JFK 'was murdered by CIA after demanding spooks release top secret UFO files'
The president sent a letter to the head of the CIA only 10 days before he was killed, it is claimed
President John F Kennedy was murdered by the CIA after demanding the agency release top secret UFO files, it has been claimed.
Kennedy was infamously shot dead while travelling in an open-topped car through the centre of Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.
His death sent shockwaves around the world and has spawned dozens of conspiracy theories.
But in perhaps the most spectacular revelation to date, UFO expert Scott C Waring claims the president sent a letter to the head of the CIA only 10 days before he was killed.
Copies of the letter were posted by Waring on his website, UFO Sightings Daily.
He said the president also visited Nasa's base at Cape Canaveral in Florida four days after sending the memo, the Daily Star reports .
In the letter JFK apparently asks for the CIA to detail everything it knows about UFO sightings.
The letter said: "It would be very helpful if you would have the high threat cases reviewed with the purpose of identification of bona fide as opposed to classified CIA and USAF sources.
"It is important that we make a clear distinction between the knowns and unknowns in the event the Soviets try to mistake our extended cooperation as a cover for intelligence gathering of their defence and space programs.
"I would like you to arrange a program of data sharing with NASA where unknowns are a factor."
The president is also claimed to have sent a letter to Nasa requesting that the agency cooperate with the Soviets on the issue of UFOs.
Waring suggests JFK was worried the Soviets might mistake UFOs over Russia for spy planes.
Mr Waring called into question presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's promise to make public all US government papers on UFOs.

He wrote: "Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton doesn't know it yet, but she does not have the power to release such information. "CIA would kill her before she could, just like they did JFK.
"Hillary will be too scared of the CIA to release such information."
