NO NEWSPAPER has yet secured the
truth behind the operation known as
ALTERNATIVE 3. Investigations by journalists have been blocked by
governments on both sides of the Iron Curtain. American and Russia are
ruthlessly obsessed with guarding their shared secret and this
obsession, as we can now prove, has made them partners in murder.
However, despite this intensive security, fragments
of information have
been made public. Often they are released inadvertently by experts who
do not appreciate their sinister significance and these fragments, in
isolation, mean little. But when jigsawed together they form a definite
pattern, a pattern which appears to emphasize the enormity of this
conspiracy of silence.
On May 3, 1977, the Daily Mirror published this story:
Carter has joined the ranks of UFO spotters. He
sent in two written reports stating he had seen a flying saucer
when he was the Governor of Georgia.
has shrugged off the incident since then, perhaps
fearing that electors might be wary of a flying saucer freak.
But he was reported
as saying after the "sighting"; "I don't laugh
at people any more when they say they've seen UFOs because I've
seen one myself."
his UFO like this: "Luminous, not solid, at first
bluish, then reddish...it seemed to move towards us from a
distance, stopped, then moved partially away."

Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena.

cautious. He admitted he had seen a light in the sky but
declined to call it a UFO.
"I think it was a light beckoning me to run
California primary election."
Why this change in Carter's attitude?
Because, by then, he had been
briefed on Alternative 3?
A 1966 Gallup Poll showed that five million
Americans including several
highly experienced airline pilots claimed to have seen Flying Saucers.
Fighter pilot Thomas Mantell has already died while chasing one over
Kentucky his F.51 aircraft having disintegrated in the violent wash of
his quarry's engines.
The U.S. Air Force, reluctantly bowing to
mounting pressure, asked Dr.
Edward Uhler Condon, a professor of astrophysics, to head an
investigation team at Colorado University.
Condon's budget was $500,000. Shortly
before his report appeared in
1968, this story appeared in the London Evening Standard:
st dy is making headlines, but for all the
reasons. It is losing some of its outstanding members, under
circumstances which are mysterious to say the least. Sinister
rumors are circulating...at least four key people have vanished
from the Condon team without offering a satisfactory reason for
story behind the strange events in Colorado is hard
to decipher. But a clue, at last may be found in the recent
statements of Dr. James McDonald, the senior physicist at the
Institute of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Arizona
and widely respected in his field.
In a wary, But ominous, telephone conversation this week, Dr.
McDonald told me that he is "most distressed."
Condon's 1,485-page report denied the existence of Flying Saucers
and a panel of the American National Academy of Sciences endorsed
the conclusion that "further extensive study probably cannot be
But, curiously, Condon's joint principal
investigator, Dr. David
Saunders, had not contributed a word to that report. And on January 11,
1969, the Daily Telegraph quoted Dr. Saunders as saying of the report:
"It is inconceivable
that it can be anything but a cold stew. No
matter how long it is, what it includes, how it is said, or what
it recommends, it will lack the essential element of credibility."
Already there were wide spread suspicions that
the Condon investigation
had been part of an official coverup, that the government knew the truth
but was determined to keep it from the public. We now know that those
suspicions were accurate. And that the secrecy was all because of
Only a few months after Dr. Saunders made
his "cold stew" statement a
journalist with the Columbus (Ohio) Dispatch embarrassed the National
Aeronautics and Space Agency by photographing a strange craft looking
exactly like a Flying Saucer-at the White Sands missile range in New

section of the range where most experimental vehicles were eventually
But the Martin Marietta company
of Denver, where it was built,
acknowledged designing several models, some with ten and twelve engines.
And a NASA official, faced with this information, said:
"Actually the engineers used to call it 'The Flying Saucer.' "
That confirmed a statement made by Dr. Garry
Henderson, a leading space
"All our astronauts
have seen these objects but have been ordered
not to discuss their findings with anyone."
Otto Binder was a member of
the NASA space team. He has stated that
NASA "killed" significant segments of conversation between Mission
Control and Apollo 11, the spacecraft which took Buzz Aldrin and Neil
Armstrong to the Moon and that those segments were deleted from the
with their own VHF receiving facilities that by
passed NASA broadcast outlets claim there was a portion of Earth
Moon dialogue that was quickly cut off by the NASA monitoring
"It was presumably
when the two moon walkers, Aldrin and
Armstrong, were making the round some distance from the LEM that
Armstrong clutched Aldrin's arm excitedly and exclaimed 'What was
it? What the hell was it? That's all I want to know.' "
Then, according to Binder, there was this exchange:
MISSION CONTROL: What's there?...malfunction(garble)...Mission
calling Apollo 11...
APOLLO 11: These babies were huge, sir...enormous..Oh,
God you wouldn't
believe it!...I'm telling you there are other space-craft
out there...lined up on the far side of the crater
edge...they're on the Moon watching us...
NASA, understandably, has never confirmed Binder's
story but Buzz Aldrin
was soon complaining bitterly about the Agency having used him as a
And two years after his Moon mission, following
reported bouts of heavy
drinking, he was admitted to hospital with "emotional depression."
"Traveling salesman"...that's an add choice
of words, isn't it? What,
in Aldrin's view, were the NASA authorities trying to sell? And to
whom? Could it be that they were using him, and others like him, to
sell their official version of the truth to ordinary people right across

