UFO Sightings, Encounters, Abductions, Majestic12, Alien Human Hybrids, FOI Documents & More!
We once believed the Earth was flat. Knowledge evolved to enlighten our minds to the truth. Since the advent of space telescopes, the hubble telescope etc., we relized how vast our universe really is. The infamous Roswell crash launched a new path scientists, government and the general population began to travel. UFO sightings and experiences go back far further than the 1940’s incident of course. From sightings worldwide to very real abduction accounts, implants etc., this page is a focus point to enlighten you to the very real reality of Alien life and the effects it has and will have on our daily lives. UFO Reality is not a page with clever hoaxes or misinformation…UFO Reality is about very real experiences, abductions and more. There is most certainly something going on in our world these days, and I personally do NOT believe that what is going on, is meant to benefit or further our civilization! Notable authors like Jim Marrs explores that very idea in his his book, Alien Agenda: Investigating the Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us
. Forget about cuddly & cute aliens like E.T., after reading Jim Marrs’s book, you’ll definitely think otherwise! Although I do not also believe that every Alien life form is out to get us, so to speak, I do believe our society is being conditioned for nefarious reasons that we will not find out about until it’s simply to late!
Your experiences are wanted! Please use the report form found to the right in the pages section to share what has happened to you or people you know (with their permission of course), and your UFO accounts will be posted on this page. With sightings on the rise worldwide, there is something taking place that the world governments are trying to cover-up and push out so much dis-info about these events. There are so many theories and stories about supposed alien invasions, personal accounts, alien linked hollow earth stories and so on. New articles and information will be posted twice a week (more or less depending on time limits). Your personal information you send in related to UFO’s WILL be kept confidential! Security and confidentiality are priorities at The Paranormal Effect!

Gray Highway: An American UFO Journey – Lots of books promise to tell the truth about UFOs. To finally reveal whether or not humans are being tagged and studied like elk, if aliens are preparing for a final invasion, or if the government is lying to us to pursue a secret research agenda. This is not one of those books. In this book, two guys drive across the country to visit famous UFO sites and meet the people involved in historic events and present-day commercialism. For whatever the real explanation may be, it’s easy to forget that the UFO phenomenon is a distinctly human one. For every sighting there is a witness, and for every abduction a victim or willing participant. And then there are the UFOlogists, the psychologists, psychiatrists, and hypnotists, the entrepreneurs, the reporters, the cranks, and the crazies. Mix well, salt to taste, and scatter across America. Mark where they land, see where they live, and draw a route to connect them all together. Then drive. This is the Gray Highway.

Magnolia, New Jersey – 05-21-11– Bright Sphere Seen for 10 Minutes over Magnolia, New Jersey.
Upon coming home I always like to look into the sky to see the stars. That night, I saw an object that was flashing intensely and moving in a zig-zag sort of direction.
We are close to an airport, the PHL of Philadelphia International.
So, as always, I was skeptical.
I waited and watched the object and it was not flying like normal air traffic.
The flashing was not the normal colors, but bright and various red, oranges and a white. It was stationary for a few minutes, like hovering in midair.
The object zigged and zagged several times, then flew straight up, then down, and did a final 90 degree turn before shooting straight up into the night sky and vanishing.
I do not own a digital camera that would be of quality for pictures to be submitted at this time.
New York – 05-28-11 – City of Buffalo – Sighting lasted four minutes, lighted, silent craft seen.
Unknown, Silent, Lighted Craft Hovers over Buffalo, New York
A craft of unknown shape and size, at an altitude of 4,000 to 5,000 ft. approached from the east, making no noise, and emitting an intense red glow, with yellowish back-lighting.
The craft initially maintained a straight forward motion and consistent speed (although it was much slower than a jet plane).
As the craft approached the apex of the sky above me, slightly to my north, it slowed even further, it came to a complete stop, and hovered in that position for about a half minute.
Then it appeared to lift straight upward at a high rate of speed, still silent, as it lifted away, the lights became smaller and dimmer, until it was no longer visible.
The sky conditions where partly cloudy, and I did see jet plane traffic overhead at their normal 30+ thousand feet.
New Jersey – 05-29-11 – City of Port Republic – My boyfriend and I were driving. He spotted the object first and I saw it just about a second later.
It was quite high up in the atmosphere. It was glowing bright red and very brightly.
There were no flashing lights, it was just glowing.
I immediately hit the brakes on my car to get a better look and possibly a picture, but as soon as I did, it stopped glowing and just became a red dot in the sky.
Then, it seemed to take off faster and disappear behind the tree line.
I drove up to a clearing in the road as quickly as I could, but the object was gone.
New York – 05-31-11 – City Unknown – I was standing on my balcony looking up at the sky, and straight up above my head I saw a star formation Alphekka, and then it looked like a star broke free.
I first thought it was just a blur, or a plane, but then it flew in a pattern unfamiliar to planes, it was erratic in nature, it paused, and then continued to move north through Hercules, toward Vega and disappeared.
It didn’t gain intensity, it stayed a faint brightness, but remained visible for almost 2 minutes, and then it disappeared.
I felt like this was my first actual sighting, and that I wanted to share with a community.
Afterwards it took me an hour to gather my thoughts, and decide that I had to tell someone about it.
I went back out to look and I didn’t see anything like what I saw before.
Majestic 12 – All the news that’s needed to be known!
One of the biggest problems surrounding the famous Roswell event of July 1947 is the almost complete lack of documentation to support the claims that anything (UFO, balloon, V2 rocket, or something else) crashed or landed in the wilds of New Mexico on that long-gone day. In 1987, however, the situation changed drastically. It was in that year that UFO investigator Timothy Good’s best-selling book, Above Top Secret, was published; one of the most controversial aspects of which was the discussion of a document that allegedly originated with a classified research and development group established by the U.S. Government in 1947 to deal with the incident at Roswell and known variously as Majestic 12 or MJ12.
Classified “Top Secret/Majic Eyes Only,” the document can essentially be broken down into two parts: the first is a 1952 briefing prepared by Admiral Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter (the first Director of the CIA) for President-elect Eisenhower, informing him that an alien spacecraft was recovered at Roswell and briefing him on the MJ12 group, its activities and membership (which supposedly included Rear Admiral Sidney Souers, the first Director of Central Intelligence; Doctor Vannevar Bush, the head of the Joint Research and Development Board; and General Nathan Twining, Commanding General of Air Materiel Command). The second is a 1947 memorandum from President Harry Truman to Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, authorizing the establishment of MJ12.
Shortly after Timothy Good published copies of the MJ12 documents in May 1987, additional copies surfaced, this time in the States, having been released by the research team of William Moore, Stanton Friedman and television producer, Jaime Shandera. Moore had been working quietly with a number of intelligence insiders who had contacted him in the wake of the publication of the 1980 book he co-authored with Charles Berlitz, The Roswell Incident, and from time to time and under distinctly cloak-and-dagger circumstances, official-looking papers would be passed on to Moore by his Deep Throat-like sources; the implication being that someone in the Government wished to make available to the UFO research community material – including pro-UFO data on Roswell – that would otherwise have remained for ever outside of the public domain.
