For decades conspiracy theorists have been wanting and waiting for the Kennedy assassination papers so they can further the beliefs they want to be true.
The Biden admin has done what they have longed for….released the investigation papers../….well some but NOT all….
The White House on Wednesday released almost 1,500 additional documents tied to the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Experts say there’s little point in searching for a smoking gun within them, reports CNN, with Fox News adding a large number of the documents involve assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. The National Archives and Records Administration said the release of the “previously withheld” records was done to adhere to an October memorandum issued by President Biden that required “releasable records” be disclosed by today’s date.
It’s a step forward in an elongated process that was supposed to wrap up in 2017: the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act passed in 1992 specified all assassination records be made public by October of that year. Then-President Trump balked on releasing some, and Biden allowed for a delay as well. At least 10,000 more are either still withheld or remain partially redacted, as today’s deadline only applied to those that national security agencies have not suggested should continue to be withheld. A second deadline set by Biden of Dec. 15, 2022, was “to allow for the remaining documents to undergo a rigorous security review and then be released,” per CNN.
CNN adds that there’s a third deadline in all this, which is also today, and one that could “be more significant than the documents release.” Biden’s memo reads, “For any record containing information that an agency proposes for continued postponement beyond December 15, 2022, the agency shall provide, no later than December 15, 2021 … an unclassified letter, to be signed by the head of the agency, providing a written description of the types of information for which the agency is proposing continued postponement and reasons for which the agency is proposing continued postponement of such information.” The memo says NARA will review proposed redactions with agencies no later than September 1, 2022.
How disappointing for the conspiracy nerds.
And the wait continues…..

I don’t actually think it is a conspiracy theory to believe Oswald was not solely responsible for JFK’s assassination. I believe it is commonsense to realise that he could never have done that alone, if he was even the shooter. It is also commonsense to be aware that they will never allow the truth to be revealed, in the lifetime of anyone old enough to remember the event.
Best wishes, Pete.
Not to me, I confess ignorance. So WHY so long? If the last living person were a mere 100, than brings it to 2063..
Like so many other issues…..just feeds conspiracies by the silence. chuq
