First in June of this year, it was uncovered that the FBI had targeted a past University of California president with political smears and more for their own political agenda. See the San Francisco Chronicle article documenting a 17 year legal battle to arrive at the truth.
Now, another smear campaign from the past is uncovered. Once again the target is liberal, this time the FOIA obtained documents imply "young activists will pay the rest of their lives for their actions". This statement taken from Army Intelligence.
The still uncovered stories of far worse abuses of more vunerable activists abound.
The story is that government turned over their dirty tricks departments to private political/religious groups once the congress put a stop to COINTELPRO.
