The FBI File on Steve Jobs

Late last year, Michael Morisy contacted the the FBI, with a request under the Freedom of Information Act to attain the FBI files on Steve Jobs, former CEO of Apple. His full correspondence appears here.

“Several individuals questioned Mr. Jobs’ honesty stating that Mr. Jobs will twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his goals,” according to the report released today by the FBI.

The FBI interviewed Jobs and people who knew him as part of a background check for a possible appointment by former President George H. W. Bush. Interviews were conducted with unnamed associates of Jobs to judge his character, drug use and potential prejudices, according to the file. Near the end, there is a mention of a bomb threat.

The FBI report on Steve Jobs is decades old, and a large portion of the material is redacted, but it still makes for an interesting look-through. The full file is here.
