The Milton William Cooper Speech
Editor’s note: What follows is a transcript of a 45-minute lecture given by Milton William Cooper on November 17, 1989, at the “Whole Life Expo” in Los Angeles, Calif. His speech was transcribed word-for-word from a micro-cassette recording.
“For those of you who don’t know who I am, I was raised in a military family. My family, my ancestors, since they came to this country, have been government people. We have served in the military, we have been patriots, we have fought in all the wars, we care about this country and believe in the constitution of the United States. We know, as many people don’t know, that the Constitution of the United States of America is the United States of America! And that’s why we’ve always been ready to do the things needed to preserve and protect it.
“When I left home I went into the Air Force, the Strategic Air Command. As a child I’d heard stories from my father and pi- lots, other pilots, my father was a pilot, about Foo Fighters, UFOs, strange craft that were not made on this Earth. And as a kid, you hear that in passing, and it’s neat, and you giggle about it, and you go out and play ‘Space Man,’ and you forget it. “When I was in the Air Force I met men who had participated in alien crashed-craft recoveries. Now this intrigued me, it interested me, but it was usually after quite a few bottles of beer that these stories would come out, and sometimes the next morning
I couldn’t remember what the heck the guy said.
“When I left the Air Force I went into the Navy, and this is where everything began to happen for me. I had originally intended to just go from service to service and do something that very few people have ever done before. I was a very adventurous, very crazy … young man, and I thought that that would be a pretty exciting life. I volunteered for submarines, and while on the submarine USS Tyroot, SS-416, on a transit between the Port- land/Seattle area and Pearl Harbor, which was our home port; the Pearl Harbor sub base, as the port lookout I saw a craft, saucer- shaped, the size of a Midway class carrier, aircraft carrier, for those of you who don’t know how big that is; it’s huge, come up out of the water approximately two and a half nautical miles off the port bow, which is about 45 degrees to the left of the pointy end of the submarine. It tumbled slowly on its own axis, and went up into the clouds. It appeared to be moving slowly to me at a distance of two and a half nautical miles, but in reality it was moving pretty fast because it came up out of the water, did a few tumbles, and it was gone!
“I then reported it to the officer of the deck. I didn’t tell him what it was that I saw because my Daddy didn’t raise no fools and in case nobody else saw it I didn’t want to be the only loony on board the ship. So I asked the officer of the deck to help me cover that area, and he did, which is common for officers and lookouts to help each other while on bridge watch because they all hang together if something bad happens. After a few seconds of watching, the same craft, or another craft exactly like it, came down out of the clouds, tumbled again on its own axis, and went into the water. Ensign Ball, who was the officer of the deck, was literally shocked! What could I say? Seaman Dejeralimo, who was the starboard lookout, had also witnessed this, and Ensign Ball called the captain to the bridge who was followed by the chief quartermaster who brought a 35MM camera, and we watched for between seven and 10 minutes the same craft, or different craft that looked exactly alike, enter and leave the water. It was an incredible show. I don’t know if they knew we were there, or if they even cared, but the craft did not glow, they were metal, they were machines without a doubt, they were obviously intelligently guided, they were huge, and having been in the Air Force and the Navy and knowing what it takes, I knew without a doubt, and know it today, that that machine was not made on the face of this earth. Because there’s nothing that man can make, that can fly through the air at a speed like that, tumble on its own axis, and enter the water and effectively fly beneath the sea.
“If you’ve ever been aboard an airplane and then gone aboard a submarine, I know there’s probably some of you in this room who have visited a submarine at one time or another, you can readily see just without even any of the technicalities involved how difficult such a thing would be to do. Where would it be built, that size? It was absolutely incredible. It changed my life because then all the stories that I’d heard all my life I knew were true, and I began seeing the world in a different light.
“It wasn’t long after that I was trained by Naval security in intelligence. I was sent to Vietnam. I was assigned as a patrol boat captain, first in DaNang harbor, given a crew, given a multimillion dollar patrol boat. My job was to gather intelligence from the people who lived around the harbor and the fishermen who transited the harbor, and maintain the safety and security of the harbor and the shipping. After about five months I was sent up North to the DMZ, to a place called Qua Vieaf [sp], on the Tacan [sp] river. Our base camp was at the river mouth. We were only three miles south of the North Vietnamese border and our job was to patrol the Tacan river from the river mouth to Dang Ha [sp], and then up the Quang Tree [sp] cutoff to Quang Tree city, again to get to know the people on the bank, gather intelligence, and to patrol every night and maintain the safety and security of the river and the river traffic.
“It was while there that I discovered that there was a tremendous amount of UFO and alien activity in Vietnam. It was always reported in official messages as ‘enemy helicopters.’ Now any of you who know anything about the Vietnam war know that the North Vietnamese did not have any helicopters, especially after our first couple of air raids into North Vietnam. Even if they had they would not have been so foolish as to bring them over the DMZ because that would have insured their demise. Our troops were fired on occasionally by these ‘enemy helicopters,’ enemy troops were fired on occasionally by these ‘enemy helicopters,’ and occasionally people would disappear. And on one instance that I know for sure at least one entire village disappeared one night because of alien activity. The reason they used the term ‘enemy helicopters’ in messages and dispatches was that in Vietnam you could be overrun at any time, no matter where you where. They did not bring crypto encoding equipment into Vietnam, I’m talking about the machinery. What we did is we had crypto tables, and once we every 24 hours those codes would be no good. So that’s what we used. We also, because of the inability to use crypto transmitting equipment, had to devise code words such as ‘enemy helicopters.’
“When I left Vietnam I was eventually attached to the headquarters staff of the Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet at Macalappa, [sp] Hawaii, which is a little hill overlooking Pearl Harbor, it’s a beautiful white building up there, and I was specifically attached to the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet.
“It was during this tour of duty that, in the course of my duties, documents were placed in my hands that were so unbelievable and so incredible that it took me quite a while to adjust to the fact that what I was seeing was real. Now for those of you who don’t understand how I could come to see this information, let me give you a little short course in security clearance and the need to know and how you get to see classified information if you’re in the military or in the government, it doesn’t matter which, the rules are the same.
