Remote Viewing is All About Scientology?


Tarot CardsGary Bekkum of Starstream Research responds to our last update somewhat heatedly at his blog, calling it “naive” to think that the CIA would not know what it is that they were allowing into the government’s scientific domain.  Gary writes:

“REALITY UNCOVERED’s Ryan Dube latest blog post suggests the story behind the AVIARY “Core Story” of US government contact with an intelligence not of this Earth begins with L. Ron Hubbard and the inner teachings of Scientology.”

He goes on to imply that the focus of RU is Scientology, and that we’re drawing some kind of direct connection between Scientology and the “Core Story.”  Even though the article did nothing of the sort.  The intent was to point out what religious-like beliefs can do to destroy a scientific study.

He continues:

“Dube appears so focused on the connection of key researchers at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) to Scientology that he completely overlooks the game of ‘psychic (cold) warfare’ CIA and KGB initiated at least ten or more years prior to the effort at SRI.”

In fact, the reason we overlook the cold war antics between the CIA and KGB is because they do not factor into the Core Story.  To be clear, there is virtually nothing within government or military that factors into the Core Story.  Nothing, except what the creators decided to filter into it from their own experiences during their time working within those (now declassified) projects. But those connections are superficial at best.

In response, I’ve sent Gary an email trying to clarify what the message of the last article really was.  In that email, I wrote:

“Thanks for your comments Gary – I’ve responded as well.  Based on your opening paragraph you may have misunderstood the article.

The point wasn’t that the source of the “core story” was Scientology…I think a few of  us here would agree that theory was put to bed a long time ago.

The *only* point of the post was that by allowing a religious belief system into a government research program, the government inadvertently introduced into the government scientific community a dangerous instability.  Vallee has noted in his book “Messengers of Deception,” what this instability can do within the general population – it leads to cults.  I’m simply drawing the same sort of parallel to what the government experienced within the Remote Viewing program from the 1970’s through the early 90’s.

What I find fascinating is the point where the military RV’ers – the guys who believed it was important to adhere to the “strict” documented protocols, and guys like Dale Graff who thought it was perfectly okay to allow civilian practitioners of tarot cards, meditation, and various other techniques.  Any insight into those disagreements would be very useful – if you have any documentation on that.  Dale seemed to greatly despise Ed Dames by the way…

Again – these are the sort of things one can expect from spiritual/religious based belief system being used as the foundation for a scientific study.

Best Regards,
-Ryan”

Gary asked me to post my comments, so in the spirit of openness, I’ve posted the email here just in case there were any other readers out there who may not have clearly understood our position on this.

Just remember – the Core Story was created by civilians, not government officials or military insiders.  It is based on a religious-like belief system founded on the interpretation of data that these particular folks consider “hard data,” but which others might not.  Instead of sharing the hard data with us, we get the ridiculous public version of the Core Story – which has morphed through the decades into the pathetic beast that we see today.

A Breakthrough: The Dale Graff Interview


Air Force Given the clear indications that something was going on at Wright Air Force Base during the late 1970s, possibly in parallel with either the FTD remote viewing work, the Project Blue Book activities, or both (or neither).  One thing that the timeline and the appearance of that common MJ-12 "philosophy" tells us is that all of those stories were created much earlier than when the public first received them through Ufologists Moore, Pratt and others. 

In his efforts to bolster the information found in Collin’s Exempt From Disclosure ,  Bruce Maccabee lets slip a tiny detail – he received details directly from Kellerstrass that only a year later was finally made public in the form of the "MJ-12" disclosures, and provided by allegedly "anonymous" sources. 

In order to determine the truth of Ernie Kellerstrass’ claims, and to better understand potential connections with the FTD remote viewing research, we decided to make contact with the elusive "Dale Graff" – that "guy in the office" who was supposedly telling Ernie stories about EBE, a book that detailed aliens visiting during the time of Christ, and more.

Dale Graff’s Current Status

Dale Graff Prior to my discussions with him, Dale Graff had just recently moved, so it took a few email exchanges to hammer out a good day and time for a conversation.  However, Dale responded positively to my initial inquiry for a phone interview to discuss his remote viewing work at FTD in the 1970’s and his recent work and books on consciousness .  I hoped to learn more about this mysterious man who is often quoted as a source by Collins and the "Aviary" crew, but remains a silent background character who has virtually little (if any) involvement in the UFO arena.

The Dale Graff Interview

Dale Graff is currently retired, but actively working with a research group on consciousness studies and "dreams."  I contacted Dale on Sept 9, 2007 via email, and a few days later I received a polite and cordial response from Dale that he would be more than happy to discuss topics for a possible interview with us.

Upon calling Dale, I was struck by his soft-spoken nature, his enormous insight and intelligence, and his open willingness to talk about the phenomenon of psychic ability and the ufo phenomenon.He is very knowledgable about the entire paranormal field, including both the psychic phenomenon and the UFO phenomenon.  Dale had the pleasure of working under Tony (Anthony) Cacciopo, so Dale enjoyed access to many of the Blue Book investigations, and for a short period sat in the room where the "red phone" was while waiting for his clearances to pass for the remote viewing research.

During this phonecall, we spoke for about an hour regarding the history of the Remote Viewing program, and his part in it.  We discussed his hypothesis regarding the source of the psychic phenomenon, the success rates that were realized during the remote viewing program, and the subsequent fall-out toward the end of the Remote Viewing program related to his reasons for retiring. Dale now conducts his own private research in the area of psychic phenomenon as related to dreams, and more recently short-term precognition studies, which we hope to report on here at RU in the near future, if Dale is willing.

 Toward the end of our conversation, I asked Dale about his time at Wright Patterson working at FTD on the AF Remote Viewing research projects.  I asked  him specifically about the claims that were made by Ernie Kellerstrass in his interview with Bruce Maccabee (and his claims made to Bob Collins as well).  The following transcript is from my scribbled short-hand notes that I kept during the phone interview. 

