"Red Mercury and The Strange Case of Delmart Vreeland"
by J. R. Nyquist
If you look too deeply into the abyss, the abyss will look into you.
Last week this column discussed the testimony of a self-described U.S. Naval intelligence officer who was recently granted asylum by Canada. According to documents and testimony entered into evidence during his trial, Delmart Edward Vreeland predicted a major terrorist strike against the World Trade Center, naming Osama bin Laden as the perpetrator a full month before the Sept. 11 attacks. Vreeland also told journalists last October that the death of a Canadian Embassy official in Moscow, Marc Bastien, was not due to natural causes as initially reported in the Canadian press. Adding weight to Vreelands credibility, on Jan. 21, 2002, the Toronto Star reported the findings of the Quebec coroner that Bastien died after drinking a mixture of alcohol and clopazine.
Last week I interviewed Vreeland, who claims to possess official Russian documents stolen from Moscow that link the Kremlin to the Sept. 11 terrorist assault and to a planned Iraqi nuclear attack against U.S. cities using Russian red mercury fusion devices. After demonstrating an uncanny knowledge of events in Moscow and elsewhere, I felt that Vreelands story warranted closer scrutiny. Is he a deranged kook seeking publicity? Is red mercury a hoax?
Last Saturday I spoke with Sam Cohen, a U.S. nuclear weapons expert credited with inventing the neutron bomb. I asked Cohen how he would answer critics who ridicule the idea of red mercury fusion. According to Cohen, These people dont understand the laws of physics. He further stated that red mercury is a compound with tremendous energy density. In all likelihood, Russia has successfully fabricated this compound using ultra high pressure technology, Cohen explained. You knock all these electrons out so its not the same atom. It pulls a lot more energy per gram than any other explosive that Ive ever heard of.
Its explosive power is so great that red mercury can trigger a fusion reaction. The Atomic Energy Commission denies red mercury, Cohen said, but they lie through their teeth. And they have to. I asked Cohen if the secret of red mercury could be learned from captured samples. Im just guessing here, he replied, but I think its very difficult to tell [how it was made] from examining the substance itself. (In other words, Russia might export red mercury to terrorist states or groups without fear of giving away the secret of its manufacture.)
I asked Cohen about Vreelands statement that a two-megaton device could be made using red mercury technology. Cohen said, The answer is its possible, but not advisable. Expressing doubts about the effectiveness of U.S. sensors set up to detect nuclear weapons smuggled by terrorists, Cohen asked why an enemy power couldnt simply slip a good old-fashioned fission bomb into the U.S.? If you wanted to do damage, a dirty bomb is better, he explained. Using red mercury is best accomplished at low yields. Although you could turn it into a [high yield] multiple stage device.
I asked Cohen how small a two-megaton multi-stage red mercury device might be. Cohen replied that a red mercury fusion bomb could be more miniaturized than fusion/fission nuclear warheads. It is void of fissile material. Due to explosive power per gram it has the potential to be very much lighter. He added that, Weve produced [atomic] bombs from 50,000 pounds to 50 pounds.
I asked Cohen if a country other than Russia might have red mercury technology. Oh yes, he responded, adding, I think Iraq did get red mercury. According to Cohens contacts in the nuclear weapons community, U.N. inspectors have found evidence of red mercury transactions between Iraq and Russia.
Those who want to dismiss Cohens testimony do so at their own peril. In his Dec. 27 1993 National Review article on red mercury, Cohen stated: In a pure-fusion weapon the weight of the nuclear material required may be as low as a thousandth of that required in a fission weapon. Cohen also stated that red mercury warheads could be clandestinely tested underground.
None of this absolutely confirms the testimony of Delmart Edward Vreeland regarding a Russian-Iraqi connection to Sept. 11 and future red mercury terrorism against U.S. cities. Cohens expert opinion merely tells us that Vreelands claims are not altogether outlandish. Setting aside the question of red mercury, the real test of Vreelands credibility will come in the weeks and months ahead. Adding to the mystery surrounding this story, I received a phone call last week from an official of a national political party (U.S.) involved in the Vreeland case. The official in question had personally met Vreeland and said there was a nasty bullet wound on the side of Vreelands face, which occurred when the Russian mafia put a gun in Vreelands mouth and pulled the trigger. This official also confirmed that Vreelands military record had been altered and falsified and that Vreelands case was rated as a secret intelligence matter in Washington.
Two things, however, are disturbing about the Vreeland case. In terms of media coverage, citizen-reporter Michael C. Ruppert has emerged to become Vreelands leading advocate. But the sinister use to which Ruppert puts Vreelands testimony must be called into question. While Vreeland clearly indicated to me that Sept. 11 was a Russian-supported Iraqi-Al Qaeda operation, Rupperts articles argue that Sept. 11 was a U.S. or CIA operation. In addition, Ruppert is a person who has been warmly embraced by leading figures in Moscow, where he has been invited to speak and fraternize. Snuggling up to Vreeland, allegedly dictating Vreelands choice of legal representation in the United States, Ruppert willingly ignores the fact that Vreelands information points to Kremlin foreknowledge and connivance in the events of Sept. 11 not to U.S. connivance.
