The Stonewalling of High
by George Andrews
A large crack appeared in the stonewalling of high strangeness on
October 14, 1988. On that date, there was a semi-official admission
of extraterrestrial intervention in human affairs, in the guise of
a two-hour TV special entitled UFO COVER-UP?... LIVE!
Participation by U.S. and Soviet officials was so extensive that the
broadcast could not have occurred without the consent of both
The program was presented to the public simultaneously in the United
States and the Soviet Union, the first time in history that any TV
program had received such preferential treatment. However, in spite
of this clearly implied U.S.-U.S.S.R. seal of approval (or perhaps
because of it?), the program contained a clever mix of information
The valid information was that we are not alone, and that the
government has made a hitherto secret agreement with short gray
humanoids (the "Grays") who say
they are from Zeta Reticuli.
Although it was not specifically stated that the Grays were the only
E.T. group our government has made contact with, that implication
was made. To the extent the implication was made, it was a
UFO COVER-UP?... LIVE!, hosted by Mike Farrell, implied
that Uncle Sam had made a smart deal. However, the truth of the
matter is that this deal was the most disastrous mistake, not only
in the history of our nation, but in the history of our entire
civilization. There were other E.T. groups that we could have made
incomparably better arrangements with. Although this scandal is
similar in nature to the Iran-Contra deal, it is a tragedy on a
scale of such unprecedented magnitude that in comparison Iran-Contra
seems like very small change indeed.
The case of contactee
Edouard "Billy" Meier in Switzerland, which
Mike Farrell stigmatized as "an obvious hoax," is not without its
ambiguities, absurdities and contradictions. Nevertheless, the
physical evidence is so strong that this is one of the best
substantiated cases on record.
Dr. James Deardorff has speculated that the
E.T.s may be making deliberate use of absurdity as a form of
strategic camouflage, in order to ensure gradual rather than sudden
realization of their presence. By cloaking their activities in an
aura of absurdity, they repel serious investigation and make people
hesitate to endorse the reality of the phenomena, keeping it all
borderline and marginal, which distracts human attention from their
If this is the game that is going on, the E.T.s may be feeding Meier
a mixture of truth and falsehood, which he relays to the public in
the sincere belief that it is all true.
For example, Meier believes himself to be the only genuine UFO
contactee, an obvious absurdity, because there have been thousands
of genuine human-alien contact cases during recent years. He also
states that the many thousands of abduction and crop circle
incidents reported during recent years were all hoaxes, another
obvious absurdity. I concur with Deardorff that Meier is sincere in
his beliefs, but that he is being fed information mixed with
One of the most curious aspects of the Meier case is the veritable
obsession displayed by the government's plainclothes media agents
(such as William Moore who has publicly admitted his links with
government agencies) in over-zealous attempts to discredit the
evidence. An all-out media vendetta has been waged against the Meier
case that seems totally out of proportion with the investigation of
any one single UFO case.
Is this because Meier's contact was not with the Zeta
Grays but with a rival E.T. group that in appearance is almost
indistinguishable from us, and which shares a common ancestry with
us, known among researchers as the Blonds or Swedes? This is the
same group that was known in antiquity to the Scandinavians as the Aesir,
to the Irish as the
Tuatha De Danaan, and by other names in
One of the modern Soviet cases mentioned on the Mike
Farrell program, in which the UFO opened up like a flower, was an
encounter with the Blonds, a group with whom I think we could work
out a valid alliance.
Dr. Jean Mundy is a Professor Emeritus in Psychology at Long Island
University and has been in private practice in psychotherapy and
hypnotherapy for over twenty years. She is a member of a long list
of professional and honorary societies, and she has published
articles on a wide variety of subjects in both the academic and the
popular press. During recent years, she has focused her expertise on
the subject of UFO phenomena.
Dr. Mundy has written the following
analysis of the public reaction to the 1988 TV program especially
for this book:
The most astonishing UFO TV documentary aired to date, on October
14, 1988, with Mike Farrell as the host, had all the ingredients of
Note just some of the cast of characters:
A Russian scientist, revealing that aliens
have landed in Russia and contacted their military
Two CIA agents, identities disguised,
revealing that extra-terrestrial aliens are now the "guests
of the U.S. Government."
About a hundred residents of Gulf Breeze,
Florida, who have witnessed and photographed the extensive
UFO activity in their home town.
Abductees telling their own stories under
Expert witnesses from the military saying
that sightings they reported while in service 'disappeared'
from the records.
A psychiatrist reporting that abductees she
has treated were sane and suffering from trauma as a result
of their contact with aliens.
Evidence by investigators of crashed UFO
Testimony from Budd Hopkins, who has
hundreds of abductee cases for over 12 years,
that genetic experiments are being performed by aliens on
humans on a large scale.
Other witnesses, each expert in his/her own
field, testifying to the validity of photographic or other
tangible documentation of UFOs.
Paintings of aliens drawn by artists from the
testimony of witnesses.
Surely, even by Hollywood standards, here are all the
ingredients of a box-office hit. Was it a hit?
Well, during the
two-hour show, 75,000 viewers did pay one dollar each to have their
phone-in vote about their belief in human-alien contact recorded.
What other signs of success made the front page? Not a one! The show
was a flop in terms of arousing public interest. How can this be?
How could such a carefully concocted combination of ingredients,
culminating in the most newsworthy disclosure in history, not elicit
a bang, nor even a whimper?
I played a videotape of the show to my adult education class on
alien-human contact. I watched the reactions of my class members.
Thanks to the review/playback capability, I was able to conduct some
The adult students who signed up for this course were believers in
the possibility of human-alien contact. Some even had personal
experience of contact, yet after the screening they were more
doubtful than before! I then recognized that UFO COVER-UP? . . .
LIVE! made brilliant use of the best propaganda techniques. If you
have a tape of the show, watch it again, and listen carefully to the
soundtrack. Look at the painted back-drops and, most important, look
at Mike Farrell's reactions.
You will see and hear some interesting contradictions. The astute
viewer cannot dismiss these contradictions as sloppy production. The
production had a huge budget and was planned many months in advance.
In fact, Budd Hopkins reported to me that each witness was
interviewed at length before the show, then certain words of that
interview were selected to be used.
The words were put on cue cards, and
on the nights of the show, the witnesses were allowed to say
only what was on the cards. UFO COVER-UP? . . . LIVE! was carefully rehearsed. Reading
from cue cards, unless one is experienced in doing so, gives words a
stilted sound that many listeners take as phony. Score one for not
believing the witnesses.
Score two: When words are spoken over background music, the music
makes an unconscious impression that flavors the emotional impact of
the words. For example, the relentless "approach," louder and louder
in intensity, of the orchestration of the Jaws soundtrack as the
shark nears its victim builds up a feeling of dread even before any
action takes place. The background music for UFO COVER-UP? . . .
LIVE! is light, pleasant dance music. While the Russian is speaking
of terrifying abductions, the music is a rousing polka!
Score three: When the Russian says,
"The aliens communicated with the terrified
soldiers by mental telepathy," Mike Farrell responds, "Oh, they
used music, just like in the movie Close Encounters."
We depend very much on the reaction of others to set
our own reaction. Obviously, if someone tells you a story and they
are laughing, you think the story is funny. If they are in a panic
state while telling it to you, you think of it as tragic. Throughout
of the entire show, Mike Farrell reacted to all the UFO information
with puzzlement, but in an amused and light-hearted manner. So, for
the most part, the audience did too.
Score four: Through the skillful but unobtrusive use of another
media technique, the painted backdrop against which the alien Grays
are portrayed is a bright sunny room overlooking a garden! Nothing
to take seriously there, certainly nothing to worry about.
Also the depictions of the Grays were idealized and did not conform
to witness descriptions, giving the impression of benign Disneyesque animated characters.
Score five: Another powerful media technique is to trivialize
something important by focusing on a tiny detail. For example,
telling the audience that the aliens "prefer strawberry ice cream"
reduces these mysterious life forms to a childish format.
Score six: We are so accustomed to Hollywood movies that we are
entertained by a "historical" film, but never for a moment truly
believe that the "action" taking place on the screen is real. We
know it is rehearsed and played by actors. When Mike Farell puts the
UFO reports in the same category as the movie Close Encounters, the
audience automatically thinks of the TV documentary UFO COVER-UP?
... LIVE! as just another Hollywood movie. No one writes a letter to
the editor of their local newspaper or phones their Congressman to
demand action about a crime committed in a Hollywood movie.
There is more. One of the women presented in the documentary who has
been abducted by aliens is an acquaintance of mine. Her entire life
has been affected by her terrifying alien contact. The one and only
comment highlighted on the cue card for her to use on the supposedly
"LIVE!" Mike Farrell show was, "Oh, he's so ugly." When my students
heard this, they giggled! They took it to be comical.
Neither my students nor the majority of the viewing audience took
the UFO COVER-UP!... LIVE! program seriously. That is why there
was no audience response. One of my students said he thought,
"The man portraying the Russian couldn't have
been a real Russian, because he spoke English too well."
No doubt he was trying to account for why the show
did not have the ring of truth to it.
The question remains: were the producers of the show, whoever they
really are, pleased that their show was a "flop," in that few
viewers took the reality of alien-human contact (or invasion)
seriously? Or were they disappointed by the lack of audience
response? What, indeed, was the real purpose of this carefully
The format in which UFO COVER-UP? ... LIVE! was presented
tranquilized the general public, as did the movies E.T. and Close
Encounters of the Third Kind, in the comfortable belief that there
is absolutely nothing to worry about, as far as any reports of
alleged "aliens" are concerned.
As Dr. Mundy has pointed out, this comfortable belief system—so
assiduously maintained by the authorities through their constant
insistence on relegating the subject of alien intervention in human
affairs to the realm of media trivia—relies for its support on some
very thin ice indeed.
This ice is so thin that it can be shattered by featherweight random
events, such as the arrival in my mailbox of a letter from Rev. John
E. Schroeder of the UFO Study Group of Greater St. Louis, saying:
You mentioned William Moore's TV program hosted
by Mike Farrell. Is it any surprise that the November 1989 issue
of prestigious Millimeter magazine for film and TV producers
listed the CIA as paying producer for that show? I wonder what
happened to the response requests? Who effectively collected
whose paying phone numbers? Why? How are they to be used? Was
any data ever given congressional members? The plot thickens!
The plot does indeed thicken.
A search of the
November 1989 issue of Millimeter magazine did not locate the item
which Rev. Schroeder is nevertheless sure that he and his wife saw
in Millimeter, though he may have been mistaken as to the issue.
This does not necessarily mean that the item does not exist, but as
we go to press the question remains unresolved. In spite of this
uncertainty, the item seems worth retaining, because both the
possibility and the questions raised by Rev. Schroeder remain
relevant, even if neither confirmed nor invalidated.
The ability to face phenomena of high strangeness with an open mind
is a rare trait, not shared by the vast majority of contemporary
humanity. The average person feels threatened or terrified by any
unprecedented divergence from conventionally accepted norms of
reality, and may react with dangerous violence.
Let us consider the case of Herbert Schirmer, who in 1967 held the
distinction of being the youngest Chief of Police in Nebraska, and
who was one of the most prominent citizens in his home town of
Ashland, Nebraska. One night while on duty in his patrol car, he
encountered a large disc-shaped UFO, which had landed not far from
the highway. When a glowing humanoid figure appeared in his
headlights, he tried to draw his gun, but found himself inexplicably
When the humanoid opened the door of his car,
Schirmer felt a cold hard instrument being applied to the back of
his neck, and he blacked out. Upon regaining consciousness, he drove
straight back to the police station and reported the incident to his
fellow officers, who noticed that he was unable to account for about
half an hour. There was an unusual welt on the back of his neck,
which later left a permanent scar.
A qualified hypnotist, Dr. Leo Sprinkle, was brought
in to regress him back to the period of missing time. Under
hypnosis, the regression indicated that he had been taken aboard the
UFO and had communicated with a group of alien humanoids during the
period of missing time. A search of the location where the incident
occurred revealed physical landing traces.
How did Chief of Police Schirmer's old friends react to his
By firing him from his job, dynamiting his car, and
hanging and burning him in effigy in the town square. His wife
divorced him, and he was driven out of town. He has since moved
frequently, contacting various UFO investigators, trying to make
sense of his dilemma.
There is a remarkable resemblance between Herbert Schirmer's ordeal
and the Jeff Greenhaw case. In 1973, Jeff Greenhaw was the youngest
Chief of Police in Alabama, and was one of the most prominent
citizens in his home town of Falkville, Alabama. One night he
received an anonymous phone call from a woman who said that a UFO
had just landed in a field not far from town. Greenhaw got into his
patrol car and drove toward that area.
As he approached the field, he encountered a humanoid
about six feet tall, covered from head to foot in metallic clothing,
standing in the middle of the road. Greenhaw pulled up near him and
There was no response. Greenhaw reached for a
Polaroid camera he happened to have with him and took four pictures.
Then he turned on the flashing blue light on the top of his patrol
car. The humanoid began to run, but not in normal fashion, moving
sideways instead of forward, taking large leaps of about ten feet at
a time very quickly, traveling at extraordinary speed. Greenhaw
began to pursue him, but his patrol car suddenly went out of control
and into a spin as he reached 45 miles per hour, obliging him to
give up the chase. He returned to town and reported the incident.
How did Chief of Police Greenhaw's old friends react to his
By firing him from his job, dynamiting his car, and
burning down the trailer in which he lived. His wife divorced him,
and he was driven out of town. He has since disappeared.
These two cases are not isolated. One could easily fill a book with
the many cases of UFO contactees who have been obliged to leave
their homes and change their names because of hostile social
pressures. As our history clearly indicates, such witch hunts are
nothing new. The average citizen's tolerance of diversity has
increased only minimally since medieval times. What sets the
Schirmer and Greenhaw cases apart from the hundreds, if not
thousands, of other cases of contactee harassment is the secure
social position they both enjoyed, until they reported their UFO
Being the Chief of Police in a small town one has grown up in
implies widespread respect and trust from a closely knit group of
people who have known you since childhood, and is about as secure a
social position in the hierarchy of the American system as it is
possible to attain. The fact that one encounter with the unknown
could in one day transform the role model for an entire community
into a despised outcast demonstrates the extreme extent to which the
average citizen feels insecure, and therefore fears the unknown.
This is true on the national level as well as on the individual
level. The thousands of documents that the government has been
obliged to release under the Freedom of Information Act demonstrate
that its internal policy concerning UFOs and extra-terrestrials is
extremely different from its publicly stated policy. To put it
bluntly, our government has been lying to its citizens about UFOs
and extra-terrestrials for over 40 years.
To point out merely one example of this duplicity:
Regulation 200-2, JANAP-146 * provides
a penalty often years in prison plus a $10,000 fine and a forfeiture
of pay and pension for any member of the Armed Forces who makes an
unauthorized statement about UFOs.
Joint-Army-Navy-Air Force Publication
If you write to the Library of Congress and ask for a
copy of this regulation, you will get an answer stating that no such
regulation exists. Air Force spokesmen blandly deny that any such
regulation exists. However, if you write to the Library of Congress
and ask for a copy of The UFO Enigma by Marcia Smith and David Havas,
which was published by none other than the Library of Congress
itself in 1983, you will find in it a statement that Major Donald
Keyhoe was the first to make public reference to the previously
Further details are to be found in a book by a well-known French
researcher, Aime Michel, published in 1969. The preface to a
previous book by Michel was written by General L. M. Chassin,
General Air Defense Coordinator, Allied Air Forces, Central Europe,
NATO. General Chassin commends Michel's ability and integrity in
The statement Michael made in 1969 translates as
"However, if it is so certain that for the
American authorities this subject is no more than crazy stories
that are completely without interest, how does one explain the
extraordinary precautions in Air Force Regulation 200-2, and the
ten years in prison plus $10,000 fine of JANAP-146, all of which
are still being enforced fifteen years later, and more
vigorously than ever?"
Since Michel stated in 1969 that the regulation had
been enforced for fifteen years, it must have originated in 1954,
which just happens to have been a year during which an exceptional
amount of UFO activity took place.
According to Ralph and Judy Blum, who received assistance from
government sources while compiling their excellent book
(Bantam, 1974), the text of JANAP-146 is contained in an official
publication of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, entitled
States Communications Instructions for Reporting Vital Intelligence
Sightings (CIR-VIS/MERINT, JANAP 146).
As the vast majority of UFO incidents get coverage only in local
news-papers, if they even get that, there is no general awareness of
the persistent UFO activity occurring in other parts of the country
and other parts of the world. Some stories in the media even state
that UFO activity is now almost non-existent and was just a passing
fad of the 50s and 60s, when the truth is that there are just as
many incidents as there ever were, but that the covert censorship is
being enforced more effectively.
Major wire services operate in collusion with governmental
intelligence agencies in perpetrating this devious form of
camouflaged censorship for one basic reason, as clearly expressed by
nuclear physicist Stanton Fried-man:
"No government of Earth would want its citizens
to pledge allegiance to the planet rather than to itself, and to
think of themselves first as Earthlings, rather than as
Americans, Canadians, Russians, etc."
On pages 188-191 of
Extra-Terrestrials Among Us, I
described the adventures of an officer using the pseudonym of "Toulinet,"
who had been assigned to write an analysis of the top secret "Grudge
13" report, after which he has been summarily discharged from
military service. During the summer of 1989, this man took the
courageous step of publicly identifying himself as former Captain
William English of the Green Berets, who had been working at the RAF
Security Services Command, RAF Chicksands, England, at the time that
he was assigned to write
the analysis of "Grudge 13."
I have been unable to either confirm or invalidate
the rumor that no sooner had he publicly identified himself than his
residence was firebombed, as had been the residences of police
chiefs Schirmer and Greenhaw in 1967 and 1973.
Attempts have been made to destroy English's credibility, such as
the U.S. Army stating that it has no military records concerning
him. However, it is standard operating procedure for military
commanders to delete, either partially or in totality, the service
records of subordinate personnel who have become security risks, as
is exemplified in "The Cutolo Affidavit," published in
Forget by Paragon Research, P.O. Box 981, Orlando FL 32802, in 1991.
Records are also systematically destroyed by the highly paid defense
contractors engaged by the Pentagon for secret projects. In November
1989, physicist Robert Lazar went public with disclosures concerning
alien discs and related activities at
Area 51 of the Nevada Test
Site. From one day to the next, all records of his previous
employment, his education, and even of his birth, vanished as if by
magic. This would have effectively destroyed his credibility, if
there had not been certain items that survived the onslaught of the
For example, Lazar stated that he had worked as a
physicist for Los Alamos National Laboratories, whose
representatives denied that he had ever been employed by them.
However, independent investigators found a copy of the telephone
directory issued by the Los Alamos Lab in 1982, which listed Robert
Lazar among the scientists employed by them. An article in the Los
Alamos paper during that same year, 1982, described Lazar's interest
in jet cars, mentioning his employment at the Los Alamos Lab as a
Finding themselves unable to destroy Lazar's
credibility in any other way, the authorities resorted to a crude
but time-tested technique and tarnished his reputation with a sex
scandal, which Lazar's lifestyle unfortunately made possible.
