The Military Doctrine paper Mind War by Michael Aquino and Colonel Paul E. Valley is a crucial piece of the puzzle of the current infiltration counterinsurgency program. Written in 1980 at the beginning of the Reagan administration while Valley and Aquino worked at the Presidio, headquarters of the 7th Psychological Operations Group. Divulging classified information or technology can be punished by life in prison, so when writing about current technology that is secret, military strategists commonly use the ruse of talking about existing systems as being future technology, or veil their comments so that only the select few will see the deeper meaning. It is standard practice to produce an unclassified version that can be published publicly and a classified version that is more explicit or in many cases contradictory, in other words, often what is printed publicly are lies. Despite that practice, the public version of this very historical document contains the following revealing quotes by the authors. (In Vietnam)...our PSYOP failed...because it was outmatched by the PSYOP of the enemy. ...Our own PSYOP did not really change the minds of the enemy populace, nor did it defend the US populace at home against the propaganda of the enemy. Furthermore the enemy's PSYOP was so strong that it- not bigger armies or better weapons-overcame all of the weapons systems we fielded. The lesson is not to ignore our own PSYOP capability, but rather to change it and strengthen it so that it can do precisely that kind of thing to our enemy in the next war for the mind." "Psychotronic research is in its infancy, but the US Army already possesses an operational weapons system designed to do what Lt. Col. J.B. Alexander would like ESP to do- except that this weapons system uses existing communications media. It seeks to map the minds of neutral and enemy individuals and then change them in accordance with US national interests". "It must strengthen our national will to victory and it must attack and ultimately destroy that of our enemy. It both causes and is affected by physical combat, but it is a type of war which is fought on a far more subtle basis as well-in the minds of the national populations involved." "If we do not attack the enemy's will until he reaches the battlefield, his nation will have strengthened it as best it can. We must attack that will before it is locked into place. We must instill in it a predisposition to inevitable defeat." "Strategic MindWar must begin the moment war is considered to be inevitable. It must seek out the attention of the enemy nation through every available medium, and it must strike at the nation's potential soldiers before they put on their uniforms. It is in their homes and their communities that they are most vulnerable to MindWar. Was the US defeated in the jungles of Vietnam, or was it defeated in the streets of American cities. In its strategic context, MindWar must reach out to friends, enemies, and neutrals alike across the globe- neither through primitive "battlefield" leaflets and loudspeakers of PSYOP nor through the weak, imprecise, and narrow efforts of psychotronics- but through the media possessed by the US which have the capabilities to reach virtually all people on the face of the Earth." "For the mind to believe in its own decisions, it must feel that it made those decisions without coercion. Coercive measures used by the operative, consequently must not be detectable by ordinary means. There is no need to resort to mind-weakening drugs such as those explored by the CIA; in fact the exposure of a single such method would do unacceptable damage to MindWar's reputation for truth." "Existing PSYOP identifies purely sociological factors, which suggest appropriate idioms for messages. Doctrine in this area is highly developed, and the task is basically one of assembling and maintaining individuals and teams with enough expertise and experience to apply the doctrine effectively. This, however, is only the sociological dimension of target receptiveness measures. There are some purely natural conditions under which minds may become more or less receptive to ideas, and MindWar should take full advantage of such phenomena as atmospheric electromagnetic activity, air ionization, and extremely low frequency waves (21)." "If we do not accept Excalibur, then we relinquish our ability to inspire foreign cultures with our morality. If they then desire moralities unsatisfactory to us, we have no choice but to fight them on a more brutish level." The following footnote to ELF is included. 21. Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) waves: ELF waves up to 100 Hz are naturally occurring but they can also be produced artificially (such as for the Navy's Project Sanguine for submarine communication). ELF-waves are not normally noticed by the unaided senses, yet their resonant effect upon the human body has been connected to both physiological disorders and emotional distortion. Infrasound vibration (up to 20 Hz) can subliminally influence brain activity to align itself to Delta, Theta, Alpha, or Beta wave patterns, inclining an audience toward everything from alertness to passivity. Infrasound could be used tactically, as ELF-waves endure for great distances; and it could be used in conjunction with media broadcasts as well. The footnote on ELF is fairly specific and admits that it is to be used in "conjunction" with television and radio, in short, the ELF MindWar attack signal will be piggybacked on a TV carrier wave to target civilian populations in their homes to instill feelings of fear and terror prior to the start of a conflict. The power of ELF to change the mood and thoughts of enemy populations was well understood by the US PSYOP forces, and to Valley and Aquino in particular. If these weapons were turned against friendly populations it would be extremely difficult to detect their influence. The Psychology of Victory," paper represents a scheme for waging perpetual psychological warfare against friend and enemy populations alike, particularly against the American people. The "MindWar" paper was provoked by an article by Lt. Col. John Alexander, which appeared in the December 1980 edition of Military Review, advocating the introduction of ESP (extra-sensory perception), "telepathic behavior modification" para-psychology, psycho kinesis ("mind over matter"), remote viewing, out of body experiences, and other New Age and occult practices into U.S. military intelligence. Alexander's paper was titled "The New Mental Battlefield: Beam Me Up, Spock." Lt. Col John B. Alexander has been in charge of non-lethal weapons development for twenty years.

