But Obama Can't Defend THIS Bush-Cheney "legacy program"...



That is the number of counties or county equivalents in the U.S. that enable the constitutionally suspect covert implantation of GPS tracking devices in or under the vehicles of American citizens...

...citizens unjustly "targeted" under a secretive security/military/intel "multi-agency coordinated action program" comprised of citizen vigilantes and operating with the knowledge of co-opted and complicit local and federal law enforcement...

...a de facto American Gestapo that destroys the lives and livelihoods of their "targets" by means of a prescribed protocol of "community stalking" harassment; surreptitious home entries; vandalism; slander; financial sabotage; and, victims charge, silent assault with injury- and illness-inducing microwave and laser "directed energy weapons."

And no local or federal authorities will investigate, writing off victim complaints as "delusional" -- a Gulag tactic that has allowed this American politicide to "hide in plain sight"...
