178. Octy, I hate to say it, but...
just got a reply from my good friend Jimmy Di, author of several books, including a bio of Garrison, and host of a Probing assassination web site, who says the conclusion among the powers that be in the research community is that it's a hoax.

He says they concluded this:

"First... the NARA numbers do not match the document.
Also, because of the classification, it woul dnot be just confidential.
Also, McCone's signature on that particular letterhead is weird."

Of course, I've known these guys to be wrong before, but that's evidently their consensus after a week of considering this.

My problem with this conclusion is we're in a box in terms of drawing media attention to it. If we do it now, it could discredit the critical community (which would be the whole point of the hoax, if it is one). If we don't do it now, it becomes "not news" if it has sat around in the public domain for a while.

But I think we've got to leave it alone at least until after this freaking campaign is over. If we don't beat this son-of-a-bitch, we will be giving a green light to the same crowd who pulled off JFK's murder. Not the same in person, but the same in spirit. At least that's my view of it.
