Kerry has ‘serious doubts’ about lone gunman theory

I’ve written here about “Six Washington insiders who suspected a JFK plot.”

Now you can add another name to the list: Secretary of State John Kerry.

“To this day, I have serious doubts that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone,” he told NBC’s Tom Brokaw.

“I certainly have doubts that he was motivated by himself, I mean I’m not sure if anybody else was involved — I don’t go down that road with respect to the Grassy Knoll theory and all that -— but I have serious questions about whether they got to the bottom of Lee Harvey Oswald’s time and influence from Cuba and Russia,” Kerry said.

    Happy to hear some open-mindedness from the Secretary of State – even if we have to hear more about Cuba and the USSR.

    I hope like hell Mr. Morley will be on some of these programs. I’ve been waiting for sober and knowledgeable analysis from a professional on television for years.

    John Kerry seems to choose his words quite carefully, stating he does not feel that the CIA was involved but that Oswald may have come under the influence of Cuba/Russia.

    I dont suppose a man in his position would implicate the CIA in the assassination of a president.

    Nevertheless, it is good that a secretary of state adds his voice to the majority of the people who have serious doubts regarding the findings of the Warren Commission.

    The FOX News special Saturday night reported that there are flesh and fabric samples from bullet fragments that have not been tested with DNA and other forensic tests. DoJ attorney John T. Orr reported to Attorney General Reno that the bullet trajectories do not match an “Oswald acted alone” scenario, and that there must have been a gunman on the roof of the County Records Building who fired the fatal head shot. Orr recommended the forensic testing, which was not completed. Apparently there are obvious investigative steps that have not been taken in this case.

    Secretary Kerry has done this in a _very_ smart fashion. Instead of directly blaming the guilty parties (JE Hoover, CIA, etc) he takes the most benign angle, the same one used by LBJ (suspect himself) and the early WC apologists:

    “It was Cuba/the Soviets and thus we cannot dig too deep”

    Brilliant!!
