US Using Thought Reading Tech on Citizens

Re: A Decade of Thought Reading by the F.B.I.

Dear Fellow Citizen:

I am an American Citizen who has been subjected to criminal abuse at the hands of the F.B.I. since 1994. Their crimes include thought reading, physical torture, verbal abuse broadcast at me and a take-over of my dreams at my expense. Because I became aware of my abuse by their verbal broadcasting of my thoughts to me, their scripted taped responses, the comments of the Agents on shift in response to my thoughts -- or to augment their abuse, and dream manipulations, I have followed their agenda pretty much since it's conception. Mostly through T.V. and a little through newspapers. Until recently, information on the method of their verbal broadcasting (which can be heard by the victim, but not by others in the same vicinity) has been kept secret. The August 5th edition of Newsweek has an article “Hearing is Believing” (written by Jamie Reno and N’gai Croal) that explains the manipulation of sound waves to isolate a target to hear what others around them cannot. Please note that this technology was developed over a decade ago at MIT. The system that the F.B.I. is using to broadcast at me is definitely not limited to a 100 yard broadcast field. In a like manner, the outrageousness of claiming that thought reading technology exists and is in use currently by the F.B.I. will be exposed in the future. Time Magazine reported in it’s October 12, 2002 article by Jeffrey Kluger “There are experimental -- and controversial -- sensors that analyze a suspect’s brain waves and determine what he knows and what he doesn’t.“ Further in the article under the paragraph heading “Tapping into a Suspects Brain Waves: Can your brain waves reveal whether you’re telling the truth? ... Developed by Larry Farwell, 53, a Ph.D. in biological psychology, brain fingerprinting ... looks for electrical responses, common to all of us, that the brain emits when we see a familiar image.” The article goes on to say that in a case involving Terry Harrington, in March 2001 a district judge rejected Mr. Harrington’s petition to accept brain fingerprinting as evidence of his innocence, ruling that brain fingerprinting, while admissible, had not been through scientific peer review and would not have changed the outcome. Harrington is appealing the ruling to the Iowa Supreme Court.

These two technologies as currently introduced are weaker versions of the technologies that allow the broadcasting virtually word for word of my thoughts to me that the F.B.I. has and is using. My guess is that the F.B.I. is introducing these technologies in court cases so that legal precedents can be established to be used to support the introduction of thought reading in criminal investigations and trials. The technologies are probably not exactly like the powerful ones used on me, so that even if these current ventures into the legal system fail, the F.B.I. can ignore the courts and try a different approach to the problems of legalizing thought reading. As it is, they are ignoring the Kyllo ruling in Oregon, when the judge ruled that new, even yet undisclosed more invasive technologies must at least be treated by the strict guidelines placed on less invasive technologies in regards to warrants, and the like. (This ruling was restrictive to the use of thermal imaging randomly of people’s homes.)

These agents of the F.B.I. have taken advantage of the fact that this technology is not known to the public or the press, so people like me claiming to be victims have been considered lunatics by those we contact for press coverage, legal help or law enforcement against this crime. If you take the time to read the Newsweek article I mentioned above and to follow the case being prepared to submit to the Iowa Supreme Court on brave wave reading, you will see that what I describe below and my targeting by the F.B.I. is believable based on the current administration’s now announced interest in these technologies.

I have written letters about this crime since 1995 on a consistent basis. I self imposed a year moratorium on my letters when George W. Bush was first elected.. The F.B.I., under Director Louis Freeh, used 'domestic' terrorism as a reason of excuse for their abuse of power. The reason some people like me where chosen to be pure victims, unused in any crime prosecution, was in case the thought reading technology's use by the F.B.I. was exposed. They didn't want to bring into contention any convictions that were won by Feds during its use. They wanted a fail safe, "Yes, we committed an unreasonable crime" defense to hold off any great review of Federal Court Cases (a political sacrificial lamb).

President Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno wanted this secret technology (thought reading) to be made acceptable legally in the United States, but knew that they first had to set up a propaganda machine to try to over-ride the expected negative reaction from the public. Because they ultimately wanted to use it in law enforcement, they gave this technology for use in the United States to the F.B.I. Because they expected a backlash from the citizens, they kept this technology secret.

