You mean to tell me that it is legal for corporations from the private sector to team up with local law enforcement officials in efforts to spy on innocent members of our society? You also mean to tell me that the synthesis of law enforcement authority and the drive of for-profit companies operate under little to no guidelines or restrictions and it is unclear to whom they are responsible to?
Welcome to the world of fusion centers, where according to an article by Eric Schmitt of The New York Times, Surveillance Effort Draws Civil Liberties Concern:
A growing number of big-city police departments and other law enforcement agencies across the country are embracing a new system to report suspicious activities that officials say could uncover terrorism plots…
Bridging The Gap is a disturbing, yet poignant look into modern day democratic surveillance societies. The book examines how this structure is used to discredit, disenfranchise, and destroy innocent citizens.
Gang Stalking is a systemic form of control, which seeks to destroy every aspect of a Targeted Individuals life. A covert investigation is opened and the target is followed around 24/7 by Civilian Spies/Snitches. Overt and covert methods are used as part of the surveillance process.
The Informants can be parts of these community oriented policing programs, but often they are just average citizens. Just like with Cointelpro investigations, everyone in the targets life is contacted and asked to be a part of the ongoing, never ending monitoring (systemic harassment), which is designed to destroy the target over years and leave them with no form of support.

The CIA has much much much bigger fish to fry. This guy isn't unique enough and if we were to have this many agents working on an elaborate psychological torture program for every Iranian-American it would be like a frikkin 5th military branch is size! Way too expensive.
Anyway, the CIA takes you up in an airplane for "interrogation" and only if you are important.
If you believe everyone you'll fall for anything.

You are not crazy by any means. Three years ago I made a comment in myb own house. To make a long story short I was yelling at my wife's son about his alck of motivation in school. I was so frustrated with his attitude I blurted out I wish I had an M-60 with a couple of thousands behind it. I did not mean anything by it and ecer sense then I too have been followed people have been in my house. The house is also bugged but you won't find anything they can turn on you speakers to your TV, and your radio and computer speakers on. I also have tried to contact people for help and they tell me the same thing you are crazy they are not listening to us. After awhile after I figured out what they were doing I strated screwing with them I would follow them and mess with them.I would not do anything to get get the local cops invovled. I would just let them know I was there. I have at least 150 license plate numbers. Dates and time when they are following me. Now after three years sense they do not have anything on me they have resorted to spreading rumors about me. At my sons school,when I go home to see to see my family and even when I go to the doctor. So sir you are not alone to everybody else out there in the US becareful what you say because they are listening.

-I guess all I can say is try to put yourself in my shoes, For two and a half years they have put death gripping fear into me, They have broken me down several times, I am all by myself, I haven't told any of my family or friends
I know my story sounds crazy, I am well aware of this, and they have done a great job making me seem like a nut, I have tried contacting the FBI and CIA many times to tell them to stop and told them the many psychological symptoms I have experienced, I guess I was stupid for putting trust and faith in my government, At any time they can get local police involved and come put me in a mental hospital and make my parents suffer because they now will think their son is crazy, They can ruin my parents careers, they can ruin my brother's and sister's careers, I wish I could try to gather evidence on them, I wish I could tape them, but the ball is in their court, I can only beg them to stop and put faith in God that justice will prevail for me whether in this life or the next
And obviously I've thought of gathering evidence, but what could I do with this, could I take it to my local police? If anything I would bring on harassment from my local town police for me and my family, or I'd end up in a mental hospital. Also, this the CIA, (Or whatever government spy agency it is), I am sure all their trails are completely covered, For instance I am assuming my neighbors are married spy couples with no traces, this is not uncommon in the espionage world. (See article titles "Married Couple Spies" by LeRoy A. Stone* West Virginia University**)
As far as telling Nancy Pelosi or ACLU:
-I have emailed many politicians, including her, government agencies, and human rights organizations, including the ACLU
For those who say this could be any group, like racist college frat boys:

Third, believe it or not, but government agencies can obtain most if not all of your personal information pretty easily, they would not just harrass you for 36 months and going for absolutely nothing, so either you DO have something to hide, or your not telling us everything, or your just making this whole thing up?

Seek mental help. While it just doesn't seem like your story holds water, it also seems like if you were that important, something would have happened to you already. You know people end up in that special military prison for less, why would they let you trounce around and simple put all these supposed resources forward just to mess with you?
Might make for a good script for some hollywood movie, ut I just can't suspend my disbelief further.

I Was Tortured by the CIA
Nice sensationalist title to your little made up story - thanks for posting.
On a site like this, its bread and butter stuff, your guaranteed followers/believers that the Govt are out to get you. Well done, the first rule of advertisement is delivering to the right audience.
Now IF you had some information. Not a story of so called torture, but actual information that would back up your claims, like the sort of information that warrants CIA involvement, fine. But you don't.
All you've basically done is written a nice little story and chosen a receptive target audience.
I for one do not buy it - not for a second. IF you could offer some information as to why the CIA would have an interest in you, it would allow us to follow that up.
Paranoid delusions? who honestly knows. If that is the case, I at least hope those here believing your story are not reinforcing your state of mind.
As for being tortured by the CIA? I don't buy it for one second.

I am now convinced my suffering will not be ending anytime soon. I have lost all hope and have become very desperate.
My psychological symptoms keep worsen each passing day. To mention an example, lately I started to shake violently and uncontrollably in my bed at nights.
