When journalist Curtis Waltman filed a Freedom of Information Act request with Washington State Fusion Center (which is partnered with Department of Homeland Security) to obtain information about Antifa and white supremacist groups, he got more than the information he was looking for – he also accidentally received a mysterious file on "psycho-electric weapons" with the label "EM effects on human body.zip." The file included methods of "remote mind control."
Creepy images like these were included:
So what gives?
Via the Daily Beast:
According to Muckrock, a nonprofit that publishes government information gathered through FOIA requests, the mind-control documents came from the Department of Homeland Security-linked agency in the form of a file called "EM effects on human body.zip." The file reportedly contained various diagrams detailing the horrors of "psycho-electronic weapon effects."
One diagram lists the various forms of torment supposedly made possible by using remote mind-control methods, from "forced memory blanking" and "sudden violent itching inside eyelids" to "wild flailing" followed by "rigor mortis" and a remotely induced "forced orgasm." It was not immediately clear how the documents wound up in the agency's response to a standard FOIA request, but there was reportedly no indication the "remote mind control" files stemmed from any government program.
And according to Popular Mechanics:
The federal government has absolutely experimented with mind control in a variety of methods, but the documents here do not appear to be official.
Waltman had no idea why these documents were included in his request and isn't sure why the government is holding them. The WSFC did not respond to requests for more information.
As fun as conspiracy theories are, Muckrock doesn't believe the images are "government material."
One seems to come from a person named "Supratik Saha," who is identified as a software engineer, the brain mapping slide has no sourcing, and the image of the body being assaulted by psychotronic weapons is sourced from raven1.net, who apparently didn't renew their domain.
Muckrock put out a call to WSFC but hasn't yet heard back from them.
