“Know the Truth and the Truth Shall Set You Free”

The Committee for an Open Archives (COA) is a non-profit organization established to draft, introduce and pass Congressional legislation to declassify and accelerate the release of documents and testimony related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The COA is run by volunteers and its work funded through donations and membership subscriptions.

The COA intends to pursue this goal through coordinating research on a computerized network, requesting specific documents through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) conducting an educational effort to inform the public about what information is being censored and initiating an intense lobby effort in Congress to get the necessary legislation passed as soon as possible.

On January 7, 1990 the New York Times ran an editorial entitled, “Mysteries That Matter,” which urged the Russians and Eastern European countries to unlock their files for everyone to see, particularly in regards to the matter of “Who was Lee Harvey Oswald?”

“Perhaps the Eastern European archives can finally resolve conflicting stories from various Soviet defectors about Oswald’s ties, or lack of them, with Soviet intelligence,” the editorial read, concluding, “an honest reckoning of the past is a crucial step to a more open society.”

More significant than what is contained in the Russian and Eastern European government files concerning Oswald is the information contained in our own – American archives locked away until 50 years after the conclusion of the House Select Committee on the Assassination (HSCA) in 2029.
