John Alexander – Mr. Non-Lethal With Many Hands in Many Pots

John B. Alexander. Who is this man? Many people have heard of him in different capacities and within different contexts. Some are aware of his technical work in the field of non-lethal weapons – in fact, he is a man who has been deeply involved within the military-industrial complex for many years. Other people know of him from his very early days in the U.S. Army from 1956 through 1988, when he finally retired as a Colonel.

The man is no slouch – having served time in Vietnam leading Special Forces teams. After the war was over, he worked his way up through the ranks until his last position as the Director at the Advanced systems Concepts Office under General Stubblebine.

As many people know, the Ufologist who was the original victim (or collaborator) of an elaborate effort to distribute MJ-12 documents upon the Ufology community was Bill Moore. Bill Moore eventually reported the names of all of his contacts during those MJ-12 years (1980s) in the form of his “Aviary” list of contacts. John Alexander was one of those contacts.

Coincidentially, John Alexander’s retirement from military/government work and his entry into private research at Los Alamos National Laboratory somewhat coincided with Hal Puthoff’s 1985 retirement from his Remote Viewing government contract and entry into private research at his privately owned research institute in Texas. Hal was also a member of Moore’s “Aviary” list of contacts. Coincidentally, Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green also retired from full time government work (CIA) in 1985 to enter into private industry as well, doing neuroscience work for General Motors.

At Los Alamos, Alexander began his work on Non-Lethal Defense technologies. Like Kit Green, he maintained contractual connections with government agencies, attended conferences and conducted briefings or talks for various U.S. Government and Intelligence organizations as well as collaborating and heading up various research endeavors with organizations throughout Industry and Academia. His non-lethal technology work is very public. He has wrtten articles in The Boston Globe and the Washington Post, and his work has been featured in publications like Scientific American, Wired and TV programs like CNN and Dateline. Now that you have an idea of the man’s public life, it’s time to dig deeper and explore into the man’s private endeavors that many people in the general public don’t know a whole lot about.

Dumpster Diving into Ufology

Like Kit Green and Hal Puthoff, John Alexander was listed by Bill Moore and others as a “U.S. Intelligence Contact” throughout the mid and late 1980s. Coincidentally, the public release of MJ-12 perfectly coincided with the military/government retirements of these men. What other evidence is there regarding the specifics of Alexander’s involvement with Ufologists during the mid to late 1980’s?

Once again, Bob Collin’s book Exempt from Disclosure leaks more information into the public domain that was previously hidden in secrecy, or at least obscurity. Also like Hal, Kit and most of Moore’s other contacts, Alexander has a direct connection to the parapsychology research that was ongoing within the military at the time. In particular, John Alexander worked under General Albert “Bert” Stubblebine III within INSCOM – looking for ways to improve the psychic performance of the military remote viewers.

In fact, according to “Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies”, by Jim Schnabel, Stubblebine signed contracts with the Monroe Institute to test various hypnosis techniques to enhance remote viewer’s performance.

The Turning Point – When Paranormal Research Results in Disaster


John Alexander (Los Alamos), Gordon Novel, and John's wife Victoria


In 1984, General Stubblebine sent an officer to the Monroe Institute for another “RV enhancement” test. According to one of our sources, the technique that the Monroe institute applied to this particular officer was one where all stimuli was removed from the environment. Clothes, lights or sounds were all removed, leaving the officer stark naked in a pitch-black room. The event led to the officer having a psychotic breakdown, and finally Stubblebine’s “retirement” in 1984.

We’re talking about a man, now featured in the major motion film “The Men Who Stare at Goats” as repeatedly attempting to walk through a wall, only to collide with it. We confirmed with several sources that this really took place.

What does all of this have to do with Ufology? Well, psychic phenomenon was not all Stubblebine or Alexander were interested in. In 1991, years after his retirement, Stubblebine, C.B. Scott Jones, and two Ufologists Victoria Lacas and Rima Laibow (who later became his second wife), traveled throughout Europe and the Soviet Union conducting research (and making contacts) into UFO and Psychic phenomenon there. Later, Stubblebine and his new wife Rima held “spoon-bending” parties for their elite friends and colleagues.

How much was Alexander involved with Stubblebine and C.B. Scott Jones in all of this research? Well, Victoria Lacas is now Victoria Alexander – John’s wife. Read Victoria’s comments about the film “The Men Who Stare at Goats.” In the 1990’s, John went on to work part-time for Bigelow-funded National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS), alongside the usual fringe-research folks – Hal Puthoff, Kit Green, Kolm Kelleher and others.

And for those of you who thought Gordon Novel only recently popped up on the Ufology radar in recent years with his strange “RAM” project – take another good, long look at the photo above.

John Alexander and Ufology

On Page 8 of Exempt from Disclosure, under a section titled “Summits without the cocktails, the fall of 1986,” Collins writes:

“Ernie Kellerstrass had Bill Moore, Jaime Shandera, Hal Puthoff, Col. John Alexander (author of the book, Future War), Scott Jones (assistant for Senator Pell), and I over to his house in Beavercreek, OH (suburb of Dayton OH) for dinner. All of our meetings were very somber with most of us lookin glike stiffs right out of an “X-Files” show.”

At the time, Alexander was not yet retired, and still actively working on classified remote viewing work while taking part in these private UFO meetings. Given the ongoing activities, up to 2005 and beyond, of many of the individuals listed in this paragraph by Collins, we thought that it is very likely John Alexander is also still involved and active as well.

So, we decided to go straight to the horse’s mouth and ask John Alexander directly about these matters. His responses were interesting. The interesting part was more in what he chose not to answer, rather than what he answered.

The John Alexander Interview

Ryan: On Page 8 of Exempt from Disclosure, Collins writes: “[pasted quote above]” – Could you describe why you agreed to take part in this “summit without the cocktails” in 1986, with personalities like Kellerstrass and Ufologists Bill Moore and Jaime Shandera?

John: Don’t understand the question or context. Did meet him once. Certainly no summit.

Ryan: The context was a meeting in 1986 at Ernie Kellerstrass’ house in Beavercreek, Ohio – apparently to discuss some of Ernie’s stories related to UFOs. Again – could you describe why you agreed to meet with Ernie to discuss the topic? Did a friend invite you, or did Ernie himself?

John: Not sure – that was over 20 years ago and not of a great deal of importance.

Ryan: I know that you were involved (are involved) with non-lethal research, and back then it was just about a year or so from your military retirement and entry into private research. Your interest and involvement in the PSI field is well-documented (such as in your book and in the movie) – but I’m trying to understand why you were interested in UFOs and if there was some connection to your PSI work?

John: Am interested in many areas.

Ryan: On page 9, Collins describes a cloak and dagger operation where the members of the group he just outlined all traveled individually to meet with Executive Producer Seligman (the person who eventually produced “Cover Up Live” featuring Collins and Doty) in Dayton, OH at a secluded State Park. Did you take part in this operation to brief Seligman, and if so, why were you specifically involved and what did information did you plan to share with the Executive Producer?

John: No.

Ryan: On page 11, Collins describes yet another meeting in September of 1988 where everyone met in Albuquerque, NM to conduct interviews for the 1988 UFO show. Were you specifically interviewed by the producers of that show either at the Albuquerque interviews or at any other time or place? If so, can you share what information you provided to the producers and why?

John: No.

Ryan: Throughout the years, Collins consistently refers to a secret “Los Alamos” source who discusses UFO/Alien matters with him. Are you that source, and why?

John: No.

Ryan: On November 3rd, 2009, your wife, Victoria Alexander, wrote a review for the movie “The Men who Stare at Goats.” In that review she writes: “John was formerly with the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) under Major General Albert Stubblebine.” We’ve learned that previous to Bert’s retirement, the last incident that led to his departure was related to a case at the Monroe Institute where he subjected an officer to a particular treatment meant to increase psychic ability (we were told it was the removal of all stimuli) which drove the officer into a psychotic state.

Were these events taking place while you were working for Stubblebine – and can you share more details about the event and how it impacted your own personal beliefs and research related to PSI effects?

John: Yes, Pat was not wound too tight to begin with. TMI was a step too far for him, and he had missed the examination process that all of the other attendees went through. He recovered just fine. Bert didn’t, but that’s another story. Recommend you read The Warrior’s Edge. Most of the stuff I wrote in that book.

Final Words

I admit – the interview felt like it was a bit “lacking” in substance or openness. John was evasive and ignored a number of the questions – in a few cases the most important ones. John ignored the importance of that 1986 meeting that Collins described as involving the group of people Moore eventually identified as his list of contacts throughout the MJ-12 affair. The fact that Alexander was on that list, and here he was meeting with other folks related to the topic of UFOs, is very likely not lost on our more discerning readers.

In short, based upon a close review of his history, associates and which pots his hands are in, in combination with his brisk and evasive answers – I have to conclude that John Alexander is far more involved in these particular Ufology matters than he would like people to know about. I am now even more suspicious than ever before that John was one of the integral players in the distribution effort of the MJ-12 memes upon the public domain, starting in the 1980’s and continuing throughout the next several decades to today.

In time, through interviewing additional players, digging further into the background activities and events, and uncovering more about the interactions among the various players – we will be able to definitively prove or disprove that suspicion.

