This article was completed in July 2001, months before the
catastrophic attack of September 11, 2001 in New York City and Washington.
It contains research that eerily suggests the possibility that the World
Trade Center/Pentagon hijackers could have been hypnotically programmed
to murder thousands of innocent people while taking their own lives. So
says psychiatrist Colin Ross, author of BLUEBIRD: Deliberate Creation of
Multiple Personality by Psychiatrists. In a 9/13/01 essay Ross writes, "Psychiatric
mind control could be used to create a terrorist like those who hijacked
the airplanes on September 11." ( http://www.rossinst.com/terrorism.htm
). This view is buttressed by a 1952 declassified document from the CIA's
Bluebird program. Among a series of questions its psychiatric contractors
would be researching is the following: "Could we seize a subject and
in the space of an hour or two by post-H control have him crash an airplane,
wreck a train, etc.?" ("Post-H" stands for post-hypnotic)
Mohamed Atta, alleged to be the ringleader of the hijackers,
is described by a British woman as being in a perpetual "trance-like
state," wearing an icy, hypnotic expression. "I will never forget
his face. It was always set almost in a grimace like he was in a trance,"
said Anne Greaves, who knew him for six months at the Huffman Aviation Flight
School in Florida. "I said 'hi' and he just looked straight through
me as if I didn't exist." Greaves reported that Atta showed no emotion
and walked toward the aircraft with the "air of somebody doing something
they don't really want to do." (Birmingham Evening Mail, 9/24/01) Mohammed
al-Amir, Atta's Egyptian father, adamantly refused to believe the gentle
son he knew could commit such a horrific crime, adding, "My son hates
bin Laden." Charging that his son was framed, al-Amir Atta insisted
that a close examination of Atta's picture printed in newspapers showed
that his son's face had been superimposed on another man's head. (Deutsch

"I know the capacity that there is to make tyranny
total in America and we must see to it that this agency [the National
Security Agency] and all agencies that possess this technology operate
within the law and under proper supervision, so that we never cross over
that abyss. That is the abyss from which there is no return."
Senator Frank Church, 1975 (1)
Admiral Jeremy Boorda
At 56, Admiral Jeremy "Mike" Boorda had everything to live for.
As Chief of Naval Operations (CNO), he was at the pinnacle of his career.
Supported by a loving family and widely respected as "an officer of
legendary devotion to the Navy," why would the admiral suddenly and
violently take his own life?
On May 16, 1996, Boorda was found shot through the heart on
a bench outside his official residence in the Washington Navy Yard. The
police instantaneously diagnosed "suicide." But Boorda's recent
advocacy of suicide prevention cast an eerie shadow on the official story.
"Can the sailor commit suicide and not have the leader
know that he or she was in distress?" the admiral had asked in a speech
at the Annapolis Naval Academy the previous month. Answering his own query,
he continued, "No. We can't ignore things we must work on and if we
hide them, we do everybody a disservice." (2)
By all indicators, Boorda was not depressed. His wife and several admirals
vouched for his high spirits only hours before his body was found. To intimates,
it made no sense that he would destroy himself without warning. Furthermore,
as one woman on an Internet listserve so astutely observed, "People
who commit suicide by shooting do not do it in the chest." (3)
Mike Boorda was an unlikely suicide candidate for another,
more personal reason. He and his wife Bettie were the main support for their
first-born son David, who is legally blind and severely handicapped by congenital
malformations. The Boordas raised him to adulthood in their own home while
rearing three other healthy children, two of whom are Navy officers. Known
to be very attached to David, the admiral had planned early retirement to
spend more time with his family. (4)Would a responsible and loving father
suddenly opt to leave his wife to care for their disabled son alone?
Midway into research for this series, a number of alleged
mind control (MC) experimentees began sharing their suspicions that Admiral
Boorda had been assassinated to prevent his speaking out against nonconsensual
human experimentation in military weapons research. Blanche Chavoustie referred
me to a sinister CIA document from the 1950s that entertains ways of "disposing"
of experimental MK-Ultra subjects and people "who cannot be trusted"
to safeguard military secrets. Chemical lobotomy, drugs, and "ultrasonics
or some other radiating energy" were the methods suggested as possible
alternatives to an "ice pick" lobotomy or permanently locking
the person away someplace. (5) "Now, with new improved techniques,"
Chavoustie says, "victims such as Admiral Boorda have been known to
self-destruct on their lunch hour." (See Part 2 of this series, May/June
2000 Probe for Chavoustie's story.)
Two additional people told me Boorda could easily have been
done in by one of the surefire assassination methods the Navy has finessed
after 50 years of covert research and field testing. This little-known secret
slipped out on July 6, 1975 with an article in the London Sunday Times,
"How the U.S. Navy Brain-Trains Political Assassins." The Times
quoted a speech by Navy Lt. Commander Thomas Narut to a group of 120 psychologists
at a NATO conference in Oslo, Norway. Narut worked at the U.S. Regional
Medical Center in Naples, Italy. He reported the Navy had been programming
"hit men and assassins" who would kill on command; some subjects
were drawn from the ranks of convicted murders serving time in military
The "damage control" boys soon moved in. Narut was
flown to London and forevermore silenced. The Navy issued a statement in
his name saying his remarks were merely "theoretical." Newspapers
were told the lieutenant commander was having "personal problems."
Narut's loose lips reached the U.S. only through the Chicago Sun Times (July
7, 1975). (6)
Corroboration for the existence of an operational MC assassination
program can be found in a declassified Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
document prepared by the U.S. Army in January 1972 (Author: J. LaMothe);
Part III is titled "Mental Suggestion and Controlled Behavior."
Section B elucidates how hypnosis can be used to create a multi-personality
"super spy" assassin, based on the writings of psychologist and
Army consultant George Estabrooks. (Part 2 of this series, May/June 2000
Probe documents the U.S. military's creation of Manchurian Candidates going
back to World War II.)
A 5/26/95 article in The Herald (Glasgow), "Brainwash
killers 'still in use'," contains information about a psychotronic
influence system developed in the 1970s in the former Soviet Union that
creates programmable "human weapons" through the use of hypnosis
and high-frequency radio waves. The article warns that this system "has
found its way on to the free market, where mobsters and private security
firms are using it."
From the earliest days of the MK-Ultra program in the 1950s,
the CIA has systematically searched for execution methods that could be
disguised as suicide. All indications are that the macabre Doctor Deaths
of the military/intelligence world have succeeded, using untraceable electro-magnetic
(EM) technology to commit the "perfect crime."
In 1995 Perceptions, an independent magazine dedicated to
environmental, political and health issues, published a strange and scary
story titled "The Secret War Against Medford, Oregon." Author
Mark Metcalf revealed a 14-year-old conversation with Dr. David Fraser,
former head of the Department of Toxicology at the University of North Carolina.
Now deceased, Fraser had assembled a scientific team that traveled to Oregon
to investigate an alarming cluster of suicides in the City of Medford (Jackson
County) in the early 1970s.
