Wyden Letter
Lynn Weed

CANR and KELB support Senator Wyden’s position: “. . .to address the Intelligence Community’s reliance on secret interpretations of surveillance law, arguing that while “intelligence agencies need to be ablet to conduct operations in secret, even secret operations need to be conducted within the bounds of established, publicly understood law.. . .” 1.

Our Issue: Defendants’ promise in the 1970s to locate the victims of their human experimentation program, and to provide compensation and health care, proved to be hollow. Defendants never made a sincere effort to locate the survivors. . . . (#15),
from Gordon Erspamer, Lead lawyer for Vietnam Veterans of America.
Their current case: Vietnam Veterans of America et al. v. CIA et al. CV 09-0037-CW,U.S.D.C. (N.D. Cal 2009) . i Quote from: Second Amended Order for Injunctive and Declaratory Relief Under U.S. Constitution and Federal Statutes (Class Action), pp 8,9 # 13,14,15,16 2.

Senator Feinstein, Quote: “Besides the constitutional implications, the CIA search may have violated the Fourth Amendment, the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as (an executive order), which bars the CIA from conducting domestic surveillance. . . “ Senator Diane Fienstein 3.

Main Surveillance Act, FISA

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act

FISA is the cornerstone on which the Patriot Act, Library Lists and other surveillance acts rest. Repeal it, and their legal basis is extremely shaky and will not be difficult to effectively challenge. Leave it, and they may remain for a long time.

The Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, FISA seems a rebirth of the Cointelpro program and the Blacklist.  The elements of each are the same.  One’s placement in any of those programs is based on a subjective interpretation of everyday common events, at some point deemed anti-American or subversive (without a judge or jury). These same activities, originally called Cointelpro, now, have become secret, through Title 50 Chapter 36.

To be placed on the Blacklist (1956), an innocent comment, such as actor Will Geer made, praising the Russian theater, resulted in him being placed on the Blacklist.  This negatively impacted his acting career. Lucille Ball’s grandfather was on a Communist Party roll.  That got her placed on the “List”.  Similarly, in 2018, with FISA enacted, it is possible that one’s conversation with an Afghanistani or Iranian  taxi driver, about life and war, and one’s perceptions, could get one on the FISA list.

We all have thoughts on the theater, Russian or other, life, and war.  Should voicing them, put U.S. military intelligence in our bedrooms – and put us at the risk of directed energy surveillance devices/ weapons, which DARPA furnishes to military contractors doing the surveillance, as allowed by Title 50, Chapter 36? 1.

Normally, warrants require “probable cause”, that a crime is being planned or committed.  But FISA warrants do not.  They require only that the FBI show probable cause to believe that “the target of the electronic surveillance is a foreign power or an agent of a foreign power.”2.  This was the same prerequisite of the earlier Cointelpro activities.  Will Geer praised the Russian theater, therefore, “he must be a Communist.”  Flawed reasoning, then, had these people placed on a “list”, resulting in their lives and careers, being ruined.

Ramasastry at Findlaw, writes of this non-evidential process leading to surveillance: “Amazingly, even if the defendants move to suppress evidence resulting from the wiretaps and microphones from being offered at trial, they may still not have a chance to see the warrant applicants.  The government will show them only to a “FISA Judge” – along with the underlying evidence, and an affidavit from the U.S. Attorney General’s Office stating that releasing the material would harm national security.

Without the benefit of adversary briefing, the judge will then rule on whether the warrants satisfied the law.  Defendants will still remain in the dark – and when the motion is decided, they’ll receive yet another ruling based on secret evidence.” 3.  IBID

All of the elements of Cointelpro, are present in FISA, only they have become secret.  Placement on the FISA list takes the place of individual warrants and these people are accused of no crime.  Those acts which infringe  rights for a criminal thief, or drug dealer, in the FISA situation, can occur, to unknowing uncharged citizens.  – this infringement/denial of rights, under FISA, includes due process and Fourth Amendment rights. . . .

US judge: Terror watchlist violates constitutional rights
By MATTHEW BARAKAT, Associated Press 3 days ago
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — The government’s watchlist of more than 1 million people identified as “known or suspected terrorists” violates the constitutional rights of those placed on it, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

The ruling from U.S. District Judge Anthony Trenga grants summary judgment to nearly two dozen Muslim U.S. citizens who had challenged the watchlist with the help of a Muslim civil-rights group, the Council on American-Islamic Relations…..

