Lin Ruey-shiung, the running mate of independent candidate James Soong, surprised the public last week when he claimed to have been subjected to "electromagnetic wave" attacks by the bureau on September 20 outside his home and over the following three days. "If I hadn't quickly moved out (of my home), I would have lost my mind," he told reporters.

Sounds like the reports of the "The Moscow Signal" attacks on the US embassy in the 1970's.
... Not until Jack Anderson broke the 'Moscow Signal' story in 1972 did the public learn the truth. Several months after Anderson's microwave column, the Soviets accused the U.S. of irradiating chess wizard Boris Spaasky with electronic devices, causing him to lose a championship match to Bobby Fischer.
On February 7, 1976, the Los Angeles Times quoted U.S. Ambassador Walter J. Stoessel, Jr., as telling his staff that the microwaves could cause leukemia, skin cancer, cataracts, and emotional illness.
Stoessel himself was reportedly suffering from a mysterious illness resembling leukemia which caused [color=FDD017]bleeding in the eyes and nausea.
[color=Cyan]Two of his predecessors at the embassy died of cancer.
[color=Chartreuse]According to National Security Advisor Zbignew Brezhinski, U.S. embassy personnel in Moscow suffer the highest cancer rate in the world.
Today, despite a brief respite, the bombardment of the embassy continues while much of the evidence gathered by U.S. intelligence agencies remains classified.
However, raising the lid on PROJECT PANDORA has uncovered a box full of secrets about microwave effects..
U.S. interest in this "less-than-lethal" technology dates back to the early 1960s, when the
State Department became aware of low-energy microwave radiation directed at the U.S. embassy in Moscow.
Under the name "Project Pandora," secret research into the Moscow [color=Cyan]radiation continued for ten years -- before embassy employees were informed that they were on the receiving end. Researchers initially assumed that the microwaves were designed to activate bugging devices.
But when a large number of illnesses were reported at the embassy, a review of Soviet scientific journals revealed that the Soviets believed microwaves affected cell membranes and increased the excitability of nerve cells.
Officially, the incidence of illness at the embassy was ultimately blamed on the U.S. shortwave transmitting antenna on the embassy roof, which leaked energy and contributed to the unhealthy environment. Still, the secrecy surrounding Project Pandora encouraged further speculation within the U.S. intelligence community and elsewhere.
For instance, researchers knew that [color=Cyan]a low-energy microwave beam could be modulated with an "audiogram," and actually convey a recognizable message into an irradiated brain. This led some U.S. spooks to suspect that the Soviets had been attempting to practice mind control on the embassy staff...
One problem is the compartmentation of the CIA's record-keeping systems. Another is that the CIA immediately decided that the Committee's purview was restricted only to ionizing radiation -- the type of radiation of interest in nuclear testing, as opposed to the electromagnetic and sound waves that might be used for mind control. Finally, those documents that the CIA did release were heavily redacted.
The Committee noted that they had "received numerous queries about MKULTRA and the other related programs from scholars, journalists, and citizens who have been unable to review the complete record."
In fact, most of the MKULTRA records were destroyed in 1973 by the order of Richard Helms, who waived an internal CIA regulation to do so. It was also the practice of MKULTRA to maintain as few records as possible...
Something is going on here, and chances are excellent that it's not happening merely for our general amusement.
Whoever the men in black turn out to be, it's not the casually-titillated viewer of "The X Files" that worries them.
Instead, [color=3BB0FF]it's the relentless researchers who track their careers and publicize their deeds, hoping that one day the state will have no secrets, and that those who live off of its impoverished taxpayers will, in the end, be held accountable...
