Free the JFK Files

Two years ago the National Archives promised the American public that it would release thousands of pages of still-secret JFK assassination records by the end of 2013. The National Archives, at the behest of the CIA, reneged on this promise. This is contrary to President Obama's pledge to have the most open administration in history and makes it impossible to have a full and open debate when the 50th anniversary of the assassination occurs in less than two years on November 22, 2013.

     A half-century of secrecy is enough.  Free the JFK assassination records now!

      Many thanks to all those who have signed this petition. Just because the NARA and CIA have told us no, they will not include the JFK assassination records in the 2013 National Declassification review as previously announced, they expect us to go home and come back in 2017. Well instead we are ramping up our efforts, continuing the petition drive, taking up a collection to put the petition in a full page ad in Washington and trying to convince Congress to hold JFK Act oversight hearings. If you would like to contribute to this campaign -

      I am continuing my blog and have posted an open letter I wrote to Judge John Tunheim chastising him for his mistaken remarks to a reporter concerning the current status of the JFK Assassination records. I don’t mean to be disrespectful but he should know better than anyone.

      Because it is a matter of history, truth, and responsibility on behalf of the Obama administration to do its duty and release these documents which are a part of the historical belongings of the American public.

      I believe it is time to be transparent with the public. Whatever is being withheld can't possibly hurt anyone or anything by being released. It is a part of our national history and we deserve to know the truth. And the whole truth.
