That is one hypothesis I see as highly likely. Being an "abductee" myself, I was sceptical of the idea at first, because I just don't usually get
the super-powerful secret government conspiracies. But I was contacted by a researcher who held this hypothesis and was had some pretty strong
evidence. He asked me for info on my own family, and I went asking questions and researching about them.
This guy was curious to know if any of my family had served in the military, because he was finding certain coincidences in the families of
"abductees". I was surprised to find both of my grandfathers (maternal and paternal) were in the army, and probably stationed in New Mexico at the
same time (where my mother was born).
One had been involved in some laboratory work there, which relatives say was "secret", but they claim he had a part in building the H-bomb. After
leaving the army, he came out with a large amount of money that he used to create his own company in Calif., became a millionaire, and sold it to
Lockheed -Martin right before his death. How he got that money is completely unknown by anyone in my family, under what circumstances he left the army
is unknown, and I cannot figure out how a man who stopped school at fourteen and was a jazz musician ended up working in a laboratory!
The other grandfather, I cannot get any info on what he was doing in the army. Only that after leaving it, he also came to came to California, and was
thereafter "weird". He had strong beliefs in psychic phenomenon, and was getting his family together each night to teach them of Edgar Cayce's
readings and "psychic stuff." (-that's the most precise description I was able to pull from that family).
My mother had experiences that she had attributed to being drugged unwittingly (disappearing for days with no memory, waking up naked in her apartment
confused). This was during the 60's in Watts, where she was young and living alone without contact with any family.... the kind of target that was
often chosen in things like MKUltra.
But this researcher was particularly interested in the angle that experiments done at that time (50's, 60's) on some GI's had them actually
following up on and continuing research on their children and grandchildren. (perhaps researching possible genetic affects passed on because of
certain experiments?) His hypothesis was the same as you have posed here- that false memories of alien abduction were implanted in order to discredit
the "abductees" and keep anyone from looking further into what had happened to them.
I no longer find this that unbelievable. Also an experience with a couple of a people who seemed to be government agents (along the Men in Black"
type thing) made me suspicious as well.
I cannot say I firmly believe it, but I can say I see it as highly possible.
