JFK assassination: Kennedy’s mother Rose’s ‘agony’ after loss of her son, 60 years ago – BBC News

Published

on



To mark the 60th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s death, revisit two exclusive BBC interviews with the US president’s mother, Rose, who movingly details the family’s intense pride and sorrow.

The profound loss Rose felt at her son John’s death would be reflected by the shock and grief that would play out across the US, to the extent that a whole generation would be able to remember exactly where they were when they heard that he had been shot.

When JFK’s life was cut short so shockingly, it sparked a wave of grief and mourning that left an indelible mark on the consciousness of the nation.

    Air Force One tapes on Nov 22 1963 reveal a telephone call the new President made to JFK's mother. The connection was bad with loud static and buzzing sounds. Mrs Rose Kennedy kept saying 'Hello Hello'. Once LBJ got connected and uttered 'Hello Mrs. Kennedy', that amazing courageous old woman replied 'Yes? Yes Mr. President?' ~ I was so moved with tears by her response

    Living until the age of 105, burying her children with one of the them having his brain blown off in-front of the nation was definitely a hard thing bear.

    She was no stronger than many women who buried children. My sis-in-law buried all three of her children. My dads first cousin buried three of her children. Rose didn’t raise her children, her nanny/ governess did.

    Rose and Teddy were very close, they had real similarities, for instance in their strong faith, in their need to always see the bright side of the life, no matter what, they had to endure the loss of Joe Jr who was Teddy godfather, Jack and Bobby, and yet they could always have a laugh and sing songs with the family, while Rose played the piano, their faith seemed to be a key element.

    I'm watching JFK's mother speak for the first time. I truly felt the woman's pain deep in my heart, from miles away. It's really not easy at all. It is a very painful experience for a mother to see her son, of whom she was proud of his achievements, die in this way. Imagine, your son became the president of the USA. He is young and happily married. However, in front of the eyes of the whole world, he is brutally murdered as a result of an unknown assassination attempt. Moreover, the real perpetrators can never be identified, tried and punished. There's really no explanation for this. This scandal is happening in one of the most modern countries in the world.

    It's important to note that of her 9 children, she outlived 4 of them. By 1973, she had buried all but one of her sons. This woman had tremendous strength

    Her grief is so obvious. She did what she had to do through her religious convictions. She was brought up in politics, so she was perfect to marry Joe Kennedy. Kennedy did what he wanted to do and kept things from her. He ran a tight ship and was ruthless. Rose prayed and prayed yet could not undo damage . Rest in peace dear lady .

    Absolutely such a lovely mother Rose Kennedy🌹❤
    Truly hits home when she spoke of 'Jack' being here, rather than ever being a President…heartbreaking. She made sure her children grew up healthy as could be, well mannered, educated and truly honorable young ppl. Sad that fate took it away. And for President Kennedy's situation, a murder from the highest element of powers that be in America and Europe too. Rose was not lying when she said JFK would do the most honorable and truest mind for all ppl in life. Nevermind his personal life due to medical etc. JFK was a good true man. And today, I'm saying what a shame he didn't crush and scatter some secret societies, "to the wind" as it's a pivotal time in history when the power of a not so secret cia had completely transfered and cemented their place in Government, where they absolutely have no place. Rest Easy Kennedy family..❤🙏🏻🙏🏻

    Her strength is admirable. From her husband's infidelity to losing her children, she continued to stand firm.

    So sorry for your losses of your children who was killed by the murderers. Your two sons, and loss of Congress Ted Kennedy who died of cancer in his own life.

Iran and UAE drones used in Sudan war, evidence suggests | BBC News

Published

on



Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been accused of violating a UN arms embargo by supplying drones to the warring sides of the Sudan civil war.

A BBC investigation has documented the Sudanese Army’s use of types of Iranian drones in its war against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). Evidence has also emerged that the RSF received modified commercial drones from the UAE.

Foreign-made drones prominently changed the course of the war on the ground since their appearance in 2023.

Sudan’s armed forces have been fighting the RSF for the last 14 months.

The BBC has contacted the Sudanese army, Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Qeshm Fars Air to comment on the allegations that Iranian drones are being used in the conflict but has not had a response.
