Was John F. Kennedy assassinated because he was on the verge of telling the public the truth about UFOs?

Dallas-area author and strangeness researcher Nick Redfern says, true or not, the belief is fairly widespread in the UFO investigation community.

(He would know, Redfern has written 28 books on a wide variety of unsolved mysteries, including Monster Files, The Real Men in Black and Celebrity Secrets.) I asked Redfern to summarize the curious theory for us as JFK 50 approaches.

Per Redfern:

“One of the major areas of controversy surrounding the JFK assassination of November 22, 1963 is that which suggests a link between the tragic event and the subject of (wait for it... ) UFOs."

Was JFK whacked to prevent him from revealing the truth about flying saucers?

"Guy Banister (portrayed in Oliver Stone’s JFK movie by Ed Asner) was someone that New Orleans district-attorney, Jim Garrison, suspected was involved in a plot to kill Kennedy. As an FBI agent in 1947, Banister investigated numerous UFO sightings for J. Edgar Hoover and received a classified briefing on the subject in July 1947.

"Fred Crisman was a man who also came under the scrutiny of Garrison, and someone who was identified as one of three 'hoboes' detained after JFK’s death. Crisman had an intelligence-based background and claimed to have handled UFO debris in the 1940s.

"CIA asset Clay Shaw (played by Tommy Lee Jones in JFK and another one of Garrison’s targets) had connections to Crisman. Colonel Philip Corso, of the U.S. Army, claimed to have handled UFO wreckage recovered at Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.

"At the time of his death in 1998, Corso was working on a book titled The Day after Dallas, which, claimed Corso, would finally reveal the truth about JFK’s death... "
