(BERGDAHL WAS RELEASED IN EXCHANGE FOR 5 TALIBAN GENERALS IN ORDER TO COVER UP THE OBAMA/HILLARY STINGER MISSILE SALES TO LIBYA.)
BENGHAZI AND THE MATCHING SERIAL NUMBERS…..
So here’s the REAL story: Ambassador Stevens was sent to Benghazi to secretly retrieve US made Stinger Missiles that the State Dept. had supplied to Ansar al Sharia in Libya WITHOUT Congressional oversight or permission.
Sec State Hillary Clinton had brokered the Libya deal through Ambassador Stevens and a Private Arms Dealer named Marc Turi, but some of the shoulder fired Stinger Missiles ended up in Afghanistan where they were used against our own military. On July 25th, 2012, a US Chinook helicopter was downed by one of them. Not destroyed only because the idiot Taliban didn’t arm the missile. The helicopter didn’t explode, but it had to land and an ordnance team recovered the missile’s serial number which led back to a cache of Stinger Missiles kept in Qatar by the CIA.
Obama and Hillary were in full panic mode, so Ambassador Stevens was sent to Benghazi to retrieve the rest of the Stinger Missiles. This was a “do-or-die” mission, which explains the Stand Down Orders given to multiple rescue teams during the siege of the US Embassy.
It was the State Dept., NOT the CIA, that supplied the Stinger Missiles to our sworn enemies because Gen. Petraeus at CIA would not approve supplying the deadly missiles due to their potential use against commercial aircraft. So then, Obama threw Gen. Petraeus under the bus when he refused to testify in support of Obama’s phony claim of a “spontaneous uprising caused by a YouTube video that insulted Muslims.”
Obama and Hillary committed TREASON!
THIS is what the investigation is all about, WHY she had a Private Server, (in order to delete the digital evidence), and WHY Obama, two weeks after the attack, told the UN that the attack was the result of the YouTube video, even though everyone KNEW it was not.
Furthermore, the Taliban knew that the administration had aided and abetted the enemy WITHOUT Congressional oversight or permission, so they began pressuring (blackmailing) the Obama Administration to release five Taliban generals being held at Guantanamo.
Bowe Bergdahl was just a useful pawn used to cover the release of the Taliban generals. Everyone knew Bergdahl was a traitor but Obama used Bergdahl’s exchange for the five Taliban generals to cover that Obama was being coerced by the Taliban about the unauthorized Stinger Missile deal.
So we have a traitor as POTUS that is not only corrupt, but compromised, as well and a Sec. of State that is a serial liar, who perjured herself multiple times at the Congressional Hearings on Benghazi. Perhaps this is why no military aircraft were called upon for help in Benghazi: Because the administration knew that our enemies had Stinger Missiles; that, if used to down those planes, would likely be traced back to the CIA cache in Qatar and then to the State Dept.’s illegitimate arms deal in Libya.

Share this again and again and again until everyone reads the true story of Benghazi. More than half of US citizens DO NOT Know.”

(Triangular UFOs: An Estimate of the Situation, David Marler, Richard Dolan Press, Box 92188 Rochester, New York 14692, www.keyholepublishing.com, 2013, 276 pages, $19.95.)
David Marler analytically laid out the contours of special types of UFOs that somewhat appeared as triangular aircraft or similar phenomena going back as far as 1882.
“These are craft of unknown origin. We appear to be confronted with something other than human technology, therefore the implications are profound,” said Marler. “The objects may be spatial, temporal, or dimensional in origin.”
Not knowing the real intentions of the operators of such craft, Marler suggested we stand ever-vigilant to the phenomena and continue to gather as many hard facts as we can.
Where we stand today in reference to triangular UFOs and the UFO subject as a whole is just a steppingstone in our examination of this phenomenon,” said Marler. “Questions remain as to the relationship, if any, of these triangular UFOs relative to the others of varying descriptions. Each person who reviews this material can maketheirown conclusions.”
CHARLES FORT AND DONALD KEYHOE
Charles Fort, the person who chronicled strange events at the turn of the century, and gave meaning to the term “Fortean,” recorded Charles Tilden Smith’s sighting of two triangular dark shapes on April 8, 1912 (Chrisbury, Wiltshire, England). “It is not a stretch of the imagination to assume,” said Marler, “that two large triangular-shaped shadows were most likely caused by two large triangular-shaped objects.”
The late UFOlogist Donald Keyhoe related accounts of triangular-shaped objects that were also seen in England and Scotland in 1895, said Keyhoe (p. 63).
Mr. Helger Berg and a work-companion spotted a triangular UFO at Eklorna, Alaska in 1936. “…the sound reminded me of when the pilot shuts down a turbine. It had a kind whining sound until it finally peters out,” said Berg.
Similar triangular UFOs were seen in 1950, 1953, and 1954 in Korea, Germany, California, New York, and Canada, not to mention in many other countries around the globe.
Eleven crew members of a British Overseas Airways Corporation (BOAC) Strato Cruiser and most of its fifty-one passengers saw a similar UFO for eighteen minutes on June 29, 1954. The object at first appeared to be a dark blob accompanied by an “array of objects” lined up three in front and three in back. “They likened it to a battleship with escort ships,” said Marler.
Captain James Howard noted that the smaller objects appeared to enter and exit the larger object. The larger object appeared to change from a pear-shaped UFO to “an enormous delta-wing plane” and then to a “giant telephone receiver lying on its back in the sky.”
A jet interceptor pilot noted that upon his approach to the UFOs, the smaller objects suddenly disappeared. Crew members said that the smaller objects went into the larger object. The larger object said to be as large as an oceanliner, shrunk in size and disappeared.
A MUFON CGI Image of a Typical Triangle UFO
Another typical sighting was on September 3, 1965, by law enforcement officials, deputies Bethel McCoy and Bob Goode, as they drove south of Houston, Texas. “It hovered in the air. It was eerie,” the witnesses said, “It was shaped like a triangle 200 feet long and 40 to 50 feet high. It had a purple light on its left side and a blue one on its right side.”
The UFO followed them in a high-speed pursuit, and then abruptlystopped and disappeared.
Mrs. Robert Gorisek of La Salle, Illinois witnessed a triangular object on March 25, 1966, that hovered over her car for over an hour. The object seemed to follow her and several witnesses as they drove through several towns.
On the same day, Mrs. R.H. Chappell and Miss Janie Kidd observed the triangular UFOs in Victoria, British Columbia; both had ruby red lights that were flashing back and forth between the UFOs “as if they were signaling each other.”
THE JANUARY 5, 2000 TRIANGLE
Marler outlined one of the best typical triangular UFO cases, during the night of January 5, 2000, which invaded the skies over Highland, Lebanon, Shiloh and Millstadt, Illinois. The UFO was witnessed by multiple law enforcement officers as well as several civilian people. Sighting-descriptions varied from triangular to a box-shaped object as big as a “two-story house.”
View of Rear and the Underside of January 5, 2000, Triangle UFO
Officer Craig Stevens gave a classic description of the object as it passed near Liederkranz Park on the north end of Millstadt, Illinois. The UFO appeared about 500 to 1,000 feet in altitude. It moved very slowly with a lowdecibel buzzingsound. “He could see the object had a white light on the left side, right side, and center of the back end,” said Marler, “In addition, there was a single red light on the bottom. The back end also appeared to be slightly recessed.”
Officer Stevens took Polaroid pictures which did not turn out, except to show blurry lights.
Officer Ed Barron and Officer David Martin observed the object to travel about ten miles in two to three seconds, with an estimated UFO speed of 12,000 miles per hour.
“The resulting effect should have been the creation of a sonic boom which would have rattled the entire area,” said Marler. “However, no such reports were made by the witnesses or residents of the surrounding areas.”
Marler speculated amongst several theories including an unknown and secret military craft. “The second is that this was not a military vehicle and was completely foreign to military officials,” said Marler. “If this scenario is true, the implications are chilling. A genuine UFO flew by a major military installation and caught the military completely by surprise to the point where no overt defensive response was initiated.”
THE TINLEY PARK UFOs
On the evenings of August 21 and October 31st, 2004, at Tinsley Park, Illinois, a triangular UFO was sighted by numerous witnesses (including three videos and three photographs).
“In at least two videos the object was recorded rotating in the base below and above itself. This is a very unusual maneuver clearly recorded and then mentioned in the narration,” said MUFON State Director, Sam Maranto.
One 48-year-old witness said that about 10 p.m. on August 21st, 2004, a red light came along the same path of the previous triangular UFO flight path. There was no noise and the object floated very slowly over the tops of houses.
“Their evaluations of footage and Graphic illustrations of the estimated size of the triangular object is nothing short of dynamic,” said Sam Maranto about a UFO Hunters television show, “they did an excellent job getting the point across in the show that, whatever the nature of the object, it was many times larger than anything in our flying arsenal today.”
In chapter seven, Marler traveled through twenty profile characteristics that seemed to have defined the triangular UFOs.
Photo of Belgium Triangle Craft – June 1990
A triangular craft spotted near Fleet, England in 1978 moved in a “triangular pattern.” “It was very erratic going backward and forwards,” said the witness.
Triangle crafts were witnessed during 1980-1981 in the state of Pennsylvania. In one instance, the object “is described as a triangle shaped, makes no noise but moves quickly back and forth and up and down.”
Other triangle UFOs were flying with “blunt-end-forward.” On January 31, 1978, a New Jersey woman saw a triangle-craft about 11 p.m. “It was a triangle with the point at the back and a lot of red and white lights,” said the witness, “more than planes usually have.” There was no sound.
A triangular object with luminous points of light on its angles was spotted in 1965 in Bienne, Sweden, moving very fast north to south along the Jura Mountains. Suddenly, the object stopped, changing color from yellow to dark red, made a 180-degree turn – a 90-degree change of course – and vanished.
About 7:00 p.m., January 1994, Fujitsu-gun, Japan, a witness was approached in his car by a bright light, which he recollected as three lights attached to a dark triangular-shaped object which flooded his car with a brilliant white light described “as being just like a searchlight.” The object increased its speed and disappeared.

On November 3, 1961, about 4:30 p.m. in Eyres Monsell, England, a witness observed a triangular object with an orange center; the object flew an estimated 600 miles per hour and resembled an Auro Vulcan bomber in size.
Marler’s book was fore worded by retired US Army Colonel John Alexander. Alexander had an impressive career as a Green Beret war hero, as well as an adviser to the CIA, the U.S Special Operations Command and the National Intelligence Council on Foreign Relations. While genuinely upholding the reality of alien UFOs, Alexander has done his share of critical debunking of much of ufology, to the chagrin of many ufologists. He debunked, in this case, the belief that triangular UFOs were actually secret military vehicles:
“Regarding triangular UFOs, in particular, conspiracy theorists repeatedly have taken the position mentioned above – secret government research. It never mattered that such a conclusion defies both facts and logic specifically, while the government does develop advanced aircraft in secret,” said Alexander, “they do not conduct test flights of well-illuminated prototypes near the major metropolitan area. Yet, that is where many of the large triangles have been observed.” (p. 2.)
(There were herein several controversies related to the topic of the origins of triangular aircraft that are outside of the book, which Erdmann is attempting to cover.).
Micheal S. Heiser – Researcher
Dr. Michael Heiser’s posts included summaries and opinions of Mr. Marler’s work, as well as thoughts on a foreword for the book provided by Colonel John Alexander. Dr. Heiser supported Mr. Marler for his research and endorsed the book to those interested in UFOs. Heiser also expressed concerns about dodgy lapses of relevant data, particularly committed by Colonel John Alexander. Colonel Alexander continued to suggest that he could identify triangular craft that were regular secret operations as opposed to those which are not, “implying some are supposedly not (normal aircraft…SE), all the while at least pretending to be virtually oblivious to the history of man-made triangle craft and the interest held in them by two of his former employers, the Department of Defense and Robert Bigelow’s National Institute of Discovery Science.”
