Who Really Killed Bobby Kennedy? With th…

Who Really Killed Bobby Kennedy?

With the new Hollywood film “Bobby” released about the assassination of Robert Kennedy questions come up once again about who really killed Bobby Kennedy.

Was it the lone gunman Sirhan Sirhan or was it CIA operatives behind it? Some have even named the mafia as being possibly involved. Personally I have never believed it was the lone gunman Sirhan, Sirhan.

Sirhan Sirhan, a 24 year old Palestinian was arrested as the lone assassin and notebooks at his house seemed to incriminate him. Even under hypnosis, he couldn’t remember the shooting and the defence psychiatrists in his case concluded that he was in a trance at the time.
Witnesses placed Sirhan’s gun several feet in front of Kennedy but the autopsy showed the fatal shot came from one inch behind. A world authority on hypnosis at Columbia University, Dr. Herbert Spiegel. believes that Sirhan may have been hypnotically programmed to act as a decoy for the real assassin.

Now new video and photographic evidence that puts three senior CIA operatives at the scene of Robert Kennedy’s assassination has been brought to light.

Evidence was shown in a report by Shane O’Sullivan, broadcast on BBC Newsnight. It reveals that the operatives and four unidentified associates were at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles in the moments before and after the shooting on 5 June, 1968. The CIA had no domestic jurisdiction and some of the officers were based in South-East Asia at the time, with no reason to be in Los Angeles.

Kennedy had just won the California Democratic primary on an anti-War ticket and was set to challenge Nixon for the White House when he was shot in a kitchen pantry.

THE CIA CONNECTION

Are you convinced by the evidence in the report? Click on this link to see the video report This report is the result of a three-year investigation by filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan. He reveals new video and photographs show three senior CIA operatives at the hotel. So what were they doing there?

Three of these men have been positively identified as senior officers who worked together in 1963 at JMWAVE, the CIA’s Miami base for its Secret War on Castro.
David Morales was Chief of Operations and once told friends: “I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in Los Angeles when we got the little bastard.” He would be referring to former President John F. Kennedy in Dallas and Robert Kennedy in Los Angeles.

Gordon Campbell was Chief of Maritime Operations and George Joannides was Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations.

Joannides was called out of retirement in 1978 to act as the CIA liaison to the Congressional investigation into the JFK assassination. Now, we see him at the Ambassador Hotel the night a second Kennedy is assassinated.

Memory

There have been calls for a fresh investigation into the shooting. November 20 would have been Bobby Kennedy’s 81st birthday. In Los Angeles, Paul Schrade was walking behind Robert Kennedy at the Ambassador when Kennedy was shot and believes this new evidence merits fresh investigation: “It seems very strange to me that these guys would be at a Kennedy celebration. What were they doing there? And why were they there? It’s our obligation as friends of Bob Kennedy to investigate this.”

Ed Lopez, a former Congressional investigator who worked with Joannides in 1978, says:
“I think the key people at the CIA need to go back to anybody who might have been around back then, bring them in and interview them, and ask – is this Gordon Campbell? Is this George Joannides?”

This report was shown on Newsnight on Monday, 20 November, 2006.

It is my hope that the truth will come out as to who really assasinated Robert Kennedy. Justice is overdue for this remarkable American. He walked tall among men.

Bobby you left us too soon. You are gone but never forgotten.

I would be interested in hearing what you think, so feel free to post your take on things.

The Call To Drive Out the Bush Regime

It is not enough to know the truth but it is a time to take action. The agenda of the present administration is based on fear and lies. It is not to serve the American people. The evidence is out there. We need to spread the truth. Otherwise, our liberties are lost forever.

Take a moment to read and take action. Share the message with friends, family and your community

President Bush Gives a Career Opportunity To An Old Family Friend

Those Bush boys sure like to keep it in the family. The following article gives you an idea of who old Rummy is being replaced by. Perhaps old Rummy is stewing over his fate as he is being investigated by a german court for crimes against humanity. I’m not too optimistic that justice will come soon enough. Stay tuned.

Robert Gates: New Defense Secretary & Old Bush Family Friend
By Kenneth J. Theisen, 11/9/06

Robert Gates, the nominee to replace Donald Rumsfeld as Secretary of Defense, is widely respected in ruling circles and is an old friend of the Bush family. This should immediately give pause to any who harbor illusions that the “fresh perspective” offered by the Bush regime will include a withdrawal from the Iraq war. Let there be no doubt, the regime is still committed to victory in Iraq. Winning the war will be Gate’s task.

