You don't fly someone in from Germany and then let them get arrested by cops with no drivers license driving from Tennessee to Florida with a broken tail light. that's just stupid. You don't go officially AWOL with your name on police lists either for any sanctioned mission... so it just feels psy op ish.


Definitely something very odd. Vance Davis says the same in his interview . He was preparing to face a long time in jail.

Although I also had the feeling he was hyping the story and making out the GB6 were important for some reason. He makes out he had the highest of top secret clearances and because of that refuses to divulge information as well. Even suggests that President Bush was involved in their release. They were attempting to get the predictions of the "Safire" entity to the highest authority they could. They were told to leave Europe and they would be protected. And it seems like they were once they were arrested.

I don't think it panned out like that to be honest.



I think they believed they were doing something important.. even though it was just a cover..


My suspicion too. Maybe the GB6 were the ones who actually delivered the missing plans and photos. And once they did their get out of jail free card was presented?

Here ya go, guys... I filed a couple of FOIA requests on the mysterious message and accompanying photos, and I'd encourage others to file requests too. You can read about my requests and related thoughts in my latest blog post, FOIA Rundown.


Thanks again Jack for updating us.

And for your FOIA Rundown

Let's not let this one go.

I've just been catching up on my GB6 reading. I personally find this case more interesting than your standard UFO fare because it's not so tightly constrained to any specific narrative (ETs! MKULTRA! etc.) that you can't see it struggling wildly to get out. Personally I'm in the psyop camp, or as Jack Brewer put it better over at The UFO Trail, see it as an inflection point in "the evolution of woo pedaling in intel circles."

I have a lengthy quote from Vance Davis' book that describes the ouija sessions. Apparently the first four session involved only Bill, Mike, Ken and Vance. In the first one, the spirit they contact specifically advises them never to believe anything they are told or read and to always to confirm everything. In the second , Ken demands some kind of proof from the spirit itself; the spirit attempts to comply, but Ken says the answer it gives is wrong and calls BS. In the next session, the spirit gives them the name Gabriel, a woman in Munich who could tell them about UFOs and such. (As Mirageman noted above.)

The whole sequence struck me. From an experimental perspective, the spirit's adjuration in the first session to not believe anything and to confirm everything is kind of like setting a baseline or a pre-test to make sure any observed experimental effects are indeed due to the intervention, not some pre-existing condition or bias. Ken tries to get psychic proof in the second session, and the spirit fails him. In the third session, voila, they get Gabriel, Woman of Munich. They actually meet her and get documents from her (I'd like to know more about that interaction!) because *that* couldn't possibly be a set up.

Annette doesn't join in until the fifth session (how did she find out about it? what was her relationship to the others?) and I don't know about the sixth guy's participation at all. But Davis himself notes that the final four (of a total of eight, I believe) sessions were the most significant. Here they start getting the predictions that according to Davis showed "a domestic enemy had put itself into a power position within the government, and was trying to undo what the U.S. was built upon," in other words, really having their mission-specific chains yanked.

In other words, in retrospect you can kind of see a story arc to the sessions, with cautious approach followed by buy-in followed by revelation and manipulation. Surveying newspaper clippings, you can kind of see the whole story morph yet more when the six are in the US encountering different people and news agencies. Great stuff!

It's a strange tale isn't it?

The other thing is that other than Davis the other 5 members seem to have become internet ghosts. There are hardly any pictures in the contemporary reports. In fact it's like trying to find a picture of all four Beatles together AFTER they'd split up.

Best I could do is find a pciture of 5 of them (not Annette Eccleston). Didn't realize they were all black guys




I dare say if you really dig deep then you could probably trace them. From what I gathered, in the interview with Davis, 3 of them were friends from school and the others joined them in studying 'parapsychology' when they arrived at Augsburg. There's another interview with Davis where he mentions a Soviet coup in Moscow involving Osama Bin Laden if I remember it right???? (Don't quote me on it though!)

That note "Free the Gulf Breeze Six...." intrigues me the most and how the following year their unit won this award



The 701st Military Intelligence Brigade was awarded the NSA Travis Trophy. Recognized as having made the most significant contribution in signals intelligence in the entire nation, second to none!