The movie "Terms of Engagement" suggests that the government used verbal broadcasting of an abusive nature during its siege of the compound. This is similar to the verbal abuse that I have endured since 1994 (previous to the Branch Davidians confrontation). Keep in mind that there was active thought reading being done by at least the same organization (F.B.I.) that controlled the raid. Couldn't thought read technology have informed the Federal Agents involved of where the children where, when it might be the best time to attack without threatening the lives of the young? Or even, what negotiation technique might have kept the violence from happening? But at that time, Janet Reno wanted a showcase. Not only the media and civilian propaganda of what happens to individuals who would join any organized group against the government, but also of the complete power and control of the F.B.I. And that, no matter how broadcast the event was, people were puppets that would not speak up.

Plus, Oklahoma Federal Building bombing: there was a fairly large spread rumor via the Internet, that Timothy McVeigh stated that he had had a chip implanted so that the government could know what he was up to. Was anyone speaking out about being thought read to be put under the suspicion of being possibly violent? It could have been used after the fact as a dividing factor. Plus, the Oklahoma Federal Building was bombed long after I became victimized by thought reading ability. It was on 60 minutes that a woman informant told F.B.I. officers prior to the event that something big was happening at the extremist group that Timothy McVeigh was visiting. And nothing was done. While repeatedly going before the Senate to justify their non-disclosure of their technology and their use of it based on their testified knowledge of threats to America by domestic terrorists, the F.B.I. was furthering proof of these threats by politicizing their investigations to encourage the appearance that domestic terrorism was a real threat. Even to the point that a brother agency, Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms issued a daring public statement that the F.B.I. deliberately delayed the findings from the in flight explosion of a TWA jetliner on the East Coast to advance the belief that domestic terrorism was a real threat; even though the F.B.I. had themselves concluded that the accident was caused by a gas explosion in the cargo bay.

There is a great threat imposed by these individuals who try to intimidate the normal entities that safe guard our constitution by checks and balances in power between the Courts, the legislature and the executive branch of the government.

At home, after the attacks on the World Trade Towers on September 11, 2001, no one would justify the use of illegal secret technology to protect Americans from terrorist attack. It had happened anyway. Bush announced the plan to fund and man the Homeland Security Task Force.

Even after the September 11th attacks, and the new mandate by F.B.I. administration that terrorism is to be their first priority, I have continued to be thought read, dream manipulated, tortured and verbally abused by F.B.I. agents who have basically done the same thing to me for over a decade. They have spent more man-years on my abuse then they stated that they spent on the Oklahoma Federal Building bombing. I have been under thought read surveillance 7 days a week, 24 hours a day, for eleven years.

Until the populace knows about this technology and the ways that it can be used to harm us, there are no guarantees that we are safe.

Just as the equipment used to broadcast to me has become available to the public (Newsweek, Aug. 5th, 2002 “Hearing is Believing”), the F.B.I. may introduce thought reading technology and propose that using thought reading technology is a limitable, specific, warrantable search tool. Seven years ago they practiced a technique on me where they had people who looked like people I knew placed near me, or had people say things by me that triggered memories of my past. They will propose that under such directed stimuli, it can be reasonably assumed that the search of a person’s thoughts at that time will yield specific information and is warrantable. Miranda rights are required because the Supreme Court reasoned that during arrest, the display of authority by police versus the vulnerability of the suspect creates an environment likely to compel a suspect to violate their own civil rights prior to counsel.

To create a state of mind in a person during an investigation is a display of force unjustified under the presumption of innocence that involuntarily compels subservience to law enforcement authority without reasonable cause or due process. And thoughts, unlike hard evidence discovered in a normal search, are incapable of being scrutinized past their event, for example by defense counsel, judge or jury. Paths of thought reflect inscrutable subconscious stimuli and thoughts are not the same as intent or action. They are an involuntary reflex, which we have no control over, unlike our actions.

"The sanctity of the privacy of one's own thoughts to use as counsel to oneself" - that's my saying. Or to quote a Supreme Court Justice "The right to be left alone".
