PLEASE READ AND EDUCATE YOURSELF AND TELL A FRIEND. THE INFORMATION IS TRUE. IT IS TIME FOR AMERICA TO TAKE NOTICE, LISTEN, AND LEARN, SO THE NEXT GENERATION DOES NOT EXPERIENCE WHAT WE ARE GOING THROUGH. HELP STOP DIRECTED ENERGY MIND CONTROL /ELECTRONIC HARASSMENT PROGRAMS FROM CONTINUING.
Washington Post covers mind control victims: a significant step forward in gaining the attention of the U.S. media to their serious plight both in this country and around the world.
The January 14, 2007 Washington Post Magazine article, Mind Games by Sharon Weinberger is stunning in it's coverage. The article is announced on the top front page of the Washington Post with the heading; "IS IT PARANOIA? OR THE PENTAGON? To most, the people who think the government is beaming voices into their heads are paranoid loonies in foil helmets. Trouble is, the govenment has pursued weapons that could do just that."
The full cover page of the Washington Post Magazine displays the picture and heading "THOUGHT WARS One thing is certain about the emerging subculture of self-described mind-control victims: Their agony is real" and the full article encompasses amost 7,500 words. The full article is posted below and is well worth reading. Weinberger seriously investigated the very controversial issue of alleged government mind control victims, a topic that mainstream media has avoided or has dismissed as conspiracy nut cases without further examination.
The article has opened the door to much needed debate and serious, impartial reporting and investigation. Not many human rights issues make it to the front pages of a national newspaper. The article represents a major step forward in mind control activism. A sincere thank you to Sharon Weinberger for your long hours of research and to the Washington Post for this very special opportunity!
The article is an entertaining and realistic read, while at the same time, an accurate description of the psychological devastation and pain-filled lives of mind control victims. There were indepth interviews of Harlan Girard, director of International Committee on Offensive Microwave Weapons (website at www.icomw.org) and Gloria Naylor, author of 1996, a book on her experience of mind control. Naylor bravely and openly discussed taking antipsychotic medication for the voices she heard but the medicine did not stop the voices. The mental health field has helped many people who report hearing voices but most mind control victims report experiences like Naylor, and have not found relief from the voices by using medication. Although most mental health experts do not believe the government is behind technology to cause the phenoma of hearing voices, most victims and their support groups leave it up to victims to decide what to do in regards to trying antipsychotic medication or seeking out mental health experts. Many desperately try medication to obtain relief.
Ed Moore, a young medical doctor described his inspiring efforts to study for an electrical engineering degree inspite of voices that taunt him 24/7. There were several shorter comments by many other victims and also military and psychiatric experts. Weinberger described intelligent, talented, educated victims of mind control and that most are not mentally ill, as so often portrayed in the media. The experts in the article described victims as having "highly emotional and gripping experiences" and as a result, victims provide a "compelling narative" to explain their perceptions of the experiences.
As an alternative explanation and the one that most mind control victims firmly believe, Weinberger also provided several sections on government research into mind control technologies such as beaming voices into peoples heads. Here are some relevant excerpts from the article, followed by short comments or questions IN CAPITAL LETTERS, for future debate and investigation.
The biggest hurdle for TIs is getting people to take their concerns seriously. A proposal made in 2001 by Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio) to ban "psychotronic weapons" (another common term for mind-control technology) was hailed by TIs as a great step forward. But the bill was widely derided by bloggers and columnists and quickly dropped.
Doug Gordon, Kucinich's spokesman, would not discuss mind control other than to say the proposal was part of broader legislation outlawing weapons in space. The bill was later reintroduced, minus the mind control. "It was not the concentration of the legislation, which is why it was tightened up and redrafted," was all Gordon would say.
WHY WAS WEINBERGER UNABLE TO OBTAIN BACKGROUND INFORMATION ON A PROPOSED BILL FOR BANNING MIND CONTROL WEAPONS?
