What links Obama, Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground?
Are they all controlled by the security services?
The Weather Underground bombed government buildings.
But none of the Weathermen was prosecuted for bombing government buildings.
Weather Underground, or Weathermen, was formed after the Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) fragmented in the late 1960s.
The 'anti-war' Weather Underground was active in the USA during the 1960s and 1970s.
In 1971, The Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI broke into an FBI office in Pennsylvania  and found files showing FBI links to the Weathermen (Weather Underground). (Weatherman organization - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
The files were a part of the FBI program called COINTELPRO.
In 1973, the FBI set up the Special Target Information Development program, by which double-agents worked within the Weather Underground.
The Weathermen successfully made the anti-war movement less popular.
It is possible that key people within the Weathermen were working for the security services and that their objective was to discredit those who opposed the Vietnam War.
The job of the double-agents would be:
(1) to get the Weathermen involved in violence, so that they would lose the support of the public.
(2) to weaken and divide the Weathermen by creating competing factions.
Bill Ayers "made decisive contributions to the Weatherman orientation toward militancy".
"During that time his infatuation with street fighting grew and he developed a language of confrontational militancy that became more and more pronounced over the year ", disaffected former Weatherman member Cathy Wilkerson wrote in 2001.
In 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb which broke almost 100 windows.
Ayers took part in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, the United States Capitol building in 1971, and The Pentagon in 1972.
Ayers is currently a Distinguished Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Education.
Ayers served on two nonprofit boards with Barack Obama.
