FBI file on Steve Jobs released


The U.S. government has released the late Steve Jobs’s FBI file Thursday, including details of a background check done for a presidential appointment in 1991, reports “Wired” (

The background check was for an appointment to the president’s Export Council, under former President George H. W. Bush. Though Jobs’ personal integrity was questioned (use of LSD in his younger days, distorting the truth, doing anything to achieve his goals), the interviewees all said there was no reason Jobs should not be given the presidential appointment to the export council, which he subsequently received.

The 191-page FBI file was released following a Freedom of Information Act request by “Wired” and other media outlets. If you’d like to read it go to .
