Barbara Hartwell, The Merchant of Venom,
Pulls Out All the Stops to Slam Ken Adachi
[Editor's Note: April 3, 2005. I just got to read Barbara
Hartwell's slam piece about me. I went to Geral Sosbee web site for the
first time today and found it. Despite Hartwell's absurd allegation that
Sosbee's is one of my 'assigned ' targets to discredit, I never even heard
of Geral Sosbee until I read his name from another of Hartwell's poisoned
pen 'reports'. I suppose I could take the time to isolate and rebut every
sentence and paragraph that she has written here about me (as Hartwell has
done with my words), but it will take you forever to slog through Hartwell's
part as it is, so I'll limit myself to a few remarks here and possibly reply
in greater detail at another time. Her slanders against me are less significant
than the slanders she arrays against her prime target, Ted Gunderson (although
no less vociferous). Besides, since Hartwell has elevated me, in the course
of the mini-novel below, from Gunderson's "stooge" to Gunderson's
"slave" (even calling me "Steppin' Fetchet"), I think
it only fitting that I should take a back seat position to that of my 'massa',
I guess I'll just make some general observations here and
save the specifics for another day. It'll take too long for you to read
and require too much of my time to write it. Of course, I realize that Hartwell
has all the time in the world to write poison pen essays, because that's
all she does. In fact, that's all she's ever done since she began
showing up on the internet: posting a continuing stream of rants against
Ted Gunderson and anyone else that her twisted, mind controlled psyche targets
as the 'enemy'. Ted Gunderson mentioned that point in the
reply I posted to this web site yesterday and Todd Fahey also brought
it up in the e-mail he posted to a yahoo chat list (which
I also posted to my web site). Barbara Hartwell's contribution to the
world of any real news or real revelations about the CIA
or military intelligence, or high level Illuminati players or even low level
Illuminati gofers, that she claims to have so much deep, black knowledge
about, has been a fat ZERO.
From Day One, the venom spewing Ms Hartwell has told us NOTHING
of any value or significance about ANTHING. Her entire internet 'career',
if we can call it that, amounts to an endless river of rants, complaints,
whining tirades, and most of all-slander- against anyone who gets in her
cross hairs. She takes Todd Fahey to task in the diatribe below for criticizing
her woeful lack of substantial content by saying that he never saw "her"
tapes, etc. Well I've seen two of "her" tapes and the first thing
I need to remind MOV of is that they were not "her" tapes. The
two video tapes I've seen with Barbara Hartwell were shot at a Connecticut
conference on mind control and another expo on mind control which featured
Brice Taylor and Ted Gunderson as the invited speakers and Ms Hartwell tagging
along and maneuvering her way in front of the camera. The filming of those
tapes were paid for by other than her and owned by people other than "her".
And what did she tell us on those tapes? Nothing, exactly as Todd
Fahey had framed it.
Among the mountains of distortions that she presents here
and elsewhere, you will notice the mantra-like repetition of her slandering
prevarications, interspersed with her constant claims of "truth"
telling, "documented" proof, eyewitness testimony, etc. and her
allegiance to honor, ethics, God, and the High Moral Ground coupled with
her commitment to fight the Good Fight no matter what, and to struggle on-despite
the phalanx of obstacles strewn in her righteous path by oafish curs like
Adachi or Gunderson.
She's employing a brain washing technique (acquired undoubtedly
during her CIA MK Ultra 'training') used by the communists at the United
Nations during the 1950's and 60's as well as the North Koreans before and
after the Korean war. At the UN, the Soviet Union would drone on and on
and on at Security Council meetings or even at General meetings about how
evil and foul the sins of capitalism were and warn of the imminent implosion
of the United States due to rank internal corruption. After a few years,
the US delegation just stopped rebutting and countering their charges because
everyone there "knew" it s was just propaganda, BUT these orations
went into the written record (unchallenged) and had the cumulative
and subconscious effect of gradually undermining the credibility
of the United States because it's a tried and true brainwashing technique.
Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice, etc. use this technique all the time in speeches
and at press conferences. It's an Orwellian inspired, Tavistock technique
of mind conditioning seen with all who engage in 'professional'
level propaganda. And this is one area where I'm willing to credit Barbara
Hartwell with "professional" credentials: she's a 'professional'
propagandist. The need to repeat the mantras frequently enough to have the
desired brainwashing effect also accounts for the excessive length of Hartwell's
articles. Volume is a key component of any propaganda effort. By the way,
this observation, you should note, is made by a man who Hartwell claims
is dumber than a brick. Now if a dumb farmer like me can recognize it, then
you should have no trouble seeing it as well.
What also become obvious to anyone who takes the time to read
enough of Barbara Hartwell's writing is to realize that this woman is
living in a dream world in her mind. She sees herself as a Don Quixote-like
warrior with a persecution complex that diffuses and bleeds through her
rhetoric like fine oil on blotter paper. It's easy to miss this because
Hartwell is a skilled writer and presents her expositions in a logical (although
thoroughly untruthful) layout, yet the psychosis is there, once
you begin to focus on it. Her insulting language is loud, harsh, and emotionally
charge, so you are mostly overwhelmed by the coarseness of her invective,
but if you can divest yourself of an emotional reaction to her jarring words
and regain your sensitivity, you can then more plainly see the pathetic
individual behind the Dragon Fire front.
Barbara says that I have no 'evidence' to prove that she's
a liar, a slanderer and a propagandist. Well, I don't know what sort of
'evidence' she would expect me to have other than the words she has posted
on the internet, but what other 'evidence' do I really need to prove her
duplicity other than her words? Her own words have condemned her. Isn't
this the real reason that so many web sites owners like Uri Dowbenko,
who used to host her articles, will no longer post her rants?
Barbara Hartwell has a urgent need to discredit me. Apparently,
this 'moronic dupe' and 'parrot' for 'Massa' Gunderson has hit a few nerves
with the Cobra Lady and she's now anxious to see me go away by unloading
both barrels in my face, but I'm not rattled by her barbs because I still
possess a mind that has not been tampered with or programmed, and I can
recognize truth from fiction-and deceit. I can certainly recognize when
an innocent and loyal 77 year old American patriot named Ted Gunderson who
has been trying to help the American people wake up to the NWO disaster
that's staring us in the face, has been victimized by a CIA MK Ultra character
assassin for five years running, with a viciousness that knows no bounds...Ken

EDITOR & "EDUCATOR" KEN ADACHI:
STOOGE & APOLOGIST FOR CROOKS, LIARS, WHACKJOBS & PORNO-MONGERS
Note to the readers from Barbara Hartwell:
This report is lengthy. There are several important reasons for this. Firstly,
it covers a lot of ground. I am addressing issues and events which for the
most part span a time period from 1999 until the present, March 2005, though
some of the events described may precede this timeline.
Secondly, my former website, barbarahartwell.com, went off-line in August
2004. Since that time I have been working on other projects, leaving little
time for publishing reports on the Internet. So I've only recently gotten
around to addressing some of the political chicanery, skullduggery and criminal
activities, which for my purposes (including in this case, my own defense)
need to be exposed. For those interested, my new website, Hartwell Archives,
will soon be on-line. (See URL above).
But the third and most compelling reason for the length of this report is
that it is based on FACTS. I have enumerated many of these facts, often
in numbered lists. The report also provides evidence (or directs the readers
where to find it) to substantiate some of those facts, along with the testimony
of reliable witnesses and trustworthy sources, most of whom are named. Such
attention to detail takes up quite a bit of space. But the facts speak for
In my usual style (as those familiar with my writings will know) I've also
used subject headings in BOLD ITALIC CAPS in the hope of making it easier
for the readers to identify the various topics under discussion.
And although I often use sarcasm and humor to make my case, it will become
clear that the subject matter and the characters featured here lend themselves
to just such an approach. There are some very strange and whacked-out people
in this world, involved in some very bizarre activities and operations.
What is even stranger, most of them seem to be working for the U.S. Government!...
as law enforcement personnel, intelligence operatives or, as some featured
in this report, their stooges, dupes and minions.
Nonetheless, I'm sure that the more discerning readers won't let the satirical
nature of my writing style overshadow the fact that that I am as serious
as deadly sin (of which there is much elaborated on herein) about what is
being reported here; as well as in my dedication to putting as many of these
crooks and scamsters as possible out of business, once and for all.
All persons named in this report are referred to by their actual names and
bear as precise a resemblance as I am capable of describing, to themselves.
No names have been changed to cover up for the guilty, nor even to protect
the innocent. This report is not about protection. It is about justice.
WANT TO EDUCATE YOURSELF?
For those who enjoy "educating" themselves — at least about
the latest escapades and schemes of some of the sleaziest con men, whack
jobs and liars on the planet — here's some exciting news!
Congratulations are in order to Ken Adachi, crackpot and willing stooge
for the New World Order, who serves as PR man and apologist for ex-FBI agent
and COINTELPRO Head Honcho Ted L. Gunderson and his entourage of dupes and
flunkies. The ever-enterprising Mr. Adachi has now expanded his disinformation
data base and shown himself to be quite the talent scout.
Apparently, Gunderson's handlers (the Dark Overlords who control Adachi
through Gunderson) have become so desperate to discredit Barbara Hartwell
(whom Adachi has been running his malicious smear campaign against since
2001) that he is now scraping the bottom of the barrel and has dredged up
two (2) fabulous new "talents" to promote on his government-sponsored
disinfo site, which he calls "Educate Yourself". (Better known
among legitimate professionals as Indoctrinate Yourself.)
What's more, it's a real plus that Adachi's splendid new recruits have no
need of indoctrination: They're already working 'round the clock to harass
Barbara Hartwell, against whom they are each running their own malicious
libel campaigns, just chock-full of outrageous lies. (How's that for a coincidence?)
Yes indeed, Adachi has gone slumming. If you thought Patriot Spy Ted Gunderson
was bad news (or perhaps becoming an increasing liability where credibility
is concerned) well, just take a look (though you might not want to look
too long) at what Adachi has scraped from the bottom of the trash bin: Todd
Brendan Fahey, "Friend of Liberty" and false "conservative
patriot"; and cross-dressing conspiracy kook Tim White. (I do hope
Adachi was wearing rubber gloves, or he'll surely contract one of those
COMMONALITIES OF ADACHI'S NEW COMPATRIOTS: TODD FAHEY, TIM WHITE
As will become quite clear as you read on, Adachi's new compatriots and
partners-in-slime, Fahey and White, have much in common. Both are foul-mouthed
users and promoters of pornography. Both have a long history of arrests
on drug and/or alcohol related charges. Both are delusional wanna-bes who
fancy themselves "players" among the International Intelligence/Law
Enforcement Community and attendant Conspiracy Crowd. Both are pathological
liars. Both engage in criminal stalking and harassment (on foot, in vehicles,
by phone and in cyberspace). Both have been known to cook up some very nasty
blackmail/extortion schemes. Both make a regular practice of theft of documents
and sundry other items. Both labor under the burden of profound psychopathology,
including paranoid fantasies (of the clinical sort) and obsessive-compulsive
disorders. Both are sniveling little sissies and cowards who couldn't fight
their way out of a wet paper bag if their lives depended on it. Lastly and
certainly most relevant for the purposes of this report, both Fahey and
White have targeted Barbara Hartwell and associated persons for libel, stalking
and various forms of criminal harassment.
TODD BRENDAN FAHEY: PORNO MONGER
Let's start with Adachi's newest find, Todd Brendan Fahey. Drug-addicted
boozehound, delusional whackjob and pathological liar who uses, sponsors
and promotes pornographic filth, including on his website, Friends of Liberty.
(Great choice, Adachi. Your credibility as an "educator" will
certainly soar as a result of this judicious new alliance!)
One of Fahey's latest forays into the lurid underworld of his own psychotic
fantasies has been to promote outrageous lies about a woman he is clearly
obsessed with, namely Barbara Hartwell, claiming (among many other lies)
a non-existent (except in his sick fantasies) sexual conquest, after his
sleazy advances were repelled and he was thrown out of my home for drunk
and disorderly conduct, when police answered a 911 call on July 4, 2004,
to remove Fahey from my property.
And as several of my associates and legal advocates can testify (and eventually
will, in a court of law) they have collected reams of evidence against Fahey,
in the form of documentation:
Fahey's dissemination of libelous pornographic filth targeting Hartwell,
all over the World Wide Web. A practice he has continued unabated from July
2004, right to the present time, March 2005. Since I have an absolute loathing
of pornography in any form, I have refused to subject myself to seeing Fahey's
filthy lies in print and refuse to read any such libelous postings myself.
But they won't be lost, they are being collected as evidence by friends
who've agreed to do so on my behalf.
I learned, much to my horror, that Fahey in fact had a history of promoting
pornography on several websites, including Friends of Liberty. I personally
had not seen such material, but then I wouldn't have been looking for it.
When I first heard of this abomination, back in May 2004 (roughly one month
before the lying lunatic Fahey arrived at my home) I didn't want to believe
it. Neither did my best friend and professional colleague ex-FBI agent Geral
Sosbee, who also serves as a witness in certain aspects of my case against
After a brief discussion, back in May 2004, Geral and I dismissed the warnings
about pornographic content on Fahey's site, FoL, because at that time neither
of us knew the REAL Todd Fahey. We were biased in his favor, as we still
believed him to be credible, one of the good guys, which is why we both
tried to help him when he got himself into deep trouble in several countries
in Southeast Asia. First he was fired from his job at a university and was
thrown out of South Korea; he only avoided official deportation by blackmailing
a school official (about a sex scandal, naturally). And which he actually
boasted about in a post on his site, FoL.
