John F. Kennedy, commonly known as "Jack" or by his initials JFK, was the 35th President of the United States. He was brother of RFK, Robert F. Kennedy. After his assassination, he was succeeded by his vice president, Lyndon Johnson.

On 7 August 2016, James DiEugenio of Citizens for Truth about the Kennedy Assassination (CTKA) wrote:

Richard Mahoney's landmark volume JFK: Ordeal in Africa was a trailblazing effort in the field of excavating what Kennedy's foreign policy really was, and where its intellectual provenance came from. It was published in 1983. Even though it bore the Oxford University Press imprimatur, it had little influence. And although Mahoney's book dealt with three African trouble spots, the majority of the book was focused on the colossal Congo crisis. Which, like other problems, Kennedy inherited from President Eisenhower:
As we learn more about the Congo conflagration, we begin to see how large and complex that struggle was. Large in the sense that, in addition to the UN, several nations were directly involved. Complex in the sense that there were subterranean agendas at work. For instance, although the UK and France ostensibly and officially supported the United Nations effort there, they were actually subverting it on the ground through third party agents. In fact, when one studies the seething cauldron that was the Congo crisis, there are quite a few villains involved.
There are only three heroes I can name: Patrice Lumumba, Dag Hammarskjöld and John F. Kennedy. All three were murdered while the struggle was in process. Their deaths allowed the democratic experiment in Congo to fail spectacularly. Ultimately, it allowed one form of blatant exploitation, colonialism, to be replaced by another, imperialism.[1]

Assassination

Full article: JFK/Assassination

John F Kennedy was assassinated in Dealey Plaza, Dallas on 22 November 1963 by a cabal of establishment insiders. Many members of the US public immediately suspected a conspiracy, necessitating aggressive action to try to promote the "lone nut" theory which blamed the designated patsy, Lee Harvey Oswald. Peter Dale Scott reports that the biggest hitch in the plan was the failure to kill Oswald. After he was captured alive, Jack Ruby was induced to kill him to avoid the need for a trial. The official narrative was sured up with the help of the Warren Commission, which was supported by LBJ (the new president, himself a conspirator) and collaboration from the editors of the US commercially-controlled media. The HSCA later reversed this offical verdict, concluding that JFK was probably killed by a conspiracy, but with the exception of Clay Shaw, no one was ever prosecuted for JFK's assassination.

Policies

Towards the end of his presidency, Kennedy bravely challenged a number of entrenched interests in the US establishment.

Relationship with the CIA

Full article: CIA

JFK reportedly wanted to "splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the winds."[2] He fired Allen Dulles who later was the most active member of the Warren Commission which covered up his murder.

Secrecy“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths, and to secret proceedings.”
