Army Jedi's Mind-Tricking Congressmen for Money

Rolling Stone Mag. must be having some kind of a paranoid skitz moment.

Or ... perhaps they've been so spaced out for so many years that they have actually started to believe in ... the movies ... Santa Clause ... the Easter Bunny ... global warming?

The Burn Pit
Rolling Stone: LTC Holmes' battle with the US Army.
Is the Army using Jedi Mind Tricks to bolster their budget?

I’ll be honest, this whole story brings me more mirth that anything else. In case you haven’t seen it, Rolling Stone did a big story on “Psy Ops” teams being used against visiting Congressional Delegations, and portrays Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes as the officer-in-charge cum whistle-blower that exposed this illegal venture:
The U.S. Army illegally ordered a team of soldiers specializing in "psychological operations" to manipulate visiting American senators into providing more troops and funding for the war, Rolling Stone has learned – and when an officer tried to stop the operation, he was railroaded by military investigators.

The orders came from the command of Lt. Gen. William Caldwell, a three-star general in charge of training Afghan troops – the linchpin of U.S. strategy in the war. Over a four-month period last year, a military cell devoted to what is known as "information operations" at Camp Eggers in Kabul was repeatedly pressured to target visiting senators and other VIPs who met with Caldwell. When the unit resisted the order, arguing that it violated U.S. laws prohibiting the use of propaganda against American citizens, it was subjected to a campaign of retaliation.

"My job in psy-ops is to play with people’s heads, to get the enemy to behave the way we want them to behave," says Lt. Colonel Michael Holmes, the leader of the IO unit, who received an official reprimand after bucking orders. "I’m prohibited from doing that to our own people. When you ask me to try to use these skills on senators and congressman, you’re crossing a line."

.... Apparently PsyOps teams are now practitioners of Jedi Mind Tricks, telling Senators “These aren’t the programs you wish to cut”....

I can assure you ... no self-respecting Jedi would mind-trick US senators .... now they might enjoy working over Rolling Stone reporters ... as in this case.
