November 22, 2013 - The JFK assassination conspiracies have been given life recently, thanks to some strange new media coverage, including a surprising article on CNN that concludes the CIA may have had a hand in it. UFO believers have been saying this for years.
On November 22nd, 1963, President John F Kennedy was fatally shot in the head by... [fill in the blank].
10 days prior, the president was pestering the CIA to give him access to NASA's UFO files.
They didn't teach you that part in school, did they? JFK wasn't the only president to catch the UFO bug, but he may have been the only president to pay for it with his life.
Years ago, reporter Jim Marrs unearthed a hoard of classified documents which - altogether - tell the story of a top secret group of scientists, businessmen and CIA operatives, deemed the Majestic or Majority 12, appointed by President Truman to investigate the UFO phenomenon and misinform the American public about it. Some documents - including an infamously burned memo - even detail plans to get rid of "Lancer" (JFK's nickname) due to his prying.
Although these documents have escaped debunking, it was years before another investigator hot on the trail (author William Lester) would get the CIA to release two of them under the Freedom of Information Act.
Above is the first of these declassified letters, this one from JFK to the CIA.
And here's a summary of it, courtesy of PresidentialUFO.com:
The subject of the memorandum was: Classification review of all
UFO intelligence files affecting National Security.
The body of the memorandum reads:
"As I had discussed with you previously, I have
initiated (blacked out) and have instructed James
Webb to develop a program with the Soviet Union in
joint space and lunar exploration. It would be very
helpful if you would have the high threat cases
reviewed with the purpose of identification of bona
fide as opposed to classified CIA and USAF sources.
It is important that we make a clear distinction
between the knowns and unknowns in the event the
Soviets try to mistake our extended cooperation as a
cover for intelligence gathering of their defence and
When this data has been sorted out, I would like you
to arrange a program of data sharing with NASA
where Unknowns are a factor. This will help NASA
mission directors in their defensive responsibilities.
I would like an interim report on the data review no
later than February 1, 1964.
/S/ John F. Kennedy"
(Handwritten note next to signature space: "Response from Colby, (sic) Angelton has MJ directive 11/20/63")
In a second letter, JFK reaches out to NASA directly.
While I can't find these documents on a .gov web site, it does appear they are legit. They are quite similar to other files you can find on the FBI and NSA web site. In fact, they join a TON of recently declassified documents that prove UFOs are real and are taken real seriously by the government and NASA behind closed doors.
Where do we go from here? We can start by pulling our gullible American heads out of the sand and acknowledge that UFOs are real and that JFK probably wanted us to know this fact.