Needless to say, controversy raged with regard to the nature of the documents and the circumstances under which they surfaced. Some favored the idea that they were official documents, secretly leaked by insider sources connected to the intelligence community. Others, however, cried “Hoax!” While some suspected that the documentation was possibly government-orchestrated disinformation designed to muddy the already dark waters of Roswell even further. In the near-quarter of a century that has now passed since the documents surfaced, the MJ12 saga continues to flourish.
Although he is loath to go into too much detail lest it “identifies players that I don’t want identifying,” Al Barker – a former key player in the Intelligence world of the 1950s and early 1960s – claims to know the origin of the term “Majestic 12” as it appears in the controversial documents made available by William Moore and Jaime Shandera in the 1980s.
According to Barker, the MJ12 documents are nothing but hoaxes designed to steer people away from what he believes is the truth behind Roswell: namely, a dark and dubious military experiment in which human guinea-pigs were used. In other words, Barker sees Roswell as having nothing to do with aliens, and everything to do with a classified aircraft program of a very terrestrial – rather than extraterrestrial – nature.
The term “Majestic,” says Barker, was in reality an “inside joke with the Intel boys” that was inspired by a newspaper account from 1947 that hit the headlines and that, interestingly, referenced crashed UFOs, and even incorporated the word “Majestic” in the account.
As evidence of this, Barker supplied a copy of the following newspaper report from the 14 July 1947 edition of the Yonkers, New York Herald Statesman newspaper. Titled Gadget Found Stuck in Hedge Is Taken To Police Who Believe It Is Work of Practical Prankster, it reads: “Eastchester came up with its own version of a flying disc on Saturday night, but whether the gadget flew into town under its own power or was placed here by a practical prankster was still being investigated today by Eastchester Police. On his evening constitutional on Saturday, Lawrence Castellucci of 69 Homestead Avenue, noticed a shiny metal object stuck in the hedge bordering his front lawn. This ‘what’s it’ has since been described by various persons as (1) ‘a cookie can cover,’ (2) a ‘pie plate’ (3) a ‘cracker tin cover.’
“Equipped With Tube: Flying or otherwise, the disc carries on its surface a clutter of mechanical contrivances including a radio tube, a transformer, a condenser and another gadget, which police describe as a ‘radio speaker unit.’ If that adds up to a flying machine, Eastchester may have a flying disc. The disc is about ten inches in diameter and is surrounded by a rim about one inch high. The condenser and the transformer have Japanese markings and are unquestionably of Japanese origin. The radio tube is a ‘Majestic G-38.’ The joker on the contraption is a white label with red trimming on top of the disc. It bears the admonition in English, ‘Finder, please return to Tokyo Rose, Japan.’”
It ultimately transpired that this entire affair was nothing more than a prank. According to Barker, however, it was never forgotten: nearly forty years later and “with a kind of cruel humor in mind,” the term “Majestic” was lifted from the story and employed in the documents that surfaced from Moore and Good, as an in-house “cruel, spook joke.”
The final word on Majestic 12 I will leave to Barker: “Intel had one goal and it worked perfectly: the plan was to give the space alien writers something to believe in and use to support their theories and to give their opponents something to fight against. So, while both are fighting [for] years and spending money researching over if these are real [Majestic 12] files, no-one is looking where they should be looking: the human experiments. A wonderful plan that still works today.”
Majestic 12 (also known as Majic 12, Majestic Trust, M12, MJ 12, MJ XII, Majority 12 or Mars-Jupiter 12) is the alleged code name of a secret committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials, supposedly formed in 1947 by an executive order of U.S. President Harry S Truman. The alleged purpose of the committee was to investigate UFO activity in the aftermath of the Roswell incident—the supposed crash of the alien spaceship near Roswell, New Mexico, in July 1947. The Majestic 12 is an important part of the UFO conspiracy theory of an ongoing government cover up of UFO information. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has declared that the documents associated with the Majestic 12 committee are “completely bogus”.
The FBI investigated the documents, and concluded they were forgeries, based primarily on an opinion rendered by the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI). Errors in formatting and chronology have also divided UFO researchers over their authenticity.
In 1985, another document mentioning MJ-12 and dating to 1954 was found in a search at the National Archives. Its authenticity is also highly controversial. The documents in question are rather widely available on the Internet, for example on the FBI website, where it is concluded they are fraudulent (linked below).
Since the first MJ-12 documents, thousands of pages of other supposedly leaked government documents mentioning MJ-12 and a government coverup of UFO reality have also appeared, sometimes collectively referred to as the “Majestic Documents.”[self-published source?] All of them are controversial, with many disputing their authenticity. A few have been proven to be unquestionably fraudulent, usually retyped rewrites of unrelated government documents. The primary new MJ-12 document is a lengthy, Linotype-set manual allegedly dating from 1954, called the MJ-12 “Special Operations Manual (SOM)”. It deals primarily with the handling of crash debris and alien bodies. Objections to its authenticity usually center on questions of style and some historical anachronisms.
The documents date from 1942 to 1997 and have been hotly debated in the UFO community. The documents include such matters as the conduct to be used when meeting an alien, diagrams and records of tests on UFOs, memos on measures to prevent leakage of information, and descriptions of the President’s statements about UFO-related issues. The documents contain supposed signatures of important people such as Albert Einstein and Ronald Reagan, creating a major debate in the conspiracy and UFO communities. No more documents have been leaked or released since 1997. Their authenticity remains uncertain, and some claim them to be entirely fake.
However, before the appearance of the various dubious MJ-12 documents, Canadian documents dating from 1950 and 1951 were uncovered in 1978.[self-published source?] These documents mention the existence of a similar, highly classified UFO study group operating within the Pentagon‘s Research & Development Board (RDB) and headed by Dr. Vannevar Bush. Although the name of the group is not given, proponents argue that these documents remain the most compelling evidence that such a group did exist. There is also some testimony (see Arguments for below) from a few government scientists involved with this project confirming its existence.
Other theories of the MJ-12 group
MJ-12 is sometimes associated in recent UFO conspiracy literature with the more historically verifiable but also deeply secretive NSC 5412/2 Special Group, created by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954. Although the Special Group was not specifically concerned with UFOs, and post-dates the alleged creation of MJ-12 in 1947, the commonality of the number ’12’ in the names of the two groups is cited as intriguing, as is the first chairman, Gordon Gray, being one of the alleged MJ-12 members. As the highest body of central intelligence experts in the early Cold War era (according to the documents, the group included the President but not the Vice President), the Special Group certainly would have had both clearance and interest in all matters of national security, including UFO sightings if they were considered a real threat[original research?].
