AP Exclusive: Lost JFK assassination tapes on sale
A more complete version of the Air Force One tapes were long sought but never found, adding fuel to decades-old suspicions that there is more to Kennedy’s assassination than the official account naming Lee Harvey Oswald as the lone gunman.
The Assassination Records Review Board, created by an act of Congress in 1992 after the Oliver Stone film “JFK” caused public uproar to re-examine Kennedy’s killing, unsuccessfully sought the unedited Air Force One tapes for its probe. Its final report in 1998, the board said the LBJ Library version was filled with crude breaks and chopped conversations.
“That this tape even exists will change the way we view this great event in history,” Raab said. “It took decades to analyze the shorter, newer version and it will take years to do the same here.”
The Clifton tape has been professionally digitized and a copy is being donated by the Raab Collection to the National Archives and the John F. Kennedy Library so the public will have access to the material even if the original tape is sold to a private collector.
The wholly unedited “raw” recording of the entirety of the trip, which also would have included periods of silence and static, has never been located. It would have been roughly 4½ hours long.
