Randy: Actually, no. That one made complete sense, because those days surrounding Nixon's announcement — you said that message was sent five days previous to his announced resignation. That five-day period, if I remember my history correctly, was extremely turmoiled, and if you go back to the New York Times and read in depth the political commentary during those days, what you're going to find is that there was a awful lot of turbulence. I mean, five days prior there were a lot of steps being taken. It would not surprise me if that message was — that message would have been promulgated and sent five full days prior to the public announcement, because the public is always the last one to know. So I found that the most realistic of the things that were in here.
Bill: Fantastic! God is answering my prayers. Oh wow, it makes me so happy. Listen Randall, I've been taping this whole phone conversation.
If you want me to destroy this tape, I will. The reason I do it is I never know when somebody's going to say something that is important or not.
Randy: I have nothing to hide from you, Bill.
Bill: Okay, but I just want you to know I've never betrayed a source or used a person's name when they asked me not to. I've never used a tape if they asked me not to. If they asked me to destroy it, I've always done that.
I try to work with everybody in a manner that they're comfortable working with, because my goal is not to embarrass or hurt anyone, if s to stop this thing thaf s happening.
Randy: Well, you've got another recruit.
Randy: Who is Linda Howe?
Bill: Linda Moulton Howe is a TV producer who — I don't remember when it was, '78 or something like that, she made a film called "A Strange Harvest" about the animal mutilations, the cattle mutilations...
Randy: Yeah, because in your notarized statement you make reference to her.
Bill: Yes, she contacted me along with a whole bunch of other people, but I tried to pick out the people who I thought were the most professional and the most likely to stand up under scrutiny or attempts to discredit and I figured she was one of those people, so...
Randy I think, I think where you're at right now with the data you 194 • BEHOLD A PALE HORSE William Cooper have is — I mean, if s time to try to get it in front of people.
Bill: Yes, that's what I'm trying to do.
Randy: I'm in the process now of — as a matter of fact, when you called I was drafting the cover of a FAX that I'm sending to KGO Radio, which is a local radio talk station. Its a clear-channel station; it's heard all up and down the West Coast.
Bill: Great! Fantastic!
Randy: There's a moderator there named Ron Owens who — I'm sending this to him with a statement, "This is not being sent to you as a joke. Ifs being sent to you as something that I think you should take a minute and just read it." And I've asked him to contact you. And basically I said, "Ron, if ten percent of this is true, then we're in trouble."
Bill: Right. Absolutely. And there's a lot...you know, when I give a talk or something, someone will always stand up and say, "How do we know that you're not just feeding us disinformation?" and I say, "Just think about what you're saying. What I'm after is the truth. I'm telling you what I saw in these documents and where my research has led me over the intervening 17 years. Thaf s what I am imparting to you. I want you to go and verify this or not verify it or prove it wrong or whatever you can do on your own. And I'm perfectly willing to listen to anything that you have to say, but just think about what you just said. If in fact I'm giving you disinformation, then you're in worse trouble than you ever thought of. It would be better if there are aliens, because if there's not aliens that means this whole thing has been perpetrated by the Government for some purpose that we don't even know about. What it really means is we got the whole human establishment against us." And that really opens their eyes because it's true.
Randy: You just kicked off another memory...
And that is another story. Note: Randy Terpstra called the Billy Goodman Happening two days later, during the week ending November 4, 1989, and repeated live on the air what he told me during this taped phone conversation.
On Sunday, November 5, 1989, I played the tape to an audience of approximately 800 people at Hollywood High School.
When President Nixon gave his farewell speech, he said he would tell the American people the truth about UFOs. Like James Forrestal, Richard Nixon found himself a prisoner on the mental ward of Bethesda Naval Hospital Unlike Forrestal, Nixon survived. He has remained silent.