With a 1970 population of only 28,454, the city saw the number
of suicides between 1970 and 1975 rise from 2 to 10; in Jackson County the
number shot up from 13 to 24. Suicide rates are calculated per 100,000 population
and averaged in 5-year compilations. Although the number of suicides in
and around Medford do not meet the usual criteria for reliable rate calculations,
turning them into rates allows comparisons. In 1975 Medford's rate of 17
per 100,000 was higher than for Oregon (15.4) and for the USA as a whole
According to Metcalf, the scientists soon found that Medford
was being bombarded with ultra low frequency (ULF) electromagnetic waves
originating from a nearby military base. The commander of the military base
told the investigators that he knew about the radiation but claimed it was
caused by the Russians. However, the ULF bombardment mysteriously ceased
the very next day after this confrontation. After they returned to the east
but before the researchers could write up their report, Metcalf wrote, "Several
men displaying CIA credentials arrived on campus and said that the ULF waves
beamed into Medford were a 'national security' matter. They explicitly threatened
to kill each of the researchers, including Dr. Fraser himself, should anyone
speak further about it. As far as I know, no one did." (8)
On April 8, 1994, popular rock star/writer Kurt Cobain (of
Nirvana fame) was found dead in his own home. He appeared to have been the
victim of a shotgun blast to the head three days before. A deadly dose of
heroin (three times over) was found in his blood. His so-called suicide
note did not indicate he was going to take his own life. Many fans believe
the evidence does not prove suicide and that Cobain
was more likely murdered. (9) But why?
The answer may lie in a technical document purporting to reveal
secrets of National Security Agency (NSA) "psyops" (psychological
operations) and systematic MC. Posted on several Web sites in 1999, it was
provided by an engineer who claims he had worked as a consultant to the
NSA and feared for his own safety as a whistleblower (hence the author's
MC literature on the World Wide Web constitutes the cutting
edge of serious research into radio frequency (RF) or directed-energy weapons
(DEW). At the same time, one can easily find writings laden with wild, unproven
charges and undocumented speculation. It is a daunting task to pluck the
gems out of the confusion and purposeful disinformation, which are plentiful.
(10) After two years of wading through bizarre personal testimonies, and
filling up three file-drawers with scientific research, hundreds of periodical
articles, patents, interviews, correspondence, and muckraking pieces that
support the existence of powerful MC technologies, (11) I find this particular
document compelling and worthy of serious study.
Among several examples of "NSA self-initiated execution
(suicide)," it claims Cobain was a casualty of brainwashing who was
"terminated" for "writing clues" about his victimization
into his songs. "Once the NSA puts on the highest level of brainwashing
pain, the subject expires quickly," this document alleges. "Cobain
used heroin to numb and otherwise slow the effect of the brainwashing."
Rauni Kilde, MD, former Chief Medical Officer of Finland,
lectures and writes about an NSA MC system using radio implants and microchips
connected to satellites that is remarkably similar to what is described
in the "NSA psyops" document. "With electro-magnetic frequency
(EMF) brain stimulation fully coded," she writes, "pulsating electromagnetic
signals can be sent to the brain, causing the desired voice and visual effects
to be experienced by the target. This is a form of electronic warfare."
Kilde warns that "connecting our brain functions via microchips (or
even without them, according to the latest technology) to computers via
satellites...poses the gravest threat to humanity." (13)
The Boorda Mystery
The Boorda mystery deepens when a whole range of facts gleaned
from worldwide press coverage of his shocking death is integrated with the
experiences of alleged MC experimentees. One woman told me that in March
1996 the Air Force and the Navy had finally opened investigations into her
claim that she and about 500 other people were being tortured by remotely
controlled, neuro-electromagnetic (NEM) or RF weapons. Bizarre stories alleging
surveillance, electronic harassment and remotely controlled torture of people
throughout the world are posted on many Web sites. (14) The amply referenced
research of Cheryl Welsh, 1997 founder of Citizens Against Human Rights
Abuse (CAHRA), supports many of these claims, especially "Nonconsensual
Brainwave and Personality Studies by the U.S. Government," "The
1950s Secret Discovery of the Code of the Brain,"and the Russian Book
Translation Project. (15)
In an article published last year in Matrix 3000, Band 4,
a German publication, Welsh writes, "Heart attacks, suicides, assassinations,
blackmail, all can be done remotely leaving no trace of evidence to tie
it to the perpetrators."
Blanche Chavoustie is one of a number of allegedly targeted
individuals who had contact with Admiral Boorda's office shortly before
he died. She points out that burial of the Navy MC investigation followed
quickly upon the admiral's own interment; however the Air Force probe may
still be open. (16)
The nagging suspicion that Boorda did not willfully self-destruct
is bolstered by his renowned toughness regarding media attacks on the Navy
and himself. Appointed by President Clinton in 1994 to overcome the long-running
legacy of the 1991 Tailhook sex scandal, Boorda soon made enemies within
the military. The "old guard" considered him a "political
admiral" appointed to dismantle the notoriously racist and sexist Navy
culture. They were angered at decisions that halted the career advancement
of high-level male personnel and supported the promotion of Navy women and
ethnic minorities. (17)
But Boorda very publicly asserted he would not fall into the
trap of feeling sorry for himself. He was popular among rank and file sailors.
Eulogized as a "sailor's sailor," he was the only enlisted seaman
to rise to CNO in the nearly 200 years of Navy history. This made him an
outsider, resented by the blue-blood admiralty. As the Guardian of London
aptly put it, "Admiral Boorda was short (5 ft. 4 in.), Jewish, clever,
gregarious, astute and knew his own mind. He was hardly the Platonic role-model
for the man to command the most WASP-ish and hereditary of the U.S. armed
The admiral's body was found just after 2 p.m., about one-half
hour before he was to meet with two Newsweek reporters at Navy headquarters.
In the official story, Boorda abruptly went home for lunch after being informed
by Rear Admiral Kendell Pease to expect accusations that he lacked authorization
to wear two Vietnam-era, bronze "V" pins (decorations that signify
valor in battle).
Pease later told the press that Boorda had not appeared unduly
upset at the prospect of such questions and responded matter-of-factly,
"We'll just tell him the truth." Boorda had already removed the
tiny pins from his uniform the year before when questions were first raised
about them. After lying dormant for a year, the medals issue was suddenly
pushed into public view as the most plausible motivation for Boorda turning
a pistol on himself. One of the two typed notes found beside Boorda's home
computer was addressed "to my sailors" and said, "I couldn't
bear to bring dishonor to you." (19)
An inch-thick report by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service
was inconclusive as to Boorda's motive for suicide. It cited several unnamed
people who insisted the admiral was not distraught in discussing the medals
query. Significantly, the autopsy report was never made public. A blacked-out
version was secured by the NYT under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA),
lending credence to suspicions of a coverup. (20) If the autopsy unambiguously
substantiates a self-inflicted gunshot to Boorda's chest using the .38 handgun
given him by his son-in-law (as reported by the media), then why keep it
Boorda & "Cognitive Warfare"
The Guardian reported on May 18, 1996, there was "another
cruel twist to Admiral Boorda's death" regarding a newspaper. It revealed
that Boorda had finally agreed to give "his first full interview"
for a series called "Bosnia: The Secret War." (21) Few Americans
know of the admiral's role as advisor to President Clinton during the controversial
U.S. intervention in Bosnia. From 1991 to 1994, Boorda was Commander-in-Chief
of U.S. Naval Forces in Europe and Commander-in-Chief of Allied Forces in
southern Europe, based in Naples, Italy. Despite "his position,"
Boorda had agreed to speak to the London newspaper on unspecified "highly
"The last years of Boorda's career were marked by his
insistence that the US take a robust line and intervene militarily in the
carnage of Bosnia-Herzegovina," the Guardian said. "This opinion
became the admiral's anthem, and both isolated and vindicated him within
a Pentagon which was stubbornly resistant to intervention." (22) Could
military opposition to Boorda's Guardian interview have played a role in
his untimely and inexplicable death?
