Open Letter to Jeff Rense
can become angry - that is easy. But to be angry
with the right person, to the right degree, at
the right time, for the right reasons, and in the
right way - that is not easy. [Aristotle]
update is written by myself, Bill Ryan. I've not consulted
my friend and colleague Kerry Cassidy - you will see
why if you read on below. And please, having started,
do read it all.
I'm angry, which doesn't often happen.
Last night, this anonymous article was published by Jeff
Rense on his site. We had always regarded Jeff as an
ally, and would like to continue to do so. Please read
it carefully if you have not already done so.
Fitting every description
of a smear piece [anonymity, vague accusations, intention
to discredit, no references or valid informational content,
the reader left feeling that something has happened but
is not sure what] ...we were surprised where it came
Kerry and I are supporters
of Jeff's radio show and website, and have often referenced
him. With a minority of exceptions, we support his stance
on every issue. We've never quarreled with him and he's
never contacted us to clear up any questions about us
that he might have. (If you would like to do so, Jeff,
we'll be pleased to reply.)
In the past, when attacked,
we've always let the small fire burn out. It's not our
policy to seek or to nourish conflict, and this is not
where this open letter is coming from. But this very
silly article is being copied round the internet and
a large number of supporters have drawn our attention
to it, and we need to say something. It's also a timely
opportunity to make some other statements.
First, to substantive issues:
there is no connection between our Project Camelot and
the one from the Kennedy era. We'd not even heard of
that until we Googled ourselves out of curiosity soon
after establishing our site. Clearly we were not the
only people who thought it was a good name.
As we've explained many
times, on radio, on video, and in writing, the idea of
Project Camelot came soon after Kerry and I had met when
we were visiting Tintagel, in Cornwall, England, in April
2006. Tintagel is believed by many to be a strong candidate
for King Arthur's Camelot, and having visited the place
we could see why. Driving back to London, where Kerry
was due to fly home after her four-day visit on the way
back from Egypt, we came to the idea to start what is
now Project Camelot - and had the entire thing visualized
between us within minutes.
We have no handlers. We
have no paymasters (alas!). No-one tells us what to do.
We report to nobody. Nothing we have ever done has been
'staged' or in any way duplicitous. There are no 'plots'.
There is no 'agenda'. Very often we have no fixed idea
ourselves what we're going to do until pretty close to
any particular event or meeting.
We are exactly who we say
we are. If there's something about us you don't know,
then just ask. We're visible, and accessible, and operate
under our real names, with real photographs on real video.
We're easy to find. Come up to us at any conference and
ask us any question. Thousands of people have.
We give people as much time
as we can. We do all this deliberately. We do not write
snide articles under the protection of anonymity. We
state our views clearly and openly. We protect OTHERS
- but that's what we've always promised to do. Followers
of what we do cannot expect us to reveal the names and
addresses of everyone who reveals sensitive information
to us. To criticize us for protecting whistleblowers
is naive in the extreme.
Anyone who has met us in
person knows who we are. It could hardly be more obvious.
We do not try to sell anything, and ALL our work is available
We have very little money:
I live supported by the generosity of friends, and Kerry
usually [quite literally] does not know how she is going
to pay her next month's rent.
All our friends know this.
And our enemies should, because it's easy to check. We
decided long ago that we'd not bother to hide anything,
as anyone with real resources would easily be able to
find it all out anyway.
Which is why the Rense.com
piece posted is either:
-- Written by someone
who means well but who has not done their homework
(or lacks intel resources to check who we really
-- Written by someone
who does not care what the truth is, but who has an
agenda to smear us for reasons unknown.
Of the latter, there are
---- We may have upset
---- We may have upset
Recently there are four
things that have happened which may have caused us to
be attacked - after crossing a 'political' line:
1) Dr Pete Peterson
told us information that he warned us we could be
killed for. (We're still awaiting his OK for the
release of the video. More on this in a later update.)
2) We publicly stated our opposition
to the prospect of mandatory vaccinations, expressing
grave doubts about the integrity and agenda of the
authorities who are selling the belief that mass vaccination
will be 'necessary'.
3) We publicly challenged the motivation,
information and agenda of Dr Steven Greer (who we are
sure has bona fide connections in high places,
as he claims). No-one else has ever dared to do that
as we did. (We encourage others to do so, by the way.
Don't be afraid of the fire you may draw. Something
is very wrong with that picture. Most researchers stay
silent. We called him on his false information.)
