I was wondering why no one had jumped on this story. I mean so many folks are against the CIA and what they are doing.
A lot of interesting history here.
The documents, to be publicly released next week, also include accounts of break-ins and theft, the agency's opening of private mail to and from China and the Soviet Union, wiretaps and surveillance of journalists, and a series of "unwitting" tests on U.S. civilians, including the use of drugs.
We can't be so naive to think only the US has done these kinds of things.

Other "skeletons" listed in the summary included the "very productive" 1963 wiretapping of two columnists -- Robert Allen and Paul Scott -- whose conversations included talks with 12 Senators and six congressmen; and the "personal surveillances" for two months in 1972 of muckraking columnist Jack Anderson and staff members, including Les Whitten and Brit Hume, and of Washington Post reporter Mike Getler between October 1971 and April 1972.
