In 1965 it was discovered that the US embassy in Moscow was being hit with electromagnetic radiation in the microwave spectrum, but the fact was kept secret from the embassy employees. Ambassador Stoessel
contracted a blood disease, bleeding eyes, nausea, and eventually lymphoma. He and other employees eventually died as a result of the microwave attack. Henry Kissinger sent a secret memo giving hazard pay to embassy personnel in the 70's after the secret was exposed in a Jack Anderson column. It is possible that the US government used the embassy staff as microwave guinea pigs. The DOD's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) set up a lab at Walter Reed Army Institute and Participated in Project Pandora.
Scientists began by zapping monkeys to study the biological effects of highly concentrated microwave frequencies. Similar studies were conducted at the V.A hospital in Kansas City, Univ. of Rochester, Brooks Air Force Base in Texas, John Hopkins, MIT, the Mitre corp., Univ. of Pennsylvania, and many other domestic and foreign research labs. The CIA began experimenting with other forms of directed energy in the EM spectrum. Dr. Jose Delgado experimented on four human subjects using radio waves, reporting they experienced different emotions, sensations, and "colored visions". Delgado stated that these weapons were "more dangerous than atomic destruction." With knowledge of the brain, he said, "We may transform, we may shape, direct, robotize man. I think the great danger of the future is...that we will have robotized human beings who are not aware they have been robotized." Delgado was in fact responsible for the development of a brain transponder that was used to robotize human subjects.
