Is Uri Geller a CIA Masterspy?

For over 60 years, spanning from his childhood to the Cold War to the current day, former Israeli paratrooper, Six Day War veteran and psychic Uri Geller has been a enigma. To many, he is an entertainer, a crackpot, a Hollywood hanger-on. Now, with his major new biography, journalist Jonathan Margolis takes us behind the scenes of Geller's public life to reveal his undercover work for the CIA, NSA, Mossad and the FBI.

It is well known that from the early 1970s through to the mid-1990s, the CIA funded research into extrasensory perception, remote viewing, out-of-body experiences, and other psychic phenomenon. Who better to recruit than Uri Geller? His psychic abilities were repeatedly tested and verified by the Stanford Research Institute in California, and in one propaganda video, now available online, Geller is in an SRI conference room drawing a copy of a picture that has been hidden in a sealed envelope by an agent.

In The Secret Life of Uri Geller , the seasoned journalist Jonathan Margolis traces hints left by Geller to tell the true story of how a poor boy from a broken family in the back streets of Tel Aviv went from being a playground sensation with strange powers to a bizarre player in the Superpower mind games of the 1970s, and who was later 'reactivated' after 9/11 for the notorious War on Terror.
