Psy War and COINTELPRO: The Assault on FBI/CIA Whistleblowers

Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Galatians 5:19-21

Psy War and COINTELPRO: The Assault on FBI/CIA Whistleblowers

Former FBI Chief Ted L. Gunderson (FBI, 1951-1979) would have you believe that Barbara Hartwell is a CIA disinfo agent; and he has been spreading this outrageous lie for a decade.

Gunderson's personal vendetta (and the accompanying libel campaign) against Hartwell began in 2000, after I broke off a three year (1997-2000) professional association and personal friendship, based on what I then believed to be shared values and goals (exposing government corruption, defending Liberty, etc.).

My reason for disassociating from Ted Gunderson? I discovered that he (and his cronies, including, most notably, former senator John DeCamp) embodied the worst of the very tyranny and  corruption I am dedicated to exposing and fighting.

And for the record, it's important to state that Ted Gunderson, during his FBI service, was one of the most prominent COINTELPRO Kingpins, under J. Edgar Hoover. But nothing has changed, at least not much, since Gunderson retired from the FBI. The COINTELPRO legacy is very much alive, still wreaking havoc, still destroying the lives of those who would stand up against the criminals in government, who would speak the unvarnished truth, who refuse to compromise with evildoers, or to be enslaved by the tyranny which has become institutionalized in the U.S. government.

But Ted Gunderson is not operating alone in his psy war against legitimate whistleblowers, including Barbara Hartwell and former FBI agent Geral Sosbee. He has recruited a veritable army of minions, stooges, shills and toadies  --a brood of hissing vipers all eager to do the dirty work of harassing, stalking, threatening, libeling/slandering the targets of COINTELPRO.

And in conjunction with the collusion of his cronies (all professionals, former/current government operatives/agents/officials) Gunderson exploits this loosely organized network of unscrupulous and belligerent  amateurs for his own ends. Some are criminals (convicted or not), at least a few  of whom made a deal with the feds for early release from prison, or who have been able to avoid doing any time at all in exchange for their cooperation in targeting genuine whistleblowers,  journalists, patriots and Christians.

It is important to understand that although some of the minions, stooges and shills answer directly to Ted Gunderson, most in fact have simply been drawn into the criminal network via association with the Gunderson groupies (as I call them) --those who have direct contact with Gunderson, DeCamp  (inter alia) and who (for one reason or another) have an axe to grind --usually against the designated targets-- again (and especially as related to this report), including Hartwell and Sosbee.

Here I will provide a letter (2005),  from one such government stooge and Gunderson groupie, John Allman. This letter is published on Educate-Yourself, a New Age government disinfo website owned by Ken Adachi, who for at least the past decade, has served as the primary PR shill for Ted Gunderson and his cronies; and who also promotes many of his fellow liars, stooges and shills  --all of whom have taken it upon themselves to support, defend and promote Ted Gunderson et al, and to demonize, harass and/or threaten Barbara Hartwell and certain of my associates.

I should mention that this letter is relatively mild in attacking the targets, and is more about defending/promoting the "virtues" and "credibility" of Ted Gunderson.

However, I publish it here for three (3) reasons:

1) I have never addressed it and I consider it necessary to refute it for the public record.

2) It serves as an example of the profound ignorance and stupidity of those who would attack legitimate whistleblowers simply because they have been duped by the COINTELPRO black propaganda against targets which is fabricated and promoted by Gunderson and his ilk.

3) It has made the rounds on the Internet for the past five (5) years and is still prominently displayed on Adachi's website, in two special sections, one of which is dedicated to promoting/defending Ted Gunderson; the other,  dedicated to libeling Barbara Hartwell ("Barbara Hartwell, Founder and CEO of Liars, Inc").

As well, this poison pen letter somehow manages to continually surface among the top listings in Google (no surprise there) along with similar smear pieces fabricated and disseminated by the very same gaggle of government stooges (what a startling coincidence...)

Following the letter from John Allman, there are comments from my friend Geral Sosbee, rebutting the libel of Gunderson and Adachi and exposing them as malicious liars.

