For clarity: When the first NYT article came out I was very excited. Over the course of the next few weeks that shifted to feeling bitter and jaded as
the story was essentially ignored by non UFO obsessed general public and the focus once again became how this was likely another intelligence agency
psy-op or disinformation campaign. Its frustrating to speculate about breakaway civilizations or what the IC has up its sleeves with no change for so
I've been interested in this subject for 40 or so years, ever since I saw a totally silent craft fly very slowly over the top of some trees in my
back yard when I was about 10 years old. I didn't even bother telling people about it until I was in my 20s because I figured no one would believe me.
But I did start reading about the subject and learning about how deep of a rabbit hole it is.
As I am sure many of you feel, we've been fed so much mis and disinformation, seen so many bunk stories, its hard to trust pretty much any video or
eyewitness account. We all want the truth. I suppose we end up being pretty good skeptics because all of the bull**** has simply been laid on too
think for too long to not raise an eyebrow when something new pops up.
Anyhow... just wanting to give a little backdrop to where I am coming from when it comes to UFO/UAP in the news.
I just listened to a Peter Levenda interview (first time really checking out his side of the "story") and was for the most part sort of bored with
lots of the same information I've already heard from Elizondo, Mellon etc. For those who don't know who Levenda is, he helped Tom Delonge write Sekret
Machines (he probably wrote the whole thing as he is the author of several books, mostly about esoteric Nazi history) and Tom probably isn't used to
I wasn't necessarily impressed with Levendas perspective on the subject, but there was something about the way he defended Delonge, Elizondo and the
rest of the aviary involved that got me thinking. At first I wasn't sure how he could defend the Go Fast video. People with much more technical
backgrounds than mine are able to determine the phenomenons speed, altitude and are simply writing it off as a bird. Why can't this group of people
from the alphabet soup agencies, who have decades of security clearances and experience, provide us with something that is incontrovertible evidence?
Is that really a bird? Could you not figure this out with your multi trillion dollar war machine?
But... it also got me thinking:
I heard this quote a couple times during interviews and on ATS recently: people are saying that these stories in the NYT/WaPo etc aren't really there
for us long time students of Ufology and the ATS crowd.
I think this might be the KEY to what their intent is.
Also keep in mind they never discuss "aliens" or bring them up themselves... they might field a question about the possibility, but in general avoid
the subject every time they go on record.
Perhaps its really as simple as this: The whole TTSA crew are believers and are simply trying to pressure the government to invest more time and money
in to the subject as well as release whatever data it can to the public. You might be thinking, they had top security clearances, they've most likely
seen far more than we have! They would face more laughter if they claimed "aliens"... so they avoid it.
They have also (especially for this phase 2 of their media blitz) been harping on the fact that the phenomenon is mostly ignored and filed away
without any clear answers to what it is. None of the guys involved can really discuss what they've seen or offer more videos or documents if they've
been filed top secret without subjecting themselves to arrest. Elizondo claims to have quit due to the lack of interest and acts clearly frustrated
They essentially may be like most us: sick and tired of not knowing the whole story, wanting to pressure the government to provide more funding and
thus more answers to all of our questions. It could really be as simple as that... they are wanting to bang the drum a little louder and hopefully get
enough people to demand answers that the DOD finally has to do something.
I could be wrong... it could still be some lame rehashed psy-op to make us all look like idiots, but it could also be as simple as they are trying to
get this ball rolling and will be dropping info until it garners the attention we all know it deserves.
Thoughts from the ATS crew?