Pope John XXII, 1935 196 • BEHOLD A PALE HORSE William Cooper
PERSPECTIVEMany sources of information were used to research this chapter. I originally wrote this piece as a research paper. It was first delivered at the MUFON Symposium on July 2,1989, in Las Vegas, Nevada. Most of this knowledge comes directly from, or is a result of my own research into the TOP SECRET/MAJIC material which I saw and read between the years 1970 and 1973 as a member of the Intelligence Briefing Team of the Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet. Since some of this information was derived from sources that I cannot divulge for obvious reasons, and from published sources which I cannot vouch for, this chapter must be termed a hypothesis. I firmly believe that if aliens are real, this is the true nature of the Beast. It is the only scenario that has been able to bind all the diverse elements. It is the only scenario that answers all the questions and places the various fundamental mysteries in an arena that makes sense. It is the only explanation which shows the chronology of events and demonstrates that the chronologies, when assembled, match perfectly. The bulk of this I believe to be true if the material that I viewed in the Navy is authentic. As for the rest, I do not know, and that is why this paper must be termed a hypothesis. Most historic and current available evidence supports this hypothesis.
THE SECRET GOVERNMENTDuring the years following World War II the government of the United States was confronted with a series of events which were to change beyond prediction its future and with it the future of humanity. These events were so incredible that they defied belief. A stunned President Truman and his top military commanders found themselves virtually impotent after having just won the most devastating and costly war in history.
The United States had developed, used, and was the only nation on earth in possession of the atomic bomb. This new weapon had the potential to destroy any enemy, and even the Earth itself. At that time the United States had the best economy, the most advanced technology, the highest standard of living, exerted the most influence, and fielded the largest and most powerful military forces in history. We can only imagine the confusion and concern when the informed elite of the United States Government discovered that an alien spacecraft piloted by insectlike beings from totally incomprehensible culture had crashed in the desert of New Mexico.
Between January 1947 and December 1952 at least 16 crashed or downed alien craft, 65 alien bodies, and 1 live alien were recovered. An additional alien craft had exploded and nothing was recovered from that Chapter Twelve The Secret Government • 197 incident. Of these events, 13 occurred within the borders of the United States, not including the craft which disintegrated in the air. Of these 13, 1 was in Arizona, 11 were in New Mexico, and 1 was in Nevada. Three occurred in foreign countries. Of those, 1 was in Norway and the last 2 were in Mexico. Sightings of UFOs were so numerous that serious investigation and debunking of each report became impossible, utilizing the existing intelligence assets.
An alien craft was found on February 13, 1948, on a mesa near Aztec, New Mexico. Another craft was located on March 25, 1948, in White Sands Proving Ground. It was 100 feet in diameter. A total of 17 alien bodies were recovered from those two crafts. Of even greater significance was the discovery of a large number of human body parts stored within both of these vehicles. A demon had reared its head and paranoia quickly took hold of everyone then "in the know." The Secret lid immediately became a Top Secret lid and was screwed down tight. The security blanket was even tighter than that imposed upon the Manhattan Project. In the coming years these events were to become the most closely guarded secrets in the history of the world.
A special group of America's top scientists were organized under the name Project SIGN in December 1947 to study the phenomenon. The whole nasty business was contained. Project SIGN evolved into Project GRUDGE in December 1948. A low-level collection and disinformation project named BLUE BOOK was formed under GRUDGE. Sixteen volumes were to come out of GRUDGE. "Blue Teams" were put together to recover the crashed disks and dead or live aliens. The Blue Teams were later to evolve into Alpha Teams under Project POUNCE.
During these early years the United States Air Force and the Central intelligence Agency exercised complete control over the "alien secret." In fact, the CIA was formed by Presidential Executive Order first as the Central Intelligence Group for the express purpose of dealing with the alien presence. Later the National Security Act was passed, establishing it as the Central Intelligence Agency.
The National Security Council was established to oversee the intelligence community and especially the alien endeavor. A series of National Security Council memos and Executive orders removed the CIA from the sole task of gathering foreign intelligence and slowly but thoroughly "legalized" direct action in the form of covert activities at home and abroad.
On December 9,1947, Truman approved issuance of NSC-4, entitled "Coordination of Foreign Intelligence Information Measures" at the urging of Secretaries Marshall, Forrestal, Patterson, and the director of the State Department's Policy Planning Staff, George Kennan.
198 • BEHOLD A PALE HORSE William Cooper The Foreign and Military Intelligence, Book 1, "Final Report of the Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities," United States Senate, 94th Congress, 2nd Session, Report No.
94-755, April 26,1976, p. 49, states: "This directive empowered the Secretary of State to coordinate overseas information activities designed to counter communism."
