All of the above are well worth reading.
I put my comments on the below excerpts in brackets.
[You-Know-Who, who would "know" by "non-local" means, told me that Alex is "Crazy with a Capital C. He sees snakes in his carpet. REALLY crazy." Of course that kind of thing is just another 'symptom,' from another perspective. ? I will find you, because I have them on disk, the three articles he wrote about the McMartin PreSchool case. I don't know if he's crazy or wrong or not. I only know I found them very shocking.]
Alex Constantine, a Los Angeles reporter, investigated the McMartin child abuse case and was subsequently targeted with electromagnetic intelligence tools. In spite of the discrediting and disrupting techniques that he has endured to this day, Constantine's reporting now includes two books on the topic of government mind control.
["Crazy" is an easy term to assign, apparently:]
The April 10, 1988 San Francisco Chronicle reported "Secret Agent for the Feds Now Lives in Fear of Them." Rex Niles was an FBI whistleblower and his "unprecedented cooperation" led to the conviction of 19 industry buyers and supervisors on fraud, tax evasion and kickback charges. Government officials estimate that Niles had handed over millions in under-the-table payments of leading electronics contractors. He participated in the Federal Witness Protection Program and now he is suing the government. He reported "an assault of microwaves and x-rays" and had documented proof of high levels of radiation. He was harassed in many ways, including lack of sleep and he described a noise campaign which included "aggravating his conscious as well as my subconscious mind." [...] Rex Niles was a competent and successful businessman and he has physical proof of high radiofrequency levels. Yet he was considered mentally ill and his claim was not investigated.
... A nurse filed a workmen's compensation claim in 1996 because of a diagnosed allergy to latex gloves. Electronic harassment began a few months later. This nurse reported a cluster of symptoms that matched known intelligence harassment techniques. She reported harassment such as numerous break-ins of her car and apartment with objects rearranged, phone tampering, inexplicable electrical equipment problems, noise campaigns which disrupted her sleep and discrediting techniques of physical electromagnetic harassment. If she naturally discussed her symptoms, it was designed to sound paranoid and "crazy". Physical evidence was disregarded and her complaint was ignored as that of a sick person.
While the superpowers have denied the existence of the weapons on one level, there are many articles to the contrary. And it seems that the United States has the lead in this international arms race. For example, U.S. non-proliferation experts have categorized acoustic and directed energy weapons as "highly dangerous technologies", in order to control the arms sales. (Opall,1997,16.) And since the 1990s, there are numerous articles have been written about the so called new nonlethal technologies, which include electromagnetic weapons. It can be concluded that the classified technology is now going online and consequently there has been some declassification at an international level.
Public awareness has been slow. Here is just one example. France is involved in NATO research on this topic. They have begun to implement nonlethal strategy into their military doctrine. A classified study in 1995 listed 50 types of weapons including acoustic and electromagnetic, psychological and persuasive weapons ("France's Non-Lethal",1996,286). The president of France, Jacques Chirac described the weapons as "science fiction". The public has had a difficult time figuring out the facts on electromagnetic weapons when conflicting statements are made by government officials who may not be aware of the classified technology.
China experts have discussed electromagnetic weapons. "...weapons systems produced by the third military revolution mainly used sound, electromagnetism, ...they possess enormous military potential.(Pillsbury,1997). Russia, China, Ukraine, the U.K., Australia, and France reportedly have advanced RF programs and Germany , Sweden, South Korea, Taiwan and Israel are said to have emerging programs..." ("Emerging Threat",1998). Several articles support the fact that electromagnetic weapons are here to stay.
In a much quoted speech made in 1974, Fleet Admiral Groshkov of the USSR, considered the "father" of modern Soviet navy, stated that "the country that best exploits the electromagnetic spectrum will win the next war." (Herron,1984,64) Proliferation and the development of countermeasures have led to an escalating arms race. To a certain extent, the country with the money can buy this technology, but the superpowers have the leading edge technology. It is available on the international market and is proliferating at a very fast pace. (Dunigan,1996,15). This is another factor that will affect nonlethal strategic policy development.
Most of this technology has been classified until recently and little public protest or input on this topic can be found in the literature. Here is one of the few international politics position today on electromagnetic mind control. "World opinion is not ready for dealing appropriately with the problems coming from the possibility of direct access to the human mind." (Opall,1993,4.)
The alarming problem with electromagnetic mind control has been articulated by Russian officials as follows. "As far as it has become possible to probe and correct psychic contents of human beings despite their will and consciousness by instrumental means... results having been achieved can get out of [our] control and be used with inhumane purposes of manipulating psyches, the [Russian] paper stated." (Opall,1993,4)
"The microwave bomb, which works by emitting a massive pulse of radio energy, would render humans unconscious by scrambling neural paths in the brain but would not cause lasting injury." -- Campbell, Christy. (1992,Sept 27). Microwave bomb that does not kill. Sunday Telegraph.p6.
