This review is from: RFK Must Die: The Assassination of Bobby Kennedy (DVD)
Shane O'Sullivan has done a fine job here. This is a fascinating look at the world of the LAPD such as it was in the sixties. Listen and you will hear of witnesses being pressured by LAPD investigators to change their stories to conform to the official version of events, that Sirhan acted alone. It is possible that certain CIA officials were present that night. Intriguing photographic evidence and eye witness testimony is introduced on that score, and the viewer is left to draw his or her own conclusions. Ed Lopez, a former congressional investigator gives a positive i.d. of George Joannides, a now dead CIA official who was heavily involved with the Cuban exiles. CIA's stern refusal to provide any information on Joannides hardly helps its case before the general public. Wayne Smith, a diplomat under JFK knew David Morales well and gives a positive i.d. of him. The interview with Rocky Carbajal a rough hewn lifelong pal of David Morales, is quite interesting. Carbajal does not believe Morales was at the Ambassador Hotel that night, but he is certain Morales was involved in the murder of JFK. Carbajal believes the murders of both Kennedy brothers were CIA operations. Included also are tapes of Sirhan's hypnosis session which is very eery to listen to. The LAPD destroyed evidence in the case and many documents, leaving the viewer with little confidence in the official story. But O'Sullivan may have opened a door towards the truth, though it may now be too late to get the whole story.
A new development is being announced in this case. This was posted at
" Scientific Audio Evidence

Reveals Second Gunman in RFK Assassination

In 2004 the only known audio tape of the RFK assassination was discovered stored in the California State Archives in Sacramento, CA by an investigative journalist. Recorded by independent journalist Stanislaw Pruszynski, it is the only known audio recording that contains the actual shots fired during the shooting on June 5, 1968 in Los Angeles.

Three years ago, Philip Van Praag, an expert in the forensic analysis of magnetic media recordings, began studying the audio tape with startling results; the tape revealed between 10 and 13 shots fired. The presence of 10 shots is highly significant because Sirhan's handgun could fire no more than eight shots without reloading. Additionally, two of the shots occured so close together that they could not have been fired by the same gunman; strong evidence of a second gun being fired by someone other than Sirhan.

Van Praag will present his unique scientific testing methods and results at 4:00pm on February 21st at the American Academy of Forensic Scientists (AAFS) meeting in Washington DC. His presentation is entitled "Acoustic Analysis of Gunshot Recordings Utilizing Frequency Selective Integrated Loudness Envelope Evaluation". AAFS is the world's most prestigious forensic science organization. As a professional society dedicated to the application of science to the law, the AAFS is committed to the promotion of education and the elevation of accuracy, precision, and specificity in the forensic sciences.

Phil Van Praag's involvement in the audio field has spanned the past 45 years, with forensic analysis of magnetic media recordings included over 35 of those years. The context of his involvement in the field has been embodied both within his professional career and as a result of ongoing independent study. In that regard, he has maintained a substantial laboratory facility with considerable scientific instrumentation with which to conduct his research.

Possessing a Master of Science degree in Engineering (Electrical), Van Praag's professional employment background has included, most recently, a position of Vice President of Information Technology (IT) for the American Heart Association. Prior to that, he was the Chief Information Officer & Vice President of IT for Applied Power, Inc. He had previously worked as a Director of Information Systems at R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co., and the Technical Head of Automated Data Management at Hughes Aircraft Co. He has also held engineering related positions at Ampex Corporation as a Senior Instructor in their Professional Audio/Video Systems division, and in technical laboratory work at Bell Telephone Laboratories, Sandia National Laboratories, and IBM."
