I’m interested in finding out what songs have been usedby the U.S. gov’t as a means of psychological torture. The two events that come to mind are the U.S. blasting music to get noriega out of the vatican embassy and when we used a similar tactic of blasting music to try and get people out of the waco compound. I understand that this is not a tactic used often and that the point is to play the same songs over and over again, but so far all i can figure out is that “welcome to the jungle” was played for noriega(this may not even be true). I’m hoping there are other songs that have been played either in these situations or others. I want to know because burning a CD of songs that our gov’t has used as psychological weapons would be…pretty cool.
I think Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots were made for Walking” was played too.