Concerns about microwaves and mind control date to the 1960s, when the U.S. government discovered that its embassy in Moscow was being bombarded by low-level electromagnetic radiation. In 1965, according to declassified Defense Department documents, the Pentagon, at the behest of the White House, launched Project Pandora, top-secret research to explore the behavioral and biological effects of low-level microwaves. For approximately four years, the Pentagon conducted secret research: zapping monkeys; exposing unwitting sailors to microwave radiation; and conducting a host of other unusual experiments (a sub-project of Project Pandora was titled Project Bizarre). The results were mixed, and the program was plagued by disagreements and scientific squabbles. The "Moscow signal," as it was called, was eventually attributed to eavesdropping, not mind control, and Pandora ended in 1970. And with it, the military's research into so-called non-thermal microwave effects seemed to die out, at least in the unclassified realm.
But there are hints of ongoing research: An academic paper written for the Air Force in the mid-1990s mentions the idea of a weapon that would use sound waves to send words into a person's head. "The signal can be a 'message from God' that can warn the enemy of impending doom, or encourage the enemy to surrender," the author concluded.
In 2002, the Air Force Research Laboratory patented precisely such a technology: using microwaves to send words into someone's head. That work is frequently cited on mind-control Web sites. Rich Garcia, a spokesman for the research laboratory's directed energy directorate, declined to discuss that patent or current or related research in the field, citing the lab's policy not to comment on its microwave work.
In response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed for this article, the Air Force released unclassified documents surrounding that 2002 patent -- records that note that the patent was based on human experimentation in October 1994 at the Air Force lab, where scientists were able to transmit phrases into the heads of human subjects, albeit with marginal intelligibility. Research appeared to continue at least through 2002. Where this work has gone since is unclear -- the research laboratory, citing classification, refused to discuss it or release other materials.
The official U.S. Air Force position is that there are no non-thermal effects of microwaves. Yet Dennis Bushnell, chief scientist at NASA's Langley Research Center, tagged microwave attacks against the human brain as part of future warfare in a 2001 presentation to the National Defense Industrial Association about "Future Strategic Issues."
"That work is exceedingly sensitive" and unlikely to be reported in any unclassified documents, he says.
Meanwhile, the military's use of weapons that employ electromagnetic radiation to create pain is well-known, as are some of the limitations of such weapons. In 2001, the Pentagon declassified one element of this research: the Active Denial System, a weapon that uses electromagnetic radiation to heat skin and create an intense burning sensation. So, yes, there is technology designed to beam painful invisible rays at humans, but the weapon seems to fall far short of what could account for many of the TIs' symptoms. While its exact range is classified, Doug Beason, an expert in directed-energy weapons, puts it at about 700 meters, and the beam cannot penetrate a number of materials, such as aluminum. Considering the size of the full-scale weapon, which resembles a satellite dish, and its operational limitations, the ability of the government or anyone else to shoot beams at hundreds of people -- on city streets, into their homes and while they travel in cars and planes -- is beyond improbable.
But, given the history of America's clandestine research, it's reasonable to assume that if the defense establishment could develop mind-control or long-distance ray weapons, it almost certainly would. And, once developed, the possibility that they might be tested on innocent civilians could not be categorically dismissed.
BASED ON THIS PRELIMINARY REPORTING BY WEINBERGER, MUCH MORE RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATION INTO CLASSIFIED MIND CONTROL RESEARCH AND GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABILITY IS CALLED FOR.
A former Green Beret who served in Vietnam, Alexander went on to a number of national security jobs, and rubbed shoulders with prominent military and political leaders. . . . Alexander also is intrigued by the possibility of using electronic means to modify behavior. The dilemma of the war on terrorism, he notes, is that it never ends. So what do you do with enemies, such as those at Guantanamo: keep them there forever? That's impractical. Behavior modification could be an alternative, he says.
"Maybe I can fix you, or electronically neuter you, so it's safe to release you into society, so you won't come back and kill me," Alexander says. It's only a matter of time before technology allows that scenario to come true, he continues. "We're now getting to where we can do that."
