RFK Jr.: 'Overwhelming' Evidence That CIA Was Behind JFK Assassination

Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. made his strongest allegations yet over the weekend about the 1963 assassination of his uncle, JFK, flat-out accusing the Central Intelligence Agency of being behind the world-altering murder. It’s not the first time he’s indicated this belief, but his comments are some of the most categorical statements he’s made on the subject.


On Sunday, he spoke on radio with host John Catsimatidis on WABC 770 AM’s “Cats Roundtable” and left no doubts about where he stands:

There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point.

The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder—and in the cover-up.

JFK was president on Nov. 22 1963 when he was fatally shot while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, Texas. The official position after the Warren Commission investigation has been that lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and that there was no evidence of a broader conspiracy.

Many people were left unsatisfied by the explanation, and in the years since countless theories have been floated, books have been written, and movies have been made speculating on a variety of different possible plots by Russia, the Mafia, Cuba, and others.

RFK also accused the CIA of orchestrating the hit on Saturday during an appearance on the podcast “All In“:

RFK suggests our own government did in his uncle because of his reluctance to go to war:

When my uncle was president, he was surrounded by a military-industrial complex and intelligence apparatus that was constantly trying to get him to go to war and in Laos, Viet Nam, etcetera. He refused.

He said that the job of the American president is to keep the nation out of the war. He refused to send combat troops.


He also said that one book in particular makes the best case for the argument:

People, you know who question that [the CIA was behind the assassination], I’ll tell you that, you know, a book that that probably distills the millions of documents of evidence, including confessions and people who were involved in the crime, and the six year cover up, the best kind of distillation, that is a book called “The Unspeakable” by Jim Douglass…

I’ve, of course, read probably 100 books on the subject, and I recommend that book is the best.

The 2010 book is fully titled “JFK and the Unspeakable: Why He Died and Why It Matters,” and its publisher Simon Schuster describes it thusly on its website:

At the height of the Cold War, JFK risked committing the greatest crime in human history: starting a nuclear war. Horrified by the specter of nuclear annihilation, Kennedy gradually turned away from his long-held Cold Warrior beliefs and toward a policy of lasting peace. But to the military and intelligence agencies in the United States, who were committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, Kennedy’s change of heart was a direct threat to their power and influence. Once these dark “Unspeakable” forces recognized that Kennedy’s interests were in direct opposition to their own, they tagged him as a dangerous traitor, plotted his assassination, and orchestrated the subsequent cover-up.

Interest in the subject of the assassination was rekindled when the National Archives released thousands of documents in December that had been sealed for the six decades since JFK’s death.


Tucker Carlson, meanwhile—before his unceremonious departure from Fox News—reported that he was in contact with a source who had access to still-hidden documents that show CIA involvement in the murder.

Some paint RFK, Jr. as a wacko, and his own siblings distanced themselves from him because of his stance on vaccines. However, it’s also clear that he is smart and does his research.

One thing is clear: the official conclusion of the government that a lone gunman killed the president is still not believed by vast numbers of citizens.
