Air Force chief: Test weapons on testy U.S. mobs
POSTED: 7:56 p.m. EDT, September 12, 2006
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.
The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne.
"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."

Who would have thought the day would come when a leading U.S. senator, while seeking advice on combating terrorism, would travel deep into Libya's desert to huddle with Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi in his tent?
By golly, Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Republican, has just returned to say he's witnessed a remarkable transformation of Libya and its leader, "where they have moved from being the world's leading terrorist state in very heavy competition."
He says he embarked on a several-hour plane flight from Tripoli into the "middle of the desert, met with him in his tent, and had a discussion with him looking for some guidance as to how a major world terrorist could rehabilitate, pay compensation, as to whether there could be any insight as to what we might do with North Korea and Iran today."
Regrettably, he said, Col. Gadhafi couldn't offer a definitive solution, "but the rehabilitation of Libya and Gadhafi showed that there is some hope to turn major terrorists into a rehabilitated situation."
