** Do you believe anyone in an official capacity knows anything about the true nature of UFOs?
Maybe not the "true nature", but yes they absolutely know about them, because they decided to shut down something that has continued to evolve since
the UK shutdown on the subject that Pope was involved with. Remember they actively said "we believe there is no significance to UFO reports" or words
to that effect. Certainly ranking military or air force officials know too well about the "foo-fighter" phenomena which is prevalent here in the UK.
You don't actually have to go high into the ranks of any agency here in the UK, police, army, air force - to find someone with an encounter, or have
had encounters told to them by their colleagues. It's everywhere and yet nowhere at the same time. If there's anything to the American "football pitch
sized" UFOs I'd imagine that information is shared in some capacity between the UK and USA. I doubt very much they have the answers, unless we want to
go down the Roswell rabbit hole. But very much a tangible phenomena exists here in the UK at least.
Nick Pope was USED by the MoD. Maybe that's a better approach to this than "Nick Pope is X". They used him. They decided enough was enough, and off he
went. In a pretty, or exceedingly short span of human history, you may recall first they shut down the scientific satellites and handed them over to
military control (and there's no doubt in my mind these satellites were, would have been and still are front line access to evidence of the
foo-fighter/fast walker phenomena), then the UK declared "there's nothing to the phenomena" and then they released documents - one perhaps legit
worthy case for 1000 red herrings. They know.
And in theory, Nick Pope should know they know. I can't believe he is or at least ACTS naive to
this fact. They #ing know. Foo fighters have been around since at least WW2, in UK, in Russia, in other countries no doubt. I see foo fighters. Other
people on this board see them, call them what you will. They don't seem like things you can just go out and catch, but they do seem within reach of
some research. They are being researched, only the conclusions probably aren't too far off what all of us can conclude .... lights in the sky ... that
we can't catch very easily if at all.
Maybe if you go up the chain it really is just a singular Smoking Man at the top, and he's the only one that knows. But someone in the chain of
command knows. Probably a bunch of them. HM the Queen conducted a Royal investigation into crop circles in Wiltshire... They're probably privy to some
part of it also, though that stuff is a bit too historical for my focus/interest so I don't know too much about it, only that it took place.
** Do you think anybody within an official capacity has the legal right to divulge such information?
Well, a lot of them seem to do it on their death bed. So yes when they're not in active service I believe they get that right at least after time, in
Nick's case that'd be 12 years. In active service no, but we must also remember they do not class this stuff as a security threat here in the UK
anymore, so what exactly ARE they protecting by not divulging it? With Pope its tricky cos that's sort of assuming the worker in MacDonalds drive-thru
Paris is part of the same chain of the corporate HQ in Los Angeles (or wherever). Maybe he was put under more extreme agreements than other staff,
maybe they were all under an intense one, I don't really know. But he's free of that now. he's a journalist for christs sake, remember when
journalists used to do exposés? And use their journalistic prowess to uncover truths? Pope needs to ditch his allegiance to the MoD or whomever it
is. Or I suppose we can sit around for 30 years waiting for another death bed statement.
** NDA's (None Disclosure Agreements) are a very real thing, nobody in their right mind will literally throw their life away to out the truth and in
my own opinion I doubt that anyone with such information could or even truthfully share such knowledge without a bit of doubt about the accuracy of
Can't imagine that NDA extends over 12 years since leaving their employ. And when you think about it, there are actually a whole bunch of military
generals and such IN active service that would talk about it all quite openly at the time. Again like mentioned before the official standpoint is
"there's nothing to it" so NDA or no surely if you want to be revered as a decent investigative journalist then he of all people has like, a front row
ticket? But still, "Don't divulge secrets" ... but those that would have said that have since said "there are no secrets", so surely he can just
divulge anything and everything? lol
Thanks for the interesting questions though! I see what you're getting at and your favouring of Nick Pope to not favouring. There needs to be balance,
a voice here, a voice there, an opinion here and a differing one there. That's all good, if it keeps the flames fanned so be it. For me, the "fill in
the blanks" sheet just isn't that full yet. Nick Pope is one of the tv celeb ufo people that I have tried to see eye to eye with but feel there are
some big gaps along the way with his understanding of the phenomena and sure as you point out, his general approach to his FORMER employer... like...
# 'em dude.... that was 12 years ago!! Spill the beans, if he has none to spill, then he was never really a part of the real stuff, because they
"used" him most likely. I applaud anyone who can make such an admission, it takes some courage. For my understanding UFOlogy becomes clearer over
time, and all I'm saying is that in that, his role diminishes, because his viewpoint is either naive, he was used and no-one will speculate or even
hypothesize that fact (and think how much people dote over US gov. hiding all the facts)... so yeah. Stuff, bytes not worth the space they're written
Has he had a sighting? Apparently not. Therefore I only mildly value his opinion on the subject same as anyone else. You can read a billion reports
but you can never get that true understanding of the scale of the issue until you have a sighting, or two, or five. Call me cold, but you know, I've
never seen a snow leopard so I don't go round talking about snow leopards. If someone tells me they've seen a snow leopard I don't then go onto tell
other people about that like I'm some kind of expert. That'd be the Nick Pope effect LOLZ
