From a Lawyer, Guns and Money post:
And this leads Communist leaders to say hurtful things to one another. The fascinating moving parts:
- The apparent belief of Zhou Enlai that the MLK assassination was orchestrated by the U.S. government.
- The notion that accepting the idea of peace talks gave the U.S. government the leeway it needed to carry out the assassination.
- The notion that, even if this were true, Le Duan would care enough about MLK one way or the other to change policy.
