Judicial Watch Obtains Previously Redacted Material from the FBI File of the Late Sen. Ted Kennedy
Judicial Watch ^ | February 25, 2011

Posted on 02/25/2011 10:49:42 AM PST by La Lydia

Judicial Watch...announced today that it has obtained previously redacted material from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) file of the late Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy, who died in August 2009 from brain cancer. Judicial Watch obtained the records pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit originally filed on June 9, 2010. The documents include a December 28, 1961, State Department memo describing a tour of several Latin American countries taken by then-Assistant District Attorney of Suffolk County Kennedy.

This document as it was originally made public was almost completely redacted. After an initial challenge by Judicial Watch, a version with fewer redactions was released. Judicial Watch continued to argue that the blackouts were baseless and, after six more months, the FBI relented. Among the statements previously withheld but now made available to Judicial Watch:

“While Kennedy was in Santiago he made arrangements to ‘rent’ a brothel for an entire night. Kennedy allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to participate in the night’s activities.”

“In each country Kennedy insisted on interviewing ‘the angry young men’ of the country. He wanted to meet with communists and others who had left-wing views. …Ambassador Freeman, Bogota, said the first person whom Kennedy wanted to meet was Lauchlin Currie.” (The document subsequently identifies Currie as a person who “had been mentioned in Washington investigations of Soviet spy rings.”)

“In Mexico Kennedy asked Ambassador Mann that certain left-wingers be invited to the Embassy residence where interviews could be held. Mann took the strong position that he would not invite such people and stated that if any such interviews were to be conducted, all arrangements should be made by Kennedy himself.”

(Judicial Watch, through separate litigation also recently forced the FBI to begin the release of the FBI file of the late Ted Stevens, the long-time Republican Senator from Alaska.)

“The FBI’s reluctance to follow the law and release this material shows that it, too, is not above politics. Our tough fight with the Obama administration shows that it was not keen on letting the American people know that Ted Kennedy, one of Obama’s leftist politician heroes, liked to hang out with communists and prostitutes,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton....

Notice all these traitorous goings-on took place while his brother was president. Wonder if the word ever got back to his brother via Dean Rusk.

The book “VENONA SECRETS” is about Russian msg from KGB to spies and embassies around the world. In these messages was a letter from Ted Kennedy to the Russian Leadership giving advice on how to deal with President Reagan. This clearly would of resulted in his impeachment from the senate if known. This clearly indicates that many of the current batch of Democrats are closet communists or socialists.

Found the answer to my question:

A number of prominent and wealthy American businessmen helped to support fascist regimes in Europe from the 1920s through the 1940s. These people helped to support Francisco Franco during the Spanish Civil War of 1936, as well as Benito Mussolini, and Adolph Hitler.

Some of the primary and more famous Americans and companies that were involved with the fascist regimes of Europe are: William Randolph Hearst, Joseph Kennedy (JFK’s father), Charles Lindbergh, John Rockefeller, Andrew Mellon (head of Alcoa, banker, and Secretary of Treasury), DuPont, General Motors, Standard Oil (now Exxon), Ford, ITT, Allen Dulles (later head of the CIA), Prescott Bush, National City Bank, and General Electric.

Pretty interesting article... notice GENERAL ELECTRIC !!

Not that this is news. Afterall, he was Joe Kennedy's son, and Joe admired Hitler.

Sen. Ted Kennedy killed a woman an got away with it. It took the police, the Democrat Party, prosecutors, and Judge James Boyle to cover up the crime.

“It looked as if she were holding herself up to get a last breath of air. It was a consciously assumed position. ... She didn’t drown. She died of suffocation in her own air void. It took her at least three or four hours to die. I could have had her out of that car twenty-five minutes after I got the call. But he [Ted Kennedy] didn’t call.”
— diver John Farrar, Inquest into the Death of Mary Jo Kopechne, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Edgartown District Court. New York: EVR Productions, 1970.

By Massachusetts law Judge Boyle, having found “probable cause” that Sen. Kennedy had committed a crime, could have issued a warrant for his arrest, but he did not do so.[36] District Attorney Dinis chose not to prosecute Kennedy for manslaughter, despite Judge Boyle’s conclusions.

District Attorney Dinis, who had attended the inquest and seen Judge Boyle’s report, told the grand jury that there was not enough evidence to indict Senator Kennedy on potential charges of manslaughter, perjury or driving to endanger.

On May 27 the Registrar informed Sen. Kennedy in a letter that “I am unable to find that the fatal accident in which a motor vehicle operated by you was involved, was without serious fault on your part”, and that as a result, his driver’s license was suspended for a further six months.[40]

The poor whores had to put up with that fat drunken pig for an entire night. I can see fat Ted waking up with two dead whores and KGB agents holding pictures of the crime scene. It’s like the scene in the Godfather where they set up the senator. Ted’s filthy habits made him an easy target.

God knows exactly why Teddy didnt call, and I think God will be just and fair - even though Teddy was not.

Very sad about Mary Jo, God bless her. Kennedy’s enablers will also not escape the Judge.

This sounds like the screenplay of a porn movie.

Her own f***ing parents helped too. They couldn't do enough to sacrifice their own daughter so they could remain in the Kennedy circle of influence.

Senator Pat Geary (aka swimmer Kennedy): I despise the way you pose yourself. You and your whole f'ing family.
Michael: We're both part of the same hypocrisy, senator, but never think it applies to my family.

Looks like Kennedy 'got off' on the poor - and maybe powerless young men too... slumming... Typical tacky liberal elite.

Wonder how the New Yoke ( Yokels) Times would have covered that story if Nixon had killed May Jo in the same way... or the Washington Poster Boys for Elites... It'd be different. Liberal wastrels are just fine with the MSM - well, as long as their liberal elites.

I’m afraid I don’t have a problem that.

At that period of time, many viewed the viewed the future as being a choice between fascism or communism; some businessmen chose fascism, seeing it as being somewhat friendlier to capital.

Some individuals were reprehensible; for instance Henry Ford was a virulent anti-semite and supported the Nazis for this reason among others.

In any case, doing business with fascist regimes prior to WWII was not illegal, or even obviously immoral.

These days, I’m not entirely certain that seeing the future as a choice between fascism or communism was wrong.
