Case Scenario for National Security
One prominent case involving counter- terrorism and national security where Brain Fingerprinting could have been applied to prevent a major terrorist attack – but unfortunately was not applied – was the Boston Marathon bombing case.
The FBI questioned Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the alleged Boston Marathon bomber, in 2011 following a tip from the Russian FSB. The FBI reportedly concluded that there was insufficient evidence linking him to terrorist groups, bomb making, etc. to take action.
Although it remained undetected, however, whatever information Tsarnaev had regarding his links to terrorist groups and bomb-making knowledge was in fact stored in his brain. If he had had this information on his computer, it would have been easy to detect. We could simply have scanned his hard drive and detected whatever information he had. This information was, however, not on his hard drive – it was stored in his brain. To detect this we need more sophisticated technology. In research conducted at the FBI, the CIA, the US Navy, and elsewhere and published in the leading scientific journals, as well as in real-world criminal cases, Brain Fingerprinting has proven over 99% accurate in detecting just this kind of concealed information stored in the brain.
Brain Fingerprinting has proven over 99% accurate in detecting information that is unique to bomb makers, and also in detecting inside knowledge or training associated with particular organizations (such as a terrorist group or cell). For example, Brain Fingerprinting successfully detected the record of FBI-relevant knowledge in FBI agents in every case tested.
If Brain Fingerprinting had been applied in the Tamerlan Tsarnaev case in 2011, when there was unconfirmed suspicion that he had ties to terrorist groups, it would have been possible to detect this information, thus potentially averting the Boston Marathon bombing and the devastation and loss of life and property that it entailed.
