Hundreds of documents related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy were released Monday by the National Archives.
The new information has historians and conspiracy theorists alike scrambling to comb through the over 4,000 pages of never-before-seen transcripts to determine what information has been revealed.
The 441 documents from the CIA and FBI include transcripts of Soviet defector and former KGB agent, Yuri Nosenko. He claimed to be in charge of the KGB file on Lee Harvey Oswald, Kennedy’s killer, during the time that Oswald was in the Soviet Union.
“They will not shed any light on the mechanics, the actual physical mechanics of the assassination,” said Farris Rookstool, leading expert of JFK’s assassination who reviewed classified documents during his time at the FBI, according to NBC.
The real intrigue in the recently released documents come from speculation the Oswald could have been a Russian plant.

“What might come to light is could certain intelligence agencies, was Oswald on the radar, could he have been cooperating with a foreign entity?” Rookstool questioned.
With such a large mass of documents, it will likely take time before any clear light is shed on Oswald’s association with foreign governments. And there are still more documents to be released.
While about 5 million government documents related to the assassination are already public, remaining documents are set to be released by the end of this October.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza released a statement along with the document release, saying, “While The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza has no specific insight into these particular documents, it acknowledges that this information may have potential value to researchers and historians, and could lead to a broader understanding of the assassination and time period.”
Only time will tell.
