The Future of Freedom Foundation hosted one of the most fascinating, important, and relevant conferences in our 27-year history.
Entitled “The National Security State and JFK,” the conference was held on Saturday, June 3, 2017, at the Dulles Airport Marriott in Northern Virginia.
Oliver Stone, the noted Hollywood producer and director, received an Academy Award for Best Director for his war drama Platoon, which received the Best Picture award. Stone won another Best Director Oscar for the second movie of his Vietnam War trilogy, Born on the Fourth of July, which was followed by Heaven & Earth. His other movies include Salvador, Wall Street, Natural Born Killers, Money Never Sleeps, The Doors, Nixon, W., and Snowden. He wrote the screenplay for Midnight Express, a movie that received three Academy Awards. He has also produced and directed many documentaries, including Showtime’s Untold History of the United States. In 1991, he directed the movie JFK, starring Kevin Costner and Donald Sutherland, which posits that the U.S. national-security establishment orchestrated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The movie led to the passage of the JFK Records Act, which mandated the disclosure and release of tens of thousands of assassination-related records and documents of the military, the CIA, the Secret Service, and other federal agencies.
