Saturday morning, US President Donald J. Trump shocked the nation by announcing via Twitter, that he would be allowing “the long blocked and classified JFK Files to be opened.”
By using his executive powers, the President will authorize the never-before-seen documents currently being housed by the National Archives to be released to the public by Thursday of this coming week, Oct. 26, 2017.
In 1992, Congress mandated that all assassination documents pertaining to the Kennedy assassination be released within 25 years, unless the president asserts that doing so would harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or international affairs.
The documents, which have been hidden for more than have a century include more than 5,000 pages of records.
Next month will mark the 54th anniversary of the President John F. Kennedy assassination, which ended the 35th President’s life on November 22, 1963, Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas.
The release of information will undoubtedly produce even more questions, conspiracy theories and interest in what has been described as the most fascinating murder in modern history.
