FBI Memo Written Two Days After Foster's Death Saying That There Was "NO EXIT WOUND."
The document was obtained in late March 1998 by a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit for Reed Irvine's Accuracy in Media. The lawsuit was filed in the federal district court in Washington, D.C., as AIM v. FBI, Civil Action No. 97-CV-02107-GK.) The memo comes in two versions: a draft version and a final version. Both versions are included in this download. The numbers at the bottom right corners of the pages are exhibit numbers placed by the FBI as part of their document production to AIM and its attorney. The draft version of the memo is numbered 2-4 and the final version is numbered 260-262. Neither Kenneth Starr or Robert Fiske ever mentioned this memo, although it conflicts with the official conclusion of an exit wound in the back of Mr. Foster's head. A very good article dated April 7, 1998 was written about this memo by Paul Chesser for WorldNetDaily here. The memo first became public only about 5 months after the report on the Foster death by Kenneth Starr's Office of Independent Counsel was publicly released. The rest of the media ignored the memo despite the obvious newsworthiness of it and its presentation by me to the Federal District Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.
An almost completely unredacted version of the FBI Memo was released to me pursuant to my 2005 FOIA lawsuit. This includes a third version of the memo that was sent. However, all three versions are nearly identical in substance.
