Breaking a promise, Trump blocked the release of JFK files a year ago

TrumpEarlier this year documentary film maker Randy Benson makes a important point about the JFK file releases of 2018–which left more than 15,000 assassination-related records beyond public view.

President Trump is responsible.

I have no doubt that Trump personally wanted to release all the JFK files. But after tweeting, inaccurately, that the files had been released, Trump protected the last of the CIA and FBI’s assassination-related secrets.

Here’s Trump’s October 26 JFK order, as found on the White House web site. In it, Trump avoided mentioning the CIA by name saying only that

executive departments and agencies (agencies) have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns. I have no choice –today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our Nation’s security.[

That loophole was big enough for the CIA and FBI to drive a cart full of JFK records to Secrecy City.

A review of the National Archives JFK records database, by the non-profit Mary Ferrell Foundation shows that 15,834 JFK documents remain wholly or partially secret. (Full disclosure: I’m the vice president of the foundation.)

The results were dispiriting.

There was the will of the people, as expressed through law enacted by Congress The JFK Records Act, was unanimously approved by Congress. It was signed in to law by a Republican president. It was implemented by a Democratic president. It called for full disclosure as of October 26, 2017.

Then there was the will of the CIA. The secretive agency prevailed.

Benson’s tweet expressed a point that was hard to refute.

    The very fact that President Trump did not allow all of the files to be released, is not surprising. It is rather sad, considering that he was going to “drain the swamp” in DC.Seems like the swamp drained him on this one.

  2. Kennedy63 says:

    A person with a long history in government, and with deep political, business, and criminal ties – yes, FBI Director, J. E. Hoover! – once stated that what he knew about the JFK assassination (the truth), would disrupt the political process if publicly revealed (The Conspiracy is the Evidence). Hoover and top FBI executives were instrumental players in the JFK assassination “investigation” who, operationally, along with top personnel in the Secret Service, CIA, DPD, Dallas DA, and Texas Atty Gen., ensured that Lee Harvey Oswald is forever cast as the deranged lone assassin of JFK. All of these agencies, since 1963, have been cited for corruption and lawlessness. Gotta love those law and order Fascists!! Our government operates according to a given network of people, in key positions of power, advancing a specific world view. Currently, the network in power has a decidedly Fascist worldview. We’ve already lost the government; vote because you are a “good citizen” and believe we still live in a democracy. November 22, 1963, shatters that illusion depending, of course, on your worldview.
