Over 13,000 new US President John F Kennedy (JFK) files have been published, but hundreds more have been withheld.
The publication of the record is not anticipated to provide significant new information about the nearly 60 years ago assassination of US President John F. Kennedy.
Numerous critical papers regarding the 1963 assassination of US President John F. Kennedy were kept hidden for an additional year due to "national security" concerns, despite the release of thousands of documents relating to the crime.
Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine and communist activist who had lived in the former Soviet Union, was believed to have acted alone, according to the commission led by Chief Justice Earl Warren. The disclosure of 13,173 documents on Thursday was not anticipated to reveal any new shocking information or alter this conclusion.
The most recent cache, however, will be helpful for historians studying the circumstances surrounding the assassination.
Kennedy was shot and killed on November 22, 1963, while traveling through Dallas in his motorcade. He was 46 years old. The theory that Kennedy's assassination was the result of a complex conspiracy has been examined in thousands of books, articles, TV series, and films.
Although none has provided concrete evidence, they continue to have significant cultural weight. Oswald was fatally murdered by nightclub owner Jack Ruby two days after Kennedy was assassinated.
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was the source of several of the records that were made public on Thursday, including those that dealt with Oswald's contacts and travels.
The requests from the Warren Commission's assassination investigation are the subject of other documents. According to the records, the US government began investigating Oswald in December 1960—nearly three years before Kennedy was killed and following his aborted attempt to emigrate to the Soviet Union in 1959.
According to the National Archives, 515 records are still completely concealed, and 2,545 more are withheld in part.
Jefferson Morley, vice president of the Mary Ferrell Foundation, questioned why there are still redactions and withheld information about Kennedy's assassination decades after the fact. The Mary Ferrell Foundation sued the Biden administration over the delay of the document dump in October.
If the CIA had a "operational interest in Oswald" at the time of the killing, that is "what the CIA has hidden," according to Morley, who spoke to the Washington Post.
CIA agents in Mexico City "intercepted a telephone conversation" Oswald made in October from that city to the Soviet embassy there "using his own identity" and speaking "broken Russian," according to a memo from December 1963.
In order to get to Russia, Oswald planned to pass through Cuba, according to the records. When Oswald was killed, there were immediate worries that Ruby might have been somehow connected to Oswald.
The Central Intelligence Agency has no proof that Ruby and Lee Harvey Oswald ever knew each other, were affiliated, or might have been related in any way, according to a newly revealed September 1964 memo to the presidential commission looking into the assassination.
Except for those that the president authorized for prolonged withholding, Congress had mandated in 1992 that all remaining sealed files relating to the investigation into Kennedy's death be entirely made public through the National Archives by October 26, 2017. Donald Trump, who was president at the time, released a number of records in 2017, but he decided to release the remaining information gradually.
