The Trump Administration released a new batch of JFK assassination files from the National Archives yesterday which included a disparaging “analysis” of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.  The secret FBI document is dated March 12, 1968 while J. Edgar Hoover headed that agency.  Three weeks later, on April 4, 1968, MLK himself was assassinated.

The content of the document provides no new revelations.  It has been known for some time that Hoover considered King a dangerous threat to America’s stability and an enemy of the United States.  What is peculiar, however, is why the document was archived in the JFK assassination files.  Is there some connection, which could be quite revealing;  or, was it just a filing mistake or meaningless coincidence?

  1. My understanding is that Hoover was practically a King in the FBI back then, almost completely untouchable and running the agency almost totally by himself. Don’t see why he couldn’t, or wouldn’t have killed both these guys. Fuckin’ liberal bastards. Both of ’em. 🙂

  2. With plenty of government officials, agents, and their agencies having to / wanting to ‘cover their own asses/images,’ you can reasonably assume that the full spectrum of truth/facts were distorted or blatantly covered/destroyed back then. Furthermore, the current Administration and political party in power today will indeed “protect” persons/party in all necessary ways to avoid tarnishing the men THEY regard as historical pillars of Conservatism, Capitalism, Republicanism, inequality (disguised as “high principled American work ethics”), and good (white) Christian morals. 😣

    You think these selected released documents raise lots of questions? By not releasing EVERYTHING, how many MORE questions will be asked? What exactly needs “protecting” after 55-years???
