[Note regarding date: Project Blue Book Report 12 was dated 1953.09.30. Its eleven predecessors were an average of about three months apart. Report 14 was dated 1955.05.05. See page iv of this link for more details.]
THE UFO LEGEND
One of the most prevalent of these legends beside the Grudge/Blue Book Report #13 is the Dulce Report of Paul Bennewitz.

[Transcript of Bill Cooper lecture of 1989.11.17 in Los Angeles]
It wasn’t long after [a 1966 Dabob Bay UFO incident] I was trained by Naval Security in intelligence. I was sent to Vietnam… When I left Vietnam I was eventually attached to the headquarters staff of the commander in chief of the United States Pacific fleet at Makalapa, Hawaii, which is a little hill overlooking Pearl Harbor, it’s a beautiful white building up there, and I was specifically attached to the intelligence briefing team of the commander in chief of the United States Pacific fleet.
It was during this tour of duty that, in the course of my duties, documents were placed in my hands that were so unbelievable and so incredible that it took me quite a while to adjust to the fact that what I was seeing was real. Now, for those of you who don’t understand how I could come to see this information, let me give you a little short course in security clearance and the need to know and how you get to see classified information if you’re in the military or in the government – it doesn’t matter which, the rules are the same.
Number one: you need a security clearance, and you’ve got to have clearance at the level that the information you want to see is classified at. In this instance it was classified “Top Secret, MAJIC, Restricted Information,” which I came to find out later is the highest security classification in the nation. To get that type of clearance, all you have to have is a Federal Bureau of Investigation background check, which takes about six months, and they send federal agents to your home, to your old schools, to all your teachers, to your friends, to everybody you put down on your security clearance forms, to all your old addresses, your neighbors, everybody that you’ve worked for, and it’s embarrassing because they don’t tell them what they’re checking on. They just show them their identification and start asking questions, and that’s when you find out who’s your friend and who’s not, because a lot of people get scared and think, “Bill just robbed a bank and I’m not talking to him anymore.”
Now once you get that it’s called a “BI”, and for those of you who have received a copy of my service record, look on the first page, the DD-214 where it says “Security Clearance,” you will see the term “BI”. That’s a “Bureau of Investigation” clearance. Now at that point, you have the clearance for everything including top secret and above. What determines what you get to see is your need to know, and the job that you have determines what your need to know is.
I was assigned to the intelligence briefing team of the commander in chief of the United States Pacific fleet, who had to know everything concerning his area of operations, which was one half of the earth’s surface; the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, and all the land masses in between…
Because of this, and you have no conception of the amount of material and information that an area commander has to know, it’s unbelievable, and he has to keep track of this, he has to keep on top of it. He has to know what’s happening, he has to make the right decisions. Because it’s almost humanly impossible for anyone to do that, they have what’s called a briefing team, and it’s our job to make sure that he has the correct information, all the time, on a 24-hour basis. And every morning, between eight and nine am, we would give a briefing which covered everything that happened in the previous 24 hours, and everything scheduled to happen in the next 24 hours, and all the pertinent intelligence reports that we had received since the last briefing that he needed to know and that his staff members needed to know. Occasionally we would get messages marked “Top Secret, MAJIC, Restricted Information”, and it would be coded in such a way that all you had were answers to questions which you didn’t know what the questions were, so you really didn’t know what the message was all about.
But eventually I found myself in possession, holding two documents: one called Project Grudge, another one called Operation Majority. Project Grudge contained the history of alien involvement since around 1936, and it began talking about Germany’s involvement with a crashed disk that they had recovered in 1936 and [of which they] were attempting to duplicate the technology. They were not successful…
It wasn’t until 1947 that we were able to capture a craft, a whole craft, not all together but it was everything. And that occurred near the city of Roswell, New Mexico. There were dead aliens recovered from the craft. In Project Grudge I saw photographs of these dead aliens, of the craft, I saw photographs of live aliens, I saw photographs of autopsies, internal organs, I saw photographs of the alien designated EB (or EBE) which was held in captivity from 1949 until June the 2nd, 1952 when he died. I saw the history of what they had been able to at that time put together, from incidents in the 1800s which involved aliens and their craft.
I saw the names of projects. I saw a project that was to fly recovered alien craft that had been recovered intact and undamaged, and some of them were recovered intact and undamaged, and how that happened I have no idea. It was called Project Red Light and first was conducted from the Tonopah test range in the Nevada test site and then was moved to a specially built area, ordered built by President Eisenhower, called Area-51, code-named Dreamland, in the Groom Dry Lake area of the Nevada test site, by secret executive order. It doesn’t exist officially…
The project to fly, test fly these craft, was ongoing until some time in 1962, when a craft blew up not far from the test site, in the air, and the explosion was seen over a three-state area. The pilots were killed: they had no idea what had happened or why the craft blew up, but they put Project Red Light on hold until a later date when the aliens supplied us with three craft and personnel to help us learn how to fly these craft. That project is ongoing and we now have… alien craft that we are flying.

