Conspiracy Studies: The Last JFK Files


With Steven Saint Thomas, Journalist

Almost 30 years ago, Congress passed the JFK Records Act of 1992, ordering the complete release of previously classified documents regarding President Kennedy's assassination in 25 years (2017). Learn how reporters use investigative journalism techniques to answer questions in a search for the truth about this controversial tragedy.

Despite decades of time to prepare, recent administrations have cited “national security” concerns as a loophole to postpone disclosure. While we don’t know yet all the documents being withheld, journalistic inquiries have determined that much of the trove deemed potentially harmful to “military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations,” has to do with CIA involvement with alleged assassin Lee Oswald prior to the shooting.

Using investigative journalism methods, we’ll sort out what we know, and what we have yet to learn, about possible government complicity in this mother-of-all-conspiracy theories.
