Former Pentagon Official Calls for Big UFO Reveal After Secret Investigation

by Michelle Basch                   July 26, 2018                  (wtop.com)


• Retired Air Force Col. David Shea, 80, was the U.S. Air Force press spokesman from 1967 to 1971. In 1969 he announced the end of Project Blue Book by concluding that there was no threat to national security, no sign of advanced technology and no evidence that UFOs are extraterrestrial. Retiring from the Air Force after 29 years, Shea then spent 20-plus years working for Hughes Aircraft and Raytheon.

• Shea is a staunch skeptic of the existence of UFO’s from other worlds. “I would believe if I saw some evidence that showed we were visited by alien spacecraft, but there hasn’t been evidence to my mind of such,” says Shea.  (see 2:24 minute video of Col. Shea below)

• In 1947, when a veteran pilot reported seeing nine ‘flying saucers’ near Mt. Rainier in Washington, the Army Air Corps began to investigate. By the end of 1949, the Air Force had determined that “… there was no threat, and there was no visitation, there was no advanced technology.” But the Air Force continued to investigate UFOs under projects such as Project Blue Book.

• As a public relations man, Shea thinks that the Air Force inadvertently created a PR nightmare. “What was initially an intelligence matter quickly evolved into a PR problem of the greatest magnitude,” says Shea. “The Air Force, ignoring public opinion on the subject, failed to communicate its conviction that UFOs were no cause for alarm and consequently was unable to convince the American public that what it was saying about UFOs was true.” “During its more-than-20-year history of investigating flying saucers, the Air Force has been accused of almost every conceivable sin, and had been guilty of most,” says Shea.

• Shea is not swayed at all by the NY Times’ revelation of a recent Pentagon program that studied UFOs and the release of several military videos of UFOs. “They saw something, but we don’t know what it is, and we don’t have the evidence to suggest what it may be. So again, it comes back to the word ‘evidence.’” Shea thinks that with the closing of Project Blue Book, the government ‘washed its hands of UFOs’. So he wonders, “Why would the government want to do that again? …We’ve been there, done that.”

• Shea says that the Air Force was placed in the impossible position of trying to prove that aliens are not whizzing around above Earth. According to Shea, despite “exhaustive” investigations and studies of UFOs, the government has come up with nothing. “No eureka moment. No threat. No advanced technology. No alien spacecraft.” “You can’t prove that something doesn’t exist. Why doesn’t the other guy prove that (UFOs do) exist?” he said. Asked if, to his knowledge, the government has covered up evidence of alien visitation in the past, Shea says, “Absolutely not. It would be impossible to do so in our environment of leakers and whistleblowers.”

• Shea thinks the Air Force is misunderstood. “The Air Force has never said that UFOs aren’t spacecraft from another civilization. What the Air Force has said is that there’s no convincing evidence that they present a threat, or they advance scientific knowledge, or that they are alien spacecraft. Convincing evidence is the key, and that’s what we don’t have,” said Shea. Just because a military pilot spots or chases a UFO doesn’t mean the unidentified object should be considered a threat to national security, said Shea. “I would say we would be concerned if they were fired upon. We would be concerned if they started bombing our bases. None of that has happened, so whatever they’re seeing doesn’t seem to be hostile in nature. Not to worry, is what I would say.”

[Editor’s Note] Where is the evidence of UFOs? Take a look at this website. At 80 years old, Shea is clinging to his Air Force pension with both hands. The government hides all evidence of extraterrestrials, and then uses the lack of evidence to prove that extraterrestrials do not exist. Shea’s reasoning is: ‘so long as the government says that UFOs do not pose a threat, then who cares what they are?’ Shea is completely brain washed. He thinks that the whole issue of UFOs and extraterrestrials should remain hidden from the public in black projects and secret space programs. This is the attitude of the ‘old guard’ military and government authority, and this is exactly why our society has been prevented from making any real technological advancement in the past 70 years. So keep spouting your disinformation, Col. Shea, and keep collecting those retirement checks.

 

NORTHERN VIRGINIA — If evidence proving that extraterrestrials visited Earth has been squirreled away behind locked doors in Nevada, a former Pentagon official is calling for a big reveal.

“Show it to the National Academy of Sciences. Don’t hide it. Show it! We’ve been waiting for it! We’ve been waiting for it forever,” retired Air Force Col. David Shea said, raising his voice. “But so far, that hasn’t happened, and I don’t know why.”

Shea, 80, was the Air Force’s press spokesman on UFOs at the Pentagon from 1967 to 1971. He considers himself an “agnostic” when it comes to whether some unidentified flying objects are ships piloted by intelligent beings from faraway worlds.

“I would believe if I saw some evidence that showed we were visited by alien spacecraft, but there hasn’t been evidence to my mind of such,” he said in an interview at his Northern Virginia home.