In 1976, while working as a data analyst for the United States Department of Defence Security Services Command at RAF Chicksands, England, I had the task of analyzing a copy of what was entitled Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13.
Ostensibly the government published Blue Book Reports # 1 through 12 and 14 on to the last report, but claims that it in fact never published a report numbered 13. One of the many excuses given by the Air Force was that there was never a number 13 because of superstitions about the number. One of the many arguments against this excuse is that the government had never before cared one whit for superstition, and why should they all of a sudden do so now?
Several years went by with this being the pat excuse until June of 1977, when the report came across my desk at Security Services with a disposition order to read and analyze. The report was an annotated version, with photographs and various scientific data reports on findings of research that was contained within the publication. Among the photographs were several of aliens that were being autopsied and some that appeared to be alive. Much of the data it contained dealt with the autopsy findings and a great deal of technological data. Much of the technological data dealt with the research performed on the recovered vehicles or space craft and there was some mention of animal and human mutilation, with the report of several incidences…
I am the focal point for several of the nasty rumors that have been flying concerning my validity and the validity of my reported viewing of Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13…
[I acted] as consultant and representative of APRO for Barry and Enwright Productions. Barry and Enwright were in the process of producing a pilot program for television entitled Strange as it Seems. This was to be their answer to the then popular program, That’s Incredible. Unknown to me at the time, they had also contacted Dr J Allen Hynek of the Center for UFO Studies, and whose name figured so prominently in the Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13, as it was he who had also read the report and stated that although he had not seen the evidence firsthand, [he] felt that everything in the report was true.
Dr Hynek and I sat in the green room for the better part of an hour while waiting for our appearance on the stage, and I asked him about the report and why it was that he and the government denied its existence. At first he tried to tell me that I didn’t know what I was talking about, and told me not to bother him. It wasn’t until I became angry and told him that I had seen Report # 13 and analyzed it for the government while working for Air Force Security Services in England, and that his signed initials and signature [were] all over the damned thing, so not to even try denying it to me, that he finally admitted to its existence. But he also said that he would never admit to it publicly and would call me a liar should I try to get him involved in anything. I asked him the standard question: ‘Why me? Why was I the one to have to analyze it and lose everything?’ His answer: ‘Somebody had to do it’…
I then contacted John Lear, posing as an attorney representing “Mr English’s interest”, in order to find out what it was John wanted with me. After talking with John for a few minutes I hung up and began to consider the possibilities and what to do about it. After several more weeks I then contacted John and he ultimately came to see me in Virginia, where we discussed Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13…
Another modern-day legend is that of myself and my viewing of Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13, of which you’re already aware.
A NEW ALLY
Once again, time has proven to be an ally in that evidence has come to light over the past several years that has substantiated everything that I initially said about my viewing of Report # 13. In addition, one other person, William M Cooper, formerly of the United States Naval Intelligence section, CINCPAC, has come forward and admitted viewing an earlier version of the Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13.
With the exception of some minor differences that are explainable by the fact that the copy I saw was an annotated version, Mr Cooper’s and my comparisons match almost perfectly. And I might add that Bill Cooper and I were talking about all of this long before we knew that either existed.
While Cooper saw his version of the documents in the early seventies while working with the Pacific fleet, I saw my version of the very same documents while in the employ of the US Air Force Security Services Command at RAF Chicksands in England in the mid-seventies. I, however, was the first to speak out publicly when I attended a lecture given by one Stanton Friedman, a nuclear scientist, who at the time was devoted to finding the truth about UFOs and the possible implications of their existence…
In the later part of June of 1977, I reviewed and analysed the document now known as the Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13. In this report I viewed several hundred photographs, reports, incidents, and comments made by certain individuals who had themselves in turn read the report. At that time I had no knowledge whatsoever of Bill Cooper, and he had no knowledge of Bill English.
Bill Cooper, on the other hand, had read his version of Grudge/Blue Book Report # 13 four years previously. Without us knowing one another, nor having ever been in contact until 1988, the information that we both had matched almost exactly with a few certain exceptions. And those exceptions can be accounted for in that the version I read was annotated and thusly contained additional information that Cooper’s did not.
Additionally, even though neither of us have been able to produce the document itself, other information and records have come to light that upholds the veracity of our claim.

