A National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) official has told WhoWhatWhy that approximately 2,800 JFK assassination records remain withheld in full following Thursday’s disappointing release. Here is an up-to-the-minute count of the documents that NARA has not yet made public:

Withheld in Full — there remain approximately 2,745 documents withheld in full; of these 547 were withheld in full for tax or grand jury information that is not currently subject to release.

Withheld in Part — after the July 24 and October 26 releases, there remain approximately 28,609 documents withheld in part; of these about 1,295 contain tax or grand jury information not currently subject to release.

So the total number of documents not released in full in the Collection [is] approximately 31,354; subtracting out the Tax and Grand Jury, there are approximately 29,512.

This confirms WhoWhatWhy’s early reporting that the total expected document release was approximately 30,000 — of which about 10% was released last Thursday — and that only a small fraction of the withheld-in-full documents were released.

Stay tuned for the latest info.

The implications of the tax returns are discussed in the book HARVEY AND LEE by John Armstrong.

Armstrong shows why Oswald showed up in so many places from his childhood, often at the same time. There were two Oswalds. To get the tax returns would show that. So would the tax returns of the two mothers, two Marguerites. Also, showing how much money Oswald earned would reveal the impossibility of his various travels without being financed by some mysterious source. Great book.
