People seem increasingly reluctant to start new threads, preferring instead to post items in the personal update section. To me this seems worthy of at least starting a new thread. If it fails due to lack of interest, then so be it. Personally, I am not much of a conspiracy theorist. To me, it is perfectly plausible that Oswald acted alone. Still, there have been so many conspiracy theories floated, that I am far from absolutely certain there was no broader conspiracy. There seems to have been a lot of very strange items of evidence which actually do point to some sort of conspiracy. In my mind they are not conclusive. However, neither have they been totally explained. At any rate, below is a link to a news story that has inspired this thread.
JFK assassination: Thousands of files released
(BBC) One memo revealed that the FBI had warned police of a death threat against the assassin Lee Harvey Oswald.
....As the documents are pored over and analysed, other findings include a CIA memo that suggests Oswald spoke with a KGB officer at the Russian embassy in Mexico City. The memo says the KGB officer Oswald spoke with worked for a department "responsible for sabotage and assassination".
Another memo showed that Soviet officials feared an "irresponsible general"would launch a missile at the USSR in the wake of President Kennedy's death.
...The records have been released on the National Archives website.
