With all the recent hullabaloo about the Pentagon's Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program (AATIP) and the DIA's claims that it hasn't released any information (after purging UFO files last year) - another agency with incredibly advanced satellite detection capabilities whose name has popped up quite a bit in UFO research over the years is the NRO or National Reconnaissance Office.

Anthony Bragalia's article below really does make some very interesting points about the organization, its capabilities and astronomical budget and I think it's fair to say that if any U.S. alphabet agency should know revelatory information about Unidentified Flying Objects then it's this one.

Also brought up is the history of secrecy surrounding the NRO, the subject of FOIA requests (they've never released a single document) and the erroneous claims made by the NRO's Gerald Haines (and CIA) last year that 'more than half of alleged UFO sightings in the US through the 1960s were actually of classified aircraft such as the U-2 and SR-71' (which are demonstrably false).

SECRET US INTELLIGENCE AGENCY HOLDS UFO ANSWERS





A US intelligence agency that denied its very existence for decades has likely already determined the true nature of the UFO phenomena, and has kept its discoveries from the public for over a half-century.

This agency has the ability to “see” anything anywhere at any time as it is happening - even outside of our atmosphere. They have detected airspace intrusions of all kinds – including most assuredly, those of Unidentified Flying Objects. The degree of precision with which they operate is so astounding -and the scope of their global coverage is so vast - that there is only one conclusion that can be drawn about this ultra-secret agency: If extraterrestrial craft have entered the Earth’s realm, they are aware of them and they have filmed them.

These images – and their accompanying technical analysis- have never been released to the public. The stunning reasons why this is so are now revealed - including those found in a USAF letter about UFOs from the 1970s. The letter (directed to this author) denied the existence of the agency in question and warned me away by threatening prosecution by federal authorities.

Now many years later, this author has again picked up on the trail to expose the deep UFO secrets of the most secret organization in the world- the National Reconnaissance Office.

THE AGENCY THAT DARE NOT SPEAK ITS NAME


Though it has been active for over 50 years, the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) was only officially acknowledged about 15 years ago. Before this acknowledgement, its employees could be imprisoned or even put to death under the Espionage Act if they were to reveal its name or even its mere existence. Since 1961 the NRO has quietly employed tens of thousands of people and it has spent hundreds of billions of dollars.

Officially part of the US Department of Defense, its stated mission is to design, build, operate and maintain global spy satellites and to control and to collect the information and images that are gathered from them. It tracks and monitors all traffic entering and leaving the Earth’s atmosphere. The agency secretly constructs and launches these ultra-advanced satellites in cooperation with NASA. The NRO also maintains a planetary-wide network of ground stations which process and analyze signals, photos and filmed images.

The NRO, headquartered in Chantilly, VA, has a waiver for “open competition” requirements. This means that the agency does not need to comply with the US government contracting laws that apply to all other federal departments and agencies. Contractors and vendors do not compete for business with the NRO. The NRO uses who they want. It is not obligated to advertise its requirements or to make Requests for Proposals.

Only recently was it compelled by a lawsuit to make its budget available to the public - but only the “unclassified” portions of the agency’s budget. This means that the financial expenditures for most all of the activities and departments of the NRO will never be known. The Washington Post in September 1995 reported that the NRO appears to have a multi-billion dollar budget and that billions per year were being hoarded by the agency as “unspent funds” of which the Pentagon and the Congress were never made aware. The Directors of the NRO are named without confirmation by Congress by the US Secretary of Defense. And the agency is worrisomely independent. Though it is chartered to collaborate with other select agencies and departments, the NRO often refuses to share gathered intelligence or technological breakthroughs with the larger US defense and intelligence communities. Simply put, the NRO does not play by anyone’s rules but it’s own.