Finally, he was deported from Thailand in June 2004 after several arrests
connected to drunken bar brawls, in all of which Fahey got his sorry ass
kicked. Not surprising, since Fahey's idea of "self defense" is
provoking a fight by throwing scalding coffee in someone's face, if he deems
he has been verbally insulted. Typical coward's way, before the other guy
even touches him or draws first blood.
My friend Geral also has a loathing of pornography, one of our many commonalities.
And had I known then what I know now — that Todd Fahey is a porno-monger
— he would never have been allowed to set foot in my Christian home.
But, as the old saying goes, the devil's in the details. Here is an e-mail
sent to me by Geral Sosbee, describing the notice he received on May 10,
2004, by a filter system, when he tried to access Fahey's Web site, Friends
"I am in the public library at Harlingen, Texas, where the site Friends
of Liberty is blocked by Lightspeed Filter Systems for porno content. Geral"
No, at the time we really did not want to believe it. But as we later learned,
there was indeed pornographic content on Fahey's site, Friends of Liberty.
The filter system did not lie. But the same cannot be said for Todd Fahey.
He lies …and lies …and lies …
Furthermore, in his massive dissemination of his false and libelous claims,
bearing false witness against Barbara Hartwell, Fahey has contradicted himself
on numerous occasions and continues to do so. It seems he just can't keep
the various lies straight. I suppose it would be tough, especially given
his penchant for living in a perpetual drunken and drug-induced stupor.
And given those alcoholic blackouts (some of which I and my family witnessed
ourselves) how could he possibly keep track of the various fabrications
Freedom of speech is a wonderful thing! So I guess I should just let Fahey
speak for himself …and hang himself with his own lies. Same goes for
his fellow crackpot and new comrade-in-arms in the war against Barbara Hartwell
and associates, Ken Adachi.
ADACHI & FAHEY LIBEL FEST
Here is an e-mail exchange between Todd Fahey and Ken Adachi, posted on
Adachi's site, Educate Yourself, in August 2004. The discussion begins with
Fahey and Adachi celebrating the demise of barbarahartwell.com, which went
off-line at that time. And, as usual, engaging in false speculations as
to the reasons my site was taken down. The discussion moves on to the typical
public dissemination of lies about Barbara Hartwell.

Blabs Hartwell's Web site is no more. Dunno the details, but
am happy about this, as she resorted to sending YOUR (persons' names deleted)
PERSONAL MAIL to her on her site. Which was an unscrupulous thing to do.
She's broke, desperate, given to the alcohol jones, and living
in a house that is not owned by her, but by a "friend," who is
a Bircher. She paid out $800 during my stay at her house to have one of
her (5) five cats examined (it had drank anti-freeze, somewhere in the town,
and the summer-renters of the house where B. Hartwell lives tracked her
down, to tell her that they'd found her cat deeply sick, under their trailer).
So, Blabs is broke, and maybe she can't afford to manage her own Web site.
I DOUBT this is the case, though, as the hosting service which
held her stuff online is also, now, defunct (OFFLINE).
[BH: Yes, I certainly do have some comments. Factual comments,
1) I have NOT ( never, at any time) received any "PERSONAL
MAIL" from Ken Adachi. Nary a one. It is not possible to "post"
something one has not received. Nor have I posted, at any time, "personal"
e-mail from any of Adachi's cohorts. That also would be impossible, since
I am not in contact with any of them, by e-mail or otherwise. If Fahey's
alcohol-soaked brain were capable of more than just the minimal cognitive
functions, he might realize that it was Adachi HIMSELF who posted the "personal
2) What I actually posted on my site was not "personal
mail" from Adachi (or anyone else) but rather an article refuting the
latest lies about Barbara Hartwell — which Adachi had published on
HIS site and exposing (once again) some of his fellow charlatans, Ted Gunderson,
Pam Schuffert and Tim White for the liars they are.
And Fahey is the one guilty of being "unscrupulous"
by making a regular practice of publishing personal (private) e-mail, NOT
Barbara Hartwell. In fact, Fahey goes one better: He FORGES "private"
e-mail (purported to be from various individuals). He cuts and pastes the
time stamps and e-mail addresses, then publishes these bogus messages on
various sites. Can't get any more unscrupulous than that.
3) My home is NOT (nor ever has been) "owned by a Bircher"
(a member of the John Birch Society). My home belongs to me. Furthermore,
I had never told Fahey any such thing. Like his numerous other lies, he
either was deluded into this belief or, more likely, simply made it up.
4) I do NOT have (nor ever had) the "alcohol jones"
Fahey refers to. Nor do I have any history of alcoholism. I have never been
arrested on an alcohol-related charge. I have never been a patient in any
alcohol rehab facility. As my friends and family (those who actually know
me) can attest, I am a moderate user of alcohol who drinks wine (not the
cheap rot-gut favored by Fahey) at the cocktail hour and with dinner. Unless
it's a special occasion, I rarely have a glass before 1700 hrs (5:00 PM).
But then, Fahey has a habit of projecting all his own worst character flaws,
delusions and nasty habits onto others, in this case Barbara Hartwell.
Fahey himself is a degenerate alcoholic who was forced, while
still in his teens, to spend time in an outpatient rehab facility at his
parents' insistence. I was told this, not only by Todd Fahey (as one of
his many bitter grievances against his parents) but also by his mother,
Darlene Fahey, with whom I had several phone conversations and e-mail exchanges,
both before and after Fahey did his stint of freeloading and wreaking alcohol-induced
havoc in my home. Fahey, in fact, has a long history of alcoholism (and
related arrests) going back over twenty (20) years.
But as always, evidence speaks for itself.
Here is a letter from Todd Fahey's parents. I have removed
the e-mail address, out of respect for their privacy. (Unlike Todd Fahey,
I DO respect the privacy of others.) I believe them to be decent people
and they don't deserve any more trouble caused for them, due to the unconscionable
behavior of their son. I'm certain he has already caused them quite enough
heartache and grief (as well as money, paying the freight every time he
gets himself in trouble.)
Had Todd Fahey not spewed out so many lies and forced me to
use it in my own defense, I would not have published this letter at all.
But it does speak volumes and it does reveal the truth about Todd Fahey,
and from the testimony of his own family, who know him and his history of
alcohol-induced debacles far better than I ever will (or would want to).
TESTIMONY ON THE DEGENERATE ALCOHOLISM OF TODD FAHEY
Sent: Sunday, July 11, 2004 1:13 PM
Dan and I truly appreciate the assistance you offered to Todd and are very
sorry he was a burden to you. Thank you for all you tried to do.
We understand he is in a mental hospital or a half-way house, not quite
sure which and that he underwent a psych analysis but are not certain that
it was very thorough. We do want to repay you for your inconvenience and
the things you did for him. I know you do not have a bank account but would
like to send you a cashier's check to help pay for the time he was there.
We do not know what will become of Todd. He has failed to make the best
of some good opportunities and until he decides he wants to turn his life
around, there is very little else anyone do for him. Best wishes and thank
you from the bottom of our hearts. Please let us know what we can do to
return the favor you extended to Todd.
Darlene and Dan
While at my home, Todd Fahey drank literally every last drop
of alcohol to be found, raiding my kitchen shelves for bottles which had
been sitting there since the previous Christmas (2003) brought by guests
for the holidays. Since I rarely drink hard liquor, the bottles had sat
there on the top shelf for months, gathering dust.
After I and my family refused to provide him with any more
cheap red wine (of which he drank two bottles at a time on a daily basis)
Fahey availed himself of the dusty bottles (rum, vodka, gin) and emptied
them, one by one, all in the same afternoon! This was on July 4, 2004, before
he was finally hauled off by the Old Orchard Beach Police.
THE PLOT THICKENS:
FAHEY'S FABRICATIONS ON BARBARA HARTWELL'S HOME
Oh yes, I forgot. Fahey lied to the police too, spinning his
usual tall tales. He even argued with the police when they told him he had
to leave the property, by insisting that he could NOT be "legally"
thrown out because my home was (according to Fahey's drunken ranting) "owned
not by Barbara Hartwell but rather by a man named Jack Knowles". I
never heard of "Jack Knowles" (if in fact he exists.) But I can
assure anyone reading this that such a person does NOT own my home.
Furthermore, no matter who the legal owner (the person holding
the property deed) of any home is, the legal resident holds all legal rights
to a domicile and surrounding property. The police were well aware of this,
despite Fahey's ploy to claim he had "legal rights" in someone
else's home (mine) even after he had been told to leave, but refused to
do so of his own volition.
And lastly, any business (legal or otherwise);connected to
my home is NONE OF FAHEY'S BUSINESS. Nor anyone else's for that matter.
Never was, never will be. Why he persists with this particular lie about
the ownership of my home by a "member of the JBS" is beyond my
comprehension. He has posted this lie many times and continues to do so.
In any case, who does he think could possibly care? What is this whackjob
really trying to prove?
STRANGE CASE OF THE VANISHING SERVER
5) My website was taken off-line by my decision and for my
own reasons, which again, are none of Fahey's business. Nor Adachi's for
that matter. But as will become clear, their idiotic speculations, respectively,
have absolutely no basis in fact. (For more erroneous conjecture about Barbara
Hartwell's website, including by Tim White, see the end of this report.)
And the server for my former website has NOT gone "OFF-LINE".
It is NOT "defunct". The server (which happens to be in Canada)
is still right there, where it has been for years. But aside from his primary
modus operandi, fabricating lies, it's likely Fahey was just too soused
to find it.
CAT TALES: FAHEY'S FELINE-O-PHOBIA
6) My cat, whose name was Hercules, DIED of the poisoning
from antifreeze he ingested, a fact Fahey conveniently fails to mention.
The veterinary bills, including the examination and tests at the emergency
clinic, the euthanasia and the cremation, came to a total of $700.00, which,
as I told Fahey, happened to be the last money I had. NOT $800.00, as Fahey
claims, for a cat who was merely "deeply sick" (whatever he means
In any case, his "concern" only extended to the
loss of money (mine, not his) and the effect on himself, not to the death
of my beloved pet, Hercules. As Fahey made very clear, he doesn't like cats.
After all, he couldn't spend them; couldn't drink them; couldn't exploit
them. They served no purpose in Fahey's world of hedonistic, self-centered
Fahey has quite a habit of pulling bogus names, dates and
numerical figures out of thin air. Since he doesn't know the facts, he concocts
statements which he presents AS IF they were facts. Same type of scheme
being run by Ken Adachi and others of their ilk.
Fahey refers to Hercules as "it" (instead of "he")
typical of someone with an intense dislike for animals and who has no respect
or concern for life in any form (except perhaps for his fellow maggots).
But from what I've witnessed firsthand, and based on my observations of
his depraved lunacy, Fahey himself could more appropriately be referred
to as "it".
I considered Hercules a member of my family. He was also a
beloved friend, something I can't say for Fahey. And the surviving cats
were very happy to be rid of Fahey, as they didn't like him at all. They
often hissed at him and hid under the tables when he entered a room. Can't
say I blame them. So in celebration of Fahey's departure we broke out the
catnip, put on some of my favorite R&B gospel music (which Fahey also
hated) and had ourselves a party!
A BAROMETER FOR FAHEY'S FALSEHOODS …NOT!
But, before I forget to mention it, here's an idea that just
might help anyone reading Fahey's long chain of ever-proliferating lies:
Just insert the word NOT! …after any claim made by Fahey. That would
seem the best way of arriving at the truth.
As one poster put it, addressing some of the lies being promoted
by Fahey (about a different topic) on a site called Liberty Post:
"Since you're wrong about everything - including "the
whereabouts of Barbara Hartwell" - I doubt your opinion counts for
anything. I should imagine, the only reason you weren't deported from Korea
was that no one wanted you back in America. "
Amen and amen! Good call. That's right, according to one of
the many "facts" Fahey claimed to "know" Barbara Hartwell
had lost her home (owned by a JBS member) in Maine (he got the name of the
town wrong, too) and had "relocated to Brownsville Texas to share an
apartment with one Geral Sosbee." …NOT!
It certainly warms my heart to know that there are plenty
of discerning people out there who see Todd Fahey for the liar and degenerate
whackjob he really is. It appears that Fahey has now been banned from Liberty
Post, as well. For his continuing libelous obscenities, what else? Though,
as usual, he has accused yet another moderator of "censorship".]

[BH: Fahey's "notes" which he has volunteered to

Lies fabricated by Fahey for the purpose of getting his revenge

refuted by a number of credible witnesses, he knows JACK (and I don't mean

Sure. I haven't lived with her (Praise the Lord), but I have
lots of her stuff gathered over the years from the internet.
What did you want to cover about her?
[BH: Well, one accurate statement, among many of his usual
falsehoods: Adachi has NOT lived with me. Nor has he ever met me. Nor does
he know me. Nor does he know anything about me, my background or my professional
credentials, at least nothing that is real or true …Nor about any
other area of my life or personal history. Which makes it all the more dreadfully
presumptuous, intrusive and unscrupulous for him to make and publish his
many false claims, what he THINKS he knows about Barbara Hartwell.
