The FBI and Occupy Wall St. We’ll speak with investigative journalist Jason Leopold of Truthout regarding his FOIA requests and recent revelations that the FBI was not only monitoring the Occupy Wall St. movement over the past year, but was infiltrating with informants and possibly planning acts of violence against key OWS members. Also, Seth Rosenfeld, author of Subversives: The FBI’s War on Student Radicals and Reagan’s Rise to Power, joins the discussion to offer historical perspective and expand upon these most recent COINTELPRO-style developments.
