National Archives solicits comments on the opening of JFK records

The National Declassification Center has once again requested public comment on topics for priority declassification in opening up of government records to the public.

One JFK Facts reader has submitted the comment below:


Others who want to see all JFK records declassified should advise the NDC — and National Archivist @DavidFerreiro — what their declassification priorities should be:

And send us a copy, I’ll post the best of the pro-release comments here.

Concerned Citizen: April 2, 2014 at 8:48 pm, “The most requested historical topic for declassification prioritization on the Public Interest Declassification Board (PIDB) blog has been the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy. In light of the very strong public interest evident during the 50th anniversary of that tragedy last fall as well as on the PIDB blog, the National Declassification Center should prioritize the remaining classified records related to the assassination for declassification.”

    I sent NDC this comment a few minutes ago, Jeff:

    JFK historian/researcher/investigative journalist/webmaster Jefferson Morley has a list of the top JFK files & records he & his readers feel should be released before all other withheld material remaining listed at his website To citizens these withheld files are an enslavement of American history that prevents American children (including yours) the opportunity to receive a complete, unrestricted education on the life, death & events occurring during the Presidency of John F. Kennedy. Just as slavery of humans was abolished during the lifetime of Abraham Lincoln, the slavery of citizens’ history concerning the JFK assassination needs to be abolished by your organization immediately to physically demonstrate America is true to its democratic foundation.

    I’m not as skilled & eloquent in the gift of appealing sentence construction as you are, Jeff but I do hope it was good enough to be cleared by their moderator for posting. The eloquent words are, in my opinion, best said here by Jeff Morley & his staff.

      Your enslavement metaphor resonates with me.

      Even when I was a child, I was struck how the Soviet Union controlled the history taught to its students and other citizens. I believed naively I was getting the straight dope from my teachers. But I believed what the Soviet Union was doing was a grave crime against its citizenry. I still do.

      Fast forward to 2014. I’m learning, even until today, about how U.S. leaders have misrepresented, lied about, and obscured U.S. history. Yesterday and today in this regard I read an excerpt of Greg Parker’s new book “Oswald’s Cold War” at CTKA. It’s a most revealing excerpt about the Korean War and germ warfare.

      Excellent words you’ve written, Brad. Enslavement of history for sure.

    Could not help but notice the motto of the NDC blog: “Releasing all we can, protecting what we must.”
    Seems confessional relative to JFK.

  3. Charles Beyer says:

    Great perspectives for the NDC to consider if their intent is genuine. Jeff Morley thru his website speaks for a lot of people who are sick of the historical censorship. Those that censor our nation’s history are indeed slave masters. Regardless of the justification given we, as a people, cannot possibly learn from the mistakes of the past if we don’t know what they were, can we?

  4. Jonathan says:

    I like the enslavement metaphor, but I know for sure that the modern-day JFK cover-up is purely a bureaucratic response. It’s not sinister, frustrating as it may be to the research community.

    Bureaucracies have a central goal, which is to protect the bureaucracy. This is true whether we’re talking the Teacher’s Union, the CIA, the Pentagon, or the IRS. Think of what’s at stake if the bureaucracy becomes vulnerable to criticism; that can’t be allowed to happen.
