  1. Sandra Fields,

    I missed this program on Cointel Pro unfortunately. I have been a victim of this harassment and intrusion into my life for over 11 years, after I found out some confidential governenment information. I have been harassed and followed every day since then. The government has many secrets. I have been tormented in the last year and 1/2 by electro magnetic radiation shocks, burns and stills running through my body and mind. Called Directed Enerergy Weapons, these types of equipment are currently housed by the FDNY, and Homeland Seccurity is using them. Here is a link to a video that is important to understand what the government arsonal is about. Barrie Trower, an expert on Microwave technology. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLWRdkxKXiw
