I have commented previously that the UFO/ET field is an intelligence agent's playground and that novices and experts alike have to be careful. The best way to keep from getting burnt too badly, is draw from a wide variety of sources that have been time tested. Spectacular new, emotionally engaging controversial cases, must be dispassionately viewed in the light of earlier time tested cases. I have been hoaxed a time or two myself and have learned from the experiences. It just goes with the territory, if one wants to keep a open mind. The damage to me has been slight because I draw from so many sources and if the accuracy of the cases are only 50% I am still in good shape. I have a very diversified portfolio of cases upon which I draw my conclusions some of which I am putting up on my blog mixed with my essays.
The first thing that a person needs to realize when they venture into exopolitics is that they are entering into a information war. One side wants to get the truth out to the public and the other side is intent upon keeping the truth from the public. It is often the case that those who value truth have trouble understanding and protecting themselves from those who don't want them to have that truth. For that reason the truthful can easily be led astray in the battle for their own minds. Sun Tzu in The Art of War states, "that to be successful in the battlefield one has to both know oneself and to know ones adversary."
Its not enough to just know ones self. One has to also know the adversary. In the field of exopolitics hoaxes range from simple, to very sophisticated counterintelligence operations. A simple hoax may be of the Dan Burish type where a couple of low level individuals build up a story over time that has some basis on previous UFO/ET evidence. The idea of a clean sphere for a sick alien seems to be based on earlier cases that involved the construction of protected environments for various ET species. The fact that the idea of a sick alien case has not been confirmed by others, the testimony of Kit Green, and the fact that many close to Dan have become disillusioned, leads me to believe this to be a simple hoax. Simple hoaxes like more sophisticated ones rely on building up a story, not only engage the mind, but also the victims emotions. The idea is to so involve the individual in the story so completely, that they loose perspective of their overall situational awareness to become vulnerable to manipulation and predation.
The motive for a simple hoax is often based on both the need for attention and hope for some financial reward rather than a attempt to suppress the truth of the UFO/ET situation. The motivation for the more sophisticated counterintelligence operations is to effect perception management. situational awareness, of the targeted individuals and society as a whole. While the jury may still be out on the Serpo stories I must insert a word of caution. While there is still a small chance that the stories are not disinformation the window is closing fast with the release of the Reagen Briefing Story. http://www.americanchronicle.com/articles/viewArticle.asp?articleID=41939
Serpo is looking like another one of those sophisticated counterintelligence operations involving several expert individuals who work together as a team. Us old timers remember the Bennewitz disinformation operation run by AFOSI that discredited UFO researcher Bill Moore. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Bennewitz Bill admitted taking part in it by reporting back on Bennewitz's mental breakdown. While Victor Martinez who is the mouthpiece for the DIA 6 may not realize it, Bob Collins may be the only person between himself and the edge of the cliff. It is very possible that Bob is right and that this is a disinformation operation drawing from the UFO/ET literature to throw novices off track from the revelations in his book Exempt From Disclosure. I think that Bob may have gotten too close to the truth for some insiders comfort, just as had Paul Bennewiz in the 1980's. The target this time seems to be Bob and his book. http://www.amazon.com/Exempt-Disclosure-Robert-M-Collins/dp/0976642603
Recently a individual on one of Bob's Internet mailing lists tried to point out some of the psychology going on between Victor and Bob over the latest alleged Reagan UFO Briefing release. While I know that Bob is getting old and cranky like some of the rest of us, Victor ignores Bob at his own very great peril. I see two different possible scenarios here. One is that the DIA 6 are basically telling the truth and the other is that they are not. If the alleged releases are mostly bogus, then judging from Victors elated and excited emotional state the perpetrators have him exactly where they want him and Victor is in deep psychological trouble. If these revelations are true then Victor has a right to be excited and elated and the more power to him. I always try to hope for the best but prepare for the worst.
Still, if I were in Victor's shoes I would be doing a lot of research on counterintelligence disinformation operations with particular attention to the Paul Bennewiz case. What we in the public seem to be privy to is a ongoing struggle within the intelligence community for the peoples right to know involving a number of key individuals inside and outside of government since the time of Bennewiz. If Serpo turn out to be bogus, a lot of innocent people are going to be hurt and discouraged from involving themselves in the whole UFO/ET field and that would be a shame.
It has happened before and its going to happen again, I am afraid. Remember the old saying, "don't put all your eggs in one basket." Diversification is good. I trade a little in the stock market and when the optimism and hype build us on a stock, I know its time to sell. It's not good to fall in love with the stocks in a portfolio either. Are there similarities between the psychology of how stocks and UFO/ET cases are traded? You bet there are. I'm not buying the DIA 6 stories, I'm selling. I don't jump to conclusions quickly, I wait and study both stocks and UFO cases until the evidence builds up for or against. I hope I am wrong in this case as I always like to think the best of people.
