This series re-examines a wave of mob bombings that occurred in the late 1960s in Tucson. It reveals, for the first time, how the FBI cut short its investigation of a suspect with close ties to the bureau and used threats to discourage state and local police from investigating, citing national security concerns. The series includes the first press interview with the accused agent, breaking his silence of 35 years, and makes extensive use of FBI records previously undisclosed and police records that initially were said to have been destroyed.