In October 1996 the respectable, Paris-based Intelligence
Newsletter alluded to "lurid reports" that Boorda "was
murdered because he was about to reveal sinister undertakings by the Navy
in mind control and brain warfare." It disclosed that the
admiral "was deeply involved in a study on the possibilities of cognitive
warfare, a form of mind control that uses acoustical, optical and electromagnetic
fields or a combination of the three to interfere with the biological processes
of an enemy." (23) This information provides a compelling reason to
see the medals controversy as a bogus motivation for suicide. Corroboration
for the existence of "cognitive warfare" can be found in New World
Vistas, a 16-volume, 1996 Air Force publication. The section on "biological
process control" says that it is possible "to create high fidelity
speech in the human body, raising the possibility of covert suggestion and
psychological direction...[making it] possible to "talk" to selected
adversaries in a fashion that would be most disturbing to them." (24)
The Intelligence Newsletter reported that Boorda headed a
secret body called the Strategic Studies Group investigating technologies
for producing speech and "covert suggestions" in the "enemy's
head." It said further, "The same techniques, say the experts,
could be used to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions
and actions, produce sleep and interfere with short-term and long-term memory."
Could it be mere coincidence that these same biological and
psychological effects had been reported by CAHRA members to Navy and AF
investigators in the months preceding Boorda's sudden demise? Many alleged
experimentees also say they hear artificial voices inside their heads or
receive thoughts that are not their own! Did Admiral Boorda find out about
nonconsensual human experimentation conducted by the Navy, raise ethical
objections or even order them to cease, thereby rendering himself too dangerous
Questionable "suicide" of Aussie
If Boorda was "taken out" by means of MC technology
that induces "suicide" by remote control, he may be the highest
ranking official in recent years to have met this fate. But by no means
is he the only such suspected case of murder most foul.
On June 13, 1999, in the Washington suburb of Arlington, Virginia,
Mervyn Jenkins, the North American attache for the Australian Defence Intelligence
Organization (DIO) was found hanged in the backyard of his home a week before
the Jenkins family planned to return to Australia. Jenkins, an expert in
covert action and electronic warfare, had been posted in Washington for
a three-year assignment. He had been stressed by bureaucratic infighting
between two Australian intelligence agencies over which documents could
be shared with the CIA and the DIA. But would this happily married father
of three sons take his own life on his 48th birthday? His diary showed detailed
plans for his life in Australia 10 weeks into the future.
On April 16, 2001, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's
(ABC) popular investigative news show "Four Corners" probed Jenkins'
mysterious "suicide," which had produced a storm of criticism
in Australia, leading to a government investigation. Not satisfied with
the results (the Blunn Report), Jenkins' wife filed a lawsuit against the
government. Both his wife and mother appeared on the ABC broadcast, a transcript
of which is posted online. (25)
Betty Daly-King believes Jenkins was murdered to prevent him
returning home with knowledge that the Pentagon didn't want him to bring
back to Australia. Daly-King is a Western Australia peace and human rights
activist who claims she has been tortured with DEW in retaliation for 40
years of working for alternative means of resolving conflicts that lead
to war. Focused on ensuring peace in the Indian Ocean region, she is responsible
for peace studies professorships in two Perth universities. Daly-King cites
several other cases of DEW being used to silence scientists, activists and
writers, just in Western Australia alone.
According to the official story laid out by "Four Corners,"
Jenkins was caught in the crossfire between U.S. and Australian intelligence
agencies over the issue of intelligence sharing. Daly-King believes that
the conflict centered on the Indonesion repression of East Timorese who
had voted for independence, with the U.S. backing the Indonesians and the
Australians leaning toward the East Timorese independence fighters. Influential
Australian organizations such as the Returned Servicemen's League have historically
sympathized with the East Timorese because so many had risked their lives
to save Australians during World War II, she explains, and people-to-people
relationships have been maintained ever since. (26)
"The USA would do anything to appease Indonesia to keep
access through their straits to get to and from Saudi's oil," she wrote
to me. "They were not amused at Australia being in the forefront of
restoring East Timor against perceived Indonesia and USA interests! All
that lovely East Timor offshore oil, too."
A map of the Washington area posted on the ABC Web site is
chilling in its implications. With large red dots, it visually depicts the
Jenkins home in Arlington surrounded on three sides by the Pentagon, the
CIA, the DIA headquartered at the Bolling Air Force Base, and the British,
Canadian and Australian embassies. (27)
Mysterious Deaths in the British Defense Industry
An epidemic of unexplained deaths in England's defense industry
occurred from 1982 to 1988 (totally blacked out of the "free"
U.S. press). Twenty-five British computer programmers and engineers working
on electronic warfare programs died in a rash of suspicious suicides, disappearances,
and bizarre accidents. They were the subject of British journalist Tony
Collin's 1990 book Open Verdict: An Account of 25 Mysterious Deaths in the
Defence Industry. Five of these scientists were talented computer programmers
who worked for Marconi Underwater Systems (a major contractor for the Reagan
Administration's "Star Wars" Strategic Defense Initiative or SDI),
or one of its subsidiaries. Many worked for the government or military installations
directly. Britain's nuclear arsenal is submarine-based. Most of the dead
programmers were working on top-secret simulator programs used in underwater
submarine deception warfare. "In the majority of cases, there were
no eyewitnesses and the periods before their deaths could not be explained,"
Collins writes (28)
Investigations began when two young men were found in Bristol,
more than 100 miles from their homes, where they had no apparent connections.
In 1986 Vimal Dajibhai, 24, was found under a bridge with an unexplained
puncture mark on his thigh and his pants down around the ankles. A few months
later Arshad Sharif, 26, alleged hanged himself by tying one end of a rope
around his his neck, the other end lashed to a tree, and accelerating his
car until his neck snapped. Family members interviewed by Collins said the
two men were actively planning their futures and had no motive for suicide.
