  • Remote Viewing : The Firedocs Collection : Joe McMoneagle featured in (Virginia newspaper, title unknown)
    about a hostage in Iran I would go into an office much like a regular office sit at a table with a blank piece of paper and a pen or pencil they would show you a photograph of the individual and I would then draw or sketch something McMoneagle said he would be able to focus leave his body and get a sense about the subject he was asked about It was not until the early 1970 s said his wife Nancy that McMoneagle began having spontaneous outer body experiences and began working on remote viewings Although McMoneagle worked on more than 350 cases as a U S Army intelligence officer he said that he could not discuss his involvement because the cases are still extremely sensitive A native of Miami McMoneagle volunteered to serve in the U S Army in 1964 when It wasn t a popular thing to do When he returned from Vietnam he spent a week at the Afton Mountain Inn It s like the Switzerland of the Northeast he said I just fell in love with this area and moved here permanently when I retired in 1977 After retiring from the Army McMoneagle worked as a consultant for SRI International on the research side of the business and continues to give lectures at the Monroe Institute a paranormal research center in Nelson County One of the more interesting aspects of the business said McMoneagle 49 was the skepticism many people have toward psychic phenomena I m proud to say most people were skeptical he said Usually when we were allowed to demonstrate we could prove the skeptics wrong But sometimes people were incapable of opening their minds The remote viewings said McMoneagle are very different than psychic readings Psychics have no rules guiding them they

    goofy he said Instead of using known psychic abilities for specific suitable objectives the military tried to adapt their abilities inappropriate missions They began putting the cart before the horse he said Revelations that the Army CIA and other govenrment agencies used psychics will floor a lot of people McMoneagle said There will be some people who will be very offended But it s amazing how people will simply not believe that there is another reality out there beyond the one they see in the mirror A CIA spokesman confirmed the use of the psychics yesterday according to The Associated Press which also quoted researchers who said the government spent as much as 20 million over two decades Missions ranged from psychic searches for Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi to searches for plutonium in North Korea McMoneagle was one of the major players in the project and continued working for the government on a contract basis long after his 1984 retirement Code named Stargate the psychic team was so secret that a Legion of Merit awarded to McMoneagle describes it only as a unique intelligence project that is revolutionizing the intelligence community McMoneagle is going public in response to studies that are labeling the project as ineffective Tomorrow night on the taped ABC special McMoneagle gives an eerily specific description of a location in Houston after he s shown a picture of a woman located there He had never been in the Texas city A news release describes McMoneagle s performance as one of the most spectacular demonstrations of paranormal abilities ever presented on network television His performance should create a sensation It s hardly old hat to the Miami native even he was stunned by the accuracy of his taped television appearance but he said he gained a reputation as one of the military s best practitioners of the art His involvement many details of which are still secret never fit a cloak and dagger image much less one of a roadside palm reader He did his job in a Spartan office decorated with nothing more than a drawing of the crab nebula that he did himself he made standard Army wages of 2 500 a month I lived in the barracks got up and showered and got dressed and went to work he said Ever major missions rarely amounted to anything more than being handed an envelope with a picture of someone and trying to sense a related location Failures as learning experiences We d go out on the town when we had a good day McMoneagle said Failures were regarded as learning experiences examples of improper sensory interpretation The loneliness of the job destroyed marriages and ruined careers said McMoneagle who lasted longer than most I really have the feeling that I was doing something to help our country I had a real sense that what I was doing was important McMoneagle enlisted in the Army after high school and was a chief warrant officer when he retired