Unfortunately, after I let it slip to Bob Collins, Kit Green, and Hal Puthoff that I was in contact with Dale Graff, Dale informed me that "someone" had warned him off from talking with us.  After a few more emails, I stopped hearing from Dale Graff completely.  This was unfortunate, because I personally liked Dale a great deal.  He was one of the first authentic and truly "nice" people that I’ve ever met in the course of my own investigations. I will greatly miss the potentially fascinating and interesting discussions we could have continued having.

I’ve highlighted a few of the critical points that took place at the end of our phone conversation below.

Ryan:   Dale – there was a book written in 2005 by Bob Collins called Exempt from Disclosure…

Dale: Yes – I know Bob and he did work at FTD when I was there.  I left FTD in 1981 and I’m almost certain I met him there and met him off and on a few times.  We’ve exchanged some letters at one time (during the time before emails).  I’ve talked to him and know a little bit about him but don’t know this latest book.

Ryan: Well, some of the latest information that is in there has some claims that go back to one of his core sources – Ernie Kellerstrass…

Dale: Ahh yes – I know Ernie quite well.  I used to work for him!  He was at one time, for about a year, he was my division chief (branch chief) so I had a professional working relationship with Colonel Ernie Kellerstrass.  

Ernie and I had some very long discussions over the years, usually after duty because we didn’t want anyone to know we were talking about any of this stuff.

Ryan: In Maccabee’s background paper on Collins sources, he did an interview with Ernie in 1985, and Ernie claimed you had told him certain information that you had seen a saucer and bodies, that you had seen a secret “yellow book”….

Dale (almost choking):   I have no idea where all that came from?!  That is absolutely not true!

Ryan: Right…that’s why I wanted to get in touch with you to see if any of those claims were at all true?

Dale : NO WAY [laugh]…I’ve always been open minded and have always had a strong interest in ET life and any evidence whatsoever of ufo’s and crafts and the real story behind Roswell, Hanger 18 and all that (notes are ineligible here)….but if somebody said that I told anybody that I ever said I have seen an alien craft at Wright Patterson AFB, or anywhere at all , that’s an incorrect statement.  I’ve NEVER made that statement to anyone.  I’ve never even seen a UFO!

 

Ryan: Why do you think they would make up these kinds of stories…?

Dale: One of the reasons Bob Collins and I departed ways a little bit – he was saying things, even back in the 80’s, that sounded like he was pushing our conversations in a direction which we weren’t even at, or making statements and I don’t know where he got any of that from…

There was a lot of speculation going on, and I think this thing about yellow book…there were always different colored documents going around that signified different levels of clearance, some blue, pink, yellow – content was usually some operational project that was very sensitive, but nothing to do with some secret files of a crashed UFO or whatever he’s talking about.  I don’t know what he’s talking about, but it’s certainly nothing that I’ve ever said!

Ryan: So most of these talks with Ernie were just hypothesizing what the phenomenon could possibly be?

Dale: Yeah – just “gee wiz” kind of talk.

 

Ryan: Do you think there’s any reason Ernie would make up any of this about you?

[Removed some private comments about Ernie at Dale’s request]

Dale:   …I was always guarded with our discussions.  He (Ernie) was a very helpful individual and very supportive, but it wasn’t really well known in the organization that I was involved in the Remote Viewing research.  I happened to be assigned to his group for a certain time…it was classified so some of the stuff I couldn’t even share with him.

Because it was such a political hot potato – only a few people in the organization were allowed to be read into the project, and I think at one point I had a lot of meetings, about once a month, with the chief scientist (Dr. Cacciopo).  He came in mostly from the psychological side – he was very interested in the topic and just wanted personal updates, and there were times I’d be in his office late at night and we were just shooting the breeze discussing the phenomenon of remote viewing – the source of it – the kind of things we’re discussing here.  I don’t even remember having any discussions with Cacciopo about UFO’s!

Ryan: If anyone had ever said you and Cacciopo had gone to a number of high level classified meetings, would those meetings most likely have been related to the Remote Viewing research that you were involved with at the time?

Dale: Yes, absolutely.

Analysis and Summary

Based on some of the descriptions about Ernie, the odds aren’t looking too good for Kellerstrass. 

From Bob Collins:

"Ernie was a short pudgy type of person who always seemed to have a menacing, intimidating attitude typical of AF Colonels of the time, yet full of fear and paranoia when talking about UFOs, MJ-12 and aliens, always saying that someone else had told him those stories."

Hal Puthoff (in an email to me in 2007 after already learning about our interview):

"Met him only once, in the ’80’s, so memory is vague.  Friendly host  for our mtg.  Certainly convinced of the ET presence because of firsthand exposure to at least one event.  Bruce Maccabee’s "Hawk Tales" captures his  claims in detail.  Difficulty in assessing his viewpoints is that Dale  Graff, whose opinion I value after having known him as my contract monitor for ~  a decade, first at FTD, then DIA, claimed Ernie exaggerates.  Don’t know if  this is the truth, or if Dale is dissembling."

Dr. Kit Green:  

"HIGHLY VOLUBLE, PRESSURED SPEECH, POOR LISTENER"

Bob Collins tells a number of amazing tales in his book, Exempt From Disclosure, regarding Ernie’s valliant efforts throughout the MJ-12 affair and throughout the 1980’s to impress upon certain producers the "legitimacy" of sources and to create intrigue surrounding the story.

Who is the mysteriouis Ernie Kellerstrass? Why has he gotten away with hiding in the shadows behind Bob Collins and Rick Doty for so many years – never taking the fall when the story falls apart?  Does the story really start with Ernie?  Or is Ernie just another believer – whose mind became captured by the stories that he was "fed" back in the late 1970’s?  If so – where did the stories actually come from, and who really created them?

