On October 21st, President Trump made a big announcement on Twitter. After so many years of delay, Trump will allow the release of a series of documents regarding the assassination of John F. Kennedy. All these documents are classified, and might be hiding crucial information on the tragic event. The National Archives is scheduled to make them available before October 26th.
Trump wants the Kennedy documents to be released
By Thursday evening, the National Archives should give away an impressive series of over 3,000 classified documents which have been kept away from the public. Moreover, 30,000 others are to join them. These papers have been previously released, but not in their original form.
In 1992, the Congress decided that all documents related to the assassination should be made public in a 25-year range. However, if the President believes they might interfere with law, military, or foreign policy issues, he can stop their release. However, Trump decided they should be made public, and other officials and experts in politics agreed with him.
The release might bring the truth to light
As soon as this news was made public, everybody got alarmed and somehow excited. However, experts say it’s quite unlikely they will find a huge revelation so many conspiracy theories later. What these documents might actually provide some useful information about Lee Harvey Oswald’s visit to Mexico City.
A few weeks before he shot John F. Kennedy, he went on a trip to Mexico City, and to the Cuban and Soviet embassies. Soon after the assassination, the investigation established that the killer went to get visas for the two countries. However, no other information was released or discovered.
There are still many conspiracy theories regarding Kennedy’s assassination, as many people believe the killer had support from CIA. If all the files are finally made public, there are a lot more chances to reveal the truth, and solve the mystery of the assassination once and for all.
Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.
