A Lie Too Big To Fail by Lisa Pease

"...why would a conspirator get Kennedy to autograph his poster before playing a part in killing him? "

Mark David Chapman might have the answer to this kind of question.

And this brings us to half an autograph.  As seen in the video earlier in this thread Michael Wayne approaches RFK, on his way in through the pantry to speak, for an autograph.  In that video he already seems devoid of his deviously obtained press passes.  He is asked to leave the pantry by someone with the hotel (Ucker?), he says, "I have to stay to get RFK to finish his autograph on my poster, he only half autographed it."  R almost F but no K?  Robert F...I'll be back later to sign the Kennedy part?  As Lisa mentions in so many words this is not a credible line of thought.

Wayne did leave the pantry then, into the kitchen (?) or hallway between it and the Colonial room he would run through after the assassination.  But first, he returned to the pantry.

Manuel Pena has connections to both the JFK and RFK murders. It was Pena who traced Oswald's telescopic sight to a California gun shop.  After the assassination, Senator Dodd helped a Senate Internal Security Subcommittee publish a story that Oswald bad been trained at a KGB assassination school in Minsk. Two mail-order houses were the center points from which Oswald ordered his Smith and Wesson .38 revolver (Seaport Traders of Los Angeles) and his Mannlicher-Carcano rifle (Klein's of Chicago). Oswald ordered his pistol two days before Senator Christopher Dodd's subcommittee began hearings in January 1963. The subcommittee’s statistics later showed a purchase in Texas made from Seaport Traders. One of the groups being investigated for firearm purchases was one that Oswald had in his address book ... the American Nazi Party.  An investigator looking into interstate firearms sales at this time was Manuel Pena, the LAPD lieutenant who was later one of the officers investigating Robert Kennedy's assassination.

Pena had an interesting background; he served in the Navy during WWII and in the Army during the Korean War, and was a Counterintelligence officer in France.  He spoke French and Spanish, and had connections with various intelligence agencies in several countries. In 1967, Pena "retired" from the LAPD, leaving to join AID, a cover for political operations in foreign countries.  Roger LeJeunesse, an FBI agent who had been involved in the RFK investigation, told author William Turner that Pena had performed special assignments for the CIA for more than ten years.  After his retirement from the LAPD (and a public farewell dinner) in November of 1967, Pena inexplicably returned to the LAPD in April 1968 ...  just in time to head the LAPD group called Special Unit Senator that controlled the RFK investigation two months later. Pena was the trusted courier of key evidence being supplied to the FBI ... and he was affiliated with the same mercenaries and cut-outs used by JMWave operatives in various operations -- Saigon, El Salvador, Uruguay, Phoenix -- who were employed by cover with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

Thanks Gene for a succinct gathering of the info on Pena. Hernandez always gave me the creeps and, I think I mentioned once before, that the recording of him pestering - torturing - Sandy Serrano to change her testimony bugged me so much I couldn't finish listening to it. That the CIA  had tentacles into the Dallas and Los Angeles Police is disturbing  on its face; that they were used to cover both killings is yet another reason to , as JFK said, "break the CIA into a thousand pieces."

For those who haven't heard it yet, here is a video of the interrogation.

In reference to the interrogation, I managed to contact a well respected polygraph operator...who trains in the subject...and after some time he agreed to listed to the interrogation and critique it.  The net result is that he stated the basic protocol was violated in many ways including the set up of the reference questions.  Unfortunately, once he realized what it was about he refused to be quoted by name....unfortunately not unusual..  I should also point out, as I do in my essays, that the letters and statements about Serrano's relating the story to an LA Assistant District Attorney outside the hotel before she ever presented herself to police totally deconstruct the Hernandez scenario and prove that his report on her was a lie...and he and his boss knew it because the ADA had written them multiple letters about his contact with Serrano.

Wow.  Thanks for posting this Ray.  Lisa quotes virtually all of this in the book and mentions how actually hearing Hernandez harass and intimidate Serrano is stunning.  She's right again.  How anyone can listen to this and not conclude he, the LAPD and DA's office were not trying to shut down any investigation beyond Sirhan, much less actually investigate RFK's assassination is beyond me.

The judges and parole board should be required to listen to this and respond in detail regarding it's relevance to Sirhan's continued imprisonment.  Including Kamala Harris.
