UPDATE: Here is a link to the files that were released today.
Some, but not all of the JFK assassination files will be released today, as Donald Trump (who I think was all giddy about the release of these docs not too long ago) has decided to follow last-minute recommendations from his national security agencies to redact sensitive material.
The 1992 JFK Records Act, spurred on by the 1992 Oliver Stone film JFK, specified that the U.S. government had 25 years to make public all related files—the final due date being Oct. 26, 2017. The files, which would be culled from the CIA, FBI, and Justice Department, total about 3,000 never-before-seen documents, along with 34,000 previously redacted files.
As of now, about 2,800 of the files are to be released “immediately” some time today—with the remaining documents to be held for a 180-day “review period.”
CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked “whether there were any signs of a conspiracy in secret JFK files.” The answer? “Officials on call with reporters would not comment.”
My take on all this? I think anybody who honestly believed that the CIA/FBI etc. were really going to release super-super-sensitive info just because of some “act” inspired by an “okay” Oliver Stone movie would have to be on crack.
But Trumpie got his couple days of headlines on Drudge etc. off of it, so that’s what’s really important.
