Some positive attributes of the extension of the JFK Act

Bill Kelley looks on the bright side:

There are other positive attributes of the latest Presidential directive, as by withholding records and redacting them until further review in October 2021 keeps the issue alive, and by annoying the public at large for skirting around the JFK Act, could inspire Congress to hold the necessary oversight hearings that could put on the hot seat those administrators who intentionally destroyed assassination records, and determine what became of the many missing records.

    I’d like to know, if the secret service destroyed records in the 90’s when ARRB was requesting pertaining to their interviews of two snipers detained in Chicago Nov 1-2,63 and destroyed records of their presidential protection plans for fall of 63, why hasn’t ANYONE at the secret service been indicted and imprisoned for those acts? Both the people who destroyed records and those who ordered the destruction?

    How can they not be considered as accomplices in the cover-up and therefore part of the group who committed treason by murdering or covering up the murder of the president?

    How did congress just, let it go?

    Do they have no respect for law anymore?

      In the recently released JFK documents there is an interview with Abraham Bolden that provides a bit more information about the Chicago incident.

    It’s called “abdication of authority” or “inertia of bureaucracy” or “cover your ass.” The former and latter are willful acts; the middle one can be a witting tool devised by both the former and latter. It’s called screw the public. The government, at least the parts continuing to engage in withholding documents, has very little concern for the public’s interest. Their is the more lofty, secretive provenance of NATIONAL INSECURITY.

    one aspect of reluctance to release operational files may lie in the arena of possible subjection of the CIA to international law, the world court in the Hague by countries who can prove damage done to life and limb. Guatemala, the Dominican Reupublic and others may be able to sue for a settlement or reparations.

    • Gerry Simone says:

      Not only that drewelow (call it fall-out from running their own “Murder Inc.” as LBJ alluded to), but the perception of incompetence, negligence, tacit collusion or acquiescence in the murder of the 35th President.

  4. theNewDanger says:

    The whole point of the “extension” is to faux-legitimize “sanitization” of records that BELONG to the republic i.e. the people. This “the extension of the JFK Act” is an act of treason.
