Bedell left behind his profile at Amazon, as follows:
Location: Austin, TX USA
In My Own Words:
I'm interested in a lot of things, including: photons, molecules, and their interaction; biomolecular analysis and manipulation; microfabrication; CMOS integrated circuit design; DNA and quantum computing; economics; history; and biography.
The overt investigation by authorities is now centered on California, where he appears to have been in recent weeks. Perhaps he was with his sister, whose address (Hollister, CA) is listed for the delivery of his desired books. Or, as Amazon.com notes: "This Wish List includes a ship-to address, so you can pick out an item and have it sent to J. Patrick Bedell at checkout."
Bedell noted as his hometown that of Austin, Texas, which I'm sure, is getting attention too. It has been discovered that Bedell had a early interest in the 1991 alleged suicide of Marine Col. James Sabow, which Bedell felt was a covered-up murder.
Bedell gave the titles of 55 books on his wish list. Most are conspiracy, historical intelligence, and related books, including the following picks:
#1. The Commission: The Uncensored History of the 9/11 Investigation by Philip Shenon (added July 25, 2009).
#2. The Immaculate Deception: Bush Crime Family Exposed by Russell S. Bowen (added July 21, 2009),
and all the way back in time to items such as,
#51. Barry & 'the Boys': The CIA, the Mob and America's Secret History by Daniel Hopsicker (listed on December 18, 2001).
Some seem harder to understand, for outsiders, such as
#10. Hell Ranch: The Nightmare Tale of Voodoo, Drugs & Death in Matamoros by Clifford L. Linedecker (added March 7, 2007).
In the midst of his list is
#12. The Black World of UFOs: Exempt from Disclosure by Robert M. Collins with Richard C. Doty (added February 5, 2007).
Here is what Amazon passes along from the producers (Peregrine Communications) of this UFO book:
Not made on this Earth:
"You are relating our physics to their crafts - cant do that. That was our mistake for many years. To get into outer space, they use THEIR system. To understand their system, you must understand their physics..."
--A number of named sources some of whom worked at Groom Lake for over 40 years will tell their story of Area 51, and S4.
And, Rick Doty as a contributor confirms many of the stories of Bob Lazar.
--So then, what is the Crystal Rectangle CR according to those DIA TS/Code word documents? Its an H5 Alien Energy Device that can power the ISS, but yet no bigger than a 9 x 12 cardboard box less than 3 inches thick.
--Why is Los Alamos LANL having so many problems with the reverse-engineering, specifically, the anti-gravity two tier propulsion system and materials. The Alien Propulsion System is described in detail.
According to a Top Secret/Umbra 5 November 1961 National Intelligence Estimate NIE propulsion studies were being conducted at LANL.
--From the Roswell Incident of July 1947 where were the recovered artifacts kept at Wright-Patterson AFB?
--EBE-2 & those CIA Secret/Top Secret memos said to be real by a number of sources. Kit Green as a former CIA employee claimed he saw the same type of stationary used for the memos and some of the key acronyms.
--JFK & Mj-12:Two separate sources support the fact that there was an EXCOM Executive Committee, who were also members of 5412 meeting at the time/date specified in the Project Jehovah MJ-12 document which mentions NSA decoding the Alien Codex and the CIAs MJEBEN program.
--The 1991 Government Disclosure effort that flopped.
--Did Area 51 get started in 1955 or, was it really 1951?
Also, there is an "About the Author":
Robert M. Collins: A former Air Force Intelligence Officer (Chief Analyst in theoretical Physics) at the Foreign Technology Division (FTD) now NASIC (after three name changes) Wright-Patterson AFB Ohio with an extensive background in Aircraft Avionics Systems, Ground Communications, and Engineering Physics (Electro-Optics, Plasma, and Nuclear Physics) totaling over 22 years. His first UFO contacts were made at FTD starting in 1985 and continue to this day with research and the publication of four book editions of Exempt from Disclosure.
Rick C. Doty: In the spring of 1978 he was recruited by the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI) to become an agent. He passed all the necessary requirements and tests and was sent to the AFOSI Academy in Washington, D.C. Successfully graduating from the academy he was sent to District 17, OSI, Kirtland AFB New Mexico in May 1979. During that first year he was briefed into a special program. The program involved the collection of intelligence and counter-intelligence information for UFOs and "other foreign intelligence." Recent accomplishments (along with other "associates") include consulting work for both the X-Files and Spielberg's "Taken."
In actuality, the book has been found by many serious ufologists to be a rambling treatise on such apparent mythical or hoaxed organizations like MJ12 and the mostly discredited tales of Bob Lazar. Indeed, Lazar's critics have pointed out that "Lazar's credibility crumbled" after "schools he was supposed to have attended had no record of him, while others in the scientific community had no memory of ever meeting him." This not-terribly-well-edited book fits into J. Patrick Bedell's wish list well, it seems.
Wikipedia appears to have already taken down Bedell's self-authored page; however Bedell's web footprints are being gathered by some rightwing bloggers who are trying to tie Bedell's actions to a bizarre brand, in their thoughts, of "liberal" mindset (e.g. here, here, and here).
All I can say, at this point, is that I was glad to not see The Copycat Effect on his "wish list." As it turns out, Bedell's actions fit perfectly into the mayhem that has visited this country in the form of "active shooters" since the Ft. Hood shootings.