"Chinese Views of Future Warfare: Prepared Testimony by Dr. Michael Pillsbury, Associate Fellow National Defense University Before the Senate Intelligence Committee. ...Radiation Combat--"In the wars of the past, the power to inflict casualties mainly depended on the effects of kinetic energy and thermal energy; but the weapon systems produced by the third military revolution mainly use sound, electromagnetism, radiation, and other destructive mechanisms. The main radiation weapons are laser weapons, microwave weapons, particle beam weapons and subsonic wave weapons;they possess enormous military potential. ...Vice President of the Russian Academy of Military Science Vladimir Slipchenko [stated that] ...By directing energy emission at a target it is possible to turn an enemy division into a herd of frightened idiots...electromagnetic weapons...ionizing (plasma ) weapons...our 'likely friends' in the West and the East are developing new weapons and means of employing them." -- Pillsbury, Michael.(1997, Sept.18)Senate Intelligence Committee. Federal News Service. Lexis-Nexis.
A classified nonlethal weapons study by France included a "list of around 50 types of such weapons placed into three categories: those that neutralize personnel... ...Other sub-systems are acoustic weapons; computer viruses and disruptive agents; psychological and persuasive weapons." -- No author.(1996,Apr.18).France's Non-Lethal Options.Intelligence Newsletter. Indigo Publications.;N.286.
"Examples include weapons that...infrasound waves that disorient civilians for crowd control and psychological operations,... Co-chaired by conservative luminaries like former UN ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick and an array of former generals, admirals, and defense secretaries, the council formed a nonlethality policy review group in 1990 that bent the ears of Vice President Dan Quayle, Chief of Staff John Sununu, and National Security Advisor Brent Scowcroft, persuading the Bush administration to establish a Nonlethality Task Force under the secretary of defense. ...Research has been actively pursued for the past several years at Lawrence Livermore and Los Alamos National laboratories... Like the Strategic Defense Initiative a decade ago, nonlethality exercises a seductive promise to render the enemy 'impotent and obsolete'... -- Sommer, Mark.(1994, Feb.17).Nonlethal Weapons Offer a Faustian Bargain.Christian Science Monitor.p19.
"The two doctors[Dr. Nick Lewer and Dr. Steven Schofield, Bradford University Peace Studies Dept.]-whose survey of the strategic, technological, ethical and environmental issues arising from the use of non-lethal weapons was published yesterday-say there is an urgent need for awareness and political debate to determine the proper ground rules for their use. ...Research and development of new weapons is proceeding apace, in what amount to an almost unseen arms race." -- Simister, David.(1997,Apr.15).UK:Lethal Warning on New Breed of Weapons. Yorkshire Post.
"Security classification makes it difficult to be very specific about the technologies. We know that all of the U.S. armed services...are working on weapons projects that could be described under the heading non-lethal technologies and that at least some of these projects have parallels in other nations," said Professor Harvey Sapolsky, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, in a recent report.[Dr. Sapolsky also with SIPRI,Stockholm International Peace Research Institute]." -- Winton, Neil.(1995,May22).

[Note: friends who were in the Vietnam war confess to literally being made into drug addicts as a result of having to take drugs to stay awake for many days on end, for example, and then drugs to sleep when they briefly could; then they'd drink to forget; and we wonder why so many of them came back totally screwed up.]
[U.S. Air Force Maj. Norman] Routanen has proposed using "very powerful microwave devices to confuse, disable, or even kill the enemy." The report by the Georgetown University panel on combating terrorism similarly proposes "techniques to impair brain functions." Navy physician Capt. Paul E. Tyler sees an opposite use for electromagnetic radiation: he suggests that exposing U.S. military personnel or their allies to electromagnetic radiation might allow them to act 'with minimal rest and still maintain peak performance."Efforts to create a super soldier are not as far-fetched as they sound, nor are they new. Members of the navy's SEALS--its elite special-forces unit--took dexedrine to stay awake for several days on missions during the Vietnam War. Since at least 1954, various Defense Department agencies have conducted hundreds of experiments on ways of enabling troops to endure extremely taxing conditions. -- Miller, Marc S.(1987,Aug.).

The[NATO Nonlethal Weapon Technologies for Peace Support Operations,1996 Study. The April 16th study was approved during a semiannual meeting in Brussels of NATO national armaments directors] study lists 10 categories of technology that offer potential for industrial collaboration among NATO countries. These are: containment devices and entanglers; dazzle lasers, including strobe lights and holograms; markers; ...and odors." -- Tigner, Brooks.(1996,Apr.29).NATO Group Pushes, Pentagon Pulls Nonlethal Efforts;Alliance Study Urges Nations To Collaborate on Weapons.Defense News.pg12.
