American former Naval Intelligence officer who became deeply involved in the UFO culture. Cooper burst upon the UFO scene in 1988, and has been a controversial and infamous figure ever since. He gives public lectures, is heard on the radio, sends out newsletters and, in 1991 came out with a book, "Behold a Pale Horse." Confrontational and contradictory, Cooper skims past detractors who point out factual errors in his stories. He had been accused of being an alcoholic, a liar and a fascist or even worse, written off as a psychopath. In his book he details the sinister alien plot to control humanity, alleging documents of proof. Appearing sincere in his beliefs, rather than a UFO researcher, Cooper is a classic conspiracy theorist, who cloaks 19th century xenophobia in Space-Age guise. He is engaged in the battle between angels and demons which will culminate in Armageddon and Doom's Day. Discrepancies, errors and even false statements just aren't very important, when you're serving TRUTH.
Born into a military family, Cooper completed high school in Japan and enlisted in the USAF. He was an exemplary member of the Air Force (1961) and Navy (in 1966) for a decade. When other military began talking about flying saucers, he did not believe them at first. Transferred to Security and Intelligence school in 1968, he became used to hearing sensitive information about UFOs while in Vietnam. Back in Hawaii, he began his 18-year search for the Truth that led to his book.
In UFO research circles, Cooper is best known for accusing his colleagues to be CIA agents and for physically threatening them. First reaching the UFO community on the website Paranet, Cooper related a sighting he had in 1966 while on the USS Tiru, a Naval submarine. He then began to send in details about various secret projects that he alleged were in process by the government, and stated that he had top secret documents in hand in 1971-72. He evaded questions or replied abusively until he was barred from the website, losing the trust of many in the UFO community. He continued to send in anonymous reports, declaring conspiracy from both the government and from UFO community to conceal information.
Cooper became a popular lecturer with his conspiracy theories of how the government was covering up not only UFOs but a secret governing society, and that we had secret bases established on the Moon and on Mars, built in the ‘50s. Cooper claimed that the flying saucers were a secret weapon first invented by the Nazis during WW II. The "One World Government" at Area 51 planned to use these craft to stage a mock alien invasion. The alien threat would give the government the excuse to take away all guns and impose federal restrictions. Though he had never seen an alien himself, he had talked to those who had and stated that there are four types of aliens: two kinds of "Grays", including one race, not commonly seen, that has a large nose. Then there are the "Nordic" types, tall blonde Aryans, and finally the "Orange" ones. Several points of origin were mentioned: Orion, the Pleiades, Betelgeuse, Barnard's star and Zeta Reticuli. They power their ships with a small nuclear reactor the size of a football, using a space-time fold. Apparently they have the ability to cloak themselves, to go invisible. Earth has been in a treaty with them since 1954.
His incredible stories go on and on, relating a tangle of secrecy and manipulation. Appealing to a certain segment of fanatics, Cooper had his followers. Psychologist consider that those who are caught up in conspiracy theories are usually those who feel they have no control over their environment or their lives.
When discharged from the navy, Cooper moved to a rural environment in Arizona, where he had a small local radio program. He claimed that the CIA was attempting to shut him up with extreme prejudice. In a car accident in which he was run off the road, he lost one leg. On 11/05/2001, before midnight, more than 30 CIA agents surrounded his rural property. When he went out to encounter them, gunfire began in which he shot one officer to death before he was gunned down, about 00:15 AM of 11/06, Eager, AZ.
