The Assassination of Robert Kennedy
A New World, Kennedy Style
Robert Kennedy was only 42 when he was assassinated and, having just won the California primary, was on his way to the Democratic nomination and likely the presidency. He would have begun withdrawing our troops from Vietnam and saved thousands of American lives. Hed already been talking with his aides about reopening the investigation into who killed his brother. I think its safe to say that, if hed lived, wed have a different kind of country than what weve become. Robert would have led a compassionate revolutionbecause he was a man not only of courage, but of compassion.
That night in the Ambassador Hotel, it seemed a pretty open-and-shut case that Sirhan was another lone nut. After all, he was wrestled to the ground after firing his .22-caliber revolver from a few feet in front of Kennedy. The police soon found a diary, in which Sirhan wrote over and over that RFK must die. We soon learned hed been stalking the senator, which again raises the question in my mind as to how come nobody in authority picked up on Sirhan as a potential threat. The curious thing, even at his trial, was that Sirhan had no memory of committing the killing. He still doesnt.
[ Jesse Ventura's Take ]
Sirhan didn't have enough rounds in his gun to make all the bullet holes found by police, so there was a second gunman firing from behind. Sirhan was hypnotically "programmed," using methods developed by the CIA, to take part in the murder. If the assassination of Robert Kennedy tells us anything, it's that even apparently obvious things are not always what they seem. Here we had what appeared to be an open-and-shut case with Sirhan Sirhan as the perpetrator. It's almost unthinkable, in polite society, to consider that his mind may have been manipulated by unscrupulous people using techniques out of the Dark Ages. But MK-ULTRA's existence is a proven fact, and should not be forgotten.
