Who did RFK suspect was involved in his brother’s death?

Phil Shenon writes: “I noticed the recent post on John McCone and wonder if it isn’t worth pointing out — given the recent fierce debate on the site and the criticism of my Politico piece — that Arthur Schlesinger’s quotation is strong evidence to support the idea that Bobby Kennedy DID have suspicions about Castro and Cuba, at least early on?”

    I imagine he may have considered the possibility of a Castro plot. While he also seemed to suspect the CIA and mafia he did know of the CIA assassination attempts on Castro. Throw in the first reports of Oswald’s “Communism” and pro Castro attitude provided by the DRE, I.E. paid for by the CIA and it seems plausible. Another good reason to release the Joannides files. Why did he maintain a “residence” (or safe house) in New Orleans the summer of 63?

  2. Brian Joseph says:

    He may have had some thoughts about that possibility early on given the plots against Castro. I also think it’s possible that shortly after that tragic day (if not before) he was aware that Oswald was being run by the company in an effort to get him into Cuba either to spy or eliminate Castro.

    Does it really matter what RFK thought tho? I don’t mean that in a condescending way. I just don’t understand the significance.

    • Ronnie Wayne says:

      Yes, it was his brother. He as Attorney General at the time. He did have inside contacts within the Government.

      Micah James Mason-Mileto asks:
      “Does it really matter what RFK thought tho?”

      For some of us, yes. I believe RFK and Burkley initiated the cover-up beginning with the autopsy. On the afternoon of the assassination, RFK asked CIA’s McCone if his agency was responsible. Frankly, that’s incredibly shocking! The likelihood that RFK suspected Castro or the Kremlin is zero.

      RFK was a sophisticated, highly engaged political insider. He possessed vast knowledge of the assassination backdrop including the Castro assassination plots, the CIA-Mafia partnership, Operation Northwoods, Operation Mongoose, organized crime, Cuban exiles, JM/WAVE and so on. He could have (and should have) provided information to give the case proper perspective. [That’s what researchers have been doing for the last five decades.]

      Imagine how citizens would have viewed the assassination had they known their President shared party girl Campbell with Chicago Mafia boss Giancana . . . and that Giancana and other TOP gangsters joint-ventured with the CIA to murder Castro . . . and that one of the CIA’s principals in that highly criminal endeavor was William Harvey, a recruiter of assassins and a person who hated the Kennedys. Needless to say, RFK was NEVER helpful.

      From the beginning RFK knew the investigation was going to be a colossal whitewash. After all, he was a participant. [See paragraph above.] Furthermore it is inconceivable that RFK was unaware of the cover-up memo generated by *RFK’s* FBI Director Hoover and *RFK’s* deputy AG Katzenbach. RFK could have objected to the official fairy tale at any time. Instead, whenever publicly confronted with assassination questions, he acted dopey, confused and annoyed.

      From the beginning, RFK knew who was responsible. It’s time to stop treating him like an innocent, inexperienced, baffled child.

    It has been alleged that the reports from the DRE were initiated by Scripps Howard news service reporter Hal Hendrix.

    However a cursory review of the Hendrix bio at Ed Forum’s ‘Spartacus’ reveals these updates:

    “However, Jeff Morley has pointed out that there is another explanation for this story. “A tape of the WDSU radio debate was first played on the air by NBC television at 3:30 Central Time (4:30 Eastern) on November 22. So the imputation that Hendrix had some inside knowledge is not confirmed. He could have gotten the information about the WDSU debate that he relayed to Kantor from watching TV.”

    So perhaps Hendix was not the alleged CIA mouthpiece but rather a skilled reporter with his ears to the ground the afternoon of the assassination; rather than filing the scoop of the century himself, he phoned Seth Kantor in Dallas with the information. (whether or not that might have delayed the report seems irrelevant.) After all, apparently Hendix was on his way out of the country, I presume chasing a bigger story.

    “‘In her book, A Farewell to Justice (2005) Joan Mellen argues that Hal Hendrix was one of a group of journalists in Miamia (sic) working for the CIA . . . According to the Spartacus entry, Larry Hancock speculated (on a specific date, the significance yet to be explained) that Hendrix was not designated No. 3 but rather No. 1 in that group of Miami journalists working for the CIA. (paraphrasing) . .

    (to be continued)

    • leslie sharp says:

      (continued)

      (from the Spartacus entry): ‘Hendrix left the Scripps-Howard News Service in 1966 and went to work for the International Telephone & Telegraph Corporation, as director of inter-American relations in Buenos Aires. . . . Later Hendrix moved to ITT’s world headquarters in New York City. . . . In 1970 ITT sent Hendrix to represent the company in Chile. On 4th September, 1970, Salvador Allende was elected as president of the country. Hendrix was disturbed by this development as Allende had threatened to nationalize $150 million worth of ITT assets in Chile . . . It later emerged that Hendrix worked with the CIA in the overthrow of Allende. His CIA contact during the Chile operation was David Atlee Phillips.’” – – Spartacus files

      Word search of this Spartacus entry on Hal Hendrix for the name John Alexander McCone comes up empty in spite of the fact that McCone, the former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, sat on the board of Hendrix’ employer, ITT from the time he resigned from the CIA (1965) and the following year when Hendrix was hired, through the overthrow of Allende in Chile and through Watergate which included on the periphery, the ITT/Dita Beard scandal. It begs credulity to assert that McCone did not know or was not at least aware of Hendrix.

      Perhaps Robert F. Kennedy was spun a tale cloaked in feigned sincerity that McCone believed there were two shooters; that would certainly cause Bobby to trust that he was ‘on their side’ … after all McCone exuded astute prescience. What Bobby could not know was that two years later McCone would be privy and most likely participate in the hiring of former CIA journalist Hal Hendrix who had been the conduit for the ‘Oswald as lone nut’ theory within hours of his brothers’ murder.

      “[P]erhaps Hendix was not the alleged CIA mouthpiece but rather a skilled reporter with his ears to the ground the afternoon of the assassination; rather than filing the scoop of the century himself, he phoned Seth Kantor in Dallas with the information.”

      I’m not saying it’s impossible, but this would be the journalistic equivalent of someone with a Gazillion Dollar Lottery winning ticket handing it to a random passerby and strolling off without a second thought. Reporters dream their entire lives of breaking stories like that. If indeed Hendrix did what you say, it suggests that he wasn’t actually a reporter, just used that career as cover.

  5. D. E. Mitchell says:

    “…personally, i believe that those suspect within the first 48, were those who were guilty of the murder of our 35th President. It was a conspiracy carried out by members within our government, supported by an “extreme right wing element of great wealth and power.” It was a coup de tat from start to finish, with both our 36th and 37th presidents involvement and aforeknowledge.”
    In other words; it was what almost everyone thought it was from the very beginning. If someone-anyone, would simply “clean up’ the last 26 frames of the “Z” film, that will remove all doubts; especially for those who cannot already see the gunmen behind the stockade fence!” DM
