CIA remote viewing programs have always been controversial. The Agency maintains that it ceased the programs back in 1995 because costs exceeded benefits. Former participants rebut this, claiming the accuracy of the report the CIA commissioned just before the program ceased was deliberately skewed to ease the Agency's transition of a portion of the program to "deep cover." This transfer places any such program, if it still exists, into a budget where expenditures and results are not accessible to the general public.

The Legacy of CIA Remote Viewing Programs

A number of books, articles, papers and reports have been published about these remote viewing programs. The disbanding of the CIA's program coincides with the first major book published about it. This book was written by a former ranking Army officer, who participated in the program as a remote viewing trainee. Several other program supervisors and participants now teach the techniques.

Because the CIA and military agencies needed to insure accuracy, protocols and techniques were developed. These techniques had to be consistent and produce results that were verifiable. The original research into phenomenon such as astral projection and remote viewing was done by the prominent Stanford Research Institute and through this research, remote viewing techniques were developed.

The results of this application of scientific method included the creation of techniques that could be taught to almost anyone. The program's selection of people who were particularly gifted in this area tends to indicate that some people may have a greater ability to perceive some kinds of information, but experts maintain that anyone can gain at least some skill. Many programs are now available through workshops, lectures and the Internet that can teach the interested potential student.