And I must wonder at hearing Adachi "Praising the Lord"
since he is anything but a Christian. In fact, he hangs out with a gaggle
of loud-mouthed bogus "Christians", individuals such as Pam Schuffert,
Ted Gunderson and Tim White (all of whom are featured on his site) each
and every one of whom has made a mission of bearing false witness, especially
about their primary target, Barbara Hartwell. Frankly, I can't imagine a
more ungodly group of people.]

Well, she sure as hell brought up your name a lot, during
my 18-day stay at the house that's been loaned to her by a member of the
John Birch Society (she doesn't own the house in Maine). Sez you're CIA
(but, then, she says almost everyone is CIA, doesn't she?).
She didn't really describe you, physically, but, to the best
of my memory, I think she said that you and she met once or possibly several
She was filled with venom about you, for some reason. (Not
that that would be any surprise to you).
Am swamped at-present (will be free tomorrow), with teaching
duties in South Korea (yes, I made it out of that mad-hatter's house and
out of Amerika). Will correspond very soon, regarding my ideas about Blabs.
P.S.: Any new news about the state of her Web site? I just

FAHEY'S FAULTY TIMELINE OF DATES & EVENTS
[BH: Once again, I'll number my comments, the easier to refute
Fahey's numerous lies.
1) Fahey arrived at my home on the afternoon of June 14, 2004.
He was thrown out on the afternoon of July 4, 2004. So, let us count the
days...that makes twenty (20) days in all, nearly THREE (3) WEEKS. NOT EIGHTEEN
(18) DAYS, as Fahey claims. He returned to stalk me on July 6 and was removed
once again by the police. Which make the total of days in which Fahey was
still lurking around my home and harassing me TWENTY- TWO (22) days in all.
But Fahey's various claims regarding the length of his stay;
as well as the dates of his arrival and departure, as usual, contradict
themselves. In one post on a site called Liberty Forum (posted in July,
2004) Fahey insisted that he had been at my home ONLY THIRTEEN (13) days,
NOT the three weeks he was actually here, as correctly stated in my first
article, Report on Todd Brendan Fahey. NOT the "18 days" he later
claims in his e-mail to Adachi.
He also repeatedly claimed that he had NOT been thrown out
on July 4. Several of my neighbors, who witnessed the drunken scene Fahey
made in the backyard and in the street, on the afternoon of July 4, Independence
Day, have a different story to tell. The TRUE story, that is. So do two
of my relatives and, let us not forget the police — who hauled the
drunken lunatic Fahey away in their cruiser.
What's more, I have all the evidence to substantiate the facts
and the truth. I have witnesses (including my family members and the police).
I have copies of the police reports, dated July 4 and July 6. I have a letter
from the Police Chief of Old Orchard Beach, and from one of the detectives
who investigated Fahey's criminal harassment by phone and stalking (on July
6) after he was ejected on July 4. And I have the original receipts for
Fahey's plane flight, hotel room in New York City, and AMTRAK train ticket
(which he left scattered around my house) all of which confirm the ACTUAL
date of his arrival, June 14, 2004.
Fahey is lying, as usual. But since his intent is to deceive
everyone willing to listen, it would certainly behoove him to at least get
his own LIES straight and be consistent in those lies, because contradicting
himself in his various lies does nothing to enhance his credibility. Add
to this the fact that Fahey lacks ANY evidence; has NO witnesses for his
many false claims. Thus, he has no way of corroborating his claims or establishing
them as factual. That is because, of course, they are NOT.
IS KEN ADACHI CIA MATERIAL? …NOT!
2) I never "brought up" Ken Adachi's name. I merely
(on one occasion) showed Fahey a copy of my article in response to Adachi's
latest libelous tirade against Barbara Hartwell, which was written while
Fahey was at my home. (And I should add, at one of the rare moments when
I had access to my own computer, which Fahey had commandeered for his own
use, and which he tampered with, causing it to go haywire.)
When Fahey asked, Who is Ken Adachi? I replied that he is
"just a little stooge" for Ted Gunderson et al. That was the end
of the conversation. Finis. I don't make a practice of wasting my time talking
about crackpots like Adachi.
Anything I have to say is put into a public report (like this
one) for the purpose of refuting Adachi's many lies with the truth and the
facts. And considering that Adachi makes a regular practice of writing and
publishing libelous articles — as well as e-mail messages from his
cohorts and readers of his site, about Barbara Hartwell, my occasional reports
refuting the lies are vastly outnumbered. Who could find the time? Or for
that matter, want to waste the time addressing each and every lie, in each
and every libelous commentary ? I'm only one person, but there are many
(too many) Adachis out there. So it is my policy to just ignore most of
Adachi's attacks, wait awhile (sometimes months or even years) and strike
back in one comprehensive fact-filled report. Just like this one.
For Fahey to claim that I said Adachi is "CIA",
only shows his profound ignorance (as well as his penchant for lying under
any and all circumstances). Adachi himself should know that I have never
labeled him CIA, though I am sure he was eager to believe anything and everything
said by Fahey, especially if he thought it would enhance his status among
the government disinfo crowd (all of whom are CIA wannabe-be's, though they
pretend to despise the Agency) he hangs with.
I challenge anyone to go through anything I've ever written
about Adachi. NEVER ONCE have I claimed Ken Adachi to be CIA. That notion
is as ludicrous as saying that Todd Fahey is CIA. Though I'll admit that
few CIA operatives, among the many I've known, happen to be the sharpest
tools in the shed, nonetheless Fahey and Adachi are both too stupid (and
delusional) by far to be CIA material, under any set of criteria.
True, recruitment standards have plummeted over the years
but still, neither of these clowns could come even close in making the cut.
Which, I might add, could easily explain why these CIA wanna-bes (and others
like them, such as Tim White and Brenda Negri) are being exploited by others
with bona fide intelligence backgrounds. Also the reason they are green
with envy of anyone who actually DID work for CIA. The malice they hold
in their hearts comes out in the form of their vicious and libelous attacks
against Barbara Hartwell, always, always insisting that "Hartwell is
And though I'm very tired of saying it, I'll say it again
for the record:
I do NOT work for CIA. I do NOT take pride in having worked
for them. Nor am I ashamed of it, since I had little choice in the matter,
as a child, coming from a multi-generational Military Intel/OSS/CIA family;
and since I got out by fighting my way out and have suffered the consequences
ever since — being harassed and persecuted by anyone and everyone
who has something to lose if I expose what I know.
In fact, I left the Criminally Insane Agency in the dust,
OVER TEN (10) YEARS AGO. I have never gone back. I have refused all bribes
to go back. I have refused all pay-offs in the form of hush money to keep
silent about what I know. I am not "under mind control" by CIA.
Any programming by them is long gone, thanks to the Grace of God. (Divine
Intervention is something these folks obviously don't believe in. Why would
they? They're on the wrong side, being used as tools of the devil.)
This gaggle of government dupes (including Adachi) hate me,
seemingly only because I DID work for CIA at one time, and survived to expose
their black ops, something none of them has ever done, nor could have done.
They did not (and still don't) have direct access to any such information.
The only "information" they have access to is DISINFORMATION,
that being furnished by disinfo agents like Ted Gunderson.
3) Furthermore, regarding Fahey's claim that "she says
almost everyone is CIA" …NOT!
For anyone who'd like evidence of that, just go to the archives
on my site (or anywhere else my work is published) and check it out for
yourself. Rarely have I claimed that individuals are CIA. As for the names
I have given as being CIA, as always, I have evidence to substantiate these
And just for good measure, I should add that labeling someone
as an "operative", which I have occasionally done (but never in
reference to Adachi) does NOT mean they are necessarily CIA. Operatives
could be working for any number of organizations, governmental or non-governmental.
But then, Fahey and Adachi just love to engage in erroneous conjecture —
pole-vaulting to unsubstantiated conclusions, or twisting information to
misrepresent the facts — that is, anything they believe they can use
to further their libel campaigns against Barbara Hartwell and other legitimate
persons whom they believe threaten their agenda and that of those exploiting
and controlling them. They're a pair of loud-mouthed dupes, little more.
WHERE ARE THE FACTS? WHERE'S THE EVIDENCE?
Fahey and Adachi are missing a few vital components in their
attempts to discredit Barbara Hartwell: Firstly, they don't bother furnishing
evidence. Not surprising, since THERE IS NONE for any of their libelous
allegations. Nor do they concern themselves with facts. It's much more convenient
for them to just fabricate some lies and flood the market, hoping the readers
will believe these lies, that is, if they are repeated often enough. It's
a typical disinformation strategy, though I must say, in their amateurish
mode, neither of them are any good at it. I guess they can only rely on
the ignorance and naivety of most of their reading audience, and hope for
THANKS FOR THE (FALSE) MEMORIES....
"No man has a good enough memory to make a successful
liar." That's Abraham Lincoln's take on it and I couldn't agree more.
4) Fahey's "memory" even at it's "best"
leaves much to be desired. In fact, I have never had the displeasure of
meeting Ken Adachi. Nor did I ever tell Fahey I had met him.
Furthermore, I don't have any idea what Adachi looks like,
nor had I given it any thought. Though, now that I think of it, I might
imagine him as a sort of Japanese version of Toad Bogus Faggy (a description
which speaks for itself) who tries to make up for his lack of integrity,
brains, guts and muscle with pseudo-intellectual drivel and macho bravado).
Nor, considering the fact that I have never seen Adachi, did
I ever give any "description" of him to his-fellow liar, Toad
Faggy. As always, Fahey fabricates whatever he thinks will fly, on the spur
of the moment, in hopes of deceiving anyone he thinks he can exploit to
further his own unscrupulous ends.
In this case, trashing Barbara Hartwell, and trying to paint
me as a liar by telling his OWN falsehoods to a person of Adachi's ilk,
who would (and did; and regularly does) jump at any chance to call Hartwell
a liar; or for that matter, publish as many lies about me as possible, the
more outlandish the better.
5) And lastly, the "venom" Fahey refers to, regarding
Hartwell's attitude to Adachi (which opinion he could only have formed from
reading my commentary on Adachi) is in fact not "venom" but rather
RIGHTEOUS OUTRAGE at the lies being promoted by Adachi. Anyone would be
outraged at the malicious lies promoted by Ken Adachi. I know several persons
who feel exactly the same way, including Stew Webb and Geral Sosbee, whom
Adachi and his cohorts have repeatedly lied about, slandered and libeled.]
ADACHI "EDUCATES" THE PUBLIC: ON CIA OPS, MIND-CONTROLLED
SLAVES, THE HALLS OF ACADEMIA, PROFESSIONALISM & MORE!
Adachi to Fahey:
Hartwell's slam pieces about me usually referred to me as
an insignificant nobody who, essentially, didn't have the 'RIGHT' to comment
about her or her outrageous slanders towards Ted Gunderson and Brice Taylor,
etc. According to her, I wasn't worthy of such comment because I wasn't
within the circle of "professionals", such as herself, which she
oddly considered to be the appropriate category in characterizing the 'work'
of a CIA mind controlled slave.
Setting aside for the moment her pathological slanderings
against Ted and other effective NWO opponents that she was programmed to
attack, she routinely revealed the depth of her psychosis by ballyhooing
her 'professional' accreditation in practically every diatribe she ever
wrote. She wanted the whole world to know -ad nausea- how highly 'educated'
she was, in order to claim a position of authority for the crap she was
She had the temerity to boast that she has a "doctorate"
when in fact she obtained a worthless piece of paper from a diploma mill
for what amounted to a few weeks of 'lessons' via correspondence. I seriously
doubt that the woman ever spent a day of her life in a college classroom.
If she HAD earned an advanced degree in the conventional manner, I'm quite
sure we would heard about it until the cows came home. Anyone, by the way,
can obtain a 'doctorate' of divinity for roughly $100 and a stamp. I have
the catalog here in my files for the Universal Church of Love & Light
(or something close to that) of which I suspect she is an 'alumni'.
Nothing is more boring to me than the subject of Barbara Hartwell,
but her contemptible behavior in repeatedly slandering Ted Gunderson over
the internet, like that of her CIA cohorts, Stew Webb and Linda Newkirk,
is going to be exposed and countered by this 'nobody' until Barbara Hartwell
is widely recognized by the internet world for the utter fraud and CIA disinfo
puppet that she is.
ADACHI'S BOARD OF EDUCATION:; BORED WITH BARBARA HARTWELL
[BH: As usual, Adachi knows NOT whereof he speaks. And I do
have to wonder: If this pompous ass and purveyor of pulp fiction finds the
subject of Barbara Hartwell so very "boring", why not move on
to some more interesting topic...or target?
Why has Adachi continued so obsessively with his libel campaign
for over three (3) years in his attempts to discredit and demonize me? Why
are his epithets (for example, "The Crimson Viper" and "vicious
CIA disinformation agent") fairly oozing with lurid and scandalous
melodrama? Why all the sensationalism in his tirades of invective against
Out of all his mindless drivel, in this latest spiteful missive
to his new pal Todd Fahey, there is certainly one thing I can't argue with:
Adachi is a "nobody". He's an ignoramus; a hanger-on; a dilettante;
a camp follower; the amateur's amateur. And he proves it repeatedly by spewing
out gobbledygook about topics and people he knows absolutely nothing about,
foremost among them, his primary target, the boring Barbara Hartwell.