Visiting scientist, Los Alamos, 1995 to present. Col. Alexander received a National Award for Volunteerism from Pres. Ronald Reagan in 1987, and the Aerospace Laureate Award from Aviation Week in 1993 & 94. Alexander organized a national conference devoted to researching 'reports of ritual abuse, near-death experiences, human contacts with extraterrestrial aliens and other so-called anomalous experiences,' the Albuquerque Journal reported in March 1993. The Australian magazine Nexus reported last year that in 1971, Alexander 'was diving in the Biminis Islands looking for the lost continent of Atlantis. He was an official representative for the Silva mind control organization and a lecturer on precataclysmic civilizations ... [and] he helped perform ESP experiments with dolphins.' "In The Warrior's Edge: Front-line Strategies for Victory on the Corporate Battlefield - a 1990 book he co-authored with Maj. Richard Groller and Janet Morris - Alexander describes himself as having 'evolved from hard-core mercenary to thanatologist.' 'As a Special Forces A-Team commander in Thailand and Vietnam, he led hundreds of mercenaries into battle,' the book explains. 'At the same time, he studied meditation in Buddhist monasteries and later engaged in technical exploration and demonstration of advanced human performance.'(Aftergood, 1994) Formerly with the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) under Gen. Albert Stubblebine, 1982-4. Reportedly, Alexander was one of Stubblebine's closest officers. Married to alien abduction researcher Victoria Lacas (now Alexander). "After retiring from the Army in 1988, Alexander joined the Los Alamos National Laboratories and began working with Janet Morris, the Research Director of the U.S. Global Strategy Council (USGSC), chaired by Dr Ray Cline, former Deputy Director of the CIA." "Born in New York in 1937, he spent part of his career as a Commander of Green Berets Special Forces in Vietnam, led Cambodian mercenaries behind enemy lines, and took part in a number of clandestine programs, including Phoenix. He currently holds the post of Director of Non- lethal Programs in the Los Alamos National Laboratories." "In 1971, while a Captain in the infantry at Schofield Barracks, Honolulu, he was diving in the Biminis Islands looking for the lost continent of Atlantis. He was an official representative for the Silva mind control organization and a lecturer on Pre-cataclysmic Civilizations. Alexander is also a past President and a Board member of the International Association for Near Death Studies; and, with his former wife, Jan Northup, he helped Dr C.B. Scott Jones perform ESP experiments with dolphins." "(Aftergood, Steven, "The Soft-Kill Fallacy", Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 9-10/1994, v50, n5, p40) C.B. Scott Jones: Falcon President of the Human Potential Foundation, "He served in Naval Intelligence for approximately 15 years, including assignments with Carrier Division 14, and as Assistant Naval Attaché, New Delhi, India, and Kathmandu, Nepal in the 1960s. He collected intelligence and provided intelligence support throughout Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa." "Jones has briefed the President's Scientific Advisory Committee, and has testified before House and Senate committees on intelligence matters." He retired from the Navy around 1976 due to a para-psychological experience. After retiring, he worked for several companies, including R. F. Cross Associates, Ltd., and Kaman Tempo, a division of Kaman Sciences. This work involved development in projects sponsored by the Defense Nuclear Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), and the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). "In 1989, MUFON appointed Jones as a Special Consultant in International Relations" "Scott has been on the Board of Trustees of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) since 1985, and now  serves as its President." Formed the Human Potential Foundation in 1989. "Jones has conducted his own dolphin telepathy studies along with Colonel John Alexander and Theodore Rockwell, a prominent (Who's Who) nuclear engineer who has worked on naval nuclear propulsion systems and who also serves as vice president of the U.S. Psychotronics Association." In his paper "Government UFO Connections" (included in "Phoenix in the Labyrinth), he claims to have no knowledge of government involvement in UFOs. Michael Persinger "is/was a big buddy of C. B. Jones. A Navy pilot and intelligence officer for forty years, he retains his security clearance. While a Navy attaché in India, he experienced an unknown paranormal event that "enabled me to do my intelligence assignment with much greater speed than one ordinarily expected." A believer in UFOs since he saw one during the Korean War. His book Phoenix in the Labyrinth reportedly deals with PSI-TECH a great deal. On the registration questionnaire for the 5/28/95 "When Cosmic