Sirhan Sirhan

December 12, 2011

exception when the factual narrative is wrong – “…Parole hearings are typically not the platform to introduce new evidence, or retry a case. Boards typically want to hear convicts express remorse for their crimes, not deny remembering them. But Pepper says “There is an exception when the factual narrative is wrong. Counsel has the right to correct those facts. I don’t know why prior counsel never did that. I am going to clarify the record.” A spokeswoman for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said she cannot comment on the specifics of Sirhan’s case, but parole board hearings generally “are not to decide guilt or innocence.” “The board accepts as fact the guilty verdict,” said Terry Thornton. “The purpose is to determine if or when an inmate can return to society.”…Pepper successfully won a 1999 civil case against the city of Memphis, in which he argued Memphis police were involved in the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., for which James Earl Ray, the only suspect was convicted in 1969. Pepper said Sirhan had been examined by Daniel Brown, a psychologist on the faculty of Harvard Medical School, who found he was “easily hypnotized” and was not faking his inability to remember the crime. Brown was travelling and could not be reached by ABCNews.com for comment. “[Sirhan] has whole blocks in his mind that are missing,” Pepper said. “He doesn’t remember anything…” (Assassin’s Lawyer Says Sirhan Sirhan Was Brainwashed (Video))

a female running from the hotel – “…For the first time, Sirhan said under hypnosis that on a cue from the girl he went into “range mode” believing he was at a firing range and seeing circles with targets in front of his eyes. “I thought that I was at the range more than I was actually shooting at any person, let alone Bobby Kennedy,” Sirhan was quoted as saying during interviews with Daniel Brown, a Harvard University professor and expert in trauma memory and hypnosis. He interviewed Sirhan for 60 hours with and without hypnosis, according to the legal brief. Sandi Gibbons, a spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney, said prosecutors were unaware of the legal filing and could not comment. The story of the girl has been a lingering theme in accounts of the events just after midnight on June 5, 1968, when Kennedy was gunned down in the hotel pantry after claiming victory in the California Democratic presidential primary. Witnesses talked of seeing such a female running from the hotel shouting, “We shot Kennedy.” But she was never identified, and amid the chaos of the scene, descriptions were conflicting. Through the years, Sirhan has claimed no memory of shooting Kennedy and said in the recent interviews that his presence at the hotel was an accident, not a planned destination. Under hypnosis, he remembered meeting the girl that night and becoming smitten with her. He said she led him to the pantry. “I am trying to figure out how to hit on her…. That’s all that I can think about,” he says in one interview cited in the documents. “I was fascinated with her looks …. She never said much. It was very erotic. I was consumed by her. She was a seductress with an unspoken unavailability…” (Sirhan Sirhan and His Account of Delta Programming Mind Control)

to protect the true conspirators – “…Sirhan was programmed at a racing stables in Santa Ana, California by two CIA mind-control specialists — one of them a priest. A co-worker of Sirhan at the stables was Thomas Bremer, whose mind-controlled brother Arthur, shot Governor George Wallace in 1972. Not many miles from the stables is a Synagogue used for mind-control purposes. Its rabbi is a ‘former’ member of US Naval Intelligence…Such police corruption is exemplified by the LAPD’s complicity in the assassination of Robert Kennedy, It is well known within the ranks of the LAPD that mind-controlled patsy Sirhan Sirhan, in keeping with the patsy arrested for the murder of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzak Rabin, FIRED BLANKS, in order to misdirect the attention of eyewitnesses. At least one police officer’s eyewitness report was re-written by a senior officer in order to protect the true conspirators. Moreover, police radio communication was disrupted (as in the Princess Diana assassination) thereby preventing the broadcasting of other suspect’s descriptions…Both Frank Sinatra and CIA mind-control programmer William Joseph Bryan, Jr. (aka William Joseph Bryon, and William Jenning Bryan III, etc.) were members of the Tommy Dorsey Band. Bryan programmed people while he was with the Air Force as Chief of Medical Survival Training which was the Air Force’s covert mind-control section. Later he opened up his own hypnotherapy Institute on Sunset Strip in Hollywood where he programmed some people in the Illuminati who are actors. He also was the person who programmed Sirhan Sirhan to be involved in the Robert Kennedy assassination…” (Sirhan Sirhan)

Sirhan Bishara Sirhan (Arabic, born March 19, 1944) is a Palestinian who was convicted for the assassination of United States Senator Robert F. Kennedy. He is serving a life sentence at Pleasant Valley State Prison, California…Sirhan was a Jordanian citizen in Jerusalem born to a Palestinian Christian family. When he was 12, his family emigrated, moving briefly to New York, and then to California. He attended Eliot Junior High School (now known as Charles W. Eliot Middle School) in Altadena, California, John Muir High School and Pasadena City College. Sirhan’s father Bishara was characterized as a stern man who often beat his sons harshly, and shortly after the family’s move to California, he would return alone to the Middle East. As an adult, he changed church denominations several times, joining Baptist and Seventh-day Adventist churches, and also allegedly dabbling in the occult. He was employed as a stable boy in 1965 at the Santa Anita race track in Arcadia, California…In a 1980 transcripted interview with M.T. Mehdi, Sirhan claimed his actions were fueled by liquor and anger. He then complained that the parole board was not taking these “mitigating” circumstances into account when they continually denied his parole. On May 10, 1982, Sirhan told the parole board: “I sincerely believe that if Robert Kennedy were alive today, I believe he would not countenance singling me out for this kind of treatment. I think he would be among the first to say that, however horrible the deed I committed 14 years ago was, that it should not be the cause for denying me equal treatment under the laws of this country.” A parole hearing for Sirhan is now scheduled every five years. On March 2, 2011, after 42 years in prison, Sirhan’s 14th parole hearing was held, with Sirhan represented by his current attorney, William Francis Pepper. At his parole hearing, Sirhan testified that he continues to have no memory of the assasination nor of any details of his 1969 trial and confession. His parole was denied on the basis that Sirhan still does not understand the full ramifications of his crime. (Wikepedia).
