A former New York City police officer has implicated the FBI and NYPD in the murder of civil rights leader Malcolm X on February 21, 1965. This news has actually appeared in a few MSM articles and broadcasts, though the key word there is “F-E-W”. The fact that this key information took 56 years to materialize has effectively led the public to believe that it was merely an internecine battle for dominance with the Nation of Islam, another case of: “Nothing to see here folks, move on . . .” Unless this news is widely broadcast, in order to reach the “masses” it will come and go and the well-established mythical meme will not materially change.
This long-suppressed bit of information (caused by the policeman’s understandable fear of “recriminations” as long as he was alive) is the first strong linkage ever connecting the FBI to the murder of Malcolm X, though that has been suspected by many, for decades.
Only three weeks ago, similarly new revelations produced evidence of FBI involvement in the 1969 murders of Black Panthers Fred Hampton and Mark Clark (see my February 3rd blog on that here). The following excerpt from that piece illustrates the familiar patterns of the hidden role of the FBI — emanating directly from Assistant Directors William C. Sullivan, Cartha “Deke” DeLoach, up the org. chart to Clyde Tolson and J. Edgar Hoover, with the implicit approval of Lyndon B. Johnson — in both of these cases, changing only the victim’s names, location and year:
The focal point of the article related to how the FBI, acting through local authorities and police, led a vicious raid on the apartment of two Black Panthers members, Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, in a brutally vicious 1969 raid that resulted in their deaths.
These incidents were among the still-uncounted “less notable” FBI and CIA crimes during the 1960s LBJ era, however proofs of these events, along with others within the collective scope of all of them, serve to validate the “main events” including their involvements in the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr., Robert F. Kennedy and John F. Kennedy.