This new "non-lethal' arsenal includes devices that stop engines from afar, capture hostage-takers, push cars off roads, knock down attackers, control crowds and prisoners and incapacitate field troops and small populations. ...In the US, the FBI has ordered Myotron "Widow Makers" -a powerful new type of stun gun that knocks down men, tigers and even elephants for several crucial minutes(time to get away or call for help) without harm. ...Humans on whom it has been tested, say it feels like millions of tiny needles racing through their body. Brain signals are scrambled and all voluntary muscles are incapacitated."...Mr. William Gunby, "They are legal to the public by US federal law and we are re selling them around the world." But what if the US$200 (S$335) Myotron falls into the hands of robbers or rapists? ...the Vortex Cannon was designed to fire a smoke ring-like charge of air spinning faster than the speed of sound.Inside the barrel of air is a shock wave which cannot be stopped by anything built by man. ..America had already begun a highly secret vortex programme called Project Squid in 1940. The US Army and Navy have top-secret vortex projects underway at Camp Pendleton, California but will not discuss them. Now Swedish researchers have miniaturized and refined the Vortex so it can blow cars off a road, engulf, knock down and sicken rioters or deliver gas at the speed of sound. -- Laytner, Ron.(1998,Jan.4).

"The advent into the world's arsenals of directed energy weapons may be as revolutionary as was the introduction of the other great weapon developments of the 20th century--the machine-gun and the atomic bomb,"according to the former head of the Defense intelligence Agency(DIA, Leonard Perroots. ...According to U.S. experts, the Soviet Union has the edge over the United States in developing what is known as "directed energy weapons" and "Radiofrequency weapons." -- Debusmann, Bernard.(1990,Mar.28).Beam Weapons Predicted to Revolutionize War, Spur Arms Trade.Reuter Library Report BC cycle.

"Today there is a new class of radically new and important radio frequency weapons(RFW) which merits your attention as it emerges. ...This is particularly true of the newly emerging threat of radiofrequency weapons. And even more importantly, we must develop countermeasures before such weapons are used against us." -- Prepared Testimony by Lieutenant General Robert L Schweitzer U.S. Army (Retired) Before the Joint Economic Committee.(1997,June17). Federal News Service.Lexis-Nexis.
"Susan Blackmore states: "Suddenly, prospect of magnetic mind control seem an awful lot worse than the idea of being abducted by imaginary aliens". ...[Scientist, Michael] Persinger was employed by the US national security establishment to develop behaviour-modifying electromagnetic weapons under project "Sleeping Beauty". He came to the attention of the defense industry after he published a paper entitled "Possible cardiac driving by an external rotating magnetic field" in 1973. Captain Paul Tyler, the Director of the US Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute, wrote in 1986 of a technique employed by national security establishment to disrupt "the electrical signal in cardiac muscle", to produce "complete asystole with a resultant fatal outcome". -- Krawczyk, Glenn.(1994,Dec.17).Mind Control. New Scientist. p.50.
"There are indications that (electro-magnetic weapons) may have adverse affects on the brain," she[Doswald-Beck] said. ...Louise Doswald-Beck, deputy head of the legal division of the Geneva-based ICRC, said the international community had scored a major breakthrough last year when it banned blinding laser weapons before they came on the market. ...that new directed-energy weapons threatened the status quo. ...all new weapons should be scrutinized to see if they contravened the humanitarian principles of causing unnecessary suffering or being indiscriminate in nature, she said. ...humanitarian law exerted only moral pressure on weapons-makers and governments by stigmatizing new and inhumane tools of war." -- Della-Giacoma, Jim.(1996,May30).

[from a personal account of another person:]
When this was occurring in Florida during and after 1984, one of voice-persons was very prominently seen in my mind. He was dubbed "Peter" because he was so German-looking and blond., and could have been Heidi's Peter in the childhood story "Heidi". As I have said before, he could have been a poster boy for German genes. He was a very good-looking man, in his 20s or 30s, a no-nonsense kind of guy but he had a quick mind and a fairly good sense of humor. I actually saw this man in the late 80s or very early 90s, driving a jeep down a road near where I lived in Fort Pierce, FL. He was in a black jeep without a hood, so I could see him plainly. He, made a very big gesture of putting his finger to his nose, and kept it there as he drove by. I was shocked. I felt this was his goodbye to me because I do not recall his actual voice or his mind-picture being in my head again. (There were imitations by others, however). This was not the first time one of these "voices" have told me goodbye. They told me months earlier when they would be leaving and that is when, indeed, they left. It is my personal feeling that some of these "people-voices" are in the military. Perhaps 4-5 of them actually said goodbye but there were only two remarkable good-byes from these guys. Most of them never said goodbye. Two others indicated they were leaving I only believed one of them. This is a very long, long story. It has spanned years and years.
