Recent reporting concerning Paul Schrade's testimony at Sirhan's February 2016 parole hearing contrasts starkly with how the Washing Post has traditionally treated stories concerning the assassinations of the 1960s, writes Jim DiEugenio.

Letter sent in advance of Sirhan's parole hearing in February of 2016.
Full transcript of Sirhan's parole board hearing, February 16, 2016 (includes Paul Schrade's statements).
Paul Schrade, now 91 years old, was shot in the head on June 5, 1968, at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles while standing alongside Robert Kennedy. Schrade contends that the now 71-year-old Sirhan was not the only shooter that night, and that Kennedy was actually killed by a second gunman.
Jim DiEugenio commemorates the important contributions made by Bill Turner to the study of the JFK and RFK cases and his role during Garrison's investigation.

There is really nothing new in the book and its central thesis is simply not supported by the evidence. That CIA rogues were a part of the plot to kill Kennedy has been written before and in a far more persuasive manner than Nolan manages, writes Martin Hay.
