(MATILDA O'DONNELL MACELROY PERSONAL NOTE)
"I remained at the base, mostly confined to my quarters, for another
3 weeks after Airl had been "incapacitated" by Dr. Wilcox.
day I was escorted to the room where Airl lay on the bed under
continued surveillance by Dr. Wilcox, and others, I assume. Each
time I went to the room, I was asked to try to communicate with Airl
again. Each time there was no response. This saddened me a great
deal. As the days continued I became increasing more certain and
distressed that Airl was "dead", if that is the right word for it.
Every day, I re-read the transcripts of my interviews with Airl,
searching for a clue that might remind me of something or help me in
some way to re-establish communication with Airl. I still had the
envelope in my possession with copies of the transcripts that Airl
was asked to sign. To this day, I don't understand why no one ever
asked me to return them. I suppose they forgot about the copy of the
transcripts in all the excitement. I did not offer to return them. I
kept them concealed under the mattress of my bed all the time I
remained at the base, and have kept them with me ever since then.
You will be the first person to see these transcripts.
Since Airl's body was not biological, the doctors could not detect
whether the body was alive or dead unless it moved. Of course I knew
that if Airl was not consciously animating the body as an IS-BE, the
body would not move. I explained this to Dr. Wilcox. I explained
this to him several times.
Each time he just gave me a patronizing
sort of smile, patted my arm, and thanked me for trying again.
At the end of the third week I was told by Dr. Wilcox that my
services would no longer be needed because it had been decided by
the military to move Airl to a larger, more secure military medical
facility that was better equipped to deal with the situation. He
didn't say anything about where the facility was located.
That was the last time I saw Airl's doll body.
The following day I received written orders, signed by
Twining. The orders said that I had completed my service to the U.S.
military and was officially discharged from further duty and that I
would receive an honorable discharge and a generous military
pension. I would be also be relocated by the military, and given a
new identity with the appropriate documents.
Along with the orders I received a document that I was instructed to
read and sign. It was an oath of secrecy. The language of the
document was full of "legalese", but the point was very clearly made
that I was to never, ever discuss anything whatsoever with anyone
whatsoever about anything whatsoever that I has seen, heard or
experienced during my service in the military - under pain of death
as an Act of Treason against the United States of America!
As it turned out, I was placed into a Federal government witness
protection program 240 (Footnote), except that I would be protected
from the government by the government. In other words, as long as I
stayed quiet I could stay alive! The following morning I was placed
aboard a small military transport plane and flown to a relocation
After being shuttled to several locations for short
periods, I eventually I ended up in Glasgow, Montana near Fort Peck.
The night before I was scheduled to board the transport plane, as I
lay in bed contemplating the whole affair and wondering what
happened to Airl, and to me, I suddenly heard Airl's "voice". I sat
bolt upright in my bed and turned on the light on the night stand! I
looked around the room frantically for a few seconds. Then I
realized that it was Airl, the IS-BE. Her body was not in the room
with me, of course, and it didn't need to be.
She said "Hello!". The tone of her thought was plain and friendly.
It was unmistakably Airl. I did not have the least doubt about that!
I thought, "Airl? Are you still here?" She answered that she was
"here", but not in a body on Earth. She had returned to her post at
The Domain base when the doctor and MPs attacked us in the interview
room. She was pleased to perceive that I was well, and that I was
going to be released unharmed.
I wondered how she escaped from them. I was worried that they might
have injured Airl by the shock machine. Airl said that she was able
to leave the body before the shock was administered and avoided the
electric current running through the body. She wanted to let me know
that she was safe and not to worry about her. I was very relieved,
to say the least!
I asked Airl if I would every see her again. Airl reassured me that
we are both IS-BEs. We are not a physical bodies. Now that she had
located me in space and time we would always stay in communication.
Airl wished me well and my communication with her ended for the
240 "...the Witness Protection
"(also known as the Witness Security Program, or WitSec) was
established under Title V of the Organized Crime Control Act of
1970, which in turn sets out the manner in which the U.S.
Attorney General may provide for the relocation and protection
of a witness or potential witness of the federal government, or
for a state government in an official proceeding concerning
organized crime or other serious offenses. See 18 U.S.C.A 3521
The Federal Government also gives
grants to the states to enable them to provide similar services.
The federal program is called WITSEC (the Federal Witness
Protection Program) and was founded in the late 1960s by Gerald
Shur when he was in the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section
of the United States Department of Justice. Most witnesses are
protected by the U.S. Marshals Service, while protection of
incarcerated witnesses is the duty of the Federal Bureau of
Normally, the witness is provided with a new name and location.
Witnesses are encouraged to keep their first names and choose
last names with the same initial. The U. S. Marshals Service
provides new documentation, assists in finding housing and
employment and provides a stipend until the witness gets on his
or her feet, but the stipend can be discontinued if the U.S.
Marshals Service feels that the witness is not making an
aggressive effort to find a job. Witnesses are not to travel
back to their hometowns or contact unprotected family members or
Around 17 percent of protected
witnesses that have committed a crime will commit another crime,
compared to the almost 40 percent of parolees who return to
crime. This has led to action by Congressional committees
requiring WITSEC and other witness protection programs to notify
local officials of a witness' transfer before relocating them.
Many states, including California, Illinois, and New York, have
their own witness protection programs for crimes not covered by
the federal program. The state-run programs provide less
extensive protections than the federal program."
