The report I read, I think on this site, said the attacker (security guard) who mistook Pitt for a papparazzi, was holding a document in his mouth. It showed a picture, I thought it was odd, but assumed he had been reading the document, then jumped in to "help" by grabbing Pitt.
Not sure what I think about this stuff, I have relatives in the Masons but they are no longer active. I never thought of it as a cult, but the person I knew who was the most involved, used to go for his holiday every year to the place in the US where the military is trained. Westpoint, I believe. (He was Canadian, now deceased and just the other day I mentioned to some friends how it was odd he always went there.They said he was obsessed with the US military, and one of his sons had been in the US army, which I think is odd for a Canadian. I don't know if his wife was American, or how difficult it is for a Canadian to join the American military. I also have a relative by marriage, who also was very interested in the US military and her daughter is now an intern at FBI headquarters. That also surprised me, as I would have assumed Americans would give first to their own citizens for these positions. This family also made many trips to the US capital, again a bit odd I thought, as once you have seen the sights, why go back? The fact that my niece had so little trouble getting into this position also surprised me. I guess I should check if they are Masons too!) Am I surrounded by cults? Creepy stuff.
From what I had heard, it was dying out as young people are not interested in joining.
Does the group really have any influence any more? In today's world, how could anyone not know they were being influenced? For instance if Holie has people checking the web for her, or she does it herself, she will have seen these posts won't she? In which case, she should know she is indoctrinated. In addition, many actors have played spies, its a common thriller scenario. Is Damon and Deniro part of this cult for making "Good Shepherd?" Where does it end? You may have something here, there are a lot of coincidences, its hard to explain all of them away.
