"DISCONNECTION" // Why This Conference is so Unique
The perennial question of JFK research is, “"When will they release the rest of the JFK documents”"? A great many people have anticipated that when the withheld documents in the government’s JFK records collection are finally released, the quest will be over. – Some even seem to expect that the release will actually confirm that the government was aware of a conspiracy at the heart of the assassination and that the knowledge will finally be revealed. Others truly do not understand that literally millions of pages of records have already been released to the public domain, and that decades of Freedom of Information Work by researchers has already added substantially to that body of information.
A message from the Program Chair, Larry Hancock

Actually, we do know what is forthcoming in the 2017 release, in some detail. Profiling the 2017 release, discussing its limitations and anticipating its actual impact was a large part of last year’s November in Dallas program. This November, in Dallas, we will be making a serious effort to provide attendees with an early view of significant findings in the releases, a challenging task given that key presenters will have only weeks in advance of the conference to dig into thousands of pages of newly released and documents. But those are thousands of pages as compared to the millions already released. And the JFK research community has already used those documents, as well as access to actual materials available at NARA to expose the fundamental flaws in the official story of the JFK assassination. The official story of the event, that three shots fired by an emotionally unstable lone nut, an isolated young man with no connections to other individuals or groups, someone totally unknown and “off the radar” of law enforcement and national intelligence, is simply false. We know that now and we have the evidentiary records and documents to prove that assertion. To stress that point, the theme for this year’s overall conference will be that of “"Disconnection"”, the disconnection of the official story from the historical reality.
We will be offering a variety of presentations which focus on that theme, the inherent disconnections embedded in the picture offered to the public by the Warren Commission report of 1964. Disconnects now thoroughly exposed by what can be documented as both legal and scientific issues with the evidence which it used to build its case, as well as the picture it painted of Lee Harvey Oswald. A picture intentionally falsified due to certain very real intelligence and security concerns, part of reactive effort which began to obscure the true history of the event within hours of the shots being fired. It is time for the final records releases but it’s also time to expose the historical farce which became the official dogma of the event. Join us in Dallas in November as we continue to do just that.
