"Strange Tales of Homeland Security" in the latest Fortean Times

My latest article, “Strange Tales of Homeland Security,” is the cover feature of the most recent FORTEAN TIMES MAGAZINE (#305), the one with the September cover date.  If the issue’s not on the stands where you are now, it should be within a few days or so.  I highly encourage you to seek it out at your local Barnes & Noble (or any well-stocked newsstand).  “Strange Tales of Homeland Security” is a bizarre—but 100% true—first person journalistic account of government harassment taken to the nth degree.  This article covers a great deal in a relatively short space:  Homeland Security agents run amok in the Pacific Beach area of San Diego, the use of electromagnetic nonlethal weapons to torture homeless people, drug users and ex-prisoners in “America’s Finest City” (as the locals refer to San Diego), back-engineered optical camouflage technology misappropriated by Naval Criminal Investigative Services and a nefarious corporation called Science Applications International Corporation (which is based in San Diego), AWOL Marines, stolen Department of Defense laptop computers containing Above Top Secret information compiled by intelligence specialists stationed in the Persian Gulf, homicidal marijuana farmers, UFOs, invisible midgets—and much, much more.  I think it’s safe to say that, no matter what, you won’t be bored by the piece.

Here's what the cover looks like:
