President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder: Release the Malcolm X files
Recent media events have continued a process of slander against the good name and reputation of The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan. The mass media have tried to implicate Minister Farrakhan in the assassination of Malcolm X, falsely and maliciously reporting that he was directly involved in the murder of the slain black leader. The Federal Bureau of Investigation, under the direction of J. Edgar Hoover, worked night and day to help create the atmosphere that allowed Malcolm X to be assassinated.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation's illegal and unconstitutional Counter Intelligence Program (COINTELPRO) interfered with and disrupted the lawful rights of nearly every Black organization and its leadership, and the U.S. government has never denied its role in the murder of Black leaders. The U.S. government has volumes of documents, photographs, films, audio files, and other relevant material about these activities hidden away from public view. The FBI, CIA, and other government agencies conducted this spy campaign against American citizens using taxpayer money. Therefore, we the people petition the Obama Administration to make available to the public ALL government files related to the assassination of Malcolm X.
We petition the Obama Administration to make available to the public all government files (unredacted) related to the assassination of Malcolm X.

President Obama: Release the Malcolm X files
Subject: Make available to the public all government files (unredacted) related to the assassination of Malcolm X.
I just signed a petition demanding the release of all government files related to the assassination of Malcolm X.
It is well-documented that the government of the United States engaged in many covert operations against its own citizens, specifically targeting Black organizations and their leadership. Martin Luther King and his family were victims of this official persecution as were Native American rights groups, women’s rights groups, labor unions and all others seeking to secure their Constitutional rights.
FBI files show that the activist Malcolm X (Little) and the organization he represented, the Nation of Islam, were the object of a wide-ranging tax-payer funded campaign of harassment, disruption, and sabotage that may have also included Malcolm X’s murder by agents of the FBI.
The FBI and the U.S. government has been withholding “secret” files on the assassination of Malcolm X which contain critical evidence that will help bring his murderers to justice. More information on the assassination of Malcolm X and Minister Farrakhan’s response can be viewed at: http://www.noi.org/xfiles/
Foremost among those calling for the release of these FBI files has been The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan who has PUBLICLY called for the release of these FBI files. He said: “I desired the files to be opened so that the full truth would be made known….We, the entire Black nation, have a vested interest in knowing the truth because the truth is ultimately the only balm that can heal the wounds that all of us are suffering from.”
Pres. Obama and his Justice Department headed by Eric Holder–two Black men—should release the unaltered, unredacted FBI files that would solve one of the most horrific murders in U.S. history.
