There’s a fascinating frailty of the human mind that psychologists know all about, called ‘argument from ignorance’. This is how it goes. Remember what the U stands for in UFO? You see lights flashing in the sky. You’ve never seen anything like this before and don’t understand what it is. You say, ‘It’s a UFO!’ The U stands for unidentified.
But then you say, ‘I don’t know what it is; it must be aliens from outer space, visiting from another planet.’ The issue here is that if you don’t know what something is, your interpretation of it should stop immediately. You don’t then say it must be X or Y or Z. That’s argument from ignorance. It’s common. I’m not blaming anybody; it may relate to our burning need to manufacture answers because we feel uncomfortable about being steeped in ignorance. Neil deGrasse Tyson, ‘Space Chronicles: Facing the Ultimate Frontier’
I stopped reading science fiction once I saw that the UFO was real. It became science fact that just hasn’t been proven yet. Mike Bird
What most people don’t understand is that UFOs are on a cosmic tourist route. That’s why they’re always seen in Arizona, Scotland, and New Mexico. Another thing to consider is that all three of those destinations are good places to play golf. So there’s possibly some connection between aliens and golf. Alice Cooper
Today more people believe in UFOs than believe that Social Security will take care of their retirement. Scott Cook
I’m going to tell you what this is all about ... And I’m going to tell you why the United States government is afraid for you to find out what the truth is regarding UFOs. Bill Cooper
I saw come up out of the ocean from beneath the surface of the sea a huge disc-shaped craft ... rose into the air, tumble on its axis and go into the clouds. Bill Cooper
Zecharia Sitchin, who has perverted the interpretation of the ancient writings, claims that this means that the Egyptians whenever they drew these or put these hieroglyphics in their writings, were indicating that UFOs came from other planets. And nothing can be further from the truth. But this is part of the Mystery Babylon deception trying to convince the people of the Earth that we are threatened by some other species from some other planet so that they can more quickly bring about their New World Order. Bill Cooper, The Hour of the Time
Between January 1947 and December 1952 at least sixteen crashed or downed alien craft, sixty-five bodies, and one live alien were recovered. An additional alien craft had exploded and nothing was recovered from that incident. Of these events, thirteen occurred within the borders of the United States, not including the craft which disintegrated in the air. Of these thirteen, one was in Arizona, eleven were in New Mexico, and one was in Nevada. Sightings of UFOs were so numerous that serious investigation and debunking of each report became impossible, utilizing the existing intelligence assets ...
During his [Eisenhower] first year in office, 1953, at least ten more crashed discs were recovered along with twenty-six dead and four live aliens. Of the ten, four were found in Arizona, two in Texas, one in New Mexico, one in Louisiana, one in Montana, and one in South Africa. There were hundreds of sightings. Bill Cooper, lecture MUFON Symposium 2nd October 1989, ‘The Origin Identity & Purpose of MJ12’
The people in this world who are about to destroy the sovereignty of nations and take away our Bill of Rights – the UFO thing is integrally tied in to this in some way; I’m not exactly sure how. But if extraterrestrials are real, then they are controlling everything. Believe me. If there are not real, they are being used as a threat from without, to scare people into coming into this one-world global unity of humanity in order to face that external threat in the process we’re going to lose. The ordinary man will lose. Bill Cooper
But eventually I found myself in possession, holding two documents; one called ‘Project Grudge’, another one called ‘Operation Majority’. Project Grudge contained the history of alien involvement since around 1936, and it began talking about Germany’s involvement with a crashed disk that they had recovered in 1936 and were attempting to duplicate the technology. They were not successful despite what all these Nazi hunters want to tell you. If they had been successful, we would not have won the war, because you cannot beat those weapons! You cannot out-fly those craft! You can’t even think about it with conventional aircraft. If Germany had been successful, we would now have a German flag up in front of this podium. Bill Cooper, lecture ‘A Seminar on Majic 12’
... It wasn’t until 1947 that we were able to capture a craft, a whole craft, not all together but it was everything. That occurred near the city of Roswell, New Mexico. There were dead aliens recovered from the craft. In Project Grudge I saw photographs of these dead aliens [and] of the craft. I saw photographs of live aliens. I saw photographs of autopsies ... of internal organs, I saw photographs of the alien designated EB [or Ebe] who was held in captivity from 1949 until June 2nd 1952 when he died. I saw the history of what they had been able to put together [at that time], from incidents in the 1800’s which involved aliens and their craft. ibid.
