Sign the petition asking Archivist David Ferreiro to enforce JFK Records Act

With U.S. Archivist David Ferriero inviting and then ignoring public comments calling for declassification of all JFK assassination records, its time to sign Bill Kelly’s updated petition to free the JFK files.

Under the JFK Records Act, Ferriero has responsibility for enforcing the JFK Records Act — and he’s not doing it.

Here’s the story:

The CIA retains 1,100 records, comprising anywhere from 15,000 to 50,000 pages of material. See JFK Facts, May 14, 2013: “1,100 JFK records ignored in Obama push to open records.”

Some of these records are very relevant to the JFK story. See “Top 7 JFK files the CIA still keep secret.”

In prior responses to this request, the Archives officials have cited the fact that these records were already reviewed by the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) under the terms of the JFK Records Act and therefore don’t need to be reviewed again.

The Archives statement is incorrect, according to former ARRB chair Judge John Tunheim.

Archivist David Ferriero needs to be reminded of this fact.

In a November 25, 2013, article, the Boston Globe’s Bryan Bender reported NARA’s claim that “some 1,100 distinct” JFK Act documents are being withheld in their entirety until 2017, and that Judge John “Tunheim and his team did not have access to [these documents that] remain shielded from public view.”

The CIA says the 1,100 records are “not believed relevant” to JFK’s assassination. Under the JFK Records Act that judgment had to be agreed to by the ARRB. According to Tunheim that never happened.

Remind Ferriero: “Tunheim and his team did not have access” to the 1,100 CIA records before they were determined to be “Not Believed Relevant.”

By law these records need to be reviewed under the terms of the JFK Records Act. Since the ARRB no longer exists, the responsibility for enforcing the JFK Records Act belongs to the National Archives and David Ferriero

    Congress passed the Inspector General Act of 1978 (Public Law 95-452) establishing Offices of Inspector General within 12 Federal Agencies.
    In 1988 the Act was revised (Inspector General Act of 1978, as amended) to incorporate other Federal agencies including the National Archives and Records Administration.

    Office of the Inspector General
    We are an independent office within the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) that helps the Agency to more effectively and efficiently ensure ready access to essential evidence. We are responsible for bringing particularly serious problems, abuses, or deficiencies to the immediate
    attention of Congress while keeping the Archivist informed.

    We are agents of positive change striving for continuous improvement in our agencies management
    and program operations and in our own office.

    What We Do

    We perform audits and investigations of NARA, its contractors, and its grantees, to promote economy and efficiency and to prevent and detect fraud, waste, and abuse. Twice a year we provide a Semi-annual Report to Congress that details the work we have done in the previous six months, including results of audits and investigations, proposed corrective actions and other accomplishments.

    President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.

    • I like the idea of getting the Inspector Generals of the various agencies involved.

      They are basically independent and must respond and look into every allegation of wrong doing, and there is plenty of destruction of records and other crimes not being investigated that IGs can look into.

    I signed the petition & sent it to about twenty Facebook friends of which at least ten signed the petition too.

  4. Ronnie Wayne says:

    Thought I’d already signed this. Guess not. Read the terms and conditions, they seem safe. Signed. Please review yourself and sign if you find acceptable.

  5. Please release all declassified documentation to the (NARA)as promised. This has gone on for to long… All the best to Bill Kelly…

    I signed a while ago.

    Where can one get that pin?

    Re: Guidebook to JFK Collection?

    June 23 2014

    It recently came to my attention from a reading of the JFK Act in the Appendix of the Final Report of the ARRB (p. 185) that, “… the Archivist shall prepare and publish a subject guidebook and index to the collection….”

    Can you tell me if such a Subject Guidebook and Index to the JFK Collection has been prepared and published and if so how I can get a copy?

    Thank you,
    Bill Kelly
