It appears that since the revelation of government interest in UFOs, the shadow world of agents and people concerned with military and national security are now stepping in to put down any and all speculation about what the military and the Pentagon know about UFOs.

In my opinion, it is a counterintuitive move but not a surprising one.

Throughout the history of UFO studies, most overseers take on this “what you see is what you get” simple-mindedness with the phenomena and the government simply says that “What you see is none of your business and they go farther by claiming it is their business and then, as usual, retracts their statements when the average person begins to ask questions.”

I am sure many of these questions can be considered uncomfortable, especially when the topic of little green or gray men come up in the various discussions on news programs and radio shows.

I know that in a fit of excitement a lot of researchers want full disclosure, however, as I have said in the past, the government works on the basis of compartmentalized disclosure and even then they are not so generous with information they decide to release.

If we go back to the 1940s and look back at the Maury Island affair, the two men, Fred Crisman and Harold Dahl that witnessed the UFO armada over the Puget Sound and recovered debris from one of the saucers were threatened by the infamous Men in Black.

In fact, what was recovered by the harbor men had piqued the interest of the FBI and the Air Force. Two Air Force intelligence operatives, Captain Lee Davidson and First Lieutenant Frank Brown of the U.S. Army Air Force demanded that Dahl and Crisman produce debris they said fell from a saucer-shaped craft.

One of the officers said that he thought there might have been “something” to the story, but they had to leave around midnight. They were in a hurry to be at Hamilton Field on August 1, the day when the Air Force was to split from the Army.

The two officers flew out of McChord Air Field around two o’clock in the morning on a B-25 bomber, with a crew of two other men. About twenty minutes later, the airplane crashed near Centralia, Washington.

The two enlisted men managed to parachute to safety, but Davidson and Brown were killed, making them the Air Force’s first casualties.

Dahl and Crisman said that the AF officers took some of the strange metal on board. People thought they heard anti-aircraft guns shoot the plane down. The local newspapers and FBI received phone calls stating that the plane was shot down to cover up the information Brown and Davidson had found. Because of the loss of life, the Air Force broadened its investigation and the FBI launched its own.

The FBI closed the case and ever since the men were forced to retract their statements many have considered the Maury Island sighting a hoax. However, debris from the B25 crash can be seen at a museum in Kelso, Washington to this day.

Circumstantial evidence actually perpetuates a conspiracy theory that the U.S. Government was behind a cover-up that may have involved anything from UFO tests to dumping nuclear waste from Hanford in Puget Sound. It is believed a shadow government agency sabotaged the B-25 bomber in order to eliminate the investigators and blame Dahl and Crisman.

After the Maury Island incident Kenneth Arnold, a pilot of from Idaho saw nine chevron-shaped craft flying from Mt. Rainer to Mount Adams.

At the time, Arnold said, the appearance of these flying unknowns didn’t particularly alarm him, because he assumed they were some kind of experimental military aircraft. If they were, nobody in the War Department soon to be merged into the Department of Defense was admitting to anything.

In fact, the official Army Air Corps position was that Arnold had either seen a mirage or was hallucinating. He insisted he was perfectly alert and lucid, adding that he was not a publicity hound, either. He also invited both the Army and the FBI to investigate. The Army sent a couple of officers out to talk with Arnold. Even though they concluded that “a man of his character and apparent integrity” almost certainly saw what he claimed to have seen, the Army’s initial verdict remained unchanged.

As Arnold’s story leaked out, other people stepped forward to say they had seen the objects, too. The most credible report may have come from a United Airlines crew, which reported seeing nine similar disk-like objects over Idaho only 10 days after Arnold’s sighting.

Then came the Roswell Incident, an incident where the Army Air Force admitted that a flying disc had crashed near the Roswell airfield. The statement made it into the Roswell Daily Record and was broadcast all over the United States as an event where the military could finally get down to the bottom of this ”flying saucer” business.

Later we learned that the military decisively retracted their statements on the matter and presented a far more down to earth explanation by dragging out a weather balloon and claiming that the military was incapable of telling the difference between a flying saucer and something that they are used to seeing all the time at the base.

When it comes to historical reviews of UFO cases there has always been a little bait and switch with regard to intelligence that the government has gathered.

In 2017 it appeared that there was a breakthrough when it was announced that the Pentagon was using defense department money to investigate the threat potential of UFOs and their engagement with the Navy in 2004.

