Active Denial System tip of Death Ray Weapons iceburg FW: Most Shocking Thing I Have Ever Seen
- Active Denial System is only the tip of the Advanced E/M Weapons iceberg
The ADS "pain ray" was pioneered by Ira Einhorn and Andrija Puharich
according to Ira's testimony per a home-made black box in 1970's,
another reason Ira is in jail?
Here is the movie for physicists to see the fruits of their theories:
Death Ray Weapons "plausible deniability" is now gone.
This is the kind of stuff they want to put into Star Wars orbit.
Below this more positive outlook is the analysis of this film
and its narration transcription.
A University of California at Santa Barbara 1983
interview by Daily Nexus Staff Writer Evette Justus
quoting Bruce DePalma, local physicist and scientist:
"All the bombs, all the missiles, and all the guns
came out of the minds of physicists."
"A peaceful revolution can occur providing we can
free ourselves from the oppression which is dominating
us and controlling our day to day existence. This oppression
is the necessity to make payments to a system which gives
us the energy to heat our homes, transport ourselves,
brings our food and fertilizer to grow our food, and makes
the plastic that goes into our clothes. When we can be
released from that we well have a choice. And this can
be the only revolution - a peaceful revolution and free
energy technology makes this peaceful revolution possible."

Subject: Most Shocking Thing I Have Ever Seen
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is my very unfortunate responsibility to give you a
very, very disturbing update on our research here at the
California Center for Strategic Studies. This is not for
the faint of heart.
Many will remember that earlier this year our background
research for our "Swords Into Plowshares Project"
unexpectedly uncovered an obscure new military device
developed by the U.S. military and military contractors
called "active denial system" (ADS) - nicknamed the "pain
I wrote an op-ed for the San Francisco Chronicle, which
was syndicated across the country, and a couple of days
later I was interviewed by a reporter from Scripps-Howard
for a news article which became that news service's #1
news story for the next couple of days.
We were led to believe that the deployment of the "pain
ray" by U.S. forces in Iraq was "indefinitely delayed" and
that a moratorium was put in place. We have no reason -
not yet anyway - to doubt that.
But one of our CCSS analysts working on our project
researching this new generation of "direct energy
weaponry" - weaponry based on lasers, microwaves, and in
the case of ADS: millimeter waves - has discovered an
Italian documentary film from last month (16 May 2006)
that is more shocking than probably anything I have ever
(Viewed discretion advised - graphic footage, graphic
content, extremely frightening implications - even as a
national security expert and former professor for the U.S.
Naval War College, this is way beyond my comfort zone.)
This film can be viewed in English, Italian or Arabic by
and locating the appropriate icon on the right side of
your screen. It takes a few minutes to download.
The written text of the documentary appears at the bottom
of this message below the asterisks.
There is considerable evidence contained in this
documentary to indicate that the U.S. military has
deployed a new generation of weaponry in Iraq for which
adjectives such as "nightmarish" and "horrific" fall far
short. The comments by Secretary of Defense Donald
Rumsfeld and General Myers are especially revealing.
I suggest more than one viewing (approx. 24 minutes in
length); it took four or five viewings for me before I
began to realize everything I was seeing and hearing. For
example, there appear to be definite war crimes committed
by U.S. forces, civilians and children among the
casualties. Judging from the effects of the weaponry in
question, it must include "speed of light" weaponry that
defies the generic term "laser" and it is my professional
opinion that it also likely includes micro-wave weaponry,
judging from the descriptions of bodies that seem to have
inexplicably exploded. And I cannot imagine what made the
bodies that were struck by bullets after being exposed to
some sort of ray SHRINK TO THE SIZE OF APPROXIMATELY ONE
METER IN LENGTH: beyond my "security clearance" I suppose.
Also surprising was the inclusion of footage, albeit very
brief, near the end of the documentary of the "pain ray"
being tested on a person described as an American soldier.
The person obviously experienced excruciating pain.
Friends and colleagues:
Our strategic-level think tank would like to "hit the
ground running" on this, but we simply do not have the
financial resources necessary to address this - shall we

from continuing to develop and manufacture these sorts of
new weapons, and to withdraw any weapons which may already

that's OK: we are, after all, a think tank.
