How To Take Down A UFO Organization 101
[by James Carrion]

I have written before about the coming war between the
Intelligence Agencies and Ufology and a series of recent events
lead me to believe that this war which started some time ago is
now in full battle.

You see, these intelligence agencies are absolutely obsessed
with control and when an intelligence source like MUFON acts
outside of the box the intelligence agencies would like to
contain it in, then the gloves come off and the punches fly.

MUFON - an intelligence source? Yep, that is exactly how the US
Air Force Office of Special Investigation (AFOSI) and other
related three letter agency see any UFO organization that
collects detailed data on strange things flying around our
atmosphere. Of course, AFOSI knows what's operating in US Air
Space, but they want to control what data reaches say the
Russians and the Chinese about what is flying around. AFOSI
prefers that the general public think of it as a "UFO" and not
the latest US stealth fighter or bomber, but of greater concern
is what our less than believing and less than glazed eye enemy
intelligence analysts glean from the published sighting data.

Recently, US Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned of the
unanticipated advances in Chinese stealth technology that led to
the development of the J-20 stealth fighter. Did the Chinese
develop this technology of their own accord or did they "borrow"
it through espionage and gleaning open intelligence sources.
Regardless of how they did it, clamping down on any intelligence
source foreign enemies can exploit is what keeps the AFOSI in

If an intelligence source cannot be contained, then the next
logical action is to terminate it, the same way NICAP was, once
it outlived its usefulness to those in the know and in control.
MUFON has been around for 40 plus years and to bring down an
established grass roots organization requires much more finesse
with proven destabilization techniques and tools. Let me share
some of those with you.

Tool # 1: Agent Provocateurs

An Agent Provocateur per Wikipedia's definition is a person
employed by the police or other entity to act undercover to
entice or provoke another person to commit an illegal act. More
generally, the term may refer to a person or group that seeks to
discredit or harm another by provoking them to commit a wrong or
rash action.

When I was the International Director of MUFON, a MUFON member
who recently joined approached me with the alleged criminal
record of a MUFON State Director. It was suggested that I use
the criminal record information as grounds for removing the
State Director. I did not.

Subsequently this State Director became very vocal and critical
of anything that I did at MUFON beginning with his criticism of
the Discovery Channel show "UFOs Over Earth" that I was involved
in. He started a long and tireless campaign of spreading false
information and inciting others within MUFON to action.

Then this State Director's criminal record was released to other
MUFON members from an anonymous email address (perpetrator now
known) which unleashed another endless tirade of accusations
against myself and the MUFON Board.

Now you are probably wondering where I am going with this?
Consider for a moment that the new MUFON member who gave me a
copy of the criminal record, the alleged State Director victim
and the perpetrator of the anonymous email are all on the same
intelligence agency payroll and you can get an idea of how a
defamation and smear campaign works. Agent provocateurs can be
very effective in inciting unrest inside of an organization. I
think many in MUFON can put names to the characters. I will
reveal their names in due time.

Does this sound paranoid to you? Maybe, but in the shadowy world
of spies and counter-spies where a country's national security
is at stake, you best put your paranoid hat on, because anything
is fair game.

Tool # 2: Rumor and Innuendo

Internet message boards like the Open Minds Forum, Above Top
Secret and even MUFON's own original message board (RIP) which
are based on public posts from anonymous individuals are an
excellent medium for keeping smear campaigns going. I have
already posted many articles on my blog about the disinformation
tactics used on these boards and the dangers of anonymity.
Critical minds can normally read between the lines, but many do

Despite the dangers these open media sources pose for the truth,
it was still a very bad idea for the new MUFON International
Director to trash MUFON's original board in favor of one that
does not allow divergence of opinion or is too heavily
moderated. Now the anonymous intelligence agency thugs active on
the remaining boards can point to this as evidence of an
organization that is more interested in its own image rather
than in promoting open discourse and truth.

Of course the intelligence agencies like to have multiple data
streams to push their message, so UFO email Lists are also used
to reinforce the intended message.

Tool # 3: Human Nature

It is human nature to become defensive when attacked especially
if you feel you are outnumbered. Which defenses you mount will
tell whether you repel the attack or are overrun. Sometimes the
agencies will simply exploit ego or leadership style to ensure
an intended result.

Clifford Clift has done an incredibly good job of causing
dissent within MUFON's ranks by firing productive State
Directors, taking an authoritarian bureaucratic stance on
managing MUFON's image at the expense of the truth, and is
leading MUFON into dangerous waters by plotting a course that
started with his actions trying to preserve the MUFON-BAASS

A petition to the MUFON Board of Directors is currently
circulating the MUFON membership and across the Internet
demanding changes within the MUFON Board. The ranks of MUFON are
not happy.

Tool # 4: Person of Influence

A strategically placed individual on the MUFON Board can
reinforce rumor and innuendo that organizational collapse is
imminent, that the peasants are rising in revolt and that
additional severe (but counterproductive) methods should be used
to regain control. It is at this point that the organization is
in most danger of sinking because without an ethical and moral
compass, it is now floating aimlessly.

After I resigned from MUFON, I discovered that someone on the
MUFON Board was leaking emails intended only for Board Members
to an outside third party. Someone on the Board (perhaps the
strategically placed individual) accused me of hijacking Board
Member computers and being the source of the leak. The MUFON
Board would rather believe that their computers were hijacked
rather than consider that there is an inside mole.

End Game

If the MUFON Board and those critical minds within the
organization can't put up the proper defenses to the current
Intelligence Agencies' onslaught, in the end, yet another UFO
organization will bite the dust, nothing but a page in the long
and troubled history of the UFO conundrum. Perhaps another will
rise to take its place and this time the watchers and handlers
will take even greater care in ensuring its control. End game -
Ufology loses, Intelligence Agencies win.
