(Datelined December 28, 2017 & Updated January 3, 2018 & Feb. 24, 2018) —
This image and a related video — both alleged to be a USAF fighterjet’s imagery of a bizarre amazingly high-speed “aerial object” that the plane was sent to track — was released on December 16, 2017, by the Defense Department’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program, courtesy of U.S. Department of Defense.
WHAT WAS THIS THING?
WAS IT AN “ALIEN CRAFT” — A “UFO” — PERHAPS FROM ANOTHER TIME, SPACE, DIMENSION, OR EVEN FROM HERE ON (OR IN) THIS PLANET? A HUMAN-CONTROLLED MILITARY DEVICE UTILIZING SOPHISTICATED ALIEN-AND/OR-HUMAN-GENERATED TECHNOLOGIES? OR WAS IT A C.G.I.-BASED “FAKE VIDEO”?
WHOSE ANSWERS SHOULD YOU TRUST TO BE THE TRUTH?
TO WHAT DEGREE IS THE “OFFICIAL” STORY ABOUT THIS IMAGERY, AND THE ASSOCIATED “OFFICIAL” REVELATIONS SURROUNDING IT — AND THE PREDICTED 2018 RELEASE OF NUMEROUS ADDITIONAL “OFFICIAL” VIDEOS AND REPORTS BY “OFFICIAL” U.S. AGENCIES AS WELL AS BY FOREIGN GOVERNMENTS — TO BE TRUSTED?
SHOULD THOSE “OFFICIAL” REVELATIONS BE VIEWED AS BEING THE COMPLETE AND HONEST TRUTH — OR SHOULD THEY VIEWED AS BEING, PERHAPS TO A SIGNIFICANT DEGREE, THE PRODUCTS OF A “HIDDEN AGENDA”?
JANUARY 3, 2018 UPDATE: DEVELOPMENTS ARE NOW ALREADY BEGINNING TO ACCELERATE. THE NAVY IS BACKING-UP THE NIMITZ-STORY WITH ADDITIONAL DETAILS THAT, AT LEAST ON THE SURFACE, SEEM CREDIBLE. AND ADDITIONAL INFORMATION — OR CLAIMS — AND HYPOTHESES ARE ALSO BEING RELEASED BY OTHER SOURCES. FOR A TOUCH OF WHAT’S DEVELOPING AT THE MOMENT, I FOUND THE FOLLOWING YOUTUBE-VIDEOS: THE FIRST IS SKETCHY, THE SECOND ADDS SOME INTERESTING VIEWPOINTS. TOGETHER — IN ADDITION TO MY COMMENTARY — MAYBE THEY CAN SERVE AS A “FAST & DIRTY START” TO WHAT’S HAPPENING:
IN THE MEANTIME, THE THRUST OF MY ANALYSIS STILL APPLIES:
TO WHAT DEGREE IS THE “OFFICIAL” IMAGERY, AND THE “OFFICIAL” STORY ABOUT IT, A REFLECTION OF REALITY — OR A COVER?
AND, IF WE TAKE THOSE POSSIBILITIES INTO ACCOUNT, WHAT ARE WE ALSO TO CONCLUDE ABOUT THE NUMEROUS ALLEGED ASSOCIATED STUDIES AND REPORTS WITHIN THE DoD AND ITS CONTRACTORS, ABOUT THIS ALLEGED DECEMBER 2004 INCIDENT AND RELATED SUCH INCIDENTS — INCLUDING THE CLAIM THAT THIS PARTICULAR 2004 UFO-CHASE WAS PART OF A 2-WEEK-LONG SERIES OF ATMOSPHERIC AND SUBOCEANIC UFO-INCIDENTS EXPERIENCED BY THE USS NIMITZ?
AND: AFTER DECADES OF THE U.S. MILITARY’S PROFESSING TO HAVE LITTLE INTEREST IN THE UFO SUBJECT, WHY WERE THE IMAGERY AND THE RECENT “OFFICIAL” REVELATIONS — WHICH SEEM TO BE IN DIRECT CONTRADICTION OF THAT VIEW — RELEASED AT THIS TIME — OR RELEASED AT ALL?
