Successful researcher, Nick Redfern posted an interesting blog
this month that pointed out how one of the MJ-12 documents
was found at the back of a
FOIA release (pdf link)
. He doesn’t say how it came to his
attention and it isn’t clear how long the documents have been in-the-wild before the bizarre inclusion was noticed.
Michael S Heiser
has also commented on the release
over at his informative new site.
The document release is about Projects Pandora and Bizarre and tells a fascinating tale of secret research into the effects of microwave radiation on
mice, rats, monkeys and…humans. The tests were conducted in the 1950s/1960s and the names we see suggest that they were also looking for new weapons
whilst worrying that the Soviets had already weaponised microwave radiation. The FOIA request is from a writer who was alleged to have been targeted
with mind-control technology based on microwave radiation. It’s quite a story and has led to the projects being taken as proof that certain groups
were/are using mind-control technology on randomly chosen people.
How the Projects Pandora/Bizarre began
Back in the mid-60s, US embassy staff in Moscow discovered that they were being targeted with a steady stream of microwave radiation (MR). A CIA
security sweep had registered unusual MR patterns – the ‘Moscow signal.’ It was a massive concern to national security, wobbly diplomatic
relations and the Intelligence community. It caused enough concern in Washington that Project Pandora was created to investigate the effects of MR and
to see if staff were at risk. To this day, the US is still unclear about what happened…or why.
Under the project, they built anechoic chambers
and began directing
MR at rats and mice for extended periods of time and under various conditions – fed, awake, asleep etc. Separate studies, under the project, carried
out the same experiments on primates and focused the MR on brains.
Another study was carried out by Dr Kubis on sailors aboard the USS Saratoga - they tested for injuries, plasma damage, diminished thinking and
reaction times. Further research went into the circumstances surrounding Downs Syndrome births in Baltimore.

Despite the seeming lack of evidence to support the weaponisation of MR, the 'external’ people who were copied in to all correspondence prove quite
interesting. Paul Tamarkin's
’s published research focused on nuclear detonations in
the atmosphere. This was part of the pursuit of an early-warning system when the threat of nuclear attack was a reality. Richard S Cesaro is described
by NASA historians:
From the Air Force came dynamic and aggressive Richard S. Cesaro. He was recommended to York by Richard Horner, assistant
secretary of the Air Force for R&D, and came to ARPA in June.12 Cesaro, a long-time employee of NACA in propulsion research and committee management,
had moved to the Air Research and Development Command headquarters in January and was the technical director for aeronautics and astronautics. Cesaro
was a master at maneuvers in government decision-making processes, a technical gadfly, and an aggressive proponent for using advanced technology.
HM Grove’s published research focused on the lethality of
MR on rats
and the the
‘'generation of acoustic signals by pulsed microwave
.’ It’s possible his research was looking for a way to use MR as a debilitating beam and also exploring ways of disrupting minds
with acoustic interference.
