LBJ and J. Edgar Hoover discussing Mississippi Civil Rights Workers' Murders (1964)

This is a very interesting communication between the president and the head of the FBI. I don't know if I believe the part about the local authorities cooperating with the federal agents. Notice how FBI director Hoover assumes right away that the young men have been killed. After that he tries to say it's  possible that the rights workers faked their own abduction.
