Mysticism As A Key To Scientific Breakthroughs
by Owen Waters

Mystics are visionaries. That’s what gives them the edge in scientific research.

Newton, Faraday and Einstein were all examples of mystics. Most of their research occurred, not in a laboratory, but within their visionary consciousness.

Mysticism is a learned skill, just like learning to ride a bicycle, and it is an exact science. You can develop this incredibly useful skill and gain that visionary edge, not just in scientific research, but in any endeavor that you plan to undertake.

A History of Government Management of UFO Perceptions through Film and Television

UFOs and aliens beings have often been portrayed in mass media, whether it be movies or television shows. Most of these appearances were however heavily edited and calculated by the American government in order to communicate a specific attitude towards this mysterious phenomenon. What is the purpose of these efforts? This article looks at the fascinating history of government involvement in UFO-related movies and television shows.

This article originally appeared in the magazine 49th Parallel, Vol. 25 (Spring 2011) and is reproduced on Vigilant Citizen with the permission of the authors: Robbie Graham (University of Bristol)* & Matthew Alford (University of Bath)†.

* Robbie Graham is a doctoral candidate at the University of Bristol for a PhD examining Hollywood’s historical representations of UFOs and extraterrestrial visitation. He is also creator of the blog Silver Screen Saucers.

† Matthew Alford is the author of Reel Power: Hollywood Cinema and American Supremacy (Pluto Press, 2010). He received his PhD in Cinema and Politics from the University of Bath in 2008.

On 22 January 1958, the popular CBS television show Armstrong Circle Theatre presented an entire programme dedicated to the subject of unidentified flying objects entitled: “UFO: Enigma of the Skies.” Among the high-profile experts invited to speak on the show, retired US Navy Major Donald Keyhoe – director of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) – was notable for his outspoken views on government secrecy surrounding the UFO phenomenon. Arguing against UFO reality on the programme were astronomer and vehement UFO sceptic Donald Menzel and Air Force representative Col. Spencer Whedon of the Air Technical Intelligence Center (ATIC). Their task should have been an easy one as the show’s content had been scripted in advance by CBS in conjunction with the US Air Force, and all guests – especially Keyhoe – had been instructed to read their preapproved material from a teleprompter.

When it came time for Keyhoe to speak, in frustration he veered from his script and stated to the nation: “And now I’m going to reveal something that has never been disclosed before…” 1 The rest of his announcement went unheard by television viewers: unbeknownst to Keyhoe, his microphone had been cut by the station. Keyhoe continued:

“For the last six months, we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy about UFOs. If all the evidence we have given this committee is made public in open hearings, it will absolutely prove that the UFOs are real machines under intelligent control.”2

After the show, CBS was inundated with calls and letters from viewers demanding to know why Keyhoe’s audio had been cut: “Call it what you like,” wrote one viewer, “but it appeared to be a very shocking display of censorship; and certainly offensive to the intelligence of the American public…” 3 Nine days later, CBS admitted it had been subject to official censorship. In a letter to a disgruntled viewer dated 31 January, 1958, CBS director of editing, Herbert A. Carlborg, stated:

“This program had been carefully cleared for security reasons. Therefore, it was the responsibility of this network to insure [sic] performance in accordance with pre-determined security standards. Any indication that there would be a deviation might lead to statements that neither this network nor the individuals on the program were authorized to release.”4

As will be evidenced in this essay, the US government’s historical efforts to censor UFO-related media products extend considerably further than the Keyhoe incident and have noticeably affected the content of numerous films and TV products over a six-decade time span. Before moving to examine some of these cases, however, it is necessary to ask: why should the US government wish to exert its influence over media representations of a subject as seemingly fanciful as UFOs? The answer to this question becomes clear with even a cursory glance at the government’s early documentation on the subject, which reflects a sustained concern about UFOs (if not a consensus on their origins) at the highest levels of the US military.

Background

The US government’s interest in UFOs dates back to the summer of 1947 when America’s national security apparatus was besieged by hundreds of reports from concerned citizens and military personnel of what appeared to be metallic disk-shaped objects traversing the nation’s skies, sometimes in formation and often at impossible speeds. On 24 June private aviator and businessman Kenneth Arnold reported seeing a chain of nine unusual objects over the Cascade Mountains in Washington State. Arnold described the objects’ movement as being “like a saucer if you skip it across the water,” inspiring the press to dub the mystery objects “flying saucers.” 5Many hundreds of saucer sightings were reported worldwide in the months to follow.

In 1948 the US Air Force produced its Top Secret and highly controversial “Estimate of the Situation,” an official report concluding flying saucers to be interplanetary in origin.6 Other factions within the Air Force, however, favoured the more palatable (though perhaps no less alarming) idea that the saucers were the product of technological innovations in the Soviet Union. Either way, secrecy regarding the issue was of paramount importance as the question of whether the objects were physically real had already been affirmatively answered in the minds of America’s military leaders. In a once secret letter to Air Force Headquarters dated 23 September 1947, General Nathan Twining, head of Air Materiel Command (AMC), stated that flying saucers were “real and not visionary or fictitious,” that they had “metallic or light reflecting surface[s],” were “circular or elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domed on top,” and were sometimes sighted in “well-kept formation flights varying from three to nine objects.” 7 In a previously Top Secret Canadian government document dating from 1950, Wilbert Smith – head of the Canadian government’s UFO research project, Magnet, noted with regard to UFOs that “The matter is the most highly classified subject in the United States government, rating higher even than the H-bomb.” 8

Today, numerous governments worldwide maintain dedicated and costly UFO study projects – collating and often investigating what collectively amount to thousands of UFO sighting reports made annually to authorities. In South America alone, the governments of Argentina,9Uruguay,10  Peru,11 Chile12 and Brazil13 either operate UFO investigations units or actively collect UFO sighting reports through their militaries. Other governments, including those of France,14New Zealand,15 Denmark,16 Canada17 and Russia,18 have in recent years released to the public thousands of pages of previously classified UFO files.

The UK government also is engaging with the public on the UFO issue through an ongoing process which has seen the release of thousands of previously classified UFO files through the National Archives.19 According to the UK Ministry of Defense, UFOs (or UAPs – Unidentified Aerial Phenomena – as the MoD refers to them) “certainly exist,” but are “still barely understood.”20 In a formerly secret 400-page assessment of the UFO phenomenon released in 2006 under the Freedom of Information Act, the UK Defence Intelligence Staff acknowledged that:

“The phenomena occur on a daily, world-wide basis… That UAP exist is indisputable. Credited with the ability to hover, land, take-off, accelerate to exceptional velocities and vanish, they can reportedly alter their direction of flight suddenly and clearly can exhibit aerodynamic characteristics well beyond those of any known aircraft or missile – either manned or unmanned.”21

The report also notes that “attempts by other nations to intercept the unexplained objects, which can clearly change position faster than an aircraft, have reportedly already caused fatalities,” and warns that, with the increasing density of UAP reports in the UK air defence region, “a small possibility may exist… of a head-on encounter with a UAP.”22

There appears, then, to be a broad consensus among the governments cited above: UFOs are objectively real – albeit currently not fully understood by science – worthy, at best, of focused study and, at the very least, of sustained monitoring in the interests of aviation safety and national security. Standing outside of this consensus is the United States, which is conspicuous for its almost total silence on the UFO issue, which it has maintained since the closure in 1969 of the Air Force’s long-running UFO investigations project: Blue Book.23 Despite shunning discussion of the phenomenon today, the US government’s historical concerns regarding UFOs clearly represent a significant passage – if not an entire chapter – in the history of its early Cold War machinations. Yet academic discourse surrounding the accepted historical meta-narrative of the US national security state rarely, if ever, accommodates serious discussion of UFOs. This is owed to the fact that, as observed by political scientists Alexander Wendt and Raymond Duvall: “Considerable work goes into ignoring UFOs, constituting them as objects only of ridicule and scorn… to that extent one may speak of a ‘UFO taboo,’ a prohibition in the authoritative public sphere on taking UFOs seriously.” 24

In turn, details of the government’s involvement in UFO-themed entertainment products are meagre in the pages of cinema and TV history, with the only substantive work on the subject to date having been produced by historian Lawrence Suid.25 Although Suid’s work is undeniably valuable (it is referenced extensively throughout this paper), it mischaracterises UFOs as a minor PR concern for the military – when in fact they were an issue of great sensitivity that initially raised serious questions regarding national security – and fails to acknowledge several cases of film and TV productions that the authorities actively sought to manipulate for political ends in line with government UFO policy.

