Tim Weiner on His History of the FBI

Monday, February 20, 2012

Tim Weiner offers the first definitive history of the FBI’s secret intelligence operations. Enemies: A History of the FBI is the story of how presidents have used the FBI, and Weiner exposes the hidden history of America’s hundred-year war on terror, in which the FBI has fought against terrorists, spies, and anyone it deemed subversive.

Leopate asked why the FBI is more effective under Obama, this delusional dude actually responded that Obama is a fan of constitutional laws. LOL!!! Is he a comedian?

You asked your guest about Hoover and lynching in the South -- he didn't answer.

So why did the focus shift so much to Communism after WWII was over? Who decided that there was little (if any) need to combat fascism anymore?
