JNN 07 April 2011 : The former Minnesota governor has accused the United States of deploying its ‘tactical weapon,’ the HAARP, which ’caused’ the recent massive temblor and the ensuing tsunami in Japan.
“The US’s HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) weapon system can cause natural disasters, including earthquakes and tsunamis like the one that happened in Japan,” James George Janos, better known as Jesse Ventura told CNN’s Piers Morgan in a recent interview.
The Slovak-American politician, who served as the 38th governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003, noted that the disaster in Japan could be explained through conspiracy theories.
According to the theories, HAARP could be used as a directed-energy weapon, a weather control system, an earthquake-yielding device and/or for mind control.
American Conspiracies is a book Ventura wrote in 2010 which discusses conspiracy theories related to several notable events in United States history.
The project HAARP is jointly funded by US Air Force, Navy and University of Alaska.
It is said that the project is similar to numerous existing ionospheric heaters around the world, and has a large suite of diagnostic instruments that facilitate its use to increase scientific understanding of the ionosphere’s dynamics.
Many have expressed concerns over the system’s application as a weapon. The HAARP program may also be behind the 7.8 earthquake in China in 2008 and last year’s quake devastation in Haiti.
