On Friday, February 22, 2013, former U. S. Navy electronics intelligence operative Jef Harvey exposed History Channel’s “UFO Hunters” as a “COINTELPRO situation.” In an exclusive interview the practicing board-certified Pennsylvania nutritionist cited the omission of key facts pertinent to the radio frequency-emitting implant that was removed from his leg in a surgery performed by Dr. Roger Leir during the season one episode three broadcast of “Abductions.”
“UFO Hunters” was an American television series that ran for three seasons on the History Channel inviting audiences to consider how reports of UFOs may be “Hoax or History” (as the show’s tagline alluded). The season one cast included New York Times best-selling author and UFO Magazine publisher William J. Birnes, scuba diver Pat Uskert and mechanical engineer and MIT researcher Ted Acworth.
According to one source, the show’s opening theme song “The Only One,” was performed by the band Operator (irony).
In “Abductions” Jef Harvey was portrayed as a contactee seeking closure with what he believes to be an ET implant received during a childhood UFO incident. Tangible evidence for the unusual nature of the object removed surgically from his leg was followed by persistent debunking including the dismissal of radio-frequency emissions detected from the implant before it was removed.
From this now demonstrably false premise, “UFO Hunters” reveals an apparent absence of curiosity regarding Jef Harvey’s unique history as an operative in the Intelligence Center of the USS John F. Kennedy. Their over-the-top omission raises serious questions concerning any conclusions reached through what can now be understood as the show’s evidently biased and un-scientific investigative methodology.
According to Jef Harvey, “UFO Hunters” used the cutting room floor and their editing process to "lie about what really happened.”

UFO Hunters suggested how the implant was a remnant from a UFO encounter. But was it something else? Jef Harvey is the guest on UFOPM for Friday, Feb. 22, 2013, where he explains what the History Channel's UFO Hunters apparently don't want you to know.”
The following is a partial transcript of Jef Harvey’s appearance on "UFOPM" from Feb. 22, 2013, where the former U. S. Navy electronics intelligence operative shares important truths overlooked by History Channel’s “UFO Hunters” pertinent to the radio frequency-emitting implant that was removed from his leg in a surgery performed by Dr. Roger Leir during the season one episode three broadcast of “Abductions.”
UFOPM: What was your experience with “UFO Hunters” and what was the part of the story that they left out?
Jef Harvey: The picture you are showing right now, the one that had that charcoal-looking-like bit; that was about the size of a cantaloupe seed. As you can see in that picture, they’re actually pulling it out of my leg. Very, very tiny as you can see in that picture on the gauze cloth.
Inside that charcoal-looking piece was a circular area about the size of a BB. That whole thing was sitting inside a pouch of flesh that was connected into my nervous system and into my body through tendrils. It was able to actually take from me whatever kind of nutrients it needed for energy to power itself.
What was interesting is that they covered almost nothing at all about what the real possibilities were of how it got there.
UFOPM: To clarify, the actual object itself is embedded within that chunk of material.
Jef Harvey: That’s correct and that chunk of material was inside of a pouch. One side of the pouch was unbelievably, very hard. The other side was soft. In fact the hard side was so hard if you scraped it with a scalpel you could literally hear it in the room, the noise it made. And that’s not normal when you scrape a piece of tissue that’s internal to the body.
UFOPM: The attachment of flesh to this object was something that was highlighted on the show. They used some type of scanning microscopy to look at the object. They saw that there was tissue attached to it and said during the broadcast this was not normal, that human tissue typically wouldn’t attach itself to something made out of metal. What do you attribute those characteristics to?
Jef Harvey: There’s a lot that didn’t show up on the TV because many of the things that were tested on it afterwards were tested long after that show was done. Like Eagle Research looking into the actual components inside.
It looks like what this is, is a type of bio-nanotech. That’s what it appears to be. But it’s in such an advanced form that it’s not like you see a circuit design in there.
Evidently they used a tunneling microscope. Even at that level, the only thing they could identify was the fact that my DNA tissue was inside and melding with that material, which normally is not the way things go in the body because your body rejects foreign objects. Normally it will encase it in a cyst.
In this case, it was encased in a pouch that was more of a protective pouch which evidently allowed nutrients and energy to be absorbed into the pouch, transferred to the object and then the object would be powered by that to do its transmission work. We don’t know whether or not it was interfacing with the nervous system.
UFOPM: According to this hypothesis the technology being demonstrated by this object demonstrates an advanced understanding of human DNA.
Jef Harvey: Indeed. And the technology that developed something that tiny: if you look at a tiny BB and then think of that BB being inside of a cantaloupe seed, that’s how tiny this was. Extraordinarily small, so it had to be a kind of bio-nanotech to accomplish everything that it was doing.
UFOPM: One of the indicators that something unusual was happening that was shown on “UFO Hunters” was the testing for radio frequency emissions. You have something to say about those tests as well as the conclusions that were reached on the show.
Jef Harvey: That was the funny part. What they didn’t realize was, even though I explained to them that I was in military intelligence, what they didn’t know was my job was electronics. I was an electronics technician in the navy and I worked in the Intelligence Center on the [USS] John F. Kennedy in mission planning. My equipment was in the admiral’s bedroom, cryptography, meteorology, satellite groups, combat information center, the war room and all the other above-top-secret spaces.