4) We have supported Henry Deacon (Arthur
Neumann) in his recent, tentative, very brave, two-steps-forward
one-step-back efforts to speak out publicly about a
tiny amount of what he knows and has experienced. It
seems that some people really did not like
Our friend David Wilcock, a highly
intelligent, intuitive and well-informed researcher,
has been - alongside us - at the heart of supporting
Henry/Arthur in speaking out. Without any obvious reason,
David too has been smeared, in the most offensive and
repugnant way, by some of the same sources who have
smeared us. Go figure. (David had the dignity to remain
silent. Kudos to him. He may be a more patient man
than I am.)
Besides possibly offending some people
in high places, we have been criticized by some for the
Steven Greer video. I need to say a few things about
that. At this point, you will see why I'm writing this
We know that some people don't like our
camerawork. (Yes, it's amateur: but many people love
it, since everything we do is a kind of home movie as
we invite viewers to share our ongoing experiences.)
We know some people don't like Kerry's
interviewing style. That's okay, too: there are many
other videos to watch - too many, in fact - and no-one
is under contract to view or listen to our material.
We understand that many people were uncomfortable
with how we (both) confronted Steven Greer. We appreciated
that some people found the video hard to watch ...we
did ourselves! But we do not apologize for our stance,
and our substantive questions remain - and they are serious
And Kerry herself has come under fire.
Here's my response. Read this carefully.
Kerry Cassidy is one of the bravest people
I have ever met. She has more integrity in her little
finger than most people have in their whole being. In
all the time I've known her - and all the time I've spent
with her (which is considerable: despite not being a
couple, we always share hotel rooms, and have traveled
for thousands of miles and for months out of every year)
- I have never, EVER, known her to lie
or deceive in any way. I do not believe the thought ever
enters her head. This is an extraordinarily rare and
valuable quality. Name me another person, man or woman,
who meets that test.
- I've never, ever, known her to deliberately
hurt another person. Rather the opposite: she forgives
and always seeks to understand those who I sometimes
myself privately write off in my own moments of impatience
- She has the kind of courage that any
General would be proud of - and which many men lack.
She is fearless and has no concerns whatsoever for her
own safety or about others' opinions of her. She is ALWAYS
trying to do the right thing. She and I have both made
mistakes and errors of judgment - but her intentions
are honorable every time.
She is loyal, and determined, and committed
to the highest good, and I'm proud to work with her.
She has explained her interview style, which is seamless
with her personality, and rightly does not apologize
for who she is. (One of our closest friends, Bob Dean
- you may remember that some air-heads criticized Kerry
for giving him a 'hard time' on camera - loves her to
pieces and is one of our staunchest allies. Go figure.)
Between us, we make up an extremely strong
team. We complement one another extraordinarily well.
And we are far more than "interviewers" or "journalists".
It's not just our job to ask questions and keep dutifully
We've been swimming in this material
publicly, 24/7, for over three years, literally night
and day. Before that, we were students and private researchers
for decades, and have both had our own experiences. (See
of ourselves by Arjan Bos. You may like it. You'll
learn quite a lot about us and what makes us tick.)
We know a great deal now, and are well-qualified
to have our own strong, well-informed opinions on a range
of subjects. We do not apologize for, or need to justify,
the way we present our views - or the fact that we present
them at all.
One part of Jeff's posted article made
me smile: the reference to the "slick, well-funded
website". That gives a clue that the authors of
the smear piece may be website amateurs. I do almost
all of the web work myself, and I barely know what I'm
doing - I use Dreamweaver and am always at the limit
of my ability. I don't even use CSS, because I don't
That tells you something about the authors
of the smear. Logic suggests one should maybe look for
whoever runs a website less [apparently] "slick
than ours. Someone with a good, professional website
immediately knows that we are challenged.
I am now no longer quite as angry as
I was when I started writing this response. This is a
kind of war, in which one loses friends, and in which
one gets wounded, and sometimes wakes up discouraged,
and sometimes becomes enraged, and then often feels re-motivated
all over again.
We will continue to do our job - which
we define ourselves. We stand for humanity and for the
potential transcendent magnificence of all people (here
and on other planets). There are forces here and elsewhere
which do not want that magnificence to manifest.
This is a spiritual war - as we have
always stated. Like David Icke, we are in no doubt that
the outcome will be a good one - but between now and
then there may be work for us all to do.