This essay builds on Suid’s work, filling in the gaps, bringing it up to date and elucidating further the government’s historical motivations for exerting its influence over UFO-themed film and television productions. The government’s historical engagement with such fare can most thoroughly be discussed with regard to the Department of Defense (DoD), which has worked extensively with Hollywood in exchange for the right to edit scripts for sixty years with the principal aim of encouraging recruitment and retention of personnel, as detailed by Suid in his extensive tome Guts and Glory (2002) and by journalist David Robb. However, in practice the Pentagon’s remit is more wide-ranging, as it routinely promotes its own version of US history, as with its sanitisation of the military’s public image through its removal of a key character in Black Hawk  Down (2002) who in real life had been convicted of raping a twelve-year-old boy;26 when it refused to cooperate on the feature film Counter Measures (1998) on the grounds that it did not want to remind the public of the Iran-Contra scandal;27 or when it removed a joke about “losing Vietnam” in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997).28

The UFO Problem: Managing Perceptions

With regard to UFOs, the government’s efforts at managing public perceptions are very well established, with the prime example relating to the so-called “Roswell Incident” of July 1947 when the Roswell Army Air Force (RAAF) hastily announced to the press its “capture” of a downed “flying saucer” on an isolated ranch in the deserts of New Mexico.29 A few hours later, the RAAF changed its story to the effect that what had been recovered, in fact, was a common weather balloon.30The United States Air Force (USAF) was to change this story again in 1995 with the announcement that the “weather balloon” had been a Top Secret high-altitude spy balloon.31This story was then officially re-written in 1997 to account for a number of apparently non-human bodies eyewitnesses claimed were recovered from the crash. The bodies, said the USAF, were human corpses, test dummies, or both.32

It is unsurprising, then, in light of its historical headaches relating to the UFO issue, that when filmmakers working on UFO-themed productions have sought cooperation from the Pentagon the response has been dismissive: deny cooperation or else request script changes that de-legitimise the study of the phenomenon. This process of official de-legitimisation can be traced back to recommendations made in 1953 by the CIA-sponsored Robertson Panel, a group of leading scientists assembled by US government physicist Howard Percy Robertson for the task of reviewing the Air Force’s UFO files. The Robertson Panel’s main findings were that UFOs were not a direct threat to national security. Nevertheless, it suggested the Air Force begin a “debunking” effort employing the talents of psychiatrists, astronomers and celebrities with the goal of demystifying UFO reports.33 The reasoning for this recommendation as officially stated lay in the belief that the Soviets might try to “mask” an actual invasion of the USA by causing a wave of false UFO reports to swamp the Pentagon and other military agencies.34 Their formal recommendation was:

“That the national security agencies take immediate steps to strip the Unidentified Flying Objects of the special status they have been given and the aura of mystery they have unfortunately acquired.” 35

The panel further stated that this should “be accomplished by mass media such as television [and] motion pictures…” and gave specific reference to Walt Disney.36 It is not clear to what extent or how successfully these recommendations were implemented. However, even as late as 1966 the Robertson Panel wielded a demonstrable influence over media representations of UFOs in the CBS TV broadcast of UFOs: Friend, Foe, or Fantasy? (1966), an anti-UFO documentary narrated by Walter Cronkite. In a personal letter addressed to former Robertson Panel Secretary Frederick C. Durant, panel member Dr Thornton Page confides that he “helped organize the documentary around the Robertson Panel conclusions,”37 even though this was thirteen years after the panel had disbanded and despite the fact that he was personally sympathetic to the existence of flying saucers.

The mentality of the CIA-Robertson Panel was present in other productions during the 1950s, not least in the aforementioned Keyhoe CBS/ USAF censorship case discussed earlier. Also notable is the 1956 documentary, Unidentified Flying Objects: The True Story of Flying Saucers, which prompted the USAF to draw up contingency plans to counteract the anticipated fallout from the film upon its release. The director of the USAF’s official UFO investigations unit, Project Blue Book, Captain George T. Gregory, was tasked with monitoring not only the film’s production process, but its public and critical reception. Believing that the film would stir up a “storm of public controversy,” the USAF set about preparing a special case file that would debunk every saucer sighting examined in the movie and even went so far as to have three of its Blue Book officers provide “technical assistance” to the filmmakers in an effort to control the content of the documentary.38

Another case in this vein relates to a UFO-themed episode of the Steve Canyon TV series (1958–1959) that raised the ire of the US Air Force. Backed by Chesterfield Cigarettes and produced at Universal Studios with the full cooperation of the USAF, the NBC show chronicled the live-action exploits of Milton Caniff’s famous comic strip character. The episode to which the USAF took objection was entitled “Project UFO” and saw Colonel Steve Canyon investigate a spate of flying saucer sightings reported to a local Air Force base. According to aviation historian James H. Farmer, “This was an episode that the Air Force did not really want to be aired,” because the UFO subject was “a hot potato.”39

By the time the USAF had finished with the script, it was, according to Farmer, “pretty tame… compared to the earlier renditions.”40 In the episode as aired the UFO sightings are attributed to a combination of hoax-induced hysteria and – in support of the USAF’s original Roswell cover story – misidentifications of weather balloons. Producer John Ellis of the Milton Caniff Estate (which owns Steve Canyon) explained: “Every single page got re-written, and re-written, and re-written…”41 David Haft, the show’s producer, was more to the point in his recollection of the USAF’s reaction when he submitted the first script draft for official approval: “Oh, oh, oh, oh! No, no, no, no!”42 Haft also noted that the USAF had difficulty in deciding what was acceptable for broadcast.43

In one of the earliest drafts of “Project UFO,” Steve Canyon speaks to his Commanding Officer, Colonel Jamison, in defence of a civilian UFO witness: “Why call him a jerk?” asks Canyon, “Seems to me like he acted like a pretty solid, clearheaded citizen…”44 This dialogue was removed. Elsewhere in the draft, Canyon appears to be enthusiastic about flying saucers. At one point, when a fresh UFO report comes into the base from the local town, Canyon, “Jumps to [his] feet, rushes to [the] door,” and cries “This I gotta see!” before making “a hurried exit.”45 In the final scene as originally written, Canyon is actually seen opening a book on flying saucers, “and sits there quietly reading…”46 This scene failed to make it to the final draft, and, in the version as aired, Canyon’s excitement about UFOs is replaced with scepticism or plain indifference. An entire plot strand concerning the recovery and scientific analysis of what is initially suspected to be flying saucer debris (but which eventually turns out to be nothing of the sort) was removed. The draft included dialogue like: That thing [flying saucer] dropped a small metal ball enclosing an electrical apparatus so intricate, so ingenious, nobody yet has been able to figure out its purpose,” and, “the metal wouldn’t respond to any of the standard tests.” 47

Despite the rewrites, the USAF preferred that the episode not be aired at all. “It got stuck on a shelf,” says Ellis in his DVD commentary, “it was finished… but they held on until near the end of the series to air it.”48 Indeed, it was only through a last act of defiance on the part of the show’s producers toward the end of its run in 1959 that the episode was screened at all.49

Even prior to the Robertson Panel’s formation, government attitudes to UFO themed film and TV productions in the 1950s were hostile, as Lawrence Suid observes:

“The decision of whether the military should cooperate with a filmmaker depended not only on the way the military would be portrayed but also on whether the film differed from official Department of Defense positions on subjects like UFOs and alien life forms.”50

However, concerns were raised by at least one film not even seeking military cooperation. The Flying Saucer (1950) was America’s very first UFO movie and its director, Mikel Conrad, claimed publicly whilst in production that he had managed to secure genuine footage of a real flying saucer for use in his movie. In September 1949, Conrad told the Ohio Journal Herald, “I have scenes of the saucer landing, taking off, flying and doing tricks.”51 Shortly thereafter Conrad became the subject of a two-month official Air Force investigation. Documents released under the Freedom of Information Act reveal that an agent of the Air Force Office of Special Investigations was dispatched not only to interrogate Conrad about his claims but also to attend the first private screening of his completed film. Unsurprisingly, Conrad’s story was soon revealed as an elaborate marketing scam designed to promote what was, in reality, a tedious and uneventful movie.52Nevertheless, the Conrad case is significant for its demonstration of the high degree of seriousness with which the USAF regarded the issue of media representations of the burgeoning UFO phenomenon.

Also in 1950, the USAF refused cooperation with RKO pictures on The Thing from Another World (1951). In a Pentagon meeting with the film’s producer, Edward Lasker, USAF officers explained that they had just spent half a million dollars proving that flying saucers did not exist and asked: “Why should we help you make a picture about one?” 53They emphasised that “the Air Force will not participate in any activity that could be interpreted as a perpetuation of the flying saucer hoax.”54

The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), which depicted a flying saucer landing in Washington DC, was similarly turned down by the USAF, although the Pentagon ultimately provided limited assistance through the National Guard because, it said, in the event of an alien invasion, the Armed Services would indeed defend the nation.55 In other words, although there were clear attempts to prevent the spread of the UFO mythology through the 1950s, there was at least some flexibility built into the Pentagon’s criteria for working with UFO-related productions.

In 1969, the US closed Project Blue Book, its systematic study of UFOs, concluding that these sightings did not represent a threat to national security nor technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge.56 Yet the government-media model of non-cooperation and script manipulation remained generally true into the 1970s and beyond. In 1976, several arms of the government refused to cooperate on Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977), his classic blockbuster imagining alien contact with humans.

