Boxes of documents that contained FBI info on John Kerry's actions during the Vietnam War were stolen from Gerald Nicosia's house. Nicosia wrote the book Home At War: A History of the Vietnam Veterans Movement. Mr. Nicosia spend more than 12 years collecting the documents from the FBI through Freedom Of Information act. Then 3 of the 14 boxes in his home were stolen. Nicosia said,
"It was a very clean burglary. They didn't break any glass. They didn't take anything like cameras sitting by. It was a very professional job.
Was it a thrill-seeker who wanted a piece of history? It could be. You'd think there was a very strong political motivation for taking those files. The odds are in favor of that".

I admit it, we did it. The documents were stolen last Thursday. Last Monday, five members, including myself, made plans to steal all 14 boxes but were only able to get three.

I love this. There's a very strong political motivation for taking the files. If the Right-Wing Attack Machine wanted the files, couldn't they have just requested them like Nicosia did. Why steal them? I mean if this author could get them, I'm sure they could.
