RARE: On Dec 6, 1973, NBC News reporter Carl Stern revealed for the first time about FBI’s COINTELPRO program — which targeted leaders of groups that weren’t supportive of America’s interests.

The FBI knew they were wrong but felt it was justified to protect “national security.”

Stern got the 1st half of info from burglars who stole FBI during Ali/Fraiser’s “Fight of the Century” in 1971, and Barrington Parker, a Black judge, granted the 2nd half of info from a “Freedom of Information Act” lawsuit.
