Interview of Christopher Andrew, co-author of The Sword and the Shield

Gross, Terry

NPR’s “fresh Air” radio program, September 30, 1999

Andrew told how the KGB hated Martin Luther King, Jr., and wanted to harm him. They rejoiced in his assassination because he was a healer. He was a reconciler who was preventing the race war the KGB wanted, and had been seeking to ignite for at least a decade by a policy of sowing racial hatred in the U.S. via fraudulent pamphlets and newsletters. Wicked! And ironic, because the FBI kept suspecting King of being in bed with the communists and, at minimum, of being their dupe!
