He Confessed His Role In Malcolm X's Death On His Own Deathbed

On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was killed. But the story of his life and death doesn’t just stop there. In 2011, former NYPD officer Raymond Wood added his own chapter to Malcolm’s story – while on what he THOUGHT was his deathbed.

Wood wrote in a letter describing how he was assigned “to infiltrate civil rights organizations throughout New York City … so the FBI could discredit and arrest its leaders.” 

Then came the bombshell about Malcolm’s death – literally.

After a plot to blow up the Statue of Liberty was “discovered,” Wood got Malcolm X’s security detail arrested for the crime – leaving him open to be murdered mid-speech five days later!  

But this confession had a catch.

Thinking he would soon die of cancer, Wood requested that his letter not be made public until after his death – you can guess why. But he didn’t die until November 2020, and the men convicted of Malcolm’s murder were only exonerated a year later. 

How many other people like Woods are sitting on damning confessions they’re too afraid to share?

While the truth comes out about one thing half a century later, the FBI, police departments, and CIA are busy doing and covering up another. The dishonest criminal “justice” system consistently puts all of us in danger just to hunt people, like Malcolm X, who fight to make our lives better.
