The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) quietly announced the release of additional records regarding the assassination of John F. Kennedy.
“In accordance with President Biden’s memorandum of June 30, 2023 the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) posted all documents with newly released information subject to the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992,” the National Archives said in a press release.
“On December 15, 2022, President Biden directed agencies to jointly review remaining redactions in records, disclosing all information except when the strongest possible reasons counsel otherwise,” the press release continued.
“NARA worked in concert with agencies to complete this review and adhere to the President’s direction. Since April 15, 2023, 2,672 additional documents have been released in full or with fewer redactions.”

“At the National Archives, we believe in the importance of government transparency and the accessibility of information. The dedicated and detailed work completed by NARA staff and by our partners and stakeholder agencies is an excellent representation of how we can collaborate together to ensure that the maximum amount of information is made available to the American people, while we protect what we must,” Dr. Colleen Shogan, 11th Archivist of the United States, said.
“I have every confidence that the NDC’s implementation of these plans offers a clear path forward for public transparency and the timely release of additional information as circumstances warrant,” she added.
“This action reflects his [Joe Biden] instruction that all information related to President Kennedy’s assassination should be released except when the strongest possible reasons counsel otherwise,” said White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre.
In other words, documents that show who’s responsible for JFK’s death will remain sealed.
Karine Jean-Pierre says that the admin will be declassifying all of the records from the JFK assassination "except when the strongest possible reasons council otherwise."

The Washington Examiner reports:
The archives released 2,672 documents for public consumption by the 2023 deadline, including 1965 testimonies from the Warren Commission, which was established by President Lyndon Johnson. The memorandum was signed by Biden in December.
The largest block, which included more than 1,000 documents, was released on Tuesday. But some documents still contain redacted information because of national security concerns.
The memorandum was part of the 1992 President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, which required the government to release all files related to the Kennedy assassination by late 2017, with the exception of documents that could harm national security.
Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963. An investigation concluded that the assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, had acted alone. But historians have long questioned the investigation and hoped the documents could reveal more about Oswald’s actions, including who potentially helped.
Many Americans believe the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was responsible for JFK’s assassination, including his nephew, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
From the New York Post:
Democratic White House contender Robert Kennedy Jr. blames the CIA for the Nov. 22, 1963, assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy — proclaiming it “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
Kennedy made the bombshell accusation about a murder that’s sparked many conspiracy theories during an interview Sunday with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable.”
“There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point,” Kennedy said of JFK’s assassination in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas.
“The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder, and in the cover-up.”
Kennedy Jr. cited James Douglas book “JFK and the Unspeakable” as compiling the most evidence on the topic — and labeled denials of the CIA’s role as a “60 year cover-up.”