Major Sidney Shaw in the National Guard Bureau in Washington wrote to Columbia Pictures:

“We have reviewed the script and believe it would be inappropriate for the Air Force or National Guard Bureau to support the production. In 1969 the USAF completed a study which concluded there is no evidence concerning the existence of UFOs. We have not been involved in UFOs since that study other than answering queries about the study. The proposed film leaves the distinct impression that UFOs, in fact, do exist. It also involves the government and military in a big cover up of the existence of UFOs. These two points are counter to Air Force and Department of Defense policy and make support to the production inappropriate.”57

NASA also rejected the chance to cooperate with Close Encounters, even though the space agency had been known for being, “more flexible, sometimes to the breaking point” – in Suid’s words – over its relative willingness to cooperate with films that showed them in an unflattering light, including productions like Marooned (1969) and even the NASA conspiracy movie Capricorn One (1977).58 Suid, however, in his analysis of this case, neglects to mention that not only did NASA refuse cooperation to Spielberg, but that the space agency sought actively to convince the director not to make the film at all. In a 1978 interview for the journal Cinema Papers Spielberg said:

“I really found my faith [in UFO reality] when I heard that the government was opposed to the film. If NASA took the time to write me a 20 page letter, then I knew there must be something happening. I had wanted cooperation from them, but when they read the script they got very angry and felt that it was a film that would be dangerous. I think they mainly wrote the letter because Jaws convinced so many people around the world that there were sharks in toilets and bathtubs, not just in the oceans and rivers. They were afraid the same kind of epidemic would happen with UFOs.”59

An Era of Greater Flexibility

However, by the 1980s it was at least possible for a film to mention UFOs without the DoD trying to stifle it, starting with the children’s fantasy Invaders from Mars (1986), which was granted full cooperation from DoD. This cooperation, however, was based on the fact that the film did not draw directly from established UFO mythology; that the traditional “flying saucer” motif received minimal screen time; and because the film presented positive images of the military. Major Fred Peck of the LA Public Affairs Office and his deputy, Chief Warrant Officer Chas Henry, helped director Tobe Hooper visualise how Marines might actually react in the event of the invasion. Peck commented that, “Marines have no qualms about killing Martians,” a line which made it into the film.60 Peck and his Deputy also helped Hooper identify Marine reservists to constitute the cinematic leatherneck unit and recruited a retired public affairs officer, Captain Dale Dye, to prepare the extras.61

In a return to its old ways, in the mid-1990s, the Pentagon denied cooperation to Independence Day (1996) although depictions of UFOs were not its only concern over the picture. In fact, Tom McCollum of the Army Public Affairs Office in Los Angeles had a long list of changes, mostly quite technical.62 Still, it is notable that among its list of recommended changes was the request that any government connection to Area 51 or to Roswell be eliminated from the film.63 Maj. Nancy LaLuntas of the US Marines’ Los Angeles Public Affairs Office stated explicitly that the Pentagon would not support a film that perpetuates the Roswell “myth” and added that the “DoD cannot hide info from [the] President (i.e. aliens and [a space]ship in custody).”64

In contrast to its disapproval of Independence Day, the DoD had no qualms about cooperating with Steven Spielberg for his 2005 remake of War of the Worlds. As was the case with Invaders from Mars, though, Spielberg’s film did not draw in any readily identifiable way from modern UFO mythology as its narrative featured no government conspiracy, no UFO-related terminology (such as “Area 51”) or reference to historical UFO-related events (such as Roswell); nor, indeed, did it feature any UFOs in the conventional sense – only the ‘tripods’ of HG Wells’s source material. So, while War of the Worlds projected to audiences a vivid, vérité rendering of what a post-9/11 alien invasion in reality might look like, crucially for the Pentagon it also provided a recruitment-friendly representation of the professionalism and sheer fire power with which the US military would respond to such an invasion.65

In the interests of PR, the DoD also saw fit to lend extensive support to Spielberg’s 2007 production of Transformers,66 despite the film’s plot drawing obliquely from UFO mythology. The USAF provided director Michael Bay with billions-of-dollars worth of state-of-the-art hardware for use in the film, including the F-117 Nighthawk and the F-22 Raptor fighter. The DoD saw Transformers as an ideal opportunity to bolster the image of the US military, which it achieved by exercising its considerable contractual power throughout the film’s production. As such, the onscreen military is portrayed forcefully as an unswervingly heroic and righteous institution, making the film “a great recruiting tool,” according to Pentagon employee Chief Master Sgt. Mike Gasparetto.67

Like War of the Worlds, however, despite it dealing with the subject of aliens, Transformers was unlikely to have prompted a wave of flying saucer sightings as it contained no UFOs, per se, only giant transforming robots. The DoD’s involvement in the film was also notably self-serving beyond the primary purpose of recruitment and can be seen as an attempt on the DoD’s part to cleanse its image with respect to its troubled history with the UFO phenomenon. In one scene, for example, the Pentagon is absolved of complicity in what we learn has been a decades-long cover-up of alien visitations. Blame for the conspiracy is instead placed at the doorstep of the extraconstitutional “Sector 7,” a “special access division of the government” which has been concealing its “Top Secret” alien research since 1934 within “Special Access Projects.” Crucially, the cover-up has been conducted without the knowledge or consent of the Secretary of Defense (played by Jon Voigt), who is outraged when the truth is finally revealed to him: “And you didn’t think the United States military might need to know that you’re keeping a hostile alien robot frozen in the basement?”68

An Unknown Agenda

Anomalous within the pattern thus far established of government hostilities toward UFO-mythologising in films and TV shows are perhaps two major cases in which various state agencies chose to cooperate on productions in which UFOs were depicted as being not only real, but distinctly extraterrestrial.

In 1979, Oscar-winning Disney animator Ward Kimball claimed that in the 1950s the USAF had approached Walt Disney himself to request cooperation on a documentary that would help acclimatise the public to extraterrestrial reality but that the project was abandoned when the USAF reneged on its offer to provide “real” UFO footage.69 Indirect support for Kimball’s claim was offered in 1997 by Philip Corso, a retired Lieutenant Colonel and former Chief of the Pentagon’s Foreign Technology desk.70 Corso claimed that the production of flying saucer movies was secretly encouraged by government-led UFO study groups in the 1950s to acclimatise the public to extraterrestrials whilst simultaneously manipulating perceptions of the phenomenon; he referred to this alleged strategy as: “camouflage through limited disclosure.”71 However, the testimonies of Kimball and Corso are just that: testimonies, and are not supported by documented and physical evidence. Still, other cases along these lines are rather more substantial. For the 1982 blockbuster ET: The Extra-Terrestrial, for example, it is known that producer Kathleen Kennedy and director Steven Spielberg brainstormed with NASA scientists on the likely official response to an alien’s arrival. This collaboration shaped sections of the movie, including the scene when NASA personnel enter a sealed-off suburban home in search of E.T. The producers also asked NASA what sort of planet E.T. might call home. They came up with a “little green planet” populated by “little mushroom farmers,” Kennedy says. E.T.’s biology reflected this scenario – the little alien “was closer to a plant than a biological human being,” Kennedy says.72Cooperation in this case was likely offered as a low-level courtesy due to the fact that the film’s representation of NASA was generally favourable – the professionalism and humanity of the space agency’s personnel shining through even in the face an extraterrestrial bio-hazard – and because its story was not so much concerned with the UFO phenomenon as with the fantastical friendship between a boy and an alien.

There was more comprehensive, high-level cooperation from the DoD for the production of one particularly unusual film, though – the documentary, UFOs: Past, Present and Future (1974), which considered the extra-terrestrial hypothesis in a much more serious light. The film’s director, Robert Emenegger, was given unprecedented access to DoD facilities, including the highly sensitive Holloman Air Force Base and the Pentagon itself. “The Secretary of the Air Force [Robert Seamans] gave the order to co-operate,” explained the director, who was granted time with highranking military officers apparently well-versed in UFO-related matters, among them Colonel William Coleman, a former spokesman for Project Blue Book, and Colonel George Weinbrenner, then head of Foreign Technology at Wright Patterson Air Force Base.73 The film even included a detailed reconstruction of what Emenegger claims the USAF told him was a real extraterrestrial landing at Holloman Air Force Base in 1971, complete with artistic renderings of the alleged aliens. The USAF even provided Emenegger with a few seconds of footage showing what appeared to be an unusual, bright object descending slowly and vertically over the base. These frames, Emenegger claims, were taken from the “genuine” alien landing footage and officially authorised for use in his completed documentary, which, in line with a recommendation by the USAF, presented the incident as “one that might happen in the future – or perhaps could have happened already.”74 Emenegger claims that he was approached by the USAF to initiate this project, which would be in line with his scholarly interest in propaganda, his history as a Vice President at Grey Advertising, and his personal involvement in the Nixon Campaign to Re-Elect the President (CREEP).75 The film also received support from the Army, the Navy and NASA, with the latter furnishing Emenegger’s production with previously unreleased photographs of what appeared to be UFOs taken in space by Gemini astronauts. It is hard to divine an explanation for the DoD’s actions in this case other than as some kind of public reaction test or an attempt by the Pentagon to be more open about its continued monitoring of the phenomenon.

The government also apparently provided assistance on Disney’s 2009 live action family film Race to Witch Mountain, despite the film’s plot drawing extensively from UFO mythology (with references both to Area 51 and Roswell) and despite its presentation of a sinister government cover-up. Working within the narrative constraints of the film’s previous incarnation, Escape to Witch Mountain (1975), director Andy Fickman – a self-confessed UFO enthusiast – took pride in infusing his remake with as many elements as possible drawn directly from UFO literature.

