Southern rapper T.I. and Busta Rhymes are delivering some woke words on Labor Day. The duo have hit up social media to share a story headline about music icon Bob Marley allegedly being secretly killed by the CIA.
On Monday, both Tip and Busta went to Instagram to share the jaw-dropping report.
Recently, a story emerged about a Marley’s alleged CIA assassin taking credit for his death.
However, startling claims have emerged of a deathbed confession made by an ex-CIA officer, where he admitted to the killing. 79-year-old Bill Oxley is alleged to have claimed the murder of Marley among 17 other assassinations for the American government between 1974 and 1985, at a time when he said the CIA “was a law unto itself.” Oxley, who reportedly worked as an operative for the CIA for 29 years, is alleged to have said he was often used as a hitman on targets deemed to “represent a threat to the interests of the United States.” (Daily Star)
Despite the hefty claim, additional media outlets believe the ex-CIA employee announcement could be bogus.
Your News Wire does not provide a single source for the story, despite including extensive quotations from the supposedly dying Oxley. The site also has a history of writing false articles, including ones about deathbed confessions from CIA agents. We could find no record of a Bill or William Oxley having any association with the CIA, and neither his name, the quotations attributed to him, nor the basic facts of Your News Wire’s story are corroborated anywhere else.
