Torture, America, and Accountability

Just over a year ago, the ACLU relaunched its national blog with a symposium called "Torture and America." We invited a select group of guest bloggers to weigh in. This year, we're marking the one-year anniversary of the Blog of Rights by revisiting the issue of torture with a new forum, which we're expanding to include not just bloggers, but experts in the field: psychologists who've worked with torture victims, former military personnel, authors, attorneys who represent former and current Guantanamo detainees, and others. We'll discuss the origins of the torture program, who's responsible for these crimes, and most of all, the need for accountability.

To kick off this month-long forum, we have an exclusive podcast (MP3) :'s Glenn Greenwald, one of our original torture symposium contributors, interviews Philippe Sands, author of Torture Team: Rumsfeld's Memo and the Betrayal of American Values (shameless plug: it's newly available in paperback), and ACLU attorney Amrit Singh, co-counsel in the ACLU's long-standing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit. Thanks to that lawsuit, the public saw for the first time the infamous legal memos that authorized the use of torture on detainees in U.S. custody overseas.

We're also launching our Accountability for Torture feature, a hub for everything you need to know about the issue, including a video about accountability, an infographic of the Bush administration players who authorized torture, an improved search function that allows the public to search thousands of documents we received through our FOIA request, and our prescription for accountability.

You can take action now: click here to browse some select documents from our FOIA request, and send one to the DOJ. By sending them evidence of torture, you'll send a powerful message that you won't tolerate torture in your name.

Remind the Obama administration that in America, no one is above the law and criminals must be held accountable.

What does the A in ACLU stand for? What does the ACLU have to do with non-american enemy combatants? I think Amnesty International or the Red Cross would be a more suitable platform.


I have just heard about a person released from Guantanamo to the French say that he was tortured by the Obama Administration. Then I hear on nightly news that only 3 people were tortured. I am beginning to think that I can not believe any one including the ACLU.


Sincerely. Thanks for this.

Mind if I get wordy? I've been circulating this essay in Burlington, Vermont during the course of the Jazz Fest - I've got about 100 copies left. They go today.

I realize it's a lot of information for a blog comment, but I do believe it is, umm, on topic, though that may not be immediately obvious.


Manifesto: American Mad

Are you Master of your own Domain?

Strange question, isn’t it. “What is up with that?” you may be tempted to ask, and most rightly so. There is, I think, only one correct answer, out of the thousands and thousands of possible responses, and that is: Are you insane? To understand why this is the most appropriate response, you must understand what is really being asked, and that requires a complete understanding of the original question.

The question itself is not new. It is, I think, one that is really very old, one that has been gussied up with a new framework for a new generation, a new culture, and a new millennium. By framework I mean language. Let me rephrase the question.

Do you have Free Will? The meaning of this question is I think much more apparent. The concept of having is easily understood by the average person taught to speak the English language. Either you have - or you possess - something or you do not. In this case, the question of having or not having centers around something called free will. I could as easily rephrase the question “Do you have Free Will?” by asking “Do you possess Free Will?” These questions are nearly identical, and yet there is a very subtle, almost unnoticed difference. To have is no different in meaning from to possess. The difference between these two forms is in association. When it is said: You can’t take it with you, we do not understand the meaning to be: you can’t take your haves with you. What we understand is, you cannot take your possessions.

We also understand a possession may be stolen. We do not immediately associate the possibility of theft every time the use of the word possess appears, simply because our possessions are not under constant threat of theft. It is simply a possibility, one we silently acknowledge and guard against, while not dwelling too deeply in a morass of paranoia over it.

Anything we possess is a thing we have. This includes hopes, dreams, aspirations, ideas, ideals, convictions; and as possessions they are much less tangible than objects which may come with price tag affixed. Yet it remains true, anything we have may be stolen. There is a gap between having and possessing a thing like free will. An attentive reader will have already made the leap that has been so diabolically suggested: a concept like that of free will, however tangible it may or may not be, may be subject to theft.

So lets leap.

Any nation dedicated to the principle that all men are created equal cannot long endure the suggested thievery of intellectual possession.

The question: Are you Master of Your Own Domain is a subtle, insidious attempt to disguise intent by rephrasing the question Do you have Free Will? By rephrasing the question it removes any and all contexts in which the original question, Do you have Free Will, has been posed. These contexts help form the foundation of what we believe, informing our opinion regarding the nature of free will.

If we have heard questions regarding free will within a religious context, then issues of faith and duty to God become the context informing our opinion. If we have heard the question of free will arise as part of a discussion on the thinking of those men who produced the Constitution of the United States, then a sense of patriotic duty may inform our belief about the nature of free will. Are You Master Of Your Own Domain has none of these connotations. This question arrives without foundation, without support, of previous learning and experience. It inspires no sense of duty to either God or country.

