I forwarded the following letter to the Medical Director of the George Washington University Medical Center in October 1994. I copied the letter to the FBI. The letter discusses law enforcement issues of alarming concern. Did Dr. Ghezzi discuss the letter with anyone? Who did he speak with? What was the content of the communications?
The FBI referred the letter to the U.S. Secret Service for investigation. I met with S.A. Philip C. Leadroot at the Washington, D.C. Field Office of the U.S. Secret Service in mid-December 1994, more than two months later. S.A. Leadroot advised me in early February 1995 that he had completed his investigation. Agent Leadroot and I had a coffee and a chat at a coffee shop at 1050 Connecticut Avenue in early February 1995. I still remember S.A. Leadroot asking me: "Do you drink regular or the fru-fru kind?" Such were the Secret Services' concerns about my letter.

Dear Dr. Gheezi:
I am in receipt of Dr. Wiener’s letter dated October 4, 1994. I am disheartened by his summary dismissal of my detailed and objective concerns, stated in my letter to Dr. Georgopoulos dated August 29, 1994, regarding the psychological testing performed by the Department of Psychiatry in May 1994.
I would like to review the following facts with you.
1. The government of the District of Columbia has determined that I am paranoid, potentially violent, and unemployable.
2. My direct supervisor at my former place of employment, the law firm of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, Mrs. Christine Robertson, advised her employees in late October 1991 that I may be armed and homicidal.
3. I have forwarded numerous correspondence, since November 1992, to the George Washington University Medical Center Department of Psychiatry detailing my fantasies centering on brutal multiple homicides 1/, presidential assassinations 2/, and overthrowing of the government 3/.
Were the Federal Bureau of Investigation or other law enforcement agency to request from the Medical Center information regarding my propensity for violent conduct the Medical Center would be unable to respond. Am I manic-depressive? Am I paranoid? Am I neither manic-depressive or paranoid as indicated by the failure of the tests to yield any diagnosis? Am I potentially violent? Did I lie on the tests, as alleged by the test evaluator, thereby concealing a grave and potentially dangerous paranoid disorder? Am I entitled to a second assessment as suggested by Dr. Pitts? Should I be taking an anti-depressant or tranquilizer as recommended by Yu-Ling Han? Will an anti-depressant or tranquilizer trigger a manic or paranoid psychosis as stated by Dr. Pitts? Was Lithium effective as Dr. Pitts stated? Did Lithium “not work” as Dr. Pitts stated . . . ? So flawed is the psychological testing performed by the Department of Psychiatry and so nonsensically contradictory are the psychiatric evaluations prepared by the Department that Dr. Wiener could provide no useful information to an interested law enforcement agency.
It is indeed disheartening that if the Federal Bureau of Investigation needed to satisfy itself that I am not a threat to the life of the President of the United States, the Bureau could not do so based on the indecipherable information emanating from a department of psychiatry headed by the President of the American Psychiatric Association.
