Top Secret Libraries: For Government Eyes Only

It's a fact that just about every government agency has its very own in-house library. And, in most of those examples, the libraries are huge. And, they're almost always denied to the public. However, a few snippets of data have surfaced out of some government libraries. We'll begin with the Government Communications Headquarters: the U.K. version of the U.S. National Security Agency. Back in the late 1990s, an English UFO researcher, Robin Cole, decided to try and figure out the full truth of the GCHQ-UFO connection. Surprisingly, Cole found a lot of material and to the extent that an arm of the U.K. intelligence community paid Cole a visit - something that happened when Cole published his own self-made document on what GCHQ knew of UFOs. After that, things started to go missing from Cole's home. His phone was "bugged." The list went on. As for that GCHQ library, here's what Cole told me: "I don’t want to reveal too much about the source of this information," explained Cole, "but they, too, have what you could call a 'close association' to GCHQ. Basically, GCHQ have this really extensive library of books and manuscripts [italics mine] and the employees are apparently allowed access to it. But I was most interested when somebody asked me if I had a copy of the U.S. Air Force’s UFO investigation study, Project Blue Book. 'No,' I replied. 'Oh, we’ve got a copy at work,' they said and It turned out that this person wasn’t able to access the Blue Book report, but they knew it was there as they’d seen it at a previous point and read it. They also said that there were fifteen or twenty other UFO books on display or on microfilm." How extensive might the GCHQ library be? Who knows?

Now, let's focus our attentions on the matter of demons and government libraries. In November 1991, a Nebraskan priest named Ray Boeche had a clandestine meeting with a pair of physicists working on a top secret program for the U.S. Department of Defense. The team was called the "Collins Elite." Both men were deeply worried and were looking for advice and guidance from Boeche on the project in which they were immersed. The classified operation revolved around attempts by the DoD to contact what were termed “Non-Human Entities,” or NHEs. Most people might call them extraterrestrials, aliens, or in terms of the field of Ufology and popular culture – “the Grays.” For a while, the DoD referred to them in those terms, too. But not for long: as Ray Boeche listened carefully and concerned by what his Deep Throat sources told him, he came to realize that the Pentagon was dabbling in decidedly dangerous areas. The scientists explained to Boeche that the contact with the NHEs was not achieved on a face to face basis, but, rather, in mind to mind fashion. Telepathy, ESP, and channeling were the primary ways via which interaction occurred. But, as the program progressed, something ominous occurred: it was as if a dark cloud descended on all those tied to the program. Bad luck, illness, and even death blighted the members of the team. Such was the extent of the negativity that surrounded the operation the DoD had come to a startling and disturbing conclusion.

Although the DoD had initially assumed the entities they were dealing with were extraterrestrial, over time that view changed significantly and dramatically. Indeed, within seven or eight months of the commencement of the project, the scientists on board came to believe that they were not dealing with aliens from far away galaxies, but with highly dangerous, deceptive, manipulative demons – as in literal demons from a literal Hell. The UFO presence on our planet, the Pentagon group believed, was designed to seduce us into believing aliens were amongst us, when the reality – as they saw it – was that we were being led to accept that belief as a means to allow Satan’s minions to get his claws into us. Such was the concern on the part of the DoD about their actions – namely opening a door or a portal to something monstrous and malignant – they began digging deep into the ancient past for the answers to the UFO puzzle. It was ancient demons, rather than ancient aliens, that tasked the finest minds of the Pentagon.

As incredible as it might sound, those attached to the Pentagon program consulted numerous early texts and books - from an in-house library - that addressed the field of demonology, chiefly to try and figure out the extent to which the UFO phenomenon – some of it or, perhaps, even all of it – was the result of demonic activity and attendant satanic deception. A great deal of time was spent studying numerous books on ancient and modern demonology, including John Deacon and John Walker’s 1601 work, Dialogical Discourses of Spirits and Devils, Reginald C. Thompson’s Devils and Evil Spirits of Babylonia, and Edward Langton’s Essentials of Demonology. The Deacon and Walker book presented to its readers a long and complicated history of demonology, the means by which demons could get their grips into easily manipulated people, and the deceptive nature of these unholy creatures – all of which was unsettlingly familiar to the Department of Defense team. As for Reginald C. Thompson’s book, this was the one title, more than any other, that deeply influenced the mindset of the Pentagon project.

The Department of Defense team also spent countless hours reviewing Emil Schneweis’ Angels and Demons according to Lactantius. The Lactantius of the title was a Christian and a writer who was born around 230 to 240 AD, in Africa, and who firmly believed that the whole purpose of this bizarre and disturbing interaction with the people of Earth had just one goal: the enslavement of the human soul. The Pentagon also took great note of the books of Dr. Merrill F. Unger. A prestigious writer of dozens of books – and someone who obtained A.B. and PhD degrees at John’s Hopkins University and his Th.M and Th.D degrees at Dallas Theological Seminary – one title of Unger that the Department of Defense team studied in detail was his 1971 book, Demons in the World Today. And, one particular section of Dr. John Warwick Montgomery’s Principalities and Powers was highlighted by the Pentagon: “There is a definite correlation between negative occult activity and madness." Nicole Malone’s, The Bible, Physics, and the Abilities of Fallen Angels also captured the attention of the DoD. What's particularly intriguing is that, somehow, the Pentagon got their hands on numerous original books - some going back long ago. In some cases we're talking about books focusing on demonology and going back hundreds of years. That suggests an incredible scenario. And, how many other "secret libraries" might exist in government agencies? That's something to ponder on.
