MYSTERIOUS WHITE POWDER FALLS ON A SCOTTISH SCHOOL

"An investigation was launched in the village of Lairy in Sutherland," Scotland, UK, Thursday, February 15, 2001, "after pupils in the local primary school were showered with a mysterious white substance."

"The crystal-like powder appeared to have fallen in a bag and burst on impact in the school's playground."

"The investigation is concentrating on aircraft which had been operating in the area, such as crop-dusters or other commercial or military planes. The school, which has 60 pupils, was closed immediately after the incident and was cordoned off by officers of the Northern Constabulary."

"Around 35 pupils were affected by the powder, which has been gathered and sent for forensic examination."

"Elayne Grimes, spokeswoman for Northern Constabulary, said The kids felt itchy but were otherwise unharmed. Some clothing has been removed for analysis by Grampian police labs in Aberdeen.'"

"'At present, it is a bit of a mystery where it came from or what it is. We are waiting to have the powder analysed. We do not know if it came from military aircraft or crop-dusting aircraft that operate in the area at certain times of the year. dusting the forests. Basically, we have no idea what the substance is until it has been analysed.'"

"Gordon Fyfe, Highland Council spokesman, said, 'The incident happened at lunch-time and involved a bag of whitish powder which appears to have fallen from a low-flying aircraft and burst on hitting the ground. The local doctor was also called to the school. The children's parents have been advised to ensure that any children involved wash thoroughly and that their clothes be washed because we simply do not know what the substance was."

EL DIABLITO STRIKES AGAIN IN PITRUFQUEN, ARGENTINA

"As occurs in fairy tales and myths, a strange being has been appearing repeatedly at night in the town of Pitrufquen, Argentina.

"The creature involved could be a diablito (Spanish for Imp--J.T.) which according to the testimony of some local children has manifested itself in a patch of a vacant lot located in the city's Calle Manuel Rodriguez (street). The children attested that the mysterious entity, which only appears at night, 'is small, more like no taller than 60 centimeters (20 inches), and he's been appearing since September (2000) in the same spot.'

Pitrufquen is located about 400 kilometers (250 miles) west of Buenos Aires, the national capital."

"They believe that the entity lives in a sort of cave not far from the backyard of the children's home."

"'We would go and see him every night, but first we thought it was a guagua (a newborn baby--S.C.) living in a house close to where we live.. Then we realized that the baby was always crying, and we thought that this is how we knew El Diablito was approaching,' explained the youngsters."

(Editor's Comment: The "crying baby" sound is associated with many types of paranormal phenomena, everything from poltergeists to phantom panthers. It may be like a duck call or a moose call, a device which the phenomenon uses to lure humans closer.)

"'Sometimes we would shine a flashlight on him at night. The light would shock him and make him crouch. That's when we could see things on the side of his head--like (unusual) ears. He'd squeal and then would go away, and that's when we started throwing stones at him. He would follow us, but we always managed to get away,' they stressed."

"The children explained that after this incident they never again went near the place. 'El Diablito scared us because he could do anything. Besides, he's real strong because he lifted a car that was near the cave, and he beat up the dogs,' they said."

"The youngsters added that, 'El Diablito got into the hospital and to pester the people there. That's why lots of people came (to the lot) to see him--firefighters and Carabineros (Argentinian state police--J.T.) and detectives showed up to keep an eye on him and to find out what was going on.'"

(Editor's Comment: El Diablito at the hospital: "Don't think of me as an Imp. Think of me as your vertically-challenged, HMO-designated primary care physician.")

"Selmira Munoz, the children's aunt, corroborated their version of the events. 'Whenever my nephew visited that place, they all came across a little crouching man wearing a sort of blanket over his back. The other neighbors can also say the same, since many of them have seen it. Fortunately, the entity hasn't come all the way to our house, and that's why the children have no trouble sleeping. But if they bother it, it reacts violently,' she stated."

"Selmira Mynoz also noted that there were suggestions that that the alleged Imp had been captured. 'The hospital officials said that it had been caught and sent to Temuco to perform experiments on it.'"

"Hernan San Martin, another witness to the mysterious entity's presence, recalled that 'one day I was drinking tea with my wife. I heard the children throwing stones at something. We went out for a look, and my wife told me she saw a little man walking around. I went outside to check what was going on and found a sort of cave in which it seemed to hide. That's when my wife told me it was a little man with wizened features , hairy pig-like ears and shining eyes.'"

