Jacqueline Kennedy's Newly-Discovered Secret Letters

Jacqueline Kennedy's thoughts "about her marriage to President John F Kennedy, their life in the White House and her reaction to his assassination are revealed in newly discovered letters she wrote to an Irish priest before and after she became first lady of the United States," the Irish Times reports.

"In the previously unpublished letters, Jackie tells Father Leonard how Kennedy, who was then a rising star in American politics, was consumed by ambition 'like Macbeth'. In a letter sent in July 1952, she said her time with him had given her 'an amazing insight on politicians - they really are a breed apart.'"

"He's like my father in a way - loves the chase and is bored with the conquest - and once married needs proof he's still attractive, so flirts with other women and resents you. I saw how that nearly killed Mummy."
