FBI Room 6527 Files

Room6527 & GovernmentAttic:

The FBI has been hiding sensitive records of American eavesdropping operations from parliamentary scrutiny for decades. FBI director J. Edgar Hoover (right) gave orders in 1948 for tricky political papers to be stored away in Room 6527 – known as the Confidential File Room – at its Washington headquarters. The records did not show up in any index so that the FBI would be able to deny any knowledge of the relevant documents should a parliamentary control commission ever start to ask questions.

Along with records of US eavesdropping on friendly states, Hoover also stashed away documents about Eastern Block spies or reports about the unusual sexual practices of senior Communist officials and politicians. There were so many documents that they began to threaten the vast official building’s structural mechanics. An internal FBI memo from September 1961 notes that secret papers had to be immediately transferred to other rooms due to the weight of Room 6527’s 26 filing cabinets. Thanks to Freedom of Information Act requests, Government AtticSonntagsZeitung and Le Matin Dimanche have gained access to these historic and previously unpublished intercept records.

  1. There are also manual pumps which you can turn on yourself when needed.
    If not, find out what the plumber would charge you before you hire him.

    A plumber is trained how to use the detection devices and can help quickly
    locate leaks and broken pipes.


  2. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top as
    well as defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
