Is our military using mind control on US senators and other government officials? According to a new article in Rolling Stone…yes. Army Lt. General William Caldwell instructed his “psychological operations” team – soldiers who are trained in using propaganda to win a hearts and minds struggle in Afghanistan – to use their training to manipulate high-profile visitors to Afghanistan like Senators John McCain and Joe Lieberman – not sure why they would need to “brains wash” those guys – and also people like Admiral Mike Mullen of the Joint Chiefs of Staff – and a number of foreign ministers.
The point was to use tactics on the men that would encourage them to support additional troops and funding for the Afghanistan war – a war that has steadily been decreasing in popularity. Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes expressed his reservations about the psy-ops operation on US leaders to a superior officer – and was later reprimanded on trumped up charges by the Chief of Staff to Lt. Gen. Caldwell – he was basically silenced and punished for speaking out against the operation. Not only is this a waste of military resources it’s against federal law.
Psy-ops are operations are illegal on US citizens. Still judging by how the Afghanistan War is still raging – and will likely continue to be fought for another 4 years – it looks like the Army was successful in wining the hearts and minds of US lawmakers…whether they did it honestly – or through manipulation.
