Some “UFO Abductions” Were Simulated Psychological Warfare Experiments, Says Dr. Jacques Vallée

In Brief

  • The Facts:
    • In his book, "Forbidden Science 4," Dr. Jacques Vallée explains how he came in possession documents showing that forced "UFO abductions" were conducted by the CIA as psychological warfare experiments.

    • This is one tiny piece of what seems to be an infinitely large puzzle regarding this phenomenon.

  • Reflect On:

    What type of technology would the CIA have to have in order to pull something like this off?

Dr. Jacques Valée is an academic who holds a masters degree in astrophysics and a Ph.D., in computer science. He co-developed the first computerized map of Mars for NASA in 1963. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris, and he subsequently became a close associate of J. Allen Hynek, who headed the US Air Force’s investigation into the UFO phenomenon, known as Project Blue Book.

Valée is one of the foremost researchers of the UFO phenomenon. He as been investigating it for decades. With governments around the world now acknowledging the phenomenon after years of ridicule, it would be encouraging for them to work with researchers like Valée. This, unfortunately, does not happen.

In one of his latest books, Forbidden Science 4he shares a record of his private study into unexplained phenomenon between 1990 and the end of the millennium, during which he was traveling around the world pursuing his professional work as a high-technology investor. It’s a bit of a diary, documenting his experiences and encounters/meetings as he tries to examine and explore the phenomenon.

In an entry dated Thursday 26 March 1992, Vallée writes:

“I have secured a document confirming that the CIA simulated UFO abductions in Latin America (Brazil and Argentina) as psychological warfare experiments.”

If this is true, it’s quite concerning. Reading this line from his book triggered me back to earlier in his book when he mentions one of many conversations he’s had with Ron Blackburn, a former Colonel in the US Air Force.

On Monday 16 April 1990, Valeé writes:

“Over lunch again with Colonel Ron Blackburn (Air Force) at the Gatehouse in Palo Alto he revealed that the “Secret Onion” group started in 1985 in the classified tank located in his basement at the Lockheed Skunk Works. Colonel John Alexander had brought him a list of the people in the inner circle. They divided the world into layers of concentric trust and ability. John introduced Blackburn to Ed Dames. Blackburn and I have firmed up our plants to travel to New Mexico on May 4th, up the high mesa – supposedly to meet some Aliens.”

It’s interesting to note that Colonel John Alexander writes about Blackburn in his book, “UFOs, myths, conspiracies and realities.” The stories from Vallée’s book and Alexander’s book correlate.

“Among the people I met was Dr. Ron Blackburn, a retired U.S. Air Force lieutenant colonel who was then working at the Lockheed Skunk Works in Burbank. It was Blackburn who first asked me if I had ever heard of the infamous Area 51. In the early 1980s, this facility was still not widely known inside the military, let alone the general public, even though it had been functional for decades…Among areas of common interest between Blackburn and me were UFOs. We discussed many possibilities related to who might be in charge of UFO research. We both thought that there was some organization, probably within the U.S. Air Force, which had the responsibility. But we acknowledged that whoever had the ball, there must be an interagency effort as well. Our assumption was that somebody must be in charge, and we were well aware of all the prevailing stories and rumours. Roswell, we assumed, was a real UFO event.”

Fast forward to Friday, May 4th, 1990, Valle writes the following about Blackburn:

“I’m convinced the government is working on UFOs,” he told me. “What are the chances some witnesses are being fooled by special effects developed by psychological warfare?” I countered. Thinking of cases like Bentwaters in the UK or Cergy-Pontoise in France. “They’re pretty good,” he admitted. “Suppose you shine a week infrared laser into people’s eyes; it won’t hurt them but may induce a hallucinatory state. Experiments have been done where you send a microwave beam through someone’s brain; you pick up the transmitted energy pattern. You can influence people this way, even make them hear things. Holograms have been used too,”

It’s interesting to note the conversation Vallée had with Blackburn in 1990, and then in 1992 writes that he had received a document that the CIA had been involved with staging UFO (alien abductions) on innocent humans. Combine this information with Blackburn mentioning that holograms have been used, and technology exists to produce “hallucinatory” states, and it’s interesting to think about.

This is just one of many examples and pieces of evidence many researchers in the field point to suggesting that there are staged abductions happening for reasons unknown, and that it’s continuing today. 

Richard Doty is also mentioned multiple times in Valle’s book. He is a retired Air Force Special investigations officer (AFSIO), and his job was to spread disinformation about the UFO subject during his time with the Air Force. Spreading disinformation about the reality of UFOs is no secret, and in Doty’s case, he admitted to infiltrating UFO circles along with his colleagues to feed ufologists and journalists lies and half truths so that they would never understand any real truth.

Is this happening today? Could it be? As far as relying on governments and “official” sources for information about the UFO phenomenon, is there a chance that we will be fed misinformation? Will censorship come to those who share information about UFOs that contradict what governments tell us? We’ve seen the same thing with COVID, geopolitics, like the war on “terror” for example and much more.

Below is a decades old clip of Vallée having a discussion with consciousness researcher Jeffrey Mishlove. In it, Vallée brings up multiple aspects of the phenomenon that researchers have been uncovering over the years, including the idea of deception towards the end of the clip.

The thoughts expressed in this article is simply one piece of what seems to be millions of pieces to the UFO phenomenon. Others include encounters that may indeed be real, not staged, forced abductions, animal mutilations, friendly and benevolent experiences and beings that may be concerned about us and our planet. Every possible scenario you can imagine is embedded into the lore of the phenomenon, which makes it impossible to say with certainty what’s happening, or could be happening. One thing is for certain, something is indeed happening.

This article represents 0.01 percent of everything the phenomenon encompases. It truly leaves no aspect of humanity untouched.

 In 2021 Vallée made an appearance on the Joe Rogan show to discuss the UFO phenomenon. In it, he commented on the popularity that’s growing within the mainstream, particularly from high ranking ex-government employees. He commented on what he perceived to be a threat narrative being portrayed within the mainstream,

“We have to stop reacting to intrusions by UFOs as a threat, I mean that’s the whole thing behind this new task force, as much as I respect, you know, the task force, my colleagues and I want to cooperate with them to the extent that we can bring information or resources to what they do. But there is more, this is not, should not be looked at specifically as a threat…With the phenomenon that we observe if they wanted to blow up those F18s they would do it. Obviously that’s not what it’s all about, and this idea of just labelling it all as a threat because it’s unknown, that’s the wrong idea.”

 These are the thoughts of Vallée after a lifelong investigation into the phenomenon. What are yours? What type of technology would agencies like the CIA have to possess in order to pull something like this off?
