A call by a group of sixty prominent Americans to reopen the investigations of four assassinations in the 1960s has a special resonance today, at a time of legitimately heightened skepticism about “official” pronouncements coming from government agencies, especially those tied to military and intelligence networks. The group, which calls itself a “Truth and Reconciliation Committee”, has proposed setting up an oversight capability for the release of all documents related to the Kennedy assassination and presidency, as well as a public inquest into the other three assassinations in that tumultuous decade, of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Sen. Robert Kennedy. Members of the group include Isaac Newton Farris, Jr., a nephew of Dr. King; Rev. James A. Lawson, a close associate of King; Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., and Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, two children of Robert Kennedy; Daniel Ellsberg, whose release of the “Pentagon Papers” exposed the lies behind the build-up of the Vietnam War; filmmaker Oliver Stone; and historians, journalists, and experts who have investigated the assassinations.
Their call was released on the day commemorating the birth of civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King. Written by Adam Walinsky, a former speechwriter and leading aide of Senator Robert Kennedy, the statement opens by saying,
“Four major political murders traumatized American life in the 1960s and cast a shadow over the country for decades thereafter. John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy were each in their own unique way attempting to turn the United States away from war toward disarmament and peace, away from domestic violence and division toward civil amity and justice. Their killings were together a savage, concerted assault on American democracy and the tragic consequences of these assassinations still haunt our nation.”
To fulfill their commitment to “reinvestigate” the assassinations, they intend to push either Congress or the Department of Justice (DOJ) to reopen the investigations, to protect documentary evidence, to declassify documents, and to hold inquests, to provide an opportunity for witnesses and experts who dispute the “official” explanations to have a public hearing on these events. Polls repeatedly show that the majority of Americans do not believe the official stories about a string of “lone” assassins who have been identified as responsible for the killings.
In what may be surprising to those dependent on the anti-Trump media in transatlantic countries, there is a direct, common thread between those who carried out the assassinations of John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy, and the coverups which followed, and the networks directing the regime change coup ongoing against President Donald Trump. That thread has been revealed in the three-part series by Barbara Boyd, which documents the role of British military and intelligence operatives who have been running the coup effort against Trump from the beginning. As Boyd reveals, in great detail, the fear driving the high-level British operations against Trump is that if he is not stopped, the British-U.S. “special relationship”, which has dominated global strategic relations since the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt, will be destroyed. His stated desire to cooperate with Russia and China, rather than prepare for war against them, has already destabilized the neocons and neo-liberal ideologues, with their fantasies of keeping Russia and China subordinated to the “unilateral Empire” run by the Brits, backed by U.S. military force.
