For John, BLUF: So, once again the FBI has managed to discredit someone who actually did good for the nation. This is not something we should be proud of as Americans. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The American Conservative, by Mr Rod Dreher, 26 May 2019.
Here is the lede:
Historians have known for many years that civil rights icon Martin Luther King had been unfaithful to his wife. But now, David Garrow, who won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for his biography of King, has unearthed previously classified FBI documents showing that King was genuinely sexually depraved.Two points; three actually:
- The word "depraved" seems out of context, but it was the FBI's word,
- This is, by and large, old news,
- The FBI has been surveilling far too many people over the years.
