Sign the petition to Free the JFK Files

December 17, 2012

Here is an update from researcher Bill Kelly on the petition drive to free all the remaining classified JFK assassination records immediately. If you have not signed on yet, please do so at


Many thanks to all those who have signed this petition. Just because the NARA and CIA have told us no, they will not include the JFK assassination records in the 2013 National Declassification review as previously announced, they expect us to go home and come back in 2017. Well instead we are ramping up our efforts, continuing the petition drive, taking up a collection to put the petition in a full page ad in Washington and trying to convince Congress to hold JFK Act oversight hearings. If you would like to contribute to this campaign –

I am continuing my blog and have posted an open letter I wrote to Judge John Tunheim chastising him for his mistaken remarks to a reporter concerning the current status of the JFK Assassination records. I don’t mean to be disrespectful but he should know better than anyone.

Jeff Morely and Rex Bradford of Mary Ferrell Archives have started a new and important web site – “dedicated to elevating media coverage of the JFK assassination story, educating the young, and demanding release of still-secret government records related to JFK’s murder. We aim to be the premier site for informed and civil discussion of the JFK tragedy. If you share these goals, consider supporting us. We are raising money on Indiegogo,com, the crowd-funding Web site. Check out Jeff Morley’s introductory video which lays out our plans. We need your help. All donations are tax-deductible.”

Please support them and stay posted on all our activities by signing on our Facebook focus group .

We had previously only achieved 200 signatures on any petition, and it is because of our Facebook and social media friends that we now have ten times that many supporters, and we hope to continue to grow in numbers until we are recognized and achieve our modest goals.

All the best – Bill Kelly

    The American people do not believe the lies we have been told for about fifty years about the death of our president. The continuing secrecy and cover-up only serves to drive a wall of distrust between we Americans and our government. If we really are a fre country where the will of the people is paramount, then prove it by releasing the files and finally, at long last, making an honest accounting.

    Do it now, before it becomes fifty actual years. Honor the hearts and minds of our people. My dad served in WW2 in Europe and his brother Harry died at the Battle of Guadalnacal. They fought to preserve freedom. Did uncle Harry die in vain?

    My great-grandfather Douglas lost his legs in the Civil War, fighting to preserve the union. Tell me truthfully, was his sacrifice in vain? Please tell me it wasn’t. As an American, I need to know that this is still a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

    Thank you and God bless you. There is little point in defending freedom abroad if it withheld at home, is there?
