Who killed Bobby Kennedy?

In 1968, a high school kid, I was poised to volunteer for the Presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy. My dreams, and those of many in my generation were shattered on June 5 when he was gunned down in a Los Angeles hotel, a mere 2 months after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. A year after the "Summer of Love," and four-and-a-half years after the the killing of JFK in Dallas, the loss of these men to the tar pits of violence that run below the surface veneer of the American Dream would have rippling effects that last to this day. The sixties will one day be recognized for the true benchmark that it was in American history and culture - the start of the unraveling.

Shane O' Sullivan is an independent researcher who has made a startling discovery - that three CIA agents were present in Los Angeles on the day Bobby was murdered - not only present, butin the crowd at the campaign rally site. Moreover, the three agents had every reason to hate the Kennedys.

"Three years ago, I started writing a screenplay about the assassination of Robert Kennedy, caught up in a strange tale of second guns and 'Manchurian candidates' (as the movie termed brainwashed assassins). As I researched the case, I uncovered new video and photographic evidence suggesting that three senior CIA operatives were behind the killing. I did not buy the official ending that Sirhan acted alone, and started dipping into the nether-world of 'assassination research,' crossing paths with David Sanchez Morales, a fearsome Yaqui Indian."
