Continuing with The JFK Assassination 101 series …  Larry Hancock and Carmine Savastano join Chuck to add to the data base of short programs designed to explain much of the evolving records and realities connected to the Assassination : JFK 101 Church Committee Reports


Church Committee Reports

These 14 published reports of the Church Committee contain a wealth of information on the formation, operation, and abuses of U.S. intelligence agencies. They were published in 1975 and 1976, after which recommendations for reform were debated in the Congress and in some cases carried out.

The Interim Report documents the Church Committee’s findings on U.S. involvement in attempts to assassinate foreign leaders, particularly Patrice Lumumba of the Congo, Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Rafael Trujillo of the Dominican Republic, the Diem brothers of Vietnam, and General Rene Schneider of Chile. It also contains findings on the development of a general “Executive Action” capability by the CIA.

The remaining reports are split into 7 volumes of public hearings and exhibits and 6 books which contain the Committee’s writings on the various topics investigated. These 14 reports are the most extensive review of intelligence activities ever made public