It is believed that the prime contractors to the NRO are Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Orbital Sciences Corporation. Engineers at these companies working on NRO projects of any kind must attain Top Secret/SCI (Sensitive Compartmented Information) security clearance, a process often taking years. They are made to take polygraphs routinely and without notice. Many NRO employees work under Draconian conditions. This often includes working in underground windowless offices; being scanned regularly (including full-body and retinal scanning) and surrendering all cell phones, personal technology and writing instruments. Often NRO employees require escort when moving through offices. They work alongside individuals whose actual names are sometimes unknown to them and with whom they are never to discuss anything personal or work-related. For decades (until the US Government acknowledged its existence in late 1992) the people employed by the NRO were unable to say precisely for whom they worked or what they did, not even to their wives or children. IRS records would only reflect their employment as being with the “Department of Defense.” NRO employees became “indentured” forever to the intelligence/defense communities. They were unable to mention their employment by the NRO or their experience attained there. Because of this, they could only work for other similar agencies such as NSA or theCIA or their associated contractors.

The satellite technology that is designed and maintained by the NRO is so technologically extraordinary that it is believed that the agency can “see” any selected human, ground or airborne “target” that it wishes to observe. With literal pinpoint accuracy (and with astonishing clarity and resolution) it can image anything that is visible on the planet or that is coming to or leaving the Earth, as it occurs. It is able to detect signals of all kinds that are generated anywhere on Earth or its orbit. Wholly unacknowledged – but accepted by industry insiders - is that some of the NRO’s satellites are also equipped with experimental “beam” weaponry with offense and defense applications.

The full capabilities of such super-satellites are not acknowledged by the US government. Even NRO satellite’s numbers and names are generally classified. The NRO occasionally will announce when a new satellite goes into orbit - though it is not obligated to do so, and no substantial details are ever given about such launches. It is known through defense industry insiders that the capabilities and technical sophistication of these satellites far exceeds those of commercial satellites. It is said that NRO technology provides constant real-time data, surveillance and reconnaissance about everything around the world all of the time. Resulting reconnaissance photos and films are said to be of remarkably high quality and imaged in extraordinarily fine detail. New information indicates that this technology may even be able to detect ‘signatures’ and image objects and people through walls and enclosures.

Through its many decades of being our “secret eyes in space” it is inconceivable that the NRO has not had several incidents of detection of “uncorrelated observations.” In fact, this is one of the NRO’s very missions: to detect, image and identify unidentifieds in the air and atmosphere!

The agency is unquestionably the one arm of government that is the most uniquely positioned to possess close-up images of UFOs in airspace or in orbit - or that have perhaps even landed. Objects that are unidentified have surely been encountered buzzing our skies - or upon entering or leaving the atmosphere - on innumerable occasions. And they may have even spotted landings. More than that - given the advanced optics systems onboard these satellites - these UFOs have to have been filmed by NRO and later analyzed by ground station photographic experts. The NRO has acknowledged recently that its first orbiting satellite (called Corona) alone collected more than 800,000 images. With the dozens of such satellites rumored now in orbit, the sheer volume of images captured by the NRO must be in the multiple millions.

THE GOVERNMENT’S THREATENING “LETTER OF LIES” ABOUT UFOs AND THE NRO

On December 27, 1974 (as a young pre-teen admittedly obsessed with UFOs) I sent a registered letter to the then President of the United States, Gerald Ford. I had several questions that I wished answered relative to UFOs and any associated military and intelligence studies and what the precise nature was of an agency with which I had become familiar. That agency, I had learned, was called the “NRO” or the “National Reconnaissance Office.”

Though in the 1970s the NRO was not officially or publicly acknowledged, I had become aware of its name through a very brief (and perhaps slipped) mention of it that was made in an obscure publication circulating at the time. A UFO researcher had mentioned the NRO in an article that appeared in a UFO magazine in 1973 or 1974. I am entirely uncertain how the writer knew of this agency at that time. In fact, he may well have been the very first private individual to have ever named the agency in print.

My request of President Ford for UFO information was routed to the US Air Force. My letter was received (and presumably read) by White House staffers first though, as the registered return receipt was signed by the White House and they would have to have read it to know to whom to route it. My mention of the NRO agency was prominently placed at the beginning of the letter and it is likely that White House staffers read the name of the agency in my communication. On January 6, 1975 a reply came from Colonel James J. Shepard of the USAF. He begins the letter, “On behalf of President Ford, I am acknowledging your recent letter to him and placing the matter in the hands of appropriate officials for their careful consideration. You will receive a further reply as soon as possible.”

