Why do people think MUFON is a credible UFO research organization? It is an obvious disinformation campaign run by the US govt.
Since so many people on here seem to think MUFON is credible and have the best interest of the UFO community at heart, time to awaken people to what is really below the surface:

Maybe it has to do with the following interesting facts:

· John Schuessler, MUFON Board Member and former International Director was offered a U.S. government security clearance allegedly related to his consulting work for Mr. Bigelow. Now whether John was actually given that clearance, I can’t say for sure, but I was one of the people interviewed as part of his background investigation.

So you ask, who is Mr. Bigelow?

Billionaire ROBERT BIGELOW

CONTACT: XXXXXX XxX XxX Dr, Las Vegas, NV 89109-1593

Bigelow shies from media attention, refusing to have photos taken by or for the press, and also denies television interview requests as well. As unbelievable as it might seem for an entrepreneur in the modern world, Bigelow also says he has never sent an e-mail.

In his book Reading the Enemy's Mind, remote viewer Paul Smith relates that in 1992 Robert Bigelow put the wheels in motion for a radio show on the paranormal, called Area 2000, hosted by Art Bell and featuring reports from George Knapp (whom Bigelow has had a long association with - Knapp was given an exclusive to the Skinwalker Ranch story, and also has covered the Bigelow space efforts) and Linda Moulton Howe. While Bigelow later withdrew sponsorship of the show, Art Bell continued with it and it later evolved into the massively popular Coast to Coast AM.

Over the past decade, Robert Bigelow has continued his backing of paranormal research. He created the National Institute of Discovery Science (NIDS) in 1995 to investigate border phenomena, stocking the advisory board with some of the leading lights in the field such as Jacques Vallee, Hal Puthoff, Melvin Morse and Edgar Mitchell. Employees of the organization were generally PhD scientists, as well as some former FBI field investigators and law-enforcement professionals. The NIDS website provides news and investigations into such wide-ranging topics as 'Black Triangle' sightings, cattle mutilations, consciousness studies and crop circles. NIDS was put into 'in-active' status in 2004 due to a lack of worthwhile cases to investigate.

In March 2009 Bigelow concluded a deal with the Mutual UFO Network to train a special rapid response team of Field Investigators able to be deployed within 24 hours to the scene of a major 'physical trace' UFO event (Category 2 or 3 in the classification system devised by researcher Jacques Vallee).

Bigelow - through NIDS - also bought the 'Skinwalker Ranch' in Utah where residents had reported UFO sightings, cattle mutilations and paranormal experiences. After the ranch shot to national news prominence, he flew to Utah and met with the owners, offering to buy the ranch for about $200,000. He staffed it with a full-time veterinarian and two scientists to monitor the strange activity (the account can be found in Hunt for the Skinwalker). It is believed that he still owns the ranch.

He says his interest in UFOs was spawned...

"...when I was probably around 8 or 9. I began to hear the stories about members of my family that had had a couple of very good sightings, and one was a close encounter. They didn't see actually living creatures. What they saw was an object that they thought was an airplane on fire at first. They stopped their car; it was nighttime and the object was coming right for them. And it grew bigger and bigger in a very short time, a matter of maybe seconds, until it filled up the windshield. Then they realized it wasn't an airplane on fire; they didn't know what it was. Their car was stopped on the side of the road in a remote location at night and they thought they were dead -- until, at the last second before impact, it made a right-angle turn and zipped out of sight. And I remember how shook up they were. Even in telling me years later, they had a very serious look on their face."

Bigelow also funded the UNLV Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies at the University of Nevada, which is dedicated to the "rational investigation of the mysteries of human awareness, including the possibility of the persistence of consciousness after death." He is a member of the Board of Directors of the Rhine Research Center (formerly, The Foundation for the Study of the Nature of Man), and is an associate member of the Society for Scientific Exploration.

· Mr. Bigelow did not fund MUFON’s work for BAASS, instead “sponsors” that Bigelow revealed to John Schuessler but not to the other MUFON Board Members put up the money.

· Mr. Bigelow invalidated his own legal contract with MUFON by refusing to abide by the original deal struck with MUFON and instead changed the terms mid-stream, something the MUFON Board of Directors acquiesced to despite my protests.

