begyndte at brænde plutonium af våbenkvalitet i overensstemmelse med de opnåede aftaler, og USA, uden at informere os, ændrede de forpligtigelser, de påtog sig og nægtede at fuldbyrde bygningen af den fabrik, der skulle behandle plutonium. Det kom frem, at de tog en beslutning om at begrave det, hvilket i almindelighed ikke giver nogen mening, fordi det altid er muligt at grave det ikke brugte plutonium op fra deponeringsområdet, og det vil igen være fuldstændigt klart til brug.


Kommentar: The general topic of the Valdai Club this year was Creative Destruction: Will a New World Order Emerge from the Current Conflicts, which tells you right away that 'alternative conferences' like these, which Putin got up and running after he was effectively blacklisted for that 2007 Munich conference speech, have their finger on the pulse of what is actually happening in our world: it is transforming, significantly.

This year the Valdai conference brought together over 130 participants from 33 countries, including from the US and Europe, but you wouldn't know that listening to Western media.

JFK dokumenter afslører: CIA mind control, attentater, mafia, terrorisme, og mere

jfk files
Tirsdag afslørede den amerikanske regering 2.800 tidligere hemmeligholdte dokumenter med relation til attentatet på John F. Kennedy, mens det til stor ærgelse for enhver, der søger gennemsigtighed udsatte frigivelse af flere hundrede andre. President Donald Trump udsatte frigivelsen af de andre, idet han sagde, at han ikke havde "noget valg", når han skulle tage hensyn til "national sikkerhed, ordensmagten og udenrigspolitiske betragtninger" rejst for det meste af FBI og CIA. Som TFTP forudså, så var JFK dokumenterne ikke nogen rygende pistol. Imidlertid indeholder mange af dokumenterne afsløringer og bekræftelser på de fuldstændig horrible fremgangsmåder i verdens mest ondsindede efterretningsvæsen.

I et forbavsende udtryk for borgerjournalistik kastede internettet sig torsdag aften over dokumenterne og det gjadt også alle medarbejdere på TFTP. Den informationen man får ved at læse disse tidligere tophemmelige dokumenter afslører den mørke sandhed om CIA's skjulte, kriminelle og helt igennem terroristiske metoder.

Fra kontrol med sindet [mind control] til samarbejde med mafiaen og brugen af skjulte kemiske våben for at sulte uskyldige civile, CIA har opereret i det skjulte, brudt international lovgivning, og lagt alle øde, der kom dem på tværs.

The Free Thought Project har sammensat en liste af dokumenter fra JFK dokumenterne, som uddyber disse rent ud sat ondsinde fremgangsmåder i CIA

Kommentar: The number of documents withheld is more likely in the thousands, not hundreds. See: JFK files set for release today - no sign National Archives will actually do so without delays - UPDATE: CIA/FBI pressure Trump to withhold 3000 docs for "national security"

With that in mind, here are some more details gleaned from today's tiny release of documents. This document, dated Oct. 25, 1963, and written by FBI Agent Warren de Brueys, confirms that the FBI were keeping tabs on Oswald before the assassination (h/t TFTP):
"Will maintain contact with Cuban sources for any indication of additional activity on the part of subject organization which appears to have become inactive since the departure from New Orleans of LEE HARVEY OSWALD."
jfk files
De Brueys was later promoted. In another document, CIA commission member David Belin asks former CIA Director Richard Helms:
Mr. Belin: Well, now, the final area of my internal investigation relates to charges that the CIA was in some way conspiratorially involved with the assassination of President Kennedy. During the time of the Warren Commission, you were Deputy Director of Plans, is that correct?

Mr. Helms: I believe so.

Mr. Belin: Is there any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy, which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent...
... but doesn't include Helms's answer. The document also contains this:
Helms was being questioned on the assassination of Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem, and whether the CIA was involved. He revealed that he was "not persuaded that President Nixon doesn't still believe that the Agency didn't have something to do with the demise" of Diem in 1963.

