CRS INSIGHT President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection: Toward Final Disclosure of Withheld Records in October 2017

Related Author R. Eric Petersen | R. Eric Petersen, Specialist in American National Government (epetersen@crs.loc.gov, 7-0643) 

Congress enacted the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 (JFK Records Act), as amended, to bring together all materials related to the November 22, 1963, assassination of the 35th President that were created or held by a government office, and to house those records in a single collection in the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA). 

Today, NARA reports that there are 268,116 records comprising more than five million pages of paper documents in the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection. Of those, NARA states that "approximately 88% of the records … are open in full." Another 11% are available in part with sensitive portions removed. Approximately 1% of documents identified as assassination-related, numbering between 3,000 and 3,600 records according to some media reports, remains withheld in full. 

The JFK Records Act, 44 U.S.C. 2107 Note, set a deadline of 25 years from its enactment for each assassination record to be publicly disclosed, subject to some limitations. The deadline falls on October 26, 2017, and has raised some interest about the potential extent of disclosure of redacted portions of records that are partially available, and those that are withheld in full. No legislation related to the JFK Records Act has been introduced in the 115th Congress. 

The October 26 deadline marks the end of the final, statutorily mandated assessment of assassination records, and might mark the conclusion of a long process of records preservation and assessment for the suitability of their release that began in the days and weeks following President Kennedy's death. 

The JFK Records Act prohibited the destruction or alteration of assassination records, and required each government office, including Congress, various investigatory commissions and panels, executive branch entities, independent agencies, courts, and involved state or local law enforcement agencies, to identify and organize its assassination records, determine which were officially disclosed or publicly available in a complete, unredacted form, and which were covered by the Act's standards for postponement of public disclosure. 

Officially disclosed records were to be made available immediately in 1992, following enactment of the JFK Records Act. Postponed records were to be submitted to the Assassinations Records Review Board, an independent agency established by the JFK Records Act. The Review Board was to be composed of impartial private citizens with national professional reputations in their fields appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The Review Board's responsibilities were to determine whether a record constituted an assassination record and whether an assassination record or particular information in a record qualified for postponement of disclosure. 

Grounds for postponement include: Threats to military or intelligence operations or the foreign relations of the United States. Undisclosed intelligence sources or methods. Potential identification of intelligence agents whose identities require protection. Identification of a living person who provided confidential information who would be at risk of harm. Unwarranted invasion of personal privacy. Compromising confidentiality requiring protection between a government agent and a cooperating individual or a foreign government. Public disclosure of a security or protective procedure currently utilized by the Secret Service or other government agency responsible for protecting government officials. 

The Review Board concluded its duties on September 30, 1998, and transferred its records to NARA. 

In its final report, the Review Board stated that it had reviewed and voted to release more than 27,000 previously redacted assassination records, and worked with various agencies to publicly release more than 33,000 of their previously restricted assassination records. All remaining postponed records have been subject to periodic review by the agency originating a postponed record and NARA. 

When a record is determined to qualify for continued postponement, an unclassified written description of the reason must be provided and published in the Federal Register. 

In anticipation of the October 26, 2017, deadline, NARA in 2014 established a team of archivists and technicians to evaluate materials subject to postponed disclosure and to process those materials for public release, along with an explanation of their activities. 

NARA reports that it has "identified a small number of records, or portions of records" related to grand jury or personal tax return information, and some records subject to a deed of gift that restricts their disclosure, that will not be released in October. 

As of March 2017, NARA states that it has not been informed of any agency appealing the planned release of its documents, but their understanding is "that agencies are still reviewing the documents subject to release." 

Under the JFK Records Act, postponed agency assassination records are scheduled to be released on October 26, 2017, unless the President certifies before then that continued postponement is made necessary by an identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or conduct of foreign relations, and that the harm is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in disclosure. 

There is no publicly available, authoritative source describing the contents of redacted and withheld records, but NARA states their assumption "that much of what will be released will be tangential to the assassination events."