One noteworthy victim of Cointelpro activities was the actress Jean Seberg and her subsequent suicide.  13.   Because of her support for the Black Panther Party, actress Jean Seberg was targeted for ‘neutralization’ by the FBI’s COINTELPRO effort. SAC Richard W. Held, the author of the request, went on to become SAC San Francisco at the time of the bombing of Earth First activist Judi Bari. He subsequently retired from the Bureau to become Head of Security for Visa International. 19.All of these documents and many, many more can be found in The Cointelpro Papers by Ward Churchill and Jim Vander Wall (South End Press, 1990) ISBN 0-89608-359-4.

See Attachment for the FBI’s redacted memos. 

Concerning Jean Seberg, The Guardian states (April 25 2002): “More details are emerging of the FBI’s breathtaking smear campaign against actress Jean Seberg, a campaign which probably drove her to suicide. Duncan Campbell reports.  20.

More than 30 years ago, a small item appeared in a gossip column in the Los Angeles Times which suggested that a prominent American actress, who was married to a well-known European, was expecting the child of a leading Black Panther. The story was taken up by Newsweek, which identified the actress as Jean Seberg and her husband as Romain Gary, the French writer and diplomat. The Black Panther was Ray “Masai” Hewitt, the party’s minister of information.

Seberg was deeply upset by the story, gave birth prematurely and the child died after two days. The actress never fully recovered, say her friends, and she committed suicide. Now, the truth of how a malicious lie was planted by the FBI and its director J. Edgar Hoover is emerging.

Seberg, an actress known for her work in the play “The Mouse That Roared’, married Romain Gary, and became increasingly involved in radical American politics, most notably as a supporter of the Black Panther party, which Hoover was then describing as the greatest threat to internal security in the US. The FBI labelled Seberg as a radical for her involvement.” 21.

 The FBI was deeply involved in covert operations against “radicals”, whether they were leading protagonists such as Martin Luther King or minor players such as Seberg, who had given $US10,500 to the Panthers. Seberg’s phone was tapped. When, in 1970, the FBI discovered she was pregnant, it decided to see if it could spread a story through gossip columns that the father was Hewitt. 

An FBI memo, later disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act under the heading Counterintelligence Program Black Nationalist Hate Groups, Racial Intelligence – Black Panther Party, was sent to Hoover himself. “Bureau permission is requested to publicize the pregnancy of Jean Seberg, well-known movie actress, by [deleted] Black Panther party [deleted] by advising Hollywood gossip columnists in the Los Angeles area of the situation,” it read. “It is felt that the possible publication of Seberg’s plight could cause her embarrassment and serve to cheapen her image with the general public.”

The memo suggested that a letter from a fictitious person would plant the rumour with gossip columnists. Hoover approved the tactic, though he advised waiting until Seberg was visibly pregnant so she would not suspect her phone had been tapped. The first paper to bite was the LA Times whose gossip columnist, Joyce Haber, ran the story under the headline of Miss A Rates as Expectant Mother. Although the story did not name Seberg, it gave enough clues for people to identify her: “a handsome European picked her for his wife … the outgoing Miss A was pursuing a number of free-spirited causes, among them the black revolution . . . According [to] all those really ‘in’ international sources, topic A is the babe Miss A is expecting and its father. Papa’s said to be a rather prominent Black Panther.”

Haber’s column was syndicated across the US in more than 100 newspapers. It was not long before Newsweek picked it up and printed Seberg’s name. She was devastated.  22.

Seberg lost the baby. In 1979, she was found dead in a car in Paris having taken an overdose of barbiturates. She was 40, and by then married for a fourth time.

1953: Central Intelligence Agency director Allen Dulles authorizes the MK-ULTRA project. The agency launches one of its most dubious covert programs ever, turning unsuspecting humans into guinea pigs for its research into mind-altering drugs.

More than a decade before psychologist Timothy Leary advocated the benefits of LSD and urged everyone to “turn on, tune in, drop out,” the CIA’s Technical Services Staff launched the highly classified project to study the mind-control effects of this and other psychedelic drugs, using unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as lab mice.

Dulles wanted to close the “brainwashing gap” that arose after the United States learned that American prisoners of war in Korea were subjected to mind-control techniques by their captors.

Loathe to be outdone by foreign enemies, the CIA sought, through its research, to devise a truth serum to enhance the interrogations of POWs and captured spies. The agency also wanted to develop techniques and drugs — such as “amnesia pills” — to create CIA superagents who would be immune to the mind-control efforts of adversaries.
