59 years after the death of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, US National Archives going to present even more materials relating to the events of November 22, 1963. Eight thousand documents will be put on public display, among them – the most long-awaited materials – a multi-volume CIA dossier on Kennedy assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.

The current publication of archival documents should be one of the largest since 2017, writes Politico.

The decision to remove the classification was due to the increased number of rumors of a conspiracy. And how can one not believe in him, if the materials of the Kennedy assassination case are still classified, and the agents of the CIA, FBI and other agencies continue to remain silent. Fueled interest in the conspiracy theory, including Oliver Stone’s documentary “JFK”, which was full of various versions.

However, the published information is likely to disappoint conspiracy theorists – there will be no sensationalism in the materials, and, first of all, data that would indicate that Oswald was not a shooter, or that the Kennedy assassination was preceded by a conspiracy.

Nevertheless, the new information will be of interest to historians and researchers of the life and death of John F. Kennedy. For example, documents relating to Oswald’s mysterious trip to Mexico City in September 1963 will be presented. Being a Marxist, the future Kennedy assassin wanted to flee to Cuba and in Mexico he communicated with Soviet and Cuban intelligence officers. However, the CIA station in Mexico City transmitted information about Oswald’s trip to Washington too late, so the agents could not prevent the death of the US president.

Access will be made to a large volume of documents from the 201 case – the dossier of Lee Harvey Oswald. The 50,000-page dossier contains virtually everything the CIA learned about Oswald before and after the Kennedy assassination. According to the documentation, the agents took the American on a pencil back in December 1960 after his unsuccessful attempt to move to the Soviet Union in 1959. The materials once again confirm that Oswald prepared and committed the murder alone.

Also found the answer to why the CIA and the FBI are so reluctant to declassify materials about John F. Kennedy. The fact is that in many cases representatives of the special services insisted on maintaining secrecy because these materials contain the names and personal data of still living informants who were active in the 60s and 70s. If they are identified, they may be attacked and abused.
