JFK on Secrecy

Responding to President Biden’s Oct. 22 letter on JFK files, Jerry sent this:

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and to secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and u warranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it.” — President John F. Kennedy April 27, 1961.

  1. The series of events leading up to the continuation of the cover up surrounding the JFK assassination is an embarrassment to this country. Obviously the truth behind why President Kennedy was assassinated is the problem. Was national security the answer or the excuse? My guess is we’ll never know. But the lone nut theory is pure crap-o-la. Even an idiot can figure that out. I wouldn’t doubt it if the remaining records that haven’t been released are going to go through another round of sanitizer.

    Surprising coming just after Bay of Pigs invasion and with subsequent policies against Castro. Fine rhetoric though!!!
