Sirhan, under hypnosis, saying woman controlled him

Our Story: His memory has changed, once again.

In kaleidoscopic images that were copied by hand during hypnotic sessions, Sirhan B. Sirhan says the famous “woman in a polka dot dress” controlled his behavior the night in June, 1968, when Senator Robert F. Kennedy was assassinated.

The mysterious woman, a young girl whom Mr. Sirhan termed as "a seductress with an unspoken unavailability," left the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles in a hurry, running for a fire escape and shouting, “We shot Kennedy!” She has never been apprehended or identified.

The eerie testimony of the convicted killer, a Palestinian refugee whom many believe was in the act of carrying out Islamic jihad when he aimed the .22 caliber revolver at the Presidential candidate only moments after he declared victory in the California Primary, holds that he was hypnotized at a target practice range, then made to believe he was actually firing at targets, and not at a person.

Among his effects seized after the assassination, authorities found a notebook in which he repeatedly wrote that Senator Kennedy must die due to his support for Israeli Defense Forces acquisition of American fighter-bomber jets and the parts and maintenance contracts to keep them in fighting trim. The Senator had played a key role in Congressional approval of Defense Department cooperation with the Israelis.

Under the trance spell induced by Harvard University trauma memory and hypnosis expert Daniel Brown, Mr. Sirhan, who has for all these years maintained he has no memory of what happened at the time, that he was in a black out, said:

“I thought I was at the range more than I was actually shooting at any person, let alone Bobby Kennedy.”

The woman in the polka dot dress pinched his shoulder and spun him around, he now remembers.

“I am trying to figure out how to hit on her...That's all that I can think about. 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.” Dr. Brown calls the hypnotic state in which Mr. Sirhan has made his new discoveries "hypnotic free recall." He has been in custody since June, 1968, a member of various therapeutic communities at Vacaville State Prison and San Quentin.

The new story is outlined in court papers filed by Mr. Sirhan's lawyer, William F. Pepper, who retained Dr. Brown for the hypnotherapeutic sessions in which he revealed his newly found memories of the event that changed the course of history by removing the top Democratic contender for President in the elections of 1968 and replaced him with a conservative Republican shoo-in, Richard M. Nixon.

Mr. Nixon exercised the “southern strategy,” which consisted mainly of guaranteeing conservative southern Democrats that he would delay school integration and affirmative action as long as possible in what is now referred to in conservative circles as “the second reconstruction” in the aftermath of the “War Between The States.”

It was the opening wedge in a conservative revolution that swept the deep south and southwestern states.

Mr. Nixon promised to end the Vietnam War with a “secret plan” which would guarantee “peace with honor.” Instead, the war and its various ultra-secret sideshows in Laos and Cambodia lingered on until 1975.

Asked at the time about Mr. Nixon's secret plan to end the war, President Lyndon B. Johnson said, “Why, that mean old man. He knows how to end this war, but he won't tell us. It's a secret.”

Mr. Sirhan was denied parole in March due to his lack of remorse for the killing for which he was convicted, sentenced to die, then re-sentenced to life imprisonment after the U.S. Supreme Court found California's death penalty unconstitutional due to what the justices termed as conditions considered as cruel and unusual punishment.

After her attacker shot her in the head, the Congresswoman clung to life as her husband, an Astronaut, held her hand and talked to her about his hopes that she would survive. He was not alone. You may depend upon that.
