JFK files: U.S. considered framing Soviet Union as a pretext for war. “The memo shows that the department, along with the CIA, considered buying Soviet aircraft to stage the attacks, even getting estimates from the Air Force on how long it would take and how much it would cost to produce the planes domestically and covertly.”   http://www.newsweek.com/us-soviet-aircraft-jfk-docs-cover-operations-717460

JFK files: Anonymous caller tipped off British paper 25 minutes before JFK assassination. “The caller said only that the Cambridge News reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news and then hung up.”   http://www.newsweek.com/jfk-documents-reveal-cambridge-news-knew-assassination-694850

FBI purged about 500,000 names of fugitives from gun purchase screening list. “After Trump was inaugurated, the Justice Department further narrowed the definition (of “fugitive from justice”) to those who have fled across state lines to avoid prosecution for a crime or to avoid giving testimony in a criminal proceeding.”   https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/national-security/tens-of-thousands-with-outstanding-warrants-purged-from-background-check-database-for-gun-purchases/2017/11/22/b890643c-ced1-11e7-9d3a-bcbe2af58c3a_story.html

Mystery aircraft eludes National Guard fighters over Oregon. “…the 142nd Fighter Wing operates F-15Cs upgraded with the most capable air-to-air radar set in the world (AN/APG-63V3) and Sniper advanced targeting pods for long-rang visual identification. Their pilots are some of the best in the world and are highly trained in the homeland air defense mission. The fact that they “didn’t find anything” is surprising to say the least.”   http://www.thedrive.com/the-war-zone/16079/airliners-and-f-15s-involved-in-bizzare-encounter-with-mystery-aircraft-over-oregon

Some Federal Reserve members worried stock market bubble may pop. “In light of elevated asset valuations and low financial market volatility, several participants expressed concerns about a potential buildup of financial imbalances. They worried that a sharp reversal in asset prices could have damaging effects on the economy.”   https://www.cnbc.com/2017/11/22/fomc-minutes–fed-officials-fear-market-imbalances-possible-effects-of-sharp-reversal-in-prices.html
