Bill Moore’s Disinfo – A Vehicle for Injected Social Memes


Bill Moore Most anyone who’s researched Ufology history for any length of time knows the story of Bill Moore, Bob Pratt, and Jaime Shandera.  The short version is that following the publication of his book The Roswell Incident in the summer of 1980, Moore was contacted by someone claiming to be a Colonel at Offut AFB, as well as from another individual (Doty) from Kirkland AFB. Those contacting Moore convinced him that they were "high level government Intelligence" personnel who were "uncomfortable with the government’s continuing cover-up."

Puzzle Pieces from 1976 through 1985

No one has ever really pieced together, or fully exposed, all of the individuals who were involved in this early scam. Richard Doty is the only person who’s been publicly revealed as a contact. Moore’s announcement at MUFON in 1989 left much to be desired in terms of details and source names.

It took until 2007, at the MUFON International UFO Symposium Proceedings, for a well-written and thoroughly researched background expose to finally go public regarding these background activities surrounding the MJ-12 releases.  MUFON researchers did a brilliant job providing the public with a fair and balanced review of some of the activities of these scammers through the 1980s. 

Bob Pratt It helped that they had access to the "secret tapes," in which MUFON UFO Journal Editor, Robert Pratt, had recorded meetings and phone conversations with Moore.  These tapes revealed some fascinating new details about the men behind the scam. (Unfortunately, Bob Pratt passed away in November 2005, the same year and month the hoaxers attempted to start releasing the same stories via Project Serpo.) The general timeline detailed in the MUFON document, covering the years before the MJ-12 stories went "public" is summarized as follows.

-> Since September 5, 1980, Moore communicated with a "mysterious AF Colonel" through "middleman" Richard Doty (much like Doty also served (and still does) as the "middleman" for Bob Collins, author of Exempt from Disclosure , and many of Collins’ own "mysterious" sources.

-> Doty and his "mysterious contacts" recycled information fed to them by Moore and Friedman and recycled that information, in the form of allegedly classified or secret documents and stories, to UFO researchers including Linda Howe, Bruce Maccabee and others.

-> December 29 and 30, 1981 – Doty meets Moore at a restaurant and provided him with three documents, one of which was the "one-page Aquarius Teletype."

-> In 1982, with Doty’s assistance, Moore tried to get Bob Pratt to help him publish a book centered upon the Aquarius/MJ12 documents. The book project fizzled out in 1983. Richard Doty cooperated under the pseudonym "Ronald L. Davis."

-> After Moore told Doty the story of a famous UFO hoax, Doty and his associates used those story details to create the "Aquarius Executive Briefing" document and a few months later attempted to pass it off as an authentic document to Ufologist Linda Howe in April of 1983.

Aquarius/MJ12 Documents Were Created from Data Recycled from Ufologists

The most significant finding of the MUFON report was that the released MJ-12/Aquarius documents recycled information Moore, Shandera and Pratt had previously fed Doty.  The Mufon report quotes Friedman in 1996 writing:

"…the simple fact of the matter is the Moore, Shandera, and I had already picked up on all the names of the [MJ-12] list prior to the receipt of the [MJ-12] film…"

From page 107 of the MUFON report we get a glimpse of the people who appear to be helping Doty run the scam.

Linda Howe "Some months later, in early 1983, I became aware that Rick was involved with a team of several others [in AFOSI], including one fellow from Denver that I knew of and at least one who was working out of Washington, D.C., in playing an elaborate disinformation game against a prominent UFO researcher [Linda Howe] who, at the time, had close connections with a major television film company [HBO] interested in doing a UFO documentary…."

 The information that Doty was feeding Linda Howe was a story based upon the Aztec information Moore had fed Doty only months earlier.

On page 116, the author of the 2007 MUFON analysis recognizes the clear philosophy that was injected by Doty’s group into the material.

"The Aquarius Document contains “philosophy” as well as technical data. In the section which deals with the philosophy behind the need to maintain a “Top Secret” posture for as long as possible with respect to the Aquarius data, are the following two startling conclusions which have been arrived at by the US government with respect to UFOs:

(A) The events surrounding Jesus Christ and the establishment of the Christian religion were manipulations affected [sic] by beings of an advanced civilization from another world. [snip]

(B) Release of this data to the public would not only severely cripple the ability of the government (indeed any government in the Western world) to effectively govern, but would also severely damage the very fibre [sic] of Western civilization as we know it."

The Philosophy Distributed Within the MJ-12 Documents

In fact, MUFON got it exactly right. The philosophy that the creators of the documents were trying to distribute, by implanting it within stories of crashed aliens and, in 2005, stories about a human-alien exchange program, remains the same. 

Some specific excerpts from those documents, released in the 1980’s, that portray how specific and how much focus was placed on this ideology is shown below.  The common theme is always the same – (1) Aliens “planting” Christ, (2) Hints of Genetic Manipulation throughout our evolution (notice the focus on evolution).  (3) Alien technology far exceeds our own but we have the potential to reverse-engineer it.  From the MJ-12 documents: 

This first section injects the concept of Christ as a "planted" human.

“(TS/ORCON) Most governmental documents pertaining to UFO sightings, incidents and governmental policies, including Project Blue Book, have been released to the public under FOIA or under various other release programs.  [snip…] There was other information obtained from EBE that was deemed sensitive and not releasable to the public. Notably, Project Aquarius Volume IX, which pertains to tracing the Aliens’ first visitation of earth back some 5,000 years. EBE reported that 2,000 years ago his ancestors planted a human creature on earth to assist the inhabitants of earth in developing a civilization. This information was only vague and the exact identity or background information on this homo-sapien was not obtained. Undoubtfully [sic], if this information was released to the public, it would cause a worldwide religious panic. MJ3 has developed a plan that will allow release of Project Aquarius, Volumes I thru III.”

This next section injects the meme suggesting that humans have alien technology in our possession, and may be able to "reverse engineer" it with approprite [fringe] scientific funding and advancement.

“(TS/ORCON) In the 1976 MJ3 report (Atch 6), it was estimated the Aliens’ technology was many thousands of years ahead of United States technology. Our scientists speculate that until our technology develops to a level equal to the Aliens’ , we cannot understand the large volume of scientific information the United States has already gained from the Aliens. This advancement of United States Technology may take many hundreds of years.”

In fact, countless believers have latched on to this meme through the years, and an entire fringe scientific cottage industry is now based on alien "propulsion" and reverse engineered UFO craft.

Today you can find "researchers" who are attempting to "reverse engineer" UFO propulsion technology, clean energy technology, and other technologies that the "aliens" are supposedly offering humanity. Millionaires actually invest money into these sort of projects. 

The next injected meme focuses on genetics.

“1. (TS/ORCON) PROJECT BANDO: (PROWORD: RISK) Originally established in 1949. Its mission was to collect and evaluate medical information from the surviving Aliens [sic] creature and the recovered Alien bodies. This Project medically examined EBE and provided United States medical researchers with certain answers to the evolution theory . (OPR: CIA) (Terminated in 1974).”

In the next update, we will outline how we used social networking analysis to connect these same MJ-12 memes to later releases, and directly to the same people who were distributing those releases in 2005.
