Why is the government still hiding JFK assassination files? So asks Robbie Robertson, host of the Out of Blank podcast and a young man with legit questions about history and secrecy and the JFK story. Here’s our conversation.
This is a follow up to my earlier post about how the CIA read Lee Harvey Oswald’s mail before President Kennedy was killed. I’m trying to figure out if any of the letters that were captured by the Agency’s HTLINGUAL mail surveillance program are publicly available. The final report of the Assassination Records Review Board does not mention any. Does that mean no Oswald letters were intercepted? If you have any insight/knowledge into this issue, send me an email.

Rep, Jim McGovern (D-Mass) Credit: Wikimedia Commons. Expressing concern about the delay in the release of thousands of secret JFK assassination files, three Congressmen are seeking a meeting with “the appropriate Executive Branch official with knowledge and relevant information of the decision to postpone the release of the remaining records.” Reps. Steve Cohen (D-Tenn), Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) and JIm McGovern (D-Mass.) signed a March 29 letter to President Biden saying it was “imperative that the remaining documents be released as soon as possible.”
