 Using tens of thousands of pages of unreleased FBI files, investigative journalist Seth Rosenfeld wrote a book, “Subversives,” about the agency’s handling of the Berkeley student movement in the 1960s, the Daily Beast reports.

The book reveals that top FBI officials went to great lengths to destroy the movement because they believed it posed a serious threat to America.

Rosenfeld also paints an unflattering portrait of Ronald Reagan, who was an FBI investigator and informant.

The FBI records took three decades and four lawsuits to obtain, the Daily Beast reported.

There were also more frightening incidents — a man who hopped the White House gate with a .38-caliber revolver and got within 50 feet of the residence. Another man crashed a plane into the White House.

But until Tareq and Michaele Salahi attended a state dinner uninvited last week, even posing for pictures, maybe none of the intruders displayed quite the aplomb that Robert Latta did on Jan. 20, 1985.

Latta, a 45-year-old water meter reader from Denver, sneaked into the East Entrance of the White House with the Marine Band about two hours before President Reagan was sworn in for his second term.
