Pentagon Tracking Movements of Another World Leader

Posted March 10, 2014 at 9:23am

“A Pentagon program that analyzes the body movements of world leaders to predict their actions is scheduled to issue a report on an unnamed leader in the fall,” USA Today reports.  

Researchers for the Body Leads project “have studied the movements of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Rear Adm. John Kirby, spokesman for Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, said Friday the project conducted studies of Putin in 2008 and 2012 but is not studying him now.”  

“Since 1996, the researchers have examined 15 world leaders, Kirby said, including Putin, former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein and al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. No Americans have been studied.”