Those who over time have evolved such questions do not care for answers to the questions they have posed. They do not care, for answers are not their intent. They have come only to steal. They call it fishing.

A Small Reality Check

Any nation dedicated to the principle that all men are created equal cannot long endure the suggested thievery of intellectual possession.

Does that statement strike you as threatening? It isn’t exactly the kind of language you expect from someone foaming at the mouth, is it. To be clear, most of the words in the above sentence come from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, with some minor adjustments.

Consider the opening of that address:

Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth upon this continent a new nation: conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war.

Anyone acquainted with this address would quickly spot the similarity; and yet the implied threat still isn’t clear. It cannot be clear, until a comprehensive understanding is reached regarding the phrase: thievery of intellectual possession. Without it, no serious threat can be conveyed. I have created a signal, one that suggests the specter of civil war; a signal that is focused on a specific set of people - people who are thieves, thieves of something very special, something I have called intellectual possession. When I say Intellectual Possession, what I mean is the ownership of those things that make up personality, and inform belief. The theft of these fundamental components of human experience has, for some, been a theft of life itself.

In essence, what we have then, is a threat. It is a threat requiring two keys to be deciphered. The first key is the context, signaled by the quote: all men are created equal, signaling on a subliminal level the conflict between slavery and freedom and the Civil War that conflict produced. The second key is contained in the phrase Intellectual Possession, which it seems has no relevant context until one is provided. The pair of words combined are similar to this pair of words: intellectual property; something we all understand as being external, some thing that is owned, a product of the mind that may be passed hand to hand, bought and sold. If we associate the phrase Intellectual Possession with intellectual property we miss the intent of the message. This is not a design flaw. This technique is a slight of hand, using a contrived phrase to misdirect the general audience from the intended message.

Once the threat has been deciphered, it still has no context that is clear, immediate, and pressing; and so to us it still has no meaning. We must be able to examine the breadth and depth of the crime, the theft signaled by speech that is unfamiliar, by that phrase thievery of Intellectual Possession. If we cannot examine the crime itself, and if the language in which it is conveyed is unfamiliar - if it has no immediate, bloody association - then to us it is as if no threat had been made. It would seem that if the statement is a threat, it is heard only by those who would steal whatever it is that has been identified as intellectual possession.

This is a linguistic construct - but you can call it prose. Neuro-linguistics is the study of how language affects biology; within a behavioral context it examines behavioral change. Neural-linguistic-reprogramming is the creation of communication constructs incorporating language, and symbolic forms of communication - like tee shirts, bumper stickers, and other mediums which display pithy sayings or logos - to induce behavioral change.

Unless someone trained in the field would like to contradict me? Is there a Doctor in the house? I will be happy to note any objections - as a footnote.

Lets be absolutely clear about what has taken place. This linguistic construct is a message, a signal. Within this signal a threat has been posed, yet it is one that cannot truly be understood without a solid background in modern behavioral theory and practice. Since the average American cannot yet grasp this signal, cannot grasp the threat, it becomes difficult to enable their active participation in this discussion. In my view, this seems completely un-American.

It is with some small regret that I make the following statement. Please accept my most sincere apologies, and as you do, pay close attention.

With perhaps one hundred volunteers and a small amount of demographic research looking for specific psychological profiles within a given community, we can engineer the following:

We can identify the stimulus that is the most provocative to a given sexual predator, and we can identify biorhythmic cycles within the sexual predator to determine when and under what conditions they are most likely to act out.

We can examine couples whose dysfunctional behavior results in abuse to identify sources of friction between them, we can quantify that stimulus most likely to induce those psychological states, where and when that abuse is most likely to occur.

We can use the sum of this information to induce:
sexual predation;
domestic abuse resulting in murder;
and these things can, with the right kind of analysis, be arranged to occur on cue.

Sounds fantastic, doesn’t it. We can arrange grotesque instances of sexual assault or domestic violence so obscene that we naturally tend to revolt against the very notion, the very possibility, that it might be deliberately induced - much less induced on cue. Many will be tempted to doubt what I insist here is true. It is so reprehensible our doubt presents itself as a comfort, a refuge, against what can only be considered as a form of insanity.

I therefore submit for your consideration evidence contained in Psychological Record 18 from 1968, where one Lloyd Homme was quoted as saying:

We have the capacity to install any behavior we want.

This is my sole intent: REVOLT.

