The National Archives and Records Administration released thousands of previously classified files related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.
At the age of 46, Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963 while his motorcade was driving through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas.
1992 Congress enacted the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, the “instructed that all materials related to the assassination be placed in a single collection within the National Archives and Records Administration.” The JFK Act required that all records related to the assassination of JFK be released by October 2017, unless the Disclosure would harm national security or intelligence sources, or violate privacy.

The sources claim, “The new information will be intriguing to historians and assassination researchers who have spent nearly six decades trying to connect the dots about a turning point in American history — and trying to understand what possible justification the government might have for to withhold information about the assassination of a President.”
