      I don’t think this is an example of that. I mean, this is a guy who worked on the Manhattan Project. I’d say an intense level of scrutiny is reasonable, and apparently it didn’t interfere with him getting stuff done or having a grand old time. Hardly “violent opposition.”

    There’s an interesting denunciation starting on page 110 by someone (name redacted) who appears to have thought Feynman was a brilliantly manipulative Communist agent. This person knew Feynman and had been contacted first by the FBI. I wonder how seriously they took it.
