Thread: RFK Jr. dissents

  1. Default RFK Jr. dissents

    RFK Jr. says he met with Sirhan and does not believe
    Sirhan shot his father. This is of relevance on the
    JFK site as well, since RFK Jr. is the most prominent
    Kennedy family member to express doubts about
    both official verdicts. It seems he may be writing
    a book about his father's murder, which would
    be valuable. This story appears in, of all places,
    the Washington Post, though it carefully avoids
    mentioning RFK's probable assassin, Thane Eugene (Gene) Cesar.
    The story quotes Dan Moldea, Cesar's protector and apologist,
    but does so skeptically.

    This is historic.

    Its the first time that a member of the Kennedy family has gone public with his or her doubts about the assassinations of the Kennedys in the sixties.

    And its already raising a mini ruckus in the press, not just print media, but on TV.

    Let us keep our fingers crossed.

    Yes, it is historic, but history shows that also puts a target on his back or forehead to die in a 'crash', 'accident', 'suicide' or other such......

    Actually, RFK Jr. dissented from the official view during a live event with Charlie Rose hosting
    in Dallas in 2013. Why it was not televised was not stated, although we can well imagine. From INTO THE NIGHTMARE:

    In a notable exception to that overall record [of Kennedy family public acquiescence in the coverup], and one that might hold promise for a more engaged future response from at least some members of the Kennedy family, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., criticized the Warren Report in January 2013, saying that his father also considered it a “shoddy piece of craftsmanship.” RFK, Jr., who has made his own mark as an environmental activist and investigative journalist, made his comments in a live public appearance in Dallas with television personality Charlie Rose. The Associated Press reported:
    “The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman,” [Kennedy] said, but he didn’t say what he believed may have happened.
    Rose asked if he believed his father, the U.S. attorney general at thetime of his brother’s death, felt “some sense of guilt because he thought there might have been a link between his very aggressive efforts against organized crime [and the assassination].”
    Kennedy replied: “I think that’s true. He talked about that. He publicly supported the Warren Commission report but privately he wasdismissive of it.”

    *****

    And as readers here will know, RFK Sr. and Jacqueline Kennedy a week after
    the assassination sent word to the USSR leadership via William Walton in Moscow that
    they knew the USSR and Cuba were not involved in the assassination but
    that it was a domestic rightwing conspiracy. JFK's good friend Walton was on a preplanned
    trip to Moscow to make arrangements for joint meetings between Soviet and US artists. Too bad RFK and Jackie didn't go public
    at the time with that. It came out long afterward.

    I am loving that the lamestream media is having to deal with this story. Bet Rachel Maddow ignores it. Will he get on any tv shows? I doubt it. That's a bridge too far for mockingbird media.

    Great review. I hope the public and word of mouth pick up on the qualities of the book.

    Well the cat is out of the bag for the Public [although many of we researchers have known this in detail for many decades] - that there was a war between the covert action arm of the CIA [the main part of that Agency] and the Kennedys...... Now, can they 'go there' to where they examine the overwhelming evidence that the covert action arm of CIA [along with some pals of theirs] had the major role in the death of two [make that three] Kennedys and the contrived scandal of another.....
