xx UFO Hocus Pocus: The Story of the Falcon
« Thread started on: Jul 15th, 2012, 10:23am »

Grant Cameron's article on this topic is now available. It is long and detailed and provides and excellent overview of US intelligence involvement in disseminating UFO information to civilian researchers. Beginning with Bill Moore's Aviary and continuing right up to the recent revelations from Chase Brandon.

Essential reading:

====================================

"UFO Hocus Pocus: The Story of the Falcon

Written by Grant Cameron
Wednesday, 11 July 2012 22:54

Part of our intelligence process is to be involved in counterintelligence, to lead the enemy in another direction by providing those misdirecting dots. From the book Homeland Security and Intelligence

"Something does not make much sense here. Why would someone in Washington mount a disinformation effort if the only result is to confuse members of the UFO research community, which is a very small group without much influence over the public at large?" Researcher and Author Jacques Vallee

Cast of Characters

Bill Moore – Prominent author and UFO researcher in the 1980s. Moore wrote “The Roswell Incident” which put the 1947 Roswell UFO crash story on the map. Prior to the book no one in the UFO community had ever heard of the story. He released the now infamous MJ-12 documents (a document that purported to be a UFO briefing for then President-elect Dwight Eisenhower) to the UFO community with Jamie Shandera and Stanton Friedman.

Jamie Shandera – Shandera was Hollywood film producer who teamed up with Bill Moore to research and release the MJ-12 document. He was not a UFO researcher prior to teaming up with Moore. It was Shandera who received the MJ-12 document in the mail.

Stanton Friedman – The third member of the MJ-12 research team who played no part in the hocus pocus detailed below. When approached with the name of the Falcon he told me “never heard of the guy.”

The Aviary – When Moore and Shandera were operating with their many high level intelligence sources in the 1980s, they used bird names for each source so that they could talk on the phone about the sources without using their names. Thirty years later Moore and Shandera have still not disclosed which person represented each bird. Most of the birds were never aware of this bird naming game till years later, and few if any know which bird they were.

The Falcon – The Falcon was one of the two most important birds. Moore has now confirmed that he believed Falcon to be Harry Rositzke - a former high ranking CIA official who was brought out of retirement claiming to represent a group of government insiders who wanted the UFO story put into the public. Moore apparently never met Rositzke but calculated who he must have been.

Richard Doty – Acted as the Falcon to protect the identity of the real Falcon. Reported to be a Special Agent for Air Force Office of Special Investigations at Kirkland Air Force base, but may actually have been working not for AFOSI but for Air Force Intelligence according to a new claim.

Lee Graham – A technician working for Aerojet in a classified position who was chosen to leak the documents that Moore and Shandera were receiving from their intelligence sources.



Setting the Stage

In a lecture given in Las Vegas in 1989 researcher Bill Moore recounted how the story of the Falcon and how the document leaks began,

"In early September, 1980, I was approached by a well- placed individual within the intelligence community who claimed to be directly connected to a high-level project dealing with UFOs. This individual told me that he spoke for a small group of similar individuals who were uncomfortable with the government's continuing cover-up of the truth and indicated that he and his group would like to help me with my research into the subject in the hope and expectation that I might be able to help them find a way to change the prevailing policy and get the facts to the public without breaking any laws in the process. The man who acted as liaison between this group and myself was an Air Force Office of Special Investigations agent named Richard Doty.”
Most importantly, Falcon told Moore that the information he would receive on UFOs would not all be accurate. Some of it would be disinformation. It would be up to Moore to figure out what was true and what was false. Moore accepted the challenge.

The Moore/Falcon/Aviary story is a story that still fascinates UFO researchers thirty-two years after it first began. Many researchers, such as myself, spend a lot of time trying to figure out who each of the birds of the aviary are and what information they told Moore and Shandera. It is an example of a second level UFO cover-up which is very common in Ufology. Many researchers sit quietly in the background gathering pieces of the UFO story from government and intelligence stories. The information gathered, however, is not shared with the general public. It becomes like a second level cover-up where an individual or a group of individuals, like rich men hunting rare illegal wild game, have gathered some of the UFO secrets withheld from government for their own person enjoyment.

The story that Moore would be feed would later be called the UFO “Core story.” Three men dr. Kit Green, Hal Puthoff, and Jacques Vallee met to identify what they knew for sure about all the circulating UFO stories - they came up with the core story - that extraterrestrials have visited the earth, there was a crash and the government has had a lot of trouble back engineering the saucer technology, and at least one alien was a guest of the United Sates government. The main piece of information that Moore would be given that was new was the MJ-12 document which claimed to be a UFO briefing given to the President-elect Dwight Eisenhower.

Moore’s recalled in his Sept 30, 1989 “Focus” magazine that when his research partner Jamie Shandera first received the MJ-12 Eisenhower Presidential Briefing documents anonymously in the mail in 1984 he went to talk about the document with both Richard Doty and the Falcon. He wanted to know what to do.

According to Moore, Doty told him “find someone to show them to who would do a lot of talking about them to a lot of people. ‘Show them to this person,’ he said, ‘but be sure not to give him any copies. Let whoever it is talk all they want.’ …It sounded like a good idea and I decided to act on it. After carefully considering ‘candidates’ and discussing them with Rick and others including ‘Falcon’ himself, we settled on Lee Graham.”

