The purloined brain

Haven’t I heard this before… ” a new book claims…”  ?

RFK may have swiped JFK’s missing brain | New York Post.

John F. Kennedy’s noodle didn’t get buried with him on Nov. 25, 1963, at Arlington National Cemetery — and his own brother might have been behind the theft, a new book claims.

“Not all the evidence from the assassination is at the National Archives. One unique, macabre item from the collection is missing — President Kennedy’s brain,” writes James Swanson in “End of Days: The Assassination of John F. Kennedy,” which comes out Nov. 12, just a few weeks before the 50th anniversary of JFK’s death.

An investigation was ordered by then-Attorney General Ramsey Clark, but the probe failed to recover the missing brain — which remains unaccounted for today, Swanson said.

“My conclusion is that Robert Kennedy did take his brother’s brain — not to conceal evidence of a conspiracy but perhaps to conceal evidence of the true extent of President Kennedy’s illnesses, or perhaps to conceal evidence of the number of medications that President Kennedy was taking,” he said.

Of course conspiracy theorists are claiming RFK stole his brother’s brain to cover up the theory of the second gunman on the grassy knoll. An idea Swanson refutes.

More publicity for the anniversary, to sell books. Man, I can’t wait until November is over. This is a circus.

    Oh course he stole it, duh? It’s a no brainer. 😉

    Even if you assumed RFK took the brain, why not assume he wanted to bury it properly with the rest of the body, or in another Catholic Cemetery, perhaps at the behest of his Father? It’s missing from the list.

    His short list of possibilities tells me this fellow isn’t thinking, he’s just decided the Kennedy’s were villains and he needs to “prove” it with his hallucinatory conjecture, he’ll go as far away from proofs as required to get there. They were far from perfect, but give them some credit for not being absurd mustache-twirlers.

    Not to mention he “swiped” it? Himself? What is he, the Pink Panther? Did he have visitation rights, and walked out with the Jar under his macintosh?

    A broken limb, a rotten limb, and a baseless leap of faith. Well, others will follow him because they want to go to that dead end. I won’t be wasting my money destroying trees for this. Maybe if the buried the lot, it would be carbon sequestration.

    In several conspiracy theories, JFK wanted to blow the whistle on MJ-12.

    I knew his brain was missing.

    And “Whisperer in Darkness” is arguably the first UFO story.

    How did I not make this connection before?

    Of course The Color Out Of Space was an alien invasion story. And a better one than any pulp BEM stuff.

    Stealing JFK’s brain was equivalent to stealing scrambled eggs considering the damage done to it.

    Why single out anyone? JFK’s brain’s probably in a private collection somewhere. One of the people trusted not to steal the brain shouldn’t have been.