When Fickman first received the script from Disney it had been “more of a comedy,” but the director felt the material should be treated seriously and wanted to make use of events, debates and terminology stemming from the UFO research field: “I’m willing to do this movie,” Fickman told Disney, “but I want to ground it in as much reality as I possibly can.”76

Although the vast majority of the film’s UFOlogical content came from Fickman, at least some of it was the result of CIA input. In a highly unusual production arrangement Fickman claims he was closely assisted by an active employee of the CIA whose advice extended so far even as to designing the alien writing seen in the UFO during the film’s climactic scene. Fickman is unwilling to name this advisor, but claims he is an Air Force Colonel with a background in Technical Intelligence, that he had been “very active in Hollywood” and “had a lot of connections in the computer world and [experience in] satellite imagery.”77

Fickman said of his CIA advisor:

“All of the on-camera alien language in terms of their spaceship and everything – that was all designed by him in the sense [of what] the mathematics of communication would be, so you know… there would be a similar mathematical equation that the government probably has if they were to ever come across an alien race. So a lot of the things we ended up using were things he was bringing to me… and the next thing  you know, that’s what I had on screen.”78

The advisor also recommended that certain UFO-related content be removed from the script: “there were things we got rid of in the script that he was just trying to follow logic [on] from a protocol standpoint,” said Fickman, although he would not elaborate on the nature of the changes made.79

Fickman further claims that he was afforded a visit to NORAD’s sensitive Cheyenne Mountain facility in 2008, where – accompanied by his CIA advisor – his team spent twelve hours taking photographs and talking with on-duty military officers, including the heads of NORAD. “We wanted our Witch Mountain to resemble what NORAD and Cheyenne Mountain look like inside,” he said, adding: “We took a thousand photos and then by the time they released us into the wilderness maybe we had three hundred that had been approved for us to somewhat copy [for production design purposes].”80

The CIA, for its part, claims to have had no involvement in Race to Witch Mountain. In an email to the author, Paula Weiss, Media Spokeswoman at the CIA Office of Public Affairs, said: “to the best of our collective knowledge in the media relations office, we did not provide any technical or other support to this production.”81

Fickman was puzzled by the CIA’s denial. Questioned by the author on whether or not the CIA man could have been retired from the Agency and had been acting in a private capacity (as is the case with a number of ex-CIA operatives in Hollywood, including Robert Baer, Milton Beardon and Chase Brandon), the director replied: “there’s no way we would have had what we had, had he not been an active CIA employee…”82 Indeed, throughout the NORAD visit, Fickman claims he relied heavily on the influence wielded by his CIA man: “Nothing happened at NORAD without him flashing his card and making his calls.”83

Fickman believes it was due largely to the fact that his military and intelligence advisors were secured “through back door channels” that his production was granted such extraordinary access to the inner-workings of the national security apparatus, but he insists there was no hidden agenda behind the US government’s uncharacteristic generosity in this regard:

“All of a sudden I was in places that I don’t know I would have been had I gone through normal channels. I don’t think there was anything abnormal about what they were doing, I just think it was [that] phone calls were being made and doors were sort of opening.” 84

Conclusion

The US government has made concerted efforts over the years to manage through entertainment media popular perceptions of UFOs while attempting simultaneously to massage its own public image in relation to the phenomenon. If, though, as the government insists, UFOs are essentially non-existent, why the concern? In 1961, a NASA-commissioned report by the Brookings Institute, “Proposed Studies on the Implications of Peaceful Space Activities for Human Affairs,” warned that an official announcement confirming the existence of intelligent extraterrestrial beings could have disastrous consequences for human civilisation:

“Anthropological files contain many examples of societies sure of their place in the universe, which have disintegrated when they had to associate with previously unfamiliar societies espousing different ideas and different life ways; others that survived such an experience usually did so by paying the price of changes in values and attitudes and behavior.” 85

The report also advised that the government ask: “How might such information, under what circumstances, be presented to or withheld from the public for what ends?”86 However, although the Brookings report points to the concerns raised amongst powerful organisations about the potentially dangerous implications of UFOs and the need to control perceptions about the possibilities of alien life, it certainly does not constitute evidence of a UFO cover-up. A US government cover-up, though, is precisely what was alleged in 1999 in a ninety-page report detailing the results of an independent study for the Institute of Higher Studies for National Defence – a French military think-tank. The white paper, now commonly referred to as The COMETA Report, was compiled by a group of thirteen retired top-tier generals, admirals and government scientists (including General Bernard Norlain, the former head of the French Tactical Air Force, and Andre Lebeau, the former head of CNES [the French equivalent of NASA]) and documented the existence of unidentified flying objects and their implications for national security.87 Copies were received by President Jacques Chirac and Prime Minister Lionel Jospin. The report concluded that for the small percentage of UFO sightings which after exhaustive investigation and analysis could not be attributed to any known earthly technology or phenomena, the extraterrestrial hypothesis was valid. The report stated that some UFOs represent “completely unknown flying machines with exceptional performances that are guided by natural or artificial intelligence”88 and noted that, although the extraterrestrial hypothesis “has not been categorically proven… strong presumptions exist in its favour.”89 The report then goes on to consider in detail the likely consequences of open extraterrestrial contact for politics, science and religion.

In regard to the US government’s historical UFO research, the report states:

“It is clear that the Pentagon has had, and probably still has, the greatest interest in concealing, as best it can, all of this research, which may, over time, cause the United States to hold a position of great supremacy over terrestrial adversaries, while giving it a considerable response capacity against a possible threat coming from space. Within this context, it is impossible for them to divulge the sources of this research and the goals pursued, because that could immediately point any possible rivals down the most beneficial avenues. Cover-ups and disinformation (both active as well as passive) still remain, under this hypothesis, an absolute necessity. Thus it would appear natural in the minds of U.S. military leaders, secrecy must be maintained as long as possible.” 90

US government secrecy surrounding UFOs throughout much of the Cold War is now a matter of public record; ongoing secrecy on the matter, however – much less an official cover-up – is difficult if not impossible to prove, although numerous persons of influence have over the years indicated that a cover-up of sorts has been and may still be in effect. Notable among these individuals are: former CIA director Roscoe Hillenkoetter;91 former special assistant to deputy CIA director Richard Helms, Victor Marchetti;92 Senator Barry Goldwater;93 Gemini astronaut Col. Gordon Cooper;94billionaire financier Lawrence Rockefeller;95 Apollo astronaut Edgar Mitchell;96 former Deputy Prime Minister of Canada, Paul Hellyer;97 and former Governor of Arizona, Fife Symington.98John Podesta – head of President Obama’s White House Transition team and former Chief of Staff to President Clinton – has also strongly hinted at a UFO cover-up. Speaking at the National Press Club in Washington DC in 2002, Podesta stated:

“I think it’s time to open the books on questions that have remained in the dark on Government investigations of UFOs. It’s time to find out what the truth really is that’s out there. We ought to do it, really, because it’s right; we ought to do it because the American people quite frankly can handle the truth; and we ought to do it because it’s the law.” 99

Since the flying saucer phenomenon entered the popular consciousness in 1947, the US military has maintained that UFOs are neither signs of aliens from outer space nor any other phenomena that points to a hidden government agenda. As such, numerous attempts by filmmakers utilising these themes on screen to secure DoD or broader government assistance have been rebutted on the grounds that their productions are in opposition to the official position that UFOs do not exist; furthermore, and on the same grounds, the Pentagon has actively discouraged – even censored – certain UFO-themed media products. Still, on occasion, and especially since the 1980s, the Pentagon has shown itself willing to cooperate on certain productions: namely those which downplay the sinister government links to UFO mythology and play up the abilities and willingness of the military to defend civilisation against attack. At the same time, the government has been cautious about associating itself with any film that promotes UFO reality in the context of the extraterrestrial hypothesis, with two officially acknowledged exceptions – Spielberg’s E.T. The Extraterrestrial and the documentary UFOs: Past, Present and Future, and one unofficial exception, Race to Witch Mountain. Official involvement in E.T. can be accounted for on the grounds that it was both self-serving – in that the film depicted NASA scientists as being efficient and compassionate – and that it was not in contravention of its official policy on UFOs as the film’s plot did not plug directly into UFO mythology or depict a pre-existing, large-scale government cover-up. However, for reasons previously outlined, involvement on the part of various government agencies in the latter two productions is difficult to rationalise from an outside perspective.

None of this is to suggest that the government personnel who work on a day-to-day basis with Hollywood have any particular knowledge of or direct orders relating to UFO representations; indeed, it may be simply that the government’s Hollywood/Washington liaisons work to avoid associating the Pentagon with the UFO phenomenon for the very same reason that many people in other spheres of influence avoid the subject: namely, the aforementioned “UFO taboo.” Still, the pattern of the US government’s perception management relating to UFO-based entertainment is hitherto barely known and under-researched. Overall, this pattern indicates that for over six decades national security institutions, or at least powerful factions within them – in contrast to their publicly stated disinterest in UFOs – have closely observed and altered television and film depictions of the phenomenon, typically in line with broader government objectives in an attempt to prevent UFOs from gaining greater legitimacy or political currency.

91 “Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about the UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe the unknown flying objects are nonsense. To hide the facts, the Air Force has silenced its personnel.” Vice Admiral Roscoe Hillencoetter as quoted in: “Air Forge [sic] Order On ‘Saucers’ Cited; Pamphlet by the Inspector General Called Objects a ‘Serious Business’,” New York Times, 27 Feb., 1960, accessed on Jan., 31, 2011 at: http://select.nytimes.co /gst/abstract.html?res=F50A12F9345D1A728DDDA10A94DA405B808AF1 D3. See also Leslie Kean, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials Go on the Record, 143.

92 “I do know that the CIA and the US government have been concerned over the UFO phenomenon for many years and that their attempts, both past and recent, to discount the significance of the phenomenon and to explain away the apparent lack of official interest in it have all the earmarks of a classic intelligence cover-up.” Victor Marchetti, “How the CIA Views the UFO Phenomenon,” Second Look, May, 1979, 2-5.

93 In an official United States Senate letter dated 28 Mar., 1975, Goldwater responded to an enquiry regarding his publicly stated interest in UFOs: “About ten or twelve years ago I made an effort to find out what was in the building at Wright Patterson Air Force Base where the [UFO] information is stored that has been collected by the Air Force, and I was understandably denied this request. It is still classified above Top Secret.” In another Senate letter, dated 19 Oct., 1981, Goldwater further stated: “I have had one long string of denials from chief after chief, so I have given up… this thing [the UFO issue] has gotten so highly classified… it is just impossible to get anything on it.” See: Leslie Kean, UFOs: Generals, Pilots and Government Officials go on the Record, 243.

