Conspiracy Theory

Posted By on Tue, Mar 21, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Simple explanations just won't do. It's much more fascinating to think the government was in on terrorist plots and assassinations.

In the first article in a three-part series on the History News Network's website, Mel Ayton, author of several books on famous conspiracy theories, takes a look at the thinking behind theories surrounding the JFK and MLK assassinations.

Ayton says theories accusing the Memphis police of having a hand in the Martin Luther King Jr. assassination stem from flawed testimony by people who claimed to have witnessed a second shooter. He says conspiracy theorists also believe Memphis police didn't secure the site around the Lorraine Motel immediately, which could implicate them as being in on the scheme.
