Southern Beale - 60 Minutes Shills for the Pentagon

"Watching 60 Minutes National Security Correspondent David Martin introduce the Pentagon’s “Active Denial System” as the best life-saving advancement since the invention of Kevlar was nothing short of surreal. I actually had to watch the segment twice because I couldn’t believe my eyes and ears the first time.

... David Martin and 60 Minutes Producer Mary Walsh must be either incredibly stupid or on the Pentagon’s payroll. “End The War” and “World Peace” placards are a scene from Iraq? Really? This looks less like a scene from Iraq than a scene from America.

This certainly tells us everything we need to know about who the Pentagon views as the enemy. And it speaks volumes about the incurious stenography offered by 60 Minutes reporter David Martin and producer Mary Walsh.

Martin and Walsh seem particularly clueless about any moral or ethical issues which a crowd control device of this type presents. They spin this story as a tale of government bureaucracy holding up a really wonderful life saving device. "

Run away the ray-gun is coming : We test US army's new secret weapon
[snip] … here's how it works in the field.

A square transmitter as big as a plasma TV screen is mounted on the back of a Jeep.

When turned on, it emits an invisible, focused beam of radiation - similar to the microwaves in a domestic cooker - that are tuned to a precise frequency to stimulate human nerve endings.

It can throw a wave of agony nearly half a mile.

Military Zips Lips on Pain Ray Accident

August 2005 --

Alternet – Rumsfeld’s Ray Gun [ADS – Active Denial System]

[snip] … Long Term Problems

Aside from thermal injuries like blindness or burns, could a protestor who got zapped by an overzealous ADS controller eventually wind up with disease such as cancer? Another way of stating it: Do millimeter waves at the frequency of 95 gigahertz cause long term biological changes unrelated to heat?

The military says no. Others aren't so sure. And these things are often hard, if not near impossible, to prove.

In 2004, a North Atlantic Treaty Organization report on non-lethal weapons raised warnings. "The long-term physiological effects of the microwaves received by an individual are still being studied (maximum acceptable dose, cumulative effect of successive exposures)," the report states. "The absence of definitive results is the main obstacle to the use of radio frequencies."

The report goes on to note that "excessive power levels can have serious consequences for human targets."


definitely: thanks, Kira

This is definitely a warning to dissidents and it's only one of many. A couple of years ago when I started learning about this new weapon I was urging my readers to get active right away before the system could be deployed. But I only had 3 or 4 readers at the time and they probably didn't do much. Now that I have 5 or 6 readers who knows?

please don't read my blog

Actually, what CAN we do?

It was in '05 I posted the links to several articles on the Ray Gun around the blogosphere. I was writing lots of letters to Congress & media. I wasn't alone.

We have been SHUT OUT of the LOOP. We have been effectively SILENCED.

Nothing will happen until the wealthy feel the pain and even then they will find a way to blame those of us who have tried to educate and motivate the zombies on Capitol Hill.

EDIT: I said "wealthy", but I should have said those who are comfortably numb.

[Hah! I finally figured out how to make words BOLD!!]

Truth is by nature self-evident. As soon as you remove the cobwebs of ignorance that surround it, it shines clear.

Protest in Washington DC to protest the endless "stop loss" action by the Pentagon to keep soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq - not allowing them to go home on leave.

At designated intersections traffic was brought to a halt. See the protest actions as recorded of video.

Block traffic intersections, freeze in crosswalks and sit down on the pavement.


Police arrive, issue warnings of arrest and take arrest actions,..