Some people have taken issue with my statement that we are about to
experience direct confrontation with non-human intelligent beings
from elsewhere in the cosmos in the near future, pointing out that
UFO intervention in human affairs has been minimal during the last
forty years, so why shouldn't that pattern continue indefinitely? I
have answered that question at length in my previous book, but would
like to extend my response by describing some major incidents that
occurred since its publication, which clearly indicate that we have
entered a new phase of UFO activity, a phase characterized by
deliberate and ostentatious UFO displays over heavily populated
areas on an unprecedented scale.
There was a flurry of significant UFO activity both before and after
August 12, 1986, but it was on the night of August 12-13 that the
climax of the first incident occurred. During that night, reports
came flooding in from Lake Huron to Nova Scotia in Canada, and in
the United States from Maine, New York, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois,
Arkansas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and
Florida, as well as from the town of Leongatha in the province of
Victoria in Australia.
There had also been multi-witness sightings of a
large UFO in Pennsylvania. Both of the Pennsylvania sightings
appeared to involve the same object, described as bright silver and
elliptical, the size of three buses in length. On the night of
August 12-13, the reports from Arkansas, Louisiana, and Kentucky
described a large cloud-like ball of fire. In Clark County,
Kentucky, the appearance of an enormous ball of fire that lit up the
whole sky was accompanied by a sonic boom that made houses shake,
along with an odor described as similar to gunpowder.
From Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, and Ontario came a
flood of reports about "a spiral cloud with a star-like object
beside it." An air traffic controller, Tim Jones, saw it both
visually and on his radar screen, and stated that the way it was
behaving was unlike any aircraft he had ever seen. On the same night
in Leongatha, Victoria Province, Australia, an English teacher and a
science teacher at the local high school reported that a UFO with
flashing lights had hovered and maneuvered above them for about
On the following day, the scramble for explanations began. Both NASA
and NORAD * denied any involvement in
the phenomena, and further specified that it did not correspond with
any known Soviet space activity. Speculation that a new Japanese
satellite might have exploded was squelched by a statement from
Japan's Tanageshima Space Center that their satellite was
American Air Defense Command
At this point, as it usually does whenever a UFO incident occurs
that is difficult to explain away in conventional terms, the U.S.
government brought NASA expert (or establishment hatchet man,
according to your point of view) James Oberg into the controversy to
make a statement. Mr. Oberg stated authoritatively that what
everyone had seen was fuel being dumped from a rocket on the
Japanese satellite, as the rocket boosted the satellite into orbit,
and that was that. Although this explanation left many questions
unanswered (in particular, concerning the incidents in Clark County,
Kentucky, and Syracuse, New York), it was accepted tamely without
protest by the entire news media of this great nation as the final
solution to the mystery of the night.
A lady named Lorraine Whitaker in Lanesboro, Pennsylvania, got a
clear photograph of what had been visible in the sky over her area
on the night of August 12, which depicts a sharply defined,
intensely bright cigar shape, emitting a swirling cloud of luminous
Paul Oles, who is the Planetarium Director at the Buhl Science
Center in Pittsburgh, made the following statement:
"We know what it wasn't,
but we have no idea what it was. Our most logical explanations
have been totally ruled out. It now falls into the category of
an unidentified sighting."
However, only one newspaper even
mentioned the statement by Mr. Oles. Every other newspaper
nationwide that carried the story featured the statement by Mr.
Oberg of NASA as definitive.
On the night of August 15, 1986, three days after the incidents I
have just described, Angelo and Grazia Ricci of Verona, Italy, were
abducted while on a summer vacation camping trip near Belluno,
Italy. They were taken aboard a UFO by two humanoids, each about six
feet, six inches tall, who were dressed in gray coveralls that left
only their heads exposed. Their heads were long and hairless and had
very pale skin. Their eyes were phosphorescent. They had pointed
ears, a normal nose, and a narrow slit where the mouth should be.
Mr. and Mrs. Ricci were subjected to medical examinations and
various tests for about three hours before being released.
A series of events comparable in importance to those of August 12
occurred on September 23, 1986. They began at daybreak, when two
brothers fishing on a lake near Daventry, England, reported that
shortly after dawn they had seen six UFOs flying in formation behind
a large UFO. Within the next few hours, thousands of people
(including police) reported UFOs flying in formation and performing
maneuvers, during which they left behind multi-colored vapor trails
over West Germany, Holland, Belgium, Luxembourg, and France.
In Paris, whole crowds of people driving to work
during the morning rush witnessed a fleet of fifteen UFOs flying in
formation. Simultaneously a ball of fire was seen over Amsterdam;
what was described as a "flying machine" was reported by a staff
member of the Royal Observatory in Belgium,
"a very luminous object shaped like a rocket,
three times as large as an airplane" as well as "a cluster of
five or six luminous green objects" were reported from
Luxembourg; and "a bright flying object with a luminous tail"
was reported from West Germany.
There were also similar reports from Derbyshire and
Leicestershire in England.
The fifteen UFOs seen over the Montreuil region of Paris were
described as silver-colored, but over the Chatelet region of Paris
witnesses perceived them as intensely luminous green and turquoise
blue, some of them emitting green flame. Over Paris they were
traveling at a leisurely pace, about the speed of an airplane during
an air show.
The nearly simultaneous occurrence of such phenomena over six of the
nations of Western Europe on the morning of September 23, 1986, has
all the characteristics of a carefully orchestrated and deliberately
ostentatious display, obviously intended to bring about widespread
recognition of the reality represented by UFOs among the intelligent
citizens of these key countries.
What was the result?
It is hard to know whether to laugh or cry over the incorrigible
hypocrisy with which the news media handled this story. How did the
journalists deal with this unprecedented manifestation of high
strangeness in the skies of Europe? They understandably requested an
explanation from NORAD.
However, when NORAD explained that what everyone had
seen was debris from a Soviet booster rocket, an explanation that
was directly contradicted by the observations the journalists had
themselves recorded, this implausible explanation was instantly and
uncritically accepted by the news media, which abdicated all
pretense of independent reasoning and parroted it ad nauseam as the
only rational solution to the enigma of what had happened that
morning throughout six nations of Western Europe.
The next example of a deliberate and ostentatious UFO display did
not occur over a heavily populated area, but northeastern Alaska is
certainly a sensitive military zone. The report did not reach the
U.S. news media until January 1, 1987, though the incident happened
on November 17, 1986. The time lag between the date of the incident
and the date the report was made public supports the hypothesis of
covert censorship of the news media.
This case bears a remarkable resemblance to the case officially
announced by the Soviet Academy of Sciences in 1985, in which a
Soviet airliner was followed by a UFO for approximately 800 miles.