"San Martin recalled that after the incident he wasn't all that convinced by the children's story. 'However, my wife and I thought we could feel it approaching the house in the dark. I made an effort to catch a glimpse of him, but I couldn't because he's very astute.'

"As time went by, he noticed that a few of his hens and chickens were slowly dying.. 'The likeliest explanation is that the critter killed them. What I find strangest of all is that it only drank the blood. All of these events led us to find out more about it. People told us that it was an imp raised in the countryside and will never live in the city. They further told us that it obeys a master and is loyal to him.'"

(Editor's Comment: Note the similarities between this Imp and the reports of Chupacabras coming out of Chile, Nicaragua and Mexico.)

"Hernan San Martin finally tried in spite of its aggressive tendencies, has not hurt the children un so far. 'It appears to have only wanted to play with them. , but it behaves violently towards animal since it hurts our cats and dogs don't want to go near it because it frightens them.'" (See the newspaper Diario Austral de Temuco for February for February 18, 2001, "Local residents terrified of 'Imp.'"

ANTOFAGASTA SAUCER "JUST A BALLOON," EDITOR SAYS

The "giant silver saucer" seen by two jetliners and hundreds of people in the cities of Calama and Antofagasta in northern Chile on Friday morning, February 16, 2001, was just a French research balloon, according to a noted South American ufologist.

Luis Eduado Pacheco, editor of Informe Alfa (Spanish for Alpha Report --J.T.), an e-magazine published in Argentina, said the UFO sighting in Chile "was generated by the flyby of a special kind of stratospheric balloon called the Montgolfier InfraRed (MIR)."

""This type of balloon has an aluminized Mylar envelope which reflects sunlight like a mirror, making it possible for the balloon to be seen up to a distance of 100 kilometers (60 miles)," Pacheco explained, "The UFO sighted by the two airliners and many people of Antofagasta and Calama on February 16 was the second MIR balloon, launched from the city of Bauru in the state of Sao Paulo in Brazil on February 15, 2001, which followed an east-to-west route more or less in a straight line along" Latitude 20 degrees South.

"An earlier balloon was launched on February 13 and will be reaching Africa in a few days," he added.

"The last balloon was launched on February 21, 2001 and is following the same route across South America and out over the Pacific Ocean. We have written to several researchers in Australia and Africa, warning them against false UFO reports resulting from the sighting if the MIR balloon." (Muchas gracias a Luis Eduardo Pacheco para esa informacion.)

MYSTERY BOOM AND TREMOR RATTLE NORTH YORKSHIRE

"A mystery tremor shook Scarborough and surrounding towns and villages " on Wednesday, February 21, 2001 ."

"The tremor hit at 11:30 a.m. and was felt as far north as Whitby and as far south as Filey."

"But as the Evening News went to press, there was no explanation what they were."

"Theories include a possible sonic boom or an earth tremor. John Porter, 52, who lives at Knipe Point, said the glass in his double-glazing (window) and roof were left shaking for two or three seconds."

"He said, 'It could have been an earth tremor. We have had them in England occasionally. We heard a low-pitched rumbling and the windows and roof started shaking.'"

"'I did not see or hear anything overhead. There was no sign of a plane or anything out to sea.'"

"Scarborough Council's group engineer Doug Bedford said, 'We felt it as well but we don't know what it is. The windows in the office shook.'"

"Mr. Bedford did not think it was an earth tremor, more something in the air."

"'I think it could have been an air pressure wave, like a building falling down,' he said."

"Scarborough Police Inspector Nigel Slater said that the boom was also felt at the police station but he had 'no idea what it could be.'"

"Michael Hill of Eastway, Eastfield, N. Yorks. also heard and felt the tremor. He said, 'I couldn't believe it. The whole house shook. I thought we were having an earthquake.'"

"Mike Green, watch manager for Humber Coastguards, based at Bridlington, said, 'It seems to me that it would be a sonic boom because of the area where it had been heard, possibly someone low-flying over the North York Moors.'"

"Peter Marks, Chairman of Eastfield Tenants and Residents Association, said, 'I heard a dull rumble, what sounded like an explosion and seconds later the windows began to wobble. It seemed quite a way away.'" (See the Scarborough Evening News for February 22, 2001. Many thanks to Gerry Lovell for forwarding this newspaper article.)

