G. Robert Blakey was in charge of the House Select Committee on Assassinations which investigated the JFK assassination in the late 1970’s. Author Gaeton Fonzi who wrote The Last Investigation, related how the HSCA was just another government whitewash from day one led by ‘friend of the Agency(the CIA)’ and organized crime affiliate, G. Robert Blakey.
According to the author, The HSCA was committed to 3 things: getting the report done on time in the arbitrary 2 year window, completing the report on budget, and making the report look ‘sexy,’ despite its lack of thoroughness and inability to raise many new questions about the case. Ultimately, the committee stated that ‘John F. Kennedy was probably assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. The committee was unable to identify the other gunmen or the extent of the conspiracy.’ Afterwards, Blakey got many of the records pertaining to the JFK assassination sealed from public viewing until at least 2017 with some items being off limits until 2039 when everyone associated with the JFK assassination will be long gone!
Author Michael Collins Piper mentioned in Final Judgement that Mr. Blakey was merely a paid, long term associate of Las Vegas/Cleveland gangster Moe Dalitz, and may have been taking orders from Mr. Dalitz in lying to Americans about the true facts of the JFK assassination as part of this business deal.
