在公布所有有关美国总统肯尼迪遇刺的文件的法定期限之前数小时,川普总统下令数百份文件仍不解密,至少目前如此。

川普总统一天前在推特上发文说,人们期待已久的肯尼迪遇刺文件的公布即将实现。川普总统星期四在发给联邦政府机构负责人的一份备忘录中说:“我今天下令最后揭开面纱。”

与此同时,川普总统在备忘录中说,他不得不接受一些联邦部门出于国家安全利益的考虑而不解密其中一些文件。一位白宫官员说,大部分继续保密的要求来自美国联邦调查局和中央情报局。除了几百份文件之外,其余文件在美国东部夏令时晚上8点之后解密。

Trump Delays Release of Hundreds of JFK Assassination Files, Citing National Security

Hours before a legal deadline for the release of all documents relating to President John F. Kennedy's assassination, President Donald Trump ordered Thursday that hundreds of the files would remain secret, at least temporarily.

A day after tweeting that the "long anticipated release of the #JFK files" was near, Trump issued a memo to federal agency heads saying, "I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted."

At the same time, he wrote that he "had no choice today [but] to accept redactions" recommended by some departments in the interest of national security.

A White House official said most of the recommendations had come from two agencies, the FBI and the CIA.

The files were released Thursday, shortly after 8 p.m. EDT (0000 UTC Friday).
