Yes those two things go together according to several reports all pointed to recently revealed government documents. I thought we were still figuring out the subdued figure on the grassy knoll. Turns our the JFK assassination has gotten an extraterrestrial twist. Paging Oliver Stone.
While researching materials for his new book, "A Celebration of Freedom: JFK and the New Frontier" (Wasteland Press), Atlanta, Ga., history teacher William Lester used the Freedom of Information Act to get some previously classified documents.
Two of them were written by Kennedy on the same date, Nov. 12, 1963 — 10 days before his assassination. One was to the CIA director, asking for UFO files (See JFK Doc 2); the other was to the NASA administrator, with Kennedy expressing a desire for cooperation with the former Soviet Union on mutual outer space activities (See JFK Doc 3). "One of his concerns was that a lot of these UFOs were being seen over the Soviet Union and he was very concerned that the Soviets might misinterpret these UFOs as U.S. aggression, believing that it was some of our technology," Lester told AOL News.
Most of the story revolves around a group called Majestic 12 (MJ-12) and a burned memo that was saved from being completely destroyed, its apparent connection to Kennedy’s inquiry about UFO’s and the government knowledge of them and his assassination 10 days later.
In the 1990s, Wood obtained a series of the MJ-12 documents, including something known as the "burned" memo — believed to have been written in the early 1960s — that was reportedly saved from being burned, presumably to forever hide important UFO information, including parts that referred to Kennedy.
The memo contains a reference to "Lancer," which was John F. Kennedy’s Secret Service code name.
The first page of the now-infamous burned memo (See JFK Doc 4), reportedly written by the director of Central Intelligence, said:
"As you must know, Lancer has made some inquiries regarding our activities, which we cannot allow. Please submit your views no later than October. Your action to this matter is critical to the continuance of the group."
To authenticate the documents, Wood turned to forensics and linguistics specialists who carefully looked at things like the paper they were printed on, ink age, watermarks, font types and other markings.
"I hired a forensics company to check the age of the ink and to check several other things that you can date, using the same techniques you’d use in a court of law," Wood explained. "And all the critics who wave their arms and say, ‘Well, you can duplicate anything,’ they forget about the fact that these documents actually showed up in the public domain long before our sophisticated techniques got on the market.
"That’s my assessment of its relative importance. The most important idea that people have not grasped at all is that this program started in early 1942. The second most important idea is that the program is not under the control of the president and when the president was about to leak it, they bumped him off."
I guess there a lot of people out there who think the Kennedy assassination theory needed to be updated. And what better way to do that than tie UFO’s and a good government cover up!.
While we’re talking UFO’s take a look at the latest viral video coming our of Siberia.
Incredible footage has emerged of what a group of Russians claim is the remains of a mangled alien. The lifeless ‘body" was supposedly discovered lying in snow in the Irkutsk region of southern Siberia following reports of a UFO crash last month.
The "extra-terrestrial" appears to have suffered horrific injuries — including the loss of one limb.
Shocked villagers had told of seeing a pink and blue glowing object hurtling towards the town before the alien was found. The bizarre reports were taken so seriously, they were investigated by the country’s Emergencies Ministry staff.
The mystery deepened when investigators said no aircraft were reported in the area. And search and rescue teams found no evidence of an aircraft crash.
