Hello Dr. Green, good to finally meet you in… albeit in cyberspace.

Yes well coincidentally (or not) I too share that interest. In fact Dr. Puthoff is no doubt familiar with this study funded (in the interest of leaving no stone unturned) by an associate of mine who used to sit in the office three doors down the hall from mine…Teleportation Physics Studyhttp://www.fas.org/sgp/eprint/teleport.pdf
[with less than stellar (pun intended) results unfortunately]
Anyway, I’d like to comment on the following points briefly if I may…
cgreen wrote:I believe a Reverse Engineering program has been going on for decades.
Sorry to hear that. I see no compelling reason to keep what would be the greatest scientific discovery in the history of mankind a secret when “they” [the nefarious MJ-12 group of lore I presume] have had the means [e.g. nukes] to take over and control the world for decades now do you?
cgreen wrote:It has been singularly unsuccessful.
Perhaps that’s because it’s non-existent and that’s simply an excuse used to perpetuate the Myth?
cgreen wrote:It was moved to the private sector in the '70s and the '80s.
Pardon the free energy pun but nothing exists in a vacuum… the government as currently structured could not exist without the private sector so that makes so sense to me… the bulk of our defense related work is already being done there…. i.e. what’s the point (difference)?
Contrary to popular belief (?) most defense related technologies have their origins in the private sector where innovation is spurred by competition for lucrative government contracts and in academia by the free flow and exchange of ideas (regulated by peer review) in the pursuit of knowledge, research grants, or for some… notoriety.
Seems to me the only reason to “move” this unsuccessful “reverse engineering” effort into the private sector would be to “lift the shroud of secrecy” so everybody could take a crack at it… then if any significant progress was made it would naturally be “reacquired” (classified) and developed into a weapon system to maintain superiority… but that hasn’t happened.
What am I missing here?
cgreen wrote:Uncle is quite clueless. Some guys in the IC are playing bad games, mostly because they are clueless, know they are, and want to figure out how to find, and get, inside.
Ah, I see, that explains a LOT… there is no inside… only those who’d like others to believe there is…and I see in a lot of cases they’ve succeeded.
cgreen wrote:I support Privacy (for sourcing)
Why am I not surprised? Anonymous sources are useless in the absence of independent verification and this only serves to perpetrate the Myth indefinitely…
[correct me if I’m wrong]
Thanks for link. Should be very interesting although I’m little concerned with the caption under Doty’s pic…Richard C. Doty, counter-intelligence specialist.
Ex-Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI) Special Agent.
That’s a bit misleading IMHO but I admit it does sound intriguing.
For those who don’t already know, Doty had no relevant Counterintelligence training beyond the basic training that everyone gets at the AFOSI Academy (same as the FBI + some AF specific stuff)… in fact his military record clearly shows the specialty he chose to pursue in May of 1980 after graduating (just prior to the Bennewitz affair) was Protective Services
[for VIPs etc.]… not Counterintelligence which is a separate course/school and no, the Counterespionage course he took in 1983 isn’t the same thing despite what others might like you to believe. In the context of his official job title, Special Investigator and Counterintelligence Technician
, CI is a generic term and it’s the same title every enlisted OSI agent gets. Also, one must not forget that above all he was a Technician
… that’s different from being an Intelligence Officer
[BTW the OSI is considered a special duty assignment in the AF… one must have a certain amount of time in service and reach a certain grade in thier career field (in Doty's case he had been a Security Policeman for ~10 years) before they can *volunteer* for it… they don’t go around actively recruiting folks]

Cool, it will be interesting to see if it differs significantly from this 1993 AIR report for example due to recent events… or not. The Fund for CIA Research?

