Kick a corpse, why don'tcha?:
Sirhan Sirhan claims CIA brainwashed him into killing RFK.

Publication: National Examiner
Date: 4 April 2011

I have recently commended the low rent Examiner on a new kinder and gentler editorial policy. To be clear, they haven't gone all sweetness and light, but they are not going to finish this review period in a virtual tie for meanest tabloid, as they are falling behind their richer Wicked Step Sisters, the Globe and the Enquirer.

For example, there is nothing nice about this story that Sirhan Sirhan is now claiming it was the CIA that brainwashed him into killing Robert F. Kennedy back in 1968.

And more than that, there's probably nothing true about it either, other than being Sirhan's current claim communicated through his lawyer earlier this month.

I wouldn't be so sure of that (the truthiness of S.S.'s claim). Read the James Ellroy assassination trilogy, which are ridiculously well-researched, and he leaves you with that impression too.

I guess ol' S.S. has been listening to Dave Emory and people like that.

I wonder if Dave Emory podcasts now, or if he's already aware of the CIA/Apple/Banco Ambrosiano connections and so avoids the evil technology.

(p.s. I made that shit up.)

I still remember Rob Francis talking about getting stuck in an elevator with Dave, who accused Rob of being an MI-5 agent sent to kill him.

Ah, good times!

Who cares who influenced him to kill RFK? He did it and he should have fried for it.