The Ernie Kellerstrauss UFO and MJ12 Drama


wpafbHave you heard of the Kellerstrauss UFO story yet? When most people think of the MJ12 documents, they think of Bill Moore, Jamie Shandera, Rick Doty and the other characters circulated throughout the Internet in the form of Ufology urban legends and of course the Aviary mythology. Surprisingly, despite countless examples revealing why the documents are fraudulent – one example Steve described in detail in an earlier article on the Truman signature, the MJ-12 cult led by Dr. Robert Wood and Ryan Wood forges ahead with their close minded and steadfast belief in the authenticity of the documents.

Where Does the Kellerstrauss UFO Connection Fit In?

So you might be wondering about Ernie Kellerstrass and the Kellerstrauss UFO link. Robert Collins was actually the first person to publicly name Ernie Kellerstrauss in his UFO book Exempt from Disclosure. So, the name is not yet high on the radar for many Ufologists, and the majority of researchers haven’t made many of the connections between what Collins allowed to slip out in his book, and the events that went on from the 1970s through today.

We first brought some of those connections to light in the RU article Bruce Maccabee Interviews Ernie “Hawk” Kellerstrass. In 2005, Maccabee released the content of a series of interviews that took place from 1985 through 1986 between himself and Ernie Kellerstrass. In those interviews, which took place before the public release of the MJ12 documents, Ernie described the following topics to Bruce.

(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.

Now, Ernie made reference to this information as coming from Dale Graff. At the time of the alleged Dale Graff/Ernie Kellerstrass conversations, 1979, Dale Graff was actively involved in a Top Secret government project that is now publicly revealed – the government’s remote viewing research. Ernie was Dale’s acting Supervisor at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. This is a strange coincidence considering the number of former remote viewing characters who became involved and events that took place after the 1985 Maccabee interview.

Regardless who came up with the information, Ernie or Dale, the fact is that Ernie publicly revealed this information almost the same exact year that shadowy characters started forcing the public distribution of the MJ12 documents upon the Ufology community.

Amazingly, the MJ12 documents contained the exact same topics that Ernie had previously discussed in his interview with Bruce Maccabee.

So What Does It All Mean?

Is there even any Ernie Kellerstrauss UFO connection to the government at all, or are these memes simply the fabrication of one or two delusional minds? Did they see things during their work on Top Secret projects that they misinterpreted and later analyzed as relating to Aliens? Or were the projects actually related to the study of aliens and UFO’s?

In another previous article, we mentioned how Ingo Swann once allegedly remote viewed a UFO (according to the old remote viewing urban legends). Could these fabricated documents have been related to similar RV sessions? Or were the MJ12 docs an attempt by a group of believers to extract a reaction from a government that they believed was covering up inside information relating to UFOs.

If anyone is familiar with the closing of Project Blue Book – there were a lot of angry folks that felt the project shut-down was premature and unwarranted. Were there enough angry individuals to form a new group that would go on the offensive against a government they believed was attempting to keep the truth from the public?

There are a few things that are now known for certain regarding the origins of the MJ12 documents, and the origins of the “Aviary” group in those initial years of the 1980s. We know that many of Ernie Kellerstrass’ UFO ideas, were part of a discussion of these matters between himself and Dale Graff in the late 1970s, long before the ideas ever went public. We also know that an initiative built up steam from the mid-1970s through the mid 1980s to mount some kind of operation either against Ufology, against the U.S. government, or both.

Furthermore, we know that this group, while they are dispersed throughout the country and each have different UFO/Alien beliefs of their own that extend beyond the Kellerstrauss UFO theories, and the members of that group still maintain their collective efforts to distribute this material, at least as late as 2005.

There are patterns and connections now floating throughout the public domain relating to the motives and activities of this group. Bob Collins book was an attempt by a believer to disclose the reality about Aliens and UFOs, however the true reality is that it served as a massive security breach in the secrecy and privacy this private group has enjoyed for many decades.

The Bad Shepherd


The Bad Shepherd

James Jesus Angleton is widely known as the long-serving Associate Deputy Director of Operations for Counter-Intelligence at the CIA. The 2006 spy movie “The Good Shepherd” was loosely based on his career as the agency’s premier spy catcher, as were several other films and novels, most notably the 2007 three-part miniseries “The Company” starring Michael Keaton.

Nicknamed “Kingfisher”, James Jesus Angleton was forced to resign from the CIA in 1975 after nearly twenty-five years service[1]. He died fourteen years later in 1987, aged 69.

What is not so widely known is that certain authors have used James Jesus Angleton’s name to bolster claims of a huge government cover-up regarding crashed flying saucers and a super secret government cabal known as Majestic-12.

One such writer is Captain Robert “Bob” Collins, co-author of the self-published book Exempt from Disclosure,[2] first released in 2005.  In the book, Collins claims that he has been in regular contact with the Miami grandson of James Jesus Angleton, who provided him with many of his grandfather’s personal notes that were allegedly taken during classified CIA briefings.

“James Angleton Jr., Miami, FL, has been providing us with much needed support over the last few years.  Many of the conversations have centered on his grandfather’s personal notes which number in the thousands of pages according to Jim.[3]

Tim Cooper further reinforced the source of these notes from a 45-minute phone conversation with Angleton Jr. in March 2000.

“He is holding his granddad’s papers, which his father gave him for safekeeping and some Dulles files which Angleton took from CIA headquarters.[4]

The content of these alleged notes range from the sublime to the ridiculous. The first mention of the information contained therein concerns a top-secret government experiment involving teleportation:

“As a further concluding remark to this chapter, both Tim Cooper’s father MSgt Harry B Cooper, now deceased and Jim Angleton’s grandfather (James Jesus Angleton, Section 2, Chapter 1), also deceased in 1987, have both described early government work involving teleportation experiments. One such set of experiments was said to have taken place at Wright-Patterson AFB in early 60s. Needless to say, those early experiments ended up in disaster where solid innate matter was turned inside out as did the animals they used in the experiments. Jim Angleton’s grandfather James Jesus who is mentioned above related the following with Jim reading from his CIA notes. Angleton writes: The first transport blew up a rat. It literally blew up into pieces. A visitor (Alien) helped them tweak the dimensions to send the rate from point “a” to point “b.” But as of 1979, they had not been able to make a rat move. However, in the ’90s, they were successful in moving water from point “a” to point “b.”[5]

The Sublime Albert Einstein

The Sublime

It is interesting that the information above mirrors almost exactly a scene in the 1999 movie, “Galaxy Quest”. In it, a pig-rat thing is transported aboard a spaceship and is turned inside out and exploded before the inexperienced operator ran the transporter properly. Coincidence? We think not, especially when one considers that the rewriting of “real” information (i.e. the script of a movie in this case) in order to fit with the fantasies as displayed in Collins’ book and other, similar venues is par for the course for the scammers. Another notable example is provided in the very next section below.

Angleton Jr. provided the following information to Collins and several others, allegedly taken directly from the personal notes of Albert Einstein in 1952 and formerly in the possession of his late grandfather, but with their actual origins much closer in time.

The Ridiculous

“The qualitative picture is a local field of positive cosmological constants contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the craft. The layer was controlled by the EM brainwave of the pilot. The pilot also has a Q* type of field. Dr. Einstein expanded… The fuselage of the craft was more liken to a high temperature super-conductor to which the occupants do not feel the g forces at high accelerations or sharp turns. There is a direct correlation to mind-linkage via headband and hand-panels. There is an exotic field surrounding the vehicle. The hull had super-conducting properties[6]

“We watched the craft displace gravity via propagation by a magnetic wave (3). It resonated at first, ALF (Alien Life Form) our liaison, telepathically explained its basic propulsion stating that N in the equation (not shown) is the number of pairs in the super-conductor (these electron pairs contribute to the anti-gravity effect)…with a slowly changing component and frequency for the EM field.[7]

Bob Collins comes close to recognizing the probable true source for the above quote in the very next paragraph. He writes:

“This scene seems to be depicted in the 1951 movie, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ (4) where in this case the scientist is Albert Einstein and the alien is ALF[8]“.

As we will see in the next section, Bob Collins himself is convinced the person he has been speaking to since at least February 2001 and probably earlier is the bona-fide grandson of the late James Jesus Angleton. It is little wonder why. Having the apparent endorsement of such a high profile figure -albeit twice removed- does wonders for your credibility and perhaps lessens the need to do a little fact checking.

The information that has been attributed to James Jesus Angleton is both startling and worrying at the same time. Startling because the information itself is fantastical in nature, and worrying because of the apparent disregard of national security in leaving allegedly classified information laying around in a large collection of notes to be published at will by anyone who sees fit. This flies in the face of what we know about the real James Jesus Angleton, spymaster extraordinaire.

With this in mind, we at Reality Uncovered decided to do a little fact checking of our own.

Will the real Angleton family please stand up.

The goal of our investigation couldn’t be simpler; Verify or disprove the existence of the grandson of the late James Jesus Angleton, said to be a living in Florida, Miami. What better way to start than to go straight to the source, i.e. the known family of James Jesus Angleton as documented in his obituary, printed in the New York Times of May 12, 1987[9].

Excerpt:
“Mr. Angleton is survived by his wife, Cicely d’Autremont; a son, James Charles Angleton, of Los Angeles, and two daughters, Guru Sangat Kaur[10], of Great Falls, Va., and Lucy d’Autremont Angleton, of New Mexico. He also leaves a brother, Hugh Angleton of Boise, and two sisters, Carmen Mercedes Angleton of Rome and Delores Guarnieri of Florence, Italy.”

With the above information in hand, Reality Uncovered researcher “Wormwood” conducted a thorough genealogical search and found the contact details for all of the immediate family of James Jesus Angleton listed in his obituary. Reality Uncovered co-administrator “Access Denied” was volunteered to make contact with the family, and a few days later spoke with Lucy Angleton, daughter of James Jesus Angleton, on the telephone.

