The ET Question - Do We Really Have A Need To Know?

Source: By Jim Hickman

6th May 2000

I have spent several sleepless nights since first researching this material. I feel it's content is so important that I must publish this with an advisory, as parts of this report are very graphic, again I apologize, but this is composed of true reports, so here goes: Jim Those in power say "NO" and I think I know why they want to keep their secret a little longer. I think I am beginning to understand why they can't reveal the "truth". This report will show that the Air Force has known for decades that some aliens are just not friendly. Some are here, as one of my favorite old Twilight Zone shows puts it, "To Serve Man" need I say more? I will show from previously secret Air Force files, reports from reliable eyewitnesses and a special report from my friend, Don Ecker he calls "The Human Mutilation Factor" that it seems that cattle aren't the only things some aliens are looking for:. People occasionally report feeling pain or receiving an injury during a UFO encounter or abduction. Physical effects include eye irritation, sunburn, skin cuts, and sickness. After the experience, witnesses may have nightmares and feel anxious, and they may undergo personality changes or changes in their beliefs about important life issues. Witnesses, especially abductee's, claim later UFO encounters and other experiences with the paranormal, such as poltergeist activity or the development of psychic powers. Some people are now reporting "Alien Implants"; an expert in the field is Dr. Roger Leir, (visit site) who has removed several objects from people who have had the abduction experiences. I received a report from him just the other day: "I have been very busy with the surgery that was performed on the 5th of this month. We were able to remove another cantaloupe seed type implant. We also were able to investigate numerous other aspects of this case including some of the physiological aspects and in addition were able to look into some of the electronic emissions coming from the object." Some of Dr. Leir's findings are quite remarkable. "The findings of these implant surgeries are highly unusual," reported Dr. Leir. "In all these cases, there was virtually no inflammatory response." This is not the usual finding in foreign tissue reactions. Normally, foreign bodies embedded in tissues result in some type of acute or chronic inflammatory response, and may include fibrosis and cyst formation. Such was not the case here. The pathology reports of the first two surgeries revealed that the metallic objects were encased in a very dense, tough, grey membrane consisting of proteinaceous coagulum, hemoseridin and pure keratin. More simply, blood protein and skin cells that are usually found in the superficial layer of the skin. The tough, biological "cocoons" encasing the implants were also found to contain nerve proprioceptors - nerve and pressure cells of the wrong tissue type for that part of the body. These implant cocoons also fluoresced a bright green color in the presence of an ultraviolet light source. The implants from the two women from the second set of surgeries did not exhibit metallic properties like the implants from the first set of surgeries. In fact, the spheroid, whitish objects did not contain the tough, biological outer jackets, or fluoresce from a UV light source. These types of implants (possibly biological) also lacked the expected inflammatory response, according to the pathology reports. The crystalline-like object excised from the foot in the most recent surgery, also lacked the tough, grey, outer membrane and had virtually no inflammatory response, as in the other implant surgeries. Test results from the first set of implants revealed that the lammelar, needle shaped metallic objects in question are basically meteoric in origin, containing at least eleven different elements. Alien Implants are just the tip of this story. UFO researcher Don Ecker reports that over the years, there have been numerous cases where the phenomenon has figured into human deaths, but as a rule, most cases have been officially ruled accidental. He continues in his report, "the matter of either overt or covert hostility on the part of UFOs has always been treated warily by serious researchers. On the one hand, if the enigma is hostile, then several questions must be faced. What if anything should the powers in authority tell the public? Is the government capable of handling a threat of this type? Is the public ready to face an issue as potentially terrifying as a "possible threat from somewhere else?" Don has a good point! Do we really want to know this kind of secret? I sure don't. I have to sleep at night! That's one secret that the government can keep! He states, "I had been warned by a prominent Ufologist, that there was a lid "screwed down tighter than you would believe in regards to human mutes." Continuing, "In one of the less well known cases, during the mid 1950's, a military jet interceptor was observed on radar being "absorbed" into a UFO