A new release of government documents shows that the FBI took very seriously the Church of Scientology's complaints about the Anonymous movement when it burst on the scene in January 2008, and the law enforcement agency spent months trying to find, in particular, the person who sent more than 20 letters to Southern California Scientology churches that contained a white powder.

We have two FBI files for you to pore through today, at 268 and 180 pages they're additional releases that we're getting thanks to journalist Emma Best, who is suing the FBI over numerous document requests she has made.

(The rise of Anonymous has been documented heavily, and we recommend McGill University professor Gabriella Coleman's 2014 book Hacker, Hoaxer, Whistleblower, Spy: The Many Faces of Anonymous as the most readable version of it.)
