Howard Zinn and the FBI

Yesterday the FBI released its 423 page file on the late political activist and “historian” Howard Zinn. David Knowles at AOL News focuses on three highlights:

1. Several FBI informants identified Zinn as a member of the Communist Party, but Zinn denied it.

2. Despite his commitment to non-violence, Zinn claimed he would defend his country “in the event of a war against any enemy, including the Soviet Union.”

3. The FBI renewed its interest in Zinn after he wrote an article critical of Bobby Kennedy and the FBI.

One thought on “Howard Zinn and the FBI

  1. That's our tax dollars hard at work. Just because someone exercises his 1st amendment rights in a provocative way, he immediately falls under the yoke of paranoid governmental suspicion.

    Viva Zinn!!!
