Technology, like all things, is a double-edged sword. The internet, for instance, can connect people all around the globe. At the same time, it can lead to the invasion of privacy. What matters is not the invention but how it is used. And Sony’s patent on a contact lens that records everything you see is questionable, to say the least.
Rather than focus on improving vision, Sony’s new contact lens records video upon request. Sensors embedded in the lens are capable of detect the difference between voluntary and involuntary blinks.
When developed, the image capture and storage technology would be embedded in the lens, near the iris. Piezoelectric sensors would convert the twitches of the eye into energy to power the lens. View the full patent on the USPTO website

At this point in time, the contact lens is only theoretical. However, Sony isn’t the only tech giant attempting to create it. Google is reportedly working on a contact lens camera. With the populace increasingly dependent on technology, such as smartphones and laptops, it seems sensible to assume that in the near future, this kind of technology will be developed.
If so, people need to ask themselves how comfortable they are with the repercussions of constantly being monitored and recorded. Such is a scenario out of 1984 by George Orwell, and that resource was meant to be a warning — not an instruction manual.

Unlike other forms of contacts and glasses that created an augmented reality or hook you up to the internet, Sony’s new patent is on a simple set of contacts that can record video.
The recording is turned on and off with the user’s blink and sensors can detect if it was an intentional or unintentional one. The image capture technology and data storage would be held within the contact lens.
Simple, piezoelectric sensors would allow the movements of the eye to charge the battery of the device.
The task, now, is to fit all of this technology, comfortably, into the lens.
When it comes to human history, we are, as author Graham Hancock once coined, a species with amnesia. We have a hard time putting together the pieces of the puzzle, and the explanations for what took place at various points throughout human history still remains, for the most part, a mystery. On top of all this confusion and lack of understanding, comes indoctrination via education. Scientific and religious dogma still dominate, and despite the fact that new discoveries are being made every single day, and more “missing links” continue to pop up in the mainstream, most of the world is still unaware of these discoveries and their implications. One of these discoveries is the idea of advanced intelligent ancient civilizations who once roamed the Earth, and the evidence to back it up.
History is not always as it’s told, which is why critical thinking and investigation is important if one is passionate about such subjects. Relying on basic “education” can mislead us and misinform us in some cases. Another important point to make note of is the classification of information. According to the best estimates of some historians, the U.S. government alone classifies more than 500 million pages of documents every single year. For a historian looking to archive the history of the United States, this would be nearly impossible to do so in an accurate manner.

A lot of information from the past contradicts much of what we’ve been told today.
It seems, in the fields of human history, archaeology and our understanding of ancient civilizations, new discoveries seem to be popping up every single day.
From the teachings of the Sumerians, Mayans, ancient Egyptians, Greeks, all the way to Atlantians and more, there are facts that still remain unacknowledged when piecing together the mystery that is human history. These topics, and several examples can be found doing some simple independent research, but for a more in-depth look with multiple examples that come from our ancient world, I suggest you start off with the work of author Graham Hancock if you’re really passionate about lost ancient civilizations.

