Uri Geller, the world-renowned mentalist, paranormal expert and spoon bender, has had a life in front of the cameras, a life surrounded by controversy, a life dotted with amazing psychic demonstrations, and a life being doubted by sceptics.
Scientists who have studied him say he has a phenomenal gift, others insist that it all a clever show.
But most people didn’t know that, away from the bent cutlery and broken watches, he had been leading a second, covert, life as a ‘psychic spy’, working secretly, and without recognition for nearly thirty years.
This ‘secret life’ included work for the CIA, the Pentagon, the Mossad, the Mexican Treasury Department and the NYPD.
It is, by all accounts, a remarkable story of a man who is universally known for his metal bending and celebrity antics. Geller has always been largely reluctant to talk about the details of what went on at SRI and his work with the Pentagon, until now.