    United States government with intelligence gathering and research into the phenomenon While I was assigned to the U S Army Intelligence and Security Command INSCOM during the late 1970s and early 80s I was part of Project Grill Flame McMoneagle said We did a lot of research concerning remote viewing and actually used it in real situations The American Research Instititute 2 just came out with a report that was done at the behest of the CIA It s a semi classified report but from what I understand it states that there is really very little use for remote viewing in collecting intelligence Unfortunately this is not true For the past 23 years remote viewing has been used in collecting intelligence To my knowledge almost every major government agency including the CIA National Security Agency Drug Enforcement Agency Joint Chiefs of Staff and the Secret Service have used remote viewers at some point During one experiment for Project Grill Flame McMoneagle said researchers wanted to find out if remote viewers could gather information on military equipment under development The target we were given was the Abrams battle tank which was in the prototype stage at the time McMoneagle said They parked the tank in an aircraft hangar thinking the remote viewers would find it more complicated to describe it with planes around it But in fact we were able to draw in detail the optical targeting mechanism the auto loading mechanism the interior seating arrangements and the type of armor being developed for it On another occasion McMoneagle said his remote viewing skills were used to locate an American general who had been kidnapped by terrorists The general was rescued before the information could be used but he said it was found to be extremely accurate Photo insert D2 Photo of windmill generators on flattish rolling hills above sketch of windmill generators on flattish rolling hills Caption Joseph McMoneagle drew this picture of generators in California McMoneagle discovered his talent for remote viewing quite by accident after he was assigned to INSCOM in 1978 In October of that year he was sent to a conference at the Cognitive Science Lab of SRI International near San Francisco where remote viewing was one of the subjects being studied When McMoneagle was asked to participate in a remote viewing experiment he agreed Although he said he thought he was only guessing it turned out that he had described several of the target areas in great detail He then became involved with remote viewing full time To date he said he has participated in more than 4 000 remote viewing sessions under controlled conditions Since I ve been doing this I ve maintained approximately the same percentage of accuracy in terms of the number of times I can hit a target McMoneagle said That ranges between 25 and 30 percent So out of any four targets I will get one of them But out of the one I do nail the amount of accurate

    in 1964 and was severely injured in a helicopter accident in Vietnam He said he knew when he first joined the Stargate project which was then called Grillflame in 1978 that he would never again be taken seriously for any other job in the military But he felt the assignment was too important to national security to decline Everybody s got it all backward he said of the criticism and ridicule the project is receiving today He explained that the government was not using psychics to find people or things They were using remote viewers about 15 of them who operated under strict guidelines developed in the laboratories at SRI International a California contractor to provide additional information to be used in conjunction with intelligence gathered by satellites or spies or any other traditional means He said the reported cost of 20 million for the 20 year product was minuscule compared to its value and estimated that remote viewers saved the government about 240 million by helping find lost Scud missiles in the Persian Gulf War Research has shown that remote viewing works 14 percent of the time or more he said There is a huge percentage of intelligence collection systems that don t do as well The information provided by remote viewers he reiterated was never used without other types of corroboration He said nearly every agency with an intelligence wing an intelligence wing including the CIA the National Security Agency the Drug Enforcement Agency the Joint Chiefs of Staff the Secret Service the Coast Guard and Customs employed remote viewers at some time or another On a typical workday McMoneagle said he reported to an old leaky wooden barracks at Fort Meade where he went into a one person office He sat at a desk with a typewriter and a mug of coffee The cup said This End Up and had an arrow pointing the wrong way He was then presented with sealed envelopes sometimes large brown ones sometimes small white ones and he was asked to supply information about whatever was inside There might be a photograph of a person he said and he would be asked to describe where the person was locateed In that way he said he helped the Army locate hostages in Iran He said he predicted almost precisely where Skylab was going to fall 11 months before the spacecraft returned to Earth in 1979 He named the city in Italy Padua and described the second floor apartment where Brig Gen James Dozier was held hostage by the Red Brigades in 1981 The information arrived in Italy on the day Dozier was released Over the years McMoneagle said he was involved in about 450 missions One of his favorites was in 1980 when CIA personnel captured a suspected KGB agent in South Africa They wanted to know how the agent was communicating with the Soviet military They put an envelope on McMoneagle s desk and without knowing anything of the man McMoneagle told

    the information from a different source at the same time we did but I d say that s pretty important stuff McMoneagle said McMoneagle refused to share details on other specific targets chosen by the government You ve got to understand many of these were extremely sensitive he said McMoneagle s employment as a government funded psychic began in 1978 He was recruited for a program entitled Grillflame a project founded to delve into applications of the mind for military use while enlisted in the U S Army s intelligence field Grillflame was later redesignated as Stargate McMoneagle said and from 1978 until his retirement from the Army in 1984 as a chief warrant officer he conducted remote viewings for more than 300 targets while stationed at Fort Meade Md He was on call for the project aafter 1984 he said the most recent assignment occurred in 1993 for the Defense Intelligence Agency DIA Management of the project bounced from the auspices of the CIA to the DIA McMoneagle said Remote viewing of targets was conducted for numerous government agencies such as the FBI the Drug Enforcement Agency National Security Agency and the Secret Service McMoneagle became the target last week after the release of Stargate s existence News reporters tracked him to his home in Faber to divine information in a more traditional method More than a dozen reporters from local and national newspapers contacted McMoneagle requesting interviews as well as television crews whose combined call letters could form an alphabet soup He continued to answer the phone ringing on two different telephone numbers and granted interviews to set the record straight McMoneagle said The American Research Institute ARI compiled the report that debunked Stargate s usefulness The 20 million price tag for the project as tallied since its

  • Remote Viewing - Joseph 'Joe' McMoneagle interviewed in the June 1998 edition of Psychic World Magazine. Part of PJ Gaenir's Firedocs Remote Viewing Collection.
    I was also able to provide specific details about this submarine including its size armament hull configuration and even the projected date of launch As a result of this information I provided the intelligence community was later able to confirm the existence of the new Soviet Typhoon class submarine the largest in the world Another tasking assigned to me came when Army Brig Gen James Dozier was kidnapped by the Red Brigade in northern Italy in 1981 Upon remote viewing the situation I was able to provide the name of the town and a description of where he was being held Dozier was freed however before my information which was correct arrived on site Tom Joe how much of the government s remote viewing program which formally existed from 1978 to 1995 right would you estimate is still classified Joe The Army remote viewing program began in 1978 and ended in November of 1995 Probably less than two percent of the information pertinent to the program has been released certainly almost none of the operational data A great deal of the research data is still classified as well Tom Can you tell us which government agencies utilized you for psychic spying work Joe My Legion of Merit award which I received for my work in the remote viewing program mentions a number of agencies including the CIA DIA FBI Secret Service Department of Defense U S Customs and even the U S Coast Guard There are numerous others which will remain anonymous I might add that as is normally the case information of extreme value is always separated from the source in order to protect the source So it would not be surprising if some of the agencies that used our services didn t even know they were doing so Tom These agencies must have been highly satisfied with your performance The fact that you received the Legion of Merit award we think is testimony to that Joe Most of the agencies were satisfied If one understands how intelligence information is actually used then one would understand that our material was no more or no less valued than any other sources material It most certainly was never intended to be used as a stand alone material which is a fabrication Tom Probably the most extensive book published to date about the government remote viewing program is Jim Schnabel s 452 page Remote Viewers The Secret History of America s Psychic Spies 1997 Having been a part of the program during its entire existence do you regard this book to be a fairly accurate portrayal of the program and the individuals involved Joe Concerning Remote Viewers it is probably 40 60 the 60 percent being way off mark Without confirming or denying any of its content I can say there are two major holes in it First of all 16 of the 26 people interviewed for the book had no direct knowledge of the Army remote viewing program except through hearsay Most of my interview was extrapolated from a talk I gave at the Monroe Institute in Virginia and required at least a few leaps of logic Some of the people interviewed had axes to grind And if you examine the book carefully you will notice a total lack of information concerning the research side after 1986 when about 75 percent of the research was expended between 1986 and 1995 Tom You ve been called the most renowned remote viewer in the United States but we might never have heard of you or the remote viewing program if it had not been for the sterling spade work done back in the 1970s by famed psychic Ingo Swann who has been called the father of remote viewing and the scientists at the American Society of Psychical Research ASPR and the Stanford Research Institute now known as SRI International Surely you must feel a good deal of gratitude to these individuals Any others who come to mind and who you think should be acknowledged for their contributions to remote viewing Joe If you want to refer to the father of remote viewing you would have to go back half a century to the French parapsychologist Rene Warcollier At a lecture he delivered at the Sorbonne in June 1946 he presented the results of hundreds of experiments that he had conducted in the decades prior The examples Warcollier presented were clearly and without a doubt remote viewing Warcollier s work was certainly limelighted by Ingo Swann s work with the ASPR as well as by the work done by Dr Hal Puthoff and Russell Targ at SRI International Pat Price one of the first remote viewers to be tested by Puthoff and Targ certainly was instrumental in establishing the intelligence value of remote viewing And over the past 10 years a significant amount of research has been published by Dr Edwin C May of the Cognitive Sciences Lab We could not have gotten to where we are without any of these individuals as well as the dozens of others who made significant contributions Tom You were featured on an ABC TV special back in late November 1995 called PUT TO THE TEST and successfully demonstrated your remote viewing abilities before a huge national audience Weren t you the first person ever to do this Has anyone else to your knowledge done it since Joe I might have been the first person to demonstrate remote viewing on a major TV network but plenty of others preceded me in demonstrating it on film Ingo Swann Pat Price and Hella Hammid all remote viewers at SRI International during the 70 s were part of this bunch I might add that in regard to the ABC TV special I ve since done seven more shows like it both here and in England Tom Upon retiring from the military in 1984 you founded Intuitive Intelligence Applications and proceeded to make your remote viewing services available to the public Your

