Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 6 Num. 49 ====================================== ("Quid coniuratio est?") ----------------------------------------------------------------- GOVT. USES "REMOTE VIEWING" TO TRACK UNABOMBER ============================================== [From "Encounters", FOX-TV, 11/11/95] MODERATOR: ...The truth is, the government has been experimenting with psychics since the Cold War. The secrets and power they developed is the same power that the government is using today to help catch a fugitive we've all come to know as "the unabomber". These people are physically present in this room. But they say their minds, their perceptions, are elsewhere. It's called "remote viewing". Practitioners say they are able to see things or places physically distant from themselves. It has the sound of a science, but it's very much a branch of parapsychology. One of the oldest research organizations for the study of parapsychology is the Rhine Institute. Its director is professor Richard Braughton(?). RICHARD BRAUGHTON: Remote viewing is a kind of ESP, really, that's renamed -- for folks in Washington to deal with the occult. But the specific object of remote viewing is to try to spot a distant location -- hence, the name. Now it could be just a natural site, it could be a local place in a city. Or, it could be some distant location or of military significance. MODERATOR: >From a mountaintop, a short drive from New Mexico's super-secret Los Alamos nuclear weapons laboratory, retired Army colonel John Alexander explains the military significance of remote viewing. JOHN ALEXANDER: Through remote viewing, you can have access to information that would be otherwise hidden to you, even by traditional means of intelligence such as overhead cameras or things of that nature. And because sometimes it works, you can have a competitive edge in knowing what's going on in areas that are hidden from view. MODERATOR: A former Special Forces commander in Vietnam, Alexander served in a number of sensitive posts during his military and government career -- including an assignment at the Los Alamos laboratory. While still in the military, he worked with the Army's intelligence and security command, where a small unit of "viewers" operated. In the '70s, remote viewing was instrumental in scoring a big intelligence coup for the United States. JOHN ALEXANDER: There is a case that was reported with the downing of a Soviet aircraft in South Africa. And there was a race between us and the Soviet Union to get to that craft. But neither side was exactly sure where it went down. Using remote viewing techniques, we were able to steer our recovery committee to within 100 meters. And we, in fact, beat the Soviets to the plane. MODERATOR: One of the "remote viewers" who worked in the Army's intelligence command with Colonel Alexander is retired major, Ed Banes(?). Banes left the Army and founded his own company to take advantage of the remote viewing methods he learned in the military. One of the key abilities he learned was something called "bi- locating". ED BANES: The technique teaches the unconscious to perform in a certain way. We gain access, our minds gain closer and closer contact with our target -- a person, place, thing or event -- until the point where we can... We "bi-locate": about *half* of our awareness is located at the site. MODERATOR: Recognizing Banes' unique ability, Defense Intelligence Agency selected him to hunt down the greatest known terrorist: Libyan dictator Moamar Khadafi(sp?). ED BANES: When I was assigned to the Defense Intelligence Agency, I personally remote-viewed the current position of Moamar Khadafi so that attacks could be executed against him. In that case, I remember Moamar Khadafi's mental state: he was boisterous, expressed a lot of bravado to those around him. But inside, he was apprehensive. Not frightened, necessarily -- but looking over his shoulders, particularly looking up. That kind of idea. 'Cuz he knew that the United States was trying to find him. MODERATOR: The government was so intrigued by Banes' unconventional capability, he and his company, PsiTech, were *again* utilized during Operation Desert Storm to locate the compound of "madman" Saddam Hussein and his surplus of lethal weapons. ED BANES: About 48 hours prior to the invasion of Kuwait City by the allies, PsiTech was asked to determine whether or not Saddam Hussein or his forces left behind a weapon of mass destruction in the city -- a nuclear, biological or chemical weapon. In prosecuting that particular project, we discovered the existence of Iraq's biological warfare program. MODERATOR: Through remote viewing, Banes and others in his company were able to produce detailed diagrams of biological warfare sites for U.N. inspection teams in Iraq. ED BANES: We searched an area, a peninsula, near Sumara(?), Iraq, that had already been bombed. We *did* find two locations, very close to each other. One was a storage depot that was hidden beneath an Iraqi Special Forces training compound and nearby another storage facility where, had stored chemical weapons. And the Iraqi forces had piled rubble over the top of it, to imitate bomb damage. MODERATOR: The military's interest in parapsychology began back in the '50s, when the Army contacted the Rhine Institute at Duke University to do studies for them. But the big boost came from the Cold War and the fear of the Soviets. ED BANES: There was nothing like the threat of "the Soviet Union is doing it." That was the best way to get, you know, money, for any of this stuff. JOHN ALEXANDER: One of my jobs was keeping track of work that was done in the Soviet Union and Warsaw Pact. And we did know that they had extensive efforts in these fields. It was of sufficient concern that we felt we needed to keep track of what was going on and do parallel research. MODERATOR: Much of that research was funded by the CIA. *Encounters* asked the agency about their sponsorship of remote viewing and other parapsychological research. The agency sent this letter to *Encounters*: not only does the CIA acknowledge that they sponsored research into remote viewing in the '70s, but they say that, at the request of Congress, the CIA is now analyzing remote viewing to see how useful it may be for *future* intelligence collection. The key to remote viewing's usefulness is how accurate it is. Trained viewer teams are said to achieve success rates of 70 percent. But what about using remote viewing to track down a suspect like the unabomber, the notorious fugitive wanted for carrying out a string of bombings over the last 17 years and who has managed to elude the FBI's best efforts to catch him? Banes is so confident of his abilities, he is willing to make public the information he and his colleagues have gathered by remote viewing the unabomber. Now, exclusively on *Encounters*, his findings: ED BANES: The key assessments, based upon our work, was that there are two individuals associated with bomb fabrication and delivery. These two individuals live in the South Bend - Elkhart, Indiana area. The first individual lives alone within a city, the south, southeast quadrant of one of those cities. He appears to have been an equipment repairman in the past. Individual #2 lives on the outskirts of one of those cities, a place that can be described as rural agricultural. Heavy petrochemical smells are present in the area. MODERATOR: Although the accuracy of Banes' unabomber data remains to be seen, it is certain that remote viewing offers a distinct if unorthodox method of seeking that which is unknown. ED BANES: Essentially, they can run, but they cannot hide. ----------------------------------------------------------------- I encourage distribution of "Conspiracy Nation." ----------------------------------------------------------------- If you would like "Conspiracy Nation" sent to your e-mail address, send a message in the form "subscribe cn-l My Name" to listproc@cornell.edu ----------------------------------------------------------------- For information on how to receive the new Conspiracy Nation Newsletter, send an e-mail message to bigred@shout.net ----------------------------------------------------------------- Want to know more about Whitewater, Oklahoma City bombing, etc?
