14. Where Are The Rest Of The Classified Files?
As we just mentioned, in 1992 George H.W. Bush signed the Assassination Records Collection Act, a law that insisted all classified documents related to the assassination must be released to the public by October 26, 2017. The problem is, that not all the documents have been released, with 1,171 records that we know of, still being withheld by the CIA. If you ask the Center for Effective Government, they would put that figure closer to one million.
We learned very little that didn’t know already when the documents were released, but having so many still under lock and key, despite the law, raises more than an eyebrow. Then President Trump did have the power to release everything, but, for a man who likes to muddy the waters from time to time, he chose to veto the release and keep them hidden for a while longer.
