If you live near Frederick Maryland, make sure you don't piss off any old residents who claim that they used to be in Special Ops. The Special Ops they were involved in really were special.

See how special here

Interesting read.
Those guys had devious minds.


Germ dispensers could be concealed in many objects, such as the exhaust system on a 1953 Mercury. ("It might look like a smoky, oil-burning car," Pannier said.) There were invoices for fountain pens, even "1 Toy Dog, 98 cents."


That smoky car could easily be used in a big city.

Did'nt the CIA try to get Casto's beard to fall out by dusting his comb with a delapidary??? I can't find a link, but I heard they tried...

The Baltimore Sun Special Operations Division article mentions this device.

"One of the few survivors is Wallace Pannier, 76, who remembers standing in a Frederick County field watching sheep shot with what the Army called a "nondiscernible bioinoculator" -- a dart gun. The bosses demanded a dart so fine that it could penetrate clothing and skin unnoticed, then dissolve, leaving no trace in an autopsy.

"If the sheep jumped, that meant people were going to jump, too," said Pannier, now living a quiet life tending his flowers and shrubs in Frederick.

Once perfected, the dart gun astonished those who saw it in action. Charles Baronian, a retired Army weapons official, recalls a demonstration at Fort Bragg in North Carolina.

"Twenty-five seconds after it was shot, the sheep just fell to the ground," said Baronian, 73. "It didn't bleat. It didn't move. It just fell dead. You couldn't help but be impressed."

Type PORTON into the Subject Search box and details of about 150 Porton Down film descriptions can be accessed.

All these Porton films are available for purchase by the General Public.

The Porton dart gun was disguised as a cigarette packet and was developed for the UK Secret Intelligence Service by Dr Bill Ladell, the MI6-Porton Down liason officer. This device was then given to the SOD Fort Detrick, who improved it's design.

The CIA claimed in the Church Committee hearings that the device only fired tranquiliser darts/flechettes and was only used on dogs. This was not believed.
