Dear Keith B. Alexander, NSA
James Comey, F.B.I.
John Brennan, C.I.A.
and President Barack Obama,
This communication is a certified letter from novelist and dissident Kola Boof—sent individually to all of you. The date is March 23, 20014.
Gentlemen, I don’t mind my private space being under surveillance by the above agencies. I have nothing to hide. Since 2002, I’ve been under surveillance and never tried to resist surveillance. But what I don’t condone is the harassment, unlawful entry and abusive no-touch-torture and medical physical injury that’s been/being directed at me, perhaps by a rogue agent without the agency’s knowledge. I don’t like it and do not agree to it. I send you this communication as someone who despite being opinionated and committed to black women’s socio-political issues (perhaps seen as subversive by you) absolutely loves America, someone whose work and political voice has always been Pro-America, and as someone under the impression that those of you at the very top probably don’t know what illegal things your agents are out here perpetrating against opinionated though harmless insignificant artists like myself.
It’s well documented and publicly admitted by you (F.B.I., C.I.A. and N.S.A.) that via COINTELPRO your agents spied on, harassed and black-listed writers like Carlos Fuentes and Ernest Hemingway for decades; that you murdered Fred Hampton, drove to suicide actress-activist Jean Seberg and that in recent times your agencies target tens of thousands of people, including one of my idols, novelist Gloria Naylor. As a Targeted Individual myself, I refuse to be told I’m crazy or just imagining things. I am not. Though I am truly fearful of you and don’t understand how or why you would see me as an enemy after more than a decade of surveillance—I feel compelled to contact you and appeal to your sense of practicality.
I am begging your agencies to please (#1) Stop hacking my computers and distorting my photographs and video images to make me look “Ugly” and much older than I actually look in real life—it’s shockingly petty and immature and I believe my experts when they insist that only the NSA has the capability of accessing the hard drives of computers that are not connected to the internet to alter/read/steal files. I knew that Ceiling Tempest was installed in my home, but now I know what it does. Because I am vain and because Black women’s beauty is not fairly celebrated, I am especially outraged by this choice in cruelty. This type of violation feels like a mind-rape. You don’t have a clue…as to how much this hurts me as a person who has never been allowed (because of my race and sex) to have full and fair representation in this society. Your government-protected hackers have now vandalized literally 1,000 internet photos and all of my videos by applying a double wide nose, deep grooves and dark circles under my eyes, removing my famous cheekbones, darkening my skin, removing my makeup, lessening my smile and stretching and contorting my jaw-line and head shape to make me appear as if my face has no “symmetry” and more dare I say masculine. You apply horrific dark shadows in my videos where makeup would cover. These changes miraculously appear on the hard drive original versions of my technicians as well as the public postings such as YouTube and countless blogs because of your ability to use radio waves and Xss codes via Sky-drone/Ceiling Tempest and by breaking & entering into spaces unlawfully. The changes to the pics are often subtle. But there is a strongly racist vibe with the intent. What your hackers don’t realize is that I’m 23 years old in some of the photos you’ve taken and applied aging effects to. I have the originals of those which you searched for and couldn’t find. And even now at 45, I don’t look my age. It’s wrong for your experiments with photo/video manipulation to target U.S. citizens as guinea pigs.
Because I am a genius at marketing and mentally influencing people—and because you seem to want me discredited and not listened to by the public—I fully understand why you would want to create the illusion that I’m an Ugly bitter OLD black bitch in the public’s mind. Each of your agencies knows what the N.S.A. and F.B.I. had done to me in Mexico back in 2006. I carry that horrific pain and what you later paid Posr to do every day of my life. But on this one, I’ll fight you.
If you are not the ones doing this particular evil to me (and I don’t know who else is powerful enough to change 1,000 photos on the internet by injecting Xss code via radio waves onto each site)…but if you are not the one doing it despite having me under surveillance all these years because of Osama, then please find out who it is and stop them. You owe me that small kindness after what was done to me in Mexico.
