Trump tweets that all JFK files to be made public

Here's how to view the JFK assassination files once the federal government releases them

President Donald Trump has ordered all documents related to the assassination of former President John Kennedy to be released after consulting with US intelligence agencies.

This idea was sent by Gen. Edward Landsdale, a top Cold War officer who worked with the CIA to help plan the infamous Operation Mongoose, to Gen. Maxwell Taylor-who would soon become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Documents like this prove that the American government is and always has been a separate entity from the American people-and some of those in the unchecked seats of power will not hesitate to sacrifice our lives in the name of advancing their agenda.

In doing so, Trump walked back his previous decision to allow redactions on documents that intelligence agencies claimed compromised national security.

However, the news would not be widely heard in Britain for around half an hour, as the technology of the 1960s struggled to transmit the news as quickly as possible.

Some claim Oswald, who was identified as the assassin by five official investigations into the death, might have contacted Soviet secret services and undergone special training. The important point is that the call was made, according to MI-5 calculations, about 25 minutes before the President was shot. Was it the Mob?

What interests the research community now is perhaps the most fruitful area of further inquiry: Oswald's September 1963 trip to the Soviet and Cuban embassies in Mexico City to defect to Cuba.

Trump's tweets, an official said, were meant as a signal to the intelligence community to take seriously his threats to release the documents in their entirety. Americans witnessed the murder of Oswald on November 24 as he was shot dead by Jack Ruby, a Texas nightclub owner, while the suspect was being transferred to a county jail on live television.

Trump accepted the suggestion, ordering that agencies be "extremely circumspect" about keeping the remaining documents secret at the end of the 180-day assessment.

The memo said it was not the first time in the past year that people in the UK had received similar anonymous calls which were "strangely coincidental in nature".

Hoover, worried: Just a few hours after Lee Harvey Oswald was killed in Dallas, FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover dictated a memo saying the government needed to issue something "so we can convince the public" that Oswald killed Kennedy.

The Warren Commission in 1964 concluded that Oswald had been the lone gunman, and another congressional probe in 1979 found no evidence to support the theory that the CIA had been involved. If there's a secret that you still don't have access to, that's going to be on your mind because it's still this unresolved issue.

President Trump tweeted last week that he wouldn't delay or hold back the publishing of the files.

The full record will still be kept from the public for at least six months - and longer if agencies make a persuasive enough case for continued secrecy.

The televised funeral was attended by thousands along with several heads of state, including former French president Charles de Gaulle.

Phil Shenon, an investigative journalist and author of "A Cruel and Shocking Act: The Secret History of the Kennedy Assassination", said he didn't think the final release would ever satisfy conspiracy theorists.

"A gnat simply does not kill a lion", is how Saul Pett of The Associated Press described what was fueling the search for answers.
