Kerry Cassidy conducted her first two interview with Bill Wood in an uncharacteristically restrained and "allowing" style, but that has now devolved into epic nastiness, which is worth wondering about.
I'm not stating any opinion about the article below (which originally appears here). I have no way of knowing where the truth lies, but have only gut feelings.
If you want some background on this fallout, watch the very good Lisa Harrison-Bill Wood interview that is referred to below. I did not listen to the Cassidy radio interview (the third one) where allegedly the noxious waste matter hit the revolving paddles, but having heard about it, I don't really want to. ...However, based on this report and my former impressions of Cassidy, I do wonder whether she has a serious personality disorder. At the very least, the writer of the article does bring up some perspectives on Camelot (and Avalon) that may be worth thinking about. Here we go...
The Bill Wood Disclosures:
I have now gone through nearly 12 hours of the audio, and the video of the first interview, with Bill Wood from Project Camelot...some of these twice! I have witheld any substanitive judgements of the level of information provided in those interviews, but have commented on the hubris surrounding the "Beyond Looking Glass" marketing campaign launched by Camelot to feature the interviews on their site.
Even as the videos went viral, it was clear that Kerry Cassidy was unhappy with Bill's performance, so much so that David Wilcock was brought in to shore up the shaky foundations. The problem lies, not in the information Bill Wood provided, but in what was EXPECTED by both the collective of Project Camelot and the audience. Forget for now, the accusations that Brockbrader/Wood was not a SEAL and that he is a registered sex offender...those issues are dealt with effectively on both sides. Forget that when the third Camelot video became an expose of sex rings in Las vegas and a platform for Bill's spiritual pursuit, Wood was "lynched" via chatroom comments. As I said, I have refrained from any comments until I have spoken with Bill Wood, personally.
What IS clear is that Bill Wood failed to provide the level of "sizzle" required for a whistleblower on Project Camelot. So, Wood was thrown under the bus by Cassidy because he failed to live up to the hype promised by Camelot, who of late have a shortfall of new dislosers. Cassidy's pale "love and light" veneer gave way to outright denunciation after Wood issued some corrections is his subsequent interview with Lisa Harrison on February 7, 2012.
In an email to which I was a recipient, Bill attached a lenghty statement dealing with both substanitive issues and the heightening war of words with Kerry Cassidy. The full statement is posted below as a PDF. What follows is Kerry's reply, and my commments to her recent actions, focusing on her repeated undermining of people with which she has conflict, by invoking a "mind control" epithet.

Mind control, "programming" and other similar terms are MEMES...repeated and regurgitated throughout the internet media, removed from their context. They also act as TRIGGERS for both the victims, and those distinctive varieties of trolls who habituate forums, talk show chatrooms, and blog comments.
The act of bandying these terms around in loose fashion, especially as a means of discrediting a subject is nothing less than a form of mental hate crime! Like racial epithets, gender-based slurs, or derogatory comments on the disabled, the usage of "mind control" and its associated terms as an implied negative character disorder, desensitizes the public perception of these hideous practices, and minimizes the trauma of its victims in favor of a broader, more pragmatic usage to the detriment of everyone who works to END FOREVER these practices.
As I outline below, if Ms. Cassidy wishes to denounce Bill Wood as a "liar", that is her perogative. The term is fairly clear, and perhaps applicable where two parties vary on details. Lies can be addressed in a substantive manner by the readers and listeners with the proper degree of discernment...the world if FULL of liars.
On the other hand, mind control must be understood as a syndrome of violence to the human soul and psyche. In extremis, it is a violent, brutal, and devastating process that strips the subjects abilities to recall or assess their own thoughts and actions. Mind control subjects are VICTIMS...not liars, in the capacity of their particular testimony. Anyone who has ever spent time interviewing subjects of mind control (including abductees), fully knows the precarious nature of both the psyche and the testimony being given.
These factors make any such interview a matter of delicacy and great sensitivity. That sensitivity must never be over-ridden by the subjective whims of the interviewer, or audience, regarding the subjects' moral intentions. To be more succinct: lies are purposeful distortions; mind control is a subjegation of willful response and action. The two are not morally equal, and the latter is involuntary.
As a publicly denounced "liar", Bill Wood should have slunk away. He did not do so, and in fact, roared back with a level statement on the differences with Camelot, the war of words with Navy SEAL, Don Shipley, and an offer of validation by a former SEAL trainer who recalled both Wood and Blackwater founder, Erik Prince.
Cassidy, understandably upset (but with no small blame to bear due to her ungraceful handling of the entire Bill Wood debacle), shot back with one phrase that once again demonstrated a lack of integrity as regards the subject of MIND CONTROL:
KERRY at Project Camelot [email protected]
Bill,More lies from you. Obviously you are re-programmed and no longer trustworthy in any way.Please do not attempt to contact me or send me further lies regarding me or Camelot.Thank you.Kerry
For those who are not familiar with Cassidy's prior attempts to smear someone with the "mind control" label I refer you to the article here: Letter To Kerry Cassidy-December 5, 2011 What follows is my response to Cassidy's latest drive-by mind control attack:
to KERRY, Bill, ...
