faces were unpleasant to look at. Their eyes shone like
tiny flashlight bulbs, and the teeth were pearly white,
set in a very dark complexion. I could not see their
hands, covered by black gloves. A bluish radiance
enveloped their entire bodies, and I wondered if this
was giving off the sulphuric odor."

THREE MEN (page 106) 1962

poltergeists, frog rainfalls, and UFOs are all interrelated. You
can’t possibly investigate one without some knowledge of the others.
For example, the Men in Black (MIBs) so well known in UFO lore are
even better known in the histories of witchcraft and black magic.
These mysterious gentlemen have been reported for a thousand years.
The UFO buffs decided they were CIA agents. But another group known
as superbuffs thinks the whole world is run by a secret league of
wealthy men and that the MIBs are their minions. In the Far East,
where belief in a “king of the world” still rides high, people think
the MIBs are agents from the secret underground cities of the king.
In West Virginia the MIBs passed themselves off as everything from
Bible salesmen to census takers."

Men in Black:
the UFO silencers
Usually traveling in twos and threes, driving
black luxury cars and
wearing sunglasses and dark suits, they appear sensitive to
light, are bizarrely "foreign" in appearance, and issue warnings and threats to UFO witnesses.
Their faces are hairless and plastic-like as if masks are hiding their real nature.

they weren't human. According to Keel, the MIB often claim to
represent an organization called "The Nation of the Third
Because of their secret agent look and how they are uncannily well
informed, some believe they work for the government,
although US intelligence agencies have denied all knowledge of them.
Others think they might be bio-synthetic forms or even holographic images working
for the "ufo invaders".
They appear to have telepathic powers and have been reported to
mysteriously disappear when their cars are chased.
Men in Black are responsible for silencing witnesses to UFOs and
ensuring that UFO events are kept hidden from the public. They use forms of persuasion from phone calls and
surprise visits to the threat of deadly force. They
usually confiscate any "evidence" that the contacted might have
Men in Black in the age of Ufology began with Albert K. Bender:
Albert Bender and the M.I.B. Mystery
In 1953 Albert K. Bender of Bridgeport Connecticut was
running an organization called the International Flying
Saucer Bureau (IFSB) and editing a little publication
called "Space Review" that was dedicated to news of
The IFSB had a small membership despite its rather
grandiose title, and Space Review reached at best, no
more than a few hundred readers. But they were all
deeply devoted to the idea that flying saucers were
craft from outer space. In common with other true
believers, these saucer buffs were convinced that they
were in possession of a great truth, while most of the
rest of the world remained in darkness and ignorance.
They felt very important, and thus it was with a sense
of surprise, even shock, that they opened up the October
1953 issue of Space Review and found two unexpected
announcements: "LATE BULLETIN. A source which the IFSB
considers very reliable has informed us that the
investigation of the flying saucer mystery and the
solution is approaching its final stages. This same
source to whom we had referred data, which had come into
our possession, suggested that it was not the proper
method and time to publish the data in Space Review."
The second and more shocking item read: "STATEMENT OF
IMPORTANCE: The mystery of the flying saucers is no
longer a mystery. The source is already known, but any
information about this is being withheld by order from a
higher source. We would like to print the full story in
Space Review, but because of the nature of the
information we are very sorry that we have been advised
in the negative."
The statement ended with the ominous sentence, "We
advise those engaged in saucer work to please be very
cautious." Bender then suspended the publication of
Space Review, and dissolved the IFSB.
The tone of the announcements would have been familiar
to anyone who had much experience with occult
organizations. Occultists often claim they are in the
possession of some great secret which, for equally
secret reasons, they cannot reveal. Even the appeal,
"please be very cautious" was not unique. It made those
engaged in "saucer work" feel more important. After all,
who is going to bother to persecute you if you are just
wasting your time?

MIBs, UFOs, and the Carlos Allende Letters
Ever since organised flying
saucer research began in the early 1950`s a
disturbing number of serious UFO investigators have
suffered personal harassment, unusual accidents and
even mysterious deaths. In some cases, sinister
voices have whispered threats over the telephone and
warned certain researchers to terminate specific
investigations. Recently an increasing number of
civilian UFOlogists have been visited by ominous
strangers who have made it physically clear that
their orders to discontinue all UFO investigations
would be violently enforced. Official disclaimers
have only served to intensify the mystery of the
bizarre incidents currently seeding chaos within the
rank of civilian UFO investigators and instilling
fear among those who witness flying-saucer activity.
Men In Black Facts
MIBs , traveling in groups of up
to three, usually visit recent UFO witnesses and
warn them not to report their encounter. They often
claim to represent some government agency (which
invariably proves to be false) and briefly flash
official-looking ID. Those visited by MIB often feel
ill afterward, sometimes for days.
Men In Black, An Investigation

Men in Black: The UFO Terrorists
by Anne Jablonicky
The "Men in Black" - or "MIB" for
short - have had this ominously evil effect on
dozens of level-headed individuals. But let me
explain in more detail for those not aware of the
reign of terror that has gone on in the UFO field,
almost totally undetected for so many years.
Sightings: Men in Black
by Paul Greenberg
A professor of humanities and
folklore at New York's Julliard School by the name
of Peter Rojcewicz didn't tell anybody about his
encounter with the Men in Black for years -- for
fear of how people would react...
The Men-In-Black of Legend
The Men in Black are beings who
appear anywhere major UFO sightings take place. They
go about threatening people who have claimed to have
seen UFOs into not asking about what they witnessed.
They wear sunglasses. They wear black suits. They
have olive complexions. They drive black
mint-condition vintage luxury cars or fly in black
helicopters. Some think that they are government
agents. Some think that they are alien agents.
The Sinister Men In Black
As UFO sightings increase, so
does the harassment of witnesses - by the sinister
Men In Black.

Who are the Men In Black?
by Bufo Calvin
The variations are many, as are
the theories. Often noted is their immaculate dark
clothing, and new appearing cars. More ominous,
though, are details that suggest something
other-worldly about these intimidators. Perhaps the
brand-new car they drive is a model many years old.
Maybe they step outside the door and vanish when
there is nowhere to go. Sometimes they show
unfamiliarity with common objects, like ball-point
pens, or the MIB who tried to drink Jell-O. Maybe
they'll make a coin vanish or perform some other
apparently magical feat. In the most extreme cases,
they do not even appear to be human!
