RFK Jr Says CIA Assisted In JFK Assassination

Renowned author and Democrat candidate for United States President Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unloaded on the Central Intelligence Agency this weekend after he essentially accused the governmental organization of helping orchestrate the world-altering assassination of former President John F. Kennedy.

“They were definitely involved in the murder and the 60-year cover-up,” he declared Saturday while appearing as a guest on the “All In” podcast. “They’re still not releasing the papers that legally they have to release.”

“For anybody who has doubts about that, I would recommend a book by Jim Douglass called “JFK and The Unspeakable.” Because I think he’s done a better job than anybody else at kind of assembling and distilling all of the millions and millions of documents that have been released over the past 50 years. And these revelations are released incrementally, and so nobody really takes notice of them. But when you put them all together, the story is very clear.”

Kennedy has expressed similar opinions in the past, as was observed by his reaction to a report where former Fox News host Tucker Carlson claimed that a reliable source confirmed the CIA’s involvement in the killing.

“It’s one thing if you get struck by lightning – rare but possible,” Carlson stated near the beginning of his segment. “But if every member of your family also gets struck by lightning, all on different days, you might begin to suspect these are not entirely natural events.”

Kennedy reportedly shared Carlson’s now-famous segment in a now-deleted post he made on Twitter, commenting that it was “The most courageous newscast in 60 years.”

“The CIA’s murder of my uncle was a successful coup d’état from which are democracy has never recovered.”

As RedState noted, JFK’s life was taken away by a gunshot on Nov. 22 1963 as he appeared on a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. Following a probe by the Warren Commission, the U.S. government concluded that a man named Lee Harvey Oswald did the killing alone.

JFK’s nephew suggested that the former president’s hesitancy to engage in armed conflict around the globe is ultimately what earned him a position on the CIA hit list, alleging that the military-industrial complex was repeatedly urging him to wage war in Laos, Vietnam, and other places, only to have its requests rejected.
