(This was a deliberate effort made to impress on the Senator that LTC Buzby and CPT Atwater are involved in the intelligence application of remote viewing, and that they are assigned to INSCOM and not DIA.) That assignment is to a project known as CENTER LANE which is a project involved with the intelligence application of the process known as remote viewing. The sensitivity and classification of the project was provided. The Senator acknowledged an understanding of the classification and sensitivity. CPT Atwater then provided a summary of all the projects in the briefing book and two current NSA projects. He accomplished this by leading the Senator through the projects, highlighting the intelligence significance of each project. The INSCOM portion of the briefing lasted 15 minutes. 3. (S/CL-4/NDFORN) At the conclusion of the briefing, Dr. Verona reiterated that the purpose of the briefing was to illustrate that psychoenergeties, remote viewing did in fact have intelligence application, and that it should be placed back in the National Foreign Intelligence Program (NFIP) to give the program the protection it needed. He requested that the Senator insert language in the Congressional Conference Report that would permit the program to be included in the FY 85 GDIP submission. The Senator replied that he is only one person, and that perhaps the briefing should be presented to the entire SSCI Budget Subcommittee. He added that there might not be a conference report because of ongoing "internal political infighting" and that the lack of resolution of this infighting might be a continuing resolution instead of an appropriations bill. Dr. Vorona acknowledged the situation, and concluded that he would welcome the opportunity to brief the Budget Subcommittee. 4. (S/CL-2/NOFORN) Senator Wallop is an important player. in DoD's involve- ment in psychoorrergetics. We is the individual who was responsible for the project being eliminated under the NFIP (GRIP) at the end of FY 82 (Intl 1). the intelligence applications of remote viewing as illustrated in the briefing book definitely impressed him.
