Many people unacquainted with the complexities of the UFO puzzle assume that all talk of attempts by “the government” to silence certain players in the field is nothing but outright paranoia and lies. Even within Ufology there are those who dismiss such stories as X-Files-like nonsense. How wrong they all are. Published in 2005, Greg Bishop’s book, Project Beta: The Story of Paul Bennewitz, National Security, and the Creation of a Modern UFO Myth, provided the field of UFO research with what was without doubt one if its most important contributions in years.
The subject matter of Project Beta was an unusual one; and while seasoned researchers were already aware of certain aspects of this dark and ultimately tragic affair, those unaccustomed to the events in question might have been forgiven for thinking that they had stumbled upon a high-tech, X-Files-meets-Robert Ludlum-style thriller. But Project Beta told a very real story – one that was as harrowing as it was informative.
In essence, the truth-is-stranger-than-fiction book related the saga of physicist Paul Bennewitz, who, after digging into Air Force and National Security Agency secret projects at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico in the late 1970s that he believed were connected to the activities of sinister extraterrestrials and UFOs, was put under deep surveillance by the US military and intelligence services, and was bombarded by the murky world of officialdom with a mass of disinformation, faked stories and outright lies in order to divert him from his research – which worked. In fact, it worked rather too well, and led to the mental and psychological disintegration of Bennewitz.
JC Johnson will be the guest speaker on 2/18/2012, at Manzano Mesa, room #5 from 1:00 – 3 pm.
Adam Gorightly will be the guest speaker 3/3/2012, at Manzano Mesa, room #5 from 1:15 – 3 pm.
I am waiting on confirmation of a 3rd speaker for later in March. Will post when I know for certain.
Maps to Manzano Mesa, times and so on are always available at my NM UFO/Paranormal Forum site.
Further to my post of yesterday regarding Annie Jacobsen’s new book, Area 51, there’s another bit of data worth reporting on that also has a bearing on the story discussed in her book that has provoked so much controversy in the last few days – namely, that Roswell was a Cold War op initiated by Soviet Premier Josef Stalin and designed to cause “alien invasion”-based hysteria in the U.S.
This additional piece of data comes via the notorious MJ12 documents. I’m not talking about the original documents (the Eisenhower Briefing Document and the Truman memo) that first publicly surfaced in Tim Good’s 1987 book, Above Top Secret, and that shortly afterwards surfaced just about here, there and everywhere.
Rather, I’m talking about the even more controversial collection that came to researchers Dr. Robert Wood and Ryan Wood via UFO researcher Timothy Cooper in the mid-to-late-1990s.

Roswell, NM, April 18, 2011 –(PR.com)– Roswell, New Mexico author and historian John LeMay will appear on the Jeff Rense Program, a nationwide radio show, on Friday, April 22, 2011 at 10 p.m. Central time. LeMay will discuss his new book, “Roswell USA: Towns That Celebrate UFOs, Lake Monsters, Bigfoot, and Other Weirdness,” which has just been released by RoswellBooks.com. Also appearing on the show with LeMay will be UFO researcher Noe Torres, editor and publisher of LeMay’s new book.
A lifelong Roswell resident and author of several books about New Mexico history, LeMay takes a fresh new look at the Roswell Incident from an “insider’s perspective.” Having been born and raised in the Alien Capital of the World, LeMay’s childhood was filled with tales of flying saucers and alien autopsies, and he rubbed shoulders with several key Roswell eyewitnesses, including Robert Shirkey, who said he saw UFO debris being loaded onto a B-29 bomber at the Roswell Army Air Field in 1947.
In “Roswell USA,” LeMay presents a careful reconstruction of the famous UFO crash, including details that many readers may not have previously heard. He also provides a unique glimpse into what it’s like to live in the one place on Earth most closely associated with flying saucers and extraterrestrials. His analysis of the odd things that happen in Roswell, especially during its annual UFO festival, is priceless.
LeMay’s keen insight and marvelous sense of humor also focus on some of Roswell’s other, lesser-known mysteries, such as the “alien ghost” that haunts the New Mexico Rehabilitation Center. Written with an eye to historical accuracy, and perhaps an occasional wink of the eye, LeMay’s book also chronicles some of Roswell’s “other” mysteries, such as the “second” Roswell UFO Crash (in 1949); Bottomless Lakes where cars sink into the depths and monsters emerge to the surface; the Headless Horsewoman of Lover’s Lane, a Victorian Era Spook with an axe to grind against young lovers; and others.
Roswell is by no means the only town to use strange events and bizarre creatures to draw tourism dollars. Nor was it the first. In the second part of LeMay’s book, he takes us on a tour of other towns all over the U.S. that celebrate weirdness – such as Churubusco, Indiana, where a giant turtle sighting in 1948 has served the town well in tourism for the last 60 plus years, and Flatwoods, West Virginia, where a one-time alleged sighting of a strange alien monster has since resulted in the “Flatwood Monster Days” festival. Also, there is Lake Champlain, New York, which has since become America’s very own Loch Ness. Point Pleasant, West Virginia, celebrates Mothman Days and has its own Mothman Museum. Kelley, Kentucky, is the site where aliens from outer space laid siege to a farm house in 1955. And, many UFO enthusiasts visit a lonely country cemetery in Aurora, Texas, where lie the remains of an extraterrestrial, or so they believe, that crashed there in 1897.
“Roswell USA” is published by RoswellBooks.com, and is available in paperback for $14.95 from the author’s Web site at RoswellUSA.com. It is also available on Amazon.com and other major online retailers, and in the Roswell area, may be purchased at Roswell Landing, 205 North Main Street (Phone: 575-622-3036). It features over 50 photographs and illustrations, original cartoons by Neil Riebe, and impressive cover art by Brian Norwood. The book is also available for the Amazon Kindle.
Author John LeMay is the author of several books about the history of New Mexico. His works include “Images of America: Roswell,” “Postcards of America: Roswell,” “Images of America: Chaves County,” and “Images of America: Towns of Lincoln County,” all published by Arcadia Publishing of Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. LeMay is also an archivist and serves on the board of directors for the Historical Society for Southeast New Mexico, located in Roswell.
Noe Torres, editor and publisher of “Roswell USA,” has authored a number of books regarding historical UFO cases, including the critically-acclaimed “Ultimate Guide to the Roswell UFO Crash” published in 2010 by RoswellBooks.com. Torres is the section director for the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) in South Texas and has appeared on numbers television and radio programs. He is a regular speaker at the annual Roswell UFO Festival held each July in Roswell, New Mexico.

Search warrants released Friday afternoon also shed light on gunman Reza’s mental state before police say he went on a deadly rampage at Emcore Monday.
According to the search warrants, Reza’s own nephew told police Reza sounded “crazy.”
Erik Placencia told police his uncle “talked about Emcore planting chips in him and that employees could talk to him and hear his thoughts.” The nephew also reportedly told officers Reza refused to get help saying he was not crazy, and the technology was making him do the things he was doing.
Reza was a former Emcore employee.
According to the search warrants, Reza also reportedly told his nephew people at work were “watching females in the bathroom,” and “he was fired from Emcore to keep him from ‘taking them down.’”
