Guest Jack Brewer got interested in the many overlaps between NICAP and intelligence agencies. Then, through the FOIA, various archives, newspaper clippings and so on, it got increasingly interesting, to the point that he wrote about it. Frankly, Jack was surprised how much material he has obtained that suggests the CIA facilitated the birth of NICAP.
Bio: Jack Brewer writes "The UFO Trail", a blog dedicated to publishing credible info on incredible topics. Brewer's research interests include alleged alien abduction, the intelligence community, and related social dynamics. He is the author of "The Greys Have Been Framed: Exploitation in the UFO Community" which explores the ways deception, sensationalism, and questionable ethics characterize the UFO genre and distort public perception of the UFO phenomenon. Activities of credulous investigators of alleged alien abduction are considered, as are the roles of intelligence agencies in the theatrics, including thought provocative relationships and similarities between the UFO and intelligence communities. With interviews and insights from James Carrion, Leah Haley, Dr. Tyler Kokjohn, Simone Mendez, Carol Rainey, Emma Woods, and others, "The Greys Have Been Framed" takes readers through the exploitation of ufology as perpetrated by charlatans, intelligence officials, and researchers harboring unclear motives. The circumstances, existing from the very outset of the modern-day UFO phenomenon, prove relevant no matter what personal opinion one may hold on the mystery of UFOs and their alleged occupants.
