Veteran JFK researcher Bill Kelly asks a good question about the CIA’s media blitz at the LBJ Library in Austin Texas last week.
The CIA was eager to tout how the Agency briefed the new President Lyndon B. Johnson after the death of JFK.
“What about the presidential briefings leading up to the assassination?” Kelly asks.
“They are even more relevant to who killed him – especially the reports on the Venezuelan arms cache – a covert operation directly connected to what happened at Dealey Plaza.”
