The assassination of John F. Kennedy changed the world forever. Now, two modern politicians are looking for answers about the biggest political assassinations of our time.
Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.) are working hard to force the intelligence agencies to give up valuable information about JFK’s assassination, according to Washington Examiner. The JFK Records Act of 1992 requires government groups to disclose all information and records that pertain to JFK’s assassination by October 26, 2017 — however, the intelligence community is refusing to comply.
Across the 1990’s there were around four million pages of information and records released that relate to the untimely death of JFK. It has been discovered that there are an additional 100,000 pages of information regarding the assassination that have not been released.
A loophole in the 1992 act allows the CIA, FBI, and similar government agencies to delay the timely release of information. If the agency in question has the consent of the president, they can delay the release of records until after October 26th.
Jones clarified that he believes that the American people should have the resources needed to know the truth behind the assassination of JFK. Furthermore, the government is obligated to release any data they have on his death and how it happened.
“I want to make sure that the information that is owed the American people is made available,” Jones stated during an interview with Alternet. He went on to say, “The American people are sick and tired of not being given the truth.”
The hope is that the CIA will release the information before the deadline — toward the end of October. There is no indication that the CIA will delay, but considering how close it is to the deadline, people like Jones are concerned.
Unbelievably, the JFK Record Act passed with a 435-0 vote back in 1992. Every single Democrat, Republican, and Independent wanted the truth exposed to the public.
Now, Grassley and Jones are trying to track down the people who originally voted the bill in back in 1992. The goal is to get enough of these people together to push for the full release of information that has been promised to the public for many years.
Intelligence community is refusing to comply with JFK Records Act of 1992. Should they reveal all the records?
Jones was a teenager at the time of the assassination. He has relayed that the day that JFK was assassinated is still clear in his mind.
“I’m from the generation that remembers the tragedy of Dallas very vividly,” Jones stated. His personal stake in the events of that day no doubt has caused him to double down and demand that the information is released.
Jones is highly interested in getting this information. He stated that he has a number of questions that he hopes will be answered by the currently-unreleased documents. Even after 50 years, he wants to know if Oswald did this alone, or if he had accomplices, and if he did, then who were they? These questions are just the tip of the iceberg. By the time it is all said and done, we could see a rewrite of history based on these bombshell documents.
