The John Lennon FBI files


initial release
after settlement

This document has been withheld in its entirety by the FBI since 1981 on the grounds that releasing it could endanger the national security of the US. The document is a letter to John T. Minnich at the American Embassy informing him that the "International Committee for John and Yoko" had been set up to gather support for them in their deportation hearings. The International Committee was not secret; it sought to publicize the injustice of the deportation order. The letterhead and signature remain classified under the national security exemption.
