WASHINGTON — There were the Pentagon’s top-secret reviews of Lee Harvey Oswald — before and after the assassination. The files about the CIA operative who surveilled the alleged assassin and whose knowledge was purposely hidden from congressional investigators. The sworn testimony of dozens of intelligence officials and organized crime figures dating back nearly four decades. And the government personnel files of multiple figures officially designated as relevant to the investigation.
The documents are just some of the collections that the law stipulates are relevant but government archivists acknowledge have not been released to the public a half a century after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.