Shortly thereafter, PhD student Avtar Singh Gita, 26, who was working on
submarine warfare under a grant from the defense industry, disappeared from
Loughborough University. Singh Gita's thesis was titled "Underwater
Signal Processing." He was found in Paris months later, but could not
recall why or how he got there. (29)
Several gifted scientists and programmers employed in other
branches of the defense industry died under suspicious circumstances in
1987. Peter Peapell, 46, a simulator expert in stealth and EW, was found
underneath his car with the engine running. David Sands, 37, allegedly drove
at high velocity into a brick wall, after filling his car with cans of gasoline.
Richard Pugh, 37, was found dead in his home with a plastic bag over his
head and his feet tied. Royal Air Force computer specialist Mark Wisner,
25, was also found suffocated by a plastic bag. Dr. John Brittan, 52, was
found dead in his garage with the car running; he had been a computer expert
at the Royal Armaments Research and Develpment Establishment. In 1988 the
body of Russell Smith, 23, who worked for the United Kingdom Atomic Energy
Authority in Harwell, was found on a cliff. Family members of these deceased
individuals indicated no motive for suicide. (30)
Tony Collins concludes that "psychological engineering"
of suicidal behavior is a possible explanation for these unexplained deaths.
His conclusion is based on the experience of Australian engineer and investigative
journalist Joe Vialls who says he survived such macabre manipulations in
1983. Vialls had become unwittingly involved in a Cold War espionage operation
while working on a sensitive oil drilling operation in India. He reports
he suffered both microwave radiation and post-hypnotic suggestions implanted
electronically by unknown controllers, whom he suspects were working for
the CIA. Doctors who treated Vialls at the London-based Medical Foundation
for the Care of Torture Victims verified that he was susceptible to clandestine
hypnosis and post-hypnotic suggestions. Vialls, whose story can be found
in Collins' final chapter, has published a book and many articles on suspected
Manchurian Candidate-type assassinations as well as exposes of the U.S.
military's Omega above- and underground communication system, which he believes
has the capacity for mind control operations worldwide. (31)
Europeans Reject Invisible Weapons
Warnings on the perils of electronic MC can be found in the
European press. Scientists, intellectuals and government officials there
have been banging the warning drums for several years about dangerous U.S.
surveillance and NEM technologies. (32) A 1997 editorial in the British
Medical Journal alerted the healing profession to "guard against its
knowledge being used for weapon development." Written by surgeon Robin
M. Coupland, the editorial warned that the new category of "non-lethal"
(NL) weapons, including "devices generating infrasound or electromagnetic
waves, and devices for riot control," was not covered by existing international
treaties banning chemical and biological weapons. (33)
In 1998 a neuroscientist at the Institut Pasteur in Paris
cautioned that "advances in cerebral imaging" were "capable
of being used at a distance" and would "open the way for abuses
such as invasion of personal liberty, control of behavior and brainwashing."
Another researcher at the French Atomic Energy Commission said imaging techniques
have reached the stage where "we can almost read people's thoughts."
(34) In 1998 the Scientific and Technological Options Assessment (STOA)
panel of the European Parliament "shocked European leaders" with
its voluminous report subtitled "Appraisal of Technologies of Political
Control." The CIA's mind control (MK-Ultra) program is fully referenced
On January 28, 1999, while Congress and the U.S. media were
diddling with the impeachment of President Clinton, the European Parliament
passed a resolution calling "for an international convention introducing
a global ban on all developments and deployments of weapons which might
enable any form of manipulation of human beings." (36) And a 1999 UN-sponsored
conference on human consciousness passed an ethics resolution urging neuroscientists
to ensure their discoveries are used to serve "human welfare, never
warfare." What is known as the Tokyo Declaration declares, "Today,
we have the intellectual, physical and financial resources to master the
power of the brain itself, and to develop devices to touch the mind and
even control or erase consciousness." (37)
Secret MC technologies have already been used by U.S. armed
forces in Third World interventions without any public discussion. According
to Judy Wall, editor of Resonance(newsletter of the Mensa Bioelectromagnetics
Special Interest Group), the EC-130E Commando Solo aircraft, built by Lockheed
at a cost of $100 million each, conducts psychological operations through
broadcasts "in the standard AM, FM, HF, TV and military communications
bands." Wall discovered that Commando Solo is equipped with Silent
Sound Spread Spectrum, a MC technology that can "entrain the listener's
brainwaves into a preselected emotional state." (38) Commando Solo
aircraft were used as far back as the 1983 U.S. military intervention in
Grenada, and later in Panama, Haiti, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Iraq. (39)
The British ITV News Bureau reported that this technology
was used in Operation Desert Storm in 1991 to demoralize Iraqi soldiers
and instill "a perpetual feeling of fear and hopelessness." (40)
In "Military Use of Mind Control Weapons," Wall exposes how human
brainwave patterns known as "emotion signature clusters" can be
stored on a computer, then piggybacked to Silent Sound carrier frequencies
to "silently trigger the occurrence of the same basic emotion in another
human being." Voice commands can also be used in subliminal messages
attached to music. (41)
The U.S. military's secret strategy for post-cold-war conflicts
"short of war" is called "The Revolution in Military Affairs,"
a deceptively futuristic scenario based on an arsenal of grotesque psychotechnologies
unknown to the American taxpayers who fund their development. Among the
new military-speak one finds "strategic personality simulation,"
exactly the sort of neofascist MC that could explain the bizarre harassment
stories of many hapless civilians. (42) Readers still skeptical about the
existence of MC technologies are urged to check out "The Mind has No
Firewall," an article published in the Army journal Parameters (Spring
1998). (43) Evidence of plans to incorporate mind control in future wars
is as unambiguous as it is repulsive.
Constructing Thoughtforms to Order?
Former Navy engineer Eleanor White traces her victimization
as an alleged involuntary NEM experimentee to the spring of 1980 when she
asked the Bureau of Naval Personnel to update her service record. The harassment
began later that year -- on the street, at work, and in six successive apartments,
she claims. "I just thought I was the unluckiest human being on the
planet, entirely unique and alone," she says, until 1996 when she found
Ed Light's Mind Control Forum on the Internet. (44) "The near-perfect
congruence of my effects with what others were experiencing was like entering
a whole new life." This sameness of "effects" is reported
by hundreds of people throughout the world. Many are well-educated and hold
down responsible jobs; others are physically and psychological disabled
by torturous hospitalizations and years of abuse. The sheer volume of their
highly literate communications convinces me that every allegation of psychological-warfare
experimentation cannot be conveniently pigeon-holed as the paranoia of a
Eldon Byrd has been similarly persuaded. A medical engineer,
Byrd is retired from the Naval Surface Weapons Center, Office of Non-Lethal
Weapons. A member of the U.S. Psychotronics Association (USPA), he has published
papers on the telemetry of brain waves (measuring them wirelessly from a
distance), (45) and the psycho-activity of extremely low frequency (ELF)
electromagnetic and scalar fields. After corresponding with White and other
alleged experimentees for several years, he concluded they were neither
hallucinating nor allergic to ELF waves. "You have convinced me that
this is something going on that should be investigated," Byrd wrote
White. He affirmed that "images can be projected directly into a human
brain from a distance using the 'scalar' component of a weak magnetic field."
