This timeline will demonstrate the US government and the military industrial complex involvement and the state of the technology from several independent unclassified reliable sources. This is a sample of the sources of information on this topic. These topics need further investigation.
From Cybernetics by Norbert Weiner, Weiner is the originator of cybernetics. New York Times wrote this comment about the book. "One of the most influential books of the twentieth century... Cybernetics was judged by twenty-seven historians, economists, educators, and philosophers to be one of those books published during the "past four decades," which "most significantly altered the direction of our society..."
A quote from this book, "This existence of sharp frequencies in brain waves and the theories which I gave to explain how they are originated, what they can do, and what medical use may be made of them represent in my mind an important and new breakthrough in physiology. Similar ideas can be used in many other places in physiology and can make a real contribution to the study of the fundamentals of life phenomena."
The book further states: "The neclkeus of our meetings has been the group that had assembled in Princeton in 1944, but Drs. McCulloch and Fremont-Smith have rightly seen the psychological and sociological implications of the subject and have co-opted into the group a number of leading psychologists, sociologists, and anthropologists. The need of including psychologists had indeed been obvious from the beginning. He who studies the nervous system cannot forget the mind, and he who studies the mind cannot forget the nervous system.
Weiner also writes, "I had known for a considerable time that if a national emergency should come, my function in it would be determined largely by two things: my close contact with the program of computing machines developed by Dr. Vannevar Bush, and my own joint work with Dr. Yuk Wing Lee on the design of electric networks.
And finally, "Dr. Rosenblueth at a meeting held in New York in 1942, under the auspices of the Josiah Macy Foundation, and devoted to problems of central inhibition in the nervous system. Among those present at that meeting was Dr. Warren McCulloch of the Medical School of the University of Illinois, who had already been in touch with Dr. Rosenblueth and myself, and who was interested in the study of the organization of the cortex of the brain.
In Dr. Becker's book Crosscurrents, 1990, Jeremy P. Tarcher, Inc.,p220 he writes about Dr. Weiner, "As a result of these comments(fluctuations of magnetic fields of the earth may cause undesirable behavioral changes), I was contacted by Dr. James Hamer of Northrop Space Laboratories, who informed me that his group was already involved in this area. He also noted that Dr. Norbert Weiner of MIT, the originator of cybernetics, had been interested in the same subject. Weiner had been involved in a German experiment in which human volunteers were unknowingly exposed to a low-intensity, 10-Hz electrical field. The subjects reported feelings of unease and anxiety when the fields were turned on. Both Hamer and Weiner were working under the assumption the ELF internal rhythms in the brain were determinants of behavior, and that pulsing external fields could "drive" these internal rhythms, thereby altering behavior."
Central Intelligence Agency is formed.
From Time," Lost Prisoners of War: "Sold Down the River"? September 30, 1996 p45, House National Security Subcommittee hear about newly declassified intelligence reports and other documents and testimony of U.S. Army Colonel Philip Corso and Major General in the Czech army, Jan Sejna. "There were few doubters"... about the fact that POWs were used as guinea pigs in experiments. "Sejna testified that the Czechs, on orders from Moscow, built a military hospital in North Korea during the war. The "secret purpose of the hospital," he said, "was to experiment on American and South Korean POWS." Prisoners were used to test the effects of "chemical- and biological-warfare agents," atomic radiation and "various mind-control drugs."
From International Defense Review, Vol 23; No.8, "Biological Weapons; How big a threat?" by Dr. T White and Dr. K. White, August 1,1990. p843. "The shock of seeing American prisoners of war denounce their country after they had been brain-washed by their North-Korean and Chinese captors prompted the CIA to launch its now infamous 'MK-Ultra' project. The aim of this research was to discover the techniques and 'mind-control' drugs being used by the Chinese to subvert their American prisoners. In the course of the ICA-funded investigation, American and Canadian citizens were used as guinea pigs in experiments that have been compared with the German medical experiments in the 'death camps'."