On January 23, 1975, a “further reply” was received. This time the letter’s author was Colonel M.L. Sorrentino of the USAF. He states, in part, “On behalf of President Ford, this is in further reply to your December 27 letter regarding the investigation of UFOs.” He continues (after having indicated that such UFO study terminated with Project Blue Book) that:

“Moreover, officials are unaware of any federally-sponsored studies regarding UFO phenomena, and have no knowledge of the existence of a ‘National Reconnaissance Office.’”

Sorrentino then continues by citing JANAP 146, an official Joint Army, Navy Air Publication (JANAP) for providing procedures for reporting unexplained aerial activity by military personnel. Sorrentino then warns me:

“Due to the strictly military nature of these matters, both JANAP-146, as well as the reports which it prescribes, must remain with official channels. Therefore, Chapter 37, Title 18 of the United States Code stipulates that any person who makes an unauthorized transmission or disclosure of such a report is liable to prosecution.“

Given that I had mentioned the name of an unacknowledged Intelligence Agency (the NRO) in a letter to the President of the United States, and that I had inquired about its possible detection and filming of UFOs by its satellites, Sorrentino’s admonishment to me was clear. It can be taken that they were concerned that I may at some point say something publicly about the NRO or about its military/intel UFO reports. It could have been taken as a threat. I can tell you that as a young boy at the time, it was indeed.

I have never mentioned this episode to anyone ever, until now. And until now, I have never told this: After I wrote to the President mentioning the NRO and UFOs, I believe that our family’s home phone was tapped and that I was followed for a period of months by unknown persons.

There can be little doubt that the US Air Force deliberately lied to me and deceived me about their knowledge of the NRO. This is because today, on the NRO’s own website, it acknowledges that over its history it has worked closely with the military (including the USAF) in providing valuable intelligence. And of course both the USAF and the NRO are part of the Department of Defense. The distinct implication is that if government officials were lying to me by denying the very existence of a federal agency of which they were actually well aware, they were also likely openly lying about the claim that no official UFO studies were ever conducted after Project Blue Book.

THE ONE AND ONLY TIME THE NRO SPOKE OF UFOS

The single instance that anyone associated with the agency has ever publicly spoken about the subject of UFOs was in 1997. Gerald K. Haines was employed by the NRO when he released an article that was published in the journal Studies in Intelligence that was entitled “A Die Hard Issue: CIA’s Study of UFOS, 1947-90.”

Prior, however, Haines has been associated with the Central Intelligence Agency and his treatise relates to the CIA’s activities surrounding UFOs, not the NRO’s dealings with the phenomenon. It remains unclear why a present-day NRO employee would be authoring and releasing another intelligence agency’s UFO information. It is also unclear whether the NRO authorized this release and whether it agreed with the conclusions that were reached by its employee Haines.

In his whitewash report, he determined that although the CIA was concerned about UFOs until the early 1950s, it has since “paid only limited and peripheral attention to the phenomena.” Second, he maintained that “more than half” of alleged UFO sightings in the US through the 1960s were actually of classified aircraft such as the U-2 and SR-71. Haines’ statements are disingenuous. And they not coincidentally coincide with the USAF’s debunking Roswell Report. If what Haines said is correct, he is himself revealing a state secret that he should not be. He is “blowing the cover” of a “technique” that lets people believe that they are seeing UFOs, when in fact they are seeing experimental US aircraft.

And Haines is deliberately lying with claims about the U-2 and SR-71 being the cause for most all UFO sightings. Such experimental craft are extremely restricted in just where they can fly. Such vehicles are rarely if ever flown along commercial flight paths- or low over dense civilian populations. The reason for this are obvious - it would compromise classified technology. And Haines fails to mention that the US Government was examining the UFO phenomenon (i.e. ghost rockets and foo-fighters) as early as 1944 - well before the advent of such jets.

