USE OF THE ABJECT INDIVIDUAL
Dan T. Smith, an individual encouraged by CIA employee Ron Pandolfi to believe he is important to intelligence agency strategy, typifies in his many imbalanced emails about the "soul and the philosophical monad" (21) the deliberate use of marginal, otherwise "abject" individuals to provide a natural diversion from actual covert research and intelligence gathering.
Smith has stated, as regards alleged KGB attempts to destabilize US science, that "our direct knowledge simply does not conform to the rumors of governmental intrigue that you choose to disseminate" (7/9/00)and has also recently given an interview to the online version of PARANOIA magazine during which he describes elaborate U.S. intelligence agency strategy involving an "Aviary" and "MJ-12" motif. The following statements are taken directly from an email posted by Dan T. Smith to an extensive CC list on April 12,2000:
"My best guess is that my personal eschaton gambit has been used as a public reference point by the 'phenomenology network' to prime the pump of unconventional collections(uCC's). Ron's public (22) association with far out stuff opens him up to other off-the-wall, back-channel material that might be of interest to a serious phenomenology effort.
"A phenomenology network has got to keep an eye on all possibilities. It cannot allow itself to become theory driven like mainstream science. Eschatology and immaterialism gives the phenom boys some practice with stretching their minds to the limits of rationality, and maybe beyond. This keeps them on their toes, and on the lookout for things that would otherwise fall between the cracks of conventional collection.
"(On a more practical note, since the uCC mandate countenances domestic collections, it is useful for the agency to keep that door open as a loophole in the legislated restrictions on CC's.)
"There were three substantive influences from my 'handler':
1. A greater credibility afforded to the existence of something like MJ12.
2. The 'sunfish' remark. (23)
3. The partial opening of a political channel.
"The second & third items are most sensitive. They are in potential violation of the prime directive, and so are self-limiting. The result is a glass ceiling over the Aquarium. The aquarium/eschaton can only be given a minimal external nudge. Beyond that, everything has to be spontaneous. Having hit that rather low ceiling, the aquarium is on its own.
"The only way to break through is phenomenally or conceptually. The conceptual breakthough would be the preferred route, as it would minimize confusion. The biggest conceptual challenge is to find an immaterial alternative to astronomy. So far all I have is the feeling that quantum-string cosmology is a big step in this direction. One needs mainly to find a solid mind link to the celestial/cosmological dimension of the developing M-theory. S-P has some promising ideas in this direction, we just need some more metaphysical juice. Such a link would shed new light on the Anthropic problem and the necessary mechanism behind it. After that it is a cakewalk to the eschaton and beyond. Wisely, MJ12 and the visitors play the role of spectator."
Obviously, Smith is a person who-without this "intelligence agency" scenario-would receive very little public attention. Therefore , he can be expected to throw himself into the superficial drama of whatever roles and masques may be suggested in various situations without regard for the more sophisticated artificial consistency of actual covert scenarios.
Smith's rather droll idea of finding an "immaterial alternative" to astronomy is in obvious conflict with his role-playing identification of the MJ-12 characters as "visitors" and "spectators". If astronomy is actually immaterial, as Smith suggests, wherefrom are these "spectators" from outer space except from the conceptually-orbiting strategic office of CIA "phenom boy" Ron Pandolfi?
