A Look Back At The Birth Of The FBI

Although the leadership of the FBI has come under fire for inappropriate actions of late, this should not distract from the rank-and-file special agents who do a fine job of combating crime and protecting American citizens.   

I’ve covered the FBI for many years, and I’ve interviewed a good number of special agents, including legendary FBI undercover agent Joseph Pistone and legendary FBI profiler John Douglas, so I was interested in reading FBI historian John F. Fox, Jr.’s piece on the birth of the FBI. 

You can read about the FBI’s rich and dramatic history via the below link:
