The United States Does Not Engage in Psychological Operations against CITIZENS!
Field Manual (FM) 3-05.30 is the keystone publication for Psychological
Operations (PSYOP) principles. It is directly linked to, and must be used with,
the doctrinal principles found in FM 3-0, Operations; FM 3-13, Information
Operations: Doctrine, Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures; FM 100-25, Doctrine
for Army Special Operations Forces; and Joint Publication (JP) 3-53, Doctrine for
Joint Psychological Operations. It illustrates how PSYOP forces function for the
supported commander and impact on the operating environment. This manual
explains PSYOP fundamentals, unit functions and missions, command and
control (C2) capabilities, and task organization. It also describes the PSYOP
planning procedures, the employment of forces, and the intelligence and logistics
support operations for PSYOP. FM 3-05.30 provides the authoritative foundation
for PSYOP doctrine, training, leader development, organizational design,
materiel acquisition, and Soldier systems. It is not intended exclusively for the
PSYOP community; rather, it is intended to a large degree for supported
commanders, regardless of Service, at all levels and their operations officers who
will be supported by, and supervise, PSYOP personnel. PSYOP commanders and
trainers at all levels should use this manual with Army mission training plans to
develop and conduct their training.
This manual is unclassified to ensure its Armywide dissemination and the
integration of PSYOP into the Army’s system. As the proponent for PSYOP
doctrine and training, the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare
Center and School (USAJFKSWCS) published an additional FM, which is
FM 3-05.301, Psychological Operations Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures, to
disseminate the specific tactics, techniques, and procedures necessary to plan and
conduct PSYOP. It will also publish FM 3-05.302, Tactical Psychological
Operations Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures, Army Training and Evaluation
Programs (ARTEPs) for specific unit-level training, and the Soldier training
publication (STP) for the 37F military occupational specialty (MOS). The
provisions of FM 3-05.30 are subject to the international agreements listed in the
Bibliography. There are numerous terms, acronyms, and abbreviations found
within this manual. Users should refer to the Glossary for their meaning or
The proponent of this publication is USAJFKSWCS. Submit comments and

Electromagnetic Weapons Timelinehttp://setyoufree.lefora.com/2010/03/19/synthetic-telepathy-and-the-early-mind-wars/
· Electromagnetic (EM) weapons are of recent invention. They utilize the various frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum to disable or kill the target. Psychotronic weapons are those EM weapons that interact with the nervous system of the target. These weapons usually operate in the very low (100 to 1,000 Hz) or extremely low (greater than zero but less than 100 Hz) frequency ranges.
· 1934 "A method for Remote Control of Electrical Stimulation of the Nervous System", a monograph by Drs. E. L. Chaffee and R. U. Light.
· 1934 Experiments in Distant Influence, book by Soviet Professor Leonid L. Vasiliev. Vasiliev also wrote an article, "Critical Evaluation of the Hypogenic Method" concerning the work of Dr. I. F. Tomashevsky on experiments in remote control of the brain.
· 1945 After World War II, the Allies discovered the Japanese had been developing a "death ray" utilizing very short radio waves focused into a high power beam. Tests were done on animals.

"Technology will make available to leaders of major nations a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare..."
He also wrote "Accurately timed, artificially excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the Earth ... one could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of a very large population in selected regions over an extended period."
(Cited in Baker's "ELF Psychotronic Tyranny" paper.)

Eldon Byrd, Naval Surface Weapons Center, Silver Spring MD. (From "Electromagnetic Pollution" by Kim Besly, p12.)
· 1982 Electromagnetic weapons for law enforcement use in Great Britain: Charles Bovill of the now defunct British firm, Allen International, developed a 10-30 Hz strobe light that can produce seizures, giddiness, nausea, and fainting. Addition of sound pulses in the 4.0 - 7.5 Hz range increases effectiveness, as utilized in the Valkyrie, a "frequency" weapon advertised in British Defense Equipment Catalogue until 1983.
The squawk box or sound curdles uses two loudspeakers of 350-watt output to emit two slightly different frequencies that combine in the ear to produce a shrill shrieking noise. The U.S. National Science Foundation report says there is "severe risk of permanent impairment of hearing."
(From "Electropollution" by Kim Besley, citing the Manchester City Council Police Monitoring Unit document.)
· 1982 Air Force review of biotechnology: "Currently available data allow the projection that specially generated radio frequency radiation (RFR) fields may pose powerful and revolutionary antipersonnel military threats.
Electroshock therapy indicates the ability of induced electric current to completely interrupt mental functioning for short periods of time, to obtain cognition for longer periods and to restructure emotional response over prolonged intervals.
o "... impressed electromagnetic fields can be disruptive to purposeful behavior and may be capable of directing and/or interrogating such behavior. Further, the passage of approximately 100 milliamperes through the myocardium can lead to cardiac standstill and death, again pointing to a speed-of-light weapons effect.
o "A rapidly scanning RFR system could provide an effective stun or kill capability over a large area."

· 1993 February 28, beginning of 51 day siege on the Branch Davidians at Waco Texas, which ended in the death of more than 80 people.
Until this incident, the electromagnetic weapons had kept a very low profile. But in the documentary video, "Waco: The Big Lie Continues", footage from the British Broadcasting (BBC) shows at least three EM weapons used by U.S. government agents. First, the noise generators used against the Davidians. Second, a powerful strobe light, shown during a nighttime sequence.
And the third was the Russian psychoacoustics weapon, considered, but agents deny use of this weapon against the Waco people. FBI agents met with Dr. Igor Smirnov in Arlington VA to discuss the possibility of using the weapon against the Davidians.
