Secret recordings containing explosive details about who was behind the assassination of former U.S. President John F. Kennedy or spicy details about the love life of his former wife, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, will be released this fall.
Audio documents have been made by a famous American historian, Arthur Schlesinger Jr. M, few months after JFK’s death, on 22 November 1963. The documents were sealed until now in a hidden safe of Kennedy Library in Boston.
Recordings will unveil her version about the assassination of JFK and show that she strongly believes that former U.S. President was assassinated at the Vice President, Lyndon B Johnson, and several businessmen, who had interests in the Vietnam War and Bano oil contracts, command. Lyndon B Johnson became the successor of the former U.S. leader.
“She became convinced that the then vice president, along with several businessmen in the South, had orchestrated the Dallas shooting, with gunman Lee Harvey Oswald – long claimed to have been a lone assassin – merely part of a much larger conspiracy,” wrote The Daily Mail.
Lyndon B Johnson (LBJ) was a Texas-born and served as the state’s governor and senator, completed JFK’s term and went on to be elected president in his own right.
Jackie Kennedy, who eventually married to Greek shipping tycoon, Aristotle Onassis, had ordered that recordings should not be released until 50 years after her death, with some reports suggesting she feared that her revelations might make her family targets for revenge.
The former First Lady died 17 years ago from cancer, aged 64, and now her daughter, Caroline Kennedy’s agreed to release the recordings early,although the term required by Jackie O. would accomplish in 2044.[googlead tip=”vertical_mic”]
The tapes will be aired by U.S. network ABC, and the British broadcasters are in talks to show it in UK too.
ABC executives said the tapes’ revelations were “explosive”.
The secret recordings are believed to include the suggestion that JFK was having an affair with a 19-year-old White House intern, with Jackie Kennedy even claiming that she found knickers in their bedroom.[googlead tip=”lista_mica” aliniat=”stanga”]
And they go on to reveal that she too had affairs. The first one was with the Hollywood star William Holden, and the other one with Gianni Agnelli, the Fiat founder – as a result of the president’s indiscretions. It has also been claimed that, in the weeks before former president Kennedy’s assassination, the couple had turned a corner in their relationship and were planning to have more children.
According to the historian Edward Klein, who has written several books on the Kennedy family,[googlead tip=”patrat_mic” aliniat=”dreapta”]
“Jackie regarded the pretty young things in the White House as superficial flings for Jack. She did retaliate by having her own affairs. “
“There was a period during which she was delighted to be able to annoy her husband with her own illicit romances.”
It is also believed that Caroline Kennedy, 53, agreed to the early release of the tapes in exchange for ABC dropping its $20 million the “The Kennedys”drama miniseries.
“The Kennedys”, starring Tom Cruise’s wife Katie Holmes as Jackie, critically charted the family’s political and personal trials and tribulations since the 1930s. The series was eventually broadcast on an independent cable channel, and on BBC2 in the UK, against Caroline Kennedy’s wishes.