This article will focus in on Atlantis, and the possible extraterrestrial activity that occurred in those times.
It’s quite odd that, when it comes to the works of Plato and others who lived in times we know very little about, we ourselves choose to label what is real and what is mythological. We do this almost instinctively, and it seems to be based on what conflicts with our ingrained belief systems at the time. When new information is presented which goes against the grain, and has the potential to shift ones own or the collective paradigm, it’s not always easy to accept and even easier to ridicule, even in the face of strong evidence.
“Strange times are these in which we live when old and young are taught falsehoods in school. And the person that dares to tell the truth is called at once a lunatic and fool” – Plato
Plato, and other scholars who came before and after him, as shown in the literature, discussed at length human history, the origin of the human species, and the true nature of reality. How Plato, and those before and after him, were able to discuss aspects of space and physics which were only recently confirmed in modern history remains a mystery – similar to what we see with Buddhism and quantum physics. So much knowledge has been shared from the fraction of documents and text we have from that era, that it is truly mind-altering to contemplate the accuracy of their thoughts when you compare it to modern day knowledge.`
In many instances, our modern day world is trying hard to catch up to ancient wisdom.
One topic of interest among some of our ancients, is the lost land of Atlantis. Plato is one who wrote about it, and he lived in a time closer to the period in question. He wasn’t the only one to do so, but why is it that when ancient documents and ‘influential’ figures who describe aspects of ancient society like social norms, financial structure and education, they’re taken extremely seriously, but when speaking of an advanced ancient civilizations and spirituality, they’re words are considered mythical?
Many people have tried to piece this mystery together. A more modern day example would be M. Pierre Termeir, a member of the Academy of Sciences and Director of Service of the Geologic Chart of France, who gave a lecture regarding the Atlantean civilization. He makes a compelling case for further study of this lost city, which was the subject of significant importance for researchers at the Smithsonian Institution, as emphasized by their Annual Report of the Board of Regents of The Smithsonian Institution for the year ending June 30th, 1915.
In the report, author M. Pierre Termeir,
After a long period of disdainful indifference, observe how in the last few years science is returning to the study of Atlantis. How many naturalists, geologists, zoologists, or botanists are asking one another today whether Plato has not transmitted to us, with slight amplification, a page from the actual history of mankind. No affirmation is yet permissible; but it seems more and more evident that a vast region, continental or made up of great islands, has collapsed west of the Pillars of Hercules, otherwise called the Straight of Gibraltar, and that its collapse occurred in the not far distant past. In any event, the question of Atlantis is placed anew before men of science; and since I do not believe that it can ever be solved without the aid of oceanography, I have thought it natural to discuss it here, in this temple of maritime science, and to call to such a problem, long scorned but now being revived, the attention of oceanographers, as well as the attention of those who, though immersed in the tumult of cities, lend an ear to the distant murmur of the sea.
According to Plato, Atlantis was inhabited by ‘earth-born’ and ‘primitive’ human beings. One of them was wooed by the god Poseidon, who interbred with the human beings, and they eventually bore five children. This interbreeding between gods and humans is a common theme in many historical texts found throughout the world.
Was it really interbreeding between beings from another planet?
The land was divided into concentric zones of land and water. Two zones of land and three zones of water surrounded the central island, which had warm springs of water and cold springs of water. The land became an established country, with a wise government and an industry that saw them soar to advanced technological heights, beyond anything we’ve reached today.
According to Plato, Atlantis was full of large and beautiful palaces, temples, docks, and a network of various bridges and canals that united different sections of the kingdom.
His description was very precise. For example, when describing the construction of public buildings, he explains:
“They circumscribed each of the land zones with a wall, the outer wall being covered with brass, the middle with tin, and the inner, which encompassed the citadel, with orichalc. The citadel, on the central island, contained the palaces, temples, and other public buildings. In its center, surrounded by a wall of gold, was a sanctuary dedicated to Cleito and Poseidon.” (source)

“The part of Atlantis facing the sea was described as lofty and precipitous, but about the central city was a plain sheltered by mountains renowned for their size, number, and beauty. The plain yielded two crops each year, in the winter being watered by rains and in the summer by immense irrigation canals, which were also used for transportation. The plain was divided into sections and in time of war each section supplied its quota of fighting men and chariots.” (source)
Atlantis was massive, ruled by multiple kings who all had control over their land. Their relationships with the other kings were governed by an original code of ethics that was engraved by the first ten kings. “The chief laws of the Atlantean kings were that they should not take up arms against each other and that they should come to the assistance of any of their number who was attacked.” (source)
Eventually, Atlantis fell due to greed, ego, and black magic. Qualities not rare among ‘men.’ It’s these qualities that still exist today which the human race, on a collective level, that we need to let go of.
To read in more detail how Atlantis fell, according to Plato, you can read the article linked below:
The Extraterrestrial Question
As you can see from above, Plato’s description of the ‘Gods’ and how they assisted, as well as inbred with the native human populations, is nothing new.
Were these Gods extraterrestrial? It’s not an uncommon thought, which is probably made most evident by popular mainstream TV shows, like Ancient Aliens.
Another strong point to entertain this thought (the extraterrestrial hypothesis) is the fact that Plato’s (among others’) description of ancient Greek society, the Romans, historical accounts of various events (like the burning of the Library of Alexandria) , and more (which are all used to teach people about ancient Greek society today), are all extremely accurate.
Why then, is it so hard to believe accounts given by Plato, in the exact same manner of description and enthusiasm, to be true? Because it doesn’t “line up” with our belief systems?
What makes this thought so relevant now is all of the information which has emerged within the past couple of years alone regarding the UFO/extraterrestrial phenomenon.
Pop culture sensation, Tom Delonge, seems to be at the forefront of a United States disclosure movement. He’s started what’s called the To The Stars Academy, and joining him are high ranking Department of Defence officials, like Louis Elizondo, an ex CIA director, and technological geniuses like Steve Justice, a recently retired 30-year director of Lockheed Martin Skunkworks. (Read more about this in the article linked below).
They’ve come together, in partnership with the US government, to let the world know that the UFO phenomenon is real, that objects are commonly tracked on radar and visually confirmed, objects which travel at speeds and perform maneuvers that no known air-craft on Earth can. They (the Pentagon in partnership with To The Stars) recently released a video of one of these technologically advanced craft. The people at To The Stars have mentioned on more than one occasion that there is good evidence to believe we are not alone.
Despite the fact that this is now being presented to the mainstream, it’s not a new phenomenon and these types of encounters have been documented for decades.
You can view the video and our discussion about it in the article linked below:
Sure, UFO doesn’t mean extraterrestrial, but when you have objects travelling and performing technical capabilities that defy our laws of physics, it’s not something to ignore.
On top of that, the extraterrestrial hypothesis as on of several possible explanations for the UFO phenomena does have, what some scientists consider to be, strong evidence behind it. You can read more about that discussion in the article linked below:
This recent acknowledgement by the US government regarding UFOs does raise a lot of questions, especially given the fact that western governments have been deceiving us on several topics for a long time.