From The Puzzle Palace, James Bamford, 1982, Penquin, p15. November 4, 1952. The NSA, a new federal agency came into existence. "No news coverage, no congressional debate, no press announcement, not even the whisper of a rumor. Nor could any mention of the new organization be found in the Government Organization Manuel or the Federal Register or the Congressional Record. Equally invisible were the new agency's director, its numerous buildings, and its ten thousand employees."
From Electromagnetism and Life, Dr. R.O. Becker, p.227. "The possibility that the Soviet Union might be ahead of the USA in EM weapon systems has persisted at least since the discovery of the irradiation of the US Moscow Embassy in 1953." And in the Washington Times, Nov 15, 1992, "The Russian Government is continuing to bombard the U.S. Embassy in Moscow with microwave radiation, according to U.S. officials." The pulsed "emanations originate from a residential building across the street that is believed to be staffed by Russian security officials." In 1976, the Globe reported that Ambassador Walter Stoessel "developed a rare blood disease similar to leukemia and was suffering headaches and was suffering bleeding from the eyes. Two of his irradiated predecessors, Ambassador Charles Bohlen and Ambassador Llewellyn Thompson, died of cancers."
And further, from The Zapping of America, by Paul Brodeur, W.W. Norton and Co., 1977. The investigation of this "moscow signal" was call Project Pandora and "information about it was parceled out on a strict "need to know" basis..." "In addition, the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA)-a highly secret organization within the Department of Defense, which was engaged in developing a wide variety of electromagnetic weaponry, including electronic sensors and other devices that were designed to detect enemy movement on the Ho Chi Minh Trail and elsewhere in Vietnam-set up a special laboratory at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, in Washington, DC where, over a number of years, experiments were conducted in which rhesus monkeys were irradiated with microwaves at power densities and frequencies similar to those of the Moscow Signal." (Mr. Brodeur published part of his book in The New Yorker.)
From Washington Post, Aug7 1977, "Psychic Spying? The article discussed Dr. Andrija Puharich. "His connections with the military/ intelligence communities go back to the eary 1950s when he worked in the Army's Chemical and Biological Warfare Center at Ft. Detrick, Md., site of the CIA's now famous shellfish toxin repository. He presented a paper entitled "On the Possible usefulness of Extrasensory Perception in Psychological Warfare to a Pentagon conference in 1952 and later lectured the Army, Air Force and Navy on other possibilities for mind warfare. Expert in hypnotism as well as microelectronics, Puharich also invented a miniature tooth radio, reportedly for the CIA."
From The Mind Manipulators, Alan W. Scheflin,1978, Paddington Press, Ltd. p 348, On tracking humans such as prisoners, he writes, "During the Nixon administration, the United States government was sufficiently intrigued by the possibilities of tracking (both with and without ESB,(Electronic Stimulation of the Brain)) to commission a report on the state of the art and the pertinent law. It chose as its reviewer Ralph K Schwitzgebel, the leading experimenter on tracking, then a researcher at Harvard University. He reported that tracking was close to being practical and effective, and that is was legally acceptable."
From Psychic Warfare, Martin Ebon, 1983, McGraw Hill, p12. A (1972) report by Defense Intelligence Agency stated, "the major impetus behind the Soviet drive to harness the possible capabilities of telepathic communications, telekinetics and bionics is said to come from the Soviet military and the KGB."
From The Body Electric, Dr. R. O Becker, p321 The following research plan was released under the Freedom of Information Act. "The experimenter, J.F. Schapitz, stated: "In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of the hypnotist may also be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain-i.e., without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously." As a preliminary test of the general concept, Schapitz proposed recording the brain waves induced by specific drugs, then modulating them onto a microwave beam and feeding them back into an undrugged person's brain to see if the same state of consciousness could be produced by the beam alone."
"...The second experiment was to be the implanting of hypnotic suggestions for simple acts, like leaving the lab to buy some particular item, which were to be triggered by a suggested time, spoken word, or sight. Subjects were to be interviewed later. "It may be expected," Schapitz wrote, "that they rationalize their behavior and consider it to be undertaken out of their own free will."
