Tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s ground breaking policy of space cooperation with the Soviet Union and plans for a joint mission to the moon. Kennedy released National Security Action Memorandum (NSAM) 271 on November 12, 1963, that required NASA’s administrator, James Webb, to share sensitive national security information with its equivalent Soviet space agency. More dramatic was another memorandum, allegedly authorized by Kennedy and issued the same day, that required the CIA Director, John McCone, to share classified UFO files with NASA, the State Department, and eventually the Soviet Union.
In a newly released Special Edition, ExoNews TV examines President John F. Kennedy’s ground breaking initiative to get the USSR and USA to cooperate in joint space and lunar missions. Historic film footage shows Kennedy’s startling overture to the Soviet Union at a UN Speech on September 20, 1963. This little known speech started the negotiation process that led to an agreement between Kennedy and Khrushchev that set in place the remarkable events nearly two months later. In the background of Kennedy’s publicly announced space cooperation initiative with powerful Cold War implications was a more secretive attempt to release classified UFO files. If Kennedy had succeeded, there would have been joint space missions to the moon and eventual public release of classified UFO files by both the US and USSR.
President Kennedy’s assassination, ten days after the launch of his historic November 12, 1963 space cooperation initiative, quickly led to the abandonment of his joint moon mission with the USSR. Kennedy’s alleged attempt to force the CIA to release classified UFO files, came to tragic end.
