This just in. That wily bastard J. Edgar Hoover just couldn't get enought of those wacky authoritarian shenanigans. F'rinstance, he wanted to intern about 12,000 Americans he suspected of not being 100% in the Cold War. A man of vision, when you get down to it.
Poor guy missed out on a time that could bring him new glories. He and his boys could have a high old time in the Big Easy.
