‘The CIA Killed JFK’
In the nearly 60 years since the assassination of 35th US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy (May 29, 1917 – November 22, 1963), there have been many who pointed an accusing finger at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), alleging that the spy agency was involved in both the murder and the ensuing cover-up. Yet documents which were thought to shed some light on this have remained classified.
The discussion has now been reopened by JFK’s nephew, Robert Francis Kennedy Jr, with profound implications, not merely as a member of the Kennedy family, but as a Presidential Candidate of the Democratic Party. He raised the issue at a moment when trust in the intelligence community is at a low point.
In an interview on WABC radio on May 7, RFK Jr charged: “There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it is beyond a reasonable doubt.” He stressed that the CIA was involved in the cover-up that followed. A day later, he elaborated during the Hannity Show on Fox News, claiming that the first call his father, Robert F Kennedy Sr – the president’s brother and the then Attorney General of the US – made after being informed of the assassination, was to the CIA. He asked the desk officer: “Did your people do this?” Later, he spoke with CIA Director John McCone, and asked the same question. RFK Jr said: “It was my father’s first instinct that the agency had killed his brother.“
Following this revelation, Ray McGovern, a 27-year veteran analyst in the CIA, was interviewed by Judge Andrew Napolitano, whose Judging Freedom podcast has a large audience. McGovern expressed his anger that all the US Presidents have been afraid to release the documents on the November 22, 1963 assassination. Napolitano responded that he had asked former President Donald Trump why he had not fulfilled his promise to declassify the documents. Trump’s answer was: “Judge, if you saw what I have seen, you would understand why I could never release those documents.“
While telling this story during the LaRouche Organisation‘s weekly Manhattan Project meeting on May 13 (2023), McGovern stated that his immediate response was “Who the hell is running this country?” You don’t have to be a “conspiracy theorist“, he added, to see that the reluctance to release the documents was “a little suspicious“. McGovern, then, reviewed CIA operations from the 1950s till date, concluding with the fake intelligence used to justify the US-NATO War against Russia in Ukraine, or the failure to stop the sabotage of the Nord Stream pipelines.
“My bottom line now”, he said, “is that you need to dis-establish the whole Central Intelligence, the whole national intelligence set-up“. He joined with others at the event in saying that the statements issued by RFK Jr provide an opening to get to the broader truth about the JFK assassination, which should have been done years ago. Despite attempts by mainstream media to dismiss Kennedy’s Presidential campaign, he has reached 19% in recent polls. This makes it likely that not only the matter of the JFK assassination will become an issue in the 2024 Presidential Election, but the backing of coups, assassinations and wars by western intelligence agencies will be a legitimate focus of popular attention.
