Have you heard about the new forensic science that proves that there was more than one assassin? Why haven't we re-opened the case?

I read the affidavit (or interview - can't remember which) by the coroner in the RFK case years ago and he was removed from the case and not permitted to state officially that there were additional wounds inconsistent with Sirhan Sirhan being the sole shooter. Some shots apparently came from behind, but the government put a clamp on it. They still do. The only logical reason is that someone official is involved and they don't want to admit it was a political assassination and not a terrorist assassination. I have also read something about the possibility that Teddy's unfortunate accident in Chappaquiddick was another assassination attempt, which would explain why he didn't get the woman out of the car and stayed hidden from the sights of whoever had tried to kill him. I personally find it despicable that he would allow a woman to die, regardless of his political standing. But, if someone was trying to kill him, then I can understand. I don't like it, but I can understand it. I'm not sure what to believe after all these years, but with the Kennedy's having so much money and our government being willing to lie while breaking the law, how do we know what's true and what isn't. I think it's all possible anymore.

Jerzgirl you said it all. Most of the time it is people in our own government who has these people assassinated. It all comes down to "power" and we all know what that is "MONEY" We lost the best president we have had in hundreds of years when we lost JFK. Then when we got the chance to get another Kennedy in the White House someone had to stop that because they were about to tell the people the truth about our own stealing, killing and lying government officials. Now we know Johnson was behind the assassination of JFK, Maybe we will find out soon who fired the fatal shot on RFK.

I can't say that I think the government, per se, assassinated him. I don't totally trust the government any more - they've proven their willingness to lie to us to get what they want far too often. But, I don't have enough information to say, yes, the White House initiated this action. That doesn't mean that someone IN the government didn't organize it. But, how far up - it's mere speculation. I hope for the best, but try to not be surprised by the worst.

Read my response to Kykidd. I posted a link to a news article about the information. But basically forensic audio annalisists have new evidence that the man accused of assassinating RKF could not have acted alone, ergo there is another person involved that went free.

I didn't know that there was any evidence in the Robert Kennedy case. But I didn't know in the case of John F. Kennedy a lot of people say that the wrong person was accused of the murder and that the shots came from a different direction.

I was referring to this: http://cbs2.com/goldstein/RFK.Robert.Kennedy.2.716769.html This story has been reported on CNN the past week or so and I thought it was really interesting that the case hasn't been re-opened. Especially considering his role in American history.
