Doing a search, I see the LaRouche wackoes have already grabbed onto that eighties SDI thing and now it's real distorted, too much weird crap along with everything else. Filtering through it all...
...I did find a reference on a wacko site to an article in the regular press which is familiar and may be what I was hearing about then- evidently these were British engineers and techs in the EW field. The reference is to an AP article called "Demand government explanation of deaths, disappearance" but I cannot find the article and verify if it is what I read or something someone just cooked up to make readers thing there are real references. If a verifiable real article still exists it might be interesting to read- anything printed before the LaRouche folks got a hold of the story should be interesting.
There may be info in Aviation Week archives regarding Marconi Underwater Systems and submarine EW in the eighties in the UK which may be helpful.

Wrote my last post before I read your #36. Yeah, I know filtering LaRouche-influenced articles is a major pain. If you don't want to post the link to the wacko site, feel free to FReepmail me it and I'll see if I can use it to track down whatever source they took it from before weaving it into their conspiracy theory. When you mention the underwater/sub research, were those programs related to a story that hit the news in 1985 about an alleged NATO contingency plan to use nuclear depth charges? The reason I ask is because at that time Leslie Gelb of the NYT (relying on one William Arkin who had access to classified information) leaked an article about that which caused a major headache for NATO; in another thread I've identified Gelb as the one who hired Richard Clarke to the State Department in 1979; I'm wondering if that Gelb-Clarke nexus might point towards any of their sources in the scientific community, which is why I ask.

Found the wacko site you were referring to :) Okay, I see what you're talking about and the names/sources they're referencing--thanks. Heading to bed here, so have a good one!
