Scottish ‘X-Files’ Kept Secret for Years by CIA Are Released

Article by Andy Shipley                               July 17, 2020                              (dailyrecord.co.uk)

• Declassified CIA documents have revealed “the global scope of CIA activities and the evolution of its interests… from assessments of the Soviet economy, to public perception of the Vietnam War abroad, to perceived communist influence in Latin America, to the rise of the terrorist threat, and more eccentric issues like UFOs and psychists,” said an expert in intelligence and international security at the University of Glasgow, Damien Van Puyvelde. “All of these can be linked to the broader context of the Cold War.”

• In particular, the documents show the extent that the American CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) have kept tabs on Scotland. Some of the weirdest records relate to the controversial Stargate program, which is credited for influencing the 2009 movie: The Men Who Stare at Goats, starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor, in which US special forces attempt to harness paranormal powers as a weapon – by trying to explode the hearts of animals just by looking at them.

• A 1964 report by the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (NICAP) research group lists UFO sightings across the globe and includes a mysterious case in Wigtownshire on April 4, 1957 when three Scottish radar posts tracked a UFO that “dove and circled” at between 60,000 and 14,000ft. Wing Commander and eyewitness, W P Whitworth, is quoted as saying, “Quite definitely this was no freak. It was an object of some substance and no mistake could have been made.” The report’s recommendations include boosting attempts to communicate with extraterrestrials and even drafting ‘space law’ to govern how humans interact with ET. “On the basis of the evidence in this report, NICAP has concluded that UFOs are real and that they appear to be intelligently controlled. We believe that it is a reasonable hypothesis that UFOs… are manifestations of extraterrestrial life.”

• In the 1980s, the CIA took an interest in the work of leading Edinburgh University parapsychologist Deborah Delanoy. With a hidden camera, Delanoy exposed a 17-year-old self-proclaimed metal-bender named Tim as a fake. A report reveals that “Tim confessed to deceptive behavior. He said that he was a practicing magician who had wished to see if it were possible for a magician to pose successfully as a psychic in a laboratory.” According to Van Puyvelde, the CIA took an interest in the Scottish spoon-bending teen after rumors that the Soviet Union was interested in psychics in the 1970s. “The CIA’s own conclusion by the mid-1990s was that the entire program was not useful to its operations.”

• On December 21, 1988, Pan Am Flight 103 was brought down over the Scottish village of Lockerbie. By 1990, the investigation was still ongoing and it would be another year until two Libyans were indicted. According to CIA notes, on June 7, 1990, a psychic was tasked with describing a photo of the reconstructed baggage carrier which held the plane’s bomb. In 22 pages of scrawled notes and sketches, the psychic revealed: “There is a bomb in the box and it explodes. It makes me think of a bomb blowing up a person. I can see red, fire and jagged flames. Something about the target makes my eyes burn.”

• Another pair of ‘secret’ reports from August 1951, shows how meticulously US intelligence monitored the industrial output within the Soviet bloc to detect any military or technological use. The reports focused on the production of screws and bolts in what was then Czechoslovakia. An order from 1950 was made for ‘one tonne of two-pointed rivets imported to Prague from Dieck’s Ltd in Glasgow’. The CIA found it suspicious that “There is a complete lack of all sizes of winged screws. There are none at all in stock”. An evaluation of the material was ordered.

• A memo marked ‘confidential’ from August 6, 1964 – the day after a report was made to Congress on the notorious (and later debunked) Gulf of Tonkin incident which led to the US escalation of the Vietnam War – examined Scotland’s reaction to US retaliatory airstrikes in North Vietnam. The memo said that the escalating crisis in South East Asia was front page news in the UK – with most media backing US action. “The only anti-American incident reported was in Glasgow where demonstrators daubed slogans outside the US consulate.”

• A terrorism review from 1983 delves into a rise in letter bombs in the UK by groups such as the Scottish National Liberation Army. The report was deemed so sensitive, it was only released in 2010 in a “sanitized” form. The review identifies targets of letter bombs sent in 1982 to include government offices in both Edinburgh and Glasgow, unnamed political party headquarters, and the offices of the British Industry Secretary and the Prime Minister in London. They conclude: “In the attacks to date, the letter bombs have contained only small amounts of explosives, probably to avoid personal injury and to preclude discovery by security measures.”

