Beyond TOP SECRET: America’s UFO Spy Game

Gary S. Bekkum /July 22, 2010

( — Imagine this: your day job requires clandestine interaction with ordinary US citizens who have reported experiences of weird, inexplicable phenomena.

And at the end of the day, you must report your findings to your boss, the Director, and to his boss, the US President.

This isn’t the premise for an “X-files” inspired sci-fi TV series. It was, more or less, the conundrum faced by a handful of US government intelligence persons who were tasked with handling alleged psychics and the scientists investigating their super-human ‘powers’ in the 1970s.

That much is known from the declassified government record.

The issue of an extraterrestrial aspect to this story remains the stuff of rumor and “on background” tales of a “core story” — a tale of government collusion with an alien presence — available in numerous versions, according to taste.

In one version of the core, the US Air Force has been intimately involved with real, flesh and blood aliens, who arrived here in fantastically advanced spacecraft. Other versions of the core are darker and more disturbing: an otherworldly intelligence has been playing mind games with human beings for nefarious purposes.

In the 1990s, Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace (best known for his “space hotels,” inflatable platforms orbiting the Earth) funded an investigation into the darker side of the core.

Bigelow tapped Dr. Kit Green — a former senior CIA officer who had solved the Bulgarian umbrella poison pellet assassination in the 1970s — for his Science Advisory Board. The core question at the heart of the core story involved the possibility that the human mind was being manipulated using advanced technology.

About anomaly

SMiles Lewis has had a lifelong interest in all things anomalous. An early age proclivity at recalling his nightly dreams as well as several personal experiences with ESP, precognition and dream switching bolstered his interest in the paranormal. Shortly after high-school he joined the local MUFON chapter in Austin, Texas. He would later become a MUFON State Section Director for that group as well as leader of the local UFO Experiencer Support and Study Group. A lover of books, SMiles collected over 1000 titles before founding the non-profit Anomaly Archives that serves as the lending library of the Scientific Anomaly Institute (501c3). For over twenty years he has worked with digital audio, video and other bleeding edge internet technologies. He has published his own print journal (E.L.F. Infested Spaces), edited a local paranormal newspaper (Austin Para Times), maintained a large network of websites (, organized a national UFO conference (NUFOC-38), spoken to anthropologists about UFOs and parapsychology (Encounters with the Fantastic), hosted (and been a guest on) both terrestrial and webradio talk shows and has been podcasting since before the phrase existed. All these efforts and more have led radio talk show host Robert Larson to describe Miles as a “Gonzo Alt-Media Proprietor and Informationalist.” He is also the LOWFI-Texas State Bureau Chief of The League of Western Fortean Intermediatists. SMiles’ current projects include co-hosting PsiOp-Radio with Mack White as part of the many unique shows airing daily on his ANOMALY RADIO Network. He is active with several local non-profits which includes his service on the board of directors for the Institute for Neuroscience And Consciousness Studies (INACS) and the Scientific Anomaly Institute‘s lending library, the Anomaly Archives. His writings can be found within the Archives of his print journal ELFIS and ANOMALY Magazine. In his day job with the Texas State Library and Archives Commission‘s Talking Book Program he manages a Volunteer Recording Studio and audio duplication department and has been a consultant on two digital audio development documents for the Library of Congress‘ National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