    If anything the Koestler Institute s research has made explanations harder to find the room used for the experiments is electromagnetically screened ruling out the vague notion that people are somehow picking up feeble electrical or magnetic activity being generated in the brains of others There s some New Age talk about a quantum web of interactions that binds every living thing in the universe to everything else but such vague explanations are precisely that vague Lack of an obvious explanation for ESP and the like would not by itself be enough to repel most scientists to this day no one understands precisely how anaesthetics work but that doesn t stop doctors using them The real reason orthodox scientists refuse point blank to take claims for ESP seriously is more sociological than scientific a fear of being written off by their peers as a loony or a fraud And the paranormal has certainly had its fair share of both Exhibit A in the case against claims for the paranormal is getting a bit dusty but has lost none of its power It dates back to the 1930s and centres on the work of Dr Samuel Soal lecturer in mathematics at the University of London He began as a sceptic and even set up card guessing experiments to debunk claims for telepathy His initial findings seemed to support his scepticism in over 120 000 trials his results showed a hit rate no better than chance But sifting through the data he found that one subject named Basil Shakleton scored staggeringly well in guessing not the card that was dealt but the one that would come up next In other words Soal s results may not have been evidence for ESP but Dr Soal recalled Shakleton and between 1936 and 1943 carried out a series of tests whose findings were on paper at least utterly convincing In one run Shakleton scored 1 101 hits out of 3 789 a success rate so high that the chances of it being a fluke are almost incalculably small very roughly they are equivalent to winning the National Lottery jackpot six times on the trot When Dr Soal s results were published in 1954 they were hailed as the long awaited definitive proof for the reality of paranormal abilities and all the more impressive for coming from an academic and former sceptic But soon rumours began to circulate that Soal s results were not all they seemed There was talk of collusion data massaging and outright fraud all of which Soal vehemently denied Then in 1960 one of Dr Soal s test subjects claimed that she had seen him secretly alter the records of his experiments to boost the numbers of hits An examination of Dr Soal s papers would have settled the matter unfortunately Dr Soal said he had mislaid the originals on a train journey As it happens the coup de grace was delivered by the Society of Psychical Research in London A study

  • Remote Viewing : The Firedocs Collection : Joe McMoneagle, and interview with Magical Blend Magazine
    Mars Could you tell us about that Joseph McMoneagle At the Monroe Institute in Virginia they locked me up in the windowless remote viewing room to ensure I didn t see who was bringing the targets A man from NASA arrived carrying a sheet of paper with seven sets of coordinates They read the target coordinates to me and I started describing this pyramid which I assumed to be in Egypt But it didn t make sense to me because I was describing corridors and rooms that I knew didn t exist in the Egyptian pyramids I described all seven targets in detail the first six correctly The man from NASA was absolutely blown away Only he knew what was at each of these locations About five months later we got a call from him and he told us that the next Mars mission would be targeted against one of those coordinate sites That s the last I ever heard about it other than that on the next Mars mission the spacecraft was sent the wrong code or something and shut down It didn t operate or function after that Could you site another experience that affected you deeply Joseph McMoneagle One target I was asked to report on turned out to be an individual who had been killed in a car accident I was given a date a location and a time Although I didn t know it the time I was given was approximately three minutes before this person had died I started out accurately describing the person the car and the road that he was driving on About three or four minutes into the remote viewing session I said Something has changed The person s now floating horizontally in front of me He s drifting away into a black void and I m trying to follow but I keep having these veils of cloth inserted between me and him This was interesting to me because I wouldn t have chosen such an archaic metaphor for death Going beyond the veils was an expression used by mediums in the twenties and thirties Before this remote viewing experiment I had rejected the old spiritualists approach but when I actually saw the veils I suddenly found myself thinking My god I ve been shutting out something that is real It s one more lesson that there s more going on than we think and maybe we ought to have a more open mind about some things I should tell you that I had a second near death experience in 1985 five months after I retired from the Army I had a major heart attack at the ripe old age of thirty nine and once again I encountered the White Light This time I realized it was finite and had limits I ve since concluded that what the White Light is is what we would call the totality of self what we are when we re not physical So in seeing