And in Lobster Magazine an article by Martin Cannon states: "Schapitz' work was funded by the Department of Defense. Despite FOIA requests, the results have never been revealed." Further, "His (Schapitz') instincts on this latter point (rationalizing their behavior) coalesce perfectly with findings of professional
hypnotists.66 In the same article in footnote 66, "See Bowart p 218 (Operation Mind Control) for an interesting example. This rationalization process at work in the case of Sirhan Sirhan, who was convicted of the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. In prison, Sirhan was hypnotized by Dr. Bernard Diamond, who instructed Sirhan to climb the bars of his cage like a monkey. He did so. After the trance was removed, Sirhan was shown tapes of his actions. He insisted that he 'acted like a monkey' of his own free will-he claimed he wanted the exercise!"
From Crosscurrents, Dr. R.O. Becker, 1990,p224, "Since the mid-1970s, (Jose) Delgado has been director of the premier Spanish neurophysiological laboratory, Centro Ramon y Cajal. His interest has shifted from direct electrical stimulation of the brain to the broader area of the biological effects of electromagnetic fields. He has studied the influence of specific frequencies of magnetic fields on the behavior and emotions of monkeys, without using any implanted electrodes or radio receivers. While Delgado did not publish any of this work in the scientific journals, its existence leaked out."
From The Zapping of America, Paul Brodeur, 1977, p 300-301. "A report published in the New York Times on October 30, 1976, revealed that in recent months a mysterious broadband, short-wave radio signal had been broadcast intermittently from the Soviet Union. The signal was so powerful that it disrupted radio and telecommunications throughout the world." "Dr. Zaret is concerned about the Russian signal, ..because of its potential hazard to human beings. ..it was very clear that such an encoding impressed onto carrier wavelengths could have a central-nervous- system effect."
From Body Electric, Becker 1985, p323. Complaints from the UN International Telecommunications Union have not stopped the signal. The signal now has holes and skips crucial, (emergency frequencies for aircraft, etc.) frequencies as it moves up and down the spectrum.
From NBC Magazine with David Brinkley, July 16, 1981, p3. David Brinkley states: "As I say I find it hard to believe, it is crazy and none of us here knows what to make of it: the Russian Government is known to be trying to change human behavior by external electronic influences. We do know that much. And we know that some kind of Russian transmitter is bombarding this country with extreme low frequency radiowaves."
From p13-14, the article further states. "This man's name is William Bise. ...for the past four years he has traveled the Pacific Northwest monitoring strange radio signals." Garreck Utley asks "To what extent can you disrupt the mental process, the brain through the use of electronic fields, microwaves? Bise replies, "Will I would think that the easiest way to do it would be microwaves." Garreck Utley stated, "Bise has limited equipment but other sources, some of them classified, have traced the signals to transmitters in the Soviet Union. Those sources will not discuss their work. Bise will."
From Planetary Association for Clean Energy, July 1979, Newsletter by Dr. Andrew Michrowski, "USSR ELF (extremely low frequency) Emissions." "At least five USSR installations are operating simultaneously up to 24 hours daily since July 1976, with an intensity of up to 40 million watts. The installations appear to liase with the highly magnetic MHD apparatus located at Semipalatinsk" Non-Hertzian, resonant effects are produced. Because of this, their mathematical description is non-linear and based on the physics concepts of solitonfields that demonstrate prolonged states of existence." There are psychophysical, and physical effects. The signals have the unique capacity to penetrate buildings and living tissues. Magnetic intensity (at 500 microgauss) for such frequencies have been monitored.
This and other evidence suggests that the Soviet Woodpecker signal "entrain and capture the brains of the biosystems by placing them in forced sympathetic resonance."
This also corresponds with research of Dr. Ross Adey, of University of California's Brain Research Institute who conducted research on emf and brainwaves and confirmed that brainwaves could be entrained to externally generated signals. His work was funded by the U.S. Navy.(The Zapping of America, Brodeur,p84 and Body electric, Becker, p319)
From Mind Wars by Ron McRae,1984, St. Martin's Press. McRae worked with Jack Anderson. The book states, "In 1976, the CIA contracted for an exhaustive review of Soviet parapsychology research by outside experts," The report was titled, "Novel Biological Information Transfer Systems" by Dr. J.W. Eerkens, et al and Dr. Eerkens "now believes 'the Soviets are actually building prototype equipment for psychic warfare'.
