MILAB Research Ruffles Feathers
By Helmut Lammer, Ph.D.
“I think that abduction cases involving abductee reports of being abducted by the military as well as ET beings are very important for two reasons: 1.) If the UFO community has evidence that a covert military intelligence task force is involved in the abduction phenomenon, we would know that this phenomenon represents a matter of national security. 2.) The alleged military involvement in the abduction phenomenon could be evidence that the military uses abductees for mind control experiments as test-targets for microwave weapons. Moreover, the military could be monitoring and even kidnapping abductees for information gathering purposes during, before and after a UFO abduction.” — Helmut Lammer
The anti-MILAB group has made an attempt to connect my private research interests with my workplace. This is in response to: (1) the publication of my third MILAB article in the MUFON UFO Journal, April 1999, No. 372; (2) a reply concerning an article attempting to debunk research about alleged military involvement in some “alien” abduction encounters by Victoria Lacas Alexander (wife of Col. John Alexander, ret.) in CAUS updates, March 1999; and (3) our new book titled MILABS!
Therefore, I am informing all readers and other researchers that my research of UFO phenomena, abductions and MILABS is not connected with my work as a space scientist. It does not represent the opinion of my department, my director, etc. and is not supported by them. My research is private and is based on my own hypothesis, which is supported by investigative journalism.
I also do not claim that the whole United States military or related intelligence agencies are involved in alien abductions, UFO-research, kidnappings of abductees, examinations, etc., and I am not anti-American.
However, it is my democratic opinion that there are indications that covert human forces may be involved in the abduction phenomenon. This is only an hypothesis and the discussion about this should not be forbidden or censored in democratic societies. If attempts continue to be made, we should remind ourselves and the anti-MILAB group, that we do not live in the former Soviet Union or Serbia, we live in a democratic society.
It is a known, published fact that segments of the United States military-intelligence agencies experimented on unwitting people during the Cold War (New Scientist, No. 1961, 1995; No. 2030, 1996; No. 2058, 1996, etc.), even though it was illegal. I do not believe that our MILAB critics can guarantee or prove that such secret experiments have ended.

Dear Errol Bruce-Knapp,
Please note that I’ve not been involved in this kind of private research for more than 10 years, and the content of the article MILABS [not published on this site] does not reflect my present day opinion.
