Was John F. Kennedy assassinated because he was on the verge of telling the public the truth about UFOs? According to “Wikileaks Stratfor UFO files” its very much possible.
Dated 12 November, 1963, just ten days before he would be gunned down in the streets of Dallas, Texas, Kennedy informed James Jesus Angleton (Chief of the CIA’s Counterintelligence Staff) that we was setting things in motion to actually share sensitive CIA UFO intelligence data with the Russians through the director of NASA.
This request was made on the same day he requested James E. Webb to begin Kennedy’s peace overture to the Russians via joint space exploration. Webb, being a board member of the intelligence community most likely interpreted Kennedy’s program to mean the sharing of classified UFO data under which the current directive forbid.
In Kennedy’s top secret memorandum he outlined for Angleton specific items he wished to have disclosed to Webb, such as “[to] have the high threat cases reviewed with the purpose of identification of bona fide as opposed to the classified CIA and USAF sources.”And, “that we make a clear distinction between the known 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.”Finally, Kennedy wanted Angleton to “arrange a program of data sharing with NASA mission directors in their defensive responsibilities.” This was unprecedented and totally unacceptable to Angleton and the CIA!
Here Kennedy was requesting the Central Intelligence Agency, the agency he swore he would “break into a thousand pieces” to just hand over the most guarded secret-ever!
This memo was passed on to William Colby who indicated to someone in Angleton’s staff in a hand written note that says, “Response from Colby, Angleton has MJ directive” and is dated November 20, 1963, just two days before Kennedy dies. It seems that Kennedy’s request bounced around from Angleton’s desk possibly seeking consensus on the request or passing the buck back to Angleton.
In either case, it was a hot potato for which Angleton had to deal with. It is also significant that Kennedy’s NSAM No. 271 was the last coming from Kennedy’s desk just before he left Washington for Dallas. What the real significance is was buried somewhere within the CIA and Angleton spent many a day trying to figure out who ordered Kennedy’s execution.
Was Angleton set up, or did he unintentionally supply the needed ingredient for the murder of the century? In either case, the secret remained safe.One of the few former CIA officers to speak publicly on the Kennedy assassination and the UFO secret is Victor Marchetti, who at one time was Assistant to the Deputy for Plans and Operations under DCI William Colby.
In a rare interview with Second Look magazine in 1979, Marchetti, author of the sensational book Cult of Intelligence which was vetted and censored by the CIA prior to publication (the only book to include the redacted portions within the text), made some interesting observations regarding the CIA’s UFO intelligence gathering program and why the subject is not open for discussion.
In a introduction piece for his web site Robert Collins, a retired air force intelligence officer produced an insightful forward for Marchetti in which Marchetti said: “My theory is that we have, indeed, been contacted-perhaps even visited-by extraterrestrial beings, and that the U.S. Government, in collusion with other national powers of the Earth, is determined to keep this information from the general public.” Marchetti alluded to “rumors” at the highest levels within the CIA that the NSA has information as well and must be kept away from public viewing.
We know now that the NSA does have sensitive COMINT files ,that, for reasons of national security cannot disclose. One of these NSA files that Marchetti speaks of might be the NSA intercept of Kennedy’s phone conversation with Khrushchev dated 12 November, 1963, in which Kennedy spoke of a “situation that affects both our countries and the world,” and “a problem that we share in common.”
It is believed that the UFO problem became a national security item when President Truman authorized the covert establishment of the National Security Agency whose primary responsibility bordered on “special activities” perhaps as outlined in an alleged Intelligence Estimate prepared by national security officials on 30 September, 1947, in which one of the concerns stated that “what we are up against is controlled by intelligent operators” and that “these objects are real and not illusionary.”
It is not surprising that in 1968, a NSA employee drafted a significant analysis of the intelligence community’s ambivalence toward the UFO camouflage and warned of dire consequences unless the defense establishment wakes up and recognizes the danger these phenomena pose in the nuclear age.
