"Just the minute the FBI begins making recommendations on what should be done with its information, it becomes a Gestapo!"
The infamous director of the FBI from 1935 – 1972. Deeply flawed, but a well-meaning leader. Always on the edge, Hoover was paranoid of anyone he deemed suspicious of criminal activity, whether there was evidence or not. Hoover abused power during his very long tenure. Deemed women to be unsuited for work in the FBI, and the same for People of Color. FBI Agents during Hoover's heyday were almost always White males. Rumor has it that Hoover also a closet homosexual. Yet these issues are small fry compared to the atrocities the CIA has done during the Cold War. Thanks to Hoover, the FBI has a better public image than the CIA.
