An uncovered letter written by John F Kennedy to the head of the CIA shows that the president demanded to be shown highly confidential documents about UFOs 10 days before his assassination.

The secret memo is one of two letters written by JFK asking for information about the paranormal on November 12 1963, which have been released by the CIA for the first time.

The president’s interest in UFOs shortly before his death is likely to fuel conspiracy theories about his assassination.

Conspiracy theorist say the CIA documents help verify a previously discovered letter in which the director of the CIA reportedly wrote that JFK has ‘made some inquiries regarding our activities, which we cannot allow’.

The letter was apparently received by a UFO investigator in 1999, but has never been verified.

Alien researchers say the latest documents add weight to the suggestion that the president could have been shot to stop him discovering the truth about UFOs.

In one of the secret documents released by the CIA, JFK writes to the director asking for the UFO files.

In the second memo, sent to the NASA administrator, the president expresses a desire for cooperation with the former Soviet Union on mutual outer space activities.

The previously classified documents were released under the Freedom of Information Act to history teacher William Lester as part of research for a new book on JFK.

He said that JFK’s interest in UFOs could have been fuelled by concerns about relations with the former Soviet Union.

‘One of his concerns was that a lot of these UFOs were being seen over the Soviet Union and he was very concerned that the Soviets might misinterpret these UFOs as U.S. aggression, believing that it was some of our technology,’ Mr Lester told AOL News.

‘I think this is one of the reasons why he wanted to get his hands on this information and get it away from the jurisdiction of NASA so he could say to the Soviets, “Look, that’s not us, we’re not doing it, we’re not being provocative. “.’

But conspiracy theorists said the documents add interest to the disputed file, nicknamed the ‘burned memo’.

In one of the secret documents released under the Freedom of Information Act, JFK writes to the director asking for the UFO files.
