— NPR's Mandalit Del Barco reports that the FBI has declassified most of its secret files on John Lennon. A history professor in southern California battled the agency in court for 14 years to get the documents released. Apparently, the Nixon Administration considered Lennon a threat to national security and had the FBI keep him under surveillence. The files include memos from undercover agents and confidential sources detailing Lennon's actions and movements.
