@Falcor theres a time leak in my soup


So this predates the 1998 reveal of Groucho’s FBI file. Nice time leak–I need to check to see if there’s an updated edition.


what was revealed?


Not much. The original article was in The Nation, now paywalled, but here’s article that does a good job summing up just how little they found.

I first heard about it on “The Daily Show” which didn’t have much trouble treating the story as a joke. The FBI did most of the work making it one.
