With the release of long-awaited documents… will conspiracy theories explode – or die down?

There are officially thousands of classified documents on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy able to be viewed online. President Trump ordered the release of 2,800 records. Officials at the National Archives have made a point in trying to keep expectations of the documents low, saying that any major revelations have already been released. Below are some of the most revealing statement contained in the released documents:

  • Officials were looking for Oswald prior to the assassination.
  • Oswald spoke to ‘member of KGB assassination unit.’ In a 1963 call intercepted in Mexico City, Oswald asked if there was “anything new concerning the telegram to Washington.”
  • FBI warned Dallas police of threat to kill Oswald.
  • A British newspaper was warned in advance. Less than 30 minutes before the shooting, a reporter with “Cambridge Evening News” got a call and was told to call the US Embassy for “some big news.”
