Very interesting history here from an old episode of Frontline

Part 2 gets into the Kennedy Brothers going after the 'Mafia' -- in spite of J.Edgar:

1. K & R! (Also, Google-bookmarked)
As receptive as I am to allegations that Hoover was corrupt (as well as being a slimey HYPOCRITE), I always check them out very carefully before accepting them (and passing them on along). There's plenty of 'keywords' in those two video clips to feed into a search engine, and check them out.

THANKS!

3. Why does the FBI seem incapable of infiltrating Republican terrorist groups?

4. History Channel: Beltway Unbuckled
This special takes a serious but highly entertaining look at the fascinating ways the sex lives of our nation's leaders have impacted American history and shaped the country we live in today. Some of the stories uncovered: how J. Edgar Hoover used his secret sex files to become one of the most powerful figures in Washington; although Woodrow Wilson may have won World War I, his wife Edith may have caused World War II; why FDR's dreams for the post World War II world were contained in the long lost diary of one of the women who was with him when he died; and how JFK's fling with an East German beauty nearly ended his administration.
