Default JFK Assassination Documents to be released this year

I know some of you have an interest in the Assassination of President Kennedy, so I thought I'd mention that a large batch of documents previously under a "not to be released for 25 years" order are coming due this month to be made public.
Maybe.

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry...08619f2205?a59

Deadline is October 26, but some could still be held back for "national security" reasons.

Some WILL be held back... but not to protect national security.

Certainly I would welcome the release of these documents in the hope they will provide something more of the truth. I don't believe the lone gunman verdict one bit and I'm very doubtful that LHO was quite the marksman they portray! I've often thought that LBJ and also the arms industry had a lot to gain from these events (at least from what I've read).

Slightly confused as to the 25 year prohibition though - that would place their origins in 1992 whereas the event took place in 1963. Or is it that it was an extra 25 year period slapped on a previous 25 years, for example (or thereabouts).

If the documents somehow supported the verdict reached (and the magic bullet), why would they need to be unreleased for so long unless they implicated someone of importance? In which case, of course, that could easily provide support for a wider conspiracy. Might just re-kindle an interest in this subject.

I was confused by that at first, but it seems a judgement was made in 1992 to withold them for another 25 years.

I saw a documentary a while ago, which suggested that Oswald was the lone gunman, but the fatal headshot was fired accidentally by a secret service agent in the car behind, as he drew out his gun. Which may explain any cover-up. Incompetence rather than conspiracy.

This might help clarify why it is of significance.

In November 1964, two months after the publication of its 889-page report, the Commission published twenty-six volumes of supporting documents, including the testimony or depositions of 552 witnesses and more than 3,100 exhibits.[17] All of the commission's records were then transferred on November 23 to the National Archives. The unpublished portion of those records was initially sealed for 75 years (to 2039) under a general National Archives policy that applied to all federal investigations by the executive branch of government,[18] a period "intended to serve as protection for innocent persons who could otherwise be damaged because of their relationship with participants in the case.Ē[19] The 75-year rule no longer exists, supplanted by the Freedom of Information Act of 1966 and the JFK Records Act of 1992. By 1992, 98 percent of the Warren Commission records had been released to the public.[20] Six years later, at the conclusion of the Assassination Records Review Board's work, all Warren Commission records, except those records that contained tax return information, were available to the public with redactions.[21] The remaining Kennedy assassination related documents are scheduled to be released to the public by October 26, 2017,[22] twenty-five years after the passage of the JFK Records Act.[23]

I donít think thereíll be any revelations there. Itís case closed. Oswald did it on his own. Absolutely no doubt at all.

And a local mafioso silenced him out of sympathy for Jackie.

Nothing will come out of this. Anything worth reading will have been redacted to hell and back.

It will give the conspiracy theorists something new to build their fantasies around I suppose. Iím wondering what will be next?

An assassin firing bullets from an umbrella? Nope, itís been done.

An accidental shot from a CIA agent in a car behind Kennedyís? Nope, itís been done.

An assassin firing from a sewer in Dealey Plaza? Nope, itís been done.

Kennedy killed by Woody Harrelsonís dad? Nope, itís been done.

What about Kennedyís body being operated on whilst on Airforce One to disguise the wound and make it look like a shot from behind? Nope, itís been done.

Iím sure theyíll come up with something

Hmm, but I'll never be convinced that THAT shot wasn't fired from the front and side - not at all. There's nothing anyone can say that will change my view, and the magic bullet theory is ridiculous fantasy for me.
