We repeat the history we don;t understand or are aware. The lessons in this book speak directly to many of the problems we currently have with NSA spying how how it has become unstoppable.
The FBI literally wrote the book that is still being used to this day.
Fred J. Cook's THE FBI NOBODY KNOWS revealed that Hoover would reject Jews, women, Hispanics, Italians and African Americans sight unseen.
As it turns out, I never heard back from the FBI even with that score. My record as a war-time veteran and former law enforcement officer for a NY State police unit, Adelphi University graduate (later elected to its Alumni Association Academy of Distinction, did not help.
Although I was born in NYC I am still a Hispanic. Today's additional revelation of Hoover's bizarre letter to Dr. Martin Luther King, suggesting to him that he commit suicide, is particularly bitter.
This book came to be known as "The Cook book" among FBI agents, and it is a most courageous work in literature because of the power held by Hoover at the time.