WAS THIS THE OPENING SALVO IN “DISCLOSURE”?
OR WAS IT SOMETHING ELSE?
I’VE EXTENSIVELY FOLLOWED THE “UFO” ISSUE OVER MANY YEARS, AND HAVE CONCLUDED THAT THERE ARE SEVERAL RELATED “REALITIES” AT WORK:
— ONE POSITIVE “REALITY” IS THAT THERE SEEMS TO BE A GROWING DEMAND, ON THE PART OF THE PUBLIC, FOR HONEST, INTELLIGENT, OBJECTIVE INVESTIGATION INTO THE UFO/ALIEN PHENOMENA AS A WHOLE.
— ADDITIONALLY, ONE “REALITY” IS THE SKEPTICISM — WHETHER HONEST AND ETHICAL OR DISHONEST AND UNETHICAL — THAT IS OFTEN APPLIED TO THIS FIELD.
— ANOTHER OF THOSE “REALITIES” IS THE OBFUSCATION, MIS-INFORMATION, DIS-INFORMATION, THAT SEEMS TO OFTEN BE APPLIED BY VARIOUS “OFFICIAL” SOURCES AND MUCH OF THE MAJOR MEDIA — ESPECIALLY IN THE UNITED STATES — REGARDING “UFOLOGY” AND “EXTRATERRESTRIAL ALIENS” .
— ANOTHER “REALITY” IS THAT OF VARIOUS SUPPOSED “EXPERTS” — WHO ARE TYPICALLY CALLED UPON BY THE MASS MEDIA TO “EXPLAIN” A UFO-EVENT — APPLYING ILLOGICAL AND/OR INVALID ANALYSES SO AS TO (a) DENIGRATE THE PHENOMENON OR (b) DENIGRATE ANY OPEN-MINDED APPROACH TO INTELLIGENTLY AND OBJECTIVELY ANALYZING THE PHENOMENON.
— AND ANOTHER POSSIBLE “REALITY IS THAT THE “UFOs” and “ALIENS” ARE “ALREADY HERE” — AND IN FACT MAY HAVE BEEN COMING HERE (AND/OR BEEN BASED HERE) FOR HUNDREDS, MAYBE THOUSANDS, MAYBE MILLIONS, OF YEARS — AND THAT THE EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF THAT POSSIBILITY NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED WITH OBJECTIVITY, COMPETENCE, SERIOUSNESS, AND WISDOM, BECAUSE THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF THAT “REALITY” MAY BE ENORMOUS.
— AND YES, THERE’S ALSO THIS ADDITIONAL POTENTIAL “REALITY”:
WHETHER OR NOT THE CURRENT DoD UFO-RELATED REVELATIONS ARE TRUE BUT IF THEY’RE GENERALLY ACCEPTED AS BEING TRUE — AND UNLESS, SOMEHOW, “THE GENIE COULD BE PUT BACK INTO THE BOTTLE” — THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF THE RELEASE WILL LIKELY BE GLOBAL AND ENORMOUS, PROMPTING PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD — AND GOVERNMENTS AROUND THE WORLD — TO RE-EVALUATE THEIR OWN STANCES ABOUT HOW TO DEAL WITH THE SUBJECT OF “UFOs” AND “ALIEN VISITATION” AS IT RELATES TO THEIR OWN PLANS, INTERESTS, AND LIVES.
I.E., WORLDWIDE, ARE WE ABOUT TO WITNESS ACTIONS DESIGNED TO “NEUTRALIZE”, “CONTAIN”, OR “MODERATE”, THESE EVENTS?
OR ARE THE POLITICAL, ECONOMIC, MILITARY, SOCIETAL, RELIGIOUS, “FLOODGATES” ABOUT TO BE FLUNG WIDE-OPEN?
