Homework Help: History

Posted by Cassie on Sunday, August 19, 2007 at 12:48pm.

Why was the United States involved in Patrice Lumumba's assassination?

Even in the late fifties, "the communists are coming..."paranoia had grips on the US, fanned by partisian politics of the far Right.
It isn't clear to me that the CIA was involved directly in the acutal assination, although they had prepared to do it.

So Patrice was spreading communism and the you think that the CIA killed him so that leads up to the suspicion of the United States?


Patrice was spreading communism. It is not clear the CIA killed him. Read the link I posted.
