RFK Jr.: A Conspiracy Killed JFK
Robert Kennedy Jr. has announced that his uncle, President Kennedy, may not have been the victim of a lone assailant but rather that of a large conspiracy. To boot, Junior revealed that his father, who was also assassinated under questionable circumstances, privately believed that the Warren Commission report was a “shoddy piece of craftsmanship.”
Publicly, members of Camelot have remained rather quiet about the murder since it happened some five decades ago. But privately, some Kennedys have expressed the same doubts about certain areas of the JFK assassination as supposed conspiracy nuts, doubts that RFK Jr. has now shared with the rest of us…
RFK Jr. told Charlie Rose during a recent interview that most likely the killer was not a lone gunman. That, of course, goes against the Warren Commission report that singled out Lee Harvey Oswald as the perpetrator, and that ultimately decided he had acted alone. Like his father, Junior too questioned the report.
Investigators have pointed to many troubling aspects of the Commission’s findings as proof that a conspiracy was involved. For one thing, two of the three coroners involved in JFK’s autopsy had never conducted an autopsy on a shooting victim. It sure showed, as the coroners allegedly committed obvious mistakes, perhaps ruining any possibility we’ll ever be able to know how many bullets or gunmen killed Kennedy.
After his brother’s assassination, Robert F. Kennedy, Sr. expressed concerns that a conspiracy of mobsters might have been behind it. As the United States Attorney General, RFK was incredibly aggressive against organized crime and felt that his actions might have caused mobsters to target his brother.
Could this open the door to a new investigation into the Kennedy assassination? We wouldn’t be surprised…
