Top Secret Sen. Ted Kennedy Files To Be Released Family Given Permission To Review Files First BOSTON (CBS) ―
The FBI kept a top secret file on the late Senator Ted Kennedy. There are thousands of pages in it.
There could be a lot of material in there that would make tabloid editors salivate. The files are being released after media requests under the Freedom of Information Act, reports CBS station WBZ-TV.
The FBI is ready to make 3,000 of those pages public, but before they do, the Kennedy family will see them first.
The Globe reports that while the Kennedy's don't have the legal power to block the release of some of the material, they can request information be withheld if it violates their privacy interests.
But they can't object simply because it could be embarrassing.

yummy yummy juicy juicy-—how much about Mary Jo Kopechne?
None of it will be new to the editors in the newsrooms.
“But they can’t object simply because it could be embarrassing.”
Is there anything about Teddy that isn’t embarrassing?
If the stupid Kennedys can ask that they not be released because of privacy, what’s the point of the FOIA?
Is the Kennedy "historian", Arthur M. Schlesinger, still available for re-write?
Not news to the US Marshalls either.
But the Kennedy family will sanitize them first.
Too much to ask but I’d like to see the files on the swimmer when he was working with the Russians to take down Reagan
He should have been hanged for that.
He acted as a kind of Soviet agent of influence at a couple junctures. I vaguely remember that it did involve the KGB —it’s a fact.
Here come the IRS audits for whoever made this FOIA request!
I doubt that these “secret” files have not been edited. Kennedy was too powerful.
Who is foolish enough to think that the Kennedy's are treated just like you and me?
You mean how they document that Kennedy actually murdered Mary Jo?
His show is streamed live on www.wcrnradio.com
That’s what I was thinking too.
So what wouldn’t come under the cover of “privacy interests”? This will be spun for the benefit of the kennedy crime family.
The rat bastid is Now where he belonged years ago.
You mean there’s more crap that we don’t even know about?
What we already know is more than enough to make us physically ill.
Hey, is the FBI keeping a file BHO?
The Kennedy family gets to see them first so they can leak them to the MSM. The MSM will begin to work on spin propaganda to release to the public.
“they can request information be withheld if it violates their privacy interests.” ? Nice loophole.
What else do we need to know about this POS? Informed people know all about this murdering traitor.
Will it confirm that at one point he thought he was Aquaman? ;-)
Agreed, and what’s the difference between preventing release and having information withheld from the public?
I’m tired of make-believe royalty. Let’s go back to making all Americans equal.
Fat Ted was a Soviet mole!
The Kennedy clan for years fought to close down the US Army’s Ft. Benning GA training facility for Latin American military types. Fananticals about it.. Why?
I wonder how many times Gerry Adams comes up in these files? Forget Mary Jo, that was merely murder. But Adams-Kennedy and KGB-Kennedy is world politics and, if the USA still believed in it, treasonous acts.
“yummy yummy juicy juicy-how much about Mary Jo Kopechne?”
Watch the “top secret Ted Kennedy” files white wash everything. don’t be surprised if he isn’t recommended for sainthood.
Maybe those specially trained soldiers were used to undemine communist insurgent movements in South America and Central America? inimical to the interest of the Kennedy tribe.
Heavily redacted, I’m sure.
These files will be “sanitized” of the leftist political connections throughout the Vietnam war and Reagan, but they WILL leave in some stuff about his carousing because that will divert attention FROM the political stuff.
What else do we need to know other than Ted was a drunk, fat, mudering SOB?
Unedited or redacted ?
His bar tabs?
Oh I’m SURE the Kennedy family will have nothing to say about what is released! And the public will get nothing but the TRUTH about the swimmer.
The fact that most of them are “dead” is in itself a “sanitizing” action for Ameriica.
What? Sandy Berger not available to sanitize them first?
In the movie Charlie Wilson's War, there's a scene where the CIA guy says it's great that Wilson is being investigated for cocaine use: "If you've got sex and drugs to look at on this hand, you can hide a f***ing battlecruiser behind THIS hand, and no one's going to see it." Great movie.
I think he lived his life the way he wanted and wheter or not the sordid details are public or not public...it doesn’t matter. We all know who he was and what kind of person he was. So do the kennedeees. So, it is more important for THEM to pull out what they don’t want publicized. As for us...what we know is bad enough...so why would we want to know anything further about this disgraceful man? Everyone who knew him knows what he did over his years. Doesn’t matter now anyway. He is gone. He lived his life as he CHOSE to live it. So, who cares anymore anyway? He’s gone.
That WAS a great movie. We watched it once. Thanks for the reminde...we’ll check it out again.
Massachusetts found him guilty ... and sentenced him to life in the biggest swankiest Federal Country Club imaginable. The US Congress.
Need a link to ALL these secret documents.
Guess his lawyer or family wasn’t as good as his brothers. Their secret documents are still sealed.
Here’s what I first thought the title said:
“Top Secret: Sen. Ted Kennedy Files To Be Released”
Then I wondered from where he filed to be released, and how anyone found out about the filing. The first question immediately answered itself.
Then, I rubbed my eyes & realized there is no colon in the headline.
“He should have been hanged for that.”
He would have broken the rope;)
