federal archives ^ | 4/26/2018 | federal archives

Posted on 04/26/2018 8:14:46 AM PDT by bitt

In accordance with President Trump’s direction on October 26, 2017, the National Archives today posted 19,045 documents subject to the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 (JFK Act). Released documents are available for download. The versions released today were processed by agencies in accordance with the President’s direction that agency heads be extremely circumspect in recommending any further postponement.

The John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection, established by the National Archives in November 1992, consists of approximately five million pages. The vast majority of the collection has been publicly available without any restrictions since the late 1990s. As permitted by the JFK Act, agencies appealed to the President to continue postponement of certain information beyond October 26, 2017. The President provided agencies with a temporary certification until April 26, 2018 to allow for a re-review of all documents withheld in full or in part under section 5 of the JFK Act and directed agencies to “identify as much as possible that may be publicly disclosed” and to be “extremely circumspect in recommending any further postponement.”

Based on reviews conducted by agencies in accordance with the President’s direction, the National Archives released 3,539 documents on Dec. 15, 10,744 documents on Nov. 17, 13,213 documents on Nov. 9, and 676 documents on Nov. 3 of last year. The 19,045 documents released today represent the final release of documents in accordance with the President’s direction on October 26, 2017.

All documents subject to section 5 of the JFK Act have been released in full or in part. No documents subject to section 5 of the JFK Act remain withheld in full. The President has determined that all information that remains withheld under section 5 must be reviewed again before October 26, 2021 to determine whether continued withholding from disclosure is necessary.

Is this the conspiracy theory that implicates Ted Cruz’s father in the JFK Assassination?

Rumor has it the remaining docs prove Hillary went back in time and had him whacked. She tempted Oswald with her cankles.

It would be a hoot to Photoshop a still frame from Hillary’s “staircase slide” in India into a pic of the Grassy Knoll. There’s a terraced area towards the back, near the oft-discussed fence; someplace like that would be perfect. It would look like the guys helping her down the stairs are grabbing her to hold her for the cops.

The Deep Staters that delayed these docs release for decades are of the same ilk of those holding Clinton docs now.

One of the documents released says that LBJ was in the Texas KKK in the early years of his political career.

There should be a constitutional amendment that *NO* government information may be in any way classified or redacted after 10 years. Not one word or sentence. If taxpayers paid for it, and it’s not current orders of battle, names of secret agents or the exact specs of current weapons every taxpayer has a right to it.
