The story about an underground base at Dulce has been floating around for a long time, but I've never seen any credible, verifiable evidence
regarding the existence of a subterranean base jointly operated by ETs and the U.S. military.
That said, there's a lot of weird stuff that occurs in that area. During the years that NIDS was studying the Skinwalker Ranch in Utah, my co-author
Dr. Colm Kelleher spent many weeks in and around Dulce, trying to figure out if there might be a connection between the two locations in light of the
apparent similarities of reported "paranormal" events. Colm was able to gain the trust of the Apache tribe that has lived in the area for centuries.
The stories they told were remarkably similar to events that had occurred at the Utah ranch. (Our book provides a detailed account of this.) The
Apaches reported dramatic UFO-type events dating back many generations, along with Sasquatch encounters, animal mutilations, poltergeist-like events,
and a host of other very strange stuff. Colm beliees the tribal elders were being truthful and that there was---and is--an unexplained presence in
the area. The Apaches did not lend any support to the idea of an underground military facility, and they know the region better than anyone.
As for animal mutilations, yes, I've investigated this for a lot of years. Linda Howe introduced me to the subject back in 1990. Since then, I have
personally visited mutilation sites in Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Alabama, Arkansas, etc. One of the most dramatic cases occurred right here in Las Vegas
at a small ranch on the edge of town. I was on site just a few hours after the carcass was found. Very strange. I still don't know what to make of
it. My interviews with ranchers and lawmen have convinced me that many of the mutilations were carried out by skillful surgeons and are not the work
of predators or cults. The hard physical evidence flatly contradicts these flimsy explanations. The UFO connection is not as well documented. My
personal belief is that there are two distinct sources for the mutes. One of the groups responsible is an unknown intelligence---for lack of a better
term, call them aliens. The other group is very human. In some cases, the human operatives seem to be shadowing the activities of the first group.
They might be conducting their own mutilations as a way to cloud the issue about the existence of the first group. They also might be taking advantage
of the situation, carrying out their own environmental monitoring program and purposely pointing a finger of guilt at "aliens" in the belief that
such a story will never be taken seriously by the mainstream media or government officials. There are some provocative theories that unknown
government or corporate entities are tracking the contamination of our food supply. For example, if the mad cow situation is much worse than we have
been led to believe---a scenario which I find to be more than possible---someone might use the UFO connection as a convenient cover story for carrying
out their own grisly operations. (There were several mutilation incidents on the Utah ranch that are very difficult to explain in any conventional
sense.) I recommend that anyone with an interest in this topic check out Colm Kelleher's first book "Brain Trust" which traces the creation and
spread of Mad Cow. It's a very disturbing read, one that just might change your eating habits.
What's my take on the Bennewitz affair and the roles played by Doty and Moore? I'm not an expert by any means and have no inside knowledge. It's a
tragedy on many levels. While it is tempting---and understandable--to condemn everyone involved, I think Doty was carrying out orders in the belief
that this was a legitimate national security concern. UFO honchos have pummeled Bill Moore for his admitted role as an observer to the whole thing,
but I'm not one of them. Moore was in a unique position to find out a great deal about how the military operates in the UFO arena. He confirmed that
disinformation programs are very real and he probably hoped that his position might lead to further, otherwise unobtainable insights. I think he
succeeded, to a degree, and suspect that there's a lot more he could tell us about the inner workings of the coverup and disinfo efforts. However,
after being publicly pilloried, he left the field altogether. I can't blame him. Had I been in the same spot with a chance to learn first hand how
things work, I might have made the same decision. I can't really say for sure.