HAVING SAID THAT, I MUST POINT OUT THAT THIS COMMENTARY, WHICH YOU ARE NOW READING, IS NOT INTENDED TO BE AN OVERALL EXPLORATION OF THE UFO-FIELD — ALTHOUGH ELEMENTS OF THAT EXPLORATION WILL BE EVIDENT AS YOU READ ON — BUT RATHER THAT THIS COMMENTARY IS PRIMARILY INTENDED TO DELVE INTO QUESTIONS ABOUT THE POSSIBLE REALITY — AND POSSIBLE IMPACT — OF THE GROUNDBREAKING RECENT DoD REVELATIONS REGARDING ITS ALLEGED UFO-RESEARCH PROJECT.
I.E., WHAT’S BEHIND THE ALLEGED “REALITY” OF THAT PROJECT AND THE ASSOCIATED DoD REVELATIONS? AND WHY THESE DoD REVELATIONS?
AND WHY NOW?
QUESTIONS, QUESTIONS, AND YET MORE QUESTIONS!
NOTE: In addition to this commentary, I suggest that interested readers may find it also worthwhile to access the following videos:
— A video by UFO investigator Grant Cameron (with whom I have no affiliation), for some revealing news-updates, at this URL:
— A video by “2nd Earth“ (Felipe Osorio) (with whom I have no affiliation) which presents Osorio’s analysis of how the media has been responding to the recent DoD revelations: My impression is that his presentation is eminently worth considering. The URL:
— Two Youtube videos by “Post Disclosure World” (with which I have no affiliation), in which I think that the presenter poses several potentially worthwhile insights about the possible impact of these UFO-revelations. See:
(And, same as I already noted in the above “January 3, 2018 Update”:
SO, READY TO PROCEED?
DOWN THE RABBIT-HOLE WE GO:
COULD IT BE THAT THE DoD RELEASE OF ITS VIDEO AND ITS “OFFICIAL” REVELATIONS — WHETHER TRUE OR UNTRUE — ARE MEANT TO CONDITION US TO ACCEPT A “NEW WORLDVIEW”?
IF SO, WHAT MIGHT THAT “NEW WORLDVIEW” BE?
MIGHT THE “NEW WORLDVIEW” THAT SPRINGS FROM THESE DoD REVELATIONS INCLUDE A PROFOUND ALLEGED TRUTH — THAT “ALIEN INTELLIGENCES” ARE NOT ONLY “OUT THERE” BUT ALSO “ALREADY HERE”?
SUGGESTION: If you’re interested in diving headlong into that particular possibility. some worthwhile respiurces to explore might include various web-postings & books & articles & videos — look for them — by persons such as STANTON FRIEDMAN, JIM MARRS, NICKE POPE (who for years headed the British Government’s official UFO-research project), GRANT CAMERON, RICHARD DOLAN, CLIFFORD STONE, DR. BRUCE MACCABEE, DR. STEVEN GREER, DR. DAVID SAUNDERS, PETER ROBBINS, DR. J. ALLEN HYNEK, BUDD HOPKINS, DR. KARLA TURNER, and the first chief of the USAF’s “PROJECT BLUEBOOK“, USAF Captain EDWARD RUPPELT.
And that’s just to start. A more extensive list of UFO-topic authors is at this URL:
Also, consider that a concerning issue — and maybe it’s an extremely high-priority point for the DoD — which may figure into this current DoD “Disclosure” enigma, is the alleged capability — as reported by various investigators — of various UFOs to exert some sort of control over the U.S.’ arsenal of nuclear-weaponized ICBMs.
For information about that prospect, you may want to consider the findings of investigator/author ROBERT HASTINGS:
Hastings’ website: http://www.ufohastings.com. His book: “UFOS and NUKES – Extraordinary Encounters at Nuclear Weapons Sites“. His online documentary: “UFOS AND NUKES – The Secret Link Revealed“, viewable at vimeo.com/ondemand/ufosandnukes (for a fee).
