RFK explains why he thinks the CIA killed his uncle JFK
The assassination of John F. Kennedy has taken a new twist after President Joe Biden authorized thousands of classified documents linked to the shooting to be released – revealing a previously redacted name in the investigation.
In December 2022, the Biden administration released some 14,000 documents adhering to the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992.
This mandated the public release of all documents pertaining to the former president’s assassination by 2017.
Despite that huge release, around three percent of the files were still classified and were therefore returned to the National Archives for further evaluation.
But that review was completed on May 1 and President Biden had certified the release of any remaining documents authorized to be declassified on June 30.

This breakthrough has seen experts able to pull new information from the newly-released files – including the name of a CIA agent who intercepted the assassin’s mail in the months before he fatally shot JFK.
Ruben Efron was previously redacted in a memo he wrote about a letter between Lee Harvey Oswald and his mother.
This memo was reportedly sent to Betty Egerter at the CIA, whose boss is understood to have informed the FBI that the agency had no information on Oswald on the day of the assassination on November 22, 1963.
It’s the latest bizarre twist in the shooting from nearly 60 years ago, as the impact of identifying Efron now remains unclear.

The former CIA agent was born in Lithuania in 1911 before moving to the US in 1939 and serving in the Air force during World War II just months later. He died in 1993.
The US Government is still withholding another 4,684 documents, according to a report from the New York Times.
President Biden has since explained this is to safeguard against potential harm to military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or foreign relations.
But some had been left furious by the move from the Biden administration not to release these additional documents.
The Mary Ferrell Foundation, a non-profit historical organization, pushed for an injunction against President Biden’s order.
It had said: “On October 19, 2022, the Mary Ferrell Foundation, a non-profit archive with the internet’s largest collection of searchable JFK records, filed a lawsuit against President Biden and the National Archives for failing to implement the 1992 JFK Records Act.
“These failures have resulted in confusion, gaps in the records, over-classification, and outright denial of thousands of assassination-related files, five years after the law’s deadline for full disclosure.”
However last Friday, those efforts were unsuccessful after a judge in California denied the injunction request.
JFK’s nephew Robert Kennedy Jr has also emphasized in a recent tweet the issue is more about transparency as opposed to conspiracy, questioning why information about an assassination is being held back.
President Biden has said in a statement that he “fully” supports the 1992 act.
But he added: “Executive departments and agencies have worked meticulously over thousands of hours of review to ensure that the American people have access to every single word that is appropriate for release under the standards of the act.”
