Summary For more than forty years, the United States 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 Jacobsen tells the story of these radical, controversial programs, using declassified documents as well as exclusive interviews with more than fifty of the individuals involved.
