Scientists have discovered how to decode human brainwaves and intelligence agencies are rubbing their hands.

In possibly the greatest potential breakthrough for spy agencies, mind-reading machines are about to become a reality.

According to research published in the online journal Public Library of Science Biology, a machine that can process and display visual brain signals is within science’s grasp.

 The claim is based on research undertaken by scientists at the University of Glasgow. The tests were conducted on a group of volunteers that were shown images of randomly selected human faces reacting with various emotions like astonishment, contentment, joy, anger and fear. As part of the experiment, the images of the faces were partially covered so only parts of the face—eyes and mouths—were discernible.

The subjects were tasked to name the emotion they saw on the images of faces. As they did, electrode sensors monitored their brainwaves. The brain activity crossed a wide spectrum and changed significantly as Read more…

The CIA declined comment. Read more…

While all eyes in the West are currently trained on the ongoing revolution taking place in Egypt, Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) is warning that the situation on the sub-continent has turned “grave” as it appears open warfare is about to break out between Pakistan and the United States.

Fueling this crisis, that the SVR warns in their report has the potential to ignite a total Global War, was the apprehension by Pakistan of a 36-year-old American named Raymond Allen Davis (photo), whom the US claims is one of their diplomats, but Pakistani Intelligence Services (ISI) claim is a spy for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Davis was captured by Pakistani police after he shot and killed two men in the eastern city of Lahore on January 27th that the US claims were trying to rob him.

Pakistan, however, says that the two men Davis killed were ISI agents sent to follow him after it was discovered he had been making contact with al Qaeda after his cell phone was tracked to the Waziristan tribal area bordering Afghanistan where the Pakistani Taliban and a dozen other militant groups have forged a Read more…
