The Real Men in Black
Predominantly reported in the United States, claims have also been made in European countries as well as South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.Many individuals have come forth with information concerning the government's secrecy about UFOs and various government projects which have been kept from the public. Yet, little is known about these mysterious individuals who arrive to intimidate witnesses. Their key goal is to silence witnesses from ever speaking of their UFO or alien encounter.
Physical descriptions tend to differ. While always described as wearing dark suits, most of the time the suits are noted as being wrinkle free. Many are believed to be human. The human MIBs are thought to be types of government agents who respond to claims from military personnel.
They may confiscate any "evidence" that the "contacted might have collected. They seem to have telepathic powers, they are uncannily well informed, and give the impression that they work for the government - although US intelligence agencies have denied all knowledge of them. They are born of the same kind of paranoia that underpins sightings of flying saucers and claims of extraterrestrial abduction. The most common post Roswell stories are victims losing several hours of their lives, oftcll after witnessing a blinding light, and for years afterwards suffering recurring nightmares about being experimented on by aliens.
There are also MIB who dress and act awkwardly. Their body features seem to be a bit off from normal human beings and they exhibit bizarre behavior. Could it be that there is more than one kind of MIB? There are those who believe that these MIB are actually some form of alien life form trying to pass as human.
In 1971 a UFO researcher revealed a US Air Force memorandum apparently written by one Lt Gen Wheless. It warned military personnel to be on the alert for people impersonating air force fixers, describing a persons in a USAF uniform who "approached local police and other citizens who had sighted a UFOs. Apparently, this shadowy figure assembled them and told them that they had not seen what they thought they had seen. Nor should they talk to anyone about their imagined sighting. As would be expected, sightings of Men In Black were documented throughout the Sixties and Seventies by the time of the Vietnam war, nuclear threat and the arms race gradually mutated fear. In an atmosphere dominated by Cold War paranoia, assassinations and Watergate, every conspiracy theory gained validity. One of the most interesting and most detailed descriptions of a Man In Black was given in 1976. Dr Herbert Hopkins, a psychiatrist based in Maine, had no previous link with this field, except that he had been treating a youth who claimed to have been abducted by aliens. As told by Hopkins.
I was alone in the house. The telephone rang and the voice on the other end identified itself as a member of a New Jersey UFO research organization. I agreed that he could talk with me about the abduction case. He said that he would be right over. I walked from the telephone in the hallway to turn on a light and the man was already coming up the stairs. If he was as close as across the street, or even next door, he couldn't have possibly gotten here so soon. "His attire struck me as a little odd. He wore a neatly tailored black suit, black shoes, black socks, and a black tie. He also wore a black Derby. I thought, 'God, this man looks like an undertaker.' "We sat down and I said to myself, 'This character is as bald as an egg.' He didn't have any eyebrows or eyelashes and his skin was a dead white colour. His nose was very small and it came down to just above the upper lip. His lips were ruby red. "He had the appearance of a clothing store dummy. His sump looked as if it had never been worn before. He spoke flawlessly English with no accent, completely neuter, like you would get from a machine that could talk."He was wearing gloves. They looked like grey suede. He 5 brushed his lips with the glove, and when he put his hand downy the back of his glove was bright red. I said to myself; 'This guy is wearing lipstick.' Then I could see that his mouth was perfectly straight. He did not have what we call lips, so the lipstick was there as some sort of decoy. "He could apparently read my mind. He told me I had two coins in my left pocket, which I happened to know for a fact. "He asked me to hold a bright new copper penny up in my fingers, and he made it disappear in a bright blue light. I didn't smell or feel anything. I was just fascinated at that point. "I got a little uneasy when he ordered me to destroy the tapes and any other correspondence and anything to do with UFOs. He said that if I didn't do so I would suffer the same fate as Barney Hill" [a renowned 'contactee who had died under mysterious circumstances]. "I truly believe that this individual was from another planet. He is not an invader. I don't think so anyway. But I do feel he, and others like him, are around, nosing about..."
UFO Government Cover Up
Although many fingers point to the government having secret UFO operations and cover ups, the military appears to be involved as well. Perhaps they have their own version of MIB. Lance Corporal Jonathan Weygandt, along with two other Sergeants, were asked to respond to a possible crash site in a forest in Peru. After responding and finding the downed UFO, he was arrested. All of his gear was taken by what he describes as, "men in black cammies." He was told, "If we just took you out in the jungle, they would never find you out there." It was made clear to him that, "You never saw this," and should he pursue it further, that he would come up missing.
Although a mounting amount of evidence continues to grow as far as UFO and alien sightings goes, people are intimidated after having an extraterrestrial encounter. Researchers and witnesses have been threatened and some people either mysteriously disappear or meet an untimely death. It is believed that the MIB were created to install fear into anyone willing to come forth with UFO claims.
Who these beings are who wear dark suits, sunglasses, and drive black cars remains a mystery. Whether they are human or not cannot be determined at this time. What is known is that they want to silence witnesses to any kind of UFO or alien encounter.
