"Report: Nonlethal Weapons Could Target Brain, Mimic Schizophrenia"

extract:
"Application of the microwave hearing technology could facilitate a private message transmission. It may be useful to provide a disruptive condition to a person not aware of the technology. Not only might it be disruptive to the sense of hearing, it could be psychologically devastating if one suddenly heard ‘voices within one’s head.’"

Voices in your head disturbing? Heck, yeah, considering it’s something most people associate with schizophrenia. The age-old question is whether such a weapon is possible. According to the report, it’s not only possible, it’s already been demonstrated in crude form:

"It is a small city in the South of France... Not Canada, YET

Prompted by the documented revelations contained in the book written by H.P. Albarelli (HERE), the US State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research has received a confidential inquiry from the office of Erard Corbin de Mangoux, head of the French intelligence agency, Directorate General for External Security (DGSE), concerning a recent account of American government complicity in a mysterious 1951 incident of mass insanity in France.

According to an official with the DGSE, the French counterpart of the CIA, “If the details of this book’s revelations prove to be true, it will be very upsetting for the people of Pont-St.-Esprit, as well as all French citizens. That agencies of the United States government would deliberately target innocent foreign citizens for such an experiment is a violation of a number of international laws and treaties.”

EDGEWOOD EXPERIMETS - A&E Investigative Report - Documentary

"Between 1955 and 1975, the U.S. Army used 7,000 enlisted soldiers as human guinea pigs for experiments involving a wide array of biological and chemical warfare agents. These tests were conducted jointly by the U.S. Army Intelligence Board and the Chemical Warfare Laboratories at Edgewood Arsenal's research facility in Maryland. Approximately 3,500 of these soldiers were given doses of powerful mind-altering psychochemicals, including LSD, PCP, and BZ. These "volunteer" test subjects were not told which drugs they were given, and were not fully informed of the extreme physical and psychological effects these drugs would have on them. The images presented here are stills from documentary footage of these experiments filmed by the U.S. Army. If copyright becomes an issue on this video upload, it will be deleted immediately."

Army’s Hallucinogenic Weapons Unveiled - “Agent Buzz” - odorless and invisible, and there is currently no means of detecting it.

As more and more indications emerge that hallucinogenics have been used in the "torture program", an article worth reading:
"Army’s Hallucinogenic Weapons Unveiled"
by Sharon Weinberger - April 6, 2007 - WIRED - Danger Room


Extract:
"Advocates of using chemical agents in nonlethal warfare are increasing, making now a good time to start reviewing the historical record. A recently published book on the Army’s infamous "Edgewood Experiments" involving hallucinogenic agents like LSD may help shed more light on the debate. The infamous CIA work, MK ULTRA, is often considered synonymous with all government LSD experimentation. But the historical record is far more complex."

More on the use of hallucinogenic chemical weapon BZ or "Agent Buzz":
"Agent Buzz was tested between 1959 to 1975 on some twenty-eight hundred US soldiers at several locations. It proved extremely effective as an incapacitant. The physical effects are increased heart rates, pupil dilation, blurred vision, dry skin and mouth, increased temperature, and flushing of skin – as a med school mnemonic has it “blind as a bat, dry as a bone, hot as Hades, red as a beet.”

The Constant Gardener Trust

The Constant Gardener Trust (HERE) was established in 2004 soon after the filming of The Constant Gardener near Nairobi, Kenya, Africa.

The film is based on the John le Carré novel of the same name. It deals with the issues of international politics, unethical breach of human rights, corporate murder , cover-ups and the conspiracies with secret services.

Carré writes in the book's afterword:
"'by comparison with the reality, my story is as tame as a holiday postcard".
The book is dedicated to Yvette Pierpaoli, a French activist who died during the course of her aid work.
In Kibera and Loiyangalani, the situation of the inhabitants affected the crew so much it decided to set up the Trust in order to give thanks to the community for their help during filming.
“So who has got away with murder? Not, of course, the British government. They merely covered up, as one does, the offensive corpses. Though not literally. That was done by person or persons unknown. So who has committed murder? Not, of course, the highly respectable firm of KDH Pharmaceutical, which has enjoyed record profits this quarter… and has now licensed ZimbaMed of Harare…. to continue testing Dypraxa in Africa. No, there are no murders in Africa. Only regrettable deaths. And from those deaths we derive the benefits of civilization, benefits we can afford so easily… because those lives were bought so cheaply.” -closing lines from ‘The Constant Gardener’ (2005)