(Editor's Note: Scarborough was the site of a UFO incident a couple of weeks ago. For details, see UFO Roundup, Volume 6, Number 6 for February 8, 2001, "Three UFOs fly over Scarborough, Yorkshire," page 3.)

FIVE YELLOW UFOs FLY OVER GRIMSBY, LINCS.

On Monday, February 19, 2001, at about 9 p.m., James Ruffles was outdoors in Grimsby, Lincolnshire, UK when he spotted an unusual light in the north.

"A bright yellow object was approaching from the north," he reported, "There were five yellow bright lights heading into the woods. They were flying very fast. They whipped across the sky. When they got near the woods, they slowed down considerably and descended into the trees, and I lost sight of them."

"I phoned the RAF and asked if they had been doing anything in the area and they said no."

James described the UFOs as "yellow, oval in shape, and moving very, very fast." (Email Form Report)

LARGE COLOR-CHANGING UFO SEEN IN VILLAVERLA, ITALY

On Thursday, February 15, 2001, a man in Villaverla, Viterbo province, Italy "noticed in the sky around 10 p.m. a very large object like a star continually changing colors from azure blue to yellowish red. The object made circular movements through the sky as if it were spinning out of control and on the verge of disaster,' the witness said. But as it got closer to the ground, the object levelled off and began flying in a zigzag motion, leaving a reddish blue luminous trail behind it."

This case is being investigated by Italian ufologist Carlo Trimboli. (Grazie a Alfredo Lissoni di Centro Ufologico Nazionale d'Italia per questo rapporto.)

METALLIC SPHERE UFO SIGHTED IN BRAZIL

On Tuesday, January 23, 2001, a "mysterious object was seen" crossing the sky over the town of Baixada Fluminense in Brazil.

"The large spherical metallic object performed aerial maneuvers over the town and was seen by hundreds of witnesses. The object then hovered directly over one house. The frightened residents telephoned the Policia Militar The object then departed at high speed."

"Witnesses who did not see the object heard an explosio in the sky that was very loud."

The Policia Militar reportedly sent a bomb-disposal team to Baixada Fluminense along with a contingent of troops to investigate the incident. (Muito obrigado a Visitantes Cosmicas do Brasil por eso caso.)

MYSTERY LIGHT CHASES A CAR ON A HIGHWAY IN QUEENSLAND

On Saturday, February 17, 2001, at 11 p.m., Glen B. was driving his car on the Newell Highway just north of Moree, a town about 150 kilometers (90 miles) south-southwest of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia when he noticed a strange glow in his rear-view mirror.

"Travelling north on the Newell Highway" near More "a single bright light approached me from behind until it appeared to be about three metres (10 feet) back and to the right and the rear of my car. The light was approximately 1.5 metres (5 feet) off the ground."

"The light appeared bright when far back initially but, once closer, its apparent intensity reduced. It did not illuminate the inside of the car nor did it project a beam as a headlight would be expected to do."

"My initial thought was a motorcycle. But the light showed none of the jitters that a motorcycle light displays from undulations in the road. The light appeared about 30 to 40 centimetres (12 to 16 inches) in diameter and displayed a pink tinge to the side."

"During the course of about 90 minutes," Glen added, "the light disappeared, reappeared but at no stage overtook or approached ahead of my car. The light did, however, on a number of occasions, disappear and reappear perhaps 100 to 200 metres (330 to 550 feet) off to the side of the road but keeping perfect pace with the car. Although at night I know it is bush, fields, etc. off to the side of the highway, here in outback Australia, the light continued to pace the car."

"Only once did the light appear to stop and this was when it was perhaps 100 metres off to the right and pacing the car in a field. The light suddenly stopped and in a flat place. I could see that immediately in front of the light was a small tree/bush. However, I kept driving and the light disappeared behind, stationary behind the tree."

"The light appeared and disappeared intermittently for about 150 kilometers (90 miles) . The light appeared to interact with another vehicle only once. The light was behind my car when a truck (lorry in UK--J.T.) approached a number of kilometers behind, slowly closing to overtake my car. Within a few seconds, the light disappeared. But when the truck was within 100 metres" of his car, "the light reappeared behind and to the right of the truck. The light alternately appeared to the left and right of the truck, but each time it seemed to be passing behind the truck when it did this. Never in front. The truck suddenly braked and I pulled away" and "the light disappeared."

