Reports circulating in the Kremlin today show a Russian intelligence community rocked by the arrest of 10 ‘psychic’ spies placed into deep-cover in the United States by the Committee for State Security’s (KGB) First Chief Directorate successor Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) in 2000 after what is called the ‘Blue Star’ group discovering the US was soon to be hit with a catastrophic attack, and which, in fact, did occur on September 11, 2001.
According to these reports, and since confirmed by Western news accounts, the American Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) first became aware of the Blue Star group when “on or about January 14, 2000” one of its members named Vicky Pelaez was picked up by their surveillance communicating with her Moscow handlers. The son of Vicky Pelaez, Waldo Mariscal, said his mother and stepfather (Juan Lazaro who was also arrested by the FBI) “are being unfairly accused of espionage” and said the charges against them were “preposterous”.
Though the FBI had captured 10 members of the Blue Star group its purported leader Christopher Metsos was able to flee the United States to Cypress where upon his arrival he was put into custody by the power of an International Police Organization (Interpol) “red notice” issued by the American intelligence community. However, shortly after being detained Metsos was set free on bail of €20,000 ($16,000) in a move said to have left Cypriot police “dumbfounded”.
Russia's Foreign Ministry in publicly responding to these arrests said in a statement that the US actions are unfounded and pursued “unseemly” goals. It further voiced regret that the arrests came even though President Obama has moved to “reset” US relations with Russia and his approval ratings in Russia set a 12-year high for any American leader.
Senior Russian lawmakers have further suggested that the arrest of the Blue Star group stemmed from a conspiracy in the US government to undermine President Obama's efforts to improve relations with Moscow and puts in jeopardy the US-Russia Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty currently before the American Senate for ratification.
Important to note about the US-Russia Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty is that it allows both American and Russian Blue Star type groups to continue operating in each others countries, a fact not being told to the people in the United States as Obama has refused to release the minutes of the treaty negotiations to either the press or the US Senate.
Though the Blue Star group, and other similar type ‘psychic spy’ units, has been one of Russia’s “worst kept secrets” the actual workings of these groups still remain highly classified under penalty of “death for treason” so even if known little can be publicly stated about them.
What can be stated about them though is their origin that began with a Russian girl named Nina Kulagina who is still revered as being the “Mother of Psychic Research” in Russia who rose to prominence due to her incredible psychic powers first identified during the depths of World War II in the battle of Leningrad where she distinguished herself as a hero.
The main function of the Blue Star group was in their ability to do what is commonly referred to as Remote Viewing (RV), which is the ability to gather information about a distant or unseen target using paranormal means, extra-sensory perception (ESP) or sensing with mind.
Not just Russia, but also the United States has been in the forefront of RV and ESP research funded mainly by the efforts of the late US Senator Claiborne Pell (more commonly known for his Pell Grants granting access to collage for millions of Americans) who was deeply concerned over what he termed the “extrasensory perception gap” with the former Soviet Union and earning him the moniker of “Senator Oddball”.
Though scorned, at least publicly, by the American media the same cannot be said of the US Military and intelligence agencies who used the funds appropriated by Senator Pell to begin what is called the Stargate Project.
Now the Stargate Project was the umbrella code name of one of several sub-projects established by the Americans to investigate the reality, and potential military and domestic applications, of psychic phenomena, particularly remote viewing. Projects were said to be active from the 1970s through 1995, and followed up early psychic research done at The Stanford Research Institute (SRI), The American Society for Psychical Research, and other psychical research labs.
Important to note about the Stargate Project is that though being reported to have ended in 1995, documents released in Britain under their Freedom of Information Act shows it was still working with its counterparts in the UK as late as 2002, and FSB reports state it still exists today.
The inside workings of the United States “physic spy” programme has further been detailed by former Stargate member Joseph McMoneagle in his book “Memoirs Of A Psychic Spy” and Jon Ronson in his book (since made into a popular US movie) “The Men Who Stare At Goats”.
