This is just a theory, but with the recent up surge in media attention given to UFOs and the growing public interest.......
I see people say this all the time. Every time there is a UFO show on Larry King, a new X-Files movie, some kid in grade school having UFOs in a math
problem, or an energizer bunny commercial for crying out loud, lol....point is, I don't think that Aliens and UFOs being in the media are anything
new, nor any more than normal right now. If you are on ATS a lot, and I know you are, you will see this being put forth countless times, over many
years on here. But nothing ever happens. Wonder why?
Plus, about the growing public interest thing....I hope that is not the case right now. If public interest surges to the point that national news
media actually take a serious look into this subject, they will find it full of idiots, ignorant blind believers, hoaxers....in short everything and
everyone that make up the stereotypical "UFO whack job." Expose that side, the largest and most vocal side of "Ufology" to the public, and
well....you will have to wait a long time before you will see public interest again...thats for sure. Better to clean up the community, police our
own, so when public interest grows to the point that a responsible discussion is at hand, we will be ready to represent ourselves with logic, reason
and common sense...denouncing the absurdities of the past the have, to this point, spoken for us to the public at large.
do you think the U.S. Military/Government are thinking of ways to manipulate, inject disinformation, or try to stop media coverage of
I think they looked into that in the past, like well before the 70's maybe, but I don't think they are using mass media to gauge any sort of public
reaction of exert unseen control over the populace at this time. One reason, I think our government is too incompetent to do something with such
finesse. Plus, Hollywood does it for them for free anyway.
Think about it...they must be getting so many FOIA requests for UFO information and it must be driving them mad!
And it may be possible, however unlikely, that they do in fact have nothing of substance in any file to share. And I bet the foia requested documents
concerning UFO's and Aliens is very, very, very low on the list of documents requested anyway. Important to us, but not to the public at large
presently I think.
Either they are going to start letting some information leak out, or they're going to pull back and tighten up the reigns and try to
extinguish the media coverage and public interest just like they tried to do with Project Blue Book and the termination of it.
I'm torn on this one. I tend to think that the government (after dealing with them for years) are complete, incompetent fools. Fool enough that they
couldn't keep anything secret anyway.
True story. I designed, sold and installed a finishing system for modern armored carriers in the United States. After the multi-million dollar
system was up and running, the military came in to sign off on the process, and took issue with the curing cycle of the complete vehicle paint job,
which was 160F. They said the vehicles, because of the wiring and BP glass, could not see cure cycle times higher than 100F. THEY WERE PAINTING THEM
DESERT TAN FOR CRYING OUT LOUD. That is how STUPID the government is. I have, literally, dozens of firsthand stories like this. From organizations
such as DARPA, NASA and every branch of the military.
I digress here a tad I think. My point is, I don't think the government is holding any reigns to tighten up in the first place. If they had the
reigns ever held, it is now locked in a file somewhere, in an unmanned office, everybody is dead and retired, and there may be, really, no one of any
consequence in the government that knows jack squat about it perhaps?
