FBI: Steve Jobs Was a 'Deceptive Individual'

February 09, 2012  | 

The FBI today released its file on the late Apple founder Steve Jobs which includes comments from former friends and associates, including one source who describes him as "a deceptive individual who is not completely forthright and honest."

The FBI was doing a background investigation of Jobs in 1991 when President George H. W. Bush was considering his possible appointment to the U.S. Export Council. In the end, the appointment was never made. Dozens of associates of Jobs were interviewed during the investigation.

"Several individuals questioned Mr. Jobs's honesty stating that Mr. Jobs will twist the truth and distort reality in order to achieve his goals," according to the FBI file.

The Wall Street Journal obtained the file under a Freedom of Information Act request. The USA Today report includes a link the the entire file.