I have also included a list of the accomplices of Ted Gunderson, John DeCamp et al, who are all complicit in the libel campaign against Barbara Hartwell and other legitimate whistleblowers.

How do I define an accomplice? Anyone who in any way, shape or form aids and abets the persecution of a whistleblower and/or promotes, supports, defends the assailants, demonic liars, calumniators; anyone who disseminates/parrots the black propaganda/character assassination designed to discredit/neutralize/destroy the target.

Lastly, it is important to state that this letter from John Allman, published on Ken Adachi's site, is addressed to the notorious government stooge and G-Man wannabe, Tim White. White is a predicate felon, a fed snitch who made a deal with corrupt government agents and cops (2002) in exchange for a get-out-of-jail-free card. White (who served only a fraction of his sentence) is a drug trafficker, a sex pervert/predator, transvestite, a child porno freak, and a psycho stalker who has harassed, libeled and made death threats against numerous journalists, whistleblowers and patriots. White is exploited by Gunderson and DeCamp, who have sicced him on their targets, including Barbara Hartwell. 

Following the letter from Allman you will find a libelous assault from Tim White, accomplice of Gunderson and DeCamp, and fellow stooge/shill of Ken Adachi, who promotes Tim White extensively on his website.

[For the purposes of this report, I will only be addressing the allegations directed against Barbara Hartwell. I have added my comments, in brackets, preceded by my initials, BHP, in the main body of text.]


Barbara Hartwell and Stew Webb, A Response from John Allman
By John Allman
March 31, 2005

Dear Tim [White]

These two, along with Kathy Kasten, are knee-deep in attempted character assassination of poor old Ted Gunderson. Ted is one of the twelve members of the international group I founded, called Christians Against Mental Slavery, the last person invited to join, if I recall correctly.

[BHP: "Poor old Ted Gunderson"? This character needs to wake up to reality; and if he wants to call himself a Christian, maybe he should ask God to give him a love of the truth before he jumps to unwarranted conclusions and takes it upon himself to libel people he does not know.

In any case, there has been no "character assassination" against Ted Gunderson, not by Barbara Hartwell. Speaking strictly for myself, I have only exposed factual, truthful, accurate information about the criminal activities of Ted Gunderson, both "inside" and "outside" of his FBI service.]

Intelligent questions addressed to these three, amongst the handful of Ted's habitual detractors, intended on my part to elicit substantiation or retraction of their allegations, are typically met with belligerance, evasion, and even accusations directed at myself, but often addressed unethically only to third parties, of complicity on my own part with "the perps", accusations of the kind that would be especially hurtful to victims like me who were less resilient than I have learnt to become. Not so with the polite and open Mr Gunderson himself, whose home phone number I think is likely still on his website.

[BHP:  For the record:

1) Mr. Allman is a liar. I have never once been approached by Mr. Allman with any sort of "questions". Furthermore, I do not have a public e-mail address, so there would have been no way for him to contact me directly.

2) There have been no "belligerence", "evasion" or "accusations" coming from me.  I had never heard of this idiotic Allman character until I found HIS character assassination and outright lies about Barbara Hartwell published on Ken Adachi's website. And I have never once addressed this issue before today. Furthermore, I do not engage in discussions, debates or arguments with idiots, morons, government stooges, nor my detractors. I simply expose and refute the lies they are disseminating about me. Sooner or this case later. ]

I gather that Gunderson hosted a radio phone-in once during which a caller to the program (me) made allegations (admittedly quite likely to be untrue) against another broadcaster, I think called Art Bell. I am informed that Gunderson promptly became a joint defendant with the radio station in a libel suit, and that his radio station employer's insurance company decided to settle out of court with the plaintiff, presumably the said Mr Bell, without Gunderson's admission of liability, and indeed without his being allowed, by his contract of employment, to deny liability in any court hearing.

[BHP: Is Allman admitting that he himself slandered Art Bell on Gunderson's radio show? It sure sounds that way. "Presumably"? There is absolutely  no doubt about the identity of the plaintiff.  Allman doesn't have his facts straight, so there is nothing further to say.]

