Thousands of classified documents relating to the killing of President Kennedy will be revealed next week despite the efforts of many federal agencies to keep them hidden.
In the wake of Lee Harvey Oswald’s demise, the National Archives have more than 15,000 papers, including hundreds that experts say might indicate the CIA’s direct involvement in the assassination.
After Joe Biden requested a review of the records, it is anticipated that a substantial batch of locked-down information will be released by December 15, after the release of 1,500 files last year.
A New York attorney has filed a federal lawsuit against his administration. The fact that the CIA, FBI, DEA, and other organizations do all possible to keep the data secret lends credence to conspiracy theorists’ claims.
“Jefferson Morley, the Vice President of the Mary Ferrell Foundation – one of the US’ largest sources of assassination records – said there are at least 16,000 documents yet to be released,” The Daily Mail reported.
He believes 44 of them contain information about a covert CIA program relating to Cuba that directly involved Oswald.
The Mary Ferrell Foundation is one of several clients of Larry Schnapf, a New York lawyer who filed the lawsuit against the Biden administration and the National Archives in October, demanding the release of all JFK-related documents.
It comes after Schnapf obtained via a Freedom of Information Act request internal communications between the National Archives and several government agencies, telling POLITICO that the CIA, FBI, DEA went to great lengths to prevent the files from being shown to the public.
The lawsuit alleges that the government has not met an obligation to release all files within 25 years of the assassination under the JFK Records Act of 1992.
Meanwhile, an NBC poll conducted on Tuesday revealed that more than 7 in 10 Americans want the government to release the remaining document still classified.
According to Bendixen & Amandi pollster Fernand Amandi, President Biden’s release of the long-delayed JFK files, as he promised, is one of the few things that unites a majority of American voters today.
Several Kennedy family members have repeatedly demanded that the records be made public, with Robert Kennedy Jr. reiterating last year: ‘It’s an outrage. It is an assault on American democracy. There should not be hidden governments within the government.