Lucy confirmed to Access Denied that James Jesus Angleton didn’t have any grandchildren living in Florida, nor did he have any grandchildren by the name of James Angleton Jr., James Jesus Angleton Jr., James Angleton III or any other derivative of the name. Lucy also kindly put Access Denied in touch with another member of the family, a person related to one of her uncle’s, who confirmed the exact same thing.

We now knew for sure that the information attributed to James Jesus Angleton must be bogus, so we set about finding out who the mysterious “grandson” really is.

We already knew from Bob Collins’ statements in Exempt from Disclosure that James Jesus Angleton Jr. was alleged to be a banker working in Miami, Florida. This same information was told to us by Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green via email in response to questions by Ryan Dube of Reality Uncovered, and was also confirmed in an email exchange between the authors of this article and Jack Sarfatti, by way of Jack Sarfatti’s email discussion list.

Extract from Kit Green email of January 20, 2007:

“I have no idea what Collins means by the whole Angleton thing with the emails, address differences, and Broadbent. I had no idea that Steve was in touch with the Grandson. But, if it is the real Grandson, he could probably trust the man…the stories about what he found in his grandfather’s diaries are things I have only heard third hand. I do know:

1. Collins is in touch, or was, with Angleton’s real grandson…the Vice President of the Bank in Florida. The same guy with the stories about what his grandfather and father told him, and the diaries.

2. That guy was also in touch with me, over a year ago, about a serious medical condition in his family. In that discussion he referred to his Grandfather often  (who I knew, but not well)…but never about the UFO and alien stuff. He also was in touch for a while with Hal, and Gordon, and others. What they forwarded to me from him about the Soap Opera (never a part of my discussions with him) was somewhat as tough to believe as some of the most sane of John Lear’s statements. So, for a while at least…Collins was in touch with the right guy.

3. He had a falling-out with Collins over what Collins put in his book:

he was furious. It was not that it was not true, and not that it wasn’t what he had said…but the same as others have had problems with. Bob and sworn secrecy and privacy…and broke the rules. I saw those emails.

At that time, he broke off all contacts with Collins. I have no clue if he is back in touch or not. Or, if in touch, with the same and the real guy…”

Extract from email to Jack Sarfatti’s discussion group by Jack Sarfatti, January 3, 2007:

“For the record I never saw or had in my possession any official military record of Robert Collins. I never saw his DD-214. My information is based on e-mail hearsay from at least one reliable source. Be that as it may. Exempt from Disclosure has some interesting details including the connection to James Jesus Angleton JJA. I can confirm now that indeed it is almost certain that JJA’s grandson JA Jr has been running RMC [Robert M.Collins] in a significant way. JA Jr was and may still be a Sr VP Hemisphere Bank in Miami and is head of Former Intelligence Officer’s Association Chapter in Miami…”

Using this information, it was a simple task to locate the email address and contact details for the James Angleton Jr. person alleged to be the grandson of JJA. His name and the corresponding bank email address was found on the website of the Miami-Dade Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO/see Appendix A)[11], later renamed to the Ted Shackley Chapter of the AFIO. The email address, James.Angleton@hnbus.com, confirmed the bank was indeed the Hemisphere National Bank[12] as mentioned by Jack Sarfatti in the email above. Hemisphere National changed its name to Republic Federal in early 2007[13], with James Angleton’s email address, James.Angleton@Federalrepublic.com, also changing on the AFIO website to reflect the change. We also discovered another email address used by Angleton, namely Jim_Angleton@msn.com, which is present on his personal biography (see Appendix B) in an application[14] posted by the City of Miami and therefore a public record. Later, Collins confirmed both email accounts as being grandson Angleton Jr.’s.

Back in early 2007, we discovered for ourselves that the James Angleton Jr. who was in contact with Bob Collins was indeed the same James Angleton Jr. who worked at the bank. A highly-charged discussion was taking place on Jack Sarfatti’s email discussion list concerning the distribution of plagiarized notes by Angleton Jr. which wound up in Exempt from Disclosure. I wrote to Angleton using the Hemisphere National Bank email address on February 12, 2007. He replied just a short time later:

“Dear Mr. Broadbent,

Thank you for introducing yourself. This email address is strictly used for business purposes. I am not interested in this topic and yes, some out there use my last name. Please do not forward their gossip. I hope you will understand the true spirit of this final communication for privacy as it is intended. All the best, Jim.”

I replied one more time by asking him if he had a different email address he could use, to which he responded:

“If you are referring to bantering by Dr. Sarfatti and Robert Collins, I have knowledge of their conduct. Other than this, the internet is full of frauds, wanna-be’s and crazies. For this reason is why I really do not reply back and refer it to my security department.  Do you feel my life is in danger?”

Less than a day later, on February 13th, Bob Collins sent this short one line email to the main discussion list:

“Broadbent, JA Jr turned you off politely didn’t he? Please learn…..Rmc”

My email to James Angleton was sent to him only and to no one else. The fact that Collins knew Angleton had “turned me off politely” proved beyond any doubt they were in contact with each other.

To be on the safe side, I emailed Collins on May 30, 2009 and asked him some specific questions related to his Angleton contact:

Stephen Broadbent wrote: [to Collins]

Thanks for being so patient with me.
When you have contacted Angleton in Florida, have you used the
bank email address or only the msn email address? Have you spoken
to him on the telephone at the bank, or only at home? Did you
have any contact with Junior’s father who died in 2004?

Thanks again,
Steve

Collins wrote: [to Broadbent]:
All of that

This email response confirms critical information. The Angleton Jr. that he is in contact with uses both the bank and msn.com email addresses, he has spoken to him both at work and home and furthermore confirms that Junior’s father died in 2004, information that would be essential in uncovering the true family history.

To the casual observer however, it appeared the Florida James Angleton was who he alleged to be. The link to the Association of Former Intelligence Officers is a massive clincher for most people and that he also appears to be a respectable banker only serves to cement that. Upon hearing that James Angleton was actually not who he was alleged to be, Jack Sarfatti found it extremely difficult to believe based on the AFIO link alone:

Fri 01/05/2009 00:53

how do you explain this?
http://www.geocities.com/afiomdc/ci.html

We will come to the AFIO information shortly. A search at the Republic Federal Bank website confirms the man is indeed named James Angleton Jr. and also reveals that he is the Senior Vice President of Real Estate[15]. This of course rules out the possibility of someone by another name simply using the Angleton name for there own purposes. Or so it would appear.

Bob Collins, as we already know, was another, who was utterly convinced based on flimsy evidence, as the email exchange below will illustrate. He had earlier asked me “how could someone with no technical background just make that stuff up?”

Broadbent email to Collins dated April 21, 2009:

I agree with you about the technical background. That is of course assuming he didn’t have help preparing those notes – from someone with a technical background.

The next question may seem strange at first glance, but who was it, who told you, that Angleton was JJA’s grandson?

Collins’ reply dated Tue April 21, 2009 17:07:

Stop making things up. You make no sense, the guy[s] a Banker, there would be no purpose as a Banker to make things up or get a tech person to help him, then that tech person would have to know something about super conductors, this is beginning to sound crazy. As for grandson look it up, it’s all over the Internet….do the research…..Rmc

Having already learned the Angleton family had no such relation in Florida, we went trawling through the paper trail in order to prove it once and for all. I believe the term for this is known as “Doing the research”.

Just who is the Fake Angleton?

In order to trace the Florida Angleton family tree, we needed as many details as possible in order to make the search both accurate and less time consuming. Fortunately for us, we had RU researcher “Wormwood” on our side.

Searches on the internet turned up two obituaries [Appendix C & D] for the father of James Angleton Jr., which ties in with what we already knew: He died in 2004 of a brain tumor, as confirmed by several people and reported in several locations, but most notably by Bob Collins in the email exchange dated April 30, 2009 quoted further above.

The February-March, 2007: “Showdown”, posting of Dan Smith’s Blog briefly mentions the same thing:

“JA1 died in 1987.  JA2 developed a brain tumor in ’01 and died in ’04.”[16]

There was also another reference by Kit Green to Angleton Jr. in another email to Broadbent about Angleton Sr.’s illness:

” I exchanged a couple of emails once, with the grandson…never
met, and never even talked on the phone…but we never
discussed a thing about the Grand-dad. It was all because he needed some
information about progression of brain tumours. He was only
interested in me and me with him for NeuroRadiological
reasons…never a snippet about UFO’s or anything like that.”[17]

Having located the obituaries for Angleton Sr., we now had the dates we needed in order to untangle the mysterious web that had been woven in Florida.

As with any good story it has a beginning. As far as we can determine it started in 1989 with James Angleton Sr.’s claim of being the nephew of James Jesus Angleton in the Miami Herald article ANGLETON‘S OFTEN CONFUSED WITH EX-CIA CHIEF UNCLE [18] (see Appendix E). This was a strange find. We expected to see claims of him being the son of James Jesus Angleton, for Junior to be the grandson or no claims at all, but nephew? Research of public records into the Angletons who live in the Miami area, located the James Angleton Sr. referenced by this article. It also showed him as having a son named James Angleton Jr., thus proving the link between the two. It’s clear the reference in the Miami Herald is to Angleton Sr. due to his age as the article states he was an interpreter during the Korean War and the reference to his involvement as president of the Biscayne Boulevard Chamber of Commerce points directly to Angleton Sr. as per his obit (see Appendix C & D). However, the reference in Exempt from Disclosure states, its Angleton Jr., a Miami grandson, while the article refers to Angleton Sr. as a nephew not a grandson.