maximum publicity, to justify the billions being poured into space

All men who have travelled to the Moon have given
indications of knowing
about Alternative 3 and of the reasons which precipitated it.
In May, 1972, James Irwin, officially the sixth man
to walk on the Moon,
resigned to become a Baptist missionary. And he said then:
made me a deeper religious person and more keenly
aware of the fragile nature of our planet."
Edgar Mitchell, who landed on the Moon with
the Apollo 14 mission in
February, 1971, also resigned in May, 1972 to devote himself to
parapsychology. Later, at the headquarters of his Institute for noetic
Sciences near San Francisco, he described looking at this world from the
into a very deep pathos, a kind of
incredibly beautiful planet that was Earth.. a place no bigger
than my thumb was my home.. a blue and white jewel against a
velvet black sky...was being killed off."
And on March 23, 1974, he was quoted in the Daily
Express as saying that
society had only three ways in which to go and that the third was "the
most viable but most difficult alternative."
Another of the Apollo Moon walkers, Bob
Grodin, was equally specific
when interviewed by a Sceptre Television reporter on June 20, 1977;
"You think they
need all that crap down in Florida just to put two
guys up there on a...on a bicycle? The hell thy do! You know
why they need us? So they've got a P.R. story for all that
hardware they've been firing into space. We're nothing, man!
On July 11, 1977, the Los Angeles
Times came near to the heart of the
matter-nearer than any other newspaper when it published a remarkable
interview with Dr. Gerard O'Neill.
Dr. O'Neill is a Princeton professor
who served, during a 1976
sabbatical, as Professor of Aerospace at the Massachusetts Institute of
Technology and who gets nearly $500,000 each year in research grants
from NASA. Here is a section from that article:
The United Nations,
he says, has conservatively estimated that the
world's population, now more than 4 billion people, will grow to
about 6.5 billion by the 2000. Today, he adds, about 30% of the
world's population is in developed nations. But, because most of
the projected population growth will occur in underdeveloped
countries, that will drop to 22% by the end of the century. The
world of 2000 will be poorer and hungrier than the world today, he
Dr. O'Neill also explained the problems caused by
the earth's 4,000 mile
atmospheric layer but presumably because the article was comparatively
short one he was not quoted on the additional threat posed by the
notorious "greenhouse" syndrome.
His solution? He called it Island 3.
And he added: "There's no debate
about the technology involved in doing it. That's been confirmed by
NASA's top people."
But Dr. O'Neill, a family man
with three children who like to fly
sailplanes in his spare time, did not realize that he was slightly off
target. He was right, of course, about the technology.
But he knew nothing of the political ramifications
and he would have
been astounded to learn that NASA was feeding his research to the
Even eminent political specialists, as respected
in their sphere as Dr.
O'Neill is in his own, have been puzzled by an undercurrent they have
detected in East West relationships.
Professor G. Gordon Broadbent, director
of the independently financed
Institute of Political Studies in London and author of a major study of
U.S. Soviet diplomacy since the 1950s, emphasized that fact on June 20,
1977, when he was interviewed on Sceptre Television:
"On the broader
issue of Soviet U.S. relations, I must admit there
is an element of mystery which troubles many people in my field."
He added: "What we're suggesting is that, at
the very highest levels of
East West diplomacy, there has been operating a factor of
which we know nothing. Now it could just be-and I stress the
word 'could' that this unknown factor is some kind of massive
but covert operation in space. But as for the reasons behind
it...we are not in the business of speculation."
Washington's acute discomfort over O'Neill's revelations
through the Los
Angeles Times can be assessed by the urgency with which a "suppression"
Bill was rushed to the Statute Book.
On July 27, 1977 only sixteen
days after publication of the O'Neill
interview columnist Jeremy Campbell reported in the London Evening
Standard that the Bill would become law that September. He wrote:
the publishing of an official report
permission, arguing that this obstructs the Government's control
of its own information. That was precisely the charge brought
against Daniel Ellsberg for giving the Pentagon papers to the New
of all, the Bill would make it a crime
present of former civil servant to tell the Press of Government
wrong doing or pass on any news based on information "submitted to
the Government in private."
Campbell pointed out that this final clause "has
given serious pain to
guardians of American Press freedom because it creates a brand new
crime." Particularly as there was provision in the Bill for offending
journalists to be sent to prison for up to six years.
We subsequently discovered that a man called Harman
Leonard Harman read
that item in the newspaper and that later, in a certain television
executives' dining room, he expressed regret that a similar Law had not
been passed years earlier by the British government.
He was eating treacle tart with custard at
the time and he reflected
wistfully that he could then have insisted on such a Law being obeyed.
That, when it came to Alternative 3, would have saved him from a great
deal of trouble...
He had chosen treacle tart, not
because he particularly liked it, but
because it was 2p(ence) cheaper than the chocolate sponge. That was
typical of Harman.
He was one of the people, as you may have learned
already through the
Press, who tried to interfere with the publication of this book. We
will later be presenting some of the letters received by us from him and
