+ - Mystery of 1000's of FBI documents posted to US press in 1971 solved->

Submitted by AHuxley
AHuxley (892839) writes "A team of eight antiwar activists broke into an FBI office in Media, Pennsylvania and removed at least 1000 documents.
Once removed and sorted, the bulk of the files showed FBI spying on US political groups. Cointelpro had been found.
43 year later more details about how the anonymously packages ended up with select US reporters weeks later.
Years later the full extent of COINTELPRO (COunter INTELligence PROgram) was finally understood."
