growing amount of evidence that UFOs may be man made for the military. All I want is the truth be it aliens or man made.
Ever consider that "Project Blue Beam" is a bunch of disinformation?
It's a classic counter-intelligence move. You make the opposition expect to receive something and they begin reading into events - spending
potentially thousands of man-hours on the equivalent of a wild goose chase. You have intel people pulling their hair out and going bonkers trying to
"connect the dots" when the dots don't really exist to begin with.
Not saying that UFOs don't exist - nor saying that our government is concealing their presence. But I have a problem with the whole "theyz doin it
to #rul the werld man!" approach.
The government knows that groups exist that will be against all government decisions and actions, regardless of what decisions are made. They aren't
stupid, and while many want more power - they realize there are practical limits. Elaborate plans of deception have failed so miserably through
history that it's ridiculous - especially when it involves entire nations.
If you really want to know what's happened, it's likely one of two possible scenarios:
First (and my personal favorite) the U.S. funded research and investigation into UFO phenomena and an agency was specifically created to study any
recovered artifacts and manage any communications. The agency would likely have been a "restricted access" program that was likely unknown to
Congress and the President. Defense budget cuts in the late 80s and early 90s starved this agency out of existence, and most personnel knowing of it
were displaced. The agency would likely live on as a paramilitary effort and/or a loose network of individuals.
Essentially - it was so restricted and surrounded by so much disinformation that it simply was consumed by its own "black" nature. Similar
investigations into the phenomena still exist (and are appropriately classified), however, the raw information collected through the 40s, 50s, 60s and
70s is completely lost to today's efforts. Similar research by the Soviets would have suffered the same with the collapse of the USSR.
Today's government has far better things to do than worry about UFOs. Most contingency plans have already been developed, and as far as the
administrations and Congress are concerned - UFOs are a natural phenomena and/or misinterpreted aircraft sightings. All problems are solved - no need
to dump money into programs that aren't necessary. We already have a plan if they show up - and any reports of them showing up are simply figments
of our imagination. It's a perfect example of modern legal speak.
Thus, any existing investigations into UFOs are on the existing budgets authorized by Congress (wouldn't be the first time we laundered the budget to
fund some unauthorized projects), and are likely rather limited by difficulties in operating across the various branches (which is becoming far less
of a limiting factor as time goes on).
Second; is the idea that the original UFO investigations remained open and alive within the government, working to reverse-engineer technology and
establish communications, as well as suppress the spread of UFO reports to the public.
Regardless, such information would not be distributed under any official means. The rewards of such an elaborate plan are so small with regards to
the effort that it is not very necessary. The media will have the U.S. converted to a fascist state before this plan even gets close.
Trust me, I want to know what our government agencies know about UFOs, as well. I'm in the Navy, and you hear things through the grape vine that
indicate that a lot more is known than can be admitted.... but it is pretty much a case of "once you know, you understand why they don't tell
everyone." And seeing our responses to things as simple as Avian Bird Flu and how subject we are to panic.... our response to the information our
governments have about UFOs would likely not go over so well - controlled or uncontrolled.