"The whole thing has been rather... heated by the fact that President Johnson used to go around saying that the reason President Kennedy was assassinated was that he had assassinated President Diem, and this was just justice," Helms said.
After the assassination, the Soviet Union feared an all-out war, seeing the assassination as an "ultra-right" conspiracy and coup and predicting that "without leadership, some irresponsible general in the US might launch a missile at the Soviet Union." They described Oswald as "a neurotic maniac who was disloyal to his own country", but downplayed his ties to the Soviet Union. An unnamed informant apparently told U.S. spies that the KGB had proof that U.S. "President [Lyndon] Johnson was responsible for the assassination."

A document also records FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover's reactions to some aspects of the investigation. On Nov. 24, the day Ruby killed Oswald, he dictated this line: "There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead":
Hoover was critical of the Dallas Police Department's handling of the case, saying it could not have brought charges without the FBI's involvement. "We traced the weapon, we identified the handwriting, we identified the fingerprints on the brown bag," he said, adding that senior police had been seen too much on television.

The FBI director, working with then Deputy Attorney General Nicholas Katzenbach, was also eager to release information on the event "so we can convince the public that Oswald is the real assassin."
NBC adds:
It's not clear from the memo whether Hoover thought there might have been a conspiracy but didn't want it to be known or whether he sincerely believed Oswald acted alone and hoped to head off public fear and confusion.

Hoover also indicated that his concern may have been influenced, in part, by diplomacy, dictating that there could be serious international complications if the public thought Oswald might have been part of a larger plot.

Katzenbach is known from previously released documents to have shared Hoover's concern, writing in a memo the next day, on Nov. 25, 1963, that "the public must be satisfied that Oswald was the assassin; that he did not have confederates who are still at large; and that evidence was such that he would have been convicted at trial."

In the memo, Hoover excoriated the Dallas Police Department for not having prevented Oswald's killing by Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner. The FBI had warned the police that Oswald's life was in danger, but nothing was done, he complained.

"Oswald having been killed today after our warnings to the Dallas Police Department was inexcusable," Hoover dictated. "It will allow, I am afraid, a lot of civil rights people to raise a lot of hell because he was handcuffed and had no weapon. There are bound to be some elements of our society who will holler their heads off that his civil rights were violated - which they were."

Hoover argued against appointing an independent commission to review the evidence, contending that the matter should be left to the Justice Department, the FBI's parent agency. Lyndon Johnson, the new president, announced the creation of the Warren Commission a few days later.
More tidbits (h/t RT):
Oswald's meeting with 'KGB officer'

While Oswald's visit to the Soviet Embassy in Mexico City in September 1963 had not been a secret, the files revealed that he had spoken with Consul Valeriy Vladimirovich Kostikov, described in the documents as "an identified KGB officer."

"He is a case officer in an operation which is evidently sponsored by the KGB's 13th Department (responsible for sabotage and assassination)," the document read.

On October 1, Oswald was said to have rang the embassy and asked: "Anything new concerning the telegram to Washington?"
Notice the weasel word "evidently". As MuckRock pointed out this week, Hoover said FBI files "do not contain any information to fully support" the CIA's assessment that Kostikov worked for the KGB's 13th Department. But U.S. businessman Brian Litman says he was - and he knows because he represented several ex-KGB officers, including Kostikov. According to a colleague of Kostikov, Pavel Nechiporenko, the meeting was entirely coincidental: Kostikov "said he arrived at the compound to find Oswald sitting there with his colleague, Pavel Yatskov, to whom Kostikov explained that the American had been there the previous day. Kostikov said Oswald 'was very riled up and broke into hysterics at the mention of the FBI, crying and saying as he wept: 'I'm afraid they'll kill me. Let me in.'' They gave him a glass of water and then went to a volleyball game they were late for.
FBI warned Dallas police of threats against Oswald

The FBI received a call to its Dallas office from a man claiming to be a member of a committee organized to kill Lee Harvey Oswald, according to a memo sent on the day of the assassin's death by FBI Director J Edgar Hoover.

"We at once notified the Chief of Police and he assured us Oswald would be given sufficient protection," the document read. Hoover added: "This morning we called the Chief of Police again warning of the possibility of some effort against Oswald and he again assured us adequate protections would be given. However, this was not done."