We only have a tiny piece of the jigsaw puzzle.

Think about the movie Argo. What if back in 1979 you found out that the CIA had bought the rights to a movie called "Argo" but that's all you know. How do you piece it together? How would you even link it to a plot for getting the diplomats out of Iran?

As the producer in the movie itself says in that film.


If you want to sell a lie, you get the press to sell it for you.


Sure enough we see lots of incredible stories about what the GB6 had deserted for.

Although it may worth interrogating the CIA online database for clues:

www.cia.gov...

I agree it's more interesting than the average UFO yarn. I also agree we can look back and see some dynamics playing out that might indicate a few different possibilities.

BTW, below is a photo of Eccleston. It's from the July 19, 1990, edition of the Pensacola News Journal and can be viewed on page 90 of this pdf.



One more thing... There's understandably a little confusion about the discharges of the six. They were originally to be discharged with full honors, but that was changed to reduction in rank, fined (I think they were docked a half month pay), & issued general discharges. Still, it wasn't what we might consider stiff penalties, but I don't know what was typical at the time for such circumstances. See the article on page 67, which also reports that three of the six, Beason, Eccleston, and Hueckstaedt, were back in Gulf Breeze within three weeks of being taken into custody. Kinda wild.

Jack, I haven't had the opportunity to formally (informally if that is the way the inter webs are) remark to you, that I believe your blog is the pinnacle of unbiased, truth-seeking journalism in this very unforgiving line of inquiry. Bravo.

I hope to see you contribute on ATS in the future.

Cheers,

Tony

Thanks again Jack.

I agree this is a much more interesting case than 'most' UFO cases. I missed the photo of Eccleston so brownie point to you there as well.

The overall point I was making was that there don't seem to be any pictures of the GB6 together as a group on the web. Nor does there seem to be any reasonable quality photos (Vance Davis excepted) at all. Past or present. Their motivations for deserting also seem to have been subject to 'extreme speculation' in the news media at the time.

Finally the website : CIA library

It has a poor search engine I've ever seen. It's almost useless beyond searching a single word.

What did we expect?

Hey, thanks! I appreciate that very much.

@ mirageman:

I agree there is a frustrating lack of verifiable info combined with rampant speculation. Even in interviews of Vance Davis it seems like the interviewer often failed to ask some of the more piercing questions, and that Davis was, at best, not overly skilled at explaining things clearly or in detail.

The often dysfunctional FOIA process is particularly frustrating in such circumstances. The opportunity exists to clarify actuality and minimize conspiracy theories, yet the lack of declassification often persists. It's no wonder the public has such a lack of trust in government and authority figures.

I know the general details. But Roddenberry's involvement over here I was not aware of?

Do you have a link to further information on that?


From memory I think this is a claim in a book from Courtney Brown who, in a remote viewing session, was told by an entity that they were influencing the Star Trek storyline through thought projection into the sleeping dreams of someone associated with the show - I think it was assumed that was Rodenberry.

I don't believe Rodenberry is on record as having commented on this, it was insinuated it was done without his knowledge and I'm not aware he took part in anything himself.

Just providing the info, not commenting on veracity !

Um huh what?!?

So who was the "Anti-Christ" which they "targeted"?

There is a lot of confusion because of various statements from the Pentagon and what was reported in the media at the time. According to the spin some of the Gulf Breeze Six believed the Antichrist was Ed Walters!

One source being from Georgia MUFON State Section Director Larry Hebebrand on page 77 of the pdf provided by Jack Brewer.



If you read other reports the group claimed nothing of the sort and no mission concerning any antichrist.

WTF does the "Anti-Christ" have to do with UFO's?

Cmon guys, lets keep a straight narrative at least??!!??

They are both elements involved with the reports of why the Gulf Breeze Six went AWOL. Did you actually read the thread?

To me, the most pertinent and eyebrow raising coincidental (?) element of all this, is the potential psyop element, and particularly the Stubblebine angle, however tenuous it may be.

This is highly circumstantial of course, but the idea that Stubblebine oversaw the remote viewing program(s) which included a lot more than simply remote viewing eventually as anyone who has looked into them will know, those programs allegedly died due to poor results, and then there are all these strange events always associated somehow with hypnosis-like states of consciousness and progressive alteration of subjects' beliefs and actions... and then Stubblebine marries a pro-hypnotic-regression UFO researcher, with similarly impressive (albeit in a different field obviously, academic in her case) credentials.

