In this day and age, conspiracy theories appear to be making major headways into mainstream society – a fact that has caused a great deal of concern among the establishment media. That’s likely on account of the fact that these hypotheses are growing more prevalent and injecting themselves into nearly every facet of our lives. Everything from the coronavirus to the 2020 election has some sort of wild theory hovering over the chaos, with some being far more outlandish than ever before.
Heck, there’s even a very well-documented theory that Mattress Firm isn’t a mattress store at all, but rather a front for a massive, clandestine black market force.
Of course, there would be no modern day conspiracy community without the events surrounding the assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr., and the subsequent death of Lee Harvey Oswald while in police, custody.
Now, an ex-member of the CIA is dropping a wild bombshell regarding that particular case.

Lee Harvey Oswald was instructed to kill John F. Kennedy by Soviet leader Nikita Kruschev, a former CIA chief has claimed, and went ahead with the plan despite the Soviets changing their mind.
R. James Woolsey, who ran the CIA from 1993-1995, makes the remarkable claim in a new book, Operation Dragon.
Written with Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa, a former acting chief of Nicolae Ceausescu’s espionage service, the book claims that Oswald, who defected to Russia in 1959 and moved back to the U.S in 1961, was a KGB associate on a mission from Moscow.
Woolsey, 79, and Pacepa, who died of COVID-19 on February 14, aged 92, base their claim on a new interpretation of already-published material.
The CIA has long been suspected as having been a part of the assassination plot, which gives this new theory all the integrity of asking a child with crumbs all over their face if they’ve had their hands in the cookie jar.