The prospect of revolution doesn’t really sound too threatening at this time does it. I assume the truth of that statement is self evident. If the issue is not clear, if it is not personal, than the prospect of revolution is no more than a distant, flickering hope; a small and tender beacon in the faint distance, showing the way forward while our feet remain smothered in darkness. We need more light.

An examination of the process of behavioral reprogramming must take place.

The Process

It is relatively easy to put together a crude replica of the process. It is so easy anyone can do it. It is so easy in fact, that I hesitate to lay it all out in plain English, simply because it may so readily be copied and implemented with consequences beyond my control. Yet it is a process that is already in such wide use, and still remains unacknowledged, that it seems nothing short of a blunt and critical assessment will do. It is as if, in this nation, we were a pair of lovers who will not speak of love, of desire, or of commitment; instead we dwell in a dysfunctional mode of communication, the mode of silence; and in so doing we cannot meet our own needs, let alone the needs of our partner, or our union. In this case, our union is our Republic. It is ‘our Republic, for which it stands.’

To be blunt then. The process is relatively simple. If someone shouts your name as you are walking down the street you naturally turn to look. When you see the shout was intended for someone else, you think nothing of it, and go on your way.

If that happens ten times in a short afternoon, you are going to wonder: what’s up with that? You will note the oddity of it, and you may even pay a bit more attention to your environment in general. If nothing else noteworthy takes place, the event will quickly fade in your subconscious. Here is where a little bit of research may prove useful. A hook is needed, a second cue that signals identity. This second cue will instill a sense that something underhanded is at work. This becomes the first demonstration that some violation of privacy has taken place. Once that hook is identified, it must be presented in a way that connects it to the previous shouts. A pair of strangers passing within ear shot need not utter your name, not if your name has already been signaled, and your attention has been captured. All they need do is verbally express the second piece of personally identifying information.

Now for the twist. No lasting behavioral change will take place without it.

How do you feel about punk rockers? Dressed in black, the color of mourning. Spiky hair, you know the type. What if one of them actually has your name? What if two of them appear, one of them has your name, and the other says that name, and follows up with: “You messed up. Now you’re gonna die.” Attention getting? I’ll bet you would watch them walk away for a bit. So how about someone approaching from the rear - the opposite direction of your occupied attention - with a cup of very hot coffee, a spill, one that is hot, it burns, and an insistent “hey watch it! That’s hot!” as if the entire episode of the spilled coffee which you now wear is your fault. Now that the environment has your complete attention, someone may be presented who no longer says your name. All they have to do is snigger, and say “hot, hot, hot” as they pass by.

It won’t even matter if they are really sniggering over some beautiful young lady who passes or not. That they could be won’t even enter your head.

Such a process, once begun, does have the risk that some combination of the natural environment and the subject’s own expectations may spin the process completely out of control.

To some, what I have described so far may sound like nothing more than a practical joke. It is not. This is a process that has the capacity to kill. Those of us who are well acquainted with this fact must stand together and demand that this process end.

The experts in this technology, or some of them, present it as both a science, and a form of art. In their quest for elegance they often seem completely indifferent to consequence.

Consider for a moment, stalkers. We all know how notoriously difficult it can be for law enforcement to respond to a stalker in a way that ensures the victim’s safety. Already what I have presented is clearly a form of stalking, one that takes it to a new level entirely. But what if, what if it is accidents that come stalking? Accidents, and the paramedics, firefighters and police officers that attend to them with loud and blaring sirens, and flashing colored lights. If the accidents are faked then the worst we may say is that it represents a significant drain on the municipal budget, as well as presenting an inherent risk to the pubic and the first responders committed to answer the call. And if the accidents are real? Products of engineering designed with the intent to intimidate? Designed to assure the victim of this process of stalking that they must comply. Comply or the accidents continue. Comply, or they could be next. Shh, they say, shh.

Research has shown that an epileptic seizure may be induced using a bright flash of light. In Japan several years ago over 700 school children were sent to the hospital after watching a new piece of Japanese animation shown on tv. You might be tempted to suppose that epileptics are particularly vulnerable as tools within the process. Yet as epileptics their utility is somewhat limited. Within the process as I have described, there is nothing like the forecast of a plane crash or a large fireball on the interstate. With just a few short days of torment of this nature, any given subject may be driven to the point of suicide.

Or locked in a mental institution, babbling incoherently.

Or in prison, after acting out violently against a society it seems, that is bent on the destruction of the very principles on which it was founded.