94 “For many years I have lived with a secret, in a secrecy imposed on all specialists and astronauts. I can now reveal that every day, in the USA, our radar instruments capture objects of form and composition unknown to us… I feel that we need to have a top-level, coordinated program to scientifically collect and analyze data from all over the Earth concerning any type of encounter, and to determine how best to interface with these visitors in a friendly fashion.” Gordon Cooper, Col. USAF (Ret.), letter to Ambassador Griffith, Mission of Grenada to the United Nations, New York, 09 Sept., 1978.See Gordon Cooper and Bruce Henderson, Leap of Faith: An Astronaut’s Journey into the Unknown (New York: Harpertorch, 2002), 219-225.

95 In a 1995 letter addressed to Bill Clinton, as part of a sustained dialogue with the White House on the issue of UFO disclosure, Rockefeller requested that the President “personally and specifically direct a review of current government information policy concerning Extraterrestrial Intelligence (ETI), including Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs).” Rockefeller wrote: “It is widely believed that various agencies of the federal government have substantial information concerning the existence or nonexistence of UFOs, and that it has been unnecessarily withheld from the public as classified. If the information were released, it would be received as evidence of a new spirit of partnership between government and its citizens.” Lawrence S., Rockefeller, “Lifting Secrecy on Information About Extraterrestrial Intelligence as part of the Current Classification Review, letter to President Clinton, 23 Aug., 1995.

96 “I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we’ve been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real… It’s been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it’s leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it… I’ve been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes – we have been visited.” Edgar Mitchell as quoted in: “Apollo 14 astronaut claims aliens HAVE made contact – but it has been covered up for 60 years,” The Daily Mail, 24 Jul., 2008, accessed on 30 Jan., 2011 at: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-1037471/Apollo- 14-astronaut-claims-aliens-HAVE-contact–covered-60-years.html

97 “The time has come to lift the veil of secrecy and let the truth emerge so that there can be a real and informed debate about one of the most important problems facing our planet today… but it is quite impossible to have that kind of informed debate about a problem that doesn’t officially exist.” Paul Hellyer speaking at a symposium on UFO disclosure, 25 Sept., 2005, accessed on Jan., 30, 2011 and viewable at: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=8964281348675417592#docid=- 8731502304852399080

98 “There are many high-ranking military, aviation and government officials who share my concerns [about UFOs]. While on active duty, they have either witnessed a UFO incident or have conducted an official investigation into UFO cases relevant to aviation safety and national security… We want the government to stop putting out stories that perpetuate the myth that all UFOs can be explained away in down-to-earth conventional terms. Investigations need to be re-opened, documents need to be unsealed and the idea of an open dialogue can no longer be shunned… When it comes to [UFO] events… that are still completely unsolved, we deserve more openness in government, especially our own.

Full Disclosure

Sunday, July 24th, 2011

The following information is based on research and interviews from various individuals as well as my own communications with non-indigenous beings. Please refer to prior postings at this site, as well as at http://cosmicparadigm.com/Athabantian/, for more details.

Based on the increased number of UFO sightings around our planet, there is an excitement about our brothers and sisters from the stars making themselves generally known in the physical. This is commonly known as “First Contact.” Associated with First Contact is the whole subject of “Disclosure.” This commonly means that the government of the United States finally admits that contact with our brothers and sisters has happened and that it is real despite repeated denials.

It is my opinion that such Disclosure is unlikely to happen at this time because it would open the way for FULL DISCLOSURE (see below), and few within the government or their affiliated corporations are ready for that. It is also my opinion that relatively few within the government, or the affiliated corporations, know the complete picture as described below.

It is my further opinion, substantiated by the opinions of others, that we will see Disclosure only after monetary systems fail and after governments are remade to operate in the best interests of all on this planet. In other words after a shift from this 3rd dimension paradigm to a 4th or 5th dimension paradigm. Although this could happen quite soon, 3rd dimension devolution dictates that open contact with our brothers and sisters is most likely some time away.

My definition of FULL DISCLOSURE is as follows:

1.     Admissions that sightings of UFOs cannot be dismissed as natural phenomenon, as swamp gas, or as weather balloons; admitting that some of these sighting are the result of contact with off-planet civilizations.

2.     Admissions that there have been crashes of off-planet craft. Plus admissions that agencies of the U.S. government, and affiliated corporations, have successfully undertaken reverse engineering of technologies acquired from such crashes.

3.     Admissions that this reverse engineering has resulted in flying disks and other craft with capabilities beyond air and space craft as revealed to the general public, and that these craft are responsible for the vast majority of UFO sightings.

4.     Admissions that agreements have been made with off-planet entities to actively engaged with agencies of the U.S. and other governments in various projects, and that some off-planet entities have been coerced into cooperating with these efforts.

5.     Admissions that one of these projects is assistance from off-planet entities to develop advanced spacecraft, and that these craft are capable of flight to other planets. Admission that the conventional military technology is second to the technologies possessed by off-planet beings and these secret projects.

6.     Admission of a U.S. base on the moon, and NASA’s true role.

7.     Admissions that experiments to develop hybrid beings — based on manipulating the genetics of humans and off-planets entities — have been carried out. Further admissions that the majority of “alien abductions” are in reality abductions of humans by other humans to participate in these experiments.

8.     Admission that there are off-planet entities who do not have our best interests at heart, and that they are behind the Illuminati.

9.     Admissions that there are advanced beings living under the surface of the Earth and within its core, and that these beings are benign.

10.  Recognition that the vast majority of off-planet beings are benign, that they function in a higher dimension, and that they wish to assist the transformation of this planet into a veritable paradise based on love — counter to the current fear-based society presided over by the U.S. and other governments. Further recognition that there are millions of off-planet beings currently among us.

I am grateful to be involved with messages such as this one, and trust they are of value to those of you reading them.

In truth, Love and Joy,

Mark Kimmel

Over 500 Indian workers sue US firm for human trafficking

Posted by Admin on February 22, 2011

http://in.news.yahoo.com/over-500-indian-workers-sue-us-firm-for-human-trafficking.html

PTI – Tue, Feb 22, 2011 6:35 PM IST

Houston: Lawyers for a group of Indian guest workers, trafficked to the US from India to work in ship yards after Hurricane Katrina in 2005, have sued an American company, Signal International, along with its co-conspirators and other entities for human trafficking and racketeering.

If class status is granted, the lawsuit could be the largest human trafficking case in US history, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has said in a statement.

Workers were allegedly lured here with dishonest assurances of becoming lawful permanent US residents, the statement said.

The ACLU joined a class action lawsuit brought on behalf of over 500 guest workers from India charging that the workers were trafficked into the US through the federal government’s H-2B guest worker programme with dishonest assurances of becoming lawful permanent US residents and subjected to squalid living conditions, fraudulent payment practises, and threats of serious harm upon their arrival.

The complaint alleges that recruiting agents hired by the marine industry company Signal International held the guest workers’ passports and visas, coerced them into paying extraordinary fees for recruitment, immigration processing and travel, and threatened the workers with serious legal and physical harm if they did not work under the Signal-restricted guest worker visa.

The complaint also alleges that once in the US, the men were required to live in Signal’s guarded, over crowded labour camps, subjected to psychological abuse and defrauded out of adequate payment for their work.

The ACLU charges that the federal government has fallen short of its responsibility to protect the rights of guest workers in this country.

According to the lawsuit, the treatment of the workers violates the Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act (TVPA) and the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organisations Act (RICO).

In addition to the federal court litigation, in partnership with the ACLU, the workers have testified before the UN Special Rapporteur on the Human Rights of Migrants, the UN Special Rapporteur on Contemporary forms of Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance, and senior staff at the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Signal, a marine and fabrication company with shipyards in Mississippi, Texas and Alabama, is a subcontractor for several major multinational companies.

UFO/ET Intel Product for Policymakers
By Ed Komarek
2/22/10
Copy and Distribute Freely
My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

I can see that my blog is evolving into a intelligence product for global UFO/ET policy makers as I receive more and more attention from policy makers and global UFO/ET underground groups. It’s true that I must use material gleaned from public sources. This makes the accuracy of the information not as good as information furnished to policy makers with special access, but there are benefits to be derived from a second honest transparent opinion.

At least this intelligence product is honest, and I think that counts for something. I believe products such as mine can be used by global policymakers as a kind of spin trap for official agencies and think tanks. Most agencies have their own individual agendas and may manipulate policymakers through selective and misleading releases of UFO/ET information. It’s not just us at the grass roots that have a credibility problem with official or unofficial briefings on extraterrestrial realities.

Now that I am in contact with enough underground groups around the globe, I think that I can work with these groups to coordinate a summary intelligence briefing for policy makers from public sources and from the expertise provided to me by these underground groups. As this concept evolves I think more groups will come on board and maybe some kind of open transparent organization or institution could be developed to assist global policy makers in their efforts to focus on UFO/ET related issues of major and minor importance.

I think the four major UFO/ET issues are: The overpopulation driven ELE (Extinction Level Event), UFO/ET disclosure and how to pay for it, International Security Issues related to trade with extraterrestrial races, and Consciousness issues. Some of the secondary issues are: Issues dealing with the secret space fleet’s atomic reactors and Solar Warden’s general effect on global security, Highly explosive issues dealing with Human Abductee Trafficking by covert groups, Regulating conflicts between Overt Regulatory Agencies and covert groups, Very Explosive Legal Issues dealing with questionable patents and patent infringement amongst corporations, Abuses related to maintaining a 70 year UFO/ET cover-up, The need for open transparent democratic global government to best address integration into UFO/ET realities, Issues related to extraterrestrial influence on global religions, Issues of corruption and criminal activities in covert operations, Avoiding global National Security Meltdowns, General societal restructuring to deal with UFO/ET issues, Conversion to cheap clean exotic energy sources, conversion to aerial anti-gravity transportation, issues dealing with lifetime extension, etc, etc.

