MEMO FOR: SG1I FROM: SUBJECT: 20 April 1995 Ed May of SAIC called this morning and volunteered to send me unsolicited information he had obtained from a "remote viewer" named "Joe" relating to the Oklahoma City Bombing. I said that we did not have a means at ORD for tasking or disseminating this type of information at CIA and therefore there was no one I could give it to. He asked me for a point of contact in law enforcement who might want the information. I said I did not know a point of contact for anyone at the FBI. I recommended that he send it to his SG1J former COTR, at DIA. He said they didn't get along. I said send it anyway. He asked me if I would personally be interested in seeing it. I said go ahead and fax it. Later, I discussed the information I received with SG1I II He decided to call CTC to inquire about the appropriate recipient for this information, regardless of the fact that we were unable to evaluate it's usefulness. CTC recommended that the FBI was the proper recipient and later provided a point of contact there. I called Ed may at about 5:30 PM and speaking to him personally gave him the name of at SG1A SG1J and said he would call. I also told him to send it to Approved For Releas~3/ 6 : CIA-RDP96-00791 R0001 00030036-6 (CTC provided this FBI number). I restated that FBI was the place to send the info. He asked if this would be a "cold call" because he didn't want to sound like a "lunatic." I said it was cold as far as I knew and there was nothing I could do about it without sounding like a kook too. He said he would call tomorrow. I said the FBI was probably working this thing 24 hours a day--call now. He agreed reluctantly at DIA and he said he would.

One aspect of this program is to use trained personnel to perform "remote viewing" in the collection of intelligence against foreign targets. These viewers function somewhat like "psychics" in that they typically allow their thoughts to transcend time and space in order to perform collections against various targets anywhere in the world. Their "product" usually consists of sketches and supplemental bits of information about the target. As a consequence of our involvement in the program review, the contractor recently sent remote viewer information to ORD. The information relates to the Oklahoma City Federal Center bombing. We attach no credibility to this information, and currently have no way to evaluate it. We have asked Dr. Ed May of SAIC to forward this information to you directly. Please direct any questions regarding how the information was acquired to Dr. May. He has been the primary contract investigator in this area, and we have not completed our evaluation of his past efforts. A copy of the remote viewer information is attached.
