It was hard to take this seriously. Then I got to the third picture and its caption and couldn't read any more. Almost literally ROFL!

He's about as much a psychic spy as I am riding this walrus to meet the Queen.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is at least a grain of truth in this - even if his assignments involved disinformation or more traditional intelligence gathering. Many famous performers, including Calvert and purportedly Houdini were involved at one point or another with intelligence gathering. Historically, many international performers have been secretly employed by governments. Even Julia Child was a spy!

Truth be told, so was I when I worked for the NSG subdivision of NSA back in the late 60's/early 70's.

Good thoughts,

Bob

Perhaps he's a spy for the Hoovans?

I have little or no doubt that just about any country would pay a fortune for someone with the ability to bend the controls of a nuclear missile ....Think about it...LOL

From what I've read there were a fair number of people in the U.S. intelligence community
who genuinely believed in Geller's psychic abilities. A fair bit of the funding for his work ar SRI came from the C.I.A. so no surprise if they actually tried to use him for real-life operations.

Of course they would. But what's worrying is that these so called intelligence agencies wasted time & money on this in the first place. That doesn't strike me as very intelligent at all.

Fascinating Bob! Any stories you can share or is it still secret. Smile

No cloak and dagger stuff, Sean. NSG was the Naval Security Group, whose primary task was electronic intelligence gathering. Mostly just sitting around in compounds circled by antenna arrays, or aboard ships, listening, decrypting intercepted messages, triangulating positions, and forwarding them to Virginia.

Then there was John Mulholland who was paid ($3000) by the CIA to write a manual on "misdirection, concealment and stagecraft," only recently rediscovered and declassified, all copies thought to have been destroyed in 1973.

In 1949 a secret project was started and then scrapped, the plan was for extraordinary people from all over the world to be brought together to fight the battles the police and the army could not.

In 1972 a shadowy figure known only as codename Jim Rage met with Roald Dahl one of the junior Spy's from the original project with the plan to start it up again.

They contacted any members from the ordinal team that were still alive and teamed them up with new members.

This is the team they formed.

Strategy devision
Stephen Hawkins, creating plans and relaying reports gathered from their secret space station, as well as reverse engineering 'captured technology' for human use. Noted members of his team included Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Tim Berners-Lee.

Psy devision
Uri Gellar and Sylvia Browne, dealing with 'long distance interrogation, infiltration, intelligence gathering and sabotage.' They both soon defected from the team, sensing that the groups combined ego's along with the still mostly misunderstood tech they were using would lead to world disaster.

Shadow devision.
Bruce Lee and Lee harvey Oswald, declared dead and thus able to move freely on ground missions dealing with long distance and close up hostile engagement, and assassination.

Seduction and intelligence gathering devision
Elvis Presley, he actually only got on this team through Nixon's instance, but proved useful under Roald Dahls tutelage.

Together they formed a group designed as a deterrent against the secret invasion that's been happening since 1947. If they could not stop the threat they would get revenge.

They were

Interesting stuff, Bob. In the 1980s, I worked for the ASA (Army Security Agency), which was a subdivision of the NSA. Pretty much the same as the NSG, but I focused mostly on telephone conversations and radio transmissions in Europe. "The Enemy is Listening" was our motto.

Yes, ASA and NSG were really doing the same things. Both COMINT and ELINT. I was involved primarily with the latter.
