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.
Maybe that's because 10 days prior, the president was pestering the CIA to give him access to NASA's UFO files.
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 too much scrutiny, 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.
Here's the first of these declassified letters, this one from JFK to the CIA:
The subject of the memorandum was: Classification review of all
In a second letter, JFK reaches out to NASA directly.
While I can't find these documents on a .gov web site, they don't come off as glaring frauds. They are quite similar to other files you can find on the FBI and NSA web site. In fact, they join a mound of recently declassified documents that might help prove that UFOs are real and are taken real seriously by the government and NASA.
