Fun with the FBI

The FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigations) has a motto: “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity.” It could also easily be “Fabricate, Burglarize, Intimidate.” Or at least that's what a group of American citizens who called themselves the Citizens Commission to Investigate the FBI thought back in 1971.
