    Just had a talk with Bernadine Dohrn and she says she's surprised that more

    Judging from the messages on critiques of the left and our tactics in the
    60s and 70s, this is a very appropriate subject, especially given that we
    often attack each other more vehemently than we do the right wing. Much of
    our attacks may have been based upon rumors perpetuated by Cointelpro
    agents. I recall reading that forged FBI letters that supposedly revealed
    undercover agents were used to break up the leadership of the BBP.
