Over four decades ago a meeting of high-ranking military and intelligence officials, academic scholars and senior-level government scientists convened to analyze the nature of the mysterious UFO phenomena. This dynamic mix of professionals hailed from the Air Force, NASA and other esteemed organizations.

At the meeting these learned and accomplished men considered that the truth about the visiting extraterrestrial is far more disturbing than we would ever dare to imagine:
The aliens walk among us undetected! They have already inserted themselves into our culture and our world. And as you will soon hear for yourself, these stunning statements were taped, leaving no doubt about their intended meaning.

And just as our government inserts its intelligence agents into "countries of interest" by having them look and act like the target populus - the extraterrestrials would do the same. Before any open contact is made, they no doubt engage in the standard practice of learning as much about "the natives" as possible by "becoming" them!

On February 8, 1966 the civilian UFO research group NICAP (National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena) held a small reception in Washington, DC in honor of noted Brazilian UFO researcher Olavo Fontes, MD. Fontes was most known for his early work on the Brazil "Ubatuba" UFO case and resulting debris sample. Long defunct, NICAP was a credible research organization that counted among its members those within many professions throughout the 1950s and 1960s.

According to archived records of the organization, at this meeting there were 14 people in attendance. Many of these attendees were rather notable:

- The former Chief of Intelligence of the United States Air Force at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
- Two senior-level NASA scientists
- A retired USAF Colonel and NASA Program Manager

This meeting was (in part) recorded and had included some conversations among those that were assembled that concerned what the intentions may be of the "beings behind the UFO craft" that were being sighted in our skies.

The roster of attendees included NICAP officers and "friends of NICAP":

- Frank Bloss (Trident Missile Engineer)
- Robert Suggs, PhD (Noted Anthropologist)
- Leon Katchen (NASA Physicist later a developer of the Space Shuttle)
- Eli Bernzweig (Attorney and Ethicist)
- Frank Rawlinson (NASA Physicist later with Goddard Space Flight Center)
- Edward C. Russell (President of the non-profit English Speaking Union and early Peace and Cultural Exchange Advocate)
- Col. Howard Wright (USAF Ret., Decorated Pilot, Intel Agent, NASA Program Manager)
- Col. Howard McCoy (USAF Ret., Chief of Intelligence, USAF Wright Patterson AMC)

It is these last two attendees (and the meeting's honoree himself) who offer the most telling information about UFOs, their pilots and what they are doing here...

Seated among this small gathered group was retired USAF Col. Howard Wright. Wright served as a decorated pilot in WWII, was engaged in many military intelligence missions, and later was employed at NASA as a Deputy Program Manager working on projects that were closely associated with the Air Force.

Wright made these remarkable statements about the extraterrestrial presence to his associates:

"I was in Intelligence for a long time, military intelligence. I was in the War. It is logical, not just military thinking, but as logical thinking, that there was never a successful military occupation or adventure where prior to the invasion or prior to the mass landing there were not agents sent ahead. This is standard practice. In Germany we and the British inserted Americans and we inserted British who looked like the Germans and spoke their language. In Japan we inserted them, but we had agents in their country exactly the same as we have agents behind the Iron Curtain now.

The main purpose of these people is to be as exactly like the natives as possible and yet the fact of life, the fact of military logic, the fact of cultural logic -and especially since they have not been hostile - dictates that there would be, if they are humanoid , that there can be humanoids picked out since the range of size and shape and color on this planet covers almost the entire spectrum.

“It almost dictates the fact that there would be agents of the space people, wherever they come from, living among us at the present time and having been here over the last hundred years."

