I'm watching CSPAN's Book TV. The Burglary - The Discovery of J. Edgar Hoover's Secret FBI http://www.randomhouse.com/book/224642/the-burglary-by-betty-medsger http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens'_Commission_to_Investigate_the_FBI Once again, some very important stories rarely make a blip in the mainstream media. The NY Times had an article: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/07/us/burglars-who-took-on-fbi-abandon-shadows.html And reliable Amy Goodman and the Democracy Now investigative reporters did an in depth story. http://www.democracynow.org/2014/1/8/it_was_time_to_do_more http://www.democracynow.org/blog/2014/1/8/from_cointelpro_to_snowden_the_fbi From COINTELPRO to Snowden, the FBI Burglars Speak Out After 43 Years of Silence So, why should you care, besides the fact watching this program is absolutely fascinating and I highly recommend it to everyone (CSPAN BookTV can be seen free online)? Today's NSA has given the data it got spying on the Occupy Wall Street movement to the corporations the people were protesting against. It suggests we have a government not of the people, by the people, but instead a government over the people by the powerful. And things are little different from the 70s. The spying on war protesters and civil rights workers which was disclosed, caused outrage, and was curtailed for a while, is back.