over the Great Lakes. No trace of pilot or aircraft was ever found. In another case reported in the excellent work "Clear Intent" was the case of the "Cuban MIG Incident". In this case a Cuban MIG was locking on his weapons radar when the aircraft exploded in mid-air. The wing man was certain that the UFO had fired some type of weapon, but other than the jet exploding, no other smoke, flame or other obvious weapon firing was observed." Don states "I was once again speaking to Don Mason, when he informed me that the investigator that had been assigned to the above mentioned case had come across a very mysterious death of a man back in 1979. According to the report, two hunters in the Bliss and Jerome area of Idaho had literally stumbled across the nude body of a man that had been hideously mutilated. The body was in the literal middle of nowhere, nude except for a pair of underpants, his sexual organs had been removed, his lips sliced off, and several other classic mutilation cuts. Although he was in very rugged country, his bare feet were not marked as if he had walked in that terrain, but yet no other tracks, animal or human were evident anywhere. After the police were notified, an intensive search was mounted, and miles away, the mans possessions were recovered, yet no one yet knows how the body ended up where it was found, or even more importantly, what happened to him. It should be noted that this area also had over the years, many unexplained UFO reports and cattle mutilations." Dr. J. Allen Hynek has stated that on several occasions, he specified that he wanted no mention of the dozens of human abductions that they had already uncovered at that time, Hynek was afraid of the adverse publicity if word of this aspect leaked out to the public. Another good example of a very unkind alien encounter is the case of Sgt. Jonathan P Louette, who was stationed at White Sands missile test range in1956 and whose mutilated body was found on the range three days after an Air Force major had witnessed his abduction by a "disk shaped" object. Louette's genitals had been removed, his rectum cored out with surgical precision and his eyes excised. I have copies of the photos of the body in this case that were given to me by Col. Steve Wilson. However, I find them too disturbing to post here. I had my own sighting at White Sands as many of you know, I'm just glad they left me alone: Moving on, one of the most famous UFO sightings resulting in injuries to witnesses involved two women, Betty Cash and Vicki Landrum, and Mrs. Landrum's grandson, Colby, as they drove along a deserted Texas road during December 1980. In front of them, they saw a huge, brilliant, diamond-shaped object with flames shooting out from the bottom. Cash stopped the car and got out to have a better look at the UFO. The object radiated intense heat that softened the dashboard of her car. Terrified, Cash returned to the car and with the others, watched the UFO move away. As it did so, a squadron of helicopters appeared and surrounded the UFO. The witnesses followed the object and the helicopters until they disappeared in the distance. By the time the three reached home, all were feeling ill. Within a few hours, they developed sunburn-like blisters, nausea, and diarrhea. Betty Cash's symptoms were the most severe, and she eventually sought medical treatment and was hospitalized as a burn victim. Her doctor concluded Cash was exhibiting symptoms of radiation sickness. The witnesses later sued the United States government, claiming it was responsible for their injuries. (They had identified the helicopters as Chinook twin-rotor helicopters used by the U.S. Army.) Their lawsuit was unsuccessful because they could never prove the UFO or the helicopters were devices owned and operated by the American government. Some say that Aliens are friendly, gentle and kind, but I would ask you to consider the Mantell case. The Air Force wants you to believe that Capt. Tom Mantell had seen Venus, and then he had intercepted a weather balloon! We know better don't we? I have included the report for those not familiar with this incident. January 7, 1948 Captain Thomas Mantell (USAF) crashes in his F-51 Mustang while allegedly pursuing a UFO. On the afternoon of January 7, 1948, a control tower operator at Godman Air Force Base, in Kentucky, answered the telephone. It was an innocent enough action, surely, but was nevertheless destined to set a series of events in motion that ultimately would lead one man to his death. The call was from an officer of the Kentucky State Patrol, who wanted to know if Godman was aware of any unusual aerial activity in the vicinity. Godman knew of no activity in the area, and a quick check with Wright-Patterson AFB Flight Service in Ohio confirmed that there were no scheduled flights. Nevertheless, the state patrol was back on the phone to Godman about twenty minutes later, reporting that individuals in Owensboro and Irvington, Kentucky, were seeing a strange object in the sky. This unidentified object was described by the witnesses as 250-300 feet in diameter, moving rapidly in a westerly direction. At precisely 1:45 in the afternoon, the tower operators at Godman were seeing the object. Certain that it was not a balloon they called flight operations. Soon, word of the strange object in the sky over Kentucky had spread across the base, and the base commander, Colonel Hix, came to the control tower to see the object for himself. Around 2:30, the men in the tower were beginning to talk about possible courses of action to deal with the anomaly in the sky above. By happenstance, at that very moment, four F-51 Mustangs were approaching the base. The tower operator spoke to the flight leader, a Captain Thomas Mantell, and asked him to have a look at the object. Mantell agreed, and he and two of his wingmen turned their airplanes around and headed for the object, while the fourth pilot, his craft low on fuel, continued on to land at its base. The planes labored upwards to 10,000 feet, with Mantell pulling out in the lead. At 2:45 PM, Mantell radioed the tower: "I see something above and ahead of me, and I'm still climbing. " Moments later, one of his wingmen was overheard radioing Mantell: "What in the hell are you looking for?" Some UFO researchers claim that Mantell radioed back, saying "I've sighted the thing. It looks metallic, and it's tremendous in size..." The tower operators, according to Captain Edward Ruppelt's account in The Report on Unidentified Flying objects, never agreed among themselves that Mantell actually said this. However, they did agree that Mantell said, a few seconds later, "It's above me and I'm gaining on it. I'm going to 20,000 feet." Shortly after that last transmission Mantell's F-51 came hurtling down from the sky, and spread itself across the landscape. At 3:52 P.M., a telephone at Godman Air Force Base rang. Captain Thomas Mantell was dead. The opinion of the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC) at that time was given as follows: It is the [ATIC] opinion that Captain Mantell lost consciousness due to oxygen starvation, the aircraft being trimmed continued to climb until increasing altitude caused a sufficient loss of power for it to level out. The aircraft then began a turn to the left due to torque and as the wing drooped so did the nose until the aircraft was in a tight diving spiral. The uncontrolled descent resulted in excessive speed causing the aircraft to disintegrate. It is believed that Captain Mantell never regained consciousness. This is born out by the fact that the canopy lock was still in place after the crash, discounting any attempt to abandon the aircraft. The UFO was in no way directly responsible for this experienced pilot conducting high altitude flight without the necessary oxygen equipment. The Air Force posited that Mantell had spied Venus, then at 33 above the southern horizon. The Venus explanation has been frowned upon by a host of UFOlogists, most notably the late J. Allen Hynek, who aptly noted that, on the date in question, Venus was only six times brighter than the surrounding sky. While this sounds like an impressive measure, in practice, an object only six times brighter than the surrounding sky is very difficult to see. It most certainly does not rate as a conspicuous sight. Therefore, I am inclined to side with those skeptical of the Venus explanation. However, that Mantell may have chased a Skyhook balloon, then a classified naval research project, is a distinct possibility. Skyhook balloons were, in fact, being released from Clinton County Air Force base in Ohio around that time, and a wind plot for January 7, 1948, revealed that the track of such a balloon on that day would have carried it near Godman Field in Kentucky. In a strange occurrence Skyhook plays several roles in Ufology, did you know that Major Donald Keyhoe of NICAP fame wrote about Project Skyhook in New Mexico, and it was invaded by UFO's. This was later made into a movie called, "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers" back in the early 50's. Unfortunately, there appears to be some confusion as to whether a Skyhook was actually launched from Clinton County AFB on January 7, 1948. In Brad Steiger's synopsis of the Air Force UFO projects, commentary is found to the effect that " was subsequently determined that on the date of the Godman sighting a balloon was released by the Navy from Clinton County Airport in Ohio." I would say that Capt Mantell had a close encounter with a non-friendly alien. Another report of an attacking alien comes in from the Cleveland Press, thanks to investigator DANIEL WILSON of Painesville, Ohio for this story: "Saucer Attacked Me, Pilot Declares" The Cleveland Press, Wednesday, July 30, 1952 By Charles Tracy, Aviation Editor Within minutes after his hair-raising experience, I talked to a veteran Air Force pilot who excitedly reported that his F-51 fighter plane was attacked repeatedly by a flying saucer. The incident, never before revealed to the public, occurred a year ago at 8000 feet over Augusta, Ga., on a warm, sunny, clear day. The pilot's own startling story is in