J. Edgar Hoover


John Edgar Hoover was the director of the FBI from 1924 until 1972. In the 1950s, the FBI's overseas activities were curtailed by the newly formed CIA. J. Edgar Hoover consequently focused on the domestic anti-communist "Red Hunt" movement, placing severe restrictions on civil rights in the process.

During the Shadow Moses Incident, Naomi Hunter, a member of FOXHOUND's rear support team, lied about her background. She claimed her grandfather was a Japanese man who served as an adviser to Hoover in the 1950s, helping the FBI infiltrate Mafia operations. However, there was no record of any Asian-American agents serving in the FBI in the 1950s, and the undercover Mafia investigation had not yet begun at that time.