In addition to this, genealogy records on Ancestry.com by various families related to the real James Jesus Angleton eg. Mason, Alexander, Snodgrass, etc. and other public records do not support the Junior Angleton’s claim of being the grandson of James Jesus Angleton, nor does it support his father being the son of or even the nephew of James Jesus Angleton.

Early in 2001, Collins too appears to be in a state of confusion, labelling JJA Jr. as the son of JJA.

Of course, this seems to indicate that Collins was speaking with the Angleton Sr. (son of JJA) not Angleton Jr. and Collins is using the same initials for all three of them. Others also noted this incongruence. Later Collins apparently straightened it out to James Angleton Sr. and James Angleton Jr. as son and grandson of James Jesus Angleton.

As already noted, James Angleton Sr. passed away in 2004 with two obituaries being written. Again, in the obituaries we see references that match Olympia Ross’ clip ANGLETONS OFTEN CONFUSED WITH EX-CIA CHIEF UNCLE. Namely, Angleton Sr. was part of a “governmental intelligence agency for over 20 years”, president of the Biscayne Boulevard Chamber of Commerce and served in the air force during the Korean War.

Now we can deal with Angleton Sr.’s claim of being the nephew of James Jesus Angleton. We already know the James Jesus Angleton family has denied any relationship, but let’s further show how unlikely the relationship of Angleton Sr. being the son of James Jesus Angleton’s brother as stated in the Miami Herald.

James Angleton Sr. (DOB: 1932) was a native of New Jersey according to his obit (see Appendix C). His obit also lists Henry (DOB: abt 1929) and Eddie [Edward] Angelo (DOB: abt 1933) as his brothers. This adds another layer of confusion as the two brothers have a different last name. James was the middle child, thus Eddie couldn’t be from an earlier marriage. They all appear to be members of the Greek Orthodox Church. Certainly, James Angleton Sr. was deeply involved in the Greek Orthodox Church according to the obituaries.

Yet, the real James Jesus Angleton’s family were a Catholic family. James Jesus Angleton’s father, James Hugh Angleton, was born in Illinois. James Jesus Angleton’s mother, Carmen, was born in Mexico. They lived in Italy when the father, James Hugh Angleton, worked for the National Cash Register. The family has no Greek background whatsoever, nor are they in any way Greek Orthodox and there no records showing that James Jesus Angleton’s family ever even lived in New Jersey. The same applies to his brother Hugh Rolla Angleton.  James Hugh Angleton and his wife raised their first two children, sons, in Idaho, and that was also where the third child, Carmen, was born. In 1927, they moved to Dayton, Ohio where their fourth child, Delores, was born. Finally in December 1933, the family moved to Milan, Italy when James Hugh Angleton’s position changed within NCR[20].

Now simple arithmetic comes into play. Not only does the claim by James Angleton Sr. that he is the nephew of James Jesus Angleton not have any support as far as public records and other references show, but a comparison of birth dates reveals an unavoidable fact. Not only did James Hugh and Carmen’s, second child, Hugh Rolla (DOB: June 1920), not have a son named James Angleton, but also Hugh Rolla would have only been eleven (11) years old at the time of Angleton Sr’s birth. Any other siblings would be even younger. Furthermore, James Jesus (DOB: 9 Dec 1917), himself, would have been only fourteen (14) years old when Angleton Sr. was born – not to mention he would have been only thirteen (13) years old when Angleton Sr. was conceived! Any claims by Angleton Sr. that he is the son or nephew of James Jesus Angleton just don’t hold up. As Angleton Sr.’s house of cards falls, so do the claims attributed to his son Angleton Jr.

James Jesus Angleton, James Angleton Sr. and James Angleton Jr.

Spot the odd one out!
From left to right: James Jesus Angleton[21], James Angleton Sr[22]., James Angleton Jr[23].

Still we are not done, during this investigation attempts were made to contact the Angleton Sr. Family in Florida. Unable to get in touch with Penelope (Penny) Kays Angleton, Angleton Sr.’s widow and Angleton Jr.’s mother, we found contact had been made by another researcher with one of the other family members. Unfortunately, the family member balked at explaining why Angleton Sr. had a different last name than his brothers, but did verify that James Angleton Sr. indeed had two brothers named Edward and Henry Angelo. Public records also show that the oldest brother also has an alias of Henry Angelo I and Henry Angelo III (this may be Henry’s son), which is another familiar touch as grandson Angleton has also been known as Angleton III.

With these additional pieces of information, we gained Angleton Sr.’s marriage certificate by looking through the Florida marriage records available on Ancestry.com. For 1954/55 we find the following record:

James Angelo married Penelope Kays in 1955 Dade county, Volume 1527,  Certificate #2599.

We have a match. Penelope Kays is Penny Angleton’s maiden name and Angelo is the same surname as his two brothers, Henry and Eddie. James Angleton Sr. isn’t even an Angleton! Now who was the Angleton Sr.’s father?  Checking New Jersey 1930 census records for an Angelo with only one child at that time named Henry born abt 1929 we find only one record, in Warwick, Orange, New York, with parents named as being Henry and Mary Angelo. Henry Angelo was from Greece.

The final nail was fast approaching. We now know sometime after Angleton Sr.’s marriage and prior to 1973 James Angelo changed his and his family’s name to Angleton. It’s still a mystery as to why, with the best speculation being he wanted to anglicise his name for political and business purposes. He did run as a mayoral candidate under the Angleton name in the 1973 City of Miami Primary as per his obit and confirmed by the Miami-Dade County Elections Department[24].

With all of the bits and pieces falling into place nicely, just one more document was needed in order to prove beyond any doubt that James Angleton Sr., and therefore James Angleton Jr., could not be related to the late James Jesus Angleton. The state of Florida make death certificates available as part of the public records. The required information was sent in along with the purchase order and a week later James Angleton Sr.’s death certificate (link removed per request) arrived and confirmed what we already knew. The surviving spouse’s maiden name is indeed Penelope Kays and Angleton Sr. was born in S. Orange, New Jersey to parents Henry and Mary Angelo.  (Note: the death certificate is available and  can be viewed on request by those wanting to see verification of this for themselves.) It may never be known why James Angelo changed the family name or why he claimed to be the nephew of James Jesus Angleton. The fact of the matter is he did and he was in no way whatsoever related to the late spymaster.

Perhaps an even greater mystery is why Angleton Jr. decided to follow in his father’s footsteps, continuing the false claim of being a relative of James Jesus Angleton. We only know according to Caryn Anscomb[25]:

“The first known contact that JJA’s grandson, JA, Jr., had with a ufologist was with Richard Boylan in 1998.”

We also know it was four to five months after Michael Wolf Kruvant’s death[26] that Collins is in contact with Angleton Jr. on or before February 2001. There is speculation that Boylan’s, ex-NSA informant, Jesse[27], is one and the same as Angleton Jr., and while there are some reasons to suspect this to be the case, no evidence has been firmly established. However, Tim Cooper was also in contact with Angleton Jr. by at least March 26, 2000, whereby, they had a 45-minute chat on the phone about how Mangold’s book irritated his family for years, which establishes Cooper’s involvement with Angleton by at least this date.[28]

Who is James Angleton Jr.? We know he is the V.P. of Real Estate for the Federal Republic Bank and his resume as listed by the City of Miami shows heavy involvement in community activities including the Miami Chapter of Association of Former Intelligence Officers.  Other than the statement about twenty-five years involvement in real estate, little else is known about his career. As with the father, we dug deeper and revealed some startling surprises.

“James Angleton Jr. has been named as a new board member for the Jackson Memorial Foundation’s Jackson Metropolitans. He will help the Jackson Mets raise funds for various high-tech projects and cutting edge treatments at Jackson. Angleton is vice president/senior real estate lender at TotalBank in Miami. He began his banking career in 1980 after graduating from the University of Miami with degrees in finance and political science.”[29]

Angleton Jr. was hired August 6, 2001 from TotalBank to a yet-to-be-created position with the United Teachers of Dade (UTD), which he left sometime in 2004 or earlier amid a huge scandal to head up a golf tournament company[30] and then on to the Hemisphere National Bank[31].

Miami-Dade Union Drops Suit Against Whistleblower. When the United Teachers of Dade (UTD) reached a settlement with former president Pat Tornillo over the repayment of some of the dues he appropriated for his personal use, it received coverage in the Miami Herald. But there hasn’t been a peep about UTD and the American Federation of Teachers dropping their lawsuit against former UTD Chief Financial Officer James Angleton Jr., the man who called in the FBI when he discovered Tornillo’s crimes.

After the FBI raid and the establishment of an AFT administratorship, Angleton was suspended without pay – even though at the time Tornillo was still collecting a paycheck. The union subsequently filed suit against Angleton, claiming it was the victim of Angleton’s “professional negligence” for not ferreting out Tornillo’s misappropriations sooner.

That charge was an obvious frivolity, since Tornillo’s escapades were the subject of numerous reports on local television, and UTD was many months delinquent in paying its state and national dues because of its financial troubles. Angleton has moved on, and is currently the senior vice president of Hemisphere National Bank in Miami.” [32]

Indeed, what were the details in this lawsuit against Angleton? This was a hot news item that ran in the Miami Herald for a couple of years. Needless to say, Angleton Jr.’s and Albaum’s roles seem questionable. Just how can the Chief Financial Officer who handles the books and checks NOT know what’s going on? Albaum even admitted they saw the bills, but paid them anyway without question. What part of fiscal responsibility didn’t Albaum and Angleton Jr. understand? Rebecca Wakefield reached a similar conclusion in her article for the Miami New Times, “Hot for Teachers Share”.

