Why is this date important? Because it’s the 25th anniversary of the passage of the JFK Records Collection Act of 1992. But the significance goes beyond the normal anniversary nostalgia. Here is a section from the JFK Records Act:
Some caveats are necessary. We really don’t have much idea how the Trump presidency is going to work, at least not compared to any recent president. Trump himself doesn’t seem to have a clear plan, and on relevant policy issues, like governmental secrecy, he has no fixed policy positions.
The political reality is this: If Trump wants to be seen as the president who ended government’s ongoing, fifty three year old cover-up of relevant JFK files, he has a golden opportunity.
What will President Trump do come October 26, 2017 when all of the government’s remaining JFK files are due, by law, to be made public?
How to improve JFK Facts? I asked. Michael says:
“First thoughts: An unrelenting campaign to educate the public about the critical importance of October 2017. If the release of information is not acceptable we must demand a new top-to-bottom investigation of the assassination, with a particular focus on the political issues of the day.”

HIs violent death was a terrible loss for the country. Yet the CIA still hasn’t released all of its JFK assassination files. Next month, I will publish a short ebook that exposes this sorry state of affairs and explains what can be done about it in 2017.
Candid interviews with retired CIA personnel and deep research into declassified records illuminate an untold story: the secret files of JFK’s enemies in the clandestine service.
One place where the peculiar similarities of Australia and the United States converge is interest in JFK assassination story. Read more
Indeed, the complex reality of how a president of the United States came to be gunned down on a sunny day, and no one lost his liberty — or his job — continues to live and grow in popular memory.
If the United States could survive the release of the Snowden documents, it can withstand the release of the JFK assassination records.
I’m pleased to announce the publication of my first ebook, CIA & JFK: The Secret Assassination Files, on June 10.
I wanted to let JFK Facts readers know first because you have inspired me to keep after this subject. The clash of ideas that takes place on this site is a reminder that there are lots (and lots) of people who care about the JFK story and care about getting it right.
Jacob Hornberger, the publisher and I, chose to publish the book on the June 10, 2016 to coincide with President Kennedy speech at American University on June 10, 1963, in which JFK articulated a “strategy for peace.” JFK’s refusal to invade Cuba, his restraint in Vietnam, his determination to ratify a nuclear test ban strategy were all expressions of this strategy.
