THE ARCHIVE MUCKRAKERS

Randy Herschaft

Newsperson-Investigative Researcher Randy Herschaft, an award-winning 25-year veteran with The Associated Press, has spent over a decade digging up documents at the National Archives in College Park, Md., including for the Pulitzer Prize-winning team investigation into the massacre of civilians during the Korean War by U.S. troops. In over 20 visits to the archives, he has found documents that reveal the secrets of national security, including the use of Japanese and Nazi war criminals recruited by U.S. intelligence during the Cold War and the operations of the Pond, a super-secret spy organization that preceded the CIA. In 2007, he found a newly declassified CIA document that revealed that the Black September Palestinian terror group was responsible for the first political assassination of a foreign diplomat in the nation’s capital. He looks forward to posting declassified documents discovered from the archives on this website.
