    Bobby Kennedy was lionized by his death. His career was marked by self serving political opportunism. He was House counsel to the McCarthy hearings, advised his brother to foot drag on civil rights, spied on Martin Luther King as Attorney General and supported the Vietnam war until the public began to turn against it.

    You are 100% correct lless. Not only that, but as Attorney General he knew exactly who killed his brother and why and never said a word. Nor did Ted. The 1% keep their dirty little secrets well hidden.

    Still, it was a moment in History I will never forget, and as a teenager, it was tragic and sad. I knew I would never be the same after these high profile public office killings, and that I was no longer a naive and innocent 15 year old.

    imhotep, is there a good book that discusses that?

    katiebird, one book? No. But, “Mob Lawyer,” by Frank Ragano & Selwyn Rabb; “Contract Killer,” by William Hoffman & Lake Headley; and “Fatal Hour,” (“The Plot to Kill the President” in hardcover) by G. Robert Blakey & Richard N. Billings, are a good starting point.

    imhotep!!! Thank you so much! My library doesn’t have any of those books but, they DO have online ILL forms. So I’ve put requests in for all three books. I’m REALLY excited to finally get to dig into this subject. Thank you!!!
