CBS News reports on a little known decade-long surveillance operation designed to spy on American citizens. FBI started the operation in the late 1970s under the Reagan's administration. It was conceived as an anti-Soviet initiative to limit the communist propaganda in the United States but eventually turned into a widespread domestic spying, CBS reports. Surprisingly, central to the program was then-undercover Soviet spy Robert Hanssen.
