During the 1980s, several members of the UFO research community were targeted as part of one or more disinformation campaigns that aimed to plant false information. Ranging from stories of UFO crashes and cattle mutilations, to underground bases at places like Dulce, New Mexico, and even an ongoing war with hostile extraterrestrials, several ideas were successfully presented to UFO researchers which have continued to proliferate through ufology into the present day.
Joining us to discuss UFO disinformation and its influence over the decades is Adam Gorightly, author of the book Saucers, Spooks and Kooks: UFO Disinformation in the Age of Aquarius. Gorightly gives us a powerful overview of the ufological scene in the 80s and 90s, and reveals the origins of the infamous “Dulce Base” mythos this week on The Micah Hanks Program.