Believers would probably answer with the age old stereotypical cliche – the Air Force.  However, those who’ve been following along with this plot and with the characters, behaviors, and ultimately the profits enjoyed by many of those who’ve hid in the background all of these years – the answer seems far less complicated and much less esoteric than certain people would like you to think. The answer lies right in front of our faces, yet so many folks still cling to long-standing new-age UFO beliefs strengthened and cemented by these fabricated stories, and they refuse to see the men behind the curtain…even as the curtain slides cleanly to the side.

Please check back often – in future updates we’ll be reviewing some of the fascinating stories Dale Graff provided earlier in the interview, about Project Blue Book and the nature of psychic phenomenon.

ROTTEN TO THE CORE: THE ROSWELL MYTH AND MJ-12 HOAX


MJ12 To explain the lack of any unambiguous (especially physical) evidence in the public domain to support the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH), conventional wisdom in UFOlogy tells us this is because (depending on which version of the constantly changing story one wishes to believe) an alien spaceship (or two) and it’s three (or four) pilots, one of which survived for some time afterwards (or not), crashed near Roswell (or San Augustin), New Mexico in 1947 and was secretly recovered by the military without a trace.

Then, as the Myth goes, in response to what would arguably be one of the greatest scientific discovery of all time, the “temporary” government formed a shadow government with zero accountably to anybody else, including the successors to the President that formed it.  This alleged secret government was supposedly comprised of twelve well-placed officials known as the Majestic (or Majic) 12 (or MJ-12 for short).  It’s purpose was allegedly to suppress any and all evidence of ET visitation. That suppression would have required a worldwide coverup, 24/7, for over 60 years, without fail, sans a few minor “leaks” (sans any veritable evidence, of course). 

Presumably this coverup was conducted because the public couldn’t handle the truth.  The truth being, the “disturbing” message that Jesus was an alien or that humans taste like chicken to our Reptilian Overlords from Zeta Reticuli perhaps?  Additionally, the private government’s motive was allegedly to secretly reverse engineer the captured alien technology in order to… well, apparently nobody’s really sure.

Pursuant to this claim is the notion that (according to Kit Green) at some point “in the 70’s and 80’s” (coincidentally around the same time the Myth was created), MJ-12 was disbanded and the “singularly unsuccessful” task of reverse engineering alien technology was transferred into the private sector.  This is where the supporters, if not as we suspect the very originators, of the “core story” – aided by their impressive (former) credentials and an apparently unlimited supply of anonymous “insider” sources – have been singularly successful in securing funding (to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars by some accounts) for their pseudoscientific “research.”

There is only one problem.  According to the historical record, none of the handful or so of individuals who were directly involved in the Roswell incident, and handled the debris in 1947, said at the time that there was anything “other worldly” about the “tinfoil, paper, tape, and sticks” that the rancher “Mac” Brazel , reportedly found.  Consequently, the incident rapidly faded into obscurity, sans a few (most likely completely unrelated) rumors over the years.  That is, until one of those individuals, Jesse Marcel , came forward (according to professional UFOlogist and proven charlatan Stanton Friedman) over 30 years later with a slightly different tale to tell in 1978.  All of a sudden, several more “witnesses” with even more fantastic stories to tell about what happened in 1947 started to appear, seemingly out of nowhere.

Next up…

[after telling Agent J that they’re going to check the “hot sheets,” Agent K pulls up to a newsstand and buys a pile of supermarket tabloids]

Agent J: *These* are the hot sheets?

Agent K: Best investigative reporting on the planet. But go ahead, read the New York Times if you want. They get lucky sometimes.

Bruce Maccabee Interviews Ernie “Hawk” Kellerstrass


2007 Mufon Symposium According to the publication, "An Estimate of the Situation: The Extraterrestrial Hypothesis," presented at the 2007 MUFON International UFO Symposium, allegedly an AF Colonel (possibly former) and Rick Doty contacted Moore initially in September of 1980.  Taking this date into consideration, it’s important to dig further back into the ongoing activities of these individuals prior to 1980, before they started interfacing more often with UFO researchers.  The important clues in tracing back the activities of Rick Doty and any other individuals involved in the MJ12 scam include following where same philosophy might have showed up prior to making its appearance in the materials passed to Pratt, Moore, Howe, and so many other researchers after 1979/1980.

2005 – Bruce Maccabee Releases Hawk Tales

Hawk Tales , a 2005 article written by Bruce Maccabee, was described by Bruce himself as a "supplement" to Robert Collins’ 2005 book Exempt from Disclosure .   This background document was largely forgotten during the aftermath of Exempt from Disclosure and much of the Serpo-related drama that followed.  However, this intriguing document written by Bruce Maccabee provides a great deal of hidden treasures.  In it, Maccabbee writes:

“This article presents a book’s worth of information that was left out of the book , information that provides a historical foundation for Collins’ investigation.”

You can often learn more about the items that are left out , than you do from the items found within.

Not only does Maccabee’s Hawk Tales provide a historical foundation – it also shares a great deal of information concerning Collins (and Doty’s) sources.  This article includes references to names and events that took place at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in 1979 and earlier.  Keeping in mind the identities of Moore’s sources of the bogus Aquarius and MJ-12 information (Rick Doty and other individuals who present themselves as "Air Force"), in Maccabbee’s writeup we learn a little more information about those sources, and what went on in the years just before Moore  and other UFO researchers were contacted and fed regurgitated UFO stories and information.

In the introduction, Maccabee writes:

“One of the main sources of information was a Lt. Col. Of the Air Force, herein referred to by his ‘aviary’ code name, ‘Hawk’ (as explained in the book, pg 8).  Hawk retired from the Foreign Technology division (FTD) at Wright Patterson Air Force Base (WPAFB) in 1979, about 4 years before Collins started working there.  Collins learned about Hawk’s interest in the UFO subject from a mutual acquaintance .  Subsequently, Hawk provided valuable information to Collins’ research activities in the latter half of the 1980’s."

