Summary

A mesmerizing mix of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip K. Dick, Chameleo is a true account of what happened in a seedy Southern California town when an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict named Dion Fuller sheltered a US marine who'd stolen night vision goggles, and perhaps a few top secret files, from a nearby military base. Dion found himself arrested (under the ostensible auspices of The Patriot Act) for conspiring with international terrorists to smuggle top-secret military equipment out of Camp Pendleton. The fact that Dion had absolutely nothing to do with international terrorists, smuggling, top-secret military equipment, or Camp Pendleton didn't seem to bother the military. He was released from jail after a six day long Abu Ghraib-style interrogation. Subsequently he believed himself under intense government scrutiny and, he suspected, the subject of bizarre experimentation involving "cloaking" - electro-optical camouflage so extreme it renders observers practically invisible from a distance of some meters - by the Department of Homeland Security. Hallucination? Perhaps - except Robert Guffey, an English teacher and Dion's friend, tracked down and interviewed one of the scientists behind the project, codenamed Chameleo, an experimental technology that appears to have been stolen by the US Department of Defense and deployed on American soil. More shocking still, Guffey discovered that the DoD has been experimenting with its newest technologies on a number of American citizens. A condensed version of this story was the cover feature of Fortean Times magazine (September 2013).

Once You Start , You Won't Be Able To Stop

I listened to this book in two days ; that is the fastest I have ever listened to a book.
You might have to listen to it two times; the stories are so strange, I had a hard time believing it is non-fiction.
Very well written.
Very interesting and intriguing story.
I am definitely adding the physical copy to my collection.

Wow

This is fantastic. I've heard about group stalking and even heard and read about the invisibility tech talked about in this book. But putting into this context is just creepy.

Amazing story that keeps you wanting to hear more

I loved the book! It was terrifying but I still found myself laughing quite a bit throughout the story. Just a wild ride all the way through. I am grateful to the author for sharing this very personal and traumatic experience with the rest of us so that we can be made aware of the realities of some of these awful but true operations. Bless you Mr. Guffey for being such a good friend.

Great, Strange , true and poignant

Great story and I believe it 100%. I have been studying this stuff since Bill Coopers -Behold A Pale Horse- hit the shelves in 1991. This is another link and connection to the truth that they continue to hide from us. The depth of his much we have been lied too is unfathomable. It's time to wake up.

What did I just listen to?

One of my favorite authors Jacques Vallee recommended this book, so I of course read it immediately. But I am left wondering: what did I just read/listen to?! This is a bizarre, somewhat amateurish rambling tale that—honestly—at several points I thought might be a parody! Having finished it, I’m not sure if it was a bad and unfunny parody or just a goofy story.

Is it possible that Deon was really harassed? Sure! Is it possible that the government has invisibility suits? I guess! The ideas make sense for sure and it seems possible. But is it also possible that some or most of this was paranoid ranting by a drug addict? I think that is also possible.

Most importantly, even if everything is 100% true and as they hypothesize, where are we? In my opinion, we’re not really much further along. We know the government can do these things, right? I guess I just feel like I didn’t learn anything here.

Good read but expecting more.

I liked the concept, subject matter, and the black ops aspects of the story. I did not like how the majority of the book was just a written down conversation. It could have been done better and in a more entertaining way.

Awesome story

I was hooked after the first line of this story. I actually believe this happened, and think that it still does.
