Army Deploys Psy-Ops on U.S. Senators

This Rolling Stone article is causing quite a stir in Washington. 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. Mind control does happen in higher levels of the hierarchy. Here’s an excerpt:

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.”

mind control is a bad name. I'd call it mind manipulation… There must be some willingness or at least mislead feeble minded logic or self-assurance/deceit to do something evil at whoever's orders.
Is anyone "mind-control" susceptible? In my view some evil guy looking to make another person go berserk would actually look among unstable individuals that are prone to violence and then he'd feed the hate, provoke the subject or "mentor" the man to the point of going berserk.
I am aware of movement control video of a rat, and an angry at the press of a switch cat vid too… some doc even mentioned same anger at switch of a button technique was tested on humans. Only a monster could do this to people.