The Pentagon had admitted to a “secret UFO Program,” known as the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program or AATIP.

On December 16, 2017, news of this obscure program was first announced by the NY Times and Politico. Both media outlets reported that UFOs now are being referred to as “Unidentified Aerial Phenomena” or UAPs to reduce the stigma surrounding the topic – were the direct focus of this program.

However, the Pentagon like usual has changed their stance on the matter.

The Pentagon now says AATIP was not a UFO or UAP program.

According to a report filed by The Black Vault, The Pentagon informed John Greenwald Jr. that the AATIP program was developed to “investigate foreign advanced aerospace weapons system applications with future technology projections over the next 40 years, and to create a center of expertise on advanced aerospace technologies.”

Since 2017, UFO enthusiasts as seen the AATIP program as a kind of vindication that their various suppositions were true about the curiosity of the military with regard to UFO sightings.

Now the Department of Defense has done a complete 360 on the matter which makes you wonder why the dramatic about-face on a very important issue.

On May 22, 2019, the NY Post ran the headline, “The Pentagon finally admits it investigates UFOs.” At the time this article was published, investigative journalist Steven Greenstreet with the NY Post had received word from the Pentagon through spokesperson Christopher Sherwood that AATIP, “…did pursue research and investigation into unidentified aerial phenomena.”

Understandably, the story then went viral.

However, the Pentagon’s stance seems to have changed. Although the statement that was given to the NY Post was accurately reported; the Pentagon now states it was not entirely fact-based.

This new statement does not put into question the credibility of the servicemen who reported the sightings of the Tic Tac UFO’s that stalked the U.S.S. Princeton and Nimitz in 2004.

In fact, the whole event is still a mystery that the Navy claims is still under investigation.

Believe it or not, the Pentagon maintains that the U.S. Navy continues to investigate UAPs, and the three videos that have surfaced in the past two years that have garnered worldwide attention, are still considered UAPs. So the Pentagon hasn’t tried to change or close the door on the whole UFO topic.

The National UFO Reporting Center gets witness accounts of unidentified flying objects every year from people all over the United States.

Peter Davenport of the National UFO reporting center is based in Washington State and he says that there were at least 4000 UFO reports in his state alone in 2019.

Reporting UFO sightings and then recording them is incredibly complex. UFO investigations are simply an intellectual vortex that can easily addict you, draw you in, and still tell you very little about the fundamentals which lie below. It may be a Black Hole that has no bottom, and which defies all academic “laws of nature” inside its event horizon.

Part of its impenetrability is its dependence upon people to give accurate and detailed reports of the sightings to the National UFO reporting center’s website.

Recently we reported that Washington DC was shut down because something was seen violating airspace over the White House.

It happened on November 26th at 8:30 AM.

The White House and the Capitol went into lockdown as a Coast Guard MH-65, call sign Blackjack, scrambled to intercept the possible intruder and F-16s were sent to runway alert at Andrews Air force base, prepared to rocket into the sky if needed at a moment’s notice. Confusion followed as to what exactly was detected and why.

The official word that went viral in the mainstream was that the military overreacted to a flock of seagulls that moved like a blob over the area.

However, the military is now saying it was radar error and that the system was accidentally tracking an aircraft that was well within the VFR rules. Whatever happened, the radar picked up on the unknown aircraft and it appeared as a blob or huge blip on the screen.

This triggered the lockdown and once it started there was no way of retracting it until the safety of the area could be ascertained.

This reminds me of what happened around the time the Phoenix Lights were seen in the skies of Arizona on March 13th, 1997.

In the July 1997 issue of Scientific American, it was reported that on the night of the UFO event, bursts of gamma radiation, were detected by the Hubble Telescope. The gamma radiation was eventually traced back to somewhere within our own solar system.

NORAD went Defcon 2 on the evening of March 13, 1997, after an Air Force Misti-3 satellite covering North America was disabled and had its batteries drained as a spaceborne object was observed passing over the satellite.

Also on March 13, 1997, then-President Bill Clinton fell down and broke his knee while visiting the home of golfer Greg Norman. Clinton had to be rushed away in a helicopter and was kept at Bethesda Naval Hospital underground for over two days. There were press conferences showing diagrams of all the surgery that was going to have to be done and how long it was going to last and why he had to cancel his big meeting in Sarajevo with the prime minister of Russia.

