Who are the Controllers?

In this episode, we’re looking at “The Controllers”–an essay/white paper written by Martin Cannon in the early 90s. It concerns the possible connections between government mind control experimentation and the alien abduction phenomenon. I’ve linked to lots of stuff below, so be sure to check it out if this is a strand of the–broadly construed–“alien” “encounter” mystery that you find interesting.

Me, I find it terrifying.

  1. I’ve been investigating Cannons work for the last 2 years. I forwarded Jack Brewer the threatening message left on Cannons voice mail from Victoria Lacas.

    Cannon is living in Santa Barbara!!

    Cannon, Helmut Lammer and Kathy Kasten were all shut down by John Alexander. They all ran into early residence when investigating abductions, not because of the UFO subject, but because it’s been cloaked to Mind Control and behavioural control projects, Hypnotic Couriers or Programmed Agents and Biological and Genetic engineering research.

    Good luck looking for Cannon!
