False Memory Implantations
Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2012Verified PurchaseWhether it was the intention of Lawrence Wright or not, his account of the Ingram case is the record of a cover up meant to discredit the actual accounts of ritual abuse survivors. The Ingram case threatened to expose the very real underground criminal organization responsible for ritual abuse and linked to the C.I.A.’s MKULTRA project. The very first act of Dr. Richard Ofshe, who also worked doing experiments for the C.I.A.’s MKULTRA project, was to implant a false memory in Paul Ingram. (p.134) Then the studies of Elizabeth Loftus were used in court to claim all of Paul Ingram’s memories were false. It is no small consequence that Ofshe worked both for the C.I.A. doing experiments on mind-control and sat on the board of the False Memory Syndrome Foundation. Paul Ingram’s daughters accused him of sexual abuse. Paul Ingram, as per the account of Lawrence Wright, remembered the ritual aspects of abuse even before his daughters and though the police interrogations were interrogations, they certainly did not demand the sort of confessions Paul Ingram confessed to. The memories of the Ingram family were in fact very consistent both with other accounts of ritual abuse, as well as being corroborative with the accounts of one another. It was a great victory, in terms of validation, for ritual abuse survivors to have the public confession of a respected deputy sheriff with enough integrity and emotional stamina to confess to the experiences suffered by him and his family. This could not be allowed and so Ofshe was sent in to confound the case. The next step would be to found the False Memory Syndrome Foundation to make sure the public would be sufficiently inundated with trash propaganda in an effort to convince us that all accounts of ritual abuse are examples of “False Memory Syndrome”. The False Memory Syndrome Foundation was founded and staffed by pedophiles and doctors who worked on research for the C.I.A.’s MKULTRA project.(Noblitt & Perkin-Noblitt (Eds.) (2008), p.185, 221.) The stated purpose of one experiment under MKULTRA was to create false memories for the purpose of discrediting subjects.(Ross (2006), p.39.) The ability to implant false memories does not discredit the authentic memories of the Ingram family. False Memory Syndrome is not recognized by the American Psychological Association but the Dissociative Disorders are. Wright’s conclusion was way off, but his record of the Ingram case is extremely valuable as the record of a cover-up.

Comment: The Media isn’t silent about child sex trafficking because of the children – Its silent because the customers own the Media.
A new study suggests that it’s possible to replace anxiety-producing unpleasant memories with new ones implanted under hypnosis.
Comment: When child sex abusers are in top positions in gov’t, Media, Publishing, Entertainment, Music & Acting, CIA and likely FBI you have a Pedophile Paradise and that’s what the Western countries are. They make laws so they have ALL the rights. The children have none. Existing laws to protect children are mostly ignored.

from ArtificialTelepathy Website
A “profane” or materialistic view of telepathy became commonplace after World War II. Just as new mathematical models and theories of physics had been brought to bear on development of the atomic bomb, so too new tools were brought to bear on the human mind.
Just as Cold War scientists raced to design rocket engines and missile technologies that would give their country superiority on the nuclear battlefield, so too did scientists rush to develop ever more complex and thorough models of the human brain. They literally began to see the brain as a mental battlefield.
Implicit within this Cold War race to acquire brain “technology” was the crude assumption that the human mind could be mechanically “modeled” or understood as an artificial construct. The brain began to be viewed as a complex “thinking machine” or computer that could be analyzed, broken into component parts, and back-engineered.
Within this context, telepathy began to be seen as an exotic form of mental radio transmission, only one of many communication functions performed by the mental machine.
Communication per se was nothing new. But technicians became fascinated by the potential to communicate silently and covertly, at a distance. Likewise, telepathy seemed to offer a powerful means to distract and confuse the enemy, to program assassins, or to forcibly extract secret information from an enemy’s mind.
Put bluntly, the Pentagon began to see telepathy as a powerful multi-task weapon. The rush to develop “artificial telepathy” became a top-priority weapons program within the overall race for total mind control. Artificial telepathy cannot be fully understood outside this military context or the historical context of the Cold War. The research and development really did begin as a Cold War weapons program.
