IN AN interview with Charlie Rose, the son of Bobby Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., was blunt about his father’s thoughts on whether John F. Kennedy was killed by a lone gunman.
The interview coincides with the 50 year anniversary of J.F.K.’s assassination, which happened on November 22, 1963, later this year.
Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. talks about the philosophical path Bobby Kennedy took to try to understand the tragedy, as well as the deep doubts his father had about what had occurred and that his father never believed the Warren Commission’s open and shut case.
He said that he, too, questioned the report.
“The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman,” he said, but he didn’t say what he believed may have happened.
[…]Kennedy replied: “I think that’s true. He talked about that. He publicly supported the Warren Commission report but privately he was dismissive of it.”
He said his father had investigators do research into the assassination and found that phone records of Oswald and nightclub owner Jack Ruby, who killed Oswald two days after the president’s assassination, “were like an inventory” of mafia leaders the government had been investigating.
He said his father, later elected U.S. senator in New York, was “fairly convinced” that others were involved.
There’s been a concerted effort by elite media, most notably Chris Matthews, who has lauded and pushed the writing of Gerald Posner, while ignoring people like Mark Lane and many others, to ridicule anyone who doubts the Warren Commission findings.
We will never know for certain what happened on November 22, 1963, but the efforts to make the Warren Commission the last word have failed for a reason. It begins with the lack of transparency following Kennedy’s murder, which too many in the elite media have buttressed and made money on for years.
My one-woman show “Weeping for J.F.K.” in 2007 dealt with the assassination, because of how it impacted my older siblings, thus embedded in my consciousness and life what politics meant to people forever. I’ve done years and years of research on John F. Kennedy, never believing the Warren Commission’s investigation was thorough or honest and there are a lot of people who never will.
