    PRELIMINARY FINDINGS OF PROJECT MILABEvidence for Military Kidnappings of Alleged UFO Abductees

    by Helmut Lammer, Ph. D.

    I. INTRODUCTION

    abductions are generally avery strange and complex

    phenomenon. For skeptics, journalists andthe public it is hard to believe that abduc-tions by alien beings have their basis inphysical reality. Reports of alien beings en-tering bedrooms through walls, levitatingabductees through closed windows andinto a waiting craft are hard for the open-minded researcher to believe, too.However, well respected researchers haveshown that the core of the UFO-abductionphenomena cannot be explained psycho-logically, as hallucinations or mass delu-sions [1]. The passing decades of abduc-tion research brought other changes.Recently, some UFO abductees have al-leged that they were also being kidnappedby military/intelligence personnel (MI-LAB) and taken to hospitals and/or mili-tary ground/underground facilities.

    Few of the popular books on the subjectof UFO abductions mentioned these expe-riences. Especially disconcerting is thefact that abductees recalled seeing mili-tary/intelligence personnel working sideby side with alien beings in these secretfacilities. The presence of human militaryand/or civilian personnel inhabiting thesame physical reality as the alien beingsexceeds both the mindsets of the skepticand open-minded researcher alike by sev-eral orders of magnitude. The skepticswould rather believe that stories of aliensand military personnel in government un-derground facilities are fabrications de-signed to elicit attention from conspiracybelievers or hallucinations in general.Researchers in the field of mind controlsuggest that these cases are evidence thatthe whole UFO abduction phenomenon isstaged by the intelligence community as acover for their illegal experiments [2]. Theopen-minded researchers who fight for areputation in abduction research ignorethese stories, since they represent only aminor fraction in their files [3]. I think

    that abduction cases in which the abducteereports that he/she was also abducted bythe military are very important for tworeasons:

    1.) If the UFO community has evidencethat a covert military/intelligence taskforce is involved in the UFO abductionphenomenon, we would then know thatthis phenomenon represents a matter of na-tional security.

    2.) The alleged military involvement inthe abduction phenomenon could be evi-dence that they use abductees for mindcontrol experiments, as test-targets for mi-crowave weapons, or that they monitor andkidnap abductees for information-gather-ing purposes during a UFO abduction ex-perience.

    If one of these points is correct, one canexpect to run into early resistance whenproposing congressional hearings aboutUFOs. For these reasons I started ProjectMILAB and present in this article my pre-liminary findings. MILAB is the acronymfor Military Abductions of alleged UFOabductees. I reviewed the relevant litera-ture, contacted UFO and mind control re-searchers, MILAB abductees and mindcontrol victims all over the world and com-pared my findings with the comprehensiveUFO Abduction Study of Dr. ThomasBullard [4, 5], the MUFON TranscriptionProject [6, 7] and the MIT AbductionProceedings [1].

    II. Helicopter activity in connectionwith MILABs

    My study indicates that, generally,MILABs are harassed by dark, unmarkedhelicopters around their houses. The mys-terious helicopter activity goes back to thelate sixties, early seventies, when theyshowed an interest in animal mutilationsbut not for alleged UFO abductees [8, 9,10]. However, well known researcherRaymond E. Fowler reports mysterioushelicopter activity in connection with UFOwitnesses during the seventies [11]. Dr.

    Dr. Lammer is ascientist with theAustrian SpaceResearch In-stitute. He is theAustrian repre-sentative for theMutual UFONetwork, a MU-FON consultantin geophysics,and a member ofthe Society forScientific Ex-ploration (SSE).[1] Prichard,David, and Mack,John: AlienDiscussions:Proceedings ofthe AbductionStudy Con-ference held atMIT.

    Thomas Bullard compared 270 UFO ab-duction cases worldwide between 1868and 1984, the majority of which occuredduring the seventies and early eighties [4,5]. There are only four abduction cases inDr. Bullard's study in which the abducteessaw helicopters over or near their housesAmong these cases is the well i nves i i ^MUdBetty Andreasson/Luca abduction [r iiimportant to note that these helicoptercases occured in North America, three ofthem in the USA and one in Canada.There were sightings of mysterious heli-copters in England during the seventies,but not in connection with animal mutila-tions or UFO abductions [12].

    I found that helicopter activity reported inconnection with UFO abductions hastended to increase from the eighties up tothe present. Dan Wright has presently tencases in the MUFON Transcription Projectfiles in which helicopters were seen flyingin the area of the abductee's home withinhours of an alleged abduction [7]. On aver-age, many abduction researchers in NorthAmerica have about three helicopter casesin connection with UFO abductions in theirfiles. It appears to me that this is a NorthAmerican phenomenon, since none of thecontacted researchers in Australia, Africa,Europe and South America have well in-vestigated abduction cases in connectionwith alleged helicopter activity.

    Well known abductees like the beforementioned Betty Andreasson/Luca, orDebby Jordan, Kathy Mitchell, WhitleyStrieber, Leah Haley, Katharina Wilson,Beth Collins, Anna Jamerson and manymore were harassed by these phantom heli-copters [e.g., 1 3 N 15 16, 17, 20]. It isnot just if ied to Miguos i ihat these heli-copters represeni ilu black Cadillacs of theMen in Black (MlBj during the nineties[4], since some abductees have photos ofthem and they were also seen by witnesseswho have nothing to do with the UFO phe-nomenon, [e.g., 10, 13, 18]. It seems as ifthese unmarked helicopters operate forsome sort of secr
