Skip to comments.The Teddy Files: Even Worse Than You Thought!

After repeated attempts, Judicial Watch has managed to pry loose certain documents relating to Teddy Kennedy from the FBI. The FBI's original redactions plainly had nothing to do with national security, so the agency apparently was trying to protect Kennedy's reputation.
The most entertaining documents relate to a trip Kennedy took to Latin America in 1961. He visited a number of countries, accompanied by his "political counselor." In each country, Kennedy met with prominent Communists or other left-wing leaders. The U.S. Ambassador to Mexico was outraged that Kennedy wanted to bring such people to the embassy--this was the heart of the Cold War, after all--and he refused, telling Kennedy to arrange his own interviews somewhere else. A State Department official in Peru described Teddy as "pompous and a spoiled brat."
In Colombia, the first person Kennedy wanted to meet with was Lauchlin Currie, a Russian spy who served as a key aide to Franklin Roosevelt, then moved to Colombia and renounced his American citizenship.
By the time he got to Chile, Kennedy apparently was tired of political work, so he "made arrangements to 'rent' a brothel for an entire night" in Santiago. You can read the FBI reports here. Here is one of them; click to enlarge:
The year after his Latin American tour, Kennedy entered the United States Senate. It is quite remarkable: the Kennedy that emerges from the FBI reports sounds like a right-winger's cartoon fantasy of the man. However bad you thought Ted Kennedy was, he was worse!
It’s very telling that this was a report on soon to be Senator Ted Kennedy written up for his older brothers. Just wow!
"tsk tsk*.."the swimmer,who needed permission from the harbor master to take a dip, had more skeletons in his closet than Vincent Price. Can't wait for the Russian correspondence to be released"
Ted Kennedy was a traitor to the United States. He worked with the Soviets against the United States during the Cold War in order to undermine President Reagan. He is a disgrace. This report is no suprise.
Teddy Kennedy, always the sleaze you thought he was.
Teddy was just another bubble-brained, irresponsible and shallow Liberal. I think he learned everything he knew from his two brothers.
It is pretty well known he had a serious drug dependency.
Probably just the tip of that iceberg.
Not really sure how it could be much worse then i thought...
The VENONA SECRETS book references letters Ted Kennedy sent to the Russian on how to cope with President Reagan. I think he was simply pissed that we did not elect him as President.
Wow. A whole brothel. What’s really impressive is that Viagra hadn’t been invented yet.
^^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^ FR needs a "like" button!
he knew he would never get the nomination.
