Phil Schneider died
on January 17, 1996, reportedly strangled by a catheter found wrapped
around his neck – the bizarre death being dismissed by the authorities
as suicide. If the circumstances of his death seem highly controversial,
they are matched by the controversy over his public statements uttered
shortly before his death.
Phil Schneider was a self-taught geologist and explosives expert. Of the
129 deep underground facilities Schneider believed the
government had constructed since World War II, he claimed to have worked
on 13. Two of these bases were major, including the much rumored
bioengineering facility at
Dulce, New Mexico.
At Dulce, Schneider
maintained, "gray" humanoid extraterrestrials worked side by side with
American technicians. In 1979, a misunderstanding arose. In the ensuing
shootout, 66 Secret Service, FBI and Black Berets were killed along with
an unspecified nurnber of "grays". It was here he received a beam-weapon
blast to the chest which caused his later cancer; many have confirmed
that a large scar indeed existed.
Schneider maintained that numerous previous attempts had been made on
his life, including the removal of the nuts from one of the front wheels
of his automobile.
He had stated publicly he
was a marked man and did not expect to live long.
"If I ever 'commit
suicide'," Schneider told a close friend, "I'll have been murdered."
Some of Schneider's more
major accusations are worthy of attention:
The American government
concluded a treaty with "gray" aliens in 1954. This mutual
cooperation pact is called the Grenada Treaty.
The space shuttle has
been producing special alloys in orbit. A vacuum is needed for the
creation of these special metals, thereby justifying the mandate for
a large, permanently manned space station.

bomb blast and the Oklahoma City blast were achieved using small
nuclear devices. The melting and pitting of the concrete and the
extrusion of metal supporting rods indicated this. (Schneider's
forte, he claimed, was explosives.)
Finally, Phil Schneider
lamented that the democracy he loved no longer existed:
we had become instead a
technocracy ruled by a shadow government intent on imposing their
own view of things on all of us, whether we like it or not.
He believed 11 of his best
friends had been murdered in the last 22 years, eight of whose deaths
had been officially explained as suicides.
Whatever one might think of Phil Schneider's claims, it's clear that he
was of particular interest to the FBI and CIA. His widow
has stated that intelligence agents thoroughly searched the premises
shortly after his death and made off with at least a third of the family
