Cosmic Cointelpro Timeline
Former WWII Supreme Allied Commander, Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower wins election as President of the US. Truman refuses to run for president again. The Republicans choose Nixon as Eisenhower's running mate, to balance the ticket with a West Coast conservative. The Republicans win by a landslide on November 4th. Meanwhile, John Kennedy is elected to the Senate, a particularly impressive feat because the rest of the nation is sweeping Republican candidates into offices with Eisenhower.
In November, the first successful American hydrogen bomb test.
National Security Agency (NSA). On October 24, 1952, President Truman signed National Security Council Directive 6, a seven-page document that eliminated the first attempt at uniting all military signal intelligence (SIGINT) operations, and created the NSA at Fort Meade, Maryland. Directive 6 remains classified to this day.
As a child in 1952, Jack Sarfatti claims to have received phone calls from the mechanical voice of a conscious computer aboard a spaceship, recruiting him along with 400 others for some special project. These calls have similarities to the mechanical voice which talked to Andrijah Puharich via his tape recorder. Sarfatti was later associated with Puharich.
Puharich first contacts The Nine a group of channeled being via a medium.
During the CIA's MK-ULTRA mind control program, John Lilly briefed the intelligence community on his work to map out the brains of animals using implanted electrodes. He abandoned this line of work because he felt it was unethical.
John Lilly studied the effects of sensory deprivation tanks, and also briefed the intelligence community with his progress. Lilly refused to let any of his work be classified, and ended up leaving the National Institute of Health when he found that he could not work without the interference of the government
Project Moonstruck, CIA:
implants in brain and teeth
Wilbert Smith: "If, as appears evident, the Flying Saucers are emissaries from some other civilisation, and actually do operate on magnetic principles, we have before us the Fact that we have missed something in magnetic theory but have a good indication of the direction in which to look for the missing quantities. It is therefore strongly recommended that work on Project Magnet be continued and expanded to include experts in each of the various fields involved in these studies" From an interim report dated 25th June 1952 Wilbert Smith was the electrical engineer who convinced the Canadian government to establish Project Magnet to study the UFO phenomenon and later served as engineer-in-charge of the project.
Dr. Walther Riedel: "I am completely convinced that [UFOs] have an out-of-world basis." "First, the skin temperatures of structures operating under the observed conditions would make it impossible for any terrestrial structure to survive. The skin friction of the missile at those speeds at those altitudes would melt any metals or nonmetals available. Second, consider the high acceleration at which they fly and maneuver... In some descriptions the beast spirals straight up. If you think of the fact that the centrifugal force in a few minutes of such a maneuver would press the crew against the outside, and do likewise to the blood, you see what I mean. Third.... There are many occurrences where they have done things that only a pilot could perform but that no human pilot could stand. Fourth, in most of the reports there is a lack of visible jet. Most observers report units without visible flame . . . and no trail. If it would be any known type of jet, rocket, piston engine, or chain-reaction motor, there would be a very clear trail at high altitude. It is from no power unit we know of..."
"The least improbable explanation is that these things are artificial and controlled ... My opinion for some time has been that they have an extraterrestrial origin." From LIFE Magazine, April 7, 1952. Riedel was research director and chief designer at Germany's rocket center in Peenemunde and also worked on classified projects for the U.S. after WW2.
Dr. Maurice Biot "The least improbable explanation is that these things UFO's are artificial and controlled. My opinion for some time has been that they have an extraterrestrial origin." Biot was one of the world's leading aerodynamicists and mathematical physicists. Life, April 7, 1952.
United States, Washington, D.C. Perhaps the best documented UFO incident in history:
Harry G. Barnes "For six hours ... there were at least ten unidentifiable objects moving above Washington. They were not ordinary aircraft." Barnes was Senior Air Traffic Controller for the C.A.A. in 1952.
Dr. H. Marshall Chadwell "Sightings of unexplained objects at great altitude and traveling at high speeds in the vicinity of major US defense installations are of such nature that they are not attributable to natural phenomena or known types of aerial vehicles." Chadwell, former assistant director of the CIA's Office of Scientific Intelligence, in a December, 1952 memo to then-director of the CIA, General Walter B. Smith.
Walter Bedell Smith "The Central Intelligence Agency has reviewed the current situation concerning unidentified flying objects which have created extensive speculation in the press and have been the subject of concern to Government organizations... Since 1947, approximately 2,000 official reports of sightings have been received and of these, about 20% are as yet unexplained."
"It is my view that this situation has possible implications for our national security which transcend the interests of a single service. A broader, coordinated effort should be initiated to develop a firm scientific understanding of the several phenomena which apparently are involved in these reports..." From a 1952 memorandum to the National Security Council. Smith was Director of the CIA from 1950 to 1953
Argentina, Veronica. Hundreds of residents witnessed six discs circling above the town, the disappearing into the night sky. This sighting was written within hours of a similar report from Captain Paul Carpenter near Denver. Carpenter reported the craft were traveling at 3,000 miles per hour, making it possible for the saucer to have appeared in both locations.
United States, Enid, Oklahoma. Sidney Eubank went to the Enid police station and told Sergeant Vern Bennell that an enormous disk had buzzed his car as he drove between Bison and Waukonis on Highway 81. The rush of air made the car leave the road while the object flew west very fast.
United States, George AFB, California. Three men on the arms range, plus one Lt. Colonel 4 miles away witnessed five flat-white discs about the diameter of a C-47's wingspan (95') flew fast, made a 90 degree turn in a formation of three in front and two behind, and darted around, for 15-30 seconds.
United States, Norman, Oklahoma. Oklahoma State Patrolman Hamilton in a State Patrol airplane witnessed three dark discs hovered and then flew away, silhouetted against a dark cloud. 15 seconds.
United States, Wichita Falls, Texas.: Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Ellis. witnessed two disc-shaped objects, illuminated by a phosphorus light, flew at an estimated 1,000 m.p.h. for 15 seconds.
Coral Lorenzen published first issue of the APRO Bulletin. Within a few years the organization became one of America's most influential and respected civilian directed UFO organizations.
ATIC received 536 UFO reports in the month of July alone, with unknowns running at 40 percent.
Project Chatter. A navy mind control research project took place primarily in Germany. It involved the University of Rochester's Psychology Department Chairman, Dr. G. Richard Wendt, who had received a good deal of Navy money to study amphetamines, alcohol, and heroin. The navy flew Wendt to Germany in order to test a "truth serum" he had developed on some prisoners. The experiment was a failure, and Wendt lost his funding.