"When the light was pressing me a number of times just behind, I took my foot off the accelerator. No matter how quick a person's reflexes are, at 120 kilometers per hour (72 miles per hour) it will take time to react. and for the light to surge ahead. At no time did this happen. The light maintained perfect distance with respect to my car. The light paced the car exactly and smoothly. There was no sound emitted by the light." (Email Form Report)

(Editor's Comment: Glen's encounter sounds less like a UFO and more like an encounter with Australia's elusive Min-Min Light.)

WEST VIRGINIA IS FOR...BLACK HELICOPTERS!?

Luminous UFOs hovering over isolated natural gas week, mysterious noises underground, black helicopters flying up and down mountain valleys--these are just some of the strange doings these days in the "coal counties" of southern West Virginia.

You start in Beckley )population 18,000), a city 60 miles (100 kilometers) south of Charleston, the state capital. Then you head due south on U.S. Route 18 to Princeton (population 2,000). Then you head northeast along the old Seneca Trail to Lewisburg (population 3,600) and White Sulphur Springs (population (population 2,700). Then you head due west straight back to Beckley.

And there you have it--the Hinton Triangle.

According to William Ross, author of Armageddon or New Age, the Hinton Triangle has been the site of some strange occurrences since 1996.

Take Whitesville, W.V., for example. Ross wrote, "Many miner communities have only the retired miners. The mines are shut down. The local (Whitesville) state police barracks were only trailers when thousands of (coal) miners used to live here. Now that they've left for North Carolina for jobs, we now have Auschwitzes (secret prison camps--J.T.) all over the place. For example, up in Whitesville, the once-trailer is now a 10-acree school transferred to the state police What do you need a mini-prison for when over 90 percent of the population has left?"

In the 1970s, Ross noted, "The miners used to just close and leave. Now 20-foot (6-meter) chainlink fences surround the roads to keep you off the whole mountain. This is going on all over the place in all of the southern coal counties of West Virginia."

Trucks go in and out, but they sure aren't hauling coal."

"Behind me is the old (Union) Carbide mine (that) closed 25 years ago. People in the community here have been hearing machinery noises 'down under' and explosions that shook the earth. They sure aren't mining coal. All of the (dairy) farms from Over Top in about a 73-mile area are being bought up by the (USA) federal government."

Within the Hinton Triangle, he added, "At certain locations, small-engine aircraft do drops,, black helicopters land, etc. They have sensors in the trees, and four-wheelers (all-terrain vehicles--J.T.) chase after you."

Black helicopters have been sighted frequently in Shady Springs, W.V., located 8 miles (11 kilometers) south of Beckley.

In Princeton, the seat of Mercer County, black helicopters have been seen flying at night, and "when you walk in the (nearby) woods, you come across open clearings used as (black helicopter) landing zones (KXs)."

Another frequent black helicopter haunt is the Green Brier Valley.

(Editor's Note: The valley is best known as the birthplace of Traveller, the horse that belonged to Confederate general Robert E. Lee.)

"UFO-type aircraft are seen refueling at natural gas wells in the woods," Ross wrote, "And MJTF (Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force--J.T.) trains in part of the forest" northeast of Princeton.

The most curious feature of the Hinton Triangle is the sighting of "disappearing trucks," he added, "Trucks are seen at night, driving around a hill, and...ZAP! No more truck. The 75-mile area is surrounded by radio towers from Ripley to Ravenswood to Sissonville to Arbuckle."

Ross noted a strange incident that took place at the Winfield Locks and Dam, just down the mountain from Arbuckle on the Kanawha River. Here some civilians were intrigued by the huge warehouses on the property. Finding an open window, they went inside and were stunned to find dozens of large military armored vehicles in storage. These included Russian-built T-80 and T-72 tanks, BMP-40 armored personnel carriers and ZIL-131 and Kamaz 5320 heavy-duty military trucks. All of the vehicles were painted white and had the black letters UN on their turrets or sidewalls.

"The huge white warehouses were housing Russian and East German tanks. Army tanks--big ones! They went in five years ago. They never had this kind of thing in the state even during the Cold War." According to Ross, "There is an underground base in Shady Springs with tunnels reaching into Pipestem State Park."

