Why Obama hesitates to release the CIA’s JFK records

In this extended interview with Russia Today, Russ Baker of WhoWhatWhy explains why so many JFK records remain secret (as much as 50,000 pages worth). He says President Obama may have “some “trepidation” about releasing long-secret CIA records related to the assassination of President Kennedy in 2013.

I think he’s right.

Baker argues that JFK’s assassination in 1963 narrowed the range of choices in the political culture, at least when it comes to U.S. foreign policy and militarism.

“Ever since JFK the range of options are all very narrow,” he says. “There is no broad disagreement about pursuing foreign wars, about what U.S. interests really are.”

Baker, author of “Family of Secrets,” calls on supporters of President Obama to write to the president calling for release of 50,000 pages of CIA documents related to JFK’s assassination. [For more details, see “Top 5 JFK files Brennan should make public”.] He wonders, though, if Obama might have some “trepidation” about doing so.

I’m not sure that Obama worries or needs to worry about being assassinated, but I do think he will have some trepidation about crossing an entrenched CIA bureaucracy that is intent on keeping JFK assassination secrets in the name of “national security.”

If Obama realized that ordering disclosure of JFK records would be the fulfillment of his first-day-in-office pledge to “usher in a new era of open government,” perhaps he could overcome his trepidation.

    In this interview, Russ Baker is measured and precise. But non-responsive at times.

  2. John F says:

    Its interesting to note that every President since Nixon has had a “minder” in office, save one. The “minder”, who is usually on the white House staff or in the cabinet, serves a role of keeping the chief executive in line and reminding him how far he can go. witness for example, the blatant manipulation of Obama by Rahm Emmanuel, his first chief of staff.

    And the only President who didn’t have a minder? George H.W. Bush, of course, for he was a minder himself. He and the White House staff played Reagan like a musical instrument. In effect, George the first had a twelve year term in office.

    And what agency was George HW Bush previously director of, by the way?

    To paraphrase Lincoln- A national security state and a Democracy cannot coexist.

    As an Australian I find that your government is full of Hippocrates ,no wonder the rest of the world takes what your government say as laughable,you preach that your so righteous and hide behind security laws when it suits them ,it would appear the American way is to lie to your people and watch them eat it up, I find it ironic that the President who found the word “secrete “in a free society repugnant ,was murdered in such a way that it must have been a message to the world,(
