The infamous “Jackie O tapes,” which were recorded by historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. months after President John F. Kennedy’s assassination on Nov. 22, 1963, will soon be revealed to the public. Jacqueline Onassis reportedly believed that Lyndon Johnson and a “cabal of Texas tycoons” were responsible for Kennedy’s death.

Jackie O suspected conspiracy

The Daily Mail reports that the Jackie O tapes will clearly show her suspicion of President Kennedy’s successor. Onassis, who went on to marry Greek shipping tycoon Aristotle Onassis, was convinced that then Vice President Lyndon Johnson and a group of southern U.S. businessmen orchestrated Kennedy’s assassination in Dallas, Texas. In Jackie O’s estimation, suspected lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald was part of a larger conspiracy.

According to the Daily Mail, Jackie Onassis had ordered that the tapes not be released until 50 years after her death. While the reasons for this aren’t entirely clear, it is believed that she feared her revelations would make her family targets for revenge.

Daughter Caroline Kennedy agreed to early release

Just 17 years after Jackie O’s death from cancer when she was 64, daughter Caroline Kennedy has agreed to release the Jackie O tapes. ABC has cemented plans and the BBC are currently in negotiations to air television programs regarding the tapes. ABC executives are touting her recorded statements as being “explosive.”

A major condition of the release is that ABC would not air its dramatic series about the Kennedy family in which Katie Holmes plays Jacqueline Onassis. Against Caroline’s wishes, some episodes of the series aired on an independent cable channel and on BBC2 in the U.K.

From affairs to renewed faith

In addition to her opinions regarding LBJ and the John F. Kennedy assassination, Jackie Onassis allegedly reveals her knowledge that President Kennedy had an affair with a 19-year-old White House intern. Jackie O confesses to her own extramarital affairs – corroborated by biographer Edward Klein – with such men as film actor William Holden and Fiat automobile founder Gianni Agnelli. Despite the infidelity, insiders claim that Jacqueline and John had “turned a corner” and were planning to have more children mere months before Kennedy’s assassination.
