Hello UFO buffs,

This series of messages will be long, dry in some areas, informative, speculative, humorous, intriguing and enlightening. I, personally, have suffered a 16 month campaign of net-abuse in another network called Fidonet. Excuse me, but I have learned alot through this experience, and want to share with you my suspicion that there are factions within our united states government, who take interest in what we discuss about ufos on the public nets. The bottom line conclusion that I have drawn, is that a group called the Aviary has people on the nets who work to disinform and misinform the readers. This Aviary group has ties to the Central Intelligence Agency. If you are unfamiliar with the Aviary, or even the notion of there being psychological operations perpetrated on these ufo conferences, then I advise you to read on. Otherwise, if you know of that which I speak, then the next paragraph is a succinct summary of what happened, and you can scan through the rest. ;)

In February 1993, I began to read the UFO conference in Fidonet, and noticed a man named Walter Bartoo who was expousing some different views on the ufo question. Soon, it became apparent that Walter, and anyone who held similiar views, were subject to ridicule in UFO. In March 1993, I created the SearchNet network, and the I_UFO conference for people who were used as whipping boys in the UFO conference. A year later, in May 1994, I added our I_UFO conference to Fidonet, and then the moderator of UFO and his friends came into our conference and started attacking Walter Bartoo. Seven Months later, I had BANNED all of those attackers, and I_UFO finally was able to evolve into a friendly discussion area for people who have had UFO related experiences ('experiencers'). Nine months have passed, since then, and still these attackers have been spewing propaganda against I_UFO, in the other ufo related conferences in Fidonet. They repeat, often, that they wish to somehow have I_UFO removed from fidonet altogether; of course, they cite my moderation of them, as good reason. Today, their campaign continues. Today, I want to tell you all about it, as this experience can be a lesson to all of us who are searching for answers to the UFO enigma. Our experience will show you, that from the very beginning, we were targeted by the Aviary, and that they wish to stop I_UFO, at all costs. Here then is our story:

This story will be told by a collage of people's messages, and my postings on this subject in the past, and two newsletters that I wrote and submitted to Fidonet's Fidonews. Contemporary comments by me, now, will be shown as GS>.

In the beginning....

 GS> Don Allen, is moderator and controller of the Fidonet
 GS> network's UFO conference. We call message conferences,
 GS> 'echos', on Fidonet. Fidonet is probably the second
 GS> largest echomail-type network, after the Internet's
 GS> usenet newsgroups.

GS> These messages from February 1993, will outline the GS> genesis of a new UFO paradigm on Don Allen's fidonet GS> UFO echo. They indicate an emerging IDEOLOGY that GS> gradually became totally unacceptable in the UFO echo. GS> Before I met Walter in the UFO echo in March, 1993, you GS> will see that he and others had already started to GS> network. Walter was working on ways to express his ufo GS> paradigm to the general population, in ways that they GS> could understand. I was a user in UFO who was GS> understanding Walter's approach and wanting to help GS> raise awareness also. You will notice that I found GS> Walter's BBS, downloaded and read his newsletters, and GS> defended him when people were asked to vote whether he GS> should share his ideas in Don Allen's UFO echo. You GS> will also see explanations of what Starseed are, and GS> their purpose. GS> When I look back, now, I can see how Walter, I, Scott GS> Scheffler, and others began to look like a threat to GS> the Aviary's paradigm lock on UFO. I do not think that GS> Don Allen was aware of this, even at that time. If Don GS> has been compromised in some way, it took place some GS> time between 1993 and 1994. As long as what Walter had GS> to say on the nets, was confined to the UFO echo where GS> he could be ridiculed and laughed to scorn, the GS> paradigm could control what ideas people would CONSIDER GS> on the UFO question. Experiencers have always been GS> picked on, in UFO echo, until, again, these days, they GS> are running another "EXPERIMENT". They cannot even GS> admit that they will not allow and protect discussions GS> by experiencers, instead they have to have moderator GS> approved, and limited experimental, "experiencer GS> threads". The atmosphere in UFO against experiencers is GS> so hostile, that they are relegated to one, tightly GS> controlled, thread. GS> So the conflict was always one of IDEOLOGY. It was GS> never a silly ego-competition of my echo is better than GS> your echo. It was always the claws of the Aviary GS> reaching into the nets to control what IDEAS, that GS> fidonet readers would be allowed to discuss. I_UFO was GS> created and maintained, totally OUT OF the Aviary's GS> control. GS> Here then, is the pre-history of the NEED for I_UFO on GS> fidonet. BTW, I learned alot by going over how it GS> unfolded.

