Felt Up in Heaven, or Down in Hell?

"Journalists and many others (rightly) lionizing the late W. Mark Felt, the former FBI official, for his contribution as 'Deep Throat' in helping to bring down Richard Nixon, should not overlook the fact that Felt was one of the architects of the bureau's notorious COINTELPRO domestic spying-and-burglary campaign," writes Greg Mitchell of Editor and Publisher. Mitchell notes that some of the people spied on included journalists and personal friends of his, including Stew Albert and Judy Gumbo. FBI agents illegally spied on them (even though they had committed no crime) by hiding in the woods near their cabin, breaking in at least half a dozen times, opening their mail, inspecting their bank records, bugging their bedroom, and planting a homing device in their car.
