    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Little-known documents now being made public detail illegal and scandalous activities by the CIA more than 30 years ago: wiretapping of journalists, kidnappings, warrantless searches and more.
    ...

    Among them:

    -The "two-year physical confinement" in the mid-1960s of a Soviet defector.

    ...

    -CIA wiretapping in 1963 of two columnists, Robert Allen and Paul Scott, following a newspaper column in which national security information was disclosed. The wiretapping revealed calls from 12 senators and six representatives but did not indicate the source of the leak.

    Never trust anyone with power, no matter what they promise on TV.