The strangest report comes from Hinton, W.V. itself. Here, Ross claimed, "There is an old M.I.B. (Men in Black--J.T.) underground base which has a bunch of old black cars--in mint condition." Classic cars in storage there include a 1948 Packard, a 1953 DeSoto, a 1956 Thunderbird and vintage Cadillacs dating from 1950 through 1962.

(Editor's Comment: The General Services Administration (GSA) customarily auctions off old federal government cars every year. Why are these old and potentially very valuable automobiles being kept in underground storage? This facility sounds like a car collector's dream.)
In the west end of the state, Ross reported another unusual incident in Parkersburg, W.V. (population 7,400.) Here some people saw "white plastic-coated, snap-together aluminzed 'tiger cages' " laid flat and loaded onto wooden pallets on the Ohio River docks.

(Editor's Note: Tiger cages made of wire and bamboo were used to confine American P.O.W.s in Vietnam during the war. Also, Parkersburg played a role in Illuminati history. Just north of the community, in the middle of the Ohio River, is Blennerhasset Island. Today there are only ruins there, but it was once a fortress-mansion built by the notorious Illuminati diabolist Harman Blennerhasset. From 1794 until 1806, the mansion was the headquarters of the Illuminati in the USA. For more on the Conspiracy of 1806, see any biography of Thomas Jefferson or Aaron Burr.)

Another MIB underground depot is located in Red Sulphur Springs, W.V., he added, not far from the extensive Laurel Creek Cave system. (Many thanks to Rev. Billy Dee for forwarding the pamphlet.

"EARTHQUAKE SEASON"--WHOLE LOTTA SHAKIN' GOIN' ON

Last weekend saw an unprecedented number of strong earthquakes taking place within a three-day period.

On Friday, February 23, 2001, an earthquake measuring 6.0 on the Richter scale took place in southwestern China. The quake's epicenter was in Sichuan province, according to the New China News Agency. The quake destroyed buildings and sent people fleeing in Yajiang, just east of Sichuan.

The same day, an earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale shook homes and office buildings in Japan, about 300 kilometers (180 miles) west of Tokyo.

On Saturday, February 24, 2001, at 4:23 a.m., an earthquake measuring 6.5 on the Richter scale undulated the ocean floor in the Sea of Molucca north of Indonesia. The epicenter of the quake was at latitude 1.5 degrees north and longitude 126.2 degrees east. The quake destroyed several buildings in the city of Ternate, 2,400 kilometers (1,440 miles) from Jakarta, the national capital, sending panic-stricken Indonesians fleeing into the jungle.

Also on Saturday, at 10:40 a.m. local time, another strong earthquake rocked the Central American nation of El Salvador. This quake measured 5.5 on the Richter scale, and it was the third strong earthquake El Salvador has seen since January 2001. The quake was felt in San Salvador, the national capital, and in the major cities of San Miguel, Santa Ana and Colutepeque.

According to radio station YSKL in San Salvador, the town suffering the worst quake damage was San Pedro Nonualco, located 60 kilometers (36 miles) east of San Salvador. Dozens of tremor-damaged homes collapsed, and casualties in the town included 305 dead and 135 injured. (Muito obrigado a Visitantes Cosmicas por esas informacoes.)

(Editor's Comment: Four strong earthquakes in one weekend is truly a newsworthy event. But the newspapers here in the USA largely ignored it. How come?)

UNKNOWN CIVILIZATION DISCOVERED IN PERU

"Archaeologists from the USA have discovered the ruins of a heretofore-unknown ancient civilization in northern Peru."

"The archaeologists discovered the ruins of a civilization" in the desert between Tumbes and Piura, about 530 kilometers (318 miles) north of Lima, the national capital. "The ruins are thought to predate the civilization of the Mochicas and date from about 500 A.D. The site discovered was an adobe enclosure of 135-square-meters. It contained pottery, textile fragments, intact human skeletons and walls."

(Editor's Note: A similar enclosure but from a millenia later can be seen at Puruchuco, just east of Lima.)

"The skeletal remains of the original inhabitants were 'in a good state of preservation.' the archaeological team reported. This (newly-discovered) culture is thought to predate the Mochicas, whose culture first appeared in around 800 A.D.." (See the newspaper O Globo of Sao Paulo, Brazil for February 15, 2001. Obrigado a Visitantes Cosmicas por eso articulo.)

SORCERESS TOMB FOUND IN SAKKARA, EGYPT

The discovery of the tomb of an ancient Egyptian queen has archaeologists really excited.

