Murderous, Duplicitous Cover-up
This book lays bare the role of the U.S. government, New York City authorities, and capitalist news media in the killing of Malcolm X. Only the gullible did not suspect FBI and CIA involvement in the 1965 assassination of Malcolm. In the wake of the Watergate scandal, the FBI was forced to reveal documents in 1974 regarding its sordid goal: to 'prevent the rise of a `messiah.' '_____(expunged name) might have been such a `messiah'. He is the martyr of the movement today,' read a FBI memo dated August 25, 1967. This book's analysis is crucial for those seeking the truth today.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Against the Political as well as the Physical Murder of Malcolm X
This book combines on the spot reporting of the murder of Malcolm X that exposes the flaws in the NYPD's claims about the murder with a look back at the murder taken after COINTELPRO, the FBI's campaign against the civil rights, antiwar, and other progressive movements which included following and disrupting the life of Malcolm X. This is combined with political defense of Malcolm's ideas and his course of struggle in the time after he broke with the Muslims. For those who think the NYPD and the FBI are heroes, and who think that the US government should not be feared in regard to protecting the civil liberties of people in struggle, this is the book to read!Was this review helpful?
