Steve Jobs FBI File Notes Drug Use; Background Check for Appointment By Bush

BLOOMBERG.COM - The Federal Bureau of Investigation released a decades-old file it kept on Steve Jobs, the deceased Apple Inc (APPLE). co-founder, after a background check and bomb threat against the executive.

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

The FBI interviewed Jobs and people who knew him as part of a background check for a possible appointment by former President George H. W. Bush. Interviews were conducted with unnamed associates of Jobs to judge his character, drug use and potential prejudices, according to the file.

Several people commented "concerning past drug use on the part of Mr. Jobs," according to the file.

FBI records can be made public after a person's death and were released by the law-enforcement agency following a Freedom of Information Act Request. Jobs died in October after a long battle with a rare form of cancer. Apple, the maker of the iPhone, iPad, iPod and Mac, is now the world's most valuable company.

Representatives of Cupertino, California-based Apple and the FBI in Washington didn't immediately respond to requests for comment.