Dr. Heiser posted on his personal blog, UFO Religions, in what had so far been a two-part post titled, Thoughts. Michael Heiser, who holds a Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible, recently made a couple particularly noteworthy comments on Marler’s book about triangular UFOs.
“…All the above makes it very odd that the words ‘dirigible’ and ‘airship’ do not even appear in Marler’s index. It’s as though research in that direction and behavioral overlap didn’t even register with him. Since those terms don’t appear in his index, it makes sense that the names of Busby and Danelek are also absent. They are the authors of the two major books on the airship sightings in the late 1890s.”
Artist Depiction of The Airships Wave of 1896 – 1897
“But if we assume the craft to be neither imaginary nor extraterrestrial, what is left? Only one possibility remains, and that is that the vessel seen in the skies over much of the United States in the winter of 1896-97 was a powered balloon or, more accurately, a dirigible, possibly being put through its paces by some intrepid inventor intent on bringing lighter-than-air flight to humanity.”
“I’m not going to claim that dirigible airship technology is ‘the’ explanation for triangular craft, or even that there is a direct line of evolution from the early patents to today,” said Heiser. “For sure one could make that case, but that wouldn’t actually prove that airships are behind the triangular UFOs. It would only provide a working theory. I don’t know those triangular UFOs are dirigible, even nuclear ones.
“Their omission from the discussion is unwarranted. I read Marler’s book quickly and perhaps there’s some mention of any of this, but I would have missed it for brevity. He too quickly concludes that explanations not focused on ETs are the drawing board for some time…I’m no more omniscient than Colonel Alexander, but I’ll be more upfront about that. What I do know is that this technology deserves to be part of the discussion…(not) only about the delta-wing jet craft. He’s missed the Airbus.”
Igor Pasternak and Worldwide Aeros Corporation Passenger Blimp
Heiser continued with a list of modern Lighter Than Air (LTA) aircraft that demonstrated the actuality of this generation of flight. The Department of Defense (DOD) had committed $35,000,000 to an “Aero” prototype. Heiser acknowledged several modern LTA crafts, such as Lockheed Martin’s “Sky tug.” Another is the “Space Blimp”:
“The orbital airship, also called the space blimp, is a proposed space transportation system that carries payloads to and from low Earth orbit…In the Airship to Orbit (ATO) design envisioned by JP Aerospace, there are three components. A conventional airship (Ascender) lifts payloads up to 30-40 kilometers above the ground – roughly the maximum altitude a conventional airship can achieve. At this altitude, the second component, a docking station (Dark Sky Station), acts as a resupply station for the third stage. The third stage is an ‘orbital airship’ (Orbital Ascender), which takes payloads to low earth orbit via an ion engine in three to nine days (i.e., it accelerates itself horizontally to orbital velocity and gains sufficient altitude). Their estimated marginal costs are one dollar per ton per mile of altitude, and their development costs thus far have been under one million dollars.”
Tom Levine of Levicom, LLC (email@example.com. PO Box 1948, Fair Oaks, California, 95628) had done extensive research into February 2007 triangular ‘flap’ that occurred over the multiple areas during that month. Basically, Levine believed the triangles were BigBlackDirigibles (BBDs) using unconventional and electrokinetic drives. He also pointed to similar crafts such as the Dynaship 2 Aereons.
Clyde Lewis outlined the opinions of UFO researcher Tim Mathews in UFOEvidence.Org:
“Tim Mathews is the ‘Angry young man’ of British ufology. He has upset the cozy state that the British scene had got into the post-Bufora/Alien Autopsy film and has earned a fast reputation for straight talking and cutting through much of the malaise the scene found itself in the last year. He believes that many sightings can be explained by secret aircraft and suppressed military tests. Mr. Mathews exposes a world of political maneuvering by the authorities to protect financial and political interests. He has exposed the existence of secret planes from year’s back, which would be considered ‘cutting edge’ today.
“Mathews believes that giving the label of an extraterrestrial craft to a UFO is premature, and has spent a lot of his time showing that Military Technology is the most likely answer behind the enigmatic UFO. His research has shown that a lot of flying disc and triangle technology comes from Nazi Germany. It has always been the objective of designers of aircraft to find a craft that can ascend and descend vertically. The craft would have to be circular without wings. Over time we have seen these craft and attributed their remarkable capabilities to some extra-terrestrial intelligence.”
Marler offered the testimony of several noted ufologists and scientists on the topic of UFOs and triangular crafts..
Researcher John Alexander
John Alexander had commented on the belief that secret military operations impinged upon sightings of triangular UFOs, having previously been the director of all USAF research and development at Wright-Patterson AFB: he asked a military official in the Secret Projects division about his research and triangular aircraft:
“He indicated we had nothing larger than the C-5 although the Russian Antonov AN-124 is even bigger. Neither of these approach the size reported on many occasions. I am also aware of a proposal by one of the topmost aerospace defense contractors to build a large semi-rigid, lighter-than-aircraft specifically for logistical purposes. They indicated they could not even get any military support for the concept and that was within the last fifteen years.”
Heiser noted that his research contradicted Alexander’s comments. He also wondered, despite outward appearances, if Alexander was privy to highest “Need to Know” information at many different security levels, or was simply being led away from “all” the facts.
“Certainly, many doubts remain, but I do believe that the U.S military has some sort of flying triangle, perhaps several types…even so, it is a long stretch to argue that all of the triangle reports can be attributed to ‘our’ technology. Frankly, many of these crafts do not appear to come from any conceivable terrestrial source.” (p. 245)
Richard Dolan – UFO Researcher
Investigator Ray D. Sanford said on November 18, 2014, that he likewise did not exclude an extraterrestrial source:
“Along with his gift of penetrating `trait analysis’ [See, especially, chapter 7, Establishing a Profile.], the author thoroughly demolishes the myth that the class of triangular and quasi-triangular objects defined in his analysis could be ‘black project’ vehicles. And Marler doesn’t just provide abundant descriptive evidence that the classes of evidence defined in his fascinating study constitute a group of vehicles unmatched by any terrestrially-sourced technology, he provides readers some examples that reveal state-of-the-art terrestrial technology as highly inferior by comparison.
“For example, on page 200, the author bolsters that conclusion with his highly appropriate reference from the Washington Post of August 15, 2012, headed ‘Hyper-sonic craft X-51A fails the latest test.’ That ‘Wave rider’ aircraft had to be launched from a B-52 bomber, incorporated a scram-jet combustion engine (producing a fairly conventional looking effect-trail behind it), and the flight had to be quickly scrapped due to a problem with a control surface.”
United Kingdom researcher George Wingfield pondered: “However scientists do speculate that travel through space and time might one day be possible if mass is somehow converted into energy in a non-destructive way that allows its reconstruction when it reaches its destination.”
“Much has been written on the subject (of the Rendlesham case…SE). However, this brief review serves to illustrate yet one more triangular UFO report,” said Marler, “that does not conform to the typical profile we are familiar with.”
THE CENTER FOR UFO STUDIES
Mark Rodeghier, Scientific Director for the Center for UFO Studies, the international study group originated by Dr. J. Allen Hynek, summarized conclusions for extraterrestrial origin of high strangeness triangular craft:
“As we compared triangle UFOs to the triangle – and – boomerang-shaped aircraft developed by the military, it became clear that the vast majority of ‘triangle UFOs’ were not conventional, or unconventional, technology. I described this with aviation experts and aviation journalists, and they were uniformly unaware of any terrestrial craft that could be causing these reports.” (p. 245.)
“Finally, the large, slow triangle UFOs, viewed by hundreds, even thousands, demonstrated how willfully the establishment, represented by government, academic, and the elite news media, can disregard something that is so ubiquitous, so visible, and so unearthly. It is possible not to see the elephant in the room, even when that elephant is a 300-foot triangular-shaped UFO.” (p. 248.)
MAKE OWN CONCLUSIONS
A thorough search of Marler’s book did reveal many new aspects of the on-going triangular UFO mystery. There were ample artwork and witness documents in the book.
Certainly, the bizarre and very strange performances of many triangular UFOs did tend to dismiss a normalterrestrial origin. The key word here is Normal. It may be possible that in the twists and turns of history there were hidden histories wherein are secreted a hybrid origin of ‘normal’ but also alien roots.
Fortean researchers Nick Redfern and Irene Bott summarized in AlienEncounters Magazine:
“There are two scenarios: either AVRO and British Aerospace have been flying highly advanced triangular shaped aircraft throughout Manchester and the surrounding areas for at least four decades (and if so, why, forty years on, is such technology not in widespread use?), or an unknown presence has been operating in our skies and utilising triangular aeroforms for more than four decades.”
Steve Erdmann suggested a “ThirdRail” explanation behind, not just triangular UFO sightings, but many reported high-strangeness UFOs: that an alien and secretive reality has coexistedalongside our own (more obvious) existence.
From an interview with Nikola Tesla – New York Herald Tribune, Oct. 15, 1911:
“Not at all,” said Dr. Tesla. “The aeroplane is fatally defective. It is merely a toy–a sporting play-thing…The flying machine of the future–my flying machine–will be heavier than air, but it will not be an aeroplane. It will have no wings. It will be substantial, solid, stable…My flying machine will have neither wings nor propellers. You might see it on the ground and you would never guess that it was a flying machine. Yet it will be able to move at will through the air in any direction with perfect safety, higher speeds than have yet been reached, regardless of weather and oblivious of ‘holes in the air’ or downward. currents
“It will ascend in such currents if desired. It can remain absolutely stationary in the air, even in a wind, for a great length of time. Its lifting power will not depend upon any such delicate devices as the bird has to employ but upon positive mechanical action.”
“You will get stability through gyroscopes?” the interviewer asked.
“Through gyroscopic action of my engine, assisted by some devices I am not yet prepared to talk about,” he replied.
Dr. Tesla smiled an inscrutable smile.
“All I have to say on that point is that my airship will have neither gas bag, wings nor propellers,” he said. “It is the child of my dreams, the product of years of intense and painful toil and research. I am not going to talk about it any further. But whatever my airship may be, here at least is an engine that will do things that no other engine ever has done, and that is something tangible.”
One Example of Nicola Tesla’s Flying Saucer Inventions
“Until hard UFO evidence is presented for the general public’s consumption (e.g., actual UFO parts thereof), this mystery will continue,” said Marler. “However, the thirst for understanding to fuel the investigations and research until the day when a better understanding is made of this most intriguing phenomenon.” (p. 241)
(An ending footnote of interest in regards to the triangular sighting report mentioned on pages 204-206 about the December 19, 1967 triangle. The report, if I am correct, was discovered by Steve Erdmann while he visited Marler’s home during one of several visits. Erdmann and Marler were researching the files for relative data. Erdmann made a somewhat “Eureka” exclamation upon spotting the previously undiscovered December 19 report and presented it to Marler, to his joy; history in the making.)
“The story that follows is a strange and controversial one, and encompasses incredible tales of shadowy whistleblowers; leaked, and apparently – still – classified, documents of the highest classification,” said the authors of Alien Viruses. “Deep Throat-style sources buried within the heart of the world of international espionage; crashed UFOs; dead alien bodies held in cryogenic storage within secure official facilities; and a cover-up of manifestly epic proportions that had its origins in the harsh deserts of New Mexico in the summer of 1947, and extends to the heart of the White House itself.”
