My introduction to ATS was through the "Chad" UFO controversy
. It began with the
posting of several curious pictures to the popular website for the popular late night radio talk show Coast To Coast AM with George Noory
Then it grew as sightings and reports of similar, yet more complex, craft began to
. Which has so far culminated in reports from an "Isaac"
supposedly has first hand knowledge of the genesis, architecture, and manufacture of these intriguing crafts and associated technology. Without
getting into details, the three previous links will provide plenty, I have just one question to ask. Before I do that I'd like to bring up a couple
of points of general contention that this issue has aroused.
First point of contention: There seems to be three camps surrounding the issues that were initially propagated by "Chad" and "Isaac". Those that
are undecided if the craft and technology depicted in the images are real. Those that believe that the craft and technology depicted in the images
are real. Those that believe that the craft and technology depicted in the images are not real, and are the result of modern computer generated
imaging (CGI) technology such as Maya, 3DMax, Lightwave, and digital imaging enhancement software such as Photoshop. Second point of Contention:
That whether real or hoax, we, the general public, are being conditioned as the result of a government or privately funded experiment.
None of these issues have been conclusively resolved here at ATS. But this week there was the tantalizing video footage of, at least, two
UFO's in Haiti
that was posted to YouTube. This latest tale has been labeled
definitively as a hoax here ATS. It appears the result of CGI technology. It seems that those who are taking the time to create such footage are
getting better and better at it all the time. That the footage of the UFOs over Haiti is remarkable, it is also rather remarkable that the story
didn't live more than a week before being labeled a hoax, unlike the "Chad" and "Isaac" controversies which are still ongoing.
To take a couple of steps backward in order to go forward, it is well known that Britain has become a
partly through the use of unprecedented numbers of CCTV cameras
that have been deployed throughout the country. Reportedly 4.2 million CCTV cameras, about 1 for every 14 people, are being used to monitor the
British population. Most recently China is reportedly enacting
a high-tech plan to track its people
. China will use CCTVs and facial recognition software to keep track of its population in major cities.
There are, of course, millions of CCTV camera's in use here in the United States. New York City is the
CCTV poster child even though a
dealing specifically with deploying CCTV cameras in NYC began as early as 1998.
Lately the government of NYC is notable for its proposal to limit
public filming and