Due to his rich background in US Intelligence, Dr. Haines was not asked by journalists why he –as an NRO employee by then - was speaking out about the CIA and UFOs. But what is curious is why these journalists (Haines’ report was widely carried in the press) did not ask him about his current agency (the NRO) and their involvement the phenomena? If the CIA studies UFOs, didn’t the NRO? Why did they not inquire of him if his agency’s super-satellites have ever detected signals from UFOS or if they had ever photographed or filmed UFOs? In one move, Haines had minimized the CIA’s interest in UFOs and at the same time had deflected any interest or inquiry about the NRO’s own UFO involvement.


EXPOSING THE NRO’S UFO SECRETS

Strictly speaking, the NRO is not exempt from FOIA or the Freedom of Information Act. The reality however is that the agency routinely denies FOIA requests of all kinds by indicating that to honor such requests would reveal confidential or sensitive “sources and methods” that would place national security at risk. An organization that does not acknowledge its budget, contractors or mission details (and that did not even admit it’s very existence for decades) is an organization that has surely developed strategies to counter FOIA requests that it deems “troublesome.” Adding further difficulty to FOIA requests to the NRO is that one needs to have appropriate and adequate “identifiers” to make such a request. Without details such as reference numbers, launch names or dates of occurrences, it is very hard to pinpoint specific documents and images to request for public release.

It is also even very difficult to gain information on prior FOIA requests to the NRO on UFOs. It is evident that very few researchers have ever attempted such requests, in part due to the fact that they are not even aware of the agency’s existence! The “Black Vault” (an online repository of FOIA-related and other government documents on UFOs and other phenomena) has no records of such FOIA requests to the NRO. Researcher Timothy Good complained in one of his books that he “drew a blank” when it came to the NRO and UFOs- no information was obtainable. This author has conducted an in-depth review of FOIA Case Logs online (and on the NRO website) to see if anyone has ever requested UFO-related information from the NRO. It appears that only twice this has been done. The first request was made on May 7, 1998 and another time was on April 27, 2001. The responses from the NRO to these requestors is unknown. No information appears to have ever been forthcoming In subsequent years about any results from these requests that may have provided answers to questions about the NRO’s involvement with the UFO phenomenon.

This author is implementing a three-pronged approach to coax information on the NRO and UFOs:

I have teamed with preeminent, long-time UFO researcher Larry Bryant on this matter. Mr. Bryant is widely acknowledged to be the UFO community’s expert on constructing and submitting FOIA requests. We are currently working on the appropriate terminology –and with the specificity required- to make an effective FOIA request.

Additionally, Mr. Bryant will be running “whistleblower solicitation ads” to induce former NRO employees or contractors to confidentially come forward with any relevant information on the agency’s dealings with UFOs.

Additionally, Mr. Bryant will be running “whistleblower solicitation ads” to induce former NRO employees or contractors to confidentially come forward with any relevant information on the agency’s dealings with UFOs.

Finally, this author has made the recent acquaintance of a former agency employee now retired and living nearby in Florida in ill health. This intelligence officer has tacitly indicated that clear, detailed and revealing images of Unidentified Flying Objects have indeed been obtained by the super-satellites of the NRO - and that many of them are not made by man.

More information is hoped to be forthcoming soon about this most covert and cryptic intelligence agency - and it’s no doubt astounding UFO secrets.

Also a very relevant quote made by John F. Schuessler about satellite tracking capability.







"The curves are all swinging upward fairly rapidly. So we look at what we know about the technology we are using for surveillance, just the USA, not other countries, what we do and what we know and the kind of surveillance we can do. There is no doubt in my mind that today if not many times over the past fifty years we have had the surveillance capabilities to completely monitor the activities of certain UFO flights –and know exactly when they’re going, where they’re going, how they’re going, where they appear form and leave to, all the characteristics about them – we have radar based devices that will not only show the distance, direction and azimuth of an object and all that but will also how shape. We have devices the army has developed for tracking projectiles – they check the acoustic wave and when something crosses over they can immediately track that data and go back to the source. That’s how they track where a mortar is or a howitzer. We can use that same technology – and its portable – for tracking UFOs.

