As the saying from many centuries ago declares, “In the midst of life, we are in death.”
Timothy Green Beckley, Tim Swartz and I were completely absorbed in the book project that was to become “Dulce Warriors: Aliens Battle for Earth’s Domination.” It was the usual back and forth between new material, proofreading and illustrating the various chapters and sections, a routine the three of us were used to after working as a team for nearly twenty years.
Then fate, Father Time, or whatever name you wish to give it, took Tim Beckley from us before the project was completely finished. As a tribute to our much revered publisher and editor, Tim Swartz and I decided to complete the project – just the two of us – along with more than 20 other contributors. “Dulce Warriors” is now available on Amazon.
The book opens with tributes from a few of Tim B’s friends and coworkers, in which they offer memories of how Tim helped to guide their career and gave them an opportunity to explore various aspects of UFOs and other paranormal subjects.
Tim Beckley also authored the first chapter, entitled “A Terrifying Introduction: What Happened On Our Way To Dulce,” in which he presents a laundry list of frightful rumors about the underground joint human/alien installation reputed to be located in Dulce, New Mexico, which is near the Four Corners region of the American Southwest.
“When we speak of Dulce,” Beckley writes, “we speak of: Monster Factories, Alien Cloning, Underground Tunnel Systems, MK-Ultra Soldiers – Disguised as Greys, Aliens Torturing Humans, Children Disappearing, Government Germ Warfare Weapons, Human and Animal Mutilations, and the Suicide Or Murder Of Numerous Researchers Associated With Dulce.”
A SCIENTIST STUMBLES INTO THE UNKNOWN
But where did it all start?
Beckley felt the whole macabre saga started with an engineer by the name of Paul Bennewitz, who believed aliens were communicating with him over a radio receiver. He also observed and photographed UFOs flying over nearby Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico, specifically the nuclear storage facility there, called the Monzano Storage Area, the country’s largest underground nuclear storage facility.
Perhaps the most vocal and visible expert on the Dulce mysteries is Norio Hayakawa, who has written many articles on the subject and appeared numerous times on radio and television programs dealing with the town. Hayakawa says the proximity to Albuquerque is very important because it is where German scientists were first transferred in 1945, immediately after World War II, through the Operation Paperclip Program. In addition to German scientists, skilled intelligence officers were imported as well.
According to Hayakawa, “Dulce is a location filled with mysteries that are still ongoing. I believe it is far more interesting than Roswell, Yes, Roswell was significant in that it is the alleged location of the crash of extraterrestrial vehicles in 1947. But, you know, that was it. But Dulce is something different. It is an ongoing thing that is still taking place.”
Dulce has the highest percentage per population of UFO sightings, Hayakawa says. Almost the entire population has experienced a sighting of strange objects in the past three to four decades.
THE GOVERNMENT TAKES AN INTEREST
But back to Bennewitz. The story goes that Bennewitz was a scientist living near Kirtland Air Force Base. In 1979, he began to observe the flights of mysterious objects from his home and to photograph them as well. When he attempted to report to official channels on the strange aerial activity he was witnessing, he immediately drew the interest of the government.
One theory is that the bewildered Bennewitz was seeing test flights of what are called “UAVs,” or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, pilotless aircraft that are remotely controlled either on the ground or programmed by onboard computer systems. Whatever the secret flights involved, the government did not want Bennewitz to know the truth.
It is alleged that the government brainwashed Bennewitz into believing that he was witnessing flights of alien discs over Kirtland Air Force Base. Bennewitz received a message somehow, either by radio or over his computer, saying that there is a secret base 150 miles north of Albuquerque in the mountains underground. Bennewitz was provided with the exact coordinates of this alien base, which, of course, turned out to be Dulce.
Bennewitz was never able to prove either the existence of aliens over Kirtland or the government’s manipulations of his attempts to document the mysterious overflights. He sank deeper and deeper into an increasingly paranoid frame of mind, unable to cope with the bizarre scenario in which he had been ensnared.
REVEALING HELL ITSELF
While Bennewitz’s personal struggles certainly deserve our sympathy, his revelations about the underground base at Dulce were nothing short of spectacular. The rumors that have circulated since then are full of nightmare scenarios, like huge vats of human and animal body parts used in genetic experiments, perhaps in further efforts to create an alien-human hybrid species or an even stranger chimera that is part human and part animal.
It is speculated that the government and the aliens may be working to create a “perfect soldier,” one that is capable of fearlessness and obedience beyond that of a normal GI grunt.
Additionally, there is the case of a female abductee who claimed that she was in one of the lower sections of Dulce when an alien walked right through the wall and raped her. That kind of forced copulation may also be a component of the genetic experimentation said to take place in Dulce, the goal being to impregnate the human female with alien seed and see what is produced, a scenario already familiar from other stories of abduction.
BOTH HUMANS AND ALIENS TAKE UP ARMS
Bill Birnes, the noted author, researcher and television personality, says he doubts that Dulce has any genuine alien presence. But he did pass along what has become an incident repeatedly referred to in discussions of Dulce, the “Firefight at Dulce.”
”The story goes that way back in the 1980s,” Birnes said, “the extraterrestrials were giving a lecture to some scientists. In that demonstration, a lot of the scientists were getting sick because of what the aliens were doing. So some of our military guards, who were prohibited from entering the area and prohibited from carrying any kind of weapons into the area, suddenly burst in to protect the scientists.
“And the aliens reacted,” Birnes continued, “by basically turning their weapons on the security guards, killing them. Some aliens were killed and some scientists were killed. Supposedly we all worked very hard to try and patch it together so there wouldn’t be any more incidents like that.”
“Dulce Warriors” also contains chapters with other similar real life sci-fi overtones and the stories of whistleblowers who have since died, many under suspicious circumstances.
WHAT SECRETS DIED WITH HIM?
Tim Swartz provides the story of Phil Schneider, who claimed to be an ex-government structural engineer who was involved in the building of underground military bases around the country. Schneider also said he was one of only three people to survive the incident between the alien greys and U.S. forces that Bill Birnes describes above.
For two years prior to his death, Schneider had been on a lecture tour talking about government cover-ups, black budgets and UFOs. His ex-wife, Cynthia Drayer, believes that Schneider was murdered because he publicly revealed the truth about the U.S. government’s involvement with UFOs, which he said dated back to the Eisenhower administration.
To get the details of this fascinating story, as told by Swartz with the assistance of Drayer, it is probably better to read the chapter in the actual book, which will provide much more spine-tinging detail than is possible in this article.
In guiding Tim Swartz and me through the editorial process, Tim B. displays his usual sure hand in selecting the people to contribute their work to the book, as well as covering the subject of Dulce thoroughly and with a vast array of on-the-scene participants, rumors and researchers. People who are unfamiliar with the subject of Dulce will get a valuable education in the subject and it will likewise be appreciated by those who have heard some of this before.
When Tim Swartz and I put “Dulce Warriors: Aliens Battle for Earth’s Domination” to bed with the printer, we agreed that Tim B. would be proud.