The paragraphs below give a brief summary of the history of mind control research during the past 50 years.
Some of the amazing technologies developed during this time may be found at ‘Synthetic Telepathy And The Early Mind Wars‘.
We will examine some of the specific telepathy programs, and the scientists behind them, in future posts.
The following article combines material from several sources, listed under Footnotes.
The majority of information appeared in David Guyatt‘s synopsis of the history and development of mind control weapons, first presented at an ICRC symposium on “The Medical Profession and the Effects of Weapons”
First Electromagnetic Beam Weapons
The background to the development of anti-personnel electromagnetic weapons can be traced to the early-middle 1940’s and possibly earlier.
Japanese “Death Ray”
The earliest extant reference, to my knowledge, was contained in the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (Pacific Survey, Military Analysis Division, Volume 63) which reviewed Japanese research and development efforts on a “Death Ray.” Whilst not reaching the stage of practical application, research was considered sufficiently promising to warrant the expenditure of Yen 2 million during the years 1940-1945.
Summarizing the Japanese efforts, allied scientists concluded that a ray apparatus might be developed that could kill unshielded human beings at a distance of 5 to 10 miles. Studies demonstrated that, for example, automobile engines could be stopped by tuned waves as early as 1943. (1)
It is therefore reasonable to suppose that this technique has been available for a great many years
Nazi Experiments in Mind Manipulation
[E]xperiments in behavior modification and mind manipulation have a much more grisly past. Nazi doctors at the Dachau concentration camp conducted involuntary experiments with hypnosis and narco-hypnosis, using the drug mescaline on inmates. Additional research was conducted at Auschwitz, using a range of chemicals including various barbiturates and morphine derivatives. Many of these experiments proved fatal.
Following the conclusion of the war, the U.S. Naval Technical Mission was tasked with obtaining pertinent industrial and scientific material that had been produced by the Third Reich and which may be of benefit to U.S. interests. Following a lengthy report, the Navy instigated Project CHATTER in 1947.
Many of the Nazi scientists and medical doctors who conducted hideous experiments were later recruited by the U.S. Army and worked out of Heidelberg prior to being secretly relocated to the United States under the Project PAPERCLIP program.
Under the leadership of Dr. Hubertus Strughold, 34 ex-Nazi scientists accepted “Paperclip” contracts, authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and were put to work at Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas.

[For a fuller account of the Nazi experiments refer to Resonance No 29 November 1995, published by the Bioelectromagnetic Special Interest Group of American Mensa Ltd., and drawn from a series of articles published by the Napa Sentinel, 1991 by Harry Martin and David Caul.]

It was not until the middle or late 1970’s that the American public became aware of a series of hitherto secret programs that had been conducted over the preceding two decades by the military and intelligence community. (3)
Primarily focusing on narco-hypnosis, these extensive covert programs bore the project titles MKULTRA, MKDELTA, MKNAOMI, MKSEARCH (MK being understood to stand for Mind Kontrol), BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE and CHATTER.
The principal aim of these and associated programs was the development of a reliable “programmable” assassin. Secondary aims were the development of a method of citizen control. (4)
Dr. Jose Delgado
Particularly relevant was Dr. Jose Delgado’s secret work directed towards the creation of a “psycho-civilized” society by use of a “stimoceiver.” (5)
Delgado’s work was seminal, and his experiments on humans and animals demonstrated that electronic stimulation can excite extreme emotions including rage, lust and fatigue.
In his paper “Intracerebral Radio Stimulation and recording in Completely Free Patients,” Delgado observed that:
“Radio Stimulation on different points in the amygdala and hippocampus in the four patients produced a variety of effects, including pleasant sensations, elation, deep thoughtful concentration, odd feelings, super relaxation (an essential precursor for deep hypnosis), colored visions, and other responses.”