Hi Glenda,

This should sound familar I came from the Pleiades. For I am
a Star Seed. It sounds like you have a very deep interest in
the Star Seed material.

After reading your post to human for Don Allen I understand
what file you seek. The channeler Tom Smith is a good friend
of mine who live here in Louisville too. The file is also on
my friend's BBS called the spirit. His name is Walter
Bartoo. His phone number is (704)297-5973. I will also get a
current copy of this and post it on my BBS (502)495-2380. I
would like to correspond with you some more. Have you ever
thought about setting up a BBS? I would be willing to help
you. Walter and I are working to set up a network called
StarNet for allowing Star Seed info and Astar Command info
to move about the world. I am also a channel for the Ashtar
Command and the Confederation of Planets. I have a computer
consulting business in Louisville. If interested I would
like to meet you. I am in Cincinnati quite regularly.

I would also like to thank Don, for many of his postings
have confirmed informations I had gotten elsewhere over the

I just wana make two points:

1) The law of free will, which was jokingly referred to as
the 'Prime directive', is a real one, which accounts for why
neither negative E.T.'s nor postiive ones have made a mass
landing on the white house lawn. Because of the free will
clause, the E.T.'s can only contact those who draw them.
Like attracts like. If your path is service to others,
knowing that other-selves are one with the self, then you
draw positive E.T.'s. If your path is service to self, with
domination over other-selves to serve self, then you draw
negative E.T.'s. This is the polarization (drawing people to
the two poles) that is going on with this UFO phenomenon.

2) This like attracts like idea, also works in reverse,
where unlike repels unlike. I think the reason that the
people involved with the postive E.T.'s do not feel
comfortable, or let me say also, do not feel 'led' to speak
more freely about their experiences, is because the
atmosphere here is repelling that expression. I have been on
other echoes where there is an easy atmosphere to bring in
this kind of info. You will notice the negative E.T.'s use
much more physical means of contact, through there physical
emissaries (negative E.T.'s in physically dense bodies) and
through the sharing of physical technologies. This is the
group most in this echo are curious about and investigating.
Whereas the positive E.T.'s make contact through mostly
non-physical means, through telepathy and similiar spiritual
mind contacts.

Therefore, given the two points above, I, personally, in my
opinion conclude that both the negative and positive E.T.'s
are participating in the UFO phenomenon on this planet. And
for this reason, people who are involved with postive E.T.'s
feel drawn to echo conferences like this one.

Best wishes,

I understand this part of your mesage. In my opinion, I
personally have obtained this foundation you mentioned. I
find I am able to understand where you and Scott S. are
coming from; completely. Because, however, I have as yet had
no 'contact' like you guys have had, then I would be able to
express some of these issues in other terms that some folks
can process. For example, I have a 13 year background in
Christian faith, so I could relate some of the information
you have been describing, in a way that Christians could
assimilate, thereby helping in their awakening. As they go
into search mode, they will draw more info to themselves of
the kind they can use and grow from.

I am a latecomer to this echo. Actually, I read in another
one that Don allen was moderator here, and I had been
enjoying his multiple-posts on other echos, and that 'drew'
me here. I was 1800+ messages behind! I am still catching
up, but wana say, that I DO wana read your posts, Walter. I
think I can assist, at times, with my own ideas, which
include some infos like the ones you are wanting to bring
out. I posted a message earlier, in which I tried to point
out that people who are involved with positive E.T.'s are
drawn to a conference like this, and they belong here also. 

I vote that you dont leave this echo.

Hi Glenda: You have access on the BBS. Was down last night
due to hardrive problems. Managed to salvage the works but a
slow format was the key with a safe cpbackup. Then found
another problem in the power supply that needed fixing my
fan quite due to dust buildup. All solved now but did order
a new power supply. All told got out six more megs then
before (Grin). Need to upgrade off this RLL drive it's
showing age and I need more memory. One hundred Megs doesn't
get it around here as the system eats much memory in all it

Seems being away left us volunarable and is the time to
attack the system. This makes six crashes in twelve months.

