Jfk Review Board

A board that has been searching out confidential documents on the John Kennedy assassination is condemning much of the secrecy surrounding the material. The board says the government unnecessarily kept so much confidential that it fostered distrust of democratic institutions. Members of the board, which is going out of business this week, hope such groups will be set up in similar circumstances in the future. NPR's Barbara Bradley reports.
