This presentation by Richard Dolan at XCON is from a few years back but might help put some of the nuttiness we're seeing this year in perspective. Sure, a lot of people will write all of this off as fantasy or psyops, but I think it's important to weigh the evidence available, particularly in light of the recent controversy over Dr. Steven Greer and CSETI. Here's the spiel:
NATIONAL SECURITY AND UFOS: THE FOUNDATION YEARS – 1941 TO 1973, with Richard Dolan. Richard Dolan is the author of UFOs and the National Security State, a recent work central to understanding the government management of the extraterrestrial phenomena issue during the second half of the 20th Century. He will provide a historical foundation for UFOs and government secrecy. Drawing on official documents acquired through the Freedom of Information Act, he will detail the extreme levels of interest given to UFOs by the U.S. military and intelligence community, despite public statements to the contrary.Aside from Dolan, here's an interesting article about the famous remote viewer Ingo Swann (Some of you may remember the post on Grill Flame, which dealt with the program that Swann was the superstar viewer for) and his claims about UFOs and national security:
(Ingo) Swann was part of CIA and Army agencies that were collecting intelligence on Soviet operations and UFOs. He was taken to a remote lake in Alaska where he witnessed a large triangular UFO at close range suck up the water from the lake....Apparently we are an oasis in space where aliens refuel. Swann's main concern is the undeveloped nature of human telepathy and its contrast with "the probable existence of fully developed alien telepathy."With the continuing controversy over the upcoming LCROSS mission, this quote takes on deeper meaning:
(Swann's) book describes his experiences with an ultra secret government agency where he is asked to remote view the dark side of the Earth's Moon. They observed mining and manufacturing operations are along with human looking extraterrestrials. An E.T. base on the dark side of the moon had extensive buildings, roads, and human forms digging.Swann also says that things aren't so copacetic between the national security state and the aliens:
Swann makes it very clear that our government is very much intimidated by these ETs. They are not friendly. He concludes that extraterrestrials are living on earth in humanoid bodies. He also talks about the fact that DENIAL of the ETs is a patent fact. The question is WHY?Why indeed? Maybe because whatever is going on up there, we have no control over it at all. And from what I've seen, whatever is going on has been doing so for a very, very long time.