Just who is Robert Gates? Aside from a couple years spent in the U.S. Air Force where, among other duties, he provided intelligence briefings to ICBM missile crews, he spent most of his life working for the CIA, including as the CIA Director from 1991 to 1993 under George H.W. Bush. His most recent job was as the President of Texas A&M University, the home of the first Bush’s Presidential library. But he was not just an academic. He is a current member of the high-level Iraq Study Group (ISG) chaired by another Bush family friend, James Baker. (Yes, the same Baker that helped steal the 2000 election.) Read more

Conyers Releases Massive New Report on Bush-Cheney Crimes

The minority staff of the U.S. House of Representatives Judiciary Committee, under the leadership of Congressman John Conyers (D., Mich.) just released a staggering report with the hard evidence of crimes and abuses committed by President Bush and his administration (breaking 26 specific laws). This report, “The Constitution in Crisis,” should provide the raw material for numerous news reports and point reporters toward fertile ground for additional investigations. Read More

What Have We Become?

Imagine that you are strapped to a board, blindfolded, and your mouth taped shut. Suddenly you are upended and your head is plunged below water, or water is poured continuously on a pile of rags across your face. Water is forced up your nose, you choke and gag, you cannot cry out or do anything to stop it. This is ‘water boarding’, one of the many torture techniques being carried out by the United States government.

In a recent radio interview, Vice President Dick Cheney’s callous remarks about water-boarding were “it’s a no brainer for me”. God help us all when such evil is all matter of fact and just par for the course.

But let us not become a Dick Cheney… Speak out. Water boarding is just one of the torture tactics being done on ‘suspected terrorists’, those same ‘suspected terrorists’ who are being held indefinitely in prisons without access to legal counsel or family. They haven’t even been brought to trial yet, at least the courts would have to show the evidence of their crimes. With dictatorial powers by the President those same prisoners could languish for years in those holding pens.

American citizens, too, are open season by the present administration.

Following is the letter I sent by email to Vice President Cheney

vice_president@whitehouse.gov

October 30, 2006

Dear Mr. Cheney,

There have been many policies that your Administration has orchestrated that offend and appall me. The most recent remark you made on a recent radio interview is equally disturbing. In reference to water boarding used as a torture tactic you said its a no brainer for me.

How disturbing and what a callous attitude on your part Mr. Cheney. I am convinced that you do not have a conscience judging on that remark and your performance in office.

The torture law is a total disgrace and shameless that it had been signed, sealed and delivered. Unfortunately, not enough men with real character, back bone and decency stepped up to the plate to defeat that bill.

Not only is torture unconscionable but is ineffective in interrogation methods. Many generals of the military who have first hand experience on the front lines have said that there are other tactics that are effective as interrogation methods.

In extensive interviews with MSNBC.com, former leaders of the Defense Departments Criminal Investigation Task Force said they repeatedly warned senior Pentagon officials beginning in early 2002 that the harsh interrogation techniques used by a separate intelligence team would not produce reliable information, could constitute war crimes, and would embarrass the nation when they became public knowledge. (Bill Dedman, Investigative Reporter, MSNBC October 24, 2006).

There was a time in your countries history when there were good and decent men with admirable character in leadership. It certainly doesn’t apply today.

When I see President Bush taking the oath to uphold the Constitution while being sworn into office I am so disgusted. You have failed in that respect 100%. The Constitution that your President says he will uphold while in office treats it as nothing more than a damn piece of paper making a mockery of it. The Constitution is more than just a piece of worthless paper as you may think. It holds the very principles that America holds dear. For anyone to think less of it I find offensive.

The forefathers taught that unalienable rights are endowed upon mankind by God and believed that governments exist not to grant or deny these rights, but only to protect them. They recognized and warned that a central, federal government could become too strong and they went to great lengths to ensure that a system was established that was checked within itself by a balance of power. Yes, checks and balances which you arrogantly think that you are above.

We know who you really serve and it is certainly not in the best interests of the American people. Your masters are the globalists and what you have cooperated in doing to America and the world is dangerous, immoral, and an insult to the memories of the noble forefathers.

The corruption by the Republicans in Washington is deplorable.

Mr. Cheney, you will be held accountable eventually to the American people.

Sincerely,

Judith Howard

Bush Owes Us an Apology

September 18 “Countdown” host Keith Olbermann offers comments on President Bush’s Rose Garden news conference on Friday.

Former Secretary of State, Colin Powell, the latest critic of President Bush, questions the moral basis of his fight on terrorism. Those comments don’t escape the wrath of the President.

Thank you Keith for having the guts to tell the truth. Top notch journalism.