Hawk, as most researchers who are familiar with the famed Aviary as defined by Moore now know, is Ernie Kellerstrass. In the article, Macabbee describes some of the information Kellerstrass shared with him in this interview held in 1985 and 1986.  As Maccabee points out in his introduction, this information Kellerstrauss was sharing with him in this interview was only 5 years after the publication of Moore and Berlitz’s book The Roswell Incident .  Even more significantly, it was also a year before the alleged “MJ-12” documents and information would be released to the general public .  Bruce Maccabee had little idea, at the time of these interviews, that a group of “insiders” were also talking to Moore, Pratt, Shandara, Howe, and others about the same exact ideas and during the same time period.  It appears that by 1985, those responsible for spreading those documents were finally out in full force and interfacing with a whole list of Ufologists in an effort to get the "core story" out into the UFO arena.

However, Macabbee’s document in particular, when placed within the context of other events that were taking place at the Foreign Technology Division at Wright AFB during this same exact time period mentioned in the document (1975 through 1979) – reveal striking parallels and lead amazingly close to a revelation regarding the source of this disinformation (MJ12), and possibly the motive.

The Maccabee – Kellerstrass Interview in 1985

The article continues on with a transcript of the conversation Maccabee had with Kellerstrass in 1985.  The conversation goes over a multitude of events and names of sources from many years before this 1985 interview, mostly from the 70’s – and those are the critical points that we want to focus on in order to try to identify where the “core story”, or MJ12 philosophy, first started making an appearance.

I will highlight the critical parts of the series of Maccabee/Kellerstrass conversation here:

Bruce Maccabee In the first part of the interview, Kellerstrass describes his only two eye-witness accounts of UFO’s.  One was witnessing some models of experimental aircraft at Wright AFB that matched stereotypical descriptions of UFO’s (cigar and saucer), as well as witnessing an event where a jet that had been scrambled to intercept a UFO over Japan got shot down.  Other than those two “eye-witness” events – he admits that everything else he "knows" about Aliens and UFO’s were told to him through 1st and/or 2nd hand accounts.

By the third conversation – Kellerstrauss provides the name of one of his central sources, who turns out to be none other than “this one fellow in 1978” – Dale Graff .  The comical part of this interview is that Kellerstrass assumes that Dale Graff didn’t know that Ernie’s "other source" was also in touch with him (Ernie).  He is completely oblivious to the possibility that Graff and the other source could actually not be “independent from the other” at all.  Ernie claims that the matching information from two sources proves it’s true…overlooking the possibility that matching information from two sources could indicate collaboration.

Interview Excerpts:

H – Ernie Kellerstrass, B – Bruce Maccabee

“December 19, 1985

H:    Everything I have relayed (regarding Bob) is from that one visit, what, 1963 or 4, sometime in there.
B:    Yeah, you said 1964.
H:    Yeah, when I was there in ’64. So all I do is relate that plus things that were confirmed by this one fellow (Dale Graff) in 1978 .  So my information is only until 1978 or early ’79, that time frame.  And what it was is that in ’78-79 the conversations were with somebody (Dale) completely independent from the other (Bob. H)…(DG) who did not know that I knew the other information (from Bob.H. ).”

A little further down in the conversation, Graff gets mentioned again, and this time Maccabee, hearing the name for the first time, asks for more specific information about him.

Interestingly, Kellerstrass attempts to brush off the name as “Just a fellow who was in the office.” However, it becomes quite apparent before long that Dale Graff is actually a central source of most of the more sensational parts of the story.  In particular, the parts that we now recognize today (in 2009) as making up much of the core of what exists in the MJ12 documents, and serves as a central philosophy of the documents – as well as the central philosophy for almost all related releases that would eventually come from Rick Doty and his group down the road – including Project Serpo in 2005.

“B:    Oh.  So he probably didn’t need any clearance to tour the FAA facility.
H:    Right,  He didn’t do the other part.  But he took the tour.  It was all planned back then.   Although Dale Graff told me in the spring of ’79 that everything was as I had said.  He told me (what he knew), and then later on I told him what I knew, and he said, “Yes, it’s still there.”
B:    Hmmmm.   And, uh, who is that?
H:    Just a fellow who was in the office.  He’s super, super, super sensitive, but he’s the guy….
B:    A guy who was in the office where you worked?
H:    Yeah, where I worked.  He’s the guy that… We were talking one day and he said “You should have read the book. Then you’d get some really interesting information.”
B:    Oh, yeah.  OK.
disclosure-alien H:    And then he told me about this book (a reference to the “Yellow Book”?).  He said there were about 40 copies but they were all controlled.  I asked if it was possible to see the book and he said “No, it was just sent back six months ago.”
B:    That was in ’79?
H:    That was early ’79.  So that means the book was sent back sometime in ’78, like either 3 or 6 months before.  So, does that match in with the other book?  (I think this is a reference to the Project Aquarius report.)
B:    We don’t really know the….
H:    …..the publication date?
B:    No, we don’t know that.
H:    Well, he (Graff?) told me the publication was either ’76 or ’77.
B:    Oh, yeah.  Right.  That would agree..
H:    It was what he told me at the time.  Anyway, thing that is interesting is that he told me the name of the people, the race, where they were from and a whole bunch of other little things.  And when RC was talking the other day about a report he had, and he didn’t tell me much about it because told him I didn’t want to know, uh, it turned out that ¾ of what he said was the same .  And the other guy (Dale Graff, referred to herein as DG) said he had read the book.  He said it was about a 100 page book.  In fact, he said it was over that.  He said it was about…let me get back my memory…he said it was a couple if inches thick, hard bound.  Now the thing that is interesting is that he said Dr. Cacciopo (referred to herein as Dr. C ) got the book.  It was sent to him.
B:    Who is that?
H:    He’s the Chief Scientist.  (Dr. Anthony Cacciopo, at that time Chief Scientist at FTD, herein called “C”.)”
B:    Uh, huh!   (Note:  Collins knew Dr. C but had not yet approached him on this subject.)
H:    And, when I talked about the committee meeting, or what have you, (i.e., the committee in charge of UFO/AFC research mentioned above as meeting in a lodge at the northern edge of Albuquerque near the tramway; MJ-12?),  he (DG) said he had accompanied him (Dr. C) out there to these meetings.
B:    This guy you are talking about DG had accompanied Dr. C….?
H:    Dr. C.  And he said Dr. C had attended these meetings.  So what that tells me is, I suspect that Dr. C is a member or a chief advisor to the committee.  Because that is the only way DG knew all of that information that matched with what I had known. "

The next segment of the conversation outlines more of the details which we’ve finally come to recognize.  But the important part of this statement is that the information was coming from Dale Graff in 1979 – around the same time Doty was starting to build up his own activity within Ufology (upcoming reports will detail that activity), as well as the year (1979) when Bruce Maccabee started interfacing with CIA (Kit Green), and it was also the year Bruce noticed that there was an "intersection" between the parapsychology research and Ufology.

