A new book on UFOs and U.S. Presidents has created quite a stir with sensational headlines about an alien connection to the JFK assassination by several mainstream U.S. news media sources. The New York Post led the charge on March 22 with the headline: “Aliens killed Kennedy! And other wild tales of UFOs vs. the USA.” The Business Standard followed up today with the headline: “Aliens planned John F. Kennedy’s assassination, claims author.” So did space aliens really kill President Kennedy?
The headlines derive from Larry Holcombe’s new book, The Presidents and UFOs: A Secret History from FDR to Obama. In it Holcomb covers the history of how U.S. Presidents have responded to the UFO issue. Holcomb cites a number of FOIA documents and leaked “Majestic” documents in presenting his history. The chapter on President Kennedy is what got mainstream media attention. Here is how the New York Post summarized Holcombe’s views:
Holcombe cites a classified CIA communication from the Kennedy era that reads, in part, “when conditions become nonconductive for growth in our environment and Washington cannot be influenced any further . . . it should be ‘wet.’ ” Since “wet” was Soviet code for “assassination,” Holcombe thinks this could be CIA code for a plot to kill Kennedy. Why? He was considering telling the world that aliens existed, of course.
The classified CIA document is known among UFO researchers as the “Burned Memo”, and has generated much interest since first made available by Dr Robert Wood and Ryan Wood on their Majestic.com website. The “Burned Memo” does indicate that a mysterious committee called the MJ-12 Special Studies group was setting policy on how to respond to President Kennedy’s efforts to get access to classified UFOs. The “Burned Memo” contains eight directives – the last of which was an assassination directive called “Project Environment.”
The 2013 book, Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFK’s Assassination goes into length about the membership of MJ-12 and the timeline behind the drafting of the Burned Memo. Kennedy’s Last Stand asserts that the CIA’s head of counterintelligence, James Jesus Angleton, orchestrated the JFK assassination on behalf of the directives issued by the MJ-12 Group. Kennedy’s Last Stand identifies the most likely members of the MJ-12 committee at the time the Burned Memo was drafted. All were prominent military and civilian officials – none of whom appeared to be space aliens. So the New York Post article doesn’t appear to be correct in making the case that space aliens were responsible for Kennedy’s assassination.
However, before dismissing any alien involvement in the Kennedy assassination, one needs to consider the full implications of what President Obama said on March 12 on Jimmy Kimmel Live. In response to Kimmel’s question about how he would seek to gain access to UFO files and Area 51 if he were president, Obama said:
The aliens won’t let it happen. You’d reveal all their secrets. They exercise strict control over us.
While Obama’s comments were widely interpreted as a joke by most mainstream media, it’s important to mention that only a month earlier, John Podesta, Obama’s counselor for energy policy and the environment said that his biggest failure for 2014 was: “Once again not securing the #disclosure of the UFO files.”
Podesta’s frank admission of failure was interpreted as evidence that there exist powerful government and/or corporate forces enforcing UFO secrecy. Obama’s comments on Jimmy Kimmel Live raises another possibility. Space aliens themselves, at least some of them, play a key role in maintaining UFO secrecy.
Podesta’s frustration over the inability of the Obama administration to gain access to classified UFO files was almost certainly shared by President Obama. Podesta’s statement now makes clear the full context of Obama’s space alien comments on Jimmy Kimmel live. His comment that space aliens “exercise strict control over us” was no joke. He was making an important admission about who was ultimately in control when it comes to gaining access to classified UFO files.
If space aliens were responsible for blocking the Obama’s administration’s access to classified UFO then it stands to reason that they played a similar role during the Kennedy administration. Kennedy’s interest in UFO files started during World War 2 when he witnessed captured Nazi technologies, some of which were UFOs, is discussed in Kennedy’s Last Stand. A new Kickstarter film project that goes into more detail on Kennedy’s knowledge of Nazi UFOs, reverse engineering captured UFOs and alien life is planned to be released on Nov 22, the 52nd anniversary of the JFK assassination.
The New York Post and Business Standard headlines on aliens and the JFK assassination may appear to be outlandish. Yet when one examines all the available evidence on President Kennedy’s knowledge of classified UFOs and Obama’s recent comments, it may not be that outlandish after all. Space aliens, at least some of them, may have played a key role in the Kennedy Assassination.