Assassins, Drugs and "mistakes"

First chapter from the book:
A TERRIBLE MISTAKE: The Murder of Frank Olson
by H.P.Albarelli

"The techniques employed will vary according to whether the subject is unaware of his danger, aware but unguarded, or guarded. The most efficient accident, in simple assassination, is a fall of 75 feet or more onto a hard surface. Elevator shafts, stairwells, unscreened windows and bridges will serve. "
-CIA Assassination Manual, 1952

We’ll name them as they jump out of windows.
-U.S. Rep. Karl E. Mundt, 1948

Albarelli is a graduate of Antioch Law School. He is an expert on the history of the CIA's behavior modification and assassination programs of the 1950s.

The CIA and allies in the pursuit of methods to “induce brain concussion " - WIRED - May 11, 2010

On May 6, 2010, after a Freedom of Information Act request and 30 years after it was written, a 17-page document detailing the involvement of the Pentagon in the CIA’s infamous Cold War mind-control experiments was released.

The document , “Experimentation Programs conducted by the Department of Defense That Had CIA Sponsorship or Participation and That Involved the Administration to Human Subjects of Drugs Intended for Mind-Control or Behavior-Modification Purposes,” was prepared in 1977 by the General Counsel of the US Department of Defense.

Although most of the details of the CIA’s infamous mind-control experiments have been revealed in earlier CIA papers, the recent released documents details the involvement of the Department of Defense in the CIA projects.

The studies on to “induce brain concussion" were part of a project initially funded by the Navy and shortly thereafter transferred entirely to the CIA, because it involved “human experiments not easily justifiable on medical-therapeutic grounds.”

Rome, Italy - 2007 - In the Cage

Genesis in Rome, 2007 - In The Cage - Phil Collins
From the album "The Lamb Lies Down On Brodway"- 1974. (Phil Collins-Mike Rutherford-Tony Banks-Daryl Stuermer-Chester Thompson)



In The Cage (The Lamb Lies Down On Brodway)

I got sunshine in my stomach
Like I just rocked my baby to sleep.
I got sunshine in my stomach
But I can't keep me from creeping sleep,
Sleep, deep in the deep.

He wakes in a cold sweat with a strong urge to vomit. There's no sign of the cocoon and he can see more of the cave about him. There is much more of the glowing water dripping from the roof and
Ctites and stalagmites are forming and decomposing at an alarming rate all around him.

Rockface moves to press my skin
White liquid turn sour within
Turn fast - turn sour
Turn sweat - turn sour.
Must tell myself that I'm not here.
I'm drowning in a liquid fear.
Bottled in a strong compression,
My distortion shows obsession
In the cave.
Get me out of this cave!

As fear and shock register, he assures himself that self-control will provide some security, but this thought is abandoned as the stalactites and stalagmites lock into a fixed position, forming
E whose bars are moving in towards him.

If I keep my self-control,
I'll be safe in my soul.
And the childhood belief
Brings a moment's relief,
But my cynic soon returns
And the lifeboat burns.
My spirit just never learns.

Stalactites, stalagmites
Shut me in, lock me tight.
Lips are dry, throat is dry.
Feel like burning, stomach churning,
I'm dressed up in a white costume
Padding out leftover room.
Body stretching, feel the wretching
In the cage
Get me out of the cage!

At one moment there is a flash of light and he sees an infinite network of cages all strung together by a ropelike material.
In the glare of a light,
I see a strange kind of sight;
Of cages joined to form a star
Each person can't go very far;
All tied to their things
They're netted by their strings,
Free to flutter in memories of their wasted wings.

As the rocky bars press in on rael's body, he sees his brother John outside, looking in. John's face is motionless despite screams for help, but in his vacant expression a tear of blood forms an
Ckles down his cheek. then he calmly walks away leaving rael to face the pains which are beginning to sweep through his body.

Outside the cage I see my brother John,
He turns his head so slowly round.
I cry out help! before he can be gone,
And he looks at me without a sound.
And I shout out 'John please help me!'
But he does not even want to try to speak.
I'm helpless in my violent rage
And a silent tear of blood dribbles down his cheek,
And I watch him turn away and leave the cage.
My little runaway.

(raindrops keep failing on my head, they keep falling on my...)