Where do we start?
A "project report" - always a good starting point.
A conference or symposium - perhaps;
Congressional legislation banning deployment - probably;
Massive publicity - one would think.

P.S. Last but not least: As you begin preparing over the
next few days to celebrate America's Independence Day,
please consider very seriously the closing remarks in the
documentary by highly-respected military analyst William
Arkin echoing my previous concerns regarding the
implications of the pain ray for use in crowd control in
the U.S. - and the potential threat to our basic civil
liberties, such as our First Amendment "right of the
people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the
government for a redress of grievances." It's not only
our nation's adversaries abroad who should fear this
weapon: Every American should be concerned.
MAJID AL GHEZALI: They used incredible weapons
PATRICK DILLON: Experimental weapons?
MAJID AL GHEZALI: Yes... Yes, I think. They shoot the bus.
We saw the bus like a cloth, like a wet cloth. It seemed
like a Volkswagen, a big bus like a Volkswagen.
NARRATOR: This testimony was reported to American
filmmaker Patrick Dillon a few weeks after the battle for
the airport. The person interviewed, Majid al Ghezali, is
a well-known and respected man in Baghdad, who is the
first violinist in the city orchestra.
In addition to describing the battle, Majid al Ghezali
wanted to show Patrick Dillon the site near the airport
where this mysterious weapon was used, along with the
traces of fused metal still visible, and the irregularly
sized ditches where the cadavers were buried before they
We sought out Majid al Ghezali to hear more details of his
story. We met up with him in Amman and he pointed out some
inexplicable peculiarities on the bodies of the victims of
the battle for the airport.
MAJID AL GHEZALI: Just the head was burnt. In the other
parts of the body there wasn't anything.
NARRATOR: Al Ghezali reported that he had seen three
passengers in a car, all dead, with their faces and teeth
burnt, their clothes intact, and no sign of projectiles.
MAJID AL GHEZALI: There wasn't any bullet. I saw their
teeth, just the teeth, and they had no eyes, all of them,
there was nothing on their bodies.
NARRATOR: There were other inexplicable aspects: the
terrain where the battle took place was dug up by the
American military and replaced with other fresh earth; the
bodies that were not hit by projectiles had shrunk to just
slightly more than one meter in height.
MAJID AL GHEZALI: Except the ones killed by the bullets,
most of them became very small. I mean... like that...
Something like that. [INTERVIEWEE HOLDS HANDS APPROX. ONE
NARRATOR: When we asked Majid what weapon he imagined had
been used, he said that he had reached the conclusion that
it must have been a laser weapon.
MAJID AL GHEZALI: One year later we heard that they used
an update technology, a unique one, like lasers.
NARRATOR: We found another disturbing document on the use
of mysterious weapons in Iraq, which referred to episodes
that took place almost at the same time as those described
by Majid al Ghezali.
SAAD AL FALLUJI: They were 26 in the bus. About 20 of them
had no head, the head had been cut, some of them had no
arms or no legs. The only unwounded was the driver and
really I don't know how he reach our hospital, because one
arm was on his side, one head just beside him. It was a
very strange and horrible situation. In the roof of the
car there were parts of the body: intestines, brains, all
parts of the body. It was a very very very miserable
FILMAKER GEERT VAN MOORTER: (medical doctor working in
Iraq during and after the war, as a volunteer for the
Belgian NGO Medical Aid for the Third World) Do you have
idea with what kind of weapon the attacked the bus?
SAAD AL FALLUJI: We don't know with what kind of weapon
they hit this bus.
DOCTOR #2: It seems to be a new weapon
SAAD AL FALLUJI: Yes, a new weapon
DOCTOR #2: They are trying to do experiments on our
civilians. Nobody could identify the type of this weapon.
NARRATOR: We went to Belgium to find the filmmaker of
this sequence, Geert Van Moorter, a doctor working as a
volunteer in Iraq.
FILMAKER GEERT VAN MOORTER: This footage is taken at the
General Teaching Hospital in Hilla, which is about 100 Km
from Baghdad, and close to the historical site of Babylon.
There I talked with the colleague doctor Saad al Falluji,
which is the chief surgeon in that hospital.