the files in Washington. I never saw the official report, and in repeating the pilot's conversation with me, I am violating no security. The pilot was First Lieut. George Kinman of Birmingham, Ala., veteran of seven year's service, including action in World War II. He was stationed at Lawson Air Force Base, Columbus, Ga., with the 117th Tactical Reconnaissance Wing. I was assistant wing operations officer. (Charles Tracy, an Air Force captain in World War II, was called back into service in 1950, was discharged five months ago.) Our outfit was preparing for overseas duty and we were running a lot of practice missions. We sent photo planes out to get pictures of bridges, airfields, etc. At times we would dispatch pilots over the harbors to count the ships and report. This was to test their accuracy in visual reconnaissance. It was while returning from one of these practice missions that Lieut. Kinman had the daylights scared out of him. He was over Augusta, about 80 miles or 20 minutes flying time from home base. "I was cruising at about 250 mph," he told me after making a somewhat shaky landing in his Mustang, a single-engine job equipped with cameras but no guns. "All of a sudden I noticed something ahead, closing in on me head- on," Kinman reported. "Before I could take evasive action - before I even thought of it, in fact - this thing dipped abruptly and passed underneath, just missing my propeller." He described "the thing" as "definetely of disc shap... white... pretty thick... it looked like an oval... it was about twice as big as my plane... it had no visible protrusions like motors, guns, windows, smoke or fire." Kinman said he immediately turned around but couldn't see anything.(The F-51 Mustang had a bubble canopy which affords excellent vision in all directions.) Within 15 seconds, he estimated, the disc came directly at him again and once more dipped suddenly at the last possible moment to avoid a collision. This happened repeatedly, he said, for five to ten minutes. Each time, he said, he would look back, but by then the strange object had disappeared. Kinman tried to put his plane in position to use the cameras in his fuselage, adjusted to shoot the ground while in level flight. He was not successful and his films, when developed, showed nothing. "I was upset and scared by the whole thing," Kinman told me. "While this was going on I radioed the nearest Civil Aeronautics Authority traffic control center. (This is routine procedure for a pilot who sights unscheduled air traffic.) "On its final pass at me, the disc whirled upward. I thought it was going to take a piece of my canopy with it." Then, he said, it disappeared. After landing, Kinman, his face chalk-white, walked into the operations offices at Lawson and told the airdrome officer. "I just saw something very strange, like a flying saucer. What should I do?" I was called. I heard part of Kinman's story and informed him the Air Force had a formal intelligence report he would be requested to fill out. I stood by as he went over the details with an intelligence officer. Kinman was reluctant to volunteer details and had to be "pumped." He seemed to think we'd belittle his reports, maybe think he was out of his head. He wouldn't estimate the speed of the "disc," but said "it was awfully fast." Several days later, his report was sent to Washington. Kinman was called to Macon, Ga., where the Air Materials Command has a big base, and interviewed by high Air Force officers. Some laughed. A few fellows at the base, when the story got around, were inclined to poo-poo the idea. They thought Kinman was pulling a fast one. But the higher-up officers thought it was a serious incident. Knowing Kinman's experience, ability, observant powers and reputation for truth, I see He still is a pilot with the 117th flying jets in Germany. To my knowledge, Kinman's was the first and only report of an actual attack by a flying saucer, but the carefully guarded Air Force files may contain stories to match his. I, for one, wouldn't be surprised. End of article. I received this report while I was running the Skywatch mailing list for Col. Steve Wilson; this story is very similar to what's being reported being done to cattle in the San Luis Valley area by my friend, Chris O'Brien in his book "The Mysterious Valley". RELATED HOMOCIDE IN BRAZIL THE COMPLETE STORY Mon, 2 Dec 1996 14:55:12 If this case is authentically UFO-related - and at this time I have no reason to believe it is not - then all of us are going to have to reevaluate to one degree or another our tentative conclusions as to the possible specific intentions, moral perspectives and general agenda that some of our extraterrestrial visitors may have. Brazilian ufologist Encarnacion Zapata Garcia and Dr. Rubens Goes have recently presented a series of sensational photographs, obtained from police files which mimic the wounds of countless UFO-related animal mutilation cases that have been reported in Europe and North, Central and South America since the 1960s. On first glance they would seem to be ufology's worst