The document also states that the FBI had an agent at Parkland hospital, where Oswald was taken after he was shot, in the hope that he might make a confession before he died. He did not do so. Meanwhile, his attacker, Jack Ruby, was said to have told authorities that his grief over the killing of President John F Kennedy two days earlier had made him insane. Hoover labelled the claim "a pretty smart move" as it could have laid the foundation for a plea of insanity at his trial.

Ruby's connections with Dallas police

An informant told the FBI that Oswald's assassin, Jack Ruby, had close links to local police in Dallas. Ruby, whose real name was Jacob Leon Rubenstein, was said to have had a "good in" with the authorities, who were served free drinks at his nightclub.

A friend of Ruby's, Lou Lebby, described him in an FBI document as "emotional, unstable and a person who made his living primarily from 'scalping' tickets to sports events."
One more for now:
jfk files
On the whole, this release is pathetic. The CIA is toying with the American and world public by releasing documents that provide nothing new on the assassination. In 1978 the House Select Committee on Assassinations concluded that there was a conspiracy involved in his murder and that there was very likely more than one shooter.

Yet even that investigation was denounced by insiders as a whitewash and that the CIA misled the committee (see link above). The whole world and his dog knows that Oswald either wasn't the shooter or was not alone. Likewise, it's clear that Kennedy was shot from the front, reference the Zapruder film.

The only tidbits in these documents (so far) are references by eyewitnesses to or commentators on the original investigation that claimed that there was a bullet hole in JFK's car windscreen (i.e. he was shot from the front) and that a bullet entered his neck near the adam's apple (again shot from the front). For those who don't know, Oswald was in the book depository building BEHIND JFK's car.

The main point of the release of these documents appears to be to provide the scurrilous mainstream media the opportunity to promote the official Warren Report findings and poopoo conspiracy theories. In other words, it's another exercise in deep state and mainstream media gaslighting of the American public by feigning 'transparency' around the JFK assassination while simultaneously telling everyone that the official story still holds water. Nothing could be further form the truth, and just about everyone with a few neurons still firing knows it.

Update (Oct. 28)

In addition to Hoover's curious insistence on convincing the public that Oswald was the "real assassin" (as opposed to what, a "fake" assassin?), there are at least two instances in the documents of suggestive redactions. The first is also mentioned above: the lack of an answer to the question asked of Richard Helms as to the evidence that Oswald "was in some way a CIA agent". His answer is redacted.

The second has to do with 1975 hearing testimony from former CIA Deputy Director of Plans Richard Bissell. Only three out of 33 pages of this Top Secret document were released. From TFTP:
The opening page of the document claims the transcript covers topics such as the attempt to overthrow Castro with the failed Bay of Pigs invasion; former CIA Director Allen Dulles and former President Eisenhower; the overthrow of Dominican Republic President Rafael Trujillo; the ZR/Rifle Project and CIA agent Arnold Silver; former CIA Director John A. McCone; Mafia boss Sam Giancana; CIA and FBI recruit Robert Maheu; and the Department of Justice.

The transcript of Bissell's responses to questions on any of the topics listed above would be incredibly telling regarding the inner workings of the CIA and the events that led up to, and occurred after the assassination of President Kennedy. However, the document that was released consists of 3 pages, and only 1 page contains text from the transcript.

The only page of text contains questions for Bissell such as "Now, Mr. Bissell, we went over the notes in the other room, didn't we?" to which Bissell responded, "Correct." The topic of the page appears to be on the actions of Bill Harvey, a CIA agent who played a crucial role in Operation Mongoose, the agency's attempt to overthrow Castro after the failed Bay of Pigs invasion.
Mr. Schwarz: "All right. Now, in light of that document ... does that have any effect upon your prior testimony that you had no reason to question Mr. Harvey's statement at the occasion you asked him to set up the capability you said that the White House had twice urged you to do so?"

Mr. Bissell: "Yes. I think these dates do call that into question, because accepting these dates, which are Mr. Harvey's own notations, it is clear that I had given him at least some exposure to that assignment at the end of January, just at the..."
The document ends there, leaving the public to wonder where the other 30 pages of the transcript are, why they were not released, and if they will ever be released in the future.
