Update: Naked sexy women on a yacht with JFK and Ted Kennedy?

from www.sfgate.com – Did President John F. Kennedy and Ted Kennedy hang out on a yacht with a bevy of naked women – topless and bottomless – in August of 1956? And if so, why wasn’t the photo discovered until now?

In perhaps its most incredible find yet, TMZ.com has revealed a photo that, if universally confirmed, could have altered the course of World History.

The photo allegedly shows John F. Kennedy catching some rays on a yacht (he’s said to be on the left) while above and around him are naked women. Some of them are skinny-dipping; others lounging. It looks like Hugh Hefner’s Playboy dream. TMZ also links the photo to reported accounts that then-Senator JFK and his brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers had taken a two-week Mediterraneanboat boating trip where they reportedly entertained a number of women.

But is it real? TMZ.com claims it is:

TMZ had multiple experts examine the photo — all say there is no evidence the picture was Photoshopped. The original print — which is creased — was scanned and examined for evidence of inconsistent lighting, photo composition and other forms of manipulation. The experts all concluded the photo appears authentic.

Professor Jeff Sedlik, a forensic photo expert, says the print appears to be authentic. Sedlik says the photo is printed on paper consistent with what was used in the 1950s. The emulsion on the surface of the print has numerous cracks — the result of aging and handling….

Forensic analyst Sedlik superimposed an image of Kennedy taken at the Democratic National Convention in August 1956, just days before Kennedy went on the Mediterranean cruise. Sedlik says the features from the two pics almost precisely sync up. TMZ has also had two Kennedy biographers examine the photo — they also believe JFK is in the picture.

TMZ.com claims that they got the photo from the son of a “man who owned a car dealership on the East Coast” who would brag about it. But here’s my questions: first, who took the photo? Second, how did they come to be in position to take it? Third, how did such a controversial photo lay undiscovered for so long? Fourth, who was really on the boat? Fifth, if it’s real, who was instrumental in arranging for it not to be discovered?

I’m sure you can think of even more questions than I’ve offered.

Stay tuned.

from www.tmz.com -TMZ has obtained a never-before published photograph which appears to show John F. Kennedy on a boat filled with naked women — it’s a photo that could have altered world events.

We believe the photo was taken in the mid-1950s. It shows two naked women jumping off the boat and two more naked women sunning on the top deck. Just below the top deck — a man appearing to be John F. Kennedy is laying on a deck, sunning himself.

There are numerous articles and books on President John F. Kennedy which mention a 2-week, Mediterranean boating trip that JFK — then a Senator — took in August, 1956, with his brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers. The trio reportedly entertained a number of women on the yacht. Jackie Kennedy was pregnant at the time and was rushed to the hospital while JFK was on the boat. Doctors performed an emergency C-section, but the infant was stillborn.

Sedlik says the features from the two pics almost precisely sync up. TMZ has also had two Kennedy biographers examine the photo — they also believe JFK is in the picture.

The photo was eventually given to a man who owned a car dealership on the East coast. The man kept it in a drawer for years, and would brag to friends he had an image of JFK on a boat with naked women. The man died 10 years ago and one of his sons inherited the photo.

Had the photo surfaced when John F. Kennedy ran for President in 1960, it could have torpedoed his run, and changed world history.
