There an extraterrestrial presence representing a "phenomenology problem" for the U.S. government?
Or is the "phenomenology problem" a useful cover for sweeping deep black budget programs under the "nut-case" carpet?
Quoting former UFO Working Group member, CIA analyst and more recently Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) MASINT official Ron Pandolfi, from an email to one of his associates who consults to CIA in the private sector, one must generally define:
What you know absolutely to be true.
What you assess to be true based on indirect information.
What you know nothing about at all.
What we know to be absolutely true is this: the U.S. government has been very interested in unusual phenomena for a variety of purposes since the 1950s, and probably much earlier.
Those interests, which have been concealed in deep black shadows under rules of secrecy, range from the use of unexplained phenomena like UFO reports for psychological operations, to the use of psychics to gather intelligence against America's enemies. (Examples are provided in previous articles in this series, and are available at STARpod.org.)
One thing is clear, regardless of the intended purpose behind government involvement with the very weird:
There remains a clear pattern of government concealment of the core of the story behind the strands of the story known to the public.
As surmised by investigative author Gus Russo in his "Real X-files" article (also available for viewing at the STARpod.org website), the government's motivation "it now appears certain, can be summed up in two words: national security."
A recent example comes by way of Lee Graham, presently retired, who was accused during his years working in the aerospace industry of "asking questions outside his need to know."
Graham continues to ask questions by taking advantage of the Freedom of Information Act.
Time and again the government has denied Graham's FOIA requests on the grounds of national security.
Graham recently appealed a request concerning detection of extraterrestrial artificially controlled objects detected by an American early warning satellite.
STARpod.org on KNOWING THE FUTURE: CIA, 9/11, UFOs and the Extraterrestrial Presence
First in a new series.
What would you do if you could see into the future? And what if your visions were filled with images of terror?
The CIA and other intelligence agencies have been asking that question from the beginning.
Is it really possible to know the future?
Ask a modern physicist steeped in Einstein's theory of General Relativity, in which space and time may be curved into time machines by wormholes and exotic negative energy, and the answer might be a highly qualified maybe.
Mix in a little quantum theory, and interpret the results as parallel universes, and the answer, as explained by popular physicist and author Michio Kaku is "Apparently, time travel seems to be consistent with the known laws of physics."
The truth is, as always, stranger than simple explanations of time machines portrayed in popular films and television.
