You may recall that a few weeks back I covered the important new book about the infamous 1971 "citizens committee" break-in at an FBI office in Pennsylvania that revealed the notorious COINTELPRO domestic spy program and more. Of course, I followed the story back then in 1971 and even had strong connection to some COINTELPRO victims (I was probably surveiled myself). Tonight, a film based on the same episode debuts at he Tribeca Film Festival in New York, and AP just posted interviews with director and a producer--none other than Laura Poitras of NSA/Snowden fame....So, natch, we get valid connections to the NSA scandal today.