I don’t believe any of these things fly over our country today without being known and if somebody wanted the UFO mystery to completely disappear they could in five minutes release enough data to show exactly what’s going on and is not going on."

An Interview with John F. Schuessler, Executive Director of MUFON (Mutual UFO Network)




And an interesting one from NATO's Yves Sillard.






“I think that the Americans practice on the subject much higher efforts of investigation than those of any other country, they practice a deliberated policy and had deliberately orchestrated misinformation. It is total misinformation. What for? Is it the fear to see their supremacy challenged if one day they face a much more advanced external civilization? Is it their concern of keeping potential technological assets to themselves? Or . . . or any other explanation, who knows?”

GEIPAN Director Yves Sillard, former Assistant Secretary General for Environmental and Scientific Affairs for NATO

They can see what their birds are looking at.

Not really. I knew about the NRO when I was in my early teens (lived in the area). They didn't have a "Welcome" sign in the driveway, and people who worked there didn't broadcast their status, but it's right next to two major roadways in Chantilly. It was more of an "open secret" rather than some "we'll kill you if you talk" situation. The military personnel that worked/work there couldn't exactly hide "National Reconnaissance Office" on their orders and personnel files. To put a point on it, the NRO was "outed" in the 70s and then again in the 80s. You weren't going to get whacked for that.


Though it is chartered to collaborate with other select agencies and departments, the NRO often refuses to share gathered intelligence


Not really, since a lot of the time they're looking for things other agencies have asked them to look for.


It is believed that the prime contractors to the NRO are Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Orbital Sciences Corporation.


Among others.

As is pretty much anybody with a TS/SCI.


Many NRO employees work under Draconian conditions. This often includes working in underground windowless offices; being scanned regularly (including full-body and retinal scanning) and surrendering all cell phones, personal technology and writing instruments. Often NRO employees require escort when moving through offices.


Not really. Most of it is above ground, and you can see from the pictures most of it is glass. And the food in the cafeteria is pretty stellar. Scanning? Yea, there's lots of different kinds of sensors. Surrendering cell phones, tech, and writing instruments? Well yea if you work where there's classified materials, you're not allowed to bring in anything that can take a picture of it or record it. Surrendering writing instruments? Yea that's a no, actually.

Aside from that, it's an entertaining article at least. I don't claim to know the full capabilities present in the NRO's toolbox, but there's at least a few inaccuracies in the article that I presume are in there to spice it up.

A good read and reminds of GCHQ here in the UK. When something like this is kept in the "shadows" lots of murky myths are born surrounding it and I honestly think that these are allowed to spread to help dispel any truths that do leak. I once worked at a place with an older gentleman who had worked at GCHQ in his youth, the only thing he ever said about what he did there, was "listen" and that was after many years of knowing him.

Thanks for the replies and I could be wrong Jaellma but I don't think DARPA have ever released any UFO documentation (just like the NRO and US Navy) so I'd look forward to that.

Have always remembered this statement made by Jacques Vallee when it comes to the topic of covert government UFO investigation and when it comes to UFO evidence going conveniently 'missing' then there are also a great many examples.



"Governments took notice, organizing task forces, encouraging secret briefings and study groups, funding classified research and all the time denying before the public that any of the phenomena might be real. The major revelation of these Diaries may be the demonstration of how the scientific community was misled by the government, how the best data were kept hidden, and how the public record was shamelessly manipulated."

Dr. Jacques Vallee, astrophysicist, computer scientist 1992



Doesn't just happen in the states either and below is Dr. Anthony Choy (founder of OIFAA) explaining how in 2004 their computers containing classified UFO records were all stolen



“It is well known that there are classified documents that are hidden and Anthony Choy confirms it, however he regretted the theft of important material in 2004. "All had been stolen, then I understood that it was all a fraud, or that formed an office as a sort of screen to the public but at another level we were investigating, we were there".

Hopefully one day congressional investigations into just what information organizations like the NRO and DIA are holding on the subject will actually occur - really am not holding my breath though.



Statements made by members of U.S. Congress in relation to the UFO subject and congressional investigations.


