According to a tweet by the 45th President of the United States on Saturday morning, the much anticipated and highly classified government documents, relating to the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy will finally be released.
The release will included thousands of never – before – seen documents, information that has been stored in the national archives. In 1992 law was made to allow the release (if authorised by the sitting president) to occur by the deadline October 26th.
Following this decision there has been some opposition presented by intelligence agencies, some even claiming that such a move would be damaging to national security interests.
The White House made this statement;
“The president believes that these documents should be made available in the interests of full transparency unless agencies provide a compelling and clear national security or law enforcement justification otherwise,” the statement said.
Most historians and conspiracy theorists have there eye on a missing chapter in the assassination narrative…the mysterious trip of Lee Harvey Oswald a week before the assassination.
A six – day trip the assassin paid for that was spent in Mexico. Allegedly there he would speak with Cuban and Soviet spies, little else is known.
Synonymous with this is Trumps allusion to the father of Ted Cruz during his presidential campaign. “You know, his father was with Lee Harvey Oswald prior to Oswald’s being — you know, shot,” Mr. Trump told Fox News in an interview in May 2016, as he battled the Texas senator for the nomination.
Due to be released today we are eagerly waiting in the sidelines for a new generation of conspiracy theorists to interpret the thousands of documents. Perhaps once and for all proving there is more to the story of the JFK assassination.
