John Potash, author of The FBI War On Tupac and Black Leaders, says the FBI Killed Tupac Shakur. His book is based on 12 years of research. It includes 1,000 endnotes, sources from over 100 interviews, FOIA-released CIA and FBI documents, court transcripts and more.
Potash presents the idea that the American government has conducted deadly missions against minority leaders using FBI COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) style tactics since the 1960s. Potash suggested that Tupac was seen as a threat because of his political affiliations and his influence on balck culture.Write comment (0 Comments)
