A declassified U.S. Government documentary history of the momentous 1953 coup in Iran, in which Central Intelligence Agency personnel participated, had been the object of widespread demand from historians and others for decades. In recent years, it finally seemed to be on the verge of publication.

But now its release has been postponed indefinitely. . . Read Complete Report


Having developed and utilized unmanned aerial systems (UAS, or drones) for surveillance, targeting and attack, the US military now finds itself in the position of having to defend against the same technology.

The US Army last week issued a new manual on Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System Techniques (ATP 3-01.81, April 13, 2017). . . Read Complete Report


Disclosing classified information to foreign government personnel is ordinarily forbidden, and may constitute espionage. But sometimes it is permitted, even to non-allies.

“National Disclosure Policy Committee (NDPC) policy prohibits the release of classified information [to] a foreign government without an explicit authorization, such as an Exception to United States (U.S.) National Disclosure Policy (ENDP), and an information sharing agreement,” explained VADM James D. Syring, director of the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency, in response to a congressional question last year. . . . Read Complete Report

Forty years ago today, a four-man crew of an Army Reserve helicopter was flying over Mansfield, Ohio, around 11:00 p.m. when they “encountered a near midair collision with an unidentified flying object,” according to the official report, signed and submitted by the crew after the incident.

A full explanation for this terrifying UFO close encounter has never been offered, and to this day, the helicopter-UFO incident remains one of the most credible — and terrifying — in the history of the subject. . . . Read Complete Report

WASHINGTON – Built to dominate the enemy in combat, the Army’s hulking Abrams tank is proving equally hard to beat in a budget battle.

Lawmakers from both parties have devoted nearly half a billion dollars in taxpayer money over the past two years to build improved versions of the 70-ton Abrams.

But senior Army officials have said repeatedly, “No thanks.” . . . Read Complete Report

Retro: Robot Wars – USA (+) Army of the Future: Russian combat Robots (Video)

Keep in mind these reports are from 2011 and 2010 respectably. Using all of the advances in Robotics we have reported on here at THEI for the time since these reports we can only imagine just how far the knowledge of building Combat Robots has progressed. The thing that concerns me is that  after the military perfects these killing machines in their undeclared wars in far off places; when the American people finally wake up – and they will wake-up someday – will the same robotic killers be turned on us? . . .

New Zealand architectural and interior design firm W2 has never designed a caravan before – and it shows. The Romotow fold-out luxury caravan is unlike anything we’ve come across before.

And that’s a deliberate distinction – W2 Director Stuart Winterbourn told Gizmag he’s never found caravans all that interesting: “To a lot of people, they’re not desirable … including us. Generally, you’re using it in summer, and it’s stinking hot, and you don’t really want to be inside a caravan. And if you don’t want to be inside, you’ve got maybe some sort of screen you can pull out, and a rickety chair and table … it’s not that nice. . . . Read Complete Report w/ slide show

Privacy advocates point to latest DC scandal as evidence of growing problem

The continuing turmoil surrounding David Petraeus’s sexual escapades with biographer Paula Broadwell has privacy-rights activists crying foul. Not over Petraeus’s affair, but over how seemingly easy it is for the FBI to gain access to multiple private email accounts without a warrant, and to do so for relatively insignificant reasons.

Current cyber-privacy laws are laughably outdated, as the ACLU notes. . . . Read Complete Report

FBI’s abuse of the surveillance state is the real scandal needing investigation

Tuesday 3 November 2012 09.46 EST

That the stars of America’s national security establishment are being devoured by out-of-control surveillance is a form of sweet justice

The Petraeus scandal is receiving intense media scrutiny obviously due to its salacious aspects, leaving one, as always, to fantasize about what a stellar press corps we would have if they devoted a tiny fraction of this energy to dissecting non-sex political scandals (this unintentionally amusing New York Times headline from this morning – “Concern Grows Over Top Military Officers’ Ethics” – illustrates that point: with all the crimes committed by the US military over the last decade and long before, it’s only adultery that causes “concern” over their “ethics”). Nonetheless, several of the emerging revelations are genuinely valuable, particularly those involving the conduct of the FBI and the reach of the US surveillance state. . . . Read Complete Report

UFO Sightings At Indo-China Border Leave Indian Army Astounded

from International Business Times

EXCERPT: Acclaimed Pune-based astrophysicist Jayant Narlikar says, “There is no evidence of UFOs being of extra-terrestrial origin. The implication of them being alien objects is fancy, not fact.”

Start of Article;

Indian Army troops guarding the Indo-China border have reported sightings of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. An Indo-Tibetan Border Police Force (ITBP) unit deployed in Thakung, near the Pangong Tso Lake, reported over 100 sightings of luminous objects between Aug. 1 and Oct. 15 this year.

The Indian Army, Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the Defence Research Development Organization (DRDO) and National Technical Research Organization (NTRO) have been unable to identify these Unidentified Luminous Objects or ULOs, dubbed thus for the glow they give off “at day and by night.” Reports say these yellow spheres rise up on the horizon from the Chinese side, gliding across the sky for three to four hours before disappearing. . . .