In a trap, feel a strap
Holding still. pinned for kill.
Chances narrow that I'll make it,
In the cushioned straight-jacket.
Just like 22nd street,
They got me by my neck and feet.
Pressures building, can't take more.
My headaches charge, earaches roar.
In this pain
Get me out of this pain.

If I could change to liquid,
I could fill the cracks up in the rocks.
I know that I am solid
And I am my own bad luck.

However, just as JOHN walks out of sight, the cage dissolves and rael is left spinning like a top.

Outside John disappears, my cage dissolves,
Without any reason my body revolves.

Keep on turning,
Keep on turning,
Turning around,
Spinning around.

(round, round, round, round...)

Torture, torturers and the "Super Power Syndrome"

Dr. Robert Jay Lifton, author of "Super Power Syndrome: America's Apocalyptic Confrontation with the World" talks about the American sense of entitlement to the world ultimate hegemony and how this sense of omnipotence lead to embracing torture and the ideological totalism where torture is performed for "higher purposes".
Embracing the ideology of Super Power Syndrome, torture, murder and other atrocities:


THE CULT MENTALITY : BEING "SPECIAL"

He was blind of one eye, very resentful and had a megalomaniac perception of himself. His policies included assassinations, forced drugging, imprisonment of dissent, gassing of humans and animals, torture techniques going from having people being hung upside down to being given shock therapy and a of variety of other crimes and offenses from the murder of a whole family to the shooting of police officers, among them the chief of the National Police.

His followers acted in teams and ambitious young graduates from top universities joined them. In the late 1980s there were accusations of deception of recruits, and of holding members against their will and even of murdering a member who tried to leave.

They saw themselves as "special" people with a special mission.
They carried on the "RUSH HOUR" ATTACKS in subway stations. .
They were/are followers of Shoko Asahara, leader of the cult Aum Shinrikyo.

Dr. Robert J. Lifton , author of "The Nazi Doctors: Medical Killing and the Psychology of Genocide" and "Destroying the World to Save It", among other books, addressed the issue of doomsday cults such as Aum Shinrikyo.

On Destructive Cults - March 17, 2000



The attack was usually referred to in the Japanese media as the Subway Sarin Incident, the Sarin attack on the Tokyo subway. It was an act of domestic terrorism perpetrated by members of Aum Shinrikyo on March 20, 1995.
The Aum Shinrikyo is a Japanese religious movement that was founded by Shoko Asahara in 1984.

Among the main perpetrators of the attack:
Ikuo Hayashi - senior medical doctor at the Ministry of Science and Technology.
Kenichi Hirose - Phd in Physics
Toru Toyoda - Master's Degree in Physics
Yasuo Hayashi - Physics graduate from Tokai University's Engineering Department
Yasuo Hayashi - Artificial Intelligence Graduate - Kogakuin University; after graduation he traveled to India where he studied yoga

Other topics of reference:
Sakamoto family Murder - 1989

Takaji Kunimatsu, chief of the National Police Agency shooting - 1995

Judges gassing - June 27, 1994 - a computer-controlled system released a cloud of sarin, a nerve agent, over a dormitory that was the residence of three judges sitting on a panel hearing a lawsuit over a real-estate dispute in which Aum Shinrikyo was the defendant. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/EID/vol5no4/olson.htm

"A" - A documentaries by Tatsuya Mori - followed by "A2" -
(2006)- "My purpose with 'A2' was different," he says. "Rather than explain Aum, I wanted to show how Japanese society has deteriorated." says Tatsuya Mori
The subject of the two documentaries is the religious cult Aum Shinrikyo and the author's approach looks into how one country changed for the worse after acts of megalomania by the a secretive group.

Sales People: Selling and Buying human beings

"The Pakistani tribesmen slaughtered a sheep in honor of their guests, Arabs and Chinese Muslims famished from fleeing U.S. bombing in the Afghan mountains. But their hosts had ulterior motives: to sell them to the Americans, said the men who are now prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. "(Associeted Press - 2005- http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:3z3DBRyFSKwJ:www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8049868/+americanns+paying+bounty+guantamo&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=ca&client=firefox-a

Murat Kurnaz was sold to the Americans at the age of 19. He was then held in extrajudicial detention, tortured at the U.S. military base in Kandahar, Afghanistan and in the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, Cuba for four years.
A German Parliamentary inquiry is investigating the extent to which German military and counter-terrorism authorities participated in the American Program of Torture and Extraordinary Rendition.
