Raymond Wood, a former NYPD undercover officer, in a death-bed confession, admitted to being part of a conspiracy to target Malcolm X. He stated that he was part of a conspiracy by the NYPD to trap two of Malcolm X's security team into a plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty, just a few days before Malcolm's assassination. In fact, he was assigned by the NYPD to surveil the Audubon Ballroom where Malcolm X was to make a speech and where he was assassinated. This is all detailed in an article by the Washington Post on the 22nd February this year.
Obviously, given the fame and influence of Malcolm X, there are plenty of conspiracy theories swirling around what actually occurred during his assassination, but without solid evidence, there is little one can say, apart from speculation. However, here we have solid, prima facie, evidence of such a conspiracy amongst the NYPD, and perhaps higher.
Q. Why would the FBI or the NYPD feel it necessary to entrap members of Malcolm X's security detail in a crime?
Q. Given the solid evidence of a conspiracy why isn't there a full scale enquiry into the assassination of Malcolm X?
