J.M.P. / letter to President Ronald Reagan
>> The following document has apparently been making the rounds since
last fall. Supposedly it has been mailed to over 6000 researchers, however
that is highly dubious, as I don't believe there are actually that many
UFO researchers in the world; certainly, no mailing list that large ex-
ists. Very few people I know have received one, and I got mine from John
Lear. There is no confirmation that the President or any members of
Congress have received a copy, either. MUFON was unaware of the letter un-
til Walt Andrus got a copy, and is more than a little miffed that replies
were referred to the MUFON Journal by the letter's author(s). So far,
there has been no identification of the author(s); no one has ever heard
of Justice for Military Personnel (JMP), and no members have stepped
forward to claim credit. It is, however, an intensely interesting docu-
ment, for reasons we will discuss in a later upload.

J.M.P. / letter to President Ronald Reagan
Reprinted copies to members of Congress and the press. 4 Dec 1987
President of the United States
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500
4 Sep. 1987
Dear Mr. President:
The CIA has made a mockery out of our constitution. Our elected re-
presentatives have no idea what we in the Military have done and are still
doing, since the CIA decided that "they do not have a need to know," mak-
ing it mandatory for all of us in the Military and Government, both active
and retired, who have knowledge regarding UFOs, to testify with total im-
munity before a special congressional committee. The CIA can not object,
because officially "UFOs do not exist."
The UFO cover-up is not in our national security interest. It should
be stopped, because it hurts military morale. Our group, Justice for Mili-
tary Personnel (JMP), consists of retired military personnel who were af-
fected by, or involved in different capacities with the UFO cover-up. Un-
der orders of the CIA, in the "interest of national security," we took
part in intentionally misleading the nation, manipulating the press, the
courts and most politicians.
The CIA UFO cover-up, is being perpetrated against the American peo-
ple and not our potential enemies. The Russians have a whole town exclus-
ively for UFO research. The CIA insists that the UFO cover-up must be kept
at all costs, otherwise the military will be ineffective. The CIA correct-
ly maintains, that military personnel will disobey orders when confronted
by UFOs. For example, during the Vietnam War, pilots refused orders to fly
night missions against UFOs. Since fatal accidents, UFO related, are rela-
tively rare (with the exception of the Vietnam War), the CIA prefers to
maintain the cover-up.
NSA, NASA, CIA, RAND and AFOSI associates, have informed us that
UFOs have many origins. Some obviously represent civilizations, thousands
of years more advanced than we are. Almost everything about them, their
motives and operations are strange and incomprehensible to us. There is
little we can do to protect ourselves from them. The Air Force is totally
helpless to handle the situation, because of UFO's incredible flight per-
formance. The CIA and Pentagon are bewildered by UFOs' apparent ability to
jam all our ground and air electronic equipment, or instantaneously dis-
able all our weapons control systems. The CIA has decided to try to under-
stand and duplicate UFO propulsion systems at all cost. This means that
pilot lives have been sacrificed in UFO chases to get "UFO samples" for
research, therefore `Ignorance is Bliss.'
RAND maintains that the CIA is gambling that a major catastrophe,
such as the July, 1952, mass UFO appearance over Washington, DC and the
White House, will not happen again, so that no "explanations will be need-
ed. NORAD, along with many of us in the armed forces, bitterly oppose per-
petuation of this cover-up, pointing to the public panic potential of the
1952 disaster. We in the JMP feel that too many military personnel suf-
fered or died as a result of not being informed about UFOs. It is time to
tell our armed forces the truth. IT IS UNCONSCIONABLE to continue to use
military personnel as guinea pigs.
CRIMES WE COMMITTED UNDER CIA PRESSURE:
Forty years ago, the cover-up was confined to a very few individuals
within the Military and Government. Today, many thousands are effected or
involved. This deceitful CIA policy is breeding resentment in the serv-
ices, for we were ordered to act illegally, against our fellow military
personnel and our nation. Our JMP group has many military personnel and
others who are waiting to testify. The following are a few examples of
deceptive activities we carried out while on active duty:
1: We intentionally ordered pilots to shoot at UFOs, with the hope
of acquiring a UFO for research purposes. These resulted sometimes in
instant explosions and death to the pilots or instantaneous "disappear-
ances" of pilot and plane. The UFOs occupants seem to be monitoring all of
our pilots' actions. We analyzed hundreds of UFO gun camera films and it
seems that some UFOs are remote controlled.