I am well aware of how fantastic this all sounds. Within American society grand notions of conspiracy are widely associated with madness. When someone suddenly stands up in our midst screaming ‘they are out to get me’ we may wonder, but without evidence of conspiracy the witness is discounted. The more they rant, the easier it is for us to discount them, and sadly, this is true even among us who have seen the process.

A test may be in order. I am writing about the tools of behavioral conditioning. I am writing about neural-linguistic-reprogramming. It is not a term I have made up, it is one that was used in my presence over ten years ago. If it is a term in usage it should appear either in the encyclopedia or dictionary. Maybe Google will provide some insight.

If that fails, then try this. Take this linguistic construct to a clinician in the field of mental health. Take it to several of them. If what I have written is valid, then there will be two things to observe. The first is the lack of complete candor on the subject. The second is the appearance of an underlying sense of apprehension, or even fear. If your subject has been behaviorally conditioned to avoid responses to the question of neural-linguistic-reprogramming, then both fear and denial when confronted with the topic should be most apparent.

Silence on this issue by the community of mental health professionals seems in my view to be almost completely universal. Exposure of this process and the evident silence around it brings into question the credibility of the entire industry. When we label an individual as insane we insist their experience of reality is invalid, that it does not apply; we strip them of credibility and subject them to a degree of ostracism from society. This is power.

If we label someone as insane we invalidate their real life experience. If their experience of reality is valid, if it is real and can be reproduced, then denial of their experience becomes denial of reality. To expand such a process throughout our society must

- 10 -inevitably lead to a complete loss of our collective sense of identity, values, and beliefs about the world around us. Once these things are gone there may be little left but fear.

“I will not live under that yoke.”

And so I say, REVOLT. If the process is to be effective, it requires proof; proof of death, or of immediate, physical harm. Without it such practice will be revealed as nothing more than a scam, a charade, a practical joke, and silence can not be ensured. No one of us has any more right to life or to liberty than any such proof ever given, and so I say we must revolt. And if we will stifle free speech that has no other agenda but truth and the preservation of civil liberty, than this nation is no longer worthy of patriotic allegiance, and I would rather it burn to the ground by our own hands, than at the hands of others.

We must revolt.

Thank you for your efforts. We need to hear the "whole truth."

A federal "multi-agency coordinated action" program appears to provide funding, organizational structure and, the evidence indicates, direction, for what amounts to an "American Gestapo"...

... an extrajudicial targeting and punishment "matrix" that has drafted hundreds of thousands of citizen volunteer vigilantes to stalk, harass, terrorize and yes, TORTURE, many many thousands of unjustly "targeted" American citizens and their families...

...using covertly implanted GPS tracking devices and classified microwave radiation "directed energy weapons" -- which have been proliferated to local law enforcement nationwide by government agencies that include the Department of Justice.

This "multi-agency coordinated action" appears to be overseen by secretive security forces close to the seat of executive power (but apparently under the radar of POTUS and his closest aides).

My task here is to issue a WAKE-UP CALL to POTUS, VPOTUS, AG Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano, David Axelrod and Rahm Emanuel -- and to apparently naive, disbelieving (or perhaps co-opted?) civil liberties organizations such as ACLU.

If their aides are reading this, please forward the following link to their immediate attention:

OR (if link is corrupted / disabled):

A NOTE TO SEC. NAPOLITANO: My postings to Washington Post's political blogs, as well as other internet sites, appear to be subject to near- real-time prior restraint and outright censorship that I believe emanates from the Homeland Security- supervised "fusion center" based in Newtown, Bucks County PA.

Secretary Napolitano, I believe your charges are allowing the imposition of unconstitutional prior restraint and censorship on political speech and telecommunications in America. Please do something about this. Thank you.


Trying to get our military, daughter, fathers,sons, friends and wife killed is not the AMERICAN way. Everytime I hear or see the word aclu I think of hateful people. Just a reminder to the congress, house, and the president you work for the people NOT aclu and remember these words "ELECTION", "WE THE PEOPLE" and "SAFETY OF OUR LOVE ONE"

Dear: Sir/Madam

“God Send me for Peace, but the United State Government Microchip Implants me since 1982 and decided to kill me.” Please help me to stop

