RICHARD W. HELD
has been an FBI COINTELPRO agent since the 60s. He coordinated ops against the L.A. Panthers, including inciting violent confrontations between rival factions and even hiring a right wing militia to kill its members. He was a key spook at Pine Ridge during the bloody anti-AIM ops, directed the draconian Puerto Rico ops in the 80s, and bombed EarthFirst! activist Judi Bari. Lawsuits resulting from that incident of domestic state terrorism have further exposed the subject's long history of abuse.
