Additional data related to the killing of former President John F. Kennedy have now reportedly been made public, according to a Friday announcement from the National Archives and data Administration (NARA).
Following President Biden’s request that agencies evaluate all redactions in records and make all material available, the documents were made public.
NARA worked with other agencies to disclose 2,672 more records with fewer redactions than in earlier releases.
The President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 applies to the recently made public Kennedy records, which may be seen online.
In a statement, Dr. Colleen Shogan, the 11th archivist of the United States, emphasized the value of openness.
Prior to Congress passing the JFK Records Act of 1992, which instructed the National Archives and Records Administration to compile a collection of records on the former president’s assassination, the Warren Commission’s report on Kennedy’s death was initially kept secret until 2039.
All assassination documents were supposed to be made public by 2017, but past presidents Donald Trump and Joe Biden repeatedly delayed the disclosures, claiming guidance from the FBI, CIA, and other intelligence agencies.
Thousands of papers were made public by Trump throughout his presidency, although the majority of them had redactions.
