ATLANTA, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While working as a senior officer on a secret government base, Shipp and his family were subjected to severe toxic exposure. They were bleeding from their noses, vomiting, had bruising all over their bodies, were bed-ridden with severe headaches requiring morphine, lost their short-term memory and suffered from strange rashes on the exposed areas of their skin. Doctor's diagnoses and environmental tests showed exposure to poisonous toxins. The house was quarantined – while workers in hazmat suits boxed up all of the family's belongings, including the children's toys, and took them away to be burned.
Their home was broken into, the family was spied on and followed, documents were altered and Shipp's career was threatened. He and his family filed a personal injury suit against the CIA. The CIA signed a court ordered mediated settlement. Two days later, the CIA refused to abide by the agreement, threatening that if the family did not accept a lower settlement – they would invoke the State Secrets Privilege.
After coercing a federal judge, the CIA used the privilege to shut the case down in a secret court and placed a seal on it. No one, not even his or her Congressman and Senator, could have access to the evidence. The family was threatened with jail if they discussed the case with anyone.
Chapter 26 of Shipp's book discusses the ensuing cover-up. The CIA blacked out the majority of the chapter. The book was reviewed by the CIA and approved for publication. Shipp built a code into the manuscript revealing the cover up.
