Disturbing Secrets: Bill English and Project Blue Book Report 13 ...by Bill Knell
After many phone conversations with Bill English during the late 1980s and early 1990s, I came to the conclusion that he was the real deal. That’s a rare find in a field filled with people that imagine themselves to be former Directors of MJ-12, Alien Saviors and Pleadian Royalty. Apart from his attention to detail and willingness to produce credentials, Bill had much more to lose than gain by coming forward with the story of Blue Book Report 13. Considering the controversies that grew out of the MJ-12 documents, who would want that kind of negative attention?
Project Bluebook (1949-1969) was the official U.S. Government investigation into UFOs that replaced Projects Grudge (1949-1951) and Sign (1947-1949). Headquartered at Wright-Patterson AFB, the investigations were handled by the U.S. Air Force. Without going into a lot of detail that would distract from the subject, there were thirteen reports prepared from the raw information gathered by those investigations. The reports were numbered 1-12 and 14.
Report 14 contradicted conclusions reached by the others. 1-12 left wiggle room for attacking the credibility of UFO Witnesses. 14 pointed out that less than 10% of the UFO sightings or encounters reported to Bluebook could be attributed to unstable or unreliable witnesses. That made everyone wonder if there was a Report 13 and what it had to say. If there was and it was filled with secrets, why skip a number? Why not give it a different designation and lock it away in some forgotten file drawer? The answer to those questions has to do with the military and bureaucratic mindset. They would rather spend millions of dollars trying to deny or discredit a Report 13, instead of just changing the number.
Enter Bill English, the son of an Arizona State Legislator and a former Captain in the U.S. Army Green Berets. Bill was honorably discharged while overseas in 1973. He remained in Germany with his wife until she was transferred to RAF Chicksands" Department of Defense Schools. Bill’s wife was a GS-9 (Teacher). After the couple arrived at Chicksands, English says he ran into a former Commanding Officer working for the NSA. He offered Bill a job at a listening post known as the ‘elephant cage.’ English accepted the position and remained there until July of 1976.
Bill describes his duties at the listening post:
“It was my job to analyze the translated transcripts of radio transmissions that had been received from Soviet bloc nations through the listening post at Chicksands. We monitored military frequencies mostly. I had to assign what we called a probability rating to the material and create a possible scenario that might result from the transmission or might have resulted in the transmission. Say, for example, if we received information that so-and-so was on vacation somewhere, and then we heard a phone call made from a certain location, we"d compare the two and get an indication whether or not this gentleman really was on vacation or not.”
Near the end of June, 1976, English received a 625 page report to examine and evaluate. He identifies it as Grudge/Blue Book Report 13. After examining everything, Bill leaves us with the impression that he assigned a high probability rating to the report which indicated that UFOs were of extraterrestrial origin. He says that decision was influenced by the inclusion of photos associated with a classified military mission that occurred around May of 1970. That mission involved English.
Bill English was a member of Special Forces serving in Vietnam when his team was dispatched to a B-52 crash site in Laos. On arrival, he found the aircraft intact with little visible damage and hatches sealed. After blasting their way in, the team found the crew dead. They were still in their seats and harnesses, but ‘horribly mutilated.’ Despite the damage to their bodies, there was very little blood present on the floor of the aircraft. After photographing the scene and collecting items on their retrieval list, the Special Forces team set off charges causing bombs still on board the aircraft to explode and incinerate the bodies inside.
Apart from the inclusion of photos taken by the Special Forces Team in Laos, the report contained some very upsetting and disturbing information. The human mutilation case of Sergeant Lovette is a good example. In March of 1956, Air Force Sergeant Jonathan P. Lovette was with Major William Cunningham of the United States Air Force Missile Command. The two were at White Sands Missile Range looking for debris from a missile test. Sergeant Lovette was separated from Major Cunningham for a brief period of time when Cunningham heard him scream.
Cunningham ran over a dune and saw Lovette being dragged aboard a disc-shaped object by a snake-like device wrapped around his legs. Cunningham ran back to his vehicle and radioed news of the incident to Mission Control. Search parties were dispatched to find Lovette. After Cunningham was debriefed, he was admitted to the White Sands Base Dispensary for observation. Three days into the search, Lovette’s nude body was located ten miles downrange.