Another government group recently associated with MJ-12 was the CIA’s Office of National Estimates or ONE, a forerunner of the current National Intelligence Council (NIC). ONE was created in 1950 by CIA Director Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, alleged to have replaced Secretary of Defense James Forrestal on MJ-12 after his death. A history of the NIC states that ONE was a type of super branch of the CIA “whose sole task was to produce coordinated ‘National Intelligence Estimates.'” Besides Smith, it apparently consisted of 11 other members. A recent article on the history of the CIA’s involvement in UFO investigations states that ONE received a UFO intelligence briefing on January 30, 1953, immediately after the end of the CIA’s UFO debunking study known as the Robertson Panel. Members of ONE at that time included FBI director J. Edgar Hoover, William Bundy, President Eisenhower’s chief of staff Admiral B. Bieri, and William Langer, a Harvard historian, who was chairman. Referring to ONE as “super think tank” within the CIA, the article states, “ONE is as close as we get to a documented version of the rumoured Majestic-12 group.”
Connection to the secret Pratt documents
At the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) 2007 Symposium in Denver, Colorado, UFO researcher Brad Sparks presented a paper that describes the MJ12 documents as an elaborate disinformation campaign perpetrated by William Moore, Richard C. Doty, and other Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) personnel. The sources for this information are files dating from 1981 (3 years before the first alleged MJ12 documents surfaced) that UFO researcher Bob Pratt gave MUFON before his death in 2005. The information lay hidden in MUFON’s archives until they were digitized as part of MUFON’s Pandora Project and made available to UFO researchers. The paper can be downloaded from the MUFON website.[self-published source?][self-published source?] Of interest will be the paragraph that has a handwritten date of 1/02/82 and states: “3. UFO project is Aquarius, classified Top Secret with access restricted to MJ 12. (MJ may be “magic”). This project begun about 1966, but apparently inherited files of earlier project.”
All the alleged original members of MJ-12 were notable for their military, government, and/or scientific achievements, and all were deceased when the documents first surfaced (the last to die was Jerome Hunsaker, only a few months before the MJ-12 papers first appeared).
The original composition was six civilians (mostly scientists), and six high-ranking military officers, two from each major military service. Three (Souers, Vandenberg, and Hillenkoetter) had been the first three heads of central intelligence. The Moore/Shandera documents did not make clear who was the director of MJ-12, or if there was any organizational hierarchy.
The named members of MJ-12 were:
- Rear Adm. Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter: first CIA director
- Dr. Vannevar Bush: chaired wartime Office of Scientific Research and Development and predecessor National Defense Research Committee; set up and chaired postwar Joint Research and Development Board (JRDB) and then the Research and Development Board (RDB); chaired NACA; President of Carnegie Institute, Washington D.C.
- James Forrestal: Secretary of the Navy; first Secretary of Defense (replaced after his death on MJ-12 by Gen. Walter Bedell Smith, 2nd CIA director)

According to other sources and MJ-12 papers to emerge later,[self-published source?] famous scientists like Robert Oppenheimer, Albert Einstein, Karl Compton, Edward Teller, John von Neumann, and Wernher von Braun were also allegedly involved with MJ-12.(see also Arguments for below, particularly statements by Dr. Robert Sarbacher)
Reliably-documented UFO activities by purported MJ-12 members
Many of these men had reliably documented activities related to UFOs:
- Vandenberg, as Director of Central Intelligence in 1946, had overseen investigations into the so-called Ghost rockets in Europe and wrote intelligence memos about the phenomena. Later as Air Force Chief of Staff, both Vandenberg and Twining oversaw early U.S. Air Force UFO investigations, like Project Sign and Project Blue Book and made some public statements on UFOs.
- Twining had previously written a famous Secret memo on September 23, 1947 (the day before Truman allegedly set up MJ-12) stating that flying saucers were real and urged formal investigation by multiple government organizations such as the AEC, NACA, NEPA, Bush’s JRDB, and the Air Force Scientific Advisory Board. This led directly to the creation of Project Sign in late 1947.
- Vandenberg met with Bush’s JRDB in a suddenly-called meeting on the morning of the Roswell UFO incident (July 8, 1947) and was reported in the press as handling the later public relations crises.
- Bush was directly implicated in 1950-51 Canadian documents heading a highly secret UFO investigation within the Research and Development Board (RDB); this assertion was confirmed by Canadian scientist Wilbert B. Smith Immediately after the Roswell UFO incident, Bush made public statements denying any knowledge of UFOs or any relation they might have to secret government projects.
- Berkner was on the 1953 CIA-organized Robertson Panel debunking UFOs and helped establish Project Ozma, the first radio telescope search for extraterrestrial intelligence.
- Menzel filed a UFO report in 1949, later wrote several UFO debunking books, and was the most prominent public UFO debunker of his time. Many conspiracy theorists see this as a “cover-up” for alleged MJ12 – alien connections.
- Hillenkoetter was on the board of directors of the powerful civilian UFO organization NICAP and made public statements to Congress about UFO reality in 1960.
- The National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), which Hunsaker chaired from 1941–1958, is also known from documents to have occasionally delved into UFO cases. Other members of NACA were Bush (1938–1948), Compton (1948–1949), Vandenberg (1948–1953), Twining (1953–1957), and Bronk (1948–1958).
- Teller was a member of a scientific panel in 1949 at Los Alamos National Laboratory looking into the UFO phenomenon known as the green fireballs
Professional and social connections among purported MJ-12 members
Research has also shown that there were many social and professional connections among many of the alleged members of MJ-12. For example, Bush, Hunsaker, Bronk, and Berkner all sat on the oversight committee of the Research and Development Board (RDB), which Bush had established and initially chaired. Other notables on the RDB oversight committee were Karl Compton, Robert Oppenheimer, and Dr. H. P. Robertson, who headed up the debunking Robertson Panel, of which Berkner was a member. As mentioned, 1950 Canadian documents indicated that Bush headed up a small, highly secret UFO study group within the RDB. (See also Arguments for below)
Various alleged MJ-12 members or participants would also naturally be part of the Presidential office’s National Security Council, created in 1947. This would include (depending on NSC composition, which evolved) various NSC permanent members: Executive Secretary (Souers, Cutler), the Secretary of Defense (Forrestal), the Secretary of the Army (Gray), National Security Advisor (Gray), and the Air Force Chief of Staff (Vandenberg, Twining). Other nonpermanent members who would attend NSC meetings as advisors and implement policy would be the CIA director (Hillenkoetter, Smith), the head of the Research and Development Board (Bush, Compton), the President’s Special Assistant for National Security Affairs (Cutler, Gray), and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs (Twining).
Therefore the supposed members and participating personnel of MJ-12 would have served on many other high government agencies and could conceivably have influenced government policy at many levels. (See also list of supposed current MJ-12 members below, again indicating various individuals who have served in high government positions.)
