Biden refused to declassify Kennedy assassination documents KXan 36 Daily News

The murder was then investigated by a special commission, and in 1992 the United States Congress decided to collect all the data in the file and make public those that had not yet been declassified. The publication began in 2017. According to the archives, about three percent of the documents on one of the most high-profile murders of the 20th century remain classified, with some of them planned to be made public in late June.

However, with the filing of the files, Biden indefinitely postponed the declassification of some of the data. He explained his decision by “the need to protect intelligence operations, law enforcement and foreign policy, which in importance take precedence over the interests of the public in the disclosure of materials.” From the wording, it can be assumed that the value of classified documents is not so much in the presence in them of some sensational details about the assassination of Kennedy, but in the sources and methods by which these data were obtained. But no further explanation is provided in the corresponding memo on the White House website.

According to the official story, Kennedy was shot to death in Dallas on November 22, 1963, by a self-made Lee Harvey Oswald, who, in turn, was assassinated by local nightclub owner Jack Ruby two days after. The sudden death of a single suspect and the ambiguity of the investigation still provide plenty of ground for alternative theories about the masterminds of the crime, from CIA-connected Cuban exiles to then-Vice President Lyndon Johnson, who became head of the House.
