That's the topic of my new Mysterious Universe article which begins...
"In November 1991, a Nebraskan priest named Ray Boeche
had a clandestine meeting with a pair of physicists working on a top
secret program for the U.S. Department of Defense. Both men were deeply
worried and were looking for advice and guidance from Boeche on the
project in which they were immersed.
"The classified operation, Boeche was told, revolved around attempts
by certain elements of the DoD to contact what were termed 'Non-Human
Entities,' or NHEs. Most people might call them extraterrestrials,
aliens, or in terms of the field of Ufology and popular culture – 'the
Grays.' For a while, the DoD referred to them in those terms, too. But
not for long. As Ray Boeche listened carefully to what his Deep Throat
sources told him, he came to realize that the Pentagon was dabbling in
decidedly dangerous areas."
