Default Kennedy, King, Malcolm X relatives and scholars seek new assassination probes

Their letter calls for a Truth and Reconciliation Committee on the JFK, RFK, MLK and Malcolm X slayings.

Quote:
Joined by relatives of Robert F. Kennedy, the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X, a group of more than 60 authors and investigators have called for a new congressional investigation into the assassinations of the three men and President John F. Kennedy, saying that the four slayings were not resolved and “had a disastrous impact on the course of American history.”

In a public statement, they demanded a public tribunal modeled on South Africa’s “Truth and Reconciliation” process to persuade either Congress or the Justice Department to revisit all four assassinations.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and former Maryland lieutenant governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend (D), two of Robert Kennedy’s children, signed the statement, as did Isaac N. Farris, a nephew of King and former president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and the Rev. James M. Lawson Jr., a Memphis pastor and mentor to King. It is also supported by G. Robert Blakey, the chief counsel of the former House Select Committee on Assassinations; Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg; Robert McClelland, the doctor who worked on President Kennedy after his 1963 shooting in Dallas; and entertainment figures such as Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Oliver Stone and Rob Reiner. The statement was issued Saturday, during the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend.

The 1960s assassinations have spawned conspiracy theories and claims of governmental misconduct for decades. In each case, local police, federal investigators and state and local judges have reaffirmed the findings that lone gunmen killed both Kennedys and King, and that the three men convicted of murder killed Malcolm X. But those official conclusions have left many unsatisfied.

“The one thing you can say,” Robert Kennedy Jr. said in a recent interview, “Sirhan Sirhan did not fire the shots that killed my father.”

The son of the former senator revealed to The Washington Post last year that he had visited Sirhan in prison in December 2017 and came away convinced of Sirhan’s innocence. He has continued to research possible alternative theories into the June 1968 slaying of his father in Los Angeles. He and other

Some of it may be a conspiracy
I don't know if this letter will spawn any revelations but if I was a relative and unsure about the truth I would sign off on anything that might give me solace.

Fact is the Gov't did have something to do with both Kenendy's, King's and Malcolm X's murders, and the following cover ups.
anyone that looks at much of the evidence available in each case can't really come away saying otherwise.

There were more bullets at the Dallas shooting than Oswald's socalled gun could account for. Attested to by fragments, wounds, and bullet holes/marks left in the car and street.
The cover up with JFK is the most glaring from the 2/3 autopsies to the lies/cover about Oswald, and his many gov't connections and activities.
Not to mention the boatload of coincidentally deaths and "suicides" of contrary witnesses.

RFK, again the number of shots in the room do not fit the number of bullets in the convicted killers weapon.
AND he was never close enough to RFK for the weapon to make the powder burns of RFK's wounds attested to by the forensics.

the King Family has already had a public hearing where witness after witness presented various evidences that disproved the gov't story. from the alleged weapon being wrong. To the odd nature of the convicted assassins presence there and improbability of him making the shot. As well as eyewitnesses of other shooters and testimony from former gov't operatives that claimed to be there as a 2nd team to make sure the job was done.

In Malcolm X's case there are gov't doc and testimony of various people that shows that the FBI and other LEOs fomented strife in Malcolm X's Group to instigate his murder... at the least. beyond that i'm not familar with many details. but I would not be surprised if there's more.
But i this point I would not go beyond gov't attempts at instigation of his murder.

Seem many in the American public, for whatever reasons, do not want to act as juror at large themselves. and to objectively review the available info for themselves.
And seem to want the gov't to definitively tell them that
"Yes, portions of U.S. Gov't planned or had a part in killing JFK, RFK, MLK and MalcolmX... to name a few Americans... sorry about that"
for some reason I don't think that will happen for a few hundred years... if ever.
the MSM throws a bone every blue moon but they are bound to gov't at the hip on these issues and some times lie worse than the gov't itself.

I am unconvinced JFK wasn't what was told to us- a lone assassin.
Robert maybe. MLK there were so many threats against his life, one was bound to succeed. Malcolm X was a conspiracy but whether government (s) were involved I don't know.

The congressional committee found that JFK had been killed by a conspiracy and not just a loan gunman.
The king family trail found that it wasn't random kkk or racist but the U.S. govt involved in the conspiracy that killed him.
Hopefully they'll be new investigations and they'll get some traction and help more people get a handle on what happened and how parts of the U.S gov't really work.

BTW, a new Federal Grand Jury has been convened concerning the attacks of Sept 11, . Brought by victim's families and the "lawyers committee for 911 inquiry".

better late than never.

There is no doubt the assassination of Malcolm X was a conspiracy including Louis Farrakhan and Elijah Mohammad. They killed him because he began to deviate from the Nation of Islam anti white message.

I always thought they found there was a conspiracy to cover up facts in the JFK assassination.

I'll take your word for that.
When I realized the Lincoln conspiracy was covered up for a century, it kind of put me off chasing those particular assassination mysteries.

I can understand that.
But here's my thinking on the situation.

At this point, what solid info do we have in hand?
We will probably never know the whole story on any of these issues.
but you don't have to know the whole story to get the a true sense of what happen and who was most likely was involved and who most likely wasn't.
If you have murder scene of any kind with enough info it's possible to rule out certain suspects and narrow the focus to others who align with evidence.

with JFK, RFK and MLK the evidence at hand shows that the people accused were either not alone or not the killers. and other evidence points to players within the federal gov't..

the details and other players may be sketchy in various places but the overall picture isn't a completely blurred. Some parts are very clear.
The bigger hurdle for most folks in seeing the picture is incredulity at the fact that some portions our gov't would be so deeply corrupt and murderous.

they went further than that... while not trying to offend or point the finger at literally anyone

House Select Committee: Summary of Findings and Recommendations
"...Scientific acoustical evidence establishes a high probability that two gunmen fired at President John F. Kennedy. Other scientific evidence does not preclude the possibility of two gunmen firing at the President. Scientific evidence negates some specific conspiracy allegations.
The committee believes, on the basis of the evidence available to it, that President John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee is unable to identify the other gunman or the extent of the conspiracy....