But if you're asking yourself what Adachi's shtick is, wonder
no more. Just take a look at the plethora of Mickey Mouse Metaphysics; New-Age-Secular-Humanist-Pop-Psychology;
Born-Again Buffoonery and unsubstantiated conspiracy theories being promoted
on his site, with which he claims to be "educating" the readers,
and decide for yourself.
Also take note of the charlatans and mountebanks (some of
whom are also criminals and felons) he promotes. Adachi doesn't know anything
from his own experience. He was never involved in anything he writes about,
most notably the CIA.
He calls Hartwell a "CIA puppet" or "CIA mind-controlled
slave". But it's very clear from his writings that Adachi knows nothing
about any sort of CIA operations, including what he harps on the most: MK
Ultra and related mind control projects. Zero. Zilch. Nada.
If you don't believe me, just ask anyone else who has actually
been involved in CIA operations. Better yet, I only wish you could see (and
hear) some of the other bona fide former (or current) intelligence operatives
as they peruse Adachi's hilarious material. They're falling off their chairs,
shedding tears of mirth, hooting with laughter! I myself have laughed until
I cried. Laughter is certainly good for the soul. Great entertainment, I'll
give Adachi that much.
FROM THE ADACHI FILES: THE UNIVERSAL CHURCH OF LOVE &
Adachi continues with his outrageous lies by stating, AS IF
IT WERE A FACT, that Barbara Hartwell "in fact …obtained a worthless
piece of paper from a diploma mill for what amounted to a few weeks of 'lessons'
A doctorate degree from a "diploma mill"? …NOT!
I wonder what Adachi's "source" is for this latest
"fact" …probably one of the same sources which have furnished
him with his other "facts" about Barbara Hartwell. His misguided
attempts to impugn my legitimate credentials (just as he often does my sanity)
are just par for the course in Adachi's relentless libel campaign.
But here are some FACTS to set Adachi — and his bogus
"sources" — straight:
1) I have never had dealings with, nor am I "an alumni"
(correct word, in the singular, would be "alumnus"; "alumni"
is the plural form. Adachi reveals his own lack of education, here) of any
"diploma mill". Including "the Universal Church of Love and
Light". In fact, I have never even heard of this so-called "church".
It sure sounds typical, though, of something Adachi would have in his files.
(Just in case he runs out of material to educate people about the New Age
"spirituality" touted on his site; or in case they get bored with
the Born Again Buffoonery.)
2) I received my doctorate degree (Doctorate of Divinity)
from a legitimate and reputable seminary school, after years of study; and
was later ordained in the Universalist Church, with which I am no longer
affiliated and haven't been for a long time.
3) I have never "boasted" about holding such a degree; that is
clearly only Adachi's incorrect (as usual) perception. By the same token,
I no longer use the title, Reverend Doctor, as I see no purpose in doing
so, since it bears no relevance to my work in exposing government corruption.
In any case, all such titles come from man-made religious institutions,
not from God. Something Adachi and his cohorts wouldn't begin to understand.
I merely mentioned my seminary degree (and level of education)
in a response to one of Adachi's fellow crackpots, Fundamentalist fanatic
and fear-monger, Pam Schuffert, who falsely claimed that I had "denied
Christ" (among many other falsehoods she spread about me, as well as
my family and friends); and who had the incredible audacity (if Adachi wants
to talk about "temerity", here's a REAL case of it!) to publicly
admonish me, suggesting I needed to "get a Bible" (as if I had
never read or studied one, or did not own one).
So, I told Schuffert off, just as she richly deserved, to
refute her lies with the facts …just the usual when dealing with these
tiresome, self-important and meddlesome buffoons, who all seem to bring
a great deal of trouble on themselves because they have never learned to
respect the privacy or personal boundaries of others; nor to mind their
own business. Nor to limit themselves to speaking about what they KNOW,
rather than that which is based on erroneous supposition and unsubstantiated
conjecture. Or for that matter, their obvious envy and malice.
But so what? Where does Adachi get off spreading lies about
"diploma mills" and bogus seminary degrees? Who the hell does
he think he is? The Religion Police? I can only surmise that his total lack
of evidence for his many false claims about Barbara Hartwell (and others)
doesn't concern him. Same obviously goes for his chums, Schuffert, White,
Negri, Fahey et al. Who needs facts or for that matter, evidence? Why bother?
Easier (cost-effective too!) for these whack jobs to concoct outrageous
lies …then publish them all over the World Wide Web.]
STEW WEBB: "MENTAL PATIENT"? …OR TARGET FOR
Yet another example of Adachi's malicious lies: Adachi has
repeatedly referred to Stew Webb as a "mental patient". Another
fabrication by Ted Gunderson, also being promoted by Gunderson's other minions,
Brenda Negri and Tim White (both of whom are certifiably insane and have
ACTUALLY been institutionalized as "mental patients") which Adachi
dutifully parrots, while having absolutely NO EVIDENCE to substantiate such
character defamation and for impugning Webb's sanity.
Just as he has no evidence that Webb or Hartwell are "CIA
mind controlled slaves" …deployed for the sole purpose of spreading
disinformation about Ted L. Gunderson.
What the profoundly ignorant and deluded Adachi fails to see
(and refuses to even consider) is this:
Ted Gunderson plotted to set up Stew Webb for numerous false
arrests, just as he has done to other legitimate whistle-blowers. At least
those who had hard evidence about some of the criminal operations being
run by Gunderson and his black ops cronies.
A SWAT TEAM RAID IN LAS VEGAS
Add to this the fact that Gunderson actually tried to engineer
the murder of Stew Webb by sending a SWAT team (on a false charge) to raid
a place in the state of Nevada, where Stew was staying. A SWAT team, throwing
grenades through the windows and brandishing assault weapons!
The trailer home, owned by a friend of Stew's, was completely
demolished by the unwarranted assault, when the concussion grenades blew
out all the doors and windows. The owner's dog was also seriously injured.
As for the bogus criminal charges brought against Stew Webb?
They were dropped, completely dismissed. It never even reached a court of
law. Why not? For LACK OF EVIDENCE.
After being interrogated for five (5) hours by police detectives,
the cops left and apologized to Stew Webb for the raid on his friend's trailer
home. The detectives later told Webb that they knew Gunderson to be lying.
Ted Gunderson later used convicted felon (convicted for murder)
Tom Gaule to bring more false charges against Stew Webb. Gunderson falsely
accused Webb of "robbery", which under statutes in the state of
Nevada, is a form of "assault".
Due to this false charge, Stew was forced, for a period of
one and a half years, to report weekly to the Las Vegas Police Dept. But
the prosecutor dropped the charges two (2) weeks before the court date.
Why? Because Gunderson's sidekick, murderer Tom Gaule, had made FALSE CHARGES.
Once again, THERE WAS NO EVIDENCE against Stew Webb.
But who is going to compensate Stew Webb for these outrageous
injustices? No amount of money could make up for the false arrests, SWAT
raids and other relentless political persecution directed against Stew Webb,
these many years.
If you wonder why Stew Webb is filing Grand Jury demands for
investigation of various criminals connected to the Bush Crime Family (including
Ted Gunderson) or why he is filing civil lawsuits against these criminals,
here is one reason: He wants justice. For that matter, so do I. No surprise
here, since I've been targeted for persecution by the same set of government-sponsored
But here's another serious question: Why wasn't Ted Gunderson
himself arrested for bringing these false charges against Stew Webb? Sending
a SWAT team with guns and grenades against an innocent man …which
nearly cost him his life …and would have, had Gunderson's plot succeeded.
Stew has documents as evidence of the outrageous SWAT raid.
A newspaper reporter in Las Vegas, was in fact a witness. Just as Stew has
evidence of many other crimes committed by Ted Gunderson.
But what evidence does Gunderson have that Stew Webb is a
"mental patient"? Or for that matter, an "FBI informant"?
Or that Webb committed ANY crime against Gunderson or anyone else ? Why
have we never seen any such evidence for the never-ending libel against
Stew Webb, displayed on Adachi's website?
By now the answer should be crystal clear: Gunderson and Adachi
HAVE NO EVIDENCE because the allegations against Stew Webb are false, every
last one of them.
KEN ADACHI: GOVERNMENT DUPE & DISINFO PARROT
But perhaps the most relevant question, for the purposes of
this report: Why does Ken Adachi swallow all Gunderson's outrageous and
unsubstantiated allegations against Stew Webb, Barbara Hartwell and others,
hook, line and sinker?
That's not hard to figure out: It's because Ken Adachi is
a dupe, pure and simple. He's apparently not capable of thinking for himself,
critically or analytically; or of exercising any form of cognitive discernment,
spiritual or otherwise.
Squawk! …Adachi simply parrots the outlandish falsehoods
he hears and publishes them as libel against Stew Webb, Barbara Hartwell
and others, as he is directed to do, whenever he is directed to do so.
Adachi want a cracker? Somebody ought to shove one into the
orifice of his perpetually open beak, it might be useful in quieting his
obnoxious and scandalous squawking: Barbara Hartwell, CIA disinfo! …Squawk!
…Stew Webb, mental patient! …Squawk! …Barbara Hartwell,
CIA disinfo! …Squawk! …Stew Webb, mental patient! …enough
already. Put up (some hard evidence, that is) or shut up.
For those who want the truth, here's the deal: Adachi simply
repeats (ad infinitum, ad nauseum) the disinformation and lies he is fed
by professional disinfo agents and spin doctors like Ted Gunderson. Worse,
he makes his pronouncements about people he has never met and DOES NOT KNOW
(such as Barbara Hartwell , Geral Sosbee and Stew Webb) AS IF they were
statements of fact. He presents no concrete evidence for his allegations,
nor has he EVER furnished supporting documentation to back his claims.
Adachi's idea of "evidence" goes something like
"According to So-and-So …(fill in the blank, just
name any of Adachi's dubious sources) Barbara Hartwell is still a CIA asset
who has never gotten out of the CIA's nefarious web or off the payroll".
That's right, Adachi relies only on third-party hearsay, something
not admissible as evidence in any court of law. But Adachi needn't concern
himself with the court system. His only forum is the Internet, a free-for-all
to indulge himself in his libel extravanzas. Anything goes.
It would seem the major difference between Todd Fahey and
Ken Adachi is that Fahey fabricates most of his own lies; whereas Adachi
publishes the lies he has been fed by others (including in one such case,
Ken Adachi runs smear campaigns. He makes his living LYING
TO THE PUBLIC, all the while posing as an "educator". Odd, for
someone who is himself uneducated in any field, discipline or profession.
Adachi targets for his smear campaigns anyone (including Barbara
Hartwell) whom his overlords point the finger at. He targets whom he is
directed to target. He's a flunky, a lackey, a toady, a minion, a step'n'fetch-it.
Adachi wants to talk about being a "slave" or "puppet"?
As many will agree, he needs to do some serious soul searching, maybe take
a look in the mirror, look closer to home.
The primary purpose (though naturally he fails to say so in
his mission statement) of Adachi's website, Educate Yourself, is to demonize
and discredit legitimate persons who are exposing the truth about government-sponsored
criminals and political corruption. The rest (all the New Age nonsense,
metaphysical mumbo-jumbo, etc. etc.) is just window dressing.
GUNDERSON- ADACHI ALLIANCE: A MASTER-SLAVE RELATIONSHIP
Adachi uses character assassination against anyone who has
refused to toe the New Age/NWO party-line. Against anyone who has dared
to call the credentials and legitimacy of his master, Ted L. Gunderson,
into question. And especially against those who have the evidence to support
their allegations of criminal activities.
How about making a nomination for the Patron Saint of Political
Corruption? If there were such a title, I've no doubt Ted L. Gunderson would
be the primary candidate. And win the privilege, hands down, to be canonized
Be that as it may, there's no doubt that the Adachi-Gunderson
alliance is a master-slave relationship. One in which the slave is always
the last to know.
If using this government-duped crackpot (and others like him)
as an "educator" in an attempt to discredit legitimate survivors
of black operations and whistle-blowers is the best they can do, then their
day of reckoning will soon be at hand. The sooner the better, as far as
I am concerned. And I can't cite a more salient example of a "mind-controlled
slave" or "puppet" than Ken Adachi.
GUNDERSON FRONT MAN: ADACHI APPEARS ON THE SCENE
In fact, I had never heard of this buffoon Ken Adachi or his
moronic website until …Lo and Behold! …Adachi came out of the
woodwork in March 2001 (conveniently) only a few months after I had broken
off my professional relationship with Ted Gunderson. I had also made a public
statement about Gunderson for the record, at which time Adachi's libel campaign
against Barbara Hartwell made its debut on Educate Yourself, a directive
issued by none other than Ted L. Gunderson.
In fact, the first of many articles libeling Barbara Hartwell
was written (or dictated to Adachi) by Ted Gunderson himself. (I do know
that Ted Gunderson does not know how to type. All his reports and letters
are handwritten and given to others to transpose. I know this because I've
typed up a few myself, in the days when I was working with Gunderson. I
still have some of the handwritten notes.)
