Bringing Down America: An FBI Informer With the Weathermen
 

Authored by Larry Grathwohl
As told by Frank Reagan
Edition: 2

In 1969, Larry Grathwohl stepped out of his life and became, according to Time magazine, "the only FBI informant known to have successfully penetrated the Weather Underground."

For a year, Grathwohl ran with America's most dangerous radicals. He watched them plan bombings, murders, and political assassinations. He moved in a world of Maoist brainwashing, drugs, and enforced sexual experimentation, with a gang of thugs dedicated to bringing down America.

This book was first published in 1976. At the time, nobody could have imagined that the criminal leaders of the Weather Underground would elude punishment and rise to positions of authority in American public life. But today, they are influential professors, national leaders in K - 12 education "reform," and advisors to President Obama's Recovery Act.

Grathwohl's story is now more important than ever. He exposes the network of American radicals, international terrorists, clergymen, journalists, and college professors who helped the Weathermen elude capture and continue to help in the cover-up of their crimes. On one occasion, his quick action averted the bombing of a Detroit police station - just one story you will find in this book that the former leaders of the Weather Underground would like to keep buried.
