To combat the federal government’s secrecy, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is offering thousands of dollars to anyone who will turn over the missing documents deemed “too dangerous” for the American people to see. This sudden change in policy was announced on Thursday, as the government proved that it will not follow the rules it created for itself with the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act in 1992.
Caving to lobbying pressure by intelligence agencies, Trump announced he would not order the release of the full tranche of records, instead following last-minute recommendations of his national security agencies that some of those records be redacted, White House officials said. During a call with reporters, White House officials explained that while some 2,800 JFK records will be released today, the publications of the remaining records has been postponed for 180 days to give agencies more time to figure out what they want redacted, reports ZeroHedge.
Just like that, the long-awaited and expected day came and went, and certain files related to the assassination of Kennedy were deemed too sensitive to release, even though it has been almost 54 years since he was killed in Dallas, Texas. Although federal law demanded all files pertaining to his assassination be released to the American people on Oct. 26, few will ever know what the government wants to keep secret.
However, WikiLeaks is firing back and is offering a reward of $100,000 to anyone who can produce the missing documents, with certain stipulations attached. WikiLeaks does not want information that is irrelevant, but documents that show the government was criminal, inefficient or administratively negligent in complying with its own 25-year-old federal law.