• Another ‘secret intelligence report’ from 1984 tackles European, including Scots, support for communist regimes in Central America. With the Soviet Bloc’s “massive propaganda and disinformation” campaign, the leftist guerillas appeared to be winning the propaganda war in the west. Insurgents were coordinating their international ‘peace movement’ activities through Mexico City. “There is no way a small Central American country or even Cuba could mount a worldwide propaganda campaign of this kind,” said the report.

• Other CIA documents include an analysis of Social Democrat Roy Jenkins’ ‘Glasgow by-election’ victory in 1982, overturning a Tory majority; a ‘terrorist’ attack on the US consulate in Edinburgh with three “gasoline” bombs hurled against the building; and Pakistan’s move into a Scottish and Indian dominated jute fiber production industry.

• Van Puyvelde notes that, “Overall, it is quite remarkable that the CIA is making all of this material available online. By comparison, the (British) Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) does not make its records available at The National Archives or its website. This is a missed opportunity to improve public understanding of intelligence.”

 

Incredible evidence has emerged of the extent that American CIA agents have kept tabs on Scotland.

Declassified documents range from paranormal research to political intrigue – lifting the lid on the Scots ‘X-files’.

Dusty files locked away include UFO sightings, psychic powers and Cold War espionage over decades of spy games.

Some of the weirdest records relate to the controversial Stargate programme which has long fascinated conspiracy theorists.

The shadowy work was widely credited for influencing the 2009 movie The Men Who Stare at Goats – starring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor.

In the film, US special forces attempt to harness paranormal powers as a weapon – by trying to explode the hearts of animals just by looking at them.

Lecturer in intelligence and international security at the University of Glasgow Damien Van Puyvelde said: “The references reflect the global scope of CIA activities and the evolution of its interests.

“From assessments of the Soviet economy, to public perception of the Vietnam War abroad, to perceived communist influence in Latin America, to the rise of the terrorist threat, and more eccentric issues like UFOs and psychists.

“All of these can be linked to the broader context of the Cold War.”

Buried in the historical files is a 1964 report by the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena research group – which included retired armed services chiefs.

Kept in closed CIA files for nearly 40 years, the 186-page document lists UFO sightings across the globe and includes a mysterious case in Wigtownshire on April 4, 1957.

It tells how three radar posts tracked a UFO which “dove and circled” at between 60,000 and 14,000ft.

The close encounter was described by Wing Commander W P Whitworth, based in Scotland, as: “Quite definitely this was no freak.
“It was an object of some substance and no mistake could have been made.”

How a NASA Scientist Explains the Truth Behind Moon Conspiracy

Article by Sebastian Kettley                              July 8, 2020                               (express.co.uk)

• On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong (pictured above) and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to stand on the surface of the Moon. A popular story is that Armstrong encountered an extraterrestrial presence on the Moon’s surface that forced NASA to drastically alter its lunar plans. Three Apollo missions were canceled, and Apollo 17 became NASA’s final Moon landing in 1972. The space agency’s goals were refocused on constructing an operational space station in low Earth orbit. An unused Saturn V rocket from one of the canceled missions was repurposed and transformed into Skylab – the US’s first space station – which was operational for about 24 weeks between 1973 and 1974. For the past twenty years, astronauts have been living on the International Space Station.

• The seeming lack of progress in NASA Moon missions led many to question whether the Moon landings ever happened at all, or if something had prevented the agency from returning. On December 18, 2007, the NASA Lunar Science Institute was asked directly whether the reason that NASA had not gone back to the Moon was because Armstrong saw alien base camps on Moon. Astrophysicist and interim director for the institute at the time, Dr David Morrison answered, “Although you would never know this from the distorted perspective of some groups that post crazy claims on the internet, there is no scientific evidence for UFOs or aliens; no aliens or alien artifacts were seen on the Apollo or any other human space missions; and such false claims are irrelevant to the space policy of the United States or NASA.” “Fringe groups who believe in UFOs and aliens do not influence NASA space policy, fortunately.”

• In November 2017, Dr Morrison was asked again if it was true that Armstrong saw an alien base camp on the far side of the Moon, and whether other “missionaries” had been sent to the Moon as well. Dr Morrison replied, “It is not true. …There were no aliens on the Moon. Armstrong and other Apollo astronauts saw no evidence of aliens either on the near-side or the far-side of the Moon.” “You seem to be confusing science fiction with reality.” And “they were not missionaries,” Morrison added.