(#2) Please stop controlling what Physician sees me for medical or cosmetic procedures. I have the right to pick my own doctors and not have your agents order people not to treat me. I’m convinced it was your agency/agencies who caused me to suddenly have brain cancer in 2008. Your new-age Cointelpro agents (I don’t know if it’s the NSA or the FBI or both since I was initially led to believe they were protecting me) tampered with my medications and stopped me from getting a tummy tuck. In 2014 I ask that you please let me find a good doctor who will remove my gall stones and not murder me as Posr warned me they would do. For fear of being murdered, I have not gotten medical care that I need. The paranoia and terror that you inflict is like a disease in itself. I always thought it would be Arab Muslim governments or oil conglomerates like Ludin (Sweden) out to kill me, not the U.S. government.
(#3) Please stop administering illegal searches of my various dwelling spaces and leaving Scare-Tactics like the strange wires hanging from my car last week. Paranoid, I called the bomb squad and looked like a fool. When Professor Derrick Bell visited a few years ago, you had someone break in while we were all gone and download folders on my father’s cell phone. It was one of the few times where everyone believed me because there was no explanation. The searches, the neighbors you send to knock on the door and disappear, strangers in cars waving at me and calling my Arab birth name when I run errands, slamming car doors at 2 a.m. and the strange music playing in my bedroom at 6 a.m. creep me out yet I can never talk to anyone because they’ll think I’m insane. Most of the public has never heard of Cointelpro. They don’t know what Organized Government Stalking is. But please stop. You know I don’t drink, I don’t do drugs, I’m a diabetic and I’m trying to have a happy family and a successful writing career. You’re wasting tax-payer’s money on an eccentric and opinionated black lady who’s a threat to nobody! I advocate for issues I believe in; I am very effective and influential. I’ve been in bed with men you absolutely hate. From 1997 to 2001, I donated $25,000 to the Nation of Islam’s “prison rehabilitation” program for Black men. But I am not an enemy of America. I love all human beings of every type, I’m a Capitalist and I have much wisdom, flair and knowledge to contribute. I had to reinvent myself to do that—so be it and so what. At the core of my message as an artist is a reverence for the acknowledgement of the full humanity of Black women and a desperate (yes, desperate) need to see my personal dreams realized. I come from the lowest, poorest, most abusive origins a person could crawl out from under. I am a fiery survivor and an orphan of the world. Why would you be against me being glamorous and successful after every wretched thing I’ve been through? How could I not be larger than life? And who could be so evil as to block me from peace and security? I am not America’s enemy. I am not remotely a threat. What I really want to do is cook, write novels and live well. You know what a recluse I am. You know how I hate being a public figure. But how else am I going to break through? This whole stalking and harassment routine is just a waste of your time. To study me does no good because I’m atypical. I’m a hybrid, an empath, a loner, a transplanted orphan and an eccentric.
(#4) I am fine with having my cell phone tapped, listened to. But please stop hacking my cell phone and downloading and making & sending bizarre phone calls of people I don’t know. Please don’t use radiation-shocks on me. Additionally, please stop my TWITTER and FACEBOOK from being hacked so often.
(#5) Please stop attempting to black-list me. If it’s not you, then please assist me in “tripping up” those entities that are trying to black-list me. Your constant watch on me means that you know who is out to get me. I know for a fact that you’ve arrested Arab Muslims who planned on killing me; you thwarted a ring of black male ex-cons who planned on beating me up and you fixed it so that I was the one and only passenger on a 747 airplane from Chicago to Detroit—escorting more than 200 people off when there was some kind of threat the details of which I was never told. But you seem to have a See-Saw routine; protective one week, abusive and extreme when you want to “study” and play mind games the next. Because I’m only human, it takes a toll despite my desire to pass your tests and be accepted by America. You misinterpret my desperation and struggle to establish a career as some other type of energy. Certainly you didn’t like what I did to Kimora Lee Simmons. But that was my business and it’s what women do. She has a new husband, I have a new husband—Djimon’s in the cold—I gave that bitch a taste of her own medicine and everything turned out fine. If she’s the one employing hackers to distort my photos/videos, then please stop her. But I doubt that either she or Russell Simmons have this level of power or that they would want to face the wrath of my own army.
