The History of the FBI's Secret Enemy's List

NPR just reran its 2012 interview of Tim Weiner whose book, "Enemies: A History of the FBI" examines the Bureau's history from its beginning to the war on terror today. But the most interesting part of the interview was how J. Edgar Hoover began to worry about Communists everywhere in the United States and started illegal secret intelligence operations against everybody, including politicians and presidents. You can listen to the Fresh Air interview here and you can read the NPR story here.
