Media representing the American Empire dismiss RFK Jr's conclusion.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Robert Kennedy Jr. revealed that he has come to the conclusion that Sirhan Sirhan did not kill his father, Robert Kennedy (RFK) at the Ambassador Hotel in June of 1968. RFK's assassination came on the heels of his brother John Kennedy's assassination in Dallas in 1963, and Martin Luther King's killing in Memphis in April of 1968. Serious researchers did not believe the official pronouncement regarding these three assassinations from the outset. While painstakingly revealing the discrepancies in the evidence over 50 years, mainstream media in America have served as Pravda for the CIA, clinging to the lone gunman theory in all three assassinations.

 

Over the years the Kennedy family has remained silent, frustrating the researchers who have proved without a shadow of a doubt that all three assassinations (as well as others) were conspiracies that originated at the highest levels of government. One theory for that silence is that the Kennedy family remained concerned for the safety of the extended family. Whether this should have been a realistic fear can be debated. It cannot be debated that John F Kennedy Jr, Michael L. Kennedy, and Kara Kennedy have all died young, while brother Ted Kennedy was set up for demonization at Chappaquiddick.

 

The purpose of the article is not to restate the mountains of evidence that demonstrates President John F. Kennedy was killed by the National Security State for refusing to authorize a first strike nuclear annihilation of the Soviet Union, for failing to support the failed Bay of Pigs invasion with a military response, and for negotiating America out of the Cuban Missile Crisis showdown with Cuba. See James Douglass's book JFK and the Unspeakable for that information.

 

Similarly, this is not the time to explain the reasons Martin Luther King was a threat to the National Security State as defined by J. Edgar Hoover, Richard Nixon, and the CIA in 1968. See William Pepper's great book The Plot to Kill King to understand that event.

 

This author cannot easily recap the mountains of evidence implicating the CIA in the string of political assassinations of the 1960's. See David Talbot's excellent book The Devil's Chessboard and Mark Lane's book Last Word: MY Indictment of the CIA in the Murder of JFK.

 

A brief recap of Robert Kennedy's assassination is in order. Bobby Kennedy had just won the Democratic California primary, declaring victory minutes before his death. That win cemented the fact that Bobby Kennedy would oppose Nixon in the Presidential contest in 1968, and thus marked him for death. The first problem was that there were a minimum of 13 shots fired in the pantry at the Ambassador Hotel, while Sirhan Sirhan's gun held 8 bullets*. This fact has since been proven scientifically based on an audio tape which can now be analyzed using modern computer technology. The second problem was that the CIA, while controlling the investigation, did not control the autopsy. Thomas Noguchi performed a professional autopsy which concluded that the fatal shot was fired from 1.5 inches away into his head above the ear. Sirhan Sirhan was approximately 6 feet in front of Kennedy but the fatal shot and a second shot struck Kennedy in the from behind. The ballistic tests were flawed in several ways. The gun of Thane Eugene Cesar, the “security” guard closed to Kennedy, was never tested. Other guns were drawn in that room but also were never tested. That is the much abbreviated version of Bobby Kennedy's assassination, leaving out the girl in the polka dot dress, the legal maneuvering needed to convict Sirhan, and the CIA assets that were put in charge of the investigation as employees of the LAPD. Nor does it include the interrogation of witness Susan Serrano, or the destruction of the video evidence taken by high school student journalist Scott Enyart.

 

Robert Kenndy was not the first antiwar Presidential candidate, but he was the last, with the exception of George McGovern. Kennedy was a threat because he to had no intention of continuing the conflict in Vietnam, but the bigger threat was that he could then investigate the assassination of his brother John. The early researchers had already taken a deep bite out of the credibility of the original story. Forces intent on expanding the American Empire could not allow one man to prevent the Vietnam conflict, which result in the violent deaths of 1,450,000 deaths in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

 

For the knowledgeable among us, let me include just one example of the the feeble efforts of the media in dismissing Robert Kennedy Jr's recent comments. The LA Times of course has been the leader in disinformation regarding the Bobby's tragic assassination.

 

The LA Times concludes it's article with: “Russell Iungerich, an attorney from Rancho Palos Verdes, worked as a deputy attorney general for the state of California when officials reopened the Kennedy case from 1975 to 1976. He said Robert Kennedy Jr.'s words did not have any merit.

"His comments are just way off base," Iungerich said. "When you add up all the evidence produced at the hearings, there's no way you can configure the evidence to say that there was a second gunman. RFK Jr. may believe this because he talked to Sirhan," he added, noting that Sirhan had worked as a groom at Hollywood Park and he was kicked in the head by a horse which created some brain damage "and he had some delusional thinking about RFK."

I suppose that is one rather childish way to discredit mountains of evidence that have been found and disseminated to the public over 50 years.  Among many great books on RFK's assassination, check out The Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy by William Turner and John Christian.  And look for Lisa Peace's new book A Lie Too Big to Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy , scheduled for release in November of 2018.