The purported members were trusted, high-ranking officials who were often involved in important government projects—they possessed diverse skills and high security clearances. However, they were not so recognizable that they would be missed if they were to be called upon in a secret emergency. If such a group existed, these individuals would make plausible members.
Timeline of MJ-12 claims and documents
Arthur Bray’s discovery (1978)
In 1978, Canadian researcher Arthur Bray uncovered previously-classified Canadian UFO documents naming Dr. Vannevar Bush as heading a highly secret UFO investigation group within the U.S. Research and Development Board. No name for the group was given. Bray published excerpts of the documents in his 1979 book, The UFO Connection.
Aquarius document and Paul Bennewitz connection (1980)
The earliest citation of the term “MJ Twelve” originally surfaced in a purported U.S. Air Force teletype dated November 17, 1980. This so-called “Project Aquarius” teletype had been given to Albuquerque physicist and businessman Paul Bennewitz in November, 1980, by U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations counterintelligence officer Richard C. Doty as part of a disinformation campaign to discredit Bennewitz. Bennewitz had photographed and recorded electronic data of what he believed to be UFO activity over and nearby Kirtland AFB, a sensitive nuclear facility. Bennewitz reported his findings to officials at Kirtland, including Doty. Later it was discovered the Aquarius document was phony and had been prepared by Doty.
One sentence in the lengthy teletype read:
The official US Government policy and results of Project Aquarius is [sic] still classified TOP SECRET with no dissemination outside channels and with access restricted to “MJ TWELVE.”
As Greg Bishop writes, “Here, near the bottom of this wordy message in late 1980, was the very first time anyone had seen a reference to the idea of a suspected government group called ‘MJ Twelve’ that controlled UFO information. Of course, no one suspected at the time the colossal role that this idea would play in 1980s and ’90s UFOlogy, and it eventually spread beyond its confines to become a cultural mainstay.”
As Bennewitz was the subject of a disinformation campaign, many investigators are automatically suspicious of any documents or claims made in association with the Bennewitz affair. Because the entire MJ-12 affair made its appearance only a year after Bray had made public the incriminating Canadian documents about the secret UFO committee, one theory is that the Project Aquarius teletype was part of a counterintelligence hoax to discredit the information in the just-revealed Canadian documents. Thus the various MJ-12 documents could be fake, but the secret committee described in the verified Canadian documents could still have been real. (See Arguments for below)
The Moore/Shandera documents (1984)
What came to be known as the “MJ-12 papers” – detailing a secret UFO committee allegedly involving Vannevar Bush – first appeared on a roll of film in late 1984 in the mailbox of television documentary producer (and amateur ufologist) Jaime Shandera. Shandera had been collaborating with Roswell researcher William Moore since 1982.
Just prior to Bennewitz and the Aquarius document, Moore had been contacted in September 1980 by Doty, who described himself as representing a shadowy group of 10 military intelligence insiders who claimed to be opposed to UFO secrecy. Moore called them “The Aviary”.
In January 1981, Doty provided Moore with a copy of the phony Aquarius document with mention of MJ Twelve. Moore would later claim in 1989 that he began collaborating with AFOSI in spying on fellow researchers such as Bennewitz, and dispensing disinformation, ostensibly to gain the trust of the military officers, but reality to learn whatever UFO truth they might have, and also to learn how the military manipulated UFO researchers. In return, Doty and others were to leak information to him.
Later it would turn out that some of the UFO documents given Moore were forged by Doty and compatriots, or were retyped and altered from the originals. Furthermore, the film mailed Shandera with the MJ-12 documents was postmarked “Albuquerque,” raising the obvious suspicion that the MJ-12 documents were more bogus documents arising from Doty and AFOSI in Albuquerque.
In 1983, Doty also targeted UFO researcher and journalist Linda Moulton Howe, revealing alleged high-level UFO documents, including those describing crashed alien flying saucers and recovery of aliens. Doty again mentioned MJ-12, explaining that “MJ” stood for “Majority” (not “Majestic”)
Moore soon showed a copy of the Aquarius/MJ 12 teletype given him by Doty to researchers Brad Sparks and Kal Korff. In 1983, Moore also sought Sparks’ reaction to a plan to create counterfeit government UFO documents, hoping to induce former military officers to speak out. Sparks strongly urged Moore not do this. The previous year Moore had similarly approached nuclear physicist and UFO researcher Stanton T. Friedman about creating bogus Roswell documents, again with the idea of encouraging witnesses to come forward. Also, in early 1982, Moore had approached former National Enquirer reporter Bob Pratt (who had first published a story on Roswell in the Enquirer in 1980). Moore asked Pratt to collaborate on a novel called MAJIK-12. As a result, Pratt always believed that the Majestic-12 papers were a hoax, either perpetrated personally by Moore or perhaps by AFOSI, with Doty using Moore as a willing target. Moore, however, flatly denied creating the documents, but eventually thought that maybe he had been set up. Noted UFO skeptic Philip J. Klass would also argue that Moore was the most likely hoaxer of the initial batch of MJ-12 documents.
Unlike Pratt, who was convinced they were a hoax, Friedman would investigate the historical and technical details in the MJ-12 documents and become their staunchest defender.
The 1984/1985 MJ-12 Papers
The Eisenhower briefing document
The film allegedly received by Shandera in 1984 consisted of two MJ-12 documents. The main document, dated November 18, 1952, was supposedly prepared by Rear Admiral Roscoe Hillenkoetter, the first CIA director, to brief incoming president Dwight Eisenhower on the committee’s progress. The document lists all the MJ-12 members and discusses United States Air Force investigations and concealment of a crashed alien spacecraft near Roswell, New Mexico, plus another crash in northern Mexico in December 1950.
Eisenhower did indeed receive extensive briefings November 18, 1952, including a briefing at the Pentagon by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, which would have included alleged MJ-12 members Twining and Vandenberg. However, Eisenhower’s Pentagon briefing is still classified and thus the subject matter discussed remains speculative.
The Cutler/Twining memo (1985)
In 1985, Shandera and Moore began receiving post cards postmarked “New Zealand” with a return address of “Box 189, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.” The cards contained a series of cryptic messages referring to “Reeses [sic] Pieces” and “Suitland” (among other terms) that Shandera and Moore assumed were a code; however, they were unable to “decode” the seeming message.
A few months later, a happenstance request from Friedman unlocked the mystery: busy due to previous obligations, Friedman asked Moore and Shandera to examine newly declassified Air Force documents at the National Archives (NARA) repository in Suitland, Maryland; the head archivist there was named Ed Reese.
After a few days in Suitland, Shandera and Moore discovered yet another MJ-12 document, the so-called Cutler/Twining memo, dated July 14, 1954. Interestingly enough, the memo turned up in “Box 189” of the record group. In this memo, NSC Executive Secretary and Eisenhower’s National Security Advisor Robert Cutler informed Air Force Chief of Staff (and alleged MJ-12 member) Nathan Twining of a change of plans in a scheduled MJ-12 briefing.