The case of November 17, 1986, involved the pilot, co-pilot, and
flight engineer of a Japan Air Lines cargo jet that was making a
return trip from Iceland to Anchorage, Alaska. The crew members
first became aware of the three UFOs in the vicinity of their jet
while over northeastern Alaska. Two of the UFOs were small, but the
third was enormous, twice the size of an aircraft carrier.
The UFOs followed the cargo jet for about 400 miles,
during nearly an hour. They emitted flashing amber, green, and
yellow lights. They played games with the jet: disappearing,
reappearing, moving at incredible speeds, and hovering. At one
point, the two smaller UFOs maintained positions directly in front
of the cockpit of the cargo jet at close range, pacing the jet for
several minutes at a distance of only a few feet in front of the
cockpit, although the jet was traveling at 570 miles per hour at the
The large object appeared on the radar screens of Federal Aviation
Administration flight controllers, who gave the Japan Air Lines
pilot per-mission to attempt evasive action. Veteran pilot Captain
Terauchi carried out evasive maneuvers, but was not able to shake
off his pursuers. The UFOs later abandoned the pursuit of their own
accord, without having taken any hostile action.
FAA officials interviewed the crew members upon their arrival at
Anchorage and issued a statement saying that the crew was "normal,
professional, rational, and had no drug or alcohol involvement."
At first the FAA confirmed the sighting, then a few days later
decided that one air traffic controller had mistakenly interpreted a
split image of the cargo plane as a separate object. Establishment
hatchet man Phil Klass was then called in to kill the story by
announcing that Captain Terauchi, despite twenty-nine years of
experience as a pilot and a hitherto impeccable record, had mistaken
the planet Jupiter for a UFO.
The fact that the large UFO had been witnessed not
only visually by all crew members, but also on the jet's radar
screen, and that neither Jupiter nor any other planet appears on
radar screens, was ignored by Philip Klass. Hal Bernton, a reporter
for the Daily News of Anchorage, Alaska, conducted an interview with
the air traffic controller in question, Sam Rich, which was printed
on January 9, 1987. Sam Rich's testimony contradicted the FAA's
version of the event in several important ways.
Rich, who has worked with the FAA for over a decade, denied
categorically that he was the only air traffic controller to have
seen the radar track of the UFO. The two other controllers who were
working that shift also saw it. The track was not very strong, but
neither he nor his two colleagues thought that it could be a split
image, a possibility they considered at the time. Right after
spotting the track, Rich phoned the Military Regional Operations
Control Center, and "they informed me that they had the same radar
Rich confirmed that double images often occur on the FAA radar
screen but said that the JAL plane was not in the area where these
split images usually occur. Also, over the past decade there have
been about half a dozen reports by pilots of unidentified lights in
the region where the JAL plane sighted the UFOs.
To all this, I can now add the fact that there have been several
sightings from the area of the JAL encounter since the incident took
place, reported both by airplane pilots and by people on the ground.
So who are we to believe—the air traffic controller who was actually
on the job at the time of the incident, or the professional
Another interesting aspect of the Japan Air Lines story is that
although the incident occurred over Alaska on November 17, 1986, no
U.S. media coverage of it took place until January 1987. When this
six-week delay in making the story public was investigated, it
turned out that the story never would have been made public at all
in the United States if a family member of one of the JAL crew had
not leaked the news to journalists in Japan. Once the story had
entered the public domain in Japan, the U.S. authorities could no
longer pretend that nothing had happened.
Yet another major development in the story of this case, which
apparently just refuses to die, occurred at the end of August 1987
when MUFON * researcher T. Scott Crain
Jr. revealed (in an article entitled "New JAL Sighting Information,"
California UFO, vol. 2, no. 3) that there were indications that the
images on the radar tapes had been tampered with.
Mutual UFO Network
The FAA officials in Anchorage, Alaska, had sent the radar tapes to
the main FAA office in Washington, D.C.—but they had not sent them
directly. The tapes had traveled an indirect route, making an
unexplained detour via the FAA Technical Center at Atlantic City,
New Jersey. Researchers suspect that it was during this brief
sojourn at the FAA Technical Center that the images on the tapes
were altered. The Freedom of Information Act request that Mr. Crain
sent to the FAA Technical Center was answered evasively.
So once again, the story of the way this case has been handled by
the authorities provides a detailed demonstration of how the covert
censor-ship enforces the UFO cover-up.
What this prolonged series of deliberate ostentatious displays
appears to add up to is a reinforcement schedule, discreetly but
firmly making the presence of extra-terrestrials undeniably obvious,
puncturing the balloon of the big lie that has been foisted on U.S.
citizens and the world for over 40 years, deflating it gradually in
a manner that is calculated to oblige public recognition while
avoiding public panic.
Another important case that just refuses to die is that of the
"Westchester Wing," which was described in the Appendix of my
previous book and which continues to be persistently reported. A
major incident occurred on March 17, 1988, when hundreds of reports
came in from northern New Jersey, New York City, and up the Hudson
River Valley past Ossining to Mahopac, New York. As usual, the same
old implausible explanation was spewed forth by the authorities:
pranksters in ultra-light aircraft. Attempts have been made,
presumably by the authorities, to bolster the acceptability of this
nonsense by sending up a fleet of ultra-lights now and then to
imitate the Westchester Wing, but the imitations are so obviously
different from the genuine sightings that this desperate ploy has
been a complete flop.
Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California,
who examined a videotape of the Westchester Wing made in 1984, gave
their "unofficial" opinion in the form of a letter that the lights
are on a single, solid object—thereby ruling out formations of
They would not, of course, go on record with an
official opinion, being employees of the same authorities who
continue to maintain, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary,
that what huge numbers of people in greater New York have been
seeing for the last ten years is pranksters in ultra-light aircraft.
This unprecedented series of sightings over the same area, the first
of which took place on December 31, 1982, remains ongoing.
According to UFO researcher Rosemary Decker:
In pointing out that the vast majority of
contemporary humanity feels threatened or terrified by any
unprecedented divergence from conventionally accepted norms of
reality, you are presenting a powerful argument in favor of
governmental silence and media low-profiling. In view of the
fact that government agencies are already acutely aware of the
fear problem, we should be willing to see that some degree of
reserve and silence is appropriate. There is no good reason why
everyone should be entitled to know all there is to know on an
immediate and widespread scale, as most of the population could
not handle it, though it would be unwise to try to tell them so
The behavior patterns of our visitors indicate that
they also must be aware of the dangers of sudden wide-spread
publicity concerning their presence. Otherwise why would they
consistently manifest in waves within specific limited areas for
specific periods of time, build gradually to peaks, and then
withdraw from these areas for long periods?
