Wow. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. . .
I find it amazing that the "black bag" operations could ever take place to begin with...
And the FBI had the audacity to raid his home while he was writing his book... Oddly enough though I wasn't surprised when they finally did it. It only confirmed the twisted system he had alleged they were.

Short overview of fbi political repression in the 50s-70s written by a former fbi agent who came public with government wrong-doing.

This stuff is well documented including in the congressional record during the 70s, so conspiracy theory it is not.

Many have feared the "patriot act" would legalize all the crimes of this era.
