(FBI Director) “Mawn was almost one of 3,024 victims. He had a personal stake in getting even.” (with whoever 9/11 was blamed on) “The SIO Center was a $20 million, 20-room complex of phones, secure computers, and video screens.” “America’s war on terrorism had begun, and the FBI was at its epicenter.”
Attorney general Palmer created a radical division in 1919 to collect information on American rebels. “The biggest threats were considered the American Communist Labor Party and the American Communist Party,… Palmer placed the new division under the direction of attorney J. Edgar Hoover.” “Two ideas were constantly drummed into us: pride at membership in an elite organization, and fear of failure.” FBI Director Hoover kept ‘secret files’ on politicians, which guaranteed he remained director, he sent threats to those he wanted to put in their place, and helped create a war on communism which gave him job security. “As the power of the FBI grew, Hoover’s thirst for glory would become unquenchable.” Secret documents were often destroyed, so that no one outside the FBI would ever have the file evidence that certain operations ever existed. “Hoover left nothing to chance.”
McCarthy, besides being an alcoholic, the senator was “crazy about girls about 18” Trohan said, “I always thought if the commies wanted to get him, all they had to do was supply him with a girl.” McCarthy said the FBI was a monument to its own director. Director Hoover knew McCarthy “made up numbers”, and “advised him to not give specifics numbers”. “Besides harassing journalistic critics, Hoover used the bureau to crack down on rumors that he was a homosexual.”
“But there was more to Hoover’s policy of ignoring organized crime than statistics. In 1993, Anthony Summers ( in Secret Life of J. Edgar Hoover) claimed that Hoover did not pursue organized crime because the Mafia had blackmail material on him.” “Hoover was wearing a very fluffy black dress, and a black curly wig. He had make-up on and false eye-lashes.” Another time in drag, Hoover held a Bible as one boy read from it, and the other boy “played with him”.- Summers quoted Rosenstiel.
“Hoover told a Senate sub-committee that militant Catholic priests and nuns were plotting to ‘blow up underground electrical conduits and pipes serving Washington DC, to disrupt federal government operations’. The plotters, he said, were also planning to kidnap a highly placed government official who was later identified as Kissinger.”
In 1971 (same year as the Pentagon Papers) over 1000 FBI files were stolen by thieves called the ‘Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI’, and the documents they released to the public revealed that the FBI had informants on college campuses and monitored left-wing groups.
