Consider this a PS to my first post.
I find it helps when attemtpting to ascertain the credibility of any given official story to explain unusual or news making events to remember these
three basic questions to determine truth from cover stories and CYA...with respect to UFO's and the like...
What is an exercise
What is a cover story
What is CYA
"Secret Military/Black Ops Exercise" using experimental or highly advanced super-secret technlogy, is prrobably the most frequent assumption..often
stated as bald fact, which tends to come from skeptics..non-believers in the whole UFO biz.
First of all..this is using a rumour to substantiate a rumour...i.e..a rumoured agency supposedly carrying out a hush hush operation using who knows
what....that's the evidence skeptics use to disbelieve the hard evidence before them. Incredible , isn't it?
Why do militaries carry out 'exercises'to begin with..what is the purpose of an exercise?
Well, there are 4 reasons ..
1. To test/train personnel in the use of new tactics or weaponry
2. To test weapons systems or tactics on objects or 'simulated' threats
3. To measure the reaction of ground forces/observers to the deployment of said weapons and tactics as a means of evaluating the psychological impact
and effect on morale or combat effectiveness
4. To evaluate overall readiness to defend against a known or projected threat using observed or predicted weapons and tactics...
Operations are only different from exercizes in that the threats , the ammunition and the dying is all real....and generally speaking 'operations
rarely go as well as most exercises...
So for our government, or any government to have carried out an exercise of any type over non-sovereign territory the exercise would have to be
justified by one or more of these 4 reasons.
Let's take the black triangles sighted over Belgium and Mexico and analyse the 'cover story'.
The Belgian Minister of Defense supported his pilots who gave a news conference to explain to the the thousands of citizens who witnessed these lights
their efforts to chase the objects down and the speeds and manouvres these objects got up to in evading them.
To believe this was some sort of Black ops 'exercise'would mean that against all protocol and in violation of several binding treaties and
conventions a Defense Minister of an allied [NATO] ally..in fact of the ally in which NATO has its headquarters, was not informed that Belgian
airspace was about to be violated, nor was any other member of his government notified that we were about to deliberately terrify major segments of
their population, as well as publicly defy the known laws of earthly physics and prove Einstein wrong... I say that to all the anti-gravity fans...
And by the way..get your physics right..it's not about defying gravity, its about phasing in and out of time/dimensional certainty...but I won't
bore you with that here...for those who are curious..go to
I've asked this on other threads but still await an anwer:
What possible military or national security consideration would justify the deployment of super-secret technology by super-secret agencies in a
super-secret operation over 'friendly' air-space in 1989 or 2004?
Cover stories are used to;
1 Hide the true intention or nature of an exercise from test subjects
2 Allay the fears of civilians , enemies and allies
3 Misdirect or misinform the media
The cover story is only effective when used prior to planned exercises /operations.
Any story issued AFTER the conclusion of the exercise is to be seen as an amendment of a cover story or in plainer text; classic CYA
CYA is what people in government and other senior positions everywhere and in all fields use to retroactively account for the 'unplanned'...and can
be most easily spotted when it contradicts previously issued 'official statements'
To be honest some of the CYA stories I've been reading on websites..and even here on ATS...are more implausible and have even less hard evidence
behind them than the idea that UFO's are flying our skies unchallenged...and yet the self-professed skeptics bray on asking us for hard evidence?
Show me the hard evidence of an American made anti-gravity machine..show me the hard evidence of TR-3B's..has nay 'skeptic seen one"NO....
but how many have seen black triangles?
Are they saying the Americans prefer to let the Belgians get a good look at what your tax dollars are buying for our super-gooks to play with ?
