What I find most remarkable in the controversy Annie Jacobsen's
'Area 51' book has stirred up is not the astounding number of
basic factual errors she made in writing her book, nor the issue
of whether her single source, retired E.G.& G. engineer Alfred
O'Donnell, was deluded into believing the fabulous
Stalin/Mengele disinformational back story he was provided in
1951 (presumably a US government hoax fabricated for the most
likely purpose of testing O'Donnell, and others, ability to
maintain security when exposed to a deliberately and
intentionally provocative fake scenario before being read into
later, genuine black projects), but the quite intriguing fact
that, if his basic story is true, that elements of the US
government's military and intelligence communities would, within
only four years after the Roswell incident (and whatever it may
have actually been), be using the UFO and ET themes as a means
to both test security consciousness, surface hostile agents, and
to utilize same in a manner which strongly suggests a form of
domestic intelligence psyop replete with self-denying disinfo
elements which, even if exposed, or simply rumored within such
circles, readily functioned as the basis for and means to
exploit and simultaneously plausibly deny the genuine basis for
those aspects of the UFO phenomenon which actually do suggest a
reasonable foundation for evidence of some form of advanced non-
human intelligence periodically making its presence known in
select cases, such as the 1957 RB-47 incident or the 1976
Iranian F-4B encounter, among many others.

These kind of disinfo ploys or security-testing ruses, using
faked UFOs and/or "non-human" entities, would suggest they were
successfully used more than once domestically, such as in the
scenario Nick Redfern describes in his "Body Snatchers in the
Desert" book, wherein two anonymous sources describe very
similar scenarios being used for presumably similar counter-
intelligence (CI) purposes. Kind of makes one wonder just how
and why these CI ploys originated, and how often they have been
used since, over time.

The psyop conducted on Paul Bennewitz comes to mind, and begs
the question of the ethics and legality of such CI "games" being
domestically used on civilians, including UFO researchers, over
the intervening decades, and on others for military and intell
purposes for a wide variety of reasons. There are a number of
other cases where such hoaxed scenarios have been used.

Kind of a "Swiss Army Knife" of many disinfo/psyop "tools," or
"sources and methods," that both provide cover for real black
ops and projects, further muddy the waters of ufology, and
create a swarming school of red herrings for those so
deliberately exposed to such distracting and diversionary
techniques to pursue in a falsely enigmatic and fruitless wild
goose chase, like a magiian's slight of hand. The repercussions
within society and to history and belief when these stories do
finally surface are manifold and disturbing.

What concerns me is the subtle long-term sociological and
societal impact and manipulative "black propaganda" effects such
hoaxed fabrications have on ufology, and societal belief systems
in general, which I think are both unhealthy and quite possibly
damaging to the body politic and our right to know the truth
about our government's policies (and how the use of such
misbegotten and deleterious practices has a disruptive,
undermining effect on the authority and trust in the
institutions of government), and  I think such techniques and
methods, especially when employed domestically on US citizens
and civilans, should be thoroughly investigated, exposed, and
made illegal due to their potential negative effects and impact
on society and the right to know in a democratic republic.

What do others here think of the morals, ethics, and legality of
the use of such practices by elements of the government? Shoud
they be the subject of Congressional investigation and
legislation to legally ban such, essentially, negative and
destructive domestic disinformational manipulation or psyops?

To me, it smacks of the manipulation and propagandizing efforts
of the USAF and CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel and the policies
they recommended be used to suppress and divert genuine interest
in and research concerning the actual UFO phenomenon. It
disgusts me that elements of the US government can so eaily and
blithely get away with secretly distorting, covering up, and
lying to the American electorate about such a seriously
important subject of real scientific and societal interest and
significance for the last 65 years.
