Operation Mind Control by Walter Bowart.
This is precisely the kind of dangerous information that governments fear. Operation Mind Control is not conspiracy theory. It is documented fact. Governments live by lies, by bamboozling and hiding the truth from their subjects. Accordingly, the primary task of opponents of modern tyranny, as libertarian Murray N. Rothbard pointed out, is an educational one: to awaken the public to this manipulation and propaganda, by demystifying and desanctifying the state apparatus upon which such lies are built upon. Walter Bowart heroically accomplished this feat.
Operation Mind Control spoke truth to power as few books published in the past thirty years have done. That is why the government tried to destroy it. Years ago I had the opportunity to discuss these matters with John Marks, the brilliant author of The Search For The Manchurian Candidate: The CIA and Mind Control. Mark's volume somehow escaped the government's relentless campaign waged upon its predecessor. I highly recommend his book in addition to Operation Mind Control. Two excellent documentaries tell the sordid and shocking story discussed in these books. They are, Mind Control: America's Secret War, and Bad Trip To Edgewood.

-theres an excellent (free) E-book below about CIA mind control experiments - I don't think it discounts incidents like the Pascagoula, Allagash or Manhattan abductions but its most definitely worth a read.

Alien Abductions Debunked? The Secret Story of the CIA's Top Secret Program: MK-ULTRA

Now it’s important to note that the original wikipedia excerpt of the Boas abduction case was not a complete one; In the full story, Antonio and his brother saw “sweeping lights” in the days leading up to the alleged abduction. For the full-blown account, check out this page:
“Was there talk about flying saucers in the area before Antonio’s experience?” I inquired of the lucid old lady.
“What I and many others saw, since I was a child, were lights that moved over a hill not too far from here. Many of them descended like stars in the evenings. I remember having seen them on several occasions since 1941.
Once I saw a huge object, perhaps made of metal, silvery, that made a lot of noise. In 1964 or 1966 my daughters were playing in the schoolyard when they had to vacate it as quickly as possible: a flying saucer had landed there. The teachers saw it and were terrified. They all fled.”

Is this proof that some early abduction’s, or all abductions, were/are the result of shadow government/black ops operations? Or is this proof that some people are doing everything they can to spread the most amount of disinformation possible, with a goal of de-crediting the hypothesis that people have had contact with Extra-terrestrial beings?
What was the whole reasoning behind these operations? Was it to start a bout of disinformation on all levels of the UFO phenomena? Or was it to see the public reaction in order to prepare them for real first-contact? Or was it to see the public’s reaction in order to set forth the agenda of the so called “gray-alien” abductions?
Whether or not we take this story as evidence to support this “MK-ULTRA run abductions” theory, or dismiss the entire story as hogwash, it nonetheless adds even more dimensions and depth to the UFO/abduction phenomena, especially in the disinformation sector.
Look over this story and feel free to comment/add your ideas and opinions.
The Evolution of Project MKULTRA
With the CIA and National Security Council firmly established, the first in a series of covert brain-washing programs was initiated by the Navy in the fall of 1947.
Project CHATTER was developed in response to the Soviet’s "successes" through the use of "truth drugs." This rationale, however was simply a cover story if the program were to be exposed. The research focused on the identification and testing of such drugs for use in interrogations and the recruitment of agents. The project was officially terminated in 1953.
The CIA decided to expand their efforts in the area of behavior modification, with the advent of Project BLUEBIRD, approved by director Allen Dulles in 1950. Its objectives were to:
(1) discover a means of conditioning personnel to prevent unauthorized extraction of information from them by known means
(2) investigate the possibility of control of an individual by application of special interrogation techniques
(3) investigate memory enhancement
(4) establish defensive means for preventing hostile control of agency personnel
In August 1951, Project BLUE BIRD was renamed Project ARTICHOKE, which evaluated offensive uses of interrogation techniques, including hypnosis and drugs.
The program ceased in 1956. Three years prior to the halt of Project ARTICHOKE, Project MK-ULTRA came into existence on April 13, 1953 along the lines proposed by Richard Helms, Deputy Director of Central Intelligence (DDCI) with the rationale of establishing a "special funding mechanism of extreme sensitivity."
The hypothetical etymology of "MK" may possibly stand for "Mind Kontrolle." The obvious translation of the German word "Kontrolle" into English is "control." A host of German doctors, procured from the post war Nazi talent pool, were an invaluable asset toward the development of MKULTRA. The correlation between the concentration camp experiments and the numerous sub-projects of MKULTRA are clearly evident.
“however there are other people who claim that abductions are the result of government experiments.”
The Research of Melinda Leslie:
Melinda Leslie's research into the military or intelligence covert-ops reverse engineering of extraterrestrial abductees, also known as MILABs and RE-ABs in ufology, is redefining both the UFO cover-up and abduction paradigms by showing that the military-industrial management of extraterrestrial related information and technology includes the monitoring and re-abduction of alien abductees.
She finds that just as covert-ops personnel gathers and reverse-engineers ET craft, they also gather and reverse-engineer abductees – and for the same reason; furthering development of secret advanced programs and technologies and control of the information.
Her research shows that covert-ops military personnel surveillance, re-abduct, and interrogate abductees to gather information on ET motives, ET genetics, ET technology, and abductees’ psi (paranormal) abilities. She investigates the newest developments, cases, evidence, and detailed experiences of the abductees involved. Additionally, Melinda feels strongly that her research demonstrates why there can't be an official UFO disclosure without addressing the abduction phenomenon.
The late Dr. John E. Mack on MILABS from an interview by Melinda Leslie:
“…I have cases I’m working with particularly in some depth where military involvement has been very important, disturbing, ongoing, and complicated. I have others that have seen military people as well…The person feels they’re being menaced in day-to-day life by black helicopters, MIBs, men in uniform, and people in dark cars…This is not like a regular feel…abductees are transported to some underground place…
There is some relationship, some kind of communication and collaboration between certain extraterrestrial beings in this underground place and the military people. The abductees are in some kind of intermediary role between these (covert-ops) types and the beings…” in some kind of intermediary role between these (covert-ops) types and the beings…”
The late Dr. Karla Turner on MILABS from an interview by Melinda Leslie and Randy Koppang:
Dr. Karla Turner died of cancer on January 10, 1996, after being threatened for her work.
She was just 48. Since then, several other people involved in UFO investigation have also experienced threats followed by highly unusual cancers.
