Some truly off-the-wall comments on a story on the Haitian relief operations I wrote last week suggest that Haiti was not hit by an earthquake but some sort of a planned attack by the United States.
I have been pondering what kind of weapon could mimic a magnitude 7.0 earthquake, when the answer popped into my e-mail on Thursday. The Air Force, Navy, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and University of Alaska funded High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) projects to use high-powered radio transmitters located near Gakona, Alaska, to conduct ionospheric research.
HAARP conspiracy theorists have conjectured since the mid-1990s that the Defense Department plans to use modified global weather to impair the mental health of large populations and knock out worldwide communications systems.
Now this just in: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has suggested the United States used HAARP to cause the Haiti earthquakes.
Somehow, according to comments I have received says the Defense Information Systems Agency - yes, that's DISA - is enmeshed in this conspiracy. DISA, I'm told, has no plans for world domination, which is refreshing to know.
