From behind the cloak of US military secrecy comes the story of Star Gate, the project that for nearly a quarter of a century trained soldiers and civilian spies in extra-sensory perception ­(ESP). Their objective: ­To uncover the secrets of America’s enemies using a skill called “remote viewing.” Assigned to the remote viewing unit in 1983 at a pivotal time in its history, Army Major Paul H. Smith served there for the rest of the decade, witnessing and taking part in many of the seminal national-security crises of the twentieth century.
Now for the first time since the Star Gate secrets have been declassified and the program mothballed by the CIA, the complete story can now be told of the every-day soldiers who were drafted onto this battlefield of human consciousness. From the program's victories such as finding hostages in Lebanon to tracking foreign testing of weapons of mass destruction to unrelenting attempts from within and without to destroy the program, the history of the Star Gate program is extraordinary. This is a story for the believer and the skeptic---a rare look at the innards of a top secret program and an eye-opening treatise on the power of the human mind to transcend the limitations of space and time.
