Spies, Lies, And Polygraph Tape: CIA's Disturbing
Extraterrestrial Affair
Gary S. Bekkum

"I remain a skeptical agnostic. More skeptical as time
advances, but careful to note that even if paranormal phenomena
are entirely bogus, some individuals are surely able to instill
the belief in unexplained capabilities. How they do this and
what are the vulnerabilities to such enticements is worth
knowing." -- Ken Kress, CIA officer assigned to the Stanford
Research Institute psychic spy research project in the early

The real-life tall-tale of espionage you are about to read spins
around a confrontation between a former CIA official and
officers of the United States Air Force.

Twenty years later, the game continues where disturbing worlds

At the heart of the matter, a U.S. Government UFO Working Group,
dark secrets kept in the shadows under the guise of counter-
intelligence operations of the United States Air Force, and
decades-old rumors of extraterrestrial contact with "something
not of this world."

The official concern hidden within these "Real Life X-Files"
appears to have been aimed at the dangers of a viral marketing
scheme intended to elicit real classified information from past
and present intelligence officers.

At the center of the latest controversy is an obscure book by
former USAF intelligence officer Robert M. Collins.

Exempt From Disclosure revisits tales of conspiracy and
intrigue that have been the mainstay of legends whispered within
the USAF since at least the early 1980s, when I was first told
by "Sarge" about Air Force involvement in an extraterrestrial

Open-source materials published on line document the involvement
of former senior intelligence persons in the search for the U.S.
Government's role in alleged alien contact. One source, who
remains active in government business, including a role as a CIA
consultant and involvement with the Department of Homeland
Security, confirmed knowledge of high-level rumors of
extraterrestrial contact.

According to Exempt from Disclosure, beginning in 1986,
researcher Bill Moore and Jaime Shandera, a TV producer,
initiated meetings with interested parties including Ernie
Kellerstrass of General Dynamics, Wright Patterson Air Force
Base, Rick Doty, a former USAF counter-intelligence officer who
had been assigned to cold-war Eastern Europe, Dr. Hal Puthoff, a
physicist with several government contracts on his resume, and
the author, Captain Robert Collins.

The group was later joined by Dr. Christopher 'Kit' Green, who
had retired from a very senior position with CIA a few years

Bird names were assigned to conceal the identities of the
various participants. The names stuck, and thus was born the

As the group continued to meet, strategies were discussed to
propel a movement leading to government disclosure of the
strangeness allegedly centered on bodies of dead aliens and
recovered artifacts from alien spacecraft.

Collins writes, "Kit Green took center stage by proposing
several lines of attack involving disclosure strategies."

Verbal shots were soon exchanged between a ranking Air Force
Officer and a member of the AVIARY within the hallowed walls of
secrecy in an office at CIA.

Twenty years later, the birds of a feather may no longer flock
together, but the squawking never ceased, fueled by the emerging
communication role of the Internet.

Some of the most revealing chatter allegedly took place over
government channels, involving a different kind of disclosure

Last year, email messages were deliberately passed by a sitting
Senior Intelligence Official (SIO) via his close contact in the
civilian world, in full knowledge they would be handed to a
foreign national of a friendly nation. Curiously the SIO
previously suggested this same person might be an agent for the
British Secret Intelligence Service, better known as the home of
James Bond, or MI-6.

Rich with details, the information contained in the numerous
messages includes a first-hand account of an AVIAN confrontation
at CIA with officers from the USAF.

The dispute with the USAF officials, over their interpretation
of a polygraph interview of one of their own counter-
intelligence officers, was so heated that one USAF Official
asked that the AVIARY member's security clearances "be revoked."

Apparently the USAF position interpreted the polygraph to
indicate that their agent was lying.

Examination by the AVIARY expert had shown otherwise: there was
no indication of confabulation on the part of the USAF agent.
From the point of view of the AVIARY expert, the USAF officials
appeared to be lying.

Curiously, the polygraph had nothing to do with UFOs, aliens, or
any of the other weirdness that intrigued AVIARY members.

The incident was resurrected within the leaked messages,
supported by a leaked audio recording of the Senior Intelligence
Official about the existence of a government "UFO Working
Group," and new intrigue suggestive of elicitation of
intelligence using an Internet "viral marketing scheme"
transmitted in the guise of UFO investigations. The worst case
scenario under discussion included an assault by foreign
intelligence agents against America's most sensitive
institutions: a possible "false flag" operation conducted under
the alias of phony DIA officials.

Messages deliberately leaked by the SIO include discussion of a
search through DIA electronic databases for two names given to
an AVIARY member. A search of DIA records failed to find the two
individuals in question, but apparently elicited a strong
reaction from one official at DIA, who reported that "nothing
like that had ever happened to him after such a routine request
in his over thirty years at DIA."

Ultimately it was concluded that "complete review of all
databases indicates that there are no DIA employees with those

The motive behind the SIO release of the messages remains a
mystery, although I note for the record we were asked not to
reveal details as "methods are more important than sources."

The messages also confirmed a discussion with the FBI, as well
as cooperation by two of the AVIAN birds with Internal Affairs
and the Justice Department.

Lost among all of the latest spy games is the 'Core Story' of
extraterrestrial contact.

A recent public posting by one AVIAN, who currently has clients
including the Department of Defense, the CIA, the DIA, the
National Academy of Sciences, among others, clarifies some of
the mystery:

"We all agree that there is a Core Story. I was the one that
originally reported on the 1986 Denny's [meeting]... We agree on
small, tiny, overlapping Core Elements for which we have
sufficient data to believe... It happened. Once or twice. No
abductions. Ever... It isn't anyone's business who told me, or
the millions of hours of work that leads to this fragile,
subjective, and personal and unsupportable conclusion based on
inductive (not deductive) logic ... I know zero, anymore, that
is (any longer) classified. I believe a Reverse Engineering
program has been going on for decades. It has been singularly
unsuccessful. It was moved to the private sector in the '70s and
the '80s. Uncle [Sam] is quite clueless. Some guys in the I.C.
[Intelligence Community] are playing bad games, mostly because
they are clueless, know they are, and want to figure out how to
find, and get, inside."
