The Assassination of MLK Jr as a Covert Operation

I've been reading the William Pepper book “Orders to Kill: The Truth Behind the Murder of Martin Luther King”-- summarized here.

What strikes me is how incredibly complicated the whole operation was!

You might think if the regime wanted to kill someone, they would just hire a professional hitman to shoot the person at some favorable location for a killing, and that would be it. The gunman would get away, and no one would ever find him.

But no!

For MLK Jr, it was an amazing assembly of many different intertwined operations, involving multiple federal government agencies (FBI, NSA, CIA, Army), local law enforcement (Memphis police), non-government groups (Mafia) and apparently private citizens as well. There were easily dozens of people involved -- just to kill this one guy!

There was of course, the patsy: James Earl Ray.

But there was also the set-up-- getting MLK Jr to the right place, getting his normal police protection away from him, getting certain police and fire units out of the way, getting the killer and accomplices into place, setting up a decoy chase to lure the police the wrong way, setting-up and framing Ray (which was a very extensive operation), and altering the crime scene to mislead people about where the shots came from, etc.

All in all, it is simply amazing how complex the job was-- by choice, by the regime!

If you think about 9/11, about how complicated of a covert operation it seemed to be-- this all fits with what we know about the killing of MLK Jr. 9/11 was a much grander operation, and obviously needed to be more complex. Well, we have clear precedent of how fiendishly detailed these jobs can be -- and how they can be done without anyone breaking silence for years.

I've read one of William Pepper's books and some of his articles.

Howsomeohever, he has told some whoppers about the JFK assassination and RFK, in particular.

For example, he told researcher Joan Mellen that RFK had flown to South Florida in the summer of 1963 where he gave a speech to a group of anti-Castro Cubans. When Ms. Mellen asked his source for that, he told her it was Gerrry Hemming. The late Gerry Hemming is someone whose reputation for veracity, amongst serious researchers, is not very good.

"In the course of the same conversation, Pepper told me that Bobby had flown to Dallas on the evening Oswald was arrested, and talked to Oswald in his cell! But I must not use this revelation!"

So, conspiracy analysts must be very careful...even when it comes to well-meaning people such as William Pepper.