And so Graham became the “Pigeon” of the infamous UFO aviary – the bird who would carry the message to the curious UFO research community. He was perfect for the job. Graham held nothing back. There were no secrets. He even took every document that Moore would leak to him to his security department at AeroJet where he worked under classification as a technician. Most of the documents got out but as Graham has confirmed to me there were other documents that he received from Moore that never saw the light of day." Continue reading -

Something is amiss here! Many books about Roswell were published long before 1980! I remember reading Wilhelm Reich – 1955 book 'Contacts with Space' when I was 9-10 years old! (had to have some help with understanding it but I had an uncle who was interested who did)

The Loretta Proctor story in 1965 and the story of Lidia Sleppy in the magazine 'Saga' in the early 70's at my uncles house!

Roswell is probably the main catalyst that started mine and many others interest in UFO's!

My own sighting in the mid 60's convinced myself and a few members of my family that were there that maybe Roswell was the real deal!

It even convinced my father who was at the time a semi-religious zealot!!

Lone.

Was this book by Moore the first to be dedicated solely to the Roswell affair ?

(I haven't read the book)

I agree that Roswell was mention often before 1980. But probably as part of a sightings compilation.

Ya know! I think you are correct. Most everything else were compendiums of reports with Roswell one of them with notes from those directly involved!
Wilhelm Reich was actually there doing weather experiments much like Teslas (he called his machine 'The Cloudbuster') when he stumbled onto Roswell because the ranch he was on was next to the crash site!

Van Danikin was another who basically compiled reported UFO phenomenon and put everything he could find in one book!

Anyway...I think Grant did an excellent job here with multiple sources.

He makes a good argument

I think Dr Vallee's quote sums it all up. So is the govt. hiding truths about ufos and aliens or is something else going on?

One school of thought says test subjects.

Another says the govt is only hiding what it does not really know or understand.

But the whole thing is very odd.

Certainly there must have been a motivation for these "shenanigans".

But to me not much of the ones being offered makes much sense at all.

I don't know what to believe.....but I find it pretty interesting.

Something was going on though.

Maybe it still is.

The Serpo releases tell the same core story.

I mean maybe 99% of Serpo is totally phony.

But what if the right 1% was actually correct?

I suspect they don't really know a lot either and all the talk about secret alien deals and reverse engineered stuff is hogwash.
I do believe they have taken a keen interest in the phenomenon..and why not? If true they could learn much about various aspects of advanced technology ...but somehow I don't think it's that simple and it might be something well beyond our current level of comprehension on both ontological and technological levels.

The analogy of the Soviets and that captured B-29 comes to mind. Only about a decade behind us in aircraft technology and it took them just about that long to reverse engineer it. Coincidence or .......... ?

Thought about posting this article together with the recent interview of Greg Bishop into the hoaxes and disinfo-subforum but you were faster.

I don't buy into his theory about that all these stories mean a "gradual disclosure". If that would be the case then this would happen on a much larger global scale and the media would be involved, while indeed we're still getting the same old ridiculing und smirking and old jokes about "little green men". All those stories ala Dulce, MJ12, Serpo, etc. only target the UFO-community which is just a tiny percentage of the human population of this planet. Certainly the wrong way to acclimatize humanity to anything.

That's an excellent point Philliman. Probably a good guideline for separating the serious from the profiteers as well.

Nobody else is interested.

I wouldn't call it gradual disclosure or even acclimation.

More like testing.

But I don't know anything.

I'm just trying to make sense out of it

Don't you believe some aspect of the Core Story?

Explain testing Murnut. There aren't enough people involved for any kind of population sampling. This does make profiteering a very strong possibility .........

Could many different kinds of testing.

Testing possible questions.

Testing the reactions.

Testing the limits of what psychologically can be handled.

It's probably not all good news.

They don't have all the answers.

Neither do I.

But if we are interested in ufology, aren't we also interested in a Core Story that has been circulating for 30 years?

Corso told a version too.

The Roswell Story is connected.

Area -51 is connected to it.

Everyone nows knows about Roswell and Area -51.

Isn't that a type of "Acclimation"?

Now forgetting the little details of strawberry ice cream and lawnmowers....maybe the Core Story goes a little something like this.....


Quote:
Green described the core story this way.

“Simply put, the core story is this: ‘The ETs came here, maybe once, maybe a few times. Either through accident or by design, the US government acquired one of their craft. The only problem was that the physics that powered the craft were so advanced that for decades we humans have struggled to understand it or replicate it.”



Quote:
If something really strange in the area of UFOs is true, then what do we do about conveying that information to the public? First we must consider what may be the basic facts if you were to give them the core story right off the bat, they’d get sick, so you do it slowly over ten or twenty years. You put out a bunch of movies, a bunch of books, a bunch of stories, a bunch of Internet memes about reptilian aliens eating our children, about the crazy stuff we’ve see recently in Serpo. Then one day you say. “Hey, all that stuff is nonsense, relax, it’s not that bad, you don’t have to worry, the reality is this” and then you give them the real story.”



Now many people don't like Kit....or don't like the things attributed to him over the last few years.

But he isn't a kook or stupid and his resume backs that up.

I do believe there is a certain core story.....I don't know what that is.

But where there is smoke, there is fire.

And when folks like Kit Green talk, I consider what he says seriously.

I don't believe....I consider.
