Robert Kennedy Jr. Accuses CIA of Assassination
President John F. Kennedy passed away on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. While seated in a convertible-top presidential limousine, he was acknowledging the American citizens lining the street when an unexpected gunshot struck him. Approximately half an hour later, medical professionals at Parkland Memorial Hospital declared his death.
Over the years following the tragic incident, some individuals have harbored doubts regarding the narrative provided by law enforcement and the government regarding the president’s demise. Interestingly, even a relative from his own family finds the official account to be implausible.
During an interview on May 7, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. engaged in a conversation with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770, a New York City-based radio station. One of the topics discussed was the death of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy, and RFK Jr. expressed his belief that there exists substantial evidence pointing towards the CIA’s involvement in the assassination. He further asserted that the evidence establishes the guilt of the crime beyond any reasonable uncertainty.
According to RFK Jr., he holds the view that the CIA orchestrated JFK’s assassination due to his refusal to deploy American troops to Vietnam. He contends that while President Kennedy was in power, there were attempts by the military-industrial complex and intelligence agencies to coerce him into involving the United States in the war. However, Kennedy believed it was his responsibility to keep America out of the conflict.
On Monday, May 8, the Democratic contender made an appearance on Fox News, joining Sean Hannity in an in-depth conversation to expound upon his theory. He alleged the existence of a concealed truth regarding his uncle’s assassination, spanning a period of 60 years. Furthermore, he asserted that the Warren Commission, responsible for investigating the assassination, was under the control of Allen Dulles, the former director of the CIA whom President Kennedy had dismissed from his position.
Following the assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine, was accused of being the gunman who fired the shots that ended President JFK’s life. However, just two days later, Oswald himself was killed by Jack Ruby, a nightclub owner. Some allegations emerged suggesting that Oswald had connections to the CIA, although the intelligence agency has consistently denied any involvement or association with the alleged assassin.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations, which investigated President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, concluded that there was substantial scientific evidence indicating a high likelihood of two gunmen being involved in the shooting. Additionally, other pieces of evidence did not exclude the possibility of multiple gunmen firing at the presidential motorcade.
Furthermore, the committee unequivocally ruled out the involvement of any U.S. government agency, including the CIA and FBI, in the assassination. They also dismissed the notion of the Cuban and Russian governments having any role in the tragic event.