Adachi wrote the preface, "Note from the Editor"
in which the first of Adachi's lies about Barbara Hartwell appeared for
A RESPONSE TO BARBARA HARTWELL?
Gunderson's report was titled, A Response to Barbara Hartwell.
But oddly enough, most of the report had nothing to do with Barbara Hartwell.
Instead, Gunderson's "intelligence report" and "analysis"
was used to take pot shots at a number of other people, including Stew Webb;
Art Bell (who at the time was suing Ted for slandering him as a "child
abuser" on a radio program, but later received an out-of-court settlement);
Kurt Billings; Robert Ghostwolf; Kate Dixon; Debbie Nathan; Mike Ruppert
…and anyone else Gunderson saw fit to target as being allegedly complicit
in what he claimed was an organized, collaborative "smear campaign"
But the fact of the matter is that at the time (March 2001)
I was only acquainted with two (2) of the people on Gunderson's target list,
those being Mike Ruppert and Kurt Billings. There was no connection between
Ruppert and Billings, they didn't know each other. And (perhaps ironically)
I only got to know Stew Webb because I decided to contact him after I read
Gunderson's allegations against him.
What's more, I had not engaged in any "smearing"
of Ted Gunderson and certainly not in connection with any of the people
named in the report. And I know for a fact that Mike Ruppert had not done
so, though he later denounced Gunderson, with good reason, after finding
his name listed among Gunderson's targets in his Response to Barbara Hartwell.
And naturally, Ken Adachi wasted no time in starting one of his smear campaigns
on Educate Yourself, against Mike Ruppert. Which, by the way, has continued
apace, ever since.
As for others named in Gunderson's report (most of whom, to
this day, I don't know) I never saw any evidence, after the fact, that any
of them had "collaborated" as co-conspirators in a smear campaign
against Ted Gunderson.
As for myself (the purported "subject" of Ted's
report) all I had done was give my own public statements in a report about
why I had broken off my association with Gunderson. And those statements
were mild, considering what by then I had learned about some of the criminal
operations and coverups engineered by Ted Gunderson.
I didn't expose most of that until years later. And when I
did (2003, 2004) it got me banned from several radio programs and networks,
including Genesis Communications Network, all being run by Gunderson's fellow
"patriots" and right-wing political cronies.
OPERATION BROWNSTONE, CIA FINDERS &
THE FRANKLIN COVERUP
One of these Gunderson cronies, "patriot" and grandstanding
talk show host, Alex Jones, pulled the plug on me, yanking me off the air
in the middle of Jeremy Floyd 's show, The Floyd Report. Jeremy Floyd actually
quit his job at GCN, on principle, for Jones's and others unconscionable
selective censorship and banning of Barbara Hartwell from the network.
But why was I yanked off the air by Gunderson crony, Alex
Jones? Because I began to elaborate on Gunderson's involvement (along with
former senator John DeCamp) in Operation Brownstone, a child sex-slavery/pornography
network (also connected to CIA Finders) for the purpose of targeting and
blackmailing child-abusers, mostly government officials who were pedophiles.
These scandals were also connected to The Franklin Coverup, a book written
by John DeCamp, who used Gunderson as an investigator on the case.
In truth, The Franklin Coverup (and related child-sex-abuse
enterprises) were a coverup of a coverup, being run by none other than Gunderson
and DeCamp, the very "former" government officials claiming to
be "exposing" these atrocities against children.
In fact, in a personal face-to-face conversation between myself
and Ted Gunderson at his son's home in New Jersey, in November 1999, Gunderson
admitted to me that DeCamp had been INVOLVED in molesting children. This
was only after I had told Gunderson I already knew about it from another
source. I did not reveal the source (and won't, not publicly, as I'm sure
no one would believe me).
Stew Webb has testified that Gunderson (after having a few
drinks) admitted to him, while he was living in Ted's home, that what G.H.W.
Bush holds over his head (blackmail of a sort) is child abuse. A woman named
Arlene Olsen also testified of being sexually abused by Gunderson in 1974
(in connection with a satanic ceremony) when she was 14 yrs old, a time
when Gunderson was still in the FBI. This woman, now 45 years old, went
into hiding, since she says the FBI is looking for her to kill her because
she can testify against Ted Gunderson. Certainly many other such witnesses
have turned up dead, murdered under very suspicious circumstances. Crimes
which have never been solved.
I personally have no information (nor hard evidence) that
Ted Gunderson himself was a child molester, nor had he ever admitted such
a thing to me. But the fact remains that Gunderson's ADMISSION of DeCamp's
complicity in sexual abuse of children is what counts. He tried to make
excuses for DeCamp, claiming that DeCamp had "done a lot of good for
the children" by coming forward and exposing the operation. But Gunderson's
sorry excuse was not good enough for me, not by a long shot. I told Ted
that. I also told him that DeCamp belongs in jail for his crimes, along
with all the other child abusers, and that if he were to continue being
an apologist for child abusers, I could not in good conscience continue
my professional association with him. That was the last I ever saw of Ted
Gunderson and aside from a couple phone conversations after that day, the
last of which was in January, 2000, I never spoke to him again. And that,
as God is my witness, is the truth.
But I was later able to find corroboration from other legitimate
sources for what I already knew, and what Gunderson admitted to me. The
documents also exist to substantiate these facts. (Find them on http://www.stewwebb.com
WEAPONS DEALS WITH OSAMA BIN LADEN
Then, there is the fact that Ted Gunderson had sold Stinger
Missiles to Osama Bin Laden, in 1979, while still working for the FBI. Gunderson
at first denied it, feigning outrage and calling myself and Stew Webb "CIA
disinfo agents" (sound familiar?)
However, shortly thereafter, Gunderson admitted it on a GCN
Radio program called The Intelligence Report, hosted by another of his disinfo
cronies, Larry Lawson. This admission came only after Gunderson learned
that Stew Webb was in possession of DOCUMENTED EVIDENCE of the illegal weapons
deals in Afghanistan. These documents, along with many others, may be viewed
on Stew's website.
Gunderson's excuse for having lied …and for doing the
deal (in conjunction with CIA operative Michael Riconosciuto) with Osama?
He claimed (naturally) that it was necessary to fight the Commie Menace
and stop the Soviet Union from invading Afghanistan.
Well, I guess we've all heard that one before. The Red Menace!
They use it as an all-purpose excuse for any illegal operations they run
(CIA, that is). They used that one to try to justify the MK Ultra operation
— "creating the perfect spy" during the Cold War Era. An
atrocity which NOTHING could possibly justify. And I should know, I was
there, being trained as such a "perfect spy".
I must say, I loathe communism as much as anyone possibly
could. But again, fighting the spread of communism is NOT a justification
for illegal, unconstitutional operations which violate the rights of American
citizens. Or which involve dirty deals, brokering weapons-for-drugs, etc.
with CIA assets who also happen to be foreign despots.
And every well-informed person (including anyone ever involved
in government black ops) knows by now that Osama was (and is) a CIA asset.
Who do they think they're fooling? I give even the general American public
more credit than to buy into this CIA-sponsored horseshit.
So, if Adachi intends to continue with his pre-packaged-shrink-wrapped-government-sponsored
disinformation, lying with impunity about Barbara Hartwell, Stew Webb and
others and our purported "smear campaign" against Ted Gunderson,
he needs to wake up to the fact that too many people have now learned the
That Ken Adachi, Brenda Negri, Tim White, Pam Schuffert, Brice
Taylor (aka Sue Ford) are little more than cogs, spinning within the larger
wheels of the Gunderson Disinfo Machine.
As to who ultimately controls that machine: It's the CIA Psy
Ops boys and their cronies in the White House. All of whom have a lot they
are anxious to cover up …and a lot to lose should the truth come out.
Shame on them all.
And perhaps most important, for the purposes of this report:
That the the allegations being made by targets (Stew Webb, Barbara Hartwell,
Geral Sosbee and others) about Gunderson and/or his minions are based on
facts and substantiated by hard evidence.
YET ANOTHER SLEAZY WHACKJOB, PROMOTED BY KEN ADACHI
And lastly …before this section is wrapped up, one more
thing: The industrious and tireless talent scout, Ken Adachi, is sponsoring
additional libelous comments about Stew Webb by publishing e-mail from yet
another provocateur, a woman by the name of Christina Kanas, who has actually
been stalking Stew Webb and trying to infiltrate his circle of friends.
This woman is bearing false witness not only about Stew Webb,
but also about a Christian minister, a friend of Stew's in the Kansas City
area. This latest whackjob claims to be a "friend" of Stew Webb,
although she is not, nor ever has been. She also falsely claims that both
Stew Webb and the minister, Rev. Fromm, made marriage proposals to her!
Kanas (par for the course) also tries to impugn Webb's sanity, as part of
the overall libel package. Some great new material to enhance the credibility
of Adachi's "educational" website.
Gee whiz, somebody ought to introduce this sleazy character,
Christina Kanas, to Todd Fahey. I'm sure the two of them would really hit
it off, since they have so much in common …stalking, bearing false
witness …and both are running around making sexual advances to people
who find them repulsive …and then lying about their "conquests".
Maybe Adachi himself could do the honors …
Naturally, Adachi seized upon the libelous messages from yet
another nutcase, obviously in the hope he could do even more damage to Stew
Webb's reputation. What kind of bullcrap will Adachi come up with next?
TRANSVESTITE, PREDICATE FELON,
DISINFO DUPE FOR DIVISION 5, DENVER FBI
The time has come to move on and address the truly bizarre
escapades of Tim White, of Denver, Colorado, the aforementioned "talent"
also now being featured by Ken Adachi on Educate Yourself. White, a drag
queen, known (among other epithets) as "The Colorado Cutie" dresses
like a female prostitute. Well, I guess each to his own, after all, it's
not a crime …
However, being in possession of child pornography certainly
IS a crime. After a drug bust, in 2001, police found quite a cache of sex
gadgets and pornographic materials, including videotapes and magazines,
hidden away in a back room of White's residence. Among them was a publication
called J.I.C. which featured child pornography. Children who were also identified,
by numbers, for the purpose of ordering their services as prostitutes!
Absolutely nothing could be more hideous than using innocent
children as tools to cater to the perversions of low-life rapists. In my
opinion, these criminals should get a mandatory sentence of life in prison
for their crimes against children! They can't be "rehabilitated"
and they need to be taken off the streets.
White was never charged for possession of the child pornography,
nor (after he got out of jail on the drug arrest) for many other criminal
activities. White has been on the loose, ever since, running amok in Denver,
committing many crimes with impunity, while the police, the Sheriff's Department
and the Denver FBI have simply looked the other way.
WHACKJOB WHITE'S EDUCATIONAL MESSAGE TO GERAL SOSBEE:
RE CIA BITCH BARBARA HARTWELL
But before I get into further details on the criminal activities
of Tim White (aka White Trash aka The Maggot) let's take a look at an e-mail
sent by Tim White to my friend and professional colleague, ex-FBI agent
August 13, 2004
"Destroy the FBI and CIA huh? Well, I sure would LOVE
for THAT to happen. GOOD LUCK! THEY ARE MY ENEMY. However, YOU have a HUGE
problem in that THEY are BOTH a creation of the JESUITS and the KNIGHTS
of MALTA and very much populated with KNIGHTS of COLUMBUS and MORMON (another
JESUIT creation) faggot TRAITORS, ALL under the TOTAL CONTROL of the BLACK
POPE- Count Peter Hans Kolvenbach, LUCIFERS' right hand. As I said, GOOD
LUCK. IF this is a revelation to you, then I would have to say YOU are very
un-informed indeed and need to re-think on this.
The GOOD news is that this TOTAL CIA BITCH IS GONE- GOOD RIDDANCE!!
She had better NEVER appear AGAIN! Who's the "genius" now?
Tim White, Viet Nam Vet/Concerned Citizen
A Catholic who KNOWS the TRUTH"
Well, how very thoughtful of Tim White to send this "educational"
message to Geral Sosbee. I guess his new status as one of the featured "whistle-blowers"
on Adachi's website, Educate Yourself, gives him the moral and intellectual
imperative to offer tutorials about the real nature of the FBI and CIA to
a bona fide former government agent.
White has been calling Barbara Hartwell "that CIA bitch!"
for years, so that is no surprise. But I do have to wonder at White calling
the members of these various organizations "faggot TRAITORS".
I can only surmise that in White's book, collecting child pornography is
A-OK. Being a transvestite, dressing like a female hooker, that's fine too.
No problem. As long as you don't become a "faggot", everything
is cool …
And since Tim White's "patriotic" activities have
become the stuff of legends (certainly, his reputation will be further enhanced
by his affiliation with the other "patriots" on Adachi's website)
I guess I can understand why he doesn't like "traitors".
But what a coincidence: it just so happens that Adachi's commentary
on Barbara Hartwell names Tim White as the "news source" on the
same date (August 13) of White's message to Sosbee. Along with his pals,
Adachi and Fahey, White gloats over the demise of Hartwell's website, barbarahartwell.com.
This little commentary was taken off the same page (in more
ways than one) on which Todd Fahey's libelous e-mail exchange with Ken Adachi
was posted. I have removed the links, as I don't really feel like advertising
any more libel about Barbara Hartwell. They've already got too many PR folks
working 'round the clock on that project.
