Billy Meier and the CIA (Part 2)

Part 1 is located here:

So many intelligence agencies were secretly getting copies of Billy Meier’s photos and films from his processing laboratory in Switzerland in the 1970s and 1980s that often the CIA’s copy was from the end of the queue. That was the advice that respected UFO researcher, Wendelle Stevens, received from an informant in the know who contacted him in February 1989.

The informant, a former American intelligence operative in retirement who was happy to sign his letter with his real name (though censored by Stevens), said that in the early days of Meier’s fame American intelligence had looked him over “from asshole to appetite” in an investigation of the “light touch variety, meaning use no force, make no scars, and leave no traces of the investigation,” the man wrote. “Which is to say play tourist, pack a camera, and take a lot of pictures, tell a lot of lies, and ask a lot of questions. Most country’s intelligence systems get pissed if they catch you screwing off on their turf. So do not accuse us of any break-ins, and that type of thing, because it happened back in the days when Billy was in fact liberal with what he gave away.”

“In the early days if you showed up at Billy’s place knowing enough about good manners to bring as much food as you eat, wash as many dishes as you get dirty, and just help around the house or yard a bit, it was possible to get all the UFO information desired from Billy and be treated as a respected guest.”

The man said that CIA checks of the film copies they received from the Swiss laboratory established that there was “hanky panky going on at the processing plant or in the mail system some place. Someone else was getting off with the first copy of the negatives most of the time. Several times, according to the experts, our copy of the negative would be about the fifth one.”

That there was a free-for-all trade in the steady stream of material coming from the Meier contacts in the 1970s and 80s was also underlined by an incident in London during one of the ‘debriefings’ that American investigators, Stevens and Lee and Brit Elders, had on one of their return journey’s from researching Meier and his followers at their farm. While most of their ‘official’ contact in their 8-year investigation of Meier was with the CIA station in London (see “Billy Meier and the CIA – Part One), Lee Elders was approached by a secret service representative of another country in the British capital and invited out for a meeting at a restaurant. “Lee decided to keep the appointment to see what this man might want. He was surprised to hear the man offer to exchange some of the information we had missed…for copies of some of the material we got to first which they had missed in their collection efforts.” All this backroom maneuvering disturbed the American team. It had “already proved dangerous,” Stevens wrote, “and we didn’t want any more of it.”

The easy access that the CIA had been given in the early days at Billy’s home was gone by the early 1980s. Assassination attempts on Meier and the steady leakage of some of his best photos from his albums caused the hapless contactee to hunker down and rely closely on his circle of proven friends. Stevens said in a UFO conference in America in the 1990s that the CIA officer in London who interviewed them had sought to enlist their help because the agency could no longer get an information source in the tight circle of confidantes around Meier.

The informant’s letter to Stevens in 1989 expressed the CIA’s amazement at the privations that Meier’s alleged Pleiadian visitors put their man through in the arrangements surrounding the ET’s rendezvous’ with the one-armed contactee in the hills and woods around Hinwil and Hinterschmidruti. Astonishment was expressed at the “screwball hours” that Meier had to observe as well as the weather conditions chosen. “Billy probably holds the record for more bad weather contacts than anyone else,” he wrote. “His case had some screwball features but it had some very good pictures.”

This impression of extreme hardship for Meier in the timing and travel difficulty involved riding one-handed on his moped motor bike in the dark to isolated landing sites is confirmed by the extensive contact notes that Meier kept and which Stevens later published. Time and again Meier is summoned (telepathically, confirmed by 10 quick rings on his telephone) from his bed at all hours of the night, often in pouring rain, to be taken up for meetings which were far from inspirational. They often involved an ear-bashing about why the cash-strapped contactee with heavy family commitments and a rocky marriage, wasn’t out on the lecture circuit taking the Pleiadian message public. The contact notes showed that Meier consistently appealed to them to see his side of the story. That the man persisted with these irksome exchanges despite a surprising level of intolerance and lack of sympathy from the visitors living comfortably in spaceships rather than in the hand-to-mouth scramble of Earth life, speaks volumes for Meier’s infatuation with the main visitor, a woman called Semjase.

It appears the ET’s were monitoring the intense official surveillance that Meier was under and sometimes figured that meetings in the dead of night in the foulest of weather up the steepest of hill tracks stood the best chance of going undisturbed.

Stevens’ correspondent said that when he had retired from government service many years before, the military had developed UFO detection devices that worked efficiently and could determine direction of travel. The early devices were quite large but “by now could be the size of a pack of smokes, and give direction along with the make and model of the UFO. In the late 50s we could differentiate between about four types of UFOs based on how they affected our devices,” he wrote.

“If I remember some of the information coming out of Billy’s area, the DALs would normally send out a couple of other ships to scout the area some several days in advance, before the contact ship showed up. At that time the devices the Swiss had could tell the difference between the two types of ships normally used. It could also tell the difference between several of the small, ball-shaped probes that might be sent out.”
