Revealing the truth about JFK
Regarding the Opinion page article "JFK, Lincoln, and Conspiracy Theories," Jan. 16: It is time to release all, not "most" of the the Kennedy assassination material.
When Jim Garrison began to bring out information at variance with the Warren Report, I thought he was a "kook" out for publicity to further his career. However, after months of listening to (and taping) TV interviews of eyewitnesses, and contrasting observations of the staff at Parkland Hospital and those of the staff at Bethesda Naval Hospital, I have come to a far different conclusion. I now think Mr. Garrison was on the right track, but that he only discovered the possibility that there was more than appeared on the surface.
The appalling aspects of this crime point to a network of corruption and perversion of the principles of our government.
We need to take steps to bring secrecy in our government to light and to make the utmost effort to appoint men and women whose integrity will give us a government that serves us. Janice Burleigh, Vista, Calif.
