Who Really Killed Bobby Kennedy?

With the new Hollywood film “Bobby” released about the assassination of Robert Kennedy questions come up once again about who really killed Bobby Kennedy.

Was it the lone gunman Sirhan Sirhan or was it CIA operatives behind it? Some have even named the mafia as being possibly involved. Personally I have never believed it was the lone gunman Sirhan, Sirhan.

Sirhan Sirhan, a 24 year old Palestinian was arrested as the lone assassin and notebooks at his house seemed to incriminate him. Even under hypnosis, he couldn’t remember the shooting and the defence psychiatrists in his case concluded that he was in a trance at the time.
Witnesses placed Sirhan’s gun several feet in front of Kennedy but the autopsy showed the fatal shot came from one inch behind. A world authority on hypnosis at Columbia University, Dr. Herbert Spiegel. believes that Sirhan may have been hypnotically programmed to act as a decoy for the real assassin.

Now new video and photographic evidence that puts three senior CIA operatives at the scene of Robert Kennedy’s assassination has been brought to light.

Evidence was shown in a report by Shane O’Sullivan, broadcast on BBC Newsnight. It reveals that the operatives and four unidentified associates were at the Ambassador Hotel, Los Angeles in the moments before and after the shooting on 5 June, 1968. The CIA had no domestic jurisdiction and some of the officers were based in South-East Asia at the time, with no reason to be in Los Angeles.

Kennedy had just won the California Democratic primary on an anti-War ticket and was set to challenge Nixon for the White House when he was shot in a kitchen pantry.


Are you convinced by the evidence in the report? Click on this link to see the video report This report is the result of a three-year investigation by filmmaker Shane O’Sullivan. He reveals new video and photographs show three senior CIA operatives at the hotel. So what were they doing there?

Three of these men have been positively identified as senior officers who worked together in 1963 at JMWAVE, the CIA’s Miami base for its Secret War on Castro.
David Morales was Chief of Operations and once told friends: “I was in Dallas when we got the son of a bitch and I was in Los Angeles when we got the little bastard.” He would be referring to former President John F. Kennedy in Dallas and Robert Kennedy in Los Angeles.

Gordon Campbell was Chief of Maritime Operations and George Joannides was Chief of Psychological Warfare Operations.

Joannides was called out of retirement in 1978 to act as the CIA liaison to the Congressional investigation into the JFK assassination. Now, we see him at the Ambassador Hotel the night a second Kennedy is assassinated.


There have been calls for a fresh investigation into the shooting. November 20 would have been Bobby Kennedy’s 81st birthday. In Los Angeles, Paul Schrade was walking behind Robert Kennedy at the Ambassador when Kennedy was shot and believes this new evidence merits fresh investigation: “It seems very strange to me that these guys would be at a Kennedy celebration. What were they doing there? And why were they there? It’s our obligation as friends of Bob Kennedy to investigate this.”

Ed Lopez, a former Congressional investigator who worked with Joannides in 1978, says:
“I think the key people at the CIA need to go back to anybody who might have been around back then, bring them in and interview them, and ask – is this Gordon Campbell? Is this George Joannides?”

This report was shown on Newsnight on Monday, 20 November, 2006.

It is my hope that the truth will come out as to who really assasinated Robert Kennedy. Justice is overdue for this remarkable American. He walked tall among men.

Bobby you left us too soon. You are gone but never forgotten.

I would be interested in hearing what you think, so feel free to post your take on things.