(#6) I fully acknowledge the U.N. report from April 9th, 2003 in which it was disclosed that a Shariah Court in my birth country, Sudan, ordered me to be beheaded should I ever return because of my criticism of Islam and my relentless writing on the Arabization of African nations and the Arab slave trade and genocide against South Sudan. I fully acknowledge that the government in Khartoum/North Sudan hired international propaganda-expert David Hoile (who made his name doing smear campaigns against Nelson Mandela) to orchestrate smear campaigns to discredit me via Sudan’s P.R. organization, the ESPAC. I acknowledge that so called Bin laden expert, Peter Bergen has mounted a massive smear campaign against me due to his embarrassment of never having heard of me—culminating in his “uncivilized” attempts at stopping MSNBC’s 2-part interview with me “In Bed with Bin Laden” in 2006. After Bergen’s efforts failed at having me billed ‘alleged former mistress’ (MSNBC billed me as ‘former mistress of Osama Bin Laden’—without the word alleged), I acknowledge the racist/sexist “phone tag” campaign Peter Bergen implemented to discredit me among his fellow journalists. I acknowledge Bergen’s viral and very publicly expressed hatred towards me. I acknowledge that other entities (such as Sweden’s Ludin Oil, because of my spying and direct involvement in the destruction of Higlig PX-40 in Sudan) have paid huge sums of money to discredit me through smear campaigns. I acknowledge the death threats I receive from independent Muslims and Black American men outraged by my social war against COLORISM. But with all that—I still can’t account for the COINTELPRO-like actions of journalists like Dan Billin and the vicious Organized Government Stalking campaign he administered against me while I was ‘in hiding/under protection’ in Pomona, California. I cannot account for the strange actions of so called ‘friends’ I believe (rightly or wrongly) to be your Perps—Troy Johnson (aalbc.com), Posr A. Posr and Kay LaBreche. At times I’ve suspected that Linc, Tiffany, Ebony and Mark Fogarty are informants. I don’t know who to trust.
(#7)—In closing let me say that unlike most Americans….I have full personal knowledge of the greatly inhumane evils that the Arab Muslim Imperialists wish to inflict on America and the Non-Muslim world. I was born a Sunni Muslim, I am half Arab. I have been mistress to Hasan al-Turabi, Bin Laden and worked at White Bride for Khadafi and for Egypt’s President Mubarak at Sharm el Sheik as a hostess (paid party girl). I am well aware of the “mass holocaust dream” that powers Jihad despite so many American activists believing the U.S. government to be the world’s lone aggressor; the world’s only evil. Osama told me himself that after he conquered the earth to save us for Allah, my race (Africans) would mostly be exterminated with a few kept over for ‘slavery.’ I’ve overheard billionaire Mullahs gush with fantasies of poisoning America’s air and drinking water; talk of Arab super-weapons that they hope will someday make this entire planet a Muslim Empire. Because of that (and because I have lived in 12 countries and truly know that all mankind is evil), I feel very deeply that the C.I.A., the F.B.I. and the N.S.A. need to exist. I certainly understand why someone like me would be targeted on G.P. Security Protocol. But as a Womanist, an African woman who knows what it’s like to be raped and have no rights or ownership of my body whatsoever; someone who knows what it’s like to have no freedom of speech; no freedom to even name the source of your sorrow—I see America as the promised land; the best place to live in a world where there is no good place to live. I truly love this country and I truly want to contribute what is in me to contribute. I’m extremely imperfect; charismatic yet damaged. But I’m a great artist and I have a powerful will. I am not an enemy of America and I am not a threat. I implore you to please….please cease all punishment and abuse of me via what I know to be organized harassment, intimidation, stalking, smearing, slandering and medical and psychological tampering. Please accept me as Kola Boof and please don’t hurt or kill me.
