US President Donald Trump approved the release of a 2,891-document trove, but decided that hundreds of additional documents will remain secret. According to White House officials cited by news agencies, Trump made this decision after the FBI and the CIA urged him to do so.

"I am ordering today that the veil finally be lifted," Trump said in a White House memo on Thursday. "At the same time, executive departments and agencies have proposed to me that certain information should continue to be redacted because of national security, law enforcement, and foreign affairs concerns."
"I have no choice — today — but to accept those redactions rather than allow potentially irreversible harm to our nation’s security," Trump added.
The agencies have had literally 25 years to prepare for the scheduled release today. The delay is inexcusable. @realDonaldTrump

I would think that there must be some startling information in there if they held it for "national security" concerns.

They are either lying, or the documents somehow prove that the US killed its own man.
Or should I say,
Details the reason(s) why they killed their own.