Doctor al Falluji said me that the survivors that he
operated said him that they did not hear any noise, so
there was no explosion to hear, no metal fragments or
shrapnels or bullets in their bodies, so they themselves
were thinking of some strange kind of weapon which they
did not know.
NARRATOR: Let's hear Dr. Saad el Falluji's story about
this in more detail.
SAAD AL FALLUJI: This bus was very crowded, they were
going from Hilla to Kifil, to find their families, but
before they had arrived at the American checkpoint the
villagers said to them "return back, return back". When
the bus tried to return back it was shot by the
FILMAKER GEERT VAN MOORTER: No gunshot wounds?
SAAD AL FALLUJI: No, no, I don't know what it was. We are
here 10 surgeons and we couldn't decide which was the
weapon that hit this car.
FILMAKER GEERT VAN MOORTER: But inside the bodies you did
not discover ordinary bullets?
SAAD AL FALLUJI: We didn't find bullets, but most of the
passengers were dead, so they took them immediately to the
refrigerator and we couldn't dissect and see, but in those
who were alive we didn't find any kind of bullet. We
didn't find bullets in their bodyes.
DOCTOR #2: Something cutting organs, cutting limbs,
attacking the abdomen, attacking the neck and goes out.
NARRATOR: Dr. Falluji also ended up speaking about a
SAAD AL FALLUJI: I don't think that the bombing, or the
cluster bombs, or the laser weapons can bring democracy to
NARRATOR: As in any war, the war in Iraq, left us a
dreadful gallery of horror - images of mutilations that
not even doctors can explain. The witnesses referred to
laser weapons, arms with mysterious effects. We do not
know what kind of weapons could produce such terrible
effects. We tried to learn more about it, by asking for
interviews to members of companies manufacturing laser and
microwave weapons. Yet, the US Defence Department
prevented any information from being released to us. They
also did not answer - up to the time the film was edited -
the questions we had sent them in order to know weather or
not experimental weapons had been tested in Iraq and
We then reviewed the Pentagon's media conferences released
before the II Gulf War. Willingness to test new weapons
emerged form the words of both the Defence Secretary and
General Meyers. The questions from the media on direct
energy and microwave weapons produced a certain amount of
AMERICAN JOURNALIST: Mr. Secretary, can I ask you a
question about some of the technology that you're
developing to fight the war on terrorists, specifically
directed energy and high-powered microwave technology? Do
you -- when do you envision that you can weaponize that
type of technology?
DONALD RUMSFELD: Goodness, it is in -- for the most part,
the kinds of things you're talking about are in varying
early stages. (To the general.) Do you want to -- do you
have anything you would add?
GENERAL MYERS: I don't think I would add much. It's -- I
think they are in early stages and probably not ready for
employment at this point.
DONALD RUMSFELD: In the normal order of things, when you
invest in research and development and begin a
developmental project, you don't have any intention or
expectations that one would use it. On the other hand, the
real world intervenes from time to time, and you reach in
there and take something out that is still in a
developmental stage, and you might use it. So the -- your
question's not answerable. It is -- depends on what
happens in the future and how well things move along the
track and whether or not someone feels it's appropriate to
reach into a development stage and see if something might
be useful, as was the case with the unmanned aerial
AMERICAN JOURNALIST: But you sound like you're willing to
experiment with it.
GENERAL MYERS: Yeah, I think that's the point. And I think
-- and it's -- and we have, I think, from the beginning of
this conflict -- I think General Franks has been very open
to looking at new things, if there are new things
available, and has been willing to put them into the
fight, even before they've been fully wrung out. And I
think that's -- not referring to these particular cases of
directed energy or high-powered microwaves, but sure. And
we will continue to do that.
NARRATOR: But what is meant by directed-energy and
microwave weapons? We went to ask retired colonel John
Alexander, former program director in one of the most
important military research laboratories in the United
States, Los Alamos National Laboratory.
RETIRED COLONEL JOHN B. ALEXANDER: The research and the
concepts for directed energy weapons go back many decades.