The Cutler-Twining memo lacked a distinctive catalog number, leading many to suspect that whether hoaxed or genuine, the memo was almost certainly planted in the archives.
Moore and Shandera have been accused of hoaxing the memo and then planting it in the archives. However, Friedman notes that the memo, unlike the other early MJ-12 papers which were available only as photos, is on original onionskin paper widely used by the government at that time (1953 – early 70’s) and unavailable in stationary stores. The document also has some subtle historical and other details that a civilian hoaxer would be unlikely to know, such as a red pencil declassification marking also found with the other declassified files. Furthermore, NARA security procedures would make it difficult for a visitor to the Archives to plant such a document; even the skeptical Klass argued that NARA security procedures made it highly unlikely that Shandera and Moore could have planted the Cutler-Twining memo in the archives. Instead, Friedman has argued that one of the many Air Force personnel involved in declassifying NARA documents could easily have planted the Cutler/Twining memo in with other unrelated documents.
However, most researchers have argued that various subtle details point to a forgery (see #Arguments against for some). For example, the date of the alleged MJ-12 meeting does not correspond to any known meeting of import. However, this doesn’t negate Friedman’s point that the memo could have been planted by someone in the Air Force.
The FBI investigation (1988)
The MJ-12 documents were first made public in 1987 by Shandera, Moore, and Friedman. Another copy of the same documents Shandera received in 1984 was mailed to British researcher Timothy Good in 1987, again from an anonymous source. Good first reproduced them in his book Above Top Secret (1988), but later judged the documents as likely fraudulent.
After the documents became widely known with the publication of Good’s book, the Federal Bureau of Investigation then began its own investigation, urged on by debunker Philip J. Klass. The MJ-12 documents were supposedly classified as “Top Secret“, and the FBI’s initial concern was that someone within the U.S. government had illegally leaked highly classified information.
The FBI quickly formed doubts as to the documents’ authenticity. FBI personnel contacted the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (counterintelligence), asking if MJ-12 had ever existed. AFOSI claimed that no such committee had ever been authorized or formed, and that the documents were “bogus.” The FBI adopted the AFOSI opinion and declared the MJ-12 documents to be “completely bogus.”
However, when Stanton Friedman contacted the AFOSI officer, Col. Richard Weaver, who had rendered this opinion, Friedman said Weaver refused to document his assertion. Friedman also noted that Weaver had taught disinformation and propaganda courses for AFOSI and was principal author of the Air Force’s debunking Roswell report in 1994. (Friedman, 110-115)
Timothy Good in Beyond Top Secret also noted that Weaver in 1994 was the Director of Security and Special Programs Oversight of AFOSI’s Pentagon office, a very high level organization within the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force. Good commented that AFOSI is “an agency whose work involves counterintelligence and deception, and which has a long record of deep involvement in the UFO problem.” Within Weaver’s office were “special planners.” According to Good, “In Air Force parlance, the term ‘special plans’ is a euphemism for deception as well as for ‘perception management’ plans and operations.” Conducting an interview with one Roswell witness, Weaver himself admitted, “We’re the people who keep the secrets.” It is difficult to tell from interviews such as these, as the cold war tactics of deceptions within deceptions are intentionally vague as to where the disinformation and coverup of espionage ends and the government’s actual investigation into UFOs begins.
William Moore would later reveal that the whole New Mexico UFO disinformation scheme was run out of the Pentagon by a Colonel Barry Hennessey of AFOSI. When the Defense Department phone directory was checked, Hennessey was listed under the “Dept. of Special Techniques.” Working under him at the time was the same Col. Weaver.
Friedman therefore raised the question as to whether Weaver rendered an objective intelligence opinion about the authenticity of the MJ-12 papers or was deliberately misleading the FBI as a counterintelligence and disinformation agent, much like Doty had done with Moore and Howe earlier.
Journalist Howard Blum in his book Out There (1990) further described the FBI’s difficulty in getting at the truth of the matter. One frustrated FBI agent told Blum, “All we’re finding out is that the government doesn’t know what it knows. There are too many secret levels. You can’t get a straight story. It wouldn’t surprise me if we never know if the papers are genuine or not.”
Prominent UFO Cases In History
Important UFO cases documented through-out history:
Occurring during the “Great Airship” wave of the late 1800s, the legend of a UFO crash and a dead alien have survived over a century of debate. Allegedly, the dead alien pilot is buried in the local cemetery. The story of the crash was related by local newspapers, the UPI, and AP. The city received “historical site” status because of the incident.
Brought to public knowledge by UFO investigator Leo Stringfield, from an account by Charlette Mann. Mann related the story of her grandfather Reverend William Huffman, who claimed to have been called to the scene of a crashed UFO with dead aliens in Missouri.
Shortly after the Japanese invaded Pearl Harbor, the city of Los Angeles was invaded by a flying object of unknown origin. U.S. military sent volley after volley of shells at the alleged flying saucer without damaging the intruder. Six people were killed during the attacks.
While searching for a missing troop transport near Yakima, Washington, pilot Kenneth Arnold got the surprise of his life. He spotted nine discs flying in formation. After he landed, a news conference was held in which Arnold called the unknowns flying saucers, the first time the phrase was used.
The most famous UFO case of all occurred near Corona, Mexico. Rancher Mac Brazel found strange crash debris on his morning rounds, and reported his find to local radio station. Soon, the military from Roswell AFB was involved, and issued a press statement that the Air Force had captured a UFO. This statement was soon recanted.
Kentucky Air National Guard Captain Thomas Mantell was piloting his F-51, when he received radio orders to check out a large, metallic disc which had been reported by citizens of the area, and clearly seen from the tower of Godman Air Force Base. After reporting that he was in pursuit of the object, radio contact was lost, and his plane soon crashed to the ground, killing Mantell.
Captain Clarence S. Chiles, and co-pilot John B. Whitted were piloting an Eastern Airlines DC-3, when their plane was approached by huge cigar-shaped UFO. The object barely missed colliding with the DC-3. The two men made one of the very first reports of a UFO by commercial airline pilots.
In the skies above Fargo, North Dakota on October 1, 1948, Lieutenant George F. Gorman of the North Dakota Air National Guard had an experience he would never forget, a 27-minute dogfight with a UFO
In 1949, a series of 10 visual sightings of UFOs occurred in or near Norwood, Ohio. UFOs were sighted by policemen, ministers, newspaper reporters and more. Also, still photographs and motion picture film were taken.
South American Dr. Enrique Botta would have a close encounter of the third kind when he entered a UFO sitting on the side of the road. Inside the craft, the ex-pilot found three dead aliens, and even touched one. When he went for help, by the time he returned, the object was gone.