“…Actually, no matter who leads the union, its health requires a vigilant membership that demands transparency. Tornillo got away with so much for so long because others let him. Here are a few highlights from two lawsuits UTD and its parent, the American Federation of Teachers, filed against Tornillo and other former union officials and employees:

One lawsuit, filed last year, charges that Tornillo, former union president Murray Sisselman, and their wives had been “systematically looting” union coffers since at least 1990, making off with more than three million dollars.

James Angleton, Jr. met Tornillo when his bank (TotalBank) loaned the union money to build a headquarters on Biscayne Boulevard. In August 2001, Tornillo offered him a $135,000 gig as the union’s chief financial officer. Boss man had been siphoning union money for years. Why would he suddenly want to create a new position and hire an outsider who would inevitably discover the mess in the books?

The answer, according to the lawsuit, was that Angleton was happy to cover up Tornillo’s malfeasance in order to enrich himself and his friends. He hired as consultants long-time friend David Albaum and Robert Heber, an ex-spy who helped Angleton start up the Miami chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (even, stupidly, listing the UTD building as a principal place of business). Albaum collected $288,043 for 18 months of advising his buddy. Heber got $48,084. “It is unclear what work Heber performed for UTD or Angleton,” alleges the lawsuit.

Angleton made liberal use of signature stamps for both Tornillo and Johnson, thus getting around the necessary dual approvals for spending union money. He fired Grant Thornton, the accounting firm that had audited the union’s books for years, and hired another firm, Cummings-Grayson, which also proved inept and is also included in the UTD lawsuit.

Angleton also, the lawsuit claims, mismanaged the construction of the union building to the degree that an $11 million project eventually cost $19 million. Angleton and Albaum loaned the sinking union money at mind-blowing rates — $76,000 interest over five months on a loan of $150,000. Another Angleton associate, attorney Richard Krinzman (a former Friends of WLRN board chairman), also loaned UTD money — $100,000, for which he received $10,000 in interest over just three months. Krinzman at the time was representing a developer in its attempt to buy a HUD building for the elderly that UTD owned. He also was the attorney for a company owned by Angleton and his father, a clear conflict of interest. To cover up all this and more, Angleton presented false numbers to the union’s executive board and local banks.

By April 2003 the union’s serious financial problems were becoming known. So Angleton ran to the FBI and tattled on Tornillo. Then he gave the Miami Herald a compelling story about how sickly Murray Sisselman had confessed Tornillo’s crimes, picturesquely, over a meal at the Rascal House. Conveniently, Sisselman was dead and couldn’t confirm this version of events. After spending 18 months looking at its ledgers, the union decided in October to sue Angleton and Albaum.[33]

Further back in the ’80s you will find that Angleton Sr. and Angleton Jr. were involved in real estate, motels and restaurants chains. The whole Angleton/Angelo family deals in real estate and construction. Both Angleton’s were activists for cleaning up Biscayne Boulevard, which was becoming a drug and red-light district.  No doubt in part to protect their investments. Angleton Jr. also has done considerable charity work to his credit, but which also seems to be a requirement as entrance to and movement among the upper echelon of Miami society for political and business contacts.

Let’s play intelligence games!

Just how did the Association of Former Intelligence Officers get into the act? In March 2001, James Angleton Jr. along with Robert A. Heber and Thomas R. Spencer Jr. incorporated (see Appendix G) the “Miami-Dade Chapter of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers” at the Florida Department of State, Division of Corporations. This was after Angleton Jr.’s contact with Tim Cooper, Puthoff and Collins.[34] The Chapter status was active until dissolved September 16, 2005. It was replaced by a more informal organization; the Ted Shackley Miami Chapter of AFIO, which is currently still active.

This was apparently the same year, 2001, that Angleton Sr.’s brain tumor was discovered. Does this incorporation have any link to Angleton Sr.’s claim in his obituary with text given by the family of being part of a “governmental intelligence agency for over 20 years”, even though in the Olympia Ross article that government mission was “to locate, rehabilitate and repaint older buildings”. Then again, maybe it’s Spencer’s long-term desire to be a spook[35] that brought him together with Angleton and Heber to create the Miami-Dade Chapter. Since both Angleton Jr. and Heber were implicated in the UTD scandal it might be of value to take a look at these two other individuals as Angleton Jr. has already been covered. The following biographies were found on the Internet.

“Thomas R. Spencer, Jr.- CNP 1996; life member Association of Former Intelligence Officers 1; senior partner, Spencer & Klein, P.A. 2 ; author, Jury Trials in Commercial Cases, Florida Bar Journal, March 1982, “Florida Small Business Practice,” Florida Bar Journal, 1987, and other journal pieces; member, Dade County and American Bar Associations, Florida Bar Association, Association of Trial Lawyers of America, Federalist Society 3, Federal Bar Association, International Bar Association, Republican Lawyers Association, and the Foreign Trade Association; founder and former chairman, Film Society of Miami, Inc., Miami Film Festival; president, University of Miami Alumni Association; life member, Atlantic Circle, and Martindale­Hubbell Preeminent Lawyers of America.”[36]

Spencer was also one of the primary attorneys for Foutanga Dit Babani Sissoko, a West African multimillionaire philanthropist, who turns out to have fraudulently obtained his money.

“A week before the dinner [with President Clinton], Mr. Sissoko had been arrested in Europe on a United States warrant and charged with trying to smuggle two Vietnam-era military helicopters out of Miami to Africa and offering a $30,000 bribe to a United States Customs agent.”[37] Sissoko, was later convicted of gratuity a reduced felony count among other things, but not before he gave Spencer and the other two defense lawyers a $65,000 Mercedes Benz from stolen money, which Spencer, while shocked, will probably keep it because he paid taxes on it.”[38] [39]

“Thomas R. Spencer Jr., of Spencer & Klein, has been elected to the board of directors of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers (AFIO) in McLean, VA. The AFIO is the national research and resource organization developing policy for the intelligence community, Congress and the public. Spencer practices in Miami and Washington, DC.”[40]

There is less information on Heber, but enough to wonder what he was being paid for when hired by Angleton Jr. for UTD work.

“Robert A. Heber is former U.S. ARMY Aviator and Vietnam veteran who served as Enlisted, Warrant Officer, and as a Commissioned Officer with the final rank of Major in Military Intelligence. He served in Vietnam as an Aircraft Commander and Air Operations Officer for Headquarters II Field Force and also served as an Intelligence Officer with the Special Operations Group of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). While with the CIA, he had experience in counter-terrorism, counter-narcotics, para-military operations and the collection and dissemination of intelligence.  He holds a TOP SECRET security clearance with the Department of Defense. His civilian career has included positions with the Sikorsky Aircraft and Pratt & Whitney divisions of United Technologies Corporation as well as with the Cessna Aircraft Company.  He holds Commercial pilot ratings for single and multi-engine aircraft as well as helicopters and served as a combat helicopter flight instructor at the U.S. Army Aviation School on his return from Vietnam. Since his retirement from United Technologies in early 1997, he has been a management consultant providing aviation and security consulting services to various individuals and organizations including the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defence.” [41]

Heber had also incorporated DADE AVIATION SERVICES, INC. between 1992 and 1993 before it was dissolved as well as a couple of other organizations, GRYPHON INTERNATIONAL, INC. (2002 and currently active) and GRYPHON GLOBAL SOLUTIONS LLC (2005-2007).

In 2004, Angleton Jr., is listed as president [42] of the Ted Shackley Chapter. Speculatively speaking, he has a political reason for being associated with James Jesus Angleton via his father’s claim of being James Jesus’ nephew as he lists the Ted Shackley Chapter in his biography. It could also be of benefit to Heber in Homeland Security and intelligence work to have an association with the family of the famous CIA spymaster provided he is aware of the claim. This leads one to consider if Spencer and Heber are not only colleagues, but also most likely friends of Angleton Jr. Could they be at least close enough to know Angleton’s two brothers are named Angelo? Did they have knowledge that Angleton Sr. and Junior were passing themselves off as being related to James Jesus Angleton?

If we back up to 2004 again we find another interesting event sponsored by The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce and The Ted Shackley Miami Chapter of AFIO[43] (see Appendix H).  The Chapter scheduled an event with Edgar Mitchell and Hal Puthoff. Puthoff is also a figure in Exempt from Disclosure. It was Puthoff who introduced Collins to the Angleton Jr., who claimed to be James Jesus’ Miami grandson back in 2001.[44] Collins was even aware that grandson Angleton Jr. wanted Puthoff to come to Florida and talk about zero point energy.[45] The event was cancelled due to a hurricane (see Appendix I). However, it’s clear there was an earlier connection with Angleton Jr. and Puthoff. Angleton had also given copies of his alleged Einstein notes to Puthoff, as described in early 2007 at the Reality Uncovered forum:

“JJA (Jesse Angleton Jr.) sent the excerpts of his alleged grandfather’s CIA notes to several people, allegedly four to six individuals starting in 2001. It was revealed to Jack’s thread that Hal Puthoff and Boylan were two of these folks. Bob was obviously a third. The identities of the remaining individuals have not been revealed.[46]

When one considers the subject detail of these notes, you could be forgiven for thinking they were written with a very specific target audience in mind. Why would James Jesus Angleton be in possession of notes describing successful teleportation experiments in the 1980’s is anybody’s guess – considering he left the CIA years earlier. Another fringe technology to receive the Angleton/Einstein notes treatment is magnetic wave (“EM wave”) antigravity propulsion, a subject that crops up repeatedly around the message boards and email lists of the UFOlogy circuit.