Fortunately for history, someone in attendance had privately recorded parts of the meeting (perhaps unbeknownst to those in attendance) and later had stored it in the NICAP archives to be retrieved only decades later. You can hear Wright speaking to the group here:

Col. Howard Wright Discussing ET's Infiltration of Society,
From NICAP Archive:

Wright's comments are very insightful and make complete sense. What is equally telling is that Wright is one of two retired Air Force Colonels at this invite-only function. The other is Air Force Chief Col. Howard McCoy, a professional colleague and friend of Col.Howard Wright's. Howard McCoy was in fact a very senior-level officer in our nation's military after WWII. He was the Chief of Intelligence for the United States Air Force Air Materiel Command. He was close to the Secretary of the Air Force Stuart Symington and with General Curtis LeMay. McCoy was also instrumental in initiating the 1948 official government UFO study "Project Sign."

So here then we have the former head of Air Force Intelligence listening intently to his Air Force Intelligence compatriot seated right next to him in the same room speaking rather surely about the extraterrestrial infiltration of society! In fact so similar were the two Colonels that these statements on the alien reality were originally attributed to Colonel McCoy himself, but later investigation proved that the words were that of Col. Wright.

Skeptics may point out that it was McCoy who wrote in 1948 (in a document written after the Roswell crash from the year before): "I can't even tell you how much we would give to have one of those crash in an area so that we could recover what they are." But McCoy wrote this to a USAF Scientific Advisory Board Conference whose members have been shown to not all have possessed such sufficient clearance and need to know about such a crash. Either McCoy was misstating to misdirect and to protect security surrounding the issue- or he did not know at the time but later found out. Of course had such a crash event occurred, its existence would not be made known in such a general letter, circulated broadly to numbers of individuals.

Because we do not have the entire recording of this meeting that McCoy attended, we do not know precisely what he thought about Col. Wright's statements on visiting extraterrestrials "blending in" with our world. But we must wonder: Why in the world was McCoy even there in the first place?

Why was the former Director of USAF Intelligence at a private function honoring Ufologist Dr. Olavo Fontes (who had some years before studied what was believed to potentially be debris from a UFO) ?

Why was McCoy considering statements about infiltration of our world by those from another?

What was he doing there with a fellow Air Force intelligence officer and scientists from NASA?

Why was McCoy still privately obsessed by "things alien" long after he had retired from service- and decades after his Project Sign project was completed?

If the extraterrestrial has mastered the ability to traverse the cosmos by manipulating space, time and matter to its advantage- it certainly has developed advanced camouflage technologies. They can no doubt "disguise" themselves to appear human. Or perhaps they are a continuum of things human. Such a humanoid could create a semblance to us so as to appear as we do. Perhaps they know that to one day face us, their face must look like us. They may be so different that immediate assimilation would be hindered by their radically different appearance. Or perhaps they are only a few thousand years ahead of us and don't look that much different.

As our own military and intelligence professionals know, this "blending in" would allow such "visitors" to gain first-hand information on us in advance- and undetected. They would understand us more completely if they walked amongst us. Wildlife researchers also know this. They cloak themselves in bear-skin to film the behavior of bear up close. In a similar way, the extraterrestrials would "cloak" themselves to seem more like those they are observing. In this way they know us better, without us ever even knowing!

Col. McCoy himself understood about the infiltration of other lands. He was in WWII and was instrumental in capturing German enemy technologies. The former head of our nation's Air Force Intelligence probably concurred with his associate Col. Wright: The people from other planets have already immersed themselves in our own!

Nick Redfern’s FINAL EVENTS

Many of you have read, we assume, Nick Redfern’s recent “best seller” FINAL EVENTS and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife [Anomalist Books, NY and San Antonio, TX, 2010].


If not, you should, and we’ll enumerate why here.

The thesis of Mr. Redfern’s book is that there exists (or existed) a governmentally-initiated group called The Collins Elite which was obsessed with the idea that UFOs were demonic entities (angels, as it were) who were gulling people and agencies into believing UFOs were extraterrestrial when in fact the operatives – the UFO entities –were paranormal entities out to “capture the souls of human beings.”

Yes, the concept is staggeringly bizarre, which is grist for Mr. Redfern, who often presents obtuse conjectures about UFOs, as he did with his book about Roswell, Body Snatchers in the Desert.

