David Morehouse -
President, Remote Viewing Technologies
Major, U.S. Army, Retired

David Morehouse entered the military remote viewing unit in 1998. His application was reviewed by Paul H. Smith, who was also a Mormon. Smith felt that Morehouse would make a good addition to the program. However, in 1994, a complaint was filed against Morehouse, which lead to the filing of a court marshall against him. The charges consisted of assault, communicating a threat, sodomy, adultery (with his enlisted driver's wife among several others), larceny, and multiple conduct unbecoming charges. At this time, Morehouse checked himself into Walter Reed Army Medical Center. He and his lawyers claimed that his participation with remote viewing drove him "over the edge." Morehouse's literary agent began telling stories about Morehouse and herself being harassed by government personnel. Morehouse's defense strategy was to expose the existence of the military's classified remote viewing program, which would have been potentially embarrassing to many in the U.S. government. He was allowed to resign from the military with a less than honorable discharge. He authored the book, "Psychic Warrior", which is regarded as being highly fictionalized. Later, Morehouse received a Doctorate via an unaccredited mail-order school.

More On Morehouse...

Ed Dames brought Dave Morehouse into the DIA's Remote Viewing unit during its latter days and worked with him for a short period until he discovered Morehouse's unsavory past and fired him from the ranks of PSI TECH. Morehouse went on to try to change the history about remote viewing in a book that Jim Marrs was writing about the PSI SPY unit. Morehouse left his wife to move in with the literary book agent who had put together the book deal to be released by Random House. However, when Dames (who was then living with Joni Dourif) discovered that Morehouse had manipulated the story by transposing himself into the role of Dames and then portrayed Dames as "the bad guy" - Dames had the book stopped in the galleys. The Random House deal to write the story had originally been struck between Jim Marrs and Ed dames. But Morehouse didn't give up, he then wrote a spin-off version and called it "Psychic Warrior" which eventually got published by Saint Martins Press. He severely dramatized the story in order to try to get a movie deal but the book was only about 20% factual. In reality, Morehouse was court marshalled out of the army on sodomy & theft charges subsequently there was no movie deal in the cards for Mr. Morehouse!

In 1999, remote viewer Paul H. Smith criticized Morehouse's "PhD" from LaSalle:

"To get a Ph.D. diploma from LaSalle, all you needed was to send them transcripts of your previous education, write a thirty-page paper on any topic you wanted (believe it or not, this requirement was waiveable), pay them anywhere up to around 2000 bucks, and they would send you your diploma through the mail in a minimum elapsed time of about two weeks. Apparently a number of federal and state employees who needed advanced degrees to qualify for promotion were availing themselves of this short cut to "higher education." But as I said, the "president" of the "university" is now in jail for mail fraud, and a number of those civil servants who patronized the establishment for the bogus degrees it offered are themselves under investigation."

In a 1996, Morehouse's book Psychic Warrior was reviewed by Col. John Alexander U.S. Army (Retired). Alexander originally sat on Psi Tech's board of directors and was formerly a senior aid to Major General Albert Stubblebine, commander of the Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). Alexander wrote:

"The accounts in his book are, at best, a highly fictionalized version of events that transpired. After attending Command and General Staff College, he reported to the 82d Airborne Division. The following year he was brought up on a number of very serious charges leading to recommendation for a General Court Marshal. Eventually, now Major Morehouse was allowed to resign, with a less than honorable discharge, for the good of the Army in lieu of the court marshal. While he does report this in the book, he totally glosses over the nature and seriousness of the allegations that include, assault, communicating a threat, sodomy, adultery (with his enlisted driver's wife among several others), larceny, and multiple conduct unbecoming charges. Additional charges were pending at the time of his discharge."

"The fact is this book is the epitome of hypocrisy. Morehouse, encouraged by St. Martins Press, has hit a series of topical "hot buttons" including, angels, Government assassination conspiracies, and Gulf War syndrome, family values, and wrapped them in the American flag. There is abject disregard for truth. Do not buy this book. If you must read it, borrow it from library."

"Complete detail about the Morehouse investigation are available via the Freedom of Information Act. You may contact Ms. Virginia Grenier at Ft Bragg, NC and get a complete transcript. She may be reached at (910) 396-5158, & 4840 (fax). You should know there are between 700 and 900 pages."

In a 1997 interview, Morehouse retaliated against Alexander. His allegations of Alexander having "no friends" in the remote viewing community are false, and more accurately describe Morehouse's own position in the remote viewing field:

"I met him (Alexander) through Ed Dames who was his friend. John Alexander used to meet with Ed Dames in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Ed Dames was convinced that there were aliens underground in New Mexico. And so began an abuse of tax dollars-buying plane tickets to Albuquerque whenever he wanted."

"Ed Dames was part of Torn Image and he would fly out there. He would meet with John Alexander who would hand him a photograph and try to do some remote viewing."

"With the exception of Jim Schnabel and Ed Dames, John Alexander has no friends in the remote-viewing community. Most think he's a shyster except for guys like Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff, who are still drawing government paychecks. They were both laser physicists, the original takers of Central Intelligence Agency money to work for remote-viewing projects."

In 2000, Paul H. Smith commented on David Morehouse and his book Psychic Warrior:

"Please don't take too much of what Dave Morehouse says in his book and his interviews too seriously. There are very good reasons why he is odd-man-out in the RV community--many of them similar reasons to why Ed Dames is, too."


In 1996, Jim Schnabel, author of "Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America's Psychic Spies" wrote:

"To tag every piece of fiction in the Morehouse book would mean commenting on virtually every page. Indeed, both Mel Riley and Lyn Buchanan remember Morehouse telling them that they were not to worry, the whole thing was going to be a novel anyway. Or perhaps, as Ed Dames says, a screenplay, for there is lengthy screenplayish dialogue throughout, and the entire thing seems calculated to push all the New Age and X-Files conspiracy buttons in the Hollywood version of reality, from the repeated appearance of an angel to the cynical falsehood that the DIA was using remote viewers to monitor US troops' chemical weapons exposure in the Gulf War."

Morehouse currently lives in Sweden and trains individuals both ERV and CRV via workshops for his company Remote Viewing Technologies.