I saw the names of projects. I saw a project that was to fly recovered alien craft that had been recovered intact and undamaged, and some of them were recovered intact and undamaged, and how that happened I have no idea. It was called ‘Project Redlight’, and was first conducted from the Tonopah Test Range in the Nevada Test Site and then was moved to a specially built area, ordered built by President Eisenhower, called Area-51, code-named Dreamland ... If you write letters to the government, they will tell you it doesn’t exist. However, if you go out there at several places and see it, fly outside the boundaries and look down and see it, you know it’s there, but according to the government it doesn’t exist. ibid.
The project to test-fly these craft was ongoing until sometime in 1962 when a craft blew up not far from the test sight, in the air, and the explosion was seen over a three-state area. The pilots were killed. They [the government] had no idea what had happened or why the craft blew up, but they put Project Redlight on hold until a later date when the aliens supplied us with three craft and personnel to help us learn how to fly them craft. That project is ongoing [now] and we now have not only alien craft that we are flying, we have craft we have built, using the captured technology, and some of the UFOs that people report seeing in the United States, and maybe even elsewhere, are flown by United States personnel. ibid.
... The next thing that’s wrong is to keep the secret they killed a lot of people who tried to leak it out. And if I hadn’t done it the way that I did it, you wouldn’t be seeing me anywhere standing or walking on this Earth now. They killed President Kennedy and during the workshop, for those of you haven’t seen the tape, I will show you, on the tape, who shot the President and why. Between ’70 and ’73 in Operation Majority it stated verbatim that President Kennedy ordered MJ-12 to cease the importation and sale of drugs to the American people, that he ordered them to implement a plan to reveal the presence of aliens to the American people within the following year.
His assassination was ordered by the policy committee of the Bilderbergers. MJ-12 implemented the plan and carried it out in Dallas. It involved agents of the CIA, Division 5 of the FBI, the Secret Service, and the Office of Naval Intelligence. President Kennedy was killed by the driver of his car; his name was William Greer. He used a recoilless, electrically operated, gas-powered assassination pistol that was specially built by the CIA to assassinate people at close range. It fired an explosive pellet which injected a large amount of shellfish poison into the brain, and that is why, in the documents, it states that President Kennedy’s brain was removed. If you’ve studied the case, you will find that indeed his brain disappeared. The reason for that is so that they would not find the particles of the exploding pellet or the shellfish poison in his brain which would have proved conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald was NOT the assassin. In fact, Lee Harvey Oswald never fired a shot. He was the patsy. ibid.
MAJI is the MAJORITY AGENCY FOR JOINT INTELLIGENCE. All information, disinformation, and intelligence is gathered and evaluated by this agency. The agency is responsible for all disinformation and operates in conjunction with the CIA, NSA, and the Defense Intelligence Agency. This is a very powerful organization and all alien projects are under its control. MAJI is only responsible to MJ-12. Bill Cooper, Operation Majority, material released 31st May 1996
SIGMA is the project which first established communications with the aliens and is still responsible for communications. ibid.
PLATO is the project responsible for Diplomatic relations with the aliens. This project secured a formal treaty (illegal under the Constitution) with the aliens. The terms were that the aliens would give us technology. In return we agreed to keep their presence on earth a secret, not to interfere in any way their actions, and to allow them to abduct humans and animals. The aliens agreed to furnish MJ-12 with a list of abductees on a periodic basis. ibid.
MAJIC is a security classification and clearance of all alien-connected material, projects, and information. MAJIC means MAJI controlled. ibid.
AQUARIUS is a project which compiled the history of alien presence and their interaction with Homo sapiens upon this planet for the last 25,000 years and culminating with the Basque people who live in the mountainous country on the border of France and Spain and the Syrians. ibid.
GARNET is the project responsible for control of all information and documents regarding this subject [aliens] and accountability of the information and documents. ibid.
PLUTO is a project to evaluate all UFO/IAC information pertaining to space technology. ibid.
POUNCE is the project formed to recover all downed/crashed craft and aliens. ibid.
REDLIGHT is the project to test-fly recovered alien craft. It is conducted at Area 51 (Dreamland) in Nevada. It was aided when the aliens gave us craft and helped us fly them. The initial project was somewhat successful in that we flew a recovered craft but it blew up in the air and the pilots were killed. The project was suspended at that time until the aliens agreed to help us. ibid.
SNOWBIRD was established as a cover for project REDLIGHT. Several flying saucer type craft were built using conventional technology. They were unveiled to the press and flown in front of the press. The purpose was to explain accidental sightings or disclosure of REDLIGHT as having been SNOWBIRD craft. ibid.
LUNA is the alien base on the far side of the Moon. It was seen and filmed by Apollo Astronauts. A base, a mining operation using very large machines, and a very large alien craft described in sighting reports as MOTHER SHIPS exist there. ibid.
NRO is the National Recon Organization based at Fort Carson, Colorado. It is responsible for security for all alien or alien craft connected projects. ibid.