From Zapping of America,1977, Paul Brodeur,p298. An article in the New York Times, July 20, 1977 stated, "CIA documents revealed that the agency had conducted a fourteen-year program to control human behavior with drugs, electric shock, radiation, and ultrasonics."
From Psychic Warfare by Martin Ebon,1983, McGraw-Hill, p116-117. "Public evidence for an attempt at influencing U.S. officials during a visit abroad was presented by Dr. Sidney Gottlieb on September 21, 1977, during testimony before a Senate sub-committee. Dr. Gottlieb, then retired, had been the CIA's director of mind-control experiments." "He told the committee that...several members of President Nixon's staff had shown 'inappropriate' behavior." Including "crying without provocation."
"In other parts of his testimony, Gottlieb did include the President himself among those who seemed to be affected by some type of unusual influence. Gottlieb stated, "Not too long ago, in connection with a presidential visit to a potentially hostile country, the President, when he came back, described some unusual feeling he and others had and asked if I would be able to give counsel." "(President Nixon visited a 'potentially hostile' country the Soviet Union in 1972.)"
From audiotape by Dr. Andrija Puharich at an Electromagnetic Conference, September 1987. "We were able to develop a hearing device that fit under the cap of a tooth and we could hear very clearly from a small little relay and receiver and transmitter and unfortunately it was promptly classified by an agency of our government. But we did solve the problem in terms of hardware. "About ten years ago in 1976, no I'm sorry early 1977 I made the basic measurements which showed the elf nature of elf coming from Russia and that it was psychoactive, that was my finding and I deduced the chemicals that were released by the frequencies that were being used and I passed that information onto every intelligence agency we have in this country from the president on down and England and Canada and all I got was four years of harassment. My house was burned down, I was shot at, they tried to kill me, they tried to eliminate me, etc., etc., and finally they agreed I was right and in 1981, the U.S. government went into full scale elf warfare and set up all their big transmitters down under in Australia and Africa so on and so on and now their in business and everything's classified and you can't say a god damned thing about it, a tough situation. And you can't get any real information out of any government agency. And I know all of them that do the work. I know the people who head the projects etc. When they're in trouble, they usually come ask me. And they classify what I tell them. Insanity."
From Planetary Association For Clean Energy, 1978, Dr. Andrew Michrowski. "Potentially, almost anything could be inserted into the target brain mind systems, and such insertions would be processed by the biosystems as internally-generated data/effects. Words, phrases, images, sensations, and emotions could be directly inserted and experienced in the biological targets as internal states, codes, emotions thoughts and ideas," This conclusion developed in part out of research by the Russian scientist, Litisitsyn's 1968 US Defense Documentation Center paper. Retired Col Tom Bearden commented on the paper which reported the Soviets "worked out 23 EEG band-wave lengths, 11 of which were totally independent."
From US Psychotronics Association. Conference 1979 Dr. Beck then read excerpts of a scientific research paper co-authored by Dr. MA Persinger of Laurentian University, Canada, an expert on elf radiation. "Human subjects exposed to certain ELF field patterns report sensations of uneasiness, depression, forboding..." Dr. Beck, a physicist who measured the Soviet Woodpecker signal stated, we found the Soviet signal coming in like gangbusters.. ...right in the window of human psychoactivity"
From Military Review (official publication of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College) article on "The New Mental Battlefield" Lt. Col. John B. Alexander, U.S. Army, Ph.D.. "(Soviet) mind-altering techniques, designed to impact on an opponent are well-advanced. The procedures employed include manipulation of human behavior through the use of psychological weapons effecting sight, sound, smell, temperature, electromagnetic energy, or sensory deprivation." He further stated, "Soviet researchers, studying controlled behavior, have also examined the effects of electromagnetic radiation on humans and have applied these techniques against the U.S. Embassy in Moscow."
