Yesterday the FBI released its 423 page file on the late political activist and “historian” Howard Zinn. David Knowles at AOL News focuses on three highlights:
1. Several FBI informants identified Zinn as a member of the Communist Party, but Zinn denied it.
2. Despite his commitment to non-violence, Zinn claimed he would defend his country “in the event of a war against any enemy, including the Soviet Union.”
3. The FBI renewed its interest in Zinn after he wrote an article critical of Bobby Kennedy and the FBI.