NOTE: If you happen to have the urge to dig deeper down in the rabbit-hole — into UFO-related information which may, in your view, be the product of either a paranoic outlook or a frighteningly deadly reality — you may want to follow the search-link below — BUT BE WARNED: The information there — and I take no position on its alleged veracity — is about why certain key UFO-researchers (such as Dr. Karla Turner and others) are “no longer with us”, and THE INFORMATION MAY BE DISTURBING:
Now think about this: consider the potentially extremely serious implications of the above hypotheses, claims, and revelations. Whether or not they are valid — but especially if they have any validity — you may want to ask yourself why — against that backdrop — this current DoD “Disclosure” is happening.
BUT GETTING BACK TO OUR DISCUSSION OF A POSSIBLE “NEW WORLDVIEW”:
IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE POSSIBILITIES, MIGHT THIS “NEW WORLDVIEW” BE INTENDED TO PREPARE US TO ACCEPT A REALITY — OR TO “SWALLOW” A FICTION — THAT SAYS THAT THESE “CRAFT” ARE FROM RIGHT HERE ON PLANET EARTH?
IF SO, ARE WE TO NOW WONDER IF THESE CRAFT ARE FROM OUR ENEMIES — OR FROM OUR OWN ALLIES — OR EVEN FROM OUR OWN DEFENSE-AGENCIES? AND IF SO, HOW ARE WE TO PLACE THAT KNOWLEDGE INTO OUR “NEW WORLDVIEW”?
BUT, WHATEVER THE ORIGIN OF THESE ALLEGED MYSTERIOUS CRAFT MAY BE, WHAT IF THE OVERARCHING GOAL OF THE DoD, IN THIS UFO-RELATED CONTEXT, IS TO PROTECT US FROM HARM? AND THAT ANY HISTORICAL OR PRESENT-DAY POLICIES OF SECRECY — AND THESE LATEST DoD-REVELATIONS — ARE ALL INTENDED TO ENSURE OUR SAFETY IN A DANGEROUS WORLD?
IN AN IDEAL WORLD, WOULDN’T THAT BE AS IT SHOULD BE?
BUT WHAT IF THE CURRENT STORY HAS A SOMEWHAT DARKER PURPOSE?
WHAT IF THE “NEW WORLDVIEW” THAT WE’RE SUPPOSED TO ADOPT IS BASED ON A FICTION — A FICTION THAT SAYS THAT THE “ALIENS” ARE NOT ONLY COMING BUT ALSO THAT THEY ARE EVIL, SO THAT WE WILL BE ALL-TOO-EAGER TO GIVE UP EVEN MORE OF OUR RIGHTS, IN ORDER TO EMPOWER OUR AUTHORITIES TO DEAL WITH THAT ALLEGED THREAT?
OR MIGHT THE INTENTION BE TO PREPARE US FOR SOMETHING ELSE — SUCH AS AN EVENT THAT MIGHT BE USED TO EXTRACT FROM US EVEN MORE OF OUR RIGHTS — SUCH AS A “FALSE FLAG EVENT” THAT WOULD FALSELY BE BLAMED ON THE “ALIENS”?
SO NOW, AS THE “INFORMATION DAM” SUDDENLY SEEMS (MAYBE) TO BE BREAKING, WHAT MIGHT BE THE NEXT “ALIEN-RELATED” BLOCKBUSTER TO HIT? AND SHOULD WE BE ECSTATIC — OR FEARFUL — ABOUT WHAT MIGHT COME NEXT?
WILL IT BE SOMETHING LIKE THIS …
OR THIS …
… OR MIGHT IT BE A POSSIBLY MORE MODERN, MORE DEVASTATING, VERSION OF THE 1942 “BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES”? IN THAT YEAR, LOS ANGELES WENT ON HIGH-ALERT, SEARCHLIGHTS BLAZING SKYWARD, AS ANTI-AIRCRAFT GUNS TRIED TO SHOOT-DOWN WHAT WERE THOUGHT TO BE AN INVASION OF “FLYING SAUCERS”.
