Updated Readers Guide to Barbara Hartwell Vs. CIA

Barbara Hartwell vs. CIA is the one and only legitimate website of Barbara Hartwell.

The opposition --those who attempt to discredit, neutralize and generally destroy the good name, the efforts, the work, the livelihood and the person of Barbara Hartwell-- have engineered websites, "news groups", message boards and whatnot, using my name in the URL, or in special sections of their websites, which have also polluted the search engines with many libelous falsehoods about Barbara Hartwell.

There is also the issue of forgery, plagiarism and identity theft, in which certain criminals among this network of my adversaries regularly engage. So, I will state for the record that I, Barbara Hartwell, authorize ONLY this website, and ONLY the material published herein.

The enemies of Barbara Hartwell are for the most part government agents and officials (former and current.) These government rat bastards (as I call them) have, over a period of many years, also recruited hundreds of stooges, dupes, minions and useful idiots, whom they exploit to target legitimate government whistleblowers, journalists, patriots, government ops survivors, and sincere Christians, including Barbara Hartwell. Many of these workers of iniquity are exposed in considerable detail in reports on this site.

I will openly state, for the record, that anyone who is aligned with, affiliated with, in collusion with, or giving aid and comfort to, one or more of my enemies, is persona non grata to me. I am a straight arrow by nature and intent, and have no tolerance for liars, those who play spy-games, who meddle/interfere where they have no right, who do not respect the privacy/personal boundaries of others, who exploit the names of others for their own agenda, or who subscribe to the "enemy of my enemy is my friend" philosophy.

In fact, it's reached the point where I must, for my own protection and in my own defense, adopt the opposite philosophy: I must consider any "friends of the enemy" to be my enemies. Such is life, at least for me.

Who is The Enemy? Anyone and everyone who would violate in any way, shape or form, the God-given Unalienable Rights of others, individually and/or collectively. A very simple concept. Amen.


The main purpose of Barbara Hartwell vs. CIA is to present archives of the writings of Barbara Hartwell, including reports, articles, editorials; this site is meant first and foremost, to preserve the integrity of my work in one collection online.

As I have always done, I include the work of other authors which I find informative, valuable, or sometimes even just entertaining. So here's the old standby disclaimer: I do not "necessarily" endorse the viewpoints, the opinions or the credibility of the writings of other authors presented on this site.

This is not meant to be a "news site"; and although I have worked as a professional journalist, in both print and electronic media, for over 40 years (both "inside", under the auspices of CIA, and "outside", as an independent), I do not consider myself a member of the "alternative media." Heaven forbid!

My experiences with "alternative media" have been, for the most part, just as dreadful as with the mainstream media. Most are aggressive and unprincipled scavengers, shills and prostitutes, willing, and even eager, to sell out for personal ambition, ego-gratification and/or financial gain.
I have never been a "news reporter", but rather an advocacy journalist.

All material published on Barbara Hartwell vs. CIA is FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. The readers may make of it what they will. Caveat Lector.


Many reports are listed by title in the sections, SELECTED RECENT REPORTS & SELECTED REPORTS FROM ARCHIVES, on the left hand column of the site.

These archived reports have NOT been listed in chronological order, by date of original writing, nor by date of publication.

However, each report is dated at the end, along with my by-line and/or preceding the report itself. I also often include notes, brief commentaries, or an addendum, when I find that further information, clarification, corrections, or explanations are necessary.

For my purposes, the DATE OF WRITING is infinitely more significant than the date of posting. For various reasons, I often post articles that are years old; and the reports on this site span a time period of roughly a quarter century.

Most articles are time sensitive, at least from the perspective of the events/circumstances/situations of the period in which the article was written. Therefore, all reports should be considered in their proper context.

As far as the sorting of reports into categories, since there is quite an eclectic mix of reports, I've decided it is best not to impose any sort of rigid order. However, I have tried to keep the archives loosely organized, at least as regards general subject matter, for example, COINTELPRO; the Right to Privacy; Christian Commentary; MK Ultra; CIA; FBI, etc. etc.

Since I have exposed many criminals and government shills and stooges on this site, I've also tried to keep those reports together on the list, usually by the names of the perps, which are often included in the title.

Not all reports in the archives are listed in the designated sections in the left column, but you will find them ALL in the general archives, where they are listed by dates of posting (2006-present, for this website.) Again, it is important to know that the date of posting and date of original writing may differ, sometimes widely.

This section, titled Archives, may be found in the lower portion of the left column.

Titles usually reflect the content and subject matter, and titles where persons are named may be self-explanatory, at least in regard to the identities of the persons/subjects being addressed.


Something I find it very important to clarify: I speak about the political persecution being directed at me mainly to expose the outrages and crimes committed by the perpetrators. It's more about THEM than it is about me. I'm only one of their many Targets but I want to see justice done --FOR ALL OF US. It is very important to me that there is a public record of this persecution and the many injustices for which I have been targeted. In this way, I also build my case with documented testimony, facts and evidence.


Though I sometimes reveal certain personal information in my reports, and often find it important and necessary to express my personal feelings in order to make my point, I am careful to protect my privacy, security and safety as best I can.

There are those among my enemies who have violated my privacy (monstrous invasions of privacy!), compromised my security and endangered my safety through such unscrupulous (and in some cases, criminal) acts as publishing my PRIVATE, UNLISTED telephone numbers; and street address on the World Wide Web.

For the record, all personal contact information for Barbara Hartwell is, and shall remain, UNLISTED, UNPUBLISHED and PRIVATE. The exception is my postal mailing address, given at the top of this site.

It is very simply NOBODY'S BUSINESS, as to the location of my home. As for my private e-mail addresses and telephone numbers, they are for use by "authorized persons only." Case closed.

If there is anyone who feels it is urgent or otherwise important to contact me, for personal or professional reasons, you may easily do so through my postal address.

Back in the days when I had a public e-mail address, I found myself swamped with unsolicited messages, at times more than a thousand e-mails a week.

Mostly it was benign, but I also received too much hate mail for my taste, and lists of questions people seemed to think I was obligated to answer. Wrong!

Lastly, having a public e-mail address left me open to vicious and unrelenting harassment and threats by criminals and psychopaths. (Read all about it, including names of the perps, on this site!)

Aside from all this, I simply didn't (and still don't) have the time even to READ most of the messages, much less answer them.

I have found that requiring people to communicate by postal mail (the old fashioned way) weeds out most of the curiosity seekers, the "salesmen", the busybodies and the crazies.

One last item: For years, I have continued to receive, by post, thick files of "legal cases" with appeals from readers that I take on their cases, pro bono. I am not a licensed attorney, nor have ever made such a claim. I don't know where so many people got that idea, but I hope this sets the record straight.

Thank you for your consideration.
