JFK Papers Released

Well, I know what I’m doing for the next few days

Thousands of documents from the Kennedy have just been released.One of the documents included a transcript of a Nov. 24, 1963, conversation with then-FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. The conversation describes a threat against Lee Harvey Oswald, the gunman suspected of assassinating the President Kennedy. Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby, a Dallas nightclub owner on Nov. 24, 1963.

“There is nothing further on the Oswald case except that he is dead. Last night, we received a call in our Dallas office from a man talking in a calm voice and saying he was a member of a committee organized to kill Oswald.”

He described how they called the chief of police that night and again the next morning. “He again assured us adequate protection would be given. However, this was not done,” Hoover said.

When Oswald died, Hoover said, “We had an agent at the hospital in the hope that he might make some kind of a confession before he died, but he did not do so.”
