Missing Transcripts…

This is a snip from page 361 of “History Will Prove Us Right” by Howard Willens:


“Secretary of State Rusk testified that after the assassination “there was very considerable concern in Cuba as to whether they would be held responsible and what the effect of that might be on their own position and their own safety.” Slawson told me recently that some of the confidential sources on which Rusk may have based this assessment were still undisclosed as of December 2011. In the Warren Commission files at the National Archives there is a folder of materials from the CIA. Under a cover sheet identifying certain transcripts of the intercepted calls from the Russian and Cuban embassies in Mexico City, the folder contains the transcripts that the commission had seen and relied upon. Next in the folder there is a cover sheet entitled “Transcript of telephone calls between two high officials of the Cuban Government.” Under the cover sheet, there is no transcript. Whether these telephone calls related to Cuba’s reaction to the assassination or some other matter remains unknown in the absence of the transcript. Whatever agency concluded that these transcripts remain classified should have been more careful and removed the cover sheet from the folder as well.65”


Does anyone know whether or not the missing transcripts have been declassified since Howard wrote his book?
