Why would the FBI waste ten hours interrogating someone? What did they expect him to do? Change his story? This is clearly a [HOAX!]

If someone could tell me how it is possible to video a bug fly behind a cloud 5000ft in the air I'd be very interested to hear that

First, you have to explain how someone could know how something is 5000 feet in the air without using radar or trigonometry.

It doesn't really make much of a difference if the cloud is 500ft in the air never-mind 5000ft all you guys seem to have ignored the fact that the "bug" went behind the cloud.... now I'm no Einstein but I doubt a cam would be capable of filming such an act as a small bug flying behind a cloud.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

When I went skydiving, those white fluffy clouds were at about 5,000 feet. The reporter said the rod went behind the cloud. If it did, then it was at around 5,000 feet. I think it's more likely that it just looked like the rod went behind the cloud but that it was the same color as the cloud so it just looked like it did. Photo analysis would have to be done.

That being said, I looked at the video and didn't see where the photographer was interrogated for '10 hours'. He said he was interrogated for hours during an afternoon. Can someone confirm the alleged '10 hours'?? I don't know where that came from for the title of the thread.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Here's the Rense Report

Doesn't name the cameraman and doesn't mention anything about a 10 hour interrogation.
It's Rense.
What to believe...

Tbh if it turns out the whole thing is true (FBI involvement etc) Then it may be more easy to believe but meh, all we have is a take my word for it type thing, personally I would like to see the part where it goes behind the cloud. Damn elusive skitters

Hold on here. Somethings not right.

How is this video from August 2014 ?

Just before the minute mark the presenter mentions that ..... "now years later the video is featured in a new History Channel series called MonsterQuest".

The Rods edition of Monsterquest (a series that ended in 2010) was aired in the first series during 2008 (source : en.wikipedia.org...).

NBC and History are part of the same TV broadcasting family. So it all seems to me like it was part of a subtle marketing ploy to get viewers to watch "Monsterquest" some 6 years ago.

The upload to youtube was in 2014, but the actual rod video was taken in 2002.

So it took 12 years to have this story unfold, and your right something just doesn't add up.

And my thoughts would be for ratings as this would get people to watch just in case they capture another so called rod/bird/insect in one of their videos.

To me It`s obvious why the FBI wanted to question him, based on how low the plane is flying they are near or at an airport.The FBI most likely thought or suspected that the "UFO" was a ground to air missile ( like a stinger maybe) remember this was in 2002 when the whole terrorist scare was in full swing.
They probably wanted to know if he saw where it came from,did it make any sound,etc.

In 2002 any small missile shaped object flying near an airport would most certainly be of interest to the FBI.

You've got to be kidding me, right? This garbage was thoroughly debunked years ago. It is a bug.

This wasn't too long after 9/11. Maybe they were more concerned with his filming at an international airport.

Something about this story is fishy. First, unless I'm mistaken, the only "ufo" in the report are the two orbs in the first 100/sec of the clip. Then, when the story slows down the 7 frames, they only show the last frames where there is no UFO, followed by the reporter showing a still shot of a cloud. Then...they mention 'rods', which are just insects.

Someone care to explain?

So crappy and not much to look at the FBI interrogated a guy for 10 hours over it, right? Do you see the disconnect in your logic here?

Could it be possible someone is lying, and the FBI never interrogated anyone over this footage? I'm thinking so.
Why would you and a few others claim the FBI interrogation didn't happen? NBC reported that it did indeed occur. Ah I see. MSM aren't to be trusted. Can't say I disagree

I think it's necessary to point out some things here in relation to the opening post.

This is a clip of a news broadcast from August 22, 2014 - NBC (KSN)


Is it really?

Then why does it not appear anywhere on the recent NBC News videos on : www.nbcnews.com...

Then we have the obvious conflict of dates on the web page linked to itself.



Why does it say "Jan 10 : A Kansas news photographer tells his story ................" ?

Well here's a strange coincidence. If you actually watch the whole video it refers to the video appearing in a "new" series called "Monsterquest".

According to Wiki that very episode first began to air on Jan 9th 2008. The day before the video date on NBC's website (although we do not see the year in that date)








Cameraman, Brandon Mallory, shot the footage in 2002. He says he didn't notice the object when filming, but when he went back to edit the video he just happened to pause it on one of the seven frames that it was in. His television station called the police who then notified the FBI. He then claims he was "hooked up to little wires" for hours and was submitted to a polygraph. The object in the film goes behind a cloud that is estimated to be 5,000 ft in the air.

Well I can't prove or disprove the FBI story but only the Youtube video appears to have been uploaded recently.

But as I said in my previous post just before the minute mark the presenter mentions that ..... "now years later the video is featured in a new History Channel series called "MonsterQuest".

Really? A new series? It ended in 2010.

In fact if you want to see it for yourself the "Monsterquest" edition is up on Youtube




The clip from our cameraman is shown around 18 seconds in.

However the ultimate conclusion is that digital camera frame rates are too slow (remember this was before the HD cameras we have now) to show fast moving bugs, bats and birds.

So I think the question has to be what were the motivations for the opening post?

I honestly thought this was a recent NBC news clip, but yes it seems MosterQuest is a old series, so it must be a old news clip. Still, my whole reason for posting it was because of the story. It was the first I had heard about this and I could not find it anywhere on ATS. So my motives were genuine curiosity concerning the FBI involvement that the cameraman claimed to have endured.

I love this thread...

There are actually members in this thread who think the reporter is lying about being interrogated by the FBI because they think that rods might be insects.

First off, deny ignorance to those of you who are saying rods are bugs or insects. Nobody is positive as to what they can be, and second off, you can't just say the guy's lying and this is a hoax of his.

Unless those of you who have said that have evidence, show it up. Otherwise, be quiet...

I had another account years ago. ATS use to not be about mocking, ridicule, and trolling. Old members were intelligent, polite and always brought both those qualities to the table.

It's true, not all rod UFOs are bugs. As far as the FBI claims go, I believe him. I've had CIA come to my house for less, so it's not so unbelievable for me to see that happening. The CIA came to me because of a similar situation. I don't want to go over it all, but the story is in my introduction. I don't judge so quickly now.

Please show us some credible research that proves this statement.

Similar situation? According to that thread, your (alleged) neighbor was a drunk CIA agent and they came to ask you about his drinking habits and if there was police activity/domestic disturbances. Oh, but you asked him if he believed in UFO's. I see. Comes off to me...well, like typical ATS garbage.

The whole 'rods' shenanigans is crap (in my opinion), and since it's so easy to reproduce the SAME EXACT IMAGES by filming bugs, I'm pretty confident that they are just that . Bugs. Now if those bugs were actually extraterrestrial, I couldn't tell you. But you see where I'm going with that.

As for the FBI interrogation mentioned in the OP, there are just too many glaringly obvious discrepancies in the whole thing and it sounds like sensationalized junk to get people talking.

The "object" is an insect.

ATS policy on "rods" related subjects, of which this is one, is the immediate move to the hoax forum.