But he questioned who would be so evil as to inflict this technology on
unsuspecting people? (46)
Lt. Col. Thomas E. Bearden, also a member of USPA, is a PhD
scientist, nuclear engineer, and proponent of "the new physics,"
which may be crucial to understanding the MC technologies developed by the
U.S. military-industrial complex. Bearden publishes SPECULA, a magazine
devoted to psychotronics and bio-energetics. (47) His books include The
Excalibur Statement, Analysis of Scalar Electromagnetics, and Gravitobiology:
A New Biophysics (Tesla Book Company). In a February 1991 interview conducted
by Michael Hutchison, editor of Megabrain Report, Bearden revealed that
"scalar electromagnetic phenomena" make it possible to construct
"thoughtforms to order, and input them directly into the mind and longterm
memory." This can be done through "a hidden channel to pipe in
inputs" and it can be done "surrepticiously, from a distance and
without the knowledge and consent of the individual affected," he said
further. Bearden calls this "the ultimate mind control." (48)
On July 23, 2000, Byrd delivered a paper to the 26th annual
conference of the USPA in Columbus, Ohio, titled "Recent Advances in
Scalar Technologies." He told the audience that many people claiming
they are victims of remote MC devices appeared to be highly functional,
and that there must be something to their claims. He pointed to thousands
of documented cases during the Cold War of the U.S. government experimenting
on citizens without their knowledge or consent.
He then cited a July 2, 1997 statement by Major General Sydney
Schacknow of the Army's Special Forces (Ft. Bragg, North Carolina) that
our military was "working on synthetic telepathy (the ability to read
people's intentions at a distance using a magnetic laser -- a maser operating
at extremely low frequencies," which can "alter behavior at a
distance." In private conversation, Byrd told one participant that
Marines had been shown a device that projects images into the brain from
a distance, and that a Superconductor Quantum Interference Detector or SQUID
machine (a sophisticated EEG device) can detect the mysterious rays many
people suspect are causing them pain. (49) Byrd's paper at the 2001 USPA
meeting in Columbus, Ohio, July 20-23, is titled "Mind Control: Paranoid
Delusions or Frightening Reality?"
"Synthetic telepathy is a term used to describe the beaming
of words, thoughts, or ideas into a person's mind by mechanical means...some
type of electromagnetic transmitter...operating in the microwave frequency
band," begins a May, 1995 article by Judy Wall in Resonance. (50) The
first known U.S. experiment in which audible voices were communicated via
pulsed microwaves was carried out in 1973 by Joseph C. Sharp and Mark Grove
in Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in the USA. Their success was
based on biophysicist Allen Frey's post-WWII experiments with "microwave
Commenting on Sharp's "pulsed microwave audiogram"
in his 1985 ground-breaking book,The Body Electric, Robert O. Becker, MD,
points out, "Such a device has obvious applications in covert operations
designed to drive a target crazy with 'voices' or deliver undetectable instructions
to a programmed assassin." He also noted, "Nearly two-thirds of
the $47-billion 1984 federal research budget went for military work, and
in the field of bioelectricity the proportion was even higher." In
denouncing "the buying of science by the military," Becker boldly
declared, "To call it a form of prostitution is an insult to the oldest
profession." Becker was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize in Medicine,
but his career suffered because of his condemnation of the military uses
of bioelectric research. (52)
Two years ago the career of SUNY-Albany Professor Kathryn
Kelley also suffered a setback because of her probes into the mysteries
of MC. In August 1999 Kelley's provocative research on the surgical implantation
of communications devices to read thoughts was suddenly shut down. She had
delivered a paper to a professional conference in Orlando, Florida, in which
she described acoustic implants in human beings called RAATS (short for
radio wave, auditory, assaultive, transmitting implants). Kelley wrote,
"When (short-wave) operators transmit to or scan RAAT implants in victims,
they can talk to the victims remotely and anonymously, and hear the victim's
speech and thoughts." (53)
"The Bionics of Man"
In 1962 Dr. Leonid L. Vasiliev, an internationally known Russian
physiologist, remarked that "the discovery of the energy underlying
ESP [extrasensory perception] will be equivalent to the discovery of atomic
energy." (54) The word "psychotronics" was actually coined
by Czechoslovak researchers to legitimize parapsychology as a scientific
discipline. The Czech Manifesto adopted at the 1968 Moscow Parapsychological
Conference declared, "Psychotronics is, in essence, the bionics of
In the 1950s Soviet researchers invented a medical device
called the LIDA machine, which uses modulated ELF waves to induce a trance-like
hypnosis in human beings. According to a 1993Defense Electronics article,
a Richmond, Virginia company called Psychotechnologies Corporation now holds
the LIDA patent, euphemistically called "psycho-correction technology."
The Soviets were also the first to use EEG machines to catch
"the moment when telepathy lights up in the brain." However, the
U.S. came in a close second. In 1959 secret ESP research on the U.S. atomic
sub Nautilus made headlines in France. Journalists asked the sensational
question, "Has the American military learned the secret of mind power?"
(57) The U.S. officially denied theNautilus experiments. But Carol Rutz
remembers being taken aboard this ship when she was 10 as part of a CIA
MK-Ultra psychic assassination research program. Rutz reports being trained
to send psychic energy to a "certain high-placed individual" to
create a deadly aneurysm! (58) (See Part 3 of this series, July/August 2000
Probe for secret government experimentation using children.)
To understand the progression of electronic MC technologies
from the 50s through the 90s, readers will benefit from consulting two online
timelines composed by Judy Wall and Cheryl Welsh, respectively; a Fact Sheet
with documentation on Nonconsensual Experimentation prepared by Welsh; and
a bibliography titled "Psychoactivity of Electromagnetic Fields."
"For the first time in history," Eleanor White writes,
"one human being, from hiding, at a distance, can control the thoughts
and actions of another, by way of undetectable hypnosis, using still-classified
electronic technology. These devices have totally disabled the world's justice
systems." A board member of CAHRA, White has compiled the collective
research of its members into a 136-page report, "The State of Unclassified
and Commercial Technology Capable of Some Electronic Mind Control Effects."
(60) She warns that anyone with knowhow and enough money could assemble
an arsenal from ordinary (but expensive) electronic equipment and be totally
immune from prosecution. "Zero-evidence weapons," she says, "make
revenge crimes routine and easy." In the March 2000 issue of The American
Reporter, White calls for debate and controls on all manufactured MC devices.
