"COINTELPRO, that shocked the nation after the Church Committee investigations, never ended", according to former FBI agent M. Wesley Swearingen.
"The new COINTELPRO operates globally under a different code name, more sophisticated, with access to modern weapons"
Former FBI agent Bob Levin agrees.
Levin, "a validated FBI whistle-blower and blacklisted journalist", will be publishing the Blackfile Summary Report later this year.
"The Report will include the personal story of becoming a targeted individual [TI], subjected to the political retribution of on-going, illegal COINTELPRO operations".
"COINTELPRO began in the 1950s and was a program to disrupt communism---however, the program has continued and may have changed names many times".
The methods used by the FBI in the COINTELPRO program closely match those methods used today by those who engage in organized stalking, also known as gang stalking.
"Well-orchestrated accusations, lies, rumors, bogus investigations, set-ups, framings, intimidation, overt or covert threats, vandalism, thefts, sabotage, torture, humiliation, emotional terror and general harassment".
In 2009, the U.S.Justice Department issued a Special Report "Stalking Victimization in the United States"
(Pub # NCJ 224527)
In this 2009 survey, DOJ estimated the number of stalking victims who reported multiple stalkers to be in excess of 180,000 during the 12 month study period.
Freedom Of Information Act documents prove that DOJ deliberately under-estimated the true number of victims reporting multiple stalkers during the 12 month study period; and the actual number of stalking victims reporting multiple stalkers during the 12 month study period is probably between 500,000 and 600,000, more than three times the number estimated by the Justice Department.
Why would the United States Department of Justice not want the American people to know the true number of organized stalking victims?
Perhaps the Justice Department itself is involved in this type of stalking.
That would explain why DOJ has never prosecuted a multiple stalker case.
That would also explain why the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) "does not provide direct assistance to victims of multi-stalker incidents" (OVC is part of the United States Justice Department)
President Obama recently asked Vice-President Biden to head the "Campaign To Cut Waste", a new effort to "cut out wasteful spending at every agency and department in the federal government".
"It's a no-brainer to stop spending taxpayer dollars on things that benefit nobody--and that's what I intend to do with the help of a new Government Accountability and Transparency Board, a group composed of independent Inspectors-General and high-level agency officials who will help me root out waste, fraud, and abuse across the government", said the Vice-President.
It's extremely doubtful that the new Government Accountability and Transparency Board will "root out the waste, fraud, and abuse" going on within certain intelligence agencies, including the Billions of taxpayer dollars which are funding the "new, improved, illegal COINTELPRO program".
Meanwhile, the criminals who engage in organized stalking continue to act with impunity, knowing that the police will do nothing to stop them.
What is needed is a Congressional investigation into these and other intelligence matters.
Congressman Rush Holt (D-NJ), who sits on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, has called for such a Congressional investigation.
"I'd like to see something on the scope of the Church Committee", Holt said.
The Congressman said that "it had been a few decades since Congress took a comprehensive inquiry into the intelligence community's impact on the relationship between the individual and his or her government"
