Does anyone believe what this Sirhan guy says?

Lawyer calims on behlaf of Sirhan:
"his client was hypnotized and programed to go to the scene, while others carried out the killing. Sirhan has said he has no memory of the killing." --According to article.

"'Mr Teeter is looking for us to allow him to go into the hotel and reenact the shooting so that new acoustical tests can be made to determine if more than one gun was fired. But this would be 35 years after the event and years after his client admitted his guilt in court," Reed said.


"This is just silly," he added. "

Sirhan has consistently, and credibly—even to the prosecution’s experts—asserted that he has no memory of the shooting. With no one to tell him of the exculpatory ballistic and medical evidence, and no memory of where he was and what he did, he believed those who told him he had killed Kennedy, and took his lawyer’s advice to own up to it at the trial. His motive, however, never made sense.

The day after the murder, a leading Arab activist, Dr. Mohammad T. Mehdi, issued a statement that Sirhan might have been motivated to attack RFK because RFK had promised to sell bomber planes to Israel. On May 18th, in a diary attributed to Sirhan are the words “RFK Must Die!” written over and over. However, RFK’s statement to sell the bombers was not shown on TV until May 20th. So that could hardly have been Sirhan’s motive. In court, during his trial, Sirhan burst out that he had killed RFK “willfully, premeditatively, with twenty years of malice aforethought.” This was not very compelling, however, since Sirhan was only 24 years old at that time of the assassination. He would have had to be contemplating the murder of the as yet little known Kennedy at the age of four! As he saw it, he had only a couple of choices. Either he had killed Kennedy on purpose, or he had lost his mind. Not wanting to believe the latter he embraced the former. And once he believed that, together with his defense team he sought out a motive. Confronted with the possibility that he was out of control or insane, Sirhan replied, “I’d rather die and say I killed that son of a bitch for my country, period. But believing doesn’t make it so, and the evidence shows that Sirhan could not have fired the three shots that hit Kennedy.

Any new information in the past years about the theory (and evidence) that he was hypnotized by the government? Specifically by Dr. William Bryan? Here's an excellent article if you're not familar with the theory:
