How the Pentagon created the UFO community to protect military secrets
The creepy Paul Bennewitz story.
Among the documents leaked by Edward Snowden were images from a Powerpoint presentation called The Art of Deception. The presentation was part of the mentoring of intelligence operatives in the UK and US.
It details the minute mechanisms of deception, including decoys, distractions, astroturfing and the technique of swapping “the real for the false”. Images used as examples are the Arab spring, the US-backed uprising against Middle Eastern leaders, military deceptions like inflatable tanks and then, most notably, UFOs.
Have you ever asked yourself where the perception of aliens as little green men came from? Their flying saucers? Their distinct eyes? The documentary Mirage Men presents compelling evidence that UFO folklore was actually fabricated by the US government.
The documented history of Pentagon/CIA deception on UFOs is somehow not too well known, but is extremely instructive, revealing and interesting.
In recent years, the CIA have been open about their role in stirring up UFO conspiracy theories in order to conceal military technology from the public. In 2014, they tweeted this:
They’ve not always been this forthcoming with their role, though.
During the 1980s, rumours began spreading among UFO hunters that well-paid government agents took part in UFO summits and were prime sources of most of the information circulating in the community. Those alleged agents were UFO researchers Bill Moore and Richard Doty.
Unfazed, Moore partook in the 1989 MUFON Symposium to come clean while still defending his actions. In his speech, he admitted to being an “informant”, but denied having nefarious motives. He reiterated that he was a genuine researcher and that he was poor as a “church house mouse”.
Years later, both Moore and Doty would confess to being Air Force disinformation agents whose task was to disseminate UFO theories in order to protect US military technology secrets.
What Doty and Moore did was more sinister than merely lying to researchers. They had befriended a troubled researcher in the community, a man named Paul Bennewitz.
In December 1979, Bennewitz — equipped with an eight-millimeter movie camera — began filming the Manzano Weapons Storage Area at Kirtland Base, which at the time housed the largest cache of nuclear weapons components in the U.S.
Bennewitz had intercepted secret transmissions from a laser-based tracking system located at Kirtland. '
“The satellite messages were supposedly sent by laser light. The radio bursts were most likely a way to communicate with weapons or battlefield operations.”
Greg Bishop, author of Project Beta: The story of Paul Bennewitz, national security and the creation of a modern UFO myth.
The NSA then began a counter-intelligence operation on Bennewitz and set up surveillance in an empty townhouse across the street from him. In his clandestine role, Bill Moore “gifted” Bennewitz a computer to “aid” his UFO research. In reality, the computer was provided by the Air Force and its software was coded with an “alien language”.
You see, Bill Moore lated admitted that his job was to provoke a mental breakdown in Bennewitz by convincing him that not only was he spotting actual aliens, he was communicating with them through his computer too. Bennewitz went on to have a mental breakdown and was checked into a psychiatric facility. This is how Moore described his condition:
I watched Paul become systematically more paranoid and more emotionally unstable as he tried to assimilate what was happening to him. He had guns and knives all over his house, had installed extra locks on his doors, and he worried that “they” — meaning the aliens — were coming through his walls at night and injecting him with hideous chemicals which would knock him out for long periods of time. He told me he had no idea what “they” were doing with him while he was knocked out. He began to suffer increasing bouts of insomnia. Others took over the day-to-day operation of his business as he went through this. One day I watched him eat not a bite of his lunch while he chain-smoked 28 cigarettes in 45 minutes. I knew at that time that he was not far from a nervous collapse. His health had deteriorated, he had lost considerable weight, his hands shook as if from palsy, and he looked terrible’
Bennewitz died in 2003. His passing marked the end of a decades long clandestine effort that succeeded in convincing generations of Americans that sightings of cold war era military technology in reality were potentially extraterrestrial beings.
While this might be news to many Americans, to the financial backers of the UFO research community, it was evident already in 1999 that the whole thing was a fraud. Consider this email about Laurance Rockefeller and Prince Hans Adam II of Liechtenstein bankrolling the research:
After years of irrelevance and silence, the UFO discourse suddenly entered the mainstream with a frenzy earlier this year. After multiple viral sightings, Pentagon released statements saying they can’t rule out that the UFOs could be aliens.
This unleashed a craze in corporate media. Even so-called independent critical outlets like Breaking Points were swept up in the craze. Saagar Enjeti swore up and down that this time, this time, the Pentagon were telling the truth:
The narratives of the American regime are so insubstantiated and so paper-thin, they collapse at the first hint of inspection.
Is it really any surprise that the most militarized country in the world, whose military is larger than the next seven countries combined (most of whom are allies), a country drowning in drones and high speed aircrafts and stealth bombers, also just happens to have the most “UFO” sightings?
American exceptionalism is when you think that aliens are completely disinterested in less militarized parts of the world like Norway or Laos or Senegal or Bolivia, but love returning to Arizona and New Mexico and Washington DC every other year.
As our regime is gearing up for a new cold war against China and multiple potential proxy wars in Ukraine, Taiwan, Somalia, Niger and many other countries, consider the following:
If you spot what looks like the Pentagon testing and experimenting with new military technology and you the following day read a Pentagon press release stating that the video you took could be of actual aliens, just remember that you’re governed by clowns who are convinced that you’re even more silly than they are.