When it comes to Atlantis, and ancient Greece, Delonge (of To The Stars) mention some interest stuff in his recent Podcast with Joe Rogan. Whether or not you chose to believe it or not is up to you, but keep in mind, the UFO phenomena is not a reality, and the extraterrestrial hypothesis is (and has been) backed by some of the most notable scientists throughout human history, as well as high ranking Defence employees like the ones Tom has gathered together with.
“It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system. I think that they possibly are manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race that may have been investigating our Earth for centuries.” – Herman Oberth, one of the founding fathers of modern rocketry. (source)
Many scientists, astronauts and employees from within has said, time and time again, that they know many of these unknown objects are indeed extraterrestrial.
Tom states in a Podcast with Joe Rogan:
“I went and met a former director of the CIA and NSA…Right when I sat down and told him about the book you know what he says to me? He goes, “I didn’t read much science fiction when I was a kid but I read a lot about Greek mythology”…The sixth biggest defense contractor in the world is a company called Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC)…and in the front of the building (SAIC’s headquarters) you have an obelisk coming out of a fake leg and two Atlantians on thrones, and they’re both holding pyramids and one says the past and one says the future, and they’re 8 foot tall statues.”
Quite an interesting observation. He also mentioned that “Gods” in this time were extraterrestrial, beings from other worlds and/or dimensions guiding and pushing humanity along with little pushes here and there. These types of figures are described by several ancient cultures throughout the world, more so prior to the Roman empire, when gods became “God.”
So, it is indeed interesting to ponder, were these ‘Gods’ actually extraterrestrial?
I’ll leave you with this video, as I’ve done countless times before, so I apologize if you missed it. Contrary to popular believe, just as there was evidence for the now verified UFO phenomenon, there is evidence that does support the extraterrestrial hypothesis, and a lot of it.

A former North Carolina police officer who is serving time behind bars for statutory rape after impregnating a young teen is now adding insult to injury and has attempted to contact his victim, violating the restrictions set up by his plea agreement, authorities say.
According to the Gaston Gazette, James “Paul” Blair, 52, who is serving out a 12-year prison sentence, sent a letter to a family member in an attempt to get the message to the teen.
The victim’s mother, Karen Vaughn, told the news site that her daughter became sickened by these attempts at contact and had to be hospitalized.
“I have begged and I have asked for them to stop and they never stopped,” Vaughn said. “I called the prison several times and said there’s letters getting out. … Every time I try to push this back out of my mind, he just continuously does this. This child is [now] 15 years old. This has made her sick.”
District Attorney Locke Bell confirmed that corrections officials have told him a similar account, but it will be up to them to decide how the violation could impact Blair’s sentence. The Gazette notes that the maximum term on his plea agreement is nearly 20 years.
“I was amazed that he was stupid enough to do it,” Bell said.
Department of Public Safety officials declined to go into detail but said that the violation was a class B offense. But even before his conviction, Vaughn had claimed that Blair had attempted to contact her daughter while in jail.
Blair, a former officer with the Lowell, N.C., Police Department, was actually meant to be a mentor to the girl, who did have some troubles, but ended up abusing the child’s trust and taking advantage of her.
He took his sick ploy a step further in his repeated attempts to contact the already distressed teen.
“It makes me want to kill him,” the outraged mother said. “Whatever with jail. Jail doesn’t mean anything. The man is still doing it. Apparently he’s getting by with everything.”