OR, IF WE TAKE IT A STEP DEEPER INTO THE DARKER REALM OF POSSIBILITIES, MIGHT WHATEVER MOTIVATIONS THAT ARE INVOLVED IN THESE “UFO-RELATED REVELATIONS” — WHETHER THOSE REVELATIONS ARE TRUE OR FALSE — LEAD TO SOMETHING LIKE THIS:
A NEW “ONE WORLD ORDER”, BASED ON THE ACTUALITY — OR ON THE FICTION — OF A THREATENED “ALIEN INVASION”?
PRESIDENT REAGAN TALKED ABOUT IT: See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNfGZLAFeqA .
CONTROVERSIAL UFO-RESEARCHER BILL COOPER OUTLINED WHAT HE CLAIMED IS EVIDENCE FOR IT: See https://youtu.be/AqP54dwF-9Y .
AND EVEN SOME CURRENT OBSERVERS ARE ALSO TALKING ABOUT IT. SO MAKE OF IT WHAT YOU WILL.
CLEARLY THIS FIELD IS SWIRLING WITH QUESTIONS — AND CONSEQUENCES:
SO, NOW TO THE DETAILS:
WHO is behind this alleged exposure, and WHY? IS this alleged information VALID?
WHY and for what purpose or purposes is this alleged exposure happening NOW?
And, considering that these revelations would imply a HUGE THREAT to DECADES OF ALLEGEDLY ISSUING MISINFORMATION and OF SECRETS ALLEGEDLY BEING KEPT — unless these factors can be satisfactorily “explained away” — WHY is this alleged exposure happening AT ALL?
And here’s a SUBSIDIARY set of questions:
Recently, retired Cmdr. David Fravor, the U.S. Navy pilot, who allegedly flew a DoD-ordered mission to chase a UFO, was interviewed on FOX TV by Tucker Carlson. And Luis Elizondo, who allegedly had been heading an allegedly multimillion-dollar years-long DoD UFO investigation, was also interviewed elsewhere in the major media.
In those appearances, Fravor offered the viewpoint that the chased-UFO’s technology is probably “not from this world”, and Elizondo stated that the videotaped mysterious “craft” appeared to utilize technology that was “exotic” — but Elizondo stayed clear of any suggestion that that extraterrestrial “aliens” might be involved.
Why Elizondo’s reluctance to even mention the term “UFO” — let alone “alien” –, and why the discrepancy between his statement and Fravor’s?
Am I the ONLY person who finds those “disconnects” curious?
Also, am I the ONLY person who finds it the least bit problematical as to how the major (U.S.) media, certainly not all but by-and-large, seems to be (b) vastly ignorant of the facts involved in the UFO phenomena but seems also to be (b) uncritically “swallowing whole” this new “official line” about the UFO phenomena?
2. Is the DoD-released video LEGIT, or is it a FAKE?
The content of the “official” video, IMO, bears almost no resemblance to what the alleged pilot has described in the Tucker Carlson interview that I saw (or in the other media reports that I’ve seen). Maybe there’s independent verification somewhere, verifying that the video is 100% genuine — but if so, I haven’t seen it. And, these days, digital graphics technologies are so sophisticated that almost any fictional graphics can be made to look real.
The video LOOKS legitimate and maybe it IS legitimate. But might it, or any part of it, be a FAKE?
(JANUARY 3, 2018 UPDATE: Reportedly, additional DoD “UFO-chase” videos are said to be soon to be released. Same questions.)
3. What should we conclude about Fravor and Elizondo:
Are Fravor and Elizondo being fully accurate in their stories? And even if the story that they are presenting to the media is the truth as they see it, is it “the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”, about these UFO-related situations and events?
My impression, based on what I’ve seen in their interviews, is that they appear to be giving an honest impression of their knowledge and experiences.
But are they? Is it possible that they are withholding, misdirecting, or “dissembling” in their stories?
