It's a clean, it's window behind the bed. One window on side wall. Looks somewhat like a clean hotel room. #14 This will be a remote viewing session (edited for security). REMOTE VIEWING (RV) SESSION CC45 I've shown you a picture of an individual. I want you to focus your attention on that individual. Project yourself to his location and describe your surroundings and impression to me. Table and chair, get the impression there's a mirror on the wall. I's a corner room. I think he's on the third floor. He's..uh..he's dressed pretty casually. Open white shirt, and a sweater or something. I get the.... I get the impression of a telephone or he's looking for some way to communicate. In fact, seems to be biggest problem. Get the impression he's angry, more angry than scared. I want to say he hasn't seen anybody. It's predominant (mumbling) to communicate through. What ever it means. Probably a reporter, or something. (Mumbling) I think he's trying ... #14 What is he trying? +14 #08 Trying to set up a comma-some kind of system that he can tell his superiors... tell the States, I guess. This guy's a tall man. Lie's 6 feet...tall. Get the impression he's not buying the story. He's sticking to his own convictions.

I want to say, it's like ..... it's in a busy area.... like downtown. OK. Slight overhang on the first floor stories go up ...4 or 5 stories.. get the impression of sign, white background with black lettering. #14 Can you read this sign? #08 First impression I got was like "crystal" but, it doesn't make sense. Bottom floor's glass..(mumbling) dining room. It's on a street, close to the sidewalk. Seems to be on a little rise..seems..grassy rise... impression is red brick, dark brick, red, brown brick. Outline is (mumbling) white brick. I don't see any traffic. Activity but it's light. Should be more. I get impression some of the top rooms have little balconies like iron, iron, wrought balconies. Anything else? #14 +23 #08 #08 #14 +27 #08 I want you to go back into the building to the location where this individual is, and I want you to go out the door and search around and tell me if you find any others. There's a bunch of rooms.In the next room, too. It's not connected with them. It's not American. Next to that is a woman, back here. Oh.. .about 5 3, 5 4, black hair, late 20s early 30s. I don't know. She looks..uh..she's dark complected. I don't think she's American. She feels too free. Anything else (mumbling) about her? One question. Go back to the individual. Is he a hostage? Yes, and no. He's got some freedom, but is very closely supervised. I don't see any guards. He's (mumbling) free to do exactly what he wants. His main concern is to establish a commo or something.

Kind of relaxed not under pressure. Is there anything else that you would like to add? No. No. Ok. Why don't we sit up and make some sketches. At first I couldn't tell whether he was a hostage, but he was very casually dressed. There was a ..... freedom... a certain amount of freedom that he enjoyed. No guards. Where I picked him up was..uh on the third floor ...what I thought was the third floor-looked like a hotel room.. .and he had the corner building ...... corner room ...I saw windows here, with a bed. There was either....that's another thing... there was plumbing, or access to plumbing, like showers and stuff which seemed to (mumbling) out of place... whatever it was.... sink or shower.... whatever ..... I want to call them bathing facilities but they were .washing facilities. Sort of got the impression, there was a mirror here and he had a table. Something like that, and some furniture. I didn't pay attention to the furniture. Water ..... this was a window. Here I saw one, and another time I saw two. I don't know which one is right. Next door to him, later on, there was somebody in here. Definitely not American. I want to say Iranian but I don't know. I don't know. Then the lady that you asked me to describe was in the other room, and she was definitely under no pressure. In fact, I saw her with a black skirt, black sweater, and dark hair, 5-2, 5-3, like she was having a good time and there was no worry. But this guy, what I saw was very strong anger. #14 OK. Why don't you mark in this thing ..... alien man and alien woman, if that is what your impression was. #08 And, there were no guards. Like I say. He seems to enjoy some liberty.... sort of telephone ..... communica- tions .....back to his superiors... and then later on when you pushed me on it I thought he was trying to get a commo system established with the hostages, somehow. But the commo link was all important to him. The other thing I said was that he wasn't sharing or spouting off or being sympathetic to (mumbling)... he Approved For Release 2000/08/07 : CIA-RDP96-00788R000800370001-4 Approved For Release 20 0788R000800370001-4 #08 is not.... he was very angry, and, I guess he has to restrain himself. 11 not going to spout there. Propaganda, so to speak, or that ..........convictions. I got the impression that this was a.... this was a face (mumbling)..... had a hard time making out the (mumbling).... here four stories, maybe five .....there could be another one here, but I.... but he was some place here .... right around this corner building. This went this way, and this window was like this. There was an entry way...I saw kind of an overhang over here... something like that. Just a slight overhang. This was all brick... and around the windows I saw something like a cement, a red, white cement outline. The sign that I saw was something like this. This may be exaggerated maybe it's not.It had a white glass background, and...I can't lettering.. what I thought was crystal, I don't know...... the word crystal as opposed to anything else. Like old English lettering. Then you had your entrance here. All of this portion ...... maybe that's what messed me up ..... like the restaurant and bar, and lounge portion. Reception area. Then this took place first I thought it was right close to the street and then I got this perception that it was on a sort of a ......... grassy knoll, ok. And, somehow, it was higher than the surrounding buildings. It should have been flat on the ground, but it was somewhat higher and there was grass here, and grass here, and a walk here, maybe. So that this went down this way, this went down this way. Yeah, this was...the entire thing was red/brown brick, or something like that. That's all I can tell you. That's all I can tell you. #14 Anything else you can think of that you would like to add? No. It struck me that the accommodations were comfortable. I wasn't expecting that. Then I started looking for guards, and bars, like I normally do. I couldn't find any. Then, the relaxed atmosphere of the other people ...when you said go down and look for ..uh..the hostage I made about. . .you know ...I could have kept on for another two or three hours, because there were that many rooms. But, I could not get the feeling if there was somebody else under pressure or whatever. #14 In other words, you described a not so hostage situation. All right. We'll call that the end of the session.
