phenomenon of modern UFO research and folklore is the concept
of a "Conspiracy Theory" involving a Shadow Government
or a secret high powered military organization prepared
to collaborate with an "alien power" , presumably to further
its own ends and ambitions whilst putting aside that which
would be described as normal morals or ethics. This idea
seems incredulous but has any similar form of organization
existed in modern history? Has there been an agency structure
that could provide a "blue print" for such an organization?
Perhaps the Counter Intelligence Corps. (C.I.C.) a branch
of the U.S. Military could be said to comply with the above
description in many ways.
On New Years day 1942 the Corps. of
Intelligence Police was re-named the Counter Intelligence
Corps.. Originally based in Washington D.C. the headquarters
of the C.I.C. were relocated to larger premises in Baltimore.
The mission of the C.I.C. was to provide effective counter
- espionage , counter - sabotage and counter subversive
security. Agents could exercise imitative to "the fullest
extent" . Agents also " could resort to any means or
stratagems necessary" to accomplish the mission assigned.
It must be said that the keyword of the C.I.C. at this
time was "Loyalty to country " and British Intelligence
described them as " the most deadly sabotage team in
The C.I.C. was a very private organization.
Agents wore plain clothes and when in uniform carried no
identification or badge of rank. Reports from other parts
of the Military complained that the C.I.C. telephones were
not listed and the location of their offices kept secret.
The C.I.C. was also an elitist organization, lower ranks
often had higher I.Q.s than the average army officer. One
team of 20 was found to have 27 university degrees , including several
doctors of philosophy and a private who was a master of
Agents of the C.I.C. enjoyed extraordinary
powers , far beyond their rank or status including unlimited
powers of arrest. They existed behind a smokescreen of
secrecy . This caused alarm amongst the conventional regimented
sections of the Military. However, by 1945 the activities
of some of the lower ranks of the C.I.C. were causing concern
. For example , a C.I.C. staff sergeant was absolute ruler
over Bensheim (Germany) . He lived like a lord in a luxurious
villa whose German owner he had evicted, driving through
the locality in a white 1938 Mercedes Benz with a German
girlfriend on his arm. Another former agent remarked - " We
lived well amongst ruins and starvation . We wined and
dined and enjoyed the most beautiful women.
Agents also employed German personnel
to carry out investigations etc. - even former Nazis were
writing reports and entire C.I.C. offices controlled by
Germans ( having access to Top Secret reports , information
etc.). The C.I.C. was also involved in the Korean War but
by the 1960s had become more interested in Civil unrest
and disapproval of the war in Vietnam. At this time C.I.C.
agents were more likely to be found on university campuses
- indeed the C.I.C. was apparently disbanded when the full
extent of its domestic activities was revealed.
Is there any evidence to suggest that
C.I.C. members were later to rise to positions of great
Well, the C.I.C. staff sergeant who so enjoyed the good
life (see above) was Henry Kissinger , who later became
Secretary of State under President Nixon. Without doubt
Kissinger graduated from staff sergeant to one of the Worlds
most powerful men.
Was there any real evidence that the C.I.C. "made deals
with an alien force" ?
- - - it was revealed by College Professor
Erard Debringhaus that Klaus Barbie , Nazi war criminal
, was a full time , salaried informant of the C.I.C. Is
there any suggestion that a C.I.C. agent could be involved
with any other covert organization ? J.D. Sallinger was
also a member of the C.I.C.( not the O.S.S. as many believe).
Who was J.D. Sallinger ? He went on to write the American
classic novel "The Catcher in The Rye" . A book that is
reputed to have close associations with MKULTRA .
Finally it must be said that many
C.I.C. agents served loyally and with great courage. However,
in 1947 two professional writers , Fletcher Pratt and Thomas
M. Johnson began writing a full, true history of the C.I.C.
. In 1948 , along with a mass of historically priceless
documents, they disappeared never to be seen or heard from
again. Perhaps The Conspiracy Theory is not a theory after
is not an issue
the end of the 2nd World War in 1945 the most valuable
"looted" out of Germany was
a group of Nazi rocket scientists which was spirited away
by U.S. secret agents in what
came to be known as "Operation Paperclip". The
most famous of these rocket scientists was Vernher Von Braun
- a Nazi war criminal who traded his scientific knowledge
for U.S. citizenship and truly enormous research and
development budgets. Von Braun was quoted as saying The British
could not afford us, The Russians terrified us, so we went
to the Americans". Von Braun [ left ] joined the Nazi
party in 1937 and then the S.S. in 1940 - he definitely was
not a "simple scientist with no political beliefs" but
was a murderous fascist who was prepared to spill the blood
of innocents in order to fulfil his own ambitions. Werner

continue V2 Rocket research.

their arrival in the U.S.A. having been sneaked out

Initially Nazi rocket research was carried
out using "slave labour" at Peenemunde but when Allied
bombing raids destroyed this site research facilities were
moved to Dora - Mittlebrau , a series of underground ,
impenetrable caverns. Over 60,000 slaves worked round the
clock at gunpoint converting the former calcium sulphate
mines, the whole place being a vision of Hell to the unfortunate
workers - many of whom came from Buchenwald Concentration
Camp. Most feared of the caverns was Gallery 39 - the galvanizing
shop - where very few lived longer than two weeks, their
lungs disintegrating in the toxic fumes from the metal
The V2 Rocket
- the most desirable technology at the end of W.W.2
. There was almost no relationship to the V1, which
was a crude pilotless aircraft. The V2, however, weighed
nearly 12 tonnes and was powered by a liquid oxygen/alcohol
infringement of the rules resulted in the same penalty
- death by hanging - many of the survivors of Dora
- Mittlebrau remember such days as when Von Braun noticed
damage to the guidance system of a number of rockets. He
immediately ordered twelve workers to be hanged as
a warning to others. In a little more than 18 months Von
Braun witnessed over 20,000 men die in the terrible caverns
of Dora - Mittlebrau.
Obviously the success of N.A.S.A. and
the U.S. space program is based on the expertise
of Von Braun and his Nazi cohorts - in fact Von
Braun was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor for
his services to the Apollo Space Program but ,however,
he was also involved in the development of missiles for
use in the deployment of nuclear warheads and the U.S.
Black Budget Program - mainly taking place at Area
51 in Nevada. The ruthless, self seeking attitude
of Von Braun is still evident at Area 51 as was
proved in 1987 when civilian worker Robert Frost came
home ,screaming in pain and fear. This man and several
other workers had been affected by mysterious chemical
fires at Area 51 - two years later he was dead.
Scientist Arthur Rudolph [ left ] was
recruited to work for the U.S. space programme but was
called to account for his actions in WW2. Rather than admit
to employing a NAZI war criminal, the U.S. stripped him
of his U.S. citizenship and took back his Congressional
Medal of Honor. He was returned to Germany!

Area 51 ( often called
"Dreamland") as the base that does not exist but

U.S.A.F. will not accept responsibility for the injuries
and deaths related to Area51 on
the basis that the facility does not officially exist. Surely
the similarities of the German rocket base and Area
51 -both involving underground facilities, both involving
the highest degrees of secrecy and both being oblivious to
even the most basic of "human rights" shows that the attitudes
of such men as Von Braun [ right ] have
survived down through the years and have been developed into
a terrible philosophy that supports a ruthless group of men
- men in positions of great power .These are the men whose
activities are kept secret from other high ranking military
officers and politicians, these are the men who are a law
unto themselves - men who follow the concept that " Morality
is not an issue. Vernher Von Braun

the US wants control of space By
Julian Coman in Washington
The United States is planning to take control of parts of
space and develop patrolling military aircraft in orbit as
part of a revived Star Wars proposal for an American military
empire above the ozone layer.
According to James Roche, the US Air Force Secretary, America's
allies would have "no veto power" over projects
designed to achieve American military control of space.
The key theme of the ambitious plans is described as "negation" -
the denial of the use of space for military intelligence,
or other purposes, without American endorsement.
The plans come after the successful use of global positioning
satellites (GPS) and other space technology during the recent
wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), the intelligence
agency that is responsible for US spy satellites, is to develop
a strategy that ensures America's allies, as well as its
enemies, never gain access to the same space resources without
Washington's permission. Recent proposals that have been
circulated at Space Command and NRO briefings suggest that
access to "near-earth space" may be refused to
All GPS satellites are located within near-earth space, which
covers the orbital distance from Earth to the moon. A fleet
of spacecraft will be developed, designed to attack and destroy
future satellites of enemies and rivals. The rapid-launch "military
space plane," the potential cost of which has not been
disclosed, would also be used as a mobile
"bodyguard" for US space installations. It would
be the first "space plane" in history with a directly
A prototype is expected by 2005 although military deployment
is not expected before 2014. "It will hopefully be a
new kind of vehicle, equipped for the challenges of the future," said
a Pentagon official.
After the recent military action in Afghanistan and Iraq,
US Air Force Command claimed that American forces on the
ground had a decisive advantage in gathering intelligence
and targeting enemy troop positions.
As a result, the Pentagon believes that the struggle to control
space will form the next stage of a global arms race.
Its plans confirm that America expects space to be "weaponised" in
the medium-term future, and is determined to take an unassailable
Two years ago, a report commissioned by Donald Rumsfeld,
the US defence secretary, warned of the danger of a "Space
Pearl Harbor" if America did not take action to protect
At America's National Space Symposium, held in April in Colorado
Springs, Gen Lance Lord, the commander of US Air Force Space
Command, explained the logic of the new strategy to a largely
"The pursuit of asymetric advantage is not new," he
said. "In the 20th century, airpower emerged as just
such an advantage. Today, at the outset of the 21st century,
we are realising the same sort of advantage through space
It was at the same forum that Mr Roche warned America's allies
not to expect any veto over its plans.
Until now, international treaties have forbidden the deployment
of weapons in outer space, although a loophole exists which
allows the United States to use its satellites for military
The 1967 Space Treaty - the first international legislation
on space exploitation - also stated that outer space should
be free for exploration and use by all states, and would
not be subject to national appropriation by occupation or
any other means.
Last month, the Russian foreign minister, Sergei Ivanov,
repeated Moscow's demands for the complete demilitarisation
In March last year, however, Peter Teets, the under-secretary
of the air force and director of the NRO, said: "I believe
that weapons will go into space. It's a question of time.
And we need to be at the forefront of that."
A Department of Defence Review in 2001 also stated that "a
key objective [for the US] is not only to ensure US ability
to exploit space for military purposes but also as required
to deny an adversary's ability to do so". Canadian government
officials have already complained that senior American officials
have begun to exclude them from sensitive areas of joint
aerospace defence operations.
The implications of an American military monopoly in space
are bound to concern European allies, who have recently agreed
to launch their own $3.2billion satellite navigation system
- Galileo - which is to be used only for civilian purposes.
Europe has long resisted the prospect of a military use of
In the 1980s, Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defence Initiative
- the so-called "Star Wars" plan - to use space
technology to repel Soviet missiles, ending the era of nuclear
deterrence, drew fierce resistance from allies.
President George W Bush's plans for a satellite-guided missile
defence system have now largely been accepted.
