The British Security Coordination was this kind of inane, bland name for this covert British operation which involved spying, wiretapping, making up stories, forging documents, all designed to get the United States into the war on Britain’s side. It was based in Rockefeller Center, had more than a thousand employees, top-secret, nobody really knew about it except FDR, J. Edgar Hoover, the head of the FBI, and a few others. And so basically there were all these British agents who were - as I said - working very, very hard to do whatever they needed to do to get us into the war. And among the things that they did, they dug up dirt on American isolationists. They wiretapped and spied on members of Congress who were isolationists. They planted British propaganda in American newspapers. I mean, it was an extraordinary campaign and all totally illegal.
