The decision of the U.S. Attorney General, Robert F. Kennedy, not to list George Lincoln Rockwell’s American Nazi Party as “subversive” was not intended to be “irrevocable, “Acting Attorney General Byron R. White said today in a letter to the Jewish War Veterans of the U.S.A.

“I am sure the Attorney General did not intend his decision at this time not to designate the subject organization pursuant to Executive Order No. 10450, relating to the Federal employee security program, to be irrevocable,” Mr. White stated. He said the Justice Department was interested in the Nazi issue. “It would be appreciated if you would furnish the names of the Federal employees referred to in your letter and any details you may have concerning their activities to the F.B.I. Washington field office,” he told the JWV organization.