As I begin to define these issues I see why extraterrestrial integration and disclosure has become a policy makers nightmare, and why second tier policy makers recently briefed, appear as deer in a tunnel, staring into the headlights of a oncoming train. There has got to be a great amount of hand wringing and denial in legitimate legislative bodies around the world and at the UN over how to confront all these highly explosive issues simultaneously being dumped into their laps by top tier policy makers. Only one brave public official is publicly speaking out on the subject and that is Councillor Hicks. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OmD_3Be41iA

As can be imagined all four of these major issues and the numerous secondary issues are intimately intertwined in a complex exopolitical web of relationships amongst ourselves and the various extraterrestrial races. Our short lifespans in relation to many ET races may be an obstacle to our collective evolution, but there are some benefits to having short lifespans, one being our ability to adapt quickly, once we become aware of both threats and opportunities posed by integration into ET reality. In fact it was the Conformers who commented to Source A that one of the most interesting things about our race was our almost unprecedented evolution the past couple hundred years.
http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2009/03/naval-officer-source.html

Clay and Shawn comment, “It is important to define “unprecedented evolution.” As we understand it from our source this would mean “unprecedented technological evolution” with regards to the human specie. Never have the Conformers seen such technological progress from a specie so quickly. Now we don’t know if this means just this planet or other planets with other species?”

Of the four major issues, I think AFhttp://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2010/03/british-mod-intel-ufoet-disclosures-by.html addressed the ELE issue quite well, as have Clay and Shawn Pickering in their posts to OM. In previous articles I have been talking about the security issues related to ET trade as well as disclosure issues. As for the forth major issue of higher consciousness, many years ago I addressed this issue which I may need to summarize in yet another article for policy makers. In my opinion this issue of vertical integration into higher consciousness is the most important issue relating to the future of the human race. Lateral integration into UFO/ET reality is not sufficient to bring about a bright future for humanity as is hinted at in the above comment by Clay and Shawn.

In the above article, AF also hit upon a very important secondary issue that seems to be playing itself out that relates to legal regulatory agencies colliding with covert operations. In this case it seems to be the UN’s IAEAhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Atomic_Energy_Agencycolliding with OSW (Office of Solar Warden) over atomic reactors in spacecraft. This has got to be just the tip of the iceberg as to what can happen in other areas like the issue of human trafficking of abductees by the NSA and other agencies in the American Government.

When UN and national agencies involved in human traffickinghttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_trafficking and human rights and international criminal investigative groups like Interpolhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interpol start investigating this human trafficking issue along with criminal and corruption investigations associated with a 70 year UFO/ET cover-up, the NSA, CIA and the Mossad are sure to fight back even more vigorously than with Space Fleet issue. Things could get very bloody and violent very quickly unless global policy makers take remedial action soon.

If folks think that the above is explosive enough just think about the violent infighting that can erupt over patent and patent infringement among corporations when all these exotic patents are up for question because their histories have been fabricated. In the absence of rule of law, transparency and overt regulation, arbitration and lawsuits, the only recourse for corporations involved in turf battles may be to use private armies against other corporations. Talk about a policy maker’s nightmare. This transition to the rule of law, in a up to now frontier arena, is not going to be easy.

I would like to get back to this issue of atomic reactors in spacecraft for a moment. I have been thinking a lot about this the past few days. The first thing I remembered was the Cash-Landrum Casehttp://www.nicap.org/cashlanrep2.htm that occurred in the early 1980s. Then I got to thinking that I had seen material somewhere the past 40 years about putting atomic reactors into spacecraft to power the powerful magnetic and electrogravitic fieldshttp://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/secret_projects/project080.htmneeded to propel the craft.

Then I thought about Bob Lazarhttp://www.thewhyfiles.net/boblazar.htm and his claims that the military was having trouble understanding the power-plants on alien spacecraft, even while they were gaining understanding of the magnetic and electrogravitic propulsion systems. Keep in mind that Bob was a Navy guy and there is considerable evidence that the Navy has been very involved in trying to understand how the exotic power plants on alien craft worked in order to replicate them. It is just not the Air Force involved in all this.

This sent me back through my old standby book of obscure facts on UFO/ET, the book UFO Crash Aztec, and I hit pay-dirt. This also explains why the Navy seems to have dual or operational control over the Secret Space Fleet code named Solar Warden. The Navy has plenty of experience in building, maintaining and operating small compact nuclear reactors for Navy ships and submarines. Keep in mind that this seems to be written in the late 1970’s with the Cash-Landrum case happening soon afterward.

I think folks will find this page 366 on Operation Y in the book very interesting indeed. “Now that the military had recovered some UFO “hardware”, the next step was to attempt to build something like this for themselves, as close as possible to that advanced technology associated with the originals. The philosophy behind the attempted duplication project was, “the first country on Earth to discover the secret behind that advanced technology upon which the principles of the flying saucer is based, would assuredly become untouchable as far as military power is concerned.” ”

“That is why the saucers were classified, “above top secret”, in fact the most highly classified subject matter in the United States Government. This secret is extremely guarded in a very jealous way. In fact the “Committee of 12″ will go to any extremes to keep it tightly under wraps! (See Appendix 3 )”

“The code name for this duplication program was “Project Y “, Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase number 1 was the initial analysis of the residue in government hands, leading to some kind of an understanding of the recovered saucers mode of operation. Phase number 2 was to eventually be the actual construction of a workable copy based on what was being discovered in Phase 1. Regretfully, we must say, after some 38 odd years of working under stringent security conditions, nothing has been accomplished toward completing Phase 1. The technologies seen still elude us.”

“In desperation, some of the scientists on the project decided to bypass Phase 1 if necessary and proceed into Phase 2. In our relatively primitive state of comparable technology, the scientists could not find out how the saucers operated or were powered, so they did what they considered at the time, the next best thing. The substituted a primitive type nuclear power plant for the original unknown power plant in the same basic design.”

Okay folks there you have it. Lets try to look at the Solar Warden issue in a larger historical context. In the 1920s and 1930s Germany was working on two parallel aerospace programs, a overt conventional one and a covert unconventional one.
http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/esp_ufoaleman.htm
http://projectcamelot.org/lang/en/joseph_farrell_interview_transcript_en.html
http://greyfalcon.us/restored/1936.htm These two parallel very competitive aeronautics-aerospace effort that began in Germany have continued to this day in the United States and Russia.

In the United States and allied countries, I believe Solar Wardenhttp://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2009/05/solar-warden-articles.html has been the result or end product of the unconventional line of aeronautics-aerospace research. In both parallel efforts Russia seems to have fallen far behind, leaving the U.S. and its allies the undisputed king of the hill. It would seem that the conventional space fleet has become obsolete and is being dismantled remaining as only an expensive public relations exercise to hide the covert unconventional space fleet with bases reported already on the Moon and Mars. (There is lots of disinformation right now being pumped into the UFO community about this Mars base or colony in order to ofuscate the issue just as with SERPO.) This is a really good example how one very serious issue is complexly interwoven into other major UFO/ET related issues that policymakers must try to sort out and understand.

I think there is great hope and promise that humanity will be able to quickly adapt to these extraordinary challenges. We seem to be at our best with our backs to the wall. When our individual and collective survival is at stake, we have shown time and time again the ability to quickly adapt to a crisis once it is obvious and upon us.

British MOD Intel UFO/ET Disclosures
By Ed Komarek

My blog: http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/

It”s becoming a challenge to keep track of all the underground groups emerging in support of UFO/ET disclosure. Folks that read my blog on a regular basis understand that I support a integrated approach to disclosure and ET integration, not a top down autocratic approach which I feel is dangerous to global security and to global democratic institutions.

Some of the many UFO/ET underground working groups around the world are becoming well known like the Military UFO Working Grouphttp://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2009/03/naval-officer-source.html in the U.S. which Clay and Shawn Pickering are associated with, and the Brazilian UFO Working Grouphttp://www.cohenufo.org/BrazilianUFODocumentsReleased.htm that is working closely with the military authorities in Brazil to implement disclosure.

I have been reporting on still other groupshttp://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2010/02/reality-of-et-integration-viable.html and in that vein I would like to report on a British MOD group that interfaces with an individual called (name deleted). This individual uses the screen name AF and has been posting to OMhttp://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi? for quite awhile, but has had connections to this group in British Intel years prior to his posting at OM. He became public on OM soon after the Source A disclosures began associated with the ad hoc Military UFO Working Group.

AF tells me he deleted many of his posts at OM when he and his source got on the hot seat as they began to confirm Source A disclosures. I have gone back through about 150 of AFs past posts not deleted, to gather information for this article. The OM maze of threads can be confusing so folks might just want to read the posts of people they are interested in. When folks post at OM there is a record of past posts under their screen name.

You can find AF’s posts here http://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=viewprofile&user=afirestone and Clay and Shawn’s past posts herehttp://lucianarchy.proboards.com/index.cgi?action=viewprofile&user=temporal People can also write personal messages to the individuals they are interested in once they sign up.

There is a wide range of information in these posts including possible UN IAEA investigations into the atomic powered secret space fleet called Solar Warden http://exopolitics.blogspot.com/2009/05/solar-warden-articles.html that may have already resulted in one murder. There is information on the Grey’s and their hybrids, some good ideas about moving disclosure forward around the globe, and a British scolding of the Americans for dragging their feet on disclosure and for not providing good political leadership.

Here is a portion of the information relating to Solar Warden, “Could be linked to this guy – http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/worldnews/article-1224377/British-nuclear-experts-17th-floor-UN-death-plunge-suicide.htmlAny confirmation AF? No confirmation on this because as you can imagine this is very explosive stuff.”