(Alien Viruses, Crashed UFOs, MJ-12 + Bio warfare. Dr. Robert M. Wood with Nick Redfern, Richard Dolan Press, Rochester, New York 14619, 2013, 311 pages, $17:96)
A series of highly controversial, allegedly Top Secret and highly classified documents that became to be known as Majestic, were disclosed under awesome-sounding titles such as Unidentified Aircraft Sightings Over the United States, Top Secret Eyes Only, Intelligence Estimate; Majic Black Book Summaries; Analysis of the Corona and Oscura Peak, New Mexico Wreckage of Unidentified Lenticular Aerodyne Technology; and others. Disclosures continued with Project UFO; Moon Dust; Top Secret Jehovah and most importantly TheInterplanetary Phenomenon Unit Summary of the IPU. Information surrounded a Top Secret Ultra in that two UFO crashes occurred on July 3, 1947 outside of Roswell, New Mexico, and designated as LZ-1 and LZ-2.
“The IPU document makes it clear that the recovery of the wreckage and the bodies,” said the authors, “as seen as being a matter of profound significance and was handled with the utmost secrecy.”
MJ-12 Group formed the IPU Summary Report (Depiction)
Bodies found not far from LZ-1 looked “as if they had been dissected as you would a frog…not known if Army Field Surgeons had performed exploratory surgery on these bodies. Animal parts were reportedly discovered inside the craft at LZ-2 but this cannot be confirmed.” (p. 65)
General John A. Samford, then–director of the National Security Agency, said in a September 4, 1960 page found attached to an IPU Summary that IPU files were “re-classified” as Above Top Secret with a “Need to Know” basis approved by Presidential Executive Order and the U.S Majestic Intelligence and Security, as well as the National Security Agency.
The IPU Summary suggested “that at least some of the alien bodies found at UFO crash sites in New Mexico in the summer of 1947 presented a biological threat.” (p. 69.) Mentioned was an autopsy of an alien cadaver by Major Charles E. Rea and Dr. Detlen Bronk. Both doctors actually existed and did have impressive backgrounds. Implicated was Dr. Stafford L. Warren Oak Ridge Laboratories as an indication that Warren had an awareness of pre-1947 references to fatal encounters with an alien virus.”
1ST ANNUAL REPORT
Majestic Twelve Projects: 1St Annual Report was prepared by a “Special Panel” linked to MJ-12. The report said in part: “A consensus reached by members of the panel that until positive proof that the Russians did not attempt a series of reconnaissance flights over our most secure installations – the sightings and recovered objects are interplanetary in natural.” (p. 79)
The authors quoted the 1st Annual Report: “the samples extracted from bodies found in New Mexico, have yielded new strains of a metro-virus not totally understood, but, give promise of the ultimate BW weapon.” (p. 80)
A Typical Hazardous Bio-infection
Autopsies on four dead SED technicians indicated that the four may have “suffered from some form of toxin a highly contagious disease.” Those samples are kept at Fort Detrick, Md.
“…Personnel at Camp Detrick/Fort Detrick were concerned specifically about ‘airborne’ outbreaks of serious diseases in the exact year that the New Mexico UFO crash-retrievals occurred,” said the authors.
The Russian Anthrax Bug
Robert Gladding Green, a member of the Society for Experimental Biology and Medicine and also a member of the Society of American Bacteriologists, upheld the belief for viruses being retrograde organisms. Green was a close colleague of Major Charles Ethan Rea who was listed in the IPU Summary Report of July 22, 1947 as having conducted the autopsy involving a crashed UFO in New Mexico earlier in July, 1947.
Robert and Ryan Wood discussed several critiques about the reality of the Majic-12 documents. Robert Wood said: “We go through an orderly process of document evaluation, looking for clues that would suggest fakery: Anachronisms in paper, ink, typewriters, format, stamp impressions, or content.”
Dr. Robert Wood
Discussed also is the creation by President Truman of the Psychological Strategy Board (PSB) on April 4, 1951: “Many of these people are deeply involved with Majestic-12 according to other documents.”
After due investigation, the authors concluded that the documents do not fit as Psy-ops gimmickry or as faked documents.
“They are unique, fascinating, and sensational examples of genuine, and highly classified, official documents,” said Ryan Wood, “describing visitations to our planet by extraterrestrials, and the establishment of an ultra-secret committee – the MJ-12 – that oversees this extraordinary secret.” (p. 104)
A 50-page file by the Committee on Biological Warfare at the request of the American government’s elite Research and Development Board concerned fears of biological warfare from March 1947 through to the latter part of 1948. Suspicions surrounded the file that someone – or something – was planning a large-scale assault on North America’s cattle-herd, prompted by the discovery of “animal parts” at the site of a UFO crash in the summer of 1947.
A crashed UFO near Kingman, Arizona in May, 1953 suggested that the “retrieval team” may have been exposed to the same deadly virus that broke out in a “mysterious sickness” in 1947. A classified document dated March 24, 1995 stated about the 1953 retrieval: “….the crew after one hour emerged from the craft confused, with upset stomachs, removed their masks and threw up.”
Scientists Study Alien Corpse in the Movie “The Thing” (2011)
The Special Operations Manual SOM 1-01: Extraterrestrial Entities and Technologies – Recovery and Disposal obviously were instituted to supposedly provide instruction to recovery units. It also discussed cases of “flying triangles” reported, such as the triangle reported on April 22, 1949. A peculiar flying triangle of March 28, 1965 by Jeffrey Brown; Brown also claimed some form of skin affliction.
THE KENNEDY CONNECTION
The authors outlined a number of facts that connect the murder of President John F. Kennedy in Dealey Plaza, Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963.
“Most notably, all of these people with connections to the JFK story were specifically linked with crashed-saucer accounts,” said the authors, “rather than just the UFO subject in general.”
According to the authors, major players in the Kennedy mystery, such as Guy Banister, Fred Crisman, Clay Shaw and others, all had experienced UFO artifacts.
“According to the Majestic-12 1st Annual Report, some of the debris from Maury Island was turned over by Crisman (described in the document as a Counter Intelligence Corps Operative),” said the authors, “to a CIA agent named ‘Shaw.’ Kenn Thomas suggests that this was Clay Shaw.” (p. 157)
Just days before his assassination, Kennedy had an itinerary that included Wright Field and Fort Detrick. David Ferrie, an investigator for Banister, was deeply involved in biological cancer research, and several people involved in the affairs in New Orleans were murdered (Mary, Ferrie + the Monkey Virus: The True Story of an Underground Medical Laboratory, Edward T. Haslam).
A number of UFO crashes are mentioned, such as the 1964 Big Thicket, Texas crash, and others, in 1958 (Arizona) and Northern New Mexico, near Taos, in 1961: “….the retrieval teams were overcome with nausea and dizziness, and at least two died of a ‘flesh-eating virus – kind of like Ebola’….” In the Big Thicket case, the team from Fort Hood were “garbed in biohazard and protection suits.” Will, a witness at Big Thicket, often wondered how many spheres may have landed, unknown to the military, and may “have possibly unleashed such viruses upon the local population.” (p. 171)
An alleged UFO with occupants crashed on January 23, 1974 on the Berwyn Mountain Range in North Wales, Cader Berwyn.
“….other sources – some with official backgrounds – claim to have heard of distinctly similar stories and rumors that link the Berwyn saga of 1974 with Porton Down, the British equivalent of Fort Detrick.” (p. 188) Porton Down became focal in the December 1980 Rendlesham Forest, Suffolk, England UFO case. “….a number of personnel from Porton Down were reportedly dispatched to the area and, dressed in some sort of full-body protection suit, entered the woods – for reasons that remain unknown.”
Soldiers in Full-body Protection Suits are Often Called Upon to Investigate
The United States and Mexican governments became involved in the Chihuahua, Mexico crash of August, 1974. A document entitled Research Findings on the Chihuahua Disk Crash said: “Unfortunately what caused the deaths of the Mexican recovery team is not known. Speculation ranges from a chemical released from the disk as a result or illness by any of the recovery team.” (p. 203) “….reference to an apparently lethal biological agent present at the scene is very worrying,” said the authors. (p. 204)
The authors concentrated on accounts of animals, particularly cattle, being surgically and professionally mutilated throughout the U.S, especially the Midwest. Debunkers laid the blame to predator damage, “despite the phenomenal number of mutilations and the repeated sightings of anomalous aerial lights, all of which suggested that some form of coordinated operation was under way.”
Unmarked helicopters, tripod marks, lack of footprints, traces of tranquilizing drugs, anti-coagulants, pharmaceuticals, synthetic amphetamines: “Among those law enforcement agents who have thoroughly investigated these bovine excision sites…there is a consensus that some kind of medical testing is taking place.” (Ted Oliphant, police officer in Fyffe, Alabama.)
As a means of biological warfare by aliens, the authors explored the theory that “suggests cattle are mutilated primarily to harvest HIV antibodies and virus from blood in quantity and to obtain information relating to possible HIV transmission in humans…” (p. 244) They warn that this is still very much unproven, and they cite a Los Alamos National Laboratory study that HIV-1 virus was first established about 1930.
A “strange cluster of deaths,” 2001 to 2005, of numerous individuals working within the elite field of microbiology is examined in detail by the authors. Some had connection to the British chemical and biological defense establishment at Porton Down. “….those with intimate knowledge of the alien virus may, in the period 2001-2005, have also have been targeted for termination by majestic 12.”
BLUE BOY REVELATIONS
Alternate theories are found in a “Blue Boy” document entitled UFO Reports and Classified Projects: The CIA Perspective that are just as sinister but completely earthly: At the end of World War II, the Japanese Unit 731 was granted permission to continue biological warfare activities in “experimental platforms” with “guinea-pig crews.” Discussed as well are alleged V-2 rocket crashes carrying “biological warfare experiments developed by I.G. Farben.” I.G. Farben was the company “that made the Zyklon-B gas that was utilized in the Nazi death camps of the Second World War.”
Supposedly, in the files Timothy Cooper, as provided by a source at the CIA, “Blue Boy” detailed “a further theory that links Roswell with down-to-earth (as opposed to extraterrestrial) biological warfare activities.” BlossomProject, for example, was responsible for the first biological experiments in space.
One of the most controversial chapters is the 23rd chapter wherein a “John” told about his year as a custodian and editor of the Majestic files from 1943 to 1968. “John” alleged that this “History Department” was at an overall location that he surmised to be Area 51. He was told that this location “was involved in the development of prototype and radical aircraft, biological warfare, chemical warfare, exotic weaponry and ‘something else.’”
According to a document called “S-1,” MJ-12 ceased to exist in 1969 and became a private concern “financed by big money and big science.”
An early document John saw was from 1943 and concerned “tests and experiments on a group of unusual-looking people.” The entire paper-trail appeared to have been destroyed by people involved in this project. One document titled Autopsies – Bodies Unknown Origin 47 dealt with the bodies of eight strange people found in the New Mexico desert in the summer of 1947.
MANY LOOSE ENDS
Tyler Kokjohn is a professor at microbiology at the Midwestern University Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. To quote Dr. Tyler Kokjohn: “The authors present an astonishing tale based heavily on falsified documents and sometimes indirect witness testimony. In the end, the story between the lines they probably never intended to reveal – of incurious investigators and fatal omissions – was the more interesting because it appears to be true.”
“The book is fundamentally a one-sided interpretation of alleged facts extracted from written materials of dubious provenance and/or obtained from witness testimony much of which is indirect hear-say. Whether MJ-12 and other Roswell incident-related documents are authentic has long been controversial. Unfortunately, the accounts provided by the authors do not dispel doubts, they increase them.”
