Almost 60-years after US President John Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, some 16,000 pages of documents relating to the case are still off limits. That may be about to change.
The largest online source of JFK assassination records is suing the current US president and the US National Archives to force the release of all remaining documents related to the case.
The JFK records act was signed by then President Bill Clinton and required all the records be made public by October 26th 2017. While in the White House, Donald Trump delayed the release and then kicked the decision to Joe Biden, who critics say continued the policy of federal obfuscation that has existed since Kennedy died.
The Mary Ferrell Foundation is after the final trove of records assembled for the Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992, which passed without opposition in response to Oliver Stone’s Oscar-nominated film “JFK.”
But, most experts believe that the unreleased or heavily redacted records almost certainly do not provide irrefutable proof that shows any other involvement in the assassination than the accused shooter Lee Harvey Oswald.
