FBI Tracked David Halberstam For More Than Two Decades

E-mail Print PDF

The FBI tracked the late Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author David Halberstam for more than two decades, newly released documents show.

 The FBI monitored Halberstam's reporting, and at times his personal life, from at least the mid-1960s until at least the late '80s, the documents show. The agency released only 62 pages of a 98-page dossier on the writer, citing security, privacy and other reasons. Halberstam won a Pulitzer in 1964 for his coverage of the Vietnam War while working as a reporter for The New York Times.