Also, "Researchers suggest that certain low-frequency (ELF) emissions possess psychoactive characteristics. These transmissions can be used to induce depression or irritability in a target population. The application of large-scale ELF behavior modification could have horrendous impact."
From The Weekend Guardian, "Field of Nightmares", Peter Kennard, Feb. 2-3 1991. "In 1982 a US Air Force Review of Biotechnology stated: Radiofrequeny radiation (RFR) fields may pose powerful and revolutionary anti-personnel military threats...RFR experiments and the increasing understanding of the brain as an electrically-mediated organ suggests the serious probability that impressed electromagnetic fields can be disruptive to purposeful behavior and may be capable of directing and or interrogating such behaviour. Further, the passage of approximately 100 milliamperes through the myocardium can lead to cardiac standstill and death, again pointing to speed-of light weapons effect. A rapidly scanning RFR system could provide an effective stun or kill capability over a large area."
The article further states, "There is little doubt that crowd control devices using Radio Frequency Radiation do exist. The development of such devices would complement Sonic and infra-red weapons, which are well known, and were advertised in the British Defense Equipment Catalogue until 1983. These included the Vaikyrie, an infra-red device causing night blindness and the Squawk Box or Sound Curdler, developed by the US for use in Viet Nam. The Squawk Box was designed to induce feelings of giddiness and nausea in the victim, and is highly directional, so that as individuals are hit by the invisible effect, distress and confusion is spread amongst a crowd." "..In 1984 the Ministry of Defense ordered that all advertisements and references to 'frequency weapons', be cut from the Defense Catalogue."
From The Body Electric, by R.O. Becker,1985, p 323-4. The Russian Woodpecker signals are transmitted at frequencies "between 3.26 and 17.54 megahertz" and sounds like a woodpecker or buzz saw. It is pulse modulated at a rate of several times a second, "in the extreme low frequency (ELF) range." The Woodpecker acts as an over-the horizon radar. "The signal is maintained at enormous expense from a current total of seven stationsthe seven most powerful radio transmitters in the world."
From The Boston Globe, July 7, 1989. Larry Collins, author of a fiction book about mind control. "Collins research on the theories of the paranormal and brain and behavior modification is impressive. ...He began his writing career as a correspondent for UPI and Newsweek." He interviewed William Casey, CIA director and asked "Could we influence human emotions and behavior; are or were such experiments now going on?" "This is not a subject we're going to discuss with you or anyone else," he quoted Casey as saying. "Casey's pro forma response was enough for Collins. "I knew I was on the right track."
From The Nation, "Zapped? radiation at Greenham Common peace camp", editorial by Louis Slesin, p313. Nuclear protesters against the placement of cruise missiles at the USAF base in southern England claim that they were harassed with non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation in order to get them to stop protesting. In support of their claim, the author, editor of the publication Microwave News, stated, "In The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, published in 1979, John Marks relates that in response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the CIA told him that it had a roomful of files on electromagnetic and related techniques to alter behavior and stimulate the brain. The agency refused to release the papers, and they remain classified." The protesters described agonizing headaches and unexplained anxiety among other symptoms.
From U.S. News and World Report, U.S. News Investigative Report, Jan 24, 1994, p 34. "The analogy to brainwashing was obvious to the CIA which provided a $60,000 grant through the Human-Ecology Society. Nine of Cameron's former patients, who had sought treatment for depression, alcoholism and other problems at the Allen Memorial Institute at McGill University,(in Canada) where Cameron was director, filed lawsuit against the CIA in 1979. One patient, Rita Zimmerman, was 'depatterned' with 30 electroshock sessions followed by 56 days of drug-induced sleep. It left her incontinent; other suffered permanent brain damage, lost their jobs or otherwise deteriorated. The case, Orlikow v U.S. was settled in 1988 for $750,000."
