The Star of  Sorcerers

In December 1980, Colonel John Alexander published an article in the US Army's journal, Military Review, "The New Mental Battlefield", stating that telepathy could be used to interfere with the brain's electrical activity. This caught the attention of senior Army generals who encouraged him to pursue what they termed "soft option kill" technologies. After retiring from the Army in 1988, Alexander joined the Los Alamos National Laboratories and began working with Janet Morris, the Research Director of the US Global Strategy Council (USGSC), chaired by Dr Ray Cline, former Deputy Director of the CIA.

As it happens, in the same year that John Alexander went to work for the USGSC, in October of 1988, a program called UFO Coverup? Live!, produced by Michael Seligman in cooperation with William Moore, aired interviews with two "government informants" calling themselves by the code-names Falcon and Condor. The "informants" were interviewed behind screens, and with their voices electronically disguised in order to "prevent retaliation by the government." During the course of the interview, Falcon claimed that something called the MJ-12 group had its headquarters at the Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. and that the U.S. Navy had "primary operational responsibilities of field activities relating to MJ-12 policies." Falcon also informed the viewer that an extra-terrestrial was a guest of the U.S. government at the time, and that the aliens had a secret base at Area 51 in Nevada. The mysterious figure named "Condor" provided the interesting tidbit that the aliens liked "Tibetan music and strawberry ice cream."

A year later, in 1989 according to Dr Armen Victorian journalist for Lobster Magazine, Moore announced at a US MUFON convention at Las Vegas that the 1988 program contained a substantial amount of disinformation, although some of it was true. He then startled his audience:

Bill Moore (MUFON) on July 1 1989 in Las Vegas, how he was promised inside information by the senior members of the AVIARY in return for his obedience and service to them. He participated in the propagation and dissemination of disinformation fed to him by various members of the AVIARY. He also confessed how he was instructed to target one particular individual, an electronics expert, Dr. Paul Bennewitz, who had accumulated some UFO film footage and electronic signals which were taking place in 1980 over the Menzano Weapons Storage areas, at Kirtland Air Force Base, New Mexico. As a result of Moore's involvement, coupled with some surreptitious entries and psychological techniques, Bennewitz ended up in a psychiatric hospital. [1]

Well, of course one wonders why Bill Moore would shoot himself in the foot in this way in front of an audience. Not only was he setting himself up to be considered untrustworthy by his MUFON peers, he was betraying his "masters." The only reasonable conclusion to draw from this is that the entire "revelation" was orchestrated exactly as it developed, and was, in fact, part of the disinformation process. What is curious about the whole affair is that the AVIARY has now achieved status similar to "MJ-12" even though, in the beginning, the only real connection between all of the members was the fact that they were all known to William Moore.

In 1990 Howard Blum mentioned the Aviary in his book Out There which identified "The Falcon" and named Paul Bennewitz and Richard Doty.[2]

Throughout 1990 the USGSC pushed its agenda, the result being the creation of a Non-lethality Policy Review Group, led by Major General Chris S. Adams, USAF (retired), former Chief of Staff, Strategic Air Command.

In 1991 Janet Morris of USGSC issued a number of papers on the concept of non-lethal weapons. Shortly afterward, the US Army Training and Doctrine Command at Fort Monroe, VA, published a detailed draft report on the subject, titled "Operations Concept for Disabling Measures". In a memorandum dated April 10, 1991, titled "Do we need a Non-lethal Defense Initiative?", Paul Wolfwitz, Under Secretary of Defense for Policy, wrote to Defense Secretary Dick Cheney, "A US lead in non-lethal technologies will increase our options and reinforce our position in the post-Cold War world. Our Research and Development efforts must be increased."

In 1991, Fate magazine became one of the major vectors of disinformation, naming the Aviary and the involvement and or activities of Doty, Bennewitz and Moore.[3] Fate Magazine's current "chief disinformant" is Rosemary Guiley.

