No Pain Ray in Iraq

In Iraq, use of the non-lethal weapon known as the Active Denial System has been 'denied' by the Pentagon, even though US military commanders have repeatedly requested its deployment. The System-- a mounted ray-gun that shoots a pain-causing invisible beam, can be used to disperse angry crowds or mobs, without bullets. The Pentagon is concerned that the public would view this weapon as a kind of torture device. For recent articles on this topic, see The Scotsman(1) and Danger Room(2).
