The much-discussed declassification of the ‘JFK files’ has failed to end the death mystery of former US President John F. Kennedy. In spite of the announcement to declassify all the files that are related to the probe of Kennedy’s assassination, President Donald Trump blocked the release of hundreds of records. It is due to FBI and CIA pressure.
In a memo, Donald says, “I have no choice,” citing “potentially irreversible harm” to national security. The documents approved for the release show federal agents madly chasing after tips. It all is happening since November 22, 1963, when the assassination rumours and leads worldwide. These files also have an information of varied activities of the Kennedy administration, such as its covert efforts to upend Fidel Castro’s government in Cuba.
These files were disclosed on September 14, 1962, in a meeting. The meeting was attended by a group of Kennedy’s senior aides, including brother Robert, the attorney general. The meeting was told the CIA would look into the possibility of sabotaging airplane parts that were to be shipped to Cuba from Canada.
The disclosures of the files have been set on the calendar for 25 years. And now Trump’s decision came down to a last-minute debate with intelligence agencies.
