A Lie Too Big to Fail: The Real History of the Assassination of Robert F. Kennedy

#ad
Feral House #ad - Lisa pease goes further than anyone else in proving who likely planned the assassination, who the assassination team members were, and why Kennedy was deemed such a threat that he had to be taken out before he became President of the United States.