Finding this on the same blog this story was sourced from, apparently I'm not alone in this thinking: ufotrail.blogspot.com...

Coincidence? Could well be. And I don't want to make assertions about people or cast assertive aspersions upon them. This is not an assertion or accusation, just musings.

But I have long suspected a nexus we aren't quite seeing between the intelligence community, hypnosis (and other altered states - anything facilitating suggestibility or "openness" coupled with intense relaxation and focus,) and these kind of anomalous phenomena and epiphenomna. Most specifically: the potentially witting use of hypnosis to "create" memories, beliefs, and actions.

And when I say hypnosis, I refer to an induced state of consciousness... including self induced, such as... for pewp and giggles... the intense focus conjured by trying to use a Ouija board, or pendulums, or channeling. All things the intelligence community at various points investigated the efficacy of.

There are two possibilities, imho.

1) Various individuals and entities within the IC have at various points throughout history simply been subject to the same kinds of self-delusion, confabulation, and flights of fancy anyone may be, and some of them just so happen to cross paths with events like the Gulf Breeze 6 or be in their similar geographic or professional "area" by either sheer coincidence, or shared personal interests. (This would, all things being equal, seem to be the most probable mundane explanation.)

Or

2) There is something about the focus and concentration-meets-susceptibility intrinsic to these states of consciousness, that allows something we don't yet know about to happen in particular individuals. Something that has potential intelligence applications we aren't quite able to imagine or grock.

If, hypothetically, the latter was happening... UFOs, ghosts, and spiritism would sure make convenient and easily discredited cover stories. And popular, easily disseminated ones, too. If people laugh, it serves the purpose of isolating the victims/subjects and alienating them. (No pun intended.) If people start to believe it, it serves the purpose of cover story, since it still isn't the real truth. And if true, there's at least some chance people wouldn't know it was happening to them at all in that way, because they'd be invested in the false narrative created on a deep and personal level.

It could explain the "high strangeness" of a lot of these cases if we're talking about psychotropics, hypnosis, and other states of consciousness. Induced temporal lobe effects, perhaps. Who knows? There are all sorts of ways you can make someone believe something is happening that isn't... both exotic and extremely simple, if done well. And isn't that the job of the IC, at least in part? To, in the pursuit of intelligence gathering and analysis, successfully conceal the truth about what they're doing, through obfuscation, manipulation, concealment, and misdirection?

This has enormous potential implications for everything from events like this, to popular UFO and abduction literature in general, and the narratives advanced therein. Despite the fact that hypnotic regression is not considered remotely reliable in the psychiatric community - except, sometimes, for behavior modification, not for memory reconstruction (behavior modification... should alarm bells be ringing at this prospect in the context of this story?) - it continues to be employed routinely by abduction "researchers." In the case of someone like David M Jacobs, even over the phone. (Yes, really. Look it up.)

The question has always been asked: why cover up UFOs, alien contact, etc. if indeed it exists for so many decades? Well what if the answer is something we don't want to hear, and something SO damning, that concealing it is absolutely critical to national security in a way no one expects? Namely that it's all psyops and behavior modification (not quite literal "mind control," which may be a misnomer) experiments with convenient, built in scapegoats, that would incite riots if it could be proved to be occurring on such a scale. (And perhaps worse still, could be used against us by adversaries.)

Hardly a new idea obviously, and I'm not saying this is something I believe is true... but this particular case and the odd connections between people, places, and times definitely, as I said, raises my eyebrows. It brings this possibility - or something like it - into slightly starker relief, is all I'm saying. Especially as I've of late been casting a far more skeptical eye toward the somewhat startling and at times downright bizarre methodology employed by some abduction investigators... and the way so many just accept their ostensible results at face value.

Whether by design, or just emergent behavior... some sort of alteration of people's perceptions, beliefs, and even core values is at work. What if "aliens" aren't the ones doing it? What if it's the same entities who have sought to do this since time immemorial: human beings, to other human beings.

Anyway. Just a thought.

Peace.
