John Pilger RFK

I've got alot of time for Pilger as a decent honest journalist, so I surprised by this

Is Pilger confirming that he thinks there were two shooters?

From what I’ve seen of you, 8den, you seem like a good chap. Pilger, on the other hand, is a moral pervert who fosters conspiracy theories about Iraq and talks the sheerest malicious gibberish about Israel. I wouldn’t be surprised, therefore, to see him espousing equally sinister nonsense here, if indeed it transpires that’s what he’s doing.

Thank you Par

Well I found Pilger's books fascinating and illuminating when I was growing up, and his documentaries tremendous.

However I've not read any of his work in years, and what I was looking for was a analysis of his account by someone who might be more clued up about RFK assassinations bunk than me.

And Pilger was a eye witness to the shooting.
