The Pentagon Papers are released in full to the public.

On Monday the National Archives released all 7,000 pages of the Pentagon Papers, the explosive documents that detailed four administrations’ worth of deception on Vietnam. Some of the content has been public since 1971, and the release is not likely to reveal many new secrets. But this is the first time that Americans can read the papers in full without a security clearance.

So ya i think that Kennedy and Johnson lied about deploying troops to Vietnam because what i remember he said that both of them said they was not going to deploy the troops. Since the pentagon paper 1971 was released it was first declassified. Now 40 year later, it was released to the public unlike some of the contents the paper the info have in 1971.

Now i don't know what to think anymore. It's time for the government to admit the truth.

Was anyone right to release the declassified photos?

Here are some more links for it. Mostly the newspaper from the 1970s like i linked above my post.

BTW here is the full 7,000 pentagon paper for the first time since the 1970s. Some parts were cut part to part though. www.washingtonpost.com...

This is really anything new. This was leaked a long time ago and was a main reason for the public's distrust of the politicians and the reasoning for the war.

Yes it was but some of the contents released by Daniel Ellberg in 1971 were cut out so nobody know the full details of it then the public forget it after. This for the first time, now the Americans can read about the full information of pentagon papers.

even when ellsberg posted these in 1970, they were already declassified. The only reason they got so much attention then was because the bold move freaked Nixon out.
This was a long time before watergate.
So why don't you tell us why you think these 'papers' relate to our current situation.

I have found a document that claims the driver was commissioned to assassinate JFK (Written in 1989, Were people theorizing that it was the driver back then?)....and then once you watch the video footage you realise just how right it is...

fourwinds10.com...

Then you look at his wife, she looks like she is desperately trying to get out of that vehicle, only to be stopped by the SS. Is that the Swastika, or Secret Service? Who knows now.

www.jfkmurdersolved.com...

If you watch other footage though, you realise something happens to JFK before he is shot, because his arms go up like his is in some sort of distress, and then Jacqui attempts to investigate what his issue is (it seems like it is something inside his jacket, poison maybe?). The driver turns around to see if he has been incapacitated, turns his head back to the road, then turns back around and then fires the fatal shot (you clearly see the car slowing down at this point because obviously the driver has taken foot off gas to concentrate on the task at hand). Simultaneously the guy in front of JFK is shot by Lee Harvey OR Govt Sniper.

Obviously this has been touted about before, and that info wont be revealed to the public through the Pentagon files, but one day, maybe one day we will know the truth.

p.s. These files are merely released now to stop you from focusing on the current issues endangering your lives.

We continue to trust a governmental institution, whose subsidiary's (CIA, FBI) have admitted to falsifying videos for propaganda in the Washington Post and numerous insiders in documentary interviews. We have these papers that inform us that at the federal level they have lied. The same government that gave people syphilis in developing countries only to say sorry 30 years later, thank H. Clinton. We have WIki Leaks releasing documents that provide evidence to the idea of out federal government creating enemies through training. Where theres smoke, theres fire; or so they say. If theyve lied to us before, and blatantly told us after it is no longer relevant, why do so many people think they dont lie?

edit in: its 2 am. im not sourcing anything. google them, everything ive said has a easily findable mainstream source.

The only way to solve the problem is to pass an amendment that makes it an act of blood treason(if the person who committed it escapes justice make the guilt inheritable to their descendants so someone will be held accountable) to willfully lie to the American citizenry.

Because the one thing these sicko's value more then money is their "legacy".

As if there will be ANYTHING in there worth any value.

Why would the boss keep immaculate records of his treasonous crimes?
The idea of committing a crime, a crime on such a significant scale is only matched by the desire to never leave a trail of evidence, IE documents ,recordings, people...

Not long ago Bush Jnr and Cheney had a little bonfire in their records department.
Thus why in 40-xx years nothing will be released on 9/11, Iraq of Afghanistan.

I imagine the presidents of the 50's, 60's, 70's also had their own bonfires in the record department........ back then though, the media never knew about it and thus, never told us!
