Robert Emenegger – Weapons Of Mass Disinfo

Robert Emenegger is one of those people in the background of the UFO subject that know a lot and don’t often tell. Emenegger emerged from the advertising and entertainment industry in the 1960s as a sharp and innovative mind. The United States Department of Defense took notice and asked him and his partner Alan Sandler to produce a few small films on contract. In 1971, they hit him with a bomb: would he like to produce a film on what the Government knew about UFOs and aliens? He would have the full cooperation of the Air Force and other agencies, and they also promised to provide film footage of an actual flying saucer landing at Holloman Air Force Base in New Mexico sometime in the 1960s.

Who could refuse? Soon, Emenegger was visiting the Pentagon, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and Holloman itself. He was given apparently free reign of the facilities and encouraged to ask anything he wanted. Even Major Donald Keyhoe, who failed to get the U.S. government to open up about the subject in the 1950s, called to say he was outraged that mere civilians were getting access to stories he was never allowed to hear. The film, which was entitled UFOs: Past, Present and Future, was going well.

Just before deadline, an Air Force contact, who had been nothing but cooperative, called to say that they would not be allowed to use the Holloman footage. The climax of the film was ruined and Emenegger had to go with some hastily-produced drawings to describe the story.

Along the way, he saw government scientists blowing holes in concrete walls with lasers, using computers to read human minds, and sophisticated (for the time) 3-D holography. During the interview, I sometimes thought that Emenegger was trying to tell us a little more about advanced technology in the last 50 years than most of us could know or guess.

He also describes a meeting with Col. Phillip Corso in the 1980s when Corso described finding pictures of alien-looking beings in a file cabinet, and how that story may have changed considerably to fit the bill for his sensationalistic 1997 book, The Day After Roswell.

Enjoy this fascinating and rare talk with a little-known figure in the history of the UFO subject.

P.S. Bob was also a major creative force behind the Lancelot Link: Secret Chimp kid’s show of the early 1970s, which I watched faithfully when I was a wee lad. He wrote all of the songs for the show, among other contributions. We talked about this, but for some reason the recording cut off about 5 minutes from the end of the interview. Does someone want to keep Lance Link under wraps!? You decide!

    I listened to that show live a few weeks ago, and I must admit I had a hard time trying to follow the conversation, since Mr. Emenegger jumped back & forth a lot at the beginning. Nevertheless by the end it was progressing very nicely —it’s a shame the posted audio is cut short.

    The Holloman story has always fascinated me; listening to Emenegger makes me think there might just be a kernel of truth behind all of it, although it is hardly convincing evidence of the US government having diplomatic relationships with aliens.

    PS: The part where Emenegger told about Strieber and his wife visiting his home, and Whitley refusing to eat chocolate because “they” forbid it, was actually part of his book Transformation; the white being which was illustrated in the front cover warned him that he would risk death if he ate any candy. Later Strieber goes and speculates that this was probably some test, to force him to adhere to some kind of ascetic life-style —candy was his personal “Room 101” so to speak.

    I sometimes think that I should interrupt the guest if they don’t seem to be making sense, but as long as they’re making at least some sense to me, I usually let them go. Bob’s stuff was so fascinating that I let him go on as he wished. I know this is not a recipe for success, but I’m just not interested in popularity, I guess!

    Glad you (at least) liked it.

    Hey Greg, I really enjoy your show (weird music and all) and I like the redesigned site. However, there doesn’t seem to be any way to download the episodes, at least as far as I can see. What am I missing?

    Thanks for doing what you’re doing, and I’m looking forward to listening more in the future!

      Thanks for your support. It means a lot. The original site was hacked last month and is being rebuilt. Might be after the first of the year before it’s back to “normal” again.

    This was a fascinating interview, I’ve only recently discovered this show, I love it, I’ve been weaving my way through the archives, and I will soon be buying a copy of Mr. Bishop’s book. By the way, if either Mr. Emenegger or Mr. Bishop is interested in a DVD-R copy of UFO Cover-Up Live, a very decent looking copy, I would be more than happy to send either one of you one. This whole chapter in the world of UFOlogy is noteworthy, fascinating, and should be remembered…

      Thank you for your kind comments. I think the show appeals to a rather narrow audience, so any new listeners are encouraging.

      I have a copy of that program, and it’s available on YouTube (at least it was the last time I checked) but thank you for your kind offer.

      • Jay says:

        Everything that interests me appears to appeal to a narrow audience. But hey, that’s why the world wide web exists.

        Actually I managed to find a commercially produced VHS copy of that particular show a few years back and I started looking into the whole disinformation aspect of it a while before that. When I heard an interview that you did about your book, I knew that I needed to start checking out your show, and your book too.

        Thanks for the reply Greg.

    This is pretty funny, I just noticed that amongst my collection of oddball rare movies is a copy of a 1981 sci-fi oddity named Escape from DS-3. Produced by Robert Emenegger, Allan Sandler, and Anne Spielberg, co-directed by Emenegger and Sandler, and music by Emenegger. Haven’t watched it in years, maybe I should check it out again.
