Gimme Some Truth (2000 Digital Remaster) (3:14)

Cover of Imagine

From Imagine and 3 other releases

John Lennon’s “Gimme Some Truth” speaks to the crisis in truth and honesty that was a source of frustration to Lennon and all who sought justice and peace during the Vietnam War. The crisis in truth pervaded the media and the politics of his era. This has been thoroughly researched by University of California, Irvine, historian Jon Wiener, who wrote about Lennon’s FBI files and his COINTELPRO targeting in his book “Gimme Some Truth: The John Lennon FBI Files.” Portions of the files had been withheld under the claim that releasing them would “endanger the national security. ” With the help of the ACLU of Southern California, Jon Wiener sued the FBI under the Freedom of Information Act, asking the courts to order release of the withheld portions of the Lennon FBI file.
