Of chief interest is . the-question of a multi-disciplinary medical/behavioral threat depicted against SIGINT site/communications personnel. Both are familiar with the Threat and medical studies to some extent, and believe as I-d9 that these some kinds of,questions need to be asked periodically about suitable environments. All of us are familiar with the DIA Controlled Offensive Behavior Study of the Army Surgeon General Medical Intelligence Office dated 1972. Highlighted in this work were various efforts at Soviet behavioral control involving' drugs, physical abuse, electrical methods, and parapsychological and' psychological methods of behavioral control or personality destruction. In-his study of KGB training and the mentality of the KGB officer, Dr. 0 found a considerably and unexpected emphasis on parapsychology. (During his 1975 interrogation of experiments aimed at developing paranordal abilities.) Khokbiov in )is?BBC film appearance about Georgi Markov worried about increased KGB and Bloc Secret Services' aggressiveness against the West. Greatly increased Soviet Bloc intelligence activity has been noted in the U.S. particularly since 1975. Soviet interactions with the Jonestown group left many questions related to the range, diversity, and aggressiveness of Bloc intelligence to destabilize and disorient Western Society and specific targets. Recent studies referred to by Dr. W. Ross Adey of the Veterans Administration Hospital in Loma Linda California, call into question again, the effect of low levels of specific kinds of microwave radiation. Frequencies. used by the military radars have been shown to cause changes to brain chemistry. (It-causes the release of a large amount of calcium ions which affects brain signal transmissions.) As Dre has a number of sites under his cognisance, he decided, in view of the considerations, that it might be an opportune moment to take another look. ? ? Mr. I I and Mre and in the memorandum.
