RFK assassination witness: There were two shooters

One might wonder why they would cover this up for so long. But then, one might have trouble sleeping at night:

Los Angeles (CNN) — As a federal court prepares to rule on a challenge to Sirhan Sirhan’s conviction in the Robert F. Kennedy assassination, a long overlooked witness to the murder is telling her story: She heard two guns firing during the 1968 shooting and authorities altered her account of the crime.

Nina Rhodes-Hughes wants the world to know that, despite what history says, Sirhan was not the only gunman firing shots when Senator Kennedy was murdered a few feet away from her at a Los Angeles hotel.

“What has to come out is that there was another shooter to my right,” Rhodes-Hughes said in an exclusive interview with CNN. “The truth has got to be told. No more cover-ups.”

Her voice at times becoming emotional, Rhodes-Hughes described for CNN various details of the assassination, her long frustration with the official reporting of her account and her reasons for speaking out: “I think to assist me in healing — although you’re never 100% healed from that. But more important to bring justice.”

“For me it’s hopeful and sad that it’s only coming out now instead of before — but at least now instead of never,” Rhodes-Hughes told CNN by phone from her home near Vancouver, Canada.

  1. So, was this an inside-the-government hit job, or was the FBI truncating the investigation just because J. Edgar Hoo0ver hated the Kennedys?

  2. She might have been involved with RFK, and threatened with exposure or something worse.

    I’m pretty sure that Marilyn Monroe knew something about the JFK assassination, and concluded that it was best to keep her mouth shut. And even that may not have saved her.

  3. If you watch the video, witnesses were threatened with “causing an international incident” and further hurting the Kennedys if they didn’t keep their mouths shut, and being good Americans, they did.
