(The following written from memory without taking the time to
look up notes)

I investigated Cooper for a short (that was all I needed!) time
in early 1988 after he had posted stuff on the Internet and was
becoming known in UFO circles. I talked to him on the phone and
got his basic story of being in the Navy and (somehow) having
been selected to be on the briefing team for CINCPAC (Commander
In Chief of the Pacific Fleet). Yeah, right! was my response.

But let m back up. Cooper claimed a UFO sighting while on a
submarine (surfaced!) on a trip from Honolulu to San Francisco.
He gave the name of the submarine, but he could recall only one
person on it, a guy by the name of Ball, who was another on-deck
witness, as I recall. Strange that he couldn't recall the
commanding officer. Anyway, I looked up the submarine and, sure
enough, there it was, on a trip between Honolulu and San
Franscisco at the time Cooper said. There was not a complete
list of the crew, but one of the officers was a guy named Ball!
So it checked out partly.

Anyway, some time (year?) after that trip was when Cooper was on
this supposed briefing team for CINCPAC and one day was asked to
brief the Chief on material found in a big report on UFOs. He
prepared his briefing and copied the report which, of course,
was Top Secret. He told his roommate or a friend (to whom I also
talked; can't recall his name now). Cooper kept his copy at his
house. Subsequently his house burned down and the report burned
with it. Nevertheless, roughly 10 years later Cooper was able to
publish on the Internet the exact wording of many sections of
that report. I asked him how he was able to do this. He said
that he had memorized the report before it had burned and that
periodically he would write out the report word for word. By
that means he had succeeded in remembering it perfectly.

Now a little history: in the spring of 1987 the MJ-12 documents
were dumped on an unsuspecting public by Timothy Goode in
England and then Bill Moore and Jaime Shandara in the United
States. There was the Eisenhower Briefing Document and the
Aquarius document and several others as I recall. These
circulated around the UO community as people wondered whether or
not they were real and various people (myself included) tried to
check up on them.

Now back to Cooper.

He had posted on the Internet a collection of documents which
were.... get this... identical, word for word with what Moore
had been circulating. And then, to top it off, Cooper had the
guts/stupidity to claim vociferously that Moore's documents were
fake while his were real.

Yeah, Iwas stunned. Here I was reading Cooper's version of the
document I just got off the Internet and it is word for word what
Moore had circulated 8 months before, and I'm listening to
Cooper swear that Moore's documents were fake!

Well, as you can imagine, I have merely watched Cooper's
activities from afar, with some amusement and some dismay.

Oh, yes, I might point out the 'Behold A Pale Horse' (which
should be titled 'Behind A Pale Horse' or some such) is Cooper's
"Mein Kampf". And I'm in there, along with most other
ufologists, as a nasty government agent out to screw Cooper and
freedom loving people all over the world. Cooper's motto...

'If you aren't for me, you're against me, and if you don't agree
100% with everything I say, you aren't for me. And since ya
don't 'gree witfrom what I c'n see, ya ain't fur me!'
