I’m not a “conspiracist” by nature, but I am well-read
enough to know that conspiracies to eliminate persons of power or knowledge
have often been committed in human history:
Tutankhamun, Julius Caesar, Jesus of Nazareth, Thomas Beckett, King Ludwig
II, Leon Trotsky, et al.
There are countless others.)
I just finished Where’s the Truth edited by Mary Boyd
Higgins [Farrar, Straus and Giroux, NY, 2012] which is a compendium of journal
writings, diary entries, and letters from Wilhelm Reich (from 1948 to his
“death” in November 1957).
I’ve always felt that Dr. Reich was killed by operatives of
the government who wanted to stifle his odd work (and experiments) with orgone
energy and UFOs, too.
The book provides a plethora of incidents and legal
maneuvers of a diabolic kind to put Dr. Reich out of business and out of life.
In the context of the Cold War, where the mind-set of the
United States government was likened to the communist behavioral modus – the
end justifies the means -- anything was
okay to do, even to killing persons who were inimical to U.S. geo-political
(I have a book coming – Against their Will: The Secret
History of Medical Experimentation on Children in Cold War America
[Pargrave] – that shows how the government behaved in the time-frame (and also
supplements or supports Nick Redfern’s thesis in his book, Body Snatchers in
The Cold War provoked illegal and murderous activity
instigated by the highest levels of the U.S. government, which has always made
me think that James Forrestal was thrown out the hospital window where he was a
patient….mostly because this was something that happened to another “enemy” of
the U.S. government (cited here, at this blog, earlier).
Forrestal was involved in flying saucer business, as was
M.K. Jessup (also dying mysteriously), Ed Ruppelt, head of the Air Force’s
Project Blue Book (who had a “heart attack” at an early age, much as Dr, Reich
supposedly had), Dr. James McDonald who was a heavy advocate of UFO reality and
prominent in the matter; he committed suicide allegedly, and others as listed
at this web-site The Awake Zone
and also amply reported by our pal, Nick
My point is that, while UFO deaths might be natural, there
are accounts that raise the issue of possible murder, and that because agents
of the U.S. government were inclined to kill people who might disclose secrets
– UFO secrets – that were not meant to be opened to public scrutiny.
But the question that needs to be addressed is Why?
