French President on Ford and JFK Truth, 2013
« on: November 27, 2013, 03:27:46 PM »

Here's a link to the article of 21 Nov., '13 in which former President of France, Valéry Giscard d'Estaing describes his candid conversation with US President Gerald Ford on the truth about JFK:

This is what is being said by bilingual members of the forum where the link was posted:
Valéry Giscard d'Estaing says that Ford told him that the WC was certain about the fact that the assasination was organised but they could not find out which organisation was behind the crime. So Valéry Giscard d'Estaing believes in a conspiracy. He says that the killing of Kennedy was the killing of a dream.

Giscard says he was a young Ministre des Finances in the De Gaulle government at the time of the assassination . He learned of the murder by a bystander while coming back from his office. Giscard said he knew very well JFK who was a model for him. That he arrived that JFK often gets his advice on some economic matters like inflation on some occasion (likely official visits in USA). JFK was young as his team and their will was to change the world. For Giscard it was not only the man who was assassinated but also his dream. Some years later Giscard became president  ( in 1974 like Gerard Ford )and in one official visit he asked the question at Ford : "I know you were a WC investigator, what about the assassination?" I think Ford was not prepared to such a direct question  as he replied that their first conclusion was that ............the murder was organized and not an "isolated" crime. In other words Giscard is saying us that in the first conclusion of Ford and WC  they didn't get in the "Lone Nut" theory.
From this conversation  Giscard made his thought that some organization was behind the crime. An organization which hated Kennedy and decided to get rid of him.

Conclusion : Giscard and Ford believed in a conspiracy.
Our future may lie beyond our vision, but it is not completely beyond our control. It is the shaping impulse of America that neither fate nor nature nor the irresistible tides of history, but the work of our own hands, matched to reason and principle, that will determine our destiny.

This burst of candor from Ford reminds me of the story from January 1975 when he held a White House luncheon for the editors of the New York Times. Someone asked why Ford had picked such a conservative and defense minded panel to make up the Rockefeller Commission. The president said he needed people who would not stray from the straight and narrow. If they did, they could stumble upon matters that might hurt the national interest. The editor asked "Like what?" Ford replied with, "Like assassinations!" (Schorr, p. 144) Ford added that this was off the record. But reporter Daniel Schorr deduced that since the Rockefeller Commission was investigating domestic matters, Ford must have meant American assassinations.

It still seems like a risky thing to tell a foreign leader, who could have blabbed it to the press back in the day.