My name is Negist Berihun I came to the United State of America in 1982. For twenty seven years the U.S. Government secretly enter wherever I live on my sleep they put Microchip implants in my head and body they put Ghost and UFO in my house without my knowledge, they research (a Ghost Child or children) for their spying and space. Will you help me to find it? I have no ward to say to the United State Government. The only American’s the United State constitution, the U.S employment law, workers compensation law, Human Rights, and other laws protects only White, Black, Spanish, and Indian American. And the rest of us we got U.S citizenships paper. We just came for all kind of research and inventory use. Lowes Company Inc lied and accused employers stealing merchandise put employees to jail and collect money. When I know all these the government wants me dead. When I talk to American about these they said “are you crazy, When was the last time you saw a doctor, are you in mental institution, we can take you to mental institution.” Do International Rescue Committee or Catholics Charity tell us all these when they bring us to United State? The Military (Polices) and Spies put anesthesia then Water boarding, poison on my food, poison, burn me by Taser and Laser light, all kind chemicals and electronics devices, inferred light, inject me on my sleep, Zap me in a zap gun all kind people enter my house and my car a thousand people follow me a day, I am watch 24/7. My Ex-neighbor, Ms. Miller the minute I out my house she in. When I was extremely sick they leave me a flyer hepatitis B in my book bag. They want me to move out of state of Georgia and now they want me to move out of the USA. I am citizen of the US on paper I have nowhere to go I was refuge. I wrote and call Senator John Linder, and congressman John Lews. They told me the congress ethics committee will not allow us to involve” what they mean to me is you are not American. Congressmen and women Jim Mcgovernn, Lynn Woolsey, Keith Ellison, Donna Edwards wrote and called they told me thank you for the information.
They would not allow me to hire a lawyer, finally believing the constitutions I thought I sued my ex-employer and Gwinnett County Polices without the summon delver United States district Judge Orinda D. Evans dismisses it. It is legal frivolous and irrational. I request the court to finger print my house and car and stuff, also poison test the judge denied. Judges and their offices know Polices Georgia and Military put Ghost and UFO in my house, I am Microchip implanted secretly, and polices have problem that they cannot find someone to accused with and testify against me and Judges told polices to accuse my sister and arrest both of us about Lowe’s Inc. How Lowe’s inc. is protected by court.
The court did not stop them. They can’t stop secretly enter my house, then I lock by locker myself inside a bedroom and sleep, still they enter my bedroom; Then I tie the window and door by rope, people did not enter but the electronics devices did. Then I came to the state of Texas and I went to SPY store. Polices have SPY key that open doors and windows and Gwinnett County Polices use spy key I saw them inside my house many times; I hide myself under the table. Some places like restaurants or office buildings I cannot use restroom without permission from the United State Polices. What happen to the democracy and Human rights? In the night, on the road most of the time polices, spies and I, and they chase me by all kind devices internally and through things on me, the court and polices are said “you have no witness” and will you help me stop these torture and form of Slavery to over. On August 2007, Gwinnett county polices, Georgia left me a letter it said”1-800-825-1500Ask SIU Special Investigation Unite on the log of the letter State Farm Insurance and dresses” I went State Farm insurance to my agent office. I told him the house has all kind of holes and damages, Gwinnett county polices, Lowe’s company, have my house and my car keys also they took my cars over and over again, he side, “I can do nothing about it you have to caught CIA on the act,” State Farm know all the activity in my house and my cars CIA do but even they don’t let me now, I said I caught CIA on the act how I do that, I show to the man what they doing my car, Soon CIA e-mails me for job opening many times.
At the end of 1981 from overdose medication I was dead, Then God send me to land for peace, I did explain these the first time to U.S. government that Gwinnett County police Georgia want to find out by their research so I told them. I believe African is microchip implants when we get in the U.S. When I exam my thoughts they are control by polices; I do what they told me to do, I have no power on my brain, On 2007 after Lowe’s company inc. fire me and cannot arrest me one day when I was driving a voice told me “GO STRAIGHT CROSS THE FOUR LANE BUSY ROAD” I drove about one fourth the first lane I stop and backup but there is no body. Again when I drove a ball swing at my face and at the same time an object through on my brake, I stop immediately and exit the road but nothing in my car. When I drove August 2007 the car shake I took it my house and park it I said they change the brake. For example one Ethiopian, he sleep with his child and make her pregnant, and another one tab his wife by knife they are in jail in Georgia. Who commit these crimes? I love the U.S but not all these. The Polices would not allow me to communicate with anybody. I cannot receive mail or email, only I can fax, if I found a fax number and fax.
