Pentagon Tests Raygun On Mock Anti–War Protesters

Pain compliance device used to disperse crowd


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 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 primary purpose of this blog is to syndicate information that is largely excluded from, or spun by, the increasingly consolidated corporate media.


I believe the “War on Terror” is a synthetic construct. It is part of a long term agenda of the political/corporate elites to aggressively consolidate global control. “War on Drugs” deja-vu.


I support a new criminal investigation into the events of 9/11. The previous investigation avoided hundreds of known pieces of evidence contradicting the government’s account – for example, the fact that the head of Pakistani intelligence funded the alleged lead hijacker, and the fact that World Trade Center Building 7 collapsed at 5.20 pm in the exact manner of a controlled demolition.
