What is truly extraordinary about Malcolm X’s secretly-recorded December 1963 meeting with FBI agents ‘Beckwith’ and ‘Fulton’ from the Bureau’s New York field office (it would be fascinating to find out if either of these agents are still alive) is the implacable and uncompromising manner in which Malcolm X defended Elijah Muhammad and the Nation of Islam (NOI) against the Bureau’s nefarious overtures at a time when Malcolm was under a 90-day suspension order instituted by Mr Muhammad for the purpose of isolating, and ultimately assassinating, him (and not imposed as punishment for the JFK “chickens come home to roost” remarks as was falsely claimed at the time). For it was during this same period that Captain Joseph X Gravitt of New York’s Temple #7 attempted to recruit explosives expert Luqman Abdurr Rahim (aka Anas M Luqman) to wire Malcolm’s Oldsmobile to explode upon ignition.
Had Malcolm X chosen to cut a deal with the FBI and surrender the NOI’s most closely-guarded secrets over to the US Government in return for millions of dollars and a comfortable life in a witness protection program or as a high-powered former NOI minister-turned-FBI official, Malcolm could have easily wiped Elijah Muhammad and the NOI off the face of the Earth over a decade before the NOI’s eventual demise in the wake of Mr Muhammad’s 1975 death.
This video is an extraordinary testament to the integrity, decency and loyalty of Malcolm X and is a devastating indictment of the vicious and barbaric NOI which rewarded that trust by labelling him as a ‘traitor’ and ‘hypocrite’ and murdering him in cold blood on 21st February 1965 in front of his wife and children.
21st February 2015 will mark the 50th anniversary of the Malcolm X assassination and we demand that Louis Farrakhan publish all of the NOI’s files and records, in full and without alteration, on the five known assassins of Malcolm X: William X Bradley, Leon Davis, Talmadge Hayer, Albert Benjamin Thomas and Wilbert McKinney. In addition, we demand that Mr Farrakhan make available to the public all of the NOI’s files and records on former Fruit of Islam (FOI) lieutenant Agurs Linward X Cathcart who has recently emerged as a person of interest where the Malcolm X assassination is concerned. We are also appealing to President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder to publish all US federal government files and records, without alteration or redaction, relating to the 1965 crime.