I would say, that in part, an answer to those questions has to do with whether or not, or to what degree, the interviewer — such as in the major media — is asking them the right questions. And my impression is that only a scarce minority of major media journalists appear to have the interest, or the requisite knowledge, to do that, when it comes to analyzing UFO-related issues.
In further evidence of that observation, I would suggest that one has only to witness how “major media journalists”, and most of the gathered White House press corps — plus President Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders — snickered at even the idea of “UFOs”, in a recent White House Press Conference that followed the DoD disclosure. See:
I would have thought that if even the DoD is suggesting that these craft are exhibiting unknown and incredibly “exotic” technologies — such that these craft may be, as Fravor said, “not from this world” –, then perhaps the major media (and especially the major media’s correspondents) would address these matters RESPONSIBLY.
But I guess that that’s just me.
4. Further about Fravor and Elizondo:
— (a) How is it that the Fravor’s account to FOX’s Tucker Carlson does NOT match the evidence seen in the VIDEO: the alleged pilot describes a “Tic Tac”-shaped object hovering above churning water under a clear sky, but the released video shows another scenario entirely. Where is the video of encounter that this alleged PILOT was describing?
— (b) Some observers have asked if Fravor is actually whom he claims to be. In that regard, they ask:
How is it that Fravor — the alleged pilot — uses TERMINOLOGY that seasoned pilots (especially MILITARY pilots) presumably would NOT use — terms such as “DRIVING” — in describing PILOTING or MANEUVERING an aircraft ESPECIALLY in such a high-risk MILITARY pursuit of a mysterious “unknown” and possibly “ALIEN” craft?
— (c) To what degree, if at all, are we to accept Elizondo’s assertion that the DoD — allegedly after YEARS of his running a MULTIMILLION-DOLLAR “UFO” ANALYSIS DoD PROJECT (by whatever the name) which allegedly FOUND EVIDENCE of INTELLIGENTLY-CONTROLLED “AERIAL” OBJECTS (a) THAT EVINCED TECHNOLOGIES BEYOND ANYTHING THAT THE DoD (ALLEGEDLY) POSSESSES AND (b) WHICH MAY CONCEIVABLY POSE A THREAT TO THE NATION’S SECURITY — LOST INTEREST in these mysterious objects AND in the technologies and capabilities that those objects might represent and DEFUNDED THE PROJECT?
Is Elizondo’s account true?
5. What IS the actual DoD stance on the “UFO”-issue?
Even if Elizondo’s account about the DoD defunding of his project is true, what does that account suggest as to what may be the ACTUAL SITUATION of how the DoD CURRENTLY views the UFO-issue?
Let me try to understand this:
Possibly EXTRATERRESTRIAL ALIEN INTELLIGENCES — or OTHER actors — operating AMAZINGLY HIGH-TECH POTENTIALLY HOSTILE CRAFT IN U.S. AIRSPACE — have been TRACKED and POSSIBLY CAPTURED (perhaps with some of their CREWS?) — and the ONE DoD OPERATION IN CHARGE OF INVESTIGATING THESE CRAFT AND ENTITIES HAS BEEN DEFUNDED?
Wouldn’t that be like saying “Let’s spend umpteen-BILLIONS of dollars to send astronauts to explore Earth’s Moon and then, following those successful missions, let’s also decide to NOT send any more manned missions to the Moon for at LEAST another 45 years”?
Oh, wait — according to the “official” record, we’ve done EXACTLY that!
Or so we, the world’s public, have been TOLD.
Could it be that some parts of the “official” “Moon” story — as well as some parts of the current DoD story (AND Elizondo’s story or his UNDERSTANDING of the story) about the DoD “UFO” Project — are NOT THE WHOLE TRUTH or, possibly, may be include elements that are NOT QUITE TRUE?
What is the TRUTH?
But I digress.
Note: Some sources have recently reported that the DoD CONTINUES to have an active operational “UFO” (by whatever the name) project underway. Does this include Elizondo’s former project? Are OTHER DoD “UFO” projects involved? How are we to verify and analyze those claims?