"The most impressive find is at Sakkara, an ancient royal cemetery about 20 miles (32 kilometers) south of Cairo, where French scientists have unearthed the remains of a 4,000-year-old queen's pyramid."

"Leading Egyptologists Jean Leciant, Audran Labrousse and their team discovered the burial chamber of Queen Ankh-sen-Pepi, the wife of Pharoah Pepi I. Inside the tomb was an even more extraordinary artifact--a stone text containing ancient prayers to protect the dead and to ensure a happy afterlife."

"The archaeological victory has fueled the experts' digging fever and they're working around the clock."

"'Who knows what else they may find?' says Gaballa Ali Gaballa, head of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities, which oversees the excavation."

Discovery of the magickal prayer wall at Queen Ankh's tomb comes as no surprise to some occultists. The queen has an interesting background.

Ankh-sen-Pepi was born around 2350 B.C., the daughter of a noble Egyptian family in Asyut, a port city on the Nile in Upper Egypt (now southern Egypt, near the border with the Sudan--J.T.). As such, she was an heiress to an older, more venerable magickal tradition rooted in central Africa, as opposed to the Osiris-Isis-Set religion of the priests of Amon-Ra.

In 2330 B.C., Ankh married Crown Prince Meryre. Three years later, in 2327 B.C., he succeeded his father as Pharoah Pepi I, "the third and most vigorous ruler of the Sixth Dynasty. His mining, quarrying and trading expeditions reached Tomas in Lower Nubia , the Wadi Hammamat and Sinai. His piety was expressed by the founding of temples throughout Egypt."

Pepi and his queen reigned for 50 years and actually built the country's future capital, Men-neferu-Meryre, better known by its later name, Memphis. Queen Ankh survived her husband's death in 2278 B.C. For awhile, she was chief advisor to her son, Pharoah Merenre I, but then she sort of dropped out of sight.

What secrets will the queen's tomb reveal? Time will tell. (See the National Examiner for February 20, 2001, "New Egyptian tombs found," page 55. Thanks also to Richard A. Parker, Ph. D. of Brown University for the short Pepi bio.)

U.S. MARINES UNVEIL A MICROWAVE WEAPON

""The (U.S.) Marines are preparing to unveil a weapon that directs a microwave-like field of energy at a person to create a burning sensation that causes the person to flee, says a report Monday," February 26, 2001 "in the Marine Corps Times."

"The independent newspaper called the Vehicle Mounted Active Denial System (VMADS) possibly the biggest breakthrough in weapons technology since the atomic bomb" in 1945.

"The energy" produced by the weapon "which falls on microwaves on the electromagnetic spectrum, causes skin moisture to heat up rapidly, creating a burning sensation similar to a hot light bulb against the skin, the Times said."

The article "quoted Marine Colonel George Fenton, director of the Joint Non-Lethal Weapons Directorate, as saying that when used briefly, the weapon causes no long-term problems."

"The amount of time the weapon must be trained on an individual to cause permanent damager or death is classified."

"Its effective range also is secret but is beyond the reach of traditional small-arms fire, according to the report." (See USA Today for February 27, 2001, "Marines working on microwave weapon," page 7A.)

(Editor's Comment: Microwave weapons are old news in the UFO community. In 1958, a UFO used a microwave weapon against a pursuing plane flown by a Uruguayan air force captain over Pan de Azucar, Uruguay. My guess is, this new weapon was back-engineered from a captured alien weapon found on either the saucer that crashed in Boyle, Ireland in 1995 or the one that crashed in Varginha, Brazil in January 1997.)


From the UFO Files...

1995: INVADED BY A BLACK HELICOPTER

"During April of 1995, during an official visit in the U.S. by the Japanese emperor," Akihito, "a clerk observed a black helicopter landing across the street from the Corner Store in Ruckersville, Green County, Virginia. The chopper deployed several black-uniformed armed troops who fanned out running. and formed a defensive perimeter. They were in a defensive position for approximately 30 minutes., then upon a whistled command (a non-U.S. tactical signaling approach, suggesting that these may have been foreign troops--J.K.) they remounted the chopper and egressed the area. Employment and deployment happened very fast, and the (store) clerk was startled and very scared." (See Black Helicopters II: The Endgame Strategy by Jim Keith, IllumiNet Press, Lilburn, Georgia, 1997, page 20.)
