Deep Underground for the FBI
Former FBI Undercover Agent
The Ramada, 9:00 a.m., Friday, September 12th
In the turbulent 1960’s several revolutionary groups were formed with the goal of bringing down the United States, which in their view was a racist, war mongering, imperialist nation. They wanted to replace capitalism with a more ” just”, socialistic system. The Weather Underground Organization (WUO), which sprung out of the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS), was the most violent of these groups. They described themselves as a Marxist-Leninist organization, and received training in Cuba from Cuban (DGI), Vietnamese (NLF), and Soviet (KGB) operatives. They participated in well over 20 bombings, including the bombings of the U.S. Capitol, the Pentagon, and other military targets as well as fire bombing the home of a federal judge, at night, while he was home asleep with his wife and children. To this day they remain the primary suspects in the bombing of A San Francisco Police Sub Station which killed one officer, blinded a second and injured three more.
J. Edgar Hoover was initially reticent to permit infiltration of these groups. However, Reagan pushed to be allowed to go undercover and join these organizations which, despite Hoover’s reservations, he was permitted to do. In an effort to locate the WUO fugitives, Reagan dropped out of society, then surfaced in Berkeley with a “resume” of radical revolutionary credentials. He lived in a world involving clandestine communications, mail drops, and safe houses and ultimately he was invited by the WUO to participate in the bombing of the office of a conservative California state senator. Under their direction, he helped them build the bomb. He was in continuous touch with his supervisor and when the group was getting ready to place the bomb he gave the signal and five arrests were made. In the accompanying searches, 10 pounds of dynamite were seized in the “bomb factory,” as well as another 100 pounds in a nearby garage the WUO had rented, along with several hundred pieces of false identification and numerous firearms.
During his career he also infiltrated and developed prosecutable evidence against the Columbian Cali Cartel, the traditional Mafia, the Japanese Mafia (Yakuza), the Russian Mafia, and much more.
