(AbsoluteNews.com) – On November 22, 1963, Americans were horrified to learn President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was killed. A week after his death, President Lyndon B. Johnson created the President’s Commission on the Assassination of President Kennedy, known by all as the Warren Commission, to investigate the murder.
While a report and many of the documents related to it were later released, the CIA argued many of them should remain under seal until 2039. Recently, President Joe Biden ordered the National Archives to release nearly 1,500 classified files.
Lee Harvey Oswald, a communist sympathizer and former Marine, shot President Kennedy while he, First Lady Jackie Kennedy, Governor John Connally and his wife, Nellie, were riding in an open convertible through Dealey Plaza in Dallas, TX. The motorcade rushed to Parkland Memorial Hospital where the president was pronounced dead. The governor was also seriously wounded in the attack.
Hours after the assassination, with a blood-soaked Jackie Kennedy at his side, Johnson was sworn in as president of the United States. The next week, the Warren Commission was formed by executive order.
The Warren Commission Files – Soviet Revelations
On Wednesday, December 15, the National Archives and Records Administration released 1,500 files related to the assassination. In the days since the document dump, historians and average Americans have been sifting through them to find out everything they can about the 35th president’s murder.
According to a newly released CIA memo, Lee Harvey Oswald met with a KGB agent in Mexico City in the months leading up to the assassination. An intercepted phone call revealed the American was in the Soviet Embassy in the city on September 29, less than two months before he shot Kennedy.
A year before the president was killed, someone called the US embassy in Australia to warn officials the Soviet Union was going to pay someone $100,000 to carry out the assassination. However, no one at the embassy ever called the CIA to alert them of the threat. Then after the president died, a man identified as a driver for the Soviet embassy, called the embassy in Australia to say he believed the Soviets financed the murder.
The new documents reveal the defunct Soviet Union may have played a bigger role in the assassination than previously known. With hundreds of documents yet to sift through, who knows what other juicy bits of information might be in there.
Have you read any of the documents yet? Who do you think was involved in the assassination?