In mid 1992 investigations by member of UFO groups in the USA purportedly revealed a shadowy organization known as "The Aviary" comprising of ex military or intelligence civilians and officers. ". The purpose according to early reports of the Aviary was to de-bunk UFO investigations or feed disinformation and to encourage investigators to follow the wrong path. [4]The first reliable mention of this group on Usenet indicates it was disclosed by Don Allen in about 1992 using it as a NSA keyword AVIARY[5]

Don Allen was active in the MUFON groups as well as being involved in a group known as Ovotron. Ovotron was a conjunction of UFO/Conspiracy/New Age collectives nestled in the mountains of North Carolina. Ovotron continues on under the guidance of Kortron and Solinus in the same North Carolina backwoods pyramid. Last mention of Don Allen appears to be some Tesla Coil experiments carried out in Colorado.

THE Aviary membership was expanded in print in June 1993 in the British para-political magazine The Lobster as mentioned above. The author, Dr Armen Victorian was writing an article on Non-Lethal Warfare. His focus seems to have been Colonel John Alexander. Victorian mentioned the names of several ex-intelligence officers, civilian scientists with military clearance and military officers,where where each of these officers worked, and described their involvement in numerous their varied fields. Armen stated:

Alexander and C.B. Jones are members of the AVIARY, a group of intelligence and Department of Defence officers and scientists with a brief to discredit any serious research in the UFO field. Each member of the AVIARY bears a bird's name.

What seems to be the connecting principle is a background of Remote Viewing or psi type activities by most of the members with some only interested in UFO research and others somehow blending the remote viewing/UFO exercise. It also appeared to be disproportionately represented with physicists. The question is, of course, what are they looking for with their remote viewing and what do they plan to do with it with their physics?

Victorian's original Aviary list was as follows.

OWL - Dr Harold Puthoff - Parapsychologist, Ex NSA( Later found to be false)
FALCON - C.B.Jones - Parapsychology/psychotronics, Navy Intel, DIA, MUFON
(1989) As a consultant.
PENGUIN - John Alexander - Former Army Intel on the board of Psi-tech.
PELICAN - Ron Pandolphi - Physicist CIA.
BLUEJAY - Dr Chris Green - CIA.
RAVEN - Dr Jack Verona - DIA DoD
HAWK: Unnamed

Later this list was extended a little. The best source for information I have found has been Bother Blue and Doc Hambone websites. Coincidently both sites have lapsed, one being taken over by SAIC corporation- coincidently staffed by several ex CIA and NSA types[6] and benefactor of SRI remote viewing research. Fortunately both sites have been mirrored by enthusiasts.

 Brother Blue describes the Aviary as an:

An ad-hoc dysfunctional family of disparate military/intelligence spooks who share an interest in UFOs and parapsychology yet often work at cross-purposes and frankly don't even get along with each other all that well. Extremely weird birds.

His circa 1998 list is as follows .[7]

BLUE JAY - Dr. Christopher "Kit" Green, MD, Ph.D; Chief, Biomedical Sciences Department, General Motors, former head of the CIA's UFO files at the "Weird Desk."  

PELICAN - Ron Pandolfi, Ph.D. (physics)., CIA Deputy Director for the Division of Science and Technology and current custodian of UFO files at the "Weird Desk."

CHICKEN LITTLE - Dan Smith, civilian UFO research/volunteer liaison among sources within the Central Intelligence Agency, the Congressional Intelligence Committees and civilian UFO researchers. Smith continually exchanges information and networks with key UFO researchers, serves as their interlocutor and shares their findings and his own with his sources at the CIA and on Capitol Hill

PARROT - Jacques Vallee, Ph.D., formerly an astrophysicist working with Paris Observatory and the Space Committee (nothing to do with UFOs), later moved to U.S. as principal investigator with Defense Department computer network projects; worked with famed astronomer and dear friend Dr. J. Allen Hynek who left and denounced the military's Project Blue Book as a disinformational smokescreen; prolific author on UFO subjects.

PENGUIN - Colonel John Alexander, Ph.D. (Death Science!), U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command. Currently involved with NIDS.

OWL - Hal Puthoff, Ph.D.(Physics), ex-NSA/SRI physicist with the Institute for Advanced Research in Austin, Texas. Ex-OT III scientologist.

CHICKADEE - Cmdr. C.B. Scott Jones, Ph.D. (International Studies), USN (Ret.), former officer with the Office of Naval intelligence and other agencies; 30 years service in U.S. intelligence overseas; involved in government research and development projects for the Defense Nuclear Agency, Defense Intelligence Agency, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and other organizations; former aide to Sen. Clairborne Pell, who has had a long-standing interest in UFOs and the paranormal and has tried to arrange Congressional hearings on UFOs.