From The Washington Times, "Mills mixes mind control matters," by Harvey Hagman, October 12, 1990, pE1 James Mills wrote The Power, a fictional account of psychic weapons. "The former UPI reporter and associate editor of Life magazine says he spent 3 ½ years researching and writing The Power including ferreting out Defense Intelligence Agency documents and traveling to France and the Soviet Union. ...So does Mr. Mills really believe 'spiritual warfare' is being waged? "Absolutely," he says. and so do the Pentagon and the Kremlin. ...There are documented cases of suspected KGB paranormal attacks against Nixon and Carter."
Excerpt from Larry King Live September 12, 1990, Transcript 127.
James Mills, author of The Power. "It is based on alot of research. I have three Defense Intelligence Agency studies that are in large measure an assessment of the Soviet threat in this area. They say that there is a possibility that Soviet advances in psychic weaponry would enable them to, and there are direct quotes, 'mold the thoughts at a distance of key military and civilian leaders, cause the death at a distance of key military and civilian leaders, cause the death at a distance of key military and civilian leaders, know the contents of top secret documents, troop movements, locations of military installations.' This report was produced in 1975 so this is what they were worried about then and it makes you wonder where we have come since then."
Mr. Mills states further, "I know for a fact that the Soviet Union had a mind control device that they said had military applications. They said it was valuable for reducing what they call neural tension in combat troops and which could certainly be used to reduce the aggressiveness and energy of our troops. I know that, because I've seen the machine. ...The one I've seen is a very, very old one. ...It came over from the Soviet Union in the mid-1970s to an American government research lab on the west coast. ...It used heat, sound, and light radiation, and very high frequency electromagnetic radiation to affect the central nervous system and affect mental processes."
From The Atlantic, "The Zap Gap", March 1987, Chuck de Caro, p 24-28. "Soviet Military Power, Department of Defense, "Recent Soviet developments in radio frequency generation devices could enable them to build weapons to degrade or destroy electronics or cause disorientation of personnel. They have generated single pulses with peak power exceeding one gigawatt and repetitive pulses over 100 megawatts." The article also states, "If, going further, an RF pulse could be propagated over a wide zone, in roughly the same way that radio signals can blanket a city, it might act as an electronic wall, disabling the silicon brains of any approaching airplane, tank, or missile."
From Crosscurrents,1990, Dr. Becker, p304. "I have made no attempt here to review in any detail the relationship between military considerations and the hazards of man-made electromagnetic fields. This complex and dangerous situation lies outside the scope of this book, except for an indication of how the political policies derived from it have effectively hampered the public recognition of the hazards. In my opinion, the military establishment still believes that the survival of the military organism is worth the sacrifice of the lives and health of large segments of the American population."
From Time, July 30, 1990, Technology,p53, "Hidden Hazards of the Airwaves, An obscure newsletter uncovers the perils of the information age". "In the current issue of Microwave News, Slesin has printed what may be his greatest scoop: the key paragraph of a two-year Environmental Protection Agency Study recommending that so-called extremely low-frequency fields be classified as 'probable human carcinogens' alongside such notorious chemical toxins as PCBs, formaldehyde and dioxin.' The recommendation, which could have set off a costly chain of regulatory actions, was deleted from the final draft after review by the White House Office of Policy Development. "The EPA thing is a stunner," says Paul Brodeur, a writer for the New Yorker.
"It's a clear case of suppression and politicization of a major health issue by the White House."
The article states further, "Louis Slesin's stories have a tendency to shock. Like the one about the 23 workers of the Bath Iron Works in Bath, Me, who got 'sunburns' one rainy day when someone on a Navy frigate flicked on the ship's radar. Or the trash fires that start spontaneously from time to time near the radio and TV broadcast antennas in downtown Honolulu. Or the pristine suburb of Vernon, NJ., that has both one of the world's highest concentrations of satellite transmitting stations and a 'persistent' and unexplained-cluster of Down's syndrome cases."
From The Sacramento Bee, "Energy Chief says U.S. owes radiation victims," Wed Dec. 29, 1993, pA1. "The U.S. government should compensate victims of radiation testing conducted as part of its Cold War nuclear program, Energy Secretary Hazel O'Leary said Tuesday as disclosures mounted about extensive experiments involving humans as often-unwitting subjects."