Many investigators retained a cautious but quizzical approach, to quote Bill Hamilton, executive director of Skywatch International, Incorporated: “I have not made up my mind yet on these documents and I think it is going to take further involvement to make assessments of the arguments both pro and con…If there is some truth, even a modicum of truth, in these documents, then the implications are far-reaching and I am sure that you can all use your imagination to see this.”
Robert M. Wood spoke at a July, 2001 MUFON Symposium in Irvine, California on the Mounting Evidence For Authenticity of MJ-12 Documents: “Ever since the first ‘leaked’ MJ-12 Eisenhower Briefing Document in 1984 describing a top-secret crash recovery program, the authenticity of UFO documents has been questioned. With the continuing exposure of hundreds of classified pages by numerous unidentified sources, the evidence favoring authenticity is mounting. This paper will update the status of the available documents, generally what they say and provide a concise status of the issues regarding authenticity, including the answers to those with a skeptical view. Of particular significance will be the results of research and forensic studies, including those on 22 pages on original paper, where chromatographic ink dating and other state of the art techniques clearly indicate that the documents were likely to have been created long ago and cannot be modern high tech fakes. The classic comparisons with archival authentic documents show the expected similarities, and the content is shown to be consistent with numerous arcane facts known to only scholars in historiography.”
One of Many of Hidden Documents Called the Mj-12
“Difficulties with identical signatures will be explored,” Wood continued, “including the astonishing possibility that the sophisticated document cover-up started in the early stages of documentation in the State Department in the 40s. Remarkably, the most likely hypothesis is that we are seeing a leak of copies of genuine documents held in personal files for decades; the conclusion is that we have had a stunningly successful UFO research cover-up for five decades and if these crashes and recoveries occurred, such documents ought to exist.”
Dr. Robert Wood has a Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Colorado and a Ph.D. in physics from Cornell. He enjoyed a 43-year career at McDonnell Douglas managing research and development projects and has spent over thirty years privately investigating extraterrestrial related phenomena. He began research into the Majestic-12 Documents in 1995.

“Whether genuine or not, the files were carefully crafted, told an astonishing story and, again, promoted the idea,” said the authors, “that alien viruses were a reality. Not only that: those same viruses were incredibly deadly too.”
Recovery Crew Discovers the Alien had Escaped – Movie “The Thing” (1951)
Steve Erdmann – Independent Investigative Journalist
The Russian Anthrax BugSoviet “Superbugs”: In 1979, a rare outbreak of anthrax disease in the city of Sverdlovsk killed nearly 70 people. The Soviet government publicly blamed contaminated meat, but U.S. intelligence sources suspected the outbreak was linked to secret weapons work at a nearby army lab.
The nine-page “burned” memo, stamped TOP SECRET/MJ-12, is named because it was snatched from a fire before being destroyed, which is why it is discolored and disintegrating. Unlike many of the Majestic documents, this one is an original carbon with an Eagle watermark characteristic of government work, but so far forensic laboratories have been unable to trace it. The memo is from the Director of Central Intelligence MJ-1 to MJ-2, MJ-3, MJ-7, in reference to Project MAJESTIC and JEHOVAH, Project EVIRO, Project PARASITE, and Project PARHELION. Although no dated is given, its content directly suggests the month of September. The year is estimated to be in the early 1960s and is still under investigation.
Bob Lazar has come forth in a tell-all book about his excursions as an engineer and scientist at the mysterious S4 installation near the secretive Area 51 in Groom Lake, Nevada. Lazar writes in plain English that is suspenseful and relentless. If true, we are confronted, once again, with a powerful and secret reality that could leave us suspended in mid-air beyond common sensibilities.
“…of credible witnesses, including Black Aces commander Daniel Fravor about the capabilities of the craft he encountered, have only bolstered Lazar’s story…Fravor thinks Lazar is legit.” (p. xxvii, George Knapp, chief investigative reporter for KLAS-TV, Las Vegas)
(DREAM LAND, Bob Lazar, Simon & Schuester, Interstellarbooks.com, 2033 San Elijio Avenue, #403, Cardiff by the Sea 92007, 2019, 243 pages, $23.99)
Lazar was attempting to get a higher security clearance than the Q Clarence that he had, moving him to a Majestic Clearance for him to work at the EG&G Special Projects Division. Lazar had worked in scientific communities before, not to mention a lucrative photo development business he owned. Lazar had some publicity from his proclaimed “Jet Car.” Becoming dispirited in working for Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), he set-up Lazar Energy Systems. Lazar’s interest in pyrotechnics was hand in hand with his occupation at Fairchild Electronics as a technician repairing broke circuit boards and enabled him to attend school at Caltech. Lazar equally made some profitable business investments, one paying about $100,000 a month at the time he purchased it.
“Success, for us, and for most people, meant making money,” says Lazar. “If it took running three separate businesses, not taking vacations, and having work-related issues on your mind twenty-four hours a day and seven days a week, then that was a price we were willing to pay.”
These pressures, plus his wife’s (Carol) pancreatic cancer, deep depression led to her suicide. Lazar remarried to “Tracy” in April of 1986 in Las Vegas. Due to Tracy’s encouragement and Lazar’s self-determination, his photo business continued—plus his interest in science and academic life. Lazar built his own Windhorst Machine as well as a Tesla coil. Lazar’s model rocket launches at Salisbury Park were sometimes successful but dangerous.
One of Lazar’s “home projects” was his interest in Plasma Containment and magneto dynamics (MHD)

Eager in continuing his engineering career with Los Angeles National Laboratories at their Meson Physics Facility, Lazar wished to tour the Van de Graff generator.
“I felt like I had stepped into the world of science fiction,” says Lazar. “I was moving among men and women with an intellectual capacity that was as nearly great as the power these machines were generating.” After Lazar was hired, he found his co-workers “serious minded and watchful.”
Lazar attended MIT on bequest of Meson..
MEETING EDWARD TELLER
Lazar met Edward Teller while Teller was preparing to give a lecture in Los Angles. Teller had been called The Father of the Hydrogen Bomb, part of the Manhattan Project, and Teller worked with renown scientist Werner Heisenberg Weis Bohr, advocated for the Strategic Dense Initiative (Star Wars Defense), and worked on the precursor project called Excalibur.
“As it turned out, I got a job as a result of that meeting with Teller,” says Lazar, “and, later, a whole lot more attention than I ever wanted or needed.” (p. 32)
Lasar began his rigorous routine trips to EG+G’s remote site at Groom Lake; one time, he was led to a facility inside a large hill with an entry door to what had become to be known as S4. His handler, Dennis Mariani, was the other person on the bus in that trip, and it was also the time Lazar was given his identification badge which would work as an optical scanner. Immediately was a quick medical examination followed by a trip to another office where Lazar was asked to examine a stack of folders that gave “overviews” of a “Project Galileo”; there was a mention of “extraterrestrials.” Apparently, some kind of “accident” had been involved in Galileo beforehand.
Project Galileo apparently consisted of several “divisions,” each did not work in concert sequentially and did not share information with one another, no communication between “work groups” was allowed, other than their direct work partners or parties which would include alienation, dismissal or prosecution. Project Looking dealt the materials side of the craft. Project Sidekick explored craft weaponization.
“And here was an object that was claimed,” says Lazar “to be made of a single material!”
Lazar speculates that the technology came from somewhere other than the United States, and it was his function to understand “how” it worked and “if” we could produce it. Someone had filed a possible “origin” of the craft and had determined that it came from the Zeta Reticuli star system: 39 million light years from Earth. A “biological” folder contained black and white photos of a “humanoid organism,” a torso, arm, legs and a “differentiated” mass of tissue in the mid cavity, and other medical notes that were hard to understand, confusing Lazar to the point of losing focus on reality.
Dennis Mariani led Lazar into a special laboratory and introduced him to Barry Castillo. Their assignment focus was a Garbage can-sized cylinder “with no seams, no welds, no fasteners, no sharp edges…It didn’t appear to have been cast, machined, molded, formed, or jointed.” Barry called it an “emitter”; a half-sphere of the same color and material and explained as a “reactor.” Objects placed tween the two points—whether they be candle flames, golf balls, watches—where affected by an “unseen force” that the two researchers could best described as “anti-gravity.”
“Quantum physicists’ postulate that gravitons exist as a subatomic particle,” says Lasar. “These are massless elementary particles that transmit the force of gravity. How they could be created or destroyed is not yet clear.”
A “force” between the “emitter” and the “reactor” caused a black dot at the bottom of the “emitter’ as an absence of light: It was being bent by gravity—a considerable of intense gravity that the “crew” suspected would take Terawatts of power. All that the “crews” were “slight visual distortions” and no residual heat but was one-hundred percent efficient energy transfer.
“The question of how this thing worked spun around and around again in my mind,” says Lazar. “Somewhere I suppose the question of how this event could be happening was faintly playing, but far too softly to matter.”
The two-man crew concluded that the reactor could be “powered up” by placing two objects in “proximity to one another.” That there also had been “limits” they also surmised in which an “accident” had previously come about with loss of life. Perhaps, something to do with a “triangular bet” was in place as to how the system functioned.
Lazar’s schedule to work at Groom Lake was almost spasmodic and unpredictably cruel, but his female companion, Tracy, swore she could carry the burden, backing-up their private business. But, as it turned out, “I was being run ragged most days,” says Lazar, “adding to what would eventually be a heap of stress.”
Security was intense and armed personnel ‘shadowed’ the crews’ existence in the confines of the laboratory; even when they left the lab to use the restroom or cafeteria – to, in, and from.
Only once did Lazar suspect the crafts might be ‘experimental terrestrial aircraft’ when he spied a typical ‘flying saucer’ and was told to keep his hands off any objects. “The powers wanted to understand how this craft’s propulsion system works,” recalls Lasar. The reactor was comprised of three parts: the housing, the tower, and the fuel. The crew determined that the Reactor was being bombarded by a “relatively intense field of radiation within it.”
A dismay in intellectual stagnation enveloped the two when they contemplated what kind of ‘fuel’ was used by the object; using scrapings from the fuel ‘insert’ into a gas chromatograph which indicated that said fuel was a single element. Later, mass spectral spectrometry and neutron activation analysis indicated the same thing.
“I wanted to be engaged in meaningful work and Tracy and I were ‘both adaptable,’” says Lazar, “and would find a way to accommodate the changes that loomed on the horizon for us.”
A mysterious aspect of Lazar’s private life were men parked habitually in a car only feet from his home.
Investigating the possibility of the “fuel” might have been machined from a cone rather than “out of a single flat sheet,” an ingot of the material was sent on a “closed flight” to the Los Alamos machinery division along with instructions. Lazar understood that any residue left from the machining would be returned to S4
Dennis instructed Lazar to carry a .22 Cal Smith & Wesson “at all times you’re off-site,” Mariani said. Lazar thought this had traces to do with his possible obtaining a Q-Clearance.
Through his friend, Gene Huff, he became acquainted with friend, John Lear, son of Bill Lear of the Lear Jet fame; mainly because of Huff’s inadvertent mention that Lazar worked at LANL Lazar later learned that Lear had done some work with the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). Gene never pressed Lazar about his duties at Area 51, but ,coincidentally, his job at S4 seemed to bring about an interview with Dennis at a Las Vegas Police Department followed by two men from the Office of Federal Investigation (FBI) showing up at Lazar’s home. One agent was Mike Thigpen, and they very respectfully investigated the household.
Lazar said to Dennis shortly following: “We’re working with an unknown inside a large unknown. That’ s not a great situation to be in, especially if others have known that they could share with us.’’
Not long after this, Lazar and Barry Castillo were escorted to a hanger facility.
