More sordid U.S. history - COINTELPRO



On March 8th, 1971 eight antiwar activists broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania and stole over 1,000 classified documents which revealed J. Edgar Hoover's criminal government operation, COINTELPRO.

The eight antiwar activists called themselves the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI.