A Top Secret annex to NSC-4, NSC-4A, instructed the director of Central Intelligence to undertake covert psychological activities in pursuit of the aims set forth in NSC-4. The initial authority given the CIA for covert operations under NSC-4A did not establish formal procedures for either coordinating or approving these operations. It simply directed the DCI to "undertake covert actions and to ensure, through liaison with State and Defense, that the resulting operations were consistent with American policy."
Later NSC-10/1 and NSC-10/2 were to supersede NSC-4 and NSC-4A and expand the covert abilities even further. The Office of Policy Coordination (OPC) was chartered to carry out an expanded program of covert activities. NSC-10/1 and NSC-10/2 validated illegal and extralegal practices and procedures as being agreeable to the national security leadership.
The reaction was swift. In the eyes of the intelligence community "no holds were barred." Under NSC-10/1 an Executive Coordination Group was established to review, but not approve, covert project proposals. The ECG was secretly tasked to coordinate the alien projects. NSC-10/1 & /2 were interpreted to mean that no one at the top wanted to know about anything until it was over and successful.
These actions established a buffer between the President and the information. It was intended that this buffer serve as a means for the President to deny knowledge if leaks divulged the true state of affairs. This buffer was used in later years for the purpose of effectively isolating succeeding Presidents from any knowledge of the alien presence other than what the Secret Government and the intelligence community wanted them to know.
NSC-10/2 established a study panel which met secretly and was made up of the scientific minds of the day. The study panel was not called MJ-12.
Another NSC memo, NSC-10/5 further outlined the duties of the study panel. These NSC memos and secret Executive orders set the stage for the creation of MJ-12 only four years later.
Secretary of Defense James Forrestal objected to the secrecy. He was a very idealistic and religious man. He believed that the public should be told. James Forrestal was also one of the first known abductees. When he began to talk to leaders of the opposition party and leaders of the Congress about the alien problem he was asked to resign by Truman. He expressed Chapter Twelve The Secret Government • 199 his fears to many people. Rightfully, he believed that he was being watched. This was interpreted by those who were ignorant of the facts as paranoia. Forrestal later was said to have suffered a mental breakdown.
He was ordered to the mental ward of Bethesda Naval Hospital. In spite of the fact that the Administration had no authority to have him committed, the order was carried out. In fact, it was feared that Forrestal would begin to talk again. He had to be isolated and discredited. His family and friends were denied permission to visit. Finally, on May 21, 1949, Forrestal's brother made a fateful decision. He notified authorities that he intended to remove James from Bethesda on May 22. Sometime in the early morning of May 22,1949, agents of the CIA tied a sheet around James Forrestal's neck, fastened the other end to a fixture in his room, then threw James Forrestal out the window. The sheet tore and he plummeted to his death. James Forrestal's secret diaries were confiscated by the CIA and were kept in the White House for many years. Due to public demand the diaries were eventually rewritten and published in a sanitized version. The real diary information was later furnished by the CIA in book form to an agent who published the material as fiction. The name of the agent is Whitley Strieber and the book is Majestic. James Forrestal became one of the first victims of the cover-up.
The live alien that had been found wandering in the desert from the 1949 Roswell crash was named EBE. The name had been suggested by Dr.
Vannevar Bush and was short for Extraterrestrial Biological Entity. EBE had a tendency to lie, and for over a year would give only the desired answer to questions asked. Those questions which would have resulted in an undesirable answer went unanswered. At some point during the second year of captivity he began to open up. The information derived from EBE was startling, to say the least. This compilation of his revelations became the foundation of what would later be called the "Yellow Book."
Photographs were taken of EBE which, among others, I was to view years later Project Grudge.
In late 1951 EBE became ill. Medical personnel had been unable to determine the cause of EBE's illness and had no background from which to draw. EBE's system was chlorophyll-based and he processed food into energy much the same as plants. Waste material was excreted the same as plants. Several experts were called in to study the illness. These specialists included medical doctors, botanists, and entomologists. A botanist, Dr.
Guillermo Mendoza, was brought in to try and help him recover. Dr.
Mendoza worked to save EBE until June 2, 1952, when EBE died. Dr.
Mendoza became the expert on at least this type alien of biology. The movie E.T. is the thinly disguised story of EBE.
