There is a lot of excitement right now about the new George Clooney film, The Men Who Stare at Goats. After all, who could resist a movie that starts by mixing humor with stories featuring psychic arts and peaceful warriors sporting all-seeing eye tattoos, loosely drawn from a real-life military ESP program, and which then winds up during the war in Iraq with the liberation of a stable full of doomed goats destined to be stared to death! Join former Army psychic warrior Maj. Paul H. Smith (US Army, ret.) as he spins the stories behind the stories of “The Men Who Stare at Goats,” touching on secrets, straightening out twisted tales, and excavating down to bedrock truth about the soldiers who used ESP to keep track of America’s Cold War foes.
For seven years, Paul H. Smith was assigned to the military psychic espionage program eventually known as Star Gate. He is author of Reading the Enemy’s Mind: Inside Star Gate—America’s Psychic Espionage Program (Tor/Forge, 2005), which was the Book Bonus and Editor’s Choice feature for the March 2006 Reader’s Digest. Paul is President and Chief Instructor for Austin-based Remote Viewing Instructional Services, Inc. and President of the International Remote Viewing Association.