As with the actual identities involved in this story, the notes themselves do not stand up to closer scrutiny.

Where have we seen that before?

For anyone who doesn’t know Jack Sarfatti, he is a cosmology physicist with a Physics BA from Cornell and a PhD from the University of California who runs a popular online discussion group that deals with a number of fringe physics and technology subjects. In 2006 during a discussion around the alleged notes that Bob Collins published in Exempt from Disclosure, Jack Sarfatti recognized that many of the physics concepts attributed to the “Einstein quotes” were actually concepts Sarfatti himself publicly wrote about in 1996.

It didn’t take very long for several members of the email list to recognize that the notes quoted in Bob Collins book were actually direct, almost word-for-word copies lifted from Jack Sarfatti’s “QShip”[47] writings from 1998, which can still be viewed online today.

The specific quote identified as clear plagiarism came from page 158 in Collins’ book, and quoted earlier in this report.  Before long, other members of the email list began identifying other sections of the alleged “Angleton Notes” that held text directly copied from Sarfatti’s earlier public writings.

A few examples of clear plagiarism are shown below. Keep in mind that Angleton began releasing these “notes,” allegedly from the journals of his CIA grandfather, around 2001. Jack wrote his quotes in 1996 through 1998:

JJA Jr: “Dr. Einstein expanded …. The fuselage of the craft was more liken to a high temperature superconductor to which the occupants do not feel the g forces at high accelerations or sharp turns. Their is a direct correlation to mindlinkage via headband and handpanels.” [23]

Jack: “I mean his remarks that the fuselage of the craft is a high temperature superconductor, that the occupants do not feel high-g forces in sharp right-angle turns at very high apparent accelerations to the external observer, and that the ship is controlled in a direct mind-link between the pilot and the craft via the headband and the hand-imprint panels.”

JJA Jr: “The qualitative picture is a local field of positive cosmological constants contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the craft. The layer was controlled by the EM brainwave of the pilot. The pilot also has a Q* type of field.

Jack: “…the qualitative picture a local field of positive cosmological constant contributing to the local metric field in a small boundary layer around the skin of the space craft. The detailed structure of this boundary layer is somehow controlled by the EM brain-waves of the pilot in addition to the pilot’s Q* field, and other auxiliary EM fields and giant Q’s built into the ship’s architecture.”

It became clear to everyone following the discussion that somewhere along the line, whatever excerpts Angleton Jr. was sending out to Collins and others were clearly *not* from any sort of secret CIA journal, but instead copied from existing public texts that had existed on the Internet for several years.

The response from this episode was tremendous. It revealed a great deal about the inner workings of the sources that supplied allegedly secret government inside information to Bob Collins, and which Collins subsequently published in his book. In an effort to defend himself from claims that *he* had plagiarized, Collins emailed Jack Sarfatti a quote from an early email by James Angleton Jr. from March 9, 2001 which detailed how he described his “grandfather’s” notes. His email to Bob Collins (and others) read as follows.

“From: kenya08@xxxxxx.net

He (grandfather) wrote it down and then added sentences to like introduce what that portion of the equation stood for and put it away. He used index cards that have aluminum threads so you can not photo copy or fax eats toner as the page is all black. I guess the aluminum shines while the light from the copier goes over it. They are written in pencil of a light gray, faint script. He details that the presentation was 4 hours. First hour was articulating the many departments used to breakdown and put together. Second hour was reading the equations and expanding on each. Third hour was lunch with speeches from the AF and Navy. Fourth hour was a demonstration of the equations in testing. At that time they claimed how they were perfecting the wobble of the vehicle. A filmstrip was shown of an actual one of theirs and what we had to date different. At the end of the presentation was a 4 min tape of ALF who died months later. [Alien Life Form, mighty original hey?] So, according to the matter, it worked sort-of and then was perfected as mentioned before in 1973.”

Jack Sarfatti, in a subsequent email, also confirmed that Angleton Jr. began distributing his information in 2001:

“PS My first contact with Jim Angleton Jr was in 2001 when he contacted me. I had no idea of any Angleton involvement in UFOs until then. My Q-Ship paper was early 1998 based on the Corso-Birnes book and other sources that I cited none of which were any secret notes.”

Once the proof was laid out, a number of folks immediately jumped on Bob Collins, ignoring the fact that he was only quoting a source – Angleton Jr. Instead of going after Angleton Jr., the following writers accused Collins himself of plagiarism.

Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green on February 11, 2007:

“Explains a lot about the truth of the word Plagiarism. Jack is owed an apology.”

When further pressed on the issue from a private researcher, Kit responded with a defense of Angleton Jr. – stating that he knows him personally and vouches for him, and accuses Collins of plagiarizing often, as he writes on February 12th:

“The main problem I have with THIS explanation is that: a) I know Angleton, and he seems pretty straight-up…weird story but seems to not have a personality to steal language; Collins has done the same to me as seems he may have done here…often: Plagiarize.”

Dr. Eric Davis: On February 22, 2007 Dr. Eric Davis decides to chime in as well.  Could this be related to the fact that some of the Angleton notes reference teleportation – distributed around the same time Eric Davis released his Air Force teleportation paper?[48]

“All of these alleged claims are nothing but senseless, baseless rumors that have taken on a life of their own.  But it looks like most of you have already figured this out while I was traveling at a conference.  I am just now getting caught up on 600+ e-mails.

Jack needs the freedom to get back to doing physics research because this kind of internet chatter must be totally distracting.  And somehow Jack always ends up being on the receiving end of someone’s insane allegations.”

Gene Loscowski: The following month, Gene Loscowski, – aka Gene Lakes, aka Paul McGovern, aka Nick Weston, aka Rick Doty aka Insert-name-here[49] – a shadowy persona that exists only as an email identity and heavily involved in promoting the 2005 Serpo hoax, attempts to corroborate something Angleton had told Collins.

“On 3/8/07, Sonata <Sonata@donet.com> wrote:

Angleton also mentioned some operations were moved into the Utah mountains. The “metal” is that room temp super-conducting material……Rmc”

Gene Loscowski wrote:

“Heard this same story”

When Bob Collins himself realized that the Angleton/Einstein notes contained extracts from Sarfatti’s text of 1998, he came up with an “explanation” for this very uncomfortable fact:

Dan Smith writes:
“Between 1998 and 2001 the bulk of his fathers notes were stolen from a warehouse.  Some of the remaining notes were water damaged in a hurricane after 2001.  Also, these notes had been reviewed by the FBI, before they were stolen.

After being stolen, JA, Jr., attempted to retrieve the copies that he had already distributed.  Some of these returned copies were then transmitted to Bob Collins and appeared in the 2nd edition of EfD.  Somewhere in that confusion, it appears that some of Jack’s and Mondanese’s writings were collated into the copies of the original notes, and this is what had appeared in Collins’ book.” [50]

The above explanation is rendered absolutely meaningless when one considers the notes are not genuine in the first place as Angleton Jr. isn’t who he claims to be. The sole reason for Sarfatti’s own words being used in writings allegedly from 1952 is quite simple: They were copied, or in other words plagiarized, in order to lend some kind of credence to a bunch of concocted clap-trap.

Earlier, before all of these plagiarism revelations in February 2006 – when RU researchers first suspected that the Florida man calling himself Angleton Jr. was not who he claimed to be – we asked Kit Green if he knew the man and whether anything he had to write was legitimate or not. Kit’s response, posted further above, indicated that Kit not only knows the Florida Angleton, but had personal dealings with him and his family.

In the email, it could be argued that Kit provides a convincing case that the “real” Angleton grandson is a “stand-up” person – the same thing he said to other researchers as quoted above.  This “defense” of Angleton Jr. also reveals the critical importance of his “grandfather’s” notes to the process, motives and agenda of the people who distribute UFO information to the public through people like Bob Collins, Bill Moore, Bruce Maccabee, Jamie Shandera, Standon Friedman, and many, many others.

We wanted to find out who it was that first introduced Bob Collins to Angleton in the first place, so we asked him via email. He responded within a few minutes:

This particular response forced us to review our emails from a couple of years ago where we interviewed Hal. In the 2007 interview, Hal was asked for his opinion on the plagiarism within the Angleton Notes. He replied:

“That material (I got it from Collins) sure looked plagiarized to me from the git-go.  On this Jack and I have always agreed.  I just don’t know the source of plagiarism.  I pointed this out to Collins right away, so the ball went back into his court.”

He was quick to point out that he received the material directly from Collins, though the information from Collins and others would suggest he received it directly from Angleton. There was also no suggestion that he may have had a hand in introducing Angleton to Collins in the first place.

Email from Bob Collins to a short email list on June 12, 2008:

“Get off it, it’s not what I wish to believe, Angleton Jr. told me that story, I get very tired of being accused. He is the same Angleton that sent those Einstein notes to Hal Puthoff and I. Angleton also mentioned that guard you talk about who snapped to attention when Nixon showed up. Angleton Jr. said Be Be Rebozo , Jack Gleason, Angleton Sr. and Angleton Jr. were there.

