Next, let’s take a look at who some of the targeted individuals are. Julianne McKinney: former military intelligence. Derrick Robinson: former NSA. Lynnae Williams: former CIA and DIA. And sort of Russell Tice: former NSA (he was accused of being mentally unstable, not actually claiming to be otherwise targeted) and Dakota Meyer: former marine who won the Congressional Medal of Honor, but criticized weapons manufacturer BAE Systems; the Pentagon then said to a prospective employer that he was a mentally unstable alcoholic, spread stories via McClatchy news service that he was undeserving of his medal, and thus prevented him from working in the defense sector.
Then there’s Mark from NSA subcontractor Technodyne. I met him personally in Minneapolis and heard his story. He reported some billing discrepancies to his superiors and later lost his job and became a target. They ruined his life and that of one of the company’s partners. He eventually brought evidence to the Washington Post, but the editors decided not to run it at the last minute.
These people are not traitors. If anything, it’s the fact that they have scruples that landed them in hot water with a corrupt kleptocracy.
Moving back a bit in history, you also have Martha Mitchell at the heart of Watergate, where White House officials had her committed. More recently overseas, a similar situation called the “Mollath Affair” in Germany over a banking scandal.
Speaking out against companies and corruption is enough for you to be placed on a target list. Be careful and not contact companies to complain because you just don't know how well connected the people who run these companies are and what extent they are willing to punish people they don't like.