The three approached a familiar saucer-shaped craft fifty-feet of so in diameter and about twenty feet tall. No seams inside or out, no panel lines, welds, rivets, or fasteners, cool to the touch and very smooth. The same material appeared throughout the craft as if cooled into shape in some injection moldings. The seats appeared to have been made into the same fashion as if rounded flower petals. They saw no light witches, dials, displays, and a length of pipe ran from the ceiling and exited in the floor.
The second level of the craft had a spot where the reactor sat, the piping ran to the amplifier, and additional tubing ran to the emitter at the bottom of the craft. A “platform section,” or the pedestal, was where the craft rested. They weren’t allowed to explore the third and top “cockpit” section.
Both Lazar and Castillo began to doubt the traditional Roswell story because beings advanced enough to build such machines should not have any difficulty coping with Earthly weather systems and related phenomena.
In eight bay areas of hangers were several more similar crafts.
The ‘crew’ watched as one craft lifted off the ground emitting a blue glow discharge, and its thirty-foot flight had no sound, but they did have a view of the emitter in action in issuing gravitational waves. The craft landed and Dennis instructed the two to “get back to work.”
Lazar speculated that what they saw was a kind of negative gravity or anti-gravity that removed the gravitational force ahead of the direction that three emitters were pointing. They speculated the emitter allowed the craft to move in multiple directions and could distance objects to it. “…time and gravity are inextricably linked,’ says Lazar. “If you controlled gravity, you also controlled time…could have come from another dimension…some point in the future.”
NO PERSONAL FEELINGS
The security oath that Lazar signed covered all aspects of his personal life, discussions, dissatisfaction with coworkers, the food in the cafeteria, sleep, no-pay checks, and even his personal feelings. The watchers that usually parked down that street no longer hid. A police patrol car dispatched to the scene on behalf of Lazar did little to capture the stalkers—they were merely released. They were not even trying to stalk but came out in the open.
Occasionally, Lazar would meet with his work-out partner “Muriel” for gymnastics. One time, Lazar’s Datsun 2802 was unlocked. He slighted it off as his oversight. However, Lazar was shocked to find his car with both door “…wide open, looking like a fix wing aircraft.” Lazar says he “…did experience that gut-level twinge and burn of adrenaline kicking in.” Nothing was taken from the car, and it didn’t seem like a usual robbery.
All this certainly didn’t seem normal, nor was having his phones tapped, or having signed a document “that essentially stated that I agreed to waive every one of my Constitutional rights…” All of this indicated that Lazar was under strict control with warnings.
Lazar concluded that it was time to share all this knowledge with someone or fear he “might wind up somewhere in the Nevada desert with a bullet in my head and a fabricated suicide note left on him…” Lazar selected his close friend, Gene, and Lazar stuck to only items that he could “definitely validate”: he showed Gene the only paycheck he had ever received from the United States Department of Naval Intelligence—$958.11. Lazar declared to his friends that the “dollars – to – headache ratio is way out of balance.”
Lazar’s next ‘insurance revelation’ was his wife, Tracy, leaving out a few personalized details. “I can’t see you making up something like this,” was Tracy’s concluding statement.
Lazar’s next ‘insurance policy’ confession was to John Lear who “seemed more curious than alarmed.” Lear proved himself as trustworthy in several incidents, such as allowing Bob and Tracy to accompany him on some of his Aniak, Alaska flights.
The sense of ease that momentarily emerged was suddenly destroyed when another “interrogation” was conducted at his home concerning what kind of code (their use of BUFON and GUFON) he and Gene were using. Apparently, privacy was nonexistent. They demanded Lazar to reveal all information about Gene Huff.
Lazar concludes with the unavoidable: “…it was time to make some changed.” “…my days at S4 were over.” He stopped wondering about his security clearance: “I wanted something definitely to be said or done.” (p. 157)
Lazar knew that S4 did a “high performance test flight usually on Wednesday about eight o’clock. John Lear could ‘check it out’ with his 8-inch-diameter Celestron telescope. John would pack the crew in his Winnebago motorhome and cover the 150 miles of desert to their destination, a spot along Groom Lake Road with their “equipment” —telescope, binoculars and video camera.
Indeed, an orange light appeared above Papoose Mountain but was moving in increments of split seconds at about 700 mph in intervals from different points.
MARCH 29 AND APRIL 12, 1984
Lazar compared the method of investigation at S4 as “out of the window, where the scientific method didn’t consist of some definitive steps, but were more scattershot…first here, then there, then up, then down.”
A second UFO Watch was planned with Tracy and Lazar in one car, Gene in a rental car. A ’Jason’ also joined them. This time the light appeared to draw closer to their rendezvous point: the glowing object moved towards them. Jason said, ‘It was like I couldn’t see it move. One second it was there. The next second it was over there. Almost like a strobe effect or something.” (p. 178)
The crews’ next trip of UFO Spotting was on April 12, another Wednesday. This time they made some evasive maneuvers on the roads they travelled. There was one new face, Kristen. Again, the light seemed to advance toward them. To cover their tracks, our ‘heroes’ turned onto a dirt road. Suddenly, local security confronted the UFO Watchers, as Lazar snuck away into the brush alongside of the cars. Lazar rejoined the group once the security car was far enough away…. only to be confronted by a second police officer who wanted to know how four mysterious people had been reported, now there was five. This agent went through the process of comparing their faces to their driver’s licenses.
Dennis Mariani and Bob Lazar met the next day in what appeared to be an atmosphere of an ominous warning. This took place at the Indian Springs Air Force Base, and Dennis pummeled Lazar with comments and questions. A gun was made evident.
The hardest shock to Lazar was when Mariani placed a folder of surveillance revealing that wife Tracy had been in an on-going romantic affair since February 1984: tax dollars at work, and a farewell to one’s privacy. “…and how cliched the whole thing was – with a co-worker that was a man whose contact I’d encouraged and helped pay for,” says Lazar, “…a flight instructor…complicated and conflicted seemed to be the buzz words for everything I experienced at S4.”
“Nothing I’d ever done or said could justify the pain she was inflicting on me,” Lazar says. “I would never do anything like that to her.”
During the second week of May 1989 someone fired a gun shot at his auto when on the on-ramp to the highway via Charleston Boulevard. The shot deflated a tire; two drivers sped away.
THE RESUE PLAN
John Lear and Gene Huff laid-out a rescue for Lazar: More exposure on the George Knapp ABC affiliated TV show. They chose John Lear to appear with no fanfare. Lazar was to appear in silhouette and use a pseudonym of “Dennis” in their broadcast of May 14, 1989.
Dennis called Lazar and made a vague threat, and he later called again to say that a “personal level” interview was needed. It would be a Las Vegas Casino appointment on a Saturday. Gene Huff and a Joe Vaninerri were to be watchmen of the meeting. Lazar saw Dennis, Lazar demanded to know “what this was all about”— and Dennis disappeared into the crowd.
Lazar’s friends discussed the events as only an interlude. The S4 surveillance teams seemed to have disappeared.
“I’d lost one wife to disease and now a second one to work and infidelity,” says Lazar. “No matter how strong you think you are mentally, or how amicable the partner, a divorce preys on your sense of self and self-worth.”
George Knapp set-up another TV session for Memorial Day 1984.
“As far me, I picked up the pieces eventually,” says Lazar. “Over the long haul, things did get better. I’ve spoken a few times at conferences and done some interviews. I’ve had Hollywood film and TV producers contact me. In the scripts they had written they tried to show me as an Action Hero, leaping onto the hoods of cars escaping the bad guys. I’m no Action Hero. If I wasn’t then, I’m certainly not one now. I’m no kind of hero.”

An infamous ranch called the Skinwalker Ranch lies in the heart of ancient Native American Lands in Utah. A number of Indian reservations surround the ranch, influencing residents in rich, traditional culture and the spirituality of their ancestors. Asazi, Fremont, Ute, Paiute, Shossone, and Uintah Indian legends speak of “portals” to the spiritual world, often fraught with forms of witchcraft.
There were two types of spiritual tribal shaman members: Medicine Men and Skinwalkers. Skinwalkers evolved into black magic, deception, and cursing, inflicting pain and suffering. They could not enter the dwellings of victims (unless invited in) but could lure them into the open where they could instill fear or harm. A Skinwalker was a shape-shifter, often a mortal man, but also a women or child, that could appear as an animal (a wolf, bear or eagle) extending those attributes and traveling by supernatural means.
A typical story involved a female Indian newspaper deliverer whose automobile was accosted by a “half man, half beast” with red eyes and a “misshapen” arm, opening her car door and trying to grab her baby. She managed to drive her car off, but the creature kept pace with her vehicle and still attempted kidnapping. When she pulled into the parking lot of a convenience store, the patrons chased the creature away.

The Skinwalker Ranch (known for reports of hyper-mysterious happenings) “consists of 480 acres located in North-East Utah south of US Interstate 40, which enters Utah from North-Western Colorado, winds through miles of sparsely populated territory – interrupted only by the city of Ver Nal and passes through Ballard on its way west.”
The Ranch property is located along the southern border of the Uintah-Quray Indian Reservation near the Bottle Hollow Reservoir, north of the Ranch; Road 27505 leads from Hill Top Road east along the northern edge of the Ranch property. There is a North Gate, South Gate, and an East Gate. The ranch house is located in the north-east corner of the property.
The Skinwalker Ranch
BAASS AND BIGELOW
Many of the earliest strange events are related in Colm Kelleher and George Knapp’s 2005 book Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah (Paraview Pocket Books, December 6, 2005).
Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies (BAASS) bought the property in 1996 and established the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) to investigate many of the incidents. About 2009, Bigelow entered into a short-lived agreement with the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON).
Gate Leading to the Skinwalker Ranch
Indian legends in that area bespoke of a Trans mutative creature, both half animal, and half human. Some creatures took the form of “apparitions and whirlwinds.”
Earliest records indicate that a Ken Meyers and his wife Edith lived on the property from the 1930s till 1987. Not much was reported about paranormal activity on the ranch then, but the local Indians had a “wage pool” as to how long the Meyers would stay “before being driven off.”
The Meyers had placed deadbolt locks on almost all the doors, even inside of the house. The Meyers also owned large and unfriendly dogs chained just outside the door leading into the house.
Another neighbor said one of his cows disappeared about 1996. And the man’s nephew, Dean Derhak of Salt Lake City, said he was riding a horse on his uncle’s property in 1980 when he saw a silver sphere on the ground of what later became the Sherman ranch.
“It was fairly big, about 30 to 40 feet wide. It looked like a bowl upside down,” said Derhak, who was eleven-years-of-age at the time. “It scared me and I took off.”
The farm was bought by Terry and Gwen Sherman in 1994. One of the first phenomena the Shermans noticed were geometric circles of varying diameters that appeared as if some heavy bodies left their impressions.
Further investigation, however, revealed three of the families living nearby have experienced unusual activity. The Uintah County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that John Garcia, who lives east of the ranch, reported two of his cows were mutilated earlier in 1996.
Some of Sherman’s cattle were found to be mutilated, drained of blood; one was cored through the anus and gave off strange chemical odors. Four other cattle disappeared. One cow appeared to have been pulled up leaving scorched branches..
Roosevelt, Utah veterinarian Dan Dennis said that eventually ten mutilated cattle were reported on the Sherman ranch.
The Shermans also had their share of UFOs: strange light sightings and strange voices. Voices were heard coming from about 25 feet over the heads of two family members. Gwen Sherman witnessed a manned aircraft, and she had witnessed a figure over seven feet tall exit the craft.
At other times, a 40-foot object and a football-field-sized aircraft (both with multi-colored lights) were sighted. Baseball-sized blue lights were seen to ‘‘both emerge from and disappear into orange-colored portals, and behaved as if controlled…hovering…(then) high speeds.”

In one instance, after sending three of their dogs to chase the light, one of the dogs began crying out. Later, three “greasy blobs” were found in three “scorch spots.”