Cultures Meet" conference, Jones asked attendees if they would consider taking a drug that would result in telepathic contact with aliens. While working for Sen. Pell, Jones was in contact with many psychics, and often put them in touch with intelligence agencies. In 1989, Scott claimed that the government probably didn't have a large parapsychology program. In this essay, he also seems to doubt that the US could carry on a mind-control program (again), due to the checks and balances of our democratic system. Jones has attended conferences in the former Soviet Union and his foundation is also involved with the research of Russian scientist Dr. Igor Smirnov. Jack Verona: Raven Jack Verona Former nuclear physicist, high ranking Pentagon scientist. Former head of the DIA's Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate. In this capacity, he oversaw the funding and tasking of Grill Flame. Another project he oversaw, code-named Sleeping Beauty, dealt with researching microwaves and how they affect the human mind. Reportedly the former boss of Michael Persinger, he retired in late 1989. (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America's Psychic Spies, Dell, 1997, pg 220) Harold Puthoff: Owl Born 6/20/36. BS and MS in electrical engineering from the University of Florida. After graduating, Puthoff served in the Army on duty with the NSA at Fort Meade, Maryland. There, he worked as an engineer with Project Light, which studied fiber optics, lasers, and high-speed computers (very cutting edge at the time). After leaving, he invented the tunable infra-red laser. Joined Stanford Research Institute in 1971 as a specialist in laser physics. Worked for the previous eight years in the Microwave Laboratory at Stanford University. Served as an officer in the Navy from 1960-63 at Ft. Meade. Head of the SRI remote viewing program, 1972-85. "Dr. Harold E. Puthoff is Director of the Institute for Advanced Studies at Austin. A theoretical and experimental physicist specializing in fundamental electrodynamics, his research ranges from theoretical studies of quantum vacuum states as they apply to the stability of matter, gravitation, cosmology and energy research, to laboratory studies of innovative approaches to energy generation. A graduate of Stanford University in 1967, he has published over 30 technical papers in the areas of electron-beam devices, lasers and quantum zero-point-energy effects, has patents issued and pending in the laser, communications, and energy fields, and is co-author of a textbook Fundamentals of Quantum Electronics (Wiley, 1969), published in English, French and Russian. He is claimed to have been at OT (Operating Thetan) Level III with the Church of Scientology at the time of the experiments. He wrote the preface to Scientology: a Religion, and was married in a Scientology church. "Puthoff says his involvement with the church more than a decade ago was casual." Puthoff joined the Church in the 1960s, and left in the mid-1970s. After leaving, he lent support to a group that criticized the Church. It was during an LA training seminar that he met Pat Price, who later worked at SRI. According to Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird, in The Secret Life of Plants, while at SRI, Puthoff did experiments with chicken eggs. Using an e-meter (invented by L. Ron Hubbard and used in the practices of Scientology), he attempted to see if an egg would react if another was broken nearby. US Psychotronic Association: Lt. Col. Thomas E. Bearden , US Army, Retired. Former Pentagon analyst "He is President and CEO of CTEC, Inc., a private R&D corporation engaged in research on free energy devices and the mechanisms for interaction of EM fields and radiation with biological systems. He is president of the Association of Distinguished American Scientists (ADAS), a life member of the Alabama Academy of Science, and served on the Board of Directors of the U.S. Psychotronics Association and the American Association of Metascience. He edited and published Specula, Journal of the AAMS, for four years. He also served on the Board of Directors of Astron, Inc., a private aerospace R&D corporation in the greater Washington D.C. area, noted for its specialized RF antennas...He and his wife Doris live in Huntsville, Alabama where Tom is retired from aerospace, continues private research, and serves as a special consultant to industry on scalar electromagnetics processes" (Virtual Times introduction) "Lt. Col. Thomas E. Bearden is a nuclear engineer, war games and weapons analyst, and military tactician. He has an MS in nuclear engineering from Georgia Tech and is a graduate of the US Army Command and General Staff College and several US Army artillery and guided missile schools. He has over 30 years experience in air defense systems, technical intelligence, Soviet electromagnetic weaponry, artificial intelligence, computerized war games, and anti-missile radiation countermeasures. He is a senior scientist with a large aerospace company [Colsa Corp.] Col. Bearden personally developed and published the basis for a drastic revision of electromagnetic theory and engineering, based on the work of Whittaker and Maxwell. His work is primarily responsible for the widespread interest and research into scalar electromagnetic phenomena in this country over the past decade." (Megabrain report, 2/4/91) Member: US Psychotonics Association Claims that Soviet psychic experiments have caused Legionnaire's disease, cattle mutilations, UFO abductions, and the sinking of the US submarine Thresher. Claims that these experiments have aroused mankind's collective unconsciousness, called ZARG. Many of his theories were published before retirement and are available through the Defense Documentation Center. His views are supported by John