· During the project, MUFON provided both historical MUFON files as well as current MUFON case files (including witness information) to BAASS. To cover MUFON legally, the MUFON UFO reporting form was modified to collect the witness’ permission to offer their sighting data to a third party, the only third party being BAASS.

· When I uncovered some very damaging information about the Skinwalker Ranch (also owned by Mr. Bigelow) and provided that information to the MUFON Board along with my doubts about the true agenda of the BAASS-MUFON relationship, the MUFON Board unethically bypassed me and communicated in secret with BAASS in an attempt to continue the project. When I found out about this unethical behavior, initiated by my former friend and current International Director Clifford Clift and MUFON Board member Jan Harzan (probably the next International Director after Cliff retires), I resigned immediately from the MUFON Board and the International Director position.

· Rather than reveal the truth of why I resigned to the MUFON membership, Cliff decided to whitewash the unfortunate events while he swept his broom around MUFON, portraying me as an inept leader who brought MUFON to financial ruin and presenting himself as the savior of the organization. His betrayal stung me to my very core, as I considered him a friend for fourteen years until he revealed who he truly was. At the 2010 MUFON Symposium he told the MUFON State Directors that I left MUFON because the “truth” I was seeking was not the same “truth” the MUFON Board of Directors sought.

So for the leading UFO organization in the world, whose mission statement is the scientific investigation of UFOs, what truth is Mr. Clift alluding to? Maybe it is the sad truth that without a wealthy benefactor behind MUFON, the organization is but an army of volunteers with no funding for their scientific investigation, and if staying within the good graces of the only willing benefactor means compromising ethics and the duties and obligations a non-profit organization has to its membership and to the public, then so be it. I suggest that the MUFON membership deserves more from their leadership.

In fact, every MUFON member should take Mr. Clift up on his promises of transparency and demand answers to the following questions which should be posed to the MUFON Board of Directors:

1. Does John Schuessler currently have an active government security clearance and for what reason was it granted? What is John’s current relationship to BAASS and Mr. Bigelow?

2. Does MUFON still provide current UFO reports to BAASS? If not, then why is the 3rd party witness election still on MUFON’s “Report a UFO” form on the MUFON web site?

3. Is the MUFON Board of Directors willing to give an accurate history including publicly releasing all supporting documentation of the MUFON-BAASS legal contract that encompasses the entire project period?

4. What is MUFON’s current relationship to BAASS and Mr. Bigelow?

The MUFON Board of Directors may be in pursuit of their own truth, but the real truth has an odd way of surfacing even after many years, as the CIA-Mafia affair shows. How can those in the field of Ufology seek disclosure from outside if they are not willing to seek disclosure from within first?

The choices made by the MUFON Board during the MUFON-BAASS project demands complete openness and transparency so that the conspiracy theory behind the MUFON-BAASS relationship is put to rest.

MUFON’s leadership should practice what it preaches and leave no details hidden if it wishes MUFON to retain any semblance of respectability in this field already filled with enough unanswered questions and shadowy characters and organizations. It is time for MUFON to sweep its own house clean.

Who is the author of this piece? It hardly proves MUFON to be an "obvious disinformation campaign run by the US government." It reads more like yet another example of the internecine squabbling and name calling that has long characterized ufology.

Thanks, it just genuinely surprises me how many people fall for the same MUFON BS over and over again especially on this site.

The majority of the time I guarantee they submit their own doctored photos for review and release to the public. Then they see how many sheeple flock to the supposed "evidence" and support such obvious hoaxes.

They are a "filter" organization placed by the US govt. not only to spread disinfo., but also to collect and contain the real info.

It is at the bottom of the piece, James Carrion.

The sheer fact the FAA states this in reference to the UFO phenomenon makes it questionable at best:

"Persons wanting to report UFO/unexplained phenomena activity should contact a UFO/ unexplained phenomena reporting data collection center, such as Bigelow Aerospace Advanced Space Studies." -FAA advises Air Traffic Controllers

MUFON is just an idiotic bullshit organization, and you really don't need to read any more into it than that. They may have been somebody years ago, but now it's just pure bullshit for profit with all the shit they sell. They even promote hoaxed UFO reports in the media just for media exposure. I wouldn't call them if a UFO landed on my front lawn.