When I do a test on something, especially like we did for the “UFO Hunters” series, I did a near-field investigation of the area that I did the test work in to make sure that there were no spurious signals in the area over a period of time and then I tested the device. The device put out terrestrial frequencies that were in the standard police band, which I thought was very interesting. It also put out frequencies that were in deep space-probe bands.
When you would push your finger on the spot on my leg where this device was it would stop transmitting. You could watch it on the frequency counter. It would just stop dead. And when you let go it would wait a few seconds and start transmitting again. We did those tests over and over and over again and I did them in multiple locations. What they didn’t know was I tested this eight ways to Sunday before we got to the filming for the show.
UFOPM: The broadcast portrayed the phenomena of radio frequency detection as some kind of aberrant signal. They said this is probably just some noise in the environment.
Jef Harvey: What they were saying was these were spurious signals. And they were trying to use an MIT counterintelligence operative. Guy’s name was Ted Acworth. His job was to debunk anything that might prove that there’s such a thing as implants or any of that. It was pretty clear to anyone who’s ever been in intelligence what his job was.
His job was to find any excuse to ameliorate the facts that were there in front of you. The bad news is because you didn’t hear, as the viewer of the show, that I was in military intelligence in electronics, there was never any way for what I said to be gauged as something that might possibly override what they were using as disinformation.
When they pulled that piece out, they pulled out a lot of information that lent credibility to what was really going on. In fact, “UFO Hunters” was a disinformation channel designed to debunk any kind of UFO anything.
UFOPM: Can you tell us a little bit about how you got involved in military service and some of your experiences on the John F. Kennedy?
Jef Harvey: Before I left high school I knew I was going to be an intelligence operative. What I was going to do I had no idea but I knew I was going to be an op. So in senior year, I made sure I was missing from the high school photo for my year book. When I went into the military a group of men in military uniform inducted me into a group that’s a watcher group.
They explained to me that the Jesuit New World Order and the Jesuit Illuminati groups had taken over the military and many other organizations around the world. They were now controlling them and doing things they shouldn’t. They asked if I was patriotic, if I would obey the constitution and if I would act as an operative and do what I could about some of these efforts and bring to light what they’re doing.
I said "Yes" and it’s a life-long commitment. So once I left the military that’s still active and I still work on that.
Once I got on board the John F. Kennedy and got my first assignment I quickly found myself being promoted to the head technician for the intelligence briefing system, the AN/SXQ-8. This is a system that is used to brief the pilots, the ready rooms and the captain. My microphones were in the captain’s bedroom and everywhere else that was above top-secret.
I’m not sure what guiding hand got me where I got but I was inside of an intel-watching authority that was watching the intelligence community in the navy. I think at some point they figured it out and I think at some point they decided that it was time to chip me.
UFOPM: Were some of the dynamics within the US Navy that you are describing also playing out on television through “UFO Hunters”?
Jef Harvey: I contacted Roger Leir and I said “I’ve got this bump in my leg and I’m not sure what it is.” Honest to God I didn’t believe at all for a second that it was any kind of an alien abduction scenario even though that’s what they used on the cutting room floor to make it look like I thought I was an alien abductee.
I didn’t. I was pretty sure it was military intelligence.
They used the cutting floor and their editing process to lie about what really happened and make it look like I was to be discredited even though anyone who knows me knows that‘s not possible because of what I’ve been through.
I think that was the basis of what was going on.
UFOPM: There was an impulse to discredit you publically through that venue.
Jef Harvey: Not so much me personally but that was the way they were going to get the job done. The “UFO Hunters” series, it’s job is to present scenarios that have been talked about all over the world and then present plausible-deniability scenarios like “Oh no, those were just spurious signals. Don’t worry, that was just stuff that was floating in the air.” And present these things without the key pieces of information, that we have an electronics intelligence operative here who knows electronics and knows the difference between a spurious signal and a solid signal above the ground level noise.
By doing that and doing that in other episodes they were able to do the same kind of a whitewash that Project Bluebook did: basically, take the most credible ones and put enough doubt in there that the average Joe Schmo sitting on the couch with his beer and chips would say “Ahh, just another nutcase.”
UFOPM: If they were serious they would never have omitted that part of your life. It’s obvious that while they were entertaining the topic in front of the audience, there was no real intention to move the issue towards any kind of disclosure or getting established in fact or truth.
Jef Harvey: From an operative’s point of view, and most of the friends I have that are still in intel and there’s quite a few white hats out there that are still in intel in many different areas, when you put together a television show like this, and in my opinion the History Channel’s nothing but disinformation. They’ve got so many facts wrong about history it’s crazy.
But the bottom line is that if you’re going to put a show like this together and you’re in a group who is designed to make sure that any information that comes to light is discredited, you’re going to put together a team that looks a lot like it’s kind of fair and impartial. You’ve got a skeptic in there. You’ve got a guy who was a skeptic but he saw something that just makes him question things, so he’s the middle ground guy and you’ve got Bill Byrnes who’s an ex-intel guy from the air force.
And if he’s not a plant, then neither is a rubber plant in an office building.
When I was on the show I planted information to see if they took a bite on it and they certainly did because I had a conversation with him a while ago. I said, “So Bill, why did you think that this just wasn’t real or there was nothing going on there even though nothing really came out about my intel days. And he said, “Well we’re pretty sure it was something like you were molested as a child."
I planted that information on their mics and they passed it on. They took the bite.
At that point I knew was dealing with a COINTELPRO situation and they were basically counter-intel.