“Okay guys got some interesting news. In the back ground the battle between pro and anti disclosure has started to get very bloody. As you may know the UFO department of the UK MoD has been closed down (Dr Salla’s speculation seems to be correct http://www.examiner.com/x-2383-Honolulu-Exopolitics-Examiner~y2009m12d5-British-MOD-closes-UFO-desk–impact-on-extraterrestrial-disclosure ). Which has created a situation in the UK where by my contact (and others outside the UK) seems to be under attack by NSA and Mossad.””What is different about this is that their may be links to the deaths at the UN IAEA investigator’s who were looking into the claims that Soar Warden and the Aurora/ TR-3/Firefly were powered by nuclear energy. These are the same NSA and Mossad people that killed the Iranian scientisthttp://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/jan/12/iran-scientist-assassination-allegation-west AF” (Old folks like myself remember this old case that may indicate a experiment in atomic powered propulsion gone bad. http://www.nicap.org/cashlanrep2.htm Ed )

“This is what Gary told us what was ours and made it official.
http://www.ufocasebook.com/triangles.html This is what we have worked out out. This here is a official Mexican film of the Armada of nuclear powered anti gravity US Space craft.http://www.ufocasebook.com/yt44.html Here they are doing a standard re entry into earth’s atmosphere. The fact they did this in front a Mexican Military Plane could of been a Psyops operation preparing for a False Flag attack on Earth. ”

“This is why in my eyes Gary is a hero, he blew the lid wide open on a number of things for us researchers.””1. Most Triangles are ours. 2. This is the secret Black Budget projects that have cost trillions over the years. 3. These craft are surface to space military capable air craft.
4. They are anti gravity functioning in part. 5. They are powered by nuclear energy. 6. They were going to be used in a False Flag attack on Earth.””That’s why the USA want him so badly, he destroyed a lot of their work over night and the rest of the secret Intel world know it. AF”

“I have to say that it looks like the UK and ET have joined to put more pressure on the USA. I don’t know if I have mentioned but I have been told some time ago that there are some very high ministers in the UK government that know all about Disclosure. We are still waiting it seems for the same to happen in the US Government.”

AF has this to say, in response to the Military UFO Working Group perspective, in which he refers to a ELE (Extinction Level Event) caused by human overpopulation of the planet. AF also discusses Gray hybrids and MOD ideas on disclosure.

“You are very close to the mark on a few things except population reduction. We all talk about population reduction but not by any sort of human cull. Their are programs in place that focus more on the continuation of Government over that of keeping the whole population protected from cataclysmic or economical events that would reduce the population dramatically. We talk about Global governance not by force but by economic influence.”

“Hybrids will not take over the world but they will be necessary ambassadors between worlds. We will need beings that can live on Earth and on other planets, which we can’t do. Abductions are considered a crime but genes, genetics and reproductive products are considered legitimate forms of trade between ETs.”

(I have some serious concerns that I don’t see being addressed amongst these intelligence professionals, think tanks and policy makers in regards to activities on this planet by the Greys, Tall Whites and by the Anunnaki. In earth history contact and trade between unequal technological societies often leads to colonization and even enslavement of the lesser technological power.

Contact = Trade = Conquest = Colonization is what usually happens with few exceptions. Japan managed to fend of conquest and colonization because they severely regulated European contact and trade on their soil. In the case of the Greys they are establishing a foothold not only in our society and soil but also in our genes and that is a very serious concern that does not seem to be being addressed.)

AF continues, “Okay the Greys seem to have very different understanding to life than we do hence why the Hybrid information has been given out. It is for us as a human culture to get our heads around. *Greys seem to have the ability to move their spirit from one clone like body to another if one clone body has died. This is what I have been told, and why the have developed EBEs Engineered Biological Entity’s.* ETs have worked out that God exists and that there is some sort of Quantum Physics that can take you to where God is. The Greys and other like them knows what holds the universe together and what created the big bang.”

“When ETs came to us we threw the best and the brightest but we were far from understanding the implications of what we were doing.”*Which brings us back full circle which is Amnesty for the things our scientists have done with the Greys. *So what happened? Source A has said “Don’t Don’t Shoot the Messenger” and look what happened to him and my contact. ”

“Like all debates both side have very good points. eg We need Hybrids for future Ambassadors , Space pilots, Space Explorers etc. How we made these Hybrids were done through very questionable means. The people who did this are the PTB the NSA Black Budget US/UK alliance the same people who control the listening station at Pine Gap *We can’t escape what has been done but we can avoid dealing with it until the people that did these experiments are to old or dead to prosecute. ”

“A few years back my contact and I discussed all the above, which has been implemented. We worked out that any first open contact that happens must not have Greys or Reptiods present. Due to the fact that they have been directly involved in Grey Abductions working with the US and UK Black Budget.”

“Information I have been given from British Intel. Greys don’t answer to NSA they work together. In some cases our Triangle Space craft is used in abductions. Greys agenda is the collection of Genes DNA and reproductive products of humans through abductions to create hybrids. In return US UK Alliance get high tech equipment support and info for space craft to weapons.”

“Hybrids will be used for long term communication and contact between ETs and Humans. Can you verify Temp. AF” It is the NSA that sanction abductions with the help of the Greys. Air and Space Command just take the orders which is all funded by Black Opp. AF”

“Source A mentioned that amnesty was a major problem in the process of disclosure and at this current rate of disclosure Source A has very little to worry about. Due to the seriousness of the crimes people will revisit these issues of what has happened in the past.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yM0NGbxzBVI The CIA killed James Forrestal Secretary of Defense and many more people like him and we have to ask our selves how did this happen. Also did the US Navy support the killing of James Forrestal.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Forrestal Sounds like Source A has to ask some very serious questions from his Navy about amnesty. AF”

“Well I found out the key companies that will have problems with their patents. http://www.ufocasebook.com/2008c/corsointerview.html They are: Du Pont http://www.dupont.com/ Hughes http://www.hughes.com/Bell-lab http://www.bell-labs.com/ Dow http://www.dow.com/

“My Contact informed me that their is a working relationship between the Reptilians and the US UK Alliance. The most he has mentioned to me is that they are helping with engineering, science and physics. So my question to Source A is why are they helping? AF”

“This is from my contact. Most abductees experience some sort of telepathy during their kidnapping by Greys. The experience of telepathy can linger for a time after the abduction.http://www.ufocasebook.com/alienabductions.html Due to the work between the Greys and US and UK Alliance have developed a method called Remote Viewing. This is where a humans mind can view places outside their own body. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Remote_viewingThis was used during the cold war with various results.

The US and UK with the help of the Greys have developed Remote Viewing with different methods, drugs and technology. The Greys have far more Superior Remote Viewing and can see the future, which some abductees have been shown. The Alliance has developed a primitive form of Remote Viewing that can see the possible future.””The Alliance has developed this into a new weapon where by with Remote Viewing they can Kill a person or make them change their opinions or decisions.

In a Minor way we see some of this today where disabled people can control a mouse on a computer screen or a wheel chair.http://www.electric-wheelchair-on.net/main/brain-controlled-electric-wheelchair-and-mind-computer-mouse-pointer-part-3-the-conclusion/“”This has developed into the air force where they have developed a similar way to control the space craft much like the same way a disabled person can control a mouse on a computer screen. Imagine what a skilled Remote Viewer could do with such space craft as long as the humans in the space craft could handle the G-Force.http://www.ufocasebook.com/2008c/outbackskies.html These are just some of the secret strategic advantages that Alliance does not want to release. Temporal can you verify.”

AF gets into the dynamics of the political and exopolitical situation. “Due to a understanding between the factions they started working on a meeting at the UN, to test the waters. This is where Source A comes in. Currently ET has placed a outline of what it will take to for trade with ETs. Which is a World Government with the power to make nations do things, unlike the UN. AF”

“My greatest concern is that Source A has mentioned that if we can get our house in order and prevent these ELEs then we will be able to have greater openness with ETs. If you also put in the mix that we can make great changes during the Economic Crisis eg Green jobs, More Green Energy infrastructure, Green Cars, up grade public transport, the development of more forests, developing greener farming and food distribution.”

“I still see little movement from world Governments to implement or fix the above but governments can seem to find a lot money for Wall Street when they need it. So the question is can we get our heads around the ELEs before it’s to late to fix the problem, because their won’t be a second chance. AF”

“Look I couldn’t agree more my contact told me that the Economic Crisis was created for the centralization of economic power. This may work for Disclosure and terms of treaty agreements with ET, but that is still being worked out now. We are a long way off from what Source A and Temp have mentioned about Earth getting it’s own house in order for 1st contact. The battle seems to be in the detail. AF”

“Also depends on your perspective, you have to keep in mind my contact is British Intel. So we have mostly an outside perspective to what the USA is doing. Which we often do not agree with each other or the way the US does Disclosure. As far as I can tell Temp and Source A have had a few heated debates, but me and my contact have arguments. Which I love and I’m sure my contact does to, gets the blood pumping.”

“Here is a link the quote is at the bottomhttp://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2010/02/12/60minutes/main6202302.shtmlLooks like PTB are talking more openly about the subject.”

