Thane Caesar an avowed supporter of Gerorge wallace & White Supremacy was the real killer who executed RFK firng point blank into his head. RFK went down, but it was not without a fight against is killer.
My fellow JFK researcher, Roy Schaeffer, discovered this and told me about it more than 30 years ago, but the photos proving it were hidden until jwe located them a few years ago. The most important one is attached below,
As he was being shot, RFK reacted to Caesar’s attack from behind while turning away from Sirhans shots coming from the front. As Cesar put his gun to RFK’s head, the Senator turned violently to the right, reaching out with his right arm to protect himself.
RFK’s last action and motions as he was shot was to grasp Thane Caeser by the throat.
Cesar struggled to break away from RFK’s grip as he and the Senator fell to the floor.
Struglling with his victim, Thane Cesar broke Kennedy’s grip and saved his throat, but not before RFK had ripped Caesar’s clip-on tie right off his neck and then clutched it strongly to his chest as the chaos unfolded.
For more than 40 years, the Deep Stae actors, the CIA, FBI and the LAPD, with the help of hundreds Mockingbird Media harpies have hidden the most important photos of the dying Senator, photos that showed his clenched fist, holding Thane Cesar’s ripped-off clip-on tie, and held to his chest as he lay on his back, dying and waiting for medical attention.
In most news media photos, for more than 45 years, the photo in question has been cropped to show only RFK is shown close-up wearing a tie. Magazine, books and TV news all used close-ups that cropped out Robert Kennedy's clenched fist, gripping Thane Cesar’s tie on his chest.
Here is a quote from the report linked below
“Cesar has denied firing his weapon. He was interviewed within minutes of the shooting by John Marshall, a radio reporter, and said:
“I was there holding his arm when they shot him”
“As he (Kennedy) walked up, the guy pulled a gun and shot him.”
He said he was on Kennedy’s right side. He stated that he reached for his gun but “it was too late.”
"Police at the scene did not examine Cesar’s gun."
(Bold emphasis M*)
It took Roy Schaeffer and me decades of searching to find these rare photos, such as the one below, showing the entire scene after RFK released the clip-on tie from his grip to fall away on the ground.
I will have to search my archives for the before and after photos of Thane Caesar wearing the clip-on tie and walking behind before the shooting and the after photo showing him in shock, with is shirt torn open and the top button torn off, and most significantly, missing his clip-on tie, which he could not retrieve from Robert Kennedy’s clench..ed fist.
One of the reasons that I know more than most people do about Thane Caesar, aside from my studies of the films and the photo evidence, is that I had the privilege of hearing a secretly recorded interview with Thane Caesar himself, tricked into a discussion as he walked with the reporter who had targetted him as the potential killer and actually stalked him back to his home town, and casually made friendly contact enough over a short time, to get him to boast a bit about “what he saw.”
The interview I refer to above was uncovered and broadcast on Pacifica Radio by my colleague, investigative and radio journalist, Dr. Gary Null, in 1997.
Once the reporter gained his confidence, Thane Ceasar discussing his (Caesar’s) political affiliations in 1968. Now, consider this, beside being a hired as “rent-A-cop” security guard for RFK on the night of his assassination, what was Thane Cesar’s “day job”?
Here is very interesting information about Cesar, cited from the article linked above:
“He was rejected by the LAPD and became a plumber,”
And here is yet another intersting quotation:
Thane Cesar’s other job was ” a plumber at Lockheed Aircraft”!
I’m sure that title meant something like a “Watergate plumber.”
This detail revealed to me that Thane Cesar was part and parcel of the Military-Industrial Complex, and a member of its defense intelligence security apparatus (with a direct connection to the LAPD).
Thane Cesar’s prior connection to LAPD is fascinating, as is the fact that the LAPD did not check or test Cesar’s gun even though he claims thathe proffered it more than once. That sounds to me like he was “In Like Flynt” as a liason with the LAPD, which may have given him the lead (and a recommendation) for a job at Lockheed as, if one could believe it, as a “plumber”!
Now. during the secretly recorded interview, Thane Cesar, in describing his feelings about the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy, was candid and his voice, in its tones and vocabulary, made it abundantly clear that Thane Casesar’s personal feelings regarding the murder of RFK were like fond memories, and betrayed as such by his snarky comments about RFK, as well as, his giggles and laughter when discussing the unfolding of the shooting, the outcome of the event and its historic aftermath.
