In a recent interview, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. delivered his most direct accusations against the “deep state” yet, asserting the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) played a significant role in the 1963 assassination of his uncle, President John F. Kennedy. RFK Jr. firmly stated, “There is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder. I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point.”
The official account, presented by the Warren Commission, has long concluded that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone and without ties to a broader conspiracy. However, doubts have persisted, leading to countless theories, books, and films exploring alternative explanations.
RFK Jr. attributed his uncle’s assassination to JFK’s reluctance to engage in warfare during his presidency. He explained that JFK was “surrounded by a military-industrial complex and intelligence apparatus that was constantly trying to get him to go to war in Laos, Viet Nam, etcetera. He refused.” In contrast, JFK believed the role of the American president was to keep the nation out of war and declined to send combat troops to faraway overseas locations.

The presidential candidate pinpointed Jim Douglass’s book, “The Unspeakable,” as the most comprehensive source on the subject. He said the book effectively distills millions of documents, including confessions from individuals involved in the assassination and subsequent cover-up.
According to its publisher, Simon & Schuster, the book argues that JFK’s shift from his Cold War beliefs toward a policy of lasting peace put him in direct opposition with the United States’ powerful military and intelligence forces. These dark forces, committed to winning the Cold War at any cost, considered Kennedy a traitor and orchestrated his assassination and the subsequent cover-up.
The release of thousands of previously sealed documents by the National Archives in December has reignited interest in the JFK assassination. Before his departure from Fox News, Tucker Carlson claimed he had been in contact with a source who had access to still-hidden documents indicating CIA involvement in the murder.
Although some criticize RFK Jr. as outlandish and his siblings distanced themselves from him due to his stance on vaccines, it’s apparent that he is intelligent and well-researched. The official conclusion that a lone gunman was responsible for JFK’s death remains a point of contention for many citizens.
Despite the CIA’s website referencing an article labeling claims of the agency’s involvement as a “lie,” RFK Jr. is unwavering in his belief that the CIA played a crucial role in JFK’s assassination. He stated, “The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder, and in the cover-up.”
In light of the new information, it’s possible that public opinion could continue to shift. As RFK Jr. continues to bring attention to the issue, more Americans may question the validity of the official account and seek answers about the true nature of JFK’s assassination. With this renewed focus on the subject, the debate over the CIA’s role in the tragic event remains far from settled.
