The BBC has done an excellent job recently in reporting on the British Government crack on Jim McCormick for selling the ADE651 to Iraq for $85 million US. After the recent failure of the nearly identical GT200 in Thailand's tests, they ask why the British government did not intervene sooner. Mr. James Randi exposed the Quadro Tracker dowsing rod in 1995 and 96. After the FBI arrested the makers and the US courts banned the sale of the device, the makers moved to the UK and renamed the device the MOLE Detector. When it was tested by US scientists in 2002, they noted it seemed to have been made in the exact same mould for plastic the Quadro Tracker had been made in. Mr. Randi has been trying since then to get people to heed the warnings about these deadly bogus detectors, but it was not until hundreds of citizens of Iraq died needlessly that any action was taken. How many people have lost their lives in Iraq, Lebanon, Thailand, Mexico, and other countries because of dependence on these worthless fraudulent detectors instead of technology that works, or at least spending the money on other equipment.
