John F. Kennedy

Washington(ANN)-The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) murdered former US President John F. Kennedy, his brother, Robert F. Kennedy (RFK), and Martin Luther King, an American author and political analyst in Chicago says.

Stephen Lendman made the remarks in a phone interview with Press TV while commenting on the release of documents related to the assassination of former President John F. Kennedy (JFK) in November 1963.

On Friday night, President Donald Trump said he will release all the files related to the Kennedy assassination, with some redactions, in order “to put any and all conspiracy theories to rest.”

He said he talked to White House chief of staff John Kelly, officials at the CIA and other federal agencies, about this issue.

On Thursday, Trump allowed the release of about 2,800 documents related to the Kennedy murder, but delayed the publication of some “sensitive” files at the request of the CIA.

Trump said that he had “no choice” but to withhold information as requested by the CIA, FBI and other agencies, which argued that releasing all of the JFK assassination files would jeopardize US national security.

Lendman said actually releasing all of the Kennedy assassination documents “might jeopardize the CIA through exposing it for having assassinated John Kennedy, and Bobby Kennedy and Martin Luther King.”

“We need to get thousands of files released on them as well,” he stated.

“Sirhan Sirhan is still alive, in prison. He had nothing to do with the killing of Bobby Kennedy. Lee Harvey Oswald had nothing to do with the killing of Jack Kennedy. The CIA killed Jack Kennedy,” Lendman said, referring to the 35th president of the United States.

“And Kennedy was not shot twice from behind as the official report said. He was shot at least four times, from the front and from the back. And there was a bullet hole in the windshield of his limousine, and that was covered up, rather poorly, but it was covered up,” he noted.

Trump only released files that were worthless, the analyst said, adding “anything incriminating the CIA would have been eliminated.”

Lendman said that Oswald “was set up” and then “he was assassinated. He was assassinated by Jack Ruby, who was eliminated also.”

“And the moral of that story is: ‘dead men tell no tales,’” he observed.

Kennedy served as the president of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 22, 1963, in Dallas, Texas.

The President’s Commission on the Assassination of Kennedy, known unofficially as the Warren Commission, was established by former President Lyndon B. Johnson in November 1963 to investigate the assassination of JFK.

The commission’s final 888-page report released in September 1964 concluded that Oswald acted entirely alone in assassinating Kennedy.

However, many researchers are unconvinced by the official government account and argue that Oswald was part of a conspiracy to kill the charismatic 46-year-old president. The assassination of Kennedy has been the subject of conspiracy theories for more than 50 years.

Democratic Congressman John Lewis, a friend of Kennedy, told The Hill recently that he did not believe the selected release would end questions about the former president’s death.

“I think there will be people — be historians or scholars and writers — [who] would raise some questions about what happened and how it happened,” the 77-year-old politician said. “There will be people saying, like they were saying 50 years ago, ‘Why did [Kennedy] go to Texas, why Dallas?”