Residents in the area reported seeing a “gigantic” craft with many lights. UFO historian Joseph Hicks had investigated more than 400 similar sightings in the area..
Bigelow and NIDS had up to 15 scientists and PhDs working by 2001 at any one time on the Ranch.
A particular mutilation case involved a pregnant cow. Later, a large foot-ball-field-sized UFO was sighted. “Pete Pickup,” a NIDS investigator, noted that “while blood and tissue samples were still fresh,” a mutilated cow was found. The left eye and part of the left ear were removed “with a sharp surgical instrument.” The UFO was spotted on June 25, 2000, and had “intermittent flashing of a separate light source and making some rhythmic sound.”
BAASS investigator Dr. Colm Kelleher, who had a Ph.D. in Biochemistry from Holy Trinity in Dublin, interviewed two Ranch investigators who photographed and recorded strange tracks. The two investigators (designated as investigators 1 and 2) reported a howl and a “distinct, foul odor” that the family reported to them. The smell was described as “very putrid sulfur, rotten flesh.”
Investigators next discovered and photographed strange tracks on the property (p. 51). The tracks appeared to have had a strange “gait” or step in the snow. An Indian administrator, who was very familiar with wildlife trails, could not identify the tracks.
“And there was no snow kicked up in front of these tracks,” said investigator 1. “There was no snow kicked behind the tracks. Whatever left these tracks (that) we obtained video and photographs of, walked up not only with great dexterity but easily.”
Kelleher and the investigators discussed reports of a creature that was reported in the Fort Duchesne area, jumping “literally from roof to roof,” about four houses and then disappeared. The creature was described as a muscular, hairy creature with “big round eyes” and pointed ears.
Artist Depiction of the Skinwalker
“Whatever, it was proved elusive. The surveillance cameras that were installed atop telephone poles were attacked and dismantled, but whatever did it was invisible. Dr. Colm Kelleher of NIDS said, ‘We checked the time stamps on this pole versus this pole. We looked at when the camera lost power and nothing was on the tape. There should have been something visible because the range of these things is pretty good.’ As yet, the mystery of Skinwalker Ranch remains unsolved. Kelleher said, ‘If anything, it has created more questions that I had when I came into this thing.’”
BURIAL GROUNDS AND BALLS OF LIGHT
BAASS investigator collected reports of hovering lights, orbs of light, as well as reports of a “two-legged creature, dog” – seen sometimes near Indian or tribal burial grounds along the mesa known as Skinwalker Ridge.
“…I asked Bob (a witness) about the smell associated with this dog creature because everybody has talked about his smell,” said one investigator. “Horrible, horrible smell.”
Ryan Skinner tells the readers about balls of light that landed with “black, thick smoke” that materialized into a “wolf.” Skinner says that sightings of the wolf “have been around the property for at least 30 years and there is a picture of it on the internet, and it hasn’t aged a day.”
The Wolf Spirit.
A number of ‘Remote Viewers’ applied their talents and came to a varied and confusing picture: “The psychic images perceived both individually and collectively by the viewers are general and without much detail.”
“The phenomena is mostly hallucinations,” says Skinner, “there may be some spirits from Indian grounds – not too sure; I also believe what you see/experience is purely on what mindset you have.”
INVESTIGATORS: TRIPOD, HOBBY HORSE, AND OTHERS
Logs of investigators “Tripod” and “Hobby Horse” ran the gamut of mysterious events: a missing knife, a sighting of a blue UFO, orb phenomena, poltergeist happenings, mystery sounds, camera malfunctions, shadow images, and medium phenomena.
“On the other hand,” says Skinner, “both the Ouija Board experiment and the experiences provided by Rocky suggest a yet strong presence of the spirituality associated with the original Native American inhabitants of the region, and which manifests itself in the form of paranormal entities such as Shadow People and the Skinwalker.”
Investigator “Ranch Hand” speculated that the “presence” moves in and out of some “dimensional portal” and are “relative to the state of mind and level of the expectations of the individual.”.
A depiction of a Skinwalker
Another investigator named “Rich” gave his suggestions as to what is taking place on the Ranch:
# The phenomena seems to be a “nexus” of all kinds of alien activity, the traditional as well as the atypical.
# Humans are the key to something that holds importance to them. They need ‘us’ to survive.
# Sometimes ‘abduction’ should be viewed as a universal, spiritual experience, maybe even a karmic contract..
FURTHER STRANGE INCIDENTS
Other Ranch investigators spoke of further paranormal happenings. “Jeremy K” told of his encounters: “My experience involves seeing strange lights, white, blue, red and faint cloudy lights. Also very weird noises in the river bottom near the line of cotton trees. I could actually hear something very large breathing, but with light feet. I would get within 20 to 30 feet of me and freeze.”
Ryan Skinner speaks about the reports of a mystery helicopter that he has also seen. The helicopter made no noise. Investigator “Jeremy K” said on November 6, 2013: “We sat down and there was a completely blacked out helicopter flying above and around us. It was the weirdest thing. You couldn’t hear standard helicopter noises.” (p. 197)
Skinner presents stories and testimonies from neighbors and Indians associated with the Skinwalker Mesa. Most offer interesting insights as to what could be happening there.
Using a typical UFO sighting as an example, Skinner shares some of his personal feelings about witnesses that seem indifferent to their contact with the paranormal.
“I never could fathom people’s reactions to seeing one of these things,” says Skinner. “It was like a mental defensive block or something. People for the most part absolutely were frightened to death. So they ignored it totally.”
Skinner tells of a UFO ‘disc’ hovering over a baseball game, for nearly twenty minutes, everyone looked once, and then ignored the UFO. “I can’t explain reactions like that, can you?” asks Skinner. “I wondered was it (the UFO) spraying those zombies with pixie dust or what?”
OTHER HOT SPOTS
The Utah Ranch is not the only “Hot spot” Skinner writes about. There are, apparently, other areas of concentrated paranormal activity around the globe, similar to the Skinwalker mesa. Skinner talks about a Texas ‘hot spot’ at the end of an airfield “runway” north of the Alabama-Coushatta Indian Reservation that once belonged to the Indians. It is now covered by extensive tracts of trees, brush and “some unidentified evil.” Like the Utah Ranch, similar phenomena decorated the site over the years.
“I am not convinced 100% whether this was all alien, or a mixture of the paranormal sort of a portal being used by many, many entities,” says Skinner. “It’s a dimensional thing, I guess. Makes one wonder whether or not some of the disc and other oddly shaped craft are simply vehicles which carry these beings from one dimension into another, not intergalactic spacecraft.”
Skinner concludes that paranormal activity, indeed, focused on the property:
“…most of it was categorized as aerial anomalies; the resident does acknowledge encounters consistent with Native American legend, specifically the manifestation of what appeared to be Indian spirits and the appearance of wolf-like entities.”
TROUBLE ON THE RANCH
BAASS had not been without its share of criticism, especially in its NIDS phrase. One of its more unsettling conflicts revolved around finding several “rods” on the ranch which investigators for NIDS and MUFON projected a story that they seemed to be the same Element 115 that Bob Lazar of Area 51 fame said that he worked with as a technician in Area 51’s hidden retrieved UFO lairs.
Aerospace scientist John Schuessler said that the rods were carbon and not element 115: “As for the rods found on the Skinwalker Ranch, I was on the NIDS Scientific Advisory Board back in those days and can verify that rods were found. They were not heavy Element 115 rods. Instead, they were thin carbon rods that are used in arc lamps to make very bright lights in field operations. I have personally used this type of rods in arc lamp operations many years ago.”
According to Schuessler, Element 115 would have been far too unstable to have existed in the wild, open ranchland.
James Carrion, MUFON, said this demonstrated a certain amount of carelessness that NIDS and BAASS investigators needed to avoid:
“It appears that once again in Ufology there are more questions than answers; common fare for a field where the waters are muddied but never cleared. If you consider yourself a truth seeker then perhaps it is time to take a stand against these forces of ambiguity that seek only to obscure the truth rather than bring it to light. It is time to promote truth and not a mystery in a field that has too many mysteries already. It is time to reveal the truth by not compromising ethics or principles or by allowing truth to be censored. It is time to stop falling prey to fear and lies but instead to hunt the Skinwalker forces of deception in their own territory. Who is up for a hunting trip?”
(Bob Lazar never associated with the claim that Element 115 was found on the Skinwalker ranch. Many Fortean investigators claim, besides, that the jury is still out on the Bob Lazar question, as some of his claims seem to be vindicated over a period of time. Though Element 115 did not exist in 1989, subsequently it was invented and discovered in 2004, when Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Russia (JINR) discovered isotopes of Element 115, known as “ununpentium.”)
(Lazar continued to be believed by several researchers who felt that Lazar was truly involved in UFO projects, indicated by his passing of lie-detection tests and hypnosis and the testimony of researchers such as Norio Hayakawa, John Lear, Gene Huff, Mike Thigpen, Boyd Bushman and Terry Tavernetti, to mention a few.
“This agency has been identified as providing funding via a research grant with Bigelow Aerospace for Skinwalker Ranch. We are unable and unwilling to provide evidence to support this claim. This funding was provided with the oversight of an unnamed high-level politician and several military advisors. Currently, the understanding is that the agency has withdrawn funding, but will reallocate in the future. On a side note, three high ranking military officials have frequented the property on more than one occasion. One of these officers was a three-star general and a CIA representative. The branch of the military that the general represents is unknown as well as his identity. However what is known is that a faction of the US government does fund research and security activity in conjunction with Bob Bigelow on the Ranch…Contact: it’s a black project and it is going to remain that way!”
The Late Robert Bigelow
Alfred Weber wrote in “Robert Bigelow’s and MUFON’s Hybrid UFO Investigation…” that Bigelow, MUFON, and the FAA created a special UFO reporting form that they hope pilots will use to report aerial phenomena.
A BAASS UFO hotline staff was on duty to receive UFO reports. One of the special areas said Weber, that BAASS was interested in were “cases where physical effects of a UFO are reported or where ‘living beings’ are allegedly sighted or where ‘reality transformation’ is said to occur.”
The Star Team Impact Project (SIP) was to investigate “cases where physical effects of a UFO are reported or where ‘living beings’ are allegedly sighted or where ‘reality transformation’ is said to occur.” Weber also discovered: “On examination of confidential BAASS-MUFON documents that were anonymously leaked to this reporter, it is clear that a clash of corporate and non-profit cultures and lack of mutual communication framework between an accounting-oriented corporate contractor and a mission-driven volunteer organization – rather than any wrong action – triggered the temporary suspension and review of the hybrid arrangement that parties in both organizations seem to want to continue.”
Billy Cox, a writer for The HeraldTribune, likewise gave a revealing summary of Bigelow’s plans in the paranormal industry (Wednesday, June 9, 2010): “Robert Bigelow, the zillionaire hotelier who wants to build the world’s first private space station, doesn’t do much media…In a nutshell: With NASA phasing out of the launch business, Bigelow’s aggressive development of inflatable habitation modules — and his willingness to invest up to half a billion of his own $$$ to make it happen — put him at the forefront of the privatization of space. He and anyone else wanting to exploit the high frontier will need wheels to get there. And the Obama administration plans to spend $6 billion over the next five years to encourage the private sector to produce the next generation of launch vehicles. “His space stations are not his only interest in space. ‘I’ve been a researcher and student of U.F.O.’s for many, many years,’ Mr. Bigelow said. ‘Anybody that does research, if people bother to do quality research, comes away absolutely convinced. You don’t have to have personal encounters.’ “Other views that run counter to mainstream science include a belief in the power of prayer and a disbelief in the Big Bangtheory.”