• “Believe me,” said Dr Morrison, “reality is more interesting than this sort of fantasy. And in addition, it is real.” Morrison claimed that the Apollo program was cut short as a result of drastic budget cuts that made the Moon landing effort unfeasible.”There are many complex issues that have determined our human space program for the past 30 years, mostly dealing with politics, technology, and availability of funding.”

[Editor’s Note]  We know from several sources that Armstrong did see extraterrestrial craft during his visit to the Moon in 1969. Because he was under a strict non-disclosure order, he became close-mouthed and reticent to discuss his feat for the rest of his life, which is strange being the first man to walk on the Moon (as far as the mainstream public is aware).

We know why Armstrong remained quiet about his encounter with alien craft. The question here is why is Dr Morrison claiming that “there were no aliens on the Moon…(there is) no evidence of aliens either on the near-side or the far-side of the Moon,” “… (there is) no scientific evidence for UFOs or aliens…or alien artifacts…”? Is he lying as directed or simply ignorant of the truth? We have learned that the NASA space agency is really two organizations. The NASA that the public sees is merely a front for the Uber-NASA that is far more advanced than its public counterpart. The secret Uber-NASA is one of a handful of secret space programs run by the US government, and one of many out in deep space. This distinction was made at the space agency’s inception in the late 1950s. They brought in former Nazi rocket scientists to create a public space program to get to the Moon using out-dated rocket technology, just to appease the masses. Behind the scenes however, the former Nazis struck a deal to provide the American military-industrial-complex (deep state) with advanced anti-gravity/electromagnetic spacecraft technology so long as American industry assisted the Nazis with the development of the breakaway German colony’s own space fleet under the ice of Antarctica.

High-level NASA administrators know about this hidden history and are sworn to secrecy. Lower level NASA administrators and scientists do not. I would guess that Dr Morrison is not aware of NASA’s secret space program, and is simply regurgitating the disinformation and propaganda that the deep state has instilled into his and the entire mainstream mindset.

 

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to stand on the surface of the Moon. Three years later, NASA astronauts Gene Cernan and Harrison Schmitt of Apollo 17 were the last to do so. In the 50 years since the Moon landing, human space exploration has been limited to low Earth orbit as humans have been living on the International Space Station (ISS) for close to 20 years now.

   NASA’s Dr David Morrison

The seeming lack of progress in sending crews to the Moon has led many to question whether the Moon landing ever happened at all.

Even more bizarrely, many people have suggested over the years NASA did go to the Moon but something has prevented the agency from returning.
A popular myth among online conspiracy theorists is Mr Armstrong saw something on the Moon’s surface that forced the US space agency to drastically alter its plans. Namely, some people believe the astronaut encountered an extraterrestrial or alien presence on the Moon.

On December 18, 2007, NASA was challenged to address the theory, putting to rest rumours of an alien base on the Moon.

A question posed to the NASA Lunar Science Institute read: “If this is not true that Armstrong saw alien base camps on Moon then why no NASA plans for a base station at Moon and there have been no moon missions for the past 20 years or so?”

The question was answered by Dr David Morrison, an astrophysicist who at the time served as the interim director for the institute, now the Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute.

He said: “Although you would never know this from the distorted perspective of some groups that post crazy claims on the internet, there is no scientific evidence for UFOs or aliens, no aliens or alien artefacts were seen on the Apollo or any other human space missions, and such false claims are irrelevant to the space policy of the United States or NASA.

UFO Secrecy Has Changed Our World

Article by Christina Stock and Donald Burleson                              July 6, 2020                           (rdrnews.com)

• Being from Roswell, New Mexico, Donald Burleson became a UFO researcher and author. He has given numerous lectures at the International UFO Museum and Research Center, especially during the annual UFO festival in Roswell, which had been canceled this summer due to the pandemic. Here, Burleson points out two examples of when the US government “eliminated” high-profile individuals deemed ‘dangerous’ because they knew too much about the hidden reality of an extraterrestrial presence, and “traitorous’ because they were considered ‘at risk’ of revealing the truth to the public.

• In Burleson’s book, UFOs and the Murder of Marilyn Monroe, the real story about how and why the renowned actress died was sufficiently disturbing to break ground “that badly needed breaking”. In 1962 at the age of 36, Monroe became privy to classified information about UFO crash retrievals due to her secret dalliances with President John Kennedy. A famous CIA document, issued the day before she died, states that Monroe knew about “the visit by the president at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space.”