From "Nonlethal Technology and Airpower: A winning Combination for Strategic Paralysis" by Maj. J. W. Klaaren, USAF and Maj. RS Mitchell, USAF, Air Command and Staff College, 1993, Air University Press, Center for Aerospace doctrine, Research and Education, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama. This article is an excerpt from a research project by the authors et al. It states, "Currently, the best method of accomplishing this is to have developers of nonlethal weapons (agencies such as the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), military laboratories, and national laboratories) visit the operational commands. We need to stress how these weapons will be force multipliers and ..."
The article further states, "In 1993, for example, ARPA provided grant money to regional business alliances. Comprised of civilian-sector businesses and government organizations, these alliances competed for grants to develop new technologies... The scope of this program could be expanded to include nonlethal technology..." And also, "Although the United States may choose not to pursue mind-altering drugs as a weapon, other states may hold a different view. For that reason, it is imperative that we understand this capability."
The article concludes "We maintain that future conflicts will demand the use of nonlethal warfare and that aerospace platforms can provide an effective method for the employment of nonlethal weapons. ...Our research for this article was an eye-opening experience for us." The article lists in "Table 1 Selected Types, Examples, and Capabilities of Nonlethal Weaponry" and under "Electromagnetic Electrical interferors (power effects, pulses) degrade/destroy equipment and systems"
The article lists sources including, "Alan W. Debban, "Disabling Technologies and Applications, " HQ USAF/XOXT background paper, 22 February 1993; Herbert H. Dobbs et al., "Assessment of Mission Kill Concept, Requirements and Technologies" Washington, DC: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, September 1990); And finally, in the Notes of the article is the following: "1. John B. Alexander, Los Alamos National Laboratory, NM, presentation on nonlethal weapons and limited-force options, Council on Foreign Relations, New York, 27 October 1993."
From Defense Week DW Vol. 14, Nu 46 p1, "Non-lethal Weapons Group Set To Form In March", Andrew Weinschenk, "The Army plans to appoint a senior advisory group in March to guide development of 'non-lethal' weapons and draft a first-ever masterplan detailing future doctrine, training and materiel issues, according to service and industry sources." The article also states, "The Army Research Laboratory's Steve Taulbee, for example, said researchers there have experimented with a radio-frequency pulsing device. The weapon would disrupt an enemy's internal organs but it might also permanently destroy the liver.
From Defense Electronics, July 1993, "DOD, Intel Agencies Look at Russian Mind Control Technology, Claims FBI Considered Testing on Koresh." by Mark Tapscott. "In a series of closed meetings beginning March 17 in suburban Northern Virginia with Dr. Igor Smirnov of the Moscow Medical Academy, FBI officials were briefed on the Russian's decade-long research on a computerized acoustic device allegedly capable of implanting thoughts in a person's mind without that person being aware of the source of the thought."
From Defense News, Jan 11-17, 1993, "U.S. Explores Russian Mind-Control Technology" by Barbara Opall, p29. "The Russian authors note that "World opinion is not ready for dealing appropriately with the problems coming from the possibility of direct access to the human mind." And further, "The Russian experts, including George Kotov, a former KGB general now serving in a senior government ministry post, present in their report a list of software and hardware associated with their psycho-correction program that could be procured for as little as $80,000."
From The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, Sept, Oct 1994, "The Soft Kill Fallacy", Steve Aftergood with Barbara Hatch Rosenberg, p45. "Many of the non-lethal weapons under consideration utilize infrasound or electromagnetic energy (including lasers, microwave or radio-frequency radiation or visible light pulsed at brain-wave frequency) for their effects. These weapons are said to cause temporary or permanent blinding, interference with mental processes, modification of behavior and emotional response, seizures, severe pain, dizziness, nausea and diarrhea, or disruption of internal organ functions in various other ways."
The article further states, "In addition, under the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention, international discussions are now under way that may lead to the development of specific new protocols covering electromagnetic weapons; a report is expected sometime next year."