Just hours after these events, around 2 am on March 14, 1997, President Clinton was rushed to the hospital after suffering from a knee injury.

Oddly enough, a few days later he’s walking around and he’s okay. The issue was dropped.

Government secrecy theorists might be easily led to the conclusion that the broken knee was a cover story designed to hide the perceived need to get the commander-in-chief to safety in the wake of the unnerving events happening out in the Southwest desert.

A little over a month later here was as incredible report that a U.S. satellite, GOES-9, had photographed “a very large anomalous object” over central Alaska 8 a.m. Pacific time. Immediately, the GOES-9 image was posted on several websites, and the news went viral on the internet.

A second GOES-9 image, recorded at 8:30 a.m., showed that the “anomalous object” had flown south and was now just west of the northern coast of Vancouver Island. The image also showed “an anomalous object of the same size” over the Pacific Ocean approximately 50 miles west of San Francisco. A third GOES-9 image, taken at 9 a.m., showed the San Francisco object gone and the first object back in Alaska, near Glenallen. A fourth GOES-9 image, taken 11 a.m. registered a new object “half the size of the first two” hovering over Colorado.

The first two objects were described as “square or rectangular” and an estimated 25 miles long.

At 2 p.m., the Federal Bureau of Investigation issued a “heads up” alert, citing “a potential threat” to the North American Air Defense Command (NORAD) center at Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, 65 miles south of Denver. Maj. Gen. Jeff Grime, CO of Cheyenne Mountain said there was no threat to the nearby city of Colorado Springs or to any other military facility in the area, adding, “It’s totally focused at us here.”

Rumors circulated that NORAD had “gone to DEFCON-4 in response to the presence of the “anomalous objects” found by GOES-9. Maj. Gen. Grime told the media that extra precautionary security was needed to protect the 1,100 personnel at the base.

Security measures included cancellation of public tours at the center, erection of barricades on the access roads, and a 24-hour-guard on the maintenance portal on the south side of the mountain. The “lockdown” was carried out by 80 troops of the 721st Security Police Squadron.

Either the whole radar systems in our arsenal are faulty or there were some suspicious things happening at that time that appeared to be some sort of invasion.

Meanwhile recently two incidences have been reported both in Arizona and California that have authorities baffled.

In an incident that harkened back to the 1997 Phoenix Lights incident, people in the east valley of Mesa, Arizona saw a large glowing orb in the sky that released several probes to the ground and then disappeared.

The Outlaw Military Operations Area is not far from where the sighting happened. However, as per usual the military said that there were no operations being carried out the night of the sighting.

There were no navigating lights on the unknown craft which rule out the idea that it was a jet or some other aircraft.

In fact, the military acknowledged to a local news station that it is an FAA rule that aircraft have navigation lights.

The whole event was caught on camera.

ABC Channel 15 reached out to the Federal Aviation Administration, Luke Air Force Base and the Army National Guard, but none could say for certain what it was.

It leaves the answer to what was caught on camera to anyone’s guess.

Those sightings of unidentified flying objects come just days after Lucille Le Corre, a scientist at the Planetary Science Institute, shared video showing a green object streaking across the sky above Phoenix.

Meanwhile, UFO footage that was shot in October went viral on December 3rd. It is certainly dramatic footage of what appears to be a cluster of lights or a huge mother ship over the small California town of Menifee.

At first, witnesses thought they were seeing drones that were lurking in the clouds.

The assumption, however, was instantly dismissed taking into account the above-average height it flew at, equal to “2,000ft in the air”.

On top of that, the object seemed to be silent, stuck on the horizon without changing its position.

At one point, the huge UFO was just hovering in the same spot for over five minutes before it speeds off into the night sky.

There is always that lingering question as to what people are seeing. We have been seeing a number of fireballs over various parts of the world, which most certainly gives people a reason to look up.

We know that there have been tests being conducted and various secret space missions being launched by Elon Musk and the military.

Starlink satellites have been seen in the sky and have been mistaken for UFOs, however, the sighting in California looks nothing like the string that some people are seeing.

With the about-face by the Department Defense and the issue of the military and their association with UFOs, one has to wonder if the seven months of so-called disclosure was really a public relations test balloon to see how the public would react to acknowledgment by the military.

It appears to be a set-up but not a set up for disclosure.

It is just a blip in UFO history but a very interesting blip.
