"Targeted Individual -Paul Bennewitz" (1979)

In 1979, Paul Bennewitz operated a small electronics company, called Thunder Scientific Corporation, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. From his home on the outskirts of Albuquerque, Bennewitz had, along with others, seen strange lights in the night sky over the Manzano Test Range outside Albuquerque. The lights seemed to appear almost every evening and to fly towards Coyote Canyon, also a part of the Kirtland Air Force Base area that included Sandia National Laboratory and PhillipsLaboratory, both of which conduct government research.
In early 1980, Paul Bennewitz became involved in observing and filming objects which he had sighted on the ground and in the air near Kirtland Air Force Base. Subsequently, on 24 October 1980 he contacted Major Ernest Edwards of the Kirtland Security Police.
Seeing an opportunity a scheme was enacted to bombard Bennewitz with disinformation to entice Paul to help cultivate and propogate the UFO myth

"Targeted Individual -Paul Bennewitz"
For over 60 years teams within the US Air Force and Intelligence services exploited and manipulated beliefs about UFOs and ET visitations as part of their counterintelligence programmes. In doing so they spawned a mythology so powerful that it captivated and warped many brilliant minds, including several of their own. Now, for the first time, some of those behind these operations, and their victims, speak out, revealing a true story that is part Manchurian Candidate and part Close Encounters of the Third Kind.
Electronic Weapons were used to perturb Paul's mind and nervous system as false "communications" presumably between himself and aliens were sent to his computer.Across the street "they set up shop" to beam microwaves at the house...
"This is an incredible story about deception and tomfoolery in high places. The filmmakers have uncovered a tale that tells us that everything we thought we knew about UFOs is wrong. And the truth - the true truth - is much more interesting."
Jon Ronson - Author of The Psychopath Test
"Really original in the story it tells... Mirage Men presents an astonishing new perspective on the UFO mythology, and opens up the much wider question of how we know what we know about the world outside... a brilliant piece of work."
Adam Curtis - Director of The Power of Nightmares, The Century of the Self.
