Just a little tidbit of information to throw out there- I don't know how many knew this already, but JFK (or his casket) was exhumed, in March of 1967, while Robert Kennedy was still alive.Ostensibly, this was done to move the casket about 20 feet away, to it's "permanent gravesite".All 3 newsmagazines reported on it. One of them said it was done "unannounced in advance and carried out in conditions of military secrecy". The thing that struck me the most about this is that this is the exact time frame that James Files remembers hearing Shackley say that
JFK was buried at sea. Could JFK have actually been buried in November
'63, then exhumed in March '67 on Robert Kennedy's orders for a second
autopsy and reburied at sea? Just a little speculation on my part.
The fact remains that something (an empty casket?) was exhumed in March,1967.

Sometimes we get too wrapped up in our passions of those events in Dallas and forget the human aspects of the man.
