Former director of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) James Woolsey, said that the 35th president of the country, John F. Kennedy, was assassinated on the orders of Nikita Khrushchev, the former first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.
The New York Post writes about this with reference to the book “Operation Dragon: The Kremlin’s Secret War Against America”, written by Woolsey and the former chief of foreign intelligence of socialist Romania, Ion Mihai Pacepa, who fled to the United States in the late 70s.
The authors of the book claim that Khrushchev himself ordered to kill Kennedy Lee Harvey Oswald. Later, the KGB allegedly considered the operation risky and changed their minds, but Oswald did not like this state of affairs.
“Although Oswald wanted to stay in the Soviet Union, he was eventually persuaded to return to the United States to assassinate President Kennedy, whom Khrushchev had come to despise.
Oswald was presented with a Soviet wife and sent back to the United States in June 1962,” Woolsey and Pacepa wrote.
Explaining their point of view, Pacepa and Woolsey point out that the evidence supporting their point of view is contained in the 26-volume Warren Commission report, but due to the abundance of code words, it has not been possible to decipher it until now.
“When decoded, this evidence confirms the fact that John F. Kennedy’s killer, Lee Harvey Oswald, secretly met in Mexico City with his Soviet operative,” Comrade Kostin “, who belongs to the KGB’s Thirteenth Overseas Assassination Department – emphasized in the book.
It is alleged that Moscow has tried to recruit Oswald since 1957.
John F. Kennedy, one of the most popular US politicians who became the youngest president in the country’s history in 1961, was assassinated on November 22, 1963, during the passage of the presidential motorcade through the streets of Dallas,
Kennedy was shot several times. The first bullet hit him in the back of the neck and went out of the throat, the second hit was in the head.
On suspicion of murder, the police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald – a former US Marine who lived for some time in the USSR, who was shot and killed a few days later in prison by Dallas resident Jack Ruby. Ruby later died in prison.
However, there are a number of hypotheses that challenge the findings of the FBI and present alternative versions of the Kennedy assassination.
