UFOs and the National Security State

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.


  1. The consideration of a “disclosure event” whether via an announcement by the world’s media or governments, or by some other undeniable demonstration of the existence of extra-terrestrial intelligence would undoubtedly have a profound impact. Close encounters with the “Other” has always captivated the imagination of humanity. Great earthling philosophers such as Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and Jean-Paul Sartre have postulated that a person's cognition or definition of the 'Other' is paramount in defining one’s sense of self. When the “Other” is from a different star system, the philosophical consideration of self and self consciousness re-focuses to humanity as a galactic species. We are no longer alone in the vastness of universe but part of a larger community. The moral consideration given to other-worldly beings provides new insight into how we see ourselves.

  2. That link looks cool, Sense. Looking forward to digging into it.


    = Cross of Lorraine?

  4. Good stuff, Chris, Dolan is always worth an ear. An awful lot of disclosure rumblings at the moment, however credible. Both David Wilcock and Project Camelot are suggesting that a major disclousure event might occur in november in a two hour television special! (Two hours seems a little tardy, no?) Interestingly, the timescale for the event coincides with the premier of the new "V" remake.

  5. Hi Chris,

    I am so perplexed!

    So, the President wins the Nobel Peace Prize just an hour or so before the VIOLENT act of slamming a rocket (LCROSS)or bomb really into the moon, most innocuous and peaceful body in the sky????

    I mean, suppose there were little tiny nearly invisible living creatures there in that crater that was literally "attacked"? And what gives NASA or any other country the right to bombard the moon?

    There's just something too weird about that!

  6. Nice thought, Sensei. For the record I prefer 'Terran' over 'Earthling'. Earthling makes me think of children.

    An environmentalist friend of mine is an intern at NASA. She told me yesterday that the scientists who briefed her group on LCROSS this past summer were unconcerned about the satellite crashing into the moon, explaining that the moon survives being hit by meteors every couple of months. In her words, "it was a pretty convincing 'eh'."

    I only hope the satellite didn't irradiate or poison whatever water it may have found. Wouldn't that be ironic.

    Great blog, Chris, you never disappoint. I look forward to reading your take on the coincidence of the President's Peace Prize.

  7. Good post Chris.

    Makes me wonder whose attention we're trying to get by bombing the moon, are we literally asking for trouble?

    This year has been really moony for sure.

  8. Lynnertic…

    I appreciate the term “Terran” as well to describe humanity ready to join a larger community. Under the circumstances, your sense of Earthling equating to children might be appropriate!


  9. Great post!