Saw all your messages and we look forward to exchanging

maybe I can answer your question from my understanding of
the term. Simply put, Star - seed, is a human whose genetic
makeup (DNA) includes that which originated from beings from
a star other than Earth. I think. Anyways, the result is,
that at some point in the human's life, he/she becomes aware
of realities other than the one we take for granted as
'normal' for humans. These realities can manifest in many
ways, such as memories, visions, dreams, telepathic
communications, spiritual experiences, knowings, and/or a
feeling that your life here is for a specific purpose or

At this point in time, it may be possible that many of the
starseed are coming of age in order to fulfill their
missions, which principally are to bring unconditional love
to this planet.

I hope this helps.

Steve Jones Sees Psy-ops Coming...

Subject: reality changes

               +-John Baker----------------------------------+
               |    On 3/11/93 STEVE JONES was saying to YOU:|

+-Steve Jones------------------------------------------------------------+
|     I agree with you that what we may be seeing is the beginings of a  |
| Second Inquisition, and I feel that it is the result of a direct threat|
| to "duly authorized authority," aka The Sacred Cows.  People who are in|
| a position of being designated as "authorities" on a subject are indeed|
| treatened when someone questions what they are saying.  It is not a    |
| matter of talking logically.                                           |

+-John Baker----------------------------------------------------------------+
|believe that I have seen changes of reality occur and have questioned my   |
|sanity because of it.  Is that what all this UFO stuff is about anyway, a  |
|change of reality, or the way we perceive reality?  If those in power would|
|lose because of a change in what we think of as reality, then they do      |
|anything to hide the truth from the people.                                |

I agree that this is part of what it is all about. The
reality is changing, as more people become informed
(awakened) about what is going on. As long as most of the
world remains duped and under control, the reality created
for them exists, but now that is a changing. People are
'knowing' a different reality and it is breaking up the
false holographic image of the world that has been created
for us. I think you hit it right on, and this point is one
of the ones that Walter Bartoo is trying to make. He wants
more people to wake up, and for those people to contribute
to the new awakening realities.


 GS> Steve Jones has always publicly posted his insights of
 GS> psy-ops on the nets. He, correctly calls it a second
 GS> inquisition, and he saw it coming, before I did. Yet,
 GS> Steve, in misunderstandings between Clark Hathaway and
 GS> me, later, seemed to have sided with the inquisitors
 GS> themselves. Steve is still welcome here in I_UFO.

 GS> And Walter has been consistent in making his points for
 GS> the last two years; all he needed was a FORUM where he
 GS> could do so, and where people could feel comfortable in
 GS> discussing the issues that Walter raises. I_UFO has
 GS> become that forum, not only for Walter, but for all of
 GS> you. Only you can preserve the forum from the
 GS> machinations of the Aviary, who will stop at nothing to
 GS> remove I_UFO and/or it's moderators.

I_UFO STILL Under Attack...

 GS> The reason that I chose to digress into this issue of
 GS> whether this I_UFO echo should exist or not, or whether
 GS> I or Walter Bartoo should be allowed to moderate I_UFO,
 GS> is that, still there is a REAL effort to either remove
 GS> I_UFO from fidonet or remove I_UFO's moderators. The
 GS> leader of this effort has always repeated these goals,
 GS> and is actively recruiting support in fidonet's
 GS> Z1_BACKBONE echo (where sysops and moderators hang
 GS> out), and where there are proposals to create some kind
 GS> of ECHO-REVIEW-BOARD, which MAY be given power to
 GS> remove echos or their moderators. This proposed board
 GS> may only be able to make SUGGESTIONS against echos and
 GS> moderators, or be lobbied to place it's stamp of
 GS> approval or disaproval against echos or moderators.
 GS> Whether you choose to believe that this is going on or
 GS> not, I cannot ignore the real threat that this has on
 GS> the PEOPLE who read fidonet echos. The people are the
 GS> targets of this proposed censorship, therefore, the

Howdy Kortron,

Sorry it took so long for me to reply, I was WAY behind on
my mail. Also, I had a surgery on 3/1/93, and been
installing, configuring, and all else on getting my BBS
straight. I ran a BBS for 4 yrs b4 from 1987 to 1991.

Also, I will be sending you a monthly donation, as soon as I
setup my electronic bill program to send you a check. All I
ask in return is that you cash the check in a timely manner,
you know what I mean. You dont have to send the paper
newsletter, I am fine reading the online version.