Dr. Maccabee, Bill Moore & MJ-12
At this point we are forced to review the whole sordid history surrounding Bill Moore, his associate Rick Doty and his highly dubious claim to have been ordered to spy on Paul Bennewitz by members of unnamed agencies of the United States Government. This review is necessary in order to appreciate the lack of judgement that Dr. Maccabee (and therefore FUFOR) has demonstrated in his continuing support for and association with Bill Moore and more importantly Bill Moore's best known creation--the MJ-12 hoax.
Paul Bennewitz is a man with a long history of mental illness who, when lucid, ran a company called Thunder Scientific Corp., a manufacturer of temperature and humidity measuring devices, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Mr. Bennewitz claimed to have observed and filmed alien spacecraft activity over restricted areas of Kirtland, AFB and tried to interest Air Force officials in his sightings. Robert Hastings, a resident of the same city, spent some time with Bennewitz on two occasions after stories of Bennewitz's UFO encounters began to surface. Contrary to Moore's claims that Bennewitz had seen and filmed super- secret UFO-like craft over the Manzano Weapons Storage Area and the Coyote Canyon Test Site, Hastings found the films to be hoaxes so crude and poorly done as to be laughable. It was quite obvious, Hastings says, that one film was of several birds in flight (metaphorically appropriate, wouldn't you say?). During the screening, Bennewitz claimed the birds' flapping wings were alien spacecraft "force fields" moving up and down. Another film "looked like Bennewitz had thrown it on the floor and walked on it," Hastings added. The film was nothing more than a series of smudges, hair and other debris. A third film purportedly of a "green fireball" phenomenon as reported in one of Doty's bogus documents was found by Hastings to be somewhat drawn on the underside of the 8 mm film strip with a green magic marker.
Hastings, a compassionate and fair-minded person, quickly realized Bennewitz was a mentally disturbed man suffering from paranoid delusions revolving aound alien beings. At one point, Bennewitz showed Hastings print-outs of complete garble which he claimed were messages from the "aliens." Bennewitz interpreted the garble for Hastings, explaining that the aliens had tracked him from his hotel to Bennewitz's home, that they liked him and wanted to rendevous with him later that evening at a remote site. Hastings said thanks but no thanks. A long time friend of Bennewitz's has confirmed that Bennewitz has been repeatedly hospitalized by his family and treated for mental illness over the past decade, long before Moore had reportedly began working his alledged disinformational magic on Bennewitz.
For a better impression of Bennewitz's mental state, check out this description taken from an advertising flyer for Christa Tilton's 'The Bennewitz Papers, 'a book based upon his ramblings: "Bennewitz reported [that] horrid people began following him, breaking into his home to install wire taps, Air Force men showing up at his doorstep at all hours..he was being drugged and was convinced aliens were coming into his home and sticking him with needles. He became a frightened man. He also felt like the government was possibly behind some of the happennings."
There was probably thousands of people all over the country suffering from the same sort of paranoid delusions as Paul Bennewitz. What set Bennewitz apart was that he came into contact with an AFOSI agent named Sgt. Richard Doty.
"Falcon" Doty first surfaced during an attempt to sell a hoaxed incident about a pitched battle with aliens at Ellsworth AFB, South Dakota, where Doty had been stationed. Bob Pratt, armed with a legitimate looking report about the reported case that had been concocted and leaked to Doty, conducted a lengthy investigation for the 'National Enquirer' but failed to find even a shred of supporting evidence. Later, Doty began sending phony letters to APRO, trying to bait them in similar fashion. Then, while stationed at Kirtland AFB, New Mexico, Doty came into contact with Bennewitz as a result of Bennewitz's attempts to get Air Force officials to listen to his rantings about alien encounters.
While other Kirtland officials had politely declined to meet with Bennewitz, Doty apparently saw an opportunity to make hay with Bennewitz's bales. Doty even invited Jerry Miller, a former investigator with the Air Force's 4602nd Sq., the group that did legwork for Project Blue Book, to a meeting with Bennewitz. Miller came away convinced Bennewitz was nothing more than a mentally disturbed person, a "nut case," and advised Doty that he was wasting his time.
But devious Doty was not discouraged. He concocted reports incoporating some of Bennewitz's stories, adding his own embellishments, then sought out Bill Moore, whom he heard speaking about UFOs on a local radio station. The pair soon found a great deal in common: Doty was determined to make big money by concocting phony UFO stories and Moore was determined to get rich by exploiting the subject. In fact, Moore told Todd Zechel in early 1980 that "I'll bet you've heard that you can't make money off UFOs? Well, I proved that wrong!" Bruce Maccabee was present when Moore made this brag, but apparently did not see what dangers it foretold.
Moore showed some of Doty's reports during a documentary on UFOs produced by Ron Lakis, and later Barry Greenwood and Larry Fawcett of CAUS captured one of them on video tape freeze-frame, then submitted FOIA requests for the documents. Doty responded to the request by forwarding several "reports," which were dutifully reprinted in 'Clear Intent' , Greenwood and Fawcett's book. This process legitimized the "documents" and convinced even skeptical UFO advocates that Bennewitz had stumbled onto something important.
Shortly thereafter, members of CAUS took the bait Doty had dangled. Peter Gersten CAUS's attorney, made contact with Doty through Bill Moore and a meeting was arranged. There, Doty alluded to possessing other "hot" information on UFOs and subsequently offered to sell Gersten "documents," stating he needed money because his wife had recently divorced him and he owed legal fees. Gersten wisely declined the offer, fearing he was either being set up for criminal prosecution or that Doty was attempting a swindle.
Moore, the man who had resurrected the Roswell incident (a case for which the best explanation at that point seemed to be some sort of top secret constant altitude balloon project), began working with Doty on developing documents to support crashed saucer recoveries, knowing these would have a greater financial value than Bennewitz's "sightings." Documentary filmmaker Linda Howe was invited to Kirtland to meet with Doty, during which she was shown a purported "Presidential Briefing Paper" on crashed saucers that described four such incidents. Doty also regaled Howe with tales about captured aliens known as EBEs (Extraterrestrial Biological Entities), a term invented by Paul Bennewitz, the same person responsible for "greys," a 'classification' for little E.T.- type aliens now in common use.
Round and round we go…
Men go and come but Earth abides.
