Contrary to the common view, there is really no mystery about how Merton died.

The best evidence indicates beyond any serious doubt that Merton was murdered.

It's a simple fact that the average person is far more likely to be murdered than to be

killed by an electric fan, and Merton was no average person. The story that a fan killed

Merton is so preposterous that a series of fantastic stories have had to be invented to

make it believable".Who did it and why? The CIA had the motive and the means.

1968: It was a very dark year: MLK, RFK, and Thomas Merton -- martyrs all.

If we want to see clearly and revive hope, the time has come to face the faces of the ghastly gallery of liars and deceivers guilty of these crimes. Only then can we live the truths their victims suffered and died for.

Then we too can confess with Merton that we have thought "Crimes Against the State."
