FOIA Document: CIA Sought to Discredit "Conspiracy Theories" After JFK Assassination

In April 1967 the CIA issued a dispatch titled: “Countering Criticism of the Warren Commission Report” where it detailed attempts to discredit and suppress conspiracy truths. For anyone who has researched the CIA this should come as no surprise...

The Memo can be read in full at this link.

Some Snips from the Memo:

"a. To discuss the publicity problem with [?] and friendly elite contacts (especially politicians and editors), pointing out that the Warren Commission made as thorough an investigation as humanly possible, that the charges of the critics are without serious foundation, and that further speculative discussion only plays into the hands of the opposition. Point out also that parts of the conspiracy talk appear to be deliberately generated by Communist propagandists. Urge them to use their influence to discourage unfounded and irresponsible speculation."

"b. To employ propaganda assets to [negate] and refute the attacks of the critics. Book reviews and feature articles are particularly appropriate for this purpose."

"The unclassified attachments to this guidance should provide useful background material for passing to assets. Our ploy should point out, as applicable, that the critics are (I) wedded to theories adopted before the evidence was in, (I) politically interested, (III) financially interested, (IV) hasty and inaccurate in their research, or (V) infatuated with their own theories."

"c. Conspiracy on the large scale often suggested would be impossible to conceal in the United States, esp. since informants could expect to receive large royalties, etc. Note that [The Now Assassinated] Robert Kennedy, Attorney General at the time and John F. Kennedy's brother, would be the last man to overlook or conceal any conspiracy."

Analysis from
Summarizing the tactics which the CIA dispatch recommended:
• Claim that it would be impossible for so many people would keep quiet about such a big conspiracy
• Have people friendly to the CIA attack the claims, and point back to “official” reports
• Claim that eyewitness testimony is unreliable
• Claim that this is all old news, as “no significant new evidence has emerged”
• Ignore conspiracy claims unless discussion about them is already too active
• Claim that it’s irresponsible to speculate
• Accuse theorists of being wedded to and infatuated with their theories
• Accuse theorists of being politically motivated
• Accuse theorists of having financial interests in promoting conspiracy theories

According to and several other sources the CIA had sought to weaponize the term "Conspiracy Theorist", and it seems they have succeeded in co-opting perception of conspiracy by effective use of NLP related to the words "conspiracy theory" or "conspiracy theorist." You see mainstream media shills use the term "Conspiracy Theorist" derogatorily, all by design...
