Shane O'Sullivan, a screenplay writer, has taken a bite out of the RFK conspiracy. The book is narrated by O'Sullivan who explains his entry into this subject and field. O'Sullivan, whose from Ireland, had no preconceived knowledge of Bobby Kennedy. His wife turned him onto the subject and thought it would make a good screenplay. When he was finished, he realized he had a documentary instead.
O'Sullivan's narrative is fairly easy to follow. He covers the subject with a fair degree of completion. He admits in the preface there was not enough space for everything. Unfortunately, he leaves out Jerry Owens, the walking Bible from Turner and Christian's book, "The Assassination of RFK". This to me is a fatal flaw as Turner and Christian's book would make a more fascinating screenplay (not to mention their excellent investigative reporting).
O'Sullivan delivers the essential facts of the RFK case. He presents the facts in a very fair manner. His conclusions are logical. Unlike many conspiracy writes, O'Sullivan doesn't jump off the deep end in order to force a conclusion. To his credit, he admits his own mistakes: the David Morales red herring. O'Sullivan believed CIA hitman David Morales was in the Ambassador hotel on June 4, 1968. He thoroughly investigated this premise. But reluctantly abandoned the position because the evidence was not conclusive.
In the end, O'Sullivan presents the acoustical evidence which shows 11 shots were fired in the pantry. This is reminscent of the dictabelt recording from the HSCA from 1978. The hotly contested conclusion of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (hotly contested by the Oswald-did-it-alone crowd) will probably precipitate the same for O'Sullivan's case here.
Having watched his documentary and read the book, I believe O'Sullivan has some more RFK investigating in him. I predict his next book will be a better.
