Wild JFK Files: Conspiracy Theories, Fidel Castro Bounty, Strippers And Sex Parties With Sinatra
Nearly 54 years after President John F. Kennedy was killed on November 22, 1963, the U.S. public is finally getting some access to the government files that have been kept under wraps. The classified records were scheduled to be made public by Oct. 26, under the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act of 1992. Through the act, President Donald Trump had the power to stop the release of the documents on the grounds that the release of the documents to the public could harm intelligence, law enforcement, military operations or foreign relations. In the end, President Trump did block some of the files and only 2,891 documents from the archives were made public. Included in the files are some interesting anecdotes about conspiracy theories galore, Fidel Castro bounty, sex parties with Frank Sinatra, and a stripper named “Kitty.”
The files on the infamous assassination consist of 5 million pages of records, photographs, videos, and audio recordings. On Thursday, the never-before-seen documents were made available on the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) website. The Washington Post and the Mirror combed through the JFK records and found some of the more intriguing and tantalizing stories from the 2,800 files.
