UVA's Larry Sabato says an unfortunate side effect of the release, which frames the removal of minor redactions as "new" documents, is that it feeds continuing conspiracy theories based on the idea that the government is concealing the truth about the assassination.
The commission, he believes, was the victim of a “massive cover-up” by government officials who wanted to hide the fact that, had they simply acted on the evidence in front of them in November 1963, the assassination might have been prevented.