Tim Naftali on JFK's Back channel to Russia

JFK’s Russian Conspiracy

Kennedy had his own secret back channel with Moscow. It may have kept the superpowers from going to war.

John F. Kennedy would have been 100 this Monday.

On a day in early December, one of Moscow’s agents in the United States, working undercover as a journalist for Izvestia, reported a private meeting with the president-elect’s “closest adviser.” The adviser, who met privately with the Russian spy, was frank and hopeful about a significant improvement in relations from the previous administration. He “stressed that was not merely expressing his personal opinion but the position of the future president.” The two men met alone, and there was no American record made of the encounter.

This is not a report about Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, whose activities during the transition are now being investigated. Nor it is about Jared Kushner, who, the Washington Post reported on Friday, approached Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak last December to propose a secret communications channel. The meeting described above took place in 1960, and the “close adviser” was the incoming president’s brother, Robert F. Kennedy. It is not unusual for the Russians to want to establish contacts with an incoming presidential administration, especially when there is tension between the two countries. It is also not unusual for an American administration to use back channels to probe the intentions of adversarial powers. 

But December 1960 was not December 2016. The RFK meeting likely came at the request of the Russians, not the Americans. It was not held in secret—it was noted on RFK’s telephone log. And Robert Kennedy, despite general encouraging words, made no promises, suggested no follow-up, and was in no way working against the outgoing Eisenhower administration. The Russians were smart in focusing attention on the president-elect’s brother. He would eventually be involved in historic back channel activity, but well after the inauguration. And all these years later, such communications have been revealed as a canny and patriotic initiative by the Kennedy administration.

John F. Kennedy was not only less hawkish than his public rhetoric, he was less hawkish than the American people.

This Monday John F. Kennedy would have turned 100, and it has taken nearly this long to develop a full picture of his presidency: The more we learn about it, the more impressive he becomes. Much of the biographical work until recently has been filling in the gaps created by censors—mainly close allies and family members—who did not want the public image of the fallen leader to be tarnished by his addiction to sex and his physical frailties. But what should most dramatically change how we view his presidency is the flood of new information (and some of it not new but underappreciated from Russian records) about how he did his job. JFK had a taping system installed in the White House a decade before Nixon, and these recordings have only been fully opened since late 2012. Unlike the technophobic Nixon, whose taping system would turn on at the literal drop of a hat, Kennedy’s was controlled by a button usually pressed by him alone. The Kennedy tapes, and the increasing release of that era’s national security documents, are revising the picture of a very creative moment in U.S. foreign policy.

JFK’s Russian conspiracy did not begin during his campaign. In the summer of 1960, the Soviet Foreign Ministry and the KGB relied mainly on publicly available information to imagine what Kennedy would be like as president if he won. They had no informants near the young leader’s circle, the “New Frontiersmen.” Soviet diplomats were more dismissive than the KGB of Kennedy, thinking him “unlikely to possess the qualities of an outstanding person.” Both institutions worried he was overly influenced by his father, Joseph, the conservative multimillionaire and former head of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Soviet intelligence initially suspected Kennedy might be more welcomingly inventive in U.S.–Soviet relations. But neither side apparently got any help in testing their theories from the Kennedys or their advisers until November.

After Kennedy’s very close election, Soviet diplomats and the KGB made separate approaches to Kennedy insiders to get a read on the future leader of the free world. The meeting of the undercover spy with RFK on Dec. 1, 1960, seemed to be the KGB’s effort to contrive a summit invitation from the president-elect and deliver it on a silver platter to the Kremlin.

Although the Kennedys were new at the White House business, they were not easily impressed by Soviet attention, and they played these approaches carefully, being encouraging only under the right circumstances. The president-elect refused to promise an early summit, though he would not rule one out. “In principle,” the KGB reported RFK as saying in that December meeting:

Kennedy would like to meet with you [Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev] and hopes that his relations with the Soviet leader will be better than Eisenhower had. However, he will not agree to a summit if he doubts that positive results will ensue. In the first three or four months of his presidency, before he has presented his domestic program to Congress, Kennedy would not be able to participate in a summit.

