Fusion Centers Were Emailed Mind Control Claims

The Washington State Fusion Center (WSFC) provided files pertaining to alleged electronic harassment perpetrated by the intelligence community in response to an April 19 public records request. The request sought records indicating where images originated and how they were obtained published in an April 18 MuckRock article on remote mind control files previously released by the Center. 

The additional records, provided in a May 16 message from a Washington State Patrol Public Records Officer, include a copy of a 2017 email apparently composed by an activist for a demographic known as Targeted Individuals and sent to multiple fusion centers, among numerous other recipients. The material contained in the email and additional files portrays a variety of unsubstantiated claims, often presented as if factual statements. Also reflected are verified instances of IC nefarious activities, surveillance, and research and development of electronic weaponry.

 of 2017 email, "CIA NSA Surveillance"

The files, seemingly provided to the WSFC from outside sources, tend to blur the lines between speculative accusations and verified historical circumstances, such as Project MKULTRA. Such inexact connections and speculation often occur in the Targeted Individual and UFO communities, which each consist of researchers who explore such material, although typically from differing perspectives.

It was unclear if all of the files provided May 16 were sent to the WSFC in the 2017 email composed by the activist, or received in some other manner. A telephone call to the Public Records Officer was not immediately returned which sought clarification of context of the copy of the 2017 email and accompanying files. It is not entirely apparent how it all pertained to the request submitted, seeking info about the origins of records released to MuckRock. 

The mind control-related material unexpectedly provided to MuckRock, as researcher Curtis Waltman wrote, was included in response to his request for files pertaining to Antifa and white supremacists. The credibility of claims of electronic harassment contained in files subsequently provided by the WSFC is therefore arguably not at issue as compared to the possible significance of the relationship of the material and its authors to the topic of Waltman's request. 

The files contained in the May 16 response are the 2017 email titled, "CIA NSA Surveillance," as well as files titled "Electronic Harassment," "John St. Claire Akwei vs. NSA Ft. Meade MD USA," "Julianne McKinney report," and "projectMKULTRA." The files may be viewed and downloaded at keepandshare.

Repetitive content and email code were removed from "CIA NSA Surveillance" for brevity and uploading before transferring it to pdf. Interested parties may obtain the original file in its entirety from WSFC or contact me. 

The files include content reflecting various degrees of reliability. The MKULTRA file, for instance, appears to be a long available rendering of a Congressional hearing, while other files contain some quite questionable interpretations, and all points in between. The "Juliette McKinney report" contains a 23-page publicly available paper composed in 1992 by McKinney, reportedly a former intelligence officer, and titled, "Microwave Harassment and Mind-Control Experimentation". 

The Targeted Individual and UFO communities somewhat interestingly consist of similar kinds of inner fighting. Accusations are hurled of disinformation agents causing dissent and spreading confusion under the guise of conducting activism and research. 

The collective material provided by WSFC may very well offer no surprises to those familiar with the TI and UFO communities. However, its possible context to the records requests might intrigue researchers.



Mind Control Files Included in FOIA Response


  1. Fusion centers are definitely on the radar of the TI community. Here in Richmond, the city council passed a version of Kucinich’s Space Preservation Act that the local (and not-so-local) TI community felt would address their issues. One TI who spoke in support mentioned fusion centers specifically. However, I should point out that another TI speaker expressed alarm about SCADA systems, linking them to space weapons and government mind control and apparently overlooking the fact they are actually used for controlling complex process technologies (chemical plants, pipelines, etc).

    Richmond’s passage of the “space weapons ban” in 2015 was hailed as a major victory by the TI community, which from what I can tell is continually trying to find ways to make it appear as if their delusions are real. By associating documents related to various forms of psychotronic weapons with a fusion center, they’ve won another battle. Even the Muckrock article now supports the reality of TI allegations by referring to “Washington State Fusion Center’s accidental release of records on the effects of remote mind control.” My guess - those records were probably produced somewhere within the TI community itself.

    1. Yes, the images released to MuckRock were definitely old hat around the TI community, at least some of the material previously published on a relatively well known website. Some of the material provided by WSFC to me is also composed by people well known to TIs, and at least some of it, if not all of it, was apparently provided to the Center by such individuals. Perhaps a relevant question becomes why it overlapped with MuckRock's request for records on Antifa and white supremacists.

      Thanks for the info about Richmond. The topic indeed typically becomes mired down goat paths, obstructing what points of interest any of the circumstances may have, so I appreciate knowing more about how the belief systems effect actual social situations as you described.

  2. I can’t figure out what any of this e-mailing means, if it means anything at all.

    However, Targeted Individuals is a new sub-culture to me, so I poked around a bit online and found some stuff. My first reaction was they’re victims of a psychosis brought on by our over dependence on technology and the electronic devices that have taken over our lives.

    Well-grounded fears about technology (e.g., my smartphone is tracking my movements; Alexa is listening to everything in my home even when I’m not giving commands; my baby monitor camera feed is being hacked) seem to have been amplified from rational concerns to extreme fear and delusions of being tortured and manipulated by technology.

    Many Targeted Individuals believe they’ve had RFID chips implanted (like alien implants), are the unwilling victims of terrifying human experiments (like the aliens perform), as well as are tracked and targeted by electronic weapons (like abductees are tracked by their implants).

    Perhaps belief in alien abductions was a reflection of the zeitgeist 20 or so years ago, when The X-Files was a pervasive socio-cultural phenomenon (Mulder’s sister being abducted by aliens was the character’s motivation and the show’s driving premise). Meanwhile, anxiety about technology taking control over us is a reflection of the zeitgeist now (2018’s X-Files re-boot features an episode where technology not only runs everything but also runs amok and curtails human agency).

