There are certain portions of American history that our nation is truly obsessed with, and a mystery from our past may come unraveled this week thanks to President Trump.
We’re talking, of course, about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy; an event ingrained in American history and in U.S. folklore due to the wild conspiracy theories that have sprouted up surrounding the event.
From “magic bullet” theories, to the Cuban mafia, all the way up to the supposed “illuminati” and New World Order, there are hundreds, if not thousands of hypotheses out in the ether regarding the events of that fateful autumn day in Dallas, Texas. While few can agree on which of the alleged theories could actually hold water, nearly everyone is certain that something far more sinister was at work than what we were told by the official government story.
Now, over five decades later, a cache of confidential documents on the case are poised to go public, barring one signature by President Donald Trump…a signature that Trump recently hinted that he wouldn’t provide.
“President Trump said Saturday that he intends to allow the release of long-classified files on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy, a move that could shed light on a tragedy that has stirred conspiracy theories for decades.
“The National Archives has until Oct. 26 to disclose the remaining thousands of never-seen government documents on the 1963 assignation, unless Trump changes course and tries to block their release.
“’Subject to the receipt of further information, I will be allowing, as President, the long blocked and classified JFK FILES to be opened,’ Trump tweeted Saturday morning.
“However, to what additional information the president was referring was unclear.
“The CIA and FBI, whose records make up the bulk of the batch, won’t say whether they’ve appealed to the Trump administration to keep them under wraps.
“‘The American public deserves to know the facts, or at least they deserve to know what the government has kept hidden from them for all these years,’ Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics and author of a book about Kennedy, said in an email to The Associated Press.”
Trump’s willingness to allow the release of these documents comes at a time in which We The People are involved in a political awakening in our nation, and could signal a new era of government transparency.
Just days ago, the CIA made public their hopes of keeping these documents out of the public eye, but, of course, no reason was given for their opposition. Furthermore, an analysis of the documents purported to be included in the upcoming release revealed that a great many of the files surrounding assassin Lee Harvey Oswald were predictably missing from the archives.