In the late 1980s, activists in the Greenham Common Women's
Peace Camp began experiencing headaches, nausea, vertigo, depression, disorientation
and short-term memory loss. They were camped outside a U.S. Air Force Base
in Great Britain to protest nuclear weapons and global militarization. Strong
signals of non-ionizing radiation (microwave) up to 100 times the normal
background level were detected there. Women peace activists in Seneca, New
York, experienced similar harassment. (62)
Julianne McKinney, an ex-CIA case officer, believes she has
been intentionally targeted by EM weapons. The painful harassment made her
arms bleed, her gums rot and her teeth crack. In the early 1990s, she conducted
an Electronic Surveillance Project, an offshoot of the Association of National
Security Alumni. Her 22-page booklet, Microwave Harassment and Mind Control,
published in 1992, documents many claims of NEM harassment. (63)
White has coined the term "voice-to-skull" (v2s)
to describe an effect reported by hundreds of people. But White herself
does not hear voices. "In my case and a few others," she says,
"v2s is restricted to fake alarm clocks ringing at 3 a.m, fake phone
or pager ringing, and fake bird choruses when no birds are around."
In-home attacks include forced awakening and sleep deprivation, "hot
needles" in the flesh, sexual stimulation, body vibrations and itching,
limbs jerking wildly, and muscles manipulated remotely (vocal cords forced
to produce sound against her will). White says she also suffers apartment
break-ins with items stolen and clothing ripped. At work, she has experienced
mind-blanking attacks and inexplicable computer malfunctions. Although she
acknowledges that "the actual weapons now in use are tightly classified,"
she discovered through years of research that "the primitive weapons
leading up to the current crop are mostly unclassified and some are even
commercially available." (64)
White's Web site, http://www.raven1.net, contains a storehouse
of credible research on government-sponsored MC experiments and technologies.
It is a magnet that draws in people from all over the world searching for
answers to the weird bio-electric phemonena experienced in their own bodies,
homes, and communities. Thanks to White's e-mail exchange depot, I have
corresponded with many highly articulate people from all walks of life,
and have interviewed some by telephone. For example, I have learned of several
cases where people discovered through x-rays or MRIs that family members
had been implanted with biochips during minor surgery, without their knowledge
Biochips, now the size of an uncooked grain of rice, are easily implantable
for beneficial uses as well as for surrepticious political control. Applied
Digital Solutions is now testing and marketing its "Digital Angel"
technology, a biochip that makes possible the tracking of people using Global
Positioning Satellites. (65) British Professor Kevin Warwick and his wife
are being implanted with biochips to test whether they can read each other's
thoughts when separated by distance. (66)
DSM-IV: Diagnosis or Coverup?
CAHRA members complain about the knee-jerk reactions of U.S.
physicians (especially psychiatrists) to their suffering. Some have had
bouts with hospitalization where they were subjected to forced drugging
and electroshock. Many fear sharing their torments with family and friends
lest they be labeled "paranoid schizophrenic" because they hear
voices, suspect they are under some kind of surveillance, or suffer debilitating
Many alleged experimentees felt somewhat vindicated, however,
when they read the opening words of a 1997 NYT Magazine cover story, "For
decades, those who claimed to be victims of clandestine radiation experiments
conducted by the United States Government were dismissed as paranoid."
(67) The Clinton Administration exposes on radiation experimentation using
thousands of unsuspecting North Americans opened the door for alleged MC
experimentees to speak publicly about their claims.
The first three parts of this series have documented how past
leaders of the American Psychiatric Association (APA) were secretly involved
in military/CIA MC research using nonconsensual human subjects, especially
women and children in their care. Is it happenstance or coverup that many
reported symptoms of NEM weapons have been written into the diagnostic categories
published in the APA's Diagnostic Statistical Manual IV (DSM IV)?
One DSM IV criterion of "schizotypal personality disorder"
is "belief in clairvoyance, telepathy, or 'sixth sense.' Under such
a sweeping definition, the entire cabal of military/intelligence psychic
experimenters (including privatized, Pentagon-funded outfits like Psi Tech)
could be labeled "schizophrenic" for indulging in "remote
viewing" (ESP) research for decades! (68) Significantly, a History
Channel offering called "Psychic Espionage," aired in September
2001, never ridiculed or cast "mental illness" aspersions on any
of the male scientists and CIA Stargate functionaries who were interviewed.
Rauni Kilde believes that "psychiatrists working for
U.S. intelligence agencies no doubt participated in writing and revising"
what has become a worldwide psychiatrists' bible. "Victims of mind
control experimentation are thus routinely diagnosed, knee-jerk fashion,
as mentally ill by doctors who learned the DSM "symptom" list
in medical school," she says. (69)
N. Renay Tanner suggests that people who suspect they are
targeted by electronic MC seek legal remedies and medical assistance through
human rights organizations rather than the medical profession. A Columbia
University graduate student focused on psychiatry and human rights, Tanner
is also United Nations liaison for Support Coalition International, a human
rights organization devoted to eliminating abuses by the mental-health industry.
Tanner believes the mental health system functions for the purpose of social
control top-down and that "ideologically driven" psychiatrists
who cannot admit to any evidence of fallibility will not help ameliorate
the stresses and trauma of nonconsensual experimentation.
Security Agency "Cutouts"?
CAHRA leaders bristle at suggestions that their pain may be
caused by some condition other than purposeful manipulation by government-funded
operators. They justifiably point to the MK-Ultra program and the thousands
of documented cases of nonconsensual experimentation. (70) Still, most people
offer no independent corroboration for their claims other than pointing
out symptoms in common with other alleged victims and research proving that
anti-personnel, directed-energy weapons do indeed exist.
One has to be skeptical of unscientific, long-distance evaluations
of individuals based solely on uncorroborated verbal reports, often communicated
via the anonymity of e-mail. After all, many known physical ailments such
as electrical sensitivity and fibromyalgia could produce similiar symptoms
in different people. (71) Some painful effects may also be due to allergic
reactions and EM pollution. Any number of people who corroborate each other's
symptoms could be suffering from what a recent New York Times magazine article
called "culturally specific" mental illness. (72) With suspicion
about unethical government-financed experimentation more the rule than the
exception, and widespread computer networking by people searching for answers
to their problems, the stage is set for an epidemic of self-diagnosed victims.
How does one separate out genuine experimentees from people whose symptoms
may have physical or emotional causes not connected with MC at all?
Some claims appear have more merit than others. And a few
people have named their perpetrators as connected to private security services,
Air Force personnel, or huge military contractors such as Raytheon (likely
involved in producing some of these weapons). For example, Pat Mougey's
tormentors appear to be recruited by a security agency located on the street
where she lives. She reports some harassers let her know she is under surveillance.
(73) She believes they use commercially available, through-the-wall radar
to tape everything that goes on in the privacy of her own home. (74) Mougey
says she even saw herself through a window on the television screen in the
house next door. I was skeptical about this until I saw NSA high-tech surveillance
gadgetry on display in the Hollywood movie, "Enemy of the State."
A private detective knowledgeable in surveillance devices confirmed that
such gadgetry does exist in the real world and not just in the imaginations
of Hollywood writers.
"They have a device to control every part of the body,
including the throat," says Mougey. "I have been in the ER more
than once because my throat was closed up and I could not breathe."
I became convinced there may be truth in Mougey's claims by reading a 1987
report on the Attorney General's Conference on Less Than Lethal Weapons.
