US Government to Shed Light on UFO Sightings

Article by Sangalang Kristine                               July 29, 2020                              (socialnewsdaily.com)

• The Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash occurred in 1947. A decade later, the US government began construction on the secretive Area 51 base in Nevada. The US military has classified all information regarding UFOs, and the US government declined to give the UFO phenomenon any credence. More recently, however, the US Navy declared UFO videos taken by Navy fliers to be authentic.

• In 2007, the ‘Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program’ was created under the US Department of Defense to analyze all unclassified UFO sightings within the US. This was closed in 2012. Then in 2017, the military created a successor UFO research organization, the ‘Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force’, which is still operational.

• In June of 2020, the issue of UFO sightings was discussed by US politicians. In a Senate committee hearing, Senator Marco Rubio requested that unclassified information reviewed by the UAP Task Force be subjected to an intelligence committee and publicly released. Experts in the field may now be able to freely discuss the matter with the public, with the support of the government. This legitimizes the possibility of an extraterrestrial origin for these unexplained UFOs.

• The release of ‘unclassified’ UFO reports is intended to create a sense of transparency among US government agencies, while ‘classified’ reports may be reinvestigated by a “new set of eyes”. This is better than keeping multiple agencies of the government in the dark about the UFOs flying above US airspace. The lawmakers are not as worried that these unidentified aircraft are from outer space as they are that they might represent ‘advanced technologies’ achieved by other nations, or illegally created by terrorist groups. Transparency among government intelligence agencies would promote proper investigation and processing of UFO sightings and reduce unwarranted threats to US security.

• While it is not disputed that a majority of UFO sightings are mistakes or misidentification, many such sightings remain unexplained. Credible sightings are often made by trained pilots or radar technicians. And during this current pandemic, there has been a fifty percent spike in reported UFO sightings in Canada compared to last year.

 

Recent news has reported that the Pentagon and the US military (and Navy) are to release videos and explanations on both recent and historic UFO sightings in the country. It is required for the agency that are handling UFO sighting analysis to provide publicized reports. These will be submitted to an Intelligence Committee to further analyze, process, and validate recent (and historical) UFO sightings.

             Senator Marco Rubio

It was the year 1947 and the biggest UFO controversy abounds in the US. The Roswell encounter is probably one most controversial UFO sightings in the history of the United States. Then, Area 51 was built a little over 10 years later. This place is pretty much the biggest, and most secretive, military bases in the entire country. What made these incidents more intriguing is the fact that the US government was always so mum about it. The military has classified all pertinent information and the citizens are left to their devices to create explanations to the reaction of the United States government.

The US Government on UFOs

In history, it was the responsibility of the Navy and the Military to collect, analyze, and archive any reported UFO sightings within the US aerospace. This was to protect the interests and the security of the citizens of the United States. In 2007, a new department called Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program was created under the US Department of Defense. This was to analyze all unclassified UFO sightings within the US. It was budgeted by the US government but was only set to be operational a total of five years. This department was closed in 2012.

It was only in 2017 when a new task force was created to replace the Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The new task force was named Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon Task Force. They are responsible for tracking down, analyzing, and archiving any information on UFO sightings. This government unit is still operational to date.

In 2020, it was discussed in a Senate Hearing that unclassified information reviewed by the UAP Task Force be subjected to an Intelligence Committee. This was to create an additional analysis to any data produced by the task force. This legitimizes the issue that there is a possibility that UFO sightings from extraterrestrial beings MAY be true. Experts on the field may be able to freely discuss the matter with the public, with the support of the government.

US Government Not Interested in UFOs? Don’t Believe It!

Article by Christina Stock and Donald Burleson                                July 20, 2020                                (rdrnews.com)

• When one submits a Freedom of Information Act request for information pertaining to UFO, the inevitable government response is ‘no records exist of this type’, and ‘the US government has no interest in the subject’.

• In 1950, Wilbert Smith, had a master’s degree (in electrical engineering) from the University of British Columbia and was in charge of a radio communications program for the Canadian government. He heard that American scientists shared his interest in exotic propulsion systems possibly used by UFOs. He was given an interview with a top scientific adviser to the U.S. Department of Defense named Robert Sarbacher, who was a Harvard professor and had an office at the Pentagon.