    However, the electronic assault claimed at the US embassy in Cuba and claims by a Western businessman in China appear to have some validity. In those cases, electronic targeting by foreign powers that were considered bitter enemies until only relatively recently seems plausible.

    But, experiments (which many Targeted Individuals believe they’re guinea pigs for) take place under controlled conditions to limit the impact of uncontrolled variables on the results. So, running experiments on people in widely varying situations out in the community where conditions can’t be controlled is counter-productive. There’s too much noise in the experiments for the results to be reliable.

    So, is any of this targeting real? Well those who claim to experience it believe it’s real, just as the alien abductees did. But subjective reality sometimes doesn’t reflect objective reality.

    1. Well, few scientific studies exist (at least in the public realm) that explore the possible long-term effects of such technology. Then, extrapolating out to the areas which might be of concerns to the TI and UFO is very hard to find literature that discusses the health effects of exposure to Pulse Microwave and EFI radiation among others.

      In 1962, it was discovered the Soviet's were bombarding the American embassy in Russia with Microwave radiation yet all the findings are still classified by the US government 50+ years on. Why?

      Not necessarily. Not if you wanted to study the "participants" in their native environment so to speak. And, this is assuming that true "patriotic" American's are behind it. But, what about those with connections to the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, etc? This seems like an awfully good way to spread some distrust/disconnect within a population...

    2. Seems the Russians might have done a good job of it using nothing more nefarious than social media.

      We also are routinely very successfully manipulated on a daily basis without any science fiction weaponry needed. It's called advertising, marketing, or public relations.

    3. Fake News, right? Actually, the 1962 Moscow Signal is well documented. I don't have access to the actual declassified briefings right now, but here are a couple of links for reference:

  3. Adding to the complexity of the topic, some people who describe themselves as TIs also believe themselves to be alien abductees. They apparently consider themselves qualified to accurately identify the differences in alleged perpetrators between such reported experiences, circumstances that would of course be difficult for others to accept absent more evidence than witness testimony.

    Perhaps most interesting is indeed the social significance. Some of the implications have been aptly stated in the above comments. Also of interest might be the 2007 Sharon Weinberger article from WaPo Magazine, 'Mind Games', and how it winds around to an intriguing interview with Mr. Nonlethal (who was almost certainly alluding to GITMO with some of his statements, we can now better suppose):

    It might be most challenging to recognize the valid issues without getting bogged down in some of the extreme ideologies and claims that permeate the topic, IMO.

  4. Interesting piece. Although Mr. Girard's alleged psychologist girlfriend is wrong. We used talk about having a nervous breakdown. Now we talk about having a psychotic break. Untreated, the effects can last a long time.

    My mother experienced a break in her late 40s and what she said was happening to her sounded much like Mr. Girard's story, only the details were personal to her life and our family. If you knew our family and my late mother, you'd realize electronically targeting her is beyond implausible.

    I would speculate that to find valid instances of targeting, a researcher must look very closely and carefully at a claimant's extended background, including where he/she grew up and later lived, work experience, political activities, sphere of influence, as well as his/her social, professional, and familial connections.

    I seriously doubt Mr. Girard's offhand comments at a fundraiser would make him a candidate for targeting. Ditto for random civilians of no strategic importance out in the community. The local who does oil changes at the neighborhood garage would hardly be targeted unless maybe he routinely services, for example, a Senator's car.

    I did note that a darling of the UFO believer community, John Alexander, has his name come up in this context. So, I would agree there is some overlap and the fingerprints of the intelligence community are visible here as well. But do I believe all self-proclaimed Targeted Individuals have been targeted? Nope.

  5. I concur only because I realize psychosis seems more prevalent today. So much on the internet should be taken with large doses of salt or completely tossed without verification. Maybe access to a huge platform has given us access to many more people who have suffered.

    I remember a young man on a message board during the Y2K era. He felt he was being harassed with voices and electronic problems no matter how often he moved from his digs. Having come from a family with various members having suffered forms of psychosis, it may have been too easy to suggest this young man might be suffering the same, but I decided I wasn’t off the mark. Because the issues are convoluted, the easiest answer, based on my experience with family, seemed the best course.

    Having read so many reports by abductees of finding a military presence during their harrowing events seemed to change the dialogue considerably at face value, but again, psychosis can account for our worst fears being played out in complicated scenarios. We can be our worst enemy. In my opinion, psychosis is the most logical answer unless someone is able to prove otherwise. I’m open to undeniable proof because I know the technology exists and could have been perpetrated on unsuspecting individuals, but only proof is damning.

  6. If taxpayer money was spent using research subjects at any time during that 22 million sinkhole activity you would think we would get something relevant to any phenonema rather than requests for more money. Normally I would look at DARPA for such exotic biofeedback..telling us its to cure neural disorders.. Then again..Darpa likes measurable stuff. The only feedback project for a hoax would be DOD's domain.. ..naturally..gauging results from a psyop totally worthwhile in identifying points of resistance. from those pesky skeptics who seem to get in the way of their projects and contaminate, sometimes prematurely end
    the best of the plans. Maybe thats why so many NDAS..which although tittlate (what are they hiding?) to get attention. has the same effect as throwing an imaginary bone to a dog..who will just stop after a couple of tries..Try it some time..I'm a cat owner..they never fall for that..something has to be there..solid and potentially eatable..
