There followed an extensive hiatus
in available information through the 1980's up to the present day. This
initially appears to have closely paralleled Ronald Reagan's presidency
and not surprisingly flowed onwards during President Bush's term of
office. (17) As a result, the once user-friendly Freedom of Information
Act became less accessible and more bureaucratic. Search costs soared
and material that had been (or scheduled to be) de-classified was
reviewed and re-classified. This phenomenon is not an unusual
occurrence in the United States, and tends to shadow the outward face
of Congress. Public outrage leads to a temporary liberalization, but as
public memory recedes (all too quickly) the old institutionalized
covert ways quickly re-engage. We thus move to more recent times.

During 1989 CNN aired a program on electromagnetic weapons and showed a
U.S. government document that outlined a contingency plan to use EM
weapons against "terrorists." Prior to the show a DoD medical engineer
sourced a story claiming that in the context of conditioning,
microwaves and other modalities had regularly been used against
Palestinians.

In 1993, Defense News announced that the Russian government was
discussing with American counterparts the transfer of technical
information and equipment known as "Acoustic Psycho-correction." The
Russians claimed that this device involves "the transmission of
specific commands via static or white noise bands into the human
subconscious without upsetting other intellectual functions." Experts
said that demonstrations of this equipment have shown "encouraging"
results "after exposure of less than one minute," and has produced "the
ability to alter behavior on willing and unwilling subjects." The
article goes on to explain that combined "software and hardware
associated with the (sic) psycho-correction program could be procured
for as little as U.S. $80,000." The Russians went on to observe that
"World opinion is not ready for dealing appropriately with the problems
coming from the possibility of direct access to the human mind."

Acoustic psycho-correction dates back to the mid 1970's and can be used
to "suppress riots, control dissidents, demoralize or disable opposing
forces and enhance the performance of friendly special operations
teams." (18) One U.S. concern in relation to this device was aired by
Janet Morris of the Global Strategy Council, a Washington-based think
tank established by former CIA deputy director Ray Cline. Morris noted
that "Ground troops risk exposure to bone-conducting sound that cannot
be offset by earplugs or other protective gear." In recent months I met
with and discussed Russian research efforts, with a contact who had
visited Russia earlier this year. He, in turn, met with a number of
Russian scientists who are knowledgeable in this field. I have few
doubts that the Defense News article cited earlier is fundamentally
accurate.



In his pioneering work, Dr. Ross Adey determined that emotional states
and behavior can be remotely influenced merely by placing a subject in
an electromagnetic field. By directing a carrier frequency to stimulate
the brain and using amplitude modulation to shape the wave to mimic a
desired EEG frequency, he was able to impose a 4.5 CPS theta rhythm on
his subjects. Drs. Joseph Sharp and Allen Frey experimented with
microwaves seeking to transmit spoken words directly into the audio
cortex via a pulsed-microwave analog of the speaker's sound vibration.
Indeed, Frey's work in this field, dating back to 1960, gave rise to
the so called "Frey effect" which is now more commonly referred to as
"microwave hearing." (19) Within the Pentagon this ability is now known
as "Artificial Telepathy." (20) Adey and others have compiled an entire
library of frequencies and pulsation rates which can effect the mind
and nervous system. (21)

During the siege at the Mt. Carmel church near Waco, Texas, FBI agents
discussed with Russian counterparts the use of acoustic psycho-
correction on David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. It is understood
that this contingency did not proceed. However, some unusual EM weapons
were deployed at Waco. BBC World News and FBI film-footage in the
possession of this writer show both the Russian equipment being
demonstrated, as well as previously unseen noise generator and an
unusual low frequency strobe array in use at Waco.


Have weapons of this nature been developed and field tested?
Judging from the number of individuals and groups coming forward with
complaints of harassment, the answer appears to be "yes." Kim Besley,
of the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp, has compiled a fairly
extensive catalogue of effects that have resulted from low frequency
signals emanating from the U.S. Greenham Common base, apparently
targeted at the women protesters. These include: vertigo, retinal
bleeding, burnt face (even at night), nausea, sleep disturbances,
palpitations, loss of concentration, loss of memory, disorientation,
severe headaches, temporary paralysis, faulty speech co-ordination,
irritability and a sense of panic in non-panic situations. Identical
and similar effects have been reported elsewhere and appear to be
fairly common-place amongst so-called "victims." Many of these symptoms
have been associated in medical literature with exposure to microwaves
and especially through low intensity or non-thermal exposures. (22)
These have been reviewed by Dr. Robert Becker, twice nominated for the
Nobel Prize, and a specialist in EM effects. His report confirms that
the symptoms mirror those he would expect to see had Microwave weapons
been deployed.

