The Murder of Robert Kennedy: 40 Years Later

Robert Kennedy, 1964 (WikiMedia)
[Editor's note: This essay was originally published a few years ago, so some temporal adverbs are no longer current.]

If you have relied upon the state controlled news media for your information about the murder of Senator Robert Kennedy (1925 - 1968) on June 5, 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel, you are about to be shocked with the evidence that Sirhan Sirhan (b. 1948) did not murder the presidential candidate. That treason required the same sweeping powers and wealth as that behind the murder of Kennedy's brother.

Forty years after the death of Senator Robert Kennedy, two new books appeared which demonstrate the falsity of the criminal case brought against Sirhan Sirhan by the courts of California and by the news media. The two books are An Open & Shut Case by Robert Joling and Phil Van Praag, and Who Killed Bobby by Shane O’Sullivan. If after reading these books you believe that Kennedy was killed by Sirhan Sirhan, we can only consider you a willful accessory after the fact in the disinformation wars about the late Senator’s death.

What’s New?

With apologies to Ms. Ronstadt, much has changed in the Kennedy case with the discovery of the Stanislaw Pruszynski recording made in the early morning of June 5, 1968 at the Ambassador Hotel at the time the bullets were fired at the Senator in the pantry. Sitting for years in the LAPD archives, it was recently discovered by happenstance and brought under the painstaking examination of Mr. Van Praag who subsequently uncovered 13 distinct shots. Even more interesting is his discovery that 2 pairs of shots occurred too rapidly to be explained by a single shooter.

One other interesting fact to emerge from the Van Praag analysis is that at least one shot had a frequency pitch which Sirhan’s gun could not have made. However, the gun which security guard Eugene Cesar carried was proven capable of producing the pitch. That gun is also the only one having rifling characteristics similar to the weapon Sirhan used.

For those who might be inclined to dismiss Mr Van Praag as an amateur, I would refer you to his book’s website which provides ample disclosure of his credentials to tackle this problem.

Another area which is better understood today than in 1968 is the severe mind control under which Sirhan operated. Much psychoanalysis of Sirhan reveals multiple personalities and nearly impossible to crack programming which has successfully blocked his memories of key events surrounding the assassination. We also know that the CIA funded – probably through tax payer dollars – the MKULTRA mind control program in order to develop Manchurian Candidate assassins whose work could be triggered by well defined signals such as a lady wearing a white dress with black polka dots.

This discovery, of course, raises all of kinds of fresh issues which were joined with all kinds of old issues known at the time of the trial of Sirhan Sirhan.

What’s Old?

At the time of the assassination and the subsequent trial, it was evident that there were problems with the bullet evidence. Everyone conceded that Sirhan’s weapon could hold no more than 8 rounds, but after counting the bullets, it was obvious that there were more than 8. The Los Angeles Police Department and the Prosecutors must have consulted the members of the Warren Commission to explain how 8 bullets could do so much damage.

On the other hand, the number of shots heard on the Pruszynski tape, and the number of bullets found during crime scene investigation and autopsies are much more in accord with the facts of the physical evidence. It thus seems most probable that 13 shots are indeed a more accurate number than those found during subsequent official investigation. This finding leads to the obvious question, if Sirhan’s gun held only 8 bullets, then from whose gun(s) came the other 5?

What is even more puzzling is how anyone could ignore the forensic evidence provided by Coroner Thomas Naguchi whose meticulous autopsy showed bullet holes in the back of the head coming from a sharp upward angle fired about 1” away from the skull. There are at least a dozen witnesses who state the Sirhan was 2-10 feet in front of Kennedy during the entire time of the shooting. Of course the official explanation would have to be the introduction of a magic bullet which ricocheted off some object which wounded the Senator. Where have we heard that type of explanation before?

Finally there is well attested witness of the Polka Dot Dress Lady who fled from the scene of the crime announcing that she and her male companion had killed Kennedy. This lead was never followed up or addressed adequately at trial. Instead some campaign worker, who could only fit the description by total suspension of disbelief, was trotted out as the famous lady in a case of mistaken identity.

What’s 2 + 2

With apologies to my math teachers, these two pieces of evidence provide a prima facie case that Sirhan Sirhan was not the murderer of the Senator from New York. Sirhan is a rather problematic witness given that he has been caught in a number of lies, but that could be attributable to the extreme duress he is under and the severe destruction of his mind via hypnotic programming.

We have powerful witness of the LAPD intimidating witnesses and obstructing justice. There are innumerable examples, but one reported by the Mary Ferrell foundation is compelling:

‘Sandy Serrano, one of the prime witnesses to the girl in the polka-dotted dress and a male companion, was browbeaten by Hernandez into retracting her story. The following exchange is typical of the treatment given Serrano in lengthy interview sessions:

Hernandez: "I think you owe it to Senator Kennedy, the late Senator Kennedy, to come forth, to be a woman about this. If he, and you don't know and I don't know whether he's a witness right now in this room watching what we're doing in here. Don't shame his death by keeping this thing up. I have compassion for you. I want to know why. I want to know why you did what you did. This is a very serious thing."

Serrano: "I seen those people!"

Hernandez: "No, no, no, no, Sandy. Remember what I told you about that: you can't say you saw something when you didn't see it..."

This treatment is outrageous and is further proof of our thesis that we live in a totalitarian right winged dictatorship regardless of which party is in power. This police department uses pure Gestapo tactics to coerce false testimony and psychologically terrorize witnesses.

We also know that Sirhan was poorly represented at trial – nay he was sabotaged by men working for the criminals who murdered Kennedy.

Our Conclusion

With apologies to no one, we firmly believe that Senator Robert Kennedy was fired at by Sirhan Sirhan but that someone else, possible one of his body guards, fired the lethal rounds in his skull from behind. We believe that the murder was very carefully planned by the same Oligarchy and CIA elements which killed President John F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr, and who attempted to kill President Ronald Reagan in March 1981.

The very fables used to frighten the people of the u.s.a. regarding the'totalitarian state' that was the USSR, are an apt description of the u.s.a. since Nov. 22nd, 1963. And then some. The people of the u.s.a. did not care to demand justice then and they're not going to demand it now. I guess they must be happy to be a part and parcel of the greatest purveyor of violence, theft and death in the world for the last 50 years. I'm not.
One would think that if capitalism was any good as a business model, it would be able to compete in the world in a profitable manner without all the cheating, killing, exploiting and war necessary for it to do it's thing.
