According to accounts released Saturday, April 24, 2010, by the
coordinator of an e-mail news and information service, officials of
the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), U.S. Air Force Office
of Special Investigations (AFOSI) and other U.S. government
agencies have been involved in security activities involving
human-appearing extraterrestrial beings in the U.S.
Victor Martinez, the e-mail information coordinator, is a
former federal employee with an interest in space, defense and
current affairs. Recipients of his e-mail news items include a wide
variety of people interested in emerging and leading-edge scientific
and other developments.
In his April 24 information release, Martinez quoted one of his
alleged established contacts, one of a handful of current or former
officials of the DIA, regarding any new or updated information on
extraterrestrial encounters that would be of interest to the public.
The DIA contact reportedly provided information about the monitoring
and intervention by U.S. officials regarding a particular
extraterrestrial being posing as a human within the U.S., Martinez
wrote in his e-mail report.
The contact also noted the more general issue of extraterrestrials
visiting Earth who may blend in with the human population, for
According to Martinez, his contact stated,
"In reference to your repeated
requests to present some new information never before disclosed
to the public... I went outside of our agency to close
intelligence contacts of mine and secured the following... I
just received information on a highly sensitive operation
code-named 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA' that occurred in early 1980.
It involved U.S. intelligence capturing an alien being living
The contact also allegedly told Martinez,
"Here is the story. Personally, I've
never heard of this particular operation before in all of my
years in intelligence circles and employment. This information
extracted about the alien is still highly classified and
extremely difficult to obtain."
"From what I've learned, except for former presidents Carter,
Reagan and Bush I, most presidents since then have not been
briefed on this specific operation."
Martinez went on to report that an
apparently new source, established via his long-time contacts,
provided additional details on this alleged operation.
The new source reportedly wrote,
"I am an intelligence colleague of
the man whom you have come know as 'Anonymous' who has asked me
to brief you on a very special USG operation."
"I was directly involved with 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA.' It
involved the finding, tracking and eventual capture of an
"The original operation began in early 1980 when an Earth female
was identified by U.S. intelligence as being a so-called 'alien
abductee.' She had been abducted by a male non-human in 1977
which was her first abduction," the source allegedly told
"This woman was single, 23-years-old and a trusted,
well-respected U.S. government employee."
"The male non-human showed the Earth woman
of alien life on another planet. The projection was from a
small, triangle device. The woman viewed this projection which
she described as images displayed in a 3-dimensional
The information source also claimed,
"The male non-human never harmed the
Earth woman abductee. During the three years of her ongoing
abduction, the Earth woman was taken by the male non-human
through a 'veil of light' to another place. The Earth woman
described this place as being 'a light bubble.' She would sit
inside the bubble and view these holographic projections with
the male non-human."
"On one occasion, the male non-human introduced the Earth woman
to another male, whom the Earth woman described in debriefing
details as not being human, i.e., not being an Earth male
abductee. The Earth woman called this other being a "creature.'"
"This creature performed a medical examination on the Earth
woman. The woman did not fully consent to the alien's
examination as she was temporarily paralyzed. After the
examination, the woman was taken back to her residence."
According to Martinez' source or sources, this federal employee's
experience triggered an investigation.
The source reportedly stated,
"When the Earth woman brought up her
abduction by a male alien to the attention of a co-worker, the
co-worker contacted an office security official, who then
contacted U.S. intelligence officials."
"U.S. intelligence spent hours and hours vetting the woman's
story, conducting thorough background investigations, performing
surveillance, and administering several polygraph examinations."
"The Earth woman's story was eventually deemed to be factually
true and correct. U.S. intelligence then mounted a very special,
highly classified operation to capture this alien being, who
lived near Landover, Maryland."
The source(s) also claimed,
"In early 1980, the 7602 Air
Intelligence Wing, Section III, began a detailed, intense
investigation involving the presence of extraterrestrial
creatures having infiltrated the highest levels of the United
"This information originated from several abductees, who
underwent extensive screening to determine their credibility."
"With the assistance of the 4th District, the Air Force Office
of Special Investigations, a highly classified operation was
launched, code named: 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA' to find, detain
and debrief that 'human' and determine whether or not he was an
actual extraterrestrial creature/non-human and an imminent or
potential threat to our national security."
