reply to post by Kandinsky
Thanks for that reply. Bear with me here, it is difficult to be clear when dealing with such complex material so correct me if I missed something.
I'm still not completely convinced about motive. I think you might be able to shed some light on some of this for me.
As someone who tries to understand many conspiracy theories by looking at disinformation/deception, the Bennewitz case is one I'm familiar with. In
this case, motive for the disinformation looks a bit clearer. Bennewitz probably really was observing something (not necessarily aliens) that the
military wanted kept quiet. AFOSI deliberately pumped Bennewitz full of disinformation via Moore and Doty who were already their agents in the UFO
community. So the motive for Moore and Doty seems to be partly to confuse Bennewitz.
Obviously, the far fetched story is partly to cover up secret military projects - which often seems to be the motive for intelligence involvement if
UFOlogy. The far-fetched version of the UFO myth being promoted in the UFO scene also means the MSM and public take the subject with a pinch of salt
which lessens the potential for NATO enemies to use espionage to create panic or distrust in the government by manipulating the scene.
Now for where I may differ from you slightly. I think that Doty/Moore may have been given some creative license but they still had the job of
manipulating the scene to keep it less credible (on myth?) for the reasons above. I also think that if they were only acting as private citizens and
created the MJ-12 documents themselves, then Doty would have been in hot water for using stationary and falsifying government documents, as he was an
Air Force Sargeant (although I think he was questioned by the FBI).
Furthermore, surely Doty's strange behaviour, such as offers of material like videos that never appeared, would be better explained if he was still
acting to promote the myth and disrupt the scene on behalf of the authorities rather than personal profit. If Doty was trying to profit from the
scene then this behaviour is harder to explain.
Don't get me wrong, I know some of the MJ-12 errors like the distance from Roswell to the crash site (75miles) seem to have originated with Berlitz
and Moore's Roswell Incident. What I'm trying to say is, weren't they still operating on behalf of higher ups? Or alternatively, did Moore drop Doty
in the # by faking the documents himself then posting them from Albuquerque so it appeared to be Doty or AFOSI? Or something else?
Hopefully that makes sense to you, Kandinsky. Sorry to any members who read it and it means nothing but....
I started on my journey into UFOs because I have seen stuff and wanted answers. I firmly believe there is something unexplained here. I didn't like
keeping silent so as not to effect my job or other aspects of my life and was irritated by what I believed was a simple cover up. Simple? If I'd
known I'm not sure I would have bothered. I'm not a quitter but this thing is massive and could easily send you the wrong way....