• Monroe happened to talk to several people on the telephone about her plans to have a news conference to tell all she knew from her affairs with both John and Robert Kennedy, including evidence of alien beings kept at a military installation. If this had been revealed publicly, President Kennedy would have been exposed to charges of treason for divulging classified information. Attorney General Robert Kennedy then would have been duty-bound to prosecute his own brother for an arguably treasonous act. Instead, Monroe was murdered by lethal injection to keep her from talking.

• Burleson filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the wiretap transcripts of Marilyn’s telephone conversations referring to JFK inspecting aliens at a military base. Being denied, he filed an appeal based on the bombshell CIA document. The government accepted the appeal, thereby recognizing the authenticity of the CIA document.

• Burleson’s second example involves J. Robert Oppenheimer, the renowned and respected scientist who produce the world’s first atomic bomb, allowing the United States to prevail in World War II. But in 1953, the shadow government didn’t like Oppenheimer’s public opposition to the H-bomb. (Oppenheimer believed the government should focus on tactical nuclear weapons and didn’t have a need to develop the H-bomb.) President Eisenhower caved in to political pressures to revoke Oppenheimer’s top secret security clearance.

• But in truth, the shadow government wanted Oppenheimer out of the picture because he knew too much about the hidden extraterrestrial presence. It is a documented fact that Oppenheimer was part of the government scientific team that was sent to investigate the UFO crash in Aztec, New Mexico in March 1948. It is probable that Truman had also called him in on the Roswell UFO crash in 1947. After he lost his security clearance in 1953, Oppenheimer went before the Atomic Energy Commission in 1954 to try to get his clearance back. The chairman of the commission was Gordon Gray, a member of the secret government over sight group known as Majestic 12, and he knew of Oppenheimer’s involvement in top-secret UFO crash retrievals. No matter how persuasive his letters of support, Gray felt that it was time to take Oppenheimer out of the loop, effectively discrediting and silencing him.

• Burleson and others find it reprehensible that the government would treat a beloved actress and a national hero so badly. He wishes that he could right the wrongs perpetrated on such people by a malevolent government. He correlates his circumstance with that of Cassandra in Greek mythology who was blessed with the gift of prophecy, but cursed to have no one ever believe any of her prophecies. Burleson feels as if he too were cursed by the gods to be given the ability to see and reveal the truth of a shadow government acting only upon its own malevolent agenda — while it being too late to do the victims any good. But we can at least try to do something about the quality of their memory.

 

                 J. Robert Oppenheimer

The cancellation of the 2020 Roswell UFO Festival because of the coronavirus pandemic has set me thinking about lectures I’ve done myself at the International UFO Museum and Research Center for that yearly extravaganza, based on my own research.

                  Gordon Gray

I recall the first lecture I did on the contents of my book “UFOs and the Murder of Marilyn Monroe,” where I had the feeling that by putting those facts before an audience, we were starting to break some ground that badly needed breaking. The real story about how and why the timelessly renowned actress died is a stunningly disturbing account.

Basically, the argument I make in the book is that Marilyn Monroe was murdered by government people, in 1962 at the age of 36, because in her dalliances with President John Kennedy, she became privy to classified information about UFO crash retrievals.

                     Donald Burleson

A now famous CIA document, issued just the day before she died, states that one secret she unfortunately knew about had to do with “the visit by the president at a secret air base for the purpose of inspecting things from outer space.” (I’m quoting exactly.) When I filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the wiretap transcripts of Marilyn’s telephone conversations, the CIA declined to admit having them, and I filed an appeal based on the CIA document mentioned. They accepted the appeal, thus inadvertently authenticating the document for me, and for all of us. They wouldn’t accept an appeal based on a purported CIA document that they didn’t recognize as being legitimately their own.

Sadly, shortly before her death, Marilyn spoke to various people over the telephone about her plans to have a news conference to tell all she knew from her affairs with both John and Robert Kennedy, and all the facts converge upon the conclusion that she was murdered by lethal injection to keep her from talking. Otherwise it would have been a nightmare for the Kennedy administration, as Robert Kennedy, being Attorney General, would have been called upon to prosecute his own brother for the arguably treasonous act of disclosing highly classified information to someone not authorized to possess it.

And the Marilyn Monroe matter isn’t the only time I’ve found myself digging into the dark truths surrounding a prominent person’s disastrous treatment at the hands of a secret-loving government.
