Paul Schrade (RFK Friend & Ambassador Hotel Shooting Victim/Eyewitness) Speaks On Behalf Of Sirhan Sirhan At Parole Hearing

THIS... is a Remarkable Event!

Before today, I'd never known that five other people were shot during the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in the lobby of the Ambassador Hotel
(It happened before I was born and only R.F.K. was mentioned in school).

Even so, having done my own research, I'd already figured out that Sirhan Sirhan did not shoot Robert F. Kennedy.

I'm not a R.F.K. 'conspiracy theorist'. It's all simple logic:
Fact:  Sirhan Sirhan was standing before and facing Senator Kennedy, about 2-3 feet away from him.
Fact: The bullets that struck and killed the Senator left powder burns on the back of his neck, proving that the actual assassin's gun's muzzle was at point-blank range and behind Senator Kennedy.
So, although, Fact: Sirhan Sirhan did shoot five people on that horrible day.Fact: Senator Robert F. Kennedy was not one of them.

There's a plethora of additional evidence to support this conclusion (please see the article linked below).   Yet, somehow, none of it was mentioned - let alone entered into evidence - at Sirhan Sirhan's trial.

The Result?  The authorities had a nice, tidy, open-and-shut, we-caught-the-bad-guy, wrap-it-with-a-bow case.  

Another Result:  After spending nearly 50 years in prison, the Parole Commission is still expecting Sirhan Sirhan to show great remorse for something that he didn't do (and, apparently, still doesn't remember).
MK-Ultra, Much?(And, before you scoff, please, do some research.)

At the very least, Sirhan Sirhan was a pawn, a diversionary tactic, a patsy and - most importantly - a convenient scapegoat.

At worst - and very likely - he was yet another victim of covert government/military experimentation.

God knows, he wouldn't be the first.  Nor is he the last.

Here's another tidbit I learned:  There's an audio recording from the Ambassador Hotel lobby on that day that proves a total of thirteen gunshots rang out.

Wait for it...
Sirhan Sirhan's gun only held a maximum of 
eight bullets.

And, he didn't reload.

Paul Schrade at Sirhan Sirhan Parole Hearing

"Sirhan Sirhan, the alleged killer of Robert Kennedy, was denied parole again at a hearing this past February. Over 70 years old now, Sirhan has seen many parole hearings come and go.
What made this one unusual was the presence of Paul Schrade, 91 years old, who in 1968 was labor chairman of RFK's aborted presidential campaign, and a good friend of Senator Kennedy. Schrade was also one of the victims of the shooting in the pantry at the Ambassador Hotel.
But Schrade was not there in the typical role of a victim at a convicted killer's parole hearing. Instead, Schrade used the hearing as a forum to challenge the court's verdict in the case against Sirhan, to lay out facts which contradict it, and even to apologize to the man who remains in prison for a crime he claims he cannot remember.
The entire dramatic hearing is captured in a 212-page transcript, now available online here at MFF (Mary Ferrell Foundation) courtesy of author, filmmaker, and advocate Shane O'Sullivan. Paul Schrade himself also sent us a copy of the transcript."
