Not much is known about Cooper's background and education, beyond the information supplied in his own accounts. He claimed to have served in the United States Navy, the United States Air Force, and Naval Intelligence until his discharge in 1975. Public records only indicate a period of service in the Navy with a ratings code of E-5/Sergeant, including a tour of duty in Vietnam with two service medals. He then attended a junior college in California, and worked for several technical and vocational schools before starting to make his research known in 1988.
Critics argue that Cooper simply expanded the speculations of earlier conspiracists by incorporating government involvement with extraterrestrials as a central theme; in interviews before his death he made known that he regretted this, since by his account he was tricked into believing that he saw a UFO (organized by US intelligence probably in the assumption that he would start to talk about this experience).
Behold a Pale Horse
In 1991, Cooper's book Behold a Pale Horse was published. It became popular in prisons, especially, according to Mark Jacobson (who wrote a biography unsympathetic to Cooper), among Black inmates. Cooper, according to some accounts, influenced generations of Rappers with it. It routinely topped the lists of the most‐shoplifted books in the country.
The Hour of the Time
From 1992 until November 2001, he broadcast his radio show, "The Hour of the Time", via satellite hookups and shortwave frequencies from a studio in his house atop a hill in the small White Mountains town of Eagar, Arizona, 15 miles from the New Mexico border.
The "Citizens Agency for Joint Intelligence" (CAJI) was formed by cooper. According to him the biggest private intelligence gathering organization at the time. Presumably people he knew from early Internet message boards shared information from books and documentation to further understanding of history.

Clinton administration memo
Shortly after the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building Rush Limbaugh read a White House memo on the air during his broadcast which named William Cooper, "...the most dangerous radio host in America".
William Cooper announced on 28th June, 2001 on his radio programme, "Hour of the Time", that a major attack on USA was planned and that "Whatever they're going to blame on Usama bin Laden - don't you believe it".
He was fatally shot during a raid on his house on November 5, 2001. Federal authorities reported that Cooper had spent years evading execution of a 1998 arrest warrant, and according to a spokesman for the US Marshals Service, he vowed that "he would not be taken alive".
Quotes by William Cooper
|Knights of Malta||“The Knights of Malta is a world organization with its threads weaving through business, banking, politics, the CIA, other intelligence organizations, P2, religion, education, law, military, think tanks, foundations, the United States Information Agency, the United Nations, and numerous other organizations. The world head of the Knights of Malta is elected for a life term, with the approval of the Pope. The Knights of Malta have their own Constitution and are sworn to work toward the establishment of a New World Order with the Pope at its head. Knights of Malta members are also powerful members of the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations) and the Trilateral Commission.”|
|Mass shooting||“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of military firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the antigun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd amendment.”||1991||Waking Times|
