Note: One of the JFK documents that was released in 1997 is the stunning revelation of a very real U.S. government conspiracy called Operation Northwoods.
Dr. Jerry Kroth, an Associate Professor Emeritus from Santa Clara University in California, combed through the recently released JFK assassination documents and found something curious — two U.S. soldiers had separately overheard plans to assassinate President Kennedy and were committed to mental institutions for reporting what they'd heard. The two soldiers were Private First Class Eugene V. Dinkin and Sergeant David Christensen.