As to your quote above, you seem to indicate that something
happened, is happening, will happen, and I dunno what you
are referring to. I can say that I have not been on my PATH
since before my operation. I have been caught up in worldly
stuff, mostly the BBS (it was almost an obsession b4, thats
why I burnt out and took the dar thing down.) But I put up
my BBS this time for folks to get spiritual texts and
conferences. I have a lot of em hooked up, in about 5 or 6
nets already. You are welcome to think about using my BBS as
part of any network that may come about (especially with
these EC's (earth changes i.e. snow) happening all around.)

Lemme know a good time to call u voice this weekend.

 +-Don Allen----------------------------------------------------------------+
 |My own recomendation to you & Walter is to ... create your own            |
 |echo, follow the Fido guidelines to placing it on the backbone & then have|
 |it listed in the 'Elist' (Echo list) so as to it's availability.          |

And so, now I may plug a new network, called SEARCHNET. It
has an echo called I_UFO, meaning Identified and
Unidentified Flying objects. It will allow some of the
discussions that are now off-topic in this echo. Anyone
interested in carrying it and other SearchNet Echoes, may
FREQ SEARCH from 1:330/201, or call XBN BBS at
1-508-586-6977 and download the info packet or the echoes in
QWK format. 

Once the echo is moving with lotsa traffic, we may be able
to get it on the Fidonet backbone, as Don Allen has

I hope this ad was within the rules, since it is offering
another place to discuss UFO and IFO.

Part of the reason that SearchNet was created, and has an
IUFO conference which allows the fringe discussions. If you
want a Sysop in your area to carry Searchnet, you can put
your money where your mouth is, so to speak, :) and call and
download SEARCHNT.ZIP. It is the information and application
packet for Searchnet. It is about 22K. You could upload it
to your local sysops, and let them decide if they wana carry
some of the echoes. The BBS # is 508-586-6977. Can DL on
first call.

Another idea I was contemplating, is ask your sysop to list
the echoes in a system news message, and as his users if
they are interested. That way he wouldnt be blindly adding
the expense of carrying another network, without at least an
indication of his users' interest in it.

The Aviary, the Aquarium, and Eschatology

    by Vince Johnson

Admittedly, a lot of what follows is based on rumor, hearsay and
circumstantial evidence. Much is derived from numerous phone calls
from Dan Smith, whose religious beliefs regarding the UFO phenomenon
have induced a messianic zeal to "spread the Word."

These calls have provided a flurry of information on what I have
previously termed "fringe" beliefs, as well as providing the names and
backgrounds of the birds who comprise the Aviary. According to Dan,
who undoubtedly is privy to a wealth of accurate, though not widely
known UFO information, this data is being released through him due to
the grave concern by high government officials about impending
metaphysical catastrophe - the eschaton, or the end of the world.

Mr. Smith first came to my attention after the "Aquarium Conspiracy"
article (see inset) was disseminated to computer bulletin board
systems in the Spring of '93. In this article, Smith and Rosemary
Ellen Guiley, directors of the Center for North American Crop Circle
Studies, warned of an "eschatological emergency, "the reaction of
various organizations--both inside and outside the government, and
their attempt to establish a network of spiritually advanced
individuals, the "Aquarium," to assist the Aviary in dealing with this

-- inset --

The "Aquarium Conspiracy" by Dan Smith and Rosemary Ellen Guiley

"In the beginning there was eschatology--the branch of theology
dealing with the end times. Dan, having spent many years first
studying physics and then metaphysics, came to the conclusion that the
scientists have been looking at the world upside down. Mind, not
matter, is the foundation for all realities. Moreover, the materialist
paradigm was in danger of imminent collapse, being subverted on the
inside by its own contradictions, and on the outside by the growing
body of evidence for the paranormal. Creating and maintaining a
reality is no easy game. It requires a lot of magic, and a lot of
conscious critters like ourselves who are pretty good at collective
self-deception. Fortunately-- or perhaps unfortunately--our particular
reality game has about reached its natural conclusion, and we are
waking up to the fact that mind and matter are not separate. We are
undergoing an exciting but stressful revolution in our collective
consciousness. This revolution, or global spiritual emergency, will
bring upheavals and overloads in our global consciousness that will
impact the material Earth for better or worse, and may quickly get out
of control. We also will be opening up to other realities that will be
impacting us as well. Our present very tidy sense of reality and its
boundaries is due to become much more fluid and permeable. Every
spiritual tradition takes very seriously its prophesies about the end
of the world, but for the first time we are seeing these prophesies
turning into believable predictions of earth and reality changes. That
is how Dan fell from physics into eschatology. After experiencing
numerous slammed doors among his former scientific colleagues, he
decided that the most logical place to find fellow eschatologists
would be in various intelligence agencies and among investigators of
the paranormal.