The upcoming 51st anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination and its connection to classified UFO files is discussed in a new video released by Third Phase of Phase on November 6. The video, “UFO Sightings MJ-12: The Presidents Last Stand,” proposes the general public is opening up for the first time to the possibility that Kennedy had a genuine interest in UFOs and that this played a role in his assassination. Using historic documents – both those released through the Freedom of Information Act and those leaked unofficially by whistleblowers – it is proposed that Kennedy tried a number of different initiatives to gain access to classified UFO files. With a subscriber base of almost 200,000, the Third Phase of Moon video introduces a radical new perspective on the Kennedy Assassination to the US and world public.
The Third Phase of Moon video uses a combination of new film footage taken on the Big Island of Hawaii with the writer wherein my 2013 book, Kennedy’s Last Stand is discussed, and archived footage of a 2009 lecture wherein documents concerning Kennedy’s efforts to gain access to classified UFO files are discussed. The video begins by discussing President Kennedy’s experiences in Post War Germany where he was a guest of the U.S. Secretary of Navy, James Forrestal, and toured captured Nazi UFO technologies. Kennedy’s war time knowledge of UFOs played a key role in his interest in gaining access to classified UFO files closely safeguarded by the CIA’s counter intelligence division, and a secretive organization called Majestic-12.
Kennedy’s efforts to do an end run against the CIA’s refusal to share classified UFO files is discussed, along with his efforts to gain access using his Commander in Chief powers when visiting U.S. military facilities. It is claimed that Kennedy shared some of the UFO secrets he had discovered with Marilyn Monroe. Monroe’s estrangement from Kennedy and attempt to reveal his UFO secrets through a planned Press Conference, is claimed to have played a direct role in her August 1962 death.
The Third Phase of Moon video finishes with Kennedy’s historic September 20, 1963 initiative announced at the United Nations General Assembly to collaborate with the Soviet Union in joint space and lunar missions. It is proposed that Kennedy’s space cooperation initiative was driven by a desire to have classified UFO files shared between the respective bureaucracies of the US and USSR. This would have eventually ensured direct Presidential access to classified UFO files and programs. When it became clear on 12 November 1963 – after Soviet Premier Khrushchev finally accepted Kennedy’s space cooperation initiative – that Kennedy might succeed, a secret assassination directive called “Project Environment,” was implemented by the head of the CIA’s counter intelligence division. Ten days later, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.
- Robert Kennedy concluded rogue CIA assassinated President Kennedy
- More CIA documents confirm validity of leaked Monroe JFK UFO document
- Kennedy’s Last Stand: Roots of JFK Assassination lie in what he saw in 1945
Just before beginning his first term on January 20, 1993, President-Elect Clinton made a very strange request to close family friend and lawyer Webster Hubbell: “If I put you over there in justice I want you to find the answer to two questions for me: One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs.” According to Hubbell, “Clinton was dead serious.”
The key to unlocking the mystery of President Kennedy’s assassination and a possible UFO connection lie in events that occurred 18 years earlier in post-war Germany. In 1945 John F. Kennedy was a guest of Navy Secretary James Forrestal, where he personally witnessed technological secrets that have still not been disclosed to the world. These secrets stemmed from extraterrestrial technologies that Nazi Germany had acquired and were attempting to use in their weapons programs. In searching for answers to who killed President Kennedy we need to start with the death of his mentor, James Forrestal in 1949. Forrestal became the first Secretary of Defense in 1947, a position he held until March, 1949.

There have been many reasons for the murder of JFK proposed by numerous researchers, however for myself, they didnt make sense. Everything that Kennedy supposedly did to aggravate various groups who likely were complicit in the murder could have easily been undone. Why the extraordinary spectacle of a public execution by multiple shooters? Finally, after 50 years, a book was published that I feel gives the real reason President Kennedy was murdered. The book is called Kennedys Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFKs Assassination. The conclusion is simple: President Kennedy wanted to reveal to the world the existence of extra-terrestrials, their technology and the fact the government had contact with them. The book by Dr. Michael E. Salla provides documentation that it was this quest by President Kennedy that got him murdered.

Michael Sallas books have in common clarity, methodical progression and persuasive argumentation, all intended to convince an uninformed readership of a thesis that is far from easy to accept. His latest work is no exception. In it Salla focuses on one main topic: the alleged connection between the assassination of President John F Kennedy and his documented attempts to gain knowledge about and disclose the extraterrestrial factor responsible for the UFO issue, all against the will of a powerful secret para-governmental Cabal that controlled and still appears to control that elusive area of scientific research and technological development.
Come Carpentier de Gourdon, Convenor of the Editorial Board, World Affairs Journal (
[C]ongratulations to Dr. Michael Salla in moving our knowledge of JFK and his role in the deeper history of our time further along in such a courageous and coherent manner. There are many indications that the CIA has waned in its influence in the last couple of decades, though its power may have been supplanted by units within the nether regions of the Pentagon and/or other agencies, including the Mossad. Nevertheless, Dr. Sallas book Kennedys Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 & JFKs Assassination is a must-read in furthering our understanding of these tremendously important themes and events. The human drama set in motion in Dealey Plaza is far from over.