“No. 1, you need a security clearance, and you’ve got to have clearance at the level that the information you want to see is classified at. In this instance it was classified ‘Top Secret, Magic, Restricted Information,’ which I came to find out later is the highest security classification in the Nation. To get that type of clearance, all you have to have is a Federal Bureau of Investigation background check, which takes about six months and they send federal agents to your home, to your old schools, to all your teachers, to your friends, to everybody you put down on your security clearance forms, to all your old ad- dresses, your neighbors, everybody that you’ve worked for, and it’s embarrassing because they don’t tell them what they’re checking on. They just show them their identification and start asking questions and that’s when you find out who’s your friend and who’s not, because a lot of people get scared and think, ‘Bill just robbed a bank and I’m not talking to him anymore.’ “Now once you get that it’s called a ‘B.I.’ and for those of you who have received a copy of my service record look on the first page, the DD-214 where it says ‘Security Clearance,’ you will see the term ‘B.I.’ That’s a ‘Bureau of Investigation’ clearance. Now at that point, you have the clearance for every- thing including Top Secret and above. What determines what you get to see is your need to know, and the job that you have determines what your need to know is.
“I was assigned to the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the United States Pacific Fleet, who had to know everything concerning his area of operations which was one half of the Earth’s surface; the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and all the land masses in between. Believe it or not, if we go to war, if we ever go to war, it’s the United States Navy that strikes the first blow and attempts to keep the enemy at bay while we can get ourselves together, at least historically. Nuclear weapons have kind of done away with that concept, but military commanders like to talk about it anyway.
“Because of this, and you have no conception of the amount of material and information that an area commander has to know; it’s unbelievable, and he has to keep track of this, he has to keep on top of it. He has to know what’s happening; he has to make the right decisions. Because it’s almost humanly impossible for anyone to do that, they have what’s called a briefing team, and it’s our job to make sure that he has the correct information, all the time, on a 24-hour basis. And every morning, be- tween 8 and 9 a.m., we would give a briefing which covered everything that happened in the previous 24 hours, and everything scheduled to happen in the next 24 hours, and all the pertinent intelligence reports that we had received since the last briefing that he needed to know and that his staff members needed to know. Occasionally we would get messages marked ‘Top Secret, Magic, Restricted Information,’ and it would be coded in such a way that all you had were answers to questions which you didn’t know what the questions were so you really didn’t know what the message was all about.
“But eventually I found myself in possession, holding two documents; one called ‘Project Grudge,’ another one called ‘Operation Majority.’ Project Grudge contained the history of alien involvement since around 1936, and it began talking about Germany’s involvement with a crashed disk that they had recovered in 1936 and were attempting to duplicate the technology. They were not successful despite what all these Nazi hunters want to tell you. If they had been successful, we would not have won the war, because you cannot beat those weapons! You cannot out fly those craft, you can’t even think about it with conventional aircraft. If Germany had been successful, we would now have a German flag up in front of this podium.
“They did make some headway. When we went into Punta Mundy [sp] we captured documents, we got some scientists, we got some hardware. The Russians also got some documents, some scientists, and some hardware. It wasn’t until 1947 that we were able to capture a craft, a whole craft, not all together but it was everything. And that occurred near the city of Roswell, New Mexico. There were dead aliens recovered from the craft. In Project Grudge I saw photographs of these dead aliens, of the craft; I saw photographs of live aliens; I saw photographs of autopsies, internal organs; I saw photographs of the alien designated ‘E.B.’ [or Ebe], which was held in captivity from 1949 until June 2, 1952, when he died. I saw the history of what they had been able to at that time put together, from incidents in the 1800s, which involved aliens and their craft.
“I saw the names of projects. I saw a project that was to fly recovered alien craft that had been recovered intact and undamaged, and some of them were recovered intact and undamaged, and how that happened I have no idea. It was called ‘Project Redlight,’ and first was conducted from the Tonopah test range in the Nevada test sight and then was moved to a specially built area, ordered built by president Eisenhower, called ‘Area-51,’ code named ‘Dreamland,’ in the Groom [sp] dry lake area of the Nevada test sight, by secret executive order. It doesn’t exist officially, if you ask anyone, or if you write letters to the government they will tell you it doesn’t exist. However if you go out there at several places and see it, fly outside the boundaries and look down and see it, you know it’s there, but according to the government it doesn’t exist.
“The project to fly, test fly these craft, was ongoing until sometime in 1962 when a craft blew up not far from the test sight, in the air, and the explosion was seen over a three-state area. The pilots were killed, they had no idea what had happened or why the craft blew up, but they put Project Redlight on hold until a later date when the aliens supplied us with three craft and personnel to help us learn how to fly these craft. That project is ongoing, and we now have not only alien craft that we are flying, we have craft we have built, using the captured technology, and some of the UFOs that people report seeing in the United States, and maybe even elsewhere, are flown by United States personnel.
“That may come as a shock to you. We have technology way beyond the limits of what we have been told. A lot of our development technologically, since the end of World War II, has been due to the exchange of technology which occurs in the area called ‘Area-51’ on a regular basis … ongoing.
“When James Oberth, Professor Oberth retired, many of you don’t know who he is … not too many space people in here. Professor Oberth was probably one of the greatest rocket scientists and space commentators that ever lived. When he retired, the government gave him a special award, there was a press conference, all kinds of ceremony, and when he got up to speak he said, ‘Gentlemen,’ and I quote Professor Oberth, he said, ‘Gentlemen, we cannot take credit for all the technological developments that we have had in the last decade. We have had help,’ and that’s where he stopped.
“One of the reporters raised his hand and said, ‘Professor Oberth, can you tell us what other country helped us?’
“He said, ‘It was those little guys from out in space,’ and then he got down and would not comment any further. Now this occurred in 1959. I can go on and on, but time doesn’t allow it.
“I will tell you ladies and gentlemen that there are all kinds of things going on all the time, we are making rapid progress in exposing this. Since I have begun talking, people have been coming out of the woodwork at a rapid rate, who know and have pieces of this puzzle, and are helping us to put it together, because I don’t have all the answers. I saw an awful lot of material, I have remembered an awful lot of it, I have probably, in my remembering, made some mistakes, and I guarantee you they’re minor ones, if I have.
