The Open Minds Forum and Gordon Novel CIA Documents

Are you looking for the Open Minds Forum and the Gordon Novel CIA documents mentioned by George Knapp on Coast to Coast AM on January 17th, 2010? Well, you’ve come to the right place! You’ll find it all here.

As I was listening to Coast to Coast AM last night, when George Knapp was interviewing Gordon Novel from about 1am to 3am, I noticed at one point George mentioned the intriguing Gordon Novel CIA documents that we originally wrote about here at RealityUncovered on October 27th of last year.

I was very surprised to hear George mention these documents – because not only were they brought to light by one of our sources and originally noted here at RealityUncovered and recently on Jack Sarfatti’s email list, but also because those documents revealed that not only did Gordon Novel not ever have any affiliation with the CIA, but the CIA was actively trying to figure out why this convicted arsonist kept telling people that he was working with or for the agency.

What Does Open Minds Forum Have to do With the Gordon Novel CIA Documents?

My surprise was mostly due to the fact that I was doubting all week whether George would take Gordon Novel to task for what the facts on these documents reveals – that Gordon Novel was attempting to pawn his various technology schemes not only upon individual investors, but even upon the U.S. government. When Knapp mentioned the documents, my heart raced – was our source listening, the man who originally discovered the repository of online documents where these Gordon Novel CIA documents resided?

Only a small part of me was somewhat interested to hear how George would refer to the documents, which Jack Sarfatti had been mentioning all week as he forwarded our original Gordon Novel expose to his entire list, noting how RealityUncovered had revealed this amazing library of Gordon Novel CIA documents. Surely Knapp would at least briefly mention the RealityUncovered Gordon Novel expose that Jack forwarded, and ask Novel to respond?

George Knapp’s Strange Promotional Decisions

Earlier in the show, Knapp promoted Gary Bekkum as a good source to learn more about Ron Pandolfi. I blinked a couple of times at that…I could think of hundreds of better resources – but I digress. Bekkum and I have resolved our differences regarding evidence and not jumping to conclusions in published articles, and ultimately Gary does work very hard to uncover the truth, however he sees it. Ultimately, Gary really has published more online about Ron Pandolfi (especially in various code-named forms) than most anyone else online.

However, what came next was rather shocking. George Knapp mentioned the CIA documents again, and stated they came from the Open Minds Forum. I blinked a couple of times. Say what?

I immediately emailed Sarfatti, cc’d Steve and George Knapp, and mentioned the strange choice of promotion – why would Knapp mention the OM Forum in relation to these documents? An obscure website that had no content published about these topics until we originally published our findings on Gordon Novel in October of last year.

George immediately responded with an apology for the slip-up and immediately fixed the error on-the-air. Apparently he was monitoring email traffic during the show, and his sincere response told me that his slip-up had nothing to do with more sinister motives – for some reason he had been misinformed or just didn’t dig very deeply into these matters.

After sleeping on it, this morning as I was snowblowing my driveway (a time when I really have some major deep thoughts), I realized what must have happened. Unlike the OM Forum, the first priority of investigators here at RealityUncovered is to make sure that the truth is revealed. Self-promotion doesn’t really make the top-ten – we just want the real story published and out there. But I have a suspicion as to what happened last week when Knapp first announced his show.

The Open Minds Forum PR Effort

For those of you who don’t know, the Open Minds Forum is a very small conspiracy theory forum. It originated as one guy’s website covering the topic of psychic phenomenon, but grew a little after the whole Serpo affair left AboveTopSecret and the believers (and quite a few nutjobs) needed a new home. In fact, it was the new home for Steve and I for a while, until we realized that the truth could not be uncovered there, because there’s no one actively researching the truth – they simply regurgitate information that they find elsewhere on the web, as happened in this case.

The sad part of this episode is that after Knapp announced his interview with Gordon Novel, I suspect Gary Bekkum and the Open Minds Forum jumped into high gear with their self-promotions…forwarding Knapp various links from their own websites.

Meanwhile, not thinking about self-promotion but making sure Knapp truly dug into Gordon Novel’s background so that he’d ask the hard questions, I told Knapp as much – to his displeasure, obviously. Never, once, did I think of simply self-promoting by sending him links from our own website.

So, for those of you who heard the show and are looking for the OM Forum link to the CIA Gordon Novel documents, you’ve come to the right place – because they’re actually right here at RealityUncovered. And you can discuss this entire matter in all of its great drama at our Forums…we look forward to seeing you there. It is one place where you can be sure to cut through the b.s. and learn the truth.

We will have a full review of the interview, and our response to a few of Gordon Novel’s statements, in an upcoming article this week.