From The Guardian "The Future Art of War", May 25, 1995. Nic Lewer, peace researcher at the University of Bradford, in the latest issue of Medicine and War, lists "more than 30 different lines of research into 'new age weapons'..." the article further states, "Some of the research sounds even less rational. There are, according to Lewer, plans for 'pulsed microwave beams' to destroy enemy electronics, and separate plans for very-low-frequency sound beams to induce vomiting, bowel spasm, epileptic seizures and also crumble masonry."
Further the article states, "There are plans for 'mind control' with the use of 'psycho-correction messages' transmitted by subliminal audio and visual stimuli. There is also a plan for 'psychotronic weapons' - apparently the projection of consciousness to other locations- and another to use holographic projection to disseminate propaganda and misinformation."
From Free Thinking, Vol. 1. Number 4, March 1995, "President's Committee on Radiation Hears Mind Control Survivor's Testimony". "For the first time in history officials heard evidence of the atrocities of mind control which were committed along with the radiation "research". Ms. Wolf is among a number of independent researchers around the world who have come up with identical cases in which survivors of radiation treatment describe life-long mind control abuses at the hands of the U.S. government."
"While the radiation "research" was conducted under the direction of the Atomic Energy Commission, many of the same scientists who were involved in the CIA's MKULTRA program acted as overseers of the radiation experiments. Among these scientists were Dr. Martin T. Orne, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb, and Dr. L. Wilson Green." Also, "A licensed sociologist from New Orleans, Wolf offered her testimony and supporting evidence to the committee in a hearing on March 15th. Focusing on the 9,000 children who were targets of radiation experiments conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission and kept secret under the National Security Act, the precious ten minutes granted Ms. Wolf was a precedent setting digression from the investigators' agenda."
From Nexus Magazine, "Soul Catcher Implants", Oct/Nov 1996. "British scientists are developing a concept for a computer chip which, when implanted into the skull behind the eye, will be able to record a person's every life time thought and sensation. "This is the end of death," said Dr. Chris Winter of British Telecom's artificial-life team. He predicts that within thirty years it will be possible to relive other people's lives by playing back their experiences on a computer."
The article further states, "By combining this information with a record of a person's genes, we could recreate a person physically, emotionally and spiritually." Dr. Winter and his team of scientists at BT's Martlesham Heath Laboratories, near Ipswich, call the chip "the Soul Catcher." The author, David Guyatt states that, "British Telecom, Britain's giant telecommunications enterprise, has a long history of involvement with the intelligence services." This article quotes it sources as, "The Daily (London) Telegraph, July 18, 1996.
From USAF Scientific Advisory Board, New World Vistas Air and Space Power for the 21st Century, Ancillary Volume, p89. "Prior to the mid-21st century, there will be a virtual explosion of knowledge in the field of neuroscience. We will have achieved a clear understanding of how the human brain works, how it really controls the various functions of the body, and how it can be manipulated (both positively and negatively). One can envision the development of electromagnetic energy sources, the output of which can be pulsed, shaped, and focused, that can couple with the human body in a fashion that will allow one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions (and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions, interfere with both short-term and long-term memory, produce an experience set, and delete an experience set. This will open the door for the development of some novel capabilities that can be used in armed conflict, in terrorist/hostage situation, and in training..."
It is interesting to note that two scientists with connections to CIA classified mind control and psychic research have contributed to this study. Dr. J West, MD Director Emeritus, Neuropsychiatric Institute, UCLA, School of Medicine, Behavioral biology and Dr. Edwin May, PhD, Science Applications International Corporation,(SAIC) Physics of Consciousness.
This timeline demonstrates how classified the electromagnetic and mind control technology is. Scientists have been killed for revealing this technology. They have lost government funding. They can be prosecuted and or lose their jobs if they reveal national security secrets. And some scientists have been targeted with the technology and have been unfairly labeled mentally ill.
A similar analogy would be the Manhattan Project, the U.S. government program to build the atomic bomb. The project used the highest of national security precautions, and few knew of its existence. Mind control technology is the currently classified weapons program and national security methods are even more entrenched and developed.
