JFK Files: What are they and why is Trump releasing them?
Classified documents were due to be released under law – but timing could prove convenient if they discredit the agencies involved in the Russia investigation

Even if we ignore heavy redactions that will be in the released files – redactions typical in all past releases of such files – and even if we ignore the fact that the CIA has had decades to sanitize any portions that it seriously dislikes, we already know that an important portion of the expected files has disappeared. Yes, that’s right, disappeared.

Files around that most sensitive of all subjects, Lee Harvey Oswald, which were to be part of this release, have already gone missing.

See: https://sputniknews.com/military/201709111057289386-jfk-files-oswald-cia/

This very much reminds me of CIA activity some years back when files on the 1954 coup in Guatemala were legally set for release, and they simply disappeared.

The coup in Guatemala was a CIA operation that deposed a democratic government, that of President Arbenz, and installed a military dictatorship. The CIA was working for interests like America’s banana importers.

Response to another comment about the involvement of secret interests:

What about the American establishment which consists of megacorporation interests defended by their servants at the CIA and Pentagon?

There is no other explanation required.

Comic book terms like the Illuminati, Bilderbergs, etc., only serve confusion and cover-up, much like that idiot term, “conspiracy theory,” a term coined by CIA publicists in 1967, to discredit legitimate doubts about the Warren Report and a term sadly which has been repeated over and over by the corporate press ever since, including this newspaper.

Response to a comment about Trump’s unspoken motive for releasing the files, to discredit an organization, the CIA, which has hounded him:

Maybe, but then isn’t that the kind of thing done by all politicians?

I do think it important to recognize that this release is very much the kind of thing Trump’s political base expects, although they are certainly not the only ones.

The folks who want a wall on Mexico, jail for Hillary Clinton, a pardon for a discreditable sheriff in Arizona, etc., are keen on the release of government secrets, of which there are many in modern imperial America with its seventeen security agencies (yes, seventeen) and worldwide plots and wars.

Trump spoke before being President of releasing the facts on 9/11, of which I am sure there are many embarrassing ones. However, this seems unlikely in view of how close we are in time to the event and how powerful are some of the interests likely involved.
