I am in fact aware.  Kurashige also acknowledges Swearingen's
contributions in exonerating Geronimo Pratt.  What is at question here
is the reliability of the speculative conclusion Swearingen reaches
(and which Rosenthal relies upon for Aoki's post-1967 activity) that
Aoki's ancestry was somehow a "perfect cover" for infiltration of the
Panthers.  Swearingen is to be lauded for the HARD EVIDENCE he has
provided as an ex-FBI agent.  But his analytical capacities seem to be
less reliable and tainted by conspiracism.

He wrote a book on FBI misdeeds for South End Press, a radical publisher, with an introduction by Ward Churchill whose book on Cointelpro is a classic. He also testified against the FBI for the SWP side in our $35 million suit.