And the Kennedys mixed spice with the sugar. The KGB reported that RFK also warned Moscow not to test the incoming administration over Berlin, a symbol of the administration’s commitment to defending the West. JFK would wait until he had taken office and then used the formal channels of the State Department to schedule a summit with Khrushchev.

After the fiasco of the Bay of Pigs in April, however, coupled with Kennedy’s deep concern about the stability of the Southeast Asian country of Laos in the face of a Soviet-backed insurgency, the Kennedy brothers decided to explore the Russian love for secret back channels. Starting in late May 1961, Robert would meet at least 35 times—an extraordinary number—over the next 19 months with a Soviet intelligence officer named Georgi Bolshakov (of the military intelligence service, then as now called the GRU) to voice his brother’s hope for a lessening of tensions between the superpowers. Unsurprisingly, the press and public knew nothing about these meetings. But Kennedy also kept most of them a secret from the rest of his administration. National Security Adviser McGeorge Bundy would not know the extent of these meetings until three decades later. Kennedy’s most influential biographer, Arthur M. Schlesinger Jr., and his close aide and speechwriter Theodore Sorensen knew little of these contacts at the time. Robert often met with the Soviet agent in his office at DOJ; the FBI might have caught whiff of these tête-à-têtes, but the CIA was in the dark.

What we now know from these efforts is that John F. Kennedy was not only far less hawkish than his public rhetoric, but he was far less hawkish than the American people. He was certainly anti-communist and mistrusted pro-Kremlin revolutionaries, but he believed, as he would reveal publicly in his American University address in June 1963, that Americans had an irrational fear of Russians and that both peoples shared an aversion to nuclear war. It would take public acclaim of his leadership after the Cuban Missile Crisis in October 1962 for Kennedy to feel he had the political capital to tell the American people what they were not prepared to hear before. But long before then, the historical record now shows, he was willing to let the Soviets know his private views and explore a possible détente to lower the level of nuclear danger, while holding firm to American global security obligations.

Kennedy’s Russian conspiracy was designed not for personal benefit, and at personal risk, to avoid mutual annihilation.

The Kennedys loved keeping secrets, and they were good at it. They kept these meetings secret because JFK was trying to advance negotiating positions as trial balloons that he knew would be shot down if revealed prematurely in Washington. 

On the important matter of the number of on-site inspections of suspicious seismic events in seismically active USSR—an issue that kept the two sides from seriously negotiating a nuclear test ban in the Eisenhower years—Kennedy revealed to Moscow a private position of 10 inspections when the U.S. government’s public position was 20 inspections. “The USA could compromise,” RFK told his Soviet contact, “if this were in response to a Soviet proposal.” At the same time, the president’s brother underscored that an arms-control agreement would only come if the Soviets stopped underestimating U.S. power and causing trouble in divided Berlin and Southeast Asia. The Kennedys also refused to soften their hard line on Fidel Castro or even discuss it with Moscow. “Cuba is a dead issue,” explained RFK.

Some of this was naïve—Khrushchev did not want an arms-control agreement as much as Kennedy did and was suspicious of the president’s gesture—and all of it was politically dangerous at home for JFK. Had these secret discussions ever become public, RFK, let alone his brother, might well have been charged with being pro-Soviet. They weren’t, but in Washington at the time there was no acceptable difference between seeking compromise and being perceived as soft on the Soviets. 