We have Bill's written statement, and Kerry's blog article, we are all grown-ups, let those with ears hear. I have an issue with Kerry---a pattern if you will, that persists: whenever someone turns on her, or those on the INSIDE of Project Camelot, she reverts to accusations of mind control, as she does in both her posts and this email regarding Bill Wood. She did this in the accusations made against Richard Hoagland by Gary Vierre back in December 2011, when she wrote that Gary was likely a mind control subject.
I would have to ask you, Kerry, what substantive evidence do you have that Bill has been "re-programmed"? What evidence did you ever have about your cruel accusations against Gary---a person with which you had NO contact?
You may ask why this matters?
Again, it goes to the very core of the work you and Bill did in Project Camelot's early days with whistleblowers who were generally assumed to be both handled, and subjects of some form of mind control. You have had witnesses who acknowledge they are being handled...Barry King comes to mind, as he told me directly he is still handled.
The problem is one of deploying convenient pejorative labels whenever things turn to shit on your end. So I ask: is being a "mind control" subject a descriptor of a person who is to be treated with compassion, or derision? I don't think you can have it both ways. If you choose the negative connotation (and you have), then you place into disrepute not only those you have so labelled, but your own "body of evidence", and any such future endeavors.
That those coming out of such projects are subject to surveillance, handling (direct or indirect), and even ultimately being "switched" should not come as a surprise to you, a veteran researcher of these subjects. That you have a repeated pattern of such behavior demonstrates either a double standard towards such subjects, or a naïveté beyond your experience.
It appears this is your last resort epithet when all else has failed. In a sense, you, being a researcher of mind control, employ mind control by invoking mind control---even where a lack of such is absent. You wonder why your whistleblowers are drying up? Do you not sense that even your own audience is growing fatigued with your sharp elbows and tactless manner in attempting to pry the last ounce of substance from your victims (er, interview subjects)?
I think you have fairly stated that Bill's testimony was not in line with your standards in this statement:
"...a lack of familiarity with what Project Camelot is all about. And therefore Bill and Eva are not able to assess accurately what is new and what is well known to the Camelot audience."
You also seemed to evoke the proper tenor for a person in your field when you wrote:
"I suggest that rather than judging him you consider the impact that simple mass mind control has had on your own lives and then try to put yourself in the shoes of someone who has that and on top of it joins the military and becomes the focus of intense mind manipulation over long periods of time. Then you will begin to understand what it truly means to be a whistleblower, or someone who has chosen to break ranks and come forward to tell the truth about what they have experienced."
That was then, this is now. So there are double standards, or what we would call "conditional love"....nice!
In your haste to rush out the Bill Wood material, did you ever vet his testimony? Did it occur to you that the fact he presented material similar to other whistelblowers was to be considered more "corroborative" than the stunning next big thing that your (perceived) adrenaline-addicted listenership demands? Part of the art of media is knowing how to frame things, and present in a manner appropriate to the presenter. When the first interview failed to yield the appropriate "buzz", did you really need three people to handle a second interview...or is this just Camelot's manner of "handling" a subject?
Kerry, you have a problem: you are completely disingenuous about mind control. IF...I repeat...IF, Bill has been "reprogrammed", then he would not be the culprit, but those who are his handlers. On the other hand, if "mind controlled" "reprogrammed", or other similar terms are to be bandied about in hostility and anger, then it can be presumed you lack the appropriate insight and sensitivity to work with such people.
I suspect those who have watched these repeated "blow ups", especially witnesses presently not coming forward, are also seeing the big picture in this regard. I suggest you clarify your perceptions and responses with an attunement of sensitivity toward subjects of mind control programs, and resist taking (once again) the "low road" when things go bad.
Grace under pressure is the real sign of a professional...not the name-calling and hurled implications which you cannot know or prove.

"I would only suggest that, as Kerry states, that Project Camelot is not the proper forum for first time whistleblowers and that many people, including myself, agree with her statement. It is my greatest wish to establish a forum in which whistleblowers can disclose seeming unbelievable information and not be discredited simply because they don’t possess a level of proof that nameless, faceless people in the chatrooms and forumsdemand."
I get a steady flow of emails form listeners and readers who voice concerns over the goings on at Camelot/Avalon, usually of the type that indicates they feel captive to the millieu of such turmoil. YOU HAVE A CHOICE: Dump them and begin to dig out the truth for yourselves! Camelot may be the "big dog" (for now) of truther-type media, but they are certainly not the only one.
In fact, be suspicious of "big dogs"---they are usually "well fed", if you catch the drift. Certainly, the tone of arrogance indicates that Kerry & Co. feel justified in deploying the mind control meme to their advantage whenever it suits them. That arrogance worries me...how about you?