A group of Texas Tech professors saw numerous groups of racing lights one night. The sighting was reported, and the local Air Force denied that any planes were flying that night. 18-year old Carl Hart Jr would take five photographs of the fast moving objects, which would become known as the Lubbock Lights.
UFOs buzzed the White House, the Capitol building, and the Pentagon. Seemingly the unknown objects were defying the very governmental agencies sworn to protect the United States from foreign powers. Washington National Airport and Andrews Air Force Base picked up a number of UFOs on their radar screens on July 19, 1952, beginning a wave of sightings still unexplained to this day. Numerous photographs were taken of the unknown objects.
Flying a Scorpion plane, Pilot Felix Moncla is lost while chasing a UFO over Lake Superior. The Air Force claims that the plane crashed, but no debris was ever found, and two radar blips merged into one before disappearing.
George Gatay, who was foreman of an eight-man construction crew, was unexpectedly drawn away from his crew, feeling a sense of “peculiar drowsiness.” A short distance from his construction site, Gatay was amazed to encounter a man standing on a slope, some 30 feet from him. The “man” was wearing an opaque glass helmet with a large visor. He was wearing gray coveralls, and short boots. He also held an object in his hand, which Gatay described as a weapon of some kind, like a rod. The humanoid was near a UFO.
One of the most bizarre accounts of alien contact on record. The Sutton family farmhouse was under siege from small alien beings for several hours one night. Family members shot at the beings, but without effect. The beings has claw-like hands, and large ears. This account has never been debunked.
No less than 8 official sightings, including policemen, would highlight a night of terror in a small Texas town. UFOs were flying, hovering, and even landing on the roads around Levelland. One of the best documented cases in UFO history.
Father William Gill, Anglican priest, would relate a series of remarkable sightings above his church. UFOs with occupants in the clouds who waved back at witnesses highlight this case. Called “one of the best” documented cases of a close encounter of the second kind by J. Allen Hynek.
The best known case of alien abduction. While driving home from vacation, Betty and husband Barney Hill would lose two hours of time during an alien encounter. They would undergo physical exams at the hands of their alien captors. This case was the subject of a book and a movie.
Policeman Lonnie Zamora would see an unusual object landed in the desert of New Mexico while racing to what he thought was an explosion. Two occupants of the craft were visible. Zamora could make out an insignia on the front of the craft before it flew away. Investigated by Dr. J. Allen Hynek.
A series of UFO sightings took place which gained vast media attention, and became the subject of the book, “Incident at Exeter,” by John G. Fuller. The sensational happenings were also featured in a two-part article in “Look” magazine. Many eyewitness accounts by respected community members make this one of the best cases.
What exactly soared through the late afternoon skies of Canada, Michigan, Ohio, and Pennsylvania on December 5, 1965? Eye witnesses described the unknown object as a “fireball,” but it seemed to be under some type of intelligent control, as it veered somewhat in Ohio toward the Quaker State. The fiery object crashed into a wooded area near Westmoreland County.
While prospecting for silver near Falcon Lake, Steven Michalak was astonished to see several strange objects in the sky. One hovered, and then landed. Michalak ventured close enough to touch the landed craft, and look inside. He was subsequently burned on the chest by an exhaust vent.
Eyewitnesses see several unknown objects in the sky, and soon they crash into the sea. Rescue workers, fearing a plane crash, rush to the area, only to find bright, yellow foam on the ocean. Several days of search find nothing. Investigators believe the object, still intact, has left the area.
Sixteen year old Ron Johnson was tending the family sheep when his attention was suddenly drawn to a mushroom-shaped UFO appearing in the night sky. The flying object, metallic with multi-colored lights, was hovering approximately 75 feet away from Ron among some trees. After the craft’s disappearance, a strange, glowing ring was found where the object landed. This ring persisted for several years.
The strange case of nineteen-year-old Calvin Parker, and forty-two-year-old Charles Hickson actually began a day before their famous encounter. On October 10, 1973, fifteen different people, including two policemen, reported seeing a large, silver UFO slowly fly over a housing project in St. Tammany Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana. Only a scant 24 hours later, Hickson and Parker would have the scare of their lives; a frightening encounter with an eerie UFO, and occupants.
While working on a government land clearing project with six other crew members, Travis Walton approaches a glowing UFO. He is hit with a blue green beam. The crew members run from the scene, thinking Travis is dead. Five days later he reappears, not having eaten during his absence. He relates that he was taken aboard a UFO, and experimented on by alien beings.
An unknown object is observed over the Loring strategic air base, approaching the nuclear storage facility and causing a Stage 3 alert. At one point, the object hovered in midair over the base runway. The UFO was never identified.
Three well respected women are driving home after dinner when they see an unknown object in the sky. The next thing they remember is losing control of their car, and being backed into a field. Investigation and regressive hypnosis tell a tale of alien abduction, complete with embarrassing medical procedures. One of the best documented cases of alien abduction.
The Iranian UFO chase is one of the premier UFO encounters in the history of the subject. A highly advanced vehicle, performing well beyond present-day capabilities, created fits for the American-equipped Iranian Air Force. Blackouts of the missile firing control panel, just before the pilot was about to launch his air-to-air missile, could be attributed to a mechanical fault seems beyond what sheer odds would allow.
While night fishing on the Allagash Waterway, four art student friends see a glowing object over the lake. The next thing they can remember is being back on shore, and missing time. Subsequent investigation will reveal an alien abduction complete with physical experimentation.
The Brazilian island of Colares would be invaded by UFOs of all shapes and sizes in 1977. The UFOs target citizens with an intense beam of light, knocking many to the ground. These individuals were rendered unconcious and awoke with anemia. The Air Force investigates and takes 5 hours of film, and many photographs, without giving an explanation.
Boats and aircraft found no trace of a 20-year old Australian pilot who disappeared with his plane after radioing that he was being chased by a UFO. Frederick Valentich was on a 125 mile training flight in his single engine Cessna 182 along the coast of Bass Strait when he told air traffic controllers in Melbourne that he was being buzzed by a UFO.
Several glowing unknown objects appear over the Bentwaters-Woodbridge AFB. Military police investigate the objects. They see objects moving through the forest. One triangle UFO is seen on the ground. One officer actually touches the outside of the UFO, before it slowly moves away through the forest.
An extremely compelling UFO sighting was an event which took place in the Piney Woods of Texas, near the town of Huffman. On the chilly night of December 29, 1980, two women and one child encountered a craft of unknown origin, and all three suffered not only emotional trauma, but severe physical injury as well.
A man’s attention is attracted by a slight noise, a sort of faint whistling. He sees a device in the air at the height of a big pine tree at the edge of the property. The device was coming lower toward the ground. He clearly sees the device resting on the ground. Right away it lifted off, still emitting a slight whistling sound. Reaching a point above the trees, it left at high speed toward the forest of Trans.
