Filling in for Art Bell, George Noory welcomed researcher William Thomas, who discussed the US military's usage of electronic mind control-type technology in Iraq. Thomas was joined by Gulf War veteran "Hank" (a pseudonym, as he wished to remain anonymous) who offered corroborative material which he said was gleaned from the battlefields in Iraq and Afghanistan.The technology was derived from the US Navy's experiments with sonar, said Thomas, who explained that devices known as "poppers," are able to transmit microwave and other frequencies and were used against Iraqi leadership. Mental capacities become fogged after exposure, and thoughts can then be more readily influenced or changed, detailed Hank. The poppers, each connected to their own generator, operated within a half-mile radius, but their power and range could be enhanced when overlapped with a second device, said Thomas.
One of the main problems with the technology is that civilians and US troops suffered physical and mental effects from being in the range of the transmissions, Thomas pointed out. Additionally, the outcome of exposure to the weapon is unpredictable and it's difficult to evaluate whether it's achieving the desired effect, Hank stated. He added that usage of the 25 poppers in Iraq ended after a mysterious malfunction and the units were moved to Maryland.
Thomas also shared an update on chemtrails at the beginning of his appearance. His latest view is that the aerial spraying is taking place as part of a climate modification program, in which reflective particles such as aluminum oxide act as a "sunscreen" to reduce global warming. Exposure to biological contaminants is an inadvertent side effect of the program, he said.
