(Spies, Lies and Polygraph Tape) — What does “spies, lies and polygraph tape” source Dan Smith have in common with Jacques Vallee, Bruce Maccabee, Colonel John B. Alexander, Bob Bigelow, Kit Green, Ron Pandolfi, and Rick Doty?
Besides sharing government-based affiliations with the cloak and dagger world of intelligence, they’ve all been named in the world of conspiracy as some of the “bad boys” of the UFO scene.
Over the years I have been on the receiving end of a large volume of e-mail, often involving the above mentioned parties.
At the core of the discussion was the government’s “phenomenology problem” — evidence for a mysterious form of intelligence that appears to transcend time and space.
In early 2006, our exposure of Defense Intelligence Agency TIGER committee connections to the old CIA-funded psychic spy program and advanced exotic propulsion research, coupled with a hint of new covert activities, propelled us forward into an investigation of what, exactly constituted the “phenomenology problem.”
A source positioned to know more about the deeper aspects of TIGER wrote to us, “Whatever is going on, it sure ain’t in the TIGER.”
I responded to this source’s concerns over leaks coming from STARstream Research:
I should explain the factors taken into consideration in releasing the TIGER information.
First, you may recall that the TIGER committee came to my attention in an e-mail reply that you sent out to a [physicist Dr. Jack] Sarfatti semi-public wide-distribution list that included many journalists and others. This semi-public response opened the story and could have been attributed directly to you. I decided to refer to you as a source instead.
Another factor that weighed heavily was Dr. Eric Davis speaking with George Knapp on Coast to Coast AM radio on April 1, 2006. While being questioned about TIGER by Knapp, Eric confirmed that he was a colleague of the TIGER committee member mentioned in my (previous) story, and that his colleague had been a former founding member of NIDS SAB. That pretty much hit the identity nail with a hammer.
I also sent an advance copy of the story to Dan Smith, for comments and concerns.
It was my own opinion that since TIGER was promoted at a public web site, that STAR GATE had declassified the majority of concerns about SRI, that you are identified directly in the 1977 CIA “Studies in Intelligence” article by Ken Kress, your picture appeared in the March 2006 “Reader’s Digest,” and since you had written about the TIGER committee, members and concerns in an openly distributed and unsolicited manner, that the few additional pieces of information in my story added little to the available data. The identification of telepathy with CIA funded work at SRI should not surprise anyone.
Another source, the above mentioned Mr. Smith, pursued one manifestation of the phenomenology problem: mysterious phone calls, often with barely intelligible metallic sounding voices, buzzes and clicks adding an air of mystery to potentially anomalous contact. If you have seen the movie version of “The Mothman Prophecies” you’ll have a pretty good idea of the nature of this particular phenomenology problem. We later reviewed tapes made by a source who had experienced similar phone calls, but we were less than impressed. The calls were strange, but hardly inexplicable.
On the other hand, there were informal discussions of telepathy with known associates of Dr. Pandolfi (mind-to-mind here means direct mind-to-mind communication of meaning, i.e., telepathy).
And speaking of phenomenology problems, Dr. Eric Davis, a one-time U.S. Air Force contract physicist — and an associate of Dr. Pandolfi’s mentor Dr. Kit Green, a former analyst at CIA — has discussed the issue of telepathic messages received by a physicist at the Robert Bigelow property known as the Skinwalker Ranch, in Utah.
Pandolfi’s mentor from CIA concurs with the assessment:
“I take the existence of telepathy to be proven.”
As for the reality of telepathic phenomena — and especially the association of an extraterrestrial source for such phenomena — I imagine that most professionals would dismiss such claims as delusional.
I also imagine that delusions are often useful items found in the counter-intelligence tool kit, and this might easily explain the presence of the CIA-related spooks.
On the other hand, the telepathic experiences and bizarre phone calls might be the innocent result of hypnotic suggestion — perhaps related to the strangeness of Bigelow’s staff activities at Skinwalker Ranch.
Of course I have 80,000-plus pages of STAR GATE files released by the CIA that suggest more to this subject than mere delusion.
I have been very interested in Pandolif’s CIA mentor Dr. Green and his professional opinion of Eric Davis’ report, as well as any official interest the DIA might have in documented Los Alamos research into the physical nature of mind-to-mind communication.
Did I mention that Dr. Pandolfi’s mentor was on the Science Board of Robert Bigelow’s NIDS (National Institute Discovery Science)? I might have forgotten, but Dr. Eric Davis did not, when asked about Defense Intelligence Agency interest in Skinwalker Ranch phenomena by investigative reporter George Knapp, on the Coast to Coast AM radio talk show, on April 1, 2006.
The source of the audio recordings of the phone calls, Robert M. Collins, author of the UFO alien conspiracy book “Exempt from Disclosure,” was convinced that the calls were coming from some kind of extraterrestrial alien intelligence. In the late 1980s Collins had appeared alongside former Air Force intelligence officer Rick Doty in a nationally televised program called “UFO Cover-up? Live!” Among the many sources said to be behind the strange information Collins and Doty promoted during the show and later in Collins’ book was an unidentified source called FALCON.
When Collins book was first published and the story of a human-alien exchange program called SERPO first hit the Internet, Dan Smith’s friend from the CIA, Ron Pandolfi, was said to have been snooping around Wright Patterson Air Force Base looking for classified files left over from the Air Force UFO investigation called Project BLUE BOOK.
