Government Surveillance & UFOs

First Half: Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered around the murky canals of a bayou town in Louisiana, leading local law enforcement officials to pursue a serial killer theory. Author and investigator Ethan Brown joins George Knapp to discuss how these homicides were not the work of a serial killer, but the violent fallout a brutal sex and drug trade and a backwoods underworld hidden in plain sight.

Second Half: Andrew Cohen is one of the most controversial spiritual teachers of the last thirty years. In 2013, his organization EnlightenNext collapsed amidst claims of abuse and the shocking revelation it had been a cult. Alex Howard, the founder of Conscious 2, and director Meagen Gibson will discuss a new 6-part television series which investigates the danger of unchecked power in the hands of a charismatic leader, and how this co-existed alongside genuine spiritual awakening.

Government Surveillance & UFOs

Show Archive
Date: Tuesday - March 14, 2006
Host: George Noory
Guests: Nick Redfern, Richard C. Hoagland

UFO researcher and author Nick Redfern talked about his work uncovering how the entire UFO research community has been monitored by U.S. Intelligence Agencies dating back to the 1940's. In the era before UFO investigators, the media covering flying saucers were watched by agencies such as the FBI, he noted. The Men in Black phenomenon, in which UFO witnesses were questioned by mysterious agents, were actually military and CIA personnel in many cases, added Redfern, who said that 'MIB' activity occurred in the U.K. as well as the U.S.

Surveillance of well-known figures of the 1950s contactee movement, such as George Adamski, George Van Tassel and George Hunt Williamson also took place. Through the Freedom of Information Act, Redfern was able to retrieve the FBI files on these contactees, and found that they contained factual accounts of interviews and conferences rather than evaluations of their claims. According to Leonard Stringfield, an early investigator of UFO crashes, some of the people involved in the contactee movement were actually plants used by agencies to infiltrate the UFO community. Redfern believes that government and military surveillance of those involved with UFOs continues, and that people need to be aware of this, so a stand can be taken against it.

He also discussed the case of the U.K.'s Matthew Bevan, who hacked into the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base's computer in the mid 1990's in an attempt to discover UFO secrets. Reportedly he found files similar to craft descriptions made by Bob Lazar.