Robert Kennedy, the former Attorney General, conducted his own private investigation of his brother’s murder fifty years ago, and reached a startling conclusion. The assassination was conducted by a rogue faction of the CIA. Despite his power as Attorney General, Kennedy was unable to expose the killers and ultimately suffered a similar fate almost five years later during the 1968 Presidential elections.
Robert Kennedy’s conclusion was revealed for the first time by his son in an interview by Charlie Rose on January 11, 2013 in Dallas, Texas. Robert Kennedy, Jnr., when asked whether his father believed it was the Mafia, or Cuban exiles that assassinated his uncle, responded as follows:
KENNEDY: I think my father was fairly convinced at the end of that that there had been involvement by somebody …
ROSE: Organized crime, Cubans …
KENNEDY: Or rogue CIA …
So who was behind this “rogue” CIA faction, and was it truly acting alone?
According to the final installment of a four part Special Edition series from ExoNews TV, the rogue CIA faction was in fact controlled by the CIA’s counterintelligence chief, James Jesus Angleton. Angleton was following a secret set of directives given to him by a classified UFO control group called Majestic-12, in case anyone in the Kennedy administration threatened to expose their operations.
President Kennedy’s 1963 efforts to end the Cold War, cooperate with the USSR on joint space missions, and share classified UFO files with the Soviets, created a showdown with Majestic-12. The trigger was Kennedy’s agreement with Soviet Premier, Nikita Khrushchev, on November 12, 1963 on space and lunar cooperation. The agreement led to Kennedy issuing a Top Secret memo the same day instructing John McCone, the CIA Director, to share the CIA’s classified UFO information with NASA, which in turn would share the information with the State Department, other government agencies, and eventually the Soviets.
Kennedy’s explosive Top Secret memo to McCone was relayed by William Colby, then Chief of the CIA’s Far East Division, to James Angleton in CIA counterintelligence. In response to Kennedy’s memo, Angleton would implement “Project Environment”, a cryptic assassination directive crafted by former CIA Director, Allen Dulles, in late 1961, if Majestic-12 operations were threatened with exposure. The trigger for implementing the directive was a demand by the Kennedy administration for the CIA to release its classified UFO files to NASA.
Robert Kennedy’s startling conclusion from his own private investigation of his brother’s murder is a powerful endorsement of evidence that a powerful “rogue” faction from the CIA was responsible. The fourth and final segment of the ExoNews TV Special Edition series clearly identifies the “rogue” CIA faction, the key people authorizing its activities, and who was ultimately responsible for the assassination of President Kennedy.

Part 1. Kennedy’s Last Stand
Just before the start of his first term on January 20, 1993, President-Elect Clinton made a strange request to close family friend and lawyer Webster Hubbell: “If I put you over there in justice I want you to find the answer to two questions for me: One, who killed JFK. And two, are there UFOs.” According to Hubbell, “Clinton was dead serious.” The key to unlocking the mystery of President Kennedy’s assassination and a possible UFO connection lie in events that occurred 18 years earlier in post-war Germany.
In the summer of 1945, John F. Kennedy was a guest of Navy Secretary James Forrestal in a post-war tour of Germany. Kennedy personally witnessed technological secrets that have still not been disclosed to the general public. These secrets stemmed from technologies that Nazi Germany had acquired from around the world, and were attempting to develop for their weapons programs. The advanced technologies stunned the military government running the U.S. zone of occupied Germany. How did the Nazis develop them? The answer according to the father of German rocket design, Herman Oberth, shocked U.S. military officials. The Nazis had help from “the people of others worlds” – some of the technologies were extraterrestrial in origin.
In searching for answers to who killed President Kennedy we need to start with the death of his mentor, James Forrestal in 1949. Forrestal became the first Secretary of Defense in 1947, a position he held until March, 1949. Forrestal was a visionary who thought Americans had a right to know about the existence of extraterrestrial life and technologies. Forrestal was sacked by President Truman because he was revealing the truth to various officials, including Kennedy who was a Congressman at the time. Forrestal’s ideals and vision inspired Kennedy, and laid the seed for what would happen 12 years later.
After winning the 1960 Presidential election, Kennedy learned a shocking truth from President Eisenhower. The control group set up to run highly classified extraterrestrial technologies, Majestic-12, had become a rogue government agency. Eisenhower warned Kennedy that Majestic-12 had to be reined in. It posed a direct threat to American liberties and democratic processes. Kennedy followed Eisenhower’s advice, and set out to realize James Forrestal’s vision. The same forces that orchestrated Forrestal’s death, opposed Kennedy’s efforts at every turn. When Kennedy was on the verge of succeeding, by forcing the CIA to share classified UFO information with other government agencies on November 12, 1963, he was assassinated ten days later.
Kennedy’s Last Stand is a book about how two American Presidents, Eisenhower and Kennedy, confronted “black world” operations outside of the control of “white world” constitutional government representatives. Kennedy’s Last Stand reveals how JFK tried to realize his friend’s and mentor’s vision of a world where humanity openly knows about extraterrestrial life. The book reveals for the first time, the principal government officials responsible for denying that vision, and orchestrating the assassination of President Kennedy.
Kennedy’s Last Stand: Eisenhower, UFOs, MJ-12 and JFK’s Assassination by Michael E. Salla, Ph.D., becomes available at Amazon on October 22, 2013 – one month before the 50th anniversary of the JFK Assassination.
