Uri Geller’s Life As A Psychic Spy For The CIA And Mossad Revealed

Did you know there was a Cold War “psychic arms race”? Geoffrey Macnab writes in the Independent:

Showbiz psychic Uri Geller has seemingly had a lengthy second career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA. Geller was at the Sheffield Doc Fest this week for the premiere of Vikram Jayanti’s The Secret Life Of Uri Geller – Psychic Spy?, a new film that offers compelling evidence of his involvement in the shadowy world of espionage.

In interview, Geller remains coy about his espionage activities. Nonetheless, the psychic acknowledges that his handlers once asked him to use telepathy to stop a pig’s heart. He refused, knowing that if he had succeeded, the next target would almost certainly have been a human. “I tried to execute missions that were positive,” Geller claims. “I said ‘no’ to dark things.”

Jayanti spoke to the high-level officials involved in recruiting and using Geller. These include scientists from The Stanford Research Institute as well as senior CIA operatives. Among the interviewees with first hand knowledge of Geller’s psychic spying activities are former CIA officer Kit Green, Apollo 14 astronaut Edgar Mitchell (the sixth man to walk on the moon), physicists Russell Targ and Hal Puthoff, and retired US army colonel John Alexander (of The Men Who Stared At Goats fame).

The doc provides so much background evidence that we are left in little doubt that even its most outlandish assertions are rooted in truth. Whether or not Geller had psychic powers, US security forces were certainly prepared to take a very hefty wager on him.

It is inferred that Geller attempted to use his psychic powers to disable radar during the “raid on Entebbe,” when Israeli commandos stormed a hijacked plane. The spoon bender also used his mind powers to try erase the contents of floppy discs being carried back to Russia by Soviet diplomats in Mexico and to convince a Russian minister to sign a nuclear arms reduction treaty.

Jayanti’s thesis is that Geller was recruited as the US security forces were caught up in “psychic arms race” with their Soviet rivals, who were almost certainly bluffing about the strength of their own psychic warriors.

    LOL. My guess is that the so-called “psychic” [SIC] Uri Geller, refused to
    use telepathy to stop a pig’s heart, because he knew that he would never in a million years succeed.

      Occam’s razor FTW?

    • gustave courbet

      You may well be right about Geller. Such fringe subjects are magnets for fraudsters, but I would recommend looking at the work Russell Targ did at the Stanford Research Institute. Targ was a pioneering physicist and did some of the early work on lasers and spent years doing some pretty rigorous research on PSI phenomena. You can find interviews he did on youtube.

    Anyone remember that video of Geller using a thumb tip?

  • DrDavidKelly

    He said ‘no’ to dark things – I’m sure that would have been acceptable to the CIA and Mossad.

    Yes…and yet, this happened: When I was a young whippersnapper, maybe 15 years back. Uri Geller made an appearance on a local news show. (I heard about this from my parents later that night). To cut to the chase, at the end of the show he asked everyone watching at home to suspend disbelief about “the power of the mind” or some such and to find something in the house that had been broken and place it on the tv and at a given moment to exclaim the word “Work!” at his say so.
    So may dad was a little tipsy at the time after Sunday lunch and very much out of character,decided to give it a go and hey presto, a clock of his that had been broken since the 60’s started working again…not only that, even the date corrected itself.

    Now my father is the most skeptical science minded rational materialist fellow one could hope to come across and he spent the next few weeks taking apart and putting together that clock as he couldn’t place what had happened in any framework of what he considered to be “reality”. If I ask him about it all now, he has actually forgotten the whole incident happened for that very same reason, but I remember it well and it started me on a rather curious life path for which I am most grateful…. So I am reluctant to just call the dude a charlatan… Something certainly happened on that day

      The dude was thoroughly debunked on many different occasions by many different people in many different manners. And he was caught dead to rights making shit up. He has never managed to accomplish anything that an illusionist couldn’t accomplish. Now maybe the supernatural is real. Maybe there are psychics. But if there are, Uri Gellar probably ain’t one of em.

      • jnana

        even if he was debunked and did fake a lot of the time, he may have still had some “power”. it isn’t scientific, b/c it isn’t exactly repeatable and always accurate. but its anomalous and reveals the chaotic. from which the ordered came about.

        • bobbiethejean

          This isn’t even a matter of science, it’s a matter of BS. Anyone can make shit up. It is really easy. I have 5 people so thoroughly convinced that I am psychic, ALL FIVE of them still believe it even after I told them I am NOT a psychic. I explained that I am intuitive, good at reading people, and good at predicting outcomes but they STILL refuse to accept that I am not psychic. And this isn’t one person. Not two. Not three…. but FIVE. FIVE PEOPLE. What does this tell you? It tells me that people really, really, really want to believe, even in the FACE of PROOF that they are wrong, they will cling to their beliefs.

          • Andrew

            You gotta get more things wrong. Maybe that’ll convince `em.

    • DrMalus

      Pretty much the same thing happened to me, except that is was a walkman.

  • nubwaxer

    can i interest you in some lovely mountain ski property in florida?
    uri was easily proven to be just an entertainer with no real psychic abilities. psychics are all fakes, phonies, fools and frauds.

  • VaudeVillain

    I suddenly feel the strangest sensation, as if my very mind is being influenced by Uri Gellar in a profound and unexpected way. I feel compelled to say things I would not, under normal circumstances, ever really say.

    This is criminal government waste and fraud, throw the bums out I’ve been taxed enough already. Don’t Tread On Me.

    Fuck. That was weird.

  • jnana

    whats cool about this is it reveals the weakness of the power of the military. I think uri geller might of had some powers, even if he was a charlatan. but there are spiritual masters w/ even greater powers, and there are even those who are invincible.
