Surveillance of MIT: From Cointelpro to Chelsea Manning Saul Tannenbaum @stannenb saultannenbaum.org
COINTELPRO – Counterintelligence Program “The FBI began COINTELPRO in 1956 to disrupt the activities of the Communist Party of the United States. In the 1960s, it was expanded to include a number of other domestic groups, such as the Ku Klux Klan, the Socialist Workers Party, and the Black Panther Party. All COINTELPRO operations were ended in 1971. … COINTELPRO was later rightfully criticized by Congress and the American people for abridging first amendment rights and for other reasons.” - vault.fbi.gov