Discriminating reserve and caution on the part of officialdom are
appropriate. However, blatant lying, deceit, and silencing of
witnesses by ridicule or personal threats are deplorable. Such
tactics are under-mining both national and international security.
The population of the entire world has by now received absurd
explanations and outright lies from their respective governments for
so many years that distrust of governments has reached epidemic
proportions on a global scale.
If, during the 1940s or early 1950s, the official agencies had
agreed among themselves on a policy of gradual and cautious, but
honest presentation of the facts known to them, with the humility to
be able to say 'We don't know' at times, the situation would not
have gotten so completely out of hand, as it now is. Ever since
1947, officialdom has suffered from disagreements between agencies,
between individuals within a given agency, and from differences in
direction as key UFO policy personnel were toppled from office and
replaced. Part of the problem of inconsistency in policy has been
due to varying degrees of fear of public reaction, but is also due
to the individual fears of those in office, as office-holders.
What government wants to admit that it does not know everything?
Researchers who have been studying this subject full-time for as
long as forty years admit that they don't know everything about it,
and that there are frequently extreme differences of opinion between
even the best informed of the experts.
What government wants its citizens to begin to think of themselves
as citizens of the planet rather than as French, Russian, American,
etc.? To give their allegiance primarily to the planet and only
secondarily to the nation to which they belong? With every year that
passes, many more millions of people all over the world are becoming
aware that we Earth-folk are being visited from elsewhere,
irrespective of our national borders.
With sightings and abductions having escalated to unprecedented and
ever-increasing levels, the situation is now completely out of
control. The lid of secrecy imposed on the subject by the government
for over 40 years is about to blow, no matter how desperately the
government may attempt to continue to stonewall the high
strangeness. The most effective way to avoid a sudden explosion,
traumatic for all concerned, is to decrease the pressure by
releasing as much information as possible in forms that the public
can assimilate without being excessively traumatized, such as
through this and other books and unbiased media coverage, so that
there is no longer such a gross disparity between what the public
has been conditioned to believe and what is actually going on.
A major development in the release of previously secret information
has been the publication of the briefing papers for President
Eisenhower by William Moore, Stanton Friedman, and
Jaime Shandera in
the spring of the 1987. There has been considerable debate over the
authenticity of these documents, which describe the circumstances
under which President Truman created the top secret
group in order to investigate the national security implications of
One of the original members of MJ-12 was Admiral
Roscoe Hillenkoetter, who was head of the CIA at the time that
the incoming Eisenhower administration was installed, and whose
signature was appended to one of the controversial documents, dated
November 18, 1952.
Critics bent on disparaging the authenticity of the documents were
dealt a major blow when Dr. Roger W. Westcott announced the result
of his in-depth study on the basis of stylistic analysis. Dr.
Westcott graduated from Princeton Summa Cum Laude and is Director of
the Linguistics Department at Drew University. He has published 40
books in Linguistics, approximately 400 articles, and is considered
the most eminent authority on this subject in the United States.
Dr. Westcott compared the signature on the
controversial document with the signatures on 27 other documents
signed by Admiral Hillenkoetter, the authenticity of which is not in
question, and with 1,200 pages of personal correspondence and
memoranda written by Hillenkoetter. Dr. Westcott concluded that
Admiral Hillenkoetter's signature on the controversial document is
It would seem that such a verdict, combined with the information
content of the document whose authenticity was thus
confirmed—concerning a crashed UFO and the recovery of four small
alien bodies—should be sufficient to deal a final death blow to the
credibility of our government's publicly stated official attitude
towards UFOs. However, as any psychologist will tell you, deeply
entrenched, long held, rigidly assumed, conventionally accepted,
blind and fanatical belief systems do not die easily. They tend to
be thick-skinned to the point of being almost impervious to logic. I
stress that "almost," as it is our only hope of at last achieving a
sane and rational approach to the subject.
Edward Mazur made some very relevant remarks about the MJ-12
controversy in the July/August 1989 issue of the Arkansas MUFON
The unauthorized disclosure of a highly
classified document is a serious federal crime. The forging of a
classified document purported to come from the highest levels of
government is perhaps an even more serious crime. Yet in the
five years or so since the documents surfaced, there have been
no arrests or prosecutions by the Department of Justice. Why?
According to this writer's logic, the FBI could
have easily determined, through the issuing agency, whether the
document was authentic or forged. If it was a forgery, there
wouldn't be great difficulty in finding the forger, prosecuting
him, and setting an example.
This action would also discredit and ridicule the gullible UFO
community who had 'bought' MJ-12. Why didn't the FBI take
advantage of this opportunity if the document was phony? Or
But if the document was genuine, what would the government gain
by apprehending its leaker? Prosecution would be a public
admission that MJ-12 was authentic and would reveal the very
fact that the document's high and sensitive classification was
designed to suppress. It would be far better to treat the matter
with benign neglect, as is the case now, and to work behind the
scenes to thwart any progress the might be made by UFO
researchers, while undermining their activity wherever possible.
The fact that there have been no indications of any
investigations, arrests, or prosecutions in the past five years
in the matter of these documents is of great significance.
According to the Nevada Aerial Research Newsletter,
P.O. Box 81407, Las Vegas, NV 89180, the black-uniformed elite Delta
Special Forces, which carry out their missions in black unmarked
helicopters and which act as security for the U.S. government
alien-related projects, are selected almost exclusively from
soldiers who grew up as orphans or have no close family ties.
Is this because the enemy they are trained to fight is the citizens
of the United States? And we are paying for this with our own tax
The publication of the U.S. edition of
Above Top Secret by British
researcher Timothy Good (1988) was a landmark event that
from here on out puts the critics who persist in denying the reality
of UFO phenomena on the defensive. Timothy Good employs a similar
technique to that of Barry Greenwood and Lawrence Fawcett in their
Clear Intent (1984), using contradictions within
government documents to demonstrate that the government is
perpetrating a cover-up.