I wrote many letters too many organizations and The White House. I called The White House on 04-02-2009, a man answer, he said “I read your complain so what.” I believed it is the police. At the same day I called Governor of Texas, they told me to call the chief of Police. When I make phone calls they disconnect me or they answer the phone or they listen, and San Antonio polices know where I am. Microchip implants is a very powerful thing and I believed this is a new powerful form of Slaver. FOR ALL MISERY LOWE’S INC. Chairman and CEO Robert Niblock IS RESPONCIBLE I KNOW I AM GOING TO BE KILLED ON MY DEATH, weather I die by poison, accident, by gun Chairman and CEO Rober Niblock, Gwinnett County polices Georgia and San Antonio polices are responsible and also they will know who killed me. They told restaurants to put poison on my food; McDonald did. The reason of death for Chairman and CEO Robert Niblodk’s, Lowe’s Inc inventory that he made deal with Gwinnett County polices. Lowe’s LIE claim thousands and thousands dollars by my name that customers pay wrong check or wrong credit card, but these are Lowe’s fake checks, fake credit cards and fake customers, one item sold four times and they want put me jail to cover their claim and because I know these. But they can’t find someone to accused with and testify against me I have no relationships anybody the last twenty seven years. Gwinnett county polices know that Lowe’s Inc lie accused employees stealing and call polices and put them in jail and collect money. Lowe’s inc. hires emigrants when they arrive U.S.A, I know Lowe’s claim thousands and thousands dollar by their name and prepared them to jail.
Lowe’s inc. Fire the first manager Mr. Douglas Aldridge, then hire Mr. Julian, Lowe’s inc. store manager, he send employee to my house and take files and other. Then on 2006 and 2007 Lowe’s inc. main office fires the employee that went my house, fired Mr. Julian, fired the regional human resource manager, (he plans employee to hit or kill me), pressure to quit the regional manager, hire back the Mr. Aldridge and they make a deal with Gwinnett County polices about me.
After I came the United State of American I decrease hearing in 1982. In 1993 I went school at West Georgia College in the state of Georgia. One night someone enters my room secretly touches my head. From that day on some part of my body jerks, I got extremely cold and soon I will be extremely hot all the time. Soon I change school but my memory deteriorated and I cannot read for second level English finally I drop out of college, I saw many doctors, then they told me it is sinus infection and PMS I know it is not. When I got weird direction I prayed about it and I did not know where it comes. For example, one time before I employed at Lowe’s inc. when I was watching TV I saw a police arrested a woman on TV then a man said to me law voice” you will be like her one day” I prayed and I asked what is it, I did not understood where the voice came from. I experience everything on the letter and more and I was preparing to put me jail. That is why I got a job at Lowe’s inc. in the first place, but before the plan go through I developed Carpal Tunnel syndrome using scan gun to scan their merchandized then Lowe’s inc. refused to pay for treatments, I was given to them by the government to use me for their inventory advancement.
Now I know Microchip implants are put in my head for “research into behavior modification, and brain and body functioning.” And for other reasons, I found this article in the internet and I have been used for research many ways Georgia Gwinnett County polices put chemical in my private part and send a small device where I sleep massage my back and burn me by heat at the same time parking on my drive way. When I use a bathroom in the morning I urinated inside my body. I called polices so many time but they don’t show if they show up they write the way they wanted, and told companies and other to call and complain and polices removed me form FedEx I was sleep and torture, polices removed me for private property.
Microchip Implants, Mind Control, and Cybernetics: The full story will be found,
“Microchip Implants, Mind Control, and Cybernetics
- by Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde, MD Former Chief Medical Officer of Finland December 6, 2000
In 1948 Norbert Weiner published a book, Cybernetics, defined as a neurological communication and control theory already in use in small circles at that time. Yoneji Masuda, "Father of the Information Society," stated his concern in 1980 that our liberty is threatened Orwellian-style by cybernetic technology totally unknown to most people. This technology links the brains of people via implanted microchips to satellites controlled by ground-based supercomputers. “
