After Martin Luther King's 1963 speech, FBI began spying on civil rights leader


ww w.washingtonpost.com

By Tony Capaccio, Published: August 27

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech inspired the world. It also galvanized the FBI into undertaking one of its biggest surveillance operations in history.

Initially approved in October 1963 by then-Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy, the FBI’s wiretap and clandestine microphone campaign against King lasted until his assassination in April 1968. It was initially justified to probe King’s suspected, unproven links to the Communist Party, morphing into a crusade to “neutralize” and discredit the civil rights leader.

This is for the few of you who think the domestic spying is a recent development.The FBI and the rest of the intel community would have have you believe that if "you did nothing wrong then you don't have anything to worry about."The entire government have been trying to stamp out dissent for years.Now that things seem to be building towards war with Syria they will try to make it seem "unpatriotic." to speak out.

Not breaking news but certainly shows the pattern of continuing corruption and lawlessness within the US bureaucratic agencies. Evil is like mold, it never seems to stay small and only goes away if scrubbed vigorously.

You would be surprised Aloysius how many people who were alive back then and who were born later are shocked about domestic spying.
