Democrat presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. unloaded on the CIA during an interview with the editor of Unhurd Freddie Sayers, asserting the agency is involved in assassinations and fixing elections.
Sayers asked Kennedy if he planned to approach the CIA.
RFK responded to Sayers by calling the CIA to “be reorganized.”
“Very early on Allen Dulles( former CIA Director) corrupted the purpose of the CIA by getting it involved in assassinations and fixing elections… the CIA has been involved in coup d’état’s in a third of the countries in the world,” RFK said.
RFK added, “Our national policy as a country is to promote democracy. The CIA’s policy has been the opposite.”
Dulles, who RFK Jr. mentioned, served as the director of the CIA during the Cold War and oversaw several controversial CIA missions, including the following:
The 1953 Iranian coup
The 1954 Guatemalan coup
MKUltra mind control program
The Bay of Pigs invasion
President John F. Kennedy eventually fired Dulles following the Bay of Pigs disaster.
Last month, RFK Jr. said his father, the late Robert F Kennedy, and his uncle President John F Kennedy, were fighting the deep state before their untimely deaths.
“I think it had an impact on the world. I think my father and uncle were fighting against the emergence of the military-industrial complex,” RFK Jr said
“Their deaths really marked a fork in the road for our country and the rest of the world where we started down this road towards corporatism which I call the corrupt merger of state and corporate power.”