Angleton Jr. said his father told him to be quiet and NOT say a word; Jr said the Alien smelled really bad lying in that cylindrical coffin and wore a head band. He said the Alien was brought up to Homstead from a Navy Sub Base in the Caribbean

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Rebozo

I don’t run around making proclamations or claim I know all the answers, but I get accused of that! I state the “facts” as I know them and stick to those “facts.” I don’t use HYPE or try to sensationalize the information, but I sure get attacked more often than not……Rmc”

Regardless of who it was who first introduced Angleton to Collins and irrespective of who Angleton sent the notes to, it was very revealing to see all of the same names involved that we see in all other aspects of our investigation into the long-running scam that has infected certain areas of UFOlogy for over thirty years now.

We did give James Angleton Jr. several chances to clarify his own part in this story. The following is an email sent to him in late April 2009 containing several specific questions:

From: Stephen Broadbent

To: james.angleton@republicfederal.com

Sent: Tuesday, April 21, 2009 8:01 AM

Subject: Request for Clarification

Hello Jim,

You may remember I contacted you in early 2007.

I am in the process of writing an article and would appreciate your cooperation with the following. I have several questions for you and all of them can be answered quickly and without any further ado.

Are you the grandson of  ‘James Jesus Angleton’, nicknamed ‘Kingfisher’, who was the Counter Intelligence (CI) Chief for the CIA, that was forced to retire Christmas Eve 1975 from the CIA? If not do you have any family relationship at all to James Jesus Angleton and if so what is it?

Did you share or in any manner provide Bob Collins or his associates any information from James Jesus Angleton’s personal, handwritten notes, which may have been taken during CIA briefings (classified or not). Do you even have such notes?

Did you share or in any manner provide Bob Collins or his associates any information from your father’s personal, handwritten notes? Alleged to be in the thousands. Do you even have such notes?

Did you relay any of the following information (or similar) to Bob Collins or one of his associates with the understanding you are the grandson or another close relative of James Jesus Angleton?

As a further concluding remark to this chapter, both Tim Cooper’s father MSgt Harry B Cooper, now deceased and Jim Angleton’s grandfather (James Jesus Angleton, Section 2, Chapter 1), also deceased in 1987, have both described early government work involving teleportation experiments. One such set of experiments was said to have taken place at Wright-Patterson AFB in early 60s. Needless to say, those early experiments ended up in disaster where solid innate matter was turned inside out as did the animals they used in the experiments. Jim Angleton’s grandfather JJA who is mentioned above related the following with Jim reading from his CIA notes. Angleton writes: The first transport blew up a rat. It literally blew up into pieces. A visitor (Alien) helped them tweak the dimensions to send the rate from point “a” to point “b.” But as of 1979, they had not been able to make a rat move. However, in the ’90s, they were successful in moving water from point “a” to point “b.” Page 137, Exempt From Disclosure, 2nd Edition, Robert M. Collins, with Richard C Doty and Timothy S Cooper, 2006.

Did you relay the following information (or similar) to Bob Collins or one of his associates with the understanding you are the grandson or another close relative of James Jesus Angleton:

“Below is an extract taken from the hundreds of personal hand written notes taken during classified CIA briefings which belonged to James J Angleton who was fired/retired form the CIA in 1974…Graciously, the grandson James Angleton provided many of the notes to these authors.” Page 157, Exempt From Disclosure, 2nd Edition, Robert M. Collins, with Richard C Doty and Timothy S Cooper, 2006.

In a previous email to me you wrote that you had:
“…knowledge of their conduct. Other than this, the internet is full of frauds, wanna-be’s and crazies… Please do not forward their gossip.”

The quotes I have pasted above are not gossip, but the actual context of a book. Any reply you give to this email can be seen as an opportunity to clarify or rebut such statements.

If you wish to talk to me about this matter, you can contact me on xxxxxxxxxx.

Best Regards,
Stephen Broadbent

Despite opening a dialogue and stating (several times) an intention to call, Angleton Jr. never did take the opportunity to answer those very simple questions in the email above.

Exempt From Facts

The wealth of evidence we have uncovered and documented within this article couldn’t be any clearer. Neither Angleton Jr. nor his deceased father have any kind of family relationship to the late James Jesus Angleton and neither of them have a background in the Intelligence services. Any and all claims of “secret” notes bequeathed to them by their father/grandfather are bogus and have absolutely no basis in reality. The knock on effect of this simple fact is one that reaches far and wide, for example, from p157-p158 Exempt from Disclosure 2nd Ed.:

“It must be emphasized that JJJA [sic] was not a technical person so the notes are sketchy and unclear in many cases. The reason for presenting this extract is to show readers the similarity between what the Los Alamos source as saying and what the “Einstein notes” say:”

As we have already determined, the “Einstein notes” are bogus and if they are being used in order to bolster the claims of a conveniently unnamed Los Alamos source, which the authors themselves disavow as being unverified documents[51], one can safely assume that those claims are also bogus. With such claims forming the basis for ludicrous “Reverse Engineering Programs” and all which that entails, i.e. so called crash retrievals and “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”-type exchange programs, one must begin to wonder if the only thing these unnamed sources are good for is dissecting the plots of popular science fiction movies. The similarities between the “Einstein notes” and the claims of the LANL source would also suggest that the same people maybe involved in creating and disseminating the myth in the first place.

One must now ask the question what role Bob Collins has played in all of this. If he truly wanted to verify the information he had been given, it would have been a simple task for him to do exactly as we have done. The information we have uncovered is available both on the Internet and as part of the public record. A quick look at the ages of the three Angleton’s should have been enough to set alarm bells ringing. Sadly, as is the case with many of the other sources quoted in his book, once you start looking a little deeper into their identities and the claims attributed to them, everything simply falls apart at the seams. When pressed with this unavoidable truth, Collins becomes insulting and dismissive of any and all arguments he is presented with. Are those the actions of someone with a desire for reporting the truth or are they the actions of someone who is desperate to continue a pitiful charade on behalf of those behind the fantasy and the lies? In a very simple statement Collins himself has given the answer, “Get off it, it’s not what I wish to believe…”[52]

That group, known by us as “Scammers Inc.” are being subjected to the same level of scrutiny we have afforded to the James Angleton Jr. claims. That particular investigation has uncovered the age-old motive of greed as the driving force behind the creation of the Core Story hoax. They have discovered if you can convince enough investors that you have an extensive background in the highly secretive world of US Intelligence and were privy to the darkest of secrets involving crashed flying saucers and the technology surrounding them, the earning potential reaches high into the stratosphere. Some people clearly have more money than sense…

Colour of Money Update


Joe Firmage

In our previous article, we wrote about the interaction of millionaire philanthropist Joe Firmage with Bob Collins and Rick Doty. Since the article was published, we have received a large number of emails from fellow researchers, so-called “insiders” and Bob Collins himself.

One of those insiders confirmed to us that Bob was indeed involved in the Firmage episode, but as an unwitting and honest “broker”. Essentially he is saying that Mr. Collins was conned along with Mr. Firmage, something we at RU have long thought to be the case. The source further revealed that Joe Firmage was taken for the astonishing figure of around the $60 million mark, later rounded down to a still eye-watering $24 million by another source. Enquiries into the actual amount “invested” by Mr. Firmage are still ongoing and we will update this information in a future update.

It is worth pointing out so there can be no avoidance of doubt; we know who the core people are behind Scammers Inc and Bob Collins is not one of them.

Bob has indeed been the victim of a elaborate and long running con job. Our next update will reveal the true extent of just how far Mr. Collins has been taken for a ride and how he, perhaps more than anyone else, has helped the scammers achieve their aims.

Keep your life jackets at the ready, there are rough waters ahead!

UFOlogy Uncovered: Handicapping the “Other Side”


UFOlogy is frequently criticized for not making new information or analysis that may cast an “unfavorable light” on a given case or cases readily available to others. In some cases it would appear opposing points of views are actively being suppressed by handicapping the “other side” in various, sometimes subtle, ways.  The following may be one example of how this is being accomplished.

On April 1st, RU received the following email from Robert Hastings…

This will be posted on UFO Chronicles on April 2nd.

RU’s contributions to the exposing of Doty and Collins are appropriately noted, as is my justifiable criticism of your group’s collective shortsightedness regarding the core UFO phenomenon.

 
Attached to this email was a copy of Robert’s new article entitled “The MJ-12 Saga Continues: Operation Bird Droppings” in Microsoft Word format.  Considering Robert had previously requested our permission to use the material and finding RU’s contributions were indeed properly cited in the form of numerous URLs linking back to the relevant content on our site, we were looking forward to commenting on it after it was published.

On April 2nd, Frank Warren published the article on his web site UFO Chronicles and we immediately noticed that all the URLs linking to RU had been replaced with indirect links going through the third-party TinyURL service.  We found this problematic for a number of reasons, some of which were expressed in this email Steve sent to Robert Hastings that same day…

Thanks for sending the draft, it makes interesting reading.

However, the links have been changed to tinyurl’s from the original full links in the draft. There is no justifiable reason for this as the urls aren’t long.  Clearly this is an attempt to use our research to further an agenda but not allow us to benefit from the cross linking. Not only is this highly unprofessional, it exposes a bias in favour of only presenting one side of the story.

I would appreciate this being changed back to how it was in the draft within the next 24 hours. In return, we will provide links back to the original article. In the interests of transparency and fairness, I expect this is not asking too much.

 
And Robert responded with this…

“Clearly” ? Not so. I am a cyber-dinosaur and rely on others, including Frank Warren at UFO Chronicles, to post my articles. If you write to him, I suspect he would comply with your request. But I can not speak for him. I have copied him on this message.

