The Spy, The Priest, and The UFO




I came across a most exciting and fascinating story while reading my latest issue of UFO Magazine.  Unfortunately, that is just what it will have to remain: a story.

The UFO article is attributed to only "Case Officer X," an author who refuses to give (I'm assuming the gender here) his name as he once worked for one of our nation's intelligence agencies.  He makes a reference to "the HQ lobby in Langley, Virginia."  That would of course indicate CIA but in the end it really means nothing.  So this spy, for lack of better term, was given a mission in the 1990s dealing with a college archeology professor.  This academic was involved with a shadowy, non-governmental agency that was researching the "otherworldly origin" of things here on Earth.  This archeologist excavated a highly sensitive artifact in Egypt but did not hand it over.  Case Officer X (hereafter referred to as COX) was sent to acquire the professor and the artifact before the man could turn it over to enemy intelligence...read, KGB, I'm thinking.

You can see why this had me hooked.  It's James Bond chasing after Indiana Jones because the latter may be in possession of a piece of a UFO.  Awesome.

Under a false identity, COX met the professor in France and lured him outside to a car.  A US special ops team was waiting inside the car.  They drugged the professor and drove him to a safe house.  Once they had the man restrained "for his safety" with a few strips of duct tape, they began to go through his belongings and found what looked like an optical disk with hieroglyphic markings on it.  The professor explained that he had found the disk within a 2,000 year-old dig site...and that he was convinced it was extraterrestrial in origin.  COX and his fellow team members, each former Navy SEALs according to him, tested the durability of the disk.  The flung it about, stomped on it, held it to a lighter.  Absolutely nothing seemed to damage this artifact.

The professor alleged that the hieroglyphic writing on the disk was similar to symbols found on the secret Nazi project called The Bell.  In World War II, the Nazis supposedly created this device that was capable of any number of rumored things such as anti-gravity flight, time travel, or other activities more occult in nature.  The UFO said to have been recovered in the Kecksburg UFO Incident was purported to have been approximately the same shape and size of The Bell.  Like The Bell, the Kecksburg UFO had odd, hieroglyphic symbols around its base, the kind that the professor in COX's story seemed to have knowledge of.

A retrieval team for the professor and the disk arrived.  One of the men was an Irish priest by the name of Malachi Martin.  In addition to being a clergyman, Father Martin had a background in archeology, history, and was conversant in numerous languages.  He was also an exorcist, involved even in the Amityville Horror case. 

This guy sounds straight from an H.P. Lovecraft story.  Are you following this?  It...keeps...getting...better.

What Fr. Martin's purpose for being there that day in France was and still is unknown to COX.  COX did seem comfortable enough to write that Martin was working with the same agency that had originally hired the professor.  Additionally, Martin "died in 1999 under suspicious circumstances."  Was the disk a piece of alien technology?  That remains unknown.

Great story!  Yet as I said, that's all it is at present.  It's a story told by anonymous author with not a shred of solid evidence to corroborate it.  Father Martin, on the other hand, was a real person.  A simple Google search confirms that.  He was the author of numerous books of theology, was friends with M. Scott Peck, the author of The Road Less Traveled, and was even a guest on Coast-to-Coast AM with Art Bell.  In one of his books, Martin asserts that Pope John Paul I was murdered.  The final book Martin was working on, entitled Primacy: How the Institutional Roman Catholic Church became a Creature of the New World Order, was not completed before his death.  Cue ominous music.

I know.  If COX is indeed who he claims to be, then there would be no evidence that he could offer even if it existed, at least not without forfeiting his life.  Of course that begs the question, why is he writing about it in the first place??  Another check mark in the story's favor is that Bill and Nancy Birnes usually do a pretty good job of vetting their stories for UFO Magazine and seldom print a story out of caprice.  That's all there is, though.  Not enough, in my humble opinion, to substantiate this as a bona fide incident or evidence of a worldwide UFO cover-up or ancient aliens or the like. 

That said, it remains a great story.  And I love a great story.