As well, could it be that Eizondo’s DoD project was not the ONLY DoD UFO-related project all along?
Maybe this bit of the puzzle is will be ironed-out in the coming days.
Or could it be that the COMPARTMENTALIZATION, the SECRECY, the RESTRICTIONS on “THE NEED TO KNOW”, are THAT tight?
6. To what extent will ADDITIONAL, LEGITIMATE, UFO-related revelations emerge from the DoD?
And how are we to judge the content of those revelations?
For that matter, is it possible that we are now faced with a parallel to what happened with PROJECT BLUEBOOK — the “public face” of the USAF’s “UFO” research-interests — which was OFFICIALLY SHUT-DOWN in 1969, while one or more allegedly “clandestine” — or at least unpublicized — USAF UFO-research-projects CONTINUED to actively collect UFO-reports and analyze the UFO-issue from a military standpoint?
Back then, the USAF — backed by the infamous “CONDON REPORT’s PREFACE AND CONCLUSION (and not necessarily by all of the Report’s CONTENTS), and more officially backed by a subsequent decision by Congressional committee — claimed that “UFOs” were not a “national security issue”, and so it officially ALLEGEDLY dropped all interest in the “UFO” subject.
But, at the same time, and AWAY from the public spotlight, the DoD’s alleged ACTUAL concern about “UFOs” CONTINUED via a JANAP-146 directive that commanded that all “UFO” (in the literary meaning of the term “unidentified flying objects”) related military (and various other-sourced) reports should CONTINUE to be channeled to a research-office in the DoD for analysis.
So, if the DoD is CONTINUING to study the UFO-issue, whether within the confines of the project that Elizondo formerly headed — or within OTHER DoD projects that have yet to be publicized:
— What are the parameters of this project?
— Do those parameters perhaps go BEYOND the limitations that may have been applied to Elizondo’s alleged DoD project when he was in charge?
“Stepping out on a limb” — and into realms that are even more contentiously controversial — one might also ask if this other alleged project has to do with (1) “black” projects, (2) detection, (3) reverse engineering and manufacture and operationally testing, (4) capturing or recovering of “aliens”, (5) and even such alleged programs as the one allegedly called “SOLAR WARDEN“. Not familiar with that one? Look it up: See:
7. As to WHY NOW: Loads of questions:
(a) Is this the actual beginning of LEGITIMATE “Disclosure” to prepare us for a PEACEFUL event — or for an impending “alien INVASION” or “alien ATTACK”?
For example, as some persons claim, is there an ACTUAL UNDERWAY SPACE-BATTLE IN NEAR-EARTH ORBIT, BETWEEN OUR MILITARY AND HOSTILE ALIENS, such that “Disclosure” has now become more necessary than ever?
Or, INSTEAD, is the current form of “Disclosure” intended by “the powers-that-be” to serve as something of a “FALSE FLAG” event — such as, when the time is right, to lend credence to a potential FALSE CLAIM of an impending “alien invasion or alien attack” — in order to “justify” something major that’s NOT actually “alien-caused” but IS on the list of what some “powers-that-be” wish to accomplish?
Or is it a ploy to convince OTHER influential elements — such as the Congress or the American people — to direct even MORE funding and MORE support — “no questions asked” — to empower the initiating and attaining of secretive military-or-political goals?
Shades of what happened in this country in the wake of 911 — UNLESS the warning is honest and legitimate and UNLESS our political and military leaders truly and honorably act to PROTECT our liberties and our rights.
(b) There is another aspect to this conundrum:
Might this current release of hitherto-secret “inside-information” be a self-serving attempt by “insiders” — who have been “keeping the secret” since at least the early 1950s — to be able to defensively declare, when the information-dam finally breaks and the alleged truth finally starts pouring out, that they themselves were “trying against all odds to get the truth out all along”?
HOW DEEP — AND HOW LABRYRINTHINE — DOES THIS RABBIT-HOLE GO?