“Implanted human beings can be followed anywhere. Their brain functions can be remotely monitored by supercomputers and even altered through the changing of frequencies. Guinea pigs in secret experiments have included prisoners, soldiers, mental patients, handicapped children, deaf and blind people, homosexuals, single women, the elderly, school children, and any group of people considered "marginal" by the elite experimenters. The published experiences of prisoners in Utah State Prison, for example, are shocking to the conscience.
When a 5-micromillimeter microchip (the diameter of a strand of hair is 50 micromillimeters) is placed into optical nerve of the eye, it draws neuroimpulses from the brain that embody the experiences, smells, sights, and voice of the implanted person. Once transferred and stored in a computer, these neuroimpulses can be projected back to the person’s brain via the microchip to be reexperienced. Using a RMS, a land-based computer operator can send electromagnetic messages (encoded as signals) to the nervous system, affecting the target's performance. With RMS, healthy persons can be induced to see hallucinations and to hear voices in their heads.
Every thought, reaction, hearing, and visual observation causes a certain neurological potential, spikes, and patterns in the brain and its electromagnetic fields, which can now be decoded into thoughts, pictures, and voices. Electromagnetic stimulation can therefore change a person's brainwaves and affect muscular activity, causing painful muscular cramps experienced as torture.
The NSA's electronic surveillance system can simultaneously follow and handle millions of people.. Each of us has a unique bioelectrical resonance frequency in the brain, just as we have unique fingerprints. With electromagnetic frequency (EMF) brain stimulation fully coded, pulsating electromagnetic signals can be sent to the brain, causing the desired voice and visual effects to be experienced by the target. This is a form of electronic warfare.. U.S. astronauts were implanted before they were sent into space so their thoughts could be followed and all their emotions could be registered 24 hours a day.
The mass media has not reported that an implanted person's privacy vanishes for the rest of his or her life.. She can be manipulated in many ways.. Using different frequencies, the secret controller of this equipment can even change a person's emotional life. She can be made aggressive or lethargic. Sexuality can be artificially influenced. Thought signals and subconscious thinking can be read, dreams affected and even induced, all without the knowledge or consent of the implanted person. Mind control techniques can be used for political purposes. The goal of mind controllers today is to induce the targeted persons or groups to act against his or her own convictions and best interests. Zombified individuals can even be programmed to murder and remember nothing of their crime afterward. Alarming examples of this phenomenon can be found in the U.S. This “silent war” is being conducted against unknowing civilians and soldiers by military and intelligence agencies. Since 1980, electronic stimulation of the brain (ESB) has been secretly used to control people targeted without their knowledge or consent. All international human rights agreements forbid non consensual manipulation of human beings — even in prisons, not to speak of civilian populations. Under an initiative of U.S. Senator John Glenn, discussions commenced in January 1997 about the dangers of radiating civilian populations. Targeting people’s brain functions with electromagnetic fields and beams (from helicopters and airplanes, satellites, from parked vans, neighboring houses, telephone poles, electrical appliances, mobile phones, TV, radio, etc.) is part of the radiation problem that should be addressed in democratically elected government bodies. ““In addition to electronic MC, chemical methods have also been developed. Mind-altering drugs and different smelling gasses affecting brain function negatively can be injected into air ducts or water pipes. Bacteria and viruses have also been tested this way in several countries. Are we ready for the robotization of mankind and the total elimination of privacy, including freedom of thought? How many of us would want to cede our entire life, including our most secret thoughts, to Big Brother? Yet the technology exists to create a totalitarian New World Order. Covert neurological communication systems are in place to counteract independent thinking and to control social and political activity on behalf of self-serving private and military interests. “Victims of mind control experimentation are thus routinely diagnosed, knee-jerk fashion, as mentally ill by doctors who learned the DSM “symptom” list in medical school. Physicians have not been schooled that patients may be telling the truth when they report being targeted against their will or being used as guinea pigs for electronic, chemical and bacteriological forms of psychological warfare. Time is running out for changing the direction of military medicine, and ensuring the future of human freedom.

