We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

Man shot alongside RFK: ‘Sirhan, I forgive you'

Click here to access article from KGTV station in San Diego, California. (Commentary updated on 2/20/2016 at 9AM.)

A close friend of Bobbie Kennedy, Paul Schrade, who was also shot in the room where Kennedy was killed provided testimony at the recent parole hearing in favor of releasing Sirhan. Much like the assassination of President John Kennedy there have been considerable discrepancies in the evidence and government arguments related to the killing of Bobbie Kennedy and faithfully and unquestionably reported by corporate media. However more evidence keeps coming to a light and more people are questioning the government's absurd stand against any challenges to their position.

Among such people is author and filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan. Who.What.Why. offers his take in a 28 minute podcast contained in an article entitled "Sirhan: A “Manchurian Candidate” in the RFK Assassination?" that was posted today.
Author and filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan has spent 12 years examining how Sirhan might have been “programmed”, and by whom; scrutinizing the failures of the Los Angeles Police Department; bringing forth the sound and ballistic evidence showing 14 separate shots were fired; and publicizing the efforts by RFK friend Schrade to reopen the investigation. In this podcast, he talks to WhoWhatWhy’s Jeff Schectman about where the fact trail points.
The involvement of secret agencies of the government in many cases related to the assassinations of the Kennedys, Malcolm X, etc, the 9/11 event, and many of the "terrorist" events that followed is always very timidly questioned in spite of the plethora of factual evidence which contradicts the government's position and makes their agencies very suspect. I think that this phenomenon is reflected in this interview. 

This is likely because informed people know that to question the government, or the secret ruling class agencies that do the government's dirty work, too strongly or aggressively can result in very serious consequences: being reported to have committed "suicide" or having met with some fatal accident. The fact that such reports have little influence on the general public suggests to me that the power of the "big lie" and "willful ignorance" is as strong as ever in contemporary America.

Late update: Also read this article dated May 7, 2012 entitled "B.C.-based actress Nina Rhodes-Hughes speaks of Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination (with video)".
