Unless President Trump makes the decision not to release over 3000 documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, we may be set to learn a lot more about what really happened that day.
Kennedy was shot as he rode in his motorcade just after noon on November 22, 1963 as the presidential vehicle slowly drove through Dealey Plaza in downtown Dallas, Texas. He would die in the arms of his wife, Jacqueline.
JFK had beat out incumbent Richard M. Nixon to become the 35th president of the United States. Even back then there were rumors of voter fraud, and according to Brittanica.com, over 70 million votes had been cast to which Kennedy won by a margin of less than 120,000.
Within an hour after the shots rang out that left our president mortally wounded and the governor of Texas, John Connaly, in the hospital with a chest wound, an arrest was made. A young man by the name of Lee Harvey Oswald would be named the shooter, and a ten-month investigation by the Warren Commission from November 1963 to September 1964 would conclude that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in shooting Kennedy.
From the moment JFK was assassinated, speculations and rumors filled the airwaves as people all across the country were not satisfied with the “evidence” being provided by authorities. Many believed he had been killed because of a conspiracy brought on by our own CIA, but that has never been proven. That just might change if the documents from that time become declassified.
Not long ago, other documents from the Kennedy era were released to the public. Although they were not sensationalized by the media, those who did happen upon them were shocked at their content. An operation, called “Operation Northwoods”, was put to bed by JFK, but had it been allowed to commence, would have ended with untold amounts of innocent Americans being murdered by the hands of their own government.
Operation Northwoods was originated within the Department of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1962. According to documents, those within those departments were set to go to war with Cuba, but needed an excuse to sell another war to the American people. They knew it would be a hard sell, so they came up with the idea to create terror attacks on American soil that would end up killing many innocent Americans. They would blame those attacks on Cuba. Fortunately Kennedy put the kibosh on the operation and it was never fulfilled.
Although some documents from Kennedy’s assassination have already been released over time, the new batch set to be released the end of this month could give us a much broader insight to what really happened that fateful day, a day that rocked this country for years to come. October 26, 2017 is D-day for the release, although President Trump could deem them a threat to national security and ban them from the eyes of the public.
The biggest question surrounding the assassination of JFK has always been, “Was the CIA involved”. We can only hope that these documents will be declassified and that we will finally know for sure, one way or another. Kennedy was against “secret societies”, such as the Illuminati, Skull and Bones, and the Freemasons. He made this publicly known in a speech he made to the American Newspaper Publishers Association on 27th April 1961. He also threatened to audit the federal reserve, the central banking system of the U.S. that is not actually linked to the federal government at all. And, as I mentioned before, he stopped an act that would have resulted in the deaths of innocent Americans. Could any or all of these decisions have brought on his assassination?
