Read the works of Dr. Colin Ross, they were all telling me, He has proven everything! CIA sex-slave producing mind-control programs, international conspiracies to cover-up crimes of Satanic cult activities, all proven beyond any reasonable doubt in the writings of this esteemed psychiatrist specializing in dissociation and trauma.
