One of the founders of Reality Uncovered, Stephen Broadbent, used photos from a recent New York luncheon involving Admiral Gary Roughead, Chief of Naval Operations, to ‘out’ the officer as Richard Thielman (aka "Source A").
After further internet research, Broadbent goes on to conclude:
Among the implications of Broadbent’s ‘exposé’ and ‘outing’ is that the alleged February 2008 UN discussions on UFOs never took place, and that a secret Navy extraterrestrial liaison program is fictitious.
The problem is that the same source Broadbent uses to finally confirm the ‘outing’ of the officer in question, a retired Navy Scientist, undermines his alleged ‘exposé’. Conveniently, Broadbent ignores key questions that arise from the ‘outing’ that lead to a contrary conclusion to his ‘exposé’.
According to the scientist, Dr Bruce Maccabee, the officer in question had high security clearances in order to visit him unescorted at a secure Naval facility in 2008.
Dr Bruce Maccabee met Source A at secure Navy Laboratory in 2008
That supports his claims that he was a
covert operative for classified programs involving senior US Navy
Broadbent goes on to answer his own questions:
Having reached this definitive conclusion, this is what Broadbent has to say about the final confirmation that led to the ‘outing’ of the officer in question:
This final confirmation along with other material used to reach the conclusion that Source A had not served in the military since at least 2001 led to the stark (in bold) conclusion:
Unfortunately, for Broadbent he omits to mention that the same source he used to confirm his outing of Source A, directly contradicts his ‘exposé’. The source in question is recently retired Navy scientist Dr Bruce Maccabee who in 2008 was still working at the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center, in Virginia.
This is what Maccabee had to say in a 2009 interview about a meeting he had with Source A in 2008.
So here we have a respected senior Navy scientist confirming that Source A had genuine credentials, and a very high security clearance as well to enable him to enter the facility unescorted.
All that Broadbent refers to is that Dr Maccabee confirmed the officer’s identity and that was somehow the final nail in the coffin that his claims were all a hoax.
It is disingenuous to use a respected authority such as Dr Maccabee to "out" someone, but totally ignore his testimony when it is contrary to the 'exposé' that Broadbent is pursing.
If Maccabee's testimony is to be
accepted, then how was it possible for the alleged 'fraud' Broadbent
describes in his 'exposé' who has not served in the military since
2001, to pass through unescorted all the security levels at a
classified Naval warfare facility, and visit Maccabee in 2008?
Security clearances are regularly
updated and limited to specific periods so even if Source A used an
old uniform or military ID card from 2001 or earlier, how was he
cleared by security personnel to enter the various levels of
security and finally enter Maccabee's secure facility in 2008?
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work through all the implications of this, but it appears that Broadbent, et al, are pretty oblivious to the implications of Maccabee's testimony because his 'exposé' requires debunking Source A.
Why? Perhaps Dr Maccabee himself may have the answer.
In his 2009 interview he went on to say:
The implications of Source A’s meeting and discussion with Dr Maccabee are startling.
A senior Navy Scientist is discussing
with an unescorted officer with high security clearance in his
classified facility, issues concerning UFOs, secret UN discussions,
and senior Navy personnel wanting to disclose the existence of
extraterrestrial life. If Source A is not who he claims to be, then
it appears that a secure US Navy facility was compromised at various
security levels by someone who wanted to have a conversation
about UFOs with a Navy Scientist for unknown reasons.
That lends credence to his original claims that he is a covert operative within the shadowy world of classified operations and UFOs sanctioned to leak information by a group of Navy admirals disenchanted with official UFO policy.
Source A’s outing coincides with Admiral Dennis Blair’s forced resignation as the Director of National Intelligence. Perhaps it’s sheer coincidence but Source A’s outing may signal a push back against Navy sources in favor of UFO disclosure.
If he is an exposed covert operative, his ‘outing’ is likely to have significant effects including official attempts to discredit him as a legitimate source of information that can be traced to more senior Navy officers.