The interview as published in Hawk Tales is quite long, but any researcher interested in the history of the MJ12 releases and the source of those documents should carefully read through this interview.  The discussions are too long to outline here, but the following important points were raised in the remainder of the interview.  According to Ernie Kellerstrass:

  • Dr. Dr. Anthony Cacciopo allegedly let Dale Graff read "the book" in 1978, and Dale told Ernie in 1979 what was in the book.
  • The Air Force had 5 (types of) aliens, and "some live ones," and were hiding one
  • Provided early history from 10,000 years ago up to the time of Christ
  • The planet they came from had a double sun
  • Dale Graff and Dr. Cacciopo went to Davis-Monthan AFB to a "major meeting on UFOs"
  • An "OSI fellow" took Dale and two other Army folks Southwest of the AFB to a vault where they "had ’em (aliens) in pictures and they had ’em in tanks"
  • The U.S. had bodies or parts of bodies of three of the five types of aliens
  • An "Arizona group" consisting of 3 males, 2 females (captured in Utah) were originally alive
  • Alien bodies had no nose, round mouth, no ears, no hair, elliptical eyes, and looked like stereotypical alien
  • They (aliens) were vegetarians (based on food found in a tray in the craft)
  • Everyone called the aliens EBE1, EBE2, etc…

Dale Graff

Allegedly Dale Graff described "the book" to Ernie as being about two inches thick, with just under 40 copies available, brown in color and "coded."  Ernie continues to describe his conversations with Dale Graff during the late 1970’s as follows:

"Every once in a while we’d talk at the end of the day and he used to like to talk about the whole paranormal field and all the exotics.  I won’t elaborate but we use to talk for hours on end;  Out of body experiences and all that sort of thing, and he knows that I’ve had some of those experiences ever since I was little and tiny.  So, he used to feel real comfortable talking with me.  And every once in a while he would bring out these oddities related to UFOs.  And he brought out both of those incidents (B52 and trip to Arizona base).  He didn’t elaborate much on them other than that they occurred and the essence of them."

The above interview, if we are to assume that Kellerstrass is passing on an honest version of stories that he was allegedly told, reveals that Dale Graff, as early as 1978, was privately discussing the same exact themes and ideas (the “Philosophy”) that would eventually make its way into the early 80’s versions of the MJ-12 documents, and eventually, Project Serpo.  In 1978, we have Dale Graff discussing:

(1)    A secret book containing information about “EBE”, multiple alien races
(2)    Early history from 10,000 years ago to the time of Christ
(3)    Captured Alien Craft and Bodies/Prisoners
(4)    Aliens as vegetarians
(5)    Their star-system having a double-star, or double-sun.

Other than discussing Aliens with Kellerstraus back in 1978, as outlined in our last article , Dale Graff was acting as a civilian physicist with the Air Force FTD division, and had given a small contract to the SRI research team in order to test the Soviet hypothesis that psi was transmitted via ELF (extremely low frequency) electromagnetic waves.

As outlined in our previous articles, 1978-1979 was clearly a very important year in Remote Viewing research for many reasons.  Additional events of note that took place within this time frame included:

  • DIA took over funding and tasking for the government’s overall RV research.
  • Kit Green began communicating with Maccabee for as much UFO information as possible.
  • Maccabee recognizes this date as signifying the sudden interested of the “RV” folks in the field of ufology.
  • Dale Graff, scientist with Air Force FTD RV program, has been working closely with SRI (Hal Puthoff) on a secret  RV project since 1975.
  • Dale Graff and Dr. Anthony Cacciopo were both involved in the AF Blue Book investigations that took place at Wright AFB.

All of the information listed above, which was supposedly being discussed privately as early as 1978, examined within the context of everything else going on during the same time period, suggests a significant series of events and the beginning of a "movement," which would eventually involve a number of prominent UFO researchers, and turn into one of the longest-running and most significant UFO hoaxes of all time.

Ingo SwannIn the interview quoted in this article, Bruce Maccabee is quoted as follows:

“These guys who didn’t believe in UFOs, but did believe strongly in metal bending, psychokinesis, remote viewing and all that mind research, were suddenly confronted with the UFO problem right in their face. [snip] ….When I talked with Kit Green in 1979, he was aware of all this, too, but he wouldn’t tell me anything.  He would only suck up information from me regarding the UFO aspect.  But there was this intersection point where psychics started zeroing in on UFOs and the people in the paranormal side were saying, ‘This can’t be. UFO’s aren’t real.’  So they had to start investigating what was going on in the UFO community.”

This quote begs the question, what was Bruce referring to about UFOs?  Later in the interview he mentions how Ingo Swann remote viewed a UFO behind a submarine.

In Ingo’s Own Words

On his website, www.biomindsuperpowers.com, Ingo Swann discussed that incident, which allegedly occurred between 1975 and 1976 when he was asked to remote view Soviet submarines.  Apparently this was an important test related to continued funding of SRI.

“This was one of those ‘big test’ things that went on with witnesses,” he wrote. “The room was filled with top brass.  I said, ‘Hal, I don’t know what to do.  I think this submarine has shot down by a UFO or the UFO fired on her.  What shall I do?’

