John Kerry, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend doubt Oswald acted alone
The Secretary of State spoke to NBC’s Tom Brokaw as part of a series commemorating the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy. Kerry said, “To this day, I have serious doubts that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone.”
Kerry added, “I certainly have doubts that he was motivated by himself, I mean I’m not sure if anybody else is involved – I won’t go down that road with respect to the Grassy Knoll theory and all that – but I have serious questions about whether they got to the bottom of Lee Harvey Oswald’s time and influence from Cuba and Russia.”
This contradicts the findings of the Warren Commission which investigated the 1963 assassination.
Former Maryland Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend (pictured above) says she’s not sure if Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone shooter who killed her uncle, President John F. Kennedy.
“I don’t know, I don’t know,” she said in an interview aired on Fox News Sunday when Chris Wallace asked her if Oswald acted alone. “I think ... I don’t know.”
Townsend, the eldest child of Robert F. Kennedy, said it’s best not to focus on the uncertainty around her uncle’s murder 50 years ago this week in Dallas.