 Dan next addressed how to communicate about the
eschaton. Even a small hint that the government is worried about the
end of the world might start a chain reaction of panic, which could
possibly serve as a trigger for the eschaton. On the other hand,
people inside the government might be wanting to set up a kind of
civil defense network vis a vis the eschaton, and so they would be
looking for people on the outside who could much more freely network
among the general public. An important link in the communication chain
is what has become known as the Aviary. This is the final link next to
the public network, and so it must be heavily disguised by its own
surrealistic smoke screen. The Aviary functions best by amplifying
people's own misconceptions about the paranormal. It does this by
helping to overinflate individual pieces of the puzzle so that
particular investigators get pushed further into their own blind
alleys. People are encouraged to be so distracted by the trees that
they fail to see the forest. This cacophony by people looking for
truth in all the strangest places provides an excellent cover for the
deadly serious business of clearing the decks and battening down the
hatches for the eschaton event. It is like a Manhattan Project going
on behind the scenes of alien grays and praying mantises having sex
with humans. However, this eschaton conspiracy is being orchestrated
by higher powers, and we don't mean the Committee of 300. Very few of
the people even near the center of the orchestration have a clear
picture of what is coming down, but they do know that something is
coming and that they will have front row seats. The Manhattan Project
relative to the eschaton is a global civilian network of people who
will serve as a lightning rod for the cosmic energies coming in during
the consciousness revolution. They will be looking to channel these
energies into expanded realities. Thus, they will provide a degree of
protection for those people who can find their places alongside the
network. Outside of the network there will be greater levels of trauma
and confusion. The pieces of the network are already in place, the
remaining task is to properly activate and link the pieces into a
critical mass of awareness. This last step is now underway. This is
how an Aviary helps to spawn an Aquarium, and how birds learn to swim.
The Aquarium is our business, and we are working to reach people who
are ready to be activated in the consciousness revolution."

I was intrigued after reading the "Aquarium Memo" because it implied
that the authors had cultivated sources within the intelligence
community. The only question was whether this information was accurate
or bogus. I drafted a response and uploaded it to Don Allen, moderator
for the FIDO UFO conference, requesting that he forward it to Dan
Smith. Several days later, I received the first of many calls from

Since Smith had alluded to his close contacts with the Aviary, most of
my questions centered around this mysterious group of alleged UFO
insiders comprised of scientists, military personnel, and inteligence
analysts. Dan's primary contact with this group is "Pelican" who
reportedly mans the "Wierd Desk" (UFOs,etc) at CIA. While Pelican's
main job with the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology is to
monitor foreign technological developments, Pelican also tracks
millennial/eschatological communities, "entering a twilight zone where
psychic techniques are being generated by humans and other entities,"
says Smith.

According to Smith, UFOs are primarily a psychological/metaphysical
phenomenon which are both preparing us and pressuring us to develop
our own psi abilities. Not that UFOs are a single type of entity,
Smith asserts that there are "powers and principalities" at work --
presumably supernatural entities like angels and demons.

Furthermore, he said that a radical program of parapsychological
research and development is currently underway near Los Alamos, New
Mexico. This group's development of psychokinesis, and psychotronics
(a term used to denote psychic warfare techniques) represents a danger
of eschatological proportions. "These techniques have been available,
but controlled, throughout history. Now, other entities are forcing
the issue," said Smith.

During the course of our first conversation, Smith was unable to
provide much proof of his claims. He reported that his governmental
sources "hinted at" an eschatological emergency. To prove the evil
intent of the entities involved, he referred to reports of human
mutilations in the Amazon which have been officially attribbuted to
drug dealers, but according to his sources, were committed by these
evil entities. When I asked why the CIA was interested in eschatology,
he replied that the ramifications of the eschaton event represented a
serious threat to national security, and thus, fell into the parview
of the intelligence agencies.