BTW, if you guys investigated some of my own research, you would be a lot closer to uncovering reality.

 
To which Steve replied…

Thanks for the copy to Frank.

Frank, I would appreciate the URL’s changing back from the tinyurl’s to the original, thank you.

As for uncovering reality… one step at a time, one step at a time :)
 

 
To which Frank Warren replied…

Gentlemen,

The links were shortened “for no other reason” then to accommodate the rather slim” main column; however, they were meant to be “full functioning” links, as presented by the author, Robert Hastings.

Quite frankly I didn’t understand the problem until rechecking the piece and seeing that they are in fact “non-functional links.” We at UFO Chronicles (unless a prearrangement has been made for editing) strive to publish articles from our contributors exactly as they were presented, or as close as possible within the constraints of the template of our site.

In any event, the issue will be remedied in short order.

 
Let’s examine this response for intellectual honesty.  After all, it’s entirely possible we were too quick to judge Frank’s intent as Robert indicated in his response…

Thanks, Frank. I knew that you would respond appropriately. Perhaps after dealing with Doty and Collins, the guys at RU aren’t used to straight-shooters and just automatically assume the worst.

 
Frank first claims the only reason the links were shortened was because they were too long but is this true?  Here an excerpt from Roberts’s original draft…

So, Mr. Doty and Mr. Collins, what kind of excrement will you two birds drop to rebut this illuminating cache of information from the Reality Uncovered folks? Go for it! I have already pulled on my Hi-Top rubber boots.  

Regardless, I think Shawnna Connolly—given her sincere quest for the facts and her obvious bravery in the face of intimidation—would make an excellent witness in a courtroom. So would Stephen Broadbent and the other researchers associated with the Reality Uncovered (realityuncovered.net) exposé on Serpo, MJ-12, and related disinformation. A fuller discussion of these topics may be found at:

http://www.realityuncovered.net/blog/

Aaaargh! Speaking of MJ-12, I must now return to that sordid subject yet again.

MJ-Hell: It Still Lives!

For those of you unaware of this unfortunate development, we now have new-and-improved MJ-12 “documents” to further muddy the waters. Although no involvement with them on the part of Moore, Doty and/or Collins has been proved thus far, both Doty and Collins endorse their authenticity. These bogus papers came out of the woodwork, just as the first batch did 25 years ago, with no verifiable origin—that is, having no provenance, something essential to historical research, not to mention separating fact from fiction. Despite the sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle flaws and fabrications found in the latest batch of MJ-12 papers, a few well-intentioned researchers—who should have learned their lesson the first time around—have taken the new “documents” to heart and have, of their own volition, disseminated them far and wide while vouching for, or at least implicitly endorsing, their integrity. There are several websites devoted to the supposed validity of this MJ-Crap 2.0, but I certainly won’t advertize those fetid flytraps here.

I recommend instead the Fund for UFO Research’s online heads-up about one of the “documents,” the so-called SOM 1-01 field manual, supposedly written for military personnel engaged in the recovery of crashed UFOs:

http://www.cufos.org/ros5.html

 
On Frank’s web site the link to CUFOS is retained but the link to RU is replaced by a TinyURL.  Why?

[actually ALL the links to RU have now been removed and rendered non-functional but more about that later]

At 37 characters long, the RU link is only 7 characters longer than the CUFOS link and looking at Frank’s web site, the “rather slim main column” appears to be able to accommodate at least 60 characters given the font size he chose for the body of his article.  In fact a review of Robert’s draft finds that the longest of any of the links to RU was only 55 characters so this claim appears to be dubious at best.

Furthermore, Frank then goes on to claim that he found the links were “non-functional” in the original piece but this is simply not true.  Clicking on the links in Robert’s original Word document takes you to the intended web site so this appears to be another deliberate red herring.

At any rate, Frank then ends his message with the claim that the issue will be “remedied in short order” giving us (and Robert) the impression that he would replace the TinyURLs with fully “functional” direct links to RU as requested but is that true?  I assumed Frank was acting on good faith and responded…

That Robert would be an understatement.  :)

Thank you Frank for your understanding.  Please let us know when you get the direct links restored so we can return the favor.

As an aside, I still remember stumbling on to your site years ago when you had pretty much the only detailed information on the “Battle of LA” to be found anywhere on the net.

 
To which Frank responded…

No problem! I was surprised that I missed that; I appreciate the “heads up.”

BOLA is one of my pet cases, and the research continues to this day . . . I appreciate the acknowledgment.

 
Then some time later after some discussion of the BOLA case I got this second response to my above message from Frank…

links are in place by the way . . .

 
So I went back to his site to review the changes only to find… nothing had changed.  I responded…

I’m not seeing it… even tried Ctrl-F5.

 
To which Frank, perhaps confused, replied with a link to his website related to the BOLA case and I responded…

I was talking about the links to RU in Robert’s article… it appears you haven’t corrected them yet.

 
It was late and I got no response so I went to bed only to find this message from Frank in the morning…

Mornin’ Tom,

I just checked all the links in the piece and they are “all” functional . . .

 
To which I replied before heading off to work…

No they’re not.  The use of tinyurls (indirect linking through a third party) prevents the links from being indexed by Google and other web crawlers thus preventing the sites you link to benefit from cross linking.  In addition, tinyrurl is blocked by many web filters thus preventing those behind corporate firewalls from following the links.

This is bad netiquette and improper attribution of other people’s work is considered highly unprofessional.  One might get the impression you’re unduly biased against other points of view and I would hope a serious UFOlogist like Robert would prefer not to have his work associated with such practices.  As you know, credibility in this field is tough to come by and in the court of public opinion, credibility can be irrevocably lost in an instant these days.

If the links aren’t restored by the time I get home from work this evening I will assume you’re acting on bad faith and reneging on your statement to us that you would fix the problem and I will publish an expose in my critique of Robert’s article on both RU and BAUT detailing this and the spammer like technique you use to draw attention to your website and were recently called out for on ATS…

http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread449706/pg1

 
When I got home I found this response in my inbox…

I have to say Tom, your accusatory tone and your assumptions towards people you don’t know give me pause in regards to your research. I see much irony here as you use “netiquette”,  i.e., courtesy and civility re Internet protocol as an argument to get your way; however, you seem to ignore the parent values in which they were derived, that is “etiquette” civility and common courtesy to the individual.

Furthermore, threatening me as a ploy to do your bidding isn’t a prudent move on your part–“honey” trumps “vinegar” every time.  As I stated previously:

“The links were shortened “for no other reason” then to accommodate the rather slim” main column; however, they were meant to be “full functioning” links, as presented by the author, Robert Hastings.”

I’m relatively certain Robert didn’t pen the article for your benefit, and I can say emphatically,  I didn’t publish it for that purpose.

I passionately support the ethics of “giving credit where credit is due” which is one of the reasons why I don’t yank the links out all together right now! The other is the respect I have for both Robert as a friend and colleague, and the appreciation I have for his decades of research/investigation into the UFO field. 

Credibility, and or respect  for a person is earned , and is only cognizant by those who are erudite with his or her character; I have achieved both long ago, and those who know me would vouch for that, as I would them.  Moreover, my actions have never been, nor will they ever be, dictated by the thoughts of others and or their opinions.

As I don’t know you, I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt, and assume you wrote this missive in haste and without forethought.

My participation at ATS is to enlighten the ignorant, and provoke intelligent conversation, which is usually the end result there. What you fail to mention in association with the link provided (to the thread)  is that the critics were in the minority, and the thread was very highly rated by the merit system employed by ATS. Moreover, if you read the entire thread, you’d see that “it”, and myself,  were appropriately sanctioned by ATS CEO, Mark Springer. 

Paradoxically, that thread was instigated by “Robert’s work” in bringing two more missileers to the table to report their respective eyewitness account of UFOs at or near nuclear missile silos. Additionally, I have started a thread there for this article as well, as I often due with penscript that is unique to TUC.

Finally, I have never had any complaints, comments etc., in regards to using “Tinyurl” to shorten URLs to accommodate our site; no one has ever indicated that they could not get to a site we highlight using this tool.

We currently have readers in over 145 countries and in monitoring the traffic “for this article” and I can safely say that the numbers are significant, and I would presume, given the fact that there are links in place to your site, you are seeing some collateral traffic . . . which of course wouldn’t be the case if Robert hadn’t have penned the article in the first place, as well as by us inserting functioning links.

Had you expressed your concern with the common courtesy and decorum that you allude to “for the internet” I would have responded in kind. That said, I’m going to remove the “tinyurl link” and replace it with your web-site name.

 
It would appear Frank lied and never had any intention of honoring our request and fixing the links in the first place.  The links are all “non-functional” now.

By the way, this was Steve’s response to the above missive…

Hi Frank,

It might be easier in the case of long urls in a narrow column to shorten them as so:

<a href=”http://www.realiyuncovered.net/serpo”>Text goes here</a>

The only thing that would be displayed on your site would be:

Text goes here

Obviously, you can change the text to anything you like.

As for the problem with tinyurl’s, Google rankings and search results are determined in part by other sites cross-linking to each other. Using tinyurl circumvents this and thus the site being linked to does not receive any “credit” from Google and the like. Actually, using the correct url’s also benefits your site in the same way.

I hope that helps.

 
Was our initial skepticism justified?

You be the judge.

 

UPDATE: A copy of Robert’s article The MJ-12 Saga Continues: Operation Bird Droppings has now been posted in our forum for discussion.

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.
