He's a self-confessed anti-Semite terrorist.  He confessed that he killed RFK due to his support of Israel.  Whatever lies he is telling now doesn't change that.  He should have been executed pursuant to his original sentence.

Hating Israel because you were ethnically cleansed from your family’s homeland is a pretty good reason and not at all anti-semetic.

Whether you believe Sirhan or not, the forensic evidence conclusively proves there was more than one shooter.

Why the RFK assassination gets so much less attention than JFK’s, I’m not sure.
But the evidence is pretty shocking.

I guess you weren't on the receiving end of that "aid" in the form of Phantom jets. Of course, many Palestinians and much of the Arab World think Israel through the US has impacted and ruin their region's future.

Does the new terrorist laws apply to cases five decades ago? Gee, if we're going to try old cases by modern standards, there's more than a few incidents going back two centuries to do with Native Americans and black people that need addressing.

Somehow it doesn't apply to the USA and Israel.  ::)

So to be clear, you are equating the USA and Israel to terrorists.  And Canada, with a blackface wearing Prime Minister and history of ethnic cleansing, is somehow excluded from this moral high ground.  You should be ashamed.

A "pretty good reason" for what?  Murdering RFK?  Hating Jews?  Sirhan was living in LA.  He left Palestine as a child.  He was literally arrested with the murder weapon in his hand.  There is no credible evidence of a second shooter. That is tin foil hat stuff.

Sirhan at 1:10: "I sincerely regret my actions...I was young..I was immature...I was wild...."

Nothing about being hypnotized or controlled by others. He took responsibility. I think the lawyers call that a statement against interest <g>.

The CIA didn't have the ability to "control" minds; MKUltra was a disaster, a disgrace. They gave psychotropic drugs to people and lost control of them. They weren't able to control them.

(CNN)Sirhan Sirhan, the man convicted of assassinating Sen. Robert F. Kennedy in 1968, was recommended for parole on Friday. After spending 53 year in prison, the 77-year-old inmate's fate now rests in the hands of California's governor.

Two of Kennedy's surviving sons, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Douglas Kennedy, offered their support for parole during Sirhan's 16th appearance before the parole board Friday.
"I'm overwhelmed just by being able to view Mr. Sirhan face to face. I think I've lived my life both in fear of him and his name in one way or another. And I am grateful today to see him as a human being worthy of compassion and love," said Douglas Kennedy.
The two-person panel recommended parole, but said the decision is not yet final. Despite the recommendation for release, the board's decision could be reversed by California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who will review the case to determine if the parole grant is consistent with public safety, a process that could take a few months.

Being driven out of your native country due to war is a good reason for hating Israel the same way Cuban exiles have good reasons for hating Fidel Castro.

There were 10-14 shots fired. Sirhan’s gun only held 8 bullets. There were powder burns on RFK’s clothes and head but Sirhan never got within 5 feet of Kennedy.

So killing RFK was justified?  It's hard to follow your point.  He has been paroled.  Hopefully moves to Canada.  The rest is absolute lies.

People sometimes confess to crimes they didn’t commit. The people who arrested Sirhan said he was in a trance on the night of the shooting and he didn’t recall how he got to the hotel.

Whoever handled Sirhan only needed him to fire a gun when he saw RFK to cause a distraction and that’s what he did.

The second gunman, whomever it was (there are named suspects), shot RFK from behind.

And btw, the CIA was involved with the LAPD’s investigation.

I’m not rationalizing what he was accused of doing. I was responding to your calling him an “anti-semite and terrorist.”

Yes, he didn’t like Israel but as someone driven out of his country by Israel, he had legit reasons for disliking Israel unlike neo-nazis or other Israel-haters.

And not all Arabs are Muslims. Sirhan was born a Christian and still is.

You two countries seem to have an hugely inflated opinion of yourselves and correspondingly low opinion of the rest of the world.

Ah, Trudeau hasn't worn blackface since Donald Trump put away his Klan outfit. BTW, Election Day is Monday, September 20th. Blackface and residential schools don't seem to be a campaign issue. You must be jealous, that a true democracy has a diversity of parties, is mature to the point of fairly-assessing and forgiving youthful indiscretions, and function for the People, not just the One Percent.

Canada among the top ten most peaceful countries; the US ranks 121st. Metric system, renewable energy, bilingualism. Must drive you radicalized fascist reactionaries crazy.

Canada's "ethnic cleansing"? Ever hear tell of glass houses?  :P
