The FBI tracks a young Vietnam War protester
Wellstone formed his political opinions while active in the civil rights and anti-war movements of the 1960s, and wrote a doctoral dissertation on “Black Militants in the Ghetto: Why They Believe in Violence.”
Threats against the senator
Wellstone traveled to Washington, D.C. in January 1991 on the green school bus that became famous in his underdog fight against incumbent Republican Sen. Rudy Boschwitz.

When a plane carrying Wellstone, his wife, daughter, and three staffers crashed near Eveleth, Minn. on October 25, 2002, the FBI was among the first agencies to respond.
