If this information is correct then it is indeed very complex.

Oohh...this was some bad mojo if I recall right. John Lear (current/former member?) would be the best to answer on this one, as I believe he's already admitted that this was a hoax, even though Bill Cooper still insisted it was genuine.
Figured it'd be an easy search "Krill hoax", so here's one link, though a simple search will pull up much more.
From above John Lear post
About the Krill papers. John Grace (Val Valerian) and I met in 1988. John worked at NellisAFB and I lived (and still live) just up on the hill overlooking Nellis. We both had an interest inUFO's and pooled our research. Because of the controvery surrounding the Krill papers I reread them a few months ago so that they are fresh in my mind. It was essentially what John and I felt was going on at the time. There was no deception involved. Later, a friend of mine, Chris Lambright asked about the name Krill. Krill is a play on words of CRLLL an alien that contacted the Pentagon in the early 50's. (no joke) John Grace was in the USAF at the time he wrote the Krill papers and didn't want to put his name so we decided to put "Krill" as the author as an inside joke and play on words to "CRLLL". I told Chris the name was an inside joke and he took the statement to mean the whole thing was an inside joke, which it was not.
