  • RFK’s killer, Sirhan Sirhan, denied parole despite a Kennedy confidant’s call for his release

    After decades of investigation, Paul Schrade has no doubt about the identity of the man who shot him in the head shortly after midnight on June 5, 1968, in the kitchen of the Ambassador Hotel: It was Sirhan Sirhan, the same gunman convicted of assassinating Robert F. Kennedy. And yet, when Schrade came face to face with Sirhan for the first time in nearly 50 years, at a parole hearing in San Diego on Wednesday, he argued that the notorious gunman wasn't Kennedy's killer. But the panel wasn't swayed and Sirhan was denied parole for the 15th time, according to...

    The man who fatally shot presidential candidate Robert Kennedy nearly half a century ago faces a parole board in California. Sirhan Sirhan, 71, will have his 15th such hearing at the Richard J Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego on Wednesday. The Palestinian-born Sirhan is serving a life sentence for opening fire on the political scion at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles on 5 June 1968. He has denied having any recollection of the killing, but has also said he targeted Kennedy because of his support for Israel. Sirhan was last denied parole in 2011, when the board ruled...

    A few months ago, I took some flack in these quarters for suggesting that, his annoying liberalism aside, Chris Matthews is in his heart an American patriot. That same patriotic proclivity displayed itself tonight. On the anniversary of 9-11, Matthews profusely praised his guest Rudy Giuliani for his leadership on that day. And in a spontaneous aside, Matthews called RFK's assassin, the Palestinian Sirhan B. Sirhan, "the first terrorist." Can you imagine Rachel Maddowor Barack Obama for that matterdoing the same?

    This year marks not only the 50th anniversary of the shooting of John F. Kennedy but also the 45th anniversary of the shooting of Robert F. Kennedy, which occurred in June 1968. Was there a common source motivating the assassins of both Kennedysthat is, Lee Harvey Oswald and Sirhan Sirhan? That renowned political philosopher Mick Jagger speculated on a source. I shouted out Who killed the Kennedys? asks the lyrics in the 1968 song by The Rolling Stones. When, after all, it was you and me. The song was titled, Sympathy for the Devil. It was, The Rolling Stones suggested,...

    June 5, 1968: Assassination of Robert Kennedy (RFK) by Arab "Palestinian" Sirhan Sirhan, motivated by clear Arab racism as explained at that time.[*]. [It was the first Arab terror attack on US soil]. His "Christian" family was of a 'Muslim atmosphere,'[*] and he was indoctrinated into anti-Jewish hatred [and Arab victimhood] through Jordanian textbooks. The texbooks demonize Jews as "animals," etc., and call to "liberate" Muslim 'holy places,' and Muslim land. He said he was inspired by a teacher who spoke about the Arab warrior Saladin.[*]

    This past March, 42 years into his life prison sentence for assassinating Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, Sirhan Sirhan stood in front of a parole board and repeated the same thing he had been saying at parole hearings for decades: that he had no memory of the shooting or his subsequent trial and confession of guilt. For the 14th time, his application was denied. Two weeks ago, Sirhan's attorneys filed the latest in a series of appeals that aim to get Sirhan back in front of a judge to correct what they call "an egregious miscarriage of justice." Sirhan, they argued,...

    LOS ANGELES (AP) Lawyers representing convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan argue in new court documents that a bullet was switched in evidence at his trial and new forensic tests show he is innocent of the 1968 killing of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. The attorneys are seeking to overturn Sirhan's conviction.

    Convicted assassin Sirhan Sirhan was manipulated by a seductive girl in a mind control plot to shoot Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, and his bullets did not kill the presidential candidate, lawyers for Sirhan said in new legal papers. The documents filed this week in federal court and obtained by The Associated Press detail extensive interviews with Sirhan during the past three years, some done while he was under hypnosis. The papers point to a mysterious girl in a polka-dot dress as the controller who led Sirhan to fire a gun in the pantry of the Ambassador Hotel. But the documents...

    William Ayers, 1960s radical and retired University of Illinois at Chicago professor, said Wednesday any suggestion he dedicated a book to the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy was fiction invented by right-wing bloggers. "There's not a shred of truth in it," he said. William Ayers said any suggestion he dedicated a book to the man who assassinated Robert Kennedy was fiction. His words came as the UIC Senate sent a letter to the university's board of trustees asking it to reconsider a September vote denying Ayers emeritus status. "We believe that the possibility that this vote will cast a chill...

    Academia: In an era when our universities have become liberal re-education camps, '60s radical William Ayers has been denied professor emeritus status. For one brief instance, academia shows a spine. It was, no pun intended, a bombshell. Ayers, a professor at the University of Illinois, Chicago, and co-founder of the anti-war group Weather Underground, was denied the honor he requested for himself after a passionate speech by board chairman Chris Kennedy, son of the late Sen. Robert Kennedy. Kennedy said he could not confer the title "to a man whose body of work includes a book dedicated in part to...

    MSNBC's Chris Matthews has said some things that would make your scratch your head - like getting a thrill up his leg from a speech given by Barack Obama. However, this one will really make you wonder what he was thinking. On his Nov. 9 broadcast of "Hardball," in an interview with Zuhdi Jasser, president of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy, Matthews compared the incident of Maj. Nidal M. Hasan at Ft. Hood to Sirhan Sirhan's 1968 assassination of Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. "You know, I have a hard time with this because people like Sirhan Sirhan, who is...

    It couldn't have been easy for Bill Ayers to keep quiet while the McCain campaign tarred him as the Obama's best friend, the terrorist. Unfortunately, the silence was too good to last. On Saturday's New York Times op-ed page, he announced that "it's finally time to tell my true story." Like his memoir, Fugitive Days , "The Real Bill Ayers" is a sentimentalized, self-justifying whitewash of his role in the weirdo violent fringe of the 1960s-70s antiwar left. "I never killed or injured anyone, "Ayers writes. "In 1970, I co-founded the Weather Underground, an organization that was created after an...

    While they were fugitives from justice, Sen. Barack Obama's friend, associate, and political mentor William Ayers and three of his radical Weather Underground co-conspirators, including his wife Bernardine Dohrn, dedicated their 1974 book Prairie Fire to a rogue's gallery that included Sirhan Sirhan, who assassinated Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in Los Angeles in 1968. Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity brought this fact to national attention on their respective radio and television programs on October 30. As Ayers and company wrote in the book: We are a guerilla organization. We are communist women and men, underground in the United States for...
