As many of you know, I and my friend and fellow researcher Stu Wexler have spent a great deal of time on the assassinations of Dr. King and of Robert Kennedy. Unfortunately, while we think we may have developed significant new details of the conspiracy in the RFK murder, the total failure of the LAPD and the FBI in their investigations – including the LAPD’s provable effort to obfuscate the case – and our inability to connect with Sandra Serrano has left us hanging with our RFK research. Fortunately we had a great deal more success in pursuing the King assassination, we were able to extend a good deal of the original 1968 investigation and to detail a series of attempts to kill Dr. King. The level of detail in those attempts allow us to derive a concrete pattern in the assassination efforts – a pattern involving a very specific network of individuals. We were fortunate enough to locate, connect with and re-interview a number of key individuals from that network as well as individuals in the original 1968 inquiries. Beyond that we were also able to locate an individual who had initially been involved with a bounty offer to kill Dr. King and ultimately had been used to carry funds to be used in the bounty payment. We were able to connect James Earl Ray to that same offer, although only circumstantially and not absolutely. Extensive FOIA research also allowed us to reexamine and raise issues with the evidence offered in both Ray’s criminal and civil trials – as well as to spell out specific holes in the criminal investigation.
We described that work and our conclusions in The Awful Grace of God. But as many researchers know, the FOIA process grinds slowly, especially when you are challenging release decisions. Fortunately Stu is a stubborn guy and quite able to pursue FOIA work with an energy far beyond me. Now, after several years in the King inquiry, he has been able to expand our original work and update it in a new electronic edition of our book titled Killing King. That work is now available on Amazon:
Fortunately we were also able to get some international press attention to the subject – the US media seems to consider it old news, over and done – and for that I would refer you to the following Daily Mail article:
Our MLK work has been challenging, not only because of the normal barriers in conspiracy research, but because the conspiracy we are tracking and writing about is not the one that many people want it to be. As we have found in the past, when you come up with what people want to believe they consider you are doing great work and must be pretty smarty. When you come up with a contrary view, its a far different story.