"The entire operation lasted five months and involved
approximately 60 intelligence officers. Every intelligence
gathering capability was utilized at the time: Ground, aerial
surveillance, telephone wiretaps, photographic evidence and
other undisclosed clandestine operations were all conducted and
some simultaneously in concert with one another."
The source also stated,
"The non-human entity was quickly
identified, carefully watched, photographed and eventually
captured near a shopping mall (southeast of Andrews Air Force
Base, Maryland) after it walked up an embankment. It was quickly
determined that this male alien had no special powers nor
"The male non-human voluntarily complied with the U.S.
intelligence AFOSI special agents and went quietly and without
incident. The male non-human was then remanded to custody and
placed in captivity at Ft. Belvoir Army Post, Virginia."
Martinez' source(s) also allegedly reported,
"The male non-human was interrogated
by teams of
special agents over several weeks and in total
was questioned and intensely interrogated for many months by
"It was during this time that the male non-human disclosed its
race, its resident planet and the reason it came to Earth. The
male alien basically cooperated and provided details of its life
on his alien home world."
"The non-human entity was released on the direct orders of then
President Carter in late 1980, and subsequently left Earth and
returned to its home planet."
"The male non-human originated from the star system
Pavonis, 20 light-years from Earth where it was the 4th
planet from their sun. It is roughly the same size as our
"We called the captured alien Septeloids. That was the
identifying alien species name given to them by the
astrobiologists on our team. I have no idea how they picked that
name as well as some of the other odd-sounding alien species
names ending with the suffix of 'loid.'"
"The travel time to Earth was 18 Earth months using a very
complex propulsion system and time-space displacement travel
mode. Back then in 1980, we could not understand the alien
propulsion system and we never saw his spacecraft."
"When President Carter let the male non-human leave, he just
vanished. I was never in the intelligence loop as to how he left
or how he departed Earth," Martinez' source reportedly stated.
"These aliens from Delta Pavonis have been visiting Earth for
100 Earth years. Apparently, they could assume the human shape
and form and easily live among us."
"I'm not sure how they learned English so well nor other
languages. You've got to remember that this was extreme
compartmentalization. I knew just what I was suppose to know.
There is much more to the alien debriefing that I do not know."
"From what I've learned over the years, this race of alien
beings originally came to Earth as explorers about a century
"With respect to the male non-human's employment, he worked as a
records keeper for the U.S. Dept. of Commerce in Washington D.C.
He was able to manufacture his own identification documents by
assuming the name/ID of a deceased Earth human."
"He was in a career that did not require a high-level security
clearance thereby enabling him to escape the much greater
scrutiny given to 'Secret' clearance level background checks and
Martinez quotes his source as stating,
"Although they possessed the human
shape, form and basic anatomy, they were not human beings like
you and me. Their actual, normal, 'real' appearance was that of
a hideous-looking creature that would most certainly scare,
frighten and terrify a normal Earth human."
"Above all, they did not have any extra powers nor abilities.
They had no weapons and never tried to harm Earth humans. Their
sole intent and stated mission was that they just wanted to
study Earth humans and obtain the basic structure of the human
body, anatomy and social interplay."
"I don't know how many others of this specific type of aliens
were among us as I was not authorized that specific highly
classified information," the source reportedly told Martinez.
"However, I am positive that there were more similar-type
operations than just this one. 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA' was just
one operation that lasted nine months from start to finish in
the D.C area."
"U.S. intelligence had more such operations around the U.S.,
with one in the southwest and another in the northwest, but I
don't know for sure on the location details."
In apparent response to a question Martinez posed, the source
"As for other visiting alien races, we
knew of nine of them."
Ebens were the nicest while the
Trantaloids were the
ugliest, meanest sons-a-bitches and most dangerous."
"I only know that the very inner circle of our government knows.
That is about all I can tell you. I never spoke with the male
non-human in 'Operation TANGO-SIERRA,' but I was actively
involved in this operation. Most of the older fellows who knew
all of this are dead now. Former CIA Director Richard M.
Helms was our boss for this operation. He died some years
Martinez noted in his report that Navy
Adm. Stansfield Turner was CIA director at the time.
"The CIA/DIA/NSA were all involved
as well as one or two FBI special agents, but they were never
"The lead agency was the 7602nd that operated out of Ft. Belvoir.
Those guys were the best of the best. I was the lead case
officer for the surveillance part of the operation. I was very
good at that. I was trained by the best and worked inside the
old Soviet Union for many, many years."
"I could follow the devil around and he would never know it.
Most of the UFO operations - clandestine, that is - were
performed by the 7602nd."
"In fact, the CIA came to them for their specialized training.
The 7602nd Air Intelligence Wing remained secret for
many years. Although it was a U.S. Air Force unit, the unit
contained all branches of the armed forces except the Marines...
we never could train those guys!"
Martinez' alleged new contact also
reportedly advised him,
"Your Anonymous source is probably
someone I know since we have a very close-knit intel group who
meets about once a month where we discuss items of mutual
interest. We all live in the [REDACTED] and [REDACTED]. We have
many intel contacts in Texas, especially Austin."
"We used to have a much larger group, but over the years, time
has taken its share of our beloved, cherished friends ... "
"I hope all of this works out for you. Good luck, Mr. Martinez."
One of Martinez sources also commented on other longstanding reports
within the leading-edge community researching allegations of
extraterrestrial visitation to Earth.
"The 'Yellow Book' is quite an
extraordinary piece of alien technology. It was given to us by
the Ebens. It tells the entire history of their race, planet and
most of the history of the universe as well as our own. As far
as I know, no one has ever viewed the 'Yellow Book' to its very
end. As you stated in one of your releases, it would take an
entire lifetime to read it and yet another to understand it."
Martinez indicates he posed a question
to the source about the alleged operation that has been referred to
SERPO," a mission reportedly begun in the early 1960s
that sent a 12-person team of specially-trained U.S. military
personnel on a planned ten-year exchange program to the Ebens' home
"I was briefed into this very
special project many years ago, but only as a trainer. I was not
sure of the exact nature of this project until I read all about
it on the Serpo.org Web site."
"Like all other operations and special projects, SERPO was
highly compartmentalized. I have now read the entire SERPO
story, which I never knew was even posted on the Internet until
I was placed in contact with you. I learned much from it and it
looks like you pretty much have the entire story."
"I congratulate and commend you for getting this very important
piece of America's 'hidden' history out. I really enjoyed
reading this information. I just shared it with many of my old
intel friends - and they knew about it! It's truly an amazing
story ... "
"I guess there still is a controversy on whether two women went
or not. At least one went for sure. I knew six of them while in
training as their instructor. Two were nurses, one was a
linguist and I'm not sure about the others with the passage of
Martinez claims his source also
"There was a 'Group-6' that was
involved in the
Roswell Incident cover up. 'Group-6' controlled
the administrative side of all UFO investigations at the time.
It was centered in New Mexico."
"It primarily involved the 1121 Special Activities Squadron of
the USAF. It also thoroughly investigated the famous Lonnie
Zamora contact incident of Friday, April 24, 1964, in Socorro,
NM; I remember it well because I was stationed in NM then."
"There was in fact an MJ-12 group which stood for 'Majority
Group-12.' It was comprised of 12 USG officials who controlled,
managed and directed every aspect of the UFO phenomenon. Most of
the officials were governmental types, but some were not. That
'MJ-12' name was changed some years ago which I understand you
The source also reportedly stated to
Martinez that the home world of the alleged hostile alien species,
"is the third planet out from the
Epsilon Eridani in the constellation Eridanus at 10.5
light-years away. Although somewhat cooler and fainter than our
sun, it is very similar."
Martinez' source also advised him that,
"...since this information
originated outside of our agency, this is all I can provide you
with at the moment."
Extraterrestrials in The News
Maybe in America
by Steve Hammons
May 1, 2010
Recent news and related accounts such as those described in the
online article “Human-looking ETs secretly in U.S.?” (above report),
seem to have resonated with many people.
Factors involved in the apparent large amount of interest probably
include statements by astrophysicist Stephen Hawking on the
potential hazards of contacting extraterrestrials.
His comments in a Discovery Channel documentary program have been
covered by many journalists and media platforms.
Recent news articles about the Search for Extraterrestrial
Intelligence (SETI) program have also probably provided synergy
regarding interest in this topic.
And, NASA recently held an open teleconference on astrobiology, the
science of the search for extraterrestrial life. NASA has several
projects on the drawing board to expand the search for
Additionally, other scientists, experts and interested people have
weighed in on this fascinating topic.
Is the apparent convergence of these and other current events some
kind of “synchronicity”
- seeming coincidences that actually have connections, meaning and
intelligence? This possibility might be worth considering.
There might also be an education or
preparedness plan of sorts in
Many individuals and groups are interested in greater understanding
and the availability of information about the possibility or
probability that we have been visited by
extra-dimensional intelligent beings, cultures and civilizations.
Bringing more appropriate information on these kinds of topics into
the public media and public consciousness may have some benefits,
and some drawbacks.
Anxiety or concerns about extraterrestrial visitors, famously
evidenced in the 1930 “War of the Worlds” radio show that caused
widespread panic in the U.S., are and should be a legitimate
As noted in the 1992 firefighter training manual
Guide to Disaster Control, psychological impacts of UFOs and related
phenomena are a major hazard involved in public safety.
The authors of Fire Officer's Guide to Disaster Control point out
that “one of the reasons often cited for the tight secrecy on
government UFO research findings is the need to prevent the possible
panic that a revelation of the truth might arouse.”
Additionally, the Fire Officer's Guide states that secrecy seems to
cut both ways.
“One reason given is that military
intelligence may view the UFOs as a tool of either a known or
unknown potential enemy. If these vehicles prove evasive and
surreptitious, all the more reason to suspect them... the
probability looms large that the minds behind these vehicles may
well be gathering intelligence of their own."
“Another reason for secrecy may lie in the hope of obtaining
knowledge relating to advanced propulsion methods and
anti-gravity systems before other potential enemies on Earth may
acquire it. Hence, though many nations are secretly
investigating UFOs, they are reluctant to share their findings,”
according to the Fire Officer's Guide.
The authors also point out that,
“ … if the apparent visits by alien
beings and their space vehicles should pose any type of threat,
it will, as always, be the fire service that is called upon to
provide the first line of life-saving defense and disaster
In an April 30, 2010, article titled “Stephen Hawking alien warning:
Could we talk to them?” on the
Christian Science Monitor Web site, CSM staff writer Peter Grier tells readers that a respected
cryptologist at the U.S. National Security Agency wrote an
unclassified paper decades ago about developing communication
methods for contact with extraterrestrials.
NSA cryptologist Lambros Callimahos,
“developed and taught the NSA’s most
intensive senior cryptology course,” according to the article.
Callimahos' paper, “Communication with
Extraterrestrial Intelligence,” proposed communications concepts and
methods that could be used.
“Fascinated from childhood by both
music and codes, he volunteered for cryptology during World War
II, and eventually developed and taught the NSA’s most intensive
senior cryptology course,” Grier noted in his article.
in 1977 and was inducted into NSA’s Hall of Honor in 2003.”
Grier’s article also explained that
Callimahos apparently had a positive view of human contact with a
superior extraterrestrial intelligence.
“Like Hawking, Mr. Callimahos
assumed that any aliens who contact Earth probably will be our
technological betters. Unlike Hawking, Callimahos thought
this would be great,” Grier wrote.
Callimahos reportedly noted,
“the enormous potential gain from
our contact with a superior civilization” in a 1966 article he
wrote for the NSA Technical Journal.
In sync with Grier’s enlightening
information about Callimahos’ formal interest in this topic going
back at least to the 1960s, other accounts of U.S. government
interest and activities regarding possible ET contact also claim
that much work has been discreetly conducted in these kinds of
One of the most interesting reports is the claim that Steven
Spielberg’s 1977 movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind actually
was based on a true U.S. operation in the portrayal of a secret,
special 12-person U.S. team in a planned rendezvous with ETs on U.S.
According to information that has been catalogued on the Web site
SERPO), in the early 1960s, after many years of
preparation following the Roswell incident and other related
situations, certain U.S. military personnel were screened and
trained for a planned 10-year exchange program.
They reportedly went to the home planet of apparently friendly
As in the Close Encounters movie, the operation allegedly did
proceed, and at a landing of the ETs’ spacecraft within the U.S.,
the 12-person team boarded with years’ worth of supplies and
equipment for the extended mission.
The Project SERPO accounts are claimed to be accurate, at least in
the broad sense and with regard to the core story. Information about
the program was reportedly released for the public by current and
former officials of the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency. However,
the accuracy of these reports has also been questioned.
Now, there are similarly-based reports of a U.S. intelligence
operation that investigated and apprehended a human-looking male ET
who was conducting some kind of activities involving a female
The alleged Operation TANGO-SIERRA carried out by U.S. intelligence
community personnel reportedly came to the attention of

Researchers, journalists and others seem
to be re-evaluating reports about unconventional U.S. defense and
intelligence activities regarding contact and interaction with
The “situation awareness” about possible visitation to Earth by
extraterrestrials, as well as other emerging scientific
understanding about many phenomena, appears to be steadily

There are misconceptions as well as misinformation about some

EDUCATION AND COMMUNICATION
To address, respond to and enhance increasing interest in various
kinds of edge-science developments, new education, communication and
information platforms are coming forward.
For example, Open Minds Production in Tempe, Arizona, provides
online news, radio, TV and related resources about certain
unconventional areas of study. Their Open Minds magazine also
explores extraterrestrial contacts, UFO research and other
Interestingly, Tempe is also home to Arizona State University’s
Beyond Center for Fundamental Research, led by Dr. Paul Davies,
author of the book The Eerie Silence: Renewing Our Search for
Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The Beyond Center, staffed
by ASU professors from diverse fields, is investigating and
discussing a wide and deep range of emerging scientific knowledge.
magazine EdgeScience, associated with the
Scientific Exploration, recently published its third edition. This
publication also looks at forward-leaning views and research in a
variety of scientific fields.
And, information continues to surface about the U.S. defense and
intelligence communities’ research into human consciousness,
extrasensory perception and remote viewing.
Usually referred to by the final code name known to the public,
Project STAR GATE, these research and operational
intelligence activities provided tremendous new understanding about
the potential of human perception and awareness.
Through these and other efforts, there appears to be increasing
awareness that there is much to be learned and understood about
unknowns and mysteries in Nature around us and within us.
The recent attention paid to an account of the alleged U.S.
investigation, apprehension, interrogation and “deportation” of a
human-looking extraterrestrial reflects changing perspectives on
such possible situations.
Referred to as “Operation TANGO-SIERRA” in recent online accounts,
in 1980 U.S. defense and intelligence agents reportedly intervened
in the ongoing contact between the extraterrestrial and a federal
employee that had begun in 1977.
The initial source for this report is allegedly one of a handful of
current and former Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)
officials who for the last several years have been releasing
information about U.S. government activities involving
The DIA source put a researcher and educator, Victor Martinez, in
touch with another source from an unnamed government agency.
Martinez then passed the report on via e-mail to a large list of
researchers, current and former government officials, and others.
These same current or former DIA officials had reportedly followed
similar procedures leading up to the release of information in late
2005 about an exchange program between the U.S. and a friendly
extraterrestrial race of beings.
The program, which reportedly began in the early 1960s, sent 12
carefully selected and trained U.S. military personnel to the home
planet of these extraterrestrials for a planned ten-year stay.
The effort, referred to in the releases as “Project SERPO,” may have
been the basis for part of Steven Spielberg’s 1977 movie Close
Encounters of the Third Kind.
This is obviously difficult to
determine. It is possible that there are truths “between the lines,”
though the details might be altered or even untrue.
The broad concepts about UFOs, extraterrestrial visitation and U.S.
government engagement in the situation may, though, be truthful.
What general messages can be taken from these two accounts?
It seems that some of the main themes are:
ETs and possibly other anomalous
intelligences are here on Earth, certain U.S. government
elements have been actively involved for quite a while and the
situation is complex, sensitive and challenging.
In addition, the wider public may have a
“need to know” through a gradual, safe and steady process of
information, communication, education and acclimation.
