Who Killed Robert Kennedy?
American Spectator ^ | May 30, 2018 | R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr.

Posted on 05/30/2018 2:47:46 PM PDT by Twotone

I have never believed in conspiracy theories. Though some critics have lumped me in with conspiracy theorists excogitating on Clinton aide Vince Foster’s death in Fort Marcy Park and other such phantasmagorias, I plead innocence. It is just too difficult to keep a conspiracy under wraps. Particularly in Washington and New York, where garrulity is the rule. A conspirator sitting on a big story is likely to tell someone for money or for prestige or for the sheer fun of it. If I recall correctly, even Woodward and Bernstein eventually told their secret about Deep Throat, and that was a rather simple secret. Imagine the pressure on survivors in the know to spill the beans on the plot to kill JFK or the real identity of the Rev. Martin Luther King’s assassin or, come to think of it, Donald Trump’s collusion with the Russians or Stormy Daniels or Martians. Breaking silence on these matters could assure the leaker fame unto eternity or at least a fat book contract.

No, I do not believe secrets about sensational events can be kept for very long. However, in light of the discovery of new evidence or new insights, I think a new investigation can be warranted. Now Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has stepped forward with an abundance of evidence that Sirhan B. Sirhan, who was convicted in 1969 of assassinating Robert’s father, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Sr., is innocent. At least Kennedy thinks Sirhan is innocent of killing his dad. That terrible June night in 1968 Sirhan did fire his 22 caliber pistol repeatedly in Los Angeles’ Ambassador Hotel, and he injured several people. However, the younger Kennedy believes someone else shot his dad. I think he makes a compelling case at least for reopening the investigation.

At this point, my rule is...

Behind every great crime, is the FBI.

Aristotle Onassis. Read Nemisis, by Peter Evans. Robert Kennedy to Onassis, “you will marry Jackie over my dead body”. (Paraphrased)

A guy spoke at my university about this case. He said there were more holes in RFK and the surrounding area than were in Sirhan’s gun. He believed that one of RFK’s security guards, following behind RFK, panicked and put a few rounds in his boss while trying to engage the attacker.

The article says that there were 13 holes in Kennedy, though Sirhan's gun could only hold 8 bullets.

I would think the autopsy would have made it clear how many bullets entered Kennedy.

I think this is conspiracy theory nonsense.

I cannot comment on anything about the Kennel-dogs, either Robert or his brother. They are perhaps the only US political family worst than The Billary family.

"I would think the autopsy would have made it clear how many bullets entered Kennedy."

Assuming you got an honest autopsy report. I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I don't believe anything our gov't says about anything...ever.

"It is just too difficult to keep a conspiracy under wraps."

Not if it serves the right agenda. Most people will believe what their masters in the press tell them to believe.

Anyone who exposes a real, counter-agenda conspiracy is effectively labeled a kook.

I am now convinced that there were two gunmen and 13 shots. Why were we lied to?

That story was been around for a long time. I read a book about it that included the actor who played John Milner in American Graffiti. Can't recall the name of the book though.

I'm thinking local autopsies are done by the County.

Of course if I was faking an autopsy, I would make certain to say that I found no more than 8 bullets in him, and so how did this idea that there were 13 get started?

Bullet holes in his clothes or something?

RFK was shot by Sirhan. As for the bullet that lodged in the back of Kennedy’s head....it’s because RFK was spun around as the shooting started. No other gunman was there.

Liberals like to tell you that what you see right in front of you is really not there. They are good at that.

CIA and LBJ had JFK assassinated. Dulles wanted Kennedy dead because he was fired and because Kennedy did not go along with the military industrial complex’s plans. Johnson was scared because he was corrupt and involved in the Bobby Baker scandal which was beginning to be exposed. By having Kennedy assassinated he became the President and had the authority to terminate the Bobby Baker investigation.

The CIA had relationships with organized crime so they hired several snipers to kill Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald was a patsy as he claimed. He seemed to be pretending to be a Communist but all the time was being set up by the CIA.

In the 1970s Senator Frank Church had an investigation about the assassination and the CIA. Many dark chapters in CIA history were revealed. They were the swamp before Trump had thought up that term.

If you want to learn much about the CIA go on youtube and look up Col. L. Fletcher Prouty. He was a Colonel and not just somebody making up conspiracy theories.
