(NewsGlobal.com)- During his podcast last week, Joe Rogan suggested that the CIA is withholding key information about JFK’s assassination that might make the agency look bad.
On December 15, the National Archives released over 13,000 files related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. But not everything was included.
That same day, President Biden released an executive order withholding “a limited number of records” that unnamed agencies identified as “containing information for continued postponement of public disclosure.”
Biden said the continued postponement was warranted “to protect against an identifiable harm to the military defense, intelligence operations, law enforcement, or the conduct of foreign relations that is of such gravity that it outweighs the public interest in disclosure.”
During a broadcast of “The Joe Rogan Experience” last week, Rogan’s guest Brian Redban brought up the National Archives release, asking Rogan if anything had come of it.
Rogan said the documents revealed that Lee Harvey Oswald was a Russian asset who was lured by his wife Marina, whom Rogan described as a honey pot.
Rogan then played a long clip showing Fox News host Tucker Carlson saying an “anonymous but credible source” told his team that the CIA was involved in the Kennedy assassination.
After playing the clip, Rogan’s producer Jamie Vernon pointed out that not all of the documents have been released yet because the CIA withheld them.
Rogan said the only explanation for the CIA withholding documents is to keep the public from seeing the ones that would make the agency look bad.
Redban interjected that releasing the CIA documents might cause the country to riot.
The JFK Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992 mandated that all government documents associated with the assassination be released by October 26, 2017.
When the deadline arrived, then-President Donald Trump ordered the release of many of the records but acceded to proposals from agencies for the continued redaction of some while continuing to shield others out of “national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns.”
Since entering office, Biden has continued withholding the release of some of the records, citing national security concerns.
