More on UFOs & JFK
As a follow-on to my previous article on JFK, Guy Banister, and UFOs, there's another one from me at Mysterious Universe which expands on the controversy. Here's how it starts:
In response to my recent article, “UFOs, JFK, and an Enigmatic Character,” sixteen people contacted me to see what I thought about the allegations that President John F. Kennedy’s assassination – on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas – had a connection to the UFO issue. The reason being that the aforementioned article was focused on a man named Guy Banister. He was someone who investigated a number of UFO reports while working as a special-agent of the FBI in 1947. He was also someone who turns up in numerous books on the Kennedy assassination. Usually, from a sinister and conspiratorial perspective.
It’s fair to say that within the field of Ufology, there are more than a few people who believe – or suspect – that JFK was whacked to prevent him from blowing the lid on his knowledge of the UFO phenomenon. I’ve written about aspects of this highly controversial issue before, and it’s worth noting just how many connections there are between UFOs and the killing of JFK. Or, to be absolutely correct, the assumed connections. Ufology is, at times, very good at putting pieces of a ufological puzzle together. On other occasions, however, the field is guilty of leaping to conclusions based on nothing but assumption and by playing the extraterrestrial equivalent of “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.”