“We have just recently, for those of you who didn’t believe that the Jason Society of the Jason Scholars, the secret group, existed, we now have a letter from the Pentagon, with 51 names of the Jason Scholars, an admission from the Pentagon that they hold the highest security clearances in the nation, an admission from the Pentagon that they hold the protocol rank of Rear Admiral, and are treated as such on any military installation or in any government office. There are six Nobel Prize winners on that list, there are the elite of the elite of the scientific world, they are the only ones who really know the truth about the technology today and about the real science of physics, because the one that we’re being taught all the time … If you send your kids to college to learn physics you’re wasting your money be- cause they’re teaching them stuff that doesn’t work, it’s not true, it’s not real. Gravity is not what we think it is. There is a Unified Theory! We already know what it is; it’s what makes these craft work. It’s absolutely incredible what’s going on.
“How many of you keep up with Billy Goodman’s show on KVEG out of Las Vegas? For those of you who don’t, I would try tuning in on any night between 10 p.m. and 1 a.m. It’s 840 on your AM dial, and the subject every night are those subjects that no other media person in the United States will touch with a 10-foot pole, every single night except Saturday night. It’s the only show that you can call in and talk to another caller, you’ve got three minutes to say whatever you want to say as long as you don’t cuss or swear or slander anyone, and every night they’re helping to expose this.
“When John Lear and I first said what was going on out at Groom Lake everybody said, ‘You’re nuts, there’s nothing going on out at Groom Lake!’ The listeners of the Billy Goodman radio show put together an excursion and went up to Groom Lake and they all, ever since, every night, they go up there and watch them test fly the alien craft … every night! The first night they had 100 people there. And 100 people saw four alien craft fly, doing things that no airplane and no helicopter can do. Now they don’t tell us anymore that there’s nothing happening at Groom Lake. What they tell us now is there’s no such thing as aliens, it’s all government secret projects. That’s OK because we’ll prove that wrong too eventually, it just takes a while. Because where we were … it’s not where we’re at, and I’m really happy about that.
“Now, if you want to see what’s happening right now, keep watching your movies, keep watching your television commercials, your alien programs on television, read Whitley Strieber’s Majestic, which is a part of the contingency plan called ‘Majestic’ to test the reaction of the population to the presence of aliens on the Earth. And I have just finished my study of Whitley Strieber’s book Majestic, and I’m going to tell you right now that most of the documents in there, that he says are fiction, are real documents that came right out of Project Grudge. It is part of the government’s campaign to leak information out in ways that they can always deny that it’s real.
There’s only one thing wrong with the information in that book, the stories of the characters in there I know nothing about.
What I’m talking about are the supposed government documents that he has in that book. I’m telling you tonight they’re real.
Those are some of the same documents that I saw in Project Grudge back between 1970 and 1973, and where we have wondered before, now we know that Whitley Strieber is working for the government. And we had a suspicion anyway because in the front of his book he states that he got information and was helped by the research team of Moore, Shanderey, and Friedman. William Moore has publicly admitted on July 1 that he is an agent of the United States Government, and we know that the others are too.
“This is going to come out, and the reason they’re doing it the way they’re doing it is they know eventually you’re going to find out that it’s all true and real. They’re desensitizing you so that you’re not shocked, so that there’s no collapse of society as we know it, so that the religious structure doesn’t fall to pieces, so that the stock market doesn’t go crazy, because these were their original fears. Now, there’s nothing we can do about the last one because it’s already happened, there will be a segment of the population that worships the aliens, even though they’re no different than us; they’re just from somewhere else, and they may look a little different. They are not gods. But there are already people worshiping the aliens and they predicted this would happen when they slapped the secret stamp all over all this stuff.
“You know, there’s really nothing wrong with what’s been happening except for three things. [Cooper forgot to mention the third thing, or was sidetracked, or included it into the second thing.]
“No. 1, when they decided to keep it secret they needed to finance it, they couldn’t tell the public, so they couldn’t tell Congress. They decided to finance it with the sale, importation and sale, of drugs. Now in the documents that I read, in Operation Majority, it specifically stated that when George Bush was the president and CEO of Sapata [sp] Oil, he, in conjunction with the CIA, organized the first large-scale drug importation into this country from South and Central America by fishing boat, to the offshore oil platforms of Sapata Oil, and then from there into the beach, thus bypassing all Customs inspections and law- enforcement inspections of any kind. They are still bringing in drugs, to a limited extent, in this manner. Another manner is by CIA contract aircraft which, one of their bases of landing is Homestead [sp] Air Force Base in Florida. We have affidavits from air controllers who have vectored the planes in, who have made sure that they’re not interfered with in any way. We have affidavits from personnel at Homestead Air Force Base who say the planes have been met by Jeb Bush, who is George Bush’s son. We have affidavits from people who work in the Gulf of Mexico, in the offshore oil business, that yes indeed, the drugs are coming in, at least some of them, from the offshore oil platforms.” From the audience came a clear statement, “Just say no?” “Pardon? Right! Just Say No! Well that’s what we’re going to do ladies and gentlemen with your help. We are going to say no, no more! And you have to do it, you have to act. You either have to act or watch your country go down the tubes. “Now, that’s one of the things that’s wrong. The next thing that’s wrong is, to keep the secret, they killed a lot of people who tried to leak it out. And if I hadn’t done it the way that I did it, you wouldn’t be seeing me anywhere standing or walking on this Earth now. They killed President Kennedy and during the workshop, for those of you haven’t seen the tape, I will show you, on the tape, who shot the president and why. Between ’70 and ’73, in Operation Majority it stated verbatim that President Kennedy ordered MJ-12 to cease the importation and sale of drugs to the American people, that he ordered them to implement a plan to reveal the presence of aliens to the American people within the following year. His assassination was ordered by the policy committee of the Vilderbergers. MJ-12 implemented the plan and carried it out in Dallas. It involved agents of the CIA, Division-5 of the FBI, the Secret Service, and the Office of Naval Intelligence. President Kennedy was killed by the driver of his car, his name was William Greer, he used a recoil-less, electrically operated, gas-powered assassination pistol that was specially built by the CIA to assassinate people at close range. It fired an explosive pellet which injected a large amount of shell- fish poison into the brain, and that is why, in the documents, it stated that President Kennedy’s brain was removed. If you’ve studied the case, you will find that indeed his brain disappeared. The reason for that is so that they would not find the particles of the exploding pellet or the shellfish poison in his brain which would have proved conclusively that Lee Harvey Oswald was not the assassin. In fact, Lee Harvey Oswald never fired a shot, he was the patsy.”