Alexander. After retirement, Bearden was contracted by the Pentagon to study the "photonic barrier modulator", "hyper spatial nuclear howitzer", and the connection between ESP and UFOs. (McRae, Ronald, Mind Wars, St. Martin's Press, 1984, pp 126-9) In The Controllers, Martin Cannon argues that ``alien abductions'' might actually be a cover for government mind control and experimentation. This article contains a great deal of documented research about mind control technology, especially brain implants. For example: ``Perhaps the most disturbing wanderer into this mind-field is Joseph A. Meyer, of the National Security Agency, the most formidable and secretive component of America's national security complex. Meyer has proposed implanting roughly half of all Americans arrested -- not necessarily convicted -- of any crime; the numbers of `subscribers' (his euphemism) would run into the tens of millions. `Subscribers' could be monitored continually by computer wherever they went. Meyer, who has carefully worked out the economics of his mass-implantation system, asserts that taxpayer liability should be reduced by forcing subscribers to `rent' the implant from the State. Implants are cheaper and more efficient than police, Meyer suggests, since the call to crime is relentless for the poor `urban dweller' -- who, this spook-scientist admits in a surprisingly candid aside, is fundamentally unnecessary to a post-industrial economy. `Urban dweller' may be another of Meyer's euphemisms: He uses New York's Harlem as his model community in working out the details of his mind-management system. Russell Targ: (scientology) Partner with Hal Puthoff in the SRI remote viewing project. Russell Targ is a senior research physicist at Stanford Research Institute, having joined their electronics and bioengineering laboratory in 1972. Prior to that, he spent 10 years in laser and plasma physics research with Sylvania Corporation, developing gas lasers...He is also president of the Parapsychology Research Group. "In May 1982, Elisabeth Targ and I (R.T.) were invited to hold a workshop at Esalen Institute for a group of twenty-five professional men and women." In 1982, Targ left SRI and founded Delphi Associates with Keith Harary. Delphi Associates was a consultancy, which sought to apply psi to finding oil, gas, etc. Using Harary as a viewer, they claimed to have successfully traded in the silver market. Before officially leaving SRI, Targ, along with Harary and businessman Tony White, founded Delphi Associates. Their first project was to develop a psi-related game for Atari, but Atari went under before the deal was completed. Delphi then went on to try to predict silver futures on the market. After several reported successes, there were two misses, which scared off their investor. Each blamed each other for the failure, and the argument went public during a lecture Harary gave at the Esalen Institute. Russell Targ is now apparently working with Lockheed Martin Missiles & Space Co., where his work deals with using lasers to determine wind patterns. In April, 1996, he co-chaired a session on "Advanced Sensor Technologies" at the Aerospace/Defense Sensing and Controls conference. He is also indentified as being with the Bay Research Institute in Palo Alto, and was involved with the Physics/Consciousness Research Group. Targ is President of the International Remote Viewing Association. (Jim Schnabel) Special access programs (SAPs) employ a variety of security measures that are far more restrictive than those used in ―ordinary‖ classified programs and shield them from independent oversight. These controls provide extraordinary protection by keeping personnel access to a minimum needed to meet program goals, names officials to screen persons seeking access, using access lists and registered unclassified nicknames and classified code words. Only ―core secrets‖ have special access controls, examples of which might be a technology breakthrough or exploitation of an enemy‘s weakness. ―Cover stories may be established for unacknowledged programs in order to protect the integrity of that program from individuals who do not have a need-to-know. Cover stories must be believable and cannot reveal any information regarding the true nature of the contract. Cover stories for SAPs must have the approval of the PSO (program security officer) prior to the dissemination.‖ One such example of a cover story, ―In the darkest days of the cold war, the military lied to the American public about the true nature of many unidentified flying objects in an effort to hide it‘s growing fleet of spy planes. The deceptions were made in the 1950‘s and 60‘s amid a wave of UFO sightings that alarmed the public and parts of official Washington.‖ The lies, experiments, and cover stories continue in every field of science. The lies have been institutionalized with breakthroughs in health, energy, propulsion, communications and information technology which are classified and hidden from view. (Begich pg 73) In 1939 Orson Wells broadcast the War of the Worlds radio program that had the effect of general panic along the entire east coast of the US. People who listened to the broadcast and did not hear the disclaimer at the beginning of the program actually believed they were under attack. This unintentional psychological warfare operation may have been the basis for the military use of UFO stories as a cover for other sensitive military operations such as the masking of Air Force experimental aircraft. Implanting memories of alien abduction as a cover for kidnapping and mind control experimentation may have been another. Many of the UFO organizations and conventions have military intelligence assets present and much of the UFO literature may be attributed to authors with connections to intelligence agencies.
