A couple of days ago I focused on the connection between government agents and alien abductees. The connection revolved around how and why there are people in government who have deep interests in the abduction phenomenon. Today, I thought I would expand on this phenomenon with some intriguing cases. I'll begin with one of the world’s most famous alien abductions of all time, that of Betty and Barney Hill. They were abducted on the night of September 19, 1961, while returning to their New Hampshire home, after a vacation in Canada. Like so many abductees, the pair was subjected to stressful, intrusive medical procedures on-board a UFO. Their abductors were non-human things with penetrating, staring eyes. The U.S. Air Force soon opened a file on the Hill affair, a copy of which details their extraordinary experience.
Moving on, there's the May 23, 1973 alien abduction experience of Judy Doraty, who, while driving near Houston, Texas late at night, encountered a disk-shaped UFO. Following a series of bad dreams, it became clear there was a period of "missing time" in Doraty’s recollections of what happened to her. Upon being hypnotized by UFO researcher Dr. Leo Sprinkle, Doraty recalled the portion of the event which had been almost completely erased from her mind. She described seeing a calf being taken aboard the UFO, "like it’s being sucked up." Doraty also recalled being taken on board the craft. In no time at all, the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI), at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico opened a secret file on Doraty and her experience – something which was prompted by the unique nature of her kidnapping. Namely, that Doraty was abducted because she had stumbled upon a so-called "cattle mutilation" event. The implication being that the ETs tried to wipe her memory clean, as a means to prevent her from revealing what she had encountered. The AFOSI was deeply concerned by the cattle mutilation/alien abduction connection, as will become apparent.
How about the Charles Hickson and Calivin Parker’s late-night kidnapping from the banks of the Pascagoula River in October 1973? They recalled, under hypnosis, being taken on-board a UFO by creatures with "lobster-like claws." The pair became the subject of intense scrutiny by military personnel at Keesler Air Force Base, Mississippi. Intelligence staff at Keesler kept a careful watch on Parker and Hickson for months, secretly monitoring their activities. Myrna Hansen’s encounter of May 5, 1980, which occurred as she was heading to Eagle’s Nest, New Mexico, after a road trip to Oklahoma, is a classic. Hansen experienced a typical alien abduction experience. Notably, and just like Judy Doraty seven years earlier, Hansen saw a calf being "sucked" into the UFO. More intriguing, Hansen recalled being taken to an underground facility, where aliens implanted her with a sophisticated tracking device. When Hansen described the appearance of the facility, it quickly caught the attention of the AFOSI at Kirtland Air Force Base. There was a very good reason for this: the facility she described was an off-limits, underground bunker at the base’s weapons storage area; the implication being that the military and the ETs may have been secretly working together, deep underground. Extensive files were opened on Hansen’s experience.
In the mid-1990s, UFO researcher Greg Bishop struck up a friendship with the late alien abductee, Dr. Karla Turner, who was the author of a number of books on her experiences, including Into the Fringe. The pair corresponded by mail. As Greg revealed after Karla’s death, mail sent to and from the pair arrived already opened – torn and resealed. On other occasions, the letters weren’t even resealed. Both Greg and Karla were convinced this was all part of some mind-manipulating program, a government-driven operation designed to psychologically destabilize the pair by letting them know that the government was watching them. Moving on: For years, numerous abductees have reported close encounter with not just UFOs and aliens, but with what have become infamously known as "black helicopters." These usually unmarked craft are reported flying over the homes of abductees. On occasion, they will hover over the same homes for minutes at a time, and at precariously low levels. Typically, they turn up within a day or two of an alien abduction experience. All of the evidence suggests that the helicopters are piloted by "black-ops" teams who have three, primary agendas: (A) to try and determine the range and scope of alien abductions; (B) to frighten the experiencers into staying quiet on their experiences; and (C) to figure out the true nature of the extraterrestrial agenda.
The black helicopter-based experiences of numerous people have been addressed over the years, including those of abductee Betty Andreasson, one of the most famous figures in Ufology. Such was the huge number of intrusions in the skies above the Andreasson home, Betty's husband, Bob, fired off a letter to the Army’s Office of the Adjutant General, insisting that someone provide answers. No one in officialdom would own up to anything. The mystery remained a mystery. Then, there is Ed Conroy. In 1990, Conroy, a journalist, wrote a book on the alien abduction experiences of Whitley Strieber, the author of a 1987 bestseller, Communion. Conroy’s book was titled Report on Communion. The more that Conroy delved into the experiences of Strieber, the more he became a victim of black helicopter invasions. Then, there were mysterious problems with Conroy’s answerphone – as if someone had tampered with it. On one occasion, while Conroy was out of town, his answerphone message was inexplicably changed. An attempt by shadowy figures to intimidate Conroy and dissuade him from digging into the Strieber affair? Almost certainly.