KEN ADACHI COMMENTS ON THE DEMISE OF BARBARA HARTWELL.COM
Tim White sent me an e mail that Barbara Hartwell, the most
vicious and slandering CIA disinfo agent on the Internet, has apparently
pulled her web site and all of its mendacious, venom filled odorous content.
But fear not, Hartwell fans, we've downloaded her web site in its entirety
and will recount her catalog of outrageous fabrications flung at real American
patriots like Ted Gunderson and Fritz Springmeier in great detail when I
attend to her story-which is long overdue. It's hard to say whether the
Crimson Viper has decided to get out of Dodge permanently or maybe she just
couldn't pay the server. Another possibility is the UK server which hosted
her may have been paid for by a duped fan (or the CIA) and that person decided
to stop supporting her. I don't know, but I do know that she's an expert
at crying poor, hitting on innocent readers to support her and will then
turn around to savagely attack them if they dare express a word of concern
about Hartwell's unconscionable attacks on people like Don Stacey. Hartwell
is a piece of work whose lies have served to damage the reputations of many
innocent American patriots over the Internet . Her boat load of lies, however,
are not going to be forgotten by this writer. Her web site may have disappeared
from the Internet, but her name and her LIES will be scrutinized and exposed
for a long time to come at this web site. You can take that to the bank.
Send flowers and Sympathy cards to CIA headquarters at Langley,
Virginia. They will understand.
[BH: Great job, Adachi! Somebody give the parrot a cracker!
Wait …make that a whole package! He's earned it.]
TIM WHITE REDUX: SOME BACKGROUND INFO
I wish I could just jump right in by addressing the latest
news on Tim White. However, first you'll need some background. I've certainly
covered his criminal activities and bizarre antics extensively in numerous
other reports, which are all available in the archives of my website.
For the most comprehensive of such reports, see, A True (But
Stranger-than-Fiction) Crime Case: The Cross-Dressing Conspiracy Theorist,
in the Barbara Hartwell Archives on Geral Sosbee's website:
But for those who haven't yet heard of the notorious Mr. White,
here's a little recap.
Timothy Patrick White has been a low-level "snitch"
and provocateur on the payroll of Division Five of the Denver FBI, since
he made a deal with the feds for a get-out-of-jail-free card, sometime in
2002. White was arrested in August 2001 (and later convicted) on a felony
charge for drugs.
Before his arrest, while living in the warehouse he called
home, White, the "Concerned Citizen" as he bills himself, was
hosting "patriot" meetings for some local folks in the Denver
area who were concerned about corruption, coverups (and even treasonous
activities) within the U.S. Government.
Since I know several of the people who had attended those
meetings, I can say that at least some of them were legitimate and sincere.
Perhaps even Tim White was at one time a sincere patriot. I can't say with
certainty that he wasn't. I only know that since the time he came to my
attention (by targeting me for his fed crime bosses) in August 2001, I have
not seen any evidence of such "patriotism". Quite the contrary.
I had never heard of Tim White until mid-August 2001, when
he attempted to contact me via a conduit, one of his "associates",
a retired career military man named Daryl Sturgis (also part of Operation
Phoenix, under the command of General John K. Singlaub, in Vietnam) who
was using the pseudonym "Tim Hall".
White's purpose in contacting me was to "warn" me
of a "death threat" which he claimed had been made by another
man I did not know: Jeff Swedenburg, also a Colorado resident. White claimed
that Swedenburg was a "CIA assassin", an allegation I had also
heard from another pair of provocateurs, Kurt and Lee Ann Billings, several
But to make a (very) long story as short as possible (please
read my series of reports on the Denver Connection if you'd like to know
more) the death threat was entirely bogus, which I found out by doing my
own investigation, including of Swedenburg himself.
I made the first contact with Jeff Swedenburg by e-mail in
early September 2001, and first met him in person in January 2002. I have
considered him a good friend ever since. He even served as my bodyguard
on a trip across the country in the summer of 2002. Because as I learned,
Swedenburg was another target of the bad guys (just like me, just like Stew
Webb) NOT a "CIA assassin" as claimed by Tim White.
But back to Tim White: White has been harassing me since the
day he made his deal with the feds and got out of jail in early 2002. That
is, when he found out that I had not fallen into the trap his criminal fed
overlords had set for me.
It did not surprise me to learn that White was also very much
involved with Ted Gunderson, though it took me awhile to connect all the
dots; locate the various players (both professional and amateur) and understand
why White had targeted me. Same reason that Adachi targeted me: being a
Gunderson minion, used in the COINTELPRO-style operation to harass, demonize
and discredit legitimate whistle-blowers and sincere patriots like myself.
But just so the picture becomes clear, I'll name some of White's
other targets. Persons he has targeted for one or more (in some cases all)
of the following privacy/security violations and criminal activities: Harassed
by phone; slandered and libeled; attempted to extort for large sums of money;
made death threats against; engaged in stalking and/or criminal harassment
Targets of Tim White: Barbara Hartwell; Stew Webb; Jeff Swedenburg;
Geral Sosbee; Al Martin; Doreen Bishop. Just a partial list, but close enough
for government work …
Doreen Bishop had been granted a restraining order against
Tim White by the summer of 2002, because White had been stalking her at
her home in the Denver area; as well as making death threats against Bishop.
She was also a witness to White's death threats against others, including
Barbara Hartwell; Stew Webb and Al Martin.
ALL POINTS BULLETIN! WANTED, TIM WHITE:
ARMED AND DANGEROUS?
Which brings me to the latest news of Tim White. As you might
imagine, I'm getting a little tired by now (especially of Tim White) and
this report is getting a little too long, so I'll wrap it up as quickly
There is now a warrant out for Tim White's arrest. As I learned
in recent phone conversations with Doreen Bishop and Stew Webb, Tim White
had continued to violate the restraining order by stalking and harassing
Doreen. And this, folks, is almost three (3) years after the restraining
order was granted! But alas, the plot thickened when White made the very
foolish mistake of making a death threat by phone to a female police officer
who had been trying to apprehend him on the stalking violations.
Last we heard, inside sources report that Tim White has gone
on the lam, and is believed to be hiding out in the Red Light District of
Denver, dressed as a woman, in hopes of eluding law enforcement and avoiding
yet another arrest.
For all we know, he's armed and dangerous, though, as a convicted
and predicate felon, he's not supposed to be carrying a firearm. But I don't
think there's cause for alarm: It's more likely he is armed only with a
tube of bright red lipstick, sharpened to a vicious point; or perhaps, one
of the plastic dildos neighbors had reported hanging from a clothesline
in the backyard of White's garage apartment, rented to him dirt-cheap by
his landladies, a lesbian couple, pillars of the gay community in Denver.
I can only say: Stay tuned! Be sure to keep reading Educate
Yourself for the latest updates on all those glorious Patriots and Defenders
of the Constitution, Tim White, Todd Fahey, Ted Gunderson — and let's
not forget Ken Adachi himself — those Fearless Freedom Fighters, ever
vigilant in the cause of Liberty and Justice for All, in the Land of the
Free and the Home of the Brave.

Codename: Black Angel
DELIVERED FROM THE CIA BY THE GRACE OF GOD
In 1994, I broke out of CIA Black Operations, having been
utilized at various times as an intelligence operative under Non-Official
Cover (NOC) and as a professional CIA asset over a period of twenty-five
(25) years of my adult life, between 1969-1994. I was recruited into CIA
black programs in early childhood without my informed consent.
Because much of my training occurred under the CIA's infamous
MK Ultra operation (in attempts to "create the perfect spy" during
the cold war era) much of my memory throughout my life has been 'wiped'
through hypnotic controls, the use of drugs and psychotronic antipersonnel
technology (Electronic Dissolution of Memory). To many people, such projects
being run by CIA seem more like science fiction than real government operations
and thus my claims may stretch credibility to the breaking point. But speaking
for myself, I know how real such operations are. I was there, I speak from
many years of firsthand experience and I have lived — every day of
my life — to deeply regret the covert operations I was drawn into
against my will; and the grievous injustices which were perpetrated upon
me and other members of my family by this organized criminal network known
as the Central Intelligence Agency.
I was delivered from these operations only by the Grace of
God, after many years of prayer and battling the forces of darkness —
including as personified in my CIA handlers — in spiritual warfare
and at times, what amounted to guerilla warfare.
It is to God's Glory, through the redeeming love of Jesus
Christ, that I dedicate this website. Thank You Jesus! I have to thank my
dearest friends, those heavenly angels, as well — who lit the path
to show me the way out and who saved my life through Divine Intervention
more times than I can count. Created by God before the Foundation of the
World, angels serve as God's messengers, guardians and warriors. Some may
not believe in the existence of angels, but I know beyond any doubt how
very real they are, as I have been blessed to have them with me from earliest
All battles for Liberty are ultimately part of a vast, timeless
spiritual war — a war for the salvation of souls — ongoing for
millenia. There is no true liberty but that which comes from the spirit.
As these battles are waged today here on earth, they are but a pale reflection
of what could be termed the Angelic Wars — Angels of God under the
command of Jesus Christ versus Satan and his fallen angels whose purpose
is to enslave humanity. All who would enslave others are themselves enslaved,
though they fail to see this truth. There can be no freedom but that bestowed
on each individual by God.
In this war for hearts, minds and souls, the Central Intelligence
Agency has been on the wrong side, the dark side, since Day One when the
spy agency was formed in 1947 from its precursor, the Office of Strategic
Services (OSS) and staffed with Nazi scientists brought to the United States
of America under the auspices of an operation codenamed Paperclip. These
Nazi scientists and S.S. officers — some of whom formed the original
core of the CIA — brought with them the atrocities perpetrated during
Hitler's Third Reich, in the death camps and beyond, including the use of
human subjects in genetic engineering experiments, known as "eugenics";
the practice of nefarious occultism; horrific psychiatric abuses for purposes
of behavior modification, brainwashing and various forms of mind control.
These and many other human rights violations can only be described as Crimes
against God as the perpetrators attempt to usurp the power of God for an
As an elite 'enforcement' arm of the Olympic Cartel (otherwise
known as Illuminati) the CIA has continued its satanic Nazi legacy by waging
its crusade for control of the world, its societies and its resources, run
under the cloak of "intelligence gathering" and brandishing the
dagger of National Security .
The CIA has been wreaking havoc; instigating mayhem; fomenting
the overthrow of governments; installing puppet governments and making enemies
for the U.S. of A. around the globe since its inception. Among their 'black
budget' projects they are involved in what I would call illegal domestic
covert operations. As for their their primary Weapons of Mass Destruction,
these include Psychological Operations (such as mind control and media propaganda
campaigns) and State-sponsored Terrorism.
There are those who have been inside but remain deceived;
most have lived their lives outside but remain naive. For all who are seeking
the truth about some of the darkest secrets of the Central Intelligence
Agency, I present on this website but a small portion of what, during a
time span of of more than half a century, I have come to know.
It is my hope that those who are still in thrall to this deadly
cabal will see the light; that they will turn to God; will repent of their
grievous transgressions against humankind and sins against God and get on
the Side of the Angels, while there is yet time.

A TIMELINE OF CIA ATROCITIES
In 2002, I happened upon an old article titled A Timeline
of CIA Atrocities, written by investigative journalist Steve Kangas. This
article had apparently fallen into obscurity and been relegated to the proverbial
dust bin. It certainly had not received the attention it deserved. I edited
the article, only for paragraph structure, without changing a word of the
text. I also placed the dates and events of the timeline in bold headings
for easy reference. This was necessary, in my editorial opinion, to enhance
clarity and for ease of reading.
I posted this article on a few websites, including my own.
Subsequently, over the next two years, I was glad to see that this article
had been picked up by sites all over the World Wide Web. It is an important
piece: comprehensive, well-researched and written by a man who knew what
he was talking about. As a general overview on the CIA, it is one of the
best and most accurate I've ever come across.
The author, Steve Kangas, died under mysterious and suspicious
circumstances, not unusual for anyone investigating and exposing the criminal
activities of CIA. The crime (murder) was never solved. If you don't have
time to do much of your own research but want to get a handle on what type
of activities (atrocities) the CIA is really involved in, you owe it to
yourself to read this article.
A Timeline of CIA Atrocities
by Steve Kangas
The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds
of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA.
CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American
business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically
elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct
land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned
industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment.
So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help,
the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups
within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll
put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us."
The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing
government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda,
stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual
intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration
and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture
intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination.
These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs
a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator's security apparatus
to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation,
torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but
almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders,
political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread
human rights abuses follow.
This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA
actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious "School of the
Americas." (It opened in Panama but later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia.)
Critics have nicknamed it the "School of the Dictators" and "School
of the Assassins." Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers
how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.
The Association for Responsible Dissent estimates that by
1987, 6 million people had died as a result of CIA covert operations. (2)
Former State Department official William Blum correctly calls this an "American
Holocaust." The CIA justifies these actions as part of its war against
communism. But most coups do not involve a communist threat. Unlucky nations
are targeted for a wide variety of reasons: not only threats to American
business interests abroad, but also liberal or even moderate social reforms,
political instability, the unwillingness of a leader to carry out Washington's
dictates, and declarations of neutrality in the Cold War. Indeed, nothing
has infuriated CIA Directors quite like a nation's desire to stay out of
the Cold War.