However, Clear Intent was focused mainly on the
devious activities of the intelligence community within the United
States. The scope of Above Top Secret is world-wide. Timothy Good
also deals with the United States, bringing up much material that
was not included in Clear Intent, but the main thrust of his book is
a meticulously detailed investigation of what went on concerning
UFOs within the intelligence communities and officialdom of England,
Canada, Australia, Russia, China, France, Italy, Portugal, and
Spain. It is particularly illuminating to compare the information
contained in the Above Top Secret with information contained in
Clear Intent, as they supplement each other in remarkable fashion,
and the correlations provide powerful confirmation of their basic
Both books are focused primarily on unidentified
flying objects as aircraft, dealing only margin-ally with the
subject of UFO occupants, which is of course the subject that my own
books have been devoted to investigating. The publication of Clear
Intent put the cynics who maintain that UFO sightings are all
explicable in terms of weather balloons, the planet Venus, swamp
gas, mass hysteria, or flocks of geese in a difficult position. The
publication of the worldwide evidence presented with such concise,
conservatively under-stated, devastating effectiveness in Above Top
Secret put these same cynics in an impossible situation, from which
there is no way they can recover their lost credibility.
Let us now turn our attention to the aborted attempt to bring the
subject of UFOs to the attention of the United Nations.
A highly important figure in this series of events was Major Colman
Von Keviczky, whose background was summarized in the following terms
by his colleague and long-time research associate, J. Antonion
Hunccus, in the New York City Tribune of May 19, 1988:
Von Keviczky received his Master of Military
Science and Engineering (MMSE) at the historical Ludovica
University in Budapest. As a Captain and then Major with the
Royal Hungarian Army, he created the Audio-Visual Department of
the Hungarian General Staff before World War II. After the war
he worked for the U.S. occupation forces in Germany and
emigrated to the United States in 1952, the year his interest in
UFOs began. Von Keviczky is a member of the American Institute
of Aeronautics & Astronautics (AIAA) and his biography appears
in Who's Who in Aviation & Aerospace.
In the mid-60s, Von Keviczky worked with the United
Nations staff audio-visual department, where he became involved in a
controversy over UFOs and the UN. In 1966, Von Keviczky was actually
commissioned by Secretary General U Thant to work on a preliminary
memo on how the UFO problem could be inserted in the UN agenda.
However, the Major found he no longer had a job at the UN after he
leaked news of this assignment to the press. Yet U Thant confided
around that time that "he considers UFOs the most important problem
facing the UN next to the war in Vietnam,' as reported in Drew
Pearson's syndicated column.
While Von Keviczky was employed as a staff member of the United
Nations Secretariat's Office of Public Information, the UFO wave of
1952 over Washington, D.C., occurred. Being an expert in
photography, Von Keviczky realized that the photographs were
genuine, and became interested in the subject. Private discussions
with diplomats, scientists, and old friends who were still military
officers convinced him of the subject's importance.
In 1966, he
undertook the initiative that destroyed his career, which will now
be described in his own words:
In February 1966, after a long-scrutinized military study of the
UFOs' global operation, as Staff Member of the United Nations
Secretariat, I addressed THE FIRST UFO MEMORANDUM to my Secretary
General U Thant. Seizing on his constitutional duty regarding the
endangered international security, Thant assigned me to elaborate
the FIRST UN-UFO PROJECT.
This project referred to:
A coordinated cooperation amongst the nations
to control the UFOs' global operation and activities.
Immediate STOP to any HOSTILE CONFRONTATION,
which at any time could trigger a fatal Space War.
Seek OFFICIAL CONTACT AND COMMUNICATION with
the exploring UFO forces, assisted by UNESCO, and by the
governments' respective UFO organizations.
Declare the 550-mile belt around our
Celestial Body under the PROTECTION and JURISDICTION of the
Thant's common sense and constitutional duty on
the alarming worldwide UFO fever is demonstrated by his remark
within the diplomatic corps and his cabinet that:
"UFOS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT PROBLEM FACING
THE UNITED NATIONS AFTER THE WAR IN VIETNAM."
The Pentagon and the U.S. diplomacy were
immediately alerted to stop him!
During the next month, in March, to thwart Thant's
Project, the Air Force Scientific Research Board "AD HOC PANEL"
was mobilized in haste to find a suitable University to study
the UFO phenomena. Evidence:
CONDON REPORT, preface, pages 7-9
written by the Vice President of the Colorado University.
Thant was totally silenced!
A "mysterious" diplomatic power
constrained him to violate the UN Constitution, and confess also
toward the public that his interest in UFOs was only "purely
academic and personal."
According to the Associated Press, Ambassador
Fedorenko of the U.S.S.R. comforted him thus:
"UFOs are only the nightmares of the
imperialist and capitalist countries."
But against this, on the other side of the token
"For my honorarily-accepted UN-UFO Project, I
became the No. 1 ENEMY OF THE UNITED STATES UFO POLICY. I
was awarded with the notorious SECURITY RISK for scientists!
This governmental denunciation over my lifetime prevented me
from having any career job at reputable firms in the United
United Nations Secretary General U Thant, and the
Member Nations in 1966, were convinced that the Colorado
University SCIENTIFIC STUDY OF UFOs had been established to
supervise the Pentagon UFO file trustworthiness and credibility,
which would liquidate the media-generated UFO fever.
Only three years later, the Report's preface, written by the
University's vice president Thruston E. Manning, exposed
how he was hoodwinked in 1966, because the Committee was
assigned to study the UFO phenomena "WHOLLY OUTSIDE THE
JURISDICTION OF THE AIR FORCE." Namely, "outside the
jurisdiction" meant the scientific study of the hundreds of UFO
weekend clubs and news clipping collector hobbyists, thereby
discrediting the respected NICAP *
and APRO valuable public research.
National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena
On February 20, 1967, before the Committee
started, the CIA gave Dr. Edward U. Condon, Committee
Director, the necessary guideline and instruction. THE
MEETING WAS SECRET. No comments on the masterly delusion and
deception of the nations!
Well, in UFO research all roads lead to the USA's
Rome—as we have learned—THE OMNISCIENT AND OMNIPOTENT C! I! A!
The climax of the struggle over whether or not the
subject of UFOs should be placed on the agenda of the United Nations
will now be briefly described.
It is a matter of historic record that Dr. J. Allen Hynek and Dr.
Jacques Vallee prevented Von Keviczky from presenting his evidence
that UFOs are space-craft of extra-terrestrial origin before the
Special Political Committee of the United Nations, by threatening to
boycott the Committee if Von Keviczky was allowed to testify.
other three experts were Dr. David Saunders, Dr. Claude Poher, and
astronaut Gordon Cooper.
Only Gordon Cooper, who held the rank of
Colonel in the U.S. Air Force and was therefore under obligation to
obey orders, supported Hynek and Vallee on this issue. Due to the
pressure that Hynek and Vallee exerted, Von Keviczky's invitation to
testify was canceled.