It revealed that "scientific knowledge of human physiology is progressing
to the point where it may soon be possible to target specific systems with
specific frequencies of electromagnetic radiation...sustained, extremely
low frequency (ELF) radiation [that] can produce nausea or disorientation..."
But so long as human experimentation in weapons development
remains subject to "national security" restrictions, it is impossible
to know for sure whether specific individuals are experimentees in government
or privatized operations. We do know, however, that our government spent
millions on electronic MC research. One hundred thirty boxes (130 cubic
feet) of classified documents on "behavioral experiments" the
CIA's Office of Research and Development (ORD) were located in 1978. They
were found after John Marks (author of The Search for the 'Manchurian Candidate')
requested ORD files "on behavioral research, including...activities
related to bio-electrics, electric or radio stimulation of the brain, electronic
destruction of memory, stereotaxic surgery, psychosurgery, hypnotism, parapsychology,
radiation, microwaves and ultrasonics." (76)
Rogue Scientific Groups
As I delved more into the scientific end of MC research, I
became more convinced that the U.S. military/industrial complex probably
has remote-control technology that can produce the torture Mougey and others
so vividly describe. A 1999 article by engineer Tom Bearden, "Mind
Control and EM Wave Polarization Transductions," corroborates my feeling:
"...rogue groups amongst Western clandestine mind control
researchers will probably arise if they have not already done so. They will
likely seek to increase their personal control and further isolate the programs
from orthodox government review and from government and legislative control.
They may even divert the research into highly illegal and unethical means,
because it furthers their own rogue agendas. That is how clandestine U.S.
government research can sometimes go sour, unless great care is exercised
by the oversight committees in the House and the Senate.
Sometimes when rogue groups do gain control and total secrecy
of a given new technological area, then what appears to be "U.S. government
operations" do start to encompass a criminal and unethical operations
[sic], hidden usually beneath the deep veil of high classification. Also,
if it's "scientific," no one is ever brought to justice, even
if the "evil science actions" are uncovered and publicly revealed."
Those who doubt the existence of classified MC technology
can draw their own conclusions from several official responses to requests
for information on NEM weapons research. Margo Cherney received a letter
from the Air Force in 1999 in response to her request for material on a
1970s Air Force project called "Communicating via the Microwave Auditory
Effect." In denying her request to declassify this material, the letter
said "unauthorized dislosure of the requested information could reasonably
be expected to cause damage to national security." (78) Eleanor White
received a letter from a member of the New York Assembly in 1998 that said,
"Unfortunately, information concerning what was referenced in your
letter is highly classified, and I am not at liberty to divulge such information
to the general public." (79)
In April 2000, White was able to discover a U.S. Navy contract
for Ultrasonic Acoustic Heterodyning Technology with American Technology
Corporation. According to the company's own publicity, hypersonic sound
technology "can target selected individuals in a group or in a noisy
environment and deliver audio to that person." (80) This technology
makes possible some of the sound effects White and others experience.
For several years CAHRA founder Cheryl Welsh has been trying
to organize a study of 500 alleged experimentees that would include medical
and psychiatric evaluations. Many in the CAHRA network are very fearful
of doctors because they have experienced terrible abuse in the medical system.
Welsh has struggled to convince them to join the study as she diligently
networks with EM victims in other countries and raises money to insure the
scientific viability of what would become a ground breaking study. People
whose symptoms have other causes need to be properly diagnosed and treated.
Pretenders and disinformation purveyors among the hundreds of people alleging
EM targeting need to be exposed -- either by their refusal to participate
in the study or by the objective evaluations of scientific and medical investigators.
Civilians Become "the Enemy"
Many CAHRA members report that their complaints to local police
have not gotten serious attention. In some cases this could be explained
by collusion between local law enforcement and federal authorities testing
NL weapons and surveillance systems in the community. Crusading Alaskan
environmentalist Nick Begich reports a secret agreement between the Department
of Defense and the Department of Justice to transfer NL weapons to local
law enforcement through the National Institute of Justice. (82)
Like an international Paul Revere, Begich has been circling
the globe clanging alarm bells to stimulate public debate on civilian control
of the military in the post-cold-war era:
"The weaving together of Department of Defense missions
with civilian Department of Justice missions is unprecedented. Not since
the civil war has the military machinery...been turned against United States
citizens...This raises serious questions regarding use of our Department
of Defense for domestic police actions, which may be a violation of constitutional
law by being in conflict with the narrowly-defined federal use of the military
'for the national defense." (83)
How did civilians become "the enemy" in peacetime?
In a 5/12/99 interview on ABC News, USPA member Lt. Col. John B. Alexander
was asked if he saw any domestic applications for NL weapons. "Absolutely,"
he answered. "In the U.S. today, we have a very large disenfranchised
population. The potential for civil disorder is quite high, in my estimation.
This is an area in which non-lethal weapons can play a vital role in restoring
order, protecting lives and property..."
Alexander directed the Non-Lethal Weapons Laboratory at Los
Alamos National Laboratory in the 1980s. He is the same knowledgeable military
man who wrote way back in December 1980 that "there are weapons systems
that operate on the power of the mind and whose lethal capacity has already
been demonstrated....The psychotronic weapon would be silent, difficult
to detect, and would require only a human operator as a power source."
Without any any public review process, a joint policy for
NL weapons was adopted in 1995. Highest priority was given to developing
unspecified technologies "most likely get dual use, i.e., law enforcement
and military applications." (85) A 1994 draft of the government's NL
policy authorized use of nonlethal weapons by our military in support of
domestic law enforcement. It chillingly replaced the Cold War concept of
an external "enemy" (requiring stringent national-security regulations)
with the relatively benign term "adversary," which could apply
to anyone, domestic or foreign. "Adversary is used above in its broadest
sense," this document says, "including those who are not declared
enemies but who are engaged in activities we wish to stop." (86)
The confluence of NL and high-tech electronic weaponry can
be gleaned from what little is available in the media. The July 7, 1997
issue of U.S. News and World Report reported that the Air Force alone plans
to spend more than $100 million by 2003 to research the "bioeffects"
of what it called "exotic" anti-personnel, NL weapons. The ghastly
technologies acknowledged in this article include blinding lasers (considered,
but rejected for use in Somalia), acoustic or sonic weapons modeled after
the Nazi's "vortex" technology (causing nausea, "pain, spasms
or even death"), RF weapons that induce epileptic seizures, "undetectable"
VLF devices that cause flulike symptoms, nausea and weakness, and "tunable"
microwave weapons that can "cook the enemy." (87)
In March 2001, the Pentagon went public with a portable people
zapper euphemistically called an "Active Denial System." Developed
by Ratheon Corporation and other Pentagon contractors for crowd dispersal,
this so-called NL weapon "could cook a person's eyeballs" if the
operator so desired. (88) To its credit, CBS News interspersed footage of
huge anti-Vietnam War demonstrations involving hundreds of thousands of
Americans in its announcement of this weapon. Comic strip character Pogo's
astute and much quoted observation, "We have seen the enemy and they
is us" was never more applicable.