There is a second point regarding Vreelands story that must not be set aside. It has to do with the possible use of mind control drugs in relation to this case. Vreeland claims that while spying in Moscow, he teamed up with Canadian Embassy official Marc Bastien, who was found dead on Dec. 12, 2000, six days after Vreeland was arrested in Canada. According to Canadian officials, the drug found in Bastiens body at the time of death was clopazine mixed with alcohol. Clopazine is an anti-psychotic chemical that can be used to remedy drug-induced schizophrenia. Those familiar with Russias security services know that psychotropic drugs have been used against key witnesses to induce mental illness, confusion, illogical thinking and memory loss. In April 1953 CIA director Allen W. Dulles told his colleagues that Russia had developed brain perversion techniques, some of which are so subtle and so abhorrent to our way of life that we have recoiled from facing up to them.
Did Bastien and Vreeland successfully penetrate Kremlin security and steal classified Russian documents? Were they subsequently caught and drugged by the Russian security services in Moscow? Was the clopazine found in Bastiens body by the Quebec coroner part of a failed attempt by Canadian officials to reverse the effects of brain poisoning by an unknown Russian psychotropic agent? Furthermore, if Bastien was poisoned with a mind-altering drug (to induce schizophrenia), was Vreeland similarly poisoned in the first week of December 2000?
Given that a Moscow-friendly muckraker like Mike Ruppert has snuggled up to Vreeland, we should not be surprised if Vreelands secrets are twisted to signify the opposite of what they in fact indicate. We should also fear for Vreelands safety and his sanity given the known methods of the Russian security services and associated mafia organizations. I have already learned of more than one attempt on Vreelands life. Now that his name has appeared in the newspapers, now that a political organization in the U.S. is prepared to take up his cause, wouldnt it be logical to discredit him via drug-induced schizophrenia?
According to an article http://www.thefinalphase.com/DouglassBehavior.htm by national security expert Joseph D. Douglass, Jr., with the title Influencing Behavior and Mental Processes in Covert Operations, Russia has freely used mind control drugs against Western targets in the past. Douglass says that the one-time Chief of Staff to the Czech Minister of Defense, defector Jan Sejna, knew of over a dozen families of mind control drugs that were actually being used against diplomats, banking and business executives, religious leaders, politicians, political leaders, military units, academicians, and even Presidents and Prime Ministers."
Sejna said that mind-altering drugs were used against the clergy in communist Czechoslovakia during the 1960s. After two years, noted Sejna, there were no more reactionary clerics in Czechoslovakia. By inducing suicide, insanity or collaboration (i.e., with friendship drugs) the anti-communist clergy ceased to make trouble for the regime. In this context, Douglass wrote of pills used to drive the target insane, and that is exactly the sort of treatment the Russians might reserve for a cornered U.S. spy with vital information about Kremlin involvement in Sept. 11.
Where does that leave us with regard to the Vreeland case?
It leaves us in the wilderness of mirrors. In this wilderness, facts can be spun in a variety of ways. My research indicates that Americas enemies are plotting her downfall, and they are quite capable and serious in their endeavor. Whatever the truth about Delmart Edward Vreeland, his story suggests that a great game is being played in secret and he is the victim of this game.

Let us not do the same mistake as NASA's or those denying the possibility of 911 as when it seemed Vreeland had predicted it. There are many leads, for sure, but it seems that the physics do allow the miniaturisation of explosives used to cause fusion.
What is interesting is that we have not looked at such technology nor sought to develop more powerful explosives. High tech luxury electronic weaponry won't cut it in a future war. Bismarkian jurisdiction over warfare will.
Cold fusion hoax vs. Red Mercury scare. I take the latter.
It didn't take too long for him to show his ignorance of nuclear physics. This is an urban legend.
You knock all these electrons out so its not the same atom.
It's easy to see he doesn't understand basic nuclear physics. This sets off the alarm bells. At the very least he wouldn't understand if this Red Mercury works or not. He doesn't have a clue.
You need not confuse nuclear physics from chemestry. Red Mecury is a chemical agent, an explosive to cause high temperatures needed for fusion. Knocking electrons out not only increase the physical density of a compound (though the nuclear density remains the same), but morever it increases the energy release once external electrons fall back to their designed stable orbits that were emptied in the fabrication process.
That to me is conclusive of how modern conventional explosives could be created electronicaly.
Red mercury is not nuclear, it is chemical conventional explosive manufactured artificially.
