The National Archives is due to release documents related to the JFK assassination today, according to a 1992 law.

The cache includes some 3,000 files of previously secret information.

Journalist Hugh Aynesworth, who has been covering the JFK assassination since that day on the grassy knoll, told Public Radio International’s “The Takeaway” that he still has questions about the CIA’s involvement in Latin America, including multiple assassination attempts on Fidel Castro, and things that were left out of the Warren Commission Report.

“I expect what comes out will not change anybody’s mind,” Aynesworth told the radio show. “If they don’t release it all, they’re in for trouble because people need to know.”

The Sixth Floor Museum is bringing a panel of experts to help us digest the documents after their release.

The program, “What Has the Government Been Hiding? 54 Years of Secrets and the Release of the JFK Records,” will feature authors Larry Sabato and Philip Shenon. NPR’s Dave Davies will moderate.

The program, at 2 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, costs $15. Buy tickets here.
