Air Force Researching Mind Warfare

Posted by on November 4th, 2010

The human mind has no firewalls. Recently the 711th Human Performance Wing requested proposals examining “Advances in Bioscience for Airmen Performance” for advancing the deployment of extreme neuroscience and biotechnology warfare in the service of the Air Force.

But perhaps the oddest, and most disturbing, of the program’s many suggested directions is the one that notes: “Conversely, the chemical pathway area could include methods to degrade enemy performance and artificially overwhelm enemy cognitive capabilities.” That’s right: the Air Force wants a way to fry foes’ minds — or at least make ‘em a little dumber.

For any interested parties, the Air Force is warning the project “may require top secret clearance.”

But using it to create soldiers that can kill our enemies with the power of their minds, that’s totally worth it. In fact, they can take out a little more if it will help the cause. The cause of killing people with the use of mind powers.
