Reading Time: 7 minutes Part 3 of our three-part series on the techniques of trolls. The first two parts were concerned mostly with sabotage and disinformation on the Internet, but Part 3 goes back in time to the days when activists unwittingly came face-to-face with government infiltrators.
Reading Time: 2 minutes By Shane O’Sullivan As I noted at the end of yesterday’s piece, media interviews with inmates are banned in California, so the only time the public gets to see Sirhan Sirhan is in televised coverage of his parole hearings. A few weeks ago, I was shocked to discover that, for the first time ever, no Read More
Reading Time: 12 minutes For over 40 years, Paul Schrade has campaigned to reopen the investigation into the RFK assassination. Eyewitness testimony, the autopsy report and an audio recording of the shooting all strongly suggest that two guns were involved and that Sirhan could not have fired the fatal shot.
Reading Time: 2 minutes We’ve landed the full list of documents the US government claims it is still holding that pertain to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. It’s a long list — 3,603 documents. And the details are sparse. But it’s a very good start.
Reading Time: 6 minutes This is the second of a three-part series on the insidious techniques of trolls, spooks, feds, saboteurs, provocateurs, and disinformants. As you read about these dirty tricks, you may have a sense of deja-vu.

Reading Time: 2 minutes Stuart Wexler and Larry Hancock’s mini e-book, Killing King, on various attempts at assassinating Martin Luther King, does a good job of reporting on the tight KKK/Southern law enforcement network that pretty much committed every major regional bombing and assassination of civil rights activists (and of small children in the infamous 1963 bombing of a church Read More
Reading Time: 9 minutes In honor of Martin Luther King Day, WhoWhatWhy presents — through a fascinating collection of pictures — a brief history of American racism, a look at the kind of hatred, atrocities, and soul-searing humiliation that spurred King into action. Rather than the stuff of dreams, much of it was a living nightmare. We first published this piece in 2015, but it remains more relevant than ever — because we seem to be going backwards. We want you to see, with your own eyes, just how ugly it can get.
Reading Time: 3 minutes The evidence suggests the FBI went to extraordinary lengths to set up one of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s best friends, to ensure his help in convicting the accused Boston Marathon bomber. Stephen Silva, who testified against Tsarnaev, was released on December 22, 2015, and is now a free man after being sentenced to time served:17 months. Had he not agreed to testify for the prosecution, he would have faced a maximum of 40 years for selling heroin — something the FBI manipulated him into doing.
Reading Time: 11 minutes This is an essay about lies — layer upon layer of lies — told by US intelligence agencies and other officials about what Lee Harvey Oswald, or his look-alike, was allegedly doing in Mexico just weeks before the Kennedy assassination. And it is about obstruction of justice in what is considered the crime of the century.