The shot to RFK’s head, according to L.A. Coroner Thomas Noguchi was fired from “point blank range,” in fact n farther than “1 to 1 1/2 inches away” and was so close to RFK that the gunfire left singed hair and skin, powder burns, gunpowder residue on RFK’s hair and clothing.
The other 3 shots struck RFK from below and rising up meaning that the shooter was lower than he was, and obviously had to have been fired fter he head shot and so had to come in as RFK was falling, meaning that the shooter was firing from below as he to (the shooter) was falling under the target of the assasination, Robert F. Kennedy.
Let’s study the Geometry of an Assassination
Thane Cesar is to be seen in photos walking close to RFK just seconds before the shooting. At first, Cesar was walking 1 to 2 feet behind the Senator, and with the press of the crowd in later photos, walking on his right side, and then not photographed but by his own admission, Cesar was walking alongside RFK, "holding his arm," and of course, with no other person between them; on the other side was Security Guard Graves, also holding Robert Kennedy's left arm.
Think of their postures and relative positions, with one "cop" on the right, and one "cop" on the left, each holding the arm of the soon-to-be victim.
Is this not exactly what we see "going down" in the Dallas PD basement when Jack Ruby shot Lee Harvey Oswald?
All that was missing were the handcuffs!
What better way to assassinate someone is there than to have 2 people holding the victim by both arms in the line of fire, or actually acting in secret as assassins themselves, with the perfect alibi and under the pretense of having been "guarding " the victim?
That was the "perfect cover," but first ...
FIRST, THERE MUST BE A DISTRACTION
A few seconds later, the shooting rang out …
Sirhan fired first, from 8 -10 feet away, initiating the proposed sequence of events described below.
Sirhan Srhan was NEVER closer than 6 feet from Robert Kennedy, Sirhan DID fire a weapon and, a very very important point:
The most importantant point is that the the autopsy shows that the head shot hit 1 and 1/2 inches from the skull and left burns and residue …
That alone eliminates Sirhan’s shots.
But the other 3 shots were fired from below RFK, with their trajectories going from low to high ...
The answer lies in the fact that Sirhan fired first (as a distraction) as Thane Cesar raised his gun into position. Cesar was able to get his first shot off, as RFK reacted quickly, both turning away from the front shots, and acting in self-defense, fending off at the real killer behind him.
In the struggle, Senator Kennedy succeeded in ripping off his assailant's tie while falling on Thane Cesar as he fired the last 3 shots upward into the Senator's upper rib cage with one shot passing through the upper body, exiting the front below the right clavicle, or collar bone.
In the struggle, the Senator's coat jacket was torn or cut at the yoke and left sleeve area. The right sleeve was intact, but Senator Kennedy's coat was torn at the top of the right shoulder region.
How can we explain the torn and rent fabric of the yoke and sleeve of the Senator's coat when Sirhan never touched him.?
Let’s ask ourselves, in a densely packed crowd, as there was moving about and pressing through the hotel kitchen, who could get into position so quickly as to fire a shot just 1 1/2 inches from the victim’s skull?
Here are 3 Essential Ingredients for a successful assassination are:
Motivation: The killer would have to have motivation for the killing, and being an extreme right wing, pro George Wallace member of the John Birch Society. Those views qualify Thane Cesar and he possessed the motivation for politcal assassin.
Means: Especially in a close quarters situation, as with Ruby shooting LHO, with the intended victim surrounded by a densely packed crowd, I would say it would have to be someone who had to gvien ready access to the victim and had to be prepositioned and walking closest to the victim.
Opportunity: What better way to insure opportunity to succeed in killing RFK than to preposition the killer right alongside the victim with the perfect cover story of “security guard”?
That security guard was Thane Cesar …
“a plumber at Lockheed Aircraft. ”
SIRHAN SIRHAN WAS NOT "PALESTINIAN"
Another detail that few people know is that Sirhan Sirhan is NOT a "Palestinian."
Though Sirhan born in Jerusalem, Sirhan’s family was a Maronite Christian family from Lebanon, and their immigration to the United States was sponsored by none other than Richard M. M. Nixon.
Yes, the same “Tricky Dick” who had employed Jack Ruby as his informant since 1947, and head of the executive action 5412 Committee during the Eisenhower administration, when he was Vice-President.
The 5412 Committee was the "assassination arm" of the National Security Council, which Col. Fletcher Prouty dubbed "The Secret Team,"
