MOSCOW, February 23 – RIA Novosti. Former CIA Director James Woolsey blamed the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the USSR Nikita Khrushchev for the death of the 35th US President John F. Kennedy. The New York Post writes about this with reference to a joint book by Wolsey and Lieutenant General of Foreign Intelligence of Communist Romania Ion Pacepa “Operation Dragon: The Kremlin's Secret War Against America.”
According to the authors, Lee Harvey Oswald who killed Kennedy was a KGB officer. The USSR allegedly recruited the man in 1957 when he served in the US Navy in Japan. After completing a series of secret missions, Khrushchev “personally ordered” the American to crack down on the President of the United States. “Although Oswald wanted to stay in the Soviet Union, he was eventually persuaded to return to the United States to kill Kennedy, whom Khrushchev despised. Oswald … was married to a girl from USSR and sent back to the States in June 1962 “, – stated in the book.
However, later, the Soviet authorities “changed their minds” to kill Kennedy, and Oswald was told to abandon the plan. But he “had a blind love for the USSR” and did not obey the order, the authors say.
At the same time, the book clarifies that all the evidence of these statements is contained in the 26-volume report of the Warren Commission, but it is so “encrypted” that no one has yet understood what is written there.
One of the most popular US presidents, John F. Kennedy, was assassinated on November 22, 1963. When the convoy of the head of state followed the streets of Dallas, he was shot several times. Police arrested Lee Harvey Oswald on suspicion of murder. A few days later, he was shot dead at the police station by Dallas resident Jack Ruby. He died of lung cancer in 1967.
