8. UFO Cover-Up Theory
JFK’s letter to the CIA regarding their secret UFO files
No list of conspiracy theories would be complete without at least one involving UFOs! According to this notion, President Kennedy was assassinated for showing too much interest in alien activity. The two crucial pieces of ‘evidence’ here are: a letter written by JFK to the CIA in which he demands to see secret UFO files; and a note from the CIA director that says, “As you must know, Lancer [President Kennedy’s Secret Service code name] has made some inquiries regarding our activities, which we cannot allow.”
“The most important idea that people have not grasped at all is that this program started in early 1942,” says Robert Wood, former Deputy Director of major aerospace manufacturer and defence contractor McDonnell Douglas. “The second most important idea is that the program is not under the control of the president and when the president was about to leak it, they bumped him off.” Perhaps Kennedy should have tried the Men In Black.
