Bruce Maccabee: Dr. Maccabee has been a Research Physicist at the Naval Surface Weapons Center in Silver Spring, Maryland since 1972. His work has centered on high power lasers, underwater sound, and the Ballistic Missile Defense. He holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the American University in Washington, D.C. Dr. Maccabee was a member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.
In early 1972, psychic Ingo Swann heard of Hal Puthoff’s research proposal through Cleve Backster.
According to Swann, Backster maintained his intelligence connections, andBackster reported that the CIA was interested in his experiments.
Some of Backster’s experiments are documented in “PRIMARY PERCEPTION: Cleve Backster’s astounding mind/plant communication discovery!”, Australian Lateral Thinking Newsletter,1996
Puthoff Head of the SRI remote viewing program, 1972-85. After he left, Puthoff was replaced with Ed May. Former Naval Intelligence Officer. (Puthoff, Harold, “CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing Program at Stanford Research Institute”, Journal of Scientific Exploration, Vol. 10, No. 1, Spring 1996)
The Taser, first electrical shock device developed for use by law enforcement, delivers barbed, dart shaped electrodes to a subject’s body, and 50,000 volt pulses at two millionths of an amp over 12-14 seconds time. (From “Report on the Attorney General’s Conference on Less Than Lethal Weapons“, by Sherry Sweetman, 1987, p 4, which cites “Non-Lethal Weapons for Law Enforcement: Research Needs and Priorities. A Report to the National Science Foundation by the Security Planning Corporation, 1972. Research by Harlan Girard.)
“A U.S. Department of Defense document said that the Army has tested a microwave weapon. It was an extremely powerful ‘electronic flamethrower’. ” (From “Electromagnetic Pollution”)
“A study published by the U.S. Army Mobility Equipment Research and Development Center, titled ‘Analysis of Microwaves for Barrier Warfare’ examines the plausibility of using radio frequency energy in barrier counter-barrier warfare … The report concludes that (a) it is possible to field a truck-portable microwave barrier system that will completely immobilize personnel in the open with present day technology, (b) there is a strong potential for a microwave system that would be capable of delaying or immobilizing personnel in vehicles, (c) with present technology, no method could be identified for a microwave system to destroy the type of armoured material common to tanks.” (From “Electromagnetic Pollution” by Kim Besly, p 15, quoting The Zapping of America by Paul Brodeur.) The report further documents the ability to create third-degree burns on human skin using 3 Gigahertz at 20 watts/square centimeter in two seconds.
Dr. Gordon J. F. MacDonald testified before the House Subcommittee on Oceans and International Environment, concerning low frequency research:“The basic notion there was to create between the electrically charged ionosphere in the higher part of the atmosphere and conducting layers of the surface of the Earth this neutral cavity, to create waves, electrical waves that would be tuned to the brainwaves … about ten cycles per second … you can produce changes in behavioural patterns or in responses.” [From Baker’s “ELF Psychotronic Tyranny” paper.]
The Case-Zablocki Act – Congress passes an act requiring congressional review of executive agreements. In theory, this should make CIA operations more accountable. In fact, it is only marginally effective.
President, Richard Nixon (Republican) is re-elected. Nixon’s involvement, as well as, that of his Vice President, Spiro Agnew, in various nefarious affairs will eventually force their resignations. After Agnew resigns, Nixon appoints Michigan Senator, Gerald Ford top be VP. After Nixon resigns, Ford becomes President by succession to office. Ford later pardons Nixon.
President Nixon signs a treaty that bans [US USSR] anti-ballistic missiles.
Watergate! President Nixon sends in a team of burglars to wiretap Democratic offices at Watergate. The team members have extensive CIA histories, including James McCord, E. Howard Hunt and five of the Cuban burglars. They work for the Committee to Reelect the President (CREEP), which does dirty work like disrupting Democratic campaigns and laundering Nixon’s illegal campaign contributions. CREEP’s activities are funded and organized by another CIA front, the Mullen Company.
Cambodia – Congress votes to cut off CIA funds for its secret war in Cambodia.
Allen Hynek: “There are in excess of 200 reports of the type that we had from down in Louisiana, from people claiming that they have had direct contact with a spacecraft full of aliens. I mean 200 reports from witnesses who are as reliable or more so than these people. I’m not counting the reports from the obvious crackpots that have an axe to grind….If you accept them at face value then you’re forced to accept that we have been visited. Sathco was an Astronomer at the University of Southern California in 1973.
“There exists a phenomenon… that is worthy of systematic rigorous study… The body of data point to an aspect or domain of the natural world not yet explored by science… When the long awaited solution to the UFO problem comes, I believe that it will prove to be not merely the next small step in the march of science but a mighty and totally unexpected quantum jump.” From Hynek, J. Allen, The UFO Experience: A Scientific Inquiry, Chicago: Regnery Co., 1972. Hynek was former Chairman of the Dept. of Astronomy at North Western University and scientific advisor to Project Bluebook from 1952-1969.
Dr. Pierre Gurin “At the very least, it is already possible to show scientifically the evidence for physico-chemical modifications affecting sometimes the ground of alleged landing sites, as well as the effects produced on the vegetation. Such research has already begun and doesn’t necessarily require large sums.” “The UFO problem in its totality, nevertheless, cannot be really understood unless our science someday is able to propose physical models that take into account the observed phenomena. We are not able to know if this will ever occur, and in any event, we are still very far from that stage.” Dr. Pierre Gurin, senior researcher at the French National Council for Scientific Research (CNRS), has written extensively about the need for scientific research in the UFO field. He was concluding a summary of the UFO evidence published in Sciences & Avenir in 1972. Gurin, P., “Le Dossier des Objets Volants Non Identifis,” Sciences & Avenir, No. 307, Paris, September 1972.