The Hudson Valley UFO account is made up of many sightings, all similar, and all pointing to one conclusion. There was something “unexplained” going on only an hour’s drive north of New York City. The UFO lights were a brilliant red, green, and white. What was the strange craft? This would be the question that many would try to answer.
A series of UFO sightings beginning in 1987 would make the small town of Gulf Breeze, Florida a UFO hot spot for years to come. Ed Walter’s unusually clear photographs would start the ball rolling. UFO investigators from all over the world would descend on this peaceful community to try to solve the mystery of the Gulf Breeze UFOs.
In 1988, the United States Coast Guard has a close encounter. They receive report of a large UFO hovering over the frozen Lake Erie. After a close observation, they see the object nearly on the ice, with smaller triangle UFOs coming to and fro around the large UFO. A true, unsolved mystery.
One of the most profound and well documented UFO waves. All of the reports related a large object flying at low altitude. The craft was of a flat, triangular shape, with lights underneath. This giant craft made not a sound as it slowly moved across the landscape of Belgium. There was free sharing of information as the Belgian populace tracked this craft as it moved from the town of Liege to the border of the Netherlands and Germany.
A cigar-shaped object with a row of brightly flashing lights along its length was observed over the Texas panhandle by the crew of a westward bound America West B-757 airliner on May 25, 1995. The case was thoroughly investigated by Walter N. Webb on behalf of the UFO Research Coalition, who interviewed the crew and air traffic controllers. Webb also obtained a copy of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) voice tapes of conversations between airplane and ground during the sighting.
Like a scene from a science fiction movie, a huge, circular object slowly moved over the city of Phoenix and surrounding areas. Numerous photographs, and an abundance of video film make this one of the best documented cases in UFO history. Numerous eye witness accounts describe a large, slow moving triangular shaped UFO.
An extraordinary video film taken by Mexican military pilots stunned the world. According to Mexican officials, the encounter occurred on March 5, when an aircraft belonging to the Mexican Air Force, a Merlin C26/A, was engaged in drug interdiction patrols. At around 17:00 hours it detected the presence of 11 objects following it. The routine flight took place between Copalar, Chiapas and the State of Campeche.
On November 7, 2006, one of the nation’s busiest airports, O’Hare in Chicago was visited by a UFO which blasted an “eerie” hole in the cloud cover. The UFO was seen for several minutes, according to eyewitness accounts of United Airlines employees.
Let’s also not forget about the other side of UFO cases…The Men In Black, and the attempts both successful and sometimes not, to cover-up these sightings! The Real Men In Black: Evidence, Famous Cases, and True Stories of These Mysterious Men and their Connection to the UFO Phenomena is an excellent book about the mysterious origins and functions of the MIB.

Some of the better UFO pics from various places around the world. So if UFO’s are not real, then just what are these objects shown below? One of the better theories is that these UFO’s are dimensional travelers…beaings from an alternate Earth that exists next to ours, only on a different frequency, yet co-existing with ours. After all, why would any Alien race want to try and travel 40,000 light years? I would hate to be the one who has to pay for the fuel for that trip!

Notable alien abduction cases
Called the “flagship case” of alien abduction. A husband and wife (Betty and Barney Hill) taking a short vacation see a bright object in the evening. They are stopped on the road by aliens, and become part of an abduction case for the ages. Regressive hypnosis plays a major role in unveiling a dark secret… a secret of alien abduction, and medical experimentation.
In South Ashburnham, Massachusetts on the night of January 25 1967, one of the most celebrated cases of UFO abduction began. Betty Andreasson was working in her kitchen while her seven children, mother, and father were in the living room… suddenly a bright light invades the house. From the yard, alien creatures are seen hopping toward the house! One of the strangest abduction cases.
As Patrolman Schirmer passed through the intersection of Highway 6 with Highway 63 on the outskirts of Ashland, he saw what appeared to be red lights on a large truck stopped a short way down Highway 63. He decided to turn around and check it out. He drove the short distance down 63 and stopped with his headlights shining on the object. According to Schirmer, the object was definitely not a truck. The red lights that he had seen were blinking through the oval portholes of a metallic, oval-shaped object.
Only seven and a half years after the Betty and Barney Hill story, the New England states would again host an alien abduction. Buff Ledge in Vermont would be the site of a visitation by four UFOs which would make revolutionary aerial maneuvers, Two counselors would suffer missing time, and seek professional help.
Fifteen different people see a large, silver UFO fly over a housing project in St. Tammany Parish, New Orleans, Louisiana. Only a scant 24 hours later, Calvin Parker and Charles Hickson would unwillingly take a journey into the unknown… strange creatures with claw-like hands abduct them. J. Allen Hynek investigates.
Alamogorde, New Mexico would be the location of a UFO encounter involving Air Force Sergeant Charles L. Moody on August 13, 1975. Moody was in the desert observing a meteor shower at ab 1:15 A.M. when he saw a glowing, metallic, disk-shaped object falling toward the ground about 300 feet away.
As seven loggers began their journey home, they see a “luminous object, shaped like a flattened disc.” All of the men agreed that Travis Walton, captivated by the sight, left the truck to get a closer look. A blue beam hits him, throwing him to the ground. He would vanish for five days, and soon begin telling his story of the inside of an extraterrestrial spacecraft.
While America was still buzzing over the Travis Walton abduction, three women are abducted near Stanford, Kentucky. Heading for Hustonville on Highway 78, they suddenly see a “bright, red” object in the clear, night sky, turning a nice evening into a night of terror. Read about this in depth investigation here.
The Allagash Waterway incident would involve multiple witnesses. Four artists were enjoying a canoeing trip on the Allagash Waterway when their pleasant evening was turned into a nightmare… A nightmare of missing time and alien abduction. At first only missing time, and then forgetfulness. Finally a connection is made, and little by the details become known in this compelling case of alien abduction.
Robert Taylor was sixty-one-years-old at the time that he had the most unusual encounter of his life. He had worked as a forester all of his adult life in the Dechmont woods located in Livingston, West Lothian, Scotland. On the morning of Friday, November 9, 1979, he and his red setter rounded a corner on a forest trail and saw an unbelievable sight, a UFO! The object appeared to be hovering just above the forest floor. It made no sound, and seemed to be motionless.
Well known writer Whitley Strieber would be abducted by aliens while in his isolated cabin in upstate New York over the Christmas season of 1985. He encountered 4 types of alien beings, which subjected him to medical tests.
A policeman named Philip Spencer claims to have taken a picture of an alien being. If this is true, it is one of only a few in existence. The scary Ilkley Moor in Yorkshire, England would hold the secret of the strange creature encountered one early morning. Godfrey was frightened, but ran after the creature, taking one photograph. See it here. Through hypnosis, he would recall an odd flying object, and an alien abduction.
