Congress in 1992 left it up the President to decide if he wanted to release files compiled on the extensive investigation of the assassination of President Jack Kennedy in Dallas, Texas in 1963….
Not all of the files are being opened to the public….(The FBI and CIA have asked for more time to check for sources and method’s issues)
Historians will spend more time examining the paper trove….
The NY Times is asking for help with going over the files….
President Trump ordered the long-awaited release on Thursday of 2,800 documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, but bowed to protests by the C.I.A. and F.B.I. by withholding thousands of additional papers pending six more months of review.
The papers were posted online by the National Archives and Records Administration around 7:30 p.m. Thursday in compliance with a 1992 law, and represent a treasure trove for investigators, historians and conspiracy theorists who have spent more than half a century searching for clues to what really happened in Dallas on that fateful day in 1963.
But following a chaotic last-minute campaign by intelligence agencies lobbying for selected redactions, Mr. Trump agreed to postpone the disclosure of other documents while officials screen them again for sensitive information.Share on Facebook