In retrospect, however, it is hard to argue that these risks were not worth taking at the height of the Cold War. Robert’s secret meetings may not have made a major arms-control agreement more likely, but they certainly helped to make an accidental war less likely. At their one and only summit in Vienna in June 1961, Kennedy and Khrushchev agreed to a neutral Laos, a new status for the war-torn country that JFK had proposed earlier via the back channel. A few months later during the Berlin Crisis, when Soviet and American tanks were in a standoff at Checkpoint Charlie, RFK’s back-channeling may have been the reason the Kremlin withdrew its 30 tanks without incident. In the fall of 1962, when the Kennedy brothers suspected RFK’s interlocutor of having become a source of disinformation about Soviet missile activities in Cuba, they switched the back channel from Bolshakov to the Soviet ambassador, Anatoly Dobrynin. This secret contact, as many now know, would be influential in securing a peaceful end to the Cuban Missile Crisis. The Kennedy brothers’ Russian conspiracy was designed not for personal benefit, and at personal risk, to test the limits of Soviet desire in avoiding the mutual annihilation that seemed so plausible at the time.

A secret back channel to prevent accidental nuclear annihilation versus a secret back channel to let a foreign power control US policy, get their preferred people installed in the new administration and complete business deals to enrich the president and...  More...

JFK has long been something of a puzzle. He was a liberal who dragged his feet on civil rights until his third year in office and then embraced the struggle as a moral imperative—consciously forsaking the Democratic Party’s base in the segregationist South. In the mosaic of new information about his presidency, we can see patterns. Kennedy sought liberal outcomes while abhorring instability and uncertainty. But, in the end, he could and would take risks. He assumed his Russian outreach would have to remain secret, not only to satisfy the Soviets that it was not a publicity trick, but to give him time to sway American public opinion for whatever agreement that would follow.

Six decades later the FBI believes there is probable cause to investigate the potential relationship, and denial thereof, between Russia and the winner of the most recent presidential election. It is very human—and sometimes politically useful—to see parallels in history. But any comparison between these two cases requires first asking the simple question: Who benefits? Given the financial entanglements and conflicts of interests surrounding this president, and the activities of the Russian government in trying to bring him into office, such a relationship, if it exists, is likely to be revealed as very different from the one encouraged by the Kennedys years ago. In the 1960s, we know now, a president and his closest adviser took creative and audacious steps to make the world a safer place. Happy 100th birthday, JFK.

Tim Naftali, the co-author with Aleksandr Fursenko of One Hell of a Gamble: Khrushchev, Castro and Kennedy 1958-1964 and Khrushchev’s Cold War, is writing a new study of the Kennedy presidency.

Flyby's Jonathan Mark on JFK

Editor – Jonathan Mark
Initially posted 21 November, 2013
“The great enemy of the truth
is very often not the lie,

