Several sources, including investigative journalist Gus Russo, are reporting America’s psychic spy program is alive and well, hidden in the depths of the National Security Agency. The latest revelations identified officials from the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
This report was first published in 2007, and has been updated with new information.
(STARpod.us) — Update: Christopher Robinson, a citizen of the United Kingdom, a psychic source who had warned authorities of airplanes striking buildings in the month prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, confirmed to STARpod.org NSA involvement in testing psychics against intelligence targets, including the recently revealed nuclear facility in Iran.
Additional information provided by Mr. Robinson identified persons at Donald Rumsfeld’s Office of the Secretary of Defense during the President George W. Bush “war on terror.”
Psychic sources suggest there is at least one more secret nuclear facility in Iran. A statement by Secretary of Defense Robert Gates implies the U.S. government is aware of the existence of the other Iranian nuclear facilities, as reported by Adam Rawnsley for WIRED.com.
Rumors that a psychic spy program had been resurrected to fight the war on terror have been leaked to journalists, beginning with an alleged statement made by Uri Geller to author Jon Ronson, as told in his book “The Men Who Stare at Goats.”

17 September 2007
(STARstream Research) — Gus Russo is the author of several books including “Live by the Sword: The Secret War Against Castro and the Death of JFK.” Russo has worked as an investigative reporter for PBS’s Frontline and ABC News. In a story published in June of this year, Russo examined the “Real X-Files” behind the infiltration of government intelligence agencies into networks of investigative citizen journalists interested in exotic phenomena, like UFOs and parapsychology.
According to information provided by an independent source to Gus Russo, the STAR GATE psychic spy project “was relocated from CIA and is one of the most highly classified at NSA.”
In 1995, the CIA inherited STAR GATE, a TOP SECRET psychic spy program run by the Defense Intelligence Agency. STAR GATE has become the nickname for numerous government programs, beginning in 1972, that explored and applied human mental powers to collect intelligence. Many spy agencies were involved in STAR GATE, or similar projects, including the CIA, DIA, the USAF, the Navy, Army Intelligence and Missile Command, Secret Service, The Joint Chiefs of Staff, and others.
Another agency known to have been involved was the National Security Agency (NSA).
CIA killed the STAR GATE program in 1995, shortly after a Congressional Mandate transferred control of the program from DIA. Several years later, approximately 89,000 pages of STAR GATE documents were released to the public, many heavily redacted with sections or entire pages removed or censored in black.
Sources are telling STARstream Research that America’s psychic spy efforts continue today as part of the war on terror.
Gus Russo’s source told him “NSA considers remote viewing a valid SIGINT tool.”
Remote viewing refers to the use of mental powers to perform psychic spying — the use of extra-sensory perceptions of the human mind to access information not available to ordinary senses.
In the Intelligence Community, the National Security Agency “collects, processes and disseminates foreign Signals Intelligence (SIGINT).”
According to the NSA web site, “SIGINT plays a vital role in our national security by employing the right people and using the latest technology to provide America’s leaders with the critical information they need to save lives, defend democracy, and promote American values.”
If Russo’s source is correct, SIGINT now includes exotic phenomenology for intelligence collection. Government persons and citizens interested in exotic phenomena are sometimes called phenomenologists.
In addition to Russo’s source, another unrelated former government scientist told Caryn Anscomb, a contributing investigator for STARstream Research, of a “deep black” psychic spy program.
One possible explanation for a current NSA program is found in 1994 briefings given to various intelligence agencies, including Andy Marshall at the Pentagon’s Office of Net Assessment.
A year before CIA killed the STAR GATE project, DIA documents show renewed interest in Russian phenomenology, with the discovery of a possible signal-carrying mechanism for psychic phenomena. STAR GATE scientific research was conducted by defense contractor Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). The final SAIC report mentions various possible mechanisms for signal transmission.
The NSA is conspicuously absent from later-day STAR GATE documents. Incomplete redacting, which is the blacking out of sensitive information, appears to identify a representative from NSA in at least one of the 1994 DIA briefing documents.
If a transmission mechanism was discovered during STAR GATE research, psychic spying would change from HUMINT (human intelligence sources) to SIGINT (signal intelligence sources).
Gus Russo’s unnamed source reports strange new developments at the NSA program.
According to Russo, “The source says the program encountered problems when when foreign targets were being blocked by an extraterrestrial source that has never been identified.”
STAR GATE files prove that DIA psychic spies reported encounters with extraterrestrials during the 1980’s. Documents stamped with official CIA declassification ID numbers include drawings of biological entities and descriptions of their locations on Earth, and in space.
Investigator Caryn Anscomb asked Russo to rate the credibility of his human source for the latest NSA revelation. Russo replied, “His speculations are sometimes further than I would go … But his accuracy re: facts has never been in question.”
Some of the most vocal opponents to the possible existence of the NSA psychic-spy program worked with the original STAR GATE projects.
Paul H. Smith, a former DIA source, is the President of IRVA — the International Remote Viewing Association — an organization comprised of veterans of previous government programs and next generation private sector psychics. When asked about the NSA program, Smith replied, “If there still actually is one, I have no info on it.”
Colonel John B. Alexander, retired, a well known advocate for non-lethal weapons, told Coast to Coast AM host George Noory he doubted the government was currently involved in remote viewing.
“The talent pool is really relatively small … and most of these people all know each other.”
Russo told STARstream Research the NSA remote viewers had received special university-level training.

A major security breach occurred in 1973 when, according to numerous accounts, SRI remote viewers Pat Price and Ingo Swann spied on NSA’s Sugar Grove facility in West Virginia.
The tale of this incident was told by CIA’s Ken Kress in a 1999 revised version of a formerly secret story written for CIA’s internal “Studies in Intelligence,” and is recorded in detail in the STAR GATE SRI Final Report for January 1974 to February 1975.
Kress writes, “No maps were permitted, and the subjects were asked to give an immediate response of what they remotely viewed at these coordinates. The subject came back with descriptions which were apparent misses. They both talked about a military-like facility … To the surprise of the [CIA] OSI officer, he soon discovered a sensitive government installation a few miles from the vacation property. This discovery led to a request to have Price provide information concerning the interior workings of this particular site. All the data produced by the two subjects were reviewed in CIA and the Agency [NSA] concerned.”
“Pat Price, who had no military or intelligence background, provided a list of project titles associated with current and past activities including one of extreme sensitivity. Also, the codename of the site was provided. Other information concerning the physical layout of the site was accurate. Some information, such as the names of the people at the site, proved incorrect.”
Pages from the SRI report are available for viewing at STARstream Research web sites.
A few years later, following Price’s death, it was alleged by the FBI that Price had been passing information about the SRI research to a private organization. Kress addressed this incident in the 1999 public version of his CIA article:
“In the late 1970s, several years after the project was terminated, I got a secure line call from a person who identified himself as an FBI agent … The FBI agent proceeded to explain that Pat Price was a member of an organization that was recently raided for documents indicative of illegal activity. The organization was vigorously resisting the government investigation but the raid produced hundreds of files and papers that supported the government’s allegations. These documents were now in the public domain as part of the discovery process in the legal proceedings. One such file included debriefings of Pat Price about his CIA remote viewing projects … As the file made clear, Pat, who had signed an official secrecy agreement, would immediately go to his superior in the organization after sessions with me and divulge everything.”