Mr. Cooper paused briefly, and a lady in the audience asked the obvious question, “Why haven’t you been assassinated?” “If they were to kill me right now, what would you think?” Cooper posed.
“That it’s the truth,” several people chimed.
“I’ve got them right where I want them. If they touch me, everyone who has ever heard me talk is going to be absolutely en- raged and is going to know that everything I’ve said is true. As long as they don’t touch me there’s going to be some of you who are always going to be wondering. But eventually we’re going to bring enough proof out, and if you’re here during the workshop you’re going to see an awful lot of it that’s going to prove to you that it’s true. It’s real. And it’s happening!
“Okay, I’ve tried to cover a lot of stuff, just briefly, be- cause there’s no time in 45 minutes to get into anything very much.”
Mr. Cooper then announced the scheduled workshop session the following day in which tangible proofs could be seen but the transcriber was unable to attend. He then opened up the floor to questions and answers.
A muffled question was barely heard coming from the front of the room, which in essence asked, “What about all the people in the press and others who were in Dallas and who saw the assassination? Couldn’t they tell where the shot came from? Why didn’t they come forward? There must have been plenty.”
“There was, we know that there was at least 18 who were all murdered within two years of the event. The odds of that happen- ing are 1 in 300,000 trillion,” Cooper replied.
Again a muffled question, “Why did the driver have to shoot Kennedy?”
“Because the other fools missed! There were a total of three shots fired at President Kennedy, one hit him in the throat and didn’t kill him and two of them hit John Connelly [sp]. The one that was fired from the grassy knoll hit the president in the throat. The other two shots came from directly behind the limousine, not the school book depository building, and hit Governor Connelly. Governor Connelly, in intelligence community circles, is known as a ‘can do’ man, because he took two hits and still kept his mouth shut.”
“How is it that the driver, sitting on the front, left-hand side of the car was able to blow off the right side of Kennedy’s brain when the bullet actually entered in, and it would have been virtually impossible …” another person asked.
Mr. Cooper seized the gist of his question and injected, “For those of you who have been listening to all these talk show hosts, whose job it is to be a talk show host, and who have not done any legitimate research into this, if you come to the work- shop, I will show you, on the tape, how it was done. You will see that Kennedy was, in fact slumped over against Jackie, his head was turned [this direction], it was very simple, it was easy and you will see it with your own eyes.”
Another muffled, off-mike question from a member of the audience inquiring why no one else had come forward with the information Mr. Cooper was disseminating, and why those who knew it had kept it secret for so long was quickly answered, “It hasn’t been, I’m talking about it now. Bill English was talking about it eight years ago, but everybody laughed at Bill English. John Lear’s been talking about it for three years, and everybody laughed at him. Now there’s so many people have been talking about it, people are starting to listen, and it’s about time. Because it’s about time we that we quit being fools, and that’s exactly what they think we are, and we prove it to them every day.”
The next question dealt with the alien technology and asked in essence, “Hasn’t any one else [other than the government] come up with the energy technology that the aliens have?” to which Mr. Cooper answered, “There’s been quite a few people who’ve come up with it and they’ve all been stopped, and they’ll all continue to be stopped. Because once you have it you have free energy. Once you have free energy they no longer have power over you. You understand? That’s why they stop it.”
Another question asking, “In the film of the assassination, which was examined greatly by experts, why didn’t they conclude that Kennedy’s driver shot him?” to which Cooper asked, “Examined by whom greatly? Most of the film that you can purchase has that segment cut out, and you can always tell it by the person running in the background, they’ll run up to here … all of a sudden they’ll be down here … running. You will see in most of the clips that you’ve ever seen on television, or in the movies, or that you’re able to get your hands on, you’ll see William Greer start to turn like this …” then a muffled comment from the audience, then Cooper answered, “That’s because they clipped it out! And on a lot of them, I’ll bet you most of you, every time you’ve seen the clip on television, never looked at the driver anyway. If you’re really honest with yourself, and with me, you know your eyes were right on Kennedy.”
A woman asked if any of the alien technology was being used in present-day military equipment and was answered, “Yes, there’s a lot of alien technology contained in the Stealth bomber, that’s right. The Stealth fighter was flying for 10 years before you even knew it existed.”
As the hour drew late another question, more clearly stated, was asked of Mr. Cooper, “Before you let us all out of here, there’s a bunch of us here wondering what can we all do to help bring this all out?”
A single word, “revolt,” issued from several listeners simultaneously, but Cooper responded, “Don’t revolt. What you need to do is what you should have been doing all along. You need to get involved with your government. The first thing you need to do is purchase a copy of the Constitution, which I know that most of you don’t have anywhere in your house, and if I were to go around this room and ask each person what the Constitution says, most of you couldn’t tell me what the Constitution says from your grocery bill. And that’s the truth! And that is your country! So if you don’t know what your Constitution is you’re dead al- ready, so the first thing you do is you get a copy of your Constitution. The second thing you do is you learn it! The third thing you do is you start calling your senators and your representatives, and the President of the United States and you start leaning on them, and you tell them, ‘Unless you straighten up the government, and unless we start getting the truth, and I mean the whole truth, and no more of this baloney, this is the last job you’re ever going to have, period. And I’ll do everything in my power to make sure that comes true.’ And then write them, frequently, saying the same thing. And then when they’re in your area, in their area offices, take a little delegation and go see them, and make them understand that they’re going to be living in poverty because they’re not going to have a job anymore come election day. You see, the secret government may own the executive branch, but you people, all of us, we own the Congress, and the Congress makes the laws, and the Congress can impeach the entire executive branch! You also have the right to petition the government for a redress of injuries. So you are powerful, you’ve just forgotten that you’re powerful, you’ve forgotten that that vote that you haven’t been doing every time election comes around, that vote has abdicated your power. That vote you did not cast abdicated your power and gave it to those who are subverting the Constitution and are ruining this country.”
A gentleman then asked, “What was traded to the aliens for their technology?”
“People and animals,” replied Cooper succinctly.
