WASHINGTON — Al Qaeda they were not.

But declassified FBI files show agents kept tabs on the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix and Col Sanders of KFC fame, according to the London publication, The Sun.

The paper reports that the FBI files indicate the agency’s concern that the Beatles in the 1960s might undermine America. John Lennon was described as a “radically orientated” druggie, and pages talk in detail about him posing nude with wife Yoko Ono, the Sun reported.

The documents show the agency got involved in helping local police investigate child molestation allegations against pop star Michael Jackson.

Documents detailed Jim Hendrix’s marijuana conviction and noted that he was a contributor to a hippy magazine called The Chicago Kaleidoscope, the Sun reported.

And yes, a file was opened on the king of chicken himself,Colonel Sanders after he asked director J. Edgar Hoover for his autograph.

Could the FBI have been concerned that the colonel might try to sell his secret “finger lickin’ good” recipe to the Russians?

The paper reported that the FBI had a 679-page file, but only about half will be released.

LAS VEGAS –Federal agents searched a pharmacy in a Las Vegas strip mall Tuesday morning as part of the investigation into the death of entertainer Michael Jackson.

Although Drug Enforcement Administration agents at the scene wouldn’t confirm that the raid was related to the pop star’s death, a law enforcement source said Jackson’s personal doctor had obtained a potent anesthetic from Applied Pharmacy Services.

Authorities believe Dr. Conrad Murray gave Jackson the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid.

DEA agents, who said they were working with the Los Angeles Police Department and the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, arrived at the pharmacy at 6370 W. Flamingo Road, near Jones Boulevard, about 9:20 a.m. to begin their search.

HOUSTON — A lawyer for Michael Jackson’s doctor says police who searched the physician’s north Houston clinic were searching for evidence of manslaughter.

Dr. Conrad Murray had been interviewed by police as a witness to the pop star’s death, but has not been considered a suspect.

Los Angeles police and agents with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration searched the Armstrong Medical Clinic on Wednesday for about 2 1/2 hours. Authorities said they were searching for documents.

“The search warrant authorized law enforcement to search for and seize items, including documents, they believed constituted evidence of the offense of manslaughter,” Ed Chernoff, Murray’s attorney, said in a statement posted on his law firm’s Web site.
