Trump Releases Kennedy Assassination Files but Holds Some Back

President Trump today made the following statement on the release. The total number of files being given to the public amounts top about 2,800.

The American public expects — and deserves — its Government to provide as much access as possible to the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records (records) so that the people may finally be fully informed about all aspects of this pivotal event. Therefore, I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted. At the same time, executive departments and agencies (agencies) have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns. I have no choice –today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our Nation’s security. To further address these concerns, I am also ordering agencies to re-review each and every one of those redactions over the next 180 days. At the end of that period, I will order the public disclosure of any information that the agencies cannot demonstrate meets the statutory standard for continued postponement of disclosure under section 5(g)(2)(D) of the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 (44 U.S.C. 2107 note) (the “Act”).

BTW, Politico has a good guide to viewing the files on your own.

Where Were You When it Happened?

As most of you I’m sure realize, today marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy.

I know some of you are old enough to remember, and it’s long been an axiom that everyone recalls where they were when they got the news that terrible day. I wondered if some of you might want to share your experience and your thoughts in the comment section below. I’d be so interested to see it, and I know many of our readers would too.

Thanks, and God Bless President Kennedy.

Kennedy Never Said He Was a Jelly Doughnut!

Thought you might like this website, Angry History. It’s new and promises to be a good one.

The Kennedy quote is part of a list of ten statements that are commonly attributed to various presidents – but which they never said.

I’m sure President Obama would like to get on the list for a few of his accidentally revealing remarks. Not to mention Vice President Biden and his endless series of whoppers.
