FBI tracked King's every move


www.cnn.com

The agency's hidden tape recorders turned up almost nothing about communism.

But they did reveal embarrassing details about King's sex life -- details the FBI was able to use against him.

My first thought upon reading this story was, why purposely spotlight a negative attribute after an iconic figure has been bead for 40 plus years?


When King learned he would be the recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964, the FBI decided to take its harassment of King one step further, sending him an insulting and threatening note anonymously. A draft was found in the FBI files years later. In it the FBI wrote, "You are a colossal fraud and an evil, vicious one at that." The letter went on to say, "The American public ... will know you for what you are -- an evil, abnormal beast," and "Satan could not do more."

The letter's threat was ominous, if not specific: "King you are done." Some have theorized the intent of the letter was to drive King to commit suicide in order to avoid personal embarrassment. "King, there is only one thing left for you to do," the letter concluded. "You know what it is ... You better take it before your filthy, abnormal fraudulent self is bared to the nation."


I wonder if reverend wright is somewhere in obscurity saying, "and how was I off-base with my statements?"

I also think the timing is curious to say the least.

I can't believe they actually conjured the idea up to get him to commit suicide.


Well, MLK, even those they reveal your personal side, I still respect your public efforts.
RIP
