The Secret History of the U.S. Government's Investigations Into Extrasensory Perception and PsychokinesisBook - 2017 | First edition
For more than forty years, the U.S. government has researched extrasensory perception, using it in attempts to locate hostages, fugitives, secret bases, and downed fighter jets; to divine other nations' secrets; and even to predict future threats to national security. The intelligence agencies and military services involved include the CIA, DIA, NSA, DEA, the Navy, Air Force, and Army--and even the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Now, for the first time, Jacobsen tells the story of these radical, controversial programs, using never-before-seen declassified documents as well as exclusive interviews with, and unprecedented access to, more than fifty of the individuals involved. A riveting investigation into how far governments will go in the name of national security.-- adapted from dust jacket.
