The Biden administration released 1,491 previously classified documents Wednesday about the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

The document release comes after a long string of delays in releasing documents about JFK that were hidden from the public.
There are currently over 10,000 partially or fully redacted documents about the assassination, according to CNN.
In 1992, Congress passed the John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act, which required the government to keep a collection of government documents related to Kennedy's assassination.
In 2018, then-President Donald Trump ordered that the full release of the documents be delayed until October 2021 due to national security concerns. He also authorized about 19,000 documents for release, USA Today reported.
When that time came, President Joe Biden ordered another delay. Documents national security agencies did not ask to be withheld were required to be released Dec. 15, 2021.
He also set Dec. 15, 2022, as the deadline for the remaining documents to be reviewed. National security agencies that wanted not to release certain documents to the public have to provide an unclassified reason.
