In reality, evidence reveals James Earl Ray was inducted into the CIA as a young man in the U.S. Army and subjected to mind control experimentation--in the same era when psychological drugs are known to have been administered by the armed services to unknowing recruits in an attempt to control human behavior. Later, in the two years prior to the King assassination, Ray was under the influence of several government-connected hypnotists seemingly working to make him an obedient patsy.
Ray's case never went to trial, and many, including the King family, concluded that there had been a conspiracy, yet a government investigation in 2000 revealed that there was no evidence to suggest it.
In Truth At Last, Ray's eldest brother John Larry Ray and Martin Luther King Jr. historian Lyndon Barsten, offer incontrovertible evidence that James Earl Ray could not have assassinated Dr. King. John Larry Ray reveals the true secret history of his infamous brother, who for a lifetime claimed, "The Army put me on the road to ruin." Barsten documents John Larry Ray's assertions by drawing on scores of personal interviews and more than 4,000 Freedom of Information Act requests--including Ray's Army unit records. Together, they offer a startling new look at Ray's life, his encounters with theFeds and the Mob, and the crime that shook the world.
John Larry Ray is the eldest brother of James Earl Ray and was witness to much of his brother's covert life. John has spent 25 years in federal prison falsely imprisoned by the federal government for knowing too much about the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. He lives in Illinois. Lyndon Barsten is a lay historian who lectures frequently about the murder of Martin Luther King Jr. and has done so for the U.S. Congressional Black Caucus. Barsten's activism has freed up tens of thousands of new pages of materials on the MLK assassination. He lives with his family in Minnesota.
