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.

The National Archives on Thursday released a final batch of government documents related to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy….SE

  Recently I have studied the subject of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.This is a subject that has been debated from various perspectives over the years.

These next paragraphs serve only to explain what did happen that day and not speculate on anything else.


  First, one needs to get the setting for the day and places in mind. November 22, 1963, started out as your average cool, sunny day. President John F. Kennedy had flown to Texas to smooth over relations between Conservative Governor John B. Connally, Liberal Senator Ralph W. Yarborough, and Liberal Activist Don Yarborough. After stopping in Fort Worth, President Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline flew into Dallas, landing at Love Field Airport. The projected path of the motorcade was along an eleven-mile route through Dallas, after which the President was slated to speak at a luncheon, with leaders of the business and civic communities in attendance. At 11:50 AM, the motorcade left Love Field Airport on its way toward downtown Dallas.


  As the motorcade and Secret Service car drove through Dealey Plaza, the President’s car was greeted with throngs of enthusiastic supporters jumping at the chance to see him. Then the unexpected happened. As the motorcade turned onto Elm Street and passed the Texas School Book Depository, gunfire rang out. The first shot tore through President Kennedy’s neck and struck Governor Connally in the back, stopping in his left thigh. As the motorcade accelerated, a second shot was fired. This shot blew off the entire right side of President Kennedy’s head, emitting a huge mist of brain matter and blood. The motorcade sped up to 80 MPH en route to Parkland Hospital.


  Upon his arrival at Parkland Hospital, doctors immediately went to work. Though President Kennedy still had a faint heartbeat, it quickly faded. The doctors’ efforts at reviving him proved futile, and at 12:49 PM, Fathers Oscar Huber and James Thompson performed last rites. Governor John Connally was stabilized and sent to surgery. He was doing well and survived. At 1 PM CST, after the administration of last rites, President Kennedy was pronounced dead. He was 46 years old. Shortly thereafter, Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson was evacuated and rushed to the safety of Air Force One, where he was sworn in as President at 2:38 PM CST. Lee Harvey Oswald was arrested and charged with Kennedy’s assassination.


  At the time of his assassination, Kennedy was the second youngest president(Theodore Roosevelt was younger) and had served only two years and ten months. The events in Dallas ended his time in office and made him the fourth president to be assassinated in office.

What we do know of these horrible events, if nothing else, is this: Whoever pulled this off has the blood of a president on his hands.
