Hoover’s FBI X Files revealed
ANYONE who ever doubted the existence of the FBI’s so-called X Files should take a look at the bureau’s new online electronic reading room, writes Stuart Winter.
A 63-year-old memo sent to the legendary FBI director J Edgar Hoover has become one the most read files on the internet with its report of flying saucers and 3ft tall aliens.
The single page note tells a story as intriguing and far-fetched as anything investigated by Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully in the popular television sci-fi drama and has been viewed a million times.
The report added: “Each body was bandaged in a manner similar to the blackout suits used by speed fliers and test pilots.”
A high-powered radar system was blamed for bringing down the saucers in a remote area of desert after interfering with the UFOs’ controlling mechanisms.

The neatly-typed memo, dated March 22, 1950, was sent by FBI field office chief Guy Hottel.
However, to add to conspiracy theorists’ suspicions of government attempts to cover up visits by extra terrestrials, the informant’s name has been redacted in black ink.
The memo, first made public in the late Seventies, appears not to be linked to the 1947 Roswell case when US Air Force officials said they recovered a UFO in the New Mexico desert, only to say later it was a research balloon.
The practice of FBI agents investigating UFO sightings on Hoover’s orders ended in July 1950.
The electronic FBI reading room, the Vault, holds about 6,700 items.
FEMA Communication Takeover Test Scheduled for November 9
FEMA, the FCC, and Homeland Security plan to commandeer the airwaves next month. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) will be tested at 1 PM EST on November 9. EAS alerts are transmitted over radio and television broadcast stations, cable television and other media services.
Local and state EAS components are tested weekly and monthly, but this will be the first national test of the system. It is significant that FEMA will conduct the mandatory test.
FEMA was created by executive fiat. EO 12148 was signed into law by a stroke of Jimmy Carter’s pen on July 20, 1979. FEMA is described as a federal agency designed to coordinate government response to natural disasters that overwhelm the resources of local and state authorities.
In fact, the federal agency was established as part of a martial law mechanism.

Under Reagan, FEMA was headed by Louis O. Giuffrida, the former national guard general who contributed to the Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, two sub programs under REX 84, a plan to establish concentration camps in America. Operation Cable Splicer is described as “the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government.” For more information on these martial law programs, see Mary Louise, Stalag 17, American Style Plans For Civilian Internment (& Worst).
Giuffrida, a counterinsurgency enthusiast, focused the agency’s resources on the “civil disturbance” aspect of its charter and worked to undermine Posse Comitatus. In 1982, Reagan formally militarized FEMA with National Security Decision Directive (NSDD 26). The result was a series of national training exercises led by the military. Under REX 82, civilian police from around the country received what FEMA euphemistically referred to as “military police methods” for quelling domestic political unrest.
Under Reagan, with Giuffrida at the helm, FEMA mutated “civil defense planning into a military/police version of civil society,” a plan on a collision course with Posse Comitatus.
“Hidden behind FEMA’s benevolent face as the body whose chief responsibility is disaster relief, another FEMA exists,” Ritt Goldstein wrote in 2002, referring to Bush’s effort to turn the agency into a counter-terrorism and “enemy combatant” detention outfit under the newly established Department of Homeland Security.
“At present, the final contents and disposition of the Reagan security initiatives, part of a national crisis plan, remains beyond public knowledge,” Goldstein writes. “But given the ‘War On Terror’s’ scope, even if a formal crisis is not declared, speculation exists that a de facto drift into an effective deployment of FEMA’s crisis powers could occur.”
Next month’s EAS test represents the public notification aspect of that national crisis plan. It is significant that EAS will be tested nationally. Natural disasters are usually regional affairs and do not require a nationwide response. The new national EAS system is designed for a more significant event that conforms to the implementation of martial law as envisioned under Garden Plot and Cable Splicer, a plan that was nearly revealed when Representative Jack Brooks of Texas grilled Oliver North during the Iran-Contra hearings in 1987 (see the video above).