Most interesting, and perhaps ominously, are some SVR sources stating that the arrests of the Blue Star “psychic spies” by American intelligence agents is “directly related” to information they had been sending back to the Kremlin about a state of “near total, or all-out, war” expected to begin in the United States after their citizens begin discovering the shocking truth about the catastrophic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico that Obama had this past week warned G20 leaders could kill “millions, if not tens of millions” of these people.
To the final outcome of these events it is not in our knowing other than to state two absolutes: 1.) The US propaganda media will continue lying to Americans about what is really happening; and 2.) The mass of Americans who do stumble upon the truth will say “This can’t be true” and never realizing that the words they use are proof of nothing other than their ignorance.
The Russian President, Dmitry Medvedev, has insisted to President Barack Obama that the spy scandal which saw 11 of his citizens arrested in the US will not affect the relations between the two countries.
The late 1960s and early 1970s were the window in which psychic and occult phenomena moved into the mainstream in American and Western culture. While the Beatles brought the "religion of the East" to Britain, the field of parapsychology began to order itself for more "scientifically-based study."
Parapsychology is divided into several major fields. One is extrasensory perception or ESP, which deals with information obtained by means beyond the five senses. Another is psychokinesis -- the direct mental interaction with inanimate or animate objects. Yet another involves so-called "near-death experiences" or NDEs.
In 1970, during the height of the Cold War and under the growing threat of Soviet world domination, American authors Sheila Ostrander and Lynn Schroeder published a startling book called "Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain." They documented how the Soviets had recruited clairvoyants, psychics, psychokinetic wonderkids and telepathic savants to work in the realm of espionage, counter-intelligence and related security applications.
The book got the attention of the U.S. military complex. So much so, that by 1972 the Defense Intelligence Agency had produced a paper called "Controlled Offensive Behavior -- USSR."
The paper read in part, "The major impetus behind the Soviet drive to harness the possible capabilities of telepathic communication, telekinetics and bionics are said to come from the Soviet military and the KGB. Soviet knowledge in this field is superior to that of the West."
Fearing that using "asymmetrical" intelligence-gathering personnel like psychic spies might enable the Russians to take a huge lead in the espionage field, the DIA believed the Soviets might be able to learn the whereabouts of U.S. troops and ships, analyze top secret documents, read the thoughts of top U.S. leaders, perform psychic assassinations and even disable spacecraft and satellites.
It was in this climate that the Pentagon launched its own psychic intelligence-gathering program -- headed up by INSCOM, the U.S. Army's Intelligence and Security Command.
Finding the right person to lead a project for such a new frontier was a difficult task. The man chosen was Hal Puthoff, a respected engineer who had the security clearance, background in hard science and training to handle the project.
Working out of Fort Meade, Maryland, Puthoff began recruiting a team of "remote viewers," composed of military personnel, who would participate in the radical new program. The billions of dollars spent on satellites, the labors of the CIA and other agencies, and the intelligence shared with the U.S. by her allies abroad was suddenly jolted by this new, radical approach to espionage.

One thing confuses me about that. From what I read, something that set the FBI on their trail was a message from Moscow with their instructions in it? I saw them message on CNN the other day. Anyways...You'd think if they were "Psychic Spies" they could just use telepathy to send messages to a Psychic "receiver" back in Moscow?

WOW man thanks for posting this. Have you seen the Hopi prophecy? Blue star is one of the sighns of the re birth of the earth acording to them, and that was the next sigh. Something to look into.
uri Malin, a former KGB officer, says that there was a special department in the structure of Russian secret services to protect top officials from malicious intentions of scientists and extrasensory individuals, who could create devices that were capable of affecting human psychology. Yuri Malin worked as a consultant of Boris Yeltsin's Federal Security Service.
”Special services do not take much care of President Putin nowadays. There are no professionals in his team to help him struggle with the external psychophysical influence. There were such people in Boris Yeltsin's team, though. There was a special department, which was dealing with unconventional technologies to manipulate the human mind,” Malin says.
Americans have created radiators of modulated signals, which control people's behavior thousands of kilometers from afar