SEA GULL - Bruce Maccabee, Ph.D. (Physics), research scientist in optical physics and laser weapons applications at the U.S. Naval Surface Weapons Lab, Maryland; MUFON physics/photo-interpretive consultant.

HARRIER - Dale Graff, Defense Intelligence Agency who fought to keep Pandolfi out of the DIA "RV/psi" loop.

BUZZARD - Gordon Novel, friend of Alexander and the "Forrest Gump of Conspiracies" is rumored to be the grassy knoll's "Umbrella Man" at the time of the JFK hit and subsequently stymied the Garrison investigation into the affair, singlehandedly "brought the entire CIA to it's knees for a day," degaussed many of Nixon's Watergate tapes and most recently is said to have filmed (via FLIR) Janet's Waco holocaust from a friend's Cessna. His relationship to the Martians, however, remains unclear at this point.

NIGHTINGALE - Jack Verona.

WOODPECKER - Jaime Shandera, a small-time Hollywood film producer who at one time apparently served as a media-arm.

FALCON - Sgt. Richard "Dick" Doty, USAF (Ret.); Special Agent, Air Force Office of Special Investigations.

CONDOR - Capt. Bob Collins, USAF (Ret.); Special Agent, Air Force Office of Special Investigations. Spotted often in 1997 on various USENET saucer-nut groups spouting delightfully absurd tales.

HAWK - Ernie Kellerstrauss.

The Doc Hambone site describes the Aviary as follows:

I believe the term "Aviary" was first coined by ufologist and self-described government informant William Moore, to include the agents he supposedly dealt with, who were often codenamed after birds. Victorian and others, like psychiatrist and ufologist Richard Boylan, have claimed that the Aviary is the official codeword, and that they have met with various agents. The individuals involved expanded to include almost anyone that supports or debunks UFO research that is in any way connected to the government. Michael Persinger has been included, as well as Susan Blackmore for interviewing him. It has degenerated to the point that it's now an inside joke on the newsgroups, with people giving each other codenames like Pigeon and Dodo Bird.

So what are we to think? It does seem that there is something going on. There is a lot of smoke and mirrors but we don't seem to be able to find the fire all in one place. Can we track these sources of disinformation, this Cosmic COINTELPRO? Where are they now and what are they doing and could there possibly be other so-called Aviary members?

It appears so. To do so, one has to look at the organisations that these individuals are in and at the same time examine other individuals in the periphery. It appears to be, that there is not one organisation such as the Aviary, but several organisations forming a network, the designated Aviary being only one of these. The influence and scope of the individuals is far reaching as has been described in the Adventures Series.

Basically, it breaks down into 6 organisations which are part of from what shall be referred to from now on as the The Star of  Sorcerers. The reason the author has designated the term sorcerers goes along the line of argument as expressed on the Brother Blue site. Sorcerers take on different guises throughout time to the establishment in power at that time, whether they be clairvoyants in the middle ages, Enochian magicians in Elizabethan times, or physicists and remote viewers in this intel-backed information age.

What has happened with this group of sorcerers is that it appears they have broken away from the ties of establishment in power at the time and formed their own separate organisation of power although there still remains close ties to the one Time Master, in this case being the US military and intelligence machine - The Industrial-Military Complex - a Consortium.

The six main organisations that the Star of Sorcerers are involved with are as follows.

The Aviary: Using Brother Blue's analogy an ad-hoc dysfunctional family of disparate military/intelligence spooks...

NIDS: Privately funded research organisation dealing with UFO's and Paranormal activities

Jack Sarfatti's Stardrive mailing list: An open mailing list dealing with physics and the applications it has on interplanetary propulsion systems as well as time.

The Institute of Noetic Science: Organisation set up by astronaut Edgar Mitchell researching and teaching consciousness studies and human potential.

The Warrior's Path: A collective of fringe scientists, remote viewers

 The Axiom Faculty: Composed of scientists, researchers, mystics, shaman, pundits, seers, healers - exceptional teachers showing us new maps of reality.

When one maps these six groups one ends up with a Star of David configuration with offshoots from this network. It looks something like this


We will continue this discussion in a subsequent article, listing the names of the members and cross-referencing them.