STATEMENTS BY MEMBERS OF CONGRESS[

Congressman J. Edward Roush (Who conducted July 29 hearings or symposium):
"I am recommending that we launch a congressional investigation into the matter of UFOs. To these hearings I would urge that we invite all those individuals and organizations in the United States and abroad, which have made serious efforts to study the subject. We need such a scientific review in order to direct our efforts in the future. The American people have the right to ex-pect this from us. (Congressional Record, April 30)." "I have written the Comptroller General of the United States asking for an immediate investigation of the incidents involving the use of public moneys at the University of Colorado... I am convinced that the reasonable approach, the scientific approach is to main-tain an open mind on the matter until some real evidence appears, one way or the other. We have not had that as yet. I was hopeful that the Colorado project would provide just this evidence, or leadings for the future. Now I have my doubts." (Congressional Record, May 1).


Congressman William F. Ryan, Science & Astronautics Com-mittee (to NICAP):
"I share your belief that action should be taken. I have written to the Chairmen of both the Science and Astronautics Committee and the House Committee on Armed Services proposing that a thorough investigation be made on the Congressional level."


Congressman Lionel Van Deerlin:
"I cannot share the smug com-placency of the disbelievers, who automatically assume that every sighting must either be a hoax or hallucination. . . A thorough hearing should put the entire problem in some perspective, and perhaps even permit the congressmen to make some qualified judgments about the true nature of these objects."


Congressman Louis C. Wyman: (Congressional Record, October 11):
"It seems to me that the Congress would be well advised to investigate this subject. Unless there are compelling security reasons to the contrary, I believe the time has come to subject the whole panoply of unidentified flying objects to cross-examination under oath so that we may have a record of reference with more than usual credibility."


Congressman Gerald Ford, House Minority Leader:
"Thank you (a constituent) for your recent communication endorsing my proposal that Congress investigate the rash of reported sightings of unidentified flying objects in southern Michigan and in other parts of the country... I am aware of other reports such as The UFO Evidence which pose questions that, like the most recent sightings, cannot be answered by a few `pat' solutions."


Congressman Fred B. Rooney:
"This is a subject of increasing interest throughout the world, and I am pleased to see that legitimate efforts are being made to thoroughly investigate the situation."


Senator Everett M. Dirksen:
"I may have occasion to resume my explorations of the matter but I note from the number of persons in House and Senate who have made reports on the matter that this rather solid body of opinion may continue to push for a broader investigation."


Congressman Melvin R. Laird:
"I read the UFO Investigator [copy sent by constituent] with interest and want you to know that as a member of the Defense Appropriations Committee, we have dis-cussed this problem with the Air Force on several occasions in the past. I intend to discuss this matter at greater length with Air Force officials as this session of Congress progresses."


Congressman Richard S. Schweiker. Armed Services Committee (to a constituent):
"Thank you for your letter of July 29 inform-ing me of your support of a congressional inquiry. into the matter of unidentified flying objects... You will be pleased to learn that I would support such an inquiry."


Congressman Roman C. Pucinski (Congressional Record, August 9):
"Mr. Speaker, the Chicago Sun-Times, in an editorial of August 8, has performed a most creditable public service by calling attention to the fact that unidentified flying objects are a serious business. I believe the article. . . should be added to the present dialogue on this very important subject and I am taking the liberty today of including it in the Congressional Record."


Congressman Alvert H. Quie (To a constituent):
"Thank you for your letter of May 27. From all evidence that I have seen, there must be flying saucers. In regard to your second question, I certainly would support Congressional hearings concerning UFO."


Congressman Bob Wilson (Armed Services Committee, CIA Sub-committee):
"We have checked into the possibility of gaining enough support to initiate Congressional hearings for clarification of the UFO problem. Regretfully, we find there is very little interest in holding such hearings. Should increased interest develop on this subject, you can be assured I will be back in touch with you."

Vallee in Forbidden Science 3 discusses the NRO running some kind of honeypot operation with a 'pet' contactee - Valerie Ransome (sp?). This is the woman who supposedly predicted the Challenger accident.

Wish I could provide more info.
