SACRAMENTO, Calif. /Publishers Newswire/ — Finally, after several decades of secrecy, an unusual and compelling true story of deception and subterfuge is finally told. This book is an in-depth look at one man’s harrowing experience with the United States Government as a Psychic Spy. Now, 40 years later, Philip Chabot finally tells his story with his new book, OPERATION BLUE LIGHT: My Secret Life Among Psychic Spies (Cherubim Publishing / September 2008 / $26.95 / 294 pages).

In the 1960’s, Chabot feels there was a definite conspiracy where the American government took advantage of a select group of people who had ESP. The government used and took advantage of these victims as spies and guinea pigs to find out about what other countries were up to. Chabot was one of them.

“By governmental manipulation I started taking part in telepathic discussions over the phone,” reveals Chabot. “On one fateful night I would face a lengthy ‘debriefing’ and testing by agents from the FBI, CIA, and military intelligence.”

Traditional methods of gathering intelligence include using satellites, intercepting communications and recruiting agents. Now, secret documents have emerged revealing that the Ministry of Defense ran a covert project to recruit psychic during the Cold War in the hope of tracking down people and items of interest to the government and the military.

The use of psychic spies may still be happening today. Most recently, by the 1990s, it was revealed that the Pentagon continued to employ a highly classified team of “psychic spies.”

Not to be ignored, the book, written with esteemed author Laurie Anne Blanchard, shows us that a person truly isn’t paranoid when someone really is out to get them. This true story also reveals what it is like to be psychic, and that this “talent” isn’t always a gift.