(c) Back in the 13th Century, St. Thomas Aquinas wrote a treatise in which he speculated about how many angels could (presumably simultaneously) dance on the head of a pin. Maybe in his mind he could envision “angels” — but all that he could most probably actually see with his eyes, and actually feel with his fingers, was the pin.
Similarly, in the current instance, all that we have — UNTIL the information becomes sufficiently contextual, sufficiently plentiful, and sufficiently substantive — is the word (and documentation?) of these two DoD/USAF persons, and a video whose content and validity is also currently subject to controversy.
Perhaps, on those points, there is more to come.
But in the meantime, what VERIFIABLY VALID CONCLUSIONS are we to conclude can dance on THOSE “pins”, ESPECIALLY when the validity of the “pins” THEMSELVES are in question?
8. An afterthought as to the question of WHY the DoD has released this information:
Might it be possible that this current “official exposure” thing is a “SET-UP” — one that is designed to “suck ‘UFO-believers’ in”, only to then — at some point — “pull the rug out from under them” in some way, so as to damage their credibility?
This sort of thing has happened before, in the UFO field (as well as in other political contexts), so why not AGAIN?
There’s a saying that goes “Beware Greeks bearing gifts”. Its derivation is the legend of the Trojan Horse — a construct via which Greek soldiers were able to fool the Trojan soldiers and invade the city of Troy.
Or is it possible that the recent (or upcoming?) DoD UFO-related revelations have a COMPLEX of purposes — purposes visible and purposes hidden?
9. IS THERE A “MESSAGE” IN THE DATES?
The USAF (allegedly) officially shut-down PROJECT BLUEBOOK on December 17, 1969. Isn’t interesting that, according to the NYT report, the DoD released this video on December 16, 2017 — i.e., ALMOST TO THE SAME DAY (although 48 years later)?
And as to the date of the release being almost precisely 48 YEARS SINCE THE CLOSING OF PROJECT BLUEBOOK, might there be an additional mystery about the date of release — if we allow ourselves to hover over the border between reality and paranoia — if we consider that several outstanding UFO-related headline-events also occurred in the YEAR 1948? For example, consider:
In 1948, USAF pilot Thomas Mantell crashed and was killed, in trying to have his plane chase a UFO.
1948 was also the year of the alleged AZTEC, MEXICO, UFO crash in which, allegedly, alien bodies were recovered.
1948 was also the year of the “1948 FUKUOKA UFO INCIDENT“, which was reportedly the first time that a USAF plane used airborne radar to track a UFO.
So, is there “A HIDDEN MESSAGE” in the choice of dates?
Of course, there also occurred OTHER major UFO-related events in OTHER years too, and perhaps that fact would negate the hypothetical relevance of any speculated tie-in between the year 1948 and the fact that the current DoD information-release comes 48 years after the closing of PROJECT BLUEBOOK.
Should we take a healthy step backward and plant our feet firmly on the “reality” side of the numbers-hypothesis abyss?
In sum, IS there a SIGNIFICANCE to the TIMING? Was the choice of timing merely a p.r.-related “anniversary thing”? Or is the timing, and its speculated link to key dates in the past, purely COINCIDENTAL?
IMO, there may be far more to this story — also including in regard to HOW, and WHY, and TOWARD WHAT GOALS, the DoD (etcetera) is RELEASING this information and is allegedly CONTINUING this investigatory pursuit — than meets the eye.
As to the UFO field itself:
Even outside of these current DoD-related claims, there already is a HUGE amount of interest, research, and evidentiary documentation — and controversy — both domestically and internationally, about the subjects of “UFOs”, “aliens” or “extraterrestrial life-forms”, secretive military or “black budget” aerospace-related projects. Yet there also may, in some cases, be reasons — in the “public interest” and/or for “other purposes” — to keep aspects of these things “under wraps”.
Are those reasons ethically justifiable? You decide.
THE TRUTH IS OUT THERE. My view is that if we ask the right questions, and seek the right answers, the odds may increase that we may come closer to finding the truth.
OR WOULDN’T YOU AGREE? 😉