What is happening is that the technology has now advanced
sufficiently that now we are starting to see these weapons
There are several types of directed energy weapons and
basically what they do is they're known as "speed of
light" because they shoot electrons very fast over very
long distances. Lasers of course are in the light range,
then there are microwave weapons that are operating at
other frequencies, but basically they're beam weapons,
which is nothing physical that goes out, because they move
electrons, while the kinetic weapons shoot big bullets to
go out and physically hit and destroy something. These
work because the energy is deposed on the target and
causes some effect.
NARRATOR: These images document one of the THEL tests.
THEL stands for Tactical High Energy Laser. In the
sequence, you can see the laser beam hit and destroy
missiles and mortar rounds as they are about to hit the
In this other test we see the laser beam identify and
destroy two missiles at the same time.
It doesn't make any noise and it's invisible?
AMERICAN JOURNALIST: Some are visible, some are just
outside... You have, you know, in the infrared range...
What's emerging now are laser weapons where the effect is
that that of the laser. They can be all burners, in what
we call High Energy Lasers, because with the concentrated
energy you can literally drill holes, you know, in the
NARRATOR: Former Pentagon analyst William Arkin, who
presently works as a journalist for the Washington Post,
also confirms this revolutionary change from kinetic
weapons to energy weapons.
WILLIAM ARKIN: For thousands of years, the way in which
you have killed someone is you have hit them with a sword,
a sphere, an arrow, a bullet, a bomb. It's kinetic, you're
killing them by hitting them. And now, all of the sudden,
out of nowhere, you have a completely new physical
principle being applied in killing people, in which they
don't know that they're being killed because their skin
and body is being heated by high power microwaves or they
are being hit by a laser that would have an instantaneous
NARRATOR: There are other types of weapons made with
lasers, such as the device we can see in this sequence.
The target is not hit by a projectile, but rather by an
impulse of energy that manages to bore through the armor
of an armored car.
Excluding acoustic weapons, for the moment, the only sign
of the use of energy weapons in a war scenario is a laser
device known as Zeus. According to official Pentagon
sources, military vehicles equipped with this laser device
have been used in Afghanistan to explode mines. According
to two reliable military information sites - Defense Tech
and Defence Industry Daily - at least three such vehicles
are being used in Iraq as well and some people report
having seen them.
FILMAKER GEERT VAN MOORTER: When you showed me the picture
of what you described that is a laser weapon, it reminded
me that I was talking with some American soldiers, in
August 2003, and there was some kind of box on their tank
with a blue light like this. I recall it very well not
because they said me what it was used for, but because I
was teasing a translator, which was an Iraqi female, by
telling her "look, with this kind of thing they can look
through and see somebody without clothes". That's why I
remind it, but I have seen for sure this kind of thing on
NARRATOR: William Arkin is one of the American experts
who follows the Pentagon activity most closely. So what
does Arkin think about the possibility of the use of
directed energy weapons in battle in Iraq?
WILLIAM ARKIN: You know, there's even some possibility
that high power microwaves have been used experimentally.
I think that the panic about IEDs, about Improvised
Explosives Devices, has been so bad that if these things
are sitting in the lab, I'm sure that they want to get
them to Iraq to see whether they are effective. So I can
imagine that there could be some, what we call, "black"
use of these weapons, but not in any significant way, and
certainly not in such a way that one would conclude that
they've had any impact.
NARRATOR: But let's look at the Pentagon budget figures
to see how important the outlay is for directed energy
WILLIAM ARKIN: Right now you have about $50 million a year
being spent for non-lethal weapons, you have about another
$200 million or so being spent on High Power Microwaves,
Active Denial type Systems, you've got probably another
$100-200 million being spent on "secret", "black" laser
programs, and then you have the big lasers, the High
Energy Lasers of the Air force and the other Tactical
Lasers. So probably, when you add all of that up, you know
the United States are probably spending $1/2 billion a
year right now on directed energy weapons. This is a
significant amount of money; this is the size of the
Defence Budget of some countries in Europe.