The Aviary

Dan proceeded to call me regularly. Each call provided tantalizing
snippets of information -- some simply incredible at first hearing,
but with confirmation on some of the data coming in from disparate
sources all across the country. Naturally, my curiosity centered
around the identities and activities of the Aviary. I suspect that
many believe the Bird People to be cogs in a giant conspiracy to
manage the public's perception of UFOs. Not necessarily so, according
to Smith. Far from being a well-funded, omnipotent secret society of
the guardians of UFO data, the Aviary is nothing more than an ad hoc
group of highly-placed "UFO buffs."

Initially, the factor that seemed most important was that Pelican was
being so forthcoming -- presumably with the knowledge and consent of
his superiors at CIA.  This in itself forced me to conclude that there
are two possible motives for all this apparent glasnost:

1. There is indeed an eschatological emergency as described by Dan
Smith, i.e. fulfillment of biblical prophesy with attendent
catastrophes; and/or

2. There is a new twist to the ol' UFO debunking game, capitalizing on
new-age mysticism and millennial "apocophilia."

Frankly, I lean towards the second explanation. After all, Smith
himself described the Aviary as "amplifying people's own
misconceptions about the paranormal. It does this by helping to
overinflate individual pieces of the puzzle so that particular
investigators get pushed further into their own blind alleys." I've
personally been occupied by this ongoing saga for many months -- a
"blind alley?" I wish I knew, but in either case, Pelican's
involvement in this affair raises the ante significantly.

Has something changed? Could we really be facing biblical "End Times?"
As I mentioned previously, I would have laughed-off such suggestions a
few months ago. However, Smith's references to "out of control"
psychotronic research proved to be more substantive than I first

Who is in The Aviary

The Aviary is believed to be comprised of:

Bruce Maccabee (Seagull) - Well-known Naval photograhic expert who
verified the authenticity of the Gulf Breeze photos, a MUFON
consultant and member of the Board of Directors of the Fund for UFO

Hal Puthoff, PhD. (Owl) - Physicist with the Institute for Advanced
Research in Austin, Texas who specializes in Zero-Point Energy, a
quantum phenomenon that could provide "free energy." Puthoff was once
involved in remote-viewing experiments at the Stanford Research

Dale Graff (Raven) - Performed contract oversight for the DIA at
Wright Patterson AFB. Most recently, Graff was the chief of the DIA's
Defense Technology/Special department. Rumored to be an abductee, and
involved in "black magic" and psychotronic programs at Los Alamos, but
fired recently by DIA. Smith says that Graff is the head of the
"military" UFO working group at Los Alamos.

Jack Vorona (bird name unknown) - Vorona is apparently the most covert
of all the Birds. He is believed to have been a liason between Capitol
Hill and Los Alamos. Was once involved in Project Sleeping Beauty, an
attempt to disable enemy troops using electromagnetic radiation.
Vorona has recently "vanished," and his present whereabouts are

Richard Doty (Falcon) - Former AFOSI agent. Directly involved in the
Bennewitz affair, and the attempt to funnel UFO information (or
disinformation) concerning UFO briefing documents for the President to
Linda Moulton Howe. Allegedly responsible for leaking bogus UFO
reports while in AFOSI at Kirtland AFB. Currently employed by the New
Mexico state police stationed in Dulce, New Mexico.

Christopher "Kit" Green MD, PhD. (Bluejay) - Pelican's predecessor at
the "Wierd Desk" at CIA.  According to Smith, Green at one time had
autopsy reports and photos of a UFO that crashed in a foreign country.
Dr. Green is currently the chief of the Biomedical Sciences Dept. for
General Motors. The CIA awarded him the National Intelligence Medal
for his work on a classified project during the period 1979 to 1983.

Robert Collins (Condor) - Former Captain, USAF. Involved in the
Bennewitz affair, and probably participated in the scheme (with
Richard Doty) to release UFO information/ disinformation to Linda
Moulton Howe at Kirtland AFB.

Ernie Kellerstraus (Hawk) - While working at Wright Patterson AFB in
the '70s, he along with Bob Collins and Dale Graff are said to have
supplied information to William Moore. Kellerstraus is rumored to have
lived with an alien for a while (?), and is probably the source for
the story concerning the aliens' preference for "strawberry ice

Scott Jones (Chickadee) - Well-connected, well-funded (by Laurence
Rockefeller) head of the Human Potential Foundation. Former aid to
Sen. Claiborne Pell, who has had a long-standing interest in UFOs and
the paranormal. Jones is a MUFON Consultant with numerous highly
placed government sources who consistently finds "no interest by
government in UFOs."