The ironic thing about all this intervention is that it frequently
fails to achieve American objectives. Often the newly installed dictator
grows comfortable with the security apparatus the CIA has built for him.
He becomes an expert at running a police state. And because the dictator
knows he cannot be overthrown, he becomes independent and defiant of Washington's
will. The CIA then finds it cannot overthrow him, because the police and
military are under the dictator's control, afraid to cooperate with American
spies for fear of torture and execution.
The only two options for the U.S at this point are impotence
or war. Examples of this "boomerang effect" include the Shah of
Iran, General Noriega and Saddam Hussein. The boomerang effect also explains
why the CIA has proven highly successful at overthrowing democracies, but
a wretched failure at overthrowing dictatorships.
The following timeline should confirm that the CIA as we know
it should be abolished and replaced by a true information-gathering and
analysis organization. The CIA cannot be reformed — it is institutionally
and culturally corrupt.
1929: The culture we lost - Secretary of State Henry Stimson
refuses to endorse a code-breaking operation, saying, "Gentlemen do
not read each other's mail."
1941: COI created - In preparation for World War II, President
Roosevelt creates the Office of Coordinator of Information (COI). General
William "Wild Bill" Donovan heads the new intelligence service.
1942: OSS created - Roosevelt restructures COI into something
more suitable for covert action, the Office of Strategic Services (OSS).
Donovan recruits so many of the nation's rich and powerful that eventually
people joke that "OSS" stands for "Oh, so social!" or
"Oh, such snobs!"
1943: Italy - Donovan recruits the Catholic Church in Rome
to be the center of Anglo-American spy operations in Fascist Italy. This
would prove to be one of America's most enduring intelligence alliances
in the Cold War.
1945: OSS is abolished - The remaining American information
agencies cease covert actions and return to harmless information gathering
Operation PAPERCLIP - While other American agencies are hunting
down Nazi war criminals for arrest, the U.S. intelligence community is smuggling
them into America, unpunished, for their use against the Soviets. The most
important of these is Reinhard Gehlen, Hitler's master spy who had built
up an intelligence network in the Soviet Union. With full U.S. blessing,
he creates the "Gehlen Organization," a band of refugee Nazi spies
who reactivate their networks in Russia. These include SS intelligence officers
Alfred Six and Emil Augsburg (who massacred Jews in the Holocaust), Klaus
Barbie (the "Butcher of Lyon"), Otto von Bolschwing (the Holocaust
mastermind who worked with Eichmann) . The Gehlen Organization supplies
the U.S. with its only intelligence on the Soviet Union for the next ten
years, serving as a bridge between the abolishment of the OSS and the creation
of the CIA. However, much of the "intelligence" the former Nazis
provide is bogus.
Gehlen inflates Soviet military capabilities at a time when
Russia is still rebuilding its devastated society, in order to inflate his
own importance to the Americans (who might otherwise punish him). In 1948,
Gehlen almost convinces the Americans that war is imminent, and the West
should make a preemptive strike. In the 50s he produces a fictitious "missile
gap." To make matters worse, the Russians have thoroughly penetrated
the Gehlen Organization with double agents, undermining the very American
security that Gehlen was supposed to protect.
1947: Greece - President Truman requests military aid to Greece
to support right-wing forces fighting communist rebels. For the rest of
the Cold War, Washington and the CIA will back notorious Greek leaders with
deplorable human rights records.
CIA created - President Truman signs the National Security
Act of 1947, creating the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security
Council. The CIA is accountable to the president through the NSC -there
is no democratic or congressional oversight. Its charter allows the CIA
to "perform such other functions and duties. as the National Security
Council may from time to time direct." This loophole opens the door
to covert action and dirty tricks.
1948: Covert-action wing created - The CIA recreates a covert
action wing, innocuously called the Office of Policy Coordination, led by
Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner. According to its secret charter, its responsibilities
include "propaganda, economic warfare, preventive direct action, including
sabotage, antisabotage, demolition and evacuation procedures; subversion
against hostile states, including assistance to underground resistance groups,
and support of indigenous anti-communist elements in threatened countries
of the free world."
Italy - The CIA corrupts democratic elections in Italy, where
Italian communists threaten to win the elections. The CIA buys votes, broadcasts
propaganda, threatens and beats up opposition leaders, and infiltrates and
disrupts their organizations. It works — the communists are defeated.
1949: Radio Free Europe - The CIA creates its first major
propaganda outlet, Radio Free Europe. Over the next several decades, its
broadcasts are so blatantly false that for a time it is considered illegal
to publish transcripts of them in the U.S.
Late 40s Operation MOCKINGBIRD - The CIA begins recruiting
American news organizations and journalists to become spies and disseminators
of propaganda. The effort is headed by Frank Wisner, Allan Dulles, Richard
Helms and Philip Graham. Graham is publisher of The Washington Post, which
becomes a major CIA player. Eventually, the CIA's media assets will include
ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International,
Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service and more.
By the CIA's own admission, at least 25 organizations and 400 journalists
will become CIA assets.
1953 Iran - CIA overthrows the democratically elected Mohammed
Mossadegh in a military coup, after he threatened to nationalize British
oil. The CIA replaces him with a dictator, the Shah of Iran, whose secret
police, SAVAK, is as brutal as the Gestapo.
Operation MK-ULTRA - Inspired by North Korea's brainwashing
program, the CIA begins experiments on mind control. The most notorious
part of this project involves giving LSD and other drugs to American subjects
without their knowledge or against their will, causing several to commit
suicide. However, the operation involves far more than this. Funded in part
by the Rockefeller and Ford foundations, research includes propaganda, brainwashing,
public relations, advertising, hypnosis, and other forms of suggestion.
1954 Guatemala - CIA overthrows the democratically elected
Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the
Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Dulles
also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators
whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next
1954-1958 North Vietnam - CIA officer Edward Lansdale spends
four years trying to overthrow the communist government of North Vietnam,
using all the usual dirty tricks. The CIA also attempts to legitimize a
tyrannical puppet regime in South Vietnam, headed by Ngo Dinh Diem. These
efforts fail to win the hearts and minds of the South Vietnamese because
the Diem government is opposed to true democracy, land reform and poverty
reduction measures. The CIA's continuing failure results in escalating American
intervention, culminating in the VietnamWar.
1956 Hungary - Radio Free Europe incites Hungary to revolt
by broadcasting Khruschev's Secret Speech, in which he denounced Stalin.
It also hints that American aid will help the Hungarians fight. This aid
fails to materialize as Hungarians launch a doomed armed revolt, which only
invites a major Soviet invasion. The conflict kills 7,000 Soviets and 30,000
1957-1973 Laos - The CIA carries out approximately one coup
per year trying to nullify Laos' democratic elections. The problem is the
Pathet Lao, a leftist group with enough popular support to be a member of
any coalition government. In the late 50s, the CIA even creates an "Armee
Clandestine" of Asian mercenaries to attack the Pathet Lao. After the
CIA's army suffers numerous defeats, the U.S. starts bombing, dropping more
bombs on Laos than all the U.S. bombs dropped in World War II. A quarter
of all Laotians will eventually become refugees, many living in caves.
1959 Haiti - The U.S. military helps "Papa Doc"
Duvalier become dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force,
the "Tonton Macoutes," who terrorize the population with machetes.
They will kill over 100,000 during the Duvalier family reign. The U.S. does
not protest their dismal human rights record.
1961 The Bay of Pigs - The CIA sends 1,500 Cuban exiles to
invade Castro's Cuba. But "Operation Mongoose" fails, due to poor
planning, security and backing. The planners had imagined that the invasion
will spark a popular uprising against Castro — which never happens.
A promised American air strike also never occurs. This is the CIA's first
public setback, causing President Kennedy to fire CIA Director Allen Dulles.
Dominican Republic - The CIA assassinates Rafael Trujillo,
a murderous dictator Washington has supported since 1930. Trujillo's business
interests have grown so large (about 60 percent of the economy) that they
have begun competing with American business interests.
Ecuador - The CIA-backed military forces the democratically
elected President Jose Velasco to resign. Vice President Carlos Arosemana
replaces him; the CIA fills the now vacant vice presidency with its own
Congo (Zaire) - The CIA assassinates the democratically elected
Patrice Lumumba. However, public support for Lumumba's politics runs so
high that the CIA cannot clearly install his opponents in power. Four years
of political turmoil follow.
1963 Dominican Republic - The CIA overthrows the democratically
elected Juan Bosch in a military coup. The CIA installs a repressive, right-wing
Ecuador - A CIA-backed military coup overthrows President
Arosemana, whose independent (not socialist) policies have become unacceptable
to Washington. A military junta assumes command, cancels the 1964 elections,
and begins abusing human rights.
1964 Brazil - A CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically
elected government of Joao Goulart. The junta that replaces it will, in
the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General
Castelo Branco will create Latin America's first death squads, or bands
of secret police who hunt down "communists" for torture, interrogation
and murder. Often these "communists" are no more than Branco's
political opponents. Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death
1965 Indonesia - The CIA overthrows the democratically elected
Sukarno with a military coup. The CIA has been trying to eliminate Sukarno
since 1957, using everything from attempted assassination to sexual intrigue,
for nothing more than his declaring neutrality in the Cold War. His successor,
General Suharto, will massacre between 500,000 to 1 million civilians accused
of being "communist." The CIA supplies the names of countless
Dominican Republic - A popular rebellion breaks out, promising
to reinstall Juan Bosch as the country's elected leader. The revolution
is crushed when U.S. Marines land to uphold the military regime by force.
The CIA directs everything behind the scenes.
Greece - With the CIA's backing, the king removes George Papandreous
as prime minister. Papandreous has failed to vigorously support U.S. interests
Congo (Zaire) - A CIA-backed military coup installs Mobutu
Sese Seko as dictator. The hated and repressive Mobutu exploits his desperately
poor country for billions.
1966 The Ramparts Affair - The radical magazine Ramparts begins
a series of unprecedented anti-CIA articles. Among their scoops: the CIA
has paid the University of Michigan $25 million dollars to hire "professors"
to train South Vietnamese students in covert police methods. MIT and other
universities have received similar payments. Ramparts also reveals that
the National Students' Association is a CIA front. Students are sometimes
recruited through blackmail and bribery, including draft deferments.
1967 Greece - A CIA-backed military coup overthrows the government
two days before the elections. The favorite to win was George Papandreous,
the liberal candidate. During the next six years, the "reign of the
colonels" - backed by the CIA - will usher in the widespread use of
torture and murder against political opponents. When a Greek ambassador
objects to President Johnson about U.S. plans for Cypress, Johnson tells
him: "Fuck your parliament and your constitution."
Operation PHEONIX - The CIA helps South Vietnamese agents
identify and then murder alleged Viet Cong leaders operating in South Vietnamese
villages. According to a 1971 congressional report, this operation killed
about 20,000 "Viet Cong."
1968 Operation CHAOS - The CIA has been illegally spying on
American citizens since 1959, but with Operation CHAOS, President Johnson
dramatically boosts the effort. CIA agents go undercover as student radicals
to spy on and disrupt campus organizations protesting the Vietnam War. They
are searching for Russian instigators, which they never find. CHAOS will
eventually spy on 7,000 individuals and 1,000 organizations.
Bolivia - A CIA-organized military operation captures legendary
guerilla Che Guevara. The CIA wants to keep him alive for interrogation,
but the Bolivian government executes him to prevent worldwide calls for
1969 Uruguay - The notorious CIA torturer Dan Mitrione arrives
in Uruguay, a country torn with political strife. Whereas right-wing forces
previously used torture only as a last resort, Mitrione convinces them to
use it as a routine, widespread practice. "The precise pain, in the
precise place, in the precise amount, for the desired effect," is his
motto. The torture techniques he teaches to the death squads rival the Nazis'.
He eventually becomes so feared that revolutionaries will kidnap and murder
him a year later.
1970 Cambodia - The CIA overthrows Prince Sahounek, who is
highly popular among Cambodians for keeping them out of the Vietnam War.
He is replaced by CIA puppet Lon Nol, who immediately throws Cambodian troops
into battle. This unpopular move strengthens once minor opposition parties
like the Khmer Rouge, which achieves power in 1975 and massacres millions
of its own people.
1971 Bolivia - After half a decade of CIA-inspired political
turmoil, a CIA-backed military coup overthrows the leftist President Juan
Torres. In the next two years, dictator Hugo Banzer will have over 2,000
political opponents arrested without trial, then tortured, raped and executed.
Haiti - "Papa Doc" Duvalier dies, leaving his 19-year
old son "Baby Doc" Duvalier the dictator of Haiti. His son continues
his bloody reign with full knowledge of the CIA.
1972 The Case-Zablocki Act - Congress passes an act requiring
congressional review of executive agreements. In theory, this should make
CIA operations more accountable. In fact, it is only marginally effective.
Cambodia - Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret
war in Cambodia.
Watergate Break-in - President Nixon sends in a team of burglars
to wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate. The team members have extensive
CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt and five of the Cuban
burglars. They work for the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP),
which does dirty work like disrupting Democratic campaigns and laundering
Nixon's illegal campaign contributions. CREEP's activities are funded and
organized by another CIA front, the Mullen Company.
