Underground floors, rooftop lasers, and an NSA leak all point to spies on campus

Former Soviet leaders meet while a picture of a familiar face hangs on the wall.

Former Soviet leaders meet while a picture of a familiar face hangs on the wall.

I write this article with great fear that the information contained could lead to my demise. I will not divulge anything personal about myself except I am writing this between bookshelves in the library because I am convinced it is the only place that is safe from their watchful eye. Also, I’m skipping English 265.
Everyone knows about Edward Snowden revealing that the National Security Agency is conducting secret surveillance on U.S. citizens, which everyone kind of figured was happening anyway. But we just thought was the CIA or FBI.
Most people did not read the documents, but upon my browsing, I discovered that the University of Massachusetts Boston was briefly mentioned.
It was a minute intel, but it speculated that former leaders of the school were spies for the Soviet Union. Current ones are former-KGB agents still in regular contact with the FSB (which could be considered Russia’s present-day KGB).
The Snowden documents did not go into much detail, but I assume there is more information in the National Creeper Agency documents.
The intel in the released documents are speculation, so I did my own digging and my discoveries have me to believe there is truth to the theory that KGB agents are on campus — not only among us, but in the very top positions of departments such as the College of Science and Mathematics, the Office of Communications, and more.
Just observe the campus with your own eyes. UMass Boston’s facilities are a great location for spies to set up shop. The entire campus is isolated on its very own peninsula.
The underground parking lots are not sectioned off for students’ safety. No, it’s so meetings can take place in secrecy and and so layers of concrete can prevent satellite signals from penetrating.
Did you even know that UMass Boston has a radio station? Probably not, because the station is in the lower level of the Healey Library — that’s two floors below ground. From the outside, there is no hint these floors exist.
The windowless radio station only plays folk music to keep any and everyone from remotely being interested in checking out the radio station. For if a student did, they would soon discover the radio station is a guise to hide it’s true intention — a place where the secret agents receive and send messages from mother Russia.
The student who was reported lost in Wheatley a few weeks ago was not lost. He was on to something. He found something in that maze, which is designed specifically to keep anyone from snooping around. He was bullied and threatened to keep quiet or he would be forced to park at Bayside every day.
All of this construction… do you really think it’s so we can have a nice, pretty courtyard and some fancy, new buildings? No, it’s a ploy, a disguise, a façade so that the spies can get the resource, equipment, and materials to build a democracy destroying laser in the observatory on top of the Healey Library (which I bet you also didn’t know was there).
Now, the jaw dropper. It’s all led by Motley himself. Think about it. The man never gives interviews. Not to the Mass Media, not even to the Globe. What’s he hiding? I’ll tell you what. He’s a commie.
I must end my message here, for I believe staying in one place too long is dangerous. Also, I’ve got to go to my English class, even if I am late because I just remembered I already missed two classes and a third time could bring me down a grade.
I urge you to be aware. Keep your eyes open. The evidence is there. Do not be scared into staying quiet, for it will lead to the descent of true freedom. Speaking out loud will only get you kicked out of the library.
