I sent this letter to the U.S. Air Force on July 11, 2013 to solicit an official response to allegations by ex-special agent Richard Doty of the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) that he participated in spreading UFO disinformation. Among his claims, he says he broke into a civilian’s home, created hoaxed documents, and lied to two U.S. Senators. Some of these are criminal acts that he claims he committed on orders from his superiors in the AFOSI. Whether or not this is true, these acts were committed while he was an AFOSI special agent, and I believe the U.S. Air Force needs to respond.
Open Minds Special Report – The origins of the Majestic 12 documents has its roots in a complicated set of events that included disinformation, hoaxes, and lies. For this reason, most of this history has been lost or is glossed over. However, the true origins of the documents and how UFO researchers came to know the term Majestic 12 is important when assessing their legitimacy. We have taken months to investigate this story, which has included working with the public relations department of the U.S. Air Force Office of Special Investigations. While our investigation is ongoing, in this video we share with you what we have found thus far.
Apparently, in June of 1977 Area 51 had a problem with mysterious cattle deaths. The EPA was notified and investigated, but were unable to figure out why these six cows died.
The documents were found by UFO researcher Shepherd Johnson via the digital archives of Congressional ProQuest. The document was difficult to read so I transcribed the document below.
If you examine recent history, even without particular attention, you should notice pretty soon that in the last fifty years there has been a technological breakthrough that has led to impressive inventions that were absolutely unimaginable just a few years earlier. In many cases, moreover, we haven’t witnessed a step by step evolution due to a series of progressive achievements but, on the contrary, a lot of discoveries seemingly have come out of nowhere. Thinking about these inventions as something 100% terrestrial would be totally legitimate, if only the former head of the Foreign Technology Division at the Pentagon, U.S. Army Colonel Philip J. Corso, had not related a completely different story that not only showed in a plausible way how it was possible to make these outstanding discoveries, but also fitted perfectly the overall framework of the Roswell affair.
Open Minds UFO Radio: There have been a lot of UFO pictures and videos popping up in the news all around the world lately. In order to take a closer look at these UFO sightings, Jason and I invited Lee Speigel from the Huffington Post to join us and go over these cases. Some of them we suspect are misidentifications. However, some of them we have no explanation for. To see the stories we are talking about, visit: www.openminds.tv.
