(UnitedVoice.com) – President John F. Kennedy died on November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas. He was riding in a presidential limousine with a convertible top, waving at the Americans who lined the street, when suddenly someone shot him. Roughly 30 minutes later, doctors at Parkland Memorial Hospital pronounced him dead.
In the years since the shooting, not everyone has bought the story they were told by law enforcement officers and the government about how the president died. In fact, a member of his own family thinks the official explanation is nonsense.
JFK’s Nephew Speaks Out
On May 7, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr (RFK Jr.) spoke to John Catsimatidis on WABC 770, a radio station based in New York City. He spoke about his uncle’s death and said he believes there’s “overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder.” He went on to say he thinks the proof of the crime is “beyond a reasonable doubt.”
RFK Jr. believes the CIA killed JFK because he refused to send American troops to Vietnam. He claims that while Kennedy was in office, the “Military-industrial complex and intelligence apparatus” were trying to force him to involve the US in a war, but he felt it was his duty to keep America out of it.
The Democratic candidate appeared on Fox News on Monday, May 8, to discuss his theory further with Sean Hannity. He claimed there’s a “60-year cover-up” of his uncle’s murder. He claimed the Warren Commission, which investigated the assassination, was run by Allen Dulles, the former CIA director whom Kennedy had previously fired.
RFK Jr. wants President Joe Biden to release all of the documents related to his uncle’s case and ensure they aren’t overly redacted.
Theories About JFK’s Death
In the wake of the assassination, former Marine Lee Harvey Oswald was accused of firing the shots that killed JFK. He was then killed two days later by a nightclub operator named Jack Ruby. There were allegations that Oswald worked for the CIA. However, the intelligence agency has repeatedly denied ever having any contact with the alleged killer.
The House Select Committee on Assassinations in the Assassination of President John F. Kennedy determined there was sufficient scientific proof to establish a “high probability that two gunmen fired” at the president. Other evidence doesn’t “preclude the possibility of two gunmen” firing at the motorcade.
The same committee determined no US government agency, including the CIA and FBI, had anything to do with the assassination. Lawmakers also ruled out the possibility that the Cuban and Russian governments were involved.
