Church Committee Members on Covert Actions Against American Citizens

Covert Actions Against American Citizens Living in America

In the following videos, members of the Church Committee talk about covert actions against American citizens living in America—then and now.

The full story of COINTELPRO may never be told. The Bureau's files were never seized by Congress or the courts or sent to the National Archives. Some were destroyed. In addition, many counterintelligence operations were never committed to writing as such, or involved open investigations making ex-operatives legally prohibited from talking about them. Most operations remained secret until long after the damage had been done.
