Thank you so much for highlighting and detailing something that’s been troubling me for a long time. People who are too young to remember the 60s, 70s, and onward need to study history. Learn what COINTELPRO was, for example.
The FBI, CIA, etc. are NOT friends of the people. George Bush may look good in comparison to the idiot-in-chief, but he is NOT. Remember Iraq, weapons of mass destruction, etc.?
And Obama is practically deified these days. I voted for him twice and I’d do it again, but not because I think he was/is a saint.
No one gets to a position of power in government without having made a series of soul-sucking compromises. They are all immensely flawed and need to be regarded with jaundiced eyes.
