Albert "Bert" Newton Stubblebine III (born 1930) is a retired Major General in the United States Army. He was the commanding general of the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command from 1981 to 1984, when he retired from the Army. He was also known for his interest in psychic warfare and his hope to develop an army of soldiers with powers such as the ability to walk through walls.
Stubblebine graduated from the United States Military Academy and received a Masters degree in Chemical Engineering from Columbia University. His active duty career spanned 32 years, and he is credited with redesigning the U.S. Army intelligence architecture during his command of the United States Army Intelligence and Security Command from 1981 to 1984.
Other U.S. Army commands that he led included the Electronic Research and Development Command (ERADCOM) and the Intelligence and Security Command (INSCOM). Stubblebine was a key person in the U.S. military invasion of Grenada and was, according to a report published by the Daily Mail, "at the heart of America's military machine". He is a member of the Military Intelligence Hall of Fame.
After Stubblebine retired from the Army in 1984 he worked for BDM Corporation. He retired from that job in 1990. In 1994 his wife Geraldine was granted a divorce on grounds of adultery. He also acted as a part-time consultant to two government contractors, ERIM and Space Applications Corporation.
Stubblebine's statements questioning damage to the The Pentagon made during the September 11 attacks have been cited by conspiracy theorists such as David Ray Griffin to suggest that there was a conspiracy involving some elements of the United States government.
A proponent of psychic warfare, Stubblebine was involved in a U.S. Military project to create "a breed of 'super soldier'" who would "have the ability to become invisible at will and to walk through walls". Stubblebine reportedly attempted to walk through walls himself. He features prominently in Jon Ronson's book The Men Who Stare at Goats.