The April 1994 issue of Scientific American carried an article entitled
"Bang! You're Alive" which briefly described some of the known arsenal
of "Less Than Lethal" weapons presently available. These include laser
rifles and low-frequency infrasound generators powerful enough to
trigger nausea or diarrhea. Steve Aftergood of the Federation of
American Scientists (FAS) noted that non-lethal weapons have been
linked to "mind control" devices and that three of the most prominent
advocates of non-lethality share an interest in psychic phenomena. (23)

Current Projects include SLEEPING BEAUTY, directed towards the
battlefield use of mind-altering electromagnetic weapons. This project
is headed by Jack Verona, a highly placed Defense Intelligence Agency
(DIA) officer. Dr. Michael Persinger of Laurentian University is also
employed on the project. Other sources have revealed a project entitled
MONARCH which, supposedly, is directed towards the deliberate creation
of severe multiple personality disorder. (24)

It is now the opinion of many that these and related programs have been
brought under the banner of non-lethal weapons, otherwise known as
"less than lethal," which are now promulgated in connection with the
doctrine of low intensity conflict, a concept for warfare in the 21st
century. It is clear that many of these Pentagon and related LTL
programs operate under high classification. Others consider many
similar or related "black" programs are funded from the vast resources
presently available under the U.S. counter-drug law enforcement policy
which has a FY 1995 budget of $13.2 billion. (25)

On 21 July 1994, Defense Secretary William J. Perry issued a memorandum
on non-lethal weapons which outlined a tasking priority list for use of
these technologies. Second on the list was "crowd control". Coming in
at a poor fifth was "Disable or destroy weapons or weapon
development/production processes, including suspected weapons of mass
destruction." It is therefore clear that non-lethality is fundamentally
seen as anti-personnel rather than anti-material.

In July 1996, the Spotlight, a widely circulated right-wing U.S.
newspaper, reported that well-placed DoD sources have confirmed a
classified Pentagon contract for the development of "high-power
electromagnetic generators that interfere with human brain waves." The
article cited the memorandum of understanding dated 1994 between
Attorney General Janet Reno, and Defense Secretary William Perry for
transfer of LTL weapons to the law enforcement sector. A budget of
under $50 million has been made available for funding associated
"black" programs. Dr. Emery Horvath, a professor of physics at Harvard
University, has stated in connection to the generator that interferes
with human brain waves that "These electronic 'skull-zappers' are
designed to invade the mind and short circuit its synapses... in the
hands of government technicians, it may be used to disorient entire
crowds, or to manipulate individuals into self destructive acts. It's a
terrifying weapon." (26)

In a 1993 U.S. Air Command and Staff College paper entitled Non Lethal
Technology and Air Power, authors Maj. Jonathan W. Klaaren (USAF) and
Maj. Ronald S. Mitchell (USAF) outlined selected NLT weapons. These
included "Acoustic" (pulsed/attenuated high-intensity sound, infrasound
(very low frequency) and Polysound (high volume, distracting) as well
as high-power microwaves (HPM) that possessed the ability to deter or
incapacitate human beings.

These and other classified weapons are being passed to domestic law
enforcement agencies, as shown by the 1995 ONDCP (Office of National
Drug Control Policy) International Technology Symposium, "Counter-Drug
Law Enforcement: Applied Technology for Improved Operational
Effectiveness," which outlined the "Transition of advanced military
technologies to the civil law enforcement environment." There are some
observers who fear that the burgeoning narcotics industry is an ideal
"cover" in which to "transit" Non Lethal Technologies to domestic
political tasks. Whether this is merely a misplaced "Orwellian" fear
remains to be seen. However, organized crime is so globally "organized"
that experts now believe it is impossible to eradicate or even
effectively combat