And Puthoff went pale.  He looked at me and whispered, ‘I don’t know, it’s your show.  You do what you should do.’  So I sketched a picture of a UFO, and this two or three-star general sitting on my right grabbed it and said, ‘What’s that, Mr. Swann?’ I said ‘Sir, I think it’s rather obvious what that is.’

And he took the paper and stood up, and when he stood up, everyone else left.  So Puthoff and I went back to the hotel and I said, ‘Oh, Christ, we’ve blown the program.’

So we went out and got drunk.

Three days later, Puthoff got a call.

The caller said, ‘Okay, how much money do you want.’”

The Ingo Swann UFO Viewing From Another Source

While this account, from Ingo, is certainly intriguing – other accounts differ, and offer much less significance to the drawn UFO.  According to Lyn Buchanan, the session went more like this:

“One time, at one meeting, while Ingo Swan was tracking a submarine he just happened to mention that there was a UFO overhead.  Everyone around the table laughed, and Swan was told:

‘OK, well, track it for us to tell us what is doing’, and then they send the word out about it with request to have the radar readings.  They never got feedback on that.

The real purpose for that meeting was to see if they were going to get funded for another year.  Immediately after their request got out they got funded.”

As you can see here – the importance or significance of the UFO comments were mostly in the minds of the two guys who were trying to obtain funding (Puthoff and Swann).  There was no direct correlation between the continued funding and the fact that Ingo mentioned a UFO – however these two men drew that correlations based on very loose and circumstantial events.   What we can extract from all versions of the event was not that the U.S. Government attached importance or significance to the erroneous UFO drawing – but that the men running the Remote Viewing program certainly did.

By 1979, a key year where tasking and funding for Remote Viewing research was transitioned to the DIA and widened in scope – Kit Green also met with Maccabee in 1979, as discussed on the main RU website (RU article link), regarding the New Zealand sightings.  It’s clear that Kit and Hal likely were aware at this point of an odd correlation between remote viewing and UFOs.  Coincidentally, the following year, events in the world of UFOlogy, a field that had largely forgotten about Roswell, suddenly took an unexpected and wild turn.

Bruce Maccabee Glimpses Behind the Curtain


Bruce Maccabee

Weird and wild things have certainly been going on in the skies and space around the planet earth.  Throughout the history of the human race, strange celestial events have captured and mesmerized the beings called Earthlings who live on this little blue marble, hurtling through space.

These sightings are nothing new.  In fact, you can find reference to odd sightings in the sky all the way back to earliest recorded history.  For America, there was some fascination regarding objects in the sky with the foo-fighters that American pilots spotted over the skies of Germany throughout the 1940s.  As military aircraft advanced and more classified flight testing started taking place over the skies of America, an entire subculture started to form – filled with enthusiasts, hobbyists, sky-watchers and researchers who were mesmerized by the odd crafts and other objects occasionally spotted in the skies above them.

Ufologists have written volumes on the activities of the Air Force throughout the 1950s and beyond, with the opening and closing of Project Blue Book, the controversy of the Condon Report, and the many other insanities and confusion that litters Ufological history like battered bodies on a battlefield.  In many ways, it was a virtual war between civilian researchers who wanted answers, and a military that refused to talk about the subject – or when it did, answers were unsatisfactory, patronizing, and at times ridiculous.

In this update, we will focus on one particular soldier, of sorts, and one specific battle within a much larger and broad Ufology war.  This small skirmish provides tremendous clues regarding what came next, and subsequent events over the remaining 30+ years.

Regular UFO Private Gets a Promotion

For those who don’t know Bruce Maccabee, or his background within Ufology, click this link for a brief overview.  During the particular moment in time examined in this article, Bruce Maccabee was hard at work investigating one of the latest breaking reports of UFO sightings in New Zealand.

New Zealand 1978 UFO

New Zealand 1978 UFO

These UFO sightings were no different than many others before or after, except for the fact that so much was captured on videotape, because an actual news crew was present for the sighting.  According to Maccabee’s report on the sighting, reporter Quentin Fogarty, from a TV station in Melbourne, Australia, was traveling with his film crew to obtain some news story film footage about a previous sighting from just two weeks earlier – just off the coast of New Zealand.

Ironically, the most amazing footage of a UFO sighting came from a film crew that had the intention to learn more about the previous sighting – they never thought they would see anything spectacular themselves.

The three-man news team spotted the strange object with flashing lights around 2:45 and 2:55 in the morning, while on the airplane headed toward New Zealand.  The pilot and copilot were also witness to the strange craft.  Additionally, the Wellington Air Traffic Control radar captured and recorded the radar target where the visual sighting took place.  Geoffrey Causer was the air traffic controller who witnessed the radar detection.

Upon landing – these second sightings went public on the Australian TV station, and hit the news media worldwide.  In 1979, Bruce Maccabee traveled to New Zealand to investigate.  Upon returning, Maccabee used his Navy contacts to obtain audience with the CIA.

According to the “Associated Investigators Group,” their report regarding Maccabee’s activities during that time states:

“Maccabee first approached the CIA in early 1979 after traveling to New Zealand to investigate the filming of an alleged ‘UFO’ from a plane by a television crew. Although most people who viewed the film were unimpressed by the jumpy blob of nocturnal light, Maccabee for unclear reasons decided the film represented some sort of probative evidence of UFOs and set out to bring it to the attention of CIA officials. He then put out feelers through his contacts with companies performing tasks for the CIA, and later a meeting was set up at CIA Headquarters, during which he screened the film and summarized his analysis of it.”

Bruce Maccabee and Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green Meet for the First Time

It was at that meeting, in 1979, where Maccabee provided a full briefing for the CIA regarding the strange lights, that Maccabee reported Dr. Kit Green pulled him aside after the video and introduced himself as the custodian of the CIA’s UFO files.

