A New Threat to Society

Mark Lenzi being interviewed on 60 minutes

On September 1, 2019 the CBS news program 60 Minutes aired an episode about attacks on U.S. and Canadian diplomats in China. Mark Lenzi, 44, has been the most outspoken U.S. Diplomat who was evacuated from China after he and his family became seriously ill.

Lenzi was working as a Security Engineer for the U.S. State Department in Guangzhou, China when he and his family began hearing strange noises in their apartment, which consistently occurred in the same spot right before he and his wife went to bed.

Chronic sleeplessness and headaches that got progressively worse and lasted for days at a time impelled Lenzi to seek medical help. The painkillers and Ambien prescribed by the consulate doctors only masked the symptoms. Lenzi was most concerned with short-term memory loss and considered the possibility of an early onset of Alzheimer’s disease. His children suffered from unexplained reoccurring nosebleeds.

Mark Lenzi was one of many diplomats evacuated from the U.S. Consulate in China who experienced unexplained symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury. Lenzi’s neighbor, Catherine Werner, was one of the evacuees. Her mother and dogs also became ill while staying in her apartment in China.

Lenzi is now convinced he was assaulted with a microwave weapon. “There is no shadow of a doubt in my mind that this was a directed attack against my neighbor (Catherine Werner) and I. This was a directed standoff attack against my apartment.” Lenzi stated, “I believe it’s RF, radio frequency energy, in the microwave range.”

Lenzi also expressed that the weapon must have been in the frequency range of 1-3 Gigahertz.

The National Security Agency (NSA) describes such a weapon as a “high-powered microwave system weapon that may have the ability to weaken, intimidate, or kill an enemy over time without leaving evidence. This weapon is designed to bathe a target’s living quarters in microwaves.” The NSA disclosed this in a worker’s compensation case filed by former NSA employee Mike Beck.

As of this writing, Mark Lenzi is a patient at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York City. His treating neurologist said Lenzi’s case is very unusual, one she hasn’t seen before.

Lenzi experiences headaches, memory loss, sleep difficulties, emotionality, and irritability. He was prescribed glasses to combat a persistent sensitivity to light.

Researchers into Lenzi’s case have proposed a theory whereby microwaves were potentially beamed at the diplomats from a nearby building or a passing van.

A History of Directed Energy Weapons

Weapons such as these are not the stuff of science fiction. Former Nazi Germany and Soviet Union scientists have been experimenting and developing microwave and psychotronic weapons as far back as the 1930s.

In Nazi Germany (1933 – 1945) Nazi scientists investigated X-ray beam weapons, amongst others. They built an electron accelerator called Rheotron to generate hard X-ray beams for the The German Ministry of Aviation. The intent was to pre-ionize ignition in aircraft engines and hence serve as directed energy weapons which would bring enemy planes down into the reach of anti-aircraft fire. (1)

Dr. Robert Becker, Dr. Cyril Smith and Paul Brodeur (2) wrote books in the 1970s and 1980s about the history of EMR (electro-magnetic resonance) technology development and all three presented evidence of athermal (processes that involve neither heat nor a change in temperature) biological effects from EMR. In addition they cited supporting Russian literature going back to the 1930s.

Directed Energy Devices in the Courts

The problem we face today is an age old one: Electronic Directed Energy Devices can and do fall into the wrong hands. In Sedgwick County, Kansas, a business deal gone wrong proved to be just such a case. The Defendant, businessman Jeremiah Redford, threatened Plaintiff James Walbert, a technical professional with “jolts of radiation.” Walbert began feeling “electric shock sensations, hearing electronically generated tones, and getting popping and ringing sounds in his ears.”

The 18th Judicial District Court of Kansas ruled in Walbert’s favor and issued a first-of-it’s-kind order of protection, banning Redford from using electronic means to further harass Walbert.

Commercialized Military Weapons

Raytheon Active Denial System

The U.S. Military, always in a race to develop the most scientifically and technologically advanced weapons, contracted the Raytheon Corporation to create the Active Denial System.

Active Denial is an electronic directed energy weapon that uses 95 Gigahertz millimeter wave beams from distances up to 800 feet. An attack with this weapon on a human feels like the skin has been set on fire, but leaves no visible marks and no evidence of an assault.

What’s truly troubling is that Raytheon commercialized the Active Denial System for sale to the private sector as “Silent Guardian.” In other words, if you can afford it, you can purchase this weapon and use it as you wish.

LRAD Crowd Control Sonic Weapon

Another example of an Electronic Weapon is the LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device), classified as a sonic weapon. The LRAD directs sound at a distance of up to 5,500 meters, functions through walls and broadcasts at 360 degrees. It can be narrowcasted and used to target specific individuals and according to one report, “can direct a high-pitched, piercing tone with a tight beam…” Neither the LRAD operator or others in the immediate area are affected.

The LRAD website states that “advanced driver and waveguide technologies ensure every voice and warning siren broadcast cuts through crowd, engine and background noise, and is clearly heard and understood even inside buildings and vehicles.” The LRAD operator can escalate matters. The LRAD website goes on to explain, “if directions/instructions are not taken, the operator employs the LRAD warning tone.” This is a piercing, audibly painful sonic attack.

Laws on the Books

Three states currently have laws addressing the ownership and usage of directed energy devices: Maine, Massachusetts and Michigan. The ACLU is currently aware of this burgeoning issue and has issued a one page fact sheet, found here. We are hopeful that investigation into these human rights abuses will continue and more states will pass laws banning the ownership and use of directed energy weapons.

Dr. Cyril Smith was born in London in 1930. He worked on radar research and the detection and intensification of medical X-ray images before he joined Salford University in 1964 where he taught and did research in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering until his retirement in 1989. From 1973, co-operation with the late Professor Herbert Fröhlich, FRS led to his studies of the interaction of coherent electromagnetic fields with living systems and biological materials, and coherence effects in water. This work continues. He has in all probability seen and tested more electromagnetically hypersensitive patients than anyone else in the world. Source: Positive Health Online

Paul Brodeur (born May 16, 1931) is an investigative science writer and author, whose writings have appeared in The New Yorker, where he began as a staff writer in 1958. For nearly two decades he researched and wrote about the health hazards of asbestos. He has also written about the depletion of the ozone layer, microwave radiation and electromagnetic fields from power lines. Source: Wikipedia



  • ”The condition is characterized by a broad range of unexplained symptoms that include migraines, fatigue, vertigo, anxiety, dizziness, memory lapses and cognitive impairment. Some of those affected have said that they felt as though they were hit by a blast wave or beam of energy. In some cases, the symptoms were intermittent; in others, they persisted and required long-term care”
