Correction: the number of secret JFK files may be less than previously reported

Robert responds to my recent post on JFK files.

Black Vault deserves a thanks for putting on line a pdf and excel file of the latest data provided by NARA, but if you take the Black Vault figures to mean that there are thousands of records still withheld in full, that is not correct.

I’m not certain that Robert is correct but I want to air his concerns so that we get an accurate number of still-secret JFK files. …

Q. How many JFK files are still secret? A. More than 3,000

The short answer is, we don’t knows for sure, but BlackVault.com and WhoWhatWhy have the first draft of an answer.

Digging deeper, and with the help and verification of Jimmy Falls of the news agency WhoWhatWhy we came up with the same numbers, using two entirely different methods.It confirms there are 3,082 Documents, totaling 217,114 pages that are not yet released to the public.