• During their meeting, Smith asked Dr Sarbacher if it was true that the subject of flying saucers was highly classified in the United States. Sarbacher replied, “Yes, it is classified two points higher than the H-bomb. In fact, it is the most highly classified subject in the US government at the present time.” Ah, but ‘the US government has no interest in the UFO subject.’

• After his meeting with Sarbacher, Smith wrote a top-secret memo to the Canadian government describing his theory that UFOs might employ a form of magnetic propulsion possible to adapt for human use, and referenced Dr. Sarbacher in D.C. As a result, the Canadian government instituted a research program called Project Magnet with Wilbert Smith in charge. (The top-secret 1950 Canadian memo was declassified in 1978.) The Canadian government was certainly taking UFOs seriously.

• Later, Smith joined other UFO investigators to research the 1948 Aztec, New Mexico UFO crash. They found a representation of alien hieroglyphics that were seen on the craft, and sent them to a National Security Agency chief cryptologist, William Friedman.

• But of course, the United States government has no interest in UFOs, at all.

agencies, as I have done many times, has probably had the experience of seeing those agencies reply that they have no records of the type requested, and in fact, aren’t interested in the subject of UFOs. One can amass an abundance of evidence that this isn’t true.

Let me tell you a story that is true. Years ago, there was a Canadian radio engineer named Wilbert Smith, who was very intrigued by the question of UFOs and their propulsion systems. He had heard that some American scientists shared his interest. In 1950, through some contacts at the Canadian embassy in Washington, he was granted an interview with a top scientific advisor to the U.S. Department of Defense named Robert Sarbacher, who was a Harvard professor and had an office at the Pentagon.

During their meeting, of which Smith recorded detailed notes, Smith asked him if it was true that in the United States the whole subject of flying saucers was highly classified. Dr. Sarbacher replied, “Yes, it is classified two points higher than the H-bomb. In fact, it is the most highly classified subject in the U.S. government at the present time.”

Imagine how absurd it would be for the government to say, on the one hand, “UFOs are of no importance to us” and to say, on the other, “but let’s classify what we know about them higher than we classify the hydrogen bomb.” One can’t have it both ways, and Dr. Sarbacher’s eminence as a scientist promotes one’s confidence that his remarks about UFO secrecy mean just what they say.

Tom DeLonge Says the Government Has Information That Would Change the World

Article by Emily Brown                              June 29, 2020                              (unilad.co.uk)

• Tom DeLonge, 44 (pictured above), former member of the rock band Blink-182 and currently a founding member of the UFO research organization ‘To the Stars Academy’, grew up in a ‘hardcore’ Christian family. But once he was touring with his band, there was ‘nothing to do but read books’ and his eyes were opened to different belief systems. He was consumed by an obsession to find out why we’re here on this planet and what it’s all about. The subject of aliens and UFOs seemed to encompass everything he wanted to know – dealing with religious beliefs systems, the potential for life out in the universe, and different ways of thinking and understanding new technologies.

• DeLonge says there are ‘thousands and thousands of documents and pieces of evidence (about UFOs) that have come out from the [US] government’, whether they be from ‘flag level (military) officers, or CIA declassification, or people that work on programs’. He is convinced that government officials are hiding information that could change life as we know it. He and fellow ‘To The Stars’ researcher, Luis Elizondo, who headed a Pentagon UFO research program, have created the History Channel show, “Unidentified”, which just began its second season. The show discusses sightings, patterns and experiences that suggest we’re not alone in the universe. “Do they have things that I think would blow it wide open and change the world in 10 seconds? Yes, I [think they] do,” says DeLonge. “But I don’t have any evidence of that myself, and I can’t prove that to the world. But I have my reasons, and I hope that one day that does happen, in a constructive way that doesn’t scare people.”

• DeLonge believes the government has its reasons for keeping information classified. It could be ’embarrassing or scary’, or even dangerous if it fell into the wrong hands. But he stressed that government officials ‘don’t have a monopoly on info’. He says that his own research academy has ‘a great deal of information’ it’s hoping to release ‘when the time is right – when it makes sense and when [they] can do it respectfully and in a way where it’s not adversarial with [their] partners in the US government.’

