A federal judge who sat on the review board that oversaw the documents detailing the assassination of President John F. Kennedy told the Washington Examiner that conspiracy theorists will be disappointed by Thursday's release.

Minnesota Judge John Tunheim told the Examiner the final 37,000 pages getting released Thursday – only 3,000 of which have never been seen — mostly deal with intelligence gathering methods from the time.

The other 34,000 pages getting released Thursday had been made public but with redactions in order to protect the operatives.

"Sources and methods of intelligence gathering, details of intelligence sharing relationships with foreign governments, foreign informants, a lot of that protected information had to do with the American government's intelligence and law enforcement relationships with foreign countries — that was a particularly sensitive area, and we agreed to more redactions on that basis," Tunheim told the Examiner.

Tunheim, once part of the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB), said all the compelling documents surrounding JFK's assassination have long ago been released.

"Anything that we saw that was information itself about the assassination or about any of the key players, such as Lee Harvey Oswald, was released, regardless of whether an agency wanted us to protect it or not," Tunheim told the Examiner.
