The Story of the Clearance Holder, the KGB, and Havana Syndrome

Originally published at:

In one of the more unusual Defense Office of Hearing and Appeals (DOHA) cases I have seen in quite a while, this defense contractor had held a security clearance since 2008 until it was revoked in 2021 due to concerns about the state of his mental health after he had reported he was potentially drugged…

Yiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiikes. Just yikes.

Wow. Imagine if this was your reality, firmly, passionately believing and feeling this?

Read a book called MadDog. Entire premise isvery much like this, told from his perspective. He firmly believes he is a prisoner in a gulag. The book plays it straight as he plots his escape…final pages pan outward from the prison…it is a mental institute. And all of his delusions are just that. Delusions.

You really buy in to the character, the story, etc.

I feel for anyone trapped in their own head.


I repeat. Yikes… Just yikes.