his lawyers together with the replies from our legal advisers.
We decided to print these letters in
order to give you a thorough
insight into our investigation for it is important to stress that we,
like Professor Broadbent, are not in the "business of speculation."
We are interested only in the facts.
And it is intriguing to note the pattern of facts
relating to astronauts
who have been on Moon missions and who have therefore been exposed to
some of the surprises presented by Alternative 3.
A number, undermined by the strain of being
party to such a horrendous
secret, suffered nervous or mental collapses. A high percentage sought
sanctuary in excessive drinking or in extramarital affairs which
destroyed what had been secure and successful marriages.
Yet these were men originally picked
from many thousands precisely
because of their stability. Their training and experience, intelligence
and physical fitness all these, of course, were prime considerations in
their selection. But the supremely important quality was their balanced
It would need something stupendous,
something almost unimaginable to
most people, to flip such men into dramatic personality changes. That
something, we have now established, was Alternative 3 and, perhaps more
particularly, the night marish obscenities involved in the development
and perfection of Alternative 3.
We are not suggesting that the President of
the United States has had
personal knowledge of the terror and clinical cruelties which have been
an integral part of the Operation, for that would make him directly
responsible for murders and barbarous mutilations.
We are convinced, in fact, that this is not
the case. The President and
the Russian leader, together with their immediate subordinates, have
been concerned only with broad sweep of policy.
They have acted in unison to ensure
what they consider to be the best
possible future for mankind. And the day to day details have been
delegated to high level professionals.
These professionals, we have now
established, have been classifying
people selected for the Alternative 3 operation into two categories:
those who are
picked as individuals and those who merely form part
of a "batch consignment."
There have been several "batch
consignments" and it is the treatment
meted out to most of these men and women which provides the greatest
cause for outrage.
No matter how desperate the circumstances
may be-and we reluctantly
recognize that they are extremely desperate no humane society could
tolerate what has been done to the innocent and the gullible.
That view, fortunately, was taken by one man who
was recruited into the
Alternative 3 team three years ago. He was, at first, highly
enthusiastic and completely dedicated to the Operation. However, he
became revolted by some of the atrocities involved. He did not consider
that, even in the prevailing circumstances, they could be
Three days after the transmission
of that sensational television
documentary, his conscience finally goaded him into action. He knew the
appalling risk he was taking, for he was aware of what had happened to
others who had betrayed the secrets of Alternative 3, but he made
telephone contact with television reporter Colin Benson and offered to
provide Benson with evidence of the most astounding nature.
He was calling, he said, from abroad
but he was prepared to travel to
London. They met two days later. And he then explained to Benson that
copies of most orders and memoranda, together with transcripts prepared
from tapes of Policy Committee meetings, were filed in triplicate in
Washington, Moscow and Geneva where Alternative 3 had its operational
The system had been instituted to ensure there
was no misunderstanding
between the principal partners. He occasionally had access to some of
that material although it was often weeks or even months old before he
saw it and he was willing to supply what he could to Benson. He wanted
no money. He merely wanted to alert the public, to help stop the mass
Benson's immediate reaction, after he
had assessed the value of this
offer, was that Sceptre should mount a follow up programme one which
would expose the horrors of Alternative 3 in far greater depth.
He argued bitterly with his superiors at Sceptre
but they were adamant.
The company was already in serious trouble with the government and there
was some doubt about whether its licence would be renewed. They refused
to consider the possibility of doing another programme. They had
officially disclaimed the Alternative 3 documentary as a hoax and that
was where the matter had to rest.
Anyway, they pointed out, this character who'd come
forward was probably
a nut...If you saw the documentary, you will probably realize that
Benson is a stubborn man. His friends say he is pig obstinate. They
also say he is a first class investigative journalist.
He was angry about this attempt to suppress the truth
and that is why he
agreed to co-operate in the preparation of this book. That co-operation
has been invaluable.
Through Benson we met the telephone
caller who we now refer to as
Trojan. And that meeting resulted in our acquiring documents, which we
will be presenting, including transcripts of tapes made at the most
secret rendezvous in the world, thirty five fathoms beneath the ice cap
of the Arctic.
For obvious reasons, we cannot reveal
the identity of Trojan. Nor can
we give any hint about his function or status in the Operation.
We are completely satisfied, however, that his credentials
and that, in breaking his oath of silence, he is prompted by the most
honourable of motives.
He stands in relation to the Alternative 3 conspiracy
in much the same
position as the anonymous informant "Deep Throat" occupied in the
Watergate affair.Most of the "batch consignments" have been taken from
the area known as the Bermuda Triangle but numerous other locations have
also been used.
On October 6, 1975, the Daily Telegraph gave prominence

