The JFK assassination files have long been the subject of much discussion. Recently, it became public knowledge that yet another deadline for unleashing the remains of the top-secret files had neared. That, uh, being the 26 October 2017. Meanwhile, on that day, Trump per reports, decided to only release part of the files rather than all of them.
"I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted," NBC News quotes President Trump as stating in a memo. Per NBC, some 2,800 files were released while others were not. According to officials, the decision to halt some of them from being released came at the discretion and the pressure of other government agencies both domestic and foreign -- citing security concerns.
