Definitions:Active Denial System (ADS)
= ADS was developed under the sponsorship of the DoD Non-Lethal Weapons Program with the Air Force Research Laboratory as the lead agency. It is a non-lethal, directed-energy weapon designed for area denial, perimeter security and crowd control. Raytheon is currently marketing a reduced-range version of this technology named the Silent Guardian. Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs)
: emits energy in an aimed direction without the means of a projectile. It transfers energy to a target for a desired effect.
The energy can come in various forms:
Microwave Auditory Effect (MAE)
- Electromagnetic radiation, in lasers or masers
- Particles with mass, in particle-beam weapons (technically a form of micro-projectile weapon)
- Sound, in sonic weapons
= "The microwave auditory effect, also known as the microwave hearing effect or the Frey effect. Research by NASA in the 1970s showed that this effect occurs as a result of thermal expansion of parts of the human ear around the cochlea, even at low power density. Later, signal modulation was found to produce sounds or words that appeared to originate intracranially. It was studied for its possible use in communications. Both the United States and USSR studied its use in non-lethal weaponry.COINTELPRO The FBI (1956-1971)
= short for Counterintelligence Program to disrupt the activities of targeted groups.
FBI records show that 85% of COINTELPRO resources targeted groups and individuals that the FBI deemed "subversive", including communist and socialist organizations; organizations and individuals associated with the civil rights movement.
The program was successfully kept secret until 1971, when the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI burglarized an FBI field office in Media, Pennsylvania, took several dossiers, and exposed the program by passing this information to news agencies. Many news organizations initially refused to publish the information. Within the year, Director J. Edgar Hoover declared that the centralized COINTELPRO was over, and that all future counterintelligence operations would be handled on a case-by-case basis.The New COINTELPRO (2001 - Present)
= since 9/11, overzealous FBI agents and informants have overreacted to minor threats and ensnared hapless losers in their stings by encouraging, escalating or even creating the very plots they bust under the auspices of counter-terrorism. Example: trying to link the Occupy (Cleveland) movement to terrorism. Some say it reminds them of the FBI's abuses of power under J. Edgar Hoover, when agents infiltrated political organizations and tried to undermine and discredit activists from Martin Luther King Jr. to John Lennon. Red Squads
= In the United States, Red Squads were police intelligence units that specialized in infiltrating, conducting counter-measures and gathering intelligence on political and social groups during the 20th century. Dating as far back as the Haymarket Riot in 1886, Red Squads became common in larger cities such as Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles during the First Red Scare of the 1920s. They were set up as specialized units of city police departments, as a weapon against labor unions, communists, anarchists, and other dissidents.Gang Stalking
= A target (TI) is followed around and placed under intrusive and directed surveillance by groups of organized “Covert Human Intelligence Sources” also known as Citizen Informants.Non-lethal Behavioral Influencing Technologies
= Highly classified non-lethal weapons experiments, using civilians, or others, that couple neuroscience, computer to brain interface, satellite based transmission, and radio frequency and ELF. From USAF documents, the writings of Professor Peter Phillips, Dr. Nick Begich, and Carole Smith.Behavioral Conditioning Experiments
= The U.S. Government's non-lethal weapons are being used in a type of psychiatric/medical experiment that tries to change human behavior by remote. The team doing this experiment consists of a few psychiatrists, psychologists, neuroscientists, computer experts, military leaders... This experiment started out as way to perfect the super soldier technology [Future Force Warrior, Future Combat Systems]. Specific frequencies (called "classified" are set aside by the Department of Energy for military/experimental use). Alleged U.S.Air Force involvement.IIC
= The IIC is a constellation of integration or "smart" satellites. A wide range of lethal and nonlethal weapons will be linked to the IIC, allowing authorized users to directly employ these weapons. A user's authority to employ weapons will depend on the person's position, responsibility, and rank. Terrorism Information and Prevention System (Operation TIPS)
= was a domestic intelligence-gathering program designed by President George W. Bush to have United States citizens report suspicious activity. The program's website implied that US workers who had access to private citizens' homes, such as cable installers and telephone repair workers, would be reporting on what was in people's homes if it were deemed "suspicious." Information provided would be kept on a Justice Department database, which will then be broadly available within the department, and to state and local agencies and local police forces.Terrorism Liaison Officer
= A Terrorism Liaison Officer is a public citizen in the United States of America who has been trained to report suspicious activity that may be encountered during the course of his or her normal occupation as part of the United States' War on Terror. While some of these individuals are members of local law enforcement agencies, others such as paramedics, utility workers, and railroad employees have also been recruited into the program.Covert Human Intelligence Sources (CHIS)
= are Agents. Agents
= An agent is anyone able to provide intelligence that assists investigations. Agents are not members of an intelligence organization or a "intelligence officer." Informant =
is a person who provides privileged information about a person or organization to an agency. The term is usually used within the law enforcement world, where they are officially known as confidential or criminal informants (CI), [FBI Informant] and can often refer pejoratively to the supply of information without the consent of the other parties with the intent of malicious, personal or financial gain. Slang: rat, snitch
. Psychological Torture (PT)
= is the intentional infliction of suffering without resorting to direct physical violence. No-Touch Torture
= Is a form of PT (psychological torture) using non lethal weapons such as a DEW (direct energy weapon). Targeted Individual (TI)
= A person being targeted, harassed using no-touch torture methods. Targeted Killing
= is the premeditated killing of an individual, by a state, organization or institution, outside a battlefield. The legality of targeted killing is disputed.'Kill List'
= A rationale for murdering suspect citizens of countries with which the United States was not at war. The list began under the Bush regime. President Obama expanded the scope of the list to include the execution, without due process of law, of U.S. citizens accused, without evidence presented in court, of association with terrorism. FISA Amendment Act
= provided congressional sanction for the secret and illegal warrantless wiretapping program initiated by the Bush administration in 2001. The legislation explicitly allowed the NSA to conduct dragnet surveillance of international communications by Americans. Conceivably opened the door to abuses of power and unwarranted surveillance. It is being compared to the East German Stasi (Ministerium für Staatssicherheit, MfS)
.PRISM (surveillance program)
= is a clandestine national security electronic surveillance program operated by the United States National Security Agency (NSA) since 2007. PRISM is a government code name for a data-collection effort known officially by the SIGAD US-984XN
On September 11, 2007, U.S. President George W. Bush signed the Protect America Act of 2007, allowing the NSA to start a massive domestic surveillance program. The program is operated under the supervision of the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) pursuant to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). Its existence was leaked five years later by NSA contractor Edward Snowden, who claimed the extent of mass data collection was far greater than the public knew, and included "dangerous" and "criminal" activities in law. The disclosures were published by The Guardian and The Washington Post on June 6, 2013.