One sunny day in October, at the Jefferson Parish correctional center just across the river from downtown New Orleans, Tiffany Burns, 34, was visiting her boyfriend.
The pair had been dating for almost two years and were still giggly in love when a late July knock on the door sent him away. Scooped up by the police after being accused of robbing a suburban bank at gunpoint, Chrishon Brown, 37, was sent to the correctional center while his case worked its way through the court.
A new, unwelcome chapter of their relationship began, with Brown using all his jail funds to call Tiffany, and Tiffany visiting as often as she could.
It was a long drive from her home in the Metairie suburb west of New Orleans, and could sometimes take about an hour each way with the traffic near downtown, but Burns was happy to do it. “When I visit, sometimes I forget about the glass and it feels like we are together again.”
She felt that way during her visit on 12 October, right up until the moment she walked out the jail door and was handed a pamphlet.
“Visit an inmate from anywhere!” exclaimed the heading. A photo of a smiling blond woman using a tablet with her daughter was featured on the next page.
“From now on, no more visits,” said the jail guard, as she shut the door behind Tiffany. “If you want to see him, read that.”
“I didn’t realize that would be my last visit,” Tiffany later said.
Under the new system, in-person visits are no longer allowed. Instead, all visits now must be done by video, either from a smartphone, computer, or at an offsite location.
The pamphlet, published by Securus Technology, makes using a video feed to talk to your loved one seem appealing. It says:
“Do you want to see your loved one more often? Stop missing out on:
• Watching your favorite TV show.
• Singing Happy Birthday.
• Reading a bedtime story … Never miss another moment.”
Under the new system, each video visit made from home costs $12.99 for 20 minutes. In-person visits used to be free.
This shift also raises a legal question: is in-person visitation an inmate’s legal right?
Video technology run by Securus and other companies is now used in hundreds of correctional facilities across the country.
Although data is hard to come by, Lucius Couloute, a research associate at the Prison Policy Initiative, might have the best guess. By scraping information from news articles, social media, and Google alerts, he estimates at least 600 US facilities now have video visitation programs in place. (Securus did not respond to repeated requests for that information.)
Gary York, a retired Florida prison inspector who writes about video visitation, says his experience supports those findings. He says that over the past five years, most jails in his state have turned to using only video visitation and stopped in-person visitation.
Indeed, according to the Prison Policy Initiative’s data, 74% of US correctional facilities that implement video calling end up either reducing in-person visits, or eliminating them altogether.
Security concerns, say the program’s supporters. They point to the conveniences of video, a kind of Skype for the jailed, as a way to combat a nagging security issue: contraband. York says that contraband – drugs, weapons, and more – can be introduced even in no-contact facilities where inmates are separated from visitors by glass. “I’m not going sugarcoat it and say it’s only the visitors that do it,” says York. “Inmate orderlies and officers might be picking up a bag of marijuana that a visitor leaves in the trashcan and getting paid off to deliver it to the inmate. I’ve seen it hundreds of times.”
Another reason is the reallocation of jail personnel. Jefferson Parish Sheriff Joe LoPinto was quoted in a Times-Picayune article as arguing that the new system allows his office to “allocate resources where we think they’re needed, on the streets”. In-person visitation, he said, requires twice as many officers, and York agrees. (LoPinto declined to comment for this story).
Critics, however, say that potential gains are far outweighed by the costs.

