What do the JFK Files tell us?

What do the JFK Files tell us?by

As had been foreshadowed by President Trump in recent days, the time has come for over 2800 records collated with regard to the assassination of John F Kennedy to be released. Many people – conspiracy theorists among them – have been clamoring to read up on what could be revealed, particularly as it is still and event which has multiple different ‘endings’ or ‘explanations’ offered thanks to grassy knolls and more besides. What has been revealed, however, is a series of records which offers oddities and curiosities in equal measure – and much of the intel surrounds concerns regarding Cuba at the time.

Discoveries made from the files’ release include the fact that Cuba was deemed unlikely to try assassinating the President in retaliation to the CIA allegedly trying to take down Fidel Castro. Castro, again, comes up in further files now revealed, as it seems that the Cuban leader had various price tags placed on his head in an attempt to encourage his overthrowing. Other lines of enquiry could have included the Communist Party, a stripper by the name of ‘Kitty’, and a bizarre allegation regarding a previous President.

It was alleged at the time, according to an informant in touch with the FBI, that ‘documented proof’ could be provided with regard to Lyndon B Johnson’s supposed connections with the Klu Klux Klan. Said proof, apparently, never materialized – making the moment in the files all the more bizarre.

Most curiously for conspiracy theorists, however, is documentation regarding JFK’s supposed killer – as documentation regarding a deposition offered by former CIA director Richard Helms seemingly cuts off as he is asked “Is there any way information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy which in any way shows Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA Agent” – leaving things, interesting, hanging. What could this mean?

Regardless of theories that may spring up from the documents being released, it seems that there is plenty to read into – though some media sources claim that they do not carry the dramatic heft that they perhaps could have done. Regardless – you can read up on the BBC’s summation of the reports here – and do a little more digging yourself to see whether or not you think there is anything of particular interest worth sifting through for. It is an event that rocked the world at the time – and, even now, theorists are still keen to discuss it at length!
