Sirhan Sirhan, Forgotten Terrorist


What was the first act of Arab terrorism committed inside the United States? If you were thinking of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, which killed six people and wounded 1,000, you'd be off by almost a quarter-century. It actually occurred 50 years ago this week, when Sirhan Bishara Sirhan assassinated Senator Robert F. Kennedy - an act that subverted the American electoral process and altered the history of the United States.
