What is included with this book?


The conventional narrative of MLK's assassination is an FBI and CIA disinformation tactic. Find the proof here. 

One of the most infamous and devastating assassinations in American history, the murder of civil rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr., was also one of the most quickly resolved by authorities: James Earl Ray was convicted of the crime less than a year after it occurred. Yet, did they catch the right person? Or was Ray framed by President Lyndon B. Johnson and FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover?

In Who REALLY Killed Martin Luther King, Jr.?, Phillip F. Nelson explores the tactics used by the FBI to portray Ray as a southern racist and stalker of King. He shows that early books on King’s death were written for the very purpose of “dis-informing” the American public, at the behest of the FBI and CIA, and are filled with proven lies and distortions.

As Nelson methodically exposes the original constructed false narrative as the massive deceit that it was, he presents a revised and corrected account in its place, based upon proven facts that exonerate James Earl Ray. Nelson’s account is supplemented by several authors, including Harold Weisberg, Mark Lane, Dick Gregory, John Avery Emison, Philip Melanson, and William F. Pepper. Nelson also posits numerous instances of how government investigators—the FBI originally, then the Department of Justice in 1976, the House Select Committee on Assassinations investigators in 1978 and the DOJ again in 2000—deliberately avoided pursuing any and all leads which pointed toward Ray’s innocence.

This updated paperback edition now includes a foreword from LBJ researcher Edgar F. Tatro, an educator, author, and participator in the House Select Committee on Assassinations who is among the first generation of JFK researchers. His unique insights into what he refers to as the "Texas connection" are an invaluable resource to anyone wishing to understand the full dimensions of the conspiracy behind the JFK assassination.

Author Biography

Phillip F. Nelson is the author of LBJ: The Mastermind of the JFK Assassination and LBJ: From Mastermind to "The Colossus." After college, a stint in the Peace Corps, and a corporate career, he began an intensive study of the JFK assassination, Johnson's presidency, and his continuing criminal conduct.

Edgar F. Tatro is among the first generation of JFK researchers, having doubted the emerging "official story" even as it was being constructed in 1964 and written into the Warren Commission's Report in October of that year. His curriculum vitae includes teaching college-level and adult education courses for thirty years, specializing in the JFK assassination. He actively participated with members of the House Select Committee on Assassinations (HSCA) in 1977-78 in identifying areas warranting further investigation, as well as testifying directly to the Assassination Records Review Board (ARRB) on March 24, 1995, listing numerous contradictions and anomalies within the official story that had never been adequately investigated. He also authored many research articles during that period, including being published in Jerry Rose's The Third Decade, Penn Jones's The Continuing Inquiry, and Ireland's The JFK Assassination Forum. In addition to his contributions to this book, as well as author Nelson's Remember the Liberty!, he has been cited in dozens of other books.