In this context, it could be argued that William Moore-- the "Majestic" personality who by his own admission invented the so-called "Aviary" nicknames "Falcon" and "Sparrow" for his CIA contacts in 1980 during a telephone conversation "secret name" charade (24) with partner Jaime Shandera-- also fits this "abject except when role-playing" profile. Yet Moore's confession of intelligence agency involvement published in the MUFON JOURNAL Nos. 259 & 260 **(November & December 1989 ) was a rational, and not a self-inflated gesture. He has also expressed the realization that the "Majestic Documents" as "covertly" released to himself and Shandera, are probably sophisticated disinformation. In Part II of his MUFON paper on these issues, Moore comments:
"Disinformation is a strange and bizarre game. Those who play it are completely aware that an operation's success is dependent upon dropping information upon a target, or "mark", in such a way that the person will accept it as truth and will repeat, and even defend it to others as if it were true. Once this has been accomplished, the work of the counterintelligence specialists is complete. They can simply withdraw in the confidence that the dirty work of spreading their poisonous seeds will be done by others...Every time one of you repeats an unverified or unsubstantiated bit of evidence without qualifying it as such, you are contributing to that process, and every time you do it, somebody in a need-to-know position sits back and has a horse laugh at your expense." (25)
In contrast, Dan T. Smith seems unaware of his abject role in the intelligence game, as he continues to indulge in voluminous email correspondence and fringe press interviews about covert "Aviary" and/or U.S. psy-op agents with "bird" nicknames while continuing at the same time to await a "Messiah" (perhaps himself) who will guide humanity through the final cataclysm of the "Eschaton". Note once again here that these "Aviary" names were originally invented off-the-cuff in 1980 by two journalist/investigators trying to evade possible telephone surveillance. The subsequent adoption of these very names by persons claiming there is an actual CIA "Aviary" is a lot like finding that your current email flame Jane/John Doe-whom you have called "lovey-dovey" just for fun-actually seems to be named Lovey C. Dove and denies any romantic relationship and/or use of the name Jane/John Doe, calling you a disturbed person who is making fun of his/her Baptismal name "Lovey C. Dove" into the Church in 1954 at age nine days. Lovey C. Dove will also have the Church certificate to prove that you simply are a stalker who combs the phone listings for unusual names.
Cute, eh? But down this type of virtual mental corridor lies an immaterial astronomy and freeze of mental function. Follow the details given by the unfortunate Wm. Moore and D.T. Smith at your own peril. For the labels and code names of actual covert projects are changed frequently to prevent detection. If an actual classified document said "Majestic" in 1947, similar classified documents are not designated by the term "Majestic" in the year 2000. Yet certain strategic concepts do remain. For example: "Run it up the pole and see who salutes it."
Is the control of the press on ufos and unexplained phenomena advocated in the Conclusions section, Part III-P, page 7 of the MJ-12 briefing entitled "Government Policy of Control and Denial" actually, therefore, the actual data-control technique of choice used by U.S. intelligence agencies? Or is Dan T. Smith correct when he mentions the strategy of "unconventional collections?"
These agencies seem to "use" the foibles of individuals such as Smith and Moore for diversion and surveillance but have not been observed exerting actual censorship upon the editors of civilian magazines and newspapers. There is no discernable "anomalies blacklist". It seems to be just the opposite. Any and all "outer space" communications are encouraged in order to gather information on maverick thinkers and interest groups. According to former Strategic Air Command personnel, military officers and enlisted persons were asked not to speak of "unexplained" objects on the SAC radar and those pilots who did speak freely of their encounters with unexplained aerial phenomena were lectured or disciplined. (26) But this is not unusual in the military when defense must be maintained. It has a personal impact on the military ufo contactees but is part of a larger strategy. In this context, rational observation assumes a covert investigation project begun under President Roosevelt when the "foo fighters" were first observed accompanying military aircraft during World War II.
In fact, might the paragraph on "control of publications" in the "Majestic" documents betray authorship by an individual or individuals more familiar with governments (Socialist or Royalist) wherein such a direct censorship policy might be more commonly possible? OR, and this is of interest because Smith claims to have been attracted to his philosophical counter-intelligence pursuits by a (female) voice called "Sophia" (wisdom) he began to perceive sometime in the late 1980's, (27) are both Smith and the unknown author(s) of the Majestic hoax actually interdimensional disinformation channels puppeted by hyper-intelligent/ diabolic "remote control"? Are these the impersonations and machinations of the archetypal Lord Ahriman, prince of darkness?
If so, might this confusion (recall that Smith cites chaos theory in his "confession" email) be generated by a force of paranormal "evil" not under the control of any earthly government at all? Perhaps the CIA hitch onto Dan T. Smith by Pentagon employee Ron Pandolfi may simply be the old-fashioned intelligence ploy of somehow getting aboard the run away vehicle simply to see in which direction the wonderland race is now pointing. If this reporter were a strategist for U.S. intelligence, and front office U.S. intelligence had not initiated the MAJESTIC TWLEVE documents, I would advise this "accompanying angel" surveillance. For one sure way for an enemy to destroy a target country or interest group is to create internal conflict. Do not confront the dupes.
