In Farah’s defense, she’s obviously not privvy to the research being done in classified intelligence circles. “Mind Reading” per say is not being researched through advances in imaging technology. Historically, its been researched through radio frequency modalities. Currently, the University of California at Irvine is studying synthetic telepathy where war-fighters may communicate via thought with each other in the field. One would assume that the technology has been reasonably well defined unidirectionally if they are looking for the ability to network it between individuals. Also historically, the US has a bad habit of testing now and apologizing later with regard to non-consensual experimentation. I assume the thousands of victims of this research can expect their apology around 2030! That’s about how long it took to see an apology for Tuskegee, Guatemala and the radiation experiments!