“I also think that ET has their own working group for disclosure and are as political as we are. I consider the Stephenville UFO as a flyby the Bush ranch no fly zone, which made this a very political statement.
http://www.stephenvillelights.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1&Itemid=1 What has just come in is this http://www.exmouthherald.co.uk/exmouthherald/news/story.aspx?brand=EXJOnline&category=news&tBrand=devon24&tCategory=newsexh&itemid=DEED12%20Feb%202010%2009%3A39%3A47%3A700

“In relation to the above article considering that the UK just closed the department that investigated UFOs which did not consider UFOs a security breach were gravely mistaken. UN protocols state that 1st contact and ET contact must be confined in restricted areas to prevent possible contamination. All we now need is ships to fly over a number of Nation States to get the politicians talking to each other openly about UFOs and ETs. ”

“With the current situation, like all of you, when I see governments Disclose files and credible organizations lead discussions like the Vatican. I start to have hope that we are moving in the right direction. The current policy on my end which has yet to be implemented is that we need in the near future politicians openly talking (Through the media) to each other from different nations states about the UFOs. Now I only see that happening when something like the Stephenville UFOs happens over lots of nations. eg 1 giant white UFO much like the one repeatedly seen over Stephenville going across a number of nations. It would be a good lead up to Ships over cities. AF”

“Yeah, what I’m seeing is the cycle of money. Military Industrial Complex (MIC) gets Government grants in the trillions, then lobby Senators with the same cash. Then the senators would allow future grants to MIC. Now would you give that up if you were benefiting from it. The PTB will come up with endless reasons why disclosure can’t happen.””I see very little difference when I hear other governments come up with reasons as to why they can’t do certain things. The Vatican is the only one that has taken this subject seriously in trying to prepare their faithful for this realization. Which also reflected Source A’s comments on the first meetings about ETs at the UN. ”

AF replys to the suicides of children after seeing the movie Avatar. “UK MoD did a study on when will society be ready for first contact. It turns out that we were ready back in the 70’s. Due to the amount our human culture have seen on the TV and at the movies on aliens and UFOs. What was also found was that their will be a “small” percentage of people who will commit suicide. These were people with a predisposition with mental health issues, religious fanatics, skeptics and scientists.””Of course the PTB that boringly continue to stop disclosure because of such concerns is ridiculous, and these facts should be aggressively shoved back into the faces of the PTB.”

AF proceeds to scold the Americians, “We have a time limit to unambiguous first contact and time and time again US is the stumbling block. Currently what Im seeing is that Source A does not have the debating skills to push for disclosure on the PTB. “The hard fact is that this is all compartmentalized and the over all system is dysfunctional due to lack of leadership on the issue of ET contact with Nasa, Black Budget and UN meetings. Which should all lead to the White House and congress but doesn’t. If MJ12 exists, the chair of that committee seems to lack leadership or the power to bring about disclosure. We seem to be stuck with a leadership that wants to keep a dangerous status quo. All roads lead to Rome, in this case all roads lead to Washington DC.”

“I think you Temp put to much weight on the old money PTB in the UK to start and direct disclosure. We did it anyway which I have had direct influence over. To also say that our level of working group’s has little or no influence over disclosure is also incorrect. I for one have seen more impact on our work on the middle to upper echelons of the PTB that you have.”

“In 2008 and 2009 the UK had a office at the MoD that looked into UFO’s and UK/Europe had more disclosure than the US ever has. Prince Charles mentioned that we have little time before we create our own ELE with climate change. Which is about the best green light for disclosure you will get from the PTB in the UK. I consider most if not all excuses from the US a red hearing, to confuse the debate and keep the focus away from the US power structure doing their job for disclosure.”

“I feel that Source A has not done a good job in defending the disclosure agenda, only because he has not the years of experience and knowledge that we have. This is why my contacts are being attacked again. “The public doesn’t give two hoots about the phenomena. Remember what the PTB said to our source”. When Source A hears this BS does he turn around and say their wrong. I seriously doubt it and this is where I think Source A is not pushing it hard enough.”

“All else you said is fair enough Temp but the NSA and Mossad are from your side and the people who killed the Iranian scientist (What are they trying to do start a war) are the same people that attacks the UN members and pro disclosure groups in the UK. It is the same old red necks in the US government that were supposed to be pushed asides by Obama and his aids, which does not seem to have happened. Where by we see NASA being told to shut up. I understand that your source are not the cause of this problem but this current situation has to be voiced.”

“You are correct Temp but your working group continues to fail time and time again and the UK disclosure working groups pay’s for it. In the UK we don’t need Nasa to tell us that ETs are visiting us, we need the US to get their Sh*t together to make Nasa tell the truth. You simply can’t have hundreds of UFO sighting over Texas and Mexico and tell the pubic nothing is happening.”

“Your PTB in US are bunch of F*** wits in comparison to the UK or Chinese PTB. You guys are the problem and when NSA start attacking my friends and people at the UN I will give you heaps of Sh**. Very good writing. It’s a good reminder that we need the PTB to unite on disclsoure and for the future of humanity.”

“Whitley Strieber is a good case in example of what happens when you go from being abducted to understanding the Greys better than anyone else. We are at a pivotal time where the PTB are starting to understand that the ball is in there court when it comes down to disclosure. They have 2 choices.”

“1/ Not prepare the population of Earth for 1st contact and force the ETs to put ships over cities. 2/ Prepare the population by having our top leaders of Earth openly discussing contact with the global population.” “With 1 this could have a massive impact on the global stock exchange/economy and create a period of uncertainty. With 2 we will have a steady flow of change and discussion which will maintain the PTB structure with less impact on the global population. Now is Source A and Steven Greer passing on this information on to the PTB? AF”

“But the debate within the PTB that are anti-disclosure is “Will we survive this change in the long term” the answer is of course yes, but currently Im not seeing any groups try to calm the nerves of this powerful group. The PTB that are anti-disclosure are rightfully concerned about their future and have to understand that they will need help, compensation and new position’s for these massive changes. Which in part was going to be the jobs of the Obamas military advisors eg General James Jones, USMC (Ret) AF”

“Ozzy a karma hit for you. I emailed the Vatican on this subject (With no reply) stating that we really need to move on with someone like Obama or Ban Ki-moon Secretary-General of the United Nations. Stating that ET contact has been made. Which should be lead by the world’s religious leaders to calm the global population.”

“The PTB are dead wrong when they say no one gives a Sh** about this phenomena, the problem is the person who will tell the world for the first time, that is the current point in contention. We are even getting the media to take this subject a little more seriously, which is a far cry from what it was like 3 years ago.”

“This debate has gone far beyond UN meetings and first contact because when we do start openly talking to ET. The first question will be “how do we avoid this up and coming EXTINCTION LEVEL EVENT (ELE)”. Which is why the current pro-disclosure faction of the PTB and the Military are starting to take notice. As Jar Jar Binks once wisely said “We are in deep do do” if we don’t sort this out asap. AF”

“Looks like the PTB are adding pressure on the US. 1st Brazil and now this. Germany asking the US to join the new world order and other nations talking of a world currency. The Vatican -Embracing the Probability of Extraterrestrial Life?”

“This week the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences is holding its first major conference on astrobiology, convened on private Vatican grounds in the elegant Casina Pio IV, formerly the pope’s villa. The gathering of prominent scientists and religious leaders from around the world suggests that some of the most tradition-bound faiths are seriously contemplating the possibility that life exists in many forms beyond Earth.”

“Can someone do a FOIA for this? A NASA photographic expert said that there was a Building 8 at Johnson Space Center where they regularly airbrushed out images of UFOs from the high-resolution satellite imaging. I logged on to NASA and was able to access this department. They had huge, high-resolution images stored in their picture files. They had filtered and unfiltered, or processed and unprocessed, files.”

“If this is the case then a media release will need to be prepared for the worlds media so that speculation will not get out of hand. Due to the sensitive nature of the information on international corporations. A select number of TOP journalists will need to have detailed information in regards to this subject. Given by the Obama administration.”

“These select number of TOP journalists will then have to leak only the information of a Obama speech regarding the disclosure of ETs and that most, but not all, of the ET visitors are friendly. The reason for this is to stop panic and also change the tone of the media out lets from ridicule to proper investigative journalism.

“Also keep in mind current information states that if all coral reefs are destroyed the oceans will no longer be able to absorb CO2. I am told it can not be reversed once this has happened. We are also currently in the greatest Extinction Level Event since that last great extinction of the dinosaurs. Which as Im sure you have all heard that there are now more animals becoming extinct than in any other time in human history.”

“From the little that my contact gave me the Builderburg Group meeting in 2008 was crunch time. It was either let the economic crash happen before or after Bush’s last term in office. Info wars had a spy in the Builderburg Group meeting in 2005 which he said in fine detail of a planned financial crash that would help bring in the next stage of the NWO. Sorry no link but I’m sure you will be able to find it.”

“I personally don’t see the NWO as a bad thing as I feel any thing has to better than the current system. Which to me looks more like Global Feudalism between Nation States and their corporations. All we can do is wait and see how this G20 will develop. Ok guys need a heads up and people to do some research.”

“My contact informed me that the Builderburg Group meeting in 2008 had discussed hurting the PTB that are stopping the NWO. The implementation of which was the recent economic crash that was put in plan in 2005 that was intended to hurt the oil, car industries and Bush & Co.”

“From what I can tell the Stephenville UFO’s that bypass the Bush ranch was a shot over the bow from ET to say they were very upset with the current situation. The recent economic crash has made the IMF more powerful and the French President had started to talk of a world currency.”

“We currently have a new development of a G20 which to me is starting to look like the Upper House and the UN is starting to look like the Lower House, this reflects the westminster system. For the Americans the G20 is the Senate and the UN is the House of Representatives. We are one step away from having the first President of Earth but the G20 is currently looking more like a collection of Heads of Nation States that does not have a leader of the Federation of Nation States.”

“A commentator said it was like having a Premieres Meeting in Australia without the Prime Minister of Australia to run the country. On a different note I have been sending information to a number of UN representatives that the US ET contact would have to be the worst kept secret and needs to be openly discussed in the General Assembly. Russia has openly attacked the US on the weaponization of Space which the US has replied “tough”.”