• DeLonge says that humans are making ‘gigantic strides’ on the subject of extraterrestrial life. Through ‘To The Stars’, he hopes everyone will be ‘part of this awakening’ in a way that is ‘scientifically accurate, scientifically based, and credible.’ He points to a memo by US Air Force General Nathan Twining in the early 1950s, in which Twining states, ‘not only are these (aliens) real, but they’re not visionary, they’re not fictitious’. Said DeLonge, “I remember reading that in my early 20s and I was just floored by it, I was like ‘oh my God’. People [ask] ‘where’s the evidence?’, well (Twining) came out and said it. That’s just one of tens of thousands of documents that have come out on the stuff but… that was one particular piece that I’ve always remembered.”

• In his UFO research, DeLonge started to notice patterns emerging. Then he started to draw attention from ‘a lot of people from the government’ and found himself in ‘a little hot water’ as a result of his findings. While he couldn’t go into detail, DeLonge admitted to finding something that ‘really scared him’ during his research. “If you’re in the ocean and you saw a great white shark, does that mean everything in the ocean is a great white shark? No, it means that one particular species is pretty dangerous if you’re dealing with it in a certain environment. It doesn’t mean that blue whales are dangerous, or that dolphins are dangerous. You’ve got to think of the universe as teeming with life and different types of supernatural forces.”

• “I think that we’re dealing with multiple frequencies of existence as well as linear travel,” explains DeLonge. “So my analogy is: you’re in the ocean and you see a jellyfish, then you see a dolphin, then you see a blue whale and you think you’ve seen it all. Then, all of a sudden, a coke can drifts by and you’re like, ‘What’s that? What the hell?’, when you don’t even know there’s land and humans making cans of soda. You’ve got to think of the universe that way – it’s not just one group, it’s not just one thing, it’s everything. It’s infinite, so I just think we have to wrap our heads around that.”

• The government might have details that would blow our minds, but it’s key that those in charge understand it first. DeLonge admits that he would ‘absolutely be thinking the same thing’ when it comes to keeping information classified and making sure ‘people don’t lose control of their emotions over a subject that we don’t even understand yet’. The government is not ‘one symbiotic, perfect functioning organism. There may be some people who agree with keeping information secret while others are keen to share it. But DeLonge says that, ultimately, ‘what everyone’s after are peaceful, progressive conversations that don’t scare people [and] that can help us achieve the things we need to achieve with regards to (the extraterrestrial) subject.’ Until then, the best we can do is explore the evidence and keep an open mind.

 

DeLonge, 44, has long been open about his interest in aliens; a subject he first delved into while on tour with Blink-182 before the days of smartphones, when there was ‘nothing to do but read books’ during long trips.

           Luis Elizondo

The musician grew up in a religious household, his mother a ‘hardcore devout Christian lady’ who made the family go to church multiple times a week, so it wasn’t until he started touring that DeLonge realised his mother’s beliefs weren’t upheld by everyone.

     General Nathan Twining

DeLonge told UNILAD that learning about different belief systems really ‘opened his eyes’ and incited an ‘obsession’ with finding out ‘what is this all about? Why are we here? Is it really an accident?’

The UFO enthusiast was determined to discover how humans could ‘change the way we think so we can progress as a species’, and found that the subject of aliens seemed to encompass everything he wanted to know, dealing with ‘religious beliefs systems, the potential for life out in the universe, different ways of thinking and [the] potential for understanding new types of technologies.’

DeLonge ultimately put music on the backburner to focus on his research with the help of his company To The Stars Academy, and in recent years the team has made waves with their work, one of the most recent accomplishments being the release of three videos showing UFOs.

The former frontman further explores the subject alongside Luis Elizondo, who headed the US government’s Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program (AATIP) between 2007-2012, in the new series of Unidentified.

In the show, airing on BLAZE between June 29 and July 4 as part of UFO week, the researchers discuss sightings, patterns and experiences that suggest we’re not alone in the universe.

While it can be hard to wrap your head around the idea of life beyond Earth, DeLonge has stressed there’s ‘thousands and thousands of documents and pieces of evidence that have come out from the [US] government’, whether they be from ‘flag level officers or Central Intelligence Agency declassification or people that work on programmes’.

In spite of the abundance of information that’s been made public however, DeLonge is convinced officials are holding some information close to their chests; information that could change life as we know it.
