MORE UFOlogy DIRTY LAUNDRY BEING AIRED: WHERE's THE GAS MASK?! /
FIRST, WE HAVE STEPHEN BASSETT vs MICHAEL HORN IN A WWF-LIKE
FRIDAY NITE "SMACKDOWN," and NOW IN THIS MATCHUP's CORNER WE
HAVE FORMER MUFON DIRECTOR JAMES CARRION FURIOUSLY FIRING BACK
AT HIS CRITICS, BLASTING THE EXOPOLITICS "DISCLOSURE" GANG and
THE REAL REASON FOR HIS RESIGNATION FROM MUFON! / IS THIS
UFOLOGY's DARKEST HOUR? - "Strange Bedfellows: Follow The Magic
Thread" - By James Carrion, Thursday, February 3, 2011

Remember when it was just a conspiracy theory that the CIA
wanted the Mafia to assassinate Fidel Castro? That was until the
conspiracy became reality after the CIA released its own lurid
documentation on the Mafia recruitment effort.

One day, maybe not too far in the future, we will look back at
the conspiracies surrounding UFOs and find out that they too are
revealed as realities. Of course, disclosure has been promised
many times by those allegedly "in the know."

Hell, the folks in EXOPOLITICS predict "DISCLOSURE" as imminent
every chance they get, and then come up with the MOST RIDICULOUS
OF EXCUSES for why it is denied to the citizens of the world
when their ill-issued predictions go up in smoke.

But this article is NOT about true UFO Disclosure. It is about
the strange bedfellows that UFOlogists seem to keep in their
alleged pursuit of truth. You see, when you climb high enough up
the ladder of UFOlogy and are prominent in the field; the
strangest of characters approach you with promises of
"DISCLOSURE."

Normally, THE RUSE GOES SOMETHING LIKE THIS: Approach subject
UFOlogist and make claims that you are in the know. Then shower
said Ufologist with feelings of "eliteness" by offering them an
inside look at the truth. When they TAKE THE BAIT, deny them the
information promised, but keep them on a string with promises of
information that will slowly be revealed in good measure and
time.

Now you are probably wondering, when I was the International
Director of MUFON, did this ever happen to me? Actually it
didn't, but then again I made it public knowledge that I would
NOT accept inside sources who were not willing to go public with
their identity and their claims. So I was NOT willing to play
the game to begin with and those who refuse to dance are never
asked to.

Speaking of strange relationships, in 2009, billionaire
entrepeneur Robert Bigelow decided to hire MUFON to conduct UFO
investigations on behalf of his new venture, BAASS, an alleged
aerospace company interested in discovering and exploiting novel
and cutting edge technologies that relate to space travel.

"HUNT FOR THE SKINWALKER: SCIENCE CONFRONTS THE UNEXPLAINED AT A
REMOTE RANCH IN UTAH" - By Colm A Kelleher and George Knapp,
ISBN# 9781416505211

http://www.amazon.com/Hunt-Skinwalker-Science-Confronts-Unexplained/dp/14165=
05210

Well what is so unusual about that? Maybe it has to do with the
following interesting facts:

 - John Schuessler, MUFON Board Member and former International
 Director was offered a U.S. government security clearance
 allegedly related to his consulting work for Mr. Bigelow. Now
 whether John was actually given that clearance, I can't say for
 sure, but I was one of the people interviewed as part of his
 background investigation.

 - Mr. Bigelow did NOT fund MUFON's work for BAASS, instead
 "sponsors" that Bigelow revealed to John Schuessler but not to
 the other MUFON Board Members put up the money.

 - Mr. Bigelow invalidated his own legal contract with MUFON by
 refusing to abide by the original deal struck with MUFON and
 instead changed the terms mid-stream, something the MUFON Board
 of Directors acquiesced to despite my protests.

 - During the project, MUFON provided both historical MUFON
 files as well as current MUFON case files (including witness
 information) to BAASS. To cover MUFON legally, the MUFON UFO
 reporting form was modified to collect the witness' permission
 to offer their sighting data to a third party, the only third
 party being BAASS.

 - When I uncovered some very damaging information about the
 Skinwalker Ranch (also owned by Mr. Bigelow) and provided that
 information to the MUFON Board along with my doubts about the
 true agenda of the BAASS-MUFON relationship, the MUFON Board
 unethically bypassed me and communicated in secret with BAASS
 in an attempt to continue the project.

When I found out about this unethical behavior, initiated by my
former friend and current International Director Clifford Clift
and MUFON Board member Jan Harzan (probably the next
International Director after Cliff retires), I resigned
immediately from the MUFON Board and the International Director
position.

 - Rather than reveal the truth of why I resigned to the MUFON
membership, Cliff decided to whitewash the unfortunate events
while he swept his broom around MUFON, portraying me as an inept
leader who brought MUFON to financial ruin and presenting
himself as the savior of the organization. His betrayal stung me
to my very core, as I considered him a friend for 14 years until
he revealed who he truly was.

At the 2010 MUFON Symposium he told the MUFON State Directors
that I left MUFON because the "truth" I was seeking was not the
same "truth" the MUFON Board of Directors sought.

So for the leading UFO organization in the world, whose mission
statement is the scientific investigation of UFOs, WHAT TRUTH is
Mr. Clift alluding to?

Maybe it is the sad truth that without a wealthy benefactor
behind MUFON, the organization is but an army of volunteers with
no funding for their scientific investigation, and if staying
within the good graces of the only willing benefactor means
compromising ethics and the duties and obligations a non-profit
organization has to its membership and to the public, then so be
it.

I suggest that the MUFON membership deserves more from their
leadership. In fact, every MUFON member should take Mr. Clift up
on his promises of transparency and demand answers to the
following questions which should be posed to the MUFON Board of
Directors:


1) Does John Schuessler currently have an active government
security clearance and for what reason was it granted? What is
John's current relationship to BAASS and Mr. Bigelow?

2) Does MUFON still provide current UFO reports to BAASS? If
not, then why is the 3rd party witness election still on MUFON's
"Report a UFO" form on the MUFON web site?

3) Is the MUFON Board of Directors willing to give an accurate
history including publicly releasing all supporting
documentation of the MUFON-BAASS legal contract that encompasses
the entire project period?

4) What is MUFON's current relationship to BAASS and Mr.
Bigelow?

The MUFON Board of Directors may be in pursuit of their own
truth, but the real truth has an odd way of surfacing even after
many years, as the CIA-Mafia affair shows. How can those in the
field of Ufology seek disclosure from outside if they are not
willing to seek disclosure from within first?

The choices made by the MUFON Board during the MUFON-BAASS
project demands complete openness and transparency so that the
conspiracy theory behind the MUFON-BAASS relationship is put to
rest.

MUFON's leadership should practice what it preaches and leave no
details hidden if it wishes MUFON to retain any semblance of
respectability in this field already filled with enough
unanswered questions and shadowy characters and organizations.

It is time for MUFON to sweep its own house...
