Methods
According to Attorney Brian Glick in his book War at Home, the FBI used four main methods during COINTELPRO:

1. Infiltration: Agents and informers did not merely spy on political activists. Their main purpose was to discredit and disrupt. Their very presence served to undermine trust and scare off potential supporters. The FBI and police exploited this fear to smear genuine activists as agents.

2. Psychological Warfare From the Outside: The FBI and police used myriad other "dirty tricks" to undermine progressive movements. They planted false media stories and published bogus leaflets and other publications in the name of targeted groups. They forged correspondence, sent anonymous letters, and made anonymous telephone calls. They spread misinformation about meetings and events, set up pseudo movement groups run by government agents, and manipulated or strong-armed parents, employers, landlords, school officials and others to cause trouble for activists.

3. Harassment Through the Legal System: The FBI and police abused the legal system to harass dissidents and make them appear to be criminals. Officers of the law gave perjured testimony and presented fabricated evidence as a pretext for false arrests and wrongful imprisonment. They discriminatorily enforced tax laws and other government regulations and used conspicuous surveillance, "investigative" interviews, and grand jury subpoenas in an effort to intimidate activists and silence their supporters.

4. Extralegal Force and Violence: The FBI and police threatened, instigated, and themselves conducted break-ins, vandalism, assaults, and beatings. The object was to frighten dissidents and disrupt their movements. In the case of radical Black and Puerto Rican activists (and later Native Americans), these attacksóincluding political assassinationsówere so extensive, vicious, and calculated that they can accurately be termed a form of official "terrorism."
The FBI also conducted "black bag jobs",[4] which were warrantless surreptitious entries, against the targeted groups and their members.

Citation? Source? Evidence to support that statement?

You may be right, but am I to simply take your word for it? If you think you know this, show us why you think you know it; let us decide for ourselves whether what you say is true.

COINTELPRO was used in the 1950's to subvert the civil rights movement, there are claims that the fbi director j edgar hoover sent dr king a threatning letter claiming that he should commit sucide to save himself the grief of his affairs with other women, one week later he was assassinated, malcom x another, and medger evers,
there are allegations that the fbi were giving the kkk information and who to target out of the groups.

COINTELPRO was used in the 1960's to subvert peaceful protesters and spy on political rivals
Watergate anyone,
there were people in the FBI that were brought up on charges but they were all pardoned by gerald ford
how convenient

well here is some good archives if you want to read them

Okay, that's some great info about the '50's and '60's. Where's your support for the claim that it's alive and well today?

One citation? Just one????

I've had to do that before. He makes a comment, I reply with an argument, he quotes himself without facing my argument, so I quote my argument. Silly Internets.