John Salter Jr. and his son are abducted by benevolent aliens. One of the few cases in which alien abduction turned out to be a good thing. Medical experimentation has a happy ending, with improved health for both abductees.
An extremely compelling case of alien abduction is that of Linda Napolitano. Napolitano has claimed that she was abducted by the so-called “greys,” who floated her from a closed bedroom window into a hovering UFO. As time went by, several different eye witnesses came forward to substantiate her claims… Several bystanders, including a well known politician, actually see the incident.
In August 1993, 27-year-old Kelly Cahill, her husband, and three children were driving home after a visit to a friend’s house. Their routine journey would soon become a harrowing trip into an unknown world of strange beings that occupied space but were void of color as we know it. The Dandenong foothills, near Victoria, Australia would be forever linked to one of the strangest creatures in Ufological archives.
One of the weirdest cases reported to the Welsh Federation of Independent Ufologists is the multiple sighting of UFOs on the same night – except one family got too close for comfort and were apparently abducted. The strange and disturbing events began to unfold when for several nights an elderly man living in Little Orme, Conwy, was troubled by what he called “frightening” beams of light over the Great Orme.
Dulce base: Aliens amongst us and doing experiments on humans?
Secret Bases – Dulce – Basic Information
-Excerpt from The World’s Greatest Alien Conspiracy Theories by Nigel Cawthorne.
Area 51 in the deserts of Nevada is not the only place where aliens are assisting the American military with their technology. There is another secret base in the north of New Mexico, near the town of Dulce and close to the Jicarilla Indian Reservation. Dulce has a population of just nine hundred. It is an out-of-the-way and otherwise unremarkable place. However, UFO researchers have discovered that is it home to the most incredible and sinister facility. Under the desert plains is a secret underground base. The vast complex is home to a joint US government-alien biogenetic laboratory, which carries out hideous experiments on both humans and animals.
The base came to light when Security Officer Thomas Edwin Castello spilled the beans in a document known as The Dulce Papers, which he circulated in the early 1980s. By then the project had been going on for a considerable time. Castello had taken the documents from the Dulce underground facility, and he backed them with a videotape and over thirty black-and-white photographs. He had worked as a security officer at the Dulce Base until 1979, but by then he had had his fill of what was going on in the complex and decided to part company with his secretive employers. But before he left, he stole some documents and removed a security videotape which showed various views of the underground complex from the base’s control centre. He made five copies of the documents, and hid the originals. The copies were then distributed to the UFO community via intermediaries.
Realising that what he had seen at the base was extremely sensitive he knew that he and his family would be in danger. They had to go into hiding. But when he went to pick up his wife and children, government agents were waiting for him. He fled and never saw his family again.
Castello was in his mid-twenties when he first joined the service and was given training in photography at a top-secret underground facility in West Virginia. He stayed with the US Air Force for seven years, leaving in 1971 to work for the Rand Corporation – America’s military think –tank – in Santa Monica, California. By 1977, he was considered trustworthy and he was transferred to the secret Dulce facility. He bought a home is Santa Fe, and commuted to work from there five days a week via a shuttle system that ran deep underground. In the hallway of the tube stations hallway, he saw a sign that read: “To Los Alamos”. The tracks, he believes, also led on to the underground base in the Nevada desert that is known as Area 51.
The work force at Dulce was strange, to say the least. Castello estimates that there were over 18 000 small ‘Grey’ aliens on staff, along with hundreds of reptilian humanoids known as the ‘Draco’. The underground facility was so large that it had seven sub-levels. The aliens lived on level five and worked on levels six and seven.
All sorts of bizarre experiments were going on there. The aliens were doing research into hypnosis, telepathy and dreams. Another area of interest was human auras. They had paid dividends, Castello said. The aliens were able to separate the “bioplasmic body from the physical body” and place an “alien life force” within a human body after removing the humans “soul”.
Level six of the complex was known as “Nightmare Hall”. This was where the aliens did hideous genetic experiments on all forms of terrestrial life- fish, seals, mice and, of course, humans. There was a storage area for the results of these experiments. Tanks contained multi-armed and multi-legged humans, while cages housed tall, humanoid, bat-like creatures. There were ‘row upon row of thousands of humans, human-mixture remains and embryos of humans kept in cold storage” Castello says.
But worst: “I frequently encountered humans in cages. Usually there were dazed pr drugged but sometimes they cried and begged for help. We were told that they were hopelessly insane, and involved high-risk drug tests to cure insanity. We were told never to speak to them at all”.
Despite these grisly experiments, it seemed that the aliens had no hostile intentions. Both the Greys and the reptilian aliens seemed to have been on Earth for thousands of years. Humans didn’t bother them. They were far more concerned about other space-faring races. The aliens didn’t seem to be interested in the land, minerals, fuel or water that Earth could offer them either. Their primary concern was the magnetic power of the Earth. The aliens have learnt to harvest this energy in a way unknown to terrestrial science. Magnetic energy was used to control the elevators and supply heat and power to the base.
The Dulce Papers show that aliens were working hand in hand with the US government. Castello can reel of a list of US government agencies who maintained a presence at Dulce. They included the Department of Energy, the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Department of the Environment. Castello himself was recruited through his government service.
Security was super-tight at the Dulce facility. Visitors were weighed, naked, before being allowed to enter. Their weight was recorded, and they were given a one-piece suit and an ID card that could be used to access the various levels. There were scales scattered throughout the complex. Everyone’s weight was recorded every day and a gain of more than three pounds would lead to a thorough physical examination, including an X-ray. Everyone who worked there was under the surveillance of the security guards at all times. No one was allowed to carry anything into sensitive areas. Everything was delivered by conveyor-belt and X-rayed before being distributed.
Bill Hamilton has released info from Thomas Castello at UFO conventions, as well as John Lear and John Rhodes. Castello’s information shows that there are other alien bases scattered throughout the solar systems. There are similar facilities on the moons of Saturn and Jupiter.
Along with the photographic and documentary evidence Castello has presented, circumstantial evidence that something strange is going on at Dulce has been accruing. Between 1976 and 1978 Dulce was the centre of a string of cattle mutilations that left local ranchers mystified. Senseless and unexplainable attacks on livestock became so frequent that research teams from all over the world converged on the tiny town. In July 1978, scientist Howard Burgess discovered that many cattle were covered with strange markings that only showed up when they were placed under Ultra-Violet light. A glittery substance was found on the right side of their necks, on the right ear and on the right leg. Analysis of the substance revealed that it was rich in magnesium and potassium. Dulce is also a Mecca for UFO sightings, many of which occurred around the same time the mutilated cows were found. And following up on Castello’s story, a research team took sounding of the ground in the area. It revealed a complex of deep cavities under the mesa.
Naturally, the US government refuses to acknowledge the existence of any military installation around or under Dulce, New Mexico – just as they denied the existence of Area 51. However, they will have to pit their wits against legions of UFO researchers determined to unearth the town’s dark secret.