In 1969, Shea wrote the news release that announced the end of Project Blue Book, an Air Force investigation of more than 12,000 UFO reports.

It concluded that there was no threat to national security, no sign of advanced technology and no evidence that UFOs are extraterrestrial.

And with that, it appeared to the public that the government had washed its hands of UFOs.

But in December, almost 50 years after Project Blue Book ended, came explosive news.

The New York Times reported that Bigelow Aerospace had been storing material recovered from “unidentified aerial phenomena” in its buildings in Las Vegas as part of a secret Pentagon UFO investigation project called the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP).

Shea was not surprised by news of the project’s existence, but he thinks if more people were aware of the government’s history with UFOs, they would better understand why, in his opinion, the government should not get involved again.

“The UFOs never seem to go away,” he said.

Britain’s Race to Beat Russia to Alien Weapons Revealed in Secret Files

by Mark Branagan              July 1, 2018               (express.co.uk)

• According to a 1000-page dossier called “UAPs (Unidentified Aerial Phenomena) in the UK Air Defence Region” recently obtained by British X-Files expert Dr. David Clarke, the British government had been running two separate UFO desks. The public UFO desk was only set up to gather reports of sightings. The real work was being done by experts within Defence Intelligence.

• The dossier reveals that the RAF (Royal Air Force) was “particularly interested in any novel technologies which might be useful to their programmes”. Intelligence service chiefs urged the British government to be on the alert for sightings of strange foreign aircraft showing sinister signs of extraterrestrial tinkering. “Particular attention should be paid to any aircraft behaving like a UFO with the tell-tale signs of “high velocities, sharp manoeuvre, stationary ‘flight’, and few radar returns”.

• British spies planned to capture a flying saucer and use its alien technology to build superweapons, the secret files revealed. After the Cold War, there were fears that the Soviet Union or China were harvesting UFO secrets to develop superfast warplanes that could hover in mid-air and be invisible to radar.

• By 1997, the British government had determined that investigating things such as ‘alien abductions’ had become “a diversion from their main duties” and ordered the X-Files desks to be shut down. This 1000-page dossier was held back from the UFO records earmarked for transfer to the National Archives as part of the Open Government project from 2008 to 2013. But earlier this year, a complete set of redacted copies of the dossier was sent to Dr. Clarke ahead of its release to the National Archives. Says Dr. Clarke, “Even though they have been partly censored they can’t conceal the fact the UK military were interested in capturing UFOs.”

 

BRITISH spies planned to capture a flying saucer and use its alien technology to build superweapons, secret files reveal. Even after the Cold War, there were fears that the Soviet Union or China had impounded a UFO and were harvesting its secrets to develop superfast warplanes that could hover in mid-air and be invisible to radar.

Intelligence service chiefs urged the Government to be on the alert for sightings of strange foreign aircraft showing sinister signs of extraterrestrial tinkering.

The dossier, obtained by British XFiles expert Dr David Clarke, reveals the Government was running two UFO desks.

The public UFO desk was only set up to gather reports of sightings.

The real work was being done by experts from Defence Intelligence.

For half a century, spy bosses pored over the reports convinced they represented “as grave a threat to the Realm as the Soviet Union”.

But by 1997, the word had come down from Whitehall that the security services investigating “X-files stuff such as alien abductions” had become “a diversion from their main duties”.

A review was ordered to confirm the desk should be shut down, but also to determine whether anything had been learned over the years which could be useful to military.

The dossier reveals the RAF were “particularly interested in any novel technologies which might be useful to their programmes”.

“Propulsion, stealth, and any novel electromagnetic technologies are of particular interest,” the confidential memos added.

Site of Roswell UFO Crash to be Opened for Tours

by Dan Lake               June 12, 2018                 (newshub.co.nz)

• For The first time since the Roswell New Mexico UFO crash 71 years ago, the crash site’s ‘debris field’ is being opened to the public for private tours. The tour can accommodate up to  four people at a time and cost from $65 to $250 per group for the VIP experience.  Tour participants also receive a chicken and cheese enchilada meal. Organizers say there are plenty of ‘surprises’ during the tour.

• In 1947, local farmer Mack Brazel found debris on his property and called the local sheriff, who called the local Army base. Over the next few days, soldiers collected debris from across the area and took it away in armored trucks. The location has become synonymous with conspiracy theories about the U.S. government’s knowledge and cover-up of alien life.

 

The site of the so-called UFO crash in Roswell is being opened to the public for the first time in 71 years.

From July 5 visitors can buy tickets to private tours at the site, costing between NZ$130 and NZ$650.
Included in the ticket is an authentic Mexican meal, chicken & cheese enchiladas with beans and rice.
Organisers say there are plenty of ‘surprises’ during the tour.

The location has become synonymous with conspiracy theories about the US government’s knowledge of alien life.

In 1947 a local farmer called Mack Brazel noticed a strange object on his farm.