1973 Chile - The CIA overthrows and assassinates Salvador
Allende, Latin America's first democratically elected socialist leader.
The problems begin when Allende nationalizes American-owned firms in Chile.
ITT offers the CIA $1 million for a coup (reportedly refused). The CIA replaces
Allende with General Augusto Pinochet, who will torture and murder thousands
of his own countrymen in a crackdown on labor leaders and the political
CIA begins internal investigations - William Colby, the Deputy
Director for Operations, orders all CIA personnel to report any and all
illegal activities they know about. This information is later reported to
Watergate Scandal - The CIA's main collaborating newspaper
in America, The Washington Post, reports Nixon's crimes long before any
other newspaper take up the subject. The two reporters, Woodward and Bernstein,
make almost no mention of the CIA's many fingerprints all over the scandal.
It is later revealed that Woodward was a Naval intelligence briefer to the
White House, and knows many important intelligence figures, including General
Alexander Haig. His main source, "Deep Throat," is probably one
CIA Director Helms Fired - President Nixon fires CIA Director
Richard Helms for failing to help cover up the Watergate scandal. Helms
and Nixon have always disliked each other. The new CIA director is William
Colby, who is relatively more open to CIA reform.
1974 CHAOS exposed - Pulitzer prize winning journalist Seymour
Hersh publishes a story about Operation CHAOS, the domestic surveillance
and infiltration of anti-war and civil rights groups in the U.S. The story
sparks national outrage.
Angleton fired - Congress holds hearings on the illegal domestic
spying efforts of James Jesus Angleton, the CIA's chief of counterintelligence.
His efforts included mail-opening campaigns and secret surveillance of war
protesters. The hearings result in his dismissal from the CIA.
House clears CIA in Watergate - The House of Representatives
clears the CIA of any complicity in Nixon's Watergate break-in.
The Hughes Ryan Act - Congress passes an amendment requiring
the president to report nonintelligence CIA operations to the relevant congressional
committees in a timely fashion.
1975 Australia - The CIA helps topple the democratically elected,
left-leaning government of Prime Minister Edward Whitlam. The CIA does this
by giving an ultimatum to its Governor-General, John Kerr. Kerr, a longtime
CIA collaborator, exercises his constitutional right to dissolve the Whitlam
government. The Governor-General is a largely ceremonial position appointed
by the Queen; the Prime Minister is democratically elected. The use of this
archaic and never-used law stuns the nation.
Angola - Eager to demonstrate American military resolve after
its defeat in Vietnam, Henry Kissinger launches a CIA-backed war in Angola.
Contrary to Kissinger's assertions, Angola is a country of little strategic
importance and not seriously threatened by communism. The CIA backs the
brutal leader of UNITAS, Jonas Savimbi. This polarizes Angolan politics
and drives his opponents into the arms of Cuba and the Soviet Union for
survival. Congress will cut off funds in 1976, but the CIA is able to run
the war off the books until 1984, when funding is legalized again. This
entirely pointless war kills over 300,000 Angolans. "The CIA and the
Cult of Intelligence" - Victor Marchetti and John Marks publish this
whistle-blowing history of CIA crimes and abuses. Marchetti has spent 14
years in the CIA, eventually becoming an executive assistant to the Deputy
Director of Intelligence. Marks has spent five years as an intelligence
official in the State Department. "Inside the Company" - Philip
Agee publishes a diary of his life inside the CIA. Agee has worked in covert
operations in Latin America during the 60s, and details the crimes in which
he took part.
Congress investigates CIA wrong-doing - Public outrage compels
Congress to hold hearings on CIA crimes. Senator Frank Church heads the
Senate investigation ("The Church Committee"), and Representative
Otis Pike heads the House investigation. (Despite a 98 percent incumbency
reelection rate, both Church and Pike are defeated in the next elections.)
The investigations lead to a number of reforms intended to increase the
CIA's accountability to Congress, including the creation of a standing Senate
committee on intelligence. However, the reforms prove ineffective, as the
Iran/Contra scandal will show. It turns out the CIA can control, deal with
or sidestep Congress with ease.
The Rockefeller Commission - In an attempt to reduce the damage
done by the Church Committee, President Ford creates the "Rockefeller
Commission" to whitewash CIA history and propose toothless reforms.
The commission's namesake, Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, is himself
a major CIA figure. Five of the commission's eight members are also members
of the Council on Foreign Relations, a CIA-dominated organization.
1979 Iran - The CIA fails to predict the fall of the Shah
of Iran, a longtime CIA puppet, and the rise of Muslim fundamentalists who
are furious at the CIA's backing of SAVAK, the Shah's bloodthirsty secret
police. In revenge, the Muslims take 52 Americans hostage in the U.S. embassy
Afghanistan - The Soviets enters in Afghanistan. The CIA immediately
begins supplying arms to any faction willing to fight the Soviets. Such
indiscriminate arming means that when the Soviets leave Afghanistan, civil
war will erupt. Also, fanatical Muslim extremists now possess state-of-the-art
weaponry. One of these is Sheik Abdel Rahman, who will become involved in
the World Trade Center bombing in New York.
El Salvador - An idealistic group of young military officers,
repulsed by the massacre of the poor, overthrows the right-wing government.
However, the U.S. compels the inexperienced officers to include many of
the old guard in key positions in their new government. Soon, things are
back to "normal" - the military government is repressing and killing
poor civilian protesters. Many of the young military and civilian reformers,
finding themselves powerless, resign in disgust.
Nicaragua - Anastasios Samoza II, the CIA-backed dictator,
falls. The Marxist Sandinistas take over government, and they are initially
popular because of their commitment to land and anti-poverty reform. Samoza
had a murderous and hated personal army called the National Guard. Remnants
of the Guard will become the Contras, who fight a CIA-backed guerilla war
against the Sandinista government throughout the 1980s.
1980 El Salvador - The Archbishop of San Salvador, Oscar Romero,
pleads with President Carter "Christian to Christian" to stop
aiding the military government slaughtering his people. Carter refuses.
Shortly afterwards, right-wing leader Roberto D'Aubuisson has Romero shot
through the heart while saying Mass. The country soon dissolves into civil
war, with the peasants in the hills fighting against the military government.
The CIA and U.S. Armed Forces supply the government with overwhelming military
and intelligence superiority. CIA-trained death squads roam the countryside,
committing atrocities like that of El Mazote in 1982, where they massacre
between 700 and 1000 men, women and children. By 1992, some 63,000 Salvadorans
will be killed.
1981 Iran/Contra Begins - The CIA begins selling arms to Iran
at high prices, using the profits to arm the Contras fighting the Sandinista
government in Nicaragua. President Reagan vows that the Sandinistas will
be "pressured" until "they say 'uncle.'" The CIA's Freedom
Fighter's Manual disbursed to the Contras includes instruction on economic
sabotage, propaganda, extortion, bribery, blackmail, interrogation, torture,
murder and political assassination.
1983 Honduras - The CIA gives Honduran military officers the
Human Resource Exploitation Training Manual - 1983, which teaches how to
torture people. Honduras' notorious "Battalion 316" then uses
these techniques, with the CIA's full knowledge, on thousands of leftist
dissidents. At least 184 are murdered.
1984 The Boland Amendment - The last of a series of Boland
Amendments is passed. These amendments have reduced CIA aid to the Contras;
the last one cuts it off completely. However, CIA Director William Casey
is already prepared to "hand off" the operation to Colonel Oliver
North, who illegally continues supplying the Contras through the CIA's informal,
secret, and self-financing network. This includes "humanitarian aid"
donated by Adolph Coors and William Simon, and military aid funded by Iranian
1986 Eugene Hasenfus - Nicaragua shoots down a C-123 transport
plane carrying military supplies to the Contras. The lone survivor, Eugene
Hasenfus, turns out to be a CIA employee, as are the two dead pilots. The
airplane belongs to Southern Air Transport, a CIA front. The incident makes
a mockery of President Reagan's claims that the CIA is not illegally arming
Iran/Contra Scandal - Although the details have long been
known, the Iran/Contra scandal finally captures the media's attention in
1986. Congress holds hearings, and several key figures (like Oliver North)
lie under oath to protect the intelligence community. CIA Director William
Casey dies of brain cancer before Congress can question him. All reforms
enacted by Congress after the scandal are purely cosmetic.
Haiti - Rising popular revolt in Haiti means that "Baby
Doc" Duvalier will remain "President for Life" only if he
has a short one. The U.S., which hates instability in a puppet country,
flies the despotic Duvalier to the South of France for a comfortable retirement.
The CIA then rigs the upcoming elections in favor of another right-wing
military strongman. However, violence keeps the country in political turmoil
for another four years. The CIA tries to strengthen the military by creating
the National Intelligence Service (SIN), which suppresses popular revolt
through torture and assassination.
1989 Panama - The U.S. invades Panama to overthrow a dictator
of its own making, General Manuel Noriega. Noriega has been on the CIA's
payroll since 1966, and has been transporting drugs with the CIA's knowledge
since 1972. By the late 80s, Noriega's growing independence and intransigence
have angered Washington. so out he goes.
1990 Haiti - Competing against 10 comparatively wealthy candidates,
leftist priest Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68 percent of the vote. After
only eight months in power, however, the CIA-backed military deposes him.
More military dictators brutalize the country, as thousands of Haitian refugees
escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats. As popular opinion calls for
Aristide's return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the
courageous priest as mentally unstable.
1991 The Fall of the Soviet Union - The CIA fails to predict
this most important event of the Cold War. This suggests that it has been
so busy undermining governments that it hasn't been doing its primary job:
gathering and analyzing information. The fall of the Soviet Union also robs
the CIA of its reason for existence: fighting communism. This leads some
to accuse the CIA of intentionally failing to predict the downfall of the
Soviet Union. Curiously, the intelligence community's budget is not significantly
reduced after the demise of communism.
1992 Economic Espionage - In the years following the end of
the Cold War, the CIA is increasingly used for economic espionage. This
involves stealing the technological secrets of competing foreign companies
and giving them to American ones. Given the CIA's clear preference for dirty
tricks over mere information gathering, the possibility of serious criminal
behavior is very great indeed.
1993 Haiti - The chaos in Haiti grows so bad that President
Clinton has no choice but to remove the Haitian military dictator, Raoul
Cedras, on threat of U.S. invasion. The U.S. occupiers do not arrest Haiti's
military leaders for crimes against humanity, but instead ensure their safety
and rich retirements. Aristide is returned to power only after being forced
to accept an agenda favorable to the country's ruling class.
In a speech before the CIA celebrating its 50th anniversary,
President Clinton said: "By necessity, the American people will never
know the full story of your courage." Clinton's is a common defense
of the CIA: namely, the American people should stop criticizing the CIA
because they don't know what it really does. This, of course, is the heart
of the problem in the first place. An agency that is above criticism is
also above moral behavior and reform. Its secrecy and lack of accountability
allows its corruption to grow unchecked. Furthermore, Clinton's statement
is simply untrue. The history of the agency is growing painfully clear,
especially with the declassification of historical CIA documents. We may
not know the details of specific operations, but we do know, quite well,
the general behavior of the CIA. These facts began emerging nearly two decades
ago at an ever-quickening pace. Today we have a remarkably accurate and
consistent picture, repeated in country after country, and verified from
countless different directions.
The CIA's response to this growing knowledge and criticism
follows a typical historical pattern. (Indeed, there are remarkable parallels
to the Medieval Church's fight against the Scientific Revolution.) The first
journalists and writers to reveal the CIA's criminal behavior were harassed
and censored if they were American writers, and tortured and murdered if
they were foreigners. (See Philip Agee's On the Run for an example of early
However, over the last two decades the tide of evidence has
become overwhelming, and the CIA has found that it does not have enough
fingers to plug every hole in the dike. This is especially true in the age
of the Internet, where information flows freely among millions of people.
Since censorship is impossible, the Agency must now defend itself with apologetics.
Clinton's "Americans will never know" defense is a prime example.
Another common apologetic is that "the world is filled
with unsavory characters, and we must deal with them if we are to protect
American interests at all." There are two things wrong with this. First,
it ignores the fact that the CIA has regularly spurned alliances with defenders
of democracy, free speech and human rights, preferring the company of military
dictators and tyrants. The CIA had moral options available to them, but
did not take them.
Second, this argument begs several questions. The first is:
"Which American interests?" The CIA has courted right-wing dictators
because they allow wealthy Americans to exploit the country's cheap labor
and resources. But poor and middle-class Americans pay the price whenever
they fight the wars that stem from CIA actions, from Vietnam to the Gulf
War to Panama. The second begged question is: "Why should American
interests come at the expense of other peoples' human rights?"
The CIA should be abolished, its leadership dismissed and
its relevant members tried for crimes against humanity. Our intelligence
community should be rebuilt from the ground up, with the goal of collecting
and analyzing information. As for covert action, there are two moral options.
The first one is to eliminate covert action completely. But this gives jitters
to people worried about the Adolf Hitlers of the world. So a second option
is that we can place covert action under extensive and true democratic oversight.
For example, a bipartisan Congressional Committee of 40 members could review
and veto all aspects of CIA operations upon a majority or super-majority
vote. Which of these two options is best may be the subject of debate, but
one thing is clear: like dictatorship, like monarchy, unaccountable covert
operations should die like the dinosaurs they are.
