“We don’t even know how many [classified JFK records] there are,” the Oscar-wnning director, told RS’s Danielle Bacher.

“But we know from former Washington Post writer Jefferson Morley, writing on October 25 in the Dallas Morning News, the CIA has acknowledged that, in a sworn affidavit, that the agency retains 1,100 records related to the assassination that have never been made public,” Stone said.

He went on:

“These files are not believed relevant to the death, but they concern the operations of six CIA employees involved in the JFK story who reported directly to James Angleton, the head of the CIA’s counterintelligence staff, and Deputy Director Richard Helms, who attacked the film. These people were not investigated and they all hated Kennedy.”

    The Obama administration should immediately set up a special office in the National Archives to locate and release records that could be related to the JFK assassination. This would be something like the Nazi hunting OSI office that once existed in the Justice Department. The Washington Post this morning declares that the nation is stuck on the JFK assassination. We need some appropriate official action to move forward.
