Robert Kennedy’s death, like the President’s, was mourned as an extension of the evils of senseless violence; events moved on, and the profound alterations that these deaths … brought in the equation of power in America was perceived as random …. What is odd is not that some people thought it was all random, but that so many intelligent people refused to believe that it might be anything else. Nothing can measure more graphically how limited was the general understanding of what is possible in America.
~ Congressman Allard Lowenstein

Special Feature: Alex Jones
In the wake of all the media attention being given to Alex Jones, Kennedys and King looks back to 2010 when CTKA ran a series of very critical essays concerning his extremely questionable treatment of the JFK case.

Featured Articles & Reviews
- Jim Garrison: The Beat Goes On Written by James DiEugenio
In response to a recent article which he characterizes as “a compendium of every MSM caricature of Garrison and his Kennedy case that one can imagine”, Jim DiEugenio revisits the New Orleans DA's career and his JFK case, and what the ARRB and subsequent research has revealed about it.
- Robert A. Wagner, The Assassination of JFK: Perspectives Half A Century Later Written by David Mantik
Dr. Mantik states: “It is unique for me to write a second review, but too much remained unsaid after the first review. Wagner’s book clearly required more attention, especially since his profound mistakes are so often duplicated by the unenlightened mainstream media.”
(Wagner’s response to the first review is here)

- Clete Roberts interviews Roger Hilsman on Vietnam (1983) Written by Kennedys&King
Transcript, courtesy of David Giglio and Our Hidden History, of an interview with Roger Hilsman, who confirms that JFK's policy concerning Vietnam was essentially different from Johnson's. Note that he made these statements in 1983, nearly a decade before the publication of John Newman's book.

We have also appended an important addendum, another interview with Hilsman from 1969.
- Ken Silverstein and Jeffrey St. Clair Get Counterpunched Written by James DiEugenio
What happens when the Left abandons its concern for such things as accuracy, morality and fact-based writing? What does one call such reporting then? Does it then not become—for whatever reason—another form of propaganda? Jim DiEugenio once again blasts Counterpunch for its pig-headed blind spot concerning the Kennedys.