deliberate, contrived and dishonest,
but the myth,
persistent, persuasive, and unrealistic.”
– President John F. Kennedy
Editor’s Notes: When I was twelve in 1963 life seemed full of adventure, fantasy, promise, and it was scary, too. The “Duck and Cover” drills in elementary school certainly brought that point home; the nuclear age was like a shadow upon us, and was used to corrupt normal principles about freedom and democracy for ‘national security interest’ with no oversight by those infiltrating power mechanisms to combine dark money with that of a gradual takeover of government, energy, mainstream media, education, health, food, people. But at this pre-teenager phase, I believed everything the TV told me, and was grateful I was not living in the USSR.
The first book I read that had experience an erotic episode in it was by George Orwell, “1984.” That powerful experience, heightened with its yearning for freedom and individuality, I can think of no other book that has stayed with me for so long; where the Newspeak and doublespeak is pervasive in the mainstream media; from Edward Snowden NSA revelations one can see the deception and dangerous control over everyone and especially on Whistleblowers who are trying to expose the corruption and betrayal. But in 1963 I was in another world in Brooklyn, NYC under a desk at PS 179 and valued sugar as my idea of the best economy I could imagine where $1 could create 100 shoestring licorices. I was messed up in my head with rotting teeth and amalgam fillings, lungs full of second-hand tobacco smoke, I was dizzy, but happy and ignorant like most everyone in the small world where normal is dysfunctional, and peace is war.
Yet beyond my foolishness I could see that President John F. Kennedy was doing his best and  handled nightmares of the Cuban missile crisis with diplomacy and courage. What could I do anyway? The news came over the loudspeaker Friday, November 22nd, 1963 at Ditmas Junior High School. President Kennedy was killed and we were dismissed early for the weekend. A fog seemed to roll over our world and there seemed to be only an endless funeral procession on TV. I felt confused and guilty for wanting to be distracted. No way could I imagine the impact of that day that was covered in such deep sorrow and betrayal. Not until I became a teenager and saw connections with other assassinations did I start to question authority. Like a monster on the loose the US-expanded the imperial Vietnam war, slowly I was awakening to a world written about by George Orwell.
“He who learns must suffer
And even in our sleep pain that cannot forget
Falls drop by drop upon the heart,
And in our own despair, against our will,
Comes wisdom to us by the awful grace of God.”
— Agamemnon
This was quoted by Robert F Kennedy in his speech announcing the
assassination of Martin Luther King on 4 April 1968; and the epitaph
his family inscribed on his grave marker in Arlington National Cemetery.
Intuitively I questioned the Gulf of Tonkin incident, the bombing of other nations around Vietnam. Questioning authority became an obvious and healthy thing to do. Finding Woodstock for me was to witness a movement for peace that made it all seem possible. I lasted only one year in college. The National Guard shooting students at Kent State, and the killings in Jackson State were too much for me in some ways. I joined with one hundred thousand peace activists for a Peace Moratorium in Washington, D.C., spring 1970. Yet war continued. I could no longer accept going to any school that was pro-war, plus go into debt for a schooling that had little relevance to what life was about. I left to go into an unknown pathway where intuition became part of a guidance into the unknown.
In 1970, after traveling across North America, a brief stay in prison for shoplifting (a 45-cent item) on an impulse, and returning from the Rocky Mountains in Canada, I came to my parent’s home in Brooklyn and was given a letter telling me I had one week before a physical exam for the military draft. I prepared by going to Prospect Park each day and learned to play a harmonica. On the appointed day I walked toward the crowd gathering outside Fort Hamilton playing my first tune “You’re in the Army now, you’re in the army now, you’ll never get out, you’ll never get out, you’re in the army now.” It was such a scary thought, and I was delighted playing my first song, so, I kept playing even when led inside into a building.. I sat down closing my eyes and feeling the improvisation music coming through. Suddenly the commander requested my stopping playing the harp in an unexpectedly gentle way. So I had to obey; he was too courteous. But I found new inspiration during the IQ exam. I wanted to write poetry but my memory went to a saying from a commune I visited that summer.  “I am spirit. I am vibrating creative energy. I vow to do, obey and be the will of creative energy. I vow to lose myself from my carnal self. So be it.” They made me take the test over with a big sergeant scrutinizing (intimating) me, but in my presence I could only respond to two of the questions that had something to do with nature. But what helped most I think is when I explained why I dropped out of school: ‘to leave a path of limitations and doubt to find love.’ I think that did it. In my underwear in line with other military draft candidates, the doctor seemed to agree with my assessment; I was not fit for training to go to war. So, he sent me to the shrink where I could open up and share what I really felt about life and the universe. From his point of view I was not normal or over-looking what he was writing, I was a paranoid schizophrenic. To me the whole event expanded my being, I was jamming on my harp at the train station, across the platform I could see folks on the other side looking at me. It dawned on me then, I was going to be free of the military, and nature pulled me north.