With regard to the “colored visions” citation, it is reasonable to conclude he was referring to hallucinations — an effect that a number of so-called “victims” allude to. (7)
Dr. John C. Lilly
Also of interest is Dr. John C. Lilly (10), who was asked by the Director of the National Institute of Mental Health to brief the CIA, FBI, NSA and military intelligence services on his work using electrodes to stimulate, directly, the pleasure and pain centers of the brain.
Lilly said that he refused the request. However, as stated in his book, he continued to do “useful” work for the national security apparatus.
In terms of timing this is interesting, for these events took place in 1953.
First use of computers to communicate with the brain
As far back as 1969, Delgado predicted the day would soon arrive when a computer would be able to establish two-way radio communication with the brain – an event that first occurred in 1974.
Lawrence Pinneo, a neurophysiologist and electronic engineer working for Stanford Research Institute (a leading military contractor),
“developed a computer system capable of reading a person’s mind. It correlated brain waves on an electroencephalograph with specific commands. Twenty years ago the computer responded with a dot on a TV screen. Nowadays it could be the input to a stimulator (ESB) in advanced stages using radio frequencies.” (8)
Drs. Sharp and Frey develop “Microwave Hearing”
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)
[Footnote 20 – Refer to Dr. Robert Becker who has stated “Such a device has obvious applications in covert operations designed to drive a target crazy with “voices” or deliver undetected instructions to a programmed assassin.”
Dr. Ross Adey experiments with EM control of emotional states
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.
Adey and others have compiled an entire library of frequencies and pulsation rates which can affect the mind and nervous system. (21)
Adey induces calcium efflux in brain tissue with low power level fields (a basis for the CIA and military’s “confusion weaponry”) and has done behavioral experiments with radar modulated at electroencephalogram (EEG) rhythms.
He is understandably concerned about environmental exposures within 1 to 30 Hz (cycles per second), either as a low frequency or an amplitude modulation on a microwave or radio frequency, as these can physiologically interact with the brain even at very low power densities.
Dr. Ewen Cameron’s experiments in mental programming
Additional studies, conducted by Dr. Ewen Cameron and funded by the CIA, were directed towards erasing memory and imposing new personalities on unwilling patients.
Cameron discovered that electroshock treatment caused amnesia. He set about a program that he called “de-patterning” which had the effect of erasing the memory of selected patients. Further work revealed that subjects could be transformed into a virtual blank machine (Tabula Rasa) and then be re-programmed with a technique which he termed “psychic driving.”
Such was the bitter public outrage, once his work was revealed (as a result of FOIA searches), that Cameron was forced to retire in disgrace.
From 1965 through to 1970, Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency (DARPA), with up to 70-80% funding provided by the military, set in motion operation PANDORA to study the health and psychological effects of low intensity microwaves with regard to the so-called “Moscow signal” registered at the American Embassy in Moscow.
Initially, there was confusion over whether the signal was an attempt to activate bugging devices or for some other purpose. There was suspicion that the microwave irradiation was being used as a mind control system.
CIA agents asked scientists involved in microwave research whether microwaves beamed at humans from a distance could affect the brain and alter behavior.
Dr. Milton Zarat who undertook to analyze Soviet literature on microwaves for the CIA, wrote:
“For non-thermal irradiations, they believe that the electromagnetic field induced by the microwave environment affects the cell membrane, and this results in an increase of excitability or an increase in the level of excitation of nerve cells.
With repeated or continued exposure, the increased excitability leads to a state of exhaustion of the cells of the cerebral cortex.”
This project appears to have been quite extensive and included (under U.S. Navy funding) studies demonstrating how to induce heart seizures, create leaks in the blood/brain barrier and production of auditory hallucinations.
Despite attempts to render the Pandora program invisible to scrutiny, FOIA filings revealed memoranda of Richard Cesaro, Director of DARPA, which confirmed that the program’s initial goal was to “discover whether a carefully controlled microwave signal could control the mind.”
