If it were only sloppy coverage of a horribly beaten horse corpse this entire ridiculous saga would be easy to dismiss.
But, I can't shake the feeling that there is so much more to this... cycle? of popularity and the ease with which the current interest has been
It's all been too easy at every step - in the "real" world if a has-been sorta-was musician launches a rehashed hash casserole to an empty auditorium
in a city still reeling from a literal massacre this thread simply wouldn't exist. There would be no discussion because there would be no TTSA.
Yet in spite of an insipid rollout that felt more like a bad SNL skit (yeah, redundant, I know) than an introduction to one of the most important
subjects ever tabled by H. Sapiens, TTSA managed to survive its own stillbirth. Even tripping over mylar alien scout ships while still half in the
gate did nothing to deter endorsements from "legitimate" media outlets. Some even included the shiny stumbling block in their coverage without so much
as a knowing smirk.
TV, print media, talk show hosts of all stripe and draw plugged the dawning of a new age of open unbiased research into a subject as controversial and
polarizing as it is epoch-making. And our shepherd for this supreme endeavor? Why TDL, of course, and his hip new consortium of ex-spooks and
Strangeloves. And the government's contribution doesn't end with staffing, Uncle Sam is right out in front, hand-in-hand with TommyD skipping into
Grainy footage depicts vague blobs of unknown origin performing vague maneuvers for unknown purposes. But, defense officials are clear and certain in
their validation of said footage. Without hesitation or ambiguity we are told the video is absolutely authentic - the object depicted is genuinely
unknown. Or, as auto-translated by the obscure internal need of some: United States military confirms that extraterrestrial craft are very real, very
advanced and very threatening. But, very vulnerable to cash. Money is kryptonite so allocate accordingly. TTSA groupies laugh victoriously and flash
middle fingers at all who dare use question marks.
Far out in the Atlantic, candy breaks the bonds of physics and, though a bit confused, it manages to aggressively humiliate the best pilots and
equipment the American Navy can field in our protection. The ensuing dogfight is then passionately recounted in numerous interviews by respected
readers/writers of all mediums. Repetition is packaged as authenticity but even a passing observation reveals more than a few... inconsistencies...
between the varied accounts. Four pairs of highly trained Mk. 1 eyeballs, we are told, all observed the same event and reached the same conclusion.
Are we to believe that these elite eyes all failed to properly process a single shared incident? Preposterous!
Maybe so, but that's apparently what happened in this case. Instead of account synchronicity, we're given locations that differ by hundreds of miles,
times that bounce from zone to zone without rhyme or reason, contradictions in maneuvers and speed of both jet and candy, and even evidence of a pilot
falling prey to distorted visual perceptions common to flight - in spite of advanced training and skills. It's so easy to forget the single, most
important trait shared by every person involved on that unusual day: they were all human.
Still, the event does have merit in that the Navy has verified key elements of the event. It has acknowledged, on record, that on the day in question
its pilots reported an unidentified airborne object in the vicinity of a disturbance on the ocean's surface. Somehow, somewhere along leaky lines and
blurry memories, that simple statement morphed into a squadron of large radar-bouncing blips and telepathic candy that flew at bullet speeds while
trailing vestigial limbs. Ergo: ALIENS ARE REAL AND THEY TAUNTED OUR NAVY PILOTS!! As seen on Fox News so it must be true.
I suppose the whole thing could merely be an IC operation to recruit, mold and otherwise warp young hearts and minds for some future purpose
unfathomable to the sane and sound. If so, then TTSA and the ET Glasnost have little thought and less use for us ancient folk, mid-life and up. In
fact, we barely exist in such generation spanning operations, since we will no longer be factors in the field come that distant D-Day. So today, we're
just shadows. Loud, aggravating shadows...
Whatever the case, I would bet a vital organ that there is an agenda in play. TDL, TTSA, MIC, etc., and the matter of UFO/UAP are irretrievably
intertwined but I'm simply not smart enough to grasp a clearer picture.