With a tendency to make exaggerated, sweeping statements without additional explanation, Dr. Green told Bruce that those files consisted of about 15,000 UFO related documents, of which “only two or three thousand were really interesting.”  This off-the-cuff comment would come back to bite Dr. Green, as the CIA Freedom of Information Staff were busy responding to a FOIA suit that researcher Tod Zechel of the CAUS had filed.  CAUS researchers, after hearing about this comment from Bruce, were furious that Dr. Green hadn’t provided all of the “15,000” UFO documents.  The fact that any documents, at all, were lacking angered researchers who suspected the CIA was trying to “cover up” UFO secrets.

In 2006, Dr. Green reported to Reality Uncovered researchers that the majority of the documents were nothing more than garbage – like newspaper or magazine clippings some UFO nut had sent in as a “UFO report.”  In other cases they were useless data from the Foreign Broadcast Services.

Ufology Integrates with Parapsychology

Bruce MaccabeeIn an interview published in the article “The UFO/FBI Connection,” Maccabee makes reference to this meeting with Kit Green, in 1979, when he states, “…what it amounted to was that I gave them a lot of information and they gave me nothing.”

Later in the above interview, Maccabee makes note of the odd correlation that was taking place within the community of government researchers and scientists who were following various paranormal phenomenon when he comments on their strange overlapping interests into the UFO phenomenon and parapsychology.

“The Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) was also involved in funding remote viewing.  There was an intersection between remote viewing and UFO’s…  [snip] …And Ingo drew a UFO behind a submarine in one of his remote viewings.  That’s the kind of intersection I’m talking about.”

Click here for more information about Ingo’s drawing of a UFO.

Since 1995, the American Public has been aware of the remote viewing research where the government contracted out parapsychology research at SRI, directed by Hal Puthoff.  As reported here, in 1979, the CIA was already neck deep in “weird” research regarding parapsychology.  According to Maccabee, the potential reality of psychic functioning was triggering a domino effect throughout government research communities who were already developing a belief in metal bending, psychokinesis, and remote viewing.  Maccabee continues:

“When I talked with Kit Green in 1979, he was aware of all this, too, but he wouldn’t tell me anything.  He would only suck up information from me regarding the UFO aspect.  But there was this intersection point where psychics started zeroing in on UFOs and the people in the paranormal side were saying, ‘This can’t be. UFO’s aren’t real.’  So they had to start investigating what was going on in the UFO community.”

The Ripple Effect Among “Believer” Government Scientists

Up until 1979, Kit Green was one of the CIA officials tasked with monitoring and reporting on SRI remote viewing research.  By this point, Hal Puthoff and Kit Green were not only colleagues in research, but were already friends.  This was also the year that tasking and funding for Remote Viewing research transitioned to the DIA and widened in scope as one source (among many) of “intelligence data collection.”

However, what Maccabee’s experience in dealing with the CIA during this time tells us is that the folks who were already interested in parapsychology at this time, were suddenly turning toward Ufology as an additional subject of research and study.

It’s important to note that, up until this point, Roswell was very low on the scale of interest for UFO researchers.  Many people interested in the UFO sightings of the time, had little interest in events that took place at Roswell many years before.

CIA Reviews The New MJ-12 Revelations

MJ12 DocumentBefore leaving the subject of Bruce Maccabee, there is one minor additional issue to note.  According to the AIG report on Maccabee’s CIA interactions, Maccabee admitted that, in the mid 1980’s, he attended one “standing room only” meeting in a CIA conference room in which he was asked to brief CIA personnel on the “MJ-12” group that was detailed in the documents revealed by researcher and author William “Bill” Moore.

According to the AIG report, Maccabee admitted that after the conference, Ron Pandolfi, the CIA official who had replaced Kit Green at the agency, told Maccabee that the MJ-12 briefing triggered an aftermath of CIA officers snooping on each other to determine whether any of the current staff were members of the “fabled UFO control group.”

Of note here is the fact that the topic of discussion for Ufologists, in 1979, were UFO sightings and researching the source of these odd objects in the skies.  Subsequent to 1979, and throughout the next three decades, documents started getting “leaked” that outlined a conspiracy and a core story, the likes of which no Ufologist could have ever predicted or expected.

Since then, many of those documents have been revealed as obvious hoaxes, including by the FBI.  More recent attempts, as late as 2005, to distribute the same story via email and by website in the form of the “Serpo” story, were also exposed as coming from Rick Doty, the same person exposed earlier as the distributor many of the earlier MJ-12 documents.  Regardless of the fact that some MJ-12 documents have been discredited as hoaxed, many Ufologists continue to believe that there’s at least an ounce of truth buried in those documents.

The difference in the 2005 case, however, is that this time Dr. Christopher Green and Harold Puthoff were clearly proven as being closely involved with the individuals who were releasing that story to the public.  Bob Collins book “Exempt From Disclosure,” also reveals their involvement during the 1980’s distribution of the MJ-12 documents.  Statements from Ron Pandolfi also confirm that involvement throughout the 80’s and today.

Upcoming reports will outline the nature and process of those releases starting in the late 1970s, as well as the purpose and meaning behind what is now known as the “Core Story.”

Rotten to the Core


The Core Story at its most basic level is about the “reality” of alien contact. The reality behind the Core Story however, is very different.

The Core Story was created by a small group of people, intent on perpetuating a belief in the alien contact myth in order to achieve their own, distinctly human, objectives.

This small group have used their previous employment by various government and military agencies to cement and enhance their standing within the so-called believer crowd. This larger group have done an excellent job in further spreading the myth, passing along stories and tales that they believe have come from those “in the know”.

Once the idea of the Core Story was planted, it was a fairly simple task for those within the small group to identify and target those people within the believer crowd whose pockets were deeper than most. Selling the promise of exotic alien technology or providing “proof” for those desperate for confirmation of the astounding is much more lucrative than you might think. Much, much more.

All of the above facts will be expanded upon in great detail over the coming days and weeks. The What, Who, How and Why will become very clear as we publish our evidence with each new update. Stay tuned!