Another man asked, “Is the Soviet Union in on any of this?” “The Soviet Union and the United States of America have been close allies since the end of World War II and have been closely participating in the secret space program all this time. The Soviets have the same thing we have, yes. What you see happening in the Soviet block right now is not the result of people stand- ing up and saying, ‘We want to be free.’ It’s the result of the international bankers saying, ‘You tear down these barriers, and you meet the West half way, give your people some freedom, the West is going to take some freedom away from their people so that we can put together a one-world economic system … and have all the power. That’s what’s happening! If you don’t believe it, stick around and watch it!”
A dubious woman then asked, “Why was the shellfish poison necessary? A lot of his brain was blown off anyway.”
Cooper: “The shellfish poison? If you go to kill someone, one thing I’ve learned, I learned it real good, I learned it especially good when I went to Vietnam; just because you shoot someone doesn’t mean they’re going to die. And if they don’t die, they’re going to be mad. And if they’ve got a gun, you’re dead. So you want the first time to be the last time. So if you really want to kill somebody you don’t play around. If you re- ally want to kill somebody … you kill them, you don’t play, you make sure that when you shoot them, they’re dead. That way they can’t hurt you, can’t hurt you at all.”
Regrettably, the next question was totally unintelligible, but thankfully Mr. Cooper had a good public address system to amplify his reply, “The first moon landing was May 22, 1962 … or excuse me, that was the first landing on Mars. I’m sorry, May 22, 1962, was the winged probe that used a hydrazine propeller, flew around approximately three orbits and landed on May 22, 1962, was a joint United States/Russian endeavor. The first time that we landed on the moon was sometime during the … probably middle 50s, because at the time when President Kennedy stated that he wanted a man to set foot on the moon by the end of the decade we already had a base there.”
“What about Mars?” came another quick question.
“We have a base on Mars also,” Cooper calmly replied.
“When did that happen?”
“I don’t know the exact date but I know the project’s name, it was ‘Adam and Eve.'”
“How long have you known about this?”
“Well, I revealed it publicly for the first time on July 2, 1989, and within three weeks of the time I revealed it publicly, the government, to get the American people not to listen to me, came out and said that they planned to build a base on the moon and a colony on Mars. Now, three days previous to my speech, representatives from NASA said, ‘We can never have a colony on Mars, it’s impossible that there’s a colony on Mars because Mars is a dead planet.’ And it’s not a dead planet, they’ve lied to you about Mars.”
“My name is Dave [unintelligible], I’m a representative of the Crystic Institute, and I’d like to know why it was that when we sent a representative down to your home, at your request, you failed to produce any documentation to substantiate your allegations.”
“In the first place it was not at my request, I have never contacted the Crystic Institute in my life. I was on the Carol Hemingway Show, she contacted the Crystic institute, she told Daniel Shehan [sp] that I had just said something about Bush and drugs on her show. He called me and told me he wanted to send an investigator, in fact he told me to even help the investigator because he was new at the job, his name was Wayne Nelson, he is a very good gentleman, he stayed at my house for two days, slept overnight on my couch, I gave him everything I had. I never told Daniel Shehan that I had any documents and I never told Wayne Nelson that I had any documents. In fact what I told Wayne Nelson, and I quote, ‘Wayne, if I did have the documents I couldn’t admit it and I don’t know you from Adam, and I don’t know Daniel Shehan from Adam and what makes you think I would give them to you.’ Who am I going to give them to and how quick are they going to disappear, that was my thought. Wayne Nelson also came to my house with a stack of documents this thick already substantiating the presence of aliens and extraterrestrial craft on this planet, and they are keeping it a secret, because they’re afraid somebody’ll laugh at them and they’ll loose their credibility.
“We need some patriots in this country, not people trying to make a name for themselves, trying to expose some drug runners, because those are just the bag-men. The real crook is in the White House! And you can tell that to Daniel Shehan!” “Why didn’t Jackie Kennedy report [the source of the lethal shot]?” asked another audience member.
“Who’s she going to tell? The Secret Service just killed her husband, and they’re assigned to protect the president. Also, who had her children? The same Secret Service had her children at the time.”
“Wasn’t the craft at Roswell, New Mexico, destroyed and all the aliens killed?” another young man asked.
“All the aliens were dead but the craft was not completely destroyed, it was severely damaged yes.”
On an unrelated note an older gentleman asked, “Does that mean that Alternative-3 is true?”
“Alternative-3 is absolutely true and so is Alternative-2.”
Then a man in his late 20s or early 30s raised his hand, said something unintelligible, and was apparently recognized by Mr. Cooper, who asked him to take the podium and address the audience.
“What I said was that I thanked him [Cooper] very much for coming forward and saying something. A lot of my friends out here know that I was involved in the United States Special Forces, UFO Tracking and Research from the years 1971 to 1975. My name is Richard Murray, I was based out of the 71st Tac Control Flight, McDill Air Force Base, Tampa, Florida. We were ‘Mobile Radar Command,’ that was combat and war ready. We could be loaded on aircraft within an hour and many times were taken into areas [to] set up radar. A lot of times we were set up around Egland [sp] Air Force Base because that’s where they have the ‘Altered Temperature Weather Control,’ where they can test various aircraft for their shrinkage and their dimension change during altered temperature. So, you know, I was told to shut up twice in 1982 and they finally threatened my parents life so I stayed quiet, and, that’s when Wendel Stevens was taken off the streets … Just like that! And I hid for quite awhile, and decided to come back out when I heard that you’re [Cooper] of such high rank as you were, and I felt just in saying that your credentials are true, and that what you have to say, everything you’ve said here today, I’ve heard before behind closed doors. And you’ve really tied the link for me to the Kennedy killing. And there’s a few more links that have to go on with the Columbia Cartel and the money laundering. I think there’s more than one cartel involved, and they’re shutting one of them down so one can maintain a power, it just seems to be the way it works.” A muffled question then came from someone in the audience regarding the person referred to as “Colonel Stevens.”
“Uh, Colonel Stevens is out of jail now,” replied Murray who was quickly asked another question I couldn’t hear to which he answered, “I sure hope to hell so, he is a wonderful man, and I give him my utmost respect, and it was one of the saddest days in my life to see what happened to him happen to him. But I don’t care what they say about Wendel Stevens, in my heart you can’t discredit that man to me. I don’t care who the hell you are. I won’t listen to it, I don’t give a shit if he was screwing babies. You know … that doesn’t … he’s not that kind of a man, I don’t care what you say, I know him personally.”