In May, the establishment press went into overdrive after learning that Attorney General Jeff Sessions didn’t disclose two 2016 contacts with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak on his disclosure forms applying for security clearance.
On Monday, based on “a newly released document,” the network reported that Sessions was accurately told that the disclosures weren’t required, because those meetings were connected with his Senate duties. In other words, seven months later, the network finally said: “Oops. Never mind.”
CNN’s original report in May already effectively admitted that it was on shaky ground when it added the following to its original dispatch:
After CNN’s story (was) published, a spokesman responded to the reporting with a statement, saying that Sessions was instructed not to list meetings like the ones with Kislyak on his form.
“As a United States Senator, the Attorney General met hundreds — if not thousands — of foreign dignitaries and their staff,” spokesman Ian Prior said. “In filling out the SF-86 form, the Attorney General’s staff consulted with those familiar with the process, as well as the FBI investigator handling the background check, and was instructed not to list meetings with foreign dignitaries and their staff connected with his Senate activities.”
Now let’s look at who CNN relied on for expertise back in May:
A legal expert who regularly assists officials in filling out the form disagrees with the Justice Department’s explanation, suggesting that Sessions should have disclosed the meetings.
“My interpretation is that a member of Congress would still have to reveal the appropriate foreign government contacts notwithstanding it was on official business,” said Mark Zaid, a Washington attorney who specializes in national security law.
Zaid added that in a similar circumstance he advised a member of Congress to list all foreign contacts — including those made during official US government business.
It will surprise very few readers used to the establishment media’s machinations that Zaid has contributed thousands of dollars to the Montgomery County, Maryland Democratic Party Central Committee.
FBI email: Sessions wasn’t required to disclose foreign contacts for security clearance
A newly released document shows that the FBI told an aide to Attorney General Jeff Sessions that Sessions wasn’t required to disclose foreign contacts that occurred in the course of carrying out his government duties when he was a senator.
The FBI email from March bolsters the explanation by the Justice Department for why Sessions didn’t disclose contacts with the Russian ambassador in his application for a US security clearance. When the omission of the foreign contacts on the form was first reported by CNN in May, the Justice Department said Sessions’ office was advised by the FBI that he didn’t need to disclose the meetings.
An FBI agent, whose name isn’t made public in the document released by the bureau, was responding in March to a query from Sessions’ assistant. The assistant sought confirmation of what she said was an earlier conversation on the matter. At the time, news of Sessions’ Russian contacts had recently become public and prompted fierce political criticism.
The agent didn’t recall the earlier conversation but affirmed that “he was not required to list foreign government contacts while in official government business unless he developed personal relationships from such contacts.”
This huge “never mind” should also lead to a wholesale change in the narrative surrounding Sessions’ January confirmation hearing and his decision to recuse himself from Russia-2016 election investigations.
Two of Sessions’ responses to relevant questions asked during that hearing appear below.
The first is from Democratic Senator Patrick Leahy, who asked a simple question, and got a simple answer (see Page 26 at link):
The other answer was in response to a rambling question from Democratic Senator Al Franken. Franken referred to a January 11 CNN report alleging that “There was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump’s surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government,” and asked:
In March, CNN and other press outlets reported that Sessions didn’t mention two contacts during 2016 with Russian ambassador Kislyak, neither of which had anything to do with his role as a “Trump surrogate” during the presidential campaign. Largely due to ginned-up media and Democratic Party pressure as a result of those alleged “omissions,” Sessions recused himself from investigations into alleged 2016 presidential election Russian interference.

It’s not unreasonable to contend that Sessions made a big mistake by letting the left and the establishment press intimidate him into recusing himself, when their published claims ended up, yet again, being fake news. Perhaps the Attorney General should consider changing his mind.

King Tut Warned “Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King.” after this there where many mysterious deaths surrounding those involved in the excavation and disturbance of king Tutankhamen.
King Tut is thought to have been born in 1341 B.C.E. in Egypt. He was named Tutankhaten, which translated means “the living image of Aten.” After coming into power he changed his name to Tutankhamun, which means “the living image of Amun.” Aten being the sun god, while Amun is king of the gods. Tut was a young pharaoh in power for 8-9 years and just 19 years old when he died. But there was a lot of mystery surrounding Tut when his tomb was finally discovered in 1922.
Upon the discovery of Tutankhamen’s tomb, journalists reported seeing the following inscription near the door: “Death shall come on swift wings to him who disturbs the peace of the King.” What followed the discovery, was a series of mysterious deaths linked to the opening of Tut’s tomb.
The first was that of Egyptologist Lord Carnarvon. He and Howard Carter were the first to open the tomb. A few months after the discovery Carnarvon died from an infected mosquito bite on his cheek. The link to Tut was quite spooky as later examination showed that Tut had malaria when he died, but even more eerily the pharaoh’s body had a similar scar on his cheek. It is also rumoured that the lights of Carnarvon house blacked out with no explanation when he died.
This was the start of a series of mishaps that followed relating to Tut. Howard Carter gifted his friend Sir Bruce Ingham a paperweight which was from a mummified hand. The bracelet had the following inscription: “Cursed be he who moves my body. To him shall come fire, water and pestilence.” Not long following this Ingham’s house burned down. When he rebuilt it, the house was hit by a flood.
George Jay Gould died of pneumonia on May 16, 1923, when after visiting the tomb of Tutankhamen he contracted a fever.
Audrey Herbert the brother to the main financier Lord Carnarvon, died from a mysterious death, after becoming blind a few months after the opening of the tomb.
Hugh Evelyn-White was the archeologist who was tasked with the excavation of the body- he committed suicide hanging himself leaving a note saying “I have succumbed to a curse which forces me to disappear”.
Aaron Ember another Egyptologist who was close friends with Carnarvon died a few years after the opening of the tomb. His house burned down, and he died trying to save his copy of the now famous book The Egyptian Book of the Dead.
Archibald Douglas Reed, the person who X-rayed the mummy mysteriously died in 1924.
Prince Ali Kamel Fahmy Bey was a 23-year-old Egyptian prince who was shot dead by his wife shortly after he was photographed visiting the Tut’s tomb. Not part of the team, but still linked in to the project.
There are more deaths loosely related to people coming into contact with king Tut, but these seem to be the most obvious and high profile. This makes us question what we know about reality, could a coincidence of this magnitude happen or is this a true curse from a young pharaoh who did not want to be disturbed after his physical death?

