- In the spirit of the Soviet "psikhushka" psychiatric
hospitals where anti-regime dissidents were sent, NSA is using psychologists
to eliminate independent-minded intelligence analysts and other career
employees. Adverse psychiatric evaluations of experienced NSA professionals
are being used by the neocons controlling the agency to gut America's signals
intelligence and information security capabilities. Former NSA Director
General Michael Hayden initiated this process and he was rewarded with
the post of Deputy Director for National Intelligence where he can now
extend his psikhushkas to other U.S. intelligence agencies.
- WMR has received the following letter from a long-time
NSA employee who is a victim of the psychiatric abuse:
- NSA's Own Nest of Cuckoos
- NSA's tribe of headshrinkers consists of a trio of psychologically
tortuous on-the-payroll psychologists led by Dr. John Schmidt. Dr. Marianne
Moran and Dr. Dina Wieczynski are his fledgling understudies who directly
execute orders from both NSA's Office of General Counsel and NSA's Office
- These three psychologists hold all the cards for continued
access to employment but many question if these doctors are abiding by
the ethics of their profession. Most unsuspecting employees targeted by
NSA's network of neoconservative officials often endure repeated brutal
types of mental interrogations. Reminiscent of the witch trials in past
centuries, former co-workers or acquaintances of these "marked"
employees for termination are welcomed to falsify statements to Federal
law enforcement agents assigned to NSA.
- Schmidt, Moran, and Wieczynski salivate in anticipation
of their next victim to abuse. All three are conducting their own sadistic
method of torture; Dr. Schmidt prefers to make female subjects sexually
uncomfortable, but tends to take a harsher stand with males. Dr. Moran,
like Dr. Wieczynski, appears to diagnose everyone with "personality
trait" disorders, despite non-Agency doctors finding to the contrary.
- Based on a series of documents, Dr. Wieczynski appears
to have mastered the art of psychic-evaluation, where the employee doesn't
even have to be present for an evaluation but she is able to give a complete
"unbiased" analysis into the person's psyche. These talents are
truly amazing considering the overwhelming number of agency-diagnosed employees
with "personality trait" problems or, in essence, "sociopaths"
who have freely wandered the halls of NSA over the past years.
- Particularly poetic is the fact that so many were never
identified and rejected initially through the stringent security background
investigations the agency conducts. On the other hand, the rising numbers
of "insanity" cases could just reflect the Gestapo-like tactics
generating massive paranoia throughout NSA. One former agency employee
stated, "We are nothing more than lab rats for psychological testing
at the whim of a hierarchy out of control . . . it is like being trapped
in a fixed maze where there is no way to escape." How long will this
career-fatal cat and mouse game continue?
- NSA Security resorts to Soviet-style "Psikhushka"
to intimidate and terminate career employees. The neocon assault on U.S.
national security continues. It's beyond time to take action.
- NOTE: This editor was attached to NSA in the mid-1980s.
Although I have been a critic of the agency over the years -- on issues
concerning NSA strictly abiding by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance
Act and the Constitution -- it is absolutely treasonous what is now taking
place at Fort Meade. NSA is responsible for one of the most critical intelligence
functions in the United States Intelligence Community -- signals intelligence,
the discipline that ensured America's military victories in World War II.
- The neocons are not only rifling through sensitive raw
intercepts of the personal communications of U.S. citizens but they are
now conducting a purge of independent-minded intelligence analysts and
technicians at NSA who refuse to kowtow to the "new normality"
of quasi-fascist control of the United States Intelligence Community. Combine
this neocon abuse at NSA with the outing of non-official cover CIA agents,
punishing national security whistleblowers, and other outrages, and one
must conclude that the neocons are extremely dangerous elements within
the United States government and they must be held accountable for their
- I am kicking off a letter campaign to the Congress when
it returns from recess after Labor Day. It calls on Congress to immediately
pass legislation requiring the Director of National Intelligence to order
an immediate halt to and retroactive (to include the past three years)
reversal of all personnel actions within the U.S. intelligence community
that are based on blatant political vendettas. I will personally hand-deliver
the letter to the relevant committees on intelligence, government affairs,
and armed services.
- If you are a current or past member of the U.S. intelligence
community (including military service and law enforcement elements) and
would like to sign on, please send you name, city and state where you vote,
and agency and division (if classified, merely send the cover title), and
years of service to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you reside abroad, state
your home of record (birth place or city and state where you cast your
absentee ballot). If you are a current member of the U.S. intelligence
community and wish to remain anonymous, merely provide your agency and
city and state where you vote.
- Dear Senator/Representative [XXXXXXX]
- We, the undersigned members and veterans of the U.S.
Intelligence Community are writing you to request that legislation be introduced
that would require the Director of National Intelligence to order an immediate
halt to politically-motivated adverse personnel actions that are directed
against career members of the U.S. Intelligence Community. A number of
experienced intelligence professionals who have strictly followed departmental
and agency rules and regulations and demonstrated their commitment to the
the Constitution and the national security of the United States have been
victimized by an Intelligence Community-wide program of intimidation, psychological
abuse, revocation of their security clearances, and wrongful termination.
This witch hunt and purge must stop. We are also asking that all politically-motivated
terminations of intelligence professionals over the past three years be
immediately reversed by the Director of National Intelligence and a review
of the individual circumstances of the adverse actions be conducted by
a special congressionally-chartered commission staffed by professional
mediators from the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service.

- As someone who worked with NSA people on systems contracts
back in the 1980's,
- I can state categorically that their employees have historically
are wonderful, fine dedicated people and great patriots. The pay isn't
exactly stellar, so you know they must be dedicated.
- Of course, almost any government agency has a dark side
- with nasty people doing dirty work. But overall, those people only provide
the security function. No one ever wants a visit (overt or covert) from
them...and the thought of it is what keeps most NSA people on the straight
- One agency employee told me some years ago, that they
received a very minor speeding ticket (mosy of call it a "chicken
ticket.") The next morning the person was called into the office and
dressed down. The NSA monitors their employees like no one else can. And
they know it.
- So WHY would the leadership need a purge? Perhaps they
are finding that employees can't believe what's happening to America, right
in front of their eyes. And they aren't thrilled to be a part of it.
- It's no wonder the shrub on PA Ave. wants a purge. Real
patriots don't like a police state disguised as "new freedom,"
and are waking up in droves. In past articles I've directly called for
people inside the government to help stop this police state takeover of
America. Perhaps a few people actually listened to that call from myself
and others like Alex Jones. We cannot forget that "God works in mysterious
- The psyc. evaluation program sounds like yet another
idea from under-furer Karl Rove to further consolidate power in the palace.
Has ANYONE noticed, that Rove's name starts with a "K" and not
a "C?" Spelling it with a "K" is more germanic oriented.
One can be sure that some time before Bush's term is up, he'll doing something
so drastic that martial law will be declared. And with it - his term in
office will go on indefinitely under military law.
- That is - if he gets away with it.
