As U.K. Releases UFO Files, Former UFO Project Chief Apologizes For ‘Spin And Dirty Tricks’ (Exclusive)

This image from 2004 was taken of the town hall in Retford, Nottinghamshire. When the image was developed, it revealed what appears to be a flying saucer in the sky (right side of image). A senior government image analyst ruled there was insufficient information to determine what the object was.

As the British National Archives continues to releaseUFO-related documents, the former Ministry of Defense (MoD) UFO Project chief is openly admitting to being part of what he claims was a U.K. policy of ridiculing UFO reports and the people who reported them.

The U.K. made public 34 previously-classified files, totaling about 9,000 pages of documents covering the years 1985 to 2007. For three of those years, 1991 to 1994, Nick Pope was in charge of the official MoD office.

“What’s abundantly clear from these files is that, while in public we were desperately pushing the line that this was of no defense interest,” Pope told The Huffington Post. “We couldn’t say ‘There’s something in our air space; pilots see them; they’re tracked on radar; sometimes we scramble jets to chase these things, but we can’t catch them.’ This would be an admission that we’d lost control of our own air space, and such a position would be untenable.”

“Every time we got a report from a pilot, we were checking the radar tapes. So it was an interesting sleight of hand. We were telling the public we’re not interested, this is all nonsense, but in reality, we were desperately chasing our tails and following this up in great detail,” he added.

One file reveals how officials were afraid to be embarrassed if the public learned that UFO research was hindered by a lack of funds and higher priorities.

Another case, from 2007, took place in the vicinity of the Channel Islands and involved a small commercial aircraft.

“The pilot and several of his passengers saw a UFO, which they said was essentially a mile long,” Pope recounted. “And several other pilots saw it, but said, ‘We’re not going to report this.’ And here’s the great little get-out-of-jail-free-card for the MoD: Just by a matter of maybe a few hundred meters, it turned out that this was in French air space, so MoD was given this little get out to say, ‘Well, it happened in French air space, so it’s not an issue for us.’ Clearly, that was an absolutely outrageous abrogation of responsibility.”

A file from 1993 (while Pope was chief of the UFO Project) describes how European Union funds had been wasted on a report that included a theory that aliens had established a base in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

It turns out that Pope may have been directly involved with this case.

“I’m a little bit apologetic about this because obviously, when I was in MoD, I had to play this game myself. To really achieve our policy of downplaying the UFO phenomenon, we would use a combination of ‘spin and dirty tricks.’

“We used terms like UFO buffs and UFO spotters — terms that mean these people are nut jobs. In other words, we were implying that this is just a very somewhat quaint hobby that people have as opposed to a serious research interest.”

But Pope said the ridicule policy went much further than that.

“Another trick would be deliberately using phrases like ‘little green men.’ We were trying to do two things: either to kill any media story on the subject, or if a media story ran, insure that it ran in such a way that it would make the subject seem ridiculous and that it would make people who were interested in this seem ridiculous.”

Pope further admits that he may have been the one who drafted actual MoD statements that contributed to the ridicule policy.

“If it was my words, then I apologize, I’m very sorry for that. I believe in open government and freedom of information. I believe that the UFO phenomenon does raise important defense, national security and air safety issues, and if I helped kill any initiative on that, I’m deeply sorry.”

Some U.K. cases were apparently easier than others in trying to make them seem non-credible. Like the file that describes UFOs reported at the June 2003 Glastonbury Music Festival.

“It was very easy to find an incident where something is seen at an event like a rock concert,” Pope noted. “You don’t even need to say a thing without the public or media perception being that drugs and alcohol might have played a part. It was all part of the way in which we spun the subject, to try and discredit it.”

Despite the thousands of pages of documents released — with one final batch of files yet to come, sometime early next year — Pope concedes there’s still no written evidence confirming alien visits to Earth.

“Not just yet — there’s no spaceship-in-a-hangar smoking gun. However, there are plenty of sightings that I think show that we’re dealing with more than just aircraft lights and weather balloons.”

The latest 34 U.K. UFO files can be downloaded free of charge for the next month at the National Archives website.

Disclosure Wars: BBC Psyops Against Richard Dolan?

The BBC appears to have just launched a psyops attack against Richard Dolan, one of the top leaders in the UFO/ET pro-disclosure movement. Of course this kind of thing is hard to prove, but if it looks like a duck to me and quacks like a duck then I will deal with it as a duck. I recently devised a plan and I hope others pick up on to counter attack these perceived psyop attacks. My first article in this vein was MUFON Psyops?http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2011/07/mufon-psyops.html I had perceived a potential gift by Mufon’s non disclosure leadership to non-disclosure CIA assets in the mainstream presshttp://mtracy9.tripod.com/cia_instructions.htm and so ran a article exposing this perceived Psyops and the article made it to the top of the Bing search engine using search words MUFON Musgrave. My thinking is that when non-disclosure hit pieces come out the the corporate press people will do word searches for more information and thus can access a pro-disclosure perspective.

As to a possible BBC psyops Richard Dolan posted the following to his Facebook page. “Wow. Just did a BBC TV interview which reminded me of an attempted Mafia hit. Total setup complete with all the woowoo music and nonsense. I did not play the game they wanted me to, and did a brief and positive 2 minutes, sticking to my game plan. As a result (I assume) they cancelled the video debate I was to have with a UK skeptic later this morning. In my experience, BBC has seldom played fair on UFOs

This was followed by additional posts. Richard said. “Yes, it was SO obvious what they were trying to do. It would be funny in some alternate reality. I believe that BBC has some sort of mandate to do this — to smear the topic when they handle it at the national level, which this was. Local affiliates may have more leeway, but at the national level, they will let the topic go only so far, and no further. And in my case, it was an obvious attempt at a “silly season” portrayal of the topic, which I was not playing along with, and they obviously knew it.”

With the social networks and the Internet we don’t just have to roll over and take hit after hit against UFO/ET disclosure of extraterrestrial life. I hope my writing inspires others to also write credible Internet articles counter attacking these apparent mainstream non-disclosure illegal psyops operations. These articles then will rise up in the search engines holding the mainstream press accountable when the psyops programs hit the public and the Internet.

Richard has been in the UK speaking at the Third Annual Leeds Exopolitics Conference. http://exopolitics-leeds.co.uk/

(Edit in: Since I wrote this article Nick Pope has admitted being involved in a UK MOD psyops operation against the public and the BBC backed out of this attack against Dolan.
