Dominici & Kennedy Affairs

Affaires Dominici & Kennedy -
Comments in English: Dominici & Kennedy cold Cases see here


L'affaire dite Dominici est traitée à fond, sans se perdre dans les détails techniques, ce glossaire étant un schéma explicatif.
L'affaire Kennedy aborde les pistes les plus récentes, mais renvoie plutôt aux ouvrages spécialisés.
Ces deux "affaires" ont des points communs :

- ce sont des conséquences et elles s'inscrivent dans le contexte de la guerre froide (1945-1989)
- l'intervention plutôt lourde des gouvernements fait obstacle à la résolution de ces affaires.
- la solution apparente repose sur la mise en cause d'un seul et unique bouc émissaire :

a) Lee Harvey Oswald, bien aidé par une "balle magique" dans le cas Kennedy
b) Gaston Dominici dans l'affaire appelée abusivement de son nom alors que les Dominici n'ont rien à voir avec "leur" dite affaire.

Commentaire: il n'y a pas là de jugement de valeur. Si objectivement ces détournements de la justice pouvaient se concevoir sinon être tolérés PENDANT la guerre froide, il n'y a plus de raisons, après la fin de cette période historique, a fortiori après l'an 2000, de cacher la vérité.

- Les deux affaires ont été mises au jour en France, nettement par rapport aux prédécesseurs, par William Reymond, ses ouvrages étant les sources principales.
"L'Affaire Dominici, les assassins retrouvés" ed. Flammarion


These two cases seemingly totaly different have some common points :

- They are direct consequences and are situated in the "Cold War"
(the U.S.S.R. has nothing to do with the assassination of Kennedy, it's an internal Affair.)
- The governments have an heavy influence on the treatment, the inquiry and the trial.
In the Kennedy Case, the trial is replaced by the Warren Commission, completely in order of the Government.
- The apparent solution for the public is the patsy, Gaston Dominici and Lee Harvey Oswald, who are sacrified on the altar of the truth.
