This is truly a miscellaneous grouping of items, some of which have at least minimal basis in actual events and others that seem to be pure fabrication. This is an area where clarity is truly rarer than the proverbial hen's teeth.
With all due respect to conspiracy theorists and those who enjoy the work of conspiracy theorists, no effort has been or will be made to gather or categorize the material accusing the CIA or other U.S. intelligence individuals and entities of complicity in the John F. Kennedy and/or Martin Luther King, Jr., assassinations. Too much of this literature -- nay, all with which I have come in contact -- is utter nonsense and undeserving of serious study. Readers seeking to fuel their fantasies in this area should look for solace elsewhere. Some works refuting various conspiracy theories have also been included here (for example, Bugliosi's Reclaiming History (2007).