2. We have strictly silenced military pilots who reported UFOs. We
do not allow our pilots to discuss UFO chases EVEN AMONG THEMSELVES.
3. We interrogated, intimidated and harassed military personnel who
saw UFOs, to "convince" them (excluding pilots and astronauts), that they
"did not see" what they saw; frightened them with the prospect of long
prison sentences if they told anyone what they saw; transferred them alone
to bases around the world, where, even if they were to talk, nobody would
believe them; forced some of them into mental institutions; jailed them;
destroyed their military careers; did everything possible to intimidate
UFO witnesses by fear into self doubt and silence.
4. We distributed fraudulent information, through Military and Gov-
ernment spokesmen or scientists, to debunk all public UFO sightings.
5. We forced the FAA, NASA, and other Government agencies to conform
to CIA UFO policies.
6. We violated the Freedom of Information Act by hiding documents.
7. We smeared commercial pilots who publicly reported UFOs and
forced their companies to silence them.
8. We did not confirm when civilian planes around the world also
temporarily lost control or completely disappeared when UFOs were present.
We slandered ruthlessly some of our most outstanding and competent
citizens, who dared to report UFO sightings, while we knew all along that
they were telling the truth, as we tracked the UFOs on radar.
10. We silenced Congressmen and Senators who requested UFO inform-
ation for their constituents. These representatives are now silent part-
ners to this cover-up and are consequently directly responsible for all
the crimes we committed.
PRESS IN DEFAULT:
The national UFO debunking campaign ordered by the CIA in 1953, pub-
lished books and planted hundreds of articles in the press, to create an
atmosphere of ridicule around the subject of UFOs, falsely creating "UFO
contacts" and "UFO" hoaxes. This campaign which is still in effect today,
infiltrated major civilian civilian UFO groups, to ridicule them or divert
their efforts towards "other explanations." This UFO cover-up has been suc-
cessful beyond CIA's highest expectations, due primarily to the brilliant
manipulation of the press by the CIA via the ridicule strategy. The Estab-
lishment Press, afraid of being ridiculed, proved to be gullible beyond
belief to "official statements."
The press, for example, in attempting to divorce itself completely
from UFO data, did not question why the CIA refused to give UFO informa-
tion to the then Senator Barry Goldwater who at the time was chairman of
the Senate Intelligence Committee. IF SENATOR GOLDWATER (WHO HAS BEEN
AWARE OF THE COVER-UP) DOES NOT HAVE A HIGH ENOUGH SECURITY CLEARANCE TO
GET UFO INFORMATION, THEN WHO IN OUR GOVERNMENT DOES? The press failed to
ask, if UFOs "do not exist," why did the CIA tell Senator Goldwater that
UFO data is classified "above top secret" and "above any other secret in
the USA"? The CIA debunking campaign, using some of the best brains in
this country, slowly "educated" most journalists that they can only be
rewarded, by abandoning any sense of journalistic ethics when it comes to
reporting about UFOs.
One of the most audaciously deceptive acts by the CIA involved Pres-
ident Carter (who himself had sighted a UFO), when he requested NASA to
look into the possibility of UFO research. Until that moment, all of us
who were involved with the UFO cover-up assumed that the President was
informed by the CIA about UFOs the moment he entered office and that he
was aware of the huge sum of money invested in UFO research since 1953.
Until that moment, IT WAS INCONCEIVABLE to us that the President of the
United States would be kept totally uninformed by the CIA.
At that time, NASA's scientific team concluded that the UFO cover-up
should end because the public already knew that most astronauts in space
photographed UFOs, or had been followed by UFOs, and that the astronauts
were forced by regulations to lie to the press. Shortly before NASA's re-
lease of the news to the press, the CIA insisted on continuing to maintain
the cover-up and pressured NASA to lied to the public. NASA therefore re-
leased a statement dictated by the CIA, contradictory to their own scien-
tists' conclusions. Victor Marchetti (former Executive Assistant to the
Deputy Director of the CIA), openly maintains that President Carter prob-
ably was forced to participate in the CIA's UFO cover-up.
Most of the preposterous "explanations" of UFOs were originated by
the CIA's debunking headquarters, and disseminated to the public mostly
through the Air Force, FAA, FBI, CIA, NASA, NORAD or Pentagon spokesmen.