The lecture was then essentially over. The “Alternative-2 and Alternative-3” that were referred to briefly are (just guessing now) two government contingency plans to 1. Declare Martial Law and invalidate the Constitution on the premise that a terrorist group had entered the country with a Nuclear weapon with plans to detonate it in a major city. All dissidents would be rounded up and placed in concentration camps and the press and media would be nationalized. All this if the information becomes public before they want it to or if the aliens attempt a takeover, and 2. Another contingency plan to contain or delay the release of this information, the details of which I am probably wrong about anyway.
Mr. Cooper is a man who appears to be in his late 40s, of medium height and weight, and was dressed casually during the lecture. His hairline was receding slightly, and he carried himself with confidence and purpose. Bill Cooper, as he was called by several in attendance, is not a professional speaker. His presentation lacked the polish of repeated deliveries which all the other lectures had during the Expo, but what it lacked in fine tuning was easily made up for in its content.

INCLUSION IN ANY OTHER MEDIA REQUIRES MY EXPRESS WRITTEN PERMISSION.
This file contains the absolute true information regarding the alien presence on Earth and the U.S. Government’s involvement with the aliens.
This file contains only the information as I saw it and only my information.
It does not contain any information from any other source. It was necessary for me to issue the information previous to this release in a manner which would deceive the government until someone was able to independently confirm my identity, my employment, my service record, my intelligence background, the identity of the person to which I gave the information in 1972, his acknowledgment of the information and when it was given to him, that the information is correct, that I have not seen him since 1974, and that I have not communicated with him in any form since 1976.
This was necessary because this file is my death warrant if MJ-12 continues to operate in a manner consistent with its history.
All in the last paragraph has been independently verified by two different people who have no connection with each other. I will only list one for obvious reasons.

I wish to make it absolutely clear that I do not consider myself a hero.
I believe that most of you would do the same thing if you knew the truth.
I gave an oath that I would uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States of America and I take that oath very seriously.

I swear that I saw this information in 1972 in the performance of my duties as a member of the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander In Chief of the Pacific Fleet as a Petty Officer in the U.S. Navy.
I swear that I underwent hypnotic regression in order to make the information as accurate as possible.

I will not, however submit to any test or hypnosis by anyone who is now or has ever been connected with the government in any capacity for obvious reasons.
The following is brief listing of everything that I personally saw and know from 1972 and does not contain any input from any other source whatsoever.
MAJESTY was listed as the code word for the President of the United States for communications concerning this information. OPERATION MAJORITY is the name of the operation responsible for every aspect, project, and consequence of alien presence on Earth.
GRUDGE contains 16 volumes of documented information collected from the beginning of the United States investigation of Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and Identified Alien Crafts (IACs).
The project was financed by CIA confidential funds (nonappropriated) and money from the illicit drug trade. Participation in the illegal drug trade was justified in that it would identify and eliminate the weak elements of our society. The purpose of Project Grudge was to collect all scientific, techno- logical, medical and intelligence information from UFO/IAC sightings and contacts with alien life forms.
This orderly file of collected information has been used to advance the United States Space Program.
MJ-12 is the name of the secret control group.
President Eisenhower commissioned a secret society known as THE JASON SOCIETY (JASON SCHOLARS) to sift through all the facts, evidence, technology, lies and deception and find the truth of the alien question.
The society was made up of 32 of the most prominent men in the country in 1972 and the top 12 members were designated MJ-12. MJ-12 has total control over everything. They are designated by the codes J-1, J-2, etc., all the way through the members of the Jason Society.
The director of the CIA was appointed J-1 and is the Director of MJ-12.
MJ-12 is responsible only to the President.
MJ-12 runs most of the world’s illegal drug trade.
This was done to hide funding and thus keep the secret from the Congress and the people of the United States.
It was justified in that it would identify and eliminate the weak elements of our society.
The cost of funding the alien connected projects is higher than anything you can imagine.
MJ-12 assassinated President Kennedy when he informed them that he was going to tell the public all the facts of the alien presence.
He was killed by the Secret Service agent driving his car, and it is plainly visible in the film held from public view.
A secret meeting place was constructed for MJ-12 in MARYLAND and it was described as only accessible by air.
It contains full living, recreational, and other facilities for MJ-12 and the JASON SOCIETY.
It is code named “THE COUNTRY CLUB.” Only those with TOP SECRET/MAJIC clearance are allowed to go there.
MAJI is the MAJORITY AGENCY FOR JOINT INTELLIGENCE. All information, disinformation, and intelligence is gathered and evaluated by this agency.
This agency is responsible for all disinformation and operates in conjunction with the CIA, NSA, and the Defense Intelligence Agency.
This is a very powerful organization, and all alien projects are under its control.
MAJI is responsible only to MJ-12.
SIGMA is the project which first established communications with the aliens and is still responsible for communications. PLATO is the project responsible for diplomatic relations with the aliens.
This project secured a formal treaty (illegal under the Constitution) with the aliens.
The terms were that the aliens would give us technology. In return, we agreed to keep their presence on earth a secret, not to interfere in any way with their actions, and to allow them to abduct humans and animals.
The aliens agreed to furnish MJ-12 with a list of abductees on a periodic basis.
MAJIC is the security classification and clearance of all alien connected material, projects, and information.
MAJIC means MAJI Controlled.
AQUARIUS is a project which compiled the history of alien presence and their interaction with Homo Sapiens upon this planet for the last 25,000 years and culminating with the Basque people who live in the mountainous country on the border of France and Spain and the Syrians.
GARNET is the project responsible for control of all information and documents regarding this subject and accountability of the information and documents.
PLUTO is a project to evaluate all UFO/IAC information pertaining to space tel [TRANSMISSION GARBLED]
POUNCE is the project formed to recover all downed/crashed craft and aliens.
REDLIGHT is the project to test fly recovered alien craft.
It is conducted at AREA 51 (DREAMLAND) in Nevada.
It was aided when the aliens gave us craft and helped us fly them.
The initial project was somewhat successful in that we flew a recovered craft, but it blew up in the air, and the pilots were killed.
The project was suspended at that time until the aliens agreed to help us.