English later commented on the condition of Lovette’s body on audio cassette (abridged):
“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… (Censored for disturbing content)… 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… 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.”
Less than a month after he first received the Grudge/Blue Book Report 13, English reported to work only to find himself being escorted to the Base Commander’s Office by security personnel. Colonel Robert Black informed him that his services were no longer needed and that he was being immediately expelled from the UK. English was placed on an aircraft at RAF Lakenheath and flown back to the USA without the opportunity to contact his wife or anyone else. Once home, he was given a plane ticket back to Arizona. Bill’s wife was left with the impression that he had simply abandoned her.
Two years later, Colonel Black and his Operations Sergeant appeared at Bill’s place of business in Tucson, AZ. Black told English that they had also been given the boot by the military because of Grudge/Blue Book Report 13 and that he had a plan to get even with them. Black claimed to have information about an enormous alien craft that was buried at the White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico. He wanted English to help him and his former Operations Sergeant find it and expose the Government Cover-Up. Bill agreed to help, sold his business and threw his money in with theirs.
English describes what happened during the hunt for the huge flying saucer:
“We purchased a van, which we outfitted with desert tires, marine radar, listening devices, magnetometers and some pretty flaky video cameras of the time. We rendezvoused and traveled along the perimeter of WSMR, and in certain areas we would cross into the test range and look around. Ultimately we wound up in White Sands National Park. From there we drove onto the range. Toward sunset, I was walking on the range about 1,000 yards in front of the vehicle. Black and his sergeant were both in it at the time. I heard a rather familiar sound, and screamed "Incoming!" and went face first into the dirt. The next thing I know, the van is blowing up. I think they fired a rocket. Then there are helicopters all over the place, and I am running for my life, literally. I made it back to Tucson on foot.”
After a series of quickly calculated steps and help from friends, English went into hiding. By the time he contacted me in the late 1980s, there had been several serious attempts on his life. To his credit, English began telling his story to most any serious UFO Researcher that would listen. This got his name out before the public and made the possibility of any additional assassination attempts unlikely. However, English still had one extremely dangerous adversary…himself.
Bill English was cautious when it came to revealing certain facts, but those instances were too few and far between. He came across to me as a guy that was recounting his experiences from memory without concern for what anyone thought about it. Most criticisms of English or claimed contradictions count on the ‘official version’ from government sources and tend to be cancelled out by an equal amount of verifications. In the end, it’s what Bill English read about in Grudge/Blue Book Report 13 that tips the scales in his favor.
Apart from any revelations by Bill English, it just made sense that a classified version of the Project Blue Book Report would exist in one form or another. After all, intelligence data is only as good as someone’s ability to interpret it. Some sort of reference material would have to be available for that purpose. In such a case, no points would be given for political correctness or watered-down information. While some of the assertions made by English and included in the report may be disturbing, they are the kind of ’in your face’ facts that would be found in a classified reference work. They are also not exclusive. Stories of this type exist within the files of many UFO investigators.
I recall being castigated by the UFO research community in New York during the 1980s after revealing that a number of already deceased bodies in local morgues and funeral homes were being strangely mutilated in parts of New York City and Westchester County. The incidents were too widespread and numerous to be the work of a few twisted individuals or some local cult and coincided with multiple UFO sightings. While looking into that, I discovered that a larger than usual number of missing children cases were popping up in the same areas in conjunction with UFO Sightings. That coincides with another case mentioned in Grudge/Blue Book Report 13.
English recounts the Darlington Farm Case as mentioned in Report 13 on audio cassette (abridged):
“October 1953. Man, wife and 13 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. 13 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 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. The mother and father were picked up by Air Force (personnel) and all personal belongings and possessions were loaded into U.S. 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 CE 3 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.”
The one thing that most critics and skeptics miss when they randomly attack UFO Witnesses and Cases is the commonality factor. That factor plays a big part in my belief that Grudge/Blue Book Report 13 is real and that English had access to it. The experiences and revelations of Bill English are disturbing on many levels, but that doesn’t make them untrue. The truth remains the truth whether we are intellectually able to accept it or not.