Now if you’re inclined to dismiss the demonic UFO hypothesis and Mr. Redfern’s book, you’d be missing out on what Mr. Redfern does best, and that’s present peripheral information and material that enlightens those who have limited knowledge about things germane to UFOs and human existence itself.

For instance, in FINAL EVENTS, Mr. Redfern provides a succinct dissertation on philosophy’s view of the soul [Chapter 16; Demons, Souls, and Fallen Angels].


He also gives background on some UFO players who get short shrift, if any shrift at all, in the UFO literature: Jack Parsons, L. Ron Hubbard, Aleister Crowley, Theodore von Karman, et al.

He also references UFO researchers with acumen and cachet but don’t get a lot of play in the States: the U.K.’s David Clarke and Andy Roberts and America’s own Michael Heiser who has a few terrific web-sites or blogs dealing with UFOs and Religion -- will get you to those blogs and sites.

Mr. Redfern also presents a précis about the Hebrew concept of the Golem, which is an intriguing story worthy of a book all by itself.


You will also get introductory but insightful views of contactees (those flying saucer reprobates that Mr. Redfern, and others now, find worthy of another look).

Mr. Redfern does what other good writers do. He provides asides that illuminate items that might be of interest to readers. (James Bond’s creator, Ian Fleming, was extolled for doing the same thing in his books about the British secret agent.)

For instance, Mr. Redfern allows information about oft-excoriated UFO persons or things (Bob Lazar and MJ-12) that fill in lacunae which may be important in the over-all UFO mystery.


His Chapter [20] on U.S. President Ronald Reagan tells much that news media has glossed over about the ex-President; information that makes clearer what Mr. Reagan’s presidency was about, in large part.

And the Biblical detritus should thrill anyone who has a predilection for things theological, and arcane, such as the mysterious Book of Enoch, which tells religious mavens what the early Jews believed about God and his celestial plans for humanity.


Now, this “reviewer” is not enamored of The Collins Elite scenario, nor is Mr. Redfern I assume. But it is an idea that Mr. Redfern presents thoroughly and objectively, as usual.

And one that can’t be dismissed out-of-hand, if one considers Mr. Redfern’s remarkable accumulation of circumstantial information that bolsters the Collins Elite thesis.

Get the book – via Amazon or Anomalist Books (online) – and give yourself a treat, one that will be intellectually stimulating in many, many ways….

Missing the point(s)?


The continuing dialogue between "commentors" here about the Solway Firth (Cumberland) “spaceman” confirms, for us, that the photo and incident should not be dismissed out-of-hand.

The reason not to dismiss stems from the more-than-tangential information that a missile test (Blue Streak Missile) in Australia (Woomera) in the same time-frame as the photo-taking by Mr. Templeton – Australia’s time zone considerably different than that of the Solway Firth (U.K.) time zone – had a bizarre incident: two “men” in white seen in the missile range, halting the test, allegedly.

The Blue Streak missile was also worked on and tested in the Solway Firth area.


(And although some regard the Socorro/Zamora sighting as not relevant, we think it is; Lonnie Zamora saw two beings (men?), dressed in white coveralls, one month, to the day, before the Solway Firth/Woomera sightings.)


The ongoing search for details about the Templeton photo-shoot is important, and we hope it continues to a resolution of some kind.

That the Woomera event isn’t being pursued, seriously, is a mistake and a missed opportunity of great significance.

Mr. Templeton, in our view, did not commit a fraud or a hoax.

The image his camera captured was not a jogger, a beekeeper, or a person in a fencing outfit, as one person has suggested to Mr. Bragalia.

The image remains a true anomaly, a real mystery.

And the Woomera “sighting” has to be considered as integral to the solution of the Solway Firth spaceman photo.

While the Solway Firth photo does nothing to explain the overall UFO mystery, it does provide a clue, perhaps, to what was going on in 1964, as far as UFO sightings go.

And, like Roswell and 1947, 1964 is an interesting time-point for UFO events. Why?
