Why are the JFK files not being released today
First off, anybody looking for the files that will be released they will be HERE.
Also the 2,891 documents released on 26th of October, 2017 are HERE.
Here is some history for some who are not sure of the situation with the JFK files. The Congress in 1992 enacted President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992. The act mandated all assassination-related material be housed in a single massive collection in the National Archives and Record Administration. The collection is approximately 5 million pages of records. Now the National Archives says that 88% of the records in the collection will be open in full, 11% are released in part with sensitive portions removed, 1% of documents identified as assassination-related remain withheld in full. This is something that anybody who understands how the intelligence agency works, should expect. Now the Act states “all records previously withheld either in part or full should be released on October 26, 2017”.
In reality you are getting .0005% today of the records that should be released. Donald Trump today ended up caving two the intelligence agencies on grounds of “Sources” “Methods” “National Security” “Current Operations”. Which everyone who follows the agencies knows what this means, that they don’t want you to see them.
Now this part is directly on the National Archives site about how they can be stopped from being released on the 26th of October,2017.
“Each assassination record shall be publicly disclosed in full, and available in the Collection no later than the date that is 25 years after the date of the enactment of this Act, unless the President certifies, as required by this Act, that –
(i) continued postponement is made necessary by an identifiable harm to military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement or conduct of foreign relations; and
(ii) the identifiable harm is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in disclosure.
The Act was signed by President Bush on October 26, 1992, thus the final release date is October 26, 2017.”
This is a disgrace, even if you support Trump, hate Trump, you should be outraged. Trump appointed the current head of the FBI and CIA. He has the power to have them released in full, but he caved, and that is why they aren’t being released.
