The US will “unfortunately” continue to delay the public release of records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and officials say the COVID-19 pandemic is to blame.
The move was announced in a memo signed by President Joe Biden and released by the White House Friday.
“Temporary continued postponement is necessary to protect against identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations that is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in immediate disclosure,” Biden wrote.
In 1992, Congress ruled that “all Government records concerning the assassination of President John F. Kennedy . . . should be eventually disclosed to enable the public to become fully informed about the history surrounding the assassination,” the missive said.
The act allowed the government to postpone the release to “protect against an identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations,” according to the memo.
This year, the National Archives and Records Administration ruled that “unfortunately, the pandemic has had a significant impact on the agencies,” and NARA needed additional time to research the material and “maximize the amount of information released,” the memo said.
The most sensitive information will now be released in December 2022 and material that has already been deemed “appropriate for release to the public,” will be dumped on Dec. 15 of this year.

I expect this to be even less of a deal than all that UFO talk a few months ago whenever it comes out.
“Oooh.... The silverfish have eaten it!”
They have to protect the names of dead people and the sources and uses of the 1960s intelligence services.
This is a tough job, but somebody has to do it....
HUH? JFK died from convid-19? WTAH?
George Herbert Walker Bush was on the Grassy Knoll.
“unfortunately, the pandemic has had a significant impact on the agencies,”
COVID, is there anything it can’t do???
[[“Temporary continued postponement is necessary to protect against identifiable harm to... the conduct of foreign relations]]
Are they saying it was foreign influence that was involved?
The liar supposedly could not remember where he was when JFK was murdered.
[[COVID, is there anything it can’t do???]]
Yes, it can’t kill over .3% overall of the people it infects.
November 22nd was payback for the Bay of Pigs and to prevent the audit of the (Not-)Federal Reserve.
I don’t know if the papers will come right and say it, but in my opinion the CIA decided to take out a troublesome president (JFK) and put in place a more compliant president (LBJ).
If the papers are released, and if people see that the CIA (Deep State) operates like that, then people might start asking uncomfortable questions about the Deep State working against Trump and how Slow Joe managed to get “81 million” votes.
I’m not surprised that Biden’s team would rather delay any such awkward re-assessments.
I wouldn’t be surprised if the CIA, FBI, Johnson, the Mob, Castro, and others conspired to kill JFK. He was upsetting the apple cart.
Can’t everyone understand??? The records related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy are severely infected with the CORONA COVID CHINA VIRUS and this could actually kill JFK all over again!!!!!!!
No they’re staying due to Covid stress on the endless bureaucracy it has to choose between release of JFK records or conducting the business of governing including foreign policy.
They must just want to needle conspiracy theorists because I find their pretext for delay to be pathetic.
Could it be the new information in the report implicates Biden’s Commie friends in the assassination?
Blame everything on the scamdemic, it’ll solve all the problems.
