Sixty prominent citizens are marking Martin Luther King Jr. Day by calling for new investigations into the assassinations of 4 men — assassinations that changed the world — John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.
The group — The Truth and Reconciliation Committee (TRC) — believes all 4 assassinations were the result of conspiracies that were covered up by the government.
Members of TRC include Oliver Stone, Alec Baldwin, Martin Sheen, Rob Reiner, David Crosby, Mort Sahl, Pentagon Papers whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., Kathleen Kennedy Townsend and MLK’s nephew Isaac Newton Farris Jr.
TRC claims, “The conviction of James Earl Ray [MLK’s convicted killer] has steadily lost credibility over the years.” They note following the verdict, Coretta Scott King said, “There is abundant evidence of a major, high-level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband.”
The JFK assassination has long been controversial and scores of experts and others including Dr. Robert McClelland, one of the surgeons who tried to save JFK’s life, believe Oswald did not act alone.
