The Obama administration is seeking public input on “Transforming the Security Classification System” at a public forum in Washington D.C. on Thursday, Nov. 21.
Were you bothered by this JFK Facts story? 1,100 JFK records ignored in Obama push to open records.
Or this one? Top 7 JFK files the CIA still keep secret.
If you think the government should practice full disclosure on JFK, then please submit a concise comment with specific proposals to the National Archives’ Transforming Classification blog.
Just click here.
One faithful JFK Facts reader has already submitted his comment:
“We are seeing a tidal wave of public interest in the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President Kennedy. The Archives is holding at least 1,170 classified documents related to that event, and there are extensive redactions to previously released records. On November 21 and in light of the public interest your board should recommend that these materials be immediately processed for release to the public.”
