'Who killed President Kennedy?' is a conspiracy question that has plagued America and the world for over five decades. Did Lee Harvey Oswald act alone? Was it the man with the black umbrella? or the KGB?
None of these answers ring true with UFO Expert Scott C. Waring, who claims that John F. Kennedy was murdered by CIA.
An uncovered letter written by John F. Kennedy and sent to the head of the CIA only 10 days before his assassination reveals that the president demanded to be shown highly confidential documents about UFOs. Waring suggests that this document supports the theory that the CIA assassinated the president in order to stop him interfering with 'top secret' information.
The letter reads:
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 defense and space programs.
I would like you to arrange a program of data sharing with NASA where unknowns are a factor.
These words seem far from threatening, in fact, they point to the fact that JFK wanted to create a closer relationship with Russia in an effort to communicate about possible UFO activity and eliminate the possibility that the Soviets might mistake UFOs over Russia for U.S. spy planes.
Another factor worth considering is that the JFK administration was open about condemning secret societies and the lack of truthful reporting in the media.
Could this, coupled with the President's bid for transparency from the CIA regarding 'top secret UFO' information, be the reason someone pulled the trigger that day?
Or maybe the CIA had nothing to do with the whole business... because they were too busy faking the first moon landing.
Other 'Who Killed Kennedy?' Conspiracies
The list of 'Who killed Kennedy?' conspiracies is countless and the gunning down of that young American leader in November of 1963 continues to rouse debate today.
Here are four of the theories that trigger the most argument:
1. Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone
Lee Harvey Oswald, the lone gunman? Despite forensic, ballistic, and eyewitness evidence supporting the lone gunman theory, public opinion polls taken over the years have shown that most Americans believe that Oswald did not act alone, but conspired with others to kill the president. But who were his conspirators?
2. The Man with the Black Umbrella
A bystander popularly known as the 'Umbrella Man' became the object of much speculation as he was the only person who can be seen holding an umbrella on that bright and sunny day. As JFK's motorcade drove by, the 'Umbrella Man' is standing right where the shots were fired.
Investigator Josiah Thompson said:
"The only person under any umbrella in all of Dallas [is] standing right where the shots come into the limousine. Can anyone come up with a non-sinister explanation for this?"
3. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson
A Gallup poll conducted in 2003 revealed that 20% of Americans believed Lyndon B. Johnson was involved in the death of JFK. Theories include accusations that not only did the Vice President have an overwhelming desire to be the most powerful man in America but that he needed to cover up scandals, including involvement with the FBI.
4. The Mafia
Why would the mafia want JFK dead? Because his brother, Robert, was turning up the heat on organized crime. Robert was the US attorney general at the time and his "anti-mafia crusade" had lead to a sharp increase in the number of prosecutions of senior mafia figures.