Visions and sentiments imbued by the American Indian seem manifested on the Skinwalker mesa and synchronized with the dreams of Bob Bigelow: The life of an Indian is like the wings of the air. That is why you notice the hawk knows how to get his prey. The Indian is like that. The hawk swoops down on its prey, so does the Indian. In his lament, he is like an animal. For instance, the coyote is sly, so is the Indian. The eagle is the same. That is why the Indian is always athered up, he is a relative to the wings of the air.
Perhaps Chief Crazy Horse’s lament goes to the heart of the matter: Upon suffering beyond suffering: The Red Nation shall rise again and it shall be a blessing for a sick world; a world filled with broken promises, selfishness, and separations; a world longing for light again. I see a time of Seven Generations when all the colors of mankind will gather under the Sacred Tree of Life and the whole Earth will become one circle again. In that day, there will be those among the Lakota who will carry knowledge and understanding of unity among all living things and the young white ones will come to those of my people and ask for this wisdom. I salute the light within your eyes where the whole Universe dwells. For when you are at that center within you and I am that place within me, we shall be one.

AVOIR PEUR DU NOIR.
The book opened with this stentorian statement: “In the three-year period which followed the murder of President Kennedy and Lee Harvey Oswald, 18 material witnesses died: six by gunfire, three in motor accidents, two by suicide, one from a cut throat, one from a karate chop to the neck, three from heart attacks and two from natural causes. An actuary engaged by the LondonTimes calculated the probability that at least 18 witnesses would die of any cause within 3 years of the JFK assassination as 1 in 100,000 trillion.” (Quoted in the promotion of the 1973 film ExecutiveAction.)
Authors Belzer and Wayne actuallysaidtheodds weremuchhigher: ‘‘The obvious counter-attack to that will be that there weren’t really 15 ‘true’ deaths of witnesses – we have verified that there were actually more than 15…The numbers get even worse, moving forward, because witness deaths increased dramatically at the time of the 1977 Congressional Investigation”; the authors quoted Richard Charnin in “JFK – RelatedDeaths” and “JFKAssassination: AProbabilityAnalysisofUnnaturalWitnessDeaths.”
“In the 14 years following the JFK assassination, there was a minimum of 70 unnatural deaths out of approximately 1,400 witnesses. The probability is 1.40E-33 or 1 in 714,705,498,316,173,300,000,000,000,000,000.”
The authors further quoted Richard Charnin: “That number is greater than all of the stars in the universe and grains of sand on earth. There are an estimated 300 billion trillion (3E23) stars in the universe. That’s three followed by 23 zeroes: 300,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. There are an estimated 700 thousand trillion (7E17) grains of sand on earth or 7 followed by 17 zeroes; 700,000,000,000,000,000.”
In an email to the authors, dated December 4, 2011, Charnin stated emphatically, “I have proved mathematically what many have long suspected: the scores of convenient JFK unnatural witness deaths cannot be coincidental.”
The House Select Committee on Assassinations (1976-1978) may have revealed even further “witnesses”: “Some of the documents are still sealed; scheduled to be released at a future date. It was basically what is known in intelligence parlance as a ‘limited hangout’; they admitted it was a conspiracy but slammed the door on delving deeper into it.”
RISING BODY COUNT
The authors portrayed further suspicious deaths. For example, six high-level FBI officials connected to the investigation of the JFK assassination died during a six-month period in 1977 shortly before testifying before the Congressional Committee. Charnin described such “bizarre series of events” as “mathematically impossible.”
The authors contended that ultimately the deaths should have included additional witnesses to the crime, reporters investigating the case, U.S Intelligence linked to the matter, mafia linked to the crime and/or to the U.S. Intelligence. In that matrix, the authors selected fifty classic deaths in which they presented their case, typical “witness deaths” that ranged from Officer J.D. Tippit to Senator Robert F. Kennedy.
(In-depth analyses invite all of the readers to go beyond this review where the readers can examine the cases up close and at their leisure: The reader will have to review Hit List and its sources to determine the situation for their personal conclusions.)
SOME TYPICAL CASES
The death of police officer J.D. Tippit on November 22, 1963, paraded as the lynch pin to proving the guilt of Lee Harvey Oswald, proved the opposite upon a close examination of the evidence by the authors.
The authors speculated that both Tippet and Oswald were Intelligence operatives. “Lee Harvey Oswald was operational with U.S Military Intelligence.” (Tosh Plumlee, a former pilot for the CIA and a Military Intelligence veteran in under-cover intelligence operations.) Both Oswald and Tippet had somehow operated in support of “broader US intelligence operations.” One of those operations, unbeknownst to Oswald as a target, was that of being “sheep-dipped” as a possible “patsy” in the assassination. According to Oswald’s New Orleans girlfriend, Judyth Vary Baker (Me and Lee: How I Came to Know, Love and Lose Harvey Oswald, Judyth Vary Baker, 2011, Trine Day), Oswald began to trace the assassination plans and told Baker that he would do something to abort it. Until he could have accomplished that, Oswald faithfully followed operative orders, and he believed he was gathering covert intelligence and implementing operative plans. Tippit also was available for any “intervention.” (pp. 20-21)
One: Oswald was seen by his landlady at a bus stop at Tenth and Patton at 1:04 p.m. Tippit was shot a mile away at 1:08 p.m.: that was a ‘mile’ away, and Oswald was waiting for the northbound bus and headed in the oppositedirection.
Two: Eyewitness testimony described a man talking to Tippet that did not fit Oswald’s description. Six witnesses saw not one, but two men involved in the shooting of Officer Tippit. Mrs. Acquilla Clemens described two men; one man was “short and kind of heavy…kind of chunky.” Warren Reynolds and Domingo Benavides were further witnesses.
Three: A jacket discarded by the suspect/murderer at the Tippit crime scene was not Oswald’s jacket, as testified by Marina Oswald.
Four: The Revolver taken from Oswald at the Texas Theater was not the gun used to kill Tippit. Oswald’s revolver had a defective firing pin that completely prevented it from firing a bullet. The bullets in Oswald’s revolver were never conclusively linked to the four bullets in officer Tippit.
Five: James Files, the bodyguard and driver to Chuck Nicoletti, identified Gary Marlow, a highly professional cold-blooded killer, whose mission that day was to murder Oswald to preventhis further involvement: Something obviously went wrong.
Six: A fake wallet deliberately left at the crime scene with the name “Alex Hidell” – Alex Hidell was a “floating alias” that was used by many operatives as an operational covername.
Seven: James Files believed Oswald was on his way to meet his Controller at the Texas Theater (Files said that may have been David Phillips).
View from Lee Bower’s Train Station
Bowers was a Tower Man with the Union Terminal Company and stationed in his 14-foot tower directly behind the Grassy Knoll on the day of the assassination. Bowers observed strange automobiles and persons near the wooden stockade fence.
On August 9, 1966, driven off the road by a black car, Lee Bowers was killed when his car crashed into a concrete abatement in Midlothian, Texas. He told the ambulance people that unknown culprits at a coffee shop had drugged him.
Bowers told his friend, Walter Rischel, that he had specific information that was more cogent, and was afraid to “go public.” He had disappeared for two days. “…one of his fingers was missing on one of his hands, which his brother, Monty, could not trace to any hospital, clinic or doctor’s office.” The mysterious auto accident shortly followed that incident. Bower’s widow confessed: “They told him not to talk.”
Charles Good, a former member of the Texas Highway Patrol, investigated the incident: He concluded that culprits forced Bowers off the road.
MARY PINCHOT MEYER
A killer shot Mary Meyer to death on October 12, 1964.
Mary Meyer, former wife of Cord Meyer, a CIA operative and principal handler of OperationMockingbird, an infiltration of major U.S media. The Meyers were also close friends with James Angleton and his wife. Angleton was head of Counter Intelligence at the CIA.
Meyer filed for divorce in 1958. Following that, she felt under surveillance and unknown culprits invaded her apartment. She blamed James Angleton.
Mary also had a rather serious love affair with President Kennedy; they shared many intimate details (as well as marijuana and LSD; page 145). Legend speculated that Mary learned quite a bit from James Angleton. She was upset about the “absence of authentic information” in the Warren Commission. She felt that it was a “whitewash.”
“Mary left her home on the morning of October 12, 1964, to go out for her morning run. Someone shot her twice at direct range with a .38; the first shot was toward the back of the head and the second shot was to her heart. She died instantly.”
A Raymond Crump was set-up to take the ‘fall.’ It was a smear job. The trial was a sham. The CIA and President Lyndon Johnson (as well as President Kennedy’s “power circles”) were topics that were “never allowed to be spoken of in the courtroom.” Hidden was the fact that “Mary appeared to be killed by a professional hit man.”
Ben and Toni Bradlee confronted James Angleton at Mary’s apartment, all looking for Mary’s diary – a diary that disappeared. A bloodstained sweater also disappeared.
Peter Janney summarized in Mary’s Mosaic (Skyhorse, 2012) that William L. Mitchell (an alias) was a member of the “Army special forces – the order was given to ‘terminate’ her.”
Gary Underhill was a veteran CIA agent. His alleged suicide was on May 8, 1964, but Underhill was right-handed “and it would be extremely awkward – not to mention totally pointless — for a right-handed person to commit suicide by shooting themselves behind the left ear.” (p. 112)
Underhill left no doubt that someone was after him: “This country is too dangerous for me. I’ve got to get on a boat. Oswald is a patsy. They set him up. It’s too much. The bastards have done something outrageous. They’ve killed the President! I’ve been listening and hearing things. I couldn’t believe they’d get away with it, but they did…a real violence group. I know who they are…they know I know.” (Paul Golais, April 8, 2001, The Citizen’s Voice.)
Underhill confided to a friend. The friend said, “Underhill said that he knew the people involved (and that they knew he knew) and he fled Washington for his life…a small clique in the CIA was responsible…” (Gary Richard Schoener, “A Legacy of Fear,” May 2000, Fair Play Magazine).
Depiction of Executive Action-type Ghost Sniper Team
The authors speculated that the highly secret CIA and military Intelligence Unit named Executive Action had turned against Kennedy and killed him. (pp. 113-114)
OSWALD, RUBY, BANISTER
U.S Senator Richard Schweiker, Co-Chairman of a U.S Senate Subcommittee to investigate the JFK assassination in 1975, said in 2007 that Oswald defected to the Soviet Union in 1959 as part of the False Defector Program. Author Joan Mellon confirmed the Top-Secret CIA/ONI False Defector Program. Oswald infiltrated the Fair Play for Cuba Committee and Alpha 66 anti-Castro Cubans, simultaneously joining pro and anti-Castro groups. Oswald strongly denied having shot Kennedy and said he was set-up as a “patsy.” His recorded words subjected to new voice analysis technologies that showed that he was actually telling the truth. Mobster Jack Ruby, who seriously hooked up with just about everybody suspected of playing a major role in the assassination, shot Oswald. (p. 29)
Jack Ruby, the murderer of Lee Harvey Oswald, maintained throughout his incarceration that a product of bio-weapons experimentation at his time would murder Ruby. A well-known MK-Ultra expert was to perform the murder. Ruby died of cancer on January 3, 1967.
Jack Ruby’s Gravesite
Ruby knew the entire key “players” who visited him at his jail: MK-Ultra was the Top Secret CIA program to control an individual’s will, even in the assassination drama, including Chicago mobsters, anti-Castro CIA agents, and the three top mafia bosses. Ruby and Oswald shared connections to the CIA and the mafia as well as also experiences in the Cuban crisis in the USA.
“Ruby was clearly in fear for his life,” said the authors, “both before and after the shooting of Oswald….he was not safe in a Dallas jail. He pleaded with Chief Justice Earl Warren to take him to Washington, D.C…” where he could testify.
