The Pentagon proudly displayed what it has in store for anti-war protesters last night during a CBS 60 minutes feature which depicted the use of the army's "Active Denial System" against peace demonstrators at Moody Air Force Base in Georgia.
The Active Denial System is a giant raygun that directs a sizzling hot beam at its target, causing instant pain and forcing the subject(s) to disperse.
Similar to the Taser, the machine acts as a form of pain compliance or torture. It was designed in secret for 10 years before being unveiled in 2001.
The CBS clip alarmingly shows mock American peace protesters being targeted by the device.
The CBS report fails to mention the fact that the device was already mobilized and place on stand-by to combat protesters during the 2004 National Republican Convention in New York City, as is documented in Alex Jones' film Martial Law 9/11: Rise of the Police State.
As Raw Story highlights, "Failure to deploy the weapon as planned (In Iraq) has raised suspicions that the real intention is to use it for domestic crowd control."
"In 2006, Air Force Secretary Michael Wynne was quoted as saying that the device should be used first on Americans, because "if we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation. ... If I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."
A smaller scale version of the device named "Silent Guardian" is also being developed by Raytheon for use in "law enforcement, checkpoint security, facility protection, force protection and peacekeeping missions."
The use of mock role players in martial law training exercises is nothing new, the precedent stretches back at least ten years.
Documentarian and radio talk show host Alex Jones has has attended numerous military urban warfare training drills across the U.S. where role players were used to simulate arresting American citizens, confiscating their weapons, and taking them to internment camps. Actors scream out that they have constitutional rights as they are handcuffed and hauled off to the detainment facility.
Legislation has already been passed that paves the way for the U.S. military to engage American citizens on home soil.
The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 allows the President to declare a "public emergency" and station troops anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities, in order to "suppress public disorder."
Police state expert Frank Morales traced the ancestry of the bill back to "Operation Garden Plot" and the United States Civil Disturbance Plan 55-2, now de-classified programs dating back to the 80's which outlined how the military would be involved in suppressing domestic civil disobedience in America. The groups listed as potential non-conformist troublemakers included tax protesters, militia groups, religious cults, and various other general anti-government dissenters.
"It's very clear that they anticipated reaction to the agenda that they had projected for themselves," said Morales, "they were obviously aware of what they were gonna attempt to do in terms of their world domination project....they estimated quite correctly that there would be reaction on the part of the American people so it's logical in a sense that they would have been moving kind of in tandem with their global maneuvers to oppress us at home," stated Morales in response to the passage of the bill.
Morales added that the authorities know full well that a widespread awakening is taking place and so the Defense Authorization Act was essentially part of a move to try and "tool up" for the reaction that will take place after their next lunge to destroy what's left of American liberty.
The "Active Denial System" may be one such tool that jackbooted martial law thugs are salivating about using on the American people once the next crisis unfolds.
