Jon Ronson's tweets from just after the show are interesting (@jonronson).

I think it was the strangest programme I've ever seen. Absolutely no idea if even one single shred of it was true, or the whole damn thing. Whatever the truth about Geller and the claims made, he is undoubtedly a fantastic performer. Not a flicker across that face of his.

BTW - anyone believing that Uri must be lying cos the CIA would never take him seriously has the wrong opinion of the CIA.

 

So if people want Uri/CIA facts, this is what I know:

1. They tested him. Cos just because you're in the CIA doesn't mean you aren't nuts.

2. Also, it's really appropriate for the CIA and Gov Intelligence to try out these nutty things. It's an appropriate part of their remit.

3. Cos if they don't go all the way out of the box they won't find amazing real life things.

4. So they tested Uri but thought he was a too much of a stage magician so they didn't invite him to be part of the program. However...

5. Uri still has fans within the intel community, stalwarts who believe in the paranormal.

6. And it's totally reasonable and non-conspiracy theorist to believe that they called him after 9/11 and requested his psychic divinations.

 

Not the CIA as an entity but individuals - like Col. Alexander and this Ron Pandolfi. That's what I know.

 

When I say it's appropriate for the military to try out nutty things, I'm thinking of projects that may not exist without them...  ...like the high visibility jacket. That I believe was invented by a stage magician but funded by the US military.

Why did it remind me of the film "the men who stare at goats"?


Even men with steel hearts love to see a dog on the pitch.
