According to this report 700 Zombies near Palin rally are “no threat.”
“I mean, when you see 700 shambling dead zombies walking toward the Civic Center up the bridge, it would probably get the Secret Service’s attention,” Burrello said with a laugh Friday. “So we gave them a heads up on it to make sure they know we’re not doing any kind of protest or (are a) threat in anyway.”
According to this report in the guardian the CIA have been trying to create Zombies for 30 years.
The clandestine Project MKULTRA was created in 1953 to develop the CIA’s interrogation, behaviour-modification and mind-control abilities. This involved dosing unsuspecting subjects with drugs such as temazepam, mescaline, psilocybin and Sodium Pentothal; more inventive techniques such as hypnosis, sub-aural frequency blasts, and sleep deprivation were also employed. When details of MKULTRA surfaced there was a public outcry; the programme was officially abandoned and all records ordered destroyed. Whether the CIA ever discovered the zombie formula remains unknown.