Bill Moore - (bird name unknown) This former Minnesota school teacher
may have initiated a new regime in regards to ufology by the
publication of "The Roswell Incident." This in itself may have been
the single event that began the stripping away of decades of
well-guarded UFO secrecy. His involvement in the Aviary seems to be
either one of active coordination of the other Birds, or simply as a
dupe, such as in the Bennewitz affair.

John Alexander (Penquin) - Former colonel in Army Intelligence
(INSCOM). Rumored to be involved in the Army's UFO research. Member of
the board of directors of Psi Tech. Currently, head of "non-lethal"
weapons program (see "Secret Conference" article) at Los Alamos. Said
to be briefing Vice President Gore on the UFO phenomenon and psi

"Pelican," PhD - Pelican is a physicist with the CIA's Directorate of
Science and Technology, who mans the "Wierd Desk" (UFOs, etc) at CIA.

Apparently, it is Pelican who provided the bulk of the information
that Smith tirelessly passed on. Smith says that Pelican has received
some heat from his superiors for becoming so visible due to the AIR #1
\report on Bruce Maccabee's relationship to the CIA.


Many suspect that John Alexander is the "colonel" referred to in
Howard Blum's recent book, "Out There". In this book, Blum described a
group of remote viewers in the Pentagon who frequently encountered
UFOs in their psychic "sorties" to locate Soviet submarines. Alexander
seems to have an extremely eclectic background -- he received a PhD.
in Thanatology (the study of death and near-death experiences) from
Georgetown University under the tutelage of the celebrated Dr.
Elisabeth Kubler-Ross. Apparently, Alexander is a "mind-control"
junkie, having studied everything from Silva Mind Control, to a stint
in a Buddhist monastery.

When the National Research Council issued its findings that there was
no evidence of paranormal phenomena, Alexander wrote a critique of the
report that was both passionate and eloquent. In this rebuttal, he
compared the report's apparent a priori conclusions to the Condon
Commission's report on UFOs. Interestingly, Alexander is widely
believed to have been instrumental in the Army's UFO Intelligence
activities, and is rumored to have assisted in the investigation of
the Cash/Landrum UFO-injury case.

In addition to his Psi-Tech work, Alexander currently heads a research
project at Los Alamos, New Mexico, focused on "non-lethal" military
technology. "Non- lethal" in the conventional parlance refers to
methods of eroding an enemy's war-making capabilities without the
excessive death and destruction that could possibly harden an enemy's
resolve to fight, or cause a moral revulsion in our own population
that could weaken political resolve to continue a war until U.S.
military objectives could be achieved. Wiping-out enemy radars and
communication electronics through powerful electromagnetic pulses
(EMP) is one type of non-lethal weapon, spraying roads and railroad
tracks with a super-slippery lubricant, thereby paralyzing
transportation, is another.

Alexander has been mentioned almost synonomously with non-lethal
weapons technology in many mainstream news reports, including a
lengthy piece in the Wall Street Journal. He is also rumored to be a
candidate for an Undersecretary of Defense appointment in the Clinton

Surprisingly, Army Intelligence RV operations has become married,
literally, with some prominent figures in UFO abductions research.
Albert Stubblebine is now married to Dr. Rima Laibow, whose scholarly
paper on the abduction phenomenon was the first (as far as I know) to
address the issue in the mental-health community. John Alexander is
now married to the former Victoria Lacas, Dr. Laibow's close

This list of strange bedfellows gets even stranger when you add the
name of CSETI founder and head honcho, Steven Greer, M.D., into the
mix. As it turns out, Greer, whose modus operandi incorporates shining
blinking lights and laser beams at UFOs in the hopes of establishing
communications with the ufonauts, was trained in remote viewing by Ed
Dames. In fact, it was Dr. Greer who introduced Stubblebine at the
Denver symposium.

So, what we have so far is that several former high-ranking military
personnel (Stubblebine, Alexander,and Dames) who were involved in
"psychic" research while in Army Intelligence, and who are now
actively involved in the UFO research community. Further, Dames has
staked his company's professional reputation on the prediction that an
overt contact with aliens will occur in the Four Corners area by
August of 1993. Naturally, August came and went without incident.

One of ufology's more cogent analysts, who is convinced of the reality
of remote viewing based on his own personal search, told me that
Dames' activities had resulted in the successful discrediting of both
UFOs and remote viewing. Was this the plan all along or is Dames just
a charlatan?
