The John Lennon FBI files


initial release
after settlement

The FBI described HQ33 as a "letter with attachment." All the information was blacked out, even the date. The FBI cited the national security exemption as grounds for withholding it, declaring that it contained "information provided by a foreign government with the expectation, expressed or implied, that the information is to be kept in confidence." Even today we are not allowed to know the name of the government that provided this information. However this page contains no information about Lennon -- it is the cover letter to a "five-paragraph report."

This document consists of four pages: HQ33 Page 1, HQ33 Page 2, HQ33 Page 3, HQ33 Page 4
