Ted Kennedy FBI file reveals threats (Minutemen threats?)
MSLSD via Breaking News(Twitter) ^

Posted on 06/14/2010 8:04:19 AM PDT by pillut48

NEW YORK - After the violent deaths of his brothers, the youngest Kennedy, Teddy, lived under constant threat that he too would meet an assassin's bullet. As he put it bluntly, “They're going to shoot my ass off the way they shot off Bobby's.”

We are learning more about these files, as the FBI has released 2,352 pages from its file on the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

The FBI has posted the file on its hot topics page. If you see new information in the files, please send us an e-mail.

The new file is dominated by investigations of threats against Ted Kennedy, who died Aug. 25 at age 77. "These threats originated from multiple sources, including individuals, anonymous persons, and members of radical groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, 'Minutemen'organizations, and the National Socialist White People’s Party," the FBI said. "The file also contains threats from individuals angered by Kennedy’s stance on politics in Northern Ireland and allegations of an alleged Mafia plot to kill President Kennedy and Senators Robert and Edward Kennedy."

I think he did have real concerns for his life. I always felt it would be some nut wanting to be famous for taking down the last Kennedy.

Ted was his own worse enemy. He lead a life of sin and deceit and that left scars on his family and this country.

Waitress Sandwich —that’s what Teddy called it, when he humped a waitress along with some other important democrat, back there in Massachusetts. I think it was at The Black Dog, but I could be mistaken.

The man felt he was subject to a different set of rules.

I think we have NOTHING to do with the people who offed his brothers.

The comparison is totally unfair.

Waitress Sandwich —the humping was on the floor in the middle of the bar.

Sorry I didn’t make that clear.

"I think he did have real concerns for his life. "

I think there was more of a threat to the people who rode in cars and planes with him, than his losing his life to an assassin.

“They’re going to shoot my ass off the way they shot off Bobby’s.”

It would take a rather large clip with a high caliber round to shoot the ass off.. that ass.

All garbage.
REAL threats don’t make threatening calls or send letters.
They try to kill you.

It has been PROVEN that Lee Harvey Oswald did not and could not have fired the shot that killed President Kennedy.

If he was so concerned about being assassinated, he should have just retired from public office and public life. He was a political whore who enjoyed the limelight and milking the taxpayer’s of every last dime they had.

Well, his brothers and his father came up a little short in the morals catagory too.

***It has been PROVEN that Lee Harvey Oswald did not and could not have fired the shot that killed President Kennedy.***

On the contrary! It was proven that Oswald DID nc could do the shot, on the Discovery or History channel a couple of years ago.

Using artificial cadavers, placed EXACTLY as the limo was set up, with Conally in a special “jump seat”, using ammo from the lot used by Oswald, and at the hight of his firing position.

Upon firing the rifle the bullet hit, bounced, twisted and landed in EXACTLY the same positions with the same “wounds” on the artificial cadavers as Kennedy and Conally received.

A target that size...well, at least we now know the real reason for the ammo shortage last year.

The other senator was none other than Chris Dodd. The event occuredin 1985 at La Brasserie, a restaurant near Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.

The Minuteman organizations referred to here have no relation to the current Tea Party organizations and the border related Minuteman organization. The Minuteman organizations referred to here were groups in the 50s and 60s that (correctly) thought the government was infiltrated with communists and were generally opposed to the civil rights movement. They were never very numerous and died out in the 70s.

Ted was obviously off his rocker, and I'm not just thinking of his wannabe KGB connect. Robert Kennedy was shot by a palestinian who had nothing to do with "minutemen", and I think his a** was completely unhurt. Guess Teddy's head was full of what Teddy's head was full of.

Actually, some crazy woman tried to fight her way into Kennedy’s office with a knife, but a Secret Service, who was guarding the Senator at the time, stopped her.

Man murders a woman, gets away with it, and then plays the victim. He even met privately with the KGB to thwart President Reagan’s agenda.

He had a lot of balls.

History would show that Ted put a bootle to his head (actually it was his liver) and pulled the trigger.

Regarding an assassination plot, I have no doubt that some, probably most of the threats were staged, Ted trying to play the victim card.

Ted was a drunk and a coward.

I’d call him a murderer but he didn’t actually kill Mary Jo, he just let drown.