"It's war, Jim, but not as we know it," in the 8/3/97
issue of The Scotsman, offers the following intriguing sentence: "Progress
on laser and acoustic technology has been rapid...and a number of weapons
are now off the design board and are being tested in secret."
Taxpayers footing the bill for this research have the right
to ask: On whom are these weapons being tested and are the subjects protected
under the Nuremberg Code, international laws and presidential executive
orders? (89) Eleanor White appropriately points out, "No government
agency will admit to being charged with ethical protection of military and
other government classified human test subjects." Could criminal, free-lance
experimentation be conducted by private enterpreneurs with security clearance
and on-the-job knowledge of how these weapons work?
In 1999 USA Today lifted the veil on a secret administrative
court that grants security clearances to employees of defense contractors.
"Felons gain access to the nation's secrets" was its provocative
headline. "Tens of thousands of military and contractor personnel are
cleared each year," it reported. In its study of 1500 decisions by
the Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals, the newspaper found clearances
were routinely bestowed on drug users, kidnappers, pedophiles, murders,
exhibitionists and other convicted sex offenders, chronic liars, and people
with histories of violence and/or convictions for criminal fraud involving
millions of dollars. (90)
Psyops Field Testing on Civilians?
Eleanor White believes the most bizarre harassment she experiences
amounts to psychological warfare. The unknown perpetrators, she says, occupy
a "shadow government" that includes some of the country's biggest
defense contractors and their intelligence operatives. "They are behavior
science-oriented," she explains, "in creating severe stress to
test our limits." She believes the perpetrators could be retired MK-Ultra
employees "who set up shop in private industry away from congressional
scrutiny," their paid agents from private security outfits, or even
criminal groups who have secured the technology on the military black market.
"The original MK-Ultra military/intelligence experimenters were forced
to share with the corporate world," she says, "and the sharing
has now quite a few branches."
In 1992, the first George Bush Administration added a little-known
regulation to its National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual
that reads, "Cover stories may be established for unacknowledged programs
in order to protect the integrity of the program from individuals who do
not have a need to know. Cover stories must be believable and cannot reveal
any information regarding the true nature of the contract. Cover stories
for Special Access Programs must have the approval of the PSO [Program Security
Officer] prior to dissemination." (91) This provision is quite alarming.
It means that unscrupulous "experimenters," hired by private companies
with Pentagon connections, have a green light to "lie by the book."
They can easily cover up the abuse of innocent people without any accountability
to elected civilian authorities.
"There is no punishment for rogue scientific groups,"
writes Bearden. "Shockingly, the U.S. government at the highest level
has shown...that mass crimes against U.S. civilians, perpetrated by portions
of the U.S. scientific community in direct conspiracy and in secret, will
likely be condoned. The perpetrators will not be indicted, tried, or convicted."
(Emphasis in the original)
He says further that:
"...in the "Big Science community, there can be
and there are rogue groups. Lots of them. There is deep cover, deep classification.
And there is very probably advanced mind control research and testing,
be it legal or illegal. Hopefully, most of it is legal and constrained.
However, some of it is almost certain to be illegal and ill constrained."
As news of this series disseminated throughout the MC survivor
network, academics and independent MC researchers phoned or wrote to offer
useful information gleaned from their own research. One such source is a
doctoral student in physics whose interest in neuroscience spans the last
decade. I will call him Smith as he does not want his real name used. Smith
believes that covert field testing of NEM weapons is combined with classic
surveillance techniques perfected during the Cold War. He directed me to
a "spy/counterspy" Web site dissecting FBI methods used to create
fear, passivity and immobilization. (93) They include constant harassment
to build up stress, total discrediting of his/her experiences by driving
the target "crazy," then labeling the target as a "paranoid
schizophrenic." The intended outcome of this treatment is depression,
withdrawal and the target's acquiescence in being controlled. Smith cites
the "learned helplessness model" of Martin Seligman, as the operant
conditioning used by MC experimenters whose identity is protected in "black"
Smith suggests that some alleged experimentees are being used
as the "prototypes" of a new controlled life, victims of a psychological
warfare operation aimed, not at a foreign "enemy," but at our
own citizenry. "Operatives get to train their mind-control and harassment
techniques on live prey," he continued, "without fear of adverse
consequences from a bungled operation."
He points out that some alleged experimentees, particularly
women, are the "ideal candidates" for this kind of operation:
"They live alone, are highly verbal (the more associative
one is, the easier it would no doubt be to drive her crazy), individualistic,
don't have good family relations, and have obedient relatives, often with
connections to the security services. It is easy for federal operatives
with top-secret security clearances to paint these people as lunatics in
order to be able to torture them with America's tax dollars. Indeed, after
the cold war ended, there was a vacuum for surveillance operatives who needed
to be doing something useful in order to justify their vast funding. What
could be more desirable from a federal operative's point of view than to
torture in absolute safety and secrecy a few unfortunate "freaks"
with the very latest in black-budget technology?" (95)
Assassination Mysteries and Mind Control
Remote viewer David Morehouse exposed the existence of the
CIA's Stargate "remote viewing" program in his 1996 book Psychic
Warrior. (96) He revealed that Stargate was a Special Access Program (SAP),
which requires the highest level of security clearance for Sensitive Compartmentalized
Information. (97) NEM technologies would come under the government's NL
research apparatus and are probably categorized as SAPs. Morehouse was persecuted
as a whistleblower, including involuntary hospitalization and severe psychiatric
abuse. The public campaign to discredit him was led by none other than John
Alexander, the "father" of NL weapons. (98)
Interestingly, Morehouse also told attorney William Pepper
that a sniper team of low-level CIA operatives in the U.S. Special Forces
was responsible for the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968.
(99) Earlier installments of this series have touched on how mind control
might have been the secret weapon used to commit and cover up the assassinations
of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy and Dr. King. A most provocative
and easily accessible article that links MC with these crimes (as well as
the assassination of John Lennon and the mass murders in Jonestown, Guyana)
was written by Curt Rowlett. It is titled "Project MKULTRA: Did the
U.S. Government Actually Create Programmed Assassins?" (100)
Was Admiral Boorda -- like the Kennedy brothers and Dr. King
-- just the latest political "adversary" marked for extinction
by undemocratic shadow institutions operating above and beyond the law?
More than 25 years ago, Senator Frank Church foresaw an abyss
of no return. Today Thomas Bearden, a military man who most probably has
seen the best and worst of human beings, warns that unregulated MC technology
could be the undoing of our civilization:
"Human beings are still human beings. All the good and
evil is still there, regardless of the group. The stage settings change,
but the cast of characters and the play never change.
It's sad, but 'twas ever thus. Hidden parts of our own governments
-- and other governments throughout the world -- are no different from the
old medieval groups, where nobles etc. were always plotting against the
king, or using the king's power for their own nefarious end. The rogue groups
today are no different from all the scheming and conniving groups that destroyed
the Roman Empire. Great empires fall from within, not usually from without!"

that was part of a murder coverup. See Washington Post, 6/8/96, p. A13.
