Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 November 22, 1963),
commonly known as "Jack" or by his initials
JFK, was the 35th President of the United States, serving
from January 1961 until he was assassinated in November
35th President of the United States
military service as commander of Motor Torpedo Boats PT-109
and PT-59 during World War II in the South Pacific, Kennedy
represented Massachusetts' 11th congressional district
in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1947 to 1953
as a Democrat. Thereafter, he served in the U.S. Senate
from 1953 until 1960. Kennedy defeated Vice President
and Republican candidate Richard Nixon in the 1960 U.S.
presidential election. At age 43, he was the youngest
to have been elected to the office, the second-youngest
president (after Theodore Roosevelt), and the first person
born in the 20th century to serve as president. A Catholic,
Kennedy was the only non-Protestant president, and was
the only president to have won a Pulitzer Prize. Events
during his presidency included the Bay of Pigs Invasion,
the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Space Race by initiating
Project Apollo (which would culminate in the moon landing),
the building of the Berlin Wall, the African-American
Civil Rights Movement, and early stages of the Vietnam
War. Therein, Kennedy increased the number of military
advisers, special operation forces, and helicopters in
an effort to curb the spread of communism in South East
Asia. The Kennedy administration adopted the policy of
the Strategic Hamlet Program which was implemented by
the South Vietnamese government. It involved certain forced
relocation, village internment, and segregation of rural
South Vietnamese from northern and southern communist
was assassinated on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.
Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of the crime and arrested
that evening, but Jack Ruby shot and killed him two days
later, before a trial could take place. The FBI and the
Warren Commission officially concluded that Oswald was
the lone assassin. However, the United States House Select
Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) concluded that those
investigations were flawed and that Kennedy was probably
assassinated as the result of a conspiracy. Kennedy's
controversial Department of Defense TFX fighter bomber
program led to a Congressional investigation that lasted
from 1963 to 1970. Since the 1960s, information concerning
Kennedy's private life has come to light. Details of Kennedy's
health problems with which he struggled have become better
known, especially since the 1990s. Although initially
kept secret from the general public, reports of Kennedy's
philandering have garnered much press. Kennedy ranks highly
in public opinion ratings of U.S. presidents.
MJ-12 and Outer Space
2002 by Linda Moulton Howe
12, 2002 New York City, New York - This past week in Manhattan,
I met with reporter and author Jim Marrs to discuss U.
S. government documents he was using for a television
interview about MJ-12, also known as Majestic 12 or Majority
12. That Top Secret group of scientists, military officers
and businessmen was allegedly appointed by President Harry
S. Truman in 1947 to monitor and research the activity
of extraterrestrial biological entities on the earth while
simultaneously manipulating misinformation to keep all
facts and physical evidence from the media and public
"in the interest of national security." Jim's
first book, Crossfire © 1989, was a national bestseller
and used as a basis for Oliver Stone's feature film, JFK.
Other books by Jim Marrs have included Alien Agenda ©
1997 and Rule By Secrecy © 2000, each advancing insights
about the interaction of one or more non-human intelligences
with this planet since at least the Sumerian domination
of Mesopotamia (modern day Iran and Iraq).
and I also talked about my experiences back in the early
1980s after I had produced the television documentary
A Strange Harvest for the CBS affiliate KMGH-TV in Denver,
Colorado about the worldwide animal mutilation mystery
linked to alien life forms. I had been told by two different
government intelligence agents in two different parts
of the United States that John F. Kennedy had been assassinated
on November 22, 1963 on orders of the CIA because after
a long and tense period of grievances that included the
controversial pull back of American air cover at the Bay
of Pigs, JFK - based on some firsthand knowledge from
his service as a U. S. Naval intelligence officer - had
demanded access to all files and images concerning an
extraterrestrial presence on earth.
showed me the following documents which first emerged
in the MJ-12 research of Robert and Ryan Wood, father
and son, who have been studying more than 2,000 alleged
U. S. government documents from various sources since
the early 1990s. See their website at bottom of this report.

of a program of substantive cooperation with the Soviet
Union in the field of outer space, including the development
of specific technical proposals. I assume that you will
work closely with the Department of State and other agencies
proposals should be developed with a view to their possible
discussion with the Soviet Union as a direct outcome of
my September 20 proposal for broader cooperation between
the United States and the USSR in outer space, including
cooperation in lunar landing programs. All proposals or
suggestions originating within the Government relating
to this general subject will be referred to you for your
consideration and evaluation.
addition to developing substantive proposals, I expect
that you will assist the Secretary of State in exploring
problems of procedure and timing connected with holding
discussions with the Soviet Union and in proposing for
my consideration the channels which would be most desirable
from our point of view. In this connection the channel
of contact developed by Dr. Dryden between NASA and the
Soviet Academy of Sciences has been quite effective, and
I believe that we should continue to utilize it as appropriate
as a means of continuing the dialogue between the scientists
of both countries.

October 21, 1990
thirty years later after President Kennedy was assassinated,
many alleged government documents about MJ-12, retrievals
of crashed aerial vehicles, technology and extraterrestrial
biological entities have surfaced from a variety of known
and unknown sources. One unsigned document dated October
21, 1990 and marked "CONFIDENTIAL, 0 copies, No dissemination"
emerged allegedly from a British and American think tank
in England about a program to acclimate the public to
"first-hand encounter" phenomenon and "crop
circles." Jim Marrs has had a copy for several years
and agreed its contents could be shared with the public,
acknowledging that source verification is lacking.
Observations on Public Acclimation Program
metered release of information to the public through various
unofficial channels continues to generate much interest
and an increasing level of awareness, with little if any
observable side-effects, other than healthy skepticism
on the part of some people.
would like to suggest continuing the present approach,
as it is making information available to those who are
psychologically ready for it, without causing stress on
those who are not ready.
present approach is also proving helpful to those who
are having first-hand encounters. It is providing them
with a context in which to put experiences they cannot
otherwise explain or understand. Having some conception
of this phenomenon is an enormous psychological relief
to these people - and helps them get on with their lives,
as best as possible. Providing information which helps
people to cope will become increasingly important as the
percentage of the population having these encounters continues
to rise. Some assistance in this area can be expected
by various civilian support groups, which have been formed
by interested parties.
time, it may be appropriate to increase the accuracy and
the consistency of information in circulation. Possibly,
as the public gets more comfortable with IAC sightings
(Identified Aerial Craft and/or Identified Alien Craft)
and 'crop circles,' additional types of information can
be released. It appears most of the research community
is running one to two years or more ahead of the mainstream
media. this gives some timeframe for possible disclosures
to the general public - while providing advance details
to those who are ready for it now. Having a certain number
of informed citizens could well prove to be an invaluable
resource in the face of unpredictable future events. Indeed,
history may record that it was these aware people who
set aside their differences and worked together most to
help humanity, their country and their government in the
changing times and challenges ahead."