Alleged Purchase of Classified Documents Sparks Investigation


Recent reports to a U.S. Government official regarding the alleged sale of classified documents, has sparked an investigation into the individuals behind both the solicitation of the buyer, and whether the documents involved are actually authentic government documents.

In early November, Bob Collins, a retired Air Force intelligence officer formerly with the Foreign Technology Division and author of the book Exempt from Disclosure, published a statement in response to questions about an allegedly classified document from his book entitled “Adam and Eve Report”. In his online comments he wrote:

“It wasn’t Officially Declassified anymore than other material I have here. No government agency would acknowledge any of it, the same for the DIA docs. I paid Rick for his services so the material belongs to me…..Rmc”

Several sources who were part of the email discussions report that Collins further stated that the “Adam & Eve” information came from Richard C. Doty’s sources in 1999 when they had allegedly received payment from millionaire and philanthropist Joe Firmage in exchange for still-classified documents.

According to the government source familiar with the investigation, Richard Doty told Bob Collins that his sources were LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory) employees, however would not provide those names. The source indicated that a preliminary investigation revealed that there were no such documents, and there were no reports of any security breach at the National Lab in or around 1999, and there were no such documents related to any past security breaches.

If true, and depending on the nature of, and intended use of this information, this activity could represent a form of espionage. Espionage, in the United States, is classified as “The act of obtaining, delivering, transmitting, communicating, or receiving information about the national defense with an intent, or reason to believe, that the information may be used to the injury of the United States or to the advantage of any foreign nation. Espionage is a violation of 18 United States Code 792-798 and Article 106, Uniform Code of Military Justice[1].”

Several members of the forum and individuals copied on private email exchanges reported these statements to a U.S. Official within the Intelligence community, in a position to investigate.

This official initiated an investigation into these complaints, and conducted preliminary interviews with Richard C. Doty and Robert Collins prior to passing the complaints on to CI (Counter-Intelligence) Staff. It is uncertain at this point whether a formal report has yet been submitted to the Justice Department for further investigation.

In a similar case in 1995, John Douglas Charlton, a retired Lockheed Corporation engineer, was arrested for attempting to sell secret documents removed from the company when he retired. These documents concerned Sea Shadow, a Navy stealth project and the Captor Project related to mines that could release anti-sub torpedoes. According to the espionage indictment, Charlton tried to sell the information to an FBI agent posing as a foreign government representative.

“Hill, an Air Force veteran, was paid $25,000 for files from November 1999 until last week, according to a six-page complaint filed in U.S. District Court in New York. He was arrested Friday in Las Vegas after allegedly faxing classified information drawn from computer files to an FBI informant in New York.”

If the Adam & Eve documents have any sort of classified information, as implied by those who’ve released them – Rick Doty, or whoever else took part in the financial exchange, can face up to 15 to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine if convicted.

If the documents are fake or fabricated – it is likely the investigation will simply be dropped.

Nothing Lasts Forever – Update


The following summary uncovers the motive behind the UFOlogy scam as operated by the Imaginary Intelligence Agency (IIA) outlined in our previously published “Nothing Lasts Forever” article.

“Imaginary Intelligence Agency” is a Fairly Unique Name Designating an Illicit Networking Group, or “FUNDING” for short.

This group of individuals have managed to create an illusion so great and vast in scope that millions of people now believe that Earth is being visited by highly advanced Extra Terrestrial life forms. We are also led to believe that these same highly advanced life forms crashed as soon as they arrived, leaving us with a legacy of reverse engineered anti-gravity drives, zero point energy devices, stealth technology and a concise history of the Universe stored on a hologram.

Why would this group want to create such an illusion in the first place you might ask? There are a large number of possible motives for such an endeavour. Disinformation and Counter Intelligence operations are just two hypotheses that have been cited for many of the strange stories in the public domain. While it is certainly true that various bona fide Intelligence agencies have conducted UFO-related activities of this nature in the past, one has to look elsewhere for the real reason this particular so-called “Core Story” continues to constantly re-emerge with newer and stranger additions.

As with nearly all such stories that end up being nothing more than faked tales of fiction, the common denominator linking them all together is financial gain – and that is no different in this case. We are not talking about book sales or the lecture circuit. The financial gain referred to here goes much deeper and involves many wealthy individuals who have been manipulated to part with staggeringly vast amounts of their money in order to fund “investigation and research” into those fringe areas of science which have greatly benefitted from – and in some cases depend upon – the very existence of those fictional crashed flying saucer stories in the first place.

Our -almost finished- report will name the people behind this long running scam and show in great detail how easily they managed to hoodwink the entire UFO community so successfully and for so long.

Nothing Lasts Forever


We’ve all heard of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA), along with a myriad of other, acronym rich organisations tasked mostly with the job of keeping tabs on the bad guys.

I think it’s a safe bet to assume that none of you have ever heard of the “Imaginary Intelligence Agency”.

The IIA are so secretive, and so adept at maintaining that secrecy, that not even the operatives and field agents under its command know of its existence! This particular agency is run, like all others, on a strictly need-to-know basis, with the IIA’s “Director” deciding only he has that right to know. It may sound like a strange setup, but the agency has been running operations successfully for over three decades now – all completely undetected.

The unwitting agents of the IIA are collectively responsible for completely changing the face of modern UFOlogy. A central meme exists today that has absolutely no basis in reality, yet is accepted as fact by millions around the world. The director of the IIA has successfully hoodwinked not only the average person in the street, but he has also conned those agents working for him into thinking they are carrying out highly important and officially sanctioned work.

Our impending report will, amongst other things;

• Name the man behind the curtain
• Conclusively show how the deception was achieved and maintained
• Explain the purpose of the central meme
• Name the fictional support stories
• Provide a list of agent’s names

We already know what to expect from those that do not want to see the truth revealed. It started a week ago and is beginning to gather a small head of steam. So expect to see many ludicrous and untrue statements about us made in the coming days. Anyone in their right mind will see that exactly for what it is. Distraction.

Full report to follow.
