There is a big similarity in the way Trump and Modi were elected. Both were outsiders to a cozy system and were hated by the mainstream media. Trump had to take on a coherent deep state in Washington DC whereas PM Modi had to counter the Lutyens in the national capital. They were despised so much that they even had to withstand resistance from their own parties to emerge as consensus candidate. The same similarity has been attributed to some of their bold policies and off beat outlooks.
Both the deep state and the Lutyens have invariably ruled America and India respectively. They also have created their own eco systems which tailored any President or Prime minister accordingly to their whims and fancies. When Bill Clinton was campaigning to become the president, he had voiced his interest in declassifying Kennedy assassination files and find out answers to the most whodunit murder of the century. Nevertheless, after assuming presidency he had to curtail his ambitions and entail himself into the deep state and the military industrial complex.
Assassination of JFK had created a buzz around the perpetrators of the crime. JFK was shot at Dallas in 1963 and the killing was blamed upon a lone gunman named Lee Harey Oswald. Warren commission appointed to investigate the assassination concluded a fallacious lone gunman theory. Many polls taken in America thereafter have opined that JFK assassination had more than what meets the eye. Thereafter, a string of books, films and documentaries have been made on the assassination that has spanned decades but the answer refuses to go away. From domestic players like the CIA or the FBI and even somebody like the KGB have been accused of orchestrating the killing.
JFK became president under the climatic chaos of Bays of pigs fiasco. This episode encompassed the private army of the CIA planning to invade a communist Cuba which was a colossal failure as JFK refused to give support for the same. This is just one of the many conflicts JFK was facing in lieu with his relationship with the CIA, the deep state and the war machinery in the form of the military industrial complex. This necessarily created a perception that these elements within the CIA and a cabal within the American govt had somewhere conspired to take Kennedy out. A Church committee of US congress investigating CIA finally concluded in the 1970s that Kennedy may have been assassinated by a probable conspiracy. This had set the tongues wagging as secret files connected to JFK assassination are either destroyed or locked away to be declassified at a later date.
The possibility of the American establishment honchos such as CIA being involved in JFK assassination is a high probability and so perhaps no American president in office had the guts to declassify sensitive material. The entire argument in this aspect has been termed as ‘national security’. On the contrary, JFK assassination has uncanny resemblances in the way governmental agencies handled the death of Subhash Chandra Bose in India. Even the files pertaining to the Bose mystery has not been declassified under the pretext of the same ‘national security’ when Modi govt stepped in and has taken some steps in those directions to declassify it.
But it seems America is one step closer to knowing Who Killed Kennedy? As Trump readies himself to release the supposed documents on JFK, opinions are divided into those who believe this will give clarity to the tragedy. On the other hand, critics are highlighting this disclosure as nothing but a ploy by the president to divert attention.
As President Trump tweeted to indicate he had the necessary powers to unblock the files, opponents are claiming he is doing this to distract attention from the real issues. But there have been reports of the intelligence communities trying to pressurize the President in not releasing the information which has furthered possibilities of deep state complicity in the ill-famed assassination.
The long anticipated release of the #JFKFiles will take place tomorrow. So interesting!

Trump tweeted that the documents would be released comprising two sections. There will be files which the public has never seen and then there will be information which were previously released but with redacted format. There are said to be 3000 files each in both the categories.
Trump has the executive prowess to block the release of the documents on the grounds of the said national security reasons or harming foreign relations or sabotaging specific strategic interests.
There is an intense interest in lieu with the assassination of JFK, but these de classified documents may bring the necessary facts on to the table. North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones was instrumental in legislation that spearheaded this supposed disclosure. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, incorporated a piece of legislation urging President Donald Trump to comply with a measure passed in 1992, which required the National Archives to release remaining files regarding the incident within the next 25 years. That deadline is scheduled on Oct. 26.
CIA in the past has declassified documents where it has admitted being instrumental in toppling governments abroad to suit America’s strategic interests. The return of Shah in Iran 1953 is the best example where the CIA trained jackals instigated violence to topple a democratically elected govt as it was planning to nationalize oil. Unfortunately, in spite of being sensational, the mainstream media failed to put it into spotlight as the story deserved much more attention and discussions.
The declassification of JFK files however won’t go down without making a noise. It finally details the death of one of the America’s most beloved presidents. The mainstream media may go to sleep but alternative and the social media will be on the prowl regarding the same.
The conspiracy to assassinate JFK may not be exposed entirely on the 26th of October. Nevertheless, it will at least kick start the process to initiate a new investigation into that direction.
