A 1992 act mandated the disclosure of all records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy no later than 25 years after its signing, by October 26, 2017 — today. Documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden and published for the first time today indicate that the NSA has kept secret for decades its efforts to monitor Cuban agents’ communications in the aftermath of the event.
Much of what we can still hope to learn about the JFK assassination hinges on President Donald Trump. The sensational potential of the release is not lost on the president, who over the weekend tweeted that: “Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened.” In this photo, cameras used to record the assassination of John F. Kennedy are seen in the former site of the Texas School Book Depository on Oct. 8, 2013 in Dallas.
