Six months later, a CIA document noted, “The feasibility of remote control of activities in several species of animals has been demonstrated…. Special investigations and evaluations will be conducted toward the application of selected elements of these techniques to man.”
—The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, chapter 12.
First, an update to the previous post. Turns out that it likely was the chief of the Office of Technical Services who drugged Stanley Glickman. There was a lawsuit–delayed by CIA for sixteen years–that finally took place after Glickman died brought on by his sister. Gottlieb died as a result of the stress…or whatever…during the trial as did a judge. This is bit like Q performing an assassination.
The other thing, and if I weren’t so lazy and doing other stuff that interests me, I’d bother to confirm the species, but during discovering the above last night, I had my fifth or sixth encounter with spiders, the third or fourth with this species. The real danger–though the bite is listed as “medically significant”–is contracting necrotizing fasciitis, commonly known as flesh-eating virus. These meat-eaters just don’t brush their mandibles.
It decided to take a walk up and down my leg as if chasing some prey that wasn’t there. Assumed it was a fly, I was awake at the time, and was surprised when I saw it wasn’t. Third or fourth with this kind because I slept through the first time when I walked around for a week feeling a bit Jonah Hex back in 2010.
Which I am relatively certain I’d posted a photo from that just before Gay Pride Minneapolis event in 2010. And yet it’s not here. So here’s one from a few days after. Was much more purple than the photo indicates as I recall.
In any case, IF this is more than coincidence, the notable part is that such an act–if it had a human on the other end of it–is designed to make the target appear and/or be paranoid and/or crazy.
So much for that. Lol.
PS, News today: Sy Hersh on the OBL raid–
A few months into Khadr’s detention — he was, keep in mind, still only a child — guards chained him to the floor of an interrogation room. They pulled his arms and legs behind in a “bow” position, until his limbs strained painfully at their sockets. This was known in the officially sanctioned American torture guides as a “stress position,” and victims often pass out from the pain. Over several hours, the guards contorted Omar into different stress positions, each time shoving him into a painful position on the ground. Eventually, inevitably, he urinated himself.
The MPs returned, mocked him for a while and then poured pine-oil solvent all over his body. Without altering his chains, they began dragging him by his feet through the mixture of urine and pine oil. Because his body had been so tightened, the new motion racked it. The MPs swung him around and around, the piss and solvent washing up into his face. The idea was to use him as a human mop. When the MPs felt they’d successfully pretended to soak up the liquid with his body, they uncuffed him and carried him back to his cell. He was not allowed a change of clothes for two days.
This is what Obama called patriotic.