Smith also suggested Pandolfi was ready to apply more pressure to identify FALCON and he might even be willing to engage the FBI in an investigation of leaked classified material to do so.
When Collins and Doty and the mysterious FALCON first appeared as sources during the 1988 national television broadcast of “UFO Cover-up? Live!” in 1988, a meeting was held at CIA headquarters between former CIA-man Dr. Kit Green, Ron Pandolfi, said to have then been at CIA Science and Technology, the CIA counter-intelligence director, and two U.S. Air Force Colonels named Weaver and Hennessey.
The question that had been left hanging from that meeting at CIA some twenty years before was summed up by Smith:
“There is no doubt that Hennessey knew more about UFOs and Doty than he let on to the CIA in 1988 … That he would not share that concern with the CIA, indicates that he was being seriously co-opted in some fashion.”
Apparently it was the release of Collins’ book, essentially an extension and review of material that had been promoted during the 1988 broadcast, and the viral Internet tale called SERPO that had stimulated Pandolfi into action and the search for classified BLUE BOOK files.
Pandolfi’s curiosity was winding down fast, or he had already uncovered the information he needed. On June 23, 2006, Mr. Smith wrote to us, “I know of no plan for the FBI to serve any warrants, or otherwise investigate this matter at this point … the identity of FALCON remains open … “
Later, allegations connecting Pandolfi’s mentor from the CIA National Intelligence Council, TIGER committee member Dr. John Gannon, to the SERPO tale, initiated a new phase of Pandolfi’s investigation, according to leaked e-mail provided by Pandolfi himself.
This time it was alleged that the FBI was involved in the investigation after Pandolfi suggested Rick Doty’s UFO-related activities might be a cover for a foreign spy operation to penetrate government facilities.
As for Dr. Ron Pandolfi’s ongoing interest, with darker implications for the mind-to-mind interests mentioned previously?
You were correct that my interest is not specifically in [former U.S. Air Force OSI intelligence agent] Doty. My interest in temporarily removing Doty from the plot is to test whether another actor will fill the role. Dan [Smith] had commented several months back that the story might have created Doty rather than the other way around.
Indeed your viral hypothesis may benefit from some refinement. Individuals that are infected do not simply become part of a larger sickness pool, but rather they fill specific and unique niches. But how unique are these roles and what determines their specifics? With Doty temporarily removed, will someone fill in as simply another of the mythical and indistinguishable Dotys? Or will that someone fill in with unique characteristics clearly distinguishable from Doty? Will that someone move the story forward to the next chapter?
Yes, this is a question that may be of more than academic interest.
When we examined the CIA-release of the Defense Intelligence Agency STAR GATE files we learned that the Pentagon’s Andy Marshall had been briefed on the paranormal para-physics of (Tesla based?) scalar field technology. The memos about the briefing for Andy Marshall are from late 1994 and near the end of the STAR GATE program in 1995. Some of the names associated with the Marshall briefing would later reappear in connection with post-9/11 paranormal research.
“The Men Who Stare at Goats” author Jon Ronson claimed that some of the STAR GATE programs went black and are still in operation. Indeed, Ronson claims that psychic Uri Geller told him in London that he had been reactivated by “Ron.”
The alleged black versions of paranormal research appear to be extensions of previous STAR GATE research into telepathic remote viewing command-control-communication and remote perturbation of biological systems. Ronson concluded that the alleged present-day paranormal program was designed to experiment with RP (remote perturbation, mind over matter, or psychokinesis) for killing goats and perhaps even humans — a conclusion hotly disparaged by Col. John B. Alexander.
I was also curious about subconscious telepathic-like channels; a layer of shared information that might influence human behavior in an indirectly observable manner.
If I might momentarily digress from this brief foray into the quasi-metaphysical, I have in my hands a CIA declassified document “SECRET Statement of Work for Biophysical Research and Analysis” from 1991.
This work was focused on biophysical research and analysis of neuromagnetic phenomena, to identify correlations of brain neuromagnetic responses to a variety of independent conditions or parameters, i.e. a measurable telepathic connection.
In this document, justification is made for direct MIPR action from DIA to LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory) based upon a 1985-89 LANL study sponsored by the Army’s Surgeon General Research and Development office. In the previous study it was reported that the LANL Biophysics group investigations yielded positive results. This new effort was part of DIA’s over-all Phenomenological Research Program (STAR GATE is not directly mentioned). Dr. Charles Wood is noted as the Biophysical Group’s director. The contract is scheduled to be signed by John T. Berbrich, Asst. Deputy Director for Science and Technical Intelligence, with a budget of $250,000.
The positive results of the mentioned research would be an example of what I have previously referred to as registration of telepathic information. But is this related to the non-endogenous signals in the brain we were told about by another source?
When I examined real STAR GATE paranormal files I saw that information concerning remote perturbation of skin conductance had been blacked out in a scientific summary (with no reference to operational activities). In another report it was noted that scalar theory might be involved in the remote viewing phenomenology.
When we first pursued an investigation of the alleged governmnet phenomenology problem, Pandolfi’s friend Dan Smith, never a man known for understating his interpretation of the situation, wrote to me:
“Think of this as your initiation into the AQUARIUM. Ron endure a six month, $100k [federal] investigation to the same effect. This is not for the feint of heart.”
I’ll be exploring more connections in this odd network in the future.