I would have likely have frozen to death in New England that first winter out on my own. So for four years I lived with people at a commune, an alternative culture living closer to the land, and trying to help our world be less insane. Yet from our childhood conditioning egos erupted and chaos seem to clash with manifesting our ideals. The leadership of the community proved of the quote by Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” After leaving that failed attempt at utopia in 1975, I lived alone in a cabin and began writing my autobiography. I wanted to make sense of this lifetime. After two manuscript drafts with an old fashion typewriter, I realized it was premature, and I was not ready in life to tackle such an overview. So I started writing poetry just to flow with words and relax about my poor grammar. My first book is called Mitakuye Oyasin (A Lakota phrase for) – All My Relations. Some of these poems are posted in a poetry blog.
Sometime in the future I plan to return to my memoirs to help further the work and awareness of Flyby News for life’s survival in the 21st Century. I am producing hundreds of copies of my film compilation, Dark Legacy – JFK and 9-11 to share on what I consider are the four key conspiracies affecting us today. You can write me at noflyby[AT} yahoo{dot)com if you want a hard DVD copy sent to you.
I finished producing the program recorded on 22 November at the Greenfield Community Television studio. It has a running time of two hours and twenty-eight minutes. Greenfield Community Television has posted it online, now also on youtube. This program included film clips, live presentations, music, poetry, and audience participation. It begins with a two-minute public service announcement. The following two paragraphs’ transcript was accompanied by Philippe Guy Simone’s narration and Bob Marley’s music, Redemption Song:
“Every once in a while a Generation has a chance to look back and reflect as to the state of the world. This November 22nd offers such an opportunity; it will be 50 years since the assassination of US President John F. Kennedy. Most Americans don’t believe in the Warren Commission Report. What do you think? Was there a military coup d’etat fifty years ago and a cover-up to this day?
On the eve of the anniversary, a documentary film by John Hankey, “Dark Legacy – George Bush and the Murder of John F. Kennedy” was shown at the Greenfield Garden Cinema.
23 November update: Showing the film by John Hankey, “Dark Legacy: George Bush and the Murder of John F. Kennedy” at The Garden Cinema was very rewarding. FN is also linking to youtube where you can watch this wonderful film. Seeing the documentation of the 1963 US coup d’etat on the big screen, plus our short on The FED, was powerful. Unfortunately the theater was only about 1/3 filled. Lately Flyby News is getting more pages visited from Vietnam and China than from the U.S. The event on the anniversary at Greenfield Community Television was truly special. If anyone needs a DVD for broadcasting at a TV station, please let me know. This following link is to my interview with Monte Belmonte, a real force for good at the river WRSI radio station in Northampton.
FN continues to be updated, especially our health and spiritual blog, reports from Bart Jordan and evidence of advanced ancient civilizations, the moon landing hoax, which is the most difficult one to consider. But when people finally free themselves from deception, it could be the last big conspiracy to fool any of us any longer. Critical thinking, fearlessness, confronting the evidence, not mired in fear is a great challenge. For those following Flyby News, please help us spread the information around. For change to happen we must become aware of the psychological war in distorting truth and harming most all life on Earth. As Bart Jordan describes it in a single word, “Gaiacide” – killing Mother Earth in all its grandeur and biodiversity.
Today, every inhabitant of this planet must contemplate
the day when this planet may no longer be habitable.
Every man, woman, and child lives under a nuclear
sword of Damocles, hanging by the slenderest of
threads, capable of being cut at any moment
by accident or miscalculation or madness.
– John F. Kennedy
A friend wrote on facebook trying to understand the intense evil in the world, I responded by sharing what I think ‘sin’ has to do with separating from our true nature and essence, which was created in love. Many will try to avoid their fears, but with that comes issues of control, arrogance, and ignorance. Some will even try to justify dark actions by projecting themselves into a reality that would appear insane. Most will try to focus or judge others to avoid looking at themselves. Sometimes looking into the darkness appears to be like looking into a bottomless pit. But inside of our being opening to love (or fearlessness) is really being present, and illuminating our fears so we can help transform them with our love. Harmony can be part of our reality. Separating from one another and ourselves has created a hell on earth. Life is enough of a miracle to overcome fear. And being awake, uniting with others, we can do something about the dark forces now in charge of our governments, energy, water, food, medicine, and environment. Truth will set us free one way or another. Thanks for reading and sharing.

Woody Harrelson: Thoughts From Within

“When I despair, I remember that all through history,
the way of truth and love has always won. There have
been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can
seem invincible. But in the end they always fall.
Think of it, always.”
– Mohandas Gandhi
