Summary Box: FBI file says Jobs up for govt post

THE FINDINGS: FBI background interviews of some people who knew Apple co-founder Steve Jobs reveal a man driven by power and alienating some of the people who worked with him.

CIRCUMSTANCES: The FBI documents were released Thursday and contained information on 1991 interviews that were part of a background check for an appointment to the President’s Export Council.

GOOD AND BAD: Many of those who knew Jobs praised him, speaking highly of Jobs’ character and integrity and asserting that he always conducted his business dealings in a reputable manner. Yet some told FBI agents that he was sometimes deceptive.