There have been equally strange
reports of animals particularly farm
animals disappearing in large numbers. And occasionally it appears that
aspects of the Alternative 3 operation have been bungled, that attempts
to lift "batch consignments" of humans or of animals have failed.
On July 15, 1977, the Daily Mail
under a "Flying Saucer" headline
carried this story:

macabre mystery. Their search centred on marshy grassland where

John Wyse, head of the four man team, said:

the ponies had been shot but we have found nothing. This incident

These, then, were typical of the
threads, which inspired the original
television investigation. It needed one person, however, to show how
they could be embroidered into a clear picture.
Without the specialist guidance of that
person the Sceptre television
documentary could never have been produced-and Trojan would never have
contacted Colin Benson.
And it would have been years, possibly
seven years or even longer,
before ordinary people started to suspect the devastating truth about
this planet on which we live. That person, of course, is the old man...
THEY Realize now that they should have killed the old man.
That would have been the logical
course to protect the secrecy of
Alternative 3. It is curious, really, that they did not agree to his
death on that Thursday in February for, as we have stated, they do use
Of course, it is not called murder
not when it is done jointly by the
governments of America and Russia. It is an Act of Expediency.
Many Acts of Expediency are believed to have been
ordered by the sixteen
men, official representatives of the pentagon and the Kremlin, who
comprise the Policy Committee.
Grotesque and apparently inexplicable slayings in
various parts of the
world in Germany and Japan, Britain and Australia are alleged to have
been sanctioned by them.
We have not been able to substantiate these
suspicions and allegations
so we merely record that an unknown number of people including
distinguished radio astronomer Sir William Ballantine have been executed
because of this astonishing agreement between the super-powers.
Prominent politicians, including two
in Britain, were among those who
tried to prevent the publication of this book. They insisted that it is
not necessary for you, and others like you, to be told the unpalatable
They argue that the events of the future are now
inevitable, that there
is nothing to be gained by prematurely unleashing fear.
We concede that they are sincere in their views but
we maintain that you
ought to know. You have a right to know.
Attemps were also make to neuter
the television programme which first
focused public attention on Alternative 3. Those attemps were partially
successful. And, of course, after the programme was transmitted when
there was that spontaneous explosion of anxiety Septre Television was
forced to issue a formal denial.
It had all been a hoax. That's what they
were told to say. That's what
they did say.
Most people were then only too glad to be reassured.
They wanted to be
convinced that the programme had been devised as a joke, that it was
merely an elaborate piece of escapist entertainment. It was more
comfortable that way.
In fact, the television researchers
did uncover far more disturbing
material than they were allowed to transmit. The censored information is
now in our possession. And, as we have indicated, there was a great deal
that Benson and the rest of the television team did not discover, not
until after there programme had been screened.