nightmare. What is more disturbing is that Brazilian urologists and police have intimated that there may be at least a dozen or more cases similar to the recently uncovered Guarapiranga reservoir case. Obviously if the Guarapiranga data is legitimate, then it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain the position that all visitors are demonstrating a relatively friendly attitude toward humans, regardless of what their specific agenda(s) may be. The Guarapiranga situation indicates that there is at least one group of alien visitors to the planet who have a complete disdain for human sensibilities, who, in fact, could care less about the value of human life. I came to the same conclusion because all other alternatives were neither supported by facts nor good logic, whereas the similarities to numerous cattle mutilations which I had studied in the United States were startling, exactly paralleling what I have seen many times before. The specifics of the case are as follows: Encarnacion Garcia learned from her friend, Dr. Rubens Goes, that he was in possession of some rather "odd" photos which had been given to him by his cousin, police technician, Rubens Sergio. These were official photos of a body that had been found near Guarapiranga reservoir on the 29th of September 1988, of an unnamed male who was, however, later identified. The name of this man has been withheld from all media investigators, including UFO investigators, at the request of his relatives. After studying the photos, Encarnacion Garcia was impressed with how similar the wounds of the body were to those found on the carcasses of so many UFO-related mutilated animals... Note: I am going to edit out the most disturbing parts of this autopsy report: The body was in perfect condition. Rigor mortis had not set in and it was estimated that the victim had been killed approximately 48 to 72 hours previously. There were no signs of animal predation or putrefaction that might be expected. Strangely, there was no odor to the cadaver. Bleeding from the wounds had been minimal. The black coloration found in the face area and in other places within the photo is partly due to low light exposure when this photo and others were taken. It is also partly due to coagulated blood in the wound areas. As can clearly be seen, flesh and lips have been excised around the mandibles, as is common in cattle and other animal mutilations, the autopsy report noted, "the eyes and ears were also removed and the mouth cavity was emptied." Removal of these body parts, including the tongue as here, is common enough in animal mutilation cases. The autopsy report states: "There has been a removal of extensive tissue along many parts of the face, head and neck of the victim... There has also been extraction of ocular tissue, eyes, internal and external organs (ears) and entire parts of the head. The tongue and several muscles were also extracted." The kinds of cuts on the cadaver are what we have come to expect in UFO-related animal mutilation cases. Of primary interest is their precision. The "surgery" (or butchery, if you will) was done with agility and care and probably with speed. The lack of profuse bleeding suggests the use of a laser-like instrument producing acute heat, thus cauterizing almost immediately the edge of the wounds. It is probable that even some of the internal organs of the man could have been removed through this incision." What is most compelling about the anal incision and the extraction of anal and digestive tract tissue is that it is a carbon copy of the surgery we have seen in so many UFO-related animal mutilation cases. Here is an example of that type of mutilation done to cattle in a report from Chris O'Brien's site: Gelding Found Mutilated South of Alamosa Wed December 17, 1997, at 10:30 a.m. 5 Miles SW of Alamosa, SLV CO MUTE Rancher Ron Gardiner discovered a dead gelding 5 miles SW of Alamosa, CO, in the San Luis Valley So-Cen CO/No-Cen NM. The animal was still warm and the rancher estimated the animal was killed and mutilated sometime around dawn. The horse was missing its penis and an 8-inch circular patch of hide behind the sheath-- which was intact. The rear-end was neatly cored out in a slightly elongated circle to a depth of 8 to 9 inches. Eyes and tongue were intact. The animal was found lying on its right side at the bottom of a dry, 7-foot deep irrigation canal channel. There was evidence of a struggle i.e., broken chimisa bushes and thrashing marks, but besides the unfortunate gelding's tracks, there were no other tracks present. No apparent scavenger interest noted and two horses in the small herd seemed curious and unafraid of the carcass. The carcass did not bloat. No downside incisions or additional evidence noted by the rancher, this investigator, or the Alamosa County Sheriff investigator, but a 5-inch shallow gash in the hide was present on the neck. Several drops, which appeared to be blood was found in snow about 60 feet away over the fence and across the road. I hope this report isn't too disturbing, I just wish it weren't true!