Ruby was suspicious of Vice-President Lyndon Johnson and he said he had knowledge of conspirators in high places. He told psychiatrist Werner Teuter that the assassination was “an act of overthrowing the government…I was framed to kill Oswald.” Ruby told the Warren Commission: “…I tell you that a whole new form of government is going to take over the country…”
Jack Ruby Speaks at His Trial
Guy Banister ran a detective agency at 531 Lafayette, New Orleans, Louisiana, and Banister had been involved with far-ranging and under-bellied patina of anti-Communist and Castroist party-liners. Banister’s mistress and employee, Delphine Roberts, said that both Oswald and David Ferrie frequently associated with Banister. Banister’s private investigator, Jack Martin, said that Oswald and Ferrie were part in the Kennedy scenario. Martin told District Attorney Jim Garrison: “The problem is that we’re going to bring the goddamned Federal government down on our backs. Do I need to spell it out? I could get killed – and so could you.”
Culprits ransacked Banister’s office and some files disappeared after his death.
“It has become pretty obvious at this point that Oswald was set-up to ‘take the fall’ for the assassination of President Kennedy,” said the authors, “even though he was set up as a component of the conspiracy to all the players in the drama…the perfect patsy. From that perspective, it all makes perfect sense, and that scenario also explains the National Security cover-up that followed the assassination of JFK.”
Lee Harvey Oswald continually stated his innocence, including “I am just a Patsy”
Gary Revel, assassination researcher, under the banner of Truth IsAll (“Closes the Book on theWarren Commission Apologists”, April 18, 2013) totted praise of the book: “This book is a unique and welcome addition to the massive trove of JFK Assassination literature. There is no conjecture here, just the facts concerning fifty mysterious witness deaths presented in an easy-to-read format. Warren Commission apologists are reduced to irrelevancy; the proof of conspiracy is overwhelming and beyond any doubt. The authors cited my probability analysis in the background information presented in the beginning of the book. The calculations are fully explained in my blog post: http://garyrevel.wordpress.com/.”
Revel summarized the mathematical statistics: 1400 JFK-related witnesses, the probability of at least:
– 15 unnatural deaths within one year of the assassination: 1 in 167 trillion. – 33 unnatural deaths within three years: 1 in 137 trillion, trillion. – 70 unnatural deaths from 1964-77: 1 in 714 million, trillion, trillion. – 40 homicides from 1964-77: 1 in a billion, trillion, trillion, and trillion.
Five hundred and fifty two Warren Commission witnesses: – Exactly 10 homicides in three years: 1 in 31,000 trillion. – Exactly 14 homicides from 1964-1977: 1 in 4,000 trillion.
Posted by Gary Revel on September 19, 2013, at 11:08 a.m.
Revel went on and said about the 34 – 39 deaths mentioned in the book by Belzer and Wayne that six top FBI officials linked to the Kennedy assassination had died in a six-month period prior to their scheduled testimony. Gary Revel was also a Special Investigator commissioned for the official investigation into the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination: Revel said he had continually tried to unravel the bizarre happenings of that year (1977). Revel’s brother, his cousin’s husband, William Sullivan, and five other FBI agents or former FBI officials, who could have been valuable to his investigation, died mysteriously or killed that year. Revel said that the deaths of these FBI Special Agents could have been more significant than realized because all six of these FBI SAS identified to Revel as being ‘important witnesses for the House Select Committee on Assassinations’ (Hit List, p. 206).
(Gary Revel was the creator of Dream Killers, the series co-written with French Screenwriter, Jordan Tate, of Don’t Stop Dancing: the true-life story of Michael Jackson. He was also co-writer [with Frank Burmaster] of the screenplay Polka Red Dot Dress, the thriller/mystery that investigated the assassination of Presidential Candidate Robert F. Kennedy.)
“What bonded the victims together?” asked Samantha Reba (6/20/2013). Reba answered: “The Truth! All of the victims knew the truth and they knew that the people who did it knew. The victims had been able to put two and two together. But before they could go to court and testify, they were silenced forever. All documents from the victims that may have contained the truth or anything evidence have disappeared from this Earth. The JFK assassination is a conspiracy whose truth will never come to light. Those who knew: knew too much.”
Mark Alfred said on July 15, 2013, “If that ‘lone nut’ killed the President and was bumped off by an over-reacting Kennedy family sympathizer (Jack Ruby), why would this cause the switching out of the rifle originally found for the one history now accepts as ‘the murder weapon’? Why is there evidence of somebody pretending to be Oswald running around Dallas at gun ranges and taking test-drives (Oswald could not drive)? Why was evidence messed up and switched?
“If it was only a crazy guy with a rifle how could that ‘truth’ have caused the government’s own photographs of the autopsy to NOT MATCH UP with the government’s own x-rays supposedly taken at the same time, of the same head with the same wounds?
“This is a valuable book, and it’s put together well. It synthesizes years and generations of findings to make the point that things should not have happened the way they did, and certainly not with help from some bad men. The fact that some of these bad men tried to justify their murders by justifying them with spy babble or face-saving rhetoric only makes their personal foulness and depravity stink even more. People who had not been given the right — they decided to change the government of our country. How dare them! Amos 5:24: ‘But let judgment run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream.’”
“I’ve found you don’t have to make anything up,” Belzer said. “Reality is so complex and fascinating and horrible and beautiful. I’ve been studying this case my whole adult life, and I’m still finding stuff about the case because, over time, things come out…People say you can’t keep a secret. Well, you can. But after 50 years, the secret starts coming out.”
As for why they killed Kennedy, Belzer said it was primarily due to Kennedy’s interest in pulling America out of Vietnam, which caused threats to the Elite with those looking to profit off America’s venture abroad. Belzer explained why the cover-up occurred, Belzer said: “I believe a lot of people, for noble, patriotic reasons, covered up the real story because we didn’t want the world to think we’re a ‘banana republic.’”
“We’re at the height of the Cold War, and the president’s head is exploded in broad daylight, so they had to get this patsy who was clearly set up. That’s common knowledge that Oswald was a fake defector and was a patsy…Ninety percent of the American people believe there was a conspiracy involved in the assassination of the president. The other 10 percent work for the media or the government, probably. The public knows. Most people believe Lee Harvey Oswald did not act alone at the very least.”
Belzer’s fascination with the story was because “the Kennedy assassination is one of the ghostliest parts of our history.”
Award-winning photojournalist, Gene Barnes shared his life and times as a camera operator for NBCNews during the radical 1950’s and 1960’s. His stories were in-depth and thought-provoking actions and comments that we still talk about to this day. He was in Dallas on that day that killers shot Kennedy. Early news came over the wires. Multiple questions gripped the minds of the reporters: Who was Oswald? Had Oswald connections to the mob? Eventually, answers seemed to come slowly and laboriously: Oswald seemed to have been a CIA operative who had fronted as a communist, worked out of New Orleans, establishing his connections; but why would he want to kill Kennedy? Others speculated that Castro was involved. Speculation had built up.
Newsman Gene Barnes
Barnes followed leads as swiftly as they developed. Barnes was thankful that many of the leads were unsuccessful, for if successful, he said, they would have drawn them deeper into the web of danger. One incident was when Robin MacNeil and Barnes went to Jack Ruby’s apartment to photograph and see what we could uncover. He said he recalled Ruby’s sister as being at the apartment and she yelled obscenities at them through the open apartment door. She ordered them to leave. Barnes said he later felt protected that they did not stay: people associated with Ruby or his apartment seemingly died in assorted fashions. Network Chief Bill McAndrew warned them that their investigative reporting endangered them and ultimately would lead to their demise.
At the time, NBC was the only news agency that seemed to mention David Ferrie’s name. Ferrie’s background revealed that he was a flagrant homosexual (with heavy dark painted eyebrows), and was an airplane pilot. A daisy chain of information concerning Ferrie soon developed; some from the news desk, some from fellow cinematographers, and some from neighborhood gossip, but it all eventually untangled in scarce, spooky, mystic fashion. There was talk about the possibility that Ferrie was allegedly involved with a plan to fly two or three men out of Dallas right after the assassination from a secret site. Later, Barnes heard that Ferrie turned out to be the pilot who flew Mafia boss Carlos Marcello back to New Orleans from Puerto Rico. Robert Kennedy had Federal agents dump Marcello in Puerto Rico because Marcello kept insisting he was Puerto Rican, not Sicilian.
One of the Clay Shaw’s Parties
New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison launched a conspiracy trial involving Clay Shaw whose secret lifestyle involved macabre people sporting leather, whips and chains, and bizarre homosexual paraphernalia. Ferrie was to be his first witness: Investigators found David Ferrie dead in his apartment the day before. The headlines concerning Ferrie’s death did not surprise Barnes; Barnes speculated that it seemed that anyone connected to the Kennedy assassination in almost any fashion contributed to the growing dead-body-count.

INTO THE ABYSS OF DARK THINKING
Robert Reckmeyer, Consultation Services, as a reformed criminal of marijuana sales, had long ago paid his debt to society and reemerged as a solid citizen now dedicated to combating High Priority Criminals. His hard-earned-life-experiences have allowed him to gain penetrating insight into the criminal mind. He applied that insight into the JFK assassination:
“Many can speculate on who was responsible for the planning and execution of our young President on that fateful day in Dallas Texas. In my view, since that November day, one can see quite clearly, that those with a Nazi philosophy have been ascending and the liberal democrats have been in decline. The Nazi goal to take over the world has not been diminished, and, in truth, the New World Order is upon us.
“We know what we know and we know what we don’t know…we know that John F. Kennedy was gunned down, by more than one shooter and the lone gunman theory is the least plausible theory of all, in fact, it is impossible. We know there were more shots fired than one person could possibly get off, in the few seconds available, and the kill shot came from the front. We know, without a doubt, that it involved a well-planned, well-financed conspiracy and they had help from the highest levels of our government, i.e. Gerald Ford, Allen Dulles, Richard Nixon, George H.W. Bush, Lyndon Johnson, and many others who have gone on and played a pivotal role in our current American history.”
“The Zapruder film haunts our consciousness,” said Joseph McBride, a film historian (and the author of Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy andOfficer J.D. Tippit). “The maze-like element of the assassination can become a wilderness of mirrors. When you begin to understand something, it opens up a whole different way of looking at it. It can become dizzying.”
Phil Butler is editor-in-chief of Everything PR and senior partner at Pamil Visions PR: his summation sentiments the thoughts of millions:
“I’ve always known JFK was the victim of a conspiracy. Even as a kid I never believed a lone gunman, the weaselly looking Oswald, capable of downing the most powerful man on Earth. Nobody really believed such, let me tell you. Seeing the chaos that ensued, remembering the tall figure of a leader coming to us through our radios and TVs, telling us to ‘ask not,’ living in the promised land of shiny Cadillac’s and miraculous devices, with a whole planet blossoming into a potential Utopia, there was just no way. We smelled something really, really wrong, nobody needed CBS’s Walter Cronkite to reveal the ‘the’ killers, his early reporting of the events, they were noise in the background of a word of mouth utterance by a whole society. It’s one still faintly heard. ‘Who killed the Kennedys? After all it was me and you,’ as the Rolling Stones song goes.”
The authors quoted the late District Attorney Jim Garrison that our society had evolved into a proto-fascist state, emerged from prosperity: “It’s based on power and inability to put human goals and human conscience above the dictates of the state.” Garrison spoke of Eisenhower’s “Military-Industrial-Complex…which now dominates every aspect of our life…what happens to the individual who dissents? In Nazi Germany, he was physically destroyed; here, the process is more subtle, but the end results can be the same.”
