I asked him to relay to their DIA Congressional Office contract the essence of the meeting, sensitive part (what each Senator thinks) and to add that Mr. D'Amato told us that DIA had not done the foreign assessment work and had assigned the SG 1J people to inferior jobs. I called C/DIA personnel today to advise that we had been asked by Mr. D'Amato to consider temporary assignments for the people to work on one aspect of this activity. She indicated they had been assigned to DIA jobs, that DIA considered them gainfully employed, and that she understood it might take us some time to resolve the issues. FAX: STARGATE (Remote Viewing Program) Briefing for SAC Staffer Dick D'Amato Mr. D'Amato believes CIA is making a good faith effort and understands no decisions will be made until the "blue-ribbon" panel reports in late September. Mr. D'Amato is concerned with the reaction of four Senators and the fate of the DIA personnel assigned to the program. He will SG1 I call Ito discuss an option, pending the study results, o the DIA viewers eing offered a rotational assignment to CIA studying foreign remote viewing. He believes the STARGATE staff is being poorly used at DIA. raised, and Mr. D'Amato understands, the problems of "raising false hopes" that might accompany such an assignment. Mr. D'Amato says Sen. Pell is a true believer but is retiring; Sen. Inouye is interested but won't intervene; Sen. Cohen is very interested by not publicly; and Sen. Glenn is interested enough that he might write a letter supporting continued research. The CIA/DS&T delegation gave an excellent, balanced overview of the project: The "blue-ribbon" scientific panel assessment that CIA Is sponsoring will be completed by 30 September 1995. CIA indicated it will abide by the results of that effort concerning the future of this program. We believe we have formed a credible panel of experts under the study being managed by American Institutes of Research. CIA prefers that the DIA personnel associated the STARGATE program remain in DIA until the completion of the assessment.
