Was Uri Geller a spy ?

Posted on Tuesday, 18 June, 2013 | Comment icon 24 comments

Famed psychic spoon-bender Uri Geller also had a career as a secret agent for Mossad and the CIA.

The remarkable revelation is the basis for a new documentary by Vikram Jayanti entitled "The Secret Life Of Uri Geller – Psychic Spy?". Premiered at the Sheffield Doc Fest this week, the film explores the concept that Geller was involved in the world of spying and espionage. Geller himself provided information to Jayanti but was admittedly surprised at how deeply the matter was investigated.

"I was worried and I am still concerned," he said. "I didn’t realise that Vikram was going to do such a thorough job of tying all the loose ends…making that the little hints I dropped throughout my career were real."

"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."

no one saw the documentary? i saw it. and there is video of Uri from the beginning of his career, if you can call it that, performing advanced psychic abilities during testing by the military. say what you want about him but he's earned millions doing whatever it is that he does. if you have seen the original video footage and then comment would make alot more sense to everyone. could all be fake, could all be real or part real or is real what we truly believe (up to you to decide).

and he wasn't just bending spoons in the documentary although that is what he is known for but not what he really does (misconception).

. Uri Geller is a colourful character...but he is not a fake...and I don't suppose his 'talents' would go to waste in regards to being a psychic spy.. this is the first part of experiments done with him at Stanford Research Institute in 1972...

. Put.....The Secret Life of Uri Geller...into the search banner on YouTube, to watch the documentary aired by the BBC... Lol at the car covered in spoons. Uri has a sense of humour..... The military and Intelligence services play down anything to do with psychic spying and the such-like...IMO. But they would certainly use anything they could to get an edge over the 'enemy'.... Not to do so would be a dereliction of duty in regards to National Defence. So I believe Uri when he says he was re-activated as a psychic spy after 9/11. .
