    Nearly 48 years after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, fresh audio evidence from that fateful day has surfaced. The evidence comes in the form of the original reel-to-reel Air Force One radio recording, containing conversations between officials on the plane, the White House situation room, and others. The original tape was long thought to be lost or destroyed. The tape contains never-before-heard conversations between the presidential aircraft and the White House and immediately after the assassination of President Kennedy on Nov. 22, 1963. It was held privately for years by President Kennedy’s military aide at the time, Chester...

    Jack Ruby made comments on the morning of President John F Kennedy's assassination to an FBI informant that suggested he knew what was about to take place, according to new records released Friday. Ruby, who was eventually charged with killing Lee Harvey Oswald, asked an FBI informant if he would like to 'watch the fireworks' with him as Kennedy's motorcade drove through downtown Dallas just hours before the assassination took place.

    Chris Matthews: hypocrite. On his MSNBC show this evening, Matthews ripped Roy Moore, saying that Moore’s reported banning from a mall was an “amazing atrocious situation. A grown man with a law degree, an assistant DA, even, having to be physically banned from a public space because of his horrible behavior, his trolling behavior.” Condemning Moore supporters, Matthews said, “it’s almost like facts don’t matter. You say, so’s your old man to the other side and stick to your side. Is there a tipping point? Something that even the alt-right, or something that the hard right won’t accept?” This is...

    Newly declassified documents confirm Moscow always knew to play the American left like a fiddle. President Trump recently authorized a mass declassification of documents relating to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963. Among the material subsequently released, one document that instantly grabbed headlines was a December 1966 FBI memo reporting the reaction of Soviet and Communist Party USA officials to the Kennedy shooting. The document was headlined in (among other publications) the New York Post, which, in turn, was flagged at the top of the Drudge Report, which attracted a lot of readers. Old JFK conspiracy...

  • JFK files, some never seen before, released by National Archives

    CBS News ^ | November 3, 2017
    The National Archives and Records Administration on Friday afternoon released hundreds more documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy. This latest batch of 676 records could yield more interesting results than last week's release, as they are the ones intelligence agencies requested more time to review, citing national security concerns. President Trump urged the release of all remaining JFK documents last week. The majority of records from Friday's batch — 553 of them — are from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Those records were previously denied in their entirety, according to NARA.

    Geoffrey ShawÂ’s account is a page-turning, sorrowful account of how the United States betrayed a man of remarkable character and political genius. On 2 November, groups of Vietnamese men, women, and children will gather for memorial services across the world to honor the death of a man largely forgotten in American historical memory. Once this man was a household name, frequently featured on the front pages of our nationÂ’s newspapers and spoken from the mouths of reporters on the nightly news. That man is Ngo Dinh Diem, president of the Republic of Vietnam (better known as South Vietnam) from 1955...

    Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler survived World War II and was living in South America during the 1950s, according to a CIA memo released last week along with other formerly classified files that were related to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Most historians believe Hitler committed suicide in April 1945 as the Soviet Red Army was closing in on Berlin. The memo said a man named Phillip Citroen, a former German SS agent, told a CIA source in Venezuela that while Citroen was working in Colombia, he met a man who not only looked like Hitler, but who was...

    On Thursday, the United States government released thousands of files related to the murder of President John F. Kennedy. President Trump announced the release a few days ago, telling his Twitter followers that they contained some very "interesting" information. Although most political junkies and history buffs were looking forward to this much-anticipated release, there's a "but": at the last moment, Trump decided to delay releasing some documents that were deemed "sensitive" by the FBI and CIA: Mr Trump released 2,891 records but, after requests mostly from the CIA and FBI, said he had been left with "no choice" but to...

    “It’s kind of like discovering a dusty box of papers in your parent’s home,” NBC’s Peter Alexander remarks this morning … if your dad was J. Edgar Hoover or James Jesus Angleton. Mostly as promised, the government finally released most of its heretofore secret archive on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy almost exactly fifty-four years ago. After a last-minute objection from the CIA, a small group of documents were withheld for further review, but there’s enough to keep historians busy for a while — including an unknown statement from FBI Director Hoover two days after the assassination.In...

    A British newspaper received an anonymous phone call about "big news" in the United States minutes before President John F. Kennedy was shot, newly released files on the assassination say. A batch of 2,800 declassified documents includes a memo from the CIA to the director of the FBI, dated Nov. 26, 1963, about a call received by the Cambridge News on Nov. 22, the day Kennedy was killed in Dallas. The memo from deputy CIA Director James Angleton says the caller said that "the Cambridge News reporter should call the American Embassy in London for some big news, and then...

    THE FBI was passed information suggesting a US cop was JFK’s real assassin, according to recently released files, feeding fears of further conspiracy theories. The internal document dated five months after the US president’s death details intelligence received from an informant. JFK was shot as he was driven through the streets of Dallas, Texas. It claims officer JD Tippit – who was killed by Lee Harvey Oswald around 45 minutes after Kennedy’s assassination – was the real trigger man, not Oswald. Oswald was fingered for the killing but was himself shot dead by mafia-linked nightclub owner Jack Ruby while in...

    President Trump delayed on Thursday evening the release of thousands of pages of classified documents related to the John F. Kennedy assassination, bowing to pressure from the CIA, FBI and other federal agencies still seeking to keep some final secrets about the nearly 54-year-old investigation. The president allowed the immediate release of 2,800 records by the National Archives, following a last-minute scramble to meet a 25-year legal deadline. After lobbying by national security officials, the remaining documents will be reviewed during a 180-day period. In a memo released by the White House, Trump said: “I am ordering today that the...

    "There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead." J. Edgar Hoover, the director of the FBI, dictated that line in a memo he issued on Nov. 24, 1963, the day Jack Ruby killed Lee Harvey Oswald as Oswald was being transported to the Dallas County Jail after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. The memo is one of at least 52 records never previously made public that were included in the release Thursday of about 2,800 unredacted government documents related to Kennedy's murder in Dallas two days earlier. President Donald Trump approved withholding an...

    The Soviet Union theorized that President Lyndon B. Johnson could have been behind JFK’s assassination — and also feared Moscow could be blamed and attacked, according to documents in a major release of files related to Kennedy’s slaying on Thursday. The Dec. 1, 1966, FBI memo, which relayed unconfirmed speculation, noted that sources said the KGB “was in possession of data purporting to indicate President Johnson was responsible for the assassination of the late President John F. Kennedy.” The memo, which was forwarded to the White House by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover with the all-caps title “REACTION OF SOVIET...