Cesaro urged that these studies be made “for potential weapons applications.” (12)
EM Mind Control Research Goes Black
Following immense public outcry, Congress forbade further research and demanded that these projects be terminated across the board.
But as former CIA agent Victor Marchetti later revealed, the programs merely became more covert with a high element of “deniability” built in to them, and that CIA claims to the contrary are a cover story. (13)
Despite the fact that many of the aforementioned projects revolved around the use of narcotics and hallucinogens, projects ARTICHOKE, PANDORA and CHATTER clearly demonstrate that “psychoelectronics” were a high priority.
Indeed, author John Marks’ anonymous informant (known humorously as “Deep Trance”) stated that beginning in 1963 mind control research strongly emphasized electronics.
1974: Dr. J.F. Scapitz experiments with remote hypnosis
In 1974, Dr. J. F. Scapitz filed a plan to explore the interaction of radio signals and hypnosis.
He stated that,
“In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of the hypnotists may be conveyed by modulate electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain — i.e. without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously.”
Schapitz’ work was funded by the DoD. Despite FOIA filings, his work has never been made available. Also it is interesting to note the date of 1974, which almost exactly mirror’s the period when the USSR commenced its own program that resulted in “Acoustic Psycho-correction technology.”]
1976: Soviets use ELF transmissions as mind-control weapon
On July 4, 1976 seven giant transmitters in the Ukraine, powered by the Chernobyl nuclear facility, pumped a 100 megawatt radio frequency at the West, which contained a 10 Hz ELF mind control frequency.
According to a US scientist, Dr Andrija Puharich, MD, the soviet pulses covered the human brain frequencies.
With a Dr Bob Beck, he proved that the Soviet transmissions were a weapon. He found that a 6.65 Hz frequency would cause depression and an 11Hz frequency would cause manic and riotous behavior. Transmissions could indeed entrain the human brain, and thereby induce behavioral modification such that populations can be mind controlled en masse by ELF transmissions.
More importantly, he found that an ELF signal could cause cancer at the flick of a switch. It did this by modifying the function of RNA transference’s so that amino acid sequences are scrambled and produce unnatural proteins.

1981: Eldon Byrd develops EM devices for riot control
Scientist Eldon Byrd, who worked for the Naval Surface Weapons Office, was commissioned in 1981 to develop electromagnetic devices for purposes including riot control, clandestine operations and hostage removal. (11)
In the context of a controversy over reproductive hazards to Video Display Terminal (VDT) operators, he wrote of alterations in brain function of animals exposed to low intensity fields.
Offspring of exposed animals,
“exhibited a drastic degradation of intelligence later in life… couldn’t learn easy tasks… indicating a very definite and irreversible damage to the central nervous system of the fetus.”
With VDT operators exposed to weak fields, there have been clusters of miscarriages and birth defects (with evidence of central nervous system damage to the fetus). Byrd also wrote of experiments where behavior of animals was controlled by exposure to weak electromagnetic fields.
“At a certain frequency and power intensity, they could make the animal purr, lay down and roll over.”
Low-frequency sleep induction
From 1980 to 1983 […] Eldon Byrd ran the Marine Corps Nonlethal Electromagnetic Weapons project. He conducted most of his research at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute in Bethesda, Md.
“We were looking at electrical activity in the brain and how to influence it,” he says.
Byrd, a specialist in medical engineering and bioeffects, funded small research projects, including a paper on vortex weapons by Obolensky.
He conducted experiments on animals – and even on himself – to see if brain waves would move into sync with waves impinging on them from the outside. (He found that they would, but the effect was short lived.)
By using very low frequency electromagnetic radiation–the waves way below radio frequencies on the electromagnetic spectrum–he found he could induce the brain to release behavior-regulating chemicals.
“We could put animals into a stupor,” he says, by hitting them with these frequencies. “We got chick brains – in vitro – to dump 80 percent of the natural opioids in their brains,” Byrd says.