[from a different article:] Our focus is on the similarities of the complaints being received -- similarities which Federal and State legislators, the courts, the FBI, local law enforcement agencies, the medical and psychiatric professions, and organizations such as the ACLU and Amnesty International have so far chosen to ignore.
We frankly find it curious that more attention and creditability is being accorded purported victims of UFO experiences and spectral visitations, than to persons who complain of systematic harassment and experimentation by the U.S. Government, involving technologies which the U.S. Government is only now grudgingly admitting to possess. These complaints require investigation. In due course (and provided financial support is obtained), we hope to be able to acquire the technology and supportive medical expertise to substantiate the claims being made. We also hope to alter the institutional mindset that U.S. Intelligence can be trusted. History, repeatedly, has proven otherwise.
The Existing Directed-Energy Arsenal
Our first step was to determine what, if any technology exists which might be used for electronic harassment. The information was found in a "white paper" published in 1991 by the U.S. Global Strategy Council -- a Washington-based organization, under the chairmanship of Ray Cline, former Deputy Director of the CIA, who maintains very close ties with the U.S. Intelligence community. The "white paper" describes the foreign and domestic uses foreseen for laser weapons, isotropic radiators, infrasound, non-nuclear electromagnetic pulse generators, and high-powered microwave emitters.
The term, "non-lethal," used to describe this technology is misleading. the energy emitted from all of these weapons can kill people when appropriately amplified. At lower levels of amplified, they can cause extreme forms of physical discomfort and debilitation.
The Department of the Army (DA) identifies these same weapons as "non-conventional." They were so identified in an exhibit at a DA-sponsored symposium on "The Soldier As A System," in Crystal City, VA, on June 30, 1992. Beta wave incapacitators were separately mentioned during the symposium as being particular interested to the U.S. Marine Corps.
We discussed these "non-conventional" directed-energy weapons with Mr. Vernon Shisler, manager of the exhibit and the Army's delegate to NATO in matters pertaining to "The Soldier As A System." Mr. Shisler acknowledged not only that directed-energy weapons are in the DoD's arsenal, but also that the American soldier will remain vulnerable to their effects, should they be employed in the battlefield.
The U.S. Global Strategy Council recognizes the issue of vulnerability, as well, and urges ongoing research into effective countermeasures.
Interested readers may want to send for the U.S. Global Strategy Council's complete project proposal on this subject: (Title: Nonlethality: Development of a National Policy and Employing Nonlethal Means in a New Strategic Era, prepared by Janet Morris). A number of references in this Proposal to unidentified, elusive "enemies" of the U.S. Government and the potential domestic applications of this "non-lethal" technology invite serious consideration by the public at large.
The Council's address is 1800 K Street, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20006, (202) 466-6029.
Primarily because of MKULTRA, MHCHAOS and COINTELPRO, Executive Orders and implementing regulations were published which prohibited military and CIA domestic covert intelligence operations. Experiments on involuntary human subjects, and the surveillance of/collection of personal information on U.S. citizens, except under strictly regulated conditions were also prohibited.
Congressional committees were created to oversee compliance with these (quasi-) legal prohibitions. We have evidence that this is not being done. Moreover, where there are laws and, in this case, no laws enacted, there are loopholes, as well as individual and institutions who deliberately capitalize upon the existence of loopholes. Iran-Contra is one of the more blatant recent examples. Loopholes are also found in government resort to "black" intelligence and weapons programs, in the use of contractors, and in the absence of clear definitions of such terms as "national security" and "national security risk."
Executive Orders and regulations which currently limit U.S. Intelligence activities do not extend to non-intelligence government agencies or to their contractors. If fact, Executive Order 12333 specifies that government contractors do not need to know that their services support U.S. Intelligence objectives.
In its report of July 8, 1992, the Senate Subcommittee on Oversight of Government Management addresses the problem of tracking funds granted to government-contracted research and development (R&D) centers. The report notes that the problem is compounded by DoD's penchant for creating hard-to-monitor "shell" contractors as disbursement centers for funding programs.
Neither shall contractors nor their subcontractors are directly accountable to Congress. Being beyond Congressional oversight, they have the license to operate as Government surrogates in intelligence operations about which, "officially" they know nothing.
In this context, a publication disseminated at DA's "The Soldier As A System" symposium noted that the Army's Research and Technology Program sponsors 42 laboratories and R&D centers, employing approximately 10,000 scientists and engineers. The annual budget of $1.3 billion is only a small part of overall DoD research spending.
Weapons research, which includes the development and testing of "non-lethal" weapons, is not governed by laws restricting the activities of U.S. Intelligence agencies, though it may be presumed that these agencies contribute to and benefit from such research.
