I am opening up about my experience for two reasons. The first being because I believe this will help a great number of people, and the second is to raise money for VETS the organization that put me through the treatment so they can continue healing our US Special Operations Veterans.

"They gotten better at it." I do feel for him after waiting 4 years for treatments. But It took me 16 years of fighting against the garian for treatments for non Special Tier Units soldiers to get Treatments. Personally I lucked out linking up with Mr. Hook who helps running HBOT For Veterans; Hyperbaric chamber treatments. The attacks that are occurring are sound and microwave weapons. The weapons are directional and cause the air molecules to be hyper charged. once they "hit" a body of liquid it speeds up the molecules in causing the internal organs to shake. No different as blast exposures sound waves rattling the brain. The huge wall for Veterans is getting the same treatments that Special Tier to CIA are getting. I do feel for him because I faced this whistle blowing against 3RD ID 3rde late 2006 in their ineffective treatment of soldiers who were injured with PTSD and TBI.

Never trust a CIA officer. He's a nice guy, but he talks the same way the others do when it comes to certain subjects.