SNOWBIRD was established as a cover for project REDLIGHT. Several flying saucer type craft were built using conventional technology.
They were unveiled to the press and flown in front of the press.
The purpose was to explain accidental sightings or disclosure of REDLIGHT as having been the SNOWBIRD craft.
LUNA is the alien base on the far side of the Moon.
It was seen and filmed by the Apollo astronauts.
A base, a mining operation using very large machines, and the very large alien craft described in sighting reports as MOTHER SHIPS exist there.
NRO is the National Recon Organization based at Fort Carson, Colorado.
It is responsible for security for all alien or alien craft connected projects.
DELTA is the designation for the specific arm of the NRO, which is especially trained and tasked with security of these projects.
JOSHUA is a project to develop a low frequency pulsed sound generating weapon.
It was said that this weapon would be effective against the alien craft and beam weapons.
EXCALIBUR is a weapon to destroy the alien underground bases. It is to be a missile capable of penetrating 1000 meters of Tuff/hard packed soil such as that found in New Mexico with no operational damage.
Missile apogee not to exceed 30,000 feet AGL and impact must not deviate in excess of 50 meters from designated target.
The device will carry a one-megaton nuclear warhead.
ALIENS: There were four types of aliens mentioned in the papers. A LARGE NOSED GREY with whom we have the treaty, the GREY reported in abductee cases that works for the LARGE NOSED GREY, a blond human like type described as the NORDIC, a red haired human like type called the ORANGE.
The home of the aliens were described as being a star in the Constellation of Orion, Barnards star, and Zeta Riticuli 1&2.
I cannot remember even under hypnosis which alien belongs to which star.
EBE is the name or designation given to the live alien captured at the 1949 Roswell crash.
He died in captivity.
KRLL OR KRLLL OR CRLL OR CRLLL pronounced Crill or Krill was the hostage left with us at the first Holloman landing as a pledge that the aliens would carry out their part of the basic agreement reached during that meeting.
KRLL gave us the foundation of the yellow book which was completed by the guests at a later date.
KRLL became sick and was nursed by Dr. G. Mendoza who became the expert on alien biology and medicine. KRLL later died. His information was disseminated under the pseudonym O.H. Cril or Crill.
GUESTS were aliens exchanged for humans who gave us the balance of the yellow book.
At the time I saw the information there were only three left alive.
They were called (P&#’s) Alien Life Forms.
The aliens claim to have created Homo Sapiens through hybridization.
The papers said that RH-blood was proof of this.
They further claimed to have created all four major religions.
They showed a hologram of the crucifixion of Christ which the government filmed.
They claim that Jesus was created by them.
ALIEN BASES exist in the four corners area of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, and Nevada.
Six bases were described in the 1972 papers, all on Indian reservations and all in the four corners area. The base near Dulce was one of them.
The documents stated that many military and government personnel had been terminated (murdered without due process of law) when they had attempted to reveal the secret.
The documents stated that many craft had been recovered. The early ones from Roswell, Aztec, Roswell again, Texas, Mexico, and other places.
GENERAL DOOLITTLE made a prediction that one day we would have to reckon with the aliens, and the document stated that it appeared that General Doolittle was correct.
ABDUCTIONS were occurring long before 1972.
The document stated that humans and animals were being abducted and or mutilated.
Many vanished without a trace.
They were taking sperm and ova samples, tissue, performed surgical operations, implanted a spherical device 40 to 80 microns in size near the optic nerve in the brain and all attempts to remove it resulted in the death of the patient.
The document estimated that one in every 40 people had been implanted.
This implant was said to give the aliens total control of that human.
CONTINGENCY PLAN SHOULD THE INFORMATION BECOME PUBLIC OR SHOULD THE ALIENS ATTEMPT A TAKEOVER.
This plan called for a public announcement that a terrorist group had entered the United States with an atomic weapon. It would be announced that the terrorists planned to detonate the weapon in a major city.
Martial law would be declared and all persons with implants would be rounded up along with all dissidents and would be placed into concentration camps.
The press, radio, and TV would be nationalized and controlled. Anyone attempting to resist would be arrested or killed.
CONTINGENCY PLAN TO CONTAIN OR DELAY RELEASE OF INFORMATION
This plan called for the use of MAJESTIC TWELVE as a disinformation ploy to delay and confuse the release of information should anyone get close to the truth.
It was selected because of the similarity of spelling and the similarity to MJ-12.
It was designed to confuse memory and to result in a fruitless search for material that does not exist.
SOURCE OF MATERIAL CONTAINED IN THE DOCUMENTS WHICH I SAW
The source of the material was an Office of Naval Intelligence counter-intelligence operation against MJ-12 in order for the Navy to find out the truth of what was really going on.
The Navy (at that time or at least the Navy that I worked for) were not participants in any of this.
The different services and the government conduct this type of operation against each other all the time.
The result of this operation was that the Navy cut themselves in for a piece of the action (technology) and control of some projects.
As you can see this file is only a little different from my previous file.
Only some names were scrambled previously to confuse the government long enough for someone to verify that what I have said is the truth.
I have added information in this file that puts me in absolute danger.
I have sent a copy of this file to people all over the country and will continue to do so.
Please get this file into as many hands as you can and maybe that will protect me but I doubt it.
HISTORY WILL BE THE JUDGE OF ME AND THIS INFORMATION, AND I HAVE NO FEAR OF THAT JUDGMENT.
I SWEAR THAT THIS INFORMATION IS TRUE AND CORRECT TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.
I wish to thank all those people who have aided me in reaching this point and for their patience and understanding.
I owe you all more than I can ever repay.
Finally, it does not matter who is right and who is wrong or if a project name is in the wrong place.
It does not matter who is working for whom or what is really what.
It should be obvious by now that something sinister and terribly wrong is going on involving the government and the UFO phenomenon.
We must all band together and expose it now.
I have done my part in the best manner that I could.
I can add nothing else except my testimony in Congress or a court of law that what I saw and have written in this file is true and that I saw it.
Everything in my previous file that does not conflict with this file is true and correct to the best of my knowledge and some of it is from sources and research.
You may combine the files to get the entire picture.
Throw out only that information that conflicts with that contained in this file.
There will be no further additions or corrections to this information either now or in the future.
My file is complete and stands to be judged by history. Sometime in the future the exact papers that I saw will surface, and you will all see this exact information contained within them.