I know of no other skeletons in Gunderson's cupboard, ostensibly another repentent sinner saved by God's grace just like me, of a kind that that would discredit him as anything less than a stout friend of our movement, even though I don't suppose that he would claim to be an expert on what we suffer nowadays, and even though our particular struggle for justice - important to us though it seems to us and as it doubtless is for the benefit of future generations - is not at the centre of the aged Gunderson's personal agenda.

[BHP: What is this incoherent gobbeldygook? I'm hard-pressed to determine exactly what he means to say.  And I would not presume to make a judgment as to who is a recipient of God's grace, but if He granted it to Ted Gunderson, I would certainly rejoice --for Ted's sake. But so far, from my observations and personal experience, I can hardly view Gunderson as a "repentant sinner" --on the contrary, his behavior, over decades, reveals the polar oppositte.]
Gunderson is an ex-FBI career man of well-earned prestige, who denies vigorously ever having been complicit in any so-called "black" operations, i.e. those undertaken by public sector law-enforcement, security or intelligence agencies that are of dubious legality. He retired from the FBI decades ago, and claims to have worked since then, at least part of his time, and often for free out of compassion for victims, or simple patriotism, precisely to expose such wrong-doing on the part of officialdom. It is unlikely, in my view, that he is in league with the perps of what are loosely called "mind control". If he is, he is hopelessly incompetent at working mischief that will benefit those particular malefactors.

[BHP: Mr. Allman once again reveals his ignorance --as well as his unwarranted bias in favor of Ted Gunderson. But then, ignorance and bias typically  complement each other. Do some "unbiased"  research on COINTELPRO and black operations, Mr. Allman, if you want to be relieved of your ignorance. Otherwise, stop talking about subjects (and people) you know nothing about --especially Barbara Hartwell.]

Gunderson stated in writing that he was "proud" to join our anti-MC political group, and he has always treated me personally with civility, even though we are not yet close friends. At his great age, his life expectancy is actuarily so poor that any notion of the bad guys engaging him to infiltrate groups like ours as a "sleeper", only later for him to stab us in the back, is far fetched in the extreme.

[BHP: Nobody that I know of, Yours Truly included, has ever called Ted Gunderson a "sleeper". How utterly absurd. Perhaps Mr. Allman has been getting his "information" from spy novels.  But in any case, the bad guys wouldn't need to "engage" Ted Gunderson as an infiltrator. Gunderson is COINTELPRO --the Head Honcho of bad guy infiltrators.] 

I respect and trust Gunderson, and pay little or no attention to any of the handful of his conspicuously less rational detractors. I advise you to do likewise.

[BHP: If anyone is irrational, it is those like Mr. Allman, who apparently see no need to gather facts or evidence before leaping to conclusions they cannot support. By my way of thinking, respect and trust must be earned. If Ted Gunderson has in fact earned your trust and respect, Mr. Allman, then I truly pity you as one of the most stupid people I have ever had the displeasure to address.]

Thank you so much for this, you and I have been out of touch for several months, let us stay in contact more often.I am a close friend and associate of Teds' and am aware of all that you write here. I can tell you so much more on what is actually going on with this slander, libel, and smear hatchet job but I have more important things to attend to-of that I'm sure you would agree.The circumstances at the root of this latest attack are from Ted and I-and others too-putting out the truth about several very sensitive subjects that is causing great concern to the Dark Side so they have yet again unleashed their mind controlled disinfo agents-of which Hartwell and Webb are but two, they have now signed on yet another dupe here in Denver-to go after us in hopes of silencing us both.

It is NOT working now and will NOT work at any time. All that is being accomplished is Webb and Hartwell-and their accomplices-exposing THEMSELVES for what they really are-MIND CONTROLLED DISINFO/SET UP AGENTS CONTROLLED BY THE DARK SIDE-nothing less but possibly more. What is going on is not "attempted" but very real character assassination and I will seek legal remedies that have been offered to me PRO BONO, of that you can be sure also.


Tim White,Viet Nam Vet(Air Force)Concerned Citizen

I will decline to address the idiocy of Tim White; it speaks loudly and clearly for itself. But let us move on to the comments of Geral Sosbee, also a target of COINTELPRO and its agents, minions and stooges. 


