In memory of Dr. Martin Luther King
Al Gore, in a speech punctuated by multiple standing ovations, said today
On this particular Martin Luther King Day, it is especially important to recall that for the last several years of his life, Dr. King was illegally wiretapped-one of hundreds of thousands of Americans whose private communications were intercepted by the U.S. government during this period.Reading Gore's speech this evening is the best way to honor and remember Dr. King that I can think of.
The FBI privately called King the "most dangerous and effective negro leader in the country" and vowed to "take him off his pedestal." The government even attempted to destroy his marriage and blackmail him into committing suicide.
This campaign continued until Dr. King's murder . . .
