Taken from a statement by
Harlan Girard, Managing Director
International Committee on Offensive Microwave Weapons
on the
“NIEHS Working Group Report”

National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences
Washington, D.C.
September 28, 1998

My name is Harlan Girard, and I am the Managing Director of the International Committee on Offensive Microwave Weapons, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I would like to comment in the broadest way possible on the Working Group Report, rather than specifics, because lurking behind the science of human health effects from exposure to power-line frequency electric and magnetic fields are powerful interests and government programs whose existence has never been publicly acknowledged. Yet they are always present, or re-presented, in debates concerning the science itself and the continued funding of science seeking answers to the questions you have addressed. And their interests are not your own.

In 1982, an obscure organization called the Congressional Clearinghouse on the Future published a study titled “Future Agenda”. The Congress is always focused on problems requiring immediate resolution. The obscure chairman of the Clearinghouse proposed to take a look into the future by polling all the subcommittees in the House of Representatives. He asked them to tell him what they believed would be the burning issues before their subcommittee ten years in the future.

In two places in that report, “Future Agenda”, the words ‘offensive microwave weapons’ are used, and in one place the words ‘offensive microwave weapons’ are linked with the words ‘and mind-control mechanisms.’ I have never seen the words ‘offensive microwave weapons’ used in any other government report. We’ve never had the public discussion of ‘offensive microwave weapons’ which should have occurred by 1992, but these weapons are out there and they are being used on human beings, both experimentally and operationally.

Because of my interest in the technology of ‘offensive microwave weapons’, I am frequently contacted by people who believe they are being assaulted (and mind-controlled) with microwave weapons by the United States Government. Since 1990 I have spent countless hours listening to these people and attempting to separate truth from delusion, to separate the credible cases of involuntary human experimentation from people who “wanna be” victims of government research.

In 1991, I had a long conversation about the problem of ‘mind-control mechanisms’ with W. Ross Adey. He counseled me to forget these victims because the Central Intelligence Agency would soon lose interest in electric and magnetic field effects and go onto something else. The outcome has been quite the opposite of what he expected, and in recent years the reports crossing my desk (and tying up my telephone) have accelerated greatly. Not only that, but new words are entering the vocabulary of the military and intelligence establishments: biological process control, cognitive warfare, synthetic telepathy, information operations, beta wave incapacitators and psycho-technologies.

Now I took the words ‘offensive microwave weapons’ as the name of my public interest advocacy group because the obscure Chairman of the Congressional Clearinghouse on the Future in 1982 is a very prominent man in 1998. His name is Albert Gore, Jr. (Vice President of the United States of America). So we know that at the highest level of government discussions have been held about ‘offensive microwave weapons’ and ‘mind-control mechanisms’.

My point is this: how can the United States Government endorse and fund and act on the health effects from exposure to electric and magnetic fields at the same time as it is weaponizing the biological effects and health effects of those very same fields? What interest does the United States have, particularly in health effects, when human beings are being involuntarily exposed to enormous amounts of radiation in a Manhattan-type project to unlock the secrets of the human mind and consciousness?

The biological and health effects of human exposure to electric and magnetic fields of every frequency are already well known to the military and intelligence establishments. They are being weaponized. I urge you to join me in asking that those Special Access Programs in which such involuntary human experimentation takes place be opened, for the health and well being of all mankind.

Microwave technology in cell phones

Cell phones have become the most widely used wireless communication device but most people do not know how it works. A cell phone is just like a two way radio, you can send as well as receive information wirelessly. There are several major components of a cell phone system including: a network processing center, cell towers and the cell phone itself.


The microwave is part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Communication within a cell network is made possible by the cell towers, the cell phone establishes a wireless connection using electromagnetic waves of the nearest cell tower creating a two way connection that allows you to send and receive information. The cell tower is connected to the cell network making it possible to communicate with any other phone in the world.  Additionally other discount cell phone accessories make sure of shortwave radio waves and microwaves, including bluetooth devices.

Therefore when you call another cell phone in the same network, the cell phone connects to the cell tower which in turn connects to the processing center of the network. The network connects to another cell tower which connects to the receiver’s cell phone. This happens in barely a second.
Microwaves are a type of electromagnetic waves just like ultraviolet radiation, radio waves, gamma rays and x-rays. There are many applications of microwaves including in communication, cooking and radar. The wavelength of a microwave ranges from one metre to one millimetre

How microwaves work in cell phones

Microwaves are used in cell phones to receive and send a text message, information, video clips as well as images. A cell phone receives microwave signals from the closest transmitter then sends a microwave signal back. The microwave radiations transmit a lot of information in a short time. The microwaves are generated by a small antenna meaning that the cell phone does not have to be big. Wi-Fi also uses microwaves.

Drawback of microwave technology in cell phones

Since cell phones are small, they cannot put out much power and they require a line of sight to the closest transmitter. This means that cell phone companies should have many transmitter towers to be able to serve many customers.

Danger of microwave technology in cell phones

Since the mobile phone is held right on the head, research has indicated that the doses of microwave radiation in cell phones can affect a user’s brain. Young people with growing brains are more vulnerable to this danger.  To reduce the effects of microwave radiation, cell phone users should not spend too long on the phone.

Here’s a video talking about this very subject:
