Dr. Jacques Valée is an academic who holds a masters degree in astrophysics and a Ph.D., in computer science. He co-developed the first computerized map of Mars for NASA in 1963. The subject of UFOs first attracted his attention as an astronomer in Paris, and he subsequently became a close associate of J. Allen Hynek, who headed the US Air Force’s investigation into the UFO phenomenon, known as Project Blue Book.
Valée is one of the foremost researchers of the UFO phenomenon. He as been investigating it for decades. With governments around the world now acknowledging the phenomenon after years of ridicule, it would be encouraging for them to work with researchers like Valée. This, unfortunately, does not happen.
In one of his latest books, Forbidden Science 4, he shares a record of his private study into unexplained phenomenon between 1990 and the end of the millennium, during which he was traveling around the world pursuing his professional work as a high-technology investor. It’s a bit of a diary, documenting his experiences and encounters/meetings as he tries to examine and explore the phenomenon.
In an entry dated Thursday 26 March 1992, Vallée writes:
“I have secured a document confirming that the CIA simulated UFO abductions in Latin America (Brazil and Argentina) as psychological warfare experiments.”
If this is true, it’s quite concerning. Reading this line from his book triggered me back to earlier in his book when he mentions one of many conversations he’s had with Ron Blackburn, a former Colonel in the US Air Force.
