Cooper was a liar and a fraud. I did meet him. He falsely accused (see his book Behold a Pale Horse) me, Budd Hopkins and Bruce Maccabee of being CIA
agents. I have indeed worked for the government.. two weeks delivering mail in Linden, NJ as a college sophomore at Xmas Time in 1952.
That is it. He claimed he had been a briefing officer for the Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet, but couldn't pick out his name from a list I
gave him. He was only an E-2 and had no college background and had been a hydraulics mechanic in the USAF before joining the navy.Hardly background
for a Briefing officer He was a zealot who provided no evidence but left it up to his audiences. I have written a paper about him.He was indeed
Now as to myself. I have been self employed since 1970 so have no government connection. Westinghouse Astrnuclear Lab where I worked when I started
speaking out and doing media stuff and lectures to both college and professional groups back in the late 1960s, told me that I could say what I
pleased,where I pleased on my time; I could identify myself as a nuclear Physicist employed by Westinghouse, and I had to start with a disclaimer
that the opinions that followed were mine and not the company's. They even paid my way to talk to the American Nuclear Society Chapter at Los Alamos
and the IEEE chapter in Wilmington, DE.I of course had a Q clearance at the time. Many management people had heard my lectures to various technical
Cooper totally misquoted me (probably because hedidn't understand ) about compact nuclear systems. The nuclear rocket was cooled by liqguid hydrogen
which was the propellant. The reactors were several feet in dimater and roughly 5 feet long.
The Aircraft nuclear propulsion systems I worked on for GE 1956-1959 were several feet in dimater, and a few feet long had nothing to do with hydrogen
production or utilization other than that the moderators were typically Zirconium or Yttrium hydride. The coolant was air. They were direct cycle
systems producing about 300-400 Megawatts. The nuclear fission rockets operated at 1000-4000 megawatts but were only needed for a short time..hours.
The Aircraft nuclear propulsion systems with thri air colleged jet engines were to operate for thousands of hours. So what he wrote was total BS.
He also repeated baloney about Forrestal whose friends were very worried about his mental health. There is no indication at all that his knowledge
about aliens had anything to do with his death. I consider him a war casualty..extraordinarily productive during the war getting ships built and being
attacked by the Army, Navy and Air Force all seeking huge budgets after the war.when he was the first Secretary of Defense, I should add that,of
course,the Forrestal Archives at Princeton, the Truman, Eisenhower ,and Kennedy Libraries, the Library of Congress Manuscript division and many many
more were amongst the 20 document archives I have visited.Cooper visited none. There is of course a lot of info about Majestic 12 at my website
www.stanfriedman.com . A new item has just become available a video shown this summer on Canadian TV called "Do You Believe in MAJIC?" I take on
such skeptics as Karl Pflock. It is $20. from me at POB 958, Houlton, ME 04730-0958.
