Declassified Documents Reveal FBI Surveillance of Broadcaster William Cooper
The Federal Government Went to Great Lengths to Collect Data on Author and Radio Broadcaster William Cooper.
An FOIA request filed by Kristan T. Harris of The Rundown Live resulted in the release of hundreds of documents related to former United States Naval Intelligence officer, author and radio broadcaster William (Bill) Cooper from Eagar, Arizona.
The unclassified documents paint Cooper’s controversial actions as “hosting a talk show by means of short-wave radio,” as well as “frequently condemning the federal government, Justice Department and the FBI for the ‘atrocities’ at Waco and Ruby Ridge”. The records punctuate the point that Bill was, “convinced there is a government sponsored socialist conspiracy to establish a ‘new world order’” multiple times throughout the FBI’s investigations.
Cooper, best known for his underground best seller, “Behold a Pale Horse”, caught the FBI’s attention in 1997 over controversial allegations surrounding the Oklahoma City (OKC) bombing and Timothy McVeigh, the FOIA shows. In his broadcast, Hour of the Time, he often called the tragic incident a false flag attack by criminal elements of our government.
Shortly after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, Rush Limbaugh read a White House memo on the air during his broadcast which named William Cooper, “…the most dangerous radio host in America”.
This contributed to Cooper believing that he was personally targeted by President Bill Clinton and the IRS for tax evasion. He often addressed his concerns over his daily broadcast, Hour of the Time, and Project VERITAS publications.