NARRATOR: You might think that energy weapons only pose a
danger for the countries involved in a military conflict,
but that's not the case. One particular weapon called the
Active Denial System - better known as the pain ray - has
been built specifically for use in maintaining public
order. Given its claim to be non-lethal and the suffering
it produces, this weapon could become a very controversial
RETIRED COLONEL JOHN B. ALEXANDER: The Active Denial
System is a Millimetre Wave System, operates at about 93
GHz. It sends out a beam for a very long distance, and
what's important about it is that when it hits the skin it
penetrates only a very slight, for a few millimetres under
the skin and it it's the pain receptors and causes, you
know, people to be adverse to the pain.
It hurts, it hurts a lot.
The tests that had been run they were to go for 3 seconds,
each individual was given a kill switch and nobody made 3
seconds. The answer to the pain is extremely rapid, and
you don't have to do it very long, I mean, it gets your
NARRATOR: To understand the consequences this new weapon
could have for human rights we went to the Empire State
Building in Manhattan, home of the offices of Human Rights
Watch, one of the most important human rights
MARC GARLASCO: We can see the effects of a gun very easily
and understand them, but when you cannot see the effect of
a weapon because it is not visible and because the science
is not very well understood because technology is so new,
then it becomes a grieve concern that enrages the states
for potential human rights violations and abuses. And that
is something that we have to understand about the Active
Denial System, that it exists to create pain and is very
different in most other non-lethal weapons where the
desire is either to immobilize someone or make it so that
they cannot walk in the area. With the Active Denial
System the main desire is pain, and we have to be very
careful because in international law is very clear that
devices created solely for the creation of pain can
eventually lead to torture and are therefore illegal, and
it's very critical that the United States does a careful
legal review of the Active Denial System and is open with
their findings. To date they have not been open.
WILLIAM ARKIN: Some people say "ooh acoustic weapons, or
High Power Microwave weapons, the Active Denial System, we
can use it for crowd control..."
What crowd control? What does that mean?
It pretends that anyone in the crowd is eighteen years
old, and male and in good health, and we're just going to
shoot these microwaves or shoot these acoustic weapons on
this crowd, and it's going to be carefully calibrated at a
power level, in the intensity and at a range to affect all
these eighteen years old men in the crowd.
Well, what crowd is made up of just eighteen years old
Look at the Intifada, look at any riot in Iraq today:
children, women, pregnant women, old people, and so the
effect... the effect that you would need in order to have
an impact on a healthy male, you target, would be too much
for a child or a pregnant woman or an old person.
MARC GARLASCO: There's been a lot of discussion also about
the potential for eye damage. They have done some tests on
the skin to show that is not harmful, but where is the eye
test? And there are concerns raised by scientists about
potential harm to the eyes. And we also have concerns
about the effects to children, to the infirm, to the
elderly... Why are they not producing the data? Why are
they not sharing it with us?
NARRATOR: As regards the use of the pain ray in the field
of war, the military review Defence Industry Daily reports
that three Sheriff vehicles were ordered at a price of
about 31 million dollars, and that approval has been
requested for another 14 vehicles by Brigadier General
James Haggin, chief of staff of the multinational forces
RETIRED COLONEL JOHN B. ALEXANDER: In my view the next
global conflict has already began and we don't have an
understanding of what that conflict looks like. Because of
the issues of terrorism for instance the adversaries are
going to be I think mixed in with civilian populations. We
need weapons that allow us to be able to sort, minimize
what they call "collateral casualties". I think the
battlefields are going to be in urban areas.
WILLIAM ARKIN: If you look at the Active Denial System, or
the High Power Microwaves, or the LRAD, the acoustic
weapon, what you see is enthusiasm for those are being
displayed by the US Northern Command, which is the
homeland defence command of the United States, or other
counterterrorism organizations, which are looking at them
like "oh well, maybe, in some special circumstances we can
take these secret weapons, boutique weapons, you know, we
have only 10 or 20 of them somewhere in a secret place and
if we need them we can pull them out and use them in this
kind of specialty warfare". So ironically, even though the
Americans would probably think "oh yeah, special new
weapon, it would make sense because Iraq is such a mess
and maybe we can do something to turn that corner in some
way with the use of this weapon, the truth is that the
only real way in which they, the military, sees the
prospects for the deployment of these is in their domestic
use. And you know quite well... that if the United States
adopts these weapons for their domestic defence... NATO
and Italy are not far behind...