In documents concerning
the Robertson Panel that was convened by the
CIA in 1953 to deal with the subject of UFOs, Dr. Hynek was listed
not only as an Air Force Project Bluebook consultant, but also as an
"OSI" consultant. "OSI" is an abbreviation for the
Scientific Intelligence, which is a sub-section of the CIA.
According to a public statement made by Dr. Hynek, he was not
invited to attend all the sessions of the Robertson Panel.
However, this statement is contradicted by an
official document dated January 27, 1953, and declassified in 1977,
which stated that Hynek "sat in on all the sessions after the first
day," but did not sign the report as an official group member. Hynek
was already an OSI consultant before he became a consultant to
Did he remain an OSI consultant for the rest of
Was he assigned to play the part of the maverick scientist
in revolt against the authorities, when the authorities realized the
explanations, such as "swamp gas" were no longer credible, in order
to more effectively acquire information from and control over the
genuinely independent researchers?
Jacques Vallee began his UFO research career in the 1960s as the
assistant of Dr. Hynek. Considering this in combination with the
result of his close collaboration with Dr. Hynek at the United
Nations, is Dr. Vallee also an OSI consultant?
On November 27, 1978, Dr. Vallee stated to the Special Political
Committee of the United Nations, which had been convened to decide
whether or not to place the subject of UFOs on the UN agenda, that:
"although the UFO phenomenon is real and appears
to be caused by an unknown physical stimulus, I have so far
failed to discover any evidence that it represents the arrival
of visitors from outer space."
Having said that, he skipped briefly over the
physical manifestations of the phenomenon, saying only they should
be studied. He then stressed the importance of studying the psycho
physiological effects on witnesses, carefully pointing out that:
"I do not believe it is within the province or
the budget of the United Nations to address such effects
directly . . ."
He continued by insisting at length on the importance
of studying the social belief systems generated by the phenomenon,
as well as the emotional factors involved—aspects of the phenomenon
so clearly outside the province and budget of the United Nations
that it was not necessary for him to repeat this a second time. Thus
with a few deft strokes, he effectively sabotaged the placing of the
subject of the UFO phenomenon on the agenda of the United Nations,
which was exactly what the CIA wanted to prevent. If
Von Keviczky had been allowed to present his evidence, there is a
strong probability that the Committee would have decided to place
the subject on the UN agenda, after which the cover-up would have
been impossible to maintain.
I salute the example set by Major Colman Von Keviczky, as I consider
him a genuine modern hero. The four propositions he suggested to
Secretary General U Thant should be implemented by the United
Nations without further delay, since they are as valid now as they
were in 1966.
In my opinion, the close encounter and abduction cases constitute
the spearhead of UFO research. Of course, it is essential to
distinguish between genuine and fraudulent cases, and this is not
always easy to do. However, with patient, open-minded, persistent,
and alert attention, it can be done. The analogy of sorting out
batches of gemstone rough is relevant here. There are ways of
detecting whether one is in the presence of the real thing or an
The genuine contact and abduction cases are the interface between
terrestrial humanity and the UFO phenomenon. There are literally
thousands of such case histories on record, and perhaps tens or
hundreds of thou-sands, or more, which have not been reported. I
would suggest that about two-thirds of the hypothetical budget be
allocated to investigating as thoroughly as possible the thousands
of case histories already on record: evaluating them for
authenticity, conducting follow-up interviews and hypnotic
regression sessions when appropriate, and feeding all the
information obtained into computers.
The data bank derived from the review of contact and abduction cases
should then be correlated with the data bank derived from the
lights-in-the-sky and physical nuts-and-bolts manifestations.
If project funds are still available after this procedure has been
completed, we should start interviewing the oceanic multitude of
contactees and abductees whose stories have only recently begun to
surface and are not yet on record. These interviews would be
conducted and tabulated along the same lines as those case histories
already on record.
From these myriad correlations, certain major patterns should
emerge. What I would consider to be of prime importance would be the
patterns indicating the characteristics of the different types of
extra-terrestrial and/or inter-dimensional humanoids,
human-appearing beings, and extremely dissimilar alien entities
involved in these manifestations, to which we have been applying the
catch-all UFO label.
The information derived from such profiles would
include not only the physical characteristics and types of craft
most frequently used, but also the behavioral characteristics.
Typical ways of interacting with us would contain clues as to
motivations for making contact with us, as well as to psychological
traits and the extent to which communication may be possible.
Such questions as superiority, inferiority, or
equality of intelligence between them and us would be explored, as
well as unusual aspects of their intelligence. Indications of the
relative benevolence, malevolence, or neutrality of the various
types would show up clearly in such profiles, as well as of their
friendliness or hostility to each other.
As abductee Ida Kannenberg has so perceptively
"There are so many different types of extra
terrestrials that it is not possible to make statements that are
valid for all of them. Many types are as alien to each other as
they are to us."
By establishing reliable profiles of the different
types most persistently reported, we would at least know what we are
dealing with and be in a far better position to communicate
If there was a war in heaven that is still going on, in which who we
give our allegiance to may be a matter of importance, though Earth
may be no more than a single sector of a multi-galactic battle zone,
at least we would be able to make an informed choice concerning
which group we enter an alliance with. That would certainly be
preferable to making a decision of such importance in our present
state of blind ignorance.
If, on the other hand, peace and harmony reign supreme over the
inhabitants of outer space, and it is we humans who must learn to
transcend our aggressive bellicose natures in order to become
eligible for galactic citizenship, we still need to know who we are
dealing with, and be able to communicate with them.
Those who are still arguing about whether or not UFOs are real will
continue to do so, until obliged to face the facts with their own
eyes. For those of us who are already aware that
UFOs are real, the
What types of beings are piloting them, and what
is their motivation for keeping us under surveillance and
clandestinely interacting with us?
It is a matter of extreme urgency that an all-out effort be made to
find out as much as possible about the different types of non-human
intelligent life-forms at present hovering above us and among us. We
can no longer continue to pretend that we are dealing with
misidentifications of weather balloons, the planet Venus, flocks of
geese, or swamp gas, and retain our position as the dominant
life-form on planet Earth.
It is time to face the fact that outer space is
inhabited, and that ever since we exploded the first atomic bombs
its inhabitants have been watching us very closely. It is obvious
that in comparison to a number of already existing alien
civilizations, our space technology is in the kindergarten stage. We
must establish open alliance with the groups we can work out
mutually beneficial relationships with, and take appropriate
measures to defend ourselves against the predatory activities of the
groups who have come here to exploit us. It is imperative that we
learn to distinguish between extra-terrestrial friends and foes.
What is at stake is our survival, not only as
individuals, but as a freely evolving species.