Appendix C: Musings
There is some thought that the U.S. Air Force, in conjunction with the Canadians, has standing orders to deny any UFO sightings to the public.
Timothy Good, in his book Above Top Secret, states:
“Cooperation between the United States and Canada in the report- ing of UFOs was laid down, for example, in the Canadian-United States Communications Instructions for Reporting Vital Intelligence Sightings (CIRVIS) JANAP 146 (E), issued in March 1966 by the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as the Canadian Defense Staff. This publication lists instructions for the reporting of ‘information of vital importance to the security of the United States of America and Canada and their forces, which in the opinion of the observer, requires very urgent defensive and/or investigative action by the U.S. and/or Canadian armed forces.’ Sightings within the scope of JANAP 146 include ‘Unidentified Flying Objects’ as distinct from ‘Hostile of unidentified single air- craft or formations of aircraft,’ and there are lengthy and elaborate instructions for reporting UFOs” (Good, 192).
And later he states: “Because of reports like these [UFOs], airline pilots became subject to military restrictions contained in a Joint Army-Navy-Air Force Publication (JANAP), drawn up by the Joint Communications-Electronics Committee, and promulgated by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and could thus find themselves li- able to a prison term of up to 10 years and/or a fine of $10,000 if they discussed their sightings with the media or public” (Good, 283).

Stan Barrington offers a document about “Operation Majority, which concerns the dealings of MJ-12. The following discussion, taken from the alt.conspiracy section of Usenet, focuses on the validity of those documents:
“What is the latest status of the MJ-12 documents (concerning authenticity)? I know that Klass did his usual debunking job, but also read that Friedman produced all the sup- porting evidence Klass had demanded (similar typefaces in use on other documents of the same era, etc.). Has the U.S. Government taken a formal position on the MJ-12 documents? What evidence, pro and con, has been produced on the authenticity issue since their release. What are the details of the release? Any and all information will be appreciated. Thanks.”
The reply was: “I don’t know about the U.S. Government’s position, but Klass has done a pretty good job of showing that there is at least some fraud in the papers. In particular, he has shown that the supposed signature of Harry Truman on one of the critical papers is identical to the signature on another document in the National Archives, except that it’s (if I recall correctly) 3.6 percent larger. It is impossible for two signatures to be identical unless one is a photographic copy of the other, and interestingly, most copying machines do a very small expansion of what they copy to prevent edge effects–a blow-up of exactly 1.2 percent. So it would appear this supposed signature is actually a third-generation photocopy of Truman’s signature. Handwriting experts have confirmed this. I believe it’s written up in the current (Spring 1990) Skeptical Inquirer, but I can’t find my copy at the moment so I can’t say for sure.” I don’t know who Klass or Friedman are, (although Friedman may be the same person that was mentioned as a helper in Majestic by Whitley Strieber, and also mentioned as a government official in the speech) but the Skeptical Inquirer is a respected paranormal debunking newspaper put out by James “the Amazing” Randi. It also seems to me that the idea that Truman’s signature is a photocopy of another one in the National Archives is a bit odd. There must be thousands of Truman signature in the Archives, and thinking that someone could find the one that exactly matched a 3.6 percent enlargement is laughable (but then again, those same people find the idea of a huge UFO cover-up laughable).

Whitley Strieber is a strange character in this whole af- fair. He is the writer of Wolfen and The Howling, two horror novels. Lately, he turned to writing about UFOs.
His first book on the subject, Communion, deals with his personal experiences with abduction by an unknown intelligence (Strieber always tries to avoid the word “alien,” so he can leave the options open that these are humans that are traveling through time or even an unknown earthly intelligence). His second book, Transformation, is not as familiar to me, but I have heard that it is more of the same as Communion, except that it is less well- supported and deals with a sort of religion of the unknown. Strieber contends in that book that the “others” (as he calls them) gave him a sketchy design for an anti-gravity motor that relies on rotating magnets.
His third book is Majestic. Milton William Cooper mentions it in his speech. This book follows the Cooper speech closely in many regards; in fact, sometimes it seems like one is stealing from the other because they are so close. Strieber writes this book as fiction, but at the end there is a section in which he says that the book is based on truth and that the government is hiding information from the public. He insists that this truth must be brought out. However, Cooper says that Strieber is working for the government. He offers some proof to this claim, but he doesn’t really say why the government would hire Strieber to write Majestic, or whether he was hired before he wrote Communion and Transformation. All Cooper says is that Strieber is testing the waters, leaking the information in a way that the government could deny.
I think that if Strieber works for the government, then it is mostly likely because the government thinks that people will not believe anything he writes about UFOs, given his history of writing horror. Thus, the government has Strieber write some- thing that is based on truth, and everyone thinks it is coming from such a bad source that it must be false.
* * *
This from Keith Rowell in Oregon:
“You folks interested in Strieber’s claims should check out the book Report on Communion (Morrow, 1989) by Ed Conroy. “Conroy is a San Antonio-based freelance reporter who wrote some early articles for the local newspaper and then continued to explore and investigate till he ended up with a book. He basically concludes that Strieber’s claims are true as far as we now understand the UFO phenomenon, which is very far from adequate at this time. (The scholarly and scientific establishment has yet to honestly and openly embrace the problem of the UFO. Conroy’s book is opening the way for the investigative media people, though. Things are changing as the UFO issue just refuses to go away.) You will all hear more and more about the reality status of UFOs as we go through the 1990s. Intelligence establishment secrecy is being slowly broken down and the scientific/scholarly community is slowly putting up less resistance as the years go by.
“My opinions are based on 15 years of reading the UFO literature and four years or so of more or less active participation in the UFO community. It is very hard to understand what is going on in the UFO community without paying very close attention to it. The normal sources of news and information cover this group of people in a very inconsistent and sometimes downright biased way. You’re just going to have to get your feet wet on this one; otherwise, you’ll just being talking through your hat. “I’ll be happy to send via electronic mail my representative UFO bibliography to anyone who wants it. Lately, new (and significant) UFO books are added practically monthly in the past few years. UFOs are hot again. We seem to be in a peak of activity again.
“The latest significant book is by Ed Walters on his Gulf- breeze UFO/photograph experiences, being distributed to your local bookstores as I write this.”
