Remember the official court verdict? The assassination of Martin Luther King was a conspiracy, not a lone gunman! So why wasn't anything done?

Some people view the 1960s in America as a "do your own thing" era, whereas in reality it was an era of brutal political repression including the assassination of John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Malcom X, and Martin Luther King, among many others.

Few probably remember this, but a court that examined official evidence in the Martin Luther King assassination determined James Earl Ray was NOT the assassin - and that the assassination was the result of a conspiracy. Do you remember that? (Of course not - when the verdict finally came down, years later, it only made page 16 of the New York Times.) But why?

Watch this riveting interview to get your historical facts straight in your own mind.

The person below - James Di Eugenio of Probe Magazine which consistently covered the case - points out in this interview in July 2008 that before he was murdered, King became an outspoken opponent of the Vietnam War.

April 4, 1968 - Martin Luther King, high profile opponent of the Vietnam War - assassinated.

June 4, 1968 - Robert J. Kennedy, high profile opponent of the Vietnam War - assassinated.

What you just saw is Part 1 - you will definitely want to watch Part 2 (about the same length) on Google Videos here.

Part 2 details the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis Tennessee on June 4th, 1968. The interview covers the peculiar circumstances and near impossibility of James Earl Ray having been the assassin. Several of the figures involved with Ray trials are discussed including Lloyd Jowers, William Pepper, Judge Joe Brown, Arthur Hanes and Percy Foreman.

The conclusions just make you want to shake your head...