The latest document release from the federal government’s records on the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy is raising new questions about what contact the FBI had with suspect Lee Harvey Oswald before the shooting, and why officials claim Kennedy’s successor referred to his murder as “Justice.”
When Kennedy was shot in the head and killed while riding in a presidential motorcade in Dallas on Nov. 22, 1963, Oswald was named as the “lone-wolf” shooter. Despite the fact that the government insisted Oswald acted alone and his motive for the shooting was influenced by his Communist leanings, there have always been questions as to what might have influenced him.
Included in the latest release is a document dated nearly one month before the assassination, on Oct. 25, 1963. It is a memo from the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s New Orleans office, written by FBI Agent Warren de Brueys, which specifically mentions Oswald.
“Will maintain contact with Cuban sources for any indication of additional activity on the part of subject organization which appears to have become inactive since the departure from New Orleans of LEE HARVEY OSWALD.”
This memo is notable because it shows that either the FBI was aware of a threat posed by Oswald and it failed to initiate the proper surveillance in order to prevent a deadly shooting, or it was aware of a threat and it let the assassination happen.
The argument could be made by some that the failure was on the part of de Brueys, an FBI agent who promised to keep an eye on Oswald and failed. But it should be noted that after Kennedy’s assassination, de Brueys was actually promoted and tasked with a very important job.
Warren de Brueys was sent to Dallas in the days after the assassination and charged with “compiling a hefty early report on the investigation,” according to a report from the New Orleans Advocate.
The fact that the FBI used its New Orleans office to investigate pro- and anti-Cuban groups has led many to question whether there were ties between Oswald and de Brueys before the shooting. However, Jim de Brueys, son of the infamous FBI agent, told the Advocate that his father “was linked with everybody.”
While the documents from the latest release of Kennedy’s assassination records do not explicitly state that Oswald was recruited by the FBI, they do indicate a trend that has been ongoing for years, in which the FBI has prior contact with suspects who go on to become “lone wolf” assassins.
Another document detailed the deposition of former CIA Director Richard Helms, who was “called for examination by Counsel for Commission on CIA Activities” on April 23, 1975. The document ends with a crucial question from commission member David Belin:
Mr. Belin: Well, now, the final area of my internal investigation relates to charges that the CIA was in some way conspiratorially involved with the assassination of President Kennedy. During the time of the Warren Commission, you were Deputy Director of Plans, is that correct?
Mr. Helms: I believe so.
Mr. Belin: Is there any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy, which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent…
The document does not include Helms’ answer to Belin’s crucial question. However, it does include another comment from Helms that raises questions about Kennedy’s successor, Lyndon B. Johnson.
Helms was being questioned on the assassination of Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem, and whether the CIA was involved. He revealed that he was “not persuaded that President Nixon doesn’t still believe that the Agency didn’t have something to do with the demise” of Diem in 1963.
“The whole thing has been rather… heated by the fact that President Johnson used to go around saying that the reason President Kennedy was assassinated was that he had assassinated President Diem, and this was just justice,” Helms said.
However, as The Free Thought Project has reported, memos from Kennedy indicate that he was incredibly troubled by the assassination of Diem, and he used it as another reason to push for the United States to withdraw troops from Vietnam.
