Turns out, Robert Kennedy might actually *get it.*
This week, the 2024 presidential hopeful made a bold claim during an interview with John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable” that the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was involved in the assassination of his uncle, former President John F. Kennedy.
Kennedy asserted that the CIA was “beyond a reasonable doubt” involved in the murder and subsequent cover-up. He cited the book “JFK and the Unspeakable” by James Douglas as evidence supporting the theory of government involvement.
Of course, this theory has been vehemently denied by the CIA, with the agency calling it a “lie” on their official website. (Doth protest too much?) According to the Warren Commission Report, Lee Harvey Oswald, a former Marine and onetime defector to the Soviet Union, was responsible for assassinating President Kennedy. Oswald was charged with the killings of Kennedy and Dallas police officer J.D. Tippit but he was never tried due to being shot dead at the age of 24 on national television at the Dallas Police headquarters by nightclub owner Jack Ruby less than 48 hours after JFK’s assassination. (Which was totally not suspicious at all.)
President Joe Biden released about 98% of documents related to the assassination last year that the CIA and FBI fought to keep secret. The National Archives, which controls the classified information, claims that the remaining records are redacted in whole or in part to protect intelligence and law-enforcement informants from the era of the assassination who are still alive.
The 1992 John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act was designed to release all the documents, but the deep state continues to ignore this. The act catalyzed the release of files that suggested the CIA’s Mexico City station had surveilled Oswald when he visited Mexico City several weeks before the assassination and boasted he would kill Kennedy. That definitely indicated at least some complicity with the assassination if not full-on coordination, but the agency does not expect us to believe our own eyes. Every analysis suggests that if the CIA had acted with more speed when they surveilled Oswald in September and October 1963, they might have prevented the assassination.
Tucker Carlson, former Fox News host, claims that he spoke to a source with direct knowledge of the documents sealed in Kennedy’s assassination, alleging the CIA was involved. The source allegedly stated that the CIA did have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy, an American president.
“We spoke to someone who had access to these still hidden CIA documents, a person who was deeply familiar with what they contained,” Carlson said. “We asked this person directly, ‘Did the CIA have a hand in the murder of John F. Kennedy, an American president?’ “And here’s the reply we received verbatim…” Tucker teased.
“‘The answer is yes. I believe they were involved. It’s a whole different country from what we thought it was. It’s all fake.”
