How many files, documents and other pieces of evidence relevant to the JFK assassination have been misplaced, lost or destroyed?
It would be nice to have a list of such missing items.
Who was responsible for those items, who or what obscured them?The temple of Bel, 'ruined' by time over centuries, destroyed completely by tyrants on the last day of August 2015.
According to some experts this was because there should be no evidence of any reality beyond ISIL's world view.
