Using Psychology and trends based on Psychological assessments are dangerous and irresponsible in dealing with safety.

Peace Corps has fired thousands of Volunteers using Psychologists and so called experienced Psychiatrists. They (Peace Corps) feel these Contracted Peace Corps Doctors will bring the diagnosis they want. They used these techiques with thousands of safety incidents which were misdiagnosed. They have lied about volunteer's services by using the strong arm of the governmental structure.

Recently, in a article,'s journalist quoted an infamous Psychiatrist which has fired hundreds of volunteers abitrarily and capriciously and basically has claimed to know what volunteer's experineced around the world. He was quoted by saying, that Dennis Priven, a so called Patient of his under Peace Corps care went 000hooo! when he allegedly killed another volunteer. No matter if he was right or wrong in this case. So called Dr. Zigmond Lebensoln broke confidentality with his patient by doing that article.

We want a GAO report on how many separations were done or attributed to this Doctor and others Peace Corps used to fire volunteers who have gone through Safety incidents. These so called Doctors have backed up medical and other staffers who fired volunteers and blamed them for their incidents.

We will get a GAO report on these bogus separations. The ACLU will be involved.

Communist countries used these techniques on writers,poets, and activists. Stalin tactics don't work in a free society.
