The fictional character Jason Bourne is a covert intelligence operative who survives an intense mind control “reprogramming” process to become a government assassin. After being shot while on an assassination mission, he forgets his identity and tries to rediscover his true past. That’s the storyline of the Bourne series of motion pictures.
Last week, a possible real-life Jason Bourne awoke in a motel room. While his I.D. revealed he was a U.S. Navy veteran named Michael Boatwright, he awoke without any memory of being able to speak English whatsoever. He now speaks Swedish and insists his name is Johan Ek.