[Project Grudge/Blue Book Report 13] gave clear indication of reports of human mutilations. Most notable was a case witnessed by Air Force personnel in which an Air Force Sgt E-6 by the name of Jonathan P Lovette was observed being taken captive aboard what appeared to be a UFO at the White Sands missile test range in New Mexico. This abduction took place in March of 1956 at about 03.00 local time and was witnessed by Major William Cunningham of the United States Air Force Missile Command near Holloman Air Force Base.
Major Cunningham and Sgt Lovette were out in a field downrange from the launch sites looking for debris from a missile test when Sgt Lovette went over the ridge of a small sand dune and was out of sight for a time. Major Cunningham heard Sgt Lovette scream in what was described as terror or agony. The major, thinking Lovette had been bitten by a snake or something, ran over the crest of the dune and saw Sgt Lovette being dragged into what appeared to him and was described as being a silvery disk-like object which hovered in the air approximately fifteen to twenty feet. Major Cunningham described what appeared to be a long snake-like object which was wrapped around the sergeant’s legs and was dragging him to the craft. Major Cunningham admittedly froze as the sergeant was dragged inside the disk and observed the disk going up into the sky very quickly. Major Cunningham got on the jeep radio and reported the incident to Missile Control, whereupon Missile Control confirmed a radar sighting. Search parties went into the desert looking for Sgt Lovette. Major Cunningham’s report was taken and he was admitted to the White Sands base dispensary for observation.
The search for Sgt Lovette continued for three days, at the end of which his nude body was found approximately ten miles downrange. The body had been mutilated; the tongue had been removed from the lower portion of the jaw. An incision had been made just under the tip of the chin and extended all the way back to the esophagus and larynx. He had been emasculated and his eyes had been removed. Also, his anus had been removed and there were comments in the report on the apparent surgical skill of the removal of these items including the genitalia. The report commented that the anus and the genitalia had been removed “as though a plug” which in the case of the anus extended all the way to the colon. There was no sign of blood within the system. The initial autopsy report confirmed that the system had been completely drained of blood and that there was no vascular collapse due to death by bleeding. Sub-comment was added that this was unusual because in anybody who dies of bleeding or in the case of complete blood loss there is always vascular collapse. Also noted was that when the body was found there were a number of dead predatory-type birds within the area who apparently had died after trying to partake of the sergeant’s body. There were a number of extremely grisly black and white photographs. From all indications the body had been exposed to the elements for at least a day or two. The New Mexico sun in the desert is extremely hot and debilitating under normal circumstances…

One case especially noted [from Project Grudge/Blue Book Report 13] and remembered very vividly [by Bill English] was entitled “Darlington Farm case” out of Ohio. Case apparently took place in October 1953. Man, wife and thirteen-year-old son were sitting down at dinner table. As they sat there the lights in the farm house began to dim. Dogs and animals raised ruckus on outside. Thirteen-year-old boy got up from dinner table to see what was going on. Called his mother and father to come look at the funny light in the sky. Father and mother went out onto the porch. When they got out on the porch one of the dogs broke loose from leash beside house and came running around front. Boy began chasing it into the open field as mother and father watched the light come down from the sky. They described it as a round ball of fire, and it began to hover over the field where the boy and dog had run to. As they stood and watched, the mother and father heard the boy start screaming for help, whereupon the father grabbed his shotgun which was right next to the door and began to run out into the field with the mother following. When the father got to the field he saw his son being carried away by what looked like little men, into this huge fiery-looking object. As it took off the father fired several rounds at the object, to no avail. They found the dog – its head had been crushed – but no sign of the boy or any other footprints of the little men who apparently carried him off. Father immediately called the Darlington police and they immediately came out to investigate. The official report read that the boy had run off and was lost in the forest which bordered the farm. Within 48 hours the Air Force made the determination that the family was to be relocated and the mother and father were picked up by Air Force Intelligence and all personal belonging and possessions were loaded into US Air Force trucks and moved to a northwestern relocation site.
The mother was in shock and had to go through a great deal of psychotherapy and deprogramming, as did father. One interesting aspect about this case was classification under Air Force Report which read it was a genuine CE3 and that for the good of national security the mother and father had been relocated to relocation zones Z21-14. Not sure whether this indicated map grid coordinates or latitude-longitude. According to the report there were at least four relocation sites across the United States. Depending upon which type of encounter these people had, the report indicated that there were extensive medical facilities available at the relocation sites to deal with all medical emergencies up to and including radiation poisoning. The report mentioned a site located in the Utah-Nevada area, but no indication of its purpose or what it was for.