He even ran a small project that used magnetic fields to cause certain brain cells in rats to release histamine.
In humans, this would cause instant flulike symptoms and produce nausea. “These fields were extremely weak. They were undetectable,” says Byrd.
“The effects were nonlethal and reversible. You could disable a person temporarily,” Byrd hypothesizes. “It [would have been] like a stun gun.”
Byrd never tested any of his hardware in the field, and his program, scheduled for four years, apparently was closed down after two, he says.
“The work was really outstanding,” he grumbles. “We would have had a weapon in one year.”
Byrd says he was told his work would be unclassified, “unless it works.” Because it worked, he suspects that the program “went black.”
Other scientists tell similar tales of research on electromagnetic radiation turning top secret once successful results were achieved. There are clues that such work is continuing.
In 1995, the annual meeting of four-star U.S. Air Force generals–called CORONA–reviewed more than 1,000 potential projects. One was called “Put the Enemy to Sleep/Keep the Enemy From Sleeping.” It called for exploring “acoustics,” “microwaves,” and “brain-wave manipulation” to alter sleep patterns.
It was one of only three projects approved for initial investigation.

Mankind Research Unlimited
An obscure District of Columbia corporation called Mankind Research Unlimited (MRU) and its wholly owned subsidiary, Systems Consultants Inc. (SCI), operated a number of classified intelligence, government and Pentagon contracts, specializing in, amongst other things:
“problem solving in the areas of intelligence electronic warfare, sensor technology and applications.” (14)
MRU’s “capability and experience” is divided into four fields. These include “biophysics — Biological Effects of Magnetic Fields,” “Research in Magneto-fluid Dynamics,” “Planetary Electro-Hydro-Dynamics” and “Geo-pathic Efforts on Living Organisms.” The latter focuses on the induction of illness by altering the magnetic nature of the geography.
Also under research were “Biocybernetics, Psychodynamic Experiments in Telepathy,” “Errors in Human Perception,” “Biologically Generated Fields,” “Metapsychiatry and the Ultraconscious Mind” (believed to refer to experiments in telepathic mind control), “Behavioral Neuropsychiatry,” “Analysis and Measurement of Human Subjective States” and “Human Unconscious Behavioral Patterns.”
Employing some old OSS, CIA and military intelligence officers, the company also engages the services of prominent physicians and psychologists including E. Stanton Maxey, Stanley R. Dean Berthold, Eric Schwarz plus many more.
MRU lists in its Company Capabilities “brain and mind control.” (15)
1989 CNN Program on EM Weapons
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.

1992: Maj. Edward Dames and Project GRILL-FLAME
Major Edward Dames, formerly with the Pentagon’s Defense Intelligence Agency until 1992, was a long-serving member of the highly classified operation GRILL-FLAME, a program that focused on some of the more bizarre possibilities of intelligence gathering and remote interrogation.
Known as “remote viewers,” GRILL-FLAME personnel possessed a marked psychic ability that was put to use “penetrating” designated targets and gathering important intelligence on significant figures.
The program operated with two teams: one working out of the top secret NSA facility at Fort George Meade in Maryland, and the other at SRI. Results are said to have been exemplary.
Following the Oliver North debacle, the Secretary of Defense officially terminated GRILL-FLAME, fearing bad publicity if the program were to become known to the public.
The leading members of the project — including Dames — immediately relocated to the privately owned and newly formed Psi-Tech, and continue their work to this day, operating under government contract.
In the course of his work, Dames was (and remains) close to many the leading figures and proponents anti-personnel electromagnetic weapons, especially those that operate in the neurological field.
During NBC’s “The Other Side” program, Dames stated that “The U.S. Government has an electronic device which could implant thoughts in people.” He refused to comment further.
The program was broadcast during April 1995.
1993 Report of “Acoustic Psycho-correction”
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.
1994 Report on “Less Than Lethal” Weapons
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)
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. (27)
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.

Jack Verona and Project SLEEPING BEAUTY
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)
