So even small events that preceded the murder, contained in the fresh batch of JFK files just published on the U.S. government’s site, take a sinister, prescient light.
A memo from the C.I.A.’s deputy director (Plans), James Angleton, refers to an anonymous phone call that senior reporter from local paper the Cambridge Evening News, received just 25 minutes before the president was shot.
According to the British security service, MI-5, says the caller “said only that the Cambridge News reporter should call the American embassy in London for some big news and then hung up.”
Really strange, isn’t it?
Here’s the whole memo if you want to plunge deep down into the conspiracy hole:
“The British security service (MI-5) has reported that at 18:05 GMT on 22nd November an anonymous telephone call was made in Cambridge, England, to the senior reporter of the Cambridge News.
“The caller said only that the Cambridge News reporter should call the American embassy in London for some big news and then hung up.
“After the word of the president’s death was received the reporter informed the Cambridge police of the anonymous call and the police informed MI-5.
“The important point is that the call was made according to MI-5 calculations, about 25 minutes before the president was shot. The Cambridge reporter had never received a call of this kind before and MI-5 state that he is known to them as a sound and loyal person with no security record.”
“MI-5 noted that similar anonymous phone calls of a strangely coincidental nature have been received by persons in the UK over the past year, particularly in connection with the case of Dr. Ward.”
“The British Security Service stated its desire to assist in every way possible on any follow-up investigations required within the United Kingdom.”
