Mirage Men (2013)
Ok conspiracy theorists, this one is for you. And for the UFO people as well. Mirage Men is a documentary about how the UFO rumors and stories about Rosewell, NM and many others were perpetuated in the late 70's and 80's.
Turns out that is was all a ruse to get one guy to stop looking into things he was not suppose to be looking at. Problem was that the guy started to believe what he was being told and ended up in an institution.
The documentary centers around one man, Richard Doty. Doty was a counter intelligence office from the Air Force's OSI unit. This man was paid to lie and obfuscate and, according to the documentary, did his job well. Very well.
The information is this documentary is outlandish and at times hard to believe, but by the end it makes a lot of sense on how the public was lead to believe that we had aliens among us.
Mirage Men is on Netflix. Give it a shot. They also talk about the cow mutilations. That should be a hoot for you to watch. Oh yeah, this documentary has won multiple award from various film festivals.