My employment at Lowe’s Inc:
I was working for Lowe's inc. while I use a scan gun to scan their merchandised I developed Carpal Tunnel syndrome on 2003. then the store manager said” she has no clue I am not paying" then he told someone to put gift card in my vest pocket to produce evidence and I caught them I found out about Lowe’s Inc. They told us they have merchandises shortage and to look for thieves, and I did exactly the way they train me and they talk about honesty. But I found out Lowe’s inc. people delete and add behind cashier’s work and put gift card cashier’s pocket. Then they call polices and put them in jail. Now I know Lowe” Inc. are lying these are the way advance merchandizes and collecting money from employees. Emigrant employee from Nigeria they told as she did not ring big prices items to her friends, Lowe’s inc. put her jail. For store #640 all of as black emigrant were planned to put as jail for inventory advancement. But when I caught them they stop for a few months. Then they put another emigrant employee put jail they said “she or her sister came to the store she or her sister stole merchandizes then they put her jail before her wedding day.” When they deleted and add Items and amounts on my log in on customer’s accounts and claim thousands and thousands dollar by my name saying costumers pay wrong check or wrong credit card. I asked myself a lot of questions. Are we black emigrants came to the USA for these reasons. I did not see or hear others emigrates form India or Spanish went jail for merchandized advancement for Lowe’s Inc. When they put a gift card in my vest pocket I caught them soon my house is wire all kind devices and Gwinnett County Polices, spies and Lowe's employees secretly enter my house and my car in Georgia and Texas. They sold the house I moved Texas. They are not allowed me to get a job; sometimes for twenty four hours without food and I eat 29 cent soup. The same people came to San Antonio from Georgia. I saw many of them. I called Polices many times. 01-04-2009 I meet one of them they send people to do to say all kind of stuff and car plate TX number 043ZNH. Immediately San Antonio Polices change car tag number, but they police gave me Case No 90010584or 90010384. When I go places like churches or Lawyer offices they told them to close the doors if they allowed me they sat in another room listen and told them what to ask me. A lady hit me by car so I can go to doctors’ office. I did not know Lowe’s inc. is allowed to collect money from employees by law.
On January 2004, Lowe’s inc, send me to Regain Medical center,( Regain Medical’s do whatever Lowe’s said,) Dr. Sandy said “I never heard anybody have wrist pain, then I saw to her the medicine I was taking, then she said I am a technician let me go to asked doctors and she went then Lowe’s inc Doctors and Lowe’s inc Lawyers took meeting, they told her she cannot change to something eels, then she came back told me I am a doctor this is Carpal Tunnel syndrome. Then Lowe’s inc. send me to Resurgents Orthopaedics, I saw Dr Scoot G. Quisling MD. On the fires visit problem crated then I hire a lawyer Mr. Daum. After some visit he changes it to TFCC tear that workers compensation does not cove. There is hostility between Dr Quisling and Mr. Daum. Dr. Quisling wants to win powered and money over Mr. Daum, Soon Lowe’s said our doctors involved we are not allowed her to treat from any doctor. Polices put me a group of people by computer communications like group discussion to get witness, I hear the prisoners talking and prisons guard talking and calling my name, fax sound on my head. I thought it was a dream but it is real I was raped in my house. Even now I know I am Microchip Implants and I have no way to stop it and control my thought. The Doctor and the lawyer power and money straggle; illegally Polices and judges’ order to take my house and my car to the mortgage and finance company, and destroy evidences and the only choice they gave me to go to Sam Shelter, San Antonio TX. A place Polices, researchers and doctors do their heart desire, they want me total control. Then they told me to go get money from charity I went a lot of them all of them collecting information to the government; they all told me they don’t have any money. Catholic charity, like others they put the government agent in another room they interviews me, Catholic charity! They need to come home. From all I went I got ten dollars from the church that arrange to send me to Sam’s shelter. Then on October 7, 2008 polices electronic devices almost create fire, and the San Antonio Polices evict me. Now I sleep inside insect screen fabric bag put boxes inside tie the insect screen by rope sleep under the bridge between loop 410 and Bandar still they use Chemical Warfare and other, in San Antonio, TX.
I wrote to many people including, Senators for the state of Georgia and Texas, for Speaker the house, Nancy Pelosi, (she wrote me she is busy transfer me to Senators to GA, Amnesty International USA (they told me am sorry we cannot help you) Human Right First, response to me “Human Right First can only assist people seeking asylum who live in the Washington Metropolitan area.” ACLU and I wrote Human Rights Watcher too. No help.
Polices and Lowe’s inc. CIA illegal and secretly search, seizure my house and my cars and belongings they took my blood on my sleep and took my cars. And they enter so many families and old friends house secretly, and changing their documents. Lowe’s inc. involved 13 doctors to work for them to have witness. I hire two Lawyers to sue Lowe’s Inc. for benefits but Gwinnett County polices and Lowe’s Inc. hires my Lawyers back and Lowe’ inc. Lawyer takes it out of the Judges calendar. In Texas I rent small room on September 2008 and evict me on October 7, 2008. Then I went court judge granted me, but the landlord (Pastor) move my belongings on has power. They make me homeless and police will not allow me to go to the judge’s building to talk to the judge. When I went courthouse in San Antonio downtown polices escort me out of the building. They told me you are mentally sick you need to see doctors. They want me doctor to diagnoses me mental sick because I know all these. Company’s saw they tortured me, but no company reported, now I sleep on the street and San Antonio polices know where I am any time. They involved from Pastors to psychic, from rich to homeless, form young to old, healthy to sick all kind of color and race. Polices mobilize the society against me.

Thank you kindly

Think about it. Without the ACLU and other individuals and groups we would be a rogue nation without a conscience, (unless it was Spanish).

Thank you all. The aberration that was the Bush gang is going to be exposed for what it was.

Thank You


Maggie - Nice to hear from you again. From my recollection, the former administration said that only three people were water boarded, not three people were tortured. Other claims by the previous administration have been found to be incorrect. I have seen nothing from the ACLU that has been demonstrated false.

Maya...Whenever I think of what the previous administration did, I think of hateful people. Their actions are the reason we are not safe. Release of the pictures might further inflame potential terrorists. Our refusal to release them might do the same.
