Incomplete JFK file dump doesn't provide the drama Trump promised

CNN)No one will remember in years to come where they were when they heard about the JFK assassination classified document dump of 2017.
In the end, what was supposed to be the final release of government secrets about the 1963 killing of President John F. Kennedy wasn't quite the blockbuster splash that President Donald Trump had been promising.

In fact, a day of intrigue and behind-the-scenes maneuvering by US intelligence agencies is likely only to feed the notorious conspiracy theories that the release of the historical trove was designed to quell once and for all.
It's 54 years since Kennedy died and a quarter century since Congress decreed Thursday as the day when all classified records related to the assassination should be thrown open to the public.

The newly released U.S. government files on the JFK assassination include some fascinating information. Here are three of the released documents that shed some light – and raise more questions – about what happened before and after President Kennedy was killed.
The Soviets called Lee Harvey Oswald a "maniac"
An FBI document from 1966 sheds some light on how American intelligence perceived the Soviet reaction to Kennedy's assassination. Citing several sources, the document lays out the "great shock" of the Soviet people and leadership, and their fears that JFK's death could lead to war with the U.S.

The Soviets seem to have been convinced that Oswald was no lone gunman, and was likely part of a "coup" launched by the American "ultraright." They also professed to have a low opinion of Oswald, who defected to the Soviet Union in 1959. Oswald, a former Marine who had worked at sensitive U.S. military installations in Japan, was apparently seen by the Soviets as a "neurotic maniac who
