I'm Keith Forsyth, I broke into the FBI in 1971, and helped uncover COINTELPRO and take down Hoover. Ask me anything.
In 1971, I was part of a group of activists called the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI who broke into a small FBI field office in Media, PA. I trained myself as a locksmith and used tools I made to pick the lock to the office door.
A new film telling our story, 1971, will premiere on Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival. You can find out more at 1971film.com (currently down due to HostGator server outage!)

More background: We took every document in the office, and shared the evidence we found of illegal FBI activity with the American public. The documents we found exposed COINTELPRO for the first time, a massive program of domestic surveillance intended to intimidate dissenters and infringe on our right to free speech.
I'm happy to answer any questions you have. Ask me anything.
Edit: I'm going to have to sign off now--thanks for the questions, everyone. Make sure to check out the film, 1971, at the Tribeca Film Festival this week and next week. It will also be at other festivals this year, and on PBS towards the winter.
