Tim Weiner s Enemies A History of the FBI is an interesting book about the FBI s straddling the line between legal and illegal pursuit of criminals The book spends a lot of time discussing the career and legacy of J Edgar Hoover dispelling myths most evidence discounts the commonly held belief that he was a closeted homosexual and describing in detail his relentless pursuit of power in his personal fight against Communism which colored most if not all of his tenure There are some great timeless uotes which bear relevance today In 1920 in freeing 13 prisoners held in abysmal conditions on Deer Island having been arrested with highly uestionable techniues Judge George Anderson said A mob is a mob whether made up of government officials acting under instructions from the Department of Justice or criminals loafers or the vicious classes P 40 The corrupt president Harding and his Attorney General Harry Dougherty exemplified many of the same characteristics of our current administration and Hoover thrived in this environment Alice Roosevelt Longworth Harding was not a bad man He was just a slob a slack good natured man with an unfortunate disposition to surround himself with intimates of uestionable character P 53 Sad to note that some things never change History records the various scandals such as the Teapot Dome bribes of 300000 taken by the Secretary of the Interior from oil companies among others Unfortunately Hoover and the FBI were so obsessed with chasing the Reds that little was done to stop this and revelations were made after Harding s death in 1923 It was disheartening to read that FDR allowed Hoover to accumulate vast amounts of information on suspected Nazis and Communists obtained via illegal wiretaps and black bag break ins Rarely however was this information able to be used to thwart evil doers That being said the FBI was key in breaking the various Nazi cyphers which did help the war effort However a dangerous precedent was set when occasionally the targets were political opponents rather than real dangers to American democracy In the 50s Hoover went after homosexuals and Communists which he lumped into the same category with a vengeance creating the environment of paranoia exploited for political gains for a short time by the notorious Senator McCarthy It is unsettling to note that the FBI kept a Sex Deviates Program in operation which destroyed many lived and careers and which really only ended in 2011 when homosexuals were able to openly serve in the US military p 176 After Brown vs Board of Education which made segregation of schools illegal the KKK went on a burning and killing spree which was largely ignored by Hoover who was among other things a racist himself Bill Sullivan He hated liberalism he hated blacks he hated Jews he had a this great long list of hates P 199 This irrational hatred led Hoover and the FBI to target the entire Civil Rights movement including MLK and others as Communist sympathizers for which wiretaps were sought and obtained Weiner does not accuse the FBI of being involved in the big political assassinations of the 60s JFK RFK MLK etc but he does describe Hoover s antagonism with each of these figuresNaturally there is also lengthy discussion of Watergate and the 911 WTC attack The latter however is a bit hurried as it is given far less space than the Hoover period I recall being nearly convinced by some of the 911 conspiracy theories that circulated in the aftermath but see from Weiner s book that facts would tend to discount any collusion whatsoever between Bush and the attacks It was incompetence and inter agency rivalry that allowed al uaeda to perform this horrific dead and there were multiple warnings that were ignored due to bureaucracy rather than willful ignorance One can still wonder why Bush allowed the Bin Laden family to leave to Saudi Arabia immediately after the attacks when all other flights were grounded but this is not discussed and therefore at least to me remains mysteriousAs for the overall book it is of a condemnation of the FBI s overreach than a year by year history of the Bureau I would have liked information on what they did right in pursuing the mafia in the 30s to 50s for instance and less of the Communist paranoia Also I was left with some uncertainty as to the overlapping jurisdictions of the FBI the Justice Department the CIA and the NSA but then perhaps that was Weiner s point the lack of a charter for the FBI since its founding left room for too much interpretation and this abuse of power over the years On a positive note the description of Mueller s tenure gives me confidence that in his current role as a special prosecutor he is probably the one man that has the integrity to stand up to power in these troubled timesHighly recommended reading in the wake of Comey s firing and the legal battles that will certainly plague DC for the foreseeable future I can t wait to see Comey s
