A new documentary claims the showbiz psychic is involved in global espionage - and that after 9/11 he was íreactivatedí as a pyschic spy.
We may know him for spoon bending antics and for his lengthy friendship with pop star Michael Jackson but showbiz psychic Uri Geller has seemingly had a lengthy second career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA, albeit one that was more Austin Powers than James Bond.
Geller was at the Sheffield Doc Fest this week for the premiere of Vikram Jayantiís The Secret Life Of Uri Geller Ė Psychic Spy?, a new film that offers compelling evidence of his involvement in the shadowy world of espionage.
ďUri has a controversial reputation. A lot of people think he is a fraud, a lot of people think he is a trickster and makes things up but at the same time he has a huge following and a history of doing things that nobody can explain,Ē Jayanti says of his Zelig-like subject.
Speaking to The Independent, Geller acknowledged alarm when he first saw Jayantiís documentary.
ďI was worried and I am still concerned,Ē Geller said of the way the documentary outs him as a spy. ďI didnít realise that Vikram was going to do such a thorough job of tying all the loose endsÖmaking that the little hints I dropped throughout my career were real.Ē
When he signed up for the doc, the psychic didnít realise quite how diligently Jayanti would track down his old spy masters. Nonetheless, he is happy that the doc is showing ďa serious sideĒ to him. ďSome countries think I am a freak, bizarre, an eccentric,Ē he sighs.
On camera and in interview, Geller still remains coy about his espionage activities. Nonetheless, the psychic acknowledges that his handlers once asked him to use telepathy to stop a pigís heart. He refused, knowing that if he had succeeded, the next target would almost certainly have been a human.
ďI tried to execute missions that were positive,Ē Geller claims. ďI said Ďnoí to dark things.Ē
Jayanti didnít rely on Gellerís own cryptic testimony. Instead, he spoke to the high-level officials involved in recruiting and using him. These include scientists from The Stanford Research Institute as well as senior CIA operatives. Among the interviewees with first hand knowledge of Gellerís 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). A Brit, Nick Pope, once the British Governmentís UFO boffin, also puts in an appearance. We also learn about Gellerís stint as a psychic bodyguard for Mexican President Jose Lopez Portillo.
The doc leaves a question mark in its title but 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 ďraid on Entebbe,Ē when Israeli commandos stormed a hijacked plane.
