    For the first time, Martin Luther King’s entire FBI file is now online - all 16,659 pages, posted by The Memory Hole.

    CLICK HERE TO GO TO THE INTERNET ARCHIVE PAGE CONTAINING THE FILE

    The FBI’s Freedom of Information Act office elected not to post the entire file to its website; instead, they’ve posted only the first 201 pages here.

    For a long time, if you wanted to view the whole thing, you had to pay the FBI FOIA office over $1,600 (10 cents/page) to get a paper copy, which isn’t a very convenient format for a huge file, or you had to go to a library that had it on microform, or you could view it in the reading room at FBI HQ in Washington, DC. Now you can get it online in PDF format.

    Check out what they said.

    "A couple of important notes about King’s file in general. The 16,659 pages don’t encompass all of King’s FBI file - however, this is all that the Bureau has released. As is often the case, they’ve withheld some pages under exemptions allowed by the Freedom of Information Act. Also, a 1977 court order forced the FBI to remove portions of the file and send them to the National Archives, where they are sealed until 2027."

    LOL... What is gonna be the difference in 2027?

    I guess, this way, when we go back and read the pure off the chain ness of how racist this BEAST is, they can then say.

    "Hey... that was ALONG TIME AGO. A REALLY LONG TIME!"

    That's what I figured......I remember them saying something about not releasing everything until 2027.........They probably will never release everything in full detail....................
