In the early 1970's, it was revealed that US govenrment agencies, including the FBI, CIA, NSA and IRS, were being used as part of a deliberate plan to infiltrate and disrupt political opponents, and this plan had continued for 20 years under four different Presidents, both Democratic and Republican.
