    Director, FBI

    Counterintelligence Program
    Black Nationalist-Hate groups

    Editors note: This is the program that got Martin Luther King and Malcolm X Assassinated. Even though this memo predated Malcolm’s killing in 1965 its substance were still in use because Malcolm stated certain things were going on that other people couldn’t of done but the government. The FBI was forced to discontinue this program in 1971, but not local police departments. After September 11 FBI director Hoover was brought back from the dead in the image of John Aschorft.

    Offices receiving copies of this letter are instructed to immediately establish a control file, captioned as above.

    The purpose of this new counterintelligence endeavor is to expose, disrupt, misdirect, or otherwise neutralize the activities of black nationalist…their leadership, supporters, spokesmen…promptly take advantage of all opportunities for counterintelligence and to inspire action in instances were circumstances warrant. The pernicious background of such groups, their duplicity, and devious maneuvers must be exposed to public scrutiny where such publicity will have a neutralizing effect. [That means the media will be joined in as a bride to the conspiracy against Black people. This bride also includes white business corporation. The latest evidence was the government using manufactures of planes to bug the Chinese] Efforts of various groups to consolidate their forces or recruit new or youthful adherents must be frustrated. No opportunity should be missed to exploit through counterintelligence techniques the organizational and personal conflicts of the leadership of the groups…capitalize upon existing conflicts between competing Black nationalist organizations…through the cooperation of established local news media contacts or through such contact with sources available to the seat of government, in every instance careful attention must be given to the proposal to insure the targeted group is disrupted, ridiculed or discredited through the publicity and not merely publicized.

    You are urged to take an enthusiastic and imaginative approach to this new counterintelligence endeavor and the bureau will be pleased to entertain any suggestions or techniques you may recommend.


    1. Prevent the coalition of militant Black Nationalist groups. In unity there is strength. An effective coalition of Black Nationalist groups might be the first step toward a real “Mau Mau” in America, the beginning of a true black revolution.
    2. Prevent the rise of a “Messiah” who could unify, and electrify, the militant Black Nationalist movement. Malcolm X might have been such a messiah; he is the martyr of the movement today. Martin l king all aspire to this position, Elijah Muhammad is less of a threat because of his age. Martin l king a very real contender for this position should he abandon his supposed obedience to white liberal doctrines (non violence)
    3. Prevent violence
    4. Prevent militant black nationalist groups and leaders from gaining respectability, by discrediting them to three separate segments of the community…be handled tactically in three ways. You must discredit these groups and individuals to first, the responsible Negro community. Second, they must be discredited to the white community, both the responsible community and to liberals who have vestiges of sympathy for militant black groups simply because they are Negroes. Third, these groups must be discredited in the eyes of Negro radicals, the followers of the movement. This requires entirely different tactics from the first two. Publicity about violent tendencies and radical statements merely enhances and adds respectability in a different way
    5. Xerox copies of true documents subtly incorporating false information, and entirely fabricated documents would be periodically anonymously mailed. These documents would be on the stationery and in the form used by the police department. The attempt is to give the impression the documents were stolen from police files by a disgruntled police employee sympathetic to their cause…pinpointing targets as FBI informants; ridiculing or discrediting leaders through their ineptness, or personal escapades.

    6. A final goal should be to prevent the long-range growth of militant groups, especially among youth. Specific tactics to prevent these groups from converting young people must be developed

    Targets: leaders and organization that are nationwide in scope and are most capable of disrupting this country.

    Two sources of information led me to believe that FBI Hoover was coming back from the dead. One, Nat Hentoff a newspaper reporter and Laura Murphy, director of the American Civil liberties.

    Miss Murphy was asked in the current NAACP Crisis magazine. “Some see the long shadow of Cointelpro…over this legislation (USA Patriot Act) is this a fair comparison?”

    Murphy: “T think it is”

    Nat Hentoff recently wrote:

    “For example, the attorney general was not asked about his resurrection of long-abandoned FBI practices -- practices which were set aside because they were shown to be attacks on the First and Fourth amendments.
    From 1956 to 1971, under an initiative known as COINTELPRO, the FBI infiltrated and disrupted political and religious groups supposedly linked to communism. Among them: anti-war and civil rights organizations, and other liberal groups dissenting from various government policies and operations.” End of quote
    But what people don’t realize is that the Cointelpro activities really didn’t stop in 1971. Local police use these tactics against people prior to Sept 11. You were subjected under these criminal activities if local business and religious leaders don’t like:
    1. What you think or believe
    2. If you write your US Senator accusing prominent leaders of crimes
    3. Suing one of the top Employers in that community
    4. Writing against your community receiving an “All American City Award”
    5. Or defaming a city that was the first to adopt and incorporate the official name of the RNC. Which happens to be in Jackson, Michigan
