Documents on FBI’s surveillance of Kerry stolen

Historian: ‘Odds are in favor’ of political motive in theft

Documents detailing government surveillance of John Kerry in the early 1970s have been stolen from the home of a historian in a suburb of San Francisco, California.

Gerald Nicosia, who spent more than a decade collecting the information, told CNN in a telephone interview that three of 14 boxes of documents plus a number of loose folders — hundreds of pages — were stolen Thursday afternoon.

“It was a very clean burglary. They didn’t break any glass. They didn’t take anything like cameras sitting by. It was a very professional job,” Nicosia said.