Ted Gunderson's Character
April 18, 2005

From Geral Sosbee
Sosbee vs. FBI

Ted Gunderson (hereinafter referred to as 'gun') recently wrote the following words to my good friend and professional colleague, Barbara Hartwell:

"Do the righteous people of the world a service and, like other slimy creatures, slither back into the hole from which you came.

Ted L Gunderson, FBI-SAC(Ret)"

Sosbee writes:

Such words as quoted above when directed against one of the true and great Defenders of Liberty (Barbara Hartwell) offend all sensitive persons who read them, but especially those of us who know and respect Barbara for her stand against government corruption. Indeed the 'righteous' as you call them reject the use of such descriptions above because no human being merits such a label.

However, gun is steeped in the use of labels, especially those that send good and innocent people to torture chambers, to prisons or to their deaths; gun is an expert by his own proclamation of his credentials (i.e.:SAC) in a) black operations, b) mind games, c) secret agent-provocateur dirty deeds worldwide.

No, gun, you are wrong. The world needs Barbara Hartwell more than you could possibly know/imagine; and as you have sold out to the evil forces of a corrupt government (the United States of America) in return for your petty benefits, you are the one who must someday atone for the atrocities you approved, directed, or condoned against men and women over the past half century.

Come clean, gun, about your knowledge regarding offenses and crimes against Humanity; help save the lives of targeted individuals; and renounce the fascist state that you presently support; then, maybe intelligent and informed people will listen to you.

You dare pretend to show a concern for the people of the United States when in fact you exploit the ignorance and fear of all who listen to you in order to further your own private interests and in order to perpetuate the destructive agenda of the cia and the fbi. The downfall of this country into a fascist state is in part your doing, gun, and you should not be proud of that, no matter how high an office you have attained.

Sosbee writes for the record on April 30, 2005:
gun indicates on his website that he was chief inspector for the fbi in 1973; in such capacity, gun had the responsibility to investigate Sosbee's reports of fbi crimes during that year. Not only did he fail to perform his duties as chief inspector, he continued thereafter to serve in high level positions in the fbi at a time when Sosbee was being harassed for reporting the criminal conduct of numerous fbi agents as set forth in



In early 1971, the FBI's domestic counterintelligence program (code named "COINTELPRO") was brought to light when a "Citizens Committee to Investigate the FBI" removed secret files from an FBI office in Media, PA and released them to the press. Agents began to resign from the Bureau and blow the whistle on covert operations. That same year, publication of the Pentagon Papers, the Pentagon's top-secret history of the Vietnam War, exposed years of systematic official lies about the war.

More Comments from Ex-FBI Agent Geral Sosbee on Ted Gunderson

Barbara- gunderson is like a fire ant- he stings good but then he has nothing left to support his tiny vision.

His statement [Gunderson's accusation re Barbara Hartwell, in his open letter, 2005]:

"There are no alumni in the CIA. Once a CIA agent, always a CIA agent. If you attempt to get out or expose them, you either go to jail or you die" the rule, but you are proof that he is wrong; the same applies to me and the assassins of the fbi who are trying to kill me in the only cowardly manner they know. My question for gun is why he does nothing to expose the crimes against Humanity that are currently on going; and further, with his vast experience as a fbi chief, why he has not confessed to the world of his many crimes against the American people.


Succinctly, Ken Adachi is a malicious liar and a petty fraudster for writing the following statements about Geral Sosbee (regarding Gunderson, I have reason to believe that all statements written about him by my greatest friend, Barbara Hartwell, are true):

Adachi writes:

"...Barbara Hartwell's ... gets little coverage beyond Gerald Sosbee or Stew Webb or other government-controlled "whistleblower" flunkies. ...You can find most of my articles ... on my Ted Gunderson page".

Now, to wrap up this report, here are the names of those who have libeled/slandered and/or harassed and/or threatened legitimate government whistleblowers and journalists, including Barbara Hartwell, while promoting/supporting Ted Gunderson, and/or his minions and stooges.

By their fruits shall you know them.
