This a pretty important item asit comes from a man who had both rank and the enthusiasm to pursue his owninvestigation into the possibility of the US military actually operating asecret UFO program. He comes to thecorrect conclusion that they at most take notes from time to time and do nothave anything organized. The fact isthat in sixty years, the problem of overlap and exchange of personnel wouldproduce an impossible security situation.
Such an initiative would need tobe a complete cutout with authority to collect data as it came in. The evidence in place suggests just that wasset up. Reports such as men in blackstories could plausibly be part of such a cut out. In practice, all reports with a militaryaspect follow exactly that path in which the military witness observes the datadisappear into a cloud of misdirection. No one cares if he eventually blabs years later.
The take home is that any suchprogram is not been handled by the military at all and never was. Thus no cover up but plenty of indicativeevidence.
That such a program needs toexist is more apparent today than at any time in the past. The sheer scale and range of the apparentphenomenon is remarkable but also plausible in terms of the application ofMagnetic Field Exclusion Vessel (MFEV) technology that I have written about onViewzone and posted on here. At leastwith my article we can now understand the technology we are looking at and withthe flood of nanoscale breakthroughs in physics, we even glimpse how to getthere.
One other take home that myreaders need to appreciate. We will haveall the physical information we need inside the next thirty years because it isadvancing just that fast. This coincideswith us achieving a universal middle class economy worldwide.
Ret. Col. Says UFOs Are Real, but Denies Government Cover-Up
Feb 23, 2011 – 5:10 PM
Whether you believe or disbelieve the notion that UFOs are visitorsfrom another planet, a former highly decorated military officer now comesforward with information that may infuriate those on both sides in the ongoingET debate.
Retired Col. JohnAlexander, using his military savvy and high security clearance, spent aquarter of a century going through the top levels of the U.S. government andmilitary searching for the group of people who were allegedly responsible forUFO information and the supposedly decades-old UFO cover-up.
His conclusions: Not only is there no such group and no cover-up, butdisclosure about UFOs has already occurred on different official levels.

Retired Army Col. John Alexander says UFO disclosure has alreadyoccurred, and the ultimate solution to UFOs is more complex than most peoplethink.
With so many people crying out these days for the U.S. government orthe United Nations or even theVatican to issue some sort of "we are not alone in theuniverse" disclosure statement, Alexander says the information has beendripping out all around us, over decades, with top officials casually makingstatements about UFOs.
He references this 1950 remark made by President Harry Truman: "I canassure you the flying saucers, given that they exist, are not constructed byany power on Earth."
"Disclosure has happened," Alexander added. "It starts withformer presidents Truman, Carter, Reagan and [the
"At one time, before a lot of this information was released, I could seeboth the classified and the unclassified material. And I will tell you that 98percent of the information was already in the public domain. The only thingsthat weren't there was stuff like sources and method, which is protected, butthe information about the incident was already out there."
Several months ago, agroup of ex-military officers came forward to discuss theirexperiences when UFOs reportedly tampered with American nuclear missile sites.While Alexander acknowledges the events, he suggests why there was no intenseintelligence investigation of these incidents.
"They absolutely happened, but when it's a one-time event, the attitude ofinvestigators is: If it happens again, we'll get nervous, but since it didn'thappen, put it aside.
"It's sort of an indictment that says, despite overwhelming evidence ofinteraction with strategic systems, nothing was done. And in my view, it isput, like a number of things, in the too-tough-to-handle bin."
The 74-year-old former Green Beret A-Team commander and developer of weapons at
Nearly 30 speakers are attending this week's International UFO Congressin Scottsdale, Ariz.
In his new book, "UFOs: Myths, Conspiracies and Realities" (Thomas DunneBooks), Alexander jumps right to the chase, saying, "UFOs are real! Withno prevarication or qualification of terms, there are physical objects ofunknown origin that do transit our universe. The evidence that supports thosestatements is simply overwhelming."
The evidence he speaks of includes the hard data of sensor technology that hasfrequently confirmed the reality of physical craft and the high quality ofextremely reliable eyewitnesses who are "neither misreporting facts nordelusional."
After spending decades deeply embroiled behind the scenes, Alexander'sassertion of the reality of UFOs still leaves the bigger question: What's theorigin and purpose of these unexplained machines? (If, in fact, they are machinesin the sense that we use that term.)
"The problem is, when you discuss UFOs, we are talking everything fromlittle balls of light to hard craft a mile or more across, and everything inbetween. So what is it?" Alexander asked.
"I argue that, not only are we not solving the problems yet, we're noteven asking the right questions, because we approach this wrong.
"I suspect that consciousness is a piece of the puzzle. We talk aboutUFOs, saying it's a technology that's 1,000 years in advance, but it reallyisn't. If you follow the history of these things, usually it is somewhat inadvance, but not beyond our comprehension by any stretch of the imagination.
"The conundrum you get into is, yes, they are seen by sensors; however, atother times, they are not seen by sensors that should've seen them, and that'sone I can't answer."
Alexander is a frequent guest on "Coast to Coast AM With George Noory," the popularovernight radio program. George Knapp, a multiple Emmy Award-winning investigativereporter and a weekend "Coast to Coast" host, praises Alexander'sstance and suggests his book "will almost certainly infuriate zealots onboth ends of the UFO spectrum."
In his review of Alexander's book, Knapp wrote: "Alexander's military mindinstinctively gets to the heart of UFO cases and issues, makes quick work ofcharlatans and fools, and will likely inspire a new round of speculation abouthis presumed role as an MIB-type spook who spies on the UFO community."
In the early 1980s, Alexander created a behind-the-scenes government UFO studygroup called Advanced Theoretical Physics, or ATP, that consisted of members ofthe military, scientific and intelligence communities. With a top-secretsecurity clearance, Alexander also had a tremendous amount of flexibility.
A key outcome of that study group was, contrary to conspiracy theorists'beliefs, that nobody in the government was responsible for UFO information.
He says that after his ATP group looked at many UFO cases, they came to somekey conclusions:
There was sufficient evidence supported by high-quality data to knowthat some UFO cases were real anomalies -- not just poor observation ormisidentification.
There were cases involving military weapon systems that posed asignificant threat and should be investigated.
Multisensory data supported observations of physical craft that performedintelligent maneuvers that were far beyond any known human capability.
There were cases that involved trace physical evidence.
Study of the UFO data could provide a potential for a leap intechnology.
All that being said, Alexander also states that the infamous
,UFO case of 1947 was not, in fact, a crashed alien spacecraft but a top-secretmilitary project called Mogul. Roswell, N.M.
"It was a real incident, no doubt about it. The Air Force played itabysmally, but I think there is a prosaic answer, and that was ProjectMogul," Alexander explained. "It wasn't a weather balloon -- it wassomething really quite different. This was designed to listen to the
"So when they say it was stretched out across the field, yup, exactly theway it was done. It was supersecret and it didn't involve UFOs."
After many years of deep research into UFOs, Alexander is convinced from both apersonal and military point of view that it's a much more complex issue thanthe idea of Earth being visited by extraterrestrials. He proposes a conceptcalled precognitive sentient phenomena.
"The point is there is something out there that is sentient. When I sayprecognitive, it knows -- whatever it is -- not only what it is going topresent, but how we are going to respond to it.
"The public is interested but ambivalent in general. The public believesin UFOs, but it doesn't affect their daily lives," Alexander explained."In the military, you learn very quickly it is not career-enhancing tobring up anomalies that you don't have good answers for.
"There's a euphemism in the military: If you bring me a problem, bring mea solution."