These shocking, mind boggling "explanations" (swamp gas, stars, etc.),
released usually after long delays, often constituted an insult to Amer-
ican public intelligence, instead of an explanation. Though these "explan-
ations" often were not logical, scientific, or factual at all, they were
eagerly accepted by the press, which was relieved to quickly dispose of
"another UFO story." There were often sharp contradictions between these
"explanations" and the pilots and radar controllers' statements, which
rarely seemed to bother the press, who claim to be Government watch dogs.
SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY IN DEFAULT:
Project `Blue Book', the `Condon Report', and many notable scien-
tists, are part of the CIA's cover-up. The `Condon Report' is a scientific
farce which was immediately exposed as a fraud by the late Professor James
E. MacDonald (world's foremost, non CIA, authority on UFOs). The `Condon
Report' has been heavily criticized ever since by all other competent
scientists (who do not work for the CIA), who actually examined the report
in depth. Incredible as it seems, many in the scientific community today
have not, and still regard the `Condon Report' as an impartial scientific
study. This attitude is a source of much amusement and self satisfaction
in the intelligence community. This manipulation of American public opin-
ion and the advanced mind control techniques employed by the CIA, were de-
scribed by one Air Force doctor as: "Psychiatric Fascism contradictory to
any democratic principles."
Now more than ever, due to our highly sophisticated detection sys-
tems, UFOs are being detected frequently over our bases and missile silos
and they have tampered with our nuclear missiles. They are being photo-
graphed in restricted areas, monitoring our military experiments. We track
them visually and/or on radar across the USA and Canada almost daily.
World-wide intelligence reports indicate very similar sightings. Many of
us objected long ago to this senseless UFO cover-up. But we could not do
anything, because the CIA controls all our military intelligence agencies
and has overwhelming influence over many Government agencies.
FBI associates defined the UFO cover-up as the biggest crime ever
perpetrated against our people. The CIA, in the name of "National Security
Interest," has flagrantly violated the letter and spirit of the law. The
Uniform Code of Military Justice DOES NOT offer our soldiers any protec-
tion regarding this cover-up. As JMP members, we are torn between our de-
sire to maintain the military oath of secrecy and our sense of ethics as
responsible loyal citizens of this great nation. Yet we are fully dedi-
cated to preventing the UFO cover-up from continuing to be the status quo
in this free nation. When our country requests us in the military to give
up our lives for this land, the least the Government can do, is tell us
against whom we are fighting and why. We have the right to know.
JMP CIVIL RESPONSIBILITY:
Lack of competent news reporting on this issue, has led to the crea-
tion of JMP. We feel it is our responsibility to speak up for our citizens
who are still on active military duty. A RAND study indicates that, bar-
ring unforeseen circumstances, the CIA may continue the cover-up unabated
under the umbrella of secrecy and ridicule. JMP members therefore have pre-
pared a program that may effectively disintegrate the UFO cover-up. NSA
associate commented to us: "...once the nation will learn the magnitude of
the UFO cover-up, it may lead to a sense of awakening and outrage which
could lead to civil disobedience acts that will make the Boston Tea Party
pale by comparison, and may lead to the downfall of the CIA."
The CIA's collapse is not our intention because the CIA is important
for national defense. There is a need to preserve whatever integrity the
CIA may still have in the American public's eyes. The issue of this letter
is not CIA credibility, but our Government's credibility. This insane
CIA's UFO cover-up must end. It is a `Time-Bomb' which can't be disarmed.
This `Time-Bomb' according to RAND, is gaining momentum and must explode
one day, LET US EXPOSE IT NOW AND HELP SAVE ADDITIONAL UNNECESSARY LOSS OF
This letter intentionally omits the most spectacular events in the
UFO cover-up. Members of JMP fell that it will be more appropriate that
the President himself, once informed by the CIA, will disclose these
events to the nation. We regret the anonymity of this letter, but we have
no other choice because the CIA has a clear policy of eliminating any in-
siders who may expose the UFO cover-up. As soon as the Executive Order is
issued, we will be the first to testify. Please reply via the `MUFON UFO
Mr. President, you have a unique opportunity in the history of man-
kind. With the interest of national security and unity in our hearts, we
respectfully wait for your actions.
