COINTELPRO and the Omaha Two
--An Interview with Michael Richardson
By Angola 3 News
In 2007, veteran journalist Michael Richardson began writing a series of articles for OpEdNews.com about Ed Poindexter and Mondo we Langa, who are two Black Panther political prisoners known as the Omaha Two. Richardson argues that they were framed for the 1970 murder of a policeman as part of the FBI's notorious counterintelligence program, dubbed "COINTELPRO." This top-secret and illegal operation was a dirty war on the entire US Left, including the civil rights & Black liberation movements.
