Men Who Stare At Goats – The True
Story Behind The Film
By Dick Allgire

11-8-9

It was some thirty years ago on the big screen that we watched Darth Vader kill a subordinate with sheer force of will. Displeased with the performance of Admiral Ozzel because he brought his ships out of hyperspace too soon, alerting the Rebels to their presence, Darth Vader held up his hand and pinched the air. Moviegoers will recall the hapless admiral choking for air and falling over dead. Darth Vader killed the admiral with a look, employing some unseen force of Mind.

It was pure science fiction. Or was it? At about this same time, a U.S. Army Special Forces soldier was felling goats in much the same manner. Now this story is coming to the big screen.

“The Men Who Stare At Goats” is a soon to be released major motion picture starring George Clooney, Jeff Bridges, and Ewan McGregor. It is a lighthearted look at how the U.S. Army explored paranormal powers, “new age” parapsychology and psychic functioning in the late 1970’s and early 80s. The film portrays all of this in a whimsical and comical tone, but the real story is deadly serious.

The character portrayed by George Clooney is based on retired Special Forces Intel First Sergeant Glenn Wheaton. In real life Wheaton is a character far too complex to portray in a two-hour movie. In his Army career Wheaton was a stone cold killer, a Green Beret door-knocker as well as a remote viewer, a type of psychic spy who could readily displace his awareness to remote locations across space and time to bring back actual intelligence grade data using only his mind. He’s also a boy from the Louisiana Bayou, a southern gentleman, a kind and caring teacher.

The title of the upcoming movie, “The Men Who Stare at Goats” is based on an incident in which a Green Beret instructor killed a goat by staring at it. Glenn Wheaton witnessed the event and recounted it to author Jon Ronson, who wrote about it in his book “The Crazy Rulers of the World.” Glenn Wheaton sat down and talked about the goat incident recently during an interview for a documentary planned for release in conjunction with the movie “The Men Who Stare at Goats.” His interview will also be included in the “Extras” in the home DVD version of the movie.

At the Special Warfare Center and School at Ft. Bragg, North Carolina they had what the Green Berets called “The Goat Lab.” …

“I was there the day the first goat died,” recalls Glenn Wheaton. …

Glenn Wheaton witnessed the incredible feat. The instructor never touched the goat. “Michael focused on the goat pretty intensely,” he says. “It started to….

Wheaton does not talk about whether this technique was ever employed against humans, but he says Green Berets did study so called “paranormal powers” as part of a program called Project Jedi.

“I Hope His Kidneys Fail” — Wanda Sykes Wishing Evil on Rush Limbaugh — President Obama Laughs

From: RightPundits

Comedienne and actress Wanda Sykes brought down the house at the White House Correspondents dinner with a joke about Rush Limbaugh; Sykes said that she hoped Limbaugh’s “kidney’s fail”, in response to the talk show hosts comments that he hopes the Obama administration fails.

This is interesting folks, the left wing in this country is calling for CBS golf analyst David Feherty to be fired over his comments from two days ago where he stated that if given the chance U.S. soldiers would shoot Nancy Pelosi over Osama Bin Laden. But at the same time, it is seemingly okay for Wanda Sykes, to say that she “hopes his kidney’s fail”, when talking about Rush Limbaugh. …

Obama’s response to Sykes kidney failure joke; he yucked it up with the rest of the liberals in the room.

Mellencamps Cursed for Questioning the War

From: Vanity Fair

If Mellencamp has become inured to the chilly treatment that he sometimes gets from the music industry, he and his family were caught off guard by the undercurrent of hostility that rolled their way in Bloomington when he began to voice his anti-war feelings in 2003. Not long before the official start of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Mellencamp wrote new lyrics for “Baltimore to Washington,” Woody Guthrie’s version of a traditional tune first popularized by the Carter family, and renamed it “To Washington.” Using pretty much the same plainspoken language found on Freedom’s Road, he sang about the tainted 2000 election and the roll-up to the war, including this verse:

And he wants to fight with many
And he says it’s not for oil
He sent out the National Guard
To police the world
From Baghdad to Washington.

The song, which was included on Mellencamp’s May 2003 album of reworked blues and folk standards, Trouble No More, made news even before it was released. In the fall Mellencamp and his wife, the supermodel and photographer Elaine Irwin-Mellencamp, landed in the headlines again when they posted an open letter on his Web site, mellencamp.com, titled, in part, “It’s Time to Take Back Our Country.” The Mellencamps called for an end to what they described as the “political ‘hijacking’ of Iraq” and the chilling effect on free speech that had crept into the national discourse. Though they were spared the kind of public thrashing that the Dixie Chicks got that March when lead singer Natalie Maines told a London concert audience that she was “ashamed the president of the United States” is from Texas, the Mellencamp family’s politics did not go unnoticed on their home turf. Elaine Irwin-Mellencamp recalls the time that she, her husband, and their sons, Hud, 12, and Speck, 11, were driving in town when a local radio station played “To Washington” and invited listeners to comment, prompting one man to call up and say, “I don’t know who I hate worse, John Mellencamp or Saddam Hussein.” Mostly, the criticism was implied in the cold stares and whispers of some of the locals whom the Mellencamps encountered on a regular basis.

A few times, the rocker’s clan found themselves on the wrong end of some drive-by mudslinging. Because their 60-acre compound, with its stucco mansion, sits on the serene Lake Monroe, Irwin-Mellencamp says a number of boaters floated near their banks and shouted obscenity-laced tirades at the house. Irwin-Mellencamp won’t forget the time that a boat carrying a profanity-spewing….

Saudi Woman Gets Death Penalty for Witchcraft

From: WorldNetDaily

A Saudi Arabian court’s decision to execute a woman for witchcraft has drawn the protest of international human rights groups.

The trial and conviction of Fawza Falih is a “miscarriage of justice,” said Human Rights Watch in an appeal to King Abdullah, the BBC reported.

Among Falih’s accusers is a man who alleged she made him impotent.

FOX News’ Brit Hume: “God Forbid” You Watch Another Network

“So if you’re in South Carolina tonight and you’re interested in knowing how all this is going, well you could watch us or maybe watch some other program, God forbid. Or you could do what some other South Carolinians are able to do, and Caroline Shively is in Columbia, South Carolina, the state capitol, to tell us about that.

Hi, Caroline.”

Are Angry Americans Cursing Indian Call Center Workers?

“You are making nice money. But the trade-off is also big,” said Vats, who spent nearly two years at an IBM Corp. call center handling customer calls from the United States.

Call centers and other outsourced businesses — such as software writing, medical transcription and back-office tasks — employ more than 1.6 million people in India, mostly in their 20s and 30s. But at this young age, they face sleep disorders, heart disease, depression and family discord, according to doctors and several industry surveys. …

Most call center jobs involve responding to phone calls through the night from customers in the United States and Europe, some of whom can be angry and rude. It’s monotonous and there is little meaningful personal interaction among co-workers.

“There are times when the stress is so overwhelming that they fail to cope with it,” said Archana Bisht, who started a counseling company — 1to1help.net — in Bangalore six years ago. …

About 32% of respondents complained of sleep disorders, 25% had digestive troubles and 20% reported eyesight problems, according to the survey, which covered 1,749 employees.
