The United States uses body language experts to analyze foreign leaders writes Ray Locker:

  • The program is called “Body Leads” and $300,000 has been spent on it since 2009.
  • The researchers behind the project believe that each individual’s body language is as unique as their DNA and can be used to better understand the true intentions of foreign leaders.
  • Vladimir Putin, for example, walks in an odd way that indicates “a strong will that he survive and an impetus to balance and strengthen the body….this is a deep, old, profound loss that he has learned to cope with, magnificently”
