Rare footage of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is apparently missing.

The granddaughter of the man who shot the Grassy Knoll footage is suing the U.S. government for $10 Million or its return.

The assassination of the 35th President of the United States was a turning point in history and the result of which is apparent today in the global war of terror. The whole world of conspiracies and their theoretical assumptions was born on 22nd November 1963 in Dallas, starting with: “was that a coups d’état that we just witnessed by the elite who want to dominate American policy?” to later assumptions on 9/11: “Is this a false flag we just witnessed and the start of the global war of terror- a global coups d’état?”

We might never know all the answers all the time, we might never know any answer at anytime, but we do sense when someone is fibbing. We now find out that one of the very few pieces of history captured on film has gone walkies from U.S. government care, and has been substituted with a fake one, the story of things since the assassination. If the conspiracy theorists are correct then American goodwill that was painstakingly but effortlessly accumulated over a long period of time prior to 22nd November 1963 was squandered to benefit a few of the Elite, who are now determined to profit from the global war of terror.

The Telegraph reports:

Orville Nix captured footage of the murder in Dallas on Nov 22, 1963 and would later declare that he believed shots came from the grassy knoll, rather than the Texas School Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald opened fire.

In 1963 Mr Nix sold the original footage to news agency UPI for $5,000 and a fedora hat, on the understanding it would be returned after 25 years.

He also gave a copy of the film to the FBI that was viewed by the Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination and concluded Oswald was the sole gunman.

However, Mr Nix later said the copy seen by the Warren Commission was different to the original film.

While a copy of the footage can be viewed at the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas the original is no longer with UPI, or in the National Archives.

According to court documents filed by his granddaughter Gayle Nix Jackson it has been missing since 1978 when it was in the possession of the House Select Committee on Assassinations, which also investigated the murder.

Mrs Nix Jackson is suing for the return of the original film or $10 million compensation.

The most famous film of the Kennedy assassination is the so-called “Zapruder film” shot by witness Abraham Zapruder. The US government bought that film from his heirs in 1999 for $16 million.

Mr Nix’s 8mm film was shot from the opposite side of the president’s limousine to Mr Zapruder’s and shows the grassy knoll.John F. Kennedy

According to Mrs Gayle Nix her grandfather “told us there was another gunman over there (on the grassy knoll). He said ‘I was right there. I know it.'”

She said: “It’s an important piece of historical evidence. I can understand little clerical issues. I don’t understand the loss of evidence like this.

“I hope that people who are unaware that the original Nix film is missing will take a stand and along with me, demand the government answer the unanswered questions.